  1. Giroud is just sadly a much better fit for the team, and it is extremely frustrating to watch Morata. His attitude doesn't do him any good either, when he looks like he is giving up and looking into the ground at every chance he gets. Mind you, replacing Costa was never going to be easy for anyone. But the contrast to seeing Costa against Real the other day, and then Morata sulk around on the pitch is just sad.
  2. 1. Kepa Arrizabalaga

    lmao yeah luiz heuheuheueheu Oh wait, this is a thread about Kepa. And I wanted to talk about Kepa's performances in the first matches of the season not Luiz. Kepa has potential to be very good. But why should we avoid talking about his weak points until that potential might be fulfilled? I like him and hope he ends up as a big success. But he has not impressed me so far. My post was not just about today, but also the previous matches where he has looked shaky and let a few goals in I think quite a few keepers in the league would have had.
  3. 1. Kepa Arrizabalaga

    Another not so great goal conceded by him today. Had his hands on it again, but somehow his wrists just seems too weak again to keep it out half the time.
  4. Roman Abramovich

    While I am sure that is what he is told, there is very little reason for Chelsea insiders not to lie about this and deny everything, if it was true. There is huge implications on a potential sale, that they need to shut down rumors of it until it's official. Business editors at The Sunday Times and Jonathan Norcroft are pretty good sources, and to be honest it would make sense, even if Roman loves the club, that he wouldn't want to own such a huge English football club if the country is going to keep treating him like it is.

  6. 3. Marcos Alonso

    I would probably say this as well, if it wasn't for last season, where he also looked useless for most of it.
  7. 1. Kepa Arrizabalaga

    Was always going to be close to impossible to fill the gap Courtois left, who I think really think cemented his rank as one of the best keepers in the world the last few years. So far I am far from impressed with Kepa, but I hope the scouting network, Sarri and everyone else who rated him highly, has seen the potential, and maybe that he just has to settle into the league a bit. I do remember De Gea looking like a bit of a liability at first as well, so here's me hoping Kepa can develop similarly. But it has not been two good performances so far, and the defense does not seem to trust him either.
  8. Chelsea 3-2 Arsenal

    Barkley is a trash dog. Please take off. Alonso... Well... No real alternatives on the bench. But do something.
  9. Chelsea 3-2 Arsenal

    Dear me, Kepa is looking well below the standard Chelsea is used to. The defense isn't helping.
  10. Thibaut Courtois

  11. Thibaut Courtois

    What a snake cunt. Not the least surprised though, always been his personality to be a bit ratty hasnt it? Amazing goalkeeper as well sadly.

    One completely unqualified guy for the job, to a even less qualified player for the job. Nah.

    I agree with your overall point. But just think not giving Arnesen credit for bringing such a talent as Ronaldo to PSV, is a bit silly. That was an incredible signing for PSV and although he was well known and not discovered by Arsensen, he was the one who thought highly enough of him to sign him at that young age. On Lukaku obviously every scout and their mother knew about him, by the time he played for Anderlects youth team and many probably before that as well. But it was Ariel Jacobs who gave him the chance and believed in him even at a very young age. Still think Emenalo should get credit for signing so many of these huge talents, it's not just about being the first to know about them, but also thinking they could be worth the money. Hazard however it's hard to give much credit for, lots of clubs were more than willing to pay the money. We can thank Drogba, RDM and some heroic defending in Munich for that more than Emenalo.

    Yet Arsensen got Ronaldo to fucking PSV. That was a huge scoop, even if he was well known by the point, clearly no big clubs thought he was quite as good as it turned out, and he sold him for a world breaking amount at the time. That is good scouting, even if he didn't come from out of nowhere.
