  1. 3. Marcos Alonso

    Completely agree. I'd argue that Alonso against pressing sides is as useless going forward as he is while he's defending. He has terrible agility and speed and can't do anything of significance against sides who don't sit off of us. This is why I've always said Moses is the better wing-back. The most important qualities of a modern wing back is athleticism to drive forward and beat the opponent's press through dribbling ability, shortly followed by their ability to beat defenders 1v1. Moses isn't one of the best in the league in these two departments by any means, but he is miles ahead of Alonso. Can't believe how atrocious we look on that left side against any semi decent team.
  2. Ethan Ampadu

    You can read my comments about him earlier in this thread so this is by no means a reactionary post, but I simply don't see what this guy has to offer. Good for his age, but he simply doesn't show any signs that he'll be anywhere near Chelsea quality. Absolute zero parts of his game stands out. The only thing he seems to be semi decent at is finding space to receive the ball but that's no good if you don't have the awareness or passing ability to do something with it. Constantly shouting at others when you've got your own problems (and not to mention he's only 17) doesn't look great either. Reminds me of 2015 Ivanovic in that sense. I'm not usually critical with youngsters but I couldn't help but be baffled at the unjustified hype he is getting.
  3. 10. Eden Hazard

    Same people who blamed him and Costa for whatever reason instead of the likes of Ivanovic or Cahill in 2015/16. For some reason a lot of Chelsea fans tend to only blame our best players whenever anything goes wrong. Weird.
  4. 13. Thibaut Courtois

    With Courtois in goal have I have never felt safer when watching our team defend set pieces . The way he commands his area is unreal. Best in the world in this department by a mile imo.
  5. 9. Álvaro Morata

    Like someone already said, our best players are allowed to have bad games (I don't think he was that bad against West Ham anyway) once in a while. People need to relax. This guy is doing great.
  6. West Ham 1-0 Chelsea

    Alonso is absolutely fucking atrocious, and Zappacosta somehow manages to be worse.
  7. 4. Cesc Fàbregas

    Cesc will always have my greatest respect for the professional he is. His commitment and level of performances last season despite limited playing time was outstanding. He's charismatic, a winner, leader, and a great person to have in the dressing room. The captain's armband on him wouldn't look out of place whatsoever. Who would have thought we'd be saying this a decade ago when he was at Arsenal? But here we are. Football is fucking unbelievable.
  8. 3. Marcos Alonso

    Masuaku today caught my attention against City. His close control while dribbling and ability to beat the press single-handedly was very impressive, something I can never expect Alonso to do. We should sign him in January because we don't have anyone to rotate with Alonso anyway (He's better than Alonso) and downgrade him to the bench next season with hopefully a top class lwb.
  9. Liverpool 1-1 Chelsea

    Kante, Bakayoko, and Fabregas Vs Henderson, Wijnaldum, and Coutinho. We have such a big advantage in the middle of the park. We should take the game to them like we did vs Atleti and United. Their backline is there to be got at at and we should (FWIW) win the midfield battle. I'm quite looking forward to this one.
  10. West Brom 0-4 Chelsea

  11. The Conte Thread

    "Conte doesn't have a plan B" they said. The 3-5-2 has been superb. Bakayoko's movement and dynamism occupies a lot of space in attack leaving Hazard and Fabregas with more to do. In many ways I'd argue we're actually playing with a midfielder diamond with Hazard dropping back. Good to know that Conte has realized we were having a very diffucult time controlling the middle of the pitch. Win against Liverpool and the next 8 fixtures or so all look winnable as well. Starting to look good for the 'chaos' team.
  12. Ruben Loftus-Cheek

    And that hides a lot of Delph's weaknesses, but also showcases the stronger areas of his game. Exactly the opposite of Ruben being played in the front three.
  13. Ruben Loftus-Cheek

    I have no idea what Hodgson is thinking playing him on the right side of a 4-4-2. Almost as bad as Antonio playing him in the front three.
  14. 14. Tiemoue Bakayoko

    Hasn't had the greatest start to his Chelsea career, but you can tell greatness is there. I think his potential is enormous. Ability to carry the ball, good technique, proactive defending, etc. He can be sloppy at times, but none of his flaws seem like a long term problem. He has potential to be as good as Dembele for Tottenham, but even better because of his ability to get into goal-scoring positions.
  15. Lucas Moura

    Nabil Fekir.
