  1. Eden Hazard

    You have to keep in mind that all attacking players like Messi, Ronaldo, Neymar etc. don't run that much and don't need to cover so much ground as Hazard in our system...
  2. Eden Hazard

    I have to agree with Hazard here, I think many of that long balls could be hold up by Giroud or Morata and than played to Hazard&Willian bursting in counter attack We could see many long balls going directly to their center backs because Hazard didn't even try to go to duel with Pique or Umtiti (and righlty so because he is not that type of player and he could risk an injury). Morata or Giroud should start at Nou Camp, to add something to our game, some strenght upfront and to have "route one" option out of the defence if they press high
  3. 33. Emerson Palmieri

    He should be our starting LWB but Barcelona will come to soon I think
  4. Álvaro Morata

    I hope we can see Giroud and Morata in the same lineup someday
  5. 20. Callum Hudson-Odoi

    That could change with attacking minded manager who could recognize attacking potential in those youngsters. Just look at Conte tactics - 7 defensive minded players and hoping that Hazard can produce something. There is no place for young attacking players in this system...
  6. The Conte Thread

    But this is what we have. Too much moaning about our players but defensive minded tactis are still there and it seems that Conte likes those kind of midfielders... He could start Barkley in midfield alongside Kante and Hudson Odoi as winger but he is too predictable. Kante - Bakayoko and 3 at the back could only work with offensive allaround wingbacks so I don't understand why Willian and Pedro are not played there sometimes..
  7. 19. Mason Mount

    No future for this kid at Chelsea with current style of football/management
  8. 23. Michy Batshuayi

    His plate seems to be pretty full with capable attacking players around him Not having to play with 7 defensive minded players surely suits him Hattrick on his debut?
  9. 23. Michy Batshuayi

    They have 14 more games to play in Bundesliga and he will probably score around 8-10 goals with few more in Europa league But Conte rather played with false 9 just because Michy is not a classic target man who can hold up long balls ... or maybe he is just too young
  10. The Conte Thread

    Haven't you heard yet? We have a target man now, Big Sam tactic is on its way
  11. Jeremie Boga

    He is progressing really well, one of the best players in last two months A lot of attacking potential in our academy and "loan army" but I can't see Conte introducing them anytime soon
  12. 33. Emerson Palmieri

    He played 90 minutes in cup game against Torino in December. Have a look at that game if you have time, he was pretty good for his first start after ACL injury.
  13. 23. Michy Batshuayi

    He just likes to complain about our squad quality/depth when we are not playing well
  14. General Transfer Talk

    Not to mention Jay DaSilva, great LB/LWB potential But this is something we will have to accept ... buying average players for 20-30M every transfer window when youngsters could take their place easily I would rather see us spend 80-100M on one player every summer and integrate those kids alongisde Rotation or backup player in Chelsea, training with top coaching staff alongside experience players that can help you a lot > First team player out on loan Not to mention that some young players could push for starting eleven if they are given a proper chance to prove themselves
  15. General Transfer Talk

    Our right wingbacks are Moses and Zappacosta, two VERY average players ... on the other hand we have Aina loaned out, having a very good season, player with worldclass (or at least Chelsea level) potential but he won't get a proper chance ...
  16. 19. Mason Mount

    3 times MoTM in last 6 games
  17. 7. N'Golo Kante

    One goal and Alonso is suddenly the best left back in the league
  18. 3. Marcos Alonso

    I really hope he is degraded to bench player as soon as possible ... no more than squad player that can offer something when you are attacking 95% of the game.
  19. 7. N'Golo Kante

    It really depends You can easily play with two b2b midfielders with limited offensive skills if you put a good creative force in between ... and suitable wingbacks wouldn't hurt anyone, right? I think we slag our midfield a lot but never really point our critics against poor wingbacks that are unable to beat defenders in 1on1 situation and tend to play backwards
  20. Tiemoue Bakayoko

    I was one of his biggest critics but his performance yesterday was great People still try to find some details to slag him but I really liked his game ... he made 4 longs balls (100%) and 1 through ball (100%) to Hazard that should translate to assist if Hazard wouldn't trip over his own feet Very good through ball at 3:02
  21. Edin Dzeko

    We have Hazard and Kante now ... at least compare star players to star players
  22. Alex Telles

    We also have to consider that Alex Telles is playing left back while Marcos Alonso is wingback or pretty much winger
  23. General Transfer Talk

    PSG made Goncalo Guedes available for 40M
  24. General Transfer Talk

    80M for him and Alex Telles combined and we are go to go
