  1. 12. Ruben Loftus-Cheek

    This is all well and good but RLC is 25 in January, he isn't 21 anymore. Further, he has serious deficiencies (zero off the ball work) in his game, that were still clearly there when he had is sole consistent 3 months for us at the end if Sarri's reign. Let's be honest, RLC has been riding a hype train since he was 16/17 and there hasn't been any hard proof that the talent he showed in the youth ranks can translate to the pro game on a consistent basis. Sure, he is silky on the ball when in the mood and fit, but that has only been glimsped twice which was the middle of his spell at Palace and then Feb/March-May 2019. That is about a total of 6 months for a 24 year old bloke that made his debut at 17.

    Indeed. He is very good at finding space and timing his runs. The problem on here is that it is quite clear that a lot of people must've been only looking at stats, Twitter and Youtube clips of him prior to signing as what we have seen isn't really a surprise. Further, today he was much better as he was playing in the position that I have said all along he would/should play for us i.e. No.8/No.10. Yes, he did play No.11/No.9 last season but if anyone had actually watched him, they would've spotted that he wouldn't get away with playing those positions in the PL due to his playing style. Further he is has been a slow starter in pretty much every season he has started. For me, I am not expecting him to be fully up and running until November at the earliest and even then, he should be given this season to acclimatise.
  3. 12. Ruben Loftus-Cheek

    For me if RLC was sold I wouldn't lose any sleep over it. The guy is pushing 25 and has yet to prove he can keep himself fit for more than six months, still does zero work off the ball and continues to dine off the hype that he built up 7 years ago. For sure, Barkley is similar but I do not really see much difference as whilst RLC has a little more quality on the ball at least you know Barkley can stay fit.
  4. 9. Tammy Abraham

    He has 2 years and 9 months left. There was a clause in his contract that was activated last season. SFL confirmed this in the Summer. https://www.google.com/amp/s/amp.theguardian.com/football/2020/jul/10/tammy-abraham-activates-one-year-chelsea-contract-extension
  5. 9. Tammy Abraham

    Whilst it was only Barnsley, Tammy played well today. For me, he isn't starting material for a top 4 club but he is a very good squad option atm and he still has time to develop. For me, a CF can only really be fully judged at 25/26, especially when they play as a lone CF, as it is similar to CB in that it requires a lot of physical strength and experience to play it properly. For me, even if he only ends up long term as as CF2/3 that is good enough as a CF2 will cost you £35m+ these days.
  6. 2. Antonio Rudiger

    I am not so sure. Rudiger was pretty dire last season. I have said it for a while now but if Rudi/Zouma/AC leave it is hardly a surprise as each one of them is compromised by some fault in their game. People disagree over which one is worse but the fact of the matter is that it is dependent on your own preferences in what you want to see in a CB as to which one you want to keep.

    I really hope Mendy is better than Martinez as he just put in another very good performance tonight.
  8. Chelsea Transfer Pub

    Unless he was actually a second choice and we haven't been able to get the first over the line.
  9. Chelsea 0-2 Liverpool

    I am sorry but tactically that was absolutely diabolical. Further, SFL should've brought a CF on at half time for Jorgi as well. As I said, in that situation he isn't of any use as he hasn't got the legs and secondly we then wouldv'e had someone to target. Honestly, shocking stuff.
  10. Chelsea 0-2 Liverpool

    If it is me, my changes would be Tomori for Jorgi and Giroud for Harvetz. Kepa James Tomori Zouma Alonso Mount Kante Kova Werner Giroud. Essentially hit the long ball to Giroud and try to get flick ons on Werner. Giroud needed for set pieces. Jorgi is not a good idea in this situation as he does not have the legs to get through the yards.
  11. Chelsea 0-2 Liverpool

    It was a red card but and AC has probably made the wrong move as going a goal down is probably preferable to going down to 10 men with a whole half to play. However, the midfield should never be giving Henderson all that time and Kepa should be off his line a lot quicker as he can see the whole play.
  12. Non-Chelsea Transfer Pub

    I do not want to see Bale under Jose in a Euro Championship year in which Wales have qualified.
  13. Brighton 1-3 Chelsea

    What happened? He has always been like this as I and a few others have pointed out. Off the ball he is really poor, on the ball he isn't quite as good as everyone makes out. Only people that do not see it are those still riding the hype train. Yeah, Giroud or CHO for RLC is the answer atm. However, it is worrying how they are making Mount, Kante and Jorgi run around in circles. This is why I kind of see he logic in a DM/Rice being targeted. Agreed.

    Villa have had a £16m offer for Martinez accepted. Wouldn't he be a safer option than Mendy?
