  1. 19. Mason Mount

    Mount has form on this score, he 'hushed' the Elland Road crowd after scoring their in the playoffs. While i do agree with you in principal i can't say i wouldn't love it if he did something similar at Anfield or WHL (assuming we go on to win that is).
  2. 23. Michy Batshuayi

    Given Michy will be a sub in the world cup, wouldn't it be more useful for Martinez if he's also playing that role here?
  3. 5. Jorginho

    Our squad depth has low-key become really strong this season. Our benches this term have been full of game changing options (as Lampard alluded to himself in a recent match) even though we're still yet to have a fully fit squad available. Think this is the first time since 2009/2010 we have had such a deep squad in terms of quality, recent years it's always been about 15 first team players and the rest scratch players to make up the numbers in domestic cup games (like Kenedy and ageing Ferreira).
  4. Chelsea v Newcastle

    I do as a rule but I will enjoy watching our lads get in the England side one by one, especially when they cause media and opposition fans to have meltdowns after replacing their favourites (it's already starting with Mount getting in ahead of Maddison).
  5. 5. Jorginho

    Everyone says he improved so much but I don't see it, he was already very good. The only reason people (some fans and especially pundits) are starting to acknowledge his class is because Lampard done the very awkward thing of playing him and Kante in the exact same positions Sarri did, meaning it's easier to say he improved as opposed to admit Sarri was right all along.
  6. The English Football Thread

    Wonder if Reece James will be played in CM for England? He will certainly be a massive upgrade on the current options. Only question mark will be if he can maintain a high level switching between RB for club and CM for country.
  7. The English Football Thread

    Certainly puts it into perspective just how good we've got it with Kante, Jorginho and even Kovacic.
  8. The English Football Thread

    My only slight paranoia with Lamps is he may over prioritize English players in the market. Apart from Sancho any English player worth having is either unattainable or already here.
  9. 7. N'Golo Kante

    Small consolation is we atleast have the cover to cope now compared to his first couple of seasons where our CM options were brutal apart from him.
  10. Gareth Bale

    Must be avoided at all costs. Although he's lasted a bit longer than I thought he would at some point he's got a Torres/Alexis decline written all over him.
  11. Ben Chilwell

    Really hope not. We need a new LB but I would rather wait till we get a bonafide top class one if there's none available next summer. Chilwell falls into the same "good but flawed" category our current two LBs do, would be a waste of resources.
  12. Ethan Ampadu

    Apparently he's going to get some chances when Leipzig have a run of bottom half sides in a few weeks. While his lack of chances are frustrating so far I'm not going to press the panic button just yet, Mount was in a similar position at Vittese this time two years ago now look at him.
  13. 12. Ruben Loftus-Cheek

    Tbh I don't actually think playing the game in itself was a bad thing, there was a two and a half week break between the last PL game and Europa final and that long without a game then going into such a massive one would have caused a hell of a lot of rust (something Conte alluded to in his time here when he explained why he played a lot of the first team in an FA Cup game). I think that match may have actually helped us in the second half in Baku as we looked sharper than Arsenal all over the shop. However playing it on that pitch all the way in the USA with the one player who should have been left home wrapped up in cotton wool was inexcusable.
  14. The English Football Thread

    Maybe we're deliberately letting United stuff us so Oles job security is back to safe as houses again?
  15. The Board

    Can't see it being anyone other than AVB given he started the segregation. Conte a potential outside bet (possibly wanting the funds used for his transfer wishes) but unlikely. Mourinho in fairness did like the idea of promoting young players he just bottled it when he came to realise it would take time instead of win him a title there and then.
