    Oscar is Oscar and Mount is Mount ... Honestly not a big fan of comparisons because every player has something unique to offer despite having same attributes when compared... And if you have to compare why not compare with every player who has played in that position with similar attributes ... As a number 8 he can be compared with a 20 year old Lampard.

    Seriously !!!
     
    So how is he going to express himself on social media ... maybe more trophies emojis covering Marina or Chelsea stating it wasn't him!!!

    What would say about a 75m someone who makes much more mistakes than him? 
    Consider that as a baseline and today's market, 30m becomes a steal

    Yes for the price that is quoted around he is a absolutely a steal and more importantly an upgrade ... and then it is up to the coaches to rectify those gaps. But the concern would be the decision making on 1v1 or 1v2 but his instincts & decision making on shots spotting as u pointed r much better than Kepa's

    So to cut a long story short.
    He's average as a sweeper, which could be an issue at times when we play high lines (I did laugh at how badly he mistimed a couple of them on that video).
    He's okay at playing out, not Ederson but not a train wreck either.
    However his main strength's lie crucially in the areas we need it the most right now, in shot stopping and command of his area, which should see a vast decrease in set piece horrors and conceding the first and sometimes only shot on target.
    If that report is accurate all in all I'm sold, especially for that price. Only downside will be we will lose him for a month season after next to ACON, which makes finding a suitable back up pretty crucial.

    Better way to judge will be to see all the goals conceded by Ajax and whether Onana could have prevented them or was at fault in them

    Decent Analysis on Onana 
    Had the same concern on his decision making ability and not sold on him being a ball playing goalie. Biggest issue from this video is that he parries the ball in such a way that it remains in dangerous play. However i do feel he is a solid upgrade at the cost he is available

    A leader is a leader ... doesnt matter if he/she has won things or not, it is how he/she leads the team. If Dunk has that leadership quality then it wouldnt take him long to rally the team and lead them as well. There are many players who have won trophies but they arent good leaders and vice versa. Team would always follow a strong leader. 
    I always mentioned that Rudiger is a good leader but I stand corrected, The one leader we have is Azpi.

    Yes there are issues with our young players but being lazy is certainly not one of those in any one of them ... Believe it was bad strategy, that would be my major criticism ... we didnt think it through & through.

    It’s Lampard’s fault the media and AFTV are going gaga over the so-called Arteta masterclass.
    I am really tired of the same old naive things Lampard has done all season. Glad this season is over and at least we got top 4. 
    I am not even going to bother watching the 2nd leg next week, that tie is done especially the way we are defending and no Pulisic.
    He has until January to sort this out. If same old, I’ll be fully Lampsout.
    It is scary that you have been outwitted by Arteta (and let’s be real - also at the Emirates and SB) and did not open your eyes on how to change the system. 3-4-3 doesn’t work with Arsenal, never has bar Conte and never will. STOP IT.
    Tomo also pointed out something that also worried me. Since the lockdown, we are doing the same thing we are doing with Sarri with Hazard, “give the ball to Pulisic and hope he makes something happen”.
    That has GOT to stop. Yes we have at least Ziyech and Werner in next week, but I want actual team goals not another “give the ball to x”.
    And the defense. I know I have been going on and on about it for months, but damn. Yesterday just adds to why we need a better defense.
    After Havertz, we have to someway get the message to the board that our defense needs urgent surgery.
    You can buy all these attacking players but we will struggle to finish 4th again next season if we go in to next season with that defense. I’ll never forgive that defense after what I saw with West Ham and Sheffield United.
    The attack could score 2 goals but the defense has the character to concede 3 as proven many times this season.
    There will be many stubborn opposition defenses we will tackle next season (like Arsenal), and we can’t be going in to every game scoring 3 goals a pop. That won’t happen.
    This current defense is going to kill us next season if nothing has changed and it will kill any optimism for next season.

    Manchester City have had a £41m offer for defender Nathan Ake accepted by Bournemouth.

    We should target Ake ... would be an upgrade on our current CBs, cheaper alternative, versatile, PL proven, most importantly feel he is Leader which is what we need at the back.

    I just dont get why should we is a need to sell a DM who is still easily among the top 10 in the world. 
    So one bad season in terms of form/injuries/adjustments and we're ready to sell ... seriously
     
     
    Yes he has been injured this season but that doesnt mean he carry on in the same way. 
    Yes he would get decent amount of money to balance our books ... but would that same money buy us the experience which Kante has! Are we that type of club who is worried about balancing the book by sending out their best players! 
    For me Kante brings balance to the team not only by the way he plays but the way he conducts and his experience. I mean we would already have players who r looking up to him. In terms of age and injuries, next season it seems we will have a big squad and with 5 subs we get different types of profile from every player ... smart rotation would mean that we have a fresh squad throughout. And more importantly, whoever comes in to replace him is no where the level he is ... still one of the best DM.

    I think we have sold well. Ramires, Matic, Mata come to mind. But have to disagree regarding Kante.
    1. Conte's 2nd season, I think Kante was still world class. We sold matic, replaced him with Bakayoko and Drinkwater and whats worse was that cesc was supposed to fill that gap. It was a board disaster. Putting it on Kante is not fair imo.
    2. Sarri - we changed from a 2 man mid to 3 man mid, with Kante probably playing the most further of the 3. An unheard of position for him and he still was great. There were so many of us who were happy with his "this side of the game developing".
    3. This season has been an anomaly, injury-wise. Irrespective, he is still World class. Look at the city game. We had Barkley on the pitch and still snuffed out city. 
    The fact that we still expect a 80+m pound bid is probably telling that he is actually worth it all. Also, really dont buy Kante disrupts our momentum. Its about balance and he brings far more balance as a DM to our squad (in terms of attack and defence). His overall play is still great. I mean fabinho is regarded as the world's best DM, i dont think there is a single trait (ball winning, positional awareness, passing range), in which Kante would be 2nd to him. We have simply not being using him in the role which suits him best.He just needs to be stopped running into the ground. Used intelligently.
    Atm, we are anyways not going to be able to sell him. If RM did not go for Kai for the same amount, they wont be going for Kante. Also, like I said, selling is useful when you either have a viable option or an upgrade. At this moment, there is not anyone available who can be close to an upgrade and we definitely dont have someone in our squad as a replacement. So selling him would be a massive mistake. 
    Give him another year, let gilmour get more experience, and the next window we can judge. I feel Kante is massively in FL's plans.

    We might aswell sell Drogba after his ilness but we didnt and he went on couple great seasons. Bayern could sell Robben but they didnt and he was great for them. 
    We sold Matic for example, but can you realy tell the difference if he stayed? We went on buying Bakayoko, then Jorginho and we still dont have a proper DM. Might as well kept Matic then instead of problems we have now selling Baka and Jorgi. 
    The only time someone good should be sold is if they dont want to be here. Saying oh he will be shite next year, injuries, age etc might fire back. Take a look at Madrid and Makelele.

    I hear you and respect the perspective but as I mentioned as to why we should have him. 
    In my opinion, he really had one bad season which is the current one ... last one he was asked something which is not his forte and one before was a shambles because he ended up doing 2 men's job. He still has the legs for another 2 season easy if he is fit. 
  21. Puliiszola liked a post in a topic by coolhead23 in Non-Chelsea Transfer Pub   
    Some one mentioned that he is loved but we still need to sell him. I feel there is not only sentimental value but others values as well which benefit the team.

    TBF, I dont think its even a popular opinion amongst the fans. Most of us understand the importance of having KANTE in the team. Just need him fit for next season. FIngers crossed.

    Unless we actualy bring world class DM and CB, it would be completely idiotic to sell our best defensive player. 
    Yes he is getting on that 30s side, but you usualy dont sell players just because they are getting to that age. Also he had few injuries because he was rushed back too soon IMO. 
    But the fact that we have shite defence has little to do with him. Jorginho and our CBs are often non existing. Alonso is making hotdogs while returing in defence. Wingers dont track back enough. Mount, Kova and Azpi are only ones doing the work. If you place a proper balanced side with good CBs and DM (which is standard if we want to win silverware) Kante will be the key part in the midfield. If we dont bring CB and DM, then we wont be competing for titles, hence its better to at least keep Kante or our defense will be beyond bad. We conceded 20!!! more goals than Pool, City or United this season.
    I mean people want Kante to be creative and to be DM yada yada. He is best b2b defensive midfielder in the world. Thats his job. Not assisting or scoring, not holding the backline but running around and stop opponents from organising attack. But its hard if you are one man with teammates who cant defend against 10 opponents. Have you been watching how horrendus Rudiger, Zouma, Kepa, Alonso, Jorgi are in defensive actions? David Luiz bad. Its just that they are all so bad it has become a standard and they dont stand out that much anymore when making mistake after mistake.
