  1. It was just a bad day at the office, everyone has them. More important, is how we react. We desperately need Chilwell Thiago and Pulisic fit ASAP. They will make a World of difference and maybe Frank will soon be able to settle down a regular starting XI. My biggest concern is the constant changing of personnel and formations. I get the personnel bit as we have still got injuries and lack of fitness but the formations look poorly thought out. With this squad, I think that 4-2-3-1 is the answer. Kepa, Christensen, Alonso and Dave are just not going to be good enough, so they should be released
  2. Anyone any idea whether Pulisic is fit? I would love to see him torment Liverpool, but he is also in my fantasy league squad and I need the points
  3. Callum Hudson Oh Dear, so very apt. I too would love this guy to become the super star that we all thought he would, but I am afraid I just can't see it. I think he is "freewheeling" on his big contract.
  4. A new keeper is a must. I hope that Mendy is not a bit of a "panic" buy. If Petr is correct and is decent, then this window is a 9/10. (not quite sure what would constitute a 10, Hazard's return maybe ??)
  5. Hate to say that I would rather see Tammy leave than lose Giroud. He is a class act, a great example to the many younger players that we now have and scores almost every time he is given a chance.
  6. If all of the squad were 100% fit, I would go with a 4-2-3-1 GK ; Not Kepa Back four ; James, Timori, Silva (Capt.) Chilwell Holding ; Kante Kovacic Attacking midfield : Pulisic, Havertz, Ziyech Striker; Werner Subs; Mount, RLC, CHO, Giroud, Abraham, Dave, Rudiger, Gilmour Sell ; Alonso, Zouma. Jorginho, Barkley (can't believe I am typing this) Christensen, Emerson, Caballero
  7. I am better than Kepa, even though I am only 5ft 6ins 😉
  8. If spending £20m on Mendy helps to turn Kepa into the quality of keeper that we were expecting for our World record fee, I suppose it will be money well spent. If we sell Kepa we will lose a lot more than £20m of our investment. Therefore if spending £20m saves his career at Chelsea by forcing him into improving simply by having Mendy as competition then surely this must be a good thing. Lets face it, Kepa and Mendy as the 2 keepers is better than Kepa and Caballero.
  9. PS remember the bad old days on Michael Emanalo 👿
  10. This lady, will not let us down Timo Werner Hakim Ziyech Thiago Silva Ben Chilwell Xavier Mbuyamba Kai Havertz will soon be ours.
  11. I agree that he is a damn good manager, but do think that he totally lost his way after The Champions League final defeat. This was most likely because he wanted to "push on" with developing his side with new and better players but Levy would not countenance it. He seemed to throw his dummy out of the pram and supposedly lost the dressing room. Not the traits of a top, top Manager 🤔
