  1. The English Football Thread

    The outrage is over the top. I like and respect Ranieri but after 25 games they're 17th in the league 1 point off relegation. Leicester had to do something.
  2. 10. Eden Hazard

    Look if you wanna criticize him for the poor passes then fair enough but blaming him for "not touching the ball for long periods of the game" is a bit ridiculous considering how awful we were on the ball. I mean that first half. I lost count of the amount of times we just hoofed the ball forward without any purpose. I really wish people would stop looking at individual performances in isolation. Team performance effects individual performance and vice versa. If the team is playing shit on a stick football then that is going to have a negative effect on your 5ft 8 ball carrying attacking player. About the off the ball movement. Hazard and Costa were making plenty of runs, problem was that the passes they got were a lot of the time aimless, poor and coming from way too far making it easy to defend against.
  3. Wolves 0-2 Chelsea

    Team to face Wolves: Begovic; Zouma, Terry (c), Ake; Moses, Chalobah, Fabregas, Pedro; Willian, Diego Costa, Hazard. #WOLvCHE
  4. Wolves 0-2 Chelsea

    Wouldn't be suprised if Conte goes with a strong lineup. We will have a week before we play our next game after this.
  5. 10. Eden Hazard

    It's bullshit. Watch this highlight vid. http://www.fullmatchesandshows.com/2017/01/31/liverpool-vs-chelsea-highlights/2/ at 8:28 you'll see Conte's actual reaction to the missed penalty and Hazard isn't even on the bench as he's getting treatment inside.
  6. Franck Kessié

    Yeah, this season we're just gonna have to make due with what we've got. Just hope we don't get hit with injuries.
  7. Franck Kessié

    Problem is we need actual starting quality players not squad players. We need to be looking for better players then Moses/Alonso/Pedro/Willian.
  8. 10. Eden Hazard

    I really disagree with the notion that Hazard isn't a consistent player. It's perfectly normal for a player to have "quiet" games in a season. They are human you know. There's not a single player in the world that measures up to the ridiculous definition of consistency some on here have. Even Messi and Ronaldo have quiet games the difference is that they're tremendous goalscorers playing for teams that are so dominant they don't even need them to perform well to dominate the opposition.
  9. 19. Diego Costa

    I think he's gone in the summer. Probably came to an agreement that we'd let him go in the summer as long as he doesn't cause a fuss til then. We're not gonna find anyone as good as him. Best case, we find someone as close to his quality as possible (Morata, Lukaku,...) and use the rest of the money to strenghten other positions. Not much else we can do if he really wants to leave. People saying this is just the media making things up, i doubt it. If it was just the sun or the daily mail i'd say sure but the more reliable newsoutlets are reporting it aswell. Let's face it there's just too much information coming out for it not to be true. Maybe he changes his mind but i wouldn't hold my breath. Just gotta accept it and move on.
  10. Marco Verratti

    2 destroyers is just 1 too many. We need a creative force that can pick up the ball deep and distribute it to the entire team. Problem with what you said is that we'd need that creative forward to drop deep to pick up the ball leaving us with 1 player less in front of the ball, 1 player less to pick out. Not to mention we'd have 2 destroyers who would be close to useless when we have the ball.
  11. 15. Victor Moses

    Ever since teams started adapting better to our system he's been downright average (and i'm being kind) Especially his decision making in the final third is annoying the hell out of me.
  12. Spurs 2-0 Chelsea

    You can add Pedro to that list. Lost count of the amount of times he lost the ball.
  13. Marco Verratti

    That does seem like an extremely high number given the minutes he's played. Maybe they count corner kicks as "crosses" ?
  14. The Conte Thread

    Think a lot of what you said is simply a consequence of teams sitting deep against us now. 1. It's a lot more difficult to dribble in the box when there's 10 players behind the ball. I disagree though that he's stopped trying to dribble into the box. He was cynically fouled twice against Palace otherwise he would have gotten into the box in a good scoring position. 2. Again i think that's just about the numbers teams have put behind the ball.(and the lack of quality on the ball from our back 3 and 2 holding midfielders.) The more players the less space you have to put the ball through. Same with switching play to the wingbacks. There's less space out wide then before so switching play is more difficult as the ball needs to be more accurate to make it. I think that's why our players are taking more touches they feel the pass is to difficult too pull off so they're looking for easy passes. 3. Yeah, i agree Moses is definitely feeling tired. We really need some squad depth in the wingback positions. 4. Disagree we are still pressing it's just that the likes of West Bromwich, Sunderland and Palace don't really care. They're more then happy to kick it long so out pressing is simply less effective against teams that play the long ball. Don't think changing formations is really gonna help. It's the personnel that's the issue. In a 3-5-2 we're still playing with the same back three, Kante and Matic. Personally i'd just stick Fabregas in for Matic and play the same 3-4-3.

    squad depth ?
