24. Gary Cahill

Would really love an upgrade for him, but obviously difficult in many regards. He is in a system that is working and we are getting wins, so it is hard to drop a player for that. Also, who is there out there available at the moment? 

Hate to say it, but Koulibaly would be a dream next to Luiz. Both are so strong and good on the ball. Not to mention that they are lightning quick for CBs.

Need to put him on bench and make Luiz captain as soon as possible. Him wearing that armband and making that kind of errors, mostly often being the worst player of our team is not really what we need.

I gave him some dues thinking he had pulled his sox up but sorry its time to say ta ra to Gazza. He was along with Alonso on that side of the pitch our weakest player (s and teams will start to try and take advantage of it.).

Matic being away has shown him to be weak and just like when teams took advantage of Ivas weakness they will target Cahill/Alonso..

We need to drop him now and put Happy in whether Conte will want to buy in or bring back loanees whatever. But we cant gamble on that kinda game from him again.

I don't think we get Luiz had Koulibaly signed. I agree with you though

Its funny how almost every Chelsea podcast I listen to has become Gary Cahill apologists. I mean don't get me wrong when he is good he is very good but by the same token when he is shit he is real shit. 

In 14 games this season he's made at least 7 or 8 critical errors, some that have led to goals and other that have gone unpunished. Can you imagine if David Luiz or Ivanovic had made as many what the backlash would be on them???

I realize he's a great guy and consummate pro but that doesn't exempt him from being a liability at the back. He's just not regained the confidence we saw in 2015 and clearly has lost some of the pace he once had to deal with his rickets. 

I think if we buy again for the CB position it will put Cahill under threat because on current form he Luiz and Azpi are irreplaceable. You got to wonder what a back three of Luiz, Azpi and Bonucci would look like... Even Koulibaly!

And with the rumours Laurentis wants 60m, it should never happen. Thats just way too much money.

Gary Cahill: Chelsea beating Tottenham in League Cup final was more satisfying than winning the Champions League

He's been working on those biceps

Haha I always wondered how he got those ridiculously oversized biceps when the rest of him is rather slim given his height. Now I know it. His biceps insertions are so short he can virtually just look at a dumbbell and grow some muscle there

 

Great performance yesterday btw. Credit where it's due. Broke one of Hulls better players's skull and the guy they sent of for Mason was awful. Sounds cynical but sort of won us the gamen even before he eventually sealed it himself.

We really need a good left-footed defender there, Aké needs to step up asap and get his spot ready for next season. 

His performance yesterday left me short for words, he will just never have a comfortable 90 minutes on the ball, always looking out of balance and struggling, thus making our build-up so slow and perillous. 

His defending on Rashford was comical at times, as soon as Luiz had missed his header we all knew Rashford had the better of Cahill, it was just a matter of when he will get his shot away. 

He has stepped up to be fair to him, especially after that debacle at Arsenal where he was atrocious, and has been a fairly decent captain over the course of the season, but we definitely need better replacement, either Zouma, Aké, Alonso somewhere or a good DB to come next season.

I've said plenty about Gary since he's been here but God bless him, he's is obviously committed and a happy member of the club.
He's living the dream. He could've easily been playing for Stoke instead of Chelsea all these years.

Indeed. He will never go down as a real legend, because he isn't as good as Terry ever was for us for example, but he will be regarded as a cult hero at Stamford Bridge and will always have the respect from our fans.

After seeing how much that goal meant to him I don't think I can really dislike him as a player anymore. Looks like he truly cares. Fair play. Way to redeem yourself Gary.

Im glad he scored the winner. That penalty was one of most stupid ones I've ever seen. Have to admit started to like him more after that celebration.

He looks completely clueless when someone runs at him with the ball. Remember the Lukaku goal in the FA cup and then Rashford had him on skates against United. Against good attackers he's a mistake waiting to happen. I hope he's relegated to a squad role next season.

I've never disliked the old gurner. His character is what our players need to have more of.

Not one of us doubts ih love,passion and enthusiasm for the club but this really can't be a time for sentiment.

If we could keep him on the bench to just use for set pieces then great, keep him. But unfortunately our defence needs more than Gazza can give us and he needs upgrading.

Also I cant see Ake,Christensen or sadly Happy having enough to help us in Europe neither. Whether Christensen will be good enough to keep to work with we shall see. But Contes got some big decisions to make and this is one.
