  1. Hadnt watched galagher last season but he doesn't really do anything particularly well. Too many passes back. Not presenting himself for the ball, and when he does get it can't seem to turn around and get forward movement going.

    He does press well though.

    We criticize the club for buying shit players and now there's people just brushing it off like it's nothing.

    Midfielder? If Hazard comes back, he would essentially be taking a space from Havertz, Werner or one of the attackers. How exactly does that inspire confidence? People need to realize that the current Hazard is not the Hazard that left the club 2 years ago. 

    Hazard isn't a shit player by any means. Would have to differ on that 100%.

    As for formations and who he would take the place of , a 4-5-1 could easily have space for him? Kante-kova-mount-ziyech-werner-havertz-puli-hazard 8 players could compete for 5 spots with a striker upfront. 



  3. Could be the game changer for us and I'd have him back in a heartbeat. When you look at Man city Liverpool Utd, each having someone who can single handedly win games. We need that. 

    However, tuchel will need to go 4 at the back to make space for another midfielder.


    We're a big club. If he comes and doesn't work - so what. We have a good team already. Many players in the squad of quality. 

    Anyone else who would be available will cost 100+ million and even those players are all almost taken for sure by other clubs. 

    We had our last year transfer window where we spent big and got 2 of Germany's biggest new stars. They'll come good next season.  Sure of it. They need one more midfielder around them who is decisive and inspires confidence.

    We need a striker too though. Lukaku maybe with hazard?

    I'm not enjoying our football under TT, but I'll give him a pass for this season if we get CL football. But a massive amount of improvement in our midfield and forward play is needed if we're to get any where near challenging for the title.

    Agreed. This season is about consolidation and just getting there somehow, which is the only reason this is bearable. 

    Next season we have got to have some swagger in our style of play. As a fan I need to feel excited while watching a Chelsea game.... Nowadays it's just not something I look forward to that much knowing what's to come.

  5. Hope Tuchel changes his style next season. Can't imagine watching a full season of this next year.

    Yea we need a striker and that might improve things, but even now when we get the ball forward the reluctance to make a goalward movement infuriates me. Instead , looking around and making the easy back pass is a soul crusher.



  6. To be honest - can now say after 20-25 games , not a fan at all of the Tuchel style of football.

    Feels like Mourinho all over again, along with the Sarri like death by possession in defensive areas. 

    We have won and drawn loads of games so everything looks great on paper when looking back but this is definitely not the direction I want our football to go in the next year or two. 

    what's good: Our pressing and trying to win the ball back.

    Everything else : It's like watching paint dry.

    What is wrong with fans on here ?

    Well clearly most don't rate him anymore - me included. Still support him though since he's loyal to the club.

    However, he should have been sold for 65 million or whatever the bid was. Losing him on a free considering how inflated the market is now is terrible business.

    50% lure of Juventus and winning leagues easily.

    Our transfer ban

    Having found it tough to adjust in the PL

    He's done this kind of shit before.

    Not being able to command dressing room(speculation)

    Can't handle adversity at all. 

    And not to forget - his team played terrible football.

    Yeah those like rising sun and others booing and chanting fuck Sarri 

    Haha there was no booing or chanting from me. Just a lot of hope Sarri got it together. There were zero signs of better football though and the way I see it , apart from defenders passing it among themselves( which was proven via stats) it was hazard FC for me. He made our season happen.

  10. He could have made things happen for us. Possibly.

    Every other sign he showed throughout the season was not positive. His substituations, refusal to play certain players. Failing to make us play good football. Our football was atrocious imho.

    Yet, even with bad spells where chanting happened ,those were after humiliating defeats and inept performances. We were still ready to give him a chance and gamble. 

    Let him go. We need a more positive happy coach at Chelsea. Being the kind of club that we are, the atmosphere is very important and he often acted out and didn't make it better .

    Good bye. Not as great a loss as knee jerkers are making it out to be. They tend to forget the performances and remember only the results. We were lucky for top 4. Europa league is well, Europa league .

  11. Another referee would have given the Fer foul on cahill,

    but another referee would have also disallowed costas goal for a high  boot and making contact.

    cant blame the ref for this one.

    We did not exert our game enough and even then, did not kill it off multiple times.

    No Hazard no win it seems, and probably true.

  12. Terrible performance today.

    we were shit but controlled the first half because they we shittier than us. We should have hounded them down and pressured the shit out of them.

    Intensity was missing, and boom, we let 2 goals in. Matic does nothing! what the fuck is the point of having him in the team? cant oscar/doesnt oscar do the same job up ahead?

    Courtois did not have to go for the ball the way he did. It was going away from goal and he could have delayed the attacker.

    Apart from Costa and Kante, the whole team werent motivated enough to do the job as a UNIT.

    Ref did nothing wrong.

  13. Not to Good a performance first half. 

    Intensity was missing, especially considering Swansea have been dogshit.

    This game can really do with some more pace(Pedro or bats) for Willian and Fabregas for matic.

    Actually Costa should be subbed. He WILL get sent off otherwise. 

    We can go for the win I feel now with substitutions. Swansea simply do not have the quality to hurt us

  14. Liking the Conte influence on the team.

    Azpilicueta is a beast while attacking! who knew!

    Willian was great in the Jose system of defend all the time etc etc. Dont think he will work in Contes system of attacking football. Still good to have in the squad, but for a starter, maybe not.

    We were finally attacking again - constantly!

    Oscar was great too in his new role.

    Ivanovic is still useless.
