  1. Is this the best Chelsea team ever?

    2004-2005. Correct. I was sad we didn't see great replacements for Robben and Duff for years to play with Drogba. Drogba carried our attacking line much more than he should have been required after those two left the club (while Lampard scored way more than a CM should). The biggest difference at the present moment compared to years since Makelele left is that we now have Kante. Kante is the genuine top CM that we lacked with an inadequate Mikel while only briefly having a healthy Essien and one M. Ballack for a few seasons. Right now, we need more at WB, more scorers up top, and more in CM. Not the best team ever.
  2. Stoke 1-2 Chelsea

    maybe an "agricultural" team would a fitting characterization.
  3. 19. Diego Costa

    Nah, Drogba was irreplaceable. Costa is NOT that special.
  4. 19. Diego Costa

    I can barely watch the remainder of this season because of Diego and even though I feel like we can win the title, there's been no doubt in my mind since the match against Tottenham last fall (when the pundits on TV were calling Diego the better striker compared to Harry), one particular striker has shown why he's the best striker in the league and the other has fallen into old patterns and scored much less (putting December aside in Diego's case). Tottenham have the better scorers in Kane and Alli, so we know there's a possibility that this title challenge could fall apart for us down the stretch. However, I think Diego would change his behavior for a few matches if the gap between 1st and 2nd narrows. I can -almost- trust Diego for that.
  5. General Transfer Talk

    New striker target: Patrik Schik.
  6. Alexis Sanchez

    Sanchez might still have something to offer at his age because of his goalscoring, but I wouldn't give him a contract for more than a couple years. I'm surprised no one mentioned that Alexis was probably having a laugh at something Arturo Vidal was doing after he scored. Oxlade-Chamberlain is a player who can do just about anything you ask of him --and do it well for 90 minutes. Would be disappointing seeing him go to ManUtd.
  7. Kalidou Koulibaly

    Harry Maguire.
  8. 19. Diego Costa

    Crap in the air, rolling around for 30 seconds, whinging over referees/defenders, subsequently offside, crap outside the box with back to defenders, can't dribble for shit/PL defenders have him figured out while he's on the ball --and in reality, Diego's not all that strong. This player looks at best a future super-sub and I'm not about to call Diego a fox in the box. He's reached his ceiling and we can say that he's been a good goalscorer in 2014 and in 2016, but our club need more in the CF position as we go into the next couple years with Conte. The first half of this season, I could easily overlook all of Diego's shortcomings; he was superb for us and he finally began to earn my respect and admiration. Now, I don't feel he's the player for us going into the future, when every single year he can do this shit (total crap except for a few goals scored, in 2017). Apparently it's not easy to find the striker with skill, fire, physical strength and speed all in one package, but I think we can find one who becomes better than Diego within a few seasons. We need to find the next one.
  9. West Ham 1-2 Chelsea

    11 matches remain the PL season and it's really down to our 10 points and our defending versus Harry Kane-Alli and -MAYBE- Pep's ManCity. I'm going with us, but this Costa character is not promising. Maybe the gap needs to be narrowed to motivate him(?).
  10. West Ham 1-2 Chelsea

    We would have much more to offer going forward with better CF and better LWB right now. There are other concerns, but those are two of the biggest ATM.
  11. West Ham 1-2 Chelsea

    because of the damn close-up shots on our coverage of the game (really annoying), I couldn't see how that ball was played back to Fabregas and picked off by Carroll. Anyone have a good replay that shows the full footage of what happened?
  12. West Ham 1-2 Chelsea

    Costa, you are still the moaning bitch you were two years ago and now just breaking down our build-up play consistently. If Conte can't make this player consistently better, Diego might as well just fuck right off for money elsewhere. Looks like we'll definitely be defending our way to that PL title this season; not esp. good on build-up play or transition with this guy as CF unless Fab or someone else gifts him a ball to strike.
  13. West Ham 1-2 Chelsea

    Diego Rolling-on-the-floor-bitching Costa. We need another striker who can score.
  14. General Transfer Talk

    I get the feeling that Chelsea will buy two specific players this summer window if the right people can be bought: a left-sided CM -and- a better playmaking LWB with speed. It seems that most of our CMs prefer being on the right, except Matic and maybe Fabregas, who, it would seem doesn't care either way. So, we need more pace in both the LWB and the LCM --badly, going into another season with more competitions on the horizon (CL, PL, etc.) Otherwise, we need another goalscorer up top pretty badly and if Diego goes somewhere, then it's TWO we need up top. Don't know about CB as we're surely going to use Christensen because it's clear that he's ready and we need to not piss around with him and his potential. IMO, we will be looking for a CB in addition to Christensen returning because we need more height and power instead of Dave playing CB all the time. Hard to say what will happen with Zouma, but Christensen is a better choice for a starter IMHO. So, to summarize: 1 LWB, 1 LCM (both with more pace and playmaking ability), 1, maybe 2 attackers up top, and one CB in addition to Christensen returning. That's 4 or 5 players, depending upon Diego, but 4 definitely. Is this a concensus here, or do we have disagreements? **edit: additionally, it looks to me that RLC is a loan candidate for next season and I don't imagine Ake gets a top spot among next season's CB cadre. Chalobah likely to remain a decent backup to Kante, right side CM. No clue on Musonda and Kenedy.
  15. Chelsea 3-1 Swansea

    How pleasing to see our CMs do such a superb job. One of the better performances since the Lampard-Makelele times. Lampard was present for the match; I wonder if Makelele (and Ballack) were there too.
