  1. Kounde for me is the most future center-back in world football. He is only 22 years old and has been playing in the elite since he was 17. He started as a right-back but went on to play as a center-back in the second year at Girondins. Sevilla FC bet on him with 20 years paying € 25M (most expensive transfer in our history). Jules Koundé is 1'78 tall but reaches unexpected places. Seeing him jump is a real spectacle. The taller the striker, the bigger he becomes in the passing game. The secret is in his lower body and an explosive physique. His height is not a problem for his game. But he

  2. Our 12 major signings since Conte and Emenalo left and we took different direction: Jorginho - officially best player in Europe, possible Ballon d Or winner Kepa - even if this is the worst deal ever, does not change the fact that the board is doing great job. 10 great buys and 2 bad is great record for example, and he had great first season with Sarri, just got us 5m in SC, still not giving up on him. Only negative people would focus on Kepa from this list Kovacic - won POTY, great player to have Pulisic - in big period of first season he made us forget Hazard, was amazing

  3. I dont think he was MOTM or anything, but very pleased with Kepa. Noticed his game is evolving. Several times he came out for shots that in the past he would have been rooted to the goal line waiting for.

  4. Seeing that second half resilience and mentality with 10 men against a real top attacking team in a hostile atmosphere is more satisfying than anything else. Remember how we capitulated against West brom last season with 10 men. This feels like a moment which signals we're ready to fight for the title this season.

  5. Gonna miss Zouma as a personality and as a solid Chelsea player. Seemed like a huge character around the place and someone everyone loved. West Ham building an extremely solid side. In fact, they may have a more dangerous side than Arse which is hilarious.

  6. This is OTT. Zouma has been a good servant and always given his all for the club which he has been a part of for 7 years now despite his lack of ability. We should pay him the respect he deserves even if we wish him to leave.

  7. Will say it again and again and keep saying it, Thomas Tuchel, his ruthlessness and sheer will to be the best is the most important thing this group has. Best manager we have had in years. If we keep him happy we will become an absolute force, I am fully convinced. He’s never fully satisfied. No slacking off or oh we did this so we should be ok. First half wasn’t good in terms of the basics and you seen the reaction second half. As he said post match, the duals, recoveries, 50-50s etc he talked a lot about them and whilst its not a big thing in smaller games, in big games, these are

  8. Saul on loan for €5M with a €35M buy option is a hell of a deal, hats off to Marina. This again shows it's only a good thing for the club that she doesn't budge in transfer negotiations. Sure we didn't get Kounde in the end but if she caved on that one she would have had to cave with Saul too and got a much worse deal on that one.

  14. Saúl had more shots on target last season than Kanté, Jorginho & Kovačić combined. He gives Chelsea another dimension in midfield with his late runs at the top of the box. Gives other teams something different to worry about. Solid addition in midfield.

  15. Andreas Christensen. Thats the post. Thought he was superb all game. Excellent performance. Especially after the shit he got after the game v Liverpool last season when he got sent off. Also 10 men or not and Anfield crowd or not, first half 11 v 11 for sure we had the best clear cut situations to score, just were missing the final ball. Then after the red, real resilience, most teams would probably crumble under that pressure and with that crowd driving them on. We didn’t. And we looked as if we knew that we wouldn’t drop the points as well. Another massive game where TT got more or

  16. I disagree, situations like the second half are tailor-made for him. Liverpool were pushing forward in numbers and Timo would have had oceans of space, well either that or they dropped their line back 10 yards due to his presence, either-or would have worked for us.

  17. Rom did well. For him. I thought his limitations were also on show however. Heavy touches, poorly weighted passes and ball bobbling around as he tried to move with it. No player is perfect. Let's just try to put him in positions where he can exploit his strengths.

  20. Wow. Wow. Total dominance. That second half change worked wonders. Absolutely dominated after that change. Dominated the midfield. If Rudiger wants £200k p/w, I hope the club give it to him. He is a colossus. Thiago Silva was a boss. He is still one of the best CB in Europa at his age. Christensen was fantastic too. Alonso had another fantastic game, he was simply brilliant. He made a couple fantastic leaps and is able to stand his own against physical strikers. Kovacic again I will say had another fantastic game but he does not get the praise he warrants from the media and even Chelsea fans

  21. Geez we decimated them in 2nf half, without even going all that much for it. TT totally changed it for second half......good man TT. Could have easily scored 3-4 more.

  30. I know its an unpopular opinion but we do need Kounde in Azpi's position, the amount of times Arsenal exploited that side was really concerning. Trevor is good enough to be Rudiger's cover

  32. The fact that Ralph has instantly started him first two Southampton games shows how talented he is. Walker-Peters was one of their better players last season, bar Ings and Ward-Prowse and he is has displaced him. Only 18 too. I mean I just give praise to the work of the academy.

  33. Wow! If the story between Paris Saint-Germain and Thomas Tuchel ended badly, with the German coach sacked last season after poor results and strong tensions with Leonardo, the new Chelsea technician left a good memory in the French capital. Nicolas Hortus, editor for Canal Supporters, revealed a superb anecdote on Thomas Tuchel. The German coach would have shown all his elegance and generosity: “Settled quickly after his arrival in France in a beautiful house in 92, the Tuchel family hired a housekeeper of Filipino origin. So far nothing exceptional you wil

  36. 9/10 Fixed our midfield. We now have 4 starter quality (theoretically, need to see how Saul adapts) midfielders, each with their own unique skillsets. Tuchel will be reveling in the tactical options he now has. On paper our midfield looks unreal, who would have thought some 3-4 years ago that we would have Kante, Jorginho, Kovacic and Saul all in our squad. I still remember how people on here were dreaming about and how unrealistic it seemed to sign any of them, but here we are... Also finally got a proper striker in Lukaku. Even with Giroud and Tammy gone, we still have Havertz and

  38. how can you NOT rate Jorgiho at this point he has been magnificent for months even his defence and tacking has been crazy good and other than the bonehead confusion where alonso knocked the ball away from Mendy, that lead to the pen and red, he was solid as fuck overall, other than one time (and he had cover at least, to a point) he shut down Salah for the most part

  43. Open play assist for James goal, @NikkiCFC where you at? Red Cafe talking about Pogba? Bar a Leno save from Lukaku and Havertz mistiming his jump from another good cross, could have easily got 3 assists today with better finishing/luck…… So for a bad game by sounds of reactions on here, 1 assist on top of considering that most days he probably would of gotten at least one more (Leno save top drawer tbf) and perhaps a third, not bad…

  44. Well the ball for Lukaku was good awareness and should have been another assist, however Leno made a great save.
