  1. Arsenal - Chelsea

    Anyone else notice Pedro had blood on his ear, not sure if it came from his ear or if it was just a cut but the collision looked really nasty. Hope it's nothing serious.
  2. Arsenal - Chelsea

  3. The Conte Thread

    He was never a fan mate. Just a city fan being a little bitch.
  4. The Pre-Season Thread

    Jason posted a link from the guardian a couple posts above. We're gonna be playing 2 more friendlies (1 behind closed doors (probably both ?) before we leave for our Asia tour. That would bring our total up to 5 games with the community shield making it 6. Last preseason we played 6 games + 1 game behind closed doors so it's not so different.
  5. Tiemoué Bakayoko

    Who to believe a chief editor of RMC sport with over 200 k followers or a Bakayoko fan and a freelance journalist with a little over 10 k followers, combined.
  6. Antonio Rüdiger

    Let's not forget that Rudiger was Conte's first choice CB target last season. We were reported being extremely close to signing him before he injured himself. We wanted him over Koulibaly and Luiz. Conte really likes him it seems. From what i've seen of him, granted not a lot, he looks like a solid CB with a very good abillity on the ball. Wouldn't suprise me if he displaces Cahill as a starter if given a bit of time to settle. He's already superior on the ball so as long as he can be solid defensively he'd be an upgrade on Cahill. edit: Also on the Manolas -Rudiger comparison i'd say they're very different defenders. Manolas is more of a no-nonsense defender while Rudiger is more of a ball playing CB.
  7. Antonio Rüdiger

    Are you basing that on this game alone ?
  8. Tiemoué Bakayoko

    Well it's kinda understandable though. The dailymail jumps on any news they can find causing them to get a lot wrong aswell. BBC and SS are a bit more cautious when it comes to transfer news. So it makes sense that people consider the BBC and SS more reliable.
  9. Alex Sandro

    Ever stopped to think that maybe we're penny pinching for a reason ? Like say because we don't have a blanc cheque anymore from Abramovich to do what we want. It's pretty obvious these last couple of years he hasn't been injecting loads of money into the club anymore (apart from the 500 mill stadium ofcourse ). We're working with a different budget (the money that the club actuammy has and not Roman Abramovich his money) then before so we need to be more careful how we spend our money. This transferwindow we have a significant warchest with the raised tv money and the players we've sold but the players we're after will be expensive in this market and we need around 4-6 players.
  10. 24. Gary Cahill

    I don't see how it's bullshit ? I would feel a lot less comfortable if we switched to a back four and had Cahill and Luiz as our 2 cb's. Cahill is too passive and Luiz can be too agressive at times for a back four. Ofcourse it wasn't THE reason but i'm sure it was one of them along with like you said to cover the flanks and allow freedom for our attackers. We also didn't have a proper left back as Alonso was poor there so we switched to allow him to play in a more natural position. Then there's also Kante who in the 4-3-3 was way too restricted. The 3-4-3 allowed him a lot more freedom to chase and press.
  11. Tiemoué Bakayoko

    Nzonzi is a better passer then Meite other then than that it does seem like a good comparison. Meite is a good passer but not a great one + he also has a tendecy to be a bit sloppy at times with his passing(a sorta casualness about him at times). I agree that Bakayoko is better defensively but Meite is better on the ball and more skillful.
  12. Alex Sandro

    Repubblica was first by some margin (1 june). The Marotta quote only surfaced a couple of days ago. So either they were incredibly lucky or they've got actual sources.
  13. Tiemoué Bakayoko

    Bakayoko. Meite's a strong runner with the ball and very strong and athletic. Very similar profile to Bakayoko.
  14. Alex Sandro

    “Now the most important thing is to give a correct evaluation of our season because for me it was incredible. Every single player performed at 120 or 130 per cent in every game. We didn’t have many injuries. It’s very important to understand this. Our season was incredible because every player worked very hard and next season for sure we must pay great attention to understand we have to improve in terms of numbers and quality. That’s very important and we must be very cold when we analyse the situation and understand this season we did something great. Starting to think that Conte might be looking to move Azpi to the right wing back position and add a cb with more height (or maybe Christensen). Maybe to balance things out. A more offensive LWB but a more defensive RWB. We haven't really been linked with any RWB for some time now.
