  1. Is indeed a pretty bad look to see KDB there supporting his teammates and Kompany actually play in the game while Eden is still absent.

  2. Watched him against Arsenal the other night and he terrorised Bellerin. This guy seems to have it all,pace, touch and football brain. Would love to see him start against City as he's a star in the making. I know I have thought the same about other youngsters but this guy is different. Hopefully he can keep his feet on the ground and his head out of the clouds. There has been an awful lot of talk on here about our poor transfer window. We have a class youth system but very few graduates. Maybe we should put faith in a couple of them and save our money. If CHO keeps up his form and is the real d

  6. Today has clearly showed the bar which Chelsea must work towards reaching. At this moment we are pretty far away but the overreaction today on this forum is incredible. Sarri has been at the club for less than 3 weeks in a summer where not even all of our players are back for pre season yet. To add to this we've travelled to Australia in this timeframe and also played games in France and Ireland. The change we are making is massive. It's not just "hey, we're going to play a more expansive, attacking style which all the players are going to enjoy and everything will be good!". Not on

  7. 30 points behind City and the board thinks its most appropriate to bring in 1 senior player to help close the gap - Jorginho Hazard - "I want good players" Board - "Go f**k yourself Eden"

  9. If we got Higuain, the fraud Torres... Morata would have been on the bench. If we got Golovin, with his high energy and pressing, the snail Fabregas would have been on the bench. If we get top four under sarri with attacking football, Sarri is a Legend.

  17. In addition to Calum two lads on loan in the Championship, plus a lad in the current development squad, have serious first team chances in my opinion. IF this opinion proves correct that's stunningly brilliant work by Cobham. For years I've argued that it was too early to judge the work of our academy. My point being that only players who have had their entire football education at the new academy represent evidence of how Cobham does its job. Given that the average age at which players establish themselves in the first team is around 22, and given that players start their journeys with P

  18. He got 14 last season for an average Lazio side, so I'm sure he could hit 20~ on a regular basis at a bigger club. The change in fee on a weekly basis is the only downer in the saga. Lazio are either using Pogba as a marker or being greedy like Torino were last summer. Look how that turned out

  19. Absolutely. Everything has gone absolutely quiet since Alisson went to Liverpool and Golovin to Monaco. Not that it would have made a massive difference with us but it was an idiotic decision to close the transfer window so early for the first time in a World Cup year!

  21. Look, the guy (Morata) says he want to stay, wants to score goals and be part of what Chelsea are about. So I for one will give him a second chance to show what he has to offer. I haven't heard Bakadonkey come out and sing the clubs praises and state that he wants to stay and fight. And as for Courtois..Well just let him fuck off or rot on the bench, he's not, never has been, and never will be a Chelsea favourite.

  33. I think there is probably a different reason. To start with all academies recruit players from the age of 6, with parents signing forms committing their youngsters to a club from age 8, so all teams have a big percentage of players who have grown up together. That means it's no advantage to us that our lads have too. Further, our graduates have progressed. I know you mean at Chelsea but I think it's worth remembering that the promise of any school can only be that it will help students make the most of their talent. No school can turn me into Einstein, or Joey Barton into Lionel Mess

  34. Its amazing the lads already been with us 10 years. A Thats why I think our academy teams win so much. Theyve been together since they were children. Know each others games inside out. Ans also think that MIGHT be why most dont progress to another level. Not being in their comfort zone anymore.

  35. The problem is tho thats not Cescy now. He needs more time and space to be able to do his magic and in this system he wont get it Barkleys not match sharp yet and wont be unless he gets game time. We will have an idea of whats in Sarris mind with the Shitty lineup. Well for the Hamsik role anyway. Whoever starts will be who he reckons our best chance. BUT I still think thats the position he thinks we need a bit of something extra.

  36. I really think he comes good this season. He has all the technical aspects of his game down pat. People can go on about his one on one misses, but that is 100% confidence. You don't play for the biggest clubs in the world if that is your standard. Just needs to get tougher and stop going down, and the rest will follow. Particularly in this system where he won't be playing that target man role.

  38. Think we would all love for him to come good, not got a problem with him staying and you have to praise his attitude, Tibo Courtois could take some lessons here. But unfortunately we can't rely on him to be the main man, he clearly has problems with the pressure so that needs to be taken away with a new number 9 (I know it's fantasy land right now), i'd be more than happy for him to stay and fight for the spot but it doesn't fill me with confidence if he is our first striker next year. What has me clinging on to the idea that we could get someone in is that Higuain said Sarri wanted

  39. Agree on Courtois but I said this would be what I would like to see if we closed the transfer window now. Interesting opinion on the XI but do you not think if we were to play those 3 midfielders they would be too lightweight? I know Kante is there but still, we need someone who can carry the ball in there for me, Cesc doesn't have the legs, we can't rely on Kante to be mopping up and carrying the ball forward all the time and we've seen Jorginho isn't that player either... that is the idea of Barkley but I think he needs more time. I really think Willian could do a job there, he did it u

  42. I am going to just get behind him and hope he comes good. Its about all I have left in me. He seems like a nice guy, and I know it must be tough to be facing so much potential hate. He is apparently our number one striker, so I support him. I fucking hate our board, I do not hate our players with one exception. I dislike that many are on the team, but we have to roll with what we have. and , btw FUCK COURTOIS!!

  43. I still have a very VERY small amount of faith in Alvaro. I give it 3 weeks before the cancer I get everytime he misses a good chance or falls because he got tapped kills it definitely.

  44. Holy fuck would I love to have a circa 2004 or 2005 Samuel Eto'o. He would go for 30-40 goals in all comps via Sarriball, especially if we sorted RW and AMF.

  45. Our strikeforce this year reminds me so much of 2013/14 (torres ba etoo) the club record signing pretty boy with shot confidence, weak mind and injury record the shit footballer but great finisher funny guy and the still fit but ailing has-been probably the best of the bunch

  46. I like Zaha, wouldn't completely be a bad IMO. He has been playing in PL, and wants to join us. I would go for players who want to join us hoping that they would give their all.
