  1. Southampton - Chelsea

    Giroud > Morata Emerson > Alonso
  2. 9. Álvaro Morata

    He is fucked up. He is not the best striker, but every solid striker would score chances like those. Difference is - he is fucked up. His head is, and always was messed up.
  3. Buffon should've been mad at Benatia, not the ref. If Benatia had done just a little body-check, it would push Real's player out of a balance, giving Buffon chance to defend correctly. But no, Benatia had lift his leg, catching player's chest and side before (if even) catching the ball. Also, both hands at the back... It's pitty, I wanted Juventus to advance. Because Messi is better than this central-forward guy CR, nothing else.
  4. 22. Willian

    Willian key player here? He may be the key of really ruined garbage old door, not of a good new one, if you know what I mean.
  5. The Conte Thread

    Well, I think he has made a lot of mistakes. His subs are always somewhat too late, also players like Emerson and Giroud should've been given more chances. But, he tried 3-5-2. He tried 3-4-3 with false 9. He tried Cesc as CAM, he tried Cesc in 2-man midfield. He tried some things. Reverting to 4-man defense, with this squad which is really suited for 3/5 in defense, isn't really a problem. I mean, yes, we are desperate, but changing to 4 in defense with this squad would be just that - one desperate try, an empty shoot, so what happens happens. You all must be thinking - well, we cannot do any worse than this. Well, guess what - WE CAN. No one can convince me that Azpi - Christy - Rudy - Alonso defense would bring us anything special. We actually have the worst defense, by names, in top-5 now. There is a reason why we play with 5 defenders - to cover all their weaknesses. Even Liverpool have brought VVD and are looking solid and better than us now, no need to mention Spurs or City.
  6. The Conte Thread

    Him being "tactically stubborn" isn't the result of him wanting out of the club. He just doesn't think that this squad can play better under different tactic. Either he wanted to stay, or to go, he would play this tactics. You are writing as he is playing bad tactics on purpose.
  7. The Conte Thread

    Without 2-3 really good transfers we can forget about that, regardless of who manager is.
  8. The Conte Thread

    What are evidences for that? Man copes differently, he is not crazy on the line like before, but I really don't understand people who think they are psychologists and can read Conte's mind, with no real evidence. He just said that he cannot sleep most of the nights when we lose.
  9. The Conte Thread

    I have a weird feeling that he could stay after all. Weird because we are Chelsea and we don't do that. He maybe moans sometimes about transfers, but when you ask him about leaving Chelsea, he is always clear - he wants to stay and work until the end of his contract at least. And I trust him about that, fuck this "OMG he is not crazy and passionate on the line like before, he must want to leave" talk, just listen to him at the press, man is committed. And board re-signed him with a new contract so I think their interest too is to keep him at least for that another year, also financially-wise.
  10. General Transfer Talk

    I think he has never played in 2-man midfield, I don't know if he would be suitable for that role in Conte's (or some other coach's) eyes. But I would like him for sure, he is great talent. Also, let's not forget Milinković-Savić, also a very good young player. Sell Drinkwater (or loan him), buy Weigl/Jorginho/Savić/Kovačić, and 35-40% of our problems are gone.
  11. General Transfer Talk

    Ok, Julian Weigl is also a good option. Point is - there ARE suitable players out there for that position. And Dembele is too old, I agree.
  12. General Transfer Talk

    Again, I will write something about central midfielder. One may say I am obsessed with CM, but I get that a lot. Ok, we for sure miss creativity. A lot of creativity, and I would say, "game controlling" ability. I haven't seen us really dominating the midfield for significant period of time (for half a season at last), since Lampard-Ballack era. And I don't even mean possession dominating, I mean dominating in a balanced way, like our past team did from 2005-2010. So I am asking, can some new wing-backs give us that quality? I really really don't think so. Even Sandro or I don't know. Because their quality is mostly running up and down the pitch, providing width and stuff, they won't give us any control. It would be a lot easier to find midfielder with those qualities than WB. Koke, Saul, Rakitić, Jorginho, just to name a few, who could be available. Dembele from Spurs would be ideal if you ask me, but he is too injury prone.
  13. General Transfer Talk

    Yes, Bakawater.
  14. General Transfer Talk

    Not buying proper central midfielder was the biggest mistake we have made in recent years, one huge let down that will go down in history as a main decision that put this club into the dark. In defense we have brought Christy, not our fault Luiz went totally AWOL. In attack we have brought Morata, well, nobody could know that he wouldn't be good. But either of our defenders or strikers are more useful that Drinkayoko, or Fabregas. I mean, even on their good day, Drinkayoko doesn't offer us enough. We have Kante for all they are offering. And Fabregas isn't even good with the ball anymore and that was coming for years. We may be having some average defenders and strikers, but we have no midfield at all. EDIT: All top 5 teams have a much better midfield than ours, I only rate Liverpool's as not that good, but even their is more balanced than ours, with Can and Wijnaldum, I rate both way more than any of ours (except Kante of course).
  15. Chelsea 1-3 Spurs

    We just got what we deserved.
