    Yeah I dont know. Like mentioned above can see one of Kova, RLC or Ross not being here. Kante and Jorginho will also be 2 or 3 years older and you know what the club are like regarding 30 y/o plus players.
  2. Nicolo Barella

    Mount might not even be considered to be ready next season by Sarri. Going from championship to PL is a huge jump yet alone a top 4 team. Worth considering Abrahams struggles after a season where he scored over 20 goals in Championship. Id like to see Mount get a chance at a PL club next year on loan then go from there.
  3. 10. Eden Hazard

    They whistled Ronaldo too...
  4. Elseid Hysaj

    Ffs. Everytime this is brought up be it at opposition stadiums on banners, Facebook posts, twitter posts, this forum.... whst the fuck has it got to do with football? Again. Nothing.
  5. Elseid Hysaj

    Jesus an inverted full back please no. Alonso may not be the best but going back to right footed left backs would be so fucking stupid. Even stupider than before.
  6. Elseid Hysaj

    We arent buying ANY fullbacks anytime soon until we shift one of what we have at least. And shifting Alonso 🤣? Good luck, why would he get a new deal if so.... club has no intentions of doing so.
  7. Elseid Hysaj

    Exactly but surely Hysaj would have to be first choice RB if we can justify spending 40 to 50m on him? Over priority poairions like CF, RW, CB... Or it would be a unneccessary buy.
  8. Sarri But Not Sarri Thread

    Course Pep would say that, or something that could be a slight dig, arrogant fucker, does he just want teams to bend over for City or something? His arrogance is mental, also his poor sportsmanship is swept under the carpet every time he loses theres something. Theres several effective ways to play football and will be after him too. If it means switching it up, sitting deeper, having less quality on the ball but more off it in the defensive phase... to get a win... Why not? Maybe City would have more chance to win a CL if he wasnt blinded by his own philosophy so much. Sure it works, but comes unstuck against us a lot. Still love when Conte got that Chelsea team, playing a 343 with Moses and Alonso as wingbacks, to absolutely shaft City on the counter, at the Etihad.
  9. Elseid Hysaj

    50m on a RB. When we have 2. Unless one of Azpi/Zappa leave no point. Selling Azpi would be a mistake too before anybody suggests it.... Zappacosta meh fair enough but 50m for somebody who drops Azpi and weakens us defensively or sits on the bench when other areas are lacking... not best business plan.
  10. 30. David Luiz

    The club made their stance clear when they sacked Conte tbf and if that wasnt clear then I dont know. There would have been more outrage if Conte remained than there is that Willian is still here 100% and its not even worth debating. Cant have it both ways. This Willian is a troublemaker bullshit is just stupid. Luiz isnt either. Likes of Cesc, Costa, Hazard etc weren't when Jose got sacked. Its just desperation from fans to justify some other shit. Weve all been guilty of talking shit in the heat of the moment maybe but to use something from 6 or 7 months ago as a reason to ditch a player, who has never done anything like that before, is typical RAWK meltdown material. If Willy forced the move to Barca maybe it would of been different but he didnt, which shows more about him than some instagram post. One of the world's super clubs, with the best player in history there, playing CL, wanted him and he sidnt do anything to force it. 65m would of been a excellent deal for us yes but it didnt happen and i think some people are more mad about that more than anything to do with performances, which is wrong. Sorry for numbers and mistakes in some of these posts, fucking fiddly samsung phone and big hands = pain in arse to type.
  11. 29. Álvaro Morata

    Giroud has had a huge rise, like Kante, even guys like Koscielny at Arsenal.. having worked incredibly hard to get to the level he is now coming from lower divisions and being known as a late bloomer perhaps. It shows in how he plays and you can tell with his workrate. Morata came through Real Madrids academy, different set up, everything done for him.. fair enough making it is hard at Real and even what he did at Jucentus but the mindset of those guys, who fought ridiculously hard to improve, to jump up the leagues/levels and show they belong there, its some uprising and maybe a defining characteristic that helps them in some way or at least makes them unders5and id they arent playing well or scoring they still nees to work hard. That sort of mentality is a massive underrated quality that a lot of guys from some of the huge academy's maybe dont have because everything's on a plate. I think its something Drogba had, he didnt turn pro to later, improved, grew into a good player and then got to go to the big stages and once he got there well how many better big game players were there in the PL at that time? He had a winning mentality too. Fair enough theres other circumstances but it shows hard work and mentality is so vital to footballers. Giroud and Kante at the start of their careers would have laughed if you said theyd be World Cup winners. Koscielny would have laughed if you said he would wear tbe captains armband at a big club in the PL and for France one day.
  12. 30. David Luiz

    Of course a player is going to want to play, even if they are playing shit lol. If not why would they get up in the morning to be a pro footballer. And rebelling....? So was it the same with Luiz when Conte benched him? Or Eden when he was half arsing it? Fair enough we all know Conte fell out with these guys but Luiz wasnt accused of rebelling or neither was Eden. Its just a false narrative being thrown at somebody. Rebelling is not showing up to training, doing the opposite of what your told/asked to do, being disrespectful towards coach/team mates (David Luiz openely questioned Conte's tactics after the Roma game, Eden also made comments IIRC), being late etc. Courtois rebelled in the summer. Nobody else has in a good while here. I get many people want to see Willian out but its not exactly as if hes dressing room posion which many make out to try and paint him in a bad image 🤣🤣 Fair enough performances could be a lot better yes but jesus christ some of the shit people are saying regarding a lot of players the last few seasons really is pathetic. Conte caused a lot of friction in the group and with the hierarchy too. Shit happens. One difficult season doesnt define Willian as trouble in the dressing room or Conte as a bad manager. I agree he could be improved upon tenfold. Like many here. But lets not talk shite. Another guy, like Alonso, like Cahill, like Cesc who have done decent enough but are being accused of being this or that to fuel the fire. Football yes Willian is average and has veen for a while. Characterwise, one bad decision which would be an issue if Conte was still in charge and if it had a real bearing on the club/squad as a whole but it doesnt and didnt. Youd think he was Balotelli or Tevez under Mancini at City reading this thread at times, doinf stupid shit, arguing, going AWOL etc 😂
  13. 30. David Luiz

    Not sure where this Willian is a twat/posionus character shite comes from. He was wrong regarding the whole Conte instagram post with the trophy emoji thing and maybe a bit surprising that he said if he stayed hed have left but people make mistakes and he isnt the first or wont be the last. I genuinely dont get the whole selfish stubborn thing. Has anybody any prood other than a stupid instagram post and a quote from the Brazilian ESPN... Swear people are just painting this narrative because they dont like him because hes not world class... seen it a lot the last year or two on here from some members and have never understood why people have said it. He had the chance to try force a move to Barcelona this summer and didnt, for me, that tells you more about his character than anything else. Look at Ousmane Dembele before he went to Barca for example... forced it by not showing up at Dortmunds pre season training.... If Luiz can play good consistently give him a new deal. If not, fair enough.
  14. 10. Eden Hazard

    In the words of Jack Bauer "damn it". Wish he would stop ralking about his future, pls zip it starting to annoy me more than Lukaku did when he used to talk shite the whole time.
  15. Layvin Kurzawa

    Not enitrely sure they would sell him for that though. They under investigation with FFP so players will cost a premium. Didnt realise he cost 23m euro though thought it was 35m or so.
  16. Layvin Kurzawa

    They bought him for a lot so will sell for the same. They want Alex Sandro.
  17. 15. Victor Moses

    If Zappacosta were to leave in say January or wanted out in the summer, could we use Moses as a bargaining chip to see about getting Wan-Bissaka? He has really caught my eye this season. Looks like he could be a good player in a bigger team.
  18. 28. César Azpilicueta

    Wasnt 100% this season? Based on what? The guys been defensively solid enough all season, what match has he really struggled in? And the game against City only back to his reliable self? That was easily one of the best performances hes put in while being here, he played better than "reliable", he won 9 out of 13 tackles, however many cruical blocks and interceptions... he played out of his skin I thought. Hes always a 7/10 guy, always very very solid, leads by example, always puts a lot of effort in but that City game was easily a 9/10 and potential MOTM, which went to another defender, David Luiz. How many other full backs can say they have had a performance that good against Man City who have Leroy Sane at LW? Second point I fully agree.
  19. 28. César Azpilicueta

    The same things happened before to other players, guys like Mikel, Ivanovic (fair enough he was shite towards the end but Mourinho not dropping him wasnt his fault), even Cahill when Conte shifted him to LCB 2 seasons ago and now it would seem Cesc too. They did/do good jobs, have/had been consistent for years but new managers and flashy or up and coming players in their positions made fans render them obscolete too early. Cahill now like Mikel and Ivanovic did, has to move on and perhaps Cesc too but they were underappreciated well before their sell by dates and it would seem some believe Azpi is in that basket. Azpi is a better player than Hysaj, who for me is definitely better going forward than at defending. Working with Sarri in the past doesnt mean it will necessarily be a smooth transition, we've seen Jorginho had a great start but now hes having issues in certain matches. There not all his but we cant just pin our hopes on dumping half our team and signing half of Napoli. Which i feel a lot of fans seem to think we can do. There is almost an arrogance now that people think we just need to be able to attack from all areas of the pitch, our success since the early 2000s has always been built on solid foundations and it seems as if people are turning there nose up at it and appreciating style over silverwear. Fair enough as a football fan you want to appreciate style but I would rather see my team be a success than play nice football and win nothing. Obviously there is an inbetween both, winning with a style like Pep but its hard to do.
  20. 29. Álvaro Morata

    If reports are true, the clubs looking to sell him in January. Haller and Jovic are good players but not sure if we will go for them. We will have to see. Also no chance we sign Martial to play CF... should look to sign him though, hed be an excellent addition and give us more quality in wide areas (think hes definitely an inside forward from the wing as opposed to playing through the middle). Morata if he does go, has been a big disappointment, for a player of his skillset and where he has played, what he has won, I am extremely disappointed that he hasnt managed to maintain the start he had and even after some good performances this season... he seems to struggle and go back to being poor. He has got the right attributes to be a top player but his mindset, its a big issue and affects his performances too much.
  21. Videoton 2-2 Chelsea

    Ampadu in for Cahill would be nice. Dont think the team will be too dissimilar to that.
  22. Chelsea 2-0 Man City

    Honestly I think second half everybody in defence stepped it up and its unfair to just single out Alonso, despite how poor he has been recently (and that there are a lot better options out there) and when you consider how we played higher up in the second half, he was more involved offensively and it helps him because hes not being isolated defensively, not only him City were trying to isolate both fullbacks and pressing with a great intensity. In all fairness Mahrez and Sterling arent exactly easy to play against either, in a team where the quality from midfield is excellent and watching only highlights or using highlights from a 90 minites game is lazy, ofcourse they're going to show Sterling beating Alonso with ease because it led to a chance..... Mahrez destroyed Azplicieuta a few seasons ago and Azpi has been regarded as the best 1 v 1 defender in England for seasons now, Alonso faired better today with those guys in the second half than Azpi did in that match for me. Mahrez also gave many full backs a tough game that season and will continue to do so, as will Sterling who is probably the most inform player in England and has been for arguably the last 8 or 9 weeks consistenly deciding games for City too, hence why hes been involved in more goals than anybody in the PL this season. Sane on the other side too, a top top player, Azpi really kept him in check (thought his whole match was brilliant) and when he didnt we managed to do fine.
  23. 28. César Azpilicueta

    Walker would of beem found out defensively yesterday though. He would of been good as a right wing back in a 343 and with Azpi on that right side center back role it would have been a good combination but as a right back he can be got at and leaves a lot of space. There are some games, like yesterday, where you have moments where your under pressure/exposed/struggling to get out (and this can be against any team of any quality) and for that reason I'd rather Azpilicueta over Walker every day of the week. Benjamin Pavard really looked the business at right back for France in the summer as well, a competitor defensively, tactically aware and can deliver in forward areas too although playing as a CB for Stuttgart, where hes been consistent for a long time and when they came back up didnt look out of his depth at all. Hes another guy I would rather over Walker and see a big future for him on the right side. Also while I've mentioned Stuttgart, there is a big future for Argentine Santiago Ascacibar if he can become a bit more disciplined in his role.
  24. 30. David Luiz

    He has had a lot of critics in the last few weeks, myself included as I've been critical of him (critical throughout his full spell at Chelsea), well his performance yesterday was brilliant from a defensive point of view I felt. That pass for Pedro and the goal was a bonus for a excellent second half performance after a bad first half from the team and in particular the defence. He just needs that consistency and to focus, he has got to deliver a defensive performance like that in all the games, some of the smaller teams will only have 2 or 3 big offensive plays per game fair enough but he needs to be more focused even if we have 70% of the ball.
  25. Sterling should be praised to the heavens for that post 100%. Hes hit the nail on the head regarding the media. Love him or hate him, England's best and argubaly biggest player standing up and voicing his concern regarding a huge issue such as bias against black footballers in the press is exactly whats needed. It is disgraceful that another Chelsea fan has been involved in a racist incident as well, it paints the club in a bad image although the clubs not the most important thing here, the fact is that it is wrong for any sportsman/sportswoman to be abused because their skin colour is different than somebody elses and this has to change. I hope that the club and the police do the right thing. Also regarding the media I think its a joke the way theyve scrutinized Sterling since he broke onto the scene with Liverpool. The guys just a regular bloke, fair enough because of his profession, where the moneys crazy gets paid millions per year, they tend to forget that hes just a person. English press should be positive with a guy like Sterling, he is great (Id say most inform player in the PL at current and undoubtly Englands best player) and is potentiality a player that could be decisive for the future of the England football national team. Do you think Argentinian, Portuguese, Belgian or Brazilian media scrutinize their crown jewels (Messi, Ronaldo, Hazard or Neymar) on a regular basis over nothing? Absolutely not. There is 100% a race issue with various sectors of the media in England. Sterling can be the equivilent of those players for England, maybe not that exact level but he could be that iconic player for this current generation of English players.
