  1. Callum Wilson

    Swap him for Willian, Morata and Alonso?
  2. 30. David Luiz

    Potentially silly question, but is this completed, or attempted, through-balls?
  3. 2. Antonio Rudiger

    This bloke is an utter tank. Build the defence around him and Kepa!
  4. 3. Marcos Alonso

    To be fair, the bloke looks fucking knackered. A rest surely wouldn't hurt him.
  5. 20. Callum Hudson-Odoi

    Me too. Callum is immensely talented, but it seems like he is believing his own hype and is looking at the likes of Sancho at Dortmund and thinking he should be getting more opportunities. If I'm honest, I would like to see him work for his opportunities here, if he is the big Chelsea fan that he says he is. Is there a sense of self-entitlement here, perhaps?
  6. 10. Eden Hazard

    My concern is whether his head has been turned by Madrid, and I honestly think him being played as a false 9 is further disillusioning him! He's actually done nothing for us, bar yesterday's assist, since the Watford game.
  7. Thibaut Courtois

    Agreed. In the "top half" of his goal, he is the best shot-stopper on the planet, in my opinion. In the "bottom half", he is a big-nosed Hilario impersonator.
  8. 1. Kepa Arrizabalaga

    With Marcos fucking Alonso playing in front of him, the bloke is a goalkeeping genius
  9. Gonzalo Higuain

    I'd much rather just sacrifice Morata to the gods, keep Giroud, bring back Michy and/or sign someone like Callum Wilson than sign this old fart.
  10. 5. Jorginho

    He was brilliant yesterday, which is why I see this thread is so quiet. At least three excellent defensive blocks/clearances, an assist (technically) for the penalty, and a dominant, box-to-box showing. Let's not forget he is still in his first season here. He will never be a world class midfielder, but he is very, very good and compliments our other midfielders nicely.
  11. 20. Callum Hudson-Odoi

    My old man nailed it yesterday - Callum is just too "safe" when he plays. He's scared of taking risks. I totally understand that - he doesn't want to fuck up - but he is playing in a position that, especially in our system, demands he beats a player 1v1. Did he attempt even a single take-on yesterday? Every single action was a Jorginho-esque sideways pass.
  12. 24. Gary Cahill

    I can see him going back to the Villa, they could do with a washed up, ex-England international now the old one has gone
  13. 10. Eden Hazard

    Super performance from him yesterday, I wish he could show the consistency to play like that more frequently. For me, it isn't about him scoring every game to make him a quality player - it is about consistency across 90 minutes. He was awesome from start to finish yesterday; comfortably his best performance of the season as far as I'm concerned. I do hope Sarri is just playing him as a forward to make a point to the board... "Hey look, my strikers are shit so I'll play Hazard here unless you get me another striker in January". I don't see his long-term future as a CF, however he CAN do a job there away against teams that aren't scared of actually coming out to play football. Against teams that park the bus, it's a total waste of Hazard, IMO. Either way, well played and well done on 100 (well, 101!) goals, Eden. I like to be proved wrong, but to properly convince me he needs to do it in the next game, and the game after that, and so on. Not every game, because I accept he's human, but if he is truly world class then we should be seeing performances of that ilk on a more frequent basis, in my view!!
  14. 10. Eden Hazard

    Let's be honest, though... this chart makes Willian look like one of the best players in world football.
  15. 10. Eden Hazard

    I can't see him "fitting in" at Real - realistically, who will he end up replacing? Isco? He's a player that they could indulge in, but would he seriously improve them when it's the goals of Ronaldo that they're missing? I could see him having less responsibility defensively within their system, though I'm not sure if he'd have the impact that many people think he would. Goals are a part of his repertoire, but he isn't a striker - as our recent games have shown.
