  1. The Conte Thread

    It has a combination of all and all parties involved but primarily it's f**kup in the transfer window where the board has to be majorly blamed for. And Predictability would follow it where the manager & the players are at blame. I was expecting Conte to take the 3-4-3 to another level in terms of tweaks like the Atl. Madrid game but it is so far less. Plus the fact we arent doing our homework well.
  2. The Conte Thread

    Dont be surprised if they win against them ... You expect Jose to play an open game against City ... He will sit, be physical and wait for a counter ... Jose will aim for that one point, 3 will be a bonus.
  3. 22. Willian

    Willian's selection was always a mystery and will remain one. From the day he's part of the team till today, he is the same there is no spike in his level of play. Best moment was when he won the best player, everyone around him was so bad that he won the best player. What is more fun is that after one decent performance lot of us consider him as a super player ... after all we need comedy in life to have a laugh.
  4. Crystal Palace 2-1 Chelsea

    What the fuck are doing in there ... Is it complacency? because that surely look like that ... where is the urgency and determination of champions!!!
  5. Crystal Palace 2-1 Chelsea

  7. Crystal Palace 2-1 Chelsea

    Good one ... Lets keep the generosity going ... they didnt have a goal in so many games, lets open up for them. What next, they are about to become one of the team to have a worst start by losing all their match .. hmm, fingers crossed.

    Dont u? P.S. Just kidding!!!
  9. 9. Álvaro Morata

    Thats true ... But they did reasonably well when Kane was out. We dont depend on our #9 but we do depend a lot on Hazard and City again showed that once u isolate him, we run out of ideas. Bats not replacing Morata straight away on Sunday makes you think if Conte is convinced/confident about him. That could be a big worry for us plus the fact that we dont have a 3rd striker. Maybe we can gamble with one of our young guns.
  10. Chelsea 0-1 Man City

    Very bad game for us ... City & Pep literally exposed all our weakness. This was one of those games where losing was not the issue but how we did is the worry. It seem like a practice match where City was told to attack while Chelsea was to defend and still we were not in our elements. - Strategy was average. Not sure why did William came on as a sub when u have a second striker in place. No Moses was a surprise. - In game we were average, passing all over the place, positioning was not there, intelligence in the game was missing. We did have few good moments but they were far too less for a team who are Champions playing at home. - We didnt exploit their left side despite the fact that they had Delap there, if I m correct the first real chance on our right came in around the 65th-70th min. We made Delap look like a WC player - Lack of quality on the bench is killing us. Plus too much dependency on Hazard is a big worry. - The point for taking Fabergas is to move the ball from our half into the other ... he just didnt have any impact, kept falling deeper & deeper. - City managed to dictate an away game at the home of the Champions despite not having Augero, Kompany, Mendy & Toure in their 11 is a real worry for us. City & United looks too strong and the only team to offer them some competition is suppose to be Chelsea but going by yesterday game we are way behind them. Hope Chelsea as a club realizes that if they want to be ambitious they need to help their manager in achieving that ambition & not side lining him.
  11. 9. Álvaro Morata

    Perfect gameplan for Morata ... 2 up front all time, for me that is his strength when he plays alongside another player up front not along (he is trying to adapt to the single striker format but it isnt his strength) . Our 3-4-3 was crying out for change with Morata in and have to say very impress with the change that Conte put in.
  12. Chelsea 0-0 Arsenal

    It was a strange day for us, there was pretty much all the elements in the game expect the goals. We were in it the first 15 mins and then Arsenal came back, they showed determination which I was a little surprised by specially whatever is happening there. I thought we were missing a Drogba/Costa type of striker for that little something, having said that Morata's hold up play was really good. It will take him more time and us (someone like me) to get accustomed. Hindsight after seeing Bakayoko play I felt Fabregas wasnt the right choice to start but then had Pedro convert that lob/pass from Fabregas and it could had been a different view. Luiz was brilliant until he had that brain fart and not sure why Hazard didnt start specially when he did for his national side, reserve game, was a substitute in the last game. All in all, Arsenal were there for the taking and we missed it ... 2 points lost of us is how I would sum it ...
  13. Riyad Mahrez

    I take your feedback.
  14. Riyad Mahrez

    I understand different position, different skill set, etc, etc ... All I m trying to point is that Mahrez is a player who was available (thats what it seems like) and would have added quality to our squad whereas Drinkwater could just be someone who would sit on the bench & wouldnt a level up then what we already have ... thats where the comparison in terms of quality . I cant help if that message wasnt conveyed correctly with my limited English skills. And yes, Dembele is no way worth £100m even if Neymar is "worth" his fee.
  15. Diego Costa

    Brilliant assumption. It could very well be right.
