  1. The Mourinho Thread

    Fair play to Mourinho. He stifled another match and got the goals (scruffy or not) to get into Champions League through the back door. Let's see how his style of letting the other team play the football fares against higher quality in the champs. Griezmann has already admitted to going there if champs lge is guaranteed. Hopefully this motivates our board to improve our team as much as possible so that we don't get caught by the Manchester clubs next season.
  2. Tiemoué Bakayoko

    When you watch him, you understand the idea Conte wants to bring. Having two midfielders (kante and Bakayoko) who can cover so much space, win back the ball and be mobile on the counter to make us more dominant against big teams who press. Especially as we are already totally dominant against the smaller teams with fabregas playing. Bakayoko has that essien potential, to dribble right through pressure but he's still very rusty in his passing. Maybe Conte thinks he can fine tune the passing like he did for vidal and Bakayoko is still very very young anyways.
  3. 11. Pedro Rodríguez

    Conte drills us to a pattern of play and players like Pedro who don't have the individual dribbling talent of Hazard benefits massively from this. I think if Costa was a better linkup player, Pedro would have been even better.
  4. Kylian Mbappe

    Very frustrating indeed. I'm looking at Thierry Henry reincarnated in mbappe and Chelsea can't do anything about it because Madrid.
  5. Chelsea 4-3 Watford

    You're right that 1v1s are very necessary for wingbacks (marcelo, Alves, Mendy proved in champions League) but I wonder why Moses with all his dribbling and experience as a winger is outperformed massively by Alonso this season both in goals and assists. And even Azpi is a far better crosser which is important for a wing-back. Hopefully Moses improves his crosses because from what we've seen today, no way should Azpi be moved from the centerback position, none of the rest are good enough to replace him.
  6. Chelsea 4-3 Watford

    He's our very own Lahm. Versatile, can play any position and give you a 7/10 performance. I know people will disagree but I think Azpi will be better than Moses in the wingback role. He already has more assists than Moses as a centerback.
  7. Problem changing pages

    I thought I was the only one who has this problem. I literally can't open the next page on any thread on talkchelsea unless I open on a new tab
  8. The European Leagues & Competitions Thread V2

    Manutd are used to attacking football along with winning things for so long under Ferguson. We'll see how long they can take this especially when Mourinho doesn't win. And he had the guts to say he played the same football as Conte with us and his was not praised?? Lol Dreadful park the bus stuff for two consecutive games
  9. Alvaro Morata

    You're right. A lot of people don't consider that when the striker constantly loses the ball, leads to counter attacks against his team, which in turn harms the team’s defence. And it hampers a team from mounting pressure on the opponent or taking advantage of counterattacks. Having a good technical striker is a more important factor of a team than a lot of people realize.
  10. Alvaro Morata

    The things Morata instantly improves over Costa is the linkup play, holdup play, dribbling and aerial threat. Hazard will love him. Morata still runs the channels like costa, is energetic and presses from the front like Conte likes. The major problem is if he's as good a goalscoring striker as Costa or even lukaku. But his stats are good though. http://imgur.com/a/ACpjm[/img] http://imgur.com/a/ACpjm http://www.imgur.com/a/ACpjm http://www.imgur.com/a/ACpjm[/img]
  11. The Conte Thread

    Good post. Because we've dominated the league, suddenly everyone has forgotten how we got here. Everyone has forgotten that Moses couldn't get a start for Westham or Liverpool, Everyone has forgotten that Alonso was average in the league for Bolton/Sunderland, everyone has forgotten that Luiz was benched for marquinos in PSG and a defensive liability before in the league, everyone has forgotten how Cahill was costing us goals with back passes lapses in concentration. Ivanovic, Oscar and Terry were still starting and we were eight points behind first position by late September. Conte has given on a season of excitement. Top scorers in the league, Lots of fantastic, memorable matches (3-0 Burnley, 3-1 Mancity, 4-0 Manutd, 5-0 Everton, 4-2 Stoke, 3-1 Arsenal, 4-2 Spurs, etc) Yet jealous peeps like Mourinho criticize our style and even Wenger is saying we play like Leicester city last season without taking the initiative. Even without landing his first choice players, combine this with facing two managers (Mourinho & Pep) who spent 200mil and got their targets he has done magnificent. Just imagine what we can do if we get his technical and mobile targets. The future is looking good for us, hopefully he's backed massively.
  12. The Conte Thread

    Exactly. And we are going into the Champions League next season, so we need to prepare a team capable of competing. I look at Juventus and see a team we should aspire to be like. Dogged defensively, tactical adaptive to different formations at anytime in a match, two wingbacks who are fast, energetic, can dribble and have a good cross, a striker upfront who can hold up the ball incase of long balls. mandzukic Higuain Dybala Sandro Pjanic Khedira Alves Cheilini Bonucci Barzagli Buffon Vs Hazard (Striker) Pedro Mendy (CM) kante Azpi Ake Luiz Cahill With a few signings, we can put out a team on their level imo. The main areas where they blow us out of the water is their wingbacks and back 3 (especially wingbacks) (Sandro) Mendy to provide speedy, energetic runs and take our attacking on the left side with hazard to a whole new level. A striker who knows how to hold up the ball and win aerial balls, so that we have another outlet to escape pressing.(Morata, Bellotti) People on here underestimate this but it's a very big tactical advantage to have. A midfielder who can pass and dribble or is very comfortable under pressure, but is a good tackler (Nzonzi, Fabinho, Naby keita?) A few proper signings and we'll be dark horses for the CL easily
  13. The Mourinho Thread

    Some manutd fans are beginning to see through the excuses but many have already been thrown into delusion already.
  14. The Mourinho Thread

    Defensive as ever. I wonder how Mourinho will spin this though
