  1. 17. Mateo Kovacic

    This is a translation that I stole from Reddit (maybe one of our Croatian speaking members can verify?) Between this, and his social media post, he doesn't sound like a loan player Q: As far as we've seen from the stands you can be pleased about the performance, can you tell us a bit more how it looks on the field in a new club, new environment, new league etc...? A: First of all im happy about the win and that's the most important thing, it's good that the team is playing well so it's easy to adapt but i'm still out of rhytm since i've just joined the squad, but im working well and i'm improving and that's what matters. Q:From what we've seen for this 30 minutes, not enough for a clear picture but there will be more opportunities, looks like you have took your chance and you are very useful player otherwise they wouldn't bring you here. A: Well yeah, first of all it was important that after 3 years of inconsistency in playing time in Madrid i've got into a team that wants me and a coach that wants and trust me, that's how Chelsea happened. That's what i really need now, as i said earlier im feeling really good and i want to keep it that way. Q: Seems that your link with Sarri is really good? A: Well yeah, he knows me for a long time, i've watched a lot of his games, he likes to play and that's what matters imo. The squad is phenomenal with many great players that's why it wasn't so hard to adapt quick. Q:Season won't be so easy, but Chelsea always aim for the top. How do you see it from your point of view and what's the difference between Spain and England? A:Well, the tempo is higher, there is more space, but as i said it's not hard to adapt when you are surrounded by great players. I would thank to all fans that support me and i will make sure i payback on the pitch. Q: Mateo good luck and i wish you many successful moments in a new club. A: God bless Edit: Oops, sorry @Jason, I didn't see your post
  2. Chelsea - Arsenal

    There seems to be a narrative in the match analysis that Arsenal need to give Emery time and it's a work in progress, which I totally agree with. But, with no mention that we're in the same boat? We played really well for most of the match but we're still really far away from being the finished article.
  3. 1. Kepa Arrizabalaga

    Don't get me wrong, I know he's not the finished article. I just didn't think his distribution skills have been all that. Better than Courtois? yes. If it doesn't get better, yes, there's a problem. but, it's because that would mean he's hit his peak as a GK at 23.
  4. Chelsea - Arsenal

    Still a long way to go before we're the finished article. But, I was expecting it to be much worse at this point in time. Either we're adapting quicker than expected, or the ceiling is very high.
  5. 1. Kepa Arrizabalaga

    I'm not convinced that his distribution is all that good, TBH.

  7. Chelsea - Arsenal

    If he was quicker, he wouldn't have scored that C'mon. Hold on, huge 3 points. I know it's late, but it feels like we need a 4th.
  8. Chelsea - Arsenal

    More like Big BUNS. Ammitrite?
  9. Chelsea - Arsenal

    Pedro. Though Willian did start well (IMO).
  10. Chelsea - Arsenal

    It's like a video game. They just keep doing the same thing over and over.
  11. Chelsea - Arsenal

    these cut-backs are killing us
  12. Chelsea - Arsenal

    Yup, it feels like we're going to concede at any moment (just like last week). We've come out with great intensity, but we're still a work in progress.
  13. Chelsea - Arsenal

    How many open goals do Arsenal need?
  14. Chelsea - Arsenal

    Morata has his tail up.
  15. Chelsea - Arsenal

    Because we came to play from the kick-off. Too intense for Arsenal so far. The pessimist in me says that we can't keep that up for 90 min, but Arsenal obviously thought this was a friendly.

  17. Chelsea - Arsenal

    What a week of training they must have had. The intensity is electric.
  18. Chelsea - Arsenal

    GET THE FUCK IN!!!!!!!
  19. Chelsea - Arsenal

    I think we'll see 30-45 min from Hazard today. Maybe 20 min Kovacic?
  20. The 'What Song Are You Listening To Now' Thread

    More metal. Was playing this on guitar earlier today.
  21. Sarri But Not Sarri Thread

    He's so crazy. I have to admit, I admire some of it. But, this whole "He didn't dump me, I dumped him. Plus, he's shit in bed anyway" thing is quite pathetic.
  22. Sarri But Not Sarri Thread

    God, ADL won't stop talking:
  23. Chelsea - Arsenal

    Don't let the title fool you. It should just be "Chelsea v. Arsenal preview". Not the Arsenal-centric title that was used.
  24. Chelsea - Arsenal

    That's why I'm thinking a draw. I tend to be fairly cautious, especially when people (not just here) get too optimistic. Conversely, I have optimism when people think we'll lose (re: Spurs this time last season). We're at our best when people write us off.
  25. 10. Eden Hazard

    I'd love it. I just think it's a step too far. IMO.
