  1. Chelsea coach Frank Lampard handed Marcos Alonso a furious dressing down in front of his team-mates after the left-back tried to watch the second half of their game at West Brom on the team coach rather than with the rest of the substitutes. Multiple sources have told The Athletic that Lampard confronted Alonso following the 3-3 draw on Saturday evening having discovered he went to the bus on his own without permission after being taken off at half-time. Alonso was one of two players changed at the interval. Mateo Kovacic also paid the price for a disastrous 45 minutes from the visit
  2. Who did you place your pre order with? I manged to get one with Amazon and (touch wood) they've not told me I might not get it. Pre orders were such a mess though, it was basically a fluke I got one in the first place.
  3. Pep has had 5 years at City, bought new centre backs and full backs every season and spent about a billion pounds on those players but tell me more about what a terrible job Lampard is doing defensively when his defensive signings have *checks notes* 73 minutes of Premier League football to their name.
  4. Been our best player so far this season. Then you're only seeing what you want to see and no amount of discussion or analysis will convince you otherwise.
  5. Was important not to lose. After today you've got Mendy, Chilwell and Pulisic to come into the team and hopefully Ziyech isn't to far behind. Silva got another start under his belt and Havertz now looks match fit. We got away with one today but there's plenty of reason to feel optimistic that these sorts of games should be few and far between going forwards. The new signings were never going to be an overnight fix and that's proving the case, especially with fitness problems thrown in. It's still early days so I'm not going to read too much into performances just
  6. James let their player get the shot away in the area and let it go through his legs. He could/should have got tighter. Played two WBA players onside for the third from the corner as well. Keeps bombing too far forward too quick leaving the defensive over exposed to the counter.
  7. James is starting to look a defensive liability and needs to be dropped for Dave. He was at fault for two of the goals. Need Chilwell fit as soon as possible because Alonso isnt up to it. Mendy is going to walk into the starting XI. Anyone saying we don't need Declan Rice. The performance from the two holding player today tells you exactly why we're in the market for a dedicated defensive midfielder. People keep bemoaning Lampard picking Mount. He's our best player out there today and the other 10 starters could learn a thing or two from him.
  8. Lack of Chilwell and Zouma in the squad makes me think they might have a knock? Glad to see Tammy retain his place after his impressive midweek performance.
  9. PSG sniffing around apparently. Want a loan with an option to buy and Chelsea have allegedly said they're only interested in a permanent deal.
  10. Only way I can see us selling would be to finance buying Declan Rice.
  11. Sky Sports reporting Arsenal are interested in signing Jorginho. Not sure I'd want to sell him to a direct rival and if we did I would want at least £50m for him.
  12. He's better than Loftus-Cheek who I think might benefit from a year out on loan.
  13. Speaks good English so no problems with communication to the defence. Good signing this, even if he isn't the best in the league he's still likely to be a significant upgrade to Kepa and WIlly C. Gives us a chance to find an exit for Kepa when we'd have the option of buying a world class goalie next summer if needed.
  14. Probably the third best player on the pitch last night behind Abraham and Havertz. Not quite sure where the criticism of him has snuck in from but then I suppose it is to be expected when the number of goals scored is the main metric most players are judged on nowadays.
  15. Played well. Should still leave. Shown in his time at the club he's not good enough. Nice for him to go out on a high though.
  16. I'd start them both. Tammy through the middle, Werner on the left. Going to need Tammy's size to compete against the tank that is Ivanovic in WBA's defence.
  17. Emerson playing as a right sided, inverted winger. Apparently Frank learned a thing or two under his time playing for Ranieri. It's no Hasselbaink at right back, but it's close.
  18. Abraham's link up play has been first class tonight.
  19. Not certain yet that a club Covid test will negate the need for Mendy to self isolate but fingers crossed.
