  1. 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.
  2. Yet another trash game against Everton, what a surprise. Zouma has been atrocious. Kepa can't pass for sh*t.

    I wonder if the club has made an enquiry about Haaland. I doubt we're in the mix, but if we can be, we should. He's unbelievable.

    Willian

    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.
  5. I'd be inclined to go with a midfield three, dropping Mount for Jorginho for this one. I'd also play James and Emerson, but would understand playing Azpi for his experience and leadership. Willian, Pulisic and Tammy pick themselves. As do Zouma, Tomori and Kepa.
  6. That game was mental. Frustrated not to win in it the end, but I feel it would have been incredibly harsh on Ajax. We got pretty unlucky conceding two own goals, but our defending of the wide areas was simply not good enough. Our first penalty was definitely there, but I felt like the second was soft. His arm was by his side...the yellow card on top of the penalty seemed liked overkill to me. Just like our 5th being ruled off was harsh with Tammy's hand by his side, not knowing where the ball was. Only four minutes at the end was shambolic, but as I said, a draw is a fair result all things considered. I thought in general the refereeing was abysmal. We seem to be playing better away at the moment, so hopefully we seal our spot with a win in Spain.
  7. 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.
  8. America! f**k Yeah! Coming again to save the motherf**king day yeah!

    Tammy Abraham

    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.
  10. Can only assume the exertions from midweek was the reason behind the frankly alarming shift from the first 20 minutes to the rest of the game. I was begging for a draw throughout the second half.

    Willian

    I don't normally question Willian's workrate. Performance, yes, workrate, no. That was genuinely shocking.
  12. He's our one undoubtedly world class player. I love him.
  13. 4-0 is harsh, but in the end, people will look back on this and see that United smashed us. Oh well. Need to do better.

    Tammy Abraham

    Shame his early fizzer of a shot didn't go in. Could have been the confidence boost he needed. It wasn't to be.
