  1. 18. Olivier Giroud

    Don't see how the move makes sense. He will be a backup there also. He may start more than here, but their main 2 strikers are Lukaku and Lautaro Martinez.
  2. Chelsea's Transfer Targets

    Zaha was Arsenal's first choice. Lille allowed Arsenal to structure the deal in instalments which Palace did not allow.
  3. Chelsea v Bournemouth

    Well, I am pretty sure if he was referring to Bournemouth he would have done 0-3
  4. Chelsea v Bournemouth

    Ake is injured. Hearing he could be out for around 2 months too. This game, I would go with Kova and Jorginho for this game and defo play Mount. Think like someone said above, this game is suited for Mount.
  5. Chelsea - Lille

    Relief. Lamps and the team got complacent for sure. Thought he took off Pulisic way too early tbh. He was our best offensive outlet and was terrorizing them. We took him off just past the 60th minute. Should have waited for a third. We got sloppy towards the ends but Rudiger and Zouma looked quite solid until the final stages of the game. Look, whoever we play in the knockouts we will be up against. There are too many world class teams in the team finishing top of their groups. But that is what the CL is about. I did not want us dropping down to the Europa League. Challenge ourselves against the best. Wow, this team gives me scares sometimes. Made that a lot harder than it should have been, especially against a weakened team. Thanks God, they did not turn to Oshimen and Ikone. Bring on the next round!
  6. Everton 3-1 Chelsea

    It is honestly pathetic. When Mount started of the season, people were raving ahead of him. A dip in form and people are stating he is not good enough. Tomori will have a few bad games and suddenly he is not good enough. James makes couple defensive errors and he is now not good enough... seriously. Like Jason said, defeats bring the worst out of people. People were suggesting Pulisic should go out on loan before he picked up form...
  7. Everton 3-1 Chelsea

    LOL. Comments like this are embarrassing. Did people expect our youngsters to perform consistently? Some of our fans are ridiculous. Mount is a top prospect. James is too. A couple shifty defensive performances is not going to change that. He will be brilliant. Mount is starting regularly for a team who have been in top 4 and is 20 years of age. Compare that to being above teams such as Arsenal and Spurs who have more experienced players.
  8. Everton 3-1 Chelsea

    Lamps made poor selections again. Christensen over Tomori was confusing. Christensen was awful today. Richarlison and DCL won every tussle against him. People are criticizing Zouma but he has been one of the better players over the past few weeks. I also thought Christensen was the much worse out the pairing today. And seriously Lamps, starting James I agree but Azpi is not a good defensive LB anymore. If you are going to do play James, just start Emerson at LB. I have no idea why Emerson did not come on for Azpi in the second half also. Kovacic got caught being too arrogant on the ball sometimes, but again was our best player. Wow those midweek games really helped us with the results swinging our way. Another learning curve.
  9. Everton 3-1 Chelsea

    Everton look really defensively suspect in this game. I don't just mean defensively, I mean in midfield. Sigurddson and Schneiderlin are slow and the pace we have going forward, their legs will struggle to contain us going forward. Kovacic will be key in making those runs with the ball and dragging those two out of position and hopefully are attacking trio and Abraham do the damage.
  10. The English Football Thread

    Few years ago I remember when Bellerin was talked about being the best RB in the league and Barca were interested in him and the thought was Barca would eventually get him. Whether it is down to injuries or his obsession into fashion, he is plain average. Defensively awful and physically weak. Struggles defensively against any winger with pace/power. Just a pace merchant and even know his pace has declined too.
  11. Chelsea 2-1 Aston Villa

    Wouldn't say dropped. Just rotation and needs a rest probably. Will be back in for Everton I am sure. Tomori probably too.
  12. Nicolas Pepe

    Whereas Pulisic started off badly, he has come off his own. Scoring 6 goals and a few assists too. Pepe has three goals but all from set pieces or a penalty kick. None from open player which is poor. When he started against Liverpool, he looked so dangerous and you were thinking once he settles in, he will be a big asset for them. The fact that they have had 2 games now, where they could have used him and left him as an unsued sub, shows the low level of confidence they have in him right now.
  13. The English Football Thread

    So relieved Arsenal did not win. As poor as Arsenal have been, quite crazy to think they would have only been 5 points behind us if they had won. Big chance blown for them.
  14. Chelsea 0-1 West Ham

    I don't think he would have extended anyway. He would have wanted to return to Juve where Sarri is and he also starts majority of games too.
