  1. Deadline Day!

    Chelsea chose Barkley over Mahrez. LOLOL
  2. Deadline Day!

    It needs depth! One RWB attained. But another CM and LWB are needed. We're gonna be playing 180 mins a week bro.
  3. Deadline Day!

    Damn @Jypebeat me to it.
  4. Deadline Day!

    Anybody have any updates on this?!
  5. Deadline Day!

    Yes, he is.
  6. Deadline Day!

    Here's some Zappacosta propaganda. Edit: here's his fullback radar.
  7. Deadline Day!

    To achieve what exactly? Because clearly the goal is not to go far in the UCL and Win the PL. Not with this squad.
  8. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain

    It's all popping off now. People showing their true colors.
  9. Ross Barkley

    @Reddish-Blue provided some useful resources, but will try and find more tomorrow. If your not familiar with xG, it's a metric that measures the likelihood that a shot your team has created will go in goal. xG-chain is a measure of how likely a team is to score a goal, when a specific player is involved in a move. AOC's xG chain is high, so whether he's dribbling, delivering the key pass, the "hockey pass", crossing or shooting, there is a greater liklihood that his involvement will lead to a goal. Here's is Data Radar. You can pretty much ignore the template to the right, because he only played 3 games as a CM, and they were against poverty sides. But wingback stats are very promising.
  10. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain

    Wow.... just simply, wow.
  11. Riyad Mahrez

  12. Ross Barkley

    Feel like the only person who doesn't rate Ross Barkley at all. Don't see the hype in him at all. And asking Conte to turn two English projects in Oxlade and Barkley is too much imo. Im my eyes, Chamberlain > Barkley every day of the week. But many advanced stats signal both players do very impressive stuff when on the ball. Oxlade's xG-chain is crazy high. and Barkley complete a high number of difficult passes in the final third. Interesting Stat on Barkley: Apparently Ross Barkley created the most goal-scoring chances of any U23 player across Europe.
  13. Thomas Lemar

    Wow, incredible business being done by liverpool if they can flip the Coutinho money into Keita and Lemar. That's fantastic. So surprised Chelsea have never shown interest in this kid. Has so much talent, and would fit the RF role like a glove. Bizarre.
  14. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain

    The only reason he'd choose Liverpool is because Klopp agrees to play him as a CM. That would be it, imo.
  15. European Competition Thread

    Agreed. I know CM is the holy grail for UCL, but I just hope we get competent Wingbacks that can win their 1v1 duels and deliver accurate crosses. Let's see how the season progresses, and the business that's done in these final 8 days.
  16. European Competition Thread

    Tbf, we already know that this Core group of players are not UCL savy. Only one success against a big-boy UCL team and that was PSG 2014. In '15 & '16 PSG were by far the superior team against us. I think we'll def escape the group. But once the knockout rounds begin, I fear for our midfield/wingbacks.
  17. 14. Tiemoue Bakayoko

  18. Spurs 1-2 Chelsea

    Exactly. I know it's ridiculous to say this, but we're still on a 90pt pace. Lmao Chelsea have evened the board. The way I see it, If Chelsea win against Everton, and the board don't sign any donkeys the season can officially begin for Chelsea after the international break.
  19. 24. Gary Cahill

  20. Spurs 1-2 Chelsea

    Wrong Thread.
  21. Spurs 1-2 Chelsea

    Hold up, we had 2 shots on target to Tottenham's 18, and we STILL had higher xG than them?!?! This just gets better and better
  22. Spurs 1-2 Chelsea

  23. The Conte Thread

    We go again. Our season can begin from this point forward.
  24. 3. Marcos Alonso

    Imagine wanting Alex Sandro? I never doubted you Alson, never.
  25. Spurs 1-2 Chelsea
