  1. Charly Musonda Jr.

    Former seems to be doing well at Palace, only behind Zaha and Cabaye as their best player. With he and Abraham getting the minutes and plaudits, they'll do what Tbo & AC managed to do/doing. That's why I doubt we'll see Ampadu like that, we seem to blood in players already in first-team situations. (Boy it'd be nice to re-sign Bertrand lol!)

    Still about are we Layla
  3. Charly Musonda Jr.

    Youth and Chelsea is a systematic problem rather than a Conte problem. If you can't trust Chalobah or Loftus-Cheek, I doubt Ampadu will be starting. But it would be nice to be proved wrong. Hudson-Odoi would be a nice cameo too behind Morata & Michy lol

    We barely play the 27 year-old CM, I'd be flabbergasted if we played the 17 year-old one.

    Lol what? January 2017? I'll bite, elaborate pls.
  6. Bournemouth 0-1 Chelsea

    True, but our last 4/5 fixtures over Christmas are at home 16/12 Chelsea v Southampton 19/12 Chelsea v Bournemouth (CC) 23/12 Everton v Chelsea 26/12 Chelsea v Brighton 30/12 Chelsea v Stoke City
  7. The Conte Thread

    Lmao ridiculous press conference, barely any mention to Bournemouth instead asking stupid questions on Carlo Ancelotti & Steve Holland lmao! If anything this is Juve-Conte lashing out at the fabrications. They were so desperate to talk about Carlo they even speculated on Carlo to Everton
  8. 14. Tiemoue Bakayoko

    Good quotes from him, sounds like he's aware of his limitations but is learning on how to improve.
  9. Chelsea 4-2 Watford

    Nat will be up for this lol
  10. The Conte Thread

    FTFY Ridiculous how we're in a literal 2 year cycle now. Seems now that we've won 2 PLs they want Champions League glory again. And with the most successful CL manager of all time hovering around....
  11. 10. Eden Hazard

    fair enough, won't pretend I watched Barcelona near enough to know. I've understood Suarez has been poor in 2017, so at least we wasn't in such discussion
  12. 10. Eden Hazard

    Don't know man, on an individual performance he was better than that whole MSN combination. His role in the comeback versus PSG can't be understated either. Top scorer in Brazil's successful WC qualifying campaign too iirc. It's not like he doesn't deserve to be in that top percentile bracket imo.
  13. The Conte Thread

    Not surprised at all. Sky are really going for this Conte v Mourinho narrative with more ammunition this year, last year it was The Return for Mourinho which we ruined with that 4-0 win, so now they're going to make it Conte v Mourinho rather than Mourinho v Chelsea. Funny thing is the game is in 2 weeks and we've still got Watford, Everton, Bournemouth & Roma to go before then
  14. The Conte Thread

    Let this notion go lol. Our vision isn't coach-dependent. Our success is based on head coaches doing what they can with the squad they're given by the board. This is not changing anytime soon and it's difficult to argue it when we've been as successful as we have. Right now it works because players seem to respond to new coaches, new manager syndrome so to speak. That's why we won't have a manager that will last >3 years, ideas get stale and players become comfortable and complacent. Hell any given top club now won't last with a manager longer than 3-4 years now. Fergie and Wenger were the last. I even see Zidane leaving/sacked from Real within 2 years.
  15. The Conte Thread

    Yeah I don't disagree we've gone more defensive when the situation calls for it. But the original point was Conte has no plan B in games, to which I direct at what manager actually ever does have a plan B in a game? Seldom do you see a team change tactically in any given game.
