  1. Chelsea - Everton

    Squad needs more talent; don't start on the manager already FFS.
  2. Chelsea - Everton

    Nice play by Gana and Gomes. Stuffed us. Good defending by Everton today. Can't really fault Morata much in this one( yea, he had chances and offside calls); I thought this match highlighted our deficiencies in MF and fullbacks. We just don't have enough to punch through like an elite side.
  3. Sarri But Not Sarri Thread

    Off topic, but just going to share my current thoughts: Kante has been a good player to hold our side together while we have been severely lacking in other areas. If he wants to move on and we're going to use the money to sign more attackers and fullbacks, CBs, etc., etc., then so be it. What has been bizarre to me personally, as an American who doesn't have 4 decades of watching European football in my past, is how there haven't been more Didier Drogbas at the top level of European football. There are players I like (Hazard, Kante and others), but I would like Chelsea to find an indomitable CF again someday.
  4. 29. Álvaro Morata

    Hazard-Morata-Pedro/Willian just isn't enough. More disappointment awaits if that front line does not change in January and summer. I'm fine with Pedro staying as long as he wants; he won't be a first choice forward if Chelsea buy right, but he's a good backup.
  5. Chelsea 3-2 Derby County

    ...or push Barkley up and let Kante stay deep.
  6. Aaron Ramsey

    Vesper likes donkeywater in the morning. Did you have chocolate -AND- coffee for breakfast?
  7. Chelsea 3-2 Derby County

    Just put in another striker and cross more. Problem is, Sarri always starts Jorginho and gets 70% possession so what is a Kante supposed to do for 90 minutes???
  8. Sarri But Not Sarri Thread

    Chelsea should be very aggressive for attackers in the January window and grab defenders and maybe another attacker in the summer. Getting attackers in January should mean Eden has better reasons to stay. I think (hope?) Madrid will be in a transition phase for 2-3 seasons even though their captain and some other strong players remain there. Eden Hazard coming to Madrid will NOT re-ignite the drive for more trophies while Ramos is young enough. However, if Madrid were to buy the top striker before the summer window or early, I suppose there would be greater reason to think Madrid can re-shape themselves quickly. So, this is one big reason why Chelsea should be grabbing 1 or 2 high quality players as early as they can --before Madrid or anyone else can act.
  9. Sarri But Not Sarri Thread

    We're one or two players away (departing club) from being a completely mediocre side with a few excellent players that turn heads.
  10. Sarri But Not Sarri Thread

    The problem begins with getting Mourinho back, not getting someone like Klopp as manager and the decisions thereafter. Apparently we have another manager who does NOT rotate, nor does he play young players often enough. For anyone who thinks that there's nothing wrongheaded about this management preference for experienced players only, you should look to Barca, RM, and other clubs with big budgets who have seen their young players in the starting eleven regularly in past seasons. Nice start by Sarri, but I think we need to decide on how important top 3 is while acknowledging we won't win the league with our lack of scoring players. Sarri should be using more of our talented young players soon. I agree with you Mana. We need better goalscorers up top and some options at fullback and centre back that we lack. Not sure about how Sarri is setting up the centre midfield. We don't look at all like a side that wins the PL; remove Hazard from lineup and what do we have?
  11. Anthony Martial

    Isn't this guy another one who insists on only playing on the left wing? Don't know how that helps us.
  12. 22. Willian

    yeah, I don't know how to rate the players because I've spent so little time watching football in the past years plus this season. I just want us to get someone how is a deadeye shooter and Alario has that reputation even if he doesn't have Bailey's speed/strength. We simply don't have goals in our squad. Think we'll need some new fullbacks and another centre back soon enough, but the goals problem is probably the most paramount thing near-term. Is Belotti off the radar now?
  13. 22. Willian

    Seems to me that the Argentine striker for Leon's side in Germany is the better all-around finisher. I don't really know what Sarri thinks of a player like Gabbiadini, but he is supposed to have a GREAT left foot for shooting and I'm sure that he's not all that expensive.
  14. Southampton 0-3 Chelsea

    I just want to know whether Sarri is recognizing now that Willian can't do anything for him. I've yet to watch the full match, but good to see that Barkley scored. edit: update, I watched most of this match and Kepa is like our DeGea, but maybe he's stronger than DeGea in his first season and definitely more confident. Nice play from us once Willian was removed.
  15. Roman Abramovich

    Don't know what to think of Paul Allen as an owner, but American sports club/team owners aren't all bad; the problem would probably be his lack of football history even though he's invested in the Seattle Sounders. However, the right kind of relationship with a rich owner is always just around the corner regardless of who it is; he could fall in love with Chelsea for a while and help with the new stadium project. I think a new owner will mean continued investment in the club but also maybe a re-design of the new stadium(?). The big question is whether or not there is a shared vision for the future between owner(s) and the functioning organization even in the case of a dispassionate owner.
