  1. West Brom - Chelsea

    I think Chelsea will be averaging 1.3 goals per PL match played soon.
  2. 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):
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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???"
  7. I like the idea of a 4-3-1-2 formation with two strikers.
  8. The Board

    Interesting January window. Is Marina under MORE PRESSURE regardless of additional duties?
  9. The Board

    I doubt that it's one moment for anyone who did not like Emenalo. For me it's the general ineptitude at Chelsea that fails to build a strong squad 2 men deep across the formation with quality throughout year after year after year. Combine this with the fact that we had a well-rounded squad in 2005 and our relative strength at that moment put us on solid ground in England and across Europe then compare those early Abramovich years to what we've seen since and for me CFC haven't not risen to expectations since. Do I care if my disgust is misdirected because I don't know who is making the decisions at Chelsea? No. Why give a fuck? What I saw through the years was a number of years wherein Chelsea failed to surround Drogba with top talent after Robben and Duff departed and now we're seeing it again with Hazard. No one demonstrates vision and execution at a club that many of us (one decade ago) thought WOULD reflect Roman's supposed ambitions and the hope of fans around the globe. At what point did Chelsea became a consistent threat to the big clubs across Europe while being able (not every single match) to shift into total football gear domestically regardless of who is packing it in deep defensively? Emenalo did things for the club, but he wasn't the one to make the difference for the 1st team squad (on and off the pitch and throughout the squad). I'm tired of seeing squad shortcomings then bullshit about expectations and blaming managers. Someone at this club needs to take responsibility and execute a vision that gets reflected through quality on the pitch.
  10. The Board

    If true, more responsibility and blame for Granovskaia, so one step closer to her being gone.
  11. The Board

    Should we have a good reason to believe that this stuff is true? Admittedly, we signed some very good young talent while Emenalo was a work. What happened to it all without real vision at the club though? Maybe myself and others are entirely wrong about Emenalo and the problems at Chelsea are entirely due to others at the club --and the owner. Where does this story go from here? I hope Granovskaia is gone soon. What about the rest of the board? Certainly feels like Chelsea have been a club with no coherent vision for much longer than most Chelsea fans are willing to admit.
  12. The Board

    I swear this guy operated like a man playing Football Manager or a FIFA career mode difficulty setting we've not yet seen. Glad he's gone.
  13. The Board

    I'm not sure that CFC's lack of vision for the club will be remedied by changing out the DoF. If the new guy has Roman's ear at all times and communicates very well, then maybe there's a chance but WHO at the club would he communicate his vision to other than Roman? Who among the board really knows football?
  14. Chelsea 1-0 Man Utd

    I wish we could see another Inzaghi this generation.
  15. Chelsea 1-0 Man Utd

    We should just bomb out of the CL and buy a new LWB and FWD in January. Go for top 4 again, build in the summer.
