  1. Romelu Lukaku

    Lukaku could be useful as a second striker in a 3-5-2. We all know Conte loves this system and just didn't use it because according to him we didn't have the personnel for that. If that's the plan, to bring him as a second striker, I think he fits the role down to a T. Now we all know he has no quality to be the front-man in a big team, where he will face many defensive teams, parking the bus. He's useless in this kind of situation, how can people not admit that? Even at Everton he struggled to score under these circumstances - and few teams played with 9 men behind the ball against Everton. Not to mention the price tag... He did what was best for him when he left, as well as we. Let's leave things like this and continue to benefit everybody.

    Let's prepare ourselves for Torres, the second coming for twice the price We like to break this kind of fluke records

  6. The Conte Thread

    Meant banned from posting on this thread, which obviously was a figure of speech, not literally, as people can't even be banned from one thread. I couldn't keep reading through the many pages I was behind and when I skipped to the last page there were people nitpicking again. I just find it to be extremely spoiled and spoiling for people to put everything under the microscope. I came to post about the important win today, about finally giving Cesc a start in a match Matic had no point starting, to say I'm so happy and relieved for having him, a world class manager in every aspect of the job. But I was deflected by a few posts and decided to vent. If people can vent about nonexistent mistakes he made today and in other occasions, I can vent about the nonexistent need of said things, even if this is a forum.
  7. The Conte Thread

    some people should be banned from this thread... honestly. Is the expectation for Conte to be perfect? He's already making something out of the this world with the players we have. Nobody could predict this team could have turned out to be this solid and that's down to Conte and how he works to maximize players' strengths and minimize their weaknesses. That's down to the manager, who has a great environment, deals the disgusting media with grace and class, set the players on fire, found a system that works with players such as Alonso, Matic, Moses, Pedro - that have their positives, but also many limitations. He recovered players such as Hazard - who had the worst season of his life last year, Costa, Cahill, Luiz (even if he was out, he was the same as he was here). Gave solidness to our defense without compromising the attack. He basically made 3-4-3 a thing again, didn't invent it, but refreshed it. Now we must nitpick on his faults. Ok, I don't like his fake hair (although better than bald, he wouldn't make baldness work), he looks really weird in some candid pictures, and worst of all, he doesn't sleep well because of football. I have minor critics to some decisions, I just don't see the point of bringing them up when he's doing much better than expected, none of them compromise and there is no thing such as perfect people, perfect professionals.
  8. Chelsea 3-1 Swansea

    no, the 15 goals he's scored the season should give him credit, but plastic fans will always be plastic fans...
  9. Chelsea 3-1 Swansea

    oh, so now the referee calls it quit as the timer reaches the added time... it doesn't excuse our terrible defending, but that foul shouldn't be called in the first place
  10. Chelsea 3-1 Swansea

    I love when Diego's critics are shut up this way. The few Eden critics too (believe, they exist) hahahahahahahahahahaha embarrassing lot
  11. Chelsea 3-1 Swansea

    our defending was juvenile, but the foul - that never happened in the first place - was called after additional time... shouldn't be a foul either for the nature of the touch or the time. Either way, pathetic defending...
  12. The Conte Thread

    mate, don't you know we have tactical geniuses here that know better than Conte? People who has magic ways to prevent any team in the world to have less effective or good matches in 38 rounds throughout a whole season, to extinguish any sort of slump due to the long season - regardless of the lack of 6 extra matches because of UCL groups stage . Such superior coaches have it all figured out in their minds and did Conte listen to them - or even better - were they in charge, we wouldn't be 8 points ahead in the most challenging league in the world. We'd be 16. Conte said months ago, before the 3-4-3 switch that we didn't have the personnel for a 3-5-2, although that was his plan. I don't know why, just a feeling, my sixth sense is somewhat sharp these days, and in this case it's telling me to stick with the manager's words. Just in this case. Spot on in your analysis. We didn't have huge pressure in any of the matches mentioned. The team isn't achieving things as they were some months ago. Nothing new in football. Let's not consider European football a great addition in matches. As I said, it was six matches distributed in four months. It's not like they are the reason a team is tired in February or not...

    Are we allergic to shooting?
  14. Wolves 0-2 Chelsea

    Willian can't pass even if his life depended on it
  15. Wolves 0-2 Chelsea

    Our decision making in the final third has been atrocious. Cesc the only one playing well...
