  1. Any scenario where we replace Kepa with Oblak is a good one...and it won't happen.
  2. I was pretty frustrated when we shelled out 70million for him. I get we were in a bind with having sold Courtois...but that was always an exorbitant fee, especially for a keeper who wasn't linked to any other clubs at the time (I know Real had been there in the previous window). I wished at the time we'd have given Bulka a shot. It would have been risky, but I thought he had the talent to take that chance. I do understand the hesitation there....it was probably too big a risk...but to go and spend that fee on a goalkeeper of Kepa's size and build was baffling. If we didn't think we could get a good keeper at a reasonable price, we should have signed someone cheaper and use them as a stop game until we had a chance to explore the market more. Kepa was bought in to help Sarriball...playing from the back..one problem...his passing just isn't very good. He has no command of the area...and despite his shot stopping being his best skill...he finds a way to not stop any shots. The worst part of it. Because we threw away 70million for him, there's absolutely no risk of him being replaced, because no-one would get close to paying a decent fee where we could recooperate a significant portion of our outlay. So we'll be stuck with him. I wanted to like him. I've been waiting game after game to see some big improvement in his game, but he just doesn't seem likely. I hope he proves me wrong.
  3. There's no denying his flaws as a player from previous seasons, but he really seems to have taken a proper leadership role at the club this season. It's like he sees getting this young side to perform as a mission for himself to take on. He's been brilliant so far.
  4. Honestly, I didn't think we should buy him. I thought he didn't offer enough to regularly command a place in our midfield. Obviously I didn't see the injuries being such an issue.... But I've got to say. He's brilliant. His dribbling was his best attribute last year, but he's really become so well rounded now. Yes, he still can't score to save his life...but the rest of his game is unbelievable. He works so hard, and his protection of the ball under pressure is ridiculous. Great player.
  5. America! f**k Yeah! Coming again to save the motherf**king day yeah!
  6. Can't judge him on this game. Nothing he could do when he came on. We weren't on the front foot, and he was too often isolated. He hasn't shown he has the ability to make the difference yet either though. He'll get more chances...and we'll know at the end of the season whether he has a future at Chelsea or not.
  7. I don't normally question Willian's workrate. Performance, yes, workrate, no. That was genuinely shocking.
  8. He's our one undoubtedly world class player. I love him.
  9. Shame his early fizzer of a shot didn't go in. Could have been the confidence boost he needed. It wasn't to be.
  10. I wanted Sarri to stay, and was very skeptical about the hiring of Frank this early in his managerial career...but I'd be lying if I said this didn't give me the warm fuzzies. He is here now, and it feels good, and needless to say through my natural pessimism, I am very excited and offer my full support to our returning hero.
  11. It is riveting television. Made for uncomfortable viewing some times, but wow, just really stellar writing and acting throughout. I guess it is easier to maintain those standards when it's only over the course of five episodes. Perfect length.
  12. Edit: Pressed submit once, it posted twice....why does it take so long to post and then do it twice anyway. Ergh
  13. I'm glad I got to see Eden play live. Having only ever seen him on tv, coming over in March and April let me see him play. That's something to remember.
  14. When I woke up at 5am to watch this game...I was not overly optimistic. But I was also weirdly calm about it. I think because we didn't have CL qualification on the line. That said, I would have been a bitter mess if we'd gone on to lose. But we didn't...we won, and in doing so, doomed Arsenal some more...so it's all the sweeter. Well done to the boys, and Sarri.
  15. He's a cracking player, he really is. I've thought for a long time he's our most dynamic midfielder. He big, strong and fast, and importantly, a very adept finisher. In a midfield three, he has to be in there. He's the closest we've got to Frank Lampard nowadays (they're not the same style of player, and he will never reach the goalscoring heights of Frank, but he offers something very different to all our other midfielders)
