  1. Claudio Marchisio

    He would have been a great buy in 2013 or so because he has great defensive qualities paired with a decent technique for a CM, but he has declined a little bit so we should look out for other, preferably younger, players. It would be interesting to know what kind of formation Conte will use if we sign 1-2 new midfielders in the summer, because I think a midfield three consisting of Kante, Fabregas and Nainggolan would be near perfect for example.
  2. Is this the best Chelsea team ever?

    I would say our team under Hiddink in 08/09 was better considering that team also showed its greatness in europe, but otherwise I pretty much agree with you.
  3. 28. César Azpilicueta

    Yes he has never been that great going forward with the ball, but he is still decent enough, especially if you consider his great defensive contributions. His strengths are his good positioning and fore-checking, both attributes that allow us to retain the ball and keep possession when we are under pressure. Cahill on the left side is much worse on the ball and is really struggling to get our game going when he is pressed by the opposition. Then again he gives us height which is really important against the likes of Stoke or WHU for example. That effectively means Luiz has to build up our game from the back which he has done brilliantly so far in my opinion. His long passing is extraordinary for a centre back.
  4. 24. Gary Cahill

    Indeed. He will never go down as a real legend, because he isn't as good as Terry ever was for us for example, but he will be regarded as a cult hero at Stamford Bridge and will always have the respect from our fans.
  5. 24. Gary Cahill

    Absolutely loved his goal celebration.
  6. Bertrand Traoré

    To be honest I never felt he was that good in the first place. For sure he has his qualities like a decent shot, but never ever I was convinced that his all round game is good enough for an european top club. Whenever he played for us on a higher level I thought he lacks a little bit of game intelligence. He hopefully will prove me wrong, but I don't think he is a big talent in comparison to Abraham for example. I think it would be better for his career to look after a new (middle class) club where he can show his real potential instead of getting loaned out by Chelsea year after year.
  7. Chelsea Kits 2016/17

    The rumoured third kit actually looks quite nice because I like the combination of the colours, but I don't like the camouflage on it. Doesn't fit on football kits at all.
  8. Alexis Sanchez

    Agree. We need someone who has more technique on the ball and is better in terms of passing than both Marcos and Victor.
  9. Is this the best Chelsea team ever?

    This team is much better than our 2012-2014 teams and more balanced and experienced than the league title winning squad from 2015. But no way our current team can beat our 2004-2010 crop.
  10. West Ham 1-2 Chelsea

    I just hope we score 2 goals before halftime while conceding none, otherwise we could be in for a long night. Our defenders have to up for it. Great news that Hazard and Cesc start.
  11. The Conte Thread

    Yup. Reminds of May 2015 when Mourinho was the best manager of all time according to some users, even though our team showed clear weaknesses towards the end of that season and Hazard had to carry us for some months. I just hope for Conte we don't repeat the mistakes we made in the summers of 2010 and 2015. In both transfer windows we actually weakened the squad or didn't bother to counter our problems, because we won the league.
  12. West Ham 1-2 Chelsea

    Luiz will have him in his pockets.
  13. The Conte Thread

    I am all for different opinions, but that is just deluded.
  14. 30. David Luiz

    Easily the best CB in the Premier League this season. He really matured as a player and isn't so error prone like 4 years ago where he gave goals away every other game. I never thought he would thrive in a 3 mans defence, but fortunately it seems it's rather the opposite. Love the fact he came back to win the league with us.
  15. Chelsea 3-1 Swansea

    Hope Fabregas starts today, Matic has been underwhelming for some time..
