  1. Listen, forget the dumb statistics, so you are saying Jorginho is better than Fabinho. Read my analysis and for once understand what I am trying to say. Give me your own opinions about everything I wrote. You either support what I said and give reasons or you oppose it and give reasons.
  2. Thanks. This has been the solution in big games since Jorginho joined this club but some fans and the managers didn't see it. When I mentioned it in this forum for the match against Palace at the weekend, some people didn't agree with me, but it is the way forward.
  3. You just seem to think you will happen to beat a team regardless of the kind of players you use to play against them. If you read my analysis, you will see that I analysed City and us very clearly. It's not about just saying anything, consider the facts, how have we fared against the top teams this season, that is the fact before us. What can we do differently against the top teams? is there any solution in our team so that all the top teams do not flog us throughout this season. we have not played Spurs, Arsenal, City (home and away), that is six matches, if we lose six matches this season, plus Man Utd and Liverpool (away), that is eight matches against the top teams. If we lose eight more matches this season, can we finish in the top four. We must look at the situation very well.
  4. Should Jorginho play? Is there anything Jorginho will do against the big teams that Kovacic cannot do. I think we should ask ourselves, if Jorginho plays, are we going to be able to stop Aguero, bernando Silva, Sterling, de bruyne, Silva, Mahrez, Rodri, etc. I think that is the most important question we should be asking ourselves. We must make sure man city does not win the midfield battle. We need Mount to support the attackers, we can't drop Mount. Against City, it must be a war, you must not allow them to have too much possession of the ball. If they have too much possession of the ball, they will beat you silly. To those arguing with me when I said Jorginho should be playing against the lesser teams but not against the big teams. Against City last season at Etihad, we used our normal starting eleven with Jorginho, Hazard, and everybody, we were thrashed 6-0 by Man city. And, under Sarri, we were having it very easy with the lesser teams. Jorginho organises the team, makes good passes to the midfielders and from the midfielders to the attacking players, and we were winning the lesser teams. However, against City, we were thrashed 6-0. Doesn't that say something about the team that although Jorginho helps the team against the lesser teams, we may have to find a solution when we are playing with the bigger teams because we all know that anybody who plays in Jorginho and Kante's positions must be good defensively to protect the defence, but Jorginho is not good defensively, and big teams will expose this weakness. If people did not understand what I was trying to say before about Jorginho, I think they should be able to understand with this one. We cannot do without Jorginho against the weaker teams, but against top teams that are obviously better than us at the moment, vis Man City, Man Utd, Liverpool, or against teams that are decent like Leicester, Crystal Palace, everton, spurs etc., if we want to try to get something out of the game, We should be dropping Jorginho and be playing Kante, Kovacic and Mount. That is what top coaches do when they are playing against a team that is better than them. That is all I'm saying. Against City next weekend, I think the team should look like this. Kepa James Tomori Zouma Emerson Kante Kovacic Mount Pulisic Willian Abraham.
  5. No, look at the tone of my post, Im not saying Lampard should go or be Mourinho's assistant. One of the best traits to have as a person is to allow people to criticise you. If you hate criticisms, its a sign that you are still immature. Im only criticising Lampard, and it is meant to improve him as a manager.
  6. listen Davey baby, I thought you would be more tactful than what you just wrote now. In the days of Barcelona's tiki taka, was it not joy to watch? We played like Barcelona last season. You can check all our ball possession last season, we had a lot of ball possession last season. That's why I said it was joy to watch.
  7. What Lampard said concerning Emerson is not tenable. This is the reason why not all of us can be managers. It's a talent, I think. Alonso was so poor in that first half, I mean he was dire. If Emerson was as fit as he was against Watford, then even if Lampard wanted to take precautions, then he should have rested Emerson against Watford and played him against Ajax since Ajax is a more important match at the time. we shouldnt be confused by Alonso's occasionally goals from free kicks, and forget that his role is that of a left back. Who is a left back? A left back is a DEFENDER, (emphasis mine). If he is not able to defend for us, then let another person replace him. I dont know what that Ajax game would have ended with, maybe 6:2, if not for those two red cards that Ajax collected. The other area, I mean midfield, you read my analysis about Mourinho, how we need a stronger protection for our back four. Some people are just thinking of us scoring goals, they are not thinking that if we are conceding goals, all the efforts of our attacking players to get the goals will be in futility because we keep conceding goals. Against Ajax, if we had not conceded any goal in that match, we would have won the match by 4:0. If we defend better, we will win more matches. Thus, it is important for us to protect our back four. Thirdly, concerning Lampard, I am criticizing him because of Jorginho. Jorginho is the same Jorginho of last season under Sarri ball. Jorginho is a good player, a good deep lying playmaker. He's very effective against smaller teams but not against the bigger teams. Sarri ball was a great style of play, very entertaining, and beautiful. But, considering the nature of the Premier league, that style was a very audacious style because it was contrary to the traditional premier league midfield which normally has two defensively minded players covering the back four and an attacking player supporting the attackers. Throughout last season we were all concerned about that midfield because for the past fifteen years or so of the Abramovich era, I don't think Chelsea has played like that. I am only reinforcing our concerns from last season that Lampard should find a solution to it especially when we are playing against a strong opposition so that our back four doesn't get exposed.
  8. I cannot pardon Lampard for starting Alonso in our last match. why was he resting Emerson? with all the rest the guy had when he was injured, he came back and played against Watford, our defence looked so good in the game, then suddenly three days after against Ajax, Lampard didn't even put him in the entire squad. These things are showing me that Lampard is not a good coach. It is in big games that you know a top coach. During Mourinho's days, he will adjust his formation and team selection so that he can present a very good team to beat a top team. He will not use the same team he had been using to beat small teams against big team. you can use an average team to beat average teams in the premier league, but you must create and craft a very top team from your squad to beat the top teams in the champions league and in the premier league. I've not seen that from Lampard anytime we are playing the top teams this season, Liverpool, Man Utd (twice) and Leicester, have been poor matches for us because Lampard has had very poor big match management skills. And the problem is our midfield, and that is where Mourinho adjusts to win some of these matches. At best, Jorginho is a physically weak player, and that is the reason he shouldn't be playing in that position against top teams. That position is expected to protect the back four, but can Jorginho protect the back four when we are playing against very good attackers and midfielders who move the ball very fast, the answer is no. Reece James is bigger and stronger, he has played as a defensive midfielder before at Wigan, I was expecting that Lampard would develop that guy to play instead of Jorginho when we are playing against top teams. Against Ajax, we couldn't even get the ball at all in the midfield because nobody was strong enough to tackle Ajax players in the midfield and collect the ball. That was why Mourinho developed Mctominay at Man Utd, played Makalele at Chelsea, developed Mikel to replace Makalele at chelsea when Makalele left. He knows the importance of protecting the back four.

  10. A lot of people are blind. Why did Lampard start Alonso yesternight, was Emerson injured? Gross mistake from Lampard, we had already gone 3:1 down at half time just because of Alonso. Alonso is so poor.
  11. Positive news ahead of this one: 1) Emerson is back. There's usually a lot of balance in our back four with Emerson at leftback. At the weekend, our back four looked so very good and tidy. 2) The competition of James with Dave has really developed Dave, and Dave played his best Chelsea game since he joined us many seasons ago in the match against Ajax two weeks ago. It shows that competition is very good. James should keep up the work he is doing. He makes the team really balance when he is playing, Against Lille, he tackled a goal-bound move from Lille, he got a yellow card, that was his first game for Chelsea (apart from Carabao cup), and some ignorant chelsea fans thought collecting a yellow card means he is not good. does collecting a yellow card mean a player is not good? Some Chelsea fans now, think James is not good, meanwhile everybody at Chelsea knows how good the guy is, and Dave knows how good the guy is too, and it has pushed him to improve his game. 3) Pulisic is a good news for us. He was the difference again at the weekend between getting one point and getting the three points that we got from the game. He could be the difference again against Ajax tommorrow. 4) Willian is very important to the team. He made the difference against Lille, he can make the difference tommorrow. 5) Mason Mount is actually very good. Imagine the save that Foster made at the weekend, the one that hit the crossbar. I hope Mount has a great game tommorrow. He can score the winner for us tommorrow. I was so impressed to see him selected for the press conference today ahead of tommorrow's game. Great player.
  12. So many Man U fans dont want anybody to say they have a very top top player in Rashford. Everybody can see it yesternight with that free kick and again it shows he is an outrageous player. Man U are a very rich club, i think the richest club in the world, so, they have a very very GOOD squad. its just that they bought a SPECIFIC TYPE OF PLAYERS, and they are playing a SPECIFIC TYPE OF KILLER FOOTBALL that they want to play. People need to start respecting them. they only had a little problem with injuries this season, they have a very good team. Their level is simply too high for Chelsea at the moment. thats why they've beating us twice this season.
  13. My player ratings for tonight. Kepa: 7/10. Dealt with all the threats that Ajax brought. He was confident. Aspi: 8/10. Maybe tonight's game is the best game I've seen Aspi play for us since he came to Chelsea. When he played CB under Conte, I always said that's not the position we bought Aspi to come and play for us. I wanted to see him at right back playing well. Tonight he played so well. He could well be given man of the match tonight. Tomori: 7/10. After the small mistake in the first half, he was terrific. He was calm and he dealt with all of Ajax attacks very well. Zouma: 8/10. You may say I'm too generous by giving him an 8. But, he didn't make any mistake tonight, he only lost the ball once when he was trying to drive forward, otherwise, he didn't put a foot wrong tonight. He never allowed Ajax to beat him and that's why we kept a clean sheet tonight. Alonso: 7/10. I think we need to accept Alonso the way he is. He's a very intelligent player even if he's not the strongest player in the world, he has a very intelligent knowledge of the game. Jorginho: 7/10. Jorginho and kovacic tonight were geniuses. In tight positions, they showed their geniuses. They were pleasure to watch. They brought the ball out of tough and tight places and fed the attackers brilliantly. Kovacic: 7/10. Kovacic is no doubt a top player. Tonight again, he showed it. Mount: 7/10. As long as he is on the pitch, our opponents are always afraid. He's a very good goalscorer. He posed some threats to Ajax today. Hudson-Odoi: 5/10. One of his worst games since his introduction to the first team last season. Although, he faced a tough opposition today, he still should have done better. Willian: 5/10. He didn't get much of the ball today. He faced a top team. Abraham: 6/10. He didn't get much of the ball. Ajax played a very good game when he was on the pitch. Pulisic: 7/10. Had an assist when he came on. Great player. Batsuayi: 7/10. Scored the winner. Was an hand full to Ajax's defense when he came on.
  14. I need to praise most of the Chelsea players tonight. Again, I think Abramovich is a very good football owner. He demands a lot from the team, he developed the academy to produce very good players, he purchases many young talented players and sends them out on loan. This is not an high school team, it is truly a professional team and you see that in their performance on the pitch.
  15. That was yes. The ref was influenced by their crowd. However it is very hard to pick that. Again, what is the work of VAR. is it only when the referee thinks a decision is not clear and wants the VAR to help him that the VAR can do something? In this case, after the replay, we all saw it was an handball, the referee did not see it when it happened, but the replay showed it. That is why the VAR was introduced. To spot crucial moments of the game that the referee cannot see. In this case, the VAR should have called the referee's attention to this handball, and a penalty should have been given.
