  1. The Conte Thread

    Outdated tactics? He is the best manager in the prem. He broke records and almost broke the record for most points in a season with the team we had last season... Is there anyone on here that can actually look at our team last season and think they are capable of that? He needs to be given the players he requires. The fact he made it work last season was amazing, and deserves far more credit than he gets. He actually had pundits talking about players like Alonso and Cahill being some of the best in their positions in the league... lol. I really don't see what the hold up is in getting the players we need. Invest in a solid left wingback (Sandro), and two wingers such as Lemar and Martins, and we've fixed a large majority of the issues we have. Throw in a decent ball playing mid, and it really starts to get easier. Splash out a little now, and save for the future. These are all young and bright talents who are already good enough to win now.
  2. West Ham 1-0 Chelsea

    West Ham played so dirty. One of the most boring games of football I've ever watched. Hope they get relegated. Our fault though. Go down to a small side, and they sat back and played with 10 defenders. Don't think I've ever seen a striker man mark an opposition player. Today I did.
  3. Liverpool 1-1 Chelsea

    Why does everyone keep saying top 3 or 4 for us? We are clearly better than United. Maybe not in terms of personnel but we certainly play better than them. We will finish 2nd or 3rd. We have a better team than Liverpool but different styles make these games. If we are going to be fair Liverpool were outplaying City too before the red card. I thought we created far more real chances than they did. We clearly need some dynamic players in the squad though. Multi purpose players who can play several roles. At the very least some pacey players with decent strength. Like Sane on City. He isn't some great player but he is put in a position to succeed constantly. Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  4. 22. Willian

    Go for Martial. If they were willing to get Perisic and think about giving him up then surely the same for Willian might be considered. Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  5. Marco Verratti

    I never rated him, and I still don't. Can anyone explain to me what it is about his game that people like? He just isn't dynamic enough to be a difference maker on the pitch. Much like Cesc now. Not strong enough, or quick enough, but extremely skilled.
  6. Lucas Moura

    Pep turned Sterling into a good player. Lucas is extremely talented. He is still only 25 years old...
  7. General Transfer Talk

    Milinkovic-Savic, Martins, some new wing backs, and someone up to to partner with Morata would be great over the next summer and winter transfer combined.
  8. 7. N'Golo Kante

    His passing is so underrated. I've never understood those complaining about his distribution. The man is such a quick decision maker, and not to mention does everything he can to get the ball moving forward. His short passing game is top notch. World class in fact. His long passing could use work, but then again, he isn't there to be the playmaker from deep. Truly an all time great talent.
  9. 30. David Luiz

    Saw more of Luiz on the game broadcast last night than I did Lukaku.
  10. 9. Álvaro Morata

    I thought his dribbling was great actually. He obviously botched 1 or 2 chances due to the ball getting caught under his feet, but it happens. There was a moment closer to the end of the game where he controlled the ball down from a lofted ball to him, turned and beat Smalling for pace. What an improved performance. I actually enjoyed watching his hold up today, mainly because he didn't go down on the slightest bit of contact from behind. If he keeps that up, he will be unstoppable. He is extremely strong in holding the ball up once he has it under control. It is just that initial part where he gets the ball that has been the issue. Was much better last night.
  11. 4. Cesc Fàbregas

    He played a lot better last night, but I still feel we need someone more dynamic in that role. Someone quicker, stronger, and who has the ability to take his man on. Willian has been absolutely useless on the wing, and I don't think his passing is quite good enough, but he has always done better in that central role for me. Maybe give him a shot at playing that more advanced role like Cesc plays.
  12. Bertrand Traoré

    He has been extremely consistent for them. Like someone said, not some world class talent, but always involved, always solid, always contributing.
  13. Chelsea 1-0 Man Utd

    I thought Cahill has done okay given we know his limitations. But Alonso has been so wasteful... Morata has been brilliant. Even without scoring, one of his best performances so far. Completely dominating the game, and playing some beautiful football. Keep it up and put some in the second half. Christensen and Baka should have scored. Baka has been great for me. Still needs to work on his game management, but he is everywhere, and looks so much more free with Kante next to him. He has been a handful for United, and is making some great runs.
  14. The Conte Thread

    How our board cannot assess a situation that keeps repeating itself tells me that it is being run by idiots. Point blank. No other way to put it. Some self assessment would be more than welcome. Conte in my opinion is the best, and closest thing we've had to overhauling our style of play, and getting us closest to that "beautiful football" that Roman wants. Now the issue is Roman and his board not willing to spend, or spend correctly and give the man who can makes his dream come true, the tools to work with. It is extremely difficult to support this club at times. I can't not support, and I can't not watch, but why should I if the club keeps betraying us as fans over and over?
  15. The English Football Thread

    This is the best team to ever play in the premier league. Our lot clearly don't have the ambition City does. Frustrating to say the least. We did it first, and they took our model and did it better. Sure they haven't achieved what we have (yet?), but we have never played the level of football they are producing at the moment, and this consistently as well. Like someone said above, they have a team to be envious about. First time for me too. I see players like Sane, Jesus, etc... Even their squad players are dynamic, multi faceted players. Delph is an athlete that can play multiple positions. Same with Danilo. Then the fact guys like B. Silva and Gundogan are on the bench not even being a major involvement so far... Ridiculous. It is an athletic game today. Get the quick, strong, pacey players. We need Gelson Martins. We need VVD. We need Sandro. Nainggolan. Sanchez. Alonso, Cesc, Cahill, Willian won't win you the title. Not when you have to compete with a team that spent 300 mil, and 200 mil more than you. Not when you are in the Champions League as well. And these guys are going to get Sanchez in January, and widen the gap some more. Then next season they'll spend more than us again.
