    I'm sorry but this forum became unreadable with this Vespa girl literally spamming every thread... You really need to take it down a notch. No one wants to read these scouting reports of yours in each and every thread on the forum.
  2. Mohamed Salah

    Do you really have to ask? He is on a completely different level.
  3. The Conte Thread

  4. 33. Emerson Palmieri

    This is not called "throwing light" on something. Throwing light is giving a professional and coherent interpretation of a players' attributes based on your opinion after you actually watched him play football. And yes, a full season as a starter for Roma is quite enough to obtain an opinion about a player. Clearly you never saw him in action so I'll just say - sometimes silence is golden. I haven't seen him play but after some intelligence work around Roma forums, they seem to be upset to lose him for such low price and they also say he is a very good prospect. Some even say he has world class potential. The general trend is that he is a very hard worker with some Brazilian flair on the side. I believe he will come good, just like other notable low profile defenders we brought in the last decade. Good luck Emerson!
  5. 3. Marcos Alonso

    What are you even talking about? Alonso is a very good footballer, he was amazing for us last year and continues to provide the goods this term, even, if rightly so, he is a little bit burned out. The man is working his socks off every single game for the last year and can't even get the sheer acknowledgment for that from our fans. I have no idea what are your expactations from a left wing back but all in all I can assure you there are not many better than this guy. I am really not sure if your beloved Alex Sandro is better than him this season. Anyway, you don't need a world class player in every position and I think our LWB position is the least of our problems. Alonso needs rest and needs competition, but he is a good player and gets no recognition for his great service at this club, and really I'm quite tired of seeing people bashing him after every game (like really, what wrong did he do yesterday? he was slow?). Some of you here even try to take the credit off his goals because he is a wing back (?!)... Somehow only Chelsea fans see all these wrongs...
  6. Alex Sandro

    I mean really, who the fuck is this clown?! This is why I hate the transfer period, every smartass is shining and gets recognition...
  7. Romelu Lukaku

    Are people really annoyed we couldn't get freakin Lukaku for 100 million pounds? You could mistake him for prime Ronaldo with the things I'm reading here... Embarrassment for the club? Get a grip. This could be a blessing in disguise.
  8. Nemanja Matic

    Give the wiz a break, he is the literally funniest thing on here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pRf_A07Elyw It will be really funny if he will turn out to be right about this haha...
  9. Romelu Lukaku

    Admins, I saw you said that if we disagree with someone we need to debate it out but this post is absolutely preposterous... Can you really debate a person that writes shit like this? He literally downgrades and looks down on everyone who doesn't agree with him. I am really interested to know how old this kid is. One think is sure - posts like this don't belong on a quality forum.
  10. Nemanja Matic

    Oh my god, are you for real? I am starting to think you are not trolling... "when he marshalled our Midfield better than any Chelsea Player before him in History"... How deluded can you get... I mean, I like Matic but to say he is a football genius is an insult for the sport. And Nainggolan is less versatile than him LOL
  11. The English Football Thread

    I really hope that if the gap will be down to just one point (which can happen), we will react the same way we did in our last defeats. I am pretty sure Conte will play firstly not to lose against Everton because we just can't afford it, psychologically wise. The other games we can win. Surely no Fabregas this time and maybe even Willian for Pedro to help the defence. This is a huge game, probably the biggest we have left. Win this and we are champions I think.
  12. The Conte Thread

    We can and should criticize Conte for yesterday but we also need to look at things in perspective. He is the best thing that happened to this club since we signed Hazard, we need to be thankful and remember that at the start of the season you wouldn't dream of this position we are in. This season is a big success on our behalf and even if we flunk the title (which will be very painful of course) it will not be the end of the world, I think next season we will be much better anyway. That said, I don't really think we will collapse from yesterday's loss. This Conte team is reacting well to defeats and we have seen it several times this season, also, we basically win the games we should so you kind of know what to expect. No need to panic, not yet at least.
  13. Cesc Fàbregas

    Actually, after another so so attempt by Cesc to deliver a free kick yesterday, I remembered Frank Lampard. With all the traptechniek discussion above, I can't reminisce over this player, one of the best midfielders of his generation. Had it all.
  14. Diego Costa

    Can't understand what's all the fuss about, and I really don't see a point comparing goal records with the likes of Lukaku and Kane (a discussion that went on here a few pages ago). You need to understand that it's very different playing for Everton or Spurs compared to being the leading striker of a team like Chelsea. So maybe Costa isn't playing like Sanchez or Kane, but if he scores 20 goals or so in a season and it helps us to a title (which we already know is sufficient) then I don't care if he is not in the top five of the leading goalscorers in the league. Don't know how about you, but I've been craving for such a consistent striker after the downfall of Drogba which was not long after the Double. I think we need to be very happy that we have him and we shouldn't look at the neighbour's lawn and wonder if it is indeed greener. He is playing like a non league striker for the last 3 months and we still have a 10 points lead and we are in the semi final of the FA cup. I really can't see how people compare him with Torres or Shevchenko. I would love to have someone like Aguero/Sanchez/Lewa up front instead of him but I really can't see it happening any time soon. For now, I am actually pretty OK with having him as our leading striker, but I do agree he is not good enough for us to become world beaters. Anyhow, I will love having a season like this one every term, even if we are not THE best.
  15. Eden Hazard

    I agree with you partly but if you are referring to me with the second part of the post then you probably didn't read mine. I said it was a problem because some people are portraying Hazard as a world-class, elite and complete player, and for me, if he will continue to score 10-15 goals in a season and won't carry us in the CL, well, then he will never be this kind of player. I'm not saying that what he brings to our game is questionable, I'm saying that if he wants to be the best, this is not enough. I'm not putting him in bad light, just pointing out the truth. You need to understand the difference, I really can't emphasize it enough. I watched Hazard play football for the last 4 years and I have never seen him been so direct as Neymar was in that game (maybe except the second half against Spurs last year when he came on with fire in his eyes). Overall, the Brazilian had a really scrubby game up until the last minutes, but who will remember that? But if Eden has a quiet game you will probably forget he is on the pitch until the final whistle, that is the difference.
