  1. West Brom - Chelsea

    I hope we win...but this game has a 2-1 loss written all over it.
  2. 27. Andreas Christensen

    As if Pogba would go on a 'televised' interview for MUTV and say anything negative about one of his team-mates. Every man and his dog knows Martial's attacking qualities, we saw that Monaco, we saw him being touted as the next Henry for a reason...but right now with Mourinho as his boss, he needs to put in a shift on the defensive end or bide his time and play the super-sub role. This whole situation is similar to Real Madrid and Benzema. In more than one press conference after Higuain got injured, Mourinho said: " If I can't hunt with a dog, I will hunt with a cat"....then later on Benzema said: "Mourinho called me a cat to motivate me to fight for the team, to make me more aggressive, to let out the anger inside of me"
  3. 27. Andreas Christensen

    Martial is perfect in his current role. In Mourinho's tactics, he wants that burst of energy from the bench, he doesn't want to see Martial jogging around the pitch, letting his opposite number off the hook in the defensive aspect of the game.
  4. 30. David Luiz

    Hopefully dropping Luiz acts like a catalyst for the rest of the team...as our next 3 fixtures are gonna be tough. West Brom (A) - they always play better against us...just like Palace Qarabag (A) - must win if we want to progress in UCL Liverpool (A) - hopefully our wingbacks can keep up with Salah and Mane
  5. The Conte Thread

    How did Van Gaal damage his reputation beyond repair? He's never been known to play exciting football, he went to United, steadied the ship, helped push Rooney out of the club and he gave a chance to Rashford (who will be playing for United/England for the next decade).
  6. Charly Musonda Jr.

    It doesn't even matter if they get sacked because they will find another club sooner or later... Managers at Chelsea don't want to play the youth because they don't care. They know it's a short term gig, so why bother 'helping' the club in the long run? You either trust a manager for a longer period of time (United, Arsenal, Everton with Moyes, Liverpool with Rafa) or you go for the win-now mentality (Chelsea with Mourinho and Conte).
  7. Bertrand Traoré

    Traore wanted to be a starting XI player....as for Michy, he doesn't seem to care if he's second choice, he's more interested in twitter
  8. The Conte Thread

    Whilst I like Conte's passion on the touchline...if he doesn't have a plan B in terms of tactics, he won't be at Chelsea for much longer
  9. Chelsea 1-0 Man Utd

    If I see a Fabregas - Bakayoko midfield
  10. The Conte Thread

    The question should be: How are experienced professionals allowed to down tools during the season? I get the feeling that the players who ditched Mourinho in his 2nd spell may be doing the same thing to Conte this season... it could be anyone out of Courtois, Cahill, Fabregas, Hazard, Pedro, Willian
  11. The Conte Thread

    There is one "BIG" name out there. Proven Premier League Manager, former national team manager, available on a free. Let's get Big Sam in charge.
  12. 3. Marcos Alonso

    I'm still surprised that the club had no alternative targets for the LWB role apart from Sandro at Juventus. Exactly, we may as well shift to a back 4. Something like Rudiger - AC - Luiz/Cahill - Azpi until we find reinforcements.
  13. Chelsea 1-0 Man Utd

    I wouldn't be surprised if he did go for the jugular. Mourinho likes a bit of payback and I bet there would be nothing more satisfying than reversing that 4-0 result from last season. I hope for Chelsea's sake that Conte has a plan B...otherwise it'll be crisis-mode and the media will have a field day.
  14. Chelsea 1-0 Man Utd

    At this point, either play the trio in midfield (Fab - Kante - Baka) or give Drinkwater a chance. Fabregas - Bakayoko was always going to be weak midfield as neither player covers for the others weakness.
  15. Péter Gulácsi

    Why are we being linked to a goalkeeper? That should be the last of our concerns.
