    That Sterling Incident

    It's still an alleged incident, how the fart Rio said it's no doubt what so ever, and linking this to some black rights issue. There are idiots in every club, ban them if proven guilty, it's not some Chelsea issue as Ian Wright trying to play up to.

    Chelsea v Man City (PL) Sat 8th Dec 17:30 UK

    Did not see this one coming, pretty amazed by the result to be honest. Pep played in our hands by not picking a striker, once Sterling and his mates wasted 2-3 clear cut chances, thought this could be our night. Hazard was frustrated until the goal, he did what he had to do and for once someone ran into the box and finished the chance off. City pressed up so much in the first 45, and inevitably dropped off in the second, and we were the better team in both ends of the field. The second goal was a bonus, we looked pretty comfortable with the solo goal lead. Kante had his best game of the season, though Kovacic was pretty good. The front 3 were good in counter attacking, although I reckon it's an one off solution that the default. Defence did well, it's a lot easier when we not pushing up all the time and defending a high line, Kepa made some good saves to keep us in the game. We won the game we didn't expect to, and lost the one we should have won, so bottle half full this week.

    Eden Hazard

    Got say Hazard's form has dropped off quite significantly in the last month or so, when was the last time he scored? I know he had problems, but unlikely his team mates he's only playing league game, so fatigue is not an excuse. He's still running the ball, but quite easily marked out in recent games. Maybe it's a form thing, or is the contract talk start getting into his head. We all want him to stay, but to make him the most highly paid player in the league, we'd expect to see him contribute more.

    Welcome N’Golo Kante

    Just play Kante in his natural position, and give others more freedom to attack, it's about balance and not working against possession and attacking football. The defence misses his protection, having him so close to the final third actually interrupts our attacking player. He's not going to take player on, put a cross in, or shoot, he's counter productive in his new role. It doesn't take a genius to figure it out, unless Sarri's target this year is a top 8 finish, he doesn't have the luxury to keep playing Kante like this.

    Andreas Christensen

    Was Luiz injured our just rotated? If there was one league game for Christensen, it should have been against Fulham at home, a 'gentle' game to ease back in the league. He hasn't played a single minute in the league this season, of course he's going to struggle. Luiz probably just throw a dummy tackle and let the striker ran past him for the first goal, Kepa should have done better, that's why we don't see many goals scored like that, the least Gk could do is to get a hand on it and results in a rebound, NOT straight into the goal.

    Wolves V Chelsea (PL) Wed 5th Dec 19:45 UK

    Disastrous performance and result, from No1 to 29, there was no player who could walk away from the game with any merit. The effort just not there, after we scored the goal we just cruised the game for 30 minutes when we should have took the game to them, not competing for the duels, not running , just gave the game away. The passing was sloppy, and nobody wanted to do anything with the ball, apart from the few runs from Hazard. 2 goals resulted from gifting away possession, although the second goal was resulted from foul play, Willian and his mates had chance to run back and get back into position, and they didn't. The last 15-20 was awful, had a target man and not 1 decent cross into the box. On the tactical side, Kante has to play his best position or we will keep losing game. Apart from Willian, he's the only 1 with goo work rate, yet we let the game pass him by having him out of position. The predictable changes were laughable, if we couldn't break their 3 defenders system with our best team, what's making like to like change without formation change going to solve? Enough rant, this is going to be a long season, better get used to losing more games.

    Cesc Fabregas

    I'd keep him until the end of the season if not another year. He's a better long passer than Jorginho, and applied trade for years in a possession based team, to be honest he's under played under Sarri.

    Wolves V Chelsea (PL) Wed 5th Dec 19:45 UK

    Wolves will enjoy this game lot more than playing against Cardiff and Huddsfield. Fortunately they aren't in good form and not having a prolific striker, think it's the right time to play them. Got win this game, I'm not confident about our chances against City on the weekend.

    Christian Pulisic

    Nobody will pay 70M, his value will go down rapidly as he's not re-signing and not playing games. I think it will be around 50 in January, and 40 in the summer. I'm not sure about him, certainly got promise but not elite. Speaking of Potential, we already have a 18 year old we are trying to hold on, sign Pulisic before that contract is sorted will not end well.

    Following Our Nearest & Dearest Rivals, 2018/2019

    I'd love to see United win in the last minute against Arsenal and Jose do a Klopp impression on the sideline, pretty sure the media will hate it and brand it as no class. After they lost the CL final ( deservedly), Klopp joined a bunch of drunk idiots to sign f* the referee, classy manager!
  11. Nobody expected us to break a record to buy out a GK, so I'd say the big boss will spend when the opportunity arrives. We won't be signing every player we are linked with, that's for sure

    Spurs beat us last week by out pressing us, Arsenal did the same to Spurs and won the game, hopefully we will step up the effort against City this weekend. It will be interesting to if teams are able to keep up the pressing game by March/April.

    Chelsea v Fulham (PL) Sun 2nd Dec 12:00 UK

    Not a performance to be remembered of, but a vital win. Until RLC came on, we never looked like wrapping up the game, and if Fulham had that little extra quality, they would have scored. I believe this was the game we could give Christensen or Cahill or go, Sarri refused, and I bet we will see the exact back 4 against Wolves. Kante assisted the first goal, but still lots of minutes passed him by with his new role. We need at least 1 midfielder who's willing and capable of running and shooting, right now that seems to be option off the bench than default. With the results last night, although we were back to the third, any slip up in the next 2 games we are likely to be fifth, tougher challenges ahead. I reckon Sarri picked his team with rotation in mind, pretty sure Willian/Morata will start next game.

    Chelsea v Fulham (PL) Sun 2nd Dec 12:00 UK

    A must win for us, or we will be chasing in the top 4 race. I don't expect Raneri to fix their defence in 2 weeks, so if we are playing with a positive attitude and take our chances, the game will be wrapped up before half time. We can't afford the slow start we had in the last 2-3 games, their best chance is for us to chase the game. We will see whether Sarri respond to last week, or keeping faith with his 'untouchables'. Barkley or RLC must start, if not both. For once, both Giroud and Morata are in a bit of scoring form, reckon Giroud may get picked because his link up work.
  15. Got pretty much everything we wanted from the match, won the game, scored some goals, played youth and bench players, and a number of players showed good form. CHO looked a great prospect, able to play with both foot and not afraid to have a go at goal, a breath of fresh air to our predictable attack. I understand Sarri will hold him back for a bit longer, but with the festive season coming up, he will get time in the league sooner or later if Sarri picks players on form. First time in a long time both strikers scored goals, and looked confident. I have never seen a player so angry after scoring a goal like Morata, somebody must have taken his lunch box, but it's better be angry and scoring than the other way around. The sent off made the game easy for us, but it's an error from our aggressive pressing, so the players could take credit for that. Christensen/Cahill looked solid, they aren't going to be spectacular but at least they are playing safe like normal defenders, something we don't get from Luiz these days. I reckon Barkley played deeper so he wasn't as threatening as RLC, either of those 2 must start on the weekend.
