  1. Kylian Mbappe

    He keeps impressing me everytime I see him play, even when Monaco struggled against Juventus he did several positive things against europes best defence. Today he looks to have secured Monacos ligue 1 title with a brilliant assist for Falcao in the first half. I don't think there would be a problem at all for him to play as our striker in 3-4-3 or 3-5-2. His pace would be a huge threat to any defence that pushes up high and his linkup play is superior to Lukaku and Costa. Hazard is already playing very close to Costa most of the time, so it's not like Mbappe would be isolated as our striker. *edit: Make that two superb assists for Falcao.
  2. General Transfer Talk

    Top shelf targets: Sanchez, Griezmann, Verratti, Isco, Belotti, Mendy, Ghoulam, Mbappe Second shelf: Morata, Fabinho, Bakayoko, Koulibaly,VVD, Semedo, Mertens I would be very happy if we bought 3-4 of these players for next season. I ignored Lukaku and Nainggolan, because I don't want them.
  3. 4. Cesc Fàbregas

    I wouldn't be suprised if we signed another central midfielder, but I think that might be to switch more between 3-5-2 and 3-4-3 next season. In a 3-5-2 formation Fabregas would start everytime.
  4. 4. Cesc Fàbregas

    I would only consider selling him if we bought Isco or Verratti as a replacement. We need to have atleast one creative option in our central midfield, because there are to many teams in PL that are happy to "park the bus" and get one point of us.
  5. Chelsea 4-2 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.
  6. Chelsea 4-2 Southampton

    Yes, if you put a big and fast VVD in our defence, who wins 75% of his headers it will improve.
  7. Chelsea 4-2 Southampton

    Just buy VVD and bring back Christensen. Azpilicueta, Luiz and Cahill can battle for the last spot.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. 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)
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. General Transfer Talk

    I think we need more physical/athletic players, not fake ones like Matic.
  15. 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.
