  1. 47. Billy Gilmour

    To be fair to the boy, everton gave him so much time and space. Liverpool was the truly great showing. Billy showed he was capable defensively but the whole team was sitting deep and when Liverpool lost the ball he had options to pass a vertical ball (even in his poor performances we can see he's a good passer of the ball forward). I've got a sneaky suspicion he is suited in a pivot as opposed to an anchor. Sent from my SM-G973F using Tapatalk

    I don't buy the source. But you can look for houses online lol Sent from my SM-G973F using Tapatalk

    RAJKOVIC. YES Sent from my SM-G973F using Tapatalk
  4. Kai Havertz

    Its fine if he plays striker/false 9. Not if he's coming to play a box to box cm in a 3. Not in the PL. Work rate is one of the easiest things to change though Sent from my SM-G973F using Tapatalk
  5. Kai Havertz

    Havertz certainly looks lazy off the ball to me. The similarity to ozil I don't want. False 9 would work great and probably Werner too. If not I wouldn't get him. Sent from my SM-G973F using Tapatalk
  6. Sheffield United v Chelsea

    Good thing is we're now basically in a race with Leicester who have 3 big games they will drop points. If we can beat Sheffield and Norwich ill confident we'll have around a 3 point gap between us and them Sent from my SM-G973F using Tapatalk
  7. 15. Kurt Zouma

    He's always shit vs united as is christensen. If we were just going on individual strengths I would play rudiger and tomori against united in the cup to cope with their speed. Of course that's in the abstract. Given tomori's lack of game time he shouldn't be an option for that game. So I'd go with zouma and rudiger for the cup final. May as well play then together from here on out to continue to build understanding. Sent from my SM-G973F using Tapatalk
  8. 5. Jorginho

    Or Kante Kova Ziyech Havertz Pulsic Werner Tbh, adding mount to those 6 we have 7 players that versatile enough to play multiple positions in a match. The real difficulty will be getting defensive balance even as those front 4 move around. This might sound ridiculous but adding rice as a dm helps even more, because we can switch between 2 cbs to 3 in game. We can basically position ourselves as a 343 when we have the ball Deep in the oppositions half. Rudiger Zouma Rice Kova James Ziyech alonso Havertz pulisic Werner Hear me out, I know it looks weird, but when the fullbacks push up to give width Rice as a dm drops back to make a 3 cb with Kova sitting just in front like Matic would do in Conte's first season. Ziyech would be higher up but more central like the areas Kante would take to pressure anyone that was attempting to start a break. Havertz and pulisic hover around the box with the fullbacks as options on the sidelines. **obviously this is only the type of structure we would have when we have possession when the opponents are camped on the edge of their box. It keeps the centre of the pitch packed so that any counters have to go wide, lessening the danger** When we defend without the ball we could play a 4141 James Rudiger zouma alonso Rice Ziyech havertz Kovacic Pulisic Werner goal hanging lol [emoji38] I think Frank is trying to get Kante to take those types of positions. Its definitely what he did against City and Aston Villa. I'd imagine the point is to able to use everything from 433, 343, 4141 depending on the circumstances. Bayern and Liverpool are so good at that, but they are well coached and the players are intelligent enough to know where they should be and when. Its going to take some intense coaching for our squad to have that kind of game management. On second thoughts this whole post is bollox. Sent from my SM-G973F using Tapatalk

    Ziyech Kante Mount/Kova Pulisic Havertz Werner If its a proper pivot Kante and kova pick themselves Sent from my SM-G973F using Tapatalk
  10. Kai Havertz

    But sancho hasn't even been sold yet so how could Bayer use Jadon as a benchmark to value Havertz? Sent from my SM-G973F using Tapatalk

    70m is not peanuts though Sent from my SM-G973F using Tapatalk
  12. 5. Jorginho

    Let's be honest here, there's no reason to choose Gilmour over jorginho at the moment. Sent from my SM-G973F using Tapatalk
  13. 24. Reece James

    Other way round now. That was the only game that he's been good defensively. He's consistently bad Sent from my SM-G973F using Tapatalk
  14. Crystal Palace - Chelsea

    If jorginho plays zouma rudiger works. I've been saying since we beat Liverpool in the cup to choose those two and stick with them Sent from my SM-G973F using Tapatalk

    Reece James is as bad as alonso defensively Sent from my SM-G973F using Tapatalk
