  1. 23. Michy Batshuayi

    Batshauyi is the type of player that if he didn't sign for us would have gone to a Everton/Villa/Palace level club scored loads of goals and have fans off all the big clubs clamouring to sign him without looking at the bigger picture of his all round game and how he fits in, exactly like his fellow Belgium stirker's before him.
  2. Gianluigi Donnarumma

    Should be avoided at all costs. Big ego combined with mentally weak and Mino as an agent. He's got disaster written all over him, furthermore he isn't actually that good and is only highly thought of because of his age, the older he gets the less "amazing" he will be looked as.
  3. Romelu Lukaku

    Diego may have been technically average but his tactical intelligence is streets ahead of Lukaku's. If Rom was even half as good in that respect he wouldn't get scrutinized so much. Beyond being technically shit his work rate is woeful, doesn't/can't press properly, has shit movement and beyond that a truly abysmal attitude with delusions of grandeur. Dodged bullet doesn't do this justice, we are in United's debt big time for this.
  4. Romelu Lukaku

    He would have been as disastrous as Torres. Ok he'd score more often but his all round play would be equally as horrific as the Spaniard. I struggle enough watching Bats and he only starts once a month, Rom would have got me sectioned,
  5. Romelu Lukaku

    You have to give kudos to what a blinder Lukaku has played into getting in such a position where he is an undisputed starter at one of the world's biggest clubs. When he was with us, he didn't have a price tag to prop him up (as we saw with Torres, a big price tag will give you 20 times more playing time and patience if it's not working) meaning he would have to earn his place in the side on merit, which lets be realistic, he wasn't good enough to do and he knew it. He also knew that if he scored goals at Everton some big boy would ignore any shortcoming's initially and make a punt (it happens so often, Benteke, Bent two other major examples) so going back to Everton was another masterstroke by him firstly £28m on a player back in 2014 was unprecedented for Everton meaning he had a guaranteed place in the side and clubs would get starry eyed by the goal record, which United did. United then lumped £75m on him, meaning he's now got what he wanted all along, he's now at one of the top clubs with a guaranteed starting spot, no matter how badly he plays or if Martial/Rashford are more deserving. If he remained with us to this day he would likely be occupying the role Batshuayi is now, which would be appropriate to the level he is as a player so you can only really say well played to him for getting into such a privileged position and thank god it isn't us lumbered with him.
  6. 23. Michy Batshuayi

    And there's a reason his chances have come in cameo's as he's proven to be a decent enough option coming off the bench but he has never proven himself as a starter. I he get's a few starts we will be screaming blue murder at him by match 2.
  7. 23. Michy Batshuayi

    Bats got chances at the start of the season and while he scored a few his general play was Torres level abysmal. That, mixed with the fact the Willy, Hazard and Pedro false 9 system works really well and arguably see's our best footy makes it the correct choice.
  8. 10. Eden Hazard

    You could tell by Jose's early interviews he was looking to settle down after his European tour and was on board with the direction we were heading in, so much so he went on record after we lost to Everton saying he was happy with the performance despite the loss and at the stage we were at preferred it to winning ugly, quotes are at the bottom of this page. http://www.skysports.com/football/news/11945/8927730/chelsea-boss-jose-mourinho-says-he-is-not-obsessed-with-champions-league I think after a few months he realized he wasn't capable of such a build and resorted to type. A lot of people, me included, gave him the benefit of the doubt he was doing it to get top 4 or possibly the title and will carry on with such project afterwards, but it wasn't to be. Although while we are on that subject looking back the Lukaku signing was really strange, he was the opposite of the way we were trying to go and if we did succeed in getting Pep Rom would have been chased out of Cobham with a machine gun after the first session Did we get suckered in by his claim he supported us and that oscar winning acting on the Stamford Bridge tour?
  9. Huddersfield 1-3 Chelsea

    Hardly, have you forgot how abysmal Bats was as a starter? He's a decent supersub but thats it.
  10. 9. Álvaro Morata

    I agree with resting him but i would go false 9, Michy is a decent supersub but more often than not abysmal whenever he starts.
  11. 9. Álvaro Morata

    Fair enough, different perspective's i guess, i just don't feel any of his sackings were done without serious good reason, even Jose the first time looks correct in hindsight.
  12. 9. Álvaro Morata

    So Scolari, AVB, Carlo and José were sacked because they weren't winning the league and nothing else? Nothing to do with rubbish performances and next to no positive evolution of the squad?
  13. Romelu Lukaku

    Do people still think he was a better option than Eto'o or even Ba in 13/14? Jose has made two big decision's regarding Lukaku, and thankfully he made the right one with us and the wrong one at United.
  14. 9. Álvaro Morata

    Which manager was sacked purely for not winning the league?
  15. Romelu Lukaku

    He's played the full 90 in every match this season bar the Carabao Cup games, hilarious how he off all people has become Jose's new Ivanovic
