  1. 8. Ross Barkley

    Lampard needs to disassociate from all of the superfluous bullshit he uses as an excuse to have him in the team; '''he's great in training, he's a great attitude'' etc. and look at the shit performances when he is on the pitch. Lampard also has to be biased cause he is an English lad, I can't see anything else logical. Simply put, Everton's leftovers are not good enough for Chelsea Football Club.
  2. 9. Tammy Abraham

    I remember seeing him in preseason with a mate and we both commented how terrible he was (against a local Irish team btw, so you can imagine how bad they are). Bats looked x10 times the player at the time, not a lie. His purple patch is over and his limited ability is on full display. I am hesitant to even call him a back-up striker because you need to be somewhat reliable for that role.
  3. 5. Jorginho

    Jorginho needs good midfield partners around him to succeed. Playing the man child Barkley (out of position) near him certainly doesn't help. Kante-Jorginho-Kokavic is our best midfield IMO but he can also sit out games where we have most of the ball anyway. There have also been games against City, of all teams, where we dominated the ball and it was because of him. If Pep got him instead, I have a feeling we would be purring over the prospect of having him in the team. The fact is, there were a lot of players all around him today who do absolutely nothing to help him shine. He is surrounded by crap. A shakey defence, braindead fullbacks and two naive and shy midfielders who are out of position. I can't think of any player in his position who would have done a good job under those circumstances today. I kind of feel sorry for him tbh.
  4. Sheffield United - Chelsea

    All good mate, good to see you here! New job and baby got me tied down I suppose!
  5. Sheffield United - Chelsea

    Wish it was under better circumstances
  6. Sheffield United - Chelsea

    Lampard is getting away with murder because of the transfer ban and playing young English players. Rarely gets his starting 11 right, plays players out of position, can't organise a defence and drops so many ridiculous points. Not even this game, I mean absolutely shocking results like Newcastle, Brighton, Southampton, Bournemouth etc. Really fucking bad. Not fucking good enough all around.
  7. Arsenal 2-0 Chelsea

    I'm convinced Sarri cannot handle managing a big club. His Sarri-ball nonsense may work for smaller teams, but when you already have 50-60%+ of the ball due to being the bigger team, you have to find out how to break teams down. Playing Hazard as a false nine and CONTINUALLY CROSSING THE BALL TO PLAYERS WELL UNDER 6 FEET is certainly not the way. He is struggling immensely when he comes up against any sort of quality, has no plan B, is tactically naive and stubborn. The board got what they wanted anyway. A yes man. Well, that yes man may as well drive all of our best players to the airport because they will not stick around for this bullshit. If he wasn't gone before, Hazard is definitely gone now with these terrible tactics and teammates. CHO too. Luiz back to his worst. Willain and Alonso combo = Tweedle-dumb and Tweedle-dee. Kovacic completely anonymous as usual. Hazard didn't care towards the end. Even Azpi had a bad game. Fuck the board.
  8. Chelsea 2-1 Newcastle

    Give the ball to Hazard with his back to goal when marked by about 6 Newcastle players. Great fucking tactic this is. Do exactly what Rafa wants. Fucking sort it our Sarri ffs.
  9. 10. Willian

    Dogshit. Should have been sold a long time ago.
  10. 5. Jorginho

    Suicidal player to have in front of the defence. Presses high up the pitch and vacates so much free space to attack when he inevitably fails to win the ball. About as stupid as asking Fabregas to be the only CDM. Ridiculous tactics.
  11. The Board

    Unless a miracle happens, i.e. we sign: Kepa, Kovacic and a winger under 30 (Martial for Willian?) AT LEAST, the board should be hung, drawn and quartered. If we're not saving for a stadium anymore, where the fuck is the investment now???
  12. Thibaut Courtois

    Madrid fans are going to eat him alive. Gets beaten at his near post faaaaar too often. Be really nice to get Kovacic in return.
  13. Thibaut Courtois

    Let him go get beaten at his near post somewhere else then. His attitude always stank. Best in the world at defending his area and being a prick. Overrated in every other aspect.
  14. The Conte Thread

    When I look at some player's performances yesterday compared to Barcelona (e.g. Willian), I can't help but feel sorry for him. OK, at times it does feel like Conte doesn't care as much but that is also on the players. It's a two-way street. Who started feeling that way first is an irrelevant chicken-egg debate. We're in a place now where we're running out of top managers to choose from. My first thoughts are that he should stay and be backed in the summer - I think we will do well next year if we've fewer competitions to think about. But I also don't want this year-over-year yo-yo season shit to continue. I also don't think there is a better manager out there to choose from. If the air can be cleared during the summer, I'd like him to stay. Regardless, the fact remains that we need more investment if we want to challenge on all fronts. The board will not change though. The likes of City will continue to spend big (despite their very inflated/imaginary 'revenue streams') and we will scrape around in the bargain bins. Hey, at least we go big or go home in recent years (win the league or be shit). Which means next year....
  15. Eden Hazard

    Not if Roberto Martinez has anything to do with it... Looking to injure him...again.
