  1. The Conte Thread

    Conte has finally settled down the team. He takes time but eventually gets it right, hes found a way to get our three most creative players on the pitch (fabregas, hazard, morata) without hampering the shape of the team. But we have some areas of improvements we should treat, Wingbacks and Box to box midfielder. The 3-5-2 means the wingbacks are the only people that provide width for the team, it means if they arent quality, we have no quality on our wings. We've all been disappointed in Zappacosta, but see how an above average player in moses improves the right wing by his presence and dribbling style. Just imagine if we had genuine quality on both flanks, especially the Left wingback position. Conte saw this and wanted sandro, who can dribble, cross, defend better and is faster than what we have but our board couldn't pull through. Hopefully we can improve the quality just like Mancity have so that we don't get left behind quality-wise.

    Oops Burnley was 5th for a while above liverpool. But my point still stands. Im definitely sure we'll finish above United
  3. Chelsea 1-0 Swansea

    With the amount of space our wingbacks have, and constant 1 on 1's they get, they should be causing a lot of dangerous attacks, but they all cant cross a ball (Azpi is our best crosser ) Alonso gets the most 1 on 1 situations in our team but cant beat a man, and zapacossta cant make right decisions when in dangerous areas. Look at the amount of space they had against swansea but couldnt capitalize. We just have to improve on them if we want to be dominant world class team with 3-5-2.
  4. 9. Álvaro Morata

    He is a terrible shooter of the ball. I dont think ive seen him strike a ball hard with his feet for Chelsea. He actually has more power on his shots with his head than with his feet which is weird.

    They always get the rub of green from referees, but mancity is on another level now in terms of getting favors. How did mancity get 6 mins added on when there was no injuries or long stoppage of play. Meanwhile, United have yet to play a single match against a top 5 side, besides their loss to us. And their average opponent’s table place right now is 12th. In fact, they’ve played: 3, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 15, 17, 18, 19, 20 Will be curious to see how Mourinho does against the other good sides.hh
  6. Liverpool 1-1 Chelsea

    Exactly. Conte was spot on with his tactics. People forget We got back to England on Thursday morning after a long trip to Azerbaijan (Quarabag) and had only Friday to train before Saturday. We had to conserve energy for a while, while showing threat on the counter ( we should have scored in the first half, hazard, Morata, drinkwater all had clear chances while Courtois didn't have a save to make) In the 2nd half we then had the energy levels to go on (instead of collapsing physically in the 2nd half like we did against mancity). This was actually our best performance at Anfield for years and people everywhere have given us credit for going at Liverpool for a large portion of the game and our own fans here are negative as ever instead of being realistic. To say we parked the bus like the Mourinho days is just What more do they want Conte to do when zappacosta, Alonso Bakayoko and drinkwater are the type of reinforcements the board offers for improvement nowadays.

  8. The Conte Thread

    Looking at the table, the only major blip we had was losing to crystal palace. Our other losses were understandable( We had a red card at burnley, Mancity were better than us) if we won palace, we would have had 25 points, comfortably second and well in the title race (6 points behind) waiting for mancity to lose some form (they've already hit their peak performance wise and can only go down from here) But 9 points is a little bit far, unless something dramatic happens (like another 13 match winning streak) But Conte has done well overall, contrary to what the media wants to portray.
  9. 27. Andreas Christensen

    He's fantastic under pressure. Doesnt come out of his position carelessly, and doesnt misplace a pass carelessly. Hes already one of the best young Centerbacks already. Another fantastic peformance in another big game
  10. The Conte Thread

    If only Conte found a solution to when the bigger teams press us. He'll undoubtedly be one of the best 5 managers in the world if he figures how to play against pressing out. We absolutely dominated manutd yesterday. Spot on tactically.
  11. 14. Tiemoue Bakayoko

    He's no defensive midfielder. Hes completely a box to box player. Playing him deep to protect fabregas instead of setting him free was a mistake. He's still a terrible shooter though.
  12. 4. Cesc Fàbregas

    All spurs defenders are ball playing, their wingbacks are fast, can dribble, can cross their midfielders have energy to run and are okay in passing, their striker is the best in hold up play in Europe right now. On top of that, did you see how they press? Tottenham don't sit back like us, but press their opponents. Thats why they look fluid in 3-4-3 while we look gassed out.
  13. The European Leagues & Competitions Thread V2

    Sarri is a fantastic tactician in attacking football. His love for technical players all over the team and pressing football is exactly how I love football
  14. 3. Marcos Alonso

    I'll rather have azpi play LB than Alonso there. We have enough centerbacks now, conte should push azpi there and reduce one tactical problem. It'll be carnage on the wings lol
  15. Chelsea 1-0 Man Utd

    This is the most pessimistic i've been about a match in a while. We have no chance here, Conte will play a Fabregas-Bakayoko midfield, (Instead of benching Fabregas and bringing him off the bench when we need a goal) We'll be dominated in midfield because of Fabregas presence. Alonso will start on the wings. (Instead of a faster player) Alonso will be targeted defensively for his speed once again and left free when we attack because he's easy to close down once we switch the ball to him. our defence will be pressed and we wont press back, so Courtois will be pinging hopeful balls to Morata and Alonso all day, while we stay deep. Bakayoko will get the ball pinched off him at least once in this game that will lead to a Man Utd chance. Morata will be targeted by the physical Jones, Baily or Smalling and he'll be on the floor (a lot) Conte doesnt change, Ive seen enough to know how this will turn out. Hopefully we get a lucky early goal and nick it somehow.
