    I was always taught that it was wrong to speak ill of the dead, no matter for whom they played. I sincerely hope that his assailant is punished to the full extent of the law for the life he has taken away.


    I would like to make a short statement at this time:


    R.I.P. Virgil van Dijk

    While your time with us was cut tragically short, you were still able to achieve some incredible things.

    Your hair reminded me of Mario Melchiot, which always made me smile.

    You took away one of the great standards of mockery of our time, and restored dignity to those people who are least able to spell the word.

    May the refuse of that city flow richly with untouched chicken dinners on this night.



    I have also written a poem:


    Virgil van Dijk

    You cost seventy-five million pounds

    I typoed your Christian name once

    It spelled 'Virgin' - this made me laugh

    One cannot imagine how much I regret that now.

    "The best centre back of all time?" - I am frequently asked

    Tonight - I will pretend that you were





    The reaction to his death Injury has been ridiculous but hilarious at the same time. I think this is my favourite thing to come out of it so far

    Besides a mistake at the start where he rushed in for a header and missed it, he was absolutely solid as a rock. His passing is exceptional. 

    There was a moment in the second half where he played it between two Sevilla players to get us moving quickly, but our midfielders decided to slow it down and play safe. That really annoyed me because Silva could clearly see an opening for us to actually create something.

    We can do 3-3 and we can do 0-0, now we just need to combine those and beat united 3-0 at the weekend.

    Think it is clear how important Mendy and Silva are going to be for us. A clean sheet and that's despite Zouma's best efforts to give them a few chances!

    I worry for Silva over a full season, especially a season like this one where so many games are going to be played in a short space of time. He's still world class, but you can see him struggling to recover quickly after straining to win the ball. At his age, it's only natural, and if he was to play every game, I think it would be inevitable that he would pick up a few injuries.

    He won't be able to play every game, which means one of the others will have to fill in. The problem is that I don't trust any of them to go a single game without making a ridiculous error that concedes a goal. None of them can seem to go a full 90 minutes without doing it.

  4. People keep blaming Lampard's defensive coaching, but as we could see once again tonight, there was nothing wrong with it. The problem isn't Lampard, it's the players making individual errors. On another day, Zouma's mistakes would have been punished and that would have had nothing to do with Lampard's defensive coaching tonight.

    It's the players that are to blame for most of our defensive problems, not the coaching team. Kepa, Christensen, Zouma and Rudiger have been taking in turns making errors for over a year now.

    The Mount-LW experiment needs to end asap. He's just not a good winger and Pulisic needs to play there to get the best out of Pulisic.

    We can't even use the excuse that he is playing there because of injuries anymore. We have a perfectly capable winger in Hudson-Odoi on the bench. Mount just isn't involved enough on the wing, and his movement and decision making is poor. He's not a winger, and there is no point shoehorning him into the side for the sake of it. He's a midfielder, so play him in midfield or not at all.

    Lampard and Sarri could not  use him properly and people claiming N'golo is washed? The state of our mid wasn't our biggest concern under Maurizio but now that it is who is to be blame for not using the best DM in the world as an actual DM? 

    Lampard of all the people in the world should understand the best what is to have a machine like that behind you. 

    It's been said many times now that Kante is not a DM. I would prefer him staying a bit deeper than being a box to box midfielder in our current set up, but Kante can't play DM. He doesn't have the positional discipline to play there, he would roam too much and leave gaps.

    Should we be worrying about our top 4 credentials?

    For sure. It's not just United and Leicester we need to worry about this season, but Tottenham, Arsenal and Everton as well. If we didn't have a sh*t defence, then I wouldn't be worried, I would actually be less worried about top 4 and I would believe we would have a chance at winning the title.
