  1. 7. N'Golo Kante

    He was not poor but he was not exactly outstanding. His passes were mainly to the player next to him and there was not many crucial tackles he made. Nothing worrying, just not a game where people need to start raving over him again as he was not exactly special. Pogba and Tolisso were more undermining though, agreed.
  2. 7. N'Golo Kante

    TBH, he was not really that good despite what the stats show. The whole France team were poor and looked laboured.
  3. Anthony Martial

    He does look the real deal however if you threw him in the first team against top opposition, it would be a lot more difficult for him. That is why I say I suggested your getting too ahead of yourself. If you put Martial in an U23 game he would destroy it completely.
  4. Anthony Martial

    I am a huge fan of Calum but you're exaggerating a bit too much by claiming he is better than Martial. Hudson-Odoi has not even started a full senior game yet. He has played glimpses for the first team in cup and league games and the others have been youth and U23 games. Martial is a very talented player who imo needs a new manager to thrive under as I still think he has so much potential to be a top, top player. Despite regressing over past couple seasons, Martial still got into double figures last season and I am sure under a more flair-minded manager, he would excel. Now if your saying you have no interest in signing him because you want the club to develop Calum then I could understand but to state he is better than Martial is way OTT as there is not much base.
  5. 10. Eden Hazard

    More concerning though is that he limped off with a thigh injury. Hopefully it is nothing serious and it is just a little knock and he can be fit for the WC opener.
  6. 70. Callum Hudson-Odoi

    He will wants to have his own ideas however I am sure him choosing Morris as an assistant will mean he will take a lot of ideas from Morris. Especially as he has had so much success with the youth players. A lot fans would want to see Hudson-Odoi with the first team and so would I but if he goes to a Championship team that can develop him well, would not be a bad loan. Mount looks very probably as although he has a brilliant season with Vitesse, I still think he will go out on loan due to the amount of CM we have.
  7. Allison Becker

    Alisson is 25 and tbh 25/26 is young for a keeper as they can play on a lot longer. I guess why he is being hyped up because he is kind of a late bloomer. Not much people knew of him before he joined Roma and tbh even the season before this one finished, I doubt much people knew who he was then too during his first spell at Roma.
  8. 70. Callum Hudson-Odoi

    With Lampard becoming manager at Derby and Jody Morris joining him as assistant manager, this may be a perfect loan opportunity for Hudson-Odoi. Pretty sure Derby will line up 4-3-3 and with Morris managing Hudson-Odoi through his development stages and knowing how good he is, you would think this is a move that should happen and would be a brilliant loan opportunity for Hudson-Odoi too. Maybe Mason Mount too. Lampard's and Morris appointment at Derby should hopefully see some of our exciting talents getting a loan opportunity there.
  9. 24. Gary Cahill

    He has had the disadvantage of playing on the LCB side a lot this season. That is playing on his weaker side and with him not blessed with pace, he will ne naturally more exposed. However when he came into the centre of our back three, you saw how much his performances improved.
  10. 7. N'Golo Kante

    Who says he isn't though?
  11. 28. César Azpilicueta

    7 actually in all competitions. 6 in the league and 1 in the FA Cup. The one for Morata against Southampton
  12. Jeremie Boga

    Boga for me was an exceptional talent when I saw him in the youth teams. He was on another level compared to some of his team mates and opponents. He had skill, close ball control, excellent balance, dribbling. Was just so exciting to watch. He obviously right now is not better than Willian or Pedro but he has potential that if we allowed him to play in the team, he could easily surpass those two. I mean look at Maitland-Niles. He went to Ipswich on loan a couple of seasons ago and did set the world alight. He goes back to Arsenal and they eventually integrate him in the team and he is being talked of as a real talent. FWIW, I thought he was the best player on the pitch when they played United at OT few weeks ago. But he mainly has got to excel because he is playing with top players rather than very average ones like he was playing in the Championship. I am a huge fan of youth football and I don't exaggerate when I say Boga is one of the best players I have seen in the youth set up. Has so much talent. I genuinely believe if he was at Ajax or someone, he would be linked with top clubs. Look at Justin Kluivert. Our U19 played Ajax U19 a few seasons ago in the UYL and Kluivert was a sub and was no way considered at that time better than our players who were playing. Yes, he was a sub for their U19 but he has been trusted to play for Ajax first team and now is linked with the likes of United and Barca. At that time of playing them, Kluivert was no way better than Boga. But one is playing for Chelsea and the other is playing for a team who gives majority of youngsters a chance. I still remain the same view. You will only see the best of Boga if we give him a chance but I highly doubt it which is a shame.
  13. Jeremie Boga

    He is such a talented player, it would be a shame to see him leave. Had he been part of the first team, he would look a much better player. Look when he played for us in the friendlies with top players around him. He gets more time to showcase his talents and thus looks a much better player. When we beat Arsenal 3-0 in pre-season, he was for me the standout player on the pitch. he got his big chance in the beginning of the season against Burnley and Cahill doing that stupid challenge and getting sent off cost him. He was subbed off almost immediately after and never got an appearance for that after and went straight out on loan. Luck totally against him.
  14. Tammy Abraham

    Such a shame Sigurdsson left as had he stayed, I think Abraham would have had a much better loan spell. He probably will go on loan tot he Championship this season I reckon. Will be interesting. Vitesse are in Europa League too, so maybe he may got out on loan there or do the board think he is too good for that level? I am not sure but is an interesting one.
  15. Robert Lewandowski

    Tbh, before he got injured, Aguero has been firmly the no.1 striker for City. Guardiola has given him more of a prominent role compared to the previous season where Jesus was favoured a little bit more. If Aguero does go back to Atletico, it would be for personal reasons rather than football reasons as right now he is the preferred striker at City and is playing for the most exciting team right now who only look like they are getting stronger.
  16. Chelsea 1-0 Man Utd

    Mourinho so bitter in defeat
  17. Next Manager?

    http://www.skysports.com/football/news/11661/11373128/chelsea-may-move-for-spurs-boss-mauricio-pochettino Although it would be brilliant to see the scenes over at WHL, he would be my first choice for sure, if we could lure him away. Top manager but doubt he will come to us unless he is given like double the money.
  18. The Conte Thread

    The scenes this would cause: http://www.skysports.com/football/news/11661/11373128/chelsea-may-move-for-spurs-boss-mauricio-pochettino
  19. Newcastle 3-0 Chelsea

    Football is truly pathetic. This is why I am not bothered if Conte goes or not tbh. Too many games away from home and even at home sometimes, we are playing teams much inferior to us and getting absolutely dominated. Today, then although we beat Swansea 1-0, the performance was just lacklusture. Southampton, we beat 3-2 but got dominated throughout the whole game until the 70th minute. Just dreadful to watch. How can Newcastle have 11 attempts compared to our 0? This is for a team that needs to win today. Does not make sense and Conte is sending these players out on the field and there is no football identity.
  20. 22. Willian

    It would not surprise me though, knowing the board.
  21. Mason Mount

    Scored a hattrick tonight and made an assist for Vitesse in their Europa League playoff match against Ado Den Haag. What a season this lad is having. I think that is double figures for both goals and assists. This is coming from a CM
  22. 2. Antonio Rudiger

    Still has Salah tucked in his back pocket. Kept Salah quiet all game. Matched him physically and pace wise. Fantastic performance
  23. Chelsea 1-0 Liverpool

    This 3-5-2 is so negative. Could Conte not see how poor we were against Swansea? We should be targeting Liverpool's fullbacks by using two wingers. Bloody annoying. No Morata on the bench is concerning too as I don't see Giroud being effective for the whole game.
  24. 14. Tiemoue Bakayoko

    TBH, I think Bernardo and Mbappe have done well, not brilliant. Mbappe is just 3 short of 20 goals for the season which he should do. Bernardo, was never going to walk into City's team because of the amount of attacking quality, but when he has played, he has been useful. Has contributed with goals and assists and is a decent alternative to Sane/Sterling. None of them have been excellent but would not say underwhelming. Mbappe did make a slow start but in recent months has looked really sharp again.
