  1. 4. Cesc Fàbregas

    I know we hardly helped his career, but he's hardly set the world alight anywhere else. Even Jack Cork has managed to stick it out in the Premier League and he was one of our own too.
  2. Damien Duff

    What a guy! Was incredible on the left in his time here, perfect out and out winger..

    Fans have no say in this. You've seen what so called 'protests' have achieved at rival grounds like Emirates, it does nothing. We're at the bottom of the pile to influence any change, it has to come from within the club itself. It requires someone, preferably RA himself, to wake up and say "hang on a minute, maybe our structure at board level is affecting structure on pitch level". Until that happens this will be a repeating cycle.
  5. Arsenal 3-0 Chelsea

    Not sure yet. That was pathetic, but Costa and Hazard look up for it when they've got the ball. It really depends on how long we're going to have to endure this defensive mess for.. ..that's me trying to be less cynical @CHOULO19
  6. 21. Nemanja Matic

    That's true, Moses has shown maturity since coming back. Again, it's just not addressing our defensive frailties. My vote would be for Chalobah to be honest, having started out as a CB and progressed to DM coupled with his experience in Serie A, he would be a good addition in midfield for Matic and keeping Oscar/Fabregas competing. Ahhh, the lack of recruitment is so infuriating at these times when you find these weaknesses.
  7. 21. Nemanja Matic

    I'll admit I was one of those that thought I'd understand the rationale behind it . With all the attacking flare we have I thought Matic could perhaps be the link between Kante and attack, but once I saw Kante's distribution I quickly realised Matic's inclusion simply doesn't make sense. As I said, his attacking abilities are severely lacking and confusing. He loses the ball in key areas of attack and even hinders the wave by not passing quickly enough or to the right player. Again a lack of recruitment for a true CM has cost us. To be honest, I'm not sure how much even Kante-Oscar-Fabregas would make a difference. Until we get things right defensively, our offensive players have nothing to build on.
  8. Hull v Chelsea

    Would be very surprised to see anything remotely similar to a 3-5-2 against Hull, feel its a risk he won't be taking so soon to begin a game with. Terry's back hopefully so I'd at least like to see Alonso in for Ivanovic and playing LB for Dave to play RB. It's unlikely and what we'll probably see is the following; Courtois Ivanovic - Cahill - Terry - Azpi Kante Willian - Oscar - Matic - Hazard Costa
  9. 21. Nemanja Matic

    Like I understand there was desire to keep hold of him through the Juventus rumours and it is apparently true that he did fancy a new challenge. But if that's the reason he's in the starting XI, to keep him happy, then it's ridiculous. I can't see what he's adding, Kante's covering the defensive work. Matic is static, he's inept going forward and his running style leaves a lot of questions. He looks awkward when he goes forward, posture reminds me something more along the lines of Jordan Henderson. And you know if you're compared to Henderson how bad one is
  10. 19. Diego Costa

    4 yellow cards in 6 appearances. Hull, Leicester & Man United to play. If he's smart, he'll get himself booked vs Hull & see his suspension through Leicester and be back for Man United. Knowing our luck, he'll pick up that fifth yellow versus Leicester. The stage is set for Michy.
  11. 19. Diego Costa

    This is a weird statement considering how out of shape he came to us beginning of last season lmao. It's about time he shut up about Atletico and put in the hard work for this team. Recognition deserved, lets hope his team-mates follow suit.
  12. 21. Nemanja Matic

    it's truly become infuriating! They need to at least give a f*ck if they're going to be this shit.
  13. The Board

    Getting more and more difficult to disagree with this. I explained a few days back why Manchester City are one of the best run clubs in the EPL right now, but Chelsea's regression seems to be more and more rapid. Roman needs to hold members at board level accountable and soon!
  14. 21. Nemanja Matic

    By far the most retarded player on the pitch yesterday, what the fuck is he still doing in the team.
  15. Tammy Abraham

    how the years have damaged me my friend!
