  1. 24. Gary Cahill

    Him and Alonso were dreadful, too easily exposed by their wingback. For the 2nd goal, I'm not sure what he was thinking. Goes out of position to follow the player, leaves his area open and ends up stumbling. Classic.
  2. 9. Álvaro Morata

    Feels like back to square one since he came back from injury. During the Stoke and Atleti games he showed great strength and power in holding the ball up and linking up, looks like after the injury he'll need to find his feet again.
  3. The English Football Thread

    Well done Huddersfield. Hopefully that will shut Jose's gob for at least a week, although I wouldn't count on it. As a wise man once said, "defending properly is not a crime."
  4. Tammy Abraham

    Reading between the lines, it seems Clement is indicating if we want him back, Tammy won't get to play as many games as he would like. Sounds like the old Madness song, "Now pass the blame and don't blame me". Either way, looks like recalling him isn't a good idea. Can we get Drogs to come back for a short stint again?
  5. The Conte Thread

    Why replace someone who scored two and is a threat to the opposition with someone who has been shit for the last month or so.
  6. 22. Willian

    What the eff happened to him? He was somewhat okay in the opening game against Burnley. It was only after the transfer window closed he started turning up shit performances week after week. Did Jose get a hold of him during the transfer window and told him to play like utter @!# so he could to United for cheap?
  7. 3. Marcos Alonso

    Baba to the rescue?
  8. 23. Michy Batshuayi

    I know what you mean, but I'm not sure we should buy somebody else as It'll hurt Tammy's chances further next season. It's either now or never and it's up to Conte and Tammy. But for heaven's sake, just give him a chance. He might end up like Chalobah or Ake if he knows there's going to be another striker in our books and him going further down the pecking order. Bats is a decent striker (I personally think he's better if he plays alongside another striker) but up front on his own? The way he was taken out of the game was eerily similar to the Burnley game on opening day. If only we played Qarabag and Forest every week.
  9. The Conte Thread

    He needs to stop starting the usual suspects who are a liability to the team with their poor form. Willian keeps on getting selected despite clearly playing utter tosh football is not a good message for the bench players who deserve an opportunity. (exhibit A - Musonda's rant) Rudiger and Andreas playing great when given the opportunity and then Captain Cahill comes back and gets exposed as usual.
  10. 23. Michy Batshuayi

    Needs to realize he's better off as a super sub against top flight teams. Sure he can bag goals against minnows but seems to lack the basic elements of being a striker. Hold up play is poor, doesn't press or be a nuisance to opposition defenders..it's really easy to take him out of the game. Should recall Abraham in Jan, we just can't cut it with him backing up Morata.
  11. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain

    Stupid move indeed, but he never struck me as being a bright footballer. Remember the gaffe last season where he "accidently" liked an ArsenalFanTV video that called for Wenger to be sacked?
  12. 4. Cesc Fàbregas

    Conte probably read your post.
  13. 27. Andreas Christensen

    Interesting you brought up the Nordic connection, Eidur was also known as the "Iceman" here. But it wasn't only just because he was from Iceland.
  14. 27. Andreas Christensen

    I'm pretty sure his blood pressure rate is a flat line during matches. So calm and collected even under pressure. The exact opposite of Cahill.
  15. 3. Marcos Alonso

    Conte had to sub him off. If the Burnley debacle didn't happen I'm sure he would be kept on. But we've seen how ref can get influenced by crowds and start giving a spree of cards. On top of that, our players need more sense and keep a calm head. If Conte didn't sub him off, any 50-50 challenge which he lost, no doubt Dean would've sent him off. He needs to learn from Kante on how to deal with being carded.
