  1. 10. Eden Hazard

    The best thing about his interview is him acknowledging the bad circumstances in which Courtois left and not wanting a repeat of it. Other than that, nothing new. He still doesn't know wether he wants to stay or leave and is being honest about it so that there will be no surprises.
  2. 20. Callum Hudson-Odoi

    We need to stop fooling ourselves. He's not a manager who likes to promote youth, same thing happened at Napoli. The worst thing about the situation is that our current set of wingers is an issue. Willian and Pedro are old, Eden's contract is almost at an end and Moses clearly has no future at the club. We're lucky enough to have have produced a talent like him at the best time possible, but will somehow mess this up.
  3. 20. Callum Hudson-Odoi

    Jadon Sancho and Mason Mount are called to play with the senior team of england, while Hudson-Odoi can't get on the bench vs Videoton. If I were him I'd seriously consider leaving. He's talented enough to start for most teams in the EPL.
  4. Chelsea 1-0 Videoton

    Slowly losing patience with Sarri regarding mid-week rotation and youth introduction. He just doesn't have it in him. This will cost us points in the EPL and possibly some very talented kids. I hope he proves me wrong but it seems very unlikely.
  5. 10. Eden Hazard

    I think the World Cup gave him a lot of confidence. Proved himself as one of the best players in the world at the biggest stage. He's really a different player now. I think he used to feel inferior or lacked total confidence in his ability because of his past failures at UCL and WC. He probably didn't consider himself to be up there with the very very best until now.
  6. Chelsea 1-1 Liverpool

    Probably an unpopular oppinion but I think we need Morata in this type of game more than Giroud. He's too slow and lacks mobility which makes our press inefficient. If Hazard didn't suddenly decide to press in this game it would have been close to non-existent. I'm guessing he will come in at the 65+ min.
  7. Chelsea 1-1 Liverpool

    What worries me the most is Pedro's absence. So far this season, the substitution of a fresh winger coming in (Pedro,Willian,Hazard) proved to be very successful. I fear the lack of a quality attacking player coming on from the bench might be an issue if we're trying to change the course of the game. For that reason alone, I wish Hudson-Odoi was on the list.
  8. 17. Mateo Kovacic

    Surprised no one posted here yet. I think this was his best performance in a Chelsea shirt so far. He's slowly building confidence and you can see it in his game. Just need him to work on fitness and play a full 90 min.
  9. 10. Eden Hazard

    On current form, he's the best player in the world. Been outstanding since the start of the season, the WHU game the only exception.
  10. Liverpool 1-2 Chelsea

    I thought Caballero had a really good game. Saved us plenty of times and his ball playing ability helped us build from the back especially in the first half.
  11. Liverpool 1-2 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.
  12. West Ham 0-0 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.
  13. 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.
  14. West Ham 0-0 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.
  15. 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.
