  1. Chelsea v Barcelona

    Yea, they are a completely different team. I was shocked when I watched el clasico. I am not that confident against barca because we are not really in great form right now. Yes winning against wba is great but wba is at the very bottom of epl and hull is simply not at our level. We can definitely lose the game but I will be surprised if we got destroyed. They are simply just not that kind of team anymore.
  2. Chelsea v Barcelona

    I think some people here haven't watched barca play for a while and I watched them against Eibar last week and against Madrid in el classico. They are no longer the old Barcelona team who will boss the game the way City does to team. They don't press up high, they even tend to sit deep. I am talking about against eibar here. They are not a possession based team at all, they looks very weird almost dysfunctional a times. With the ball they can still look pretty good because when you have Messi and Suarez as your front 2 you will always has a chance. Without the ball, suarez and especially Messi barely run at all. They defend with 8 player sitting deep and then launch counter attack.
  3. Chelsea v Barcelona

    They are no longer a possession based team. I am currenty watching them playing against Eibar, Eibar is dominating the possesion.
  4. Chelsea v Barcelona

    Nah they are not the best team in the world. They are a very weird side. They play with 442 without winger but they still have Messi who is arguably the most dangerous player on the planet and Suarez who may not be as clinical as before but his movement and his tenacity is still fantastic. 343 is supposed to be the perfect counter for 442, but they certainly have option to change to 433 with dembele or coutinho
  5. Chelsea v Barcelona

    3 defender is the perfect counter for Barca 442 ish. I think kante will be put on the left mid and make sure messi does not create danger. I have no expectation for this game so It should be a fun game to watch

    Maybe it is simply the fact that they are pretty much set financially by 18. Even the successful college graduates make 100.000 a year by the time they graduate, these footballer make that in a week.
  7. Michy Batshuayi

    Glad for michy but did anybody watch the game? Did his link up play improve? I haven't watched dortmund game for a while but I watched abumeyang play for Arsenal and he is not involve in the build up at all. If dortmund tactics is similar to that, he will thrive.
  8. The Conte Thread

    Poch spend one - two years shedding dead weight, and he hasn't won any thropies with spurs. I have never seen any manager under Roman that last after winning nothing for 3 years.
  9. 18. Olivier Giroud

    He is what Conte want from his cf, hold up the ball and link up with the AMs. He is like the opposite of Michy. A fantastic link up player but horrible finisher.

    He also need to learn to convince players to join us. We lost ox to pool

    Both play under very attacking manager though, I will be surprised if they can looks as good under either Conte/Mou
  13. The Conte Thread

    I'll be surprised if we do much training at all. Our players has played game every 3 day for a while now
  14. 10. Eden Hazard

    125 m and asensio ?? Are you kidding me ? 200 m pound + isco and we'll talk.
  15. The Conte Thread

    The one question I have for Conte when we play without a proper no 9, why do we keep playing as hazard as no 9. I dont likee seeing hazard playing with back to the goal, why not try Pedro over there. Ask him to just keep running the channel to open up space for hazard
