It makes me cringe slightly the way I took the piss out of the gooners fror ages for not buying in the transfer markets. But we haven't got to that stage yet. We do buy (and not just cheaply), just the wrong ones.

We are continually creating chances each game but just not talong advantage of them. So whats the answer to that? I would be much more worried if we were just making 2 shots (or none) like we were 2 seasons back.

I'm still of the mind if we just had 3 new players (4 to be greedy) we would be back fighting for everything.

i think that's the problem 

record of scores:     morata: 15 goals, liga 2016/2017   hazard: 16 goals, EP 2016/2017 (with conte)   pedro: 15 goals, liga 2013/2014   

                               willian: 8 goals EP 2016/2017 (with conte)    bats: 17 goals, Ligue 1 2015/2016

chelsea's strikers are not so good as we think. just hope that morata can improve himself 

the other team's strikers are: Aguero  26 EP 2014/2015     kane: 29 EP 2016/2017              lukaku: 25 EP 2016/2017

We were fucking horrendous, you could nigh on telegraph everything we tried to do. And there is only so many times you can get Azpilicueta to fire the ball into Morata before teams get switched onto it and it stops happening. Alonso drove me fucking crazy again last night, the same rinse and repeat shite time after time kept happening. Get level with 18 yard box and cut it back to a CM because you have no ability what so ever to take on or beat anyone.

As for Morata, another absolute dog shit showing from him. He does things on the halfway line he should be doing in the 18 yard area, evading tackles, sharp turns and winning balls, he then runs at full tilt towards the box and has no fucking ball control what so ever, it's bouncing off his shin pads and then end up 20 yards out of his control. I said yesterday it was a big game for him and the pressure was on him, it's even worse now, he's got the weight of the world on his shoulders. The problem now being is because this club is so fucking clever in their dealings we have no back up...oh wait we are chasing Andy fucking Carroll, great this should turn out well.

The team is stale right now, the football is predictable and we are even getting out Arsenal'd that's how bad it has gotten. Conte needs to wake up, the players need to wake up because if they don't we are in danger of getting a hiding in North London and the league position getting worse.

The thing is that Eden just is not now or will be a striker. At most he is an assister.

And the way hes playing now as striker hes not giving us much at all. When he was part of the 343 both wongers were given the freedom of going where they could do most damage and it worked well.

Nobody is mentioning anything about his performancs of late and he seemingly not avle to (or willing) to step up and do more. Admittedly the 2 of them aren't getting much support from the rest as when we press we do it in dribs and drabs instead of en masse so they are left on their own with defenders up their arses.

We lack quality and have too many defensive players in the lineup. This makes us very predictable and easy to stop. 

Replace Fabregas with a creative midfielder that actually has the legs to play in midfield.

Add a goalscorer to the lineup. Don't care if it's a striker,a 10, a winger or a CM.

he is playing like a striker because also morata is not a pure striker 

but morata is improving that. this squad needs time to improve, or needs great players. 

not rudiger-drinkwater-alonso-zappacosta-bakayoko-moses-willian-pedro-bats, which are average players, nothing more

Hazard is giving us the same he gave the season before. People just expect more goals because he plays as a "striker". 

It doesn't work like that though. The role he has now offers him some advantages but he has 1 less attacking player to combine with. 1 less player for the opposition to worry about.

If Hazard picks up the ball he only has Morata in front of him.

A  lot of times the only option he has is to pass it back or pass it sideways to 1 of our wingbacks.

All the attacking emphasis is on Morata and Hazard. It just takes way too long for support to get there and by the time it does the opponents have gotten back aswell.

Pedro and Willian scored 9 and 8 goals in the league last season. They shared that 3rd spot. That's 17 goals. We've switched them out for an extra midfielder. 

Bakayoko has 2 goals, Drinkwater, Kante, Fabregas all have 1.

We've been playing so negativity recently and its getting on my nerves. I understand the 3-5-2 against the tougher possession based teams a la Ateltico where it worked a treat.

In games where we are the dominant we have no attacking threat bar Eden + Morata (essentially 2 v 5) we dont have an attacking/driving midfielder nor attacking wing back that this formation needs IMO

I hope we revert to 3-4-3 for lesser teams and use 3-5-2 against teams we can counter

We also need an upgrade on either wing back (unless Zappa comes good) and a world class RW

Are midfield is shocking, kante is the only player in that midfield thats worth keeping. Fab drinkwater baka and now barkley its just depressing. We need a player that can turn nothing into something, I really hope we go for ozil in the summer.

Barkley is exactly what we are missing. We have no CM/AM like him. Seriously hope and think he will  prove people wrong.

I mean his playing style in general. We need a player from midfield with the ability to run past players and threaten the keeper. He is the only player capable of doing that in the team which can be a real bonus and a game-changer.

He is a B2B player can capable of running past players however he has never been a goalscoring threat. Barkley on the other hand is.

You know - I totally understand that all the various nationals know each other and are mates but I really wish we would go out in the tunnel psyched up to fuck and down to business. They can rim each other if they want after the game but maybe thats 1 reason we start off so slow.

i'm waiting the development of bakayoko. but he has to improve his physical condition

and i really think that in 352 he will be a wonderful surprise
