  1. 6. Nathan Aké

    Ake - Bailly is a good partnership.
  2. Tiemoué Bakayoko

    He's a much better all rounder, the only thing he has in common with Ramires really is that they're both black and have short hair.
  3. Tiemoué Bakayoko

    Fabinho would've been the better buy but I do think Bakayoko will surprise you guys when he's in.
  4. 10. Eden Hazard

    Every season around this time of the year people always freak out about Eden leaving...
  5. Daniel Sturridge

    Even in the Pedro role he would've been useful.
  6. Neymar

    As if Barcelona/Messi would ever allow Neymar to leave lol.
  7. Tammy Abraham

    The loan contract is till the end of the season, not until the end of the last game. So that means till the end of playoffs.
  8. 10. Eden Hazard

    Unless Eden seriously pushes for the move, there is no way Roman would allow the sale. And I don't think Eden really wants to leave. Just typically Real Madrid media circus stuff really. They might be interested but like I said, unless Eden really, really wants to go. There's no way we'll sell him.
  9. Tammy Abraham

    The transfer window is closed. You can't recall anyone unless it's open.
  10. The English Football Thread

    Of course. Forgot they were only four points off.
  11. The English Football Thread

    I'm happy with a draw tbh. 2 points lost puts us 9 ahead I think?
  12. The English Football Thread

    Palace proper frustrating Spurs. First decent PL team they've faced in ages. Regardless of the result, it shows that Spurs will struggle to maintain the form they've been showing, as some of us have been saying on here for weeks.
  13. General Transfer Talk

    Marcos is anything but a liability tbh. Sure, not the strongest defensively but quite competent. Offensively he rarely loses the ball too. He's actually very smart going forward with the ball. Decent delivery too. Slots in at LCB if we ever needed him to. He's a good all round player. Always room for players like that in the squad. I want an exceptional talent at LWB to raise the level of the team though. Marcos is a good enough deputy regardless.
  14. General Transfer Talk

    Guy really is just playing FIFA at Utd isn't he.
  15. Virgil Van Dijk

    Doesn't mean anything at all. All of our CBs stats are distributed a lot more because we play with a back 3, not a back 4 (2 CBs).
  16. 6. Nathan Aké

    Ake is not a LWB at all for me. Sure, he could be deployed there because he has decent ball playing ability and a left foot, but he isn't comfortable there at all.
  17. 10. Eden Hazard

    Rightly so they shouldn't be pressing Hazard with contract talks atm. That can happen in the summer.
  18. 4. Cesc Fàbregas

    Can you imagine him being flanked by two B2B destroyers next season? He's going to be a vital part of the squad next year. Tonight's performance proved it. What a man. Nothing but respect for how he's done here so far.
  19. 7. N'Golo Kante

    Bright future. DID NOT KNOW HE HAD THAT SKILL IN HIS LOCKER! Apart from Fabregas and Eden, he was the best player on the pitch. What a performance. Probably my favourite Kante performance so far. He's becoming more and more proactive - you can tell that he's still not too confident in his ball playing skills but they've improve steadily since the start of the season. He still has lots more room to grow. Some player we have here.
  20. 4. Cesc Fàbregas

    What a performance. My MOTM. Our football is just so much better when he's on the pitch. Loved his role as the floater between the forwards and midfielders. He really wants that second PL medal. He deserves it. Has quietly had a very good season imo.
  21. Chelsea 4-2 Southampton

    You're slightly overrating VVD. He wins more duels because he plays in a back 4. He isn't that much faster than Cahill.
  22. 19. Diego Costa

    Even a half decent Costa and the title is wrapped.
  23. Chelsea 4-2 Southampton

    It's not a personnel problem per se. We have capable players in the air defensively. It's a tactical/mentality problem.
  24. Chelsea 4-2 Southampton

    He's actually one of the best in the game when it comes to it but he's been terrible over the last few months, alongside our defence. He's usually very good at plucking it from the air.
  25. Chelsea 4-2 Southampton

    One of Cahill's strengths is aerial duels, it doesn't matter how good you are. It's a tactical problem.
