  1. Re-sign him, especially as it looks like AC is leaving

  2. Rudiger is without question the main one. I'll be disappointed if Christensen leaves and we would miss Azpi's leadership and versatility as a squad player but if Rudiger re-signs and with Silva already in the bag, I wouldn't be concerned with losing the other two.

  3. Man I love this forum. Post after post is worth reading regardless of whether I agree with the poster's opinion or not. Thank you SB, and for the record I agree with virtually every word you wrote here. I don't doubt the contribution Ben was making in the run up to his injury. My concern is whether that was merely good form, or a genuine demonstration of his real level. Obviously we would all like it to be the latter but I won't believe it is until that level is maintained consistently. I can't set aside the fact that Ben was regarded as second choice earlier this season. Whatever TT's th

  5. I agree. I know that our opinions on Chilwell differ as I rate him higher then you do and consider him to be a more than good enough left back for us to be challenging for trophies (put it this way, if Chilwell was the biggest problem position for the club I think we'd be doing extremely well) but you are spot on with what we should be looking for as an alternative left back/left wing back option for him. Chilwell could take a long time to get back to that form he was showing pre-injury. He may never even get back to that, it's not a given and shouldn't be taken as one. So we have to

  6. I'd be a bit apprehensive due to his age and the recent signings to the Prem from the Bundi but I'm honestly getting to the point I'll take Morata back if the trade off is getting shot of Rom.

  7. Also regarding the united match.. with everybody debating whether it was onside or offside.. to think this would not happen had VAR just showed the offside line, problem solved.

  8. I think it was offside but VAR said no and no lines

  9. No doubt his form pre injury was above any previous levels he had performed at so maintaining that would always be the biggest question mark. In a way though the same could be said of Reece on the other side who had a period this year similarly at a level higher than he has shown previously. Ironically when Chilwell went down injured, I felt Reece's performances dropped a couple of pegs down before he got injured too. What cannot be denied though is the alarming drop off in both the offensive and defensive facets of our game linked directly to the loss of Chilwell and James. I firmly

  10. I understand why anyone would have their reservations on Dembele because I share the same concerns with his history of injuries and mediocre performances for Barca... but I watched him the other day vs Madrid and he was easily the best player on the pitch for some time In that match.. I think if TT got him here and could channel his focus.. we could could a serious player on our hands.

  11. I hope no one will want to respond to the comment which follows by warning that everyone looks good in their highlight videos. That's simply not true. This kid looks special in the vid I watched. If he's even 70% as good in reality he should be a high priority target. If we land him, and he lives up to the promise, then I reckon it'll have to be a contract extension for vesper on 66% more dosh than her current TalkChelsea deal.

  12. Sounds like someone has decided never to run out of LBs again! Sosa is the right profile of player I think and most importantly would come in to challenge for the starter's role. I'm not interested in seeing the club focus only on a replacement for Marcos Alonso. Indeed, I suspect Sosa would only consider Chelsea if the first choice function was on the table.

  13. If we are buying a teen UK LB, would MUCH prefer Aaron Hickey he has been tearing up Serie A at Bologna at only 19yo bigger, stronger, pacier

  14. Yeah. I don’t blame TT for this mess at all. Will be disgusting if these players put another manager at risk of the sack by failing to finish top 4.

  15. I like that lineup mostly, but i think Conte has sussed that 4-2-2-2 now and we should try something different Maybe more like a 4-3-3 Azpi---Thiago---Rüdiger--Sarr ------------Jorginho---------- ------Kova---------Mount--- Puli---------Kai-------Timo a bit Sarri style. Usually gave us control, allows us to load the midfield which conte teams usually struggle with, without exposing the flanks like we did in the 2nd half at spurs in the cup semi.

  16. Our league xG last season was 64. Only City (73.3) and Liverpool (72.6) have higher xG than us. The difference wasn't that huge. Not gonna pretend we are great at creating chances consistently but there was definitely something exciting to work on from last season. However, we threw all of that out of the window the minute we bought an incompatible player.

  17. Needed Spurs to get Top 4? He came in while most of us already gave up on Top 4, he brought us back in it, we had some issues but he showed his absolute class last season. It's pretty obvious the players in his attack are the fault not him, Ziyech, CHO and Pulisic are wildly inconsistent and unreliable while Lukaku is pure shit, no matter which manager comes in it will be the same.

  18. TAA 15 assist already this season with 2 more tonight. Mental that Southgate preferred Trippier and even James because Reece improved massively this season after EURO.
