  1. This transfer is going to screw up my entire FPL selections. Gotta somehow get him in at 9 million. If he becomes world class we can buy him for 40 million in 3 years time and have the best strike force on the planet.
  2. No excuses this season. The puzzle is completed. Attractive football will happen with Fabregas Hazard costa luis oscar willian schurrle and the rest. Drogba is back as well for those moments where shit isnt working. We shouldnt be winning ugly by choice, that is the only thing that bothers me. There is a fine line between the stupidity of going gung ho and attacking at Mancity, and then scoring a goal vs bottom 10 side, and then playing slower. What i expect is to score a goal at city and be slightly cautious from then on, but score a goal at a bottom table team , and then score 4 more. 4 more
  3. Boga is ready for first team action. If there is anything i have learnt this pre season that i am sure about, it is this! Doesnt need to be a starter, but i can imagine him coming on for 30 minutes and creating havoc. He is first team quality already. A loan will only be good as a starter in the PL, not as a sub elsewhere. He is class. We are producing our own Hazard. Wow! Second observation. Yes it is pre season, and players are finding fitness, but Zouma made a red card tackle in the first game, and last night he made another similar tackle which was close to being a last man red card type o
  4. 40 goals all competitions. i expect us to be lethal this season.
  5. Ramires hasnt been on form for a long long time now. Dont think he deserves a starting position this season. Apart from running he doesnt excel in any aspect of the game, whether it be first touch, passing, tackling. Im not bashing him, but with the riches we have in midfield, dont see his purpose in the team, specially when you have matic in there as well. We dont need a defensive right winger anymore as Willian does that really well, and is good attacking as well. Either way, i would hope he proves me wrong considering he has been very frustrating to watch without producing the goods in a lo

  7. I said only decent teams, i.e. teams after probably the top 8.... hull west ham west brom all the way to the bottom. We dont need to be so defensive against these teams. I get your point, but in general i dont think we are dead without Matic in these games. Yes against top 7-8 teams Matic is a requirement, but against some of the lesser sides where we usually enjoy 65+ % possession, we can take a more attacking approach to the game.
  8. I stand by that tactic. Watched it last season thinking ... if only we had the players to play that sort of a formation. When teams are simply sitting back and doing nothing, we need to counter that setup by going for a 3-5-2 formation and bombarding them, and that too will only occasionally get us behind their backline of 10 players. Its bold, and we should do it against park the bus teams. Nothing to lose. No point starting with a 4-2-3-1....maybe 4-3-3 but i like 3-5-2 also. Its not like the 5 will have absolutely no defensive duties in the moments when we lose the ball. I simply see this
  9. AGAINST TOP TEAMS ---------- Costa ---------- Shirley - Hazard - Willian ---- Matic - Fabregas --- Luis - Terry - Cahill - Azpi --------- Courtois --------- AGAINST DECENT TEAMS ---------- Costa ---------- Shirley - Hazard - Willian ---- Oscar - Fabregas --- Luis - Terry - Cahill - Azpi --------- Courtois --------- AGAINST PARK THE BUS TEAMS ------------- Costa ---Lukaku(New striker)--------- --Schurrle---Hazard--Fabregas---Oscar---Willian--- -----------Luis ----- Terry ------ Cahill ----- ----------------- Courtois ---------
  10. Dont want him if it is at the cost of Matic's starting spot. Also dont want to see 2 defensive players in the 2 from our 4-2-3-1. Dont get this speculation as it doesnt make sense unless matic gets a less regular role.
  11. Was disappointing yesterday, but it is pre season. However, in saying that, alot of other youngsters were also in early pre season and looked spectacular. Needs to show more as pre season goes on. Convenient passes and uninventive play are not longer passable even as a defensive midfielder.
  12. boga is like hazard while dribbling and runing with the ball. Very Impressive~!
  13. So it Begins. The many hours of my life i will never get back !!
  14. Dundee 2 Man City 0 Lineups: Manchester City: Caballero, Bossaerts (Richards 46), Kolarov (Leigh 46), Denayer (Rekik 46), Boyata (Nastasic 46), Navas (Garcia 46), Fernando (Zuculini 46), Rodwell (Nasri 46), Huws, Jovetic (Negredo 46), Guidetti (Sinclair 46) i know its pre season, but most players played atleast 45 mins including their new signings. Lost 2-0. Pre season - doesnt matter. But they lost. Wrong topic i know!
  15. He is is probably the only World class defender(english) in engand at the moment. Not that he would get into any team, but he is immense in his last minute tackling, headers and in general, i cant remember him making a mistake for a goal. Humble too.
  16. Really dont understand why he is going to link up only 3 weeks before PL starts. Its different for players who were already in the side, as they dont require integration, just match fitness. With New Signings, they should be asked to join as soon as possible so they can be fully integrated into the Chelsea way of things. A week more of training with the Manager and players can do wonders for a new signing, so i think this is an issue which should be taken care of in future summer windows.
  17. FFS just looked at that video. Cant Wait. Much better than i remember him at Arsenal, but then again, he was at arsenal, so didnt appreciate fuck all that he did back then. He can be absolutely deadly for us.
  18. Wrote another big post with Lineups and more. Pressed backspace and everything is gone permanently as somehow this loads the revious page. Anyways bottomline, this is unlikely, but could happen if Jose sees what we could do with those 2 upfront
