  1. Chelsea - Watford

    The moment Alonso was removed, we became very mobile on the left with Azpilicueta. Watford couldn't attack as much through that side and Azpi had the speed to both defend and attack. Wing back is the only position that gives us width, playing a slow snail like speed in that position is unheard-of among any top team except Chelsea.
  2. Chelsea - Watford

    Im just praying that Watford dont press us, so that we can win a match. Because our style to absorb pressure of the press, and wait till opposition is tired and then attack is just not working well because of how porous our defense is looking. We need to press back when opponents press us, but what do I know.
  3. Christian Benteke

    Exactly. See how he performed against city pressing with driving runs and speed. We havent had that since ashley cole
  4. The Conte Thread

    We were not good against pressing under mourinho, but he was better than conte against big teams in terms of picking out results and finding a way to not get beat. Arsenal dominate us and beat us nowadays. Conte just doesnt know what to do against a press. I love conte but i know a weakness when i see one
  5. The Conte Thread

    I wouldnt say hes ultra limited with tactics, what ill say is he has a weakness that is so obvious to any small time manager in the world. Press his team and he has no answer. Just like mourinho is so defensive against the top teams away from home, Just like Klopp cant fix his defensive issues, Just like wenger is naive against top teams, Conte is a failure against pressing teams. It took one year for others to figure that out but its happened. The pressing is why Conte wanted Llorente so bad... but our board had other ideas.
  6. Chelsea 3-3 Roma

    Alonso is the new Ivanovic. Both play on the wing, both slower than a turtle, in a position that depends on speed to massively.
  7. Kevin de Bruyne

    In hindsight, what a stupid decision this was selling him. Stupid, stupid decision, up there with buying torres instead of aguero.
  8. The Conte Thread

    The only manager I can think of is Sarri of napoli. Attacking football, develops players and wins matches. But I hope conte turns this around and this second season after winning the premier league syndrome doesnt happen at Chelsea again
  9. 10. Eden Hazard

    I think that long injury has slowed Hazards game down. Hes not dribbling as well as he used to. If hes going to have another 2015/2016 season because of injury, we're screwed. We depend on him so much.
  10. 3. Marcos Alonso

    Hes so slooooooowwwwwww. So many times hes free, we switch the play from the right to the left, and he has acres of space. Before he can get forward, someone from such a far distance always closes him down. This happens time and time again. He is a huge weakness tactically in both attacking and defensive aspects of the game because fast wingers also target him and keep us pinned back to accomodate his speed. This is Ivanovic in decline all over again. Unless he scores a freekick he's an average joe in all other aspects of the game.
  11. The Conte Thread

    We cannot handle pressing. I complained about this so much last season, too many players who dont know what to do when being under pressure. Before only top teams were pressing us and we suffered against them last season but now, even small teams like crystal palace are pressing us, not allowing us to pass out of the back and we cant cope. I blame this on the board for buying average joes year in year out and on Conte for not figuring out what to do about this. Worst of all Hazard and morata cant seem to get a game together and we keep fielding willian for whatever reason.
  12. 14. Tiemoue Bakayoko

    This is Bakayoko vs casemiro vs Busquets vs Matic. The one in yellow is Matic. It's from squawka site players comparison

  14. 3. Marcos Alonso

    Going forward Even if he got an assist, I was not happy with his attacking yesterday. So many times he was one on one against a player and all he could do was attempt a nutmeg and fall to the floor when he's obviously blocked. Very frustrating, and he never seems to cross from the left. We have a very good header of the ball in Morata and he didn't put in any cross for Morata all game. I just wish we had fullbacks that are good in one on one situations (attacking wise and defensively) and can cross. Our scouts are terrible at this.
  15. 9. Álvaro Morata

    New Morata chant Sung to the tune of Hakuna Matata Alvaro Morata, what a wonderful name Alvaro Morata, he’s no passing craze He’ll just keep scoring, for the rest of our days He’s our problem-free, Spanish beauty Alvaro Morata
