  1. Emerson Palmieri

    Great talent, but big gamble after his injury. Either we will have top quality fullback or the agony of search for new LB will continue for couple more seasons.
  2. Edin Dzeko

    Everything but fee and his inability to play in CL is perfect about this transfer. But I guess january brings extra 5-10m on table, so its not awful. I was hoping we bring Etoo esque striker and he is exactly that. Experienced, proven, but still quality player. He will be good competition for Morata, and wont hinder Tammy progress.
  3. Alexis Sanchez

    And Rashford as fullback
  4. 22. Willian

    If only he played like this every weekend. He can be fantastic but also has games when he cant make a simple pass...
  5. Edin Dzeko

    Potential 60m for 31yo striker and fullback coming from bad injury recovery doesnt sound too great for me to be honest. Dzeko on his own is wonderful backup striker to have and Ederson has huge potential, but 60m is alot of money even for today standards. Plus we cant use Dzeko in CL where IMO we would need him most.
  6. Ruben Loftus-Cheek

    Bad news keep coming at Chelsea these days.
  7. Edin Dzeko

    Not that I watch many interviews or pressers, but how is that difficult to understand? You watch them for entertainment, not to draw conclusions, facts or find anything particulary useful (in most cases at least). Football is entertainment and people like watching their football stars talk even if it was how to make egg omeletes... In the end its up to individual to watch shitty Rio Ferdinand interviews or actualy find some quality banter like Tubes on Soccer AM. Players might be "stupid" but its never dull to watch videos of Ibra, Eden, Drogba, Cantona...
  8. Thomas Lemar

    No reliable rumours realy, but I think he deserves a topic. Currently he is becoming one of my favourite non chelsea players and at this rate, he will end up as one of top players. He is extremely allround, he can run alot, he tracks back, he can dribble, pass, cross, shot, he even has some goals from freekicks. His technique is incredible, but unlike many he is not jack of all trades, master of none. All of the above, he does absolutely brilliant, and he is only 21 years old. Tbh I realy dont care if United ends up with Griezmann if we can get Lemar. Probably my favourite player in ligue 1 since Eden, and whenever I watch him, he shows that same potential Eden did. Such an intelligent player. Oh, and he played along with Kante back in Caen
  9. Edin Dzeko

    To bad he cant play in CL. He would be very handy.
  10. Andy Carroll

    When we were first linked with Carroll, I was like nooo way, we cant pull this off. But now that he is injured, we actaly stand a chance.
  11. Chelsea 1-1 Norwich

    I only cought extra time and there was moment when Baka was fighting for the ball near corner flag. Eden runs in to help him from one side and instead of Baka closing the other side, he casualy moves toward Eden side and leaves meter of space by the out line which norwich player took advantage of in a second and passed the ball to a teammate. Eden ran from middle of pitch to help, only for Baka to fuck up straight after.b Terrible terrible awarness and thinking. Im begining to doubt he understands the most basics of football. this was school example how to close opponent player by corner flag and Baka left acress of space the moment Eden came by.
  12. 14. Tiemoue Bakayoko

    Wait till he destroys barca midfield
  13. Alexis Sanchez

    Fake...
  14. Alexis Sanchez

    The club made some bad decisions and shown lack of ambition, but we are talking about 350k+ for Sanchez😂😂 He is maybe worth 250k tops, I have no idea where is he pulling that demand😂 Mercenary of the highest order. Dont get me wrong, I would take him in a second, but he just doesnt deserve that pay and Im glad Chelsea isnt involved. I know we fans are desperate right now but come on, he would be taking club for ransom and he is often extremely frustrating to watch. I rather go for Mahrez who is younger, better and all fees combined wouldnt cost any more than Sanchez.
  15. The English Football Thread

    Yes we could play more entertaining indeed. But when you read and hear everywhere how quality is stones and otamendi and fernandinho, and then you see them roasted when they get under pressure, I laugh at city. So much for world class defenders. One gets outmucled by firmino like a doll and the other two agression freaks with zero composure when under pressure. Dont let their attack decive you how poor they actualy are when they are 1v1 or under pressure. Bunch of pretenders. Where is the football when top top teams actualy had quality players like Vieira, Scholes, Ferdinand,... Remember this City will get spanked by either Barca, Bayern, Psg, Juve or even maybe Real althrough they are shit. Beating evertons and and west hams is one thing when they chicken out before the game starts and oppisition makes city players play the most comfortable way. Top teams will press the shit out of them and I look forward for the rape of Otamendi Stones and whoever pep throws because they while being good footballers are average defenders at best.
  16. The English Football Thread

    This is the golden rule of how to beat Pep or similar attacking teams. These squads are fraud, sheep in wolf clothing. Looking marvelous and unbeatable when they have possesion but absolutely clueless under pressure. Reason why Pep is winning is because small teams close down and thats water on mill for Pep players. Teams like liverpool try attack but eventualy gas out. Top top teams destroy Pep teams (since his last barca season to be specific). Yet we and bunch of other quality sides defend whole game. Its literaly giving them the game on plate and hope we somehow score a fluke. Great example was juve vs bayern when juve attacked and bayern under Pep couldnt do shit, but then in the end they decided to park the bus and conceded two goals. This City team is perfect for PL demolition but they will crumble against top sides. I said it last week, Otamendi and Stones are so damn overrated and when they go against top opponents, 1v1 they will get raped. By no meaning City is bad team, they are five times better in attack, but you judge teams when they are under pressure, and city and also Pep today proved they are still the same old chicken team when you press them. I actualy belive city will run PL for a while, get finished in CL once they get someone better and after Pep leaves, the team will be left in big shock like Bayern because no other manager can handle attack like Pep and the defensive fragilities will get exposed. We are not on their level at all, but people saying Pep City is best team in europe should take a look again. Pep has no plan B and Stones, Otamendi, Sterling or Fernandinho under pressure when it realy matters turn into bang average. Otamendi and Fernandinho get rattled so quick, red card is always on the brink when they are losing badly. Liverpool on other hand is playing beautiful beautiful offense, but they have little skill and experience to actualy finish the game on high. If they were more pragmatic at 4:1 it would be easier for them to win comfortably. I think if we added two quality players, we are equal. Most definately they have better attack and movement, but we actualy have defenders who can perform under pressure, we know how to adopt and we are efficient (at least we were 😂). This makes it harder for us in league games, but easier in elimination matches.
  17. The Conte Thread

    I dont blame Conte at all, but for fuck sake ditch the 3:5:2. The main advantage of 3:5:2 is in midfield but we dont have midfielders half good enough to take that advantage. Either go back to 3:4:3 or switch to 4 at the back. Idealy we should buy new RW but its not happening. I wish the board would go all out for Mahrez AND Alexis for 100m combined and play 4:2:3:1 with Mahrez-Eden-Alexis ---------Morata----------- But its never going to happen
  18. General Transfer Talk

    At this point Alexis or Mahrez would be the most obvious transfers ever. Even if they cost alot. Althrough I dont rate either world class, they are miles above anything on our RW and we desperately need goals and creativity.
  19. Chelsea 0-0 Leicester

    Chill, we are just practicing 0:0 for barca at SB. Then we only need 1:1 on camp nou and we are through 😁
  20. 10. Eden Hazard

    Yes he scores more. He also fucks up half of the attacks when he tries to dribble and hold on the ball too much. Hazard almost never loses the ball in the build up, football is a team sport and thats why I value him more. Give Eden world class striker, quality midfielder, fullback, and another attacker who is on similar level and he will elevate the team. He connects the dots and the better players he has around the better outcome team will make. Neymar dwells on the ball too long. Then there is a matter of fair play. Eden usualy holds his ground, Neymar falls for every tiny touch. Some dont value that, some value that more than actualy quality of the player. Both are world class, but Neymar now plays in the league that Eden outgrown at age 21.

  22. The Conte Thread

    With the way some players are underperforming and we didnt get all the targets, we definately cant blame Conte and point out he could do better. For what he has avaliable, he did well. Get him quality players and then we will see if he cant get results from top team, he should be sacked, but right now no way. You can only play to a certain level with current lot. Some games might not be watchable at all, but results wise we cant complain. Last season title and this season when we are apparently "shit" we will probably end second. It would be absolutely idiotic to ditch Conte for not achieving and maximizing the outcome of this squad because I think he did realy well considering what we have. The players seem to get on with him so far and he is real gentleman in public, that definately counts big time. Secondly lets say board does sack Conte, who do we bring? IMO only Sarri would be on my list, others have flaws on either side, Tuchel cant defend, Simeone cant attack. I rather stick with Conte then even if we are not the very best. Next summer, Conte should get two top top players and then we shall see. We have found some stability finaly, hopefuly we dont break everything in the summer.
  23. 10. Eden Hazard

    Not bad eh?
  24. 27. Andreas Christensen

    Next up, sign Lemar/Fekir, LB and extend Tibo and Eden. That would cement us in being competitive for next few seasons at the least.
  25. Alex Telles

    Tbh there were quality CBs on the ball before Pep. Think Terry or Puyol. But the thing is, those two (and some others) were quality on the ball which was extra trait. They were still primarily a fantastic defenders, old school who didnt take any shit and could actualy defend. Sure the days of hooligan CBs who cant make a pass are gone, but Pep type of CB is so uncharacteristic, I have no idea how its getting so much praise. Ball playing CBs of today who want to look good with their feet also poses trait of being absolute average defenders. The fact they are "good" is hidden by the attacking displays. Thats why Pique survived in barca, Ramos in Real. When those two get in 1v1 duel they get raped 9/10 times against any better attacker. Im all for having more ball playing CBs but they should be quality defenders first and foremost. If they can play with their feet, thats just bonus, not priority. The football turning into shit slowly but steadily with this new generation of fancy players. You can hardly get someone talented enough yet with strong character. I understand some wingers were always cocky, but not defenders or even midfielders who should be imposing and respectable figures. Im glad we have Christensen who is actualy good defender, but also fine footballer with his feet. Honestly I dont mind if spanish league plays the way they play. But Pep being hailed for making Stones and Otamendi quality defenders 😂 yes they look strong due to city immense power, but take note, those two will have fails in CL against quality teams. Yes football is evolving and PL has to change, evolve. But not by praising these false top CBs because whole generation of CBs will know how to pass but no clue how to defend. Im sure Pep effect is already in motion, teams picking lesser defenders due to their skill rather picking actualy promising tacklers and readers of the game. Again I dont mind having ball playing CB who can defend, but get away with these false defenders ala Ramos or Pique. So much praise and then you see them barbequed week in week out by any better attacker. Pepe at 34 was twice the defender in Real for example and they got rid of him 😂 And finaly best possible example of all what is wrong with football today is Juve BBC. Every fucking person from coaches to media to fans jerking on Bonucci while Chiellini and Barzagli were 5 times the defenders. But hey Bonucci could make those hollywood passes. Yeah he is real quality in Milan now 😂 Milan is a mess but you know any world class and experienced CB that Bonucci is hailed to be would make that defence miles better. Pepe is doing exactly that in Besiktas team, althrough thats just one simple example. But Bonucci in Milan looks completely lost.
