    If anything that game at The Emirates enhances my point, we went there that day with a midtable standard team and held out like one of them would. I would be delighted if City get him, serious attacking fullbacks is what is stopping them becoming scary under Pep, Bertrand isnt good enough going forward, certainly not for a Pep side. Honestly i have never gpt the uproar towards his sale, i can understand it with Lukaku and Mata despite not agreeing but I've just never got it with Bertrand, compared to the left backs we have had and the one about to arrive i don't think hes anything to shout home about.

    Cole form tailed off after the double season, 5 managers after that had the chance to make the change yet not one did. 1 or 2 managers you can make a case for it being an error, but 5? Munich 99 times out of 100 would have ended 6-1 to Bayern, a mix of Cech and a poltergeist who hates Spurs got us through that night. Also with Ryan when he got a run in the side during Benitez's time due to an Ash injury he didn't really impress and if you look back on his thread from that time almost everyone unanimously agreed he was a squad player at best. He's a decent enough player but has found his level in my opinion.

    You weren't around when Torres was here then?

    Lukaku wasn't ready for Chelsea in 2012, heck even West Brom he was often used more from bench. Azpi was brilliant as a left back, admittedly it should have been more a short term move but he was head and shoulders above anything I ever seen of Bertrand, who by the time he left was ridiculously overrated, probably more so than anyone on our books bar Torres (that fact not everyone thought he was total and utter shit makes him overrated by default).

    KDB and Sturridge ill give, but what could the club have done differently with Bertrand and Lukaku? Bertrand's level is a squad player at a top club or a starter at a mid level one, he wanted the latter. Lukaku wouldn't accept number two behind Costa so he left.

    I don't think many manager's aiming to win the league would have a 20 year old leading the line, especially when the attacking midfielders were also early 20's. We probably wouldn't have got top four with that combination and certainly wouldn't have gone near the title.
  7. Alex Sandro

    There was NEVER this much noise for Koulibaly.
  8. Tiemoué Bakayoko

    He very much does, his runs to wipe players out of the game is a hugely underrated asset.
  9. Tiemoué Bakayoko

    We haven't had a problem breaking team's down with Kante and Matic. Unlike 2014 that's not the area we need to improve on.

    Literally every time Ray speaks i cringe at the thought that he use to be assistant here. His football talk is simplistic for the standard of a football fan, let alone coach. God knows what Guus and Carlo thought when he spoke tactics to them.
  11. Is this the best Chelsea team ever?

    (sorry for the late reply only just seen this). Sorry to be pedantic but that team did at Anfield
  12. Virgil Van Dijk

    We will see a lot of rotation at wing back i think. In the Euro's Antonio always made a in game switch in that position because of how demanding the position is. I can see Alonso starting all the domestic cup games and CL group games plus the PL games were we have half an eye on a big knockout game.
  13. Virgil Van Dijk

    Because one of the (if not the) best left fullback/wingback in the world is available and the same is not true on the right. Sometimes a player becomes available were you have to forget about certain higher needs in the team and snap them up, and Sandro falls into that category just like Ash did 11 years ago.
  14. The Board

    We will not finish 10th again.
  15. Tiemoué Bakayoko

    Everytime Ray speaks the only word that goes through my mind is simpleton, how the hell was he an assistant manager here?
