  1. Lewis Cook

    Erm... Ruben Loftus-Cheek?
  2. Chelsea 1-0 Newcastle

    Dammit. Kidding of course. Or am I? Excellent result. The second half was generally good. Their goalkeeper made some good saves (none of them were as outstanding as people are making it out to be, however...); we hit the bar; missed some golden opportunities and, inexplicably, had a wonder-clearance at the end to deny us the layer of gloss our efforts deserved. However, winning 1-0 feels really, really good - regardless of the opposition, that is two home clean sheets on the bounce and it means we've only conceded three goals in our last five games in all competitions (with one of those three goals being a wonder-volley). The defence is steadily improving, though it hasn't necessarily been the most testing opposition. What I am pleased to see is that, in those five games, we've only conceded ten shots on target in that time. That's a step in the right direction.
  3. Ajax 0-1 Chelsea

  4. 3. Marcos Alonso

    I agree on both points:
  5. 10. Willian

    These threads are really quiet when players are in form, aren't they... he's proving a lot of people (myself included...) wrong with his performances. He isn't anywhere close to being as sensational as some Chelsea fan are making him out to be, but he is, nonetheless, playing some great football and seems to be enjoying the level of leadership entrusted in him by Lampard.
  6. 20. Callum Hudson-Odoi

    Precisely! Hopefully, he is now properly past his injury and can get a run in the team. Only Hazard in 2012/13, when we first signed him, excited me as much as Callum currently does. There is just an air of unpredictable genius about him.
  7. 5. Jorginho

    My regista!
  8. Eden Hazard

    I don't wish him any negativity at all. But watching our style of play this season, whilst he would obviously be a step up on Willian or Pedro right now, I don't think he is missed even half as much as we feared.
  9. 22. Christian Pulisic

    On yesterday's performance, it won't be long before he's replacing Pedro and Willian.
  10. 9. Tammy Abraham

    He didn't score yesterday but I don't think that means he had a bad game. He links the play almost as well as Giroud does, in my honest opinion! Ryan made one superb save 1v1 (you might argue Tammy should have scored, but it was a decent finish and excellent goalkeeping, in truth), but what I liked most was his high pressing, which almost resulted in him stealing a goal from a poor back pass. The thing that surprises me the most about him is that he is quite an intelligent footballer with a good understanding of the game, and he is able to appraise the situation quite well for a young player. He's won me over, as I had expressed doubts about both his goalscoring abilities in the Premier League, and his intelligence to play as a lone striker.
  11. 5. Jorginho

    He's shit, Sarri's son, liability, offers nothing, only passes sideways, bla bla bla. Oh how you have all been converted and have joined the Jorginho Hype Train, I love to see it!
  12. Eden Hazard

    Honest question: are we missing him right now?
  13. Worst Chelsea players in 21st century?

    Until Abraham, I'd have you know Boulahrouz was our best number 9 since Hasselbaink...
  14. Lille 1-2 Chelsea

    A draw here wouldn't have been the worst result, but the defeat to Valencia means this now has to be 3 points.
  15. Chelsea 2-0 Brighton

    I came on here to read analysis of our game versus Brighton, but I seem to have entered a parallel universe where people seem to be discussing Formula 1 instead. Must have clicked on the wrong thread...
