  1. Sarri But Not Sarri Thread

    Totally agree. We can mention our bad spell when we "bottled it", that period when we lost 6-0 to City and whatnot. Only difference is that their crisis is happening NOW, and not then. All this talk is because of the last season when United obviously overachieved with this crop of players, aka Mourinho-effect happened, and Spurs were in great form... then, when it really looked like you need to get 76 points to be worthy CL place contender. In most of the seasons in last 10 years it was enough to get 71 points to finish in top4, like we did this season.
  2. They have no chance in (semi)final to win UCL, City have. Just being pragmatic.
  3. Messi deserves to win Ballon dOr, it's been a long time since his last time. So really happy CR got knocked out. Next I want fuckin' City knocked out, so they don't come any closer to us in European comps success. Come on Spurs!
  4. General Transfer Talk

    If we get transfer ban postponed, we should offer Barca Willian + cash for Coutinho. Really win-win for everyone, they clearly want Willy. (If Hazard leaves, of course).
  5. 17. Mateo Kovacic

    With present RLC's form, I think we should let Kova go and buy ourselves some young prospect as a Jorginho substitute (who would succeed him soon) like we tried with that guy from Zenit. Kova should play regularly at some more Modrić or Dembele DLP type role, in 2-man midfield.
  6. Liverpool 2-0 Chelsea

    This is really really not true. I remember many many big games with Conte and Mourinho where we were really not up to it. UCL k-o games against Atletico and PSG especially, not to mention 2015-16 season.
  7. Liverpool 2-0 Chelsea

    Why? Except Kante, Jorginho is doing the most of our defensive work from midfield, he is really ok defensively. Or you think Kovačić is significantly better? He tried to deploy more balanced side, and our strikers made him that choice easy. Willian instead of Higuain also gives much more cover at the back. You don't need to go all-out-attack, or all-out-defense, man wanted to put balanced side, and he did it really good. We played against side which will finish league with 95+ points, on their stadium, and if we had a bit more luck with Hazard scoring or them NOT scoring two goals in 3 minutes to somewhat kill us off, draw could have been obtained.
  8. Liverpool 2-0 Chelsea

    I have more and more faith in Sarri, and no, that's not sarcasm. CHO really doesn't look ready for top opponents, and he was even worse before, hence why he didn't play. RLC looks better, but he was injured 3 times through season which interrupted his progress. Emerson is better than Alonso, but not that much better. And it made sense to play false-9 versus Liverpool, given the form of Higuain. Can't complain about man one bit, I think we played good, but Liverpool on Anfield is really tough for everyone this season.
  9. Diego Costa

    Thank you, Conte!
  10. Slavia Prague 0-1 Chelsea

    Really hoping Willian, Pedro, Barkley and Kovačić gets involved in this game - that would mean CHO and RLC likely both plays against Liverpool.
  11. 12. Ruben Loftus-Cheek

    Yes, but that doesn't mean that they are very top players and that what they offer is what we need in this moment with Sarri (Alonso and Willian).
  12. 12. Ruben Loftus-Cheek

    Yes, we have also won the league with Alonso and Oscar as starters. Poslano sa mog SM-A310F koristeći Tapatalk
  13. Cardiff 1-2 Chelsea

    We were totally lucky... but for all that bad luck that happened this season, we deserved it. For Christs sake Sarri, drop Kovačić, start playing RLC. Kovačić should play in a formation where he doesn't need to go in opposition third. He needs to improve defensively and play role which Dembele played at Spurs. He will never be good enough to be offensive asset, I'm sorry Mateo.
  14. Everton 2-0 Chelsea

    Our defense is so horribly bad that even attacking teams against us choose to play all-at-the-back, because they FUCKING KNOW they need 2 chances to score one goal. For fucks sake.
  15. Everton 2-0 Chelsea

    We have Hazard, Kante.. and CHO? CHO?! Stop this CHO shit, like he is second coming of Garrincha. He is just a kid that may sometimes be slightly better option than Pedro or Willian, but that's it at this moment.
  16. 10. Eden Hazard

    Sad thing about will be that in Real, even if he might not be in his the best years, he will look way better because of better players around him and it might look like those are his best years.
  17. Chelsea 1-1 Wolves

    For the bolded - THANK YOU. I only gave him credit for his crosses. He is playing here and there in last weeks, and that should be enough for now, but he definitely must start against Dynamo. It's clear as a day that he won't improve us so much at the moment, if at all, and we can't afford that much of a risk, we are in a fight for our lives. Agree with your other points as well, this was positive game at the end, only the result was missing.
  18. Chelsea 1-1 Wolves

    Sarri plays RLC for 37 and CHO for 33 minutes, brings out Jorginho to put WIllian and play 4-2-3-1, and no one will give him credits for that? People are always moaning that he doesn't switch to "plan B" or that he doesn't give chance to young lads. And I know most of us are hurt by Sarri's decisions made in past, but he was really good yesterday. EDIT: Not to mention that fuckin Alonso is nowhere near first XI, which is also very very great. Also, RLC said himself that he is slowly getting minutes because of his back problems, hence why Kova started. We were clearly superior side and got a bit unlucky with their goal, our defence is really awful. They are 7th at the table for a reason. They took points from almost all big sides this season. And about CHO - he did some good crosses, but he wasn't much better than what Pedro is usually overall. It's one thing to score in EL, and other thing to score in EPL with defensive side like Wolves. CHO made some awful clumsy mistakes, I remember that he once passed directly to them actually.

    Kudos to Sarri, did everything really well today. Poslano sa mog SM-A310F koristeći Tapatalk
  20. The English Football Thread

    This sounds like a Conte meltdown we had last season.
  21. The English Football Thread

    To some degree what Alonso was for us. Of course, Alonso being inferior to Sterling. Agree 100%, system player is a great term.

  23. Chelsea banned for TWO transfer windows

    Higuain will go back to Juve only if there is better offer on the table for both sides (for example Liverpool coming in for him and want permanent deal so Juve and Gonzalo both like that), and I cannot see that happening.
  24. Chelsea banned for TWO transfer windows

    I just wonder where this leaves us with Higuain and Kova. I think this stops us from registering NEW players, right? Kovačić and Higuain are already registered, so we just need to prolong their loans or buy them, no?
  25. Chelsea 3-0 Dynamo Kiev

    Dear God Pedro, fuckin' score!
