  1. 22. Willian

    I really believe Willian being at the peak form of his career can be the difference maker in our CL tie. Hazard is still by far our best player, but he can't do everything on his own. Having another player creating all sorts of danger for Barca will massively help our cause. Also, he is and always has been really, really good at driving with the ball from one end to the other. Hopefully we'll see the same at Camp Nou,
  2. Man City 1-0 Chelsea

    Anything less than a spanking and I'm throwing a party.
  3. Chelsea 1-1 Barcelona

    That or if he plays Hazard as a false nine and and severely limits our and his creative potential.
  4. Chelsea 1-1 Barcelona

    The starting XI selection for this game is a headache. Do you go with a 3-4-3 and leave yourself exposed against Barca's diamond midfield (not to mention choosing between the slow Fabregas vs the average Drinkwater to partner Kante), or do you go with a 3-5-2, but bench Willian who's in great form? Tbh I'm leaning towards the latter. I think Barca will destroy us in the middle if we pair up Kante with Fabregas/Drinkwater. Messi drops deep a lot too, so they essentially play with 5 midfielders.
  5. Chelsea 1-1 Barcelona

    Really don't get why people have Giroud in their lineup. If we're gonna be defensive (which we will probably be forced to even if we take a proactive approach), there are gonna be lot of long balls into space. Giroud's hold up play is only 'better' than Morata's when he's backing up against centre backs and the balls are directly played to him with accuracy. That way he can use his strength to hold off CBs using his strength. Most of the time that won't be the case against Barca and he'll be exposed for what he doesn't have: athleticism. The Barca players will sweep every long ball because Giroud doesn't have the athleticism to cling onto these passes into open space (and I'd like to emphasize open space because they'll be either when we're deep into our own half or have failed to play out from the back, therefore they're played with hardly any accuracy). Morata is better when the ball is put into space, in fact he's a great counter attacking player in general. We saw that vs Bayern.
  6. 27. Andreas Christensen

    This guy is an absolute jewel. Only 21. Crazy. Plays more maturely than most players into their 30s. Immediately made everyone around him play much better, truly sign of a great player.
  7. The Conte Thread

    Even the thought of him getting sacked is disgusting. You can only succeed with average players for so long. At some point every top team needs top signings that rejuvenate a squad and a manager. Giroud is uninspiring. Emerson is uninspiring. These would have been good signings if they were along with a marquee player, but not by themselves. When was the last time we signed a 'marquee' attacking player? Hazard is probably the last one. I'm not saying Conte doesn't deserve any blame at all. But the lack of quality in this squad is genuinely shocking and this hasn't been addressed at all in the past 3 years. 2 league title wins were papers over the cracks that are the lack of overall quality in the squad. Conte knows we need more world class players, I only wonder how bad things need to get for this club till the board does as well...
  8. Watford 4-1 Chelsea

    Right, I've given up on this guy. Bakayoko is a fucking disgrace. Creating chances left and right for Watford.
  9. Edin Dzeko

    This guy's hold up play is probably one of the craziest things I've seen this season. He's like a magnet to the ball, the amount of times against us he brought it down for himself or perfectly for another player was very high. Great finisher too, I'd absolutely love to have him here.
  10. Emerson Palmieri

    Actually the loan with option to buy makes a lot of sense. We shouldn't be throwing out 25m for a player who just came back from a terrible injury, and we certainly don't wanna be paying that much for a - possibly - stop gap option. If he becomes an instant success, great. If he doesn't, we can pursue other targets in the summer. Sadly it makes too much sense for me to believe the board will able to pull it off.
  11. Alexis Sanchez

    "At least we tried" is exactly what the board want you to think.
  12. Alexis Sanchez

    Screams of another Lukaku bid, disgusting tactics from the board - "At least we tried". Desperately hope that I'm wrong though.
  13. The Conte Thread

    Fuck me, I don't want Simeone anywhere near this club. I'm well beyond the bus parking days. Also hilarious to see Sarri and Simeone on the same list of possible managers. Seems like the board (as always) doesn't have a clue as to where we're heading in terms of footballing philosophy. From this style to that, it's ridiculous.
  14. 9. Álvaro Morata

    Right, I'm as frustrated about his performance as any other person. My post probably wouldn't look anything like this had I been typing it straight after the match but I can manage something more level-headed after a few hours. That performance today along with his performance against Stoke reminded me of a certain Edinson Cavani from the beginning of last season, a player who's now become my favorite striker in Europe. Cavani made all the right movements but couldn't finish anything to save his life. Great movement is the sign of great potential, I think Morata seems to suffer from a confidence issue just like Cavani did. We need to give the guy some time because he's young and this is his first season starting week in week out. The Torres comparisons are nonsense, surely they're coming from people who didn't really watch Torres because Fernando wouldn't get himself into those positions in first place (so wouldn't Batshuayi). His finishing was terrible, but that was the only (albeit very costly) problem with his game today. For the most part he was on point with his passes and had good hold up play the entire match. He needs to improve on his finishing ability and confidence. Let us be patient with him, because we can all see the great striker we can have on our hands if he simply fixes his one on one ability.
  15. 9. Álvaro Morata

    Needs to stop looking for the perfect angle or opening. Just smash the ball sometimes ffs.
