  1. Liverpool 2-2 Chelsea

    Unfortunate but biggest thing is we showed a reaction after the Man Utd battering. Actually was really impressed by Zouma tonight. Won everything in the air and looked a lot better. Don't have criticism for any player tonight. Thought Kante and Kovacic in particular was outstanding. Need a win against Leicester.
  2. Liverpool 2-2 Chelsea

    WOW, Kante is literally running the show.
  3. Man Utd 4-0 Chelsea

    Kovacic was better than Jorginho and imo was our best player. Mount looked good too. Don't see how anyone can criticize Kovacic or was I watching a different game.
  4. Man Utd 4-0 Chelsea

    I'd normally be livid, but I will take it as the first game and put it aside. The entire team needs to do more defensively. It is not like we are playing a quality team. We are playing a team who a lot of people are skeptical about too. Their team does not look that good. Losing 4-0 is embarrassing. Defence is defo going to be ripped apart this season. And it shows the same issue we had last season. We will create tons of chances but no one to put it away and then we get punished. Same thing happened today. Both their first two goals were against the run of play. Also, no Hazard to save us this time around.
  5. Man Utd 4-0 Chelsea

    The obvious downside of field players that aren't up to scratch at this level. Abraham shouldn't be starting games until he actually shows something for starters. People mocked Luiz also, but when Rudiger is out the defence is a lot worse with him out and that is why I was concerned to see Luiz go. Sad thing is we have not even been that bad, but Lamps is going to struggle to organize this defence. We are going to be like Arsenal's defence last season.
  6. Man Utd 4-0 Chelsea

    Sign of things to come unfortunately. Went into this season with very low expectations.
  7. Man Utd 4-0 Chelsea

    Pedro and Zouma have been poor. Everyone else I am pretty happy with.
  8. Romelu Lukaku

    They may have clever defenders but the league suits him more. PL requires a lot more work rate and physically demanding. Icardi for instance I think would struggle over here but Serie A suits him due to him just being poacher. He will be exploited in the PL. I think Lukaku will score goals galore there.
  9. The targets for next summer

    Zaha is pretty much set and stone to come here imo come January or the summer.. Did not get move to Arsenal or Everton. Pedro and Willian could both be out the door next season. Zaha is in his prime, English and while is a bit of an enigma, would certainly be a good addition. CHO and Pulisic very young and we still could do with another winger. He is too good for Palace and get the sense he is stalling there. Needs that step up again. The United move came at the wrong time in terms of maturity and Moyes replaced SAF.
  10. David Luiz

    Well I think we are a lot weaker with him gone. He may not be John Terry leadership but he was a good enough leader for me. Dictates the tempo of the match along with Jorginho. Also even in penalty shoot outs etc, he is ever so reliable. May be underestimated, but imo that is more proof of his leadership. When pressure is on he does not hide.
  11. David Luiz

    We kept the most amount of clean sheets in the league after the two best teams. Luiz was in the team for the majority of that. He has errors but he also has games where he is sold and looks the part. Last season included. We kept 16 clean sheets in the league IIRC. Now one of the defensive duo who played in that team, we are giving to the team who finished below us. Why should we be giving him to Arsenal? Suits the way they are trying to play from out the back, and also adds quality that they need. For a team who desperately needed a CB apparently on a limited buget, they have got a really good deal.
  12. David Luiz

    He will defo Improve that Arsenal defence imo. Time will tell, but I think they will finish above both us and United. Luiz strengthens them. He is better than all their current CB and will also help create chances for their attack. Even if he may not be Lamps first choice, he would get a lot of games and under no circumstances, should we be selling him to a PL rival. Not like this was a Mata situation where we got a lot of money at time. Think we will regret this but time will tell.
  13. David Luiz

    But do our other options give you that defensive solidarity?
  14. David Luiz

    He is the only real leader from the back too. I don't see any sense in this at all.
  15. David Luiz

    Rudiger is not back till September. Zouma and Christensen does not look a solid duo. We took this into consideration when originally giving him a contract and money is not an issue here. We have sold Hazard for what could be worth £130m. It is stupid to sell him to a team who are crying out for a CB. There is no sense in the deal. Tomori should not even be considered first team quality right now and should be 4th choice. I don't like to sound pessimistic but I think the frailties will show during the season.
