  1. The better side all over the park, dead simple. The Lampard experiment is well and truly gone, we look much more an organised side and a more together unit.

  2. Mount has been good and I trust him to keep his cool. Giroud has been poor with the hold up play. Would prefer one of Ziyech/Puli or Havertz to come on for him. Too much attacking quality on bench, who we should be capitalizing on.

  8. I just hate how Alonso has wormed his way back into the XI despite having done absolutely nothing for ages and we now have another manager who is seemingly in love with him. He wasn't even willing to sit on the bench and back the team when he caused us to be 3-0 down at West Brom but he now gets "rewarded" because of a change in manager. I'd rather take Chilwell at his average/worst than Alonso at his average/worst!

  9. The most annoying is how a lot of people compare his output to players like Maddison (age 24) and Grealish (age 25), and use that as a stick to beat him down. To me, Mount has the necessary tools, the time and the attitude to reach those levels. More importantly he seems to also have that same kind of endurance that Lampard had as a player. An underrated quality which you value only when you look at players like Pulisic who end up being missing for nearly 2/3'rds of the season.

  10. TBH, thought chilwell was in a bad patch even before the whole Tuchel and formation change. We are not even playing wingbacks, but left and right midfielders. Alonso and Odoi/James always roam and start from the midfield line, which IMO is key for this system to work and not become too defensive. Chilwell can prob play on the left, but I can definitely see why Alonso has been selected for now.

  14. I'm delighted. Frank had to go sadly. Well done to the players - finally showing a bit of heart. If we can stick some final balls together we might become something Do the job in the 2nd round and I'm happy.

  17. Best game under Tuchel so far. Thought CHO, Alonso, Mount, Christensen, all played very well. Giroud’s goal was brilliant. Once we get a bit more cutting edge in the final third, the goals will start coming and thats the missing piece just now because it looks like we are much more comfortable defending and moving the ball. Personally felt Christensen was excellent all game. Have noticed the last few games it would appear he seems to be winning much more aerial duels, almost looks as if he has started jumping a split second earlier than usual to make himself favourite for these

  21. Not to jinx it or speak too soon, but I expected much better from Atleti. Top of La Liga and all. We were the much better side and their only real dangers came from our silly giveaways. Slightly more quality with the final ball and we would’ve tested them much more.

  25. As for now, he is our best LWB. Chilwell hasn´t been up to his best since November, so in my opinion Alonso deserved his chance and hasn´t done anything wrong so far.

  26. This is not true. He has just 5 games as AM and 2 assists and 1 penalty won. But look at this game for example he played AM and ended up with 1 assist ad 1 pen won. But could easily had 4 assists. You can see all this in 2 mins video. Also about Mount, you realize he is not number 8 anymore? Under Tuchel he is one of the 3 most offensive players and even under Frank he played winger many times.

  28. Game day!! I am pumped. A couple weeks ago I was looking forward to this game like it was a trip to the dentist office. Now, I think we can come out of it in a good position for the second leg. No idea what will happen, but there is at least hope!

  33. Some people only seem to want to see us do well when certain players aren’t playing I think But its been happening for years, Mikel, Ivanovic, Cahill... nothing new, just a different name. And now Atletico are at the theatricality to try score some points, get a man off and disrupt the flow of the game. Pathetic but to be expected, Everton did us like that at the end of 2020.

  38. Comparing him to Grealish is different. Grealish is a wide player. His games in a central role this season he has 0 goals and 0 assists. Not his position again but gets frustrating how when everyone mentions Mason Mount, Grealish is one of the the first names used to compare him. Or Foden. These guys are used as wingers. Also as you said, they are more flair players (although would say Maddison and Grealish have both worked on their end product and being more reliable) but lets also not forget Maddison took a bit of time to look at home in the PL and is 24 now. I seen him play up at Aberd

  39. Mason Mount for me the prefect (nearly) squad player someone who is needed in a team. He is someone who would be a manager's delight because he offers something in all positions but for fans he would always he doesnt specializes in anything. At 22, he definitely has the right attitude, drive & determination to succeed. He remind of a young Lampard and maybe would have the same path to success.

  42. Personally I wouldn't be keen on giving up on Puli yet. Sure he hasn't been great this season but I think that is due to injuries which he may be able to recover from.

  43. Maybe you're right, you just have to look at Harry Maguire. Personally if Mount was playing for a different club, would I want him? No. He's just a hardworker with no end product.

  44. Another similarity to Willian is that he is our best player when we are worst probably because of that work rate. Yesterday, last month with Lampard. Willian was also our best player when we finished 10th.
