  1. Chelsea 5-0 Huddersfield

    I thought Higuain's movement was fantastic. So nice to see a player actively looking for the ball, and wanting to put in proper shots at the goal. Say what you want, but Morata, and Giroud always half assed it, and that is why you see Giroud take those crazy shots, because he is not willing to put in the work, work his way to a better shot, and live with the consequences. He'd rather pot shot a hail mary attempt, and have everyone okay with it because it was such a hard chance to begin with. His link up play was lacking a bit giving the ball away a few times, but that looked more like becoming accustomed to how each of our players move. He had a few great sequences, then had a few where he completely misplaced the ball. Not a worry for me though. Jorgi... Why is Luiz doing your job? To be fair it must be infuriating playing with Hazard and Willian as your wingers. Neither make direct runs behind the defence when we have the ball in the final third. One of the big reasons we can't create great chances. Fair enough with Hazard because he is great at carrying and breaking down defences. But Willian should be running that line and darting in behind so Jorgi has something to look for. This is why I prefer CHO. He has that directness to his game. He loses the ball a little bit more at the moment (largely due to being selfish and wanting to prove himself), but he runs in behind, looks to get in good positions, and doesn't feel like he needs the ball to work. Willian is beyond frustrating dropping back and picking up the ball, because he isn't great at running at players and getting around them, and it leads to Alonso being out of position half the time if he switches to the left. I was impressed with AC. One small mistake, but I never thought it was a penalty. He kept trying to push the defensive line up, unlike Luiz (who I thought was great, but obviously this is more of a repetition thing with him seeing as the whole team has been doing this). We need to make the line between that midfield and defence smaller. It will help Jorgi out a lot. Our defenders can pick up the ball earlier, shadow it, and allow Jorgi to get back quicker due to the gap being smaller. Though this would require our RB and LB to be any decent at their job. I'd just run Azpi at CB and look for two new fullbacks this summer.
  2. Chelsea 5-0 Huddersfield

    Alonso with a shitty cross as per usual. I'm sure this is somehow Hazard's fault...
  3. Chelsea 5-0 Huddersfield

    They have both been good, but both are playing too deep because Azpi and Alonso have been terrible for me.
  4. Chelsea 5-0 Huddersfield

    So Alonso not being at LB, despite being our left back isn't a problem? Him being the furthest player up the pitch and having Willian chase back is not a problem? Can you explain why we keep getting caught on the counter with no one near the attacking player on that side that Alonso plays?
  5. Chelsea 5-0 Huddersfield

    We clearly don't have a left back. No one is ever there.
  6. Chelsea 5-0 Huddersfield

    Alonso is leaving that left side completely open. Jesus... Jorgi expects the defence to be sitting a little higher. As they should.
  7. Chelsea 5-0 Huddersfield

    I feel as if Luiz does Jorgi's job better than Jorgi does.
  8. Krzysztof Piatek

    Well he is certainly 3 times the player Morata is. So was I wrong for wanting the better option of the two available at the time? Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk
  9. Krzysztof Piatek

    I've learnt to be wary of these "amazing" strikers people go on about. Morata was one I didn't believe was anything special. Was told otherwise on here. Tried hard to support him when he got here. Blatantly obvious I was trying to wish him into a good player. Belotti was another one I wasn't impressed by when he was going off. Told he was fantastic and we should sign him up. Looks like a good thing we didn't. This guy seems more of the same. I know some will say otherwise, but what exactly does he do well? He went on an insane stretch, and seems to be cooling off. Is it more the cost and risk associated that makes most of you think it is worth it? For 40 mil? Sure. I wouldn't be expecting our striker problems to be solved though. He just doesn't look that special. To further throw a spanner in the works, I don't think Icardi is all that special either.
  10. Nicolo Barella

    Never seen this Barella kid prior to the last week, but looks immense. Reminds me a lot of Modric funnily enough. Seems very broad in the positions he would be able to play.
  11. Crystal Palace 0-1 Chelsea

    Giroud out there is like playing with 10 men. Get RLC on as ST.
  12. Christian Pulisic

    Pulisic has 4 as his most. Traore had 5 last year. Like I said, if this is the level we are going for, get Traore. World class dribbler and will beat players for days. People over complicate things. Live wires like him who can dribble and take on people can really open up their game on a better team. Look at Sane. No one rated him prior to him going to City. I remember people on here dreading the thought of him coming when he was linked with us. That turned out well.
  13. Christian Pulisic

    If this is the level of player we are going for, I would rather get Adama Traore. More talented, quicker, and he has at least been improving unlike Pulisic. His end product has been getting better, while Pulisic has been demoted to the bench.
  14. The English Football Thread

    I'm the opposite. Can't stand seeing Pep get all this glory, for like you said, a bought team. He has come in and done nothing a bunch of other managers couldn't with this team. Sorry, but not overly impressed given the praise he gets. For some reason, he continues to get it despite having the most expensive team ever. City's second team is about on par with our first team. Liverpool for as miserable as they are at least have earned their way there. City is a bunch of BS that the media is loving every bit of because that wank Pep is there.
  15. 17. Mateo Kovacic

    Have not been impressed with him. Disappointing really. Doesn't take enough risks, plays far too safe and is scared to shoot and go towards goal. Very tidy with the ball, but only passes sideways or backwards, He is quick enough and talented enough to push forward and give it a go.
