  1. 14. Tiemoue Bakayoko

    In all seriousness he's out of form and he's detrimental to the team's performance. We can't keep playing him and expect him to get better.
  2. 14. Tiemoue Bakayoko

    He should play away from matches.
  3. 8. Ross Barkley

    That's a bit unfair, but I think the people down south in America also suffer from the same sort of stereotype.
  4. 9. Álvaro Morata

    Maybe because he never got into good positions often enough to miss three sitters in a game
  5. 9. Álvaro Morata

    If Hazard was taller that would be the ideal solution... Michy seems the better finisher with his feet but ultimately inferior with his overall hold up and link up play.. not sure playing alongside Morata will guarantee goals.. I'd rather put Pedro up front, dude can score from anywhere...
  6. 9. Álvaro Morata

    He's Drogba with his head, but Torres (Chelsea version) with his feet... He does make good chances for himself with his runs and strength but squanders them inevitably..
  7. 21. Davide Zappacosta

    In recent times, none of our RBs can put a decent ball into the box.. Paulo Ferreira comes to mind as the last RB that can cross a decent ball consistently. Ivanovic in his latter years was bad when defending against pacey wingers but going forward he always was an outlet and contributed goals/assists. Seems like even Bosingwa would be an improvement over this chap, ffs I hope I'm proven wrong.
  8. 9. Álvaro Morata

    He had a good game. As for the missed chance, that's down more to great goalkeeping I think. Oblak rushed out quickly and made himself as big as possible, so credit where credit's due.
  9. 9. Álvaro Morata

    What a flick that was. Take a bow, son.
  10. 27. Andreas Christensen

    Solid, does his job quietly but he does he personify calmness. But there was the last few minutes where Fellaini wrecked havoc by being a nuisance in the box. Overall, I think he and Azpi were superb in making Lukaku look every bit the flat track bully that he is. Kept Lukaku in their pockets and also nullified the threat of Rashford (who was United's most dangerous player) really well. He's got to start the next game on the basis of this performance.
  11. Chelsea 1-0 Man Utd

    Love your optimism.
  12. 9. Álvaro Morata

    Last time we played with two out and out strikers regularly was when we had Eidur and JFH. I'm not counting Zola as he operated more like Hazard as a second striker in his latter years. Even Anelka was shoe horned out wide to accomodate "Kalouda" and Drogs. From the top of my head, Anelka/Torres, Drogs/Sheva and Drogs/Crespo were onces that were tried out. I'm not sure why we haven't given it go from the start. Can we be even more vulnerable in defense/midfield playing while playing two up top? After yesterday's horror show, I sincerely doubt it. It couldn't be any more worse.
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. 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."
