  1. Gonzalo Higuain

    Maybe...just maybe, he could bring us back into the title race. Sigh...I keep daydreaming about a Rohirrim like charge from us, towards the end of the season.
  2. General Transfer Talk

    If the club is getting anybody, Higuain or anyone else, I really hope they don't wait all the way till deadline day. Big games are coming thick and fast.
  3. Chelsea - Newcastle

    Watching Alonso attempting a pass in a game: Every. F* ing time.
  4. Sarri But Not Sarri Thread

    Interesting that a shift in our attitude happens always after a meeting with Spurs. Happened with Mourinho too. The poultry has been slowly taking revenge in form or another, ever since we knocked them out of various cup competitions. And agree with your post. Our players slow down when they reach the final third. Dribbling around the box. The problem is when we face a defense like Newcastle in the PL. You can't expect a diminutive winger like Hazard to slug it out against 3 CBs. Same goes for Pedro and Willian. Their best bet is to break out of the lines, like Pedro did for his goal. In the beginning matches we were playing with a recognized striker and it helped. Now both strikers are shot of confidence and Sarri doesn't have faith in either. We need a new CF
  5. Sarri But Not Sarri Thread

    Hey Sarri, if you're reading this, I think Alonso can use some rest. At least a little. Please.
  6. 10. Eden Hazard

    Get a new striker in, quick! Hazard is experiencing shades of last season's suffer-ball playing in the false 9 role.
  7. Gonzalo Higuain

    Nothing to comment about this other than play captain obvious and call it a stop-gap signing. I'll definitely rate this higher than the Alexandre Pato signing from a few years ago. Just hoping it can be a lot better than that. If he isn't going to be putting balls in the back of the net, then he is pretty much useless. We already have Giroud as a target man.
  8. Chelsea 0-0 Southampton

    Yeah can hardly blame Southampton for yesterday's result. Maybe the jackass referee, but not much else.

    This is the full quote from BBC
  10. General Transfer Talk

    Seriously though, we need a goalscorer and a new full back. I hope we're just not going to let sit through this transfer window doing nothing.
  11. Sarri But Not Sarri Thread

    Fewest goals scored in the top 6...SMH at that stat. We were scoring for fun at the start of this season, averaging nearly 2 goals a game. Now its all dried up.
  12. Sarri But Not Sarri Thread

    lol...I hope that's just Sarri's English.. if not...meh...don't know what to make of that. At least that's a headache only for the next season.
  13. Christian Pulisic

    Hahaha...glad I'm not the only one who noticed. His dribbling style does remind me of Hazard,...more like Hazard playing at a slower pace (not even kidding). Young Hazard was just electric. Still, hoping for the best. Hopefully Sarri's football would have taken root by the time he gets here.
  14. General Transfer Talk

    One goalscorer this window...Pls Don't care what position he plays...striker/winger/midfielder... Even a clown whom we can setup to take successful shots at goal.,and does nothing else, would still be welcome
  15. Chelsea 0-0 Southampton

    I'm Sarri man. Aright. That was my cue
  16. Chelsea 0-0 Southampton

    Yeah that's true. And apparently, the entertainment factor comes from the small team sticking it to the big team, even if it means a 0-0. Nothing to do with scoring goals. Anyway, we kept a clean sheet. I'm grateful for that.
  17. Chelsea 0-0 Southampton

    Sounds like we were robbed by the linesman again. I know its like clutching at straws, but when you face a team that just sits and parks the bus, even one chance like that can go a long way. Plus, I hate it when linesman make decisions in favor of the defending team in close call situations. Cowardly approach, for the cowardly style of football favored by majority of the teams in this league today. That's why they won't bring in VAR for things like this.
  18. Sarri But Not Sarri Thread

    Just postulating mate...Lamps alone would suffice. ATM, I'd dream of anything to distract me from what we're seeing on the pitch.
  19. Sarri But Not Sarri Thread

    With my earlier post, I was not advocating for Sarri to bite the dust. Just saying it as I see it. Right now, he seems as much a victim to his 4-3-3 as Conte was to his 3-at-the-back formations. Maybe Laurentiis in all his ramblings had a point after all. Honestly right now just wish I could fast forward to when Lampard/JT get to the dugout.
  20. Sarri But Not Sarri Thread

    Lousy football. No real evidence that it works, unless Hazard or someone else produces a moment of magic. Barring 1 or 2 matches this season, its been the same stuff over and over. Pointless possession with no end product. Same boring line ups with Willian and Kovacic. Nothing bold. More likely to see Zappacosta on the pitch, than Hudson Odoi Unless he gets squad enforcement like Pep got with City, we will have to endure this same shit on a stick football.
  21. Unionjacks photoshopped Chelsea odds n sods

    Not too many words to describe these, UJ. Just, beautiful. The Hazard GIFs are all instant downloads for me.
  22. 10. Eden Hazard

    Honestly don't know the answer to that...but you have to agree that we're screwed 9 times out of 10 whenever that happens, at least based on what we've seen. That's why I made that claim. I pretty much agree with the rest of your post. Also, nice to see you back UJ. Love your new sig.
  23. 10. Eden Hazard

    Can we stop dissing Hazard at least while he's still playing here? IMO, the most important player for us this season. Yes, more than Kante.
  24. 10. Eden Hazard

    Hazard with that defense splitting pass..changed the game around for us. And today the rest of the team was superb. See? It can work EDIT: Just realized the corner for Luiz's header was whipped in by him too. 2 assists, not bad
  25. Chelsea 2-0 Man City

    I think Giroud will start this one for sure. I would prefer Pedro to start, and he still might. RLC might be a surprise entry, or at least a sub. Barkley might also make a cameo. The back 4....I don't even want to talk about it.
