  1. St. Patrick's Athletic - Chelsea

    No, I didn't. That's simply one part of defending in that formation and situation. That is not going to happen near as often as you make it sound. The pros FAR outweigh the cons of his defending. My whole point was showing the bigger picture but you decided to narrow it down to one type of situation. Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  2. St. Patrick's Athletic - Chelsea

    Jorginho's defending is unbelievably underrated. He's terrible when defending in open space, as he gets beat by strength and speed pretty easily. But he is brilliant at pressing, brilliant at interceptions, and works tremendously hard. He is a great "team defender" if that makes sense. He also isn't afraid to stuck in. I just get tires of the myth that jorginho is terrible at the defensive side of the game. It's just not true, especially when pressing is the most important way to defend in modern football.

  3. General Transfer Talk

    Honestly, league performance is almost always a better barometer of how top a team is. And City have proven that. Yes they have underperformed at times in CL. But i know you love to take every opportunity to hate on pep and city.
  4. 17. Mateo Kovacic

    Why do you think he is a season away from being ready? I'm not disagreeing, but wondering what your reasoning is. Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  5. New England Revolution 0-3 Chelsea

    I agree on almost all of that. My only disagreement is that RLC isn't at more risk than any other player in this match. It was just really unfortunate. I would rather none of our first team play, but it's clear that was not allowed. Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  6. New England Revolution 0-3 Chelsea

    You're looking for a reason to get at Sarri...he could have gotten injured just as easily in a training session. RLC really isn't injury prone. He has constant problems with his back, but what he injured tonight is not like it a common thing for him. Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  7. 27. Andreas Christensen

    That's a really poor comparison saying he is basically Luiz. They are COMPLETELY different types of players. Luiz is a physical beast that is aggressive in both tackles and pressing. He's also brilliant at opening up play with diagonal balls. Christensen on the other hand lacks physicality, he's more of a finesse/elegant type of defender. He reads the game better (when he is playing well). He hasn't developed long-range passing, but I think it would come once he gets his full confidence back and more playing time. They both seem best in a back 3 and that's about where the comparisons stop.
  8. Chelsea 1-1 Eintracht Frankfurt

    Was his back flaring up against Frankfurt, or was he just cramping? I thought sarri said he was cramping, which I understood just as calf cramping. I could be wrong here Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  9. 12. Ruben Loftus-Cheek

    The irony of this picture is that this was one of the few times he actually lost the ball lol. Didn't really have much of an option though Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  10. Eintracht Frankfurt 1-1 Chelsea

    He completed one semi recently when a couple people got injured. I don't remember the game but I remember thinking that he would have come off if subs weren't forced. Definitely needs to work on being able to play 90 though. Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  11. Eintracht Frankfurt 1-1 Chelsea

    Honestly, I'm okay with that. I'd much rather azpi fill in at CB than have Cahill play. Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  12. Chelsea 2-2 Burnley

    We need to not be too dramatic. Yes, we did not play amazingly, but some really good stuff happened. We deserved to win by far. They scored two set pieces and created nothing open play (one half chance that I remember). 2 players got injured (kante out really hurt us in the 2nd half. It's time he got the recognition he deserves for being brilliant in that position). We should have scored another one or two. Their constant time wasted stopped any time of flow from the game. It was embarrassing. Their goals came from a brilliant strike and their second shouldn't have counted. I forget who (maybe wood) was offside on the back side, behind RLC. Then he blocked RLC from being able to run out to the guy on the wing who headed it across. That is clearly offside yet nobody is talking about it. I don't know why. They don't score that and we cruise to victory. Also the added time was absolutely absurd. It should have 6 or 7 minutes added. Then an injury and that whole fiasco took about 2 and half minutes of the stoppage time, so there should have been 9 minutes total. It's really not that hard to get right, I don't understand.
  13. 20. Callum Hudson-Odoi

    Looks like he did his Achilles. The way he went straight for the Achilles went it happened doesn't look like a calf strain/tear. The way he was walking after also seemed to be Achilles. Not good news. So unfortunate. Right when he's breaking through. He'll be out awhile if this is the case. Full tears often take a year.

    Or he's actually injured...that's embarrassing from you Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  15. The European Leagues & Competitions Thread V2

    Out of curiosity, why do Liverpool deserve either 10 times over City?
