  1. Leicester 0-1 Chelsea

    Jorginho off possibly guys?. Not sure of the veracity of this but...
  2. Chelsea 2-1 Man City

    Hoping that this player will be Gilmour.
  3. Chelsea 2-1 Man City

    Agreed that in the end, overall we were the better team. Sorry, your rhetoric made it sound like City were bad . Anyways, BIG victory! So close to securing that top four spot now, 4 wins should definitely do it imo.
  4. Chelsea 2-1 Man City

    I thought both teams played really well personally. Discredits our performance by saying they were bad.
  5. Chelsea 2-1 Man City

    I think you're underrating how well we played defensively today - a lot of other teams would've buckled under the pressure and even though we snuffed the majority of their chances they were constantly only 1/2 passes away from creating really dangerous situations. Just have to applaud the management and the players here for an outstanding tactical win.
  6. Chelsea 2-1 Man City

    I believe we should use N'Golo and Jorginho who are at the latter ends of their careers, to phase Billy into the team. Billy has both of their best qualities wrapped up in one neat package. Whilst not as disruptive as Kanté, hes certainly more talented on the ball than both. He has the tenacity and the heart of a lion and reads the game extremely well - I think (hope) this is what Lamps and Jody are planning for him.
  7. Chelsea 2-1 Man City

    One of the best PL games in a long time, super quality from both sides. Superb game - great tactical victory from Frank, Jody and the rest of the boys. City showcasing why they're such a ridiculous team at times but some great performances from our chaps (Kanté and Christensen were superb defensively) to keep them away from the box. And we should've arguably scored 3/4.
  8. Chelsea 2-1 Man City

    Yeah this is the key takeaway from Kanté's game today. If we use him in that holding role, because of his ability to read and disrupt the game - he's invaluable against danger men. KDB is arguably the best CM in the world and Kanté shackled him (of course he still had to score a ridiculous free kick) - now how do you take this further? Kanté will be huge in tough CL games next season and beyond.
  9. Chelsea 2-1 Man City

    Always in my heart buddy.
  10. Chelsea 2-1 Man City

    Kanté's getting older too - makes sense to have him shielding the back four now. Feels like we have two complete opposites as DM options atm - Jorginho is super comfortable on the ball but lacks that defensive nouse and athleticism to disrupt play in front of the back four, whereas N'Golo's strength lies in the latter, and whereas he isn't anywhere near as bad as Jorginho is off the ball on the ball, he's not so comfortable with dictating from deep, but that's fine. He still held his own quite well even against one of the best ball winning teams in the world (yes I believe City are incredible at winning the ball and keeping it, hence why they have so much possession). As long as Kanté has options beside him that can relief the pressure on him (Gilmour would be a very interesting partner for him, Kovacic too in different yet similar ways), Kanté can continue to grow in that single holding role. It's where his future lies imo. The more he plays there the more comfortable he'd be too. Super exciting times next season - so many options for Lamps in midfield and going forward. Just need to sort out that defence now!
  11. Chelsea 2-1 Man City

    Christensen proving today that he is our most gifted defender. He seems to be getting over that mental block he's been experiencing, he's looked really good since the restart. Top top performance. If only we had a VVDesque CB to complement him...
  12. 4. Andreas Christensen

    El monstro performance today. Quite clearly our most talented CB I think...
  13. 1. Kepa Arrizabalaga

    Seriously hoping he does a DDG because this is looking dire. He's meant to be the most expensive keeper in the world but is arguably the worst in the league right now. Doesn't help his team out much at all. Also his wingspan seems to be super short for a goalkeeper.
  14. 4. Andreas Christensen

    Can I just say he's been really good recently. Is definitely our most talented pure defender. Finally not shying away from physical challenges and is finally showing off that defensive intelligence of his. Just needs a top partner and we'd be okay at CB. I'd actually advocate selling Rudiger and Zouma, bringing back someone like Ampadu and buying a top top CB like Koulibaly(?). Then we have the option of Christensen, Koulibaly, Ampadu and Tomori which is a huge improvement on what we have currently. He could end up being a very very good CB for us if we keep the faith.
  15. 23. Michy Batshuayi

    This guy seriously stinks man, we definitely need to bring in proper competition for Tammy. Even play Giroud but not sure how fit he is.
