    Yeah its simple, Giroud is good vs PL opposition and Morata vs shite European sides.

    Problem with people who thinks Sarri is at fault that Kante isn't beast like before isn't Sarri. Stop overrating Kante and you will see what he is about.
    Its like saying - let's play old boring football just so Kante could shine. He can't be beast like before if we have 70% of the ball, you know?
    He will be very useful when big boys come to play against us.

    Griezmann on the Wee Baldy Man
    The reporter then asked Griezmann whether he was impressed by the Chelsea star and the attacker explained how good the former Leicester City man was for France, both during the games and even in training sessions.
    “Yes [I was impressed]! One could see [it in] the training sessions. Those who are in his team in small-sided games, they win all the time. Suddenly, everyone wants to be with him…” Griezmann said about Kante.
    “The guy is quiet and shy every day, does not want to interfere. And, on the field, he doesn’t like to lose and gives you everything. This is it.”
    Antoine Griezmann is yet another member of the N’Golo Kante fan club.

    Jim ratcliffe reported saying 
    “I am a season ticket holder at Chelsea,” he said. “Have been for years, although I’m a Manchester United fan really. Or was…. It’s not getting any better [at United]. It's gone from bad to catastrophic. Talk about a glass-half-empty.
    “If you’ve got the six teams competing at the top of the table – this is last season anyway – you’ve got three who are managed by glass-half-full guys, [Jurgen] Klopp, [Pep] Guardiola and [Mauricio] Pochettino. They get their teams up and energised.
    “And then you look at Mourinho. He’s so down. He destroyed Luke Shaw last season. And then you’ve got [Arsene] Wenger who [was] miserable and [Antonio] Conte who was down.”
    “The guy I like is [Diego] Simeone,” he added. “I love him.”

    I'm sorry but that just won't work.
    At left back he often creeps in unnoticed into the area and causes havoc that way, if he played CF he would have specialist CB's tasked with giving him special attention, it's a totally different ball game.

    I doubt it, United will wait till the summer. But by then I think in January they will lose some players.

    Trying to find flaws in our team after one month and a half in charge for Sarri and a couple of official matches. Funny enough for me. I though Tuchel was the closest thing to Guardiola in world football, but the feeling now is that Sarri might just be that one. They (the pundits) I think they know that and after seeing Chelsea at Newcastle they expect us to play the same game as Guardiola, but they forget Sarri has been here for only a few weeks now. Of course defence is going to improve and full backs will split opposition wider, but it takes time. Too soon now to be talking why Azpilicueta does not do this, why Chelsea does not bring the game wider to spread defences etc. etc. etc. I said from the beginning, I expect Sarri's full signature on Chelsea to be clearly seen by the end of November. Everything that Chelsea play right now is just the signs of a superb work in progress and every win is a bonus before we truly kick off the season and go into matches as absolute favourites.

    If someone told me in 2008 that ten years from now Jose Mourinho would be at Man.United and i would be hoping he stays and likely will be as gutted as when he left us the first time if/when he goes, i would have got the person who told me permanently sectioned.
    It's really surreal how far he's dropped.

    I don't know why people keep on talking about Hazard wanting to play under Zidane. His dream has always been to play for Real Madrid and Zidane was just an added bonus when he was there. Did you see Hazard suddenly stop talking about the Madrid move after Zidane left? No. Just because he liked Zidane as a player, doesn't necessarily means he wants to play under him. On top of that, I think Hazard has too much respect for us to be moving to another English side all of a sudden, regardless of what the circumstances might be. It's gonna be either he stays or he goes to Madrid.

    I would rather we keep going at the system till it's perfected even if it means a few growing pains, if we go a bit more pragmatic for short term results it would ruin all the good work Sarri has done so far. We have committed to this direction now so we need to see it through with no comprises.

    You can see just how happy the move to such an amazing club has made T'Boa.
    Hes sitting just grinding his teeth happy at the thought of being so close to his children! And luckily for him he might have the chance to sit there for awhile as Nevas isn't just going to go away!
    Makes you feel all warm and happy for him!

    Apparently hes going to carry on with the rebuild!!
    FFS make yer minds up. He cant be selling the place and rebuild us. Unless of course hes just a really nice chap wanting to do us a favor and that wouldnt keep his money long!
    Sources pointed out that the Sunday Times has claimed that Abramovich rejected an offer for a minority stake from an American private equity firm called Silver Lake Partners.

    Pleased with the result and the general dominance in our play.
    If I could be picky it would be the lack of width at times we seemed to have. I'm a critic of Morata, but he had no space to run in behind today and as a result was fully reliant on his team-mates to create the chances for him which didn't happen. Stretching Newcastle wide should have resulted in more space through the middle and chances to cross the ball in where we all know Morata (and later Giroud) are very strong in the air. We all know how hard it is for a team to continuously play through the middle and break a team down and is why we were always so successful against Barcelona.
    I think that will come though in time. It will require the players to move the ball a bit quicker today as at times the play was slowed down too much which ultimately benefited Newcastle.
    The other observation i had was how deep at times Hazard was coming to receive the ball. He no longer needs to do this, we now have the players in midfield (1) to dominate possession and (2) to find him in areas higher up the pitch. Again, we're talking 3 games into the season and his first start so I expect there will be some adaptation but I would expect over the next few weeks the team to find a way to get more out of Hazard getting on the ball in areas much higher up the pitch. In games like today, which we're likely to face more often as we become more dominant on the ball, having Hazard operating 10 yards higher should help more in breaking these teams down.

    Yedlin elbowed Giroud in the face before he crossed the ball for Newcastle's equalizer and then he ended up scoring an own goal so his team lost after all. Poetic justice at its finest.

    Maybe you have not properly understood the communication from his father. He is French-speaking. Like me. He basically said that he was never contacted by RM for Eden. He is guessing that RM wants to built on talented junior players. He added that Eden will think again in a year about its commitment to Chelsea. But he also strongly hinted that Eden wants to stick with Chelsea.

    Great owner. 
    If he leaves I would hope he gives an interview or something of his time with the club.
