  1. Chelsea v BATE Borisov

    Im going to this one, and i have so far never seen us either lose or concede from open play.
  2. 27. Andreas Christensen

    He deserved all the hype last year, his inclusion tightened up our defense big time, infact it was probably the most solid defensively we were for years at one point. We weren't to know he was going to so spectacularly lose the plot after his first mistake.
  3. 10. Eden Hazard

    If you see the full interview then you will see he didn't say it randomely, he was asked who he would like to play for again and if you look at the managers he's played for so far it was a given he would say Jose.
  4. 29. Álvaro Morata

    As strange as this sounds his missed chances is the one reason i haven't totally given up on Morata yet, to constantly get into those positions is a skill in itself and that's why i simply cannot put him on the same level as Torres, El Nino just stood static most of the time and we were basically playing with ten men and a stranger up top doing his own thing. How many times on average in say 5 games did Torres get a genuine chance of a goal? 3 maybe 4 at most, Morata beats that number in 20 minutes vs PAOK alone. As much as Morata frustrates me he doesn't come close to Torres in shitness in my opinion. As far as the bolded line goes, this might prove to be an unpopular opinion but we really missed a trick not going for Lacazette.
  5. 29. Álvaro Morata

    Not even close, i think some of you are forgetting just how bad Torres was!!!
  6. Doesn't really matter either way, he will never see the pitch under Sarri.
  7. 10. Eden Hazard

    If we keep Kovacic and Eden and find a solution up front i feel we have a serious shot at the CL. A lot of maybe's rn but we ain't a million miles away.
  8. 10. Eden Hazard

    The direction we head in, he has pissed two league titles here so i highly doubt getting a 3rd is a dealbreaker. Educated guess he wants to play for an attacking team and have a genuine chance of winning the CL, it's up to us to show him we can provide both.
  9. 8. Ross Barkley

    Why is this thread so quiet? If RLC ever plays half as good as Ross did yesterday his thread would explode.
  10. Josh McEachran

    He isn't an attacking mid, he plays deep, the few times i have seen Brentford he never entered the final 3rd outside set pieces.
  11. 28. César Azpilicueta

    That's a mild way of putting it. https://www.skybluestalk.co.uk/threads/player-ratings.91841/ I haven't seen such a sheer amount of negative reviews on any of our loanees since PVA and Bruma went to Leicester.
  12. 6. Danny Drinkwater

    Chalobah while a top guy is a bang average player, even more so than Drinkwater, he couldn't get a look in at Napoli or even Burnley, if he was owned by another club and we signed him people on here would call him the new Papy. As for Ruben, Drinkwater is totally irrelevant to any discussion with him, they were fighting for different positions under Conte and the same is true under Sarri.
  13. 6. Danny Drinkwater

    Which talent did we give up to allow him to play 5 games?
  14. The fact he's been loaned out despite striker problems and a decent goalscoring record says everything to how crap an all round footballer he is. I don't know what the answer is but it definitely ain't Batshauyi.
  15. Mason Mount

    I think there's a higher chance of that if Derby don't go up, if they do Frank will almost certainly want Mason for his shot at the PL and unless he's given borderline contractul guarantee's of game time from Sarri he will almost certainly go back. In an ideal world they just miss out this season, Mason returns here to challenge the big three in midfield while we send Ampadu and maybe even CHO to Derby, they piss the league spend a season there in the PL then return at 20 ready for regular football at Chelsea. Thinking well ahead but yeah
  16. Chelsea 1-1 Liverpool

    It's surely going to be Kovacic.
  17. Liverpool 1-2 Chelsea

    Never did i think a day would come where we go to Anfield and have more Scousers in our side than Liverpool do.
  18. West Ham 0-0 Chelsea

    Just looked he (Noble) is only 31 I could swear he's been around since the early 00's.
  19. 24. Gary Cahill

    For all of David's faults one thing you can't question is his mental strength, although you could argue with him it works against him aswell, he could make the biggest mistake in the history of football and carry on like it didn't happen. It's a shame he didn't get Sarri or even Conte as a manager during his first spell here, imo part of the reason he didn't furfill his unreal potential (and when i say potential im talking changing perspective on the way people view a CB potential) as his managers either didn't really know much about defending (AVB and RDM) or couldn't be bothered to developed him (Jose and Carlo, both reverted to the "safe" options after a bad couple of games). Imagine Sarri getting his hands on the 23 year old David Luiz that arrived from Benfica? My word that could have been quite something.
  20. 24. Gary Cahill

    Im a massive fan of AC but that Barca goal clearly affected him, he was second guessing himself all the time and our defense went from being much more solid with him in it to even more shaky with him in it, i hope and think he will mentally recover but it affected him badly no question.
  21. West Ham 0-0 Chelsea

    The only thing that worries me is the preparation time. From a pure footballing perspective this is our most suitable away game of the season now we are part of the attacking football crew, a large pitch against a vastly inferior side who can't defend is a dream, look at Liverpool and City's results in that stadium for evidence.
  22. 24. Gary Cahill

    Last year he stood up well at the back end of the last season when AC lost the plot and helped us to a solid end to the season (too late for top 4 but still) and helped us win the FA Cup. Im far from a Cahill fan boy, infact if i had it my way he would have never been more than a squad player, but he did well last year after winning his place back.
  23. 10. Eden Hazard

    Sorry to piss on the fireworks but i swear he scored in THAT 5-3 at White Hart Lane. Still an excellent record nevertheless.
  24. 10. Eden Hazard

    He earcupped the Kop after scoring at Anfield a couple of season's back.
  25. Kostas Manolas

    Rumour has it we are looking at a double swoop for him and Naingolan. Not a big source but I ain't creating this thread purely because of the rumour, what I want to ask to the avid viewersof Italian football is how good is he? And would he be good enough to be our main defender next season?
