  1. Chelsea - Southampton

    VVD wins close to twice as many aerial duels compared to Cahill, his pace also helps him cover a bigger area in defence, it makes it easier for the tactics to work.
  2. Chelsea - Southampton

    Yes, if you put a big and fast VVD in our defence, who wins 75% of his headers it will improve.
  3. Chelsea - Southampton

    Just buy VVD and bring back Christensen. Azpilicueta, Luiz and Cahill can battle for the last spot.
  4. Virgil Van Dijk

    The problem for Zouma is that his positioning, awerness and technical ability is very limited. VVD has alot more to his overall game and he uses his size to better effect.
  5. Virgil Van Dijk

    Dele Alli came from league one two seasons ago, so I don't think it matter that much where VVD came from. He has been one of the best defenders in PL these last two seasons, he has superior physical attributes compared to our defenders and he is comfertable with the ball. I don't mind Christensen comming back and I think he has a good chance to win one of the starting spots against Azpilicueta, Cahill and D.Luiz next season. I don't think it would be wise to fill our squad with "academy products" in desperation of having one make it though, the timing have to be right, like it was for Courtois.
  6. Virgil Van Dijk

    We have had an amazing run before christmas, but in the last 11 league games we have conceded atleast one goal, wich is a cause for concern. I don't think there is a problem to buy what we need, if we sell Costa to China, sell Batshuayi, add the transfer fee from Oscar and our increased income from sponsors, CL money etc.
  7. General Transfer Talk

    This is the squad I want to see next season : GK: Courtois, C.Gordon. Eduardo CB: Luiz, VVD, Christensen, Cahill, Azpilicueta WB: Moses, Mendy, Alonso, (Azpilicueta, Fabinho) CM: Kanté, Fabinho, Fabregas, Matic. Chalobah WF: Hazard, Sanchez, Pedro, Willian ST: Belotti (Sanchez,Pedro)
  8. Virgil Van Dijk

    Ake was standing next to Kane when he scored with his head (1-1). Luiz and Cahill struggled alot with Benteke, Zaha, Rashford etc in our latest games.
  9. Virgil Van Dijk

    I think there are way to many PL teams with big physical strikers, or other target men, that would bully that defence. Thats why we need someone like VVD to balance it out.
  10. General Transfer Talk

    I think we need more physical/athletic players, not fake ones like Matic.
  11. 19. Diego Costa

    The idea is that Pedro would be the false 9, his movement off the ball is superb and he is always looking to get behind the defence.
  12. 19. Diego Costa

    We have beaten Leicester and Bournemouth 3-0 with Hazard-Pedro-Willian and played good attacking football. There is no excuse to continue to play Costa in this form atm.
  13. Andrea Belotti

    http://www.mirror.co.uk/sport/football/transfer-news/chelsea-see-51m-andrea-belotti-10217916 €60mil bid and €40mil bonuses, but Torino is rumoured to want a €100mil bid. We should just offer them the whole sum, if Costa is going to China for something simillar. We are going to spend alot on a new striker regardless, might as well buy the best one we can get.
  14. Andrea Belotti

    Belotti does alot more work for his team compared to Lukaku, thats one of the biggest diffrences. We need a striker that can help put pressure on defenders when needed, that can hold onto the ball and distribute it with precision. I also like Belottis aggression/warrior mentality compared to Lukakus tendencies to blame teammates and sulk when things dosen't go his way. Hazard-Belotti-Sanchez || Pedro-Willian I would be very happy having these attacking options for next season. Both Sanchez and Pedro can do a job as striker, when we are resting Belotti. There is also the option to play 3-5-2 at times, if we add another central midfielder like Fabinho to our squad. That would give us countless options.
  15. 19. Diego Costa

    I think we would be better off with Hazard-Pedro-Willian, if Costa continues with these performances.
