  1. Man City 2-1 Chelsea

    Decent match ... we played well in part and took the attack to City which is commendable. Would have loved to have something out of the match other than decent performance but no worries, it was fun to watch. We should only be going up from where we placed right now. The only critic would be we kept playing too long in our half ... we need to find a way to seamless transition from back to the mid.
  2. The English Football Thread

    Spurs would suit Jose perfectly ... he has his type of players, underdogs, striker who can score, can play a physical game ... couple of things to be added/removed and they could be strong from the next season. Also with Jose coming in Kane and Eriksen might just stay put which will be a big thing for Spurs ... Plus he brings the experience of the PL which is a massive advantage. I sincerely hope it is not Jose at Spurs.
  3. Sergej Milinkovic-Savic

    Was over-hyped before ... had a good season in the past and now is just a decent player ... Should we go for him specially when we stack already in the middle, dont think so
  4. Chelsea 2-0 Crystal Palace

    WTF!!! Who would have thought that after 12 games we would be 3 in the league ... Superb!!! Lovely it. Special mention about Willian, he seem to be a different player all together ... this is what we wanted to see 4 years back, maybe never late than ever.
  5. Chelsea 4-4 Ajax

    Couldnt catch the first half ... started with 1-3 and thought would watch the game for the next 5 mins because was in half sleep. But the next 30-35 mins, my sleep went for a toss and there was an array of emotions right till the end. Loving it!!! The 2 saves at the end under pressure were brilliant ... Just when u thought Kepa saved us with a superb one you see a brilliant one on the other end.
  6. 15. Kurt Zouma

    Maybe we're already looking for replacements once the window open hence less focus on him ...
  7. Watford 1-2 Chelsea

    Loving this season ... no expectation from my end just enjoying as it keeps coming. And boy! Surely enjoying it.
  8. Chelsea 1-0 Newcastle

    Great 3 points ... all sweat and hard work. One game at time ... until next time, lets enjoy the 3 points.
  9. Chelsea 1-2 Liverpool

    We should have got a point atleast from this game ... Had our share of bad luck or bad days or forgot our shooting boots On a positive note, team chemistry is really going up ... And Kante's goal was a stunner!!!
  10. Chelsea 0-1 Valencia

    The team is bonding well ... Yesterday was a bad day in the office. Lovely watching Chelsea at the moment without expectation.
  11. Chelsea's Transfer Targets

    Fair enough ... I do respect the opinion ... I just got a different view, the current Lampard setup doesnt really suit Kovacic and Jorginho or maybe I would need to see more to be convinced. The tempo has to be always high and both these players I felt lacked it which means there would be no fluidity through the center. Neves for me is more box to box which helps Kante and Madison is more of backup/squad player who has a good work rate plus English quota checked. Mount and RLC surely looks better than Madison but I'm looking at a complete set. As far as how much a player cost, it is a crazy market which is not going to come down and the money is not going from my pocket ... So if we get a player which suits the manager, go for it.
  12. Chelsea's Transfer Targets

    Atleast I have an opinion which is what the forum is about. No matter how ridiculous. But thanks for that respect. Appreciate it!!!
  13. Chelsea's Transfer Targets

    I doubt the 200m on those ... I dont think we have better players (Kante is WC) ... we need players with high work rate in the middle specially under Lampard, strong box to box types to compliment Kante. I believe they have a lot going for them plus they are young and playing in the top flight. I wasnt referring to other positions where we need reinforcements ... was talking only midfield and we need good players (even squad players) to support Lampard's philosophy
  14. Chelsea's Transfer Targets

    Maddison and Nevas next summer ... Midfield sorted for few years with Kante, Mount and RLC ...
  15. Liverpool 2-2 Chelsea

    I thought it was a great game, brilliant on how we approached and played it out ... Loved the way we played specially the first half, ultra pressing and Liverpool's plans went off. Obviously Liverpool altered their plan and went wide which slowed us (something to thing about). The result is surely disappointing but the difference from Sunday to Wednesday was very encouraging to how we gauge the manager. One thing is now certain that Frank's strategy is to press hard and focus is on what we do when we dont have the ball. It is going to demand high work rates from pretty much everyone, this was evident when Kante started and it made such a huge difference. However this is also going to be our Achilles heel this season because we dont have loads of players specially in the middle with high work rates atleast for now. The other real positive I thought was we could unlock Pedro for the first time, Frank's game suits his style (might have a Barca feel to it). Pulisic looked good and the strike which was ruled off side was superb. I know early days but I feel top 6 could be a sure thing this season ... Excited for the next game and we keep improving it is going to be hell of a ride:) P.S. That marking of Van Dijk by Kante on the corner should be how we approach our current season!!! Need to have balls to take on the big ones
