  1. Liverpool v Chelsea

    Rotate heavily and play one of Odoi, Ampadu or both. This game is meaningless compared to the next one. Can't have a tired team play them at the bridge, even when all fit they're a terrible matchup for us.
  2. West Ham - Chelsea

    Not only we dropped points because we didn't rotate enough in Europa League. We also lost Pedro and Rudiger. Sarri really needs to prioritize the PL, at least until 1/4.
  3. The English Football Thread

    Yup, and I believe this is a sign of english clubs coming back in full strength in UCL. Liverpool reaching last year's final was also a strong indicator. First english finalist since Chelsea 2012. The spanish giants are in the decline and will very likely face a rebuild of squads. Unfortunately, I don't think our team is good enough to make an impact if we were to qualify not yet anyway. Still too many flaws. but Liverpool and City are strong candidates.
  4. West Ham - Chelsea

    This should be an easy match for us on paper, but after the lack of rotation in greece and the short time in preparation things could get ugly. This would be the worst time to drop points with the liverpool games coming next.
  5. The English Football Thread

    It must be said, City have really raised the level of the premier league. Top clubs have to win every game and dropping points against small sides is a big deal now. Gap also getting bigger between top 6 and the rest of teams.
  6. PAOK 0-1 Chelsea

    This half only reinforced my thoughts that we didn't need to play most of our starters. Ampadu and Odoi would have done the job just fine. They're about the same level as the teams we usually play during the first rounds of cup games.
  7. PAOK 0-1 Chelsea

    Arsenal played their squad players and youngsters in this competition and cruised their way into 1/2 finals. Besides, it's not like Ampadu or Odoi are small time prospects. Very disapointed.
  8. Thibaut Courtois

    He's gonna love it when his own fans will be booing him at the slightest mistake, or when the stadium is too quiet because there are too many tourists.
  9. 29. Álvaro Morata

    He's a player that feeds a lot on confidence. I wouldn't be surprised if he scored next game. The downside is that when he's low on it, it gets to his head. It's odd to say because he's 25 but he lacks the experience to handle the bad patches. Prior to last season, he never started regularly at pro level so he never had to go through that. Personally, I haven't given up on him. He's way too talented not to be given a chance.
  10. Diego Costa

    He's a top striker we always knew that. although I felt the Ramos-Varane duo was very rusty yesterday.
  11. Nabil Fekir

    That guy is a fraud. He's not a journalist. He doesn't have any infos whatsoever. All he does is copy other reports mainly from french outlets and not necessarily from the reliable sources. Don't pay attention to him.
  12. Nabil Fekir

    Only Mohamed Bouhafsi is reliable. The others not so much.
  13. Nabil Fekir

    In the hypothesis that we sign him, where would he actually play? His best position in this team would be the most advanced of our midfielders, where Barkley was being played in pre-season but I thought that's where Kovacic was meant to be played. Very difficult to see him play at the wings because he doesn't have the pace to take on players on a regular basis.
  14. Mateo Kovacic

    If there really was an option to buy, I think there would be mentions of the fee. Also the fact that Madrid offered us the player themselves and we're probably beating other clubs to this signing suggest this is only a loan.
  15. Mateo Kovacic

    As much as I like the player, I feel this deal makes us look like a small club. Which big club loans a player and doesn't include any option to buy. Even if we benefit from having the player for a year. If his career is rejuvenated and he plays at an excellent level, all we would be doing is develop him for Real Madrid who takes him back next summer and could still come back for our best player. The real winner here is them I fear.
