  1. Maybe you're confused, two players may be age mates but one may be better than the other. You don't know more than the Chelsea board. Go and watch the clips of this Kounde on YouTube so that you can know more about him.
  2. I'm really surprised by the comments of some of us in this forum especially in this thread about this Haaland situation. Since yesterday, I feel we should have been happy that it seems the club is submitting a £130m bid for Haaland. We needed a striker and the club is submitting the bid now but some of us are saying the guy will not come. Why will the guy not come?
  3. I've looked at the two formations being rumoured that we will use next season. The 343 we used last season and 424. The defense and the wing backs, I feel they are still okay for next season. But the midfield, in the 343 formation, I think we need two players there, but we only have three players there at the moment, if one of them gets injured, then we have only two left, then if another one gets injured at thesame time, then we only have one left. So, I feel we need one more midfielder in that position. I will really like us to buy Declan Rice this summer. Yes, I know that might mean reduced playing time for them, but I feel if we really want to be a big European side, we really need a big team of superstars who might have reduced playing time and yet have ambition to win big things for the club. I feel Declan Rice will add quality to our team. However, if we can't get him, I really hope Kovacic will be fit throughout the season. In the 424 formation, i believe the two midfielders must be solid to prevent the backline from being exposed. If that is the case, then Declan Rice will still be the best candidate alongside Kante. In attack, in the 343 formation, we may have Mount, Havertz and Werner. We may not need to get Haaland. Pulisic, Ziyech, Abraham and Broja can also be coming in in those positions. In the 424 formation, I really don't know how Tuchel will do it, who will play the left wing in the attack? who will play the right wing in the attack? Who are the two strikers that will play? I don't understand. If we want to use this system, then we may need to buy a new left wing attacker. But for the right wing forward, I think we have Ziyech who can play there, but I don't fancy Havertz there. For the two strikers, we might need to buy a good striker. I feel the 424 formation is underutilizing the players we have. Because I think we will not be using Havertz, Mount or Pulisic. So maybe the 343 formation will still be the best formation for us to use next season.
  4. I don't know, it's like I felt bad about how we ended in the premier league last season. We needed to be convincing but we weren't and you can't win the premier league with those kinds of performances. For the coming season, if we want to win the premier league, we must show that we are better than teams like Aston Villa, Leicester or whatever their names are. And we shouldn't bring ourselves low to the level of those teams. If we want to win the premier league, I feel matches against teams like that, we should be winning them. For next season, we need more solid performances. In terms of recruitment, Declan Rice is compulsory, we need to get him this summer. Then, in the case of a striker, we do not need another striker, we have Werner. I feel he was doing well, then maybe by mistake, I think he missed a scoring chance, what is the big deal about that? And then since then, maybe he was listening to what the fans were saying, i think he has been bad. i think that's bad. If everyone of us lived our lives based on what other people say, I think we will have bad lives. We live our lives the way we know we should live it and not how people say we should live it. So I feel Werner was wrong to have been listening to people. I think he's a good player, and if he stops listening to what people are saying, I think he will be good. So we have Werner, Abraham and Armando Broja. I think we are ok. I feel Armando Broja is ok. If you've not seen his clips, you can check it on YouTube. I think he's ok, if we can develop them, I think they are ok for us.
  5. I feel Jorginho is a good player. But I feel a system where we play him in front of the defense does not work against some opponents. Maybe against opponents like Man Utd, or maybe against Arsenal towards the end of last season, or maybe against some opponents last season. So, because of that we can be using that system at times but in some matches, I will like us to have a different system. And again I kind of like for a team to have not too many different formations, but at least more than one formation. I feel like last season, we only used one system. I want us to have at least two different formations this coming season, so that when we are playing against some teams, we can use the second formation. In the system we had last season, I feel Jorginho has a weakness to his game, physical weakness. That could be a weakness against good opponents. So I feel when we are playing some opponents, we should play a solid 4231 with two solid DMs. And that is why I think we need to buy another strong DM like Declan Rice for that type of system for next season so that we can use the two systems next season. I don't know if we have the financial muscle to do this kind of thing where two players who I think are world class will be playing thesame position throughout a season. This will mean reduced playing time for them. I don't know if Declan Rice can accept to come to us and be doing that, and I don't know if Jorginho can also be playing that role for us. But, if they do, I feel it will be very nice. Then we can challenge for the premier league and the champions league again.
  6. With Jorginho, I feel he's a good player. But I feel a system where we play him in front of the defense does not work against some opponents. Maybe against opponents like Man Utd, or maybe against Arsenal towards the end of last season, or maybe against some opponents last season. So, because of that we can be using that system at times but in some matches, I will like us to have a different system.

  7. What about all the right things I said. Even if Man City may not be able to get him before us, but you do think clubs like Man Utd, Madrid, Barcelona or PSG may get him ahead of us, so why not go after another striker that we can get. So that our heart does not end up being broken in the end when we don't get Haaland, and we need a good striker to start the new season, and then by then it may be too late to go after another striker. So why not start figuring out how to go after another striker now so we can get another person in case we don't get Haaland.
  8. Also, a player like Haaland who is being linked to us, I don't think he can come to us. I think clubs like Man City, Man Utd, Madrid, PSG, Barcelona may get him. So, why not get a premier league striker that we can get, and he may come good for us.
  9. Just a suggestion anyway, but I feel if we want to be better than other clubs in the premier league, we can buy strikers in those premier league clubs. If I'm not wrong, I think that was what big clubs in the premier league normally do those days. Our rivals like Tottenham, Man Utd, Man City, Arsenal, or Liverpool may not sell their strikers to us, but we can flex our muscles by buying strikers from less big premier league teams. I feel we can still get good strikers from clubs like Wolves, Westham, Southampton, Sheffield or those types of clubs. Players like Neto, Podence, Raul Jimenez etc. If we give them twice the salary they are collecting now, and give their clubs good money, they can come good for us. And most importantly, we do it under the radar. With good players around them, I feel they can do well with us. You do better than all these other premier league clubs by buying their best players and using them to win them. If not, every time we play small clubs like Aston Villa, etc, they will be winning us. And I don't think we can win the premier league like that. I don't know, but I'm always sad when we don't win those small premier league clubs. Maybe it's because as a Chelsea fan, I always know that there are certain clubs that are not as good as us, and therefore we should be beating them, and maybe because that is how it has always been over the years, please let's keep it like that.
  10. Many of the things we do are against ourselves, and that is why I am talking on this issue about Kai Havertz. When he came to the club, he always had this talent. And it's just like whatever natural ability that we all have individually as human beings. Maybe, we know how to play football or maybe it is we know how to sing, I mean all these talents, etc. It will be so annoying for some people in some places to now start saying you don't know how to do those things, maybe how to play the football or to sing. I give you an example, take a look at one very good singer in the world, will anybody in the world now say that that singer does not know how to sing, I am not talking about when the singer is now old and no longer sings, but when he is still young, and in his full potential, do u say he doesn't know how to do those things? Havertz came to the club, and I think Lampard did not know how to manage him when he first came (I said that in the earlier post), but then as we continued in the season, Havertz was getting better. And I think that was when we got that 433 formation under Lampard, it was like a very good formation for him, with Mount, him and Kante in the Midfield. We needed his passes in the midfield, and I think that formation was okay for him. But then again, the whole team fell apart under Lampard, so will anybody say because the whole team fell apart under Lampard, that Havertz should be blamed for that? Was it that Havertz was not good at that time or that Lampard as a coach did not know how to do his job as the manager? So I don't know which time people are talking about when they say Havertz was not good at some point last season. Do we know the quality of this guy Havertz that we are talking about? Is just like talking about Messi those days when he was younger that he was poor. It is not the goals that Messi scores that make him a good player, it is because Messi knows how to play football so well. Same thing with this guy, he is very good, and so please, he doesn't need all these frustrations we are giving him. I am saying this because this is a Chelsea forum, I expect Chelsea fans to be encouraging him so that he can be better for us even if fans of other clubs are against him, we should be supporting him. We should see to how he can become world class for us, afterall it is to our benefit. Then we can be competing with the likes of PSG, Madrid, Barcelona, Man United etc.
  11. Are you aware that people have been critical of the guy?
  12. Which part of what I wrote don't you understand?
  13. I think many of us are just disrespectful. Just because the guy is a superstar at the age of 21, should people be so jealous of him as they have been. A player like Cesc Fabregas, if I'm not wrong, I think he was already a superstar at maybe the age of 20 or so, so why are people so jealous of this guy? I think we have to be putting things in perspective. If the reason for all these is because maybe the guy is coming to compete with Mason Mount, it should not be a problem. If after series of tests, Mason Mount is better than him, and we only have one slot for the two of them, then we can sell Havertz to another team. But I don't think Mount is as good as this guy. But it's not a problem, we are different in life, if Havertz has a better footballing talent than Mount, then Mount can still be coming in after 60 minutes in the second half. Then Mount will use these years to develop as a player, maybe very soon we can now be playing him with Havertz in the Midfield. But we must not lose Havertz to any of our rivals. He will make them so strong, and I don't want to be crying everyday I watch Chelsea play if we don't have good players and we lose football matches. Or if I see Havertz in another team and he helps them to win us, or win the premier league, or the champions league, while we are coming fourth in the premier league. We should not apply favouritism with the issue of Mount and Havertz. I think Mount has a very good shot, but even with that quality, if he grows older a little bit more, that quality may show better. But Mount is not a very good passer of the ball like Havertz, and I will pick a good passer of the ball in the midfield over someone who is not a very good passer of the ball. If we can play the two of them together, fine, but if not let Havertz be starting, while Mount comes in after 60 minutes in a match. Yes, I know Mount is British, and the English Premier League is played in England, and maybe many English fans want him to be playing, but he will still be playing for England even if he is still developing at Chelsea, it is not wrong for a player to be developing, and that is what I think Mount should be doing at Chelsea. If English fans want to be seeing Mount play for England, it is good, but I don't think he is ready, for now I think England has Grealish, Madison, and Tielemans ( I don't know if he's English). But for now, let's still allow Mount to be developing. Also, I don't like the way Frank Lampard handled Havertz when he first came. At least, he should have allowed the guy to rest for about one week or more, when we bought him, before playing him. If I'm not wrong, I think the transfer saga around this guy was so long, and when you just buy a player, I think he will need time to settle down in the new country. Lampard should have waited for a week or two before playing him. He should have allowed him to use that one or two weeks to hit the gym, train with the team, understand the formation of the team and maybe gain match fitness before playing him. But I think what Lampard did was to play him maybe three or four days after he arrived, then I think it was against Liverpool, how do you do that? Then, if I'm not wrong, I think Lampard played him on the right wing in that match. I think that is wrong. The guy is so good.
  14. I don't know what we came here to talk about. Tuchel has all the players in his disposal, he should win football matches for us. How are we supposed to be afraid of Leicester city? Just play players that can give good passes that can split opponents' defences. Players like Havertz, Ziyech and Pulisic. Then let James be playing that central defence role and play Hudson Odoi as right wing back. Then if Kovacic is back, let him play.
  15. And if you think we don't have the personnel now, why is it that people are not talking about the need for us to get a good creative attacking midfielder now, instead people are talking about Haaland or Lukaku.
