    Mate, Kovacic came in with Hazard. Its easier to look world beater when you playing alongside Hazard instead William...
  2. Sarri But Not Sarri Thread

    Its refreshing to watch a game with no sideline histrionics after every goal is scored.
  3. 5. Jorginho

    I'm still think right now he creates more problems than anything. When Arsenal was creating chances for fun in the end of 1st half, Jorginho was completely lost, marking no one, he can't win any 1vs1 battle, he can't harass the opponents. In the second half he have an assist to Abumayang, and he was lucky that was a soft off-side. I'm not really concerned about the number of touches, to be honest.
  4. Chelsea 3-2 Arsenal

    What a player Hazard is.
  5. Chelsea 3-2 Arsenal

    The difference between Hazard and William is brutal.
  6. Chelsea 3-2 Arsenal

    Geez, Jorginho almost gave an asssit to Abumayang (lucky that was off-side), and he cant win a single 1x1 situation.
  7. Chelsea 3-2 Arsenal

    Kante is a destroyer. I think its pretty weird to see Kante playing that close to the opponents goal.
  8. Chelsea 3-2 Arsenal

    Jorginho cant recover a single ball.
  9. Chelsea 3-2 Arsenal

    Jorginho is putting a horror show there. Sarri soon will find out PL is a different animal compared to Série A. I mean, when Arsenal got the ball the team is playing with 10 men. Jorginho is bad at positioning and he is not marking pra covering anything. Kante must play as DM.
  10. Chelsea 3-2 Arsenal

    Haha. Some people here dont have a clue about the game. Its pretty clear the problem here is the team got no midfield att all. Arsenal players are free in the edge of the box. Kante, Barkley and Jorginho are complety clueless when Arsenal os creating chances from the sides, leaving the oponents free to shoot.
  11. 29. Álvaro Morata

    Haha. I think I just watched a diferent game, because Morata performance today was nonexistent. The team was basically playing with 10 men. A CF that after 90 minutes only had one shot (blocked by defense) when the team was already winning 3-0 getting praised by his performance is a "little" odd.
  12. Deadline Day!

    Most reports are actually saying Chelsea wasn't willing to pay that kind of money in this transfer window.
  13. Kepa Arrizabalaga

    70m for this Kepa keeper = desperation.
  14. Jan Oblak

    Oblak is average as you like. You dont buy a GK that cant save penalties.
  15. Thibaut Courtois

    So...what Jason said doesn't make any sense. Cech was ditched because he was a declining GK. It means Courtois doesn't have any special feelings about replacing Cech.
  16. Thibaut Courtois

    Thats exactly why you can't let managers made all the decisions. Ditching Cech for Courtois was a decision made by Sir Jose Mourinho, not to mention the vast majority of the fans backed that decisions back in the day, mostly because people agreed that Courtois was a better GK and because of course Mourinho was Chelsea, and everything decision he made was supported.
  17. Sarri But Not Sarri Thread

    Thats unfair, since both managers didn't have squads that were good enough to win their leagues, and its safe to say they were overachieving. Spurs squad is not even worth finishing 5th, let alone finishing inside top 3 for 3 seasons in a row. Its a lot easier to be Guardiola when your team have unlimited sources.
  18. Sarri But Not Sarri Thread

    All I can say about your post is that you can't evaluate player's qualities or you are just over pessimistic, and there is no "fact" here, you are just giving your opinion and imo your opinion in this case is as wrong as saying William had a 3 game spell of being untouchable. Anyone who knows one thing or two about the game understand that not achieving a top 4 finish with this squad is not acceptable.
  19. Gonzalo Higuain

    Higuain is a not a top striker in my books, I mean, don't see him as an improvement on Morata, Giroud and Batshuay to justify the 50m price tag.
  20. Gonzalo Higuain

    Its quite unbelievable that some people are frustrated because the club is not getting an average 30 years old player for 50m...more unbelievable that some people really thought Higuain was a target, when its well known that the club don't pay big money for player in their 30s. People seem to get every bullshit coming from journalists that don't work for Daily Mail.
  21. Gonzalo Higuain

    Another one who was fooled by Pedulla twits. lol Not sure how can anyone not think that guy is full of bullshit. According to him Chelsea would get half of the Juventus squad.
  22. Sarri But Not Sarri Thread

    This squad was 5th because Conte did a poor job last season. As simple as that. With the current squad a top 4 finish is mandatory, specially when the manager is supposed to be a "seria winner'. If you look back at last season, the team didn't get a top 4 finish for losing games at home for teams like Burnley, and getting trashed by Bournemouth at home and losing 4-1 to Watford. Are you telling me Burnley, Bournemouth and Watford have better squads? Despite winning PL in 2015 and 2017, since 2011 in this forum people keep saying the squad is below average (usually to save the manager's ass from any kind of criticism). A team with Kante, Hazard and Courtois (3 of the best players in the last WC) is good enough to end the season inside the top 4, and imo its manager fault if he fail to do so. In other positions the squad is also full of decent players. People say William is "trash" (most people say so because they are angry that he showed Conte no respect), but when teams like Barcelona and United are looking after him, we should think twice if he is really that shitty. Chelsea squad is not only better than Spur's squad, but WAY better, and is in same level as Liverpool team.
  23. 29. Álvaro Morata

    Its completely false that these 120m could be used to buy a lot of talented player. Right after a club sell players for big money, other clubs will overprice their own player in order to get the most out of the situation. I don't remember a single time when a team sold a player for big money then was able to invest the money in lot of good players. Liverpool sold Torres for 50m, then had to pay 35m for Andy Carroll. Junvetus sold Pogba back to United for 105m Euros, then had to pay 90m euros to get Higuain... Neymar was sold to 200m, so Borussia asked 105m for Dembele (!!). That 120m would not mean more quality in the squad, the team would still be getting the same players but for a bigger price.
  24. Bernard

    Cannot think about Bernard and not think about the 7x1.
  25. 22. Willian

    This. William is a frustrating player. His WC display was a typical William in so many ways (when the game is tough, he usually just gets the ball and then passes it to a nearby player, or try something stupid without producing any real chance of goal), but the names people are throwing around to replace William is quite pathetic if you ask me. Sometimes I get the feeling people think real football is like playing video game, where you can get a 19/20 years old player with an overall of 79, then after a single season the kid already is a 88 rated player...or some of them are salty because he put some emojis in front of Conte in a instagram pic.
