  1. Oh, unreal. Can't wait for him to do his low crosses vs Real and show pashun.
  2. Charly did more in 25 minutes than Willian in 150. Not even a debate.
  3. The most awful footballer I have had the dignity of watching. Alongside Matic. Can't wait for him to be binned.
  4. http://www.standard.co.uk/sport/football/chelsea-make-enquiry-for-bayern-munichs-renato-sanches-as-blues-join-manchester-united-in-race-for-a3598191.html Apparently, we've enquired. Says the friendship between Conte and Ancelotti could be key. Fingers crossed.
  5. Let me start this long post off by saying: "I do not want Lukaku, as much, nor do I rate him as big as some people do." However, Lukaku has massively improved. I was one of the people who was slating him, because he really was frustrating. But, Koeman has worked on his technical aspects. I will lay out my arguments on why Lukaku would be able to replace Diego and why he wouldn't, so please bear with me, here: - Diego isn't better than him technically - Diego is as frustrating as you can get, when off form. Dire passing, no dribbling ability, rarely manages to hold on to the ball, can't

  7. What you just said is wrong on socmany levels, lol. If they had one of Lemar, Fabinho or Silva that doesn't meant they are getting top 2. Quite the opposite. They don't chip in with 30 goals and assists individuay, lol. Not to mention that Bakayoko is good, you've just watched him vs Juve and you're basing yourself of that. As of Silva, Lemar or Fabinho were good then? They weren't. But it's just because Bakayoko is tasked with carrying the ball forward and a missplaced pass led to a goal, he is automatically bad. Which he isn't. While the others stood, doing next to nothing. Nor t
  8. He's better than Matic already. Yes, he wasn't good versus big teams, but this is his breakout sesason, give the boy a shot. Not to mention, that the article is either translated badly or something, because from where I read it, it said we are giving Monaco a maximum of 40 mil. Euro.
  9. James basically said his goodbyes to the Bernabeu. As far as reports go, us, United and Juve are interested. Could we have gotten our man or is he nailed on for Mourinho
  10. Is he THAT good? I've barely caught a glimpse. Please, enlighten me.
  11. Do people really watch him? I've not seen much people praise him, in fact, quite the opposite.
  12. People tend to forget this is basically his breakout season. Nobody was expecting him to be next to Fabinho this year. Not to mention people are basing it solely off CL games. He is still young and has room to improve. He's light years ahead of Matic already. Keep in mind, I like the lad, but I do think someone like Naby Keita or Radja Nainggolan would fit us better. However, I can see the hype surrounding him.
  13. I am still baffled how you are 1.94 and can't win an aerial duel to save your life. He literally left Enner Valencia to win the ball in the air, rather than just taking it off him, lmao.
  14. Was awful for 65 minutes. Probably the worst player on the pitch. Missplaced passes, ruined attacks, dribbles. And then, he changed the game. Massive goal. Has been the story whole season, really. Popling up with massive goals when you don't expect him to. This one was just that. Opened up the game. Same as Tottenham, Bournemouth at home, etc. Great work!
  15. He didn't have that good of a game. He was okay. Again, highlighting the fact, that we have no midfield presence given the massive holes he leaves to be exploited. Any decent attacking side would benefit from it. He managed to missplace a lot of simple passes too. Goal has given him some confidence, but he has to be moved/improved on.
  16. His height and jumping limit him from being an aerial presence. His ball playing ability isn't great. Any tactically prepared team may/will target the area of our RCB and RWB and exploit it. Don't get me wrong, as I said, I love Azpi, I just believe, he should be rotated and played in the right circumstances, if he is to be a starter vs the big CL clubs next season.
  17. It was metaphorically speaking. We have zero actual indication Hazard would want to leave and Conte seems intent on building around him, as he already is the focal point of our team. Hopefully, we manage exactly that.
  18. Mate, I am the guy who was spreading Isco propaganda 24/7, so what is your problem? As I said, these are YOUR thoughts, not facts. So, how does that deny what I just said? Another extremely rude, knee-jerk reaction from professors on here. This forum's really turned into something else.
  19. I'm really surprised. Why everyone has already sold him? He's said many times he doesn't want to leave at the moment and he'll say if he wants to(as he did at Lille). He won't play in this RM team. He values his family a lot and it is reported he loves the fact they are settled in London. There is actually ZERO real indication that he, himself, wants to leave. On top of that, the club do NOT want to sell and want to give him a new contract. So, what am I missing here? Note, that I have said, that at some point he will leave for Real, but let's be honest, why now? I just makes
  20. Depends on the situation really. Sometimes both push up, other times it's just Luiz. It's a transition thing. It's just that Ake brings the balance Conte wants. Left footed LCB, pace, intelligence, etc.
  21. I've never said Christensen will start over Luiz, I said he plays the exact same role and does it better, far more intelligently and should start there, while Luiz takes the sweeper role of Gary/Azpi. I realize Ake won't be starting over Azpi right now or next season. I love Azpi to bits, I am happy with him, because I've been one of his biggest defenders. Still, Ake, to me, is superior and will only become better. Christensen is a no brainer. I don't have a hard on, I just hope we play even better football. So, keep your pants on and calm down.
  22. And? He is very limited and can always be a rotation option. If you tell me, that seeing that back 3 at the suppossed potential becoming real and they develop w'd have a phenomenal backline. All able to carry the ball under pressure, all being fantastically capable defensively. It would be criminal to sacrifice that for Azpi starting. I love him to bits, but he has his defficincies.
