  2. 29. Álvaro Morata

    That’s my whole point - it’s what Torres used to get praised for as well. If he had a game where he did the basics right he’d suddenly have played a good game.
  3. 29. Álvaro Morata

    Basically, sometimes there are players that can carry you to a title challenge. Guys like Hazard, Kanté... Morata isn’t that sort of player. My point is, if Morata was the best 9 in the league we’d have an outside shot at the title imo. Of course there are further weaknesses we need to address but sometimes some players transcend that and can cover those weaknesses (if you have enough difference makers in the 11). Of course his performance wasn’t awful but it wasn’t good either. This is starting to feel Torres esque almost - praising him for having a 5 or 6 our of 10 when it’s the very minimum we should be expecting.
  4. 29. Álvaro Morata

    He plays like an inexperienced 19 yo sometimes. I’d only say that this was a devent performance if he was actually that but he isn’t. He cost us 70m, and is 26 now, supposed to be hitting his prime but he’s just not good enough atm. You can’t say that yesterday was a performance where played really well. The bar is so low for Morata, honestly. Why? He was not too long ago our record signing, I don’t understand why people give him a pass all the time. He’s so average right now that any half decent performance where he isn’t totally anonymous or shit gets praise. I gave him a pass last season as a bedding in season but this season there’s not as much mercy from me.
  5. 1. Kepa Arrizabalaga

    I chuckled.
  6. 29. Álvaro Morata

    No title challenge for us with him spearheading the way unfortunately guys.
  7. 10. Eden Hazard

    Full freedom fully fit Hazard is going to be a problem this season. He was everywhere in his cameo - left, central, on the right. We’ll see how it goes but he could single handily secure us a good season this year.
  8. 5. Jorginho

    You should rewatch the second half.
  9. 17. Mateo Kovacic

    Good luck. Private message me about this.
  10. 1. Kepa Arrizabalaga

    Not sure he’s actually on 10m wages a year... don’t believe Matt Law’s wages considering we didn’t wanna pay Courtois that money. Don’t think Kepa’s on 200k a week. It’s probably closer to £15m overall.
  11. 1. Kepa Arrizabalaga

    Seven years because of amortisation, to spread the transfer fee over the contract. 70/7 = 10m per season on the books.
  12. 20. Callum Hudson-Odoi

    Young superstar doesn’t have a thread so here we go.
  13. Chelsea 0-0 Lyon

    Ampadu is quality at CB man. Definitely the best role for him.
  14. 20. Callum Hudson-Odoi

    Him and Ampadu are actually clear. Looks like they’ll be heavily involved... about time.
  15. 20. Callum Hudson-Odoi

    Really hope he starts...
  16. 7. N'Golo Kante

    Too much FM/FIFA like man. You think we can get all that done in less than two weeks?
  17. Perth Glory 0-1 Chelsea

    Basically - I think you underestimate his football IQ and his excellent ability to adapt and improve.
  18. Perth Glory 0-1 Chelsea

    Forgot about that site. You are indeed Special my friend, thanks.
  19. Perth Glory 0-1 Chelsea

    People still continue to doubt this 2x PL and World champion...
  20. Perth Glory 0-1 Chelsea

    Anyone got a link to the full game?
  21. 7. N'Golo Kante

    MY LITTLE WORLD CUP CHAMPION ❤️
  22. 10. Eden Hazard

    Yeah, full quote seems a lot softer. I reckon Sarri can win him around and make him stay. It’s basically Conte’s fault he didn’t sign a contract earlier last season when it looked like he would.
  23. 5. Jorginho

    Mahrez could easily start. Point is he isn’t really going to sit on the bench per se, he’s gone because the squad needs some competition and depth. Could easily start over someone like Sterling/Sane if they aren’t on form for example. He’s equally as good as them. Jorginho wouldn’t have that much competition at DM.
  24. 5. Jorginho

    Jorginho would walk into City’s eleven imo. He’s better than 33yo Fernandinho and that crock Gundogan - that would be his competition. They wouldn’t spent £50m on a bench player.
  25. 5. Jorginho

    Can’t underestimate how huge this signing is - we actually managed to steal a player that Pep’s Champions proper coveted... also signals a philosophy change. Kanté and Jorginho will be a joy to watch.
