  1. Frank Lampard

    And? You can't reap the rewards of a man's professionalism and celebrate it for 13 years then criticise him for those very same qualities when he leaves.

  3. 15. Kurt Zouma

    This lad is just saying and doing all the right things. Looking forward to the Bolton match because he should definitely get a start.
  4. Cesc Fàbregas

    Exactly. Go into most pubs with Chelsea supporters and you'll see a lot of these types of debates about Oscar and other players. It doesn't mean all these blokes are 'bashing' these players or have agendas against them. People on a forum discussing players in forthright terms....whatever next?
  5. Nemanja Matic

    He would take Joe Allen's spot on the left of their diamond or midfield 3. Every. Single. Day. Of. The. Week. Well Sterling is a more advanced midfielder, Henderson would play next to him (with slippy Gerrard in there) and Sturridge is a striker. He also wouldn't take Moreno's spot or Mignolet's spot. He'd give Gerrard the help he needs defensively without being as one-dimensional as Leiva, and support the attack without being as useless defensively as Coutinho. Essentially he's a link man like Modric, a better Joe Allen.
  6. Gary Cahill

    Yet he's also been praised for being very proactive in dealing with Lukaku, harrying him and not giving him time on the ball. Did you see that bit in the first half when he had the water bottle in his hand and simply refused to turn it into wine?
  7. Gary Cahill

    Great point. He tracked him superbly for much of the match and once again did most of JT's running for him.
  8. Cesc Fàbregas

    Whilst turning over possession 34% of the time. He offers drive and penetration against teams who lose shape. That's something we can use, but in games like the one on Saturday I would've preferred someone who could've helped us retain possession and maybe even look to gain a decent share of it.
  9. Cesc Fàbregas

    It wasn't though for most of it. Everton DOMINATED us in midfield and it wasn't until the third goal that they simply lost a lot of their shape.
  10. Nathaniel Chalobah

    Matic has been criticised for his engine. I wouldn't say it's poor but I wouldn't say it 'stands out' at this point in time. Chalobah's composure however is something I would say is exceptional. RLC's technical ability is very impressive but I'd say Chalobah's was as well. But hey, that's my opinion from watching him play a lot over the last 5 or so years. Let's just agree to disagree. Commiserations that your dream might not come true by the way.
  11. Nemanja Matic

    Actually in the first two games of the season he completed around 85% of his passes. What he's been doing is taking some of the defensive burden off of Matic and some of the creative work off of Fabregas. Now I'm not going to say he's been fantastic in those games you mention because he obviously hasn't. I've even criticised him for his performances over the second-half of last season, but he's playing a different role now and he could become an incredibly important player for us. Of course I could dig through the matches he played where he showed an ability to control the match but with you there's no point. You have a view and that's it. By the way, is Courtois still 'flavor (sic) of the month'? You won't answer this.
  12. Nemanja Matic

    We lost the midfield battle up until the moment Everton decided to go hell for leather. We simply couldn't control the tempo of the match from the 3rd minute on.
  13. Islam Feruz

    Gattuso might actually kill him. Weird Scottish connection there too as Gattuso played for Rangers (and has a Scottish wife I believe).
  14. Politics & Stuff

    Ok then. When and where? Answer in PM.
  15. Politics & Stuff

    I'm done with this discussion when a mod suggests that being disgusted by an abhorrent practice (when I've also expressed disgust for the slaughtering of thousands of people, the disenfranchisement of millions and the oppression of hundreds of millions around the world) is indicative of some kind of unhealthy obsession. That is simply uncalled for and cowardly.
