  1. Chelsea Transfer Pub

    Nah, were clearing space for the miraculous return of Drinkwater. This is the chance he's been waiting for. 💪🏼
  2. Declan Rice

    WH journalists I've seen on Twitter make it sound like the club is absolutely adamant that Rice won't leave. Just think we've left it far too late. If we had been tapping him up and negotiating several weeks ago it could've been possible. If RLC follows Barkley out on loan perhaps we'll look elsewhere for another midfielder. Or maybe we bring nobody at all and just hope Billy is ready when he's healthy to play big time minutes.
  3. 16. Edouard Mendy

    I will say, it's refreshing to see a keeper in our net who is bloody massive. Excited to see how he looks when he's totally settled, in sync with the defense, and is used to how opposing teams attack corners and set plays. Should be considerably less nerve wracking for us to watch our keeper now I hope.
  4. Ross Barkley

    Don't think so unless Ruben or Jorginho also leave.
  5. Ross Barkley

    Outta nowhere, wtf?! If he goes out and Ruben doesnt that's pretty fucked up, tbh. As much as we all criticize Ross as not being starting XI quality for us, he was still a really good rotational player. Really good move for him, though. Should unquestionably start every match there.
  6. Spurs - Chelsea

    I gave @prehuman a ~2 week timeout for obsessively whining about Mount. Chill, guys.
  7. Spurs - Chelsea

    Couldn't care less about the League Cup but I am definitely concerned about our play. I know it's early, I know there was no preseason, I know players are getting used to each other, and I know we're still missing a few, but the style of play reminds me a lot of the stale Chelsea sides of recent years. We look like a side of individuals rather than a cohesive unit. And we still play so laboriously. There's no crispness to our play. It's slow and sloppy. Disjointed between the midfield and attack. Even sides with nowhere near our quality like Leeds, Wolves, Leicester etc look more fluid and confident than we do. That's gotta be on the manager. Need to see major improvement in the next couple of matches or the talk has to ratchet up about whether Frank is qualified for a job this big.
  8. Spurs - Chelsea

    Absolutely embarrassing second half effort. We looked completely clueless after bossing the first half. And for the second match in a row one of our fullbacks fucks up on the far post and we concede a terrible goal.
  9. Spurs - Chelsea

    Game played entirely at walking pace which plays right into the hands of our two midfielders but makes this a boring watch.
  10. Spurs - Chelsea

    Maybe if this was an important PL game. Don't think anyone's going to care one way or the other about the damned Carabao Cup. I just want to finally see Werner get in the goals.
  11. Spurs - Chelsea

    Thought for sure Thiago would've played here. Needs as many minutes as he can get to sharpen up. He's not even in the squad. In fact, we have no CB on the bench at all strangely.
  12. Chelsea Transfer Pub

    Skriniar is not a CB for us. Too wild and undisciplined. Brozovic is interesting because he offers similar things to Kante but is better with the ball. But this rumor is dumb because we're already getting rid of a CB since we have too many. No way would we sign another.
  13. Spurs - Chelsea

    Think we'll play a very strong team. Maybe have Giroud up top instead of Tammy and Barkley instead of Mount.
  14. Declan Rice

    The concern about Rice hampering our build-up play would be valid if that's what we were targeting him for. Which it wouldn't be. We wouldn't be asking him to be Fabregas or Luka Modric. We need him to be what prime Matic was for us. Someone with a no nonsense approach who can clean up any sloppiness, win 50-50 balls, make timely tackles, and cover for the defenders. And he's got more going for him than Matic did I think. Much more competent on the ball. We've got Kovacic who is excellent at carrying the ball from deeper and building attacks. Mount can build attacks. Havertz can do it. We don't need a deep lying playmaker, we need a hard bastard. Look how Allan has transformed Everton instantly. That's what Rice would do for us.
  15. The English Football Thread

    He really is an incredible keeper. And not just his shot stopping. His positioning and anticipation is insane.
  16. The English Football Thread

    Liverpool look unreal going forward just as they always do and Mané & Salah weren't even sharp today. They create massive goal scoring chances with ease whenever they want. But you can certainly see where they can be exploited defensively. It's just that nobody is able to punish them regularly enough. Ceballos playing those Fabregas balls over and over and finding joy every time.
  17. The English Football Thread

    I was literally just coming here to type that this is just like Arse's games against Liverpool and City at the end of last season where they've been totally dominated and should be 2-3 nil down but then still fluke their way to the lead. Why does Liverpool keep having these calamitous, bedshitting moments against these cunts...
  18. The English Football Thread

    For the love of god can Liverpool please, PLEASE spank Arsenal here. Don't think I can take the Arteta wankathon if they win again.
  19. The English Football Thread

    Fulham are truly diabolical. What an absolute waste of a PL place.
  20. Declan Rice

    Good money in this case is probably something silly like £70-80m. Which would be stupid unless we subsidize it by selling Jorginho, of course.
  21. Chelsea Transfer Pub

    I think sending Jorginho to Arse is very dangerous. I think he could be very good if they partner him properly in midfield. He's not the pure DM they need, but he could still do a great job for that team. Very idiotic if we let him go there unless we get Rice or someone even better.
  22. The English Football Thread

    City are such a weird team. At their best I think their ceiling is even higher than Liverpool's. But their floor is so much lower. Very rarely, if ever do Klopp's team capitulate and look like school boys. City have done it often over the past year.
  23. The English Football Thread

    I mean, we do have one of the best in Europe at those balls. Sadly, he hasn't been fit yet. Ziyech will be a godsend to Timo. Havertz is excellent at those balls, too. But wow, not often you see City get battered like this. Pep must be going nuclear.
  24. The English Football Thread

    There were a lot of comparisons stylistically between Vardy and Timo Werner. But what makes Vardy so effective and why Timo will find it harder is that teams don't park the bus against Leicester whilst they do against Chelsea. Vardy is able to exploit acres of space to run into and get the ball in the exact situations he loves all the time. Only the big teams will allow us space and as we saw with Liverpool that was Timo's most effective game so far. As we saw against WB yesterday, he's less effective when teams park the double decker. Was still unlucky not to score twice, though.
  25. The English Football Thread

    City were as dominant as a team could be until Leicester scored. Then they collapsed as badly as a team could.
