  1. General Transfer Talk

    One question: who is buying James Maddison? Or, will he remain at Leicester? I am sure, while staying healthy, he will be a better player than Pulisic, but I guess he won't sell shirts in N. America. I hope Chelsea are after fullbacks, one winger and one striker if the transfer ban is delayed this summer. Kind of the same situation as last summer except that we instead got a better goalkeeper and a decent CM who was played in the wrong way by Sarri.
  2. David Neres

    Absolutely not. He's already 22 and showed himself repeatedly as the worst of Ajax's starters IMO. Does NOT know what to with the ball in and around the box and I bet that does not change. Would be another Willian: good dribbler, retains ball, produces nothing great with possession against strong sides but MIGHT against weaker opponents. Waste of money and time.
  3. Sarri But Not Sarri Thread

    meh, they were just ineffective up top and Shaw made mistakes. Fred and McTominey both played well along with Young. United's forward line has been questionable or ineffective for a while --esp. centre forward. Barca has decent enough cohesion and experience to prevent disasters at the back --even though they really could have blown it a few times in that match. Pogba, Dalot, and Lukaku weren't good enough to make United dangerous yesterday. Rashford is inconsistent.
  4. Sarri But Not Sarri Thread

    I really don't know what to think about the prospect of keeping Sarri. The squad isn't great, esp. up top and in fullback, but Sarri has continuously compounded the squad's shortcomings with a shitty centre midfield setup this season. I can kind of excuse him for his willingness to stick with the original idea of Jorginho sitting deep, but also I ridicule the decision to do so because Jorginho is weak, a lesser passer than Fabregas was, not that quick, and redundant when he is incapable of creating forward momentum while we have two centre backs capable of passing AND dribbling from the roughly the same area where Jorginho resides. Sarri should have tried something else by now, esp. given that Jorginho is not a bad shooter either. I know Jorginho can shoot from his time before Napoli too. But, here we are again with a manager that refuses to be adventurous with the options the squad provided for him this season. Five matches to go and CHO has just ONE PL start??? Willian perpetually ineffective around the box unless it's a weak opponent. None of this makes sense from a tactical POV regardless of our shortcomings in CF. So, what's the decision then? Chelsea are a mess with some good young talent ready to take up the banner. Good future potential, but the squad needs more still. This manager COULD evolve, but I think he has demonstrated little nous this season for the PL. I'd like to see Marina and Maurizio gone if I am forced to make a decision right now. Stupid after stupid after stupid.
  5. European Competition thread

    With FOUR ENGLISH clubs in the CL quarterfinals, Roman's Chelsea has never felt so damn mediocre as this moment.
  6. Chelsea banned for TWO transfer windows

    despite lacking some quality in fullback, centre back, wing, striker etc., this ban could be a blessing. Sarri ain't going to cut it and Jorginho was a waste of transfer money from the moment he became the hub of our lineup. The former man behind Sevilla's scouting mastery might be Chelsea's chance to catch up to Manchester's clubs ITF. Wake me up in 18 months.
  7. Man City 6-0 Chelsea

    It will require changes in the offices and probably in ownership.
  8. Man City 6-0 Chelsea

    I turned the match off pretty quickly and went to sleep, but, I expect this stuff. I draw a direct line from the moment AVB spoke something that resembled the truth years ago. Chelsea don't have an identity, not a leadership group in the offices with vision. These facts were previously made unclear by the talent and leadership we had on the pitch. I have a vision though: CFC are headed for full-fledged mediocrity as long as Abramovich and the Chelsea offices remain as they are. Furthermore, Pep's entrance into the Prem has made things a little bit more clear. Chelsea won recent titles because other clubs were weak. Not so anymore.
  9. Chelsea 5-0 Huddersfield

    except that this one can stand up to pretty much any centre-back unlike Diego. yeah, this looks like the post-Drogba striker I've been waiting for.
  10. Chelsea 5-0 Huddersfield

    how many attacks died with willian. pathetic. where is CHO? team looks ready to play today but Willian is going to blow it.
  11. 22. Willian

    More and more, Chelsea look destined to become a mid-table club at best. Unless some of the magic of the past two decades inspires a buyer to take it from Roman, I imagine CFC could become a real mediocre club; not just a club with money that once aspired to be "big."
  12. 22. Willian

    Don't matter; we're not getting relegated and we're also not finishing top four.
  13. 22. Willian

    Is this little shit finally leaving? wow, good day if so.
  14. Bournemouth 4-0 Chelsea

    Multiple things are wrong. Lack of quality in the squad, lack of character, a manager that starts Willian repeatedly despite his obvious mental shortcomings and apparently the relationship between this manager and a sizable portion of the squad. Where to begin? Seems to me, also, that Jorginho is either just a waste of player in the formation and tactics, or the team doesn’t know what to do with the formation. Personally, I think Jorginho is redundant with two CBs capable of passing and dribbling while Jorginho can’t defend for shit himself. Sarri just doesn’t seem to know what to do with this situation and arguably M. Granovskaia plus players already here for seasons deserve blame too. Once again, we are at another inflection point where we can clearly see that CFC have LACKED VISION IN THEIR LEADERSHIP/MANAGEMENT for one full decade.
  15. 5. Jorginho

    It's not that Brits "don't get Jorginho;" that's complete wrong. That's just like the stupid argument that "fans/Brits don't get Mikel." FFS, every intelligent footy fan can see the value of a player like Makelele, or Xabi Alonso/Mascherano, etc. I would say that Mikel was never top quality and Jorginho is dubious at this point because we do not know how good players within the squad can be due to our forward line problems and Sarri's inability to change things up. Chelsea have a player that cannot defend for shit while also having a completely impotent attack and two CBs who CAN pass forward and dribble --also while having two fullbacks that are only somewhat good, but can't do much given the problems with the forward line and poor interplay from MF to FW line.
