  1. 4. Cesc Fàbregas

    This would be extremely efficient if we only had top class wing backs...
  2. 14. Tiemoue Bakayoko

    There’s no excuse? Guy was carrying an injury (but still played because the team has no CMs) and has had no pre season coming off a pretty big injury that he tried to manage for almost half a season. Take that into consideration and also take into consideration that he was playing next to a defensive liability in Cesc. Irrational criticism.
  3. General Transfer Talk

    Yep. Zouma, Ampadu, Clarke-Salter, Tomori, Trevor Chalobah etc. We’re incredibly stacked at CB.
  4. General Transfer Talk

    We have Rüdiger and Christensen on the bench and Zouma out on loan but you still want to us to buy another CB (VVD is valued at £70m) when there are other areas in the team that actually need an upgrade? With how tight we’ve been in the transfer window recently, we need to prioritise signings. CB is literally the very last thing we need to look at.
  5. Chelsea v Everton

    Caballero Rudiger Christensen JCS Zappacosta Ampadu Drinkwater Kenedy Musonda Michy Willian
  6. General Transfer Talk

    He isn’t even better than Rüdiger. The man is worth £40m max and he won’t be sold for that, and he isn’t worth the £30m extra Soton are asking at all. CB is the only area in the team where we don’t actually need to spend.
  7. Chelsea - Watford

    Luiz MOTM. Absolutely outstanding at the back today and really charged the team forward in a crucial time. People won’t talk about his performance though.
  8. 23. Michy Batshuayi

    Michy is best coming off the bench - Ole Gunnar Solskjaer-esque.
  9. 14. Tiemoue Bakayoko

    Guy’s had no preseason and is carrying an injury and still played. Yes, bad game, but he didn’t let the mistake get to him and was a lot better after it. Still has to work on his awareness a lot, but he’ll get better. Just love that he stepped up for his team today even though he was in pain/injured.
  10. The Conte Thread

    I agree but we just don’t have proper options at left back and I’d naturally like to see the team play more adventurously. Also, if Azpi is at left back I’d probably start Zappa. Zappacosta Luiz Christensen Azpi back four seems quite solid.
  11. Chelsea 3-3 Roma

    Thought we had our wake up call in 15/16... apparently the board need to experience it again to realise they aren’t leading the club in the right direction per se.
  12. 13. Thibaut Courtois

    Courtois has had a really average start tbh. But then again, so have a lot of our players.
  13. The Conte Thread

    All you have to do to stop a Conte back 5 system is genuinely pin the wingbacks back to their own defensive third.
  14. The Conte Thread

    We haven’t even spent this summer technically. We’re -30m in player sales. I think it might be time for a back 4. 433: Courtois Azpi Christensen Luiz Alonso Bakayoko Kante Fabregas Pedro Morata Hazard
  15. 10. Eden Hazard

    It wasn’t submitting properly lmao.
