  1. Said on TTs thread this is the first time since Mou the first time I feel the manager is not responsible for the rut. I feel it's testament to Tuchel's quality we have only had one fluke defeat in our bad run.

  2. Wow you're criteria for success must be pretty small! The Torres signing left us hamstrung for years. The Barca goal was a great emotional moment to cap off the most ridiculous game but it was technically irrelevant as we were through without it. On top of putting up with Torres, we lost Sturridge and missed out on Aguero as a result and unlike other complete failures like Morata we weren't able to get any sort of return back on him. There is absolutely no way that Lukaku can be packaged alongside Torres at present. He has 7 goals in 18 games so far, 6 of those have been coming

  3. Watching United the last few games, getting Tuchel over Rangnick last January has to be one of the biggest wins in recent times.

  4. I think its also a clear sign of Tuchel’s evolution from his time at Dortmund and PSG too. Maybe I am wrong but I feel he may have been a bit more rash if this happened in the past at his other clubs, he looks as if he’s re-evaluated it all and come on leaps and bounds in that side. We have also seen Conte’s reaction to Costa’s interview with ESPN Brazil (IIRC) or maybe it was AS/Marca where he said the club treated him like criminal and Conte‘s reaction was combustible or more likely to cause an upset compared to how TT has dealt with it. I genuinely believe this scenario and the

  5. Simon Phillips isn't exactly a source I would consider to be very reliable but he's mentioned today that when Tuchel had a meeting with Lukaku, Lukaku refused to apologise and felt he hasn't done anything wrong and that it'll blow over in a couple of days. If that were to be the case and Lukaku is that oblivious to what he has created then I can see this situation not repairing and we'll be left with a Tuchel vs Lukaku situation. I just hope if that were to be the case the board back Tuchel in this instance. He is far more important for the longer term of this club than Lukaku, and whilst

  6. Something that really has to go is the recruitment approach which means that generation after generation we underperform in the transfer market and collect players with a flair for the spectacular but lacking in the final stamp of quality.

  7. True. The fact that we're failing in the league is because of the shortcomings of the squad. And even if it's an excuse., losing a key player for 6 months is usually enough to create an under par season for any club. The last time we lost a couple of key players (Essien, Bosingwa lol) for an extended period and still came out on top was in 2010 when we had quality replacements ( a budding Ivanovic, plus Ballack and Mikel). And thankfully the rest of the squad (with lot of WC options) stayed fit throughout. And even that squad did not have to face completion from a ruthlessly co

  8. we already won the UEFA Super Cup, so get this League Cup, the World Club Championship, maybe the FA Cup, deep run in CL (would LOVE to win it) and finish 2nd in EPL and it will be a great season we still have a shot at winning 5 trophies (6 if we pull off a miracle and win the EPL), and hopefully (if we win the FA Cup and/or the EPL) can start to sort our horrifically embarrassing Charity Shield record

  9. Only regret is the money we spent on him, in terms of quality we lose absolutely nothing so I hope it's true.

  10. When even Di Canio is hitting the nail on the head... https://www.getfootballnewsitaly.com/2022/di-canio-slams-chelseas-lukaku-he-complains-at-the-first-difficulties/ “There are various aspects to consider in this interview: the character, the contradictions, the moment, the lack of awareness of what you are saying and at what levels. Then, there’s the weakness of an athlete who gives up after six months because perhaps he arrived there with an arrogance due to the fact that he does not realize the size and the levels. He won the Scudetto in Italy as a co-star with his teammates

  18. A little thought experiment: What's in it for pharmaceutical companies if they released vaccines or medicines that would actually work close to 100%? They can sell it one time per person and that's it. It would be a limited source of income, but if you look at how they happily exploit their favourite country USA, it becomes clear that their main incentive is profit and ONLY profit, along with insurers (basically dealers for suppliers). People in the States go broke over fucking insulin shots, without which they would die, and they do die because pharmas/insurers absolutely don't care about you

  22. Jorginho, Cesar Azpilicueta, N’Golo Kante and Antonio Rudiger were among those consulted by Thomas Tuchel over how to deal with the Romelu Lukaku situation. No players were sticking up for Romelu Lukaku following his interview with Sky Italia. Nobody can believe what he's done.

  23. Gutted to drop points as we deserved to win this and we needed to to stand a chance of winning the title. BUT fucking great mentality from the lads to come back from such a perilous situation, something special will happening here under Tuchel I'm sure of it.

  25. Contrary to most.. I'm actually less annoyed if we lose now... I want to see fight and passion and that's exactly what we're showing. I hope Lukaku is watching from home and feels like a complete idiot that he is not to be apart of this special game.

  28. Would argue that none of those 4 situations were anything like this. Lukaku didn't just disrespect Tuchel, the fans, players in the media, he also disrespected the club who invested so much money in him with what he said. It's also made worse by the fact he went and agreed to the interview without the club knowing it/authorizing it and not even his agent knew anything about it.

  29. "I have unfinished business at Chelsea", "My dream is to one day play for Chelsea" yada yada... A slithering snake cunt he is. After only a couple of months he's already given up, weak player, zero mentality only ego. And he says all that after scoring 2 games in a row building some form and momentum, undoes it all by being dropped because of his big mouth. He probably wants back to Italy bc he realized he hasn't actually improved at all, he just looks better in weaker Serie A and will never be a star player in EPL. I seriously hoped it would work out, but just fuck off you one-dimensiona

  30. You wait until the right signing comes along. Klopp could have panicked at his defense leaking like a sieve and signed anyone, he didn't and ended up with VVD and Alison.

  32. Slightly moving on I think one thing we can all agree on is Lukaku absolutely must deliver with these fixtures coming up next month. Backs to the wall with the odds against us, games Drogba and Costa would get us over the line in. No excuses, he will win some goodwill with me if he does come up with the goods here, on the other hand if he ghosts all these games I'm truly done with him.

  34. The only thing I'd be concerned with bringing Maatsen back is how keen is Tuchel on him. Tuchel has at least talked up Emerson as someone he trusts could slot back in and "do a job". Emerson is never going to be the long term answer, but at least if he was brought back for the rest of the season I think Tuchel will use him and rotate Alonso with him. I think we have to accept that we'll struggle getting anything in January that upgrades on Alonso but we do really need an alternative there that Tuchel can use regularly if needed. I know CHO and Pulisic have played there now and again

  37. Watching today's game, I some times don't understand what Tuchel is trying to do. In big games where Werner shouldn't be starting, he plays him from the start (e.g. vs Man United this season). In big games where Werner should start, he doesn't start him (e.g. vs City today). None of today's front 3 offered any sort of movement upfront. 2 of them preferred the ball to feet while the other 1 arguably preferred the ball into space but we kept playing into feet. City's high back line was comfortable pretty much for the entire game.

  40. The ironic thing about this is in the last week he's been used exactly how I'd want him to be (ie when we need stat padding but left well away from the big game). He could be an asset to any squad if he accepted his strengths and weaknesses but he wants a role he simply isn't good enough for and it makes him look like an idiot quite frankly. He's got the ego of CR7 without the ability level to back it up.

  44. I have never believed he can come good here. Never. You are free to read the first ten posts I wrote about him. I warned you all and predicted this. When this signing was imminent I wish the fans went to Stamford Bridge and took protest preventing club to get him. I have always told that his ego and the fact that is the first class prick ,who has better opinion about himself than anyone else have, will get us in the major scandal and trouble eventually. He thinks he is Real level player, the world class. His ego is enormous and his behaviour is horrible. He spent entire career blaming someo

  45. He didn't even go through it with his agent. What a fucking big brain move... So, he did the interview after that United game and around the time where he wasn't playing because we were doing well without him and Tuchel was trying to ease him back. Again, @Tomo was right. The second things don't go his way in the team, he goes and moans to the media, like he has done before.
