  1. The English Football Thread

    Di Maria has been consistently terrible for United except for a couple of good matches in the beginning.
  2. Top Four Predictions

    I don't want Arsenal to drop out of Top 4 --they might fire Wenger. #WengerIn
  3. Cesc Fàbregas

    Haven't you heard? Every respectable website [such as Dailymail] published the scandalous story. I almost wish it was Diego. It would have been even funnier.
  4. Cesc Fàbregas

    Maybe Cesc kicked the bus after punching it.
  5. André Schürrle

    Thanks for everything, Andre. Good luck!
  6. Nemanja Matic

    Yes, a defensive midfielder's main job is to defend and to destroy the opposition's chances rather than create them. He failed at his main job at that particular moment, and yet that costly mistake gets largely overlooked by most people. My point about Andre and Cesc was that they did their main job: to create and score goals, but for some reason had gotten far more stick for the goals conceded than the defensive midfielder did for a similar(if not worse) mistake. Don't you see how ridiculous it is? As for "without him we would have lost," without Andre and Cesc's goals we would have lost to City and Schalke respectively, but that didn't stop people from blaming them. Double standards at their finest. I like Nemanja a lot, but this is not the first time I've noticed that people are far more willing to ignore his mistakes than other players'. He used to be underrated, but lately it's becoming the opposite.
  7. Eden Hazard

    He looked tired and lethargic at times, but expecting him to be at 100% after the Liverpool match is unreasonable. Hazard is not very effective when we play so negatively. He needs the ball to make something happen. Still, a nice assist.
  8. 15. Kurt Zouma

    It's probably pretty safe to say that Zouma is a starter now. If he started against Liverpool and City, he will start against worse sides.
  9. Nemanja Matic

    I seem to remember Andre, a winger, getting a lot of stick for failing to track back when Man City scored in the first game. Never mind that Andre was the one who scored our only goal too(and what a world-class run it was). I also remember Cesc, an AM, getting a lot of stick for being fouled and dispossessed close to Schalke's final third(!), which resulted in the counter that could have been easily stopped by numerous of our players. And never mind that Cesc was the one who scored our only goal too. But when Matic, a defensive midfielder, makes a mistake in our half that eventually leads to a goal, it's apparently okay. And unlike Andre and Cesc, he didn't even score a goal for us, but it's okay. Because it's Matic. Such double standards are pretty baffling. It seems Matic can do no wrong. If his name was Mikel or Oscar, he would have been crucified.
  10. Loïc Rémy

    Credit to Remy. It's hard to score so consistently when you barely get the playing time. Remy scored 1.05 goals per 90 minutes in the Champions League+PL Costa scored 0.81 goals per 90 minutes in the Champions League+PL Costa had better watch out.
  11. Oscar

    Oscar is clearly not fit to play against better sides, especially after playing 120 minutes earlier this week. He looked knackered and generally useless. He should be afraid for his place in the XI. If Willian plays as well as he played today and Cuadrado impresses(and I think he will), Oscar might be the one who is dropped. I like the lad, but it's very likely.
  12. Nemanja Matic

    That's why it's been worrying me. I love Nemanja, but this sloppiness of his has become far too frequent for my liking. And he's pretty often out of position, pressing too high and not managing to get back in time. Mikel would have been crucified for Matic's mistake today.
  13. Eden Hazard

    Roman might have more important things to worry about with all the shit going on in Russia.
  14. Wulfert van Ginkel

    Milan are actually a good team for him to develop. Milan's midfielders are very poor and if MvG is better than average, he'll be played because Milan and Pippo need the results on the pitch. Inzaghi started him against pretty good teams like Lazio and Udinese. If he wasn't so injury-prone, MvG would have gotten plenty of playing time at Milan. Regardless of Milan's current results, it's a club with a great history, so getting some playing time there will show how good MvG is at dealing with pressure. He just needs to do better and impress. So far, he hasn't impressed me at Milan. He's not Chelsea material (at least not yet). I want an upgrade on Mikel and Ramires, but at least right now MvG isn't the answer.
  15. Wulfert van Ginkel

    I'd like to agree, but I've seen no evidence that MvG is ready to be promoted. He's 22 already--just a year younger than Oscar--and still barely has any experience and doesn't seem to have much confidence. I don't see MvG having any future at Chelsea unless he steps up and has a very good season at Milan. This is his chance. I hope he grabs it.
