  1. Andy Carroll

    Interesting possibility. If it weren't for some personality problems and an abundance of injuries, Andy would be one of my favorite players in all of football, I think. Will Chelsea ever find a striker as good as Drogba again?
  2. 14. Tiemoue Bakayoko

    I think we need another CM signing ASAP along with the Barkley signing. Bakayoko isn't Chelsea material; offload.
  3. The Conte Thread

    I've barely been watching matches this season. If Chelsea swap managers and fail to improve the squad with top players, what the hell is the point of watching next season? Hilarious. Hire a new CEO aimed at global marketing and keep rummaging the bargain bin. Who the fuck is going to watch this unfold and continue to have interest in CFC?
  4. 8. Ross Barkley

    Hopefully he matures under Conte and company. I'm not a fan of Barkley, but I wish him and CFC well with this transfer. Definitely a player with a lot of potential and plenty of strength and skill on the ball. Someone who can improve interplay with Eden Hazard from CM. 15 million? Great buy. Need a left back and a new RB. Guess that new attacker will wait until summertime.
  5. Arsenal 2-2 Chelsea

    Chelsea won't play any better under another manager. Today was about as good as it gets with the current squad. Simply lacking quality in the squad and depth. Perfect example of why I don't bother watching matches much anymore. Wait until Chelsea buy or work in players that will make them dangerous in the Prem and in Europe. Might be worth seeing again. Don't know about Morata right now. Liverpool need one star striker added to their squad and I think they will be good enough next year to compete for the trophy assuming the VvD maintains excellent play and leadership at the back. Chelsea, by contrast, sit higher in the table but the squad needs a lot more before next season begins.
  6. Ruben Loftus-Cheek

    Milivojević buy?
  7. The Board

    What a season this is so far. That January window... what will it bring? Looks like ManCity need nothing at the moment.
  8. The Board

    JT was great; no question there. However, the other centre back with him hasn't been top European quality for a long while and our fullbacks/wingbacks are nowhere near what they should be. Centre midfield: year after year, I think this is also a weakness at Chelsea and only recently it's been covered up by the fact that we acquired Kante in summer 2016. There was a big drop off after Makelele and although we wouldn't have been expected to find another Claude Makelele, our CM was still relatively WEAK on complete footballing ability (see Barca, Madrid, Juve, Bayern, and others in England, etc. since 2007), I think we should have had better all-round centre midfielders during every season since Claude left (along with DEPTH). So, YES, what Campos stated is true of Chelsea for most of the last 10 years. While Man Utd have struggled to make the next generation of fullbacks and centre midfielders work for them, they've spent far too much on attacking midfielders without backing them up with quality from behind. It's clear that Pep has had a different set of priorities. I would argue that our own Antonio would mostly build from the back too, but Chelsea haven't acquired enough since his arrival.
  9. West Brom 0-4 Chelsea

    I think Chelsea will be averaging 1.3 goals per PL match played soon.
  10. The Board

    I love this text from an interview with Campos back in March/April because it's so relevant in the case of Chelsea (although we also currently lack excellent forwards to play with Eden and Alvaro):
  11. Ruben Loftus-Cheek

    My view is that he's never been given enough playtime, nor in the right position to gradually gain confidence and make an impact at 1st team level for Chelsea. It's often the same with young Chelsea players, but Ruben hasn't been put into the mix in the right way yet, nor consistently played to adapt in centre midfield.
  12. Ruben Loftus-Cheek

    I think Ruben should be playing in a 4-3-3 where the CMs alternate getting forward. He would be a perfect player to have combining with Eden on the left CM area regularly, but FFS we need a good LB. Even with Ruben potentially returning to Chelsea, I still say CFC need a couple of better centre midfielders from the market to supplement Kante. So, to summarize that point of view: our future midfield consists of Kante, RLC and....... WHO for quality starters? I'm fine with Danny D. because he knows Kante, but Cesc and Tiemoue? Right now, I am not even going to count Cesc and Tiemoue as legit starters for the future unless Bakayoko show us more once we have a more complete squad. As much a Tiemoue is underwhelming right now, I don't want to judge players harshly when our side has clear deficiencies around our formation. Fucking stupid how Chelsea limp through seasons with mediocre players as starters and bench players year after year and we try to make premature judgments about young players stepping into our side without quality support around them.
  13. Ruben Loftus-Cheek

    I think Cesc is done after this season. Even if he stays, he will normally just be a sub. Chelsea cannot go another two windows without putting more into their centre mid and wingback positions. Won't be a need for Cesc's slow legs as a starter if CFC make the right moves.

    ESPN have a good show about football, but not much otherwise. Guess they couldn't grab the rights for La Liga, Serie A, etc. because they have all that college throwball coverage. The situation at Chelsea needs to change. Emanalo wasn't good enough. What the hell is Marina going to do before next month or January? I would have interrupted Gab to ask: "Who is the dumbass of Chelsea Football Club that allowed de Bruyne to leave without a buyback clause???"
  15. I like the idea of a 4-3-1-2 formation with two strikers.
