  1. I would go as far as saying LB is our number 1 priority this summer. He was certainly quicker to get forward and offer the overlap compared to Alonso which helped speed things up at times but his decision making going forward in possession wasn't any better and his defending was worse than anything i have ever seen from Marcos, a couple of times attacks were coming down our left and he wasn't even near the LB area.

  2. Had a good game yesterday. Was happy for him. Didm't deserve the stick he got. If you watch him he is always pointing when he is off the ball and directing traffic. His confidence will only get stronger with the goal too.

  3. I mentioned a few pages before that he has made some beautiful passes over the top this season, however our players have never converted them. That was a brilliant ball over the top for Higuaín, which he should have converted. This what annoys me when people play this stats card. He has made created some excellent chances, however people will never remember this because of what the bloody stats show.

  4. First game I watched of Emerson in the PL and have to say that he was very poor... I hope this is not his normal, because the passing was nowhere near this level: all backwards and safe passes esp under pressure. Outmuscled easily out of plays and produced little to nothing in attack. Ross' performance was also worrying, but yeah the team was a bit sluggish overall. Need to keep rotating to get them a bit fresher.

  6. Used to know Keith pretty well. I knew Maxim more as I used to do some reggae sound system dos in Peterborough and Maim used to MC. And he would bring Liam and Keith along with him. Very nice quiet guy.Used to over think everything and they would argue like cat and dog but still be mates Raced motorbikes with one of the Madness lot Didn't do much solo stuff after Prodigy. They did a album without Max and Keith for some reason. Then when it didn't work asked them to come back tho they said they were never sacked lol Maxim

  7. Hard to please bruv! But game of 2 halves really. Started good. Clean sharp,quick passing. I thought even Willian and Ede released the ball quicker than they normally do. But we were cream crackered in the 2nd half. We dropped back which de motivates the forwards IMO. We either buy into keeping the high line and the high pressing completely or it won;t work. We also have to give Fulham some reps. We knew they were going to be a bunch of honey badgers fighting for their PL lives. Specially trying to show their new boss they still had pride. BUT at the same time they are 2nd from botto

  8. Small progress as in we finally made more than one shot on target? Against a 19th place side? We shouldn’t be on the edge of our seats until the final whistle with Fulham. Watch other top 6 sides slap them about. Still not convinced at all with Sarri. Sarri was lucky today that his selection and subs were just about good enough to hold out Fulham. Just.

  11. Very happy. This is Fulham's cup final, and they played arguably their best game of the season today. There's always a reaction after a change of manager, and we did very well to keep them out in the second half. Not a vintage performance, but we had some excellent spells and some of the early-season swagger is starting to return. We now need to continue the momentum.

  14. Rudiger on Sarri, Kepa, & Jorginho Rudiger's recent quotes really sound like he's future captain material. Thought these would be of interest. On Sarri: "I think everyone has adapted to new things — also the coach. You saw the way we played against Tottenham and Manchester City [in the past week]? It was different to the way we played in the first three months." “Everyone needs to adapt. Have we found a good balance of how to play? Definitely. In life, you need to adapt to things. This League is different to Italy, you have to adjust a bit.” When asked if it has been a

  15. Agree wholeheartedly. I hate saying it but we also need a backup plan for Azpi. He's not getting any younger and would love a decent rotation option with him too. So summer priority (pending UEFA decision): - Striker - LB - RB understudy - Midfield The time has come to chop out all of the dead wood (how many seasons do we say this) - but we need to keep a consistent footballing identity and replace the dead wood with people that can play in that system. I honestly think Drinkwater would be useful with Higs up front. Drinkwater was awesome for Vardy an

  17. The problem with Morata was mental fragility which is something he cant be taught. Unfortunately if he doesn't have the motivation and desire to succeed at Chelsea and in England it becomes a pointless exercise.

  19. I don't get with people who say this should be easy game. We are close to the end of season. We have just played 120 min against City and 90 minutes against spurs. Higuain should have buried his chances. 3-1 up and we can be slightly more relax in the 2nd half. Our performance in 2nd half was horrible. Hazard, Jorginho, Azpi, Kante need a break

  23. 1. Think Christensen will start with Luiz, since the latter was rested today. 2. Sarri could seriously do with resting Azpi, who has been playing way too much recently! Where is Zappacosta?! 3. Sarri should also rest Hazard, who has looked dead on his feet since the cup final. Play CHO with Pedro/Willian. Bring Hazard on if needed.

  26. Ohhh Believe me bud so am I!! I am still up for a complete overhaul of the players and the club from top to bottom. But the old saying of 'You can't make a silk purse from a pigs ear' is meant for us under Sarri. Not that the player we have are totally shite but they are a mishmash of a team put together by our previous managers to suit THEIR particular, more defense orientated, style. You cant expect them to fully adapt to a totally different type of football system and manager with a forward posession based thinking. He needs to be given a different kind of player. More o

  27. Agreed with the analysis ... Top notch! For me, it is Fulham a team fighting for survival in the PL (no disrespect to them) and the way we came across was like we were the ones defending for our lives. We won the 2 extra points only by inches. For a team like us, we need to be in control against such team because there are more of them in the league than the bigger ones. These are the team we need to beat convincingly and we look so lost against them at times. Thats never good ... I dont want to see a game of 2 halves when pretty much all the other top 5 team bamboozle them with ease. Som

  28. Agreed. I honestly think RLC is really close to becoming a pretty important player for us - just needs some continuity esp remaining injury-free for some time. BTW, did you mean Morata/Bats/Abraham by chance? Either way striker will likely remain a big problem. Abraham is the player I'm mostly unsure of. As in, I don't know whether he's going to make it at this level.

  29. I'm actually pretty calm about this. If the club hold their nerve and don't give in to giving longer term contracts to our older players, it forces us to give chances to some younger players and take a bit longer term approach. The year before Roman we were only able to buy in De Lucas (who was a bang average squad player) on a free transfer as we had no money available and we went from 6th to 4th that season when expected to start falling apart. It provided time and patience to help the likes of Terry, Gallas, Lampard and Gudjohnsen to develop further and establish themselves. That seaso

  36. Think its only fair to look at the facts. Wan Bissaka has the most tackles in top 5 leagues in Europe. James is playing championship, although hes excelling its a different level alltogether to the PL. James will be a Chelsea player one day, hes only 18 or 19, we need to give him another year or two playing every week to grow... the same with Mason Mount. Wan Bissaka is more than good enough to play here. Hes better than Zappacosta quite comfortably I would say. Azpi is still a great player but Wan Bissaka could be a good long term investment. City and United sniffing about him too so co

  43. Seeing some small progress. But I'm in with what Sarri said, it could take two seasons. However I do expect us to be a bit better next season. If next season with regress worse then this season then that's a problem. But I don't see that happening, I see us getting better for next season. Finally because we stuck with a manager and gave him time.

  44. Agreed, makes far too much sense for it to happen. Instead it'll be an obscure player from Europe that we've never heard of, with a 50:50 chance of success - it could be a positive (Azpilicueta), or a WTF (Zappacosta), for example.
