  1. Is there any other source beside Bild that reported our alleged interest in Sancho? Let's say IF we buy Sancho (with maybe CHO going to Dortmund) and Haaland, then how are we gonna manage the game time between Mount, Werner, Havertz, Pulisic, Ziyech, Sancho and Haaland, especially if we are gonna stick with the back 3? That's a lot of high profile players that would want to play week in week out.
  2. I don't know who to believe when it comes to the signings of Havertz, Werner, Ziyech etc. On one hand, you have sources saying they are his signings. On the other hand, you have sources saying they are the club's signings. But either way, I remember all 3 - if not at least 2 of them - mentioned Lampard as a big reason why they decided to join us. Eh? Lampard was clearly a fan of Kante considering how desperate he was to use him whenever he's available. And just because he wanted Rice, it doesn't mean he was gonna ditch Kante. In any case though, we are gonna need a replacement fo
  3. Such stat can be deceiving.
  4. Inclined to agree. Sarri was asked about the loanees towards the end of his season and he was interested in 2-3 players but didn't specify who. https://www.reuters.com/article/uk-soccer-england-che-transfers-idUKKCN1SE1FR
  5. Mendy has already got 24 in 41 games now.

    Eden Hazard

    The Spanish press really going in on Hazard, almost making him the scapegoat...
  7. You could argue that it's Pulisic or Havertz as well. At West Ham recently, the front 3 was Pulisic, Werner and Mount and then at Madrid, it was a front 2 of Pulisic and Werner. And the debate going into yesterday's second leg was either Havertz or Werner rather than Werner or Pulisic.
  8. You really hate Ziyech, don't you?
  9. Just going back to this, not sure why are people making it Pulisic v Werner when they don't really play the same position of late. Tuchel has been using Werner more as a ST recently and it was only last week that Pulisic was starting games regularly and some of them with Werner in the starting XI too.

    Eden Hazard

    Who knows? Things could have gone differently for Lampard had he had Hazard available at his disposal but we sold him at the right time and if we hadn't sold him, we wouldn't have been able to buy the likes of Havertz, Werner, Ziyech, Mendy, Chilwell etc.
  11. He has already been banned. Don't need to get angry.

    Eden Hazard

    Don’t think he’ll come cheap for any club, despite his form.
  13. I mean, they aren’t exactly the same type of players but Willian has all that ability on the ball but doesn’t score enough or create enough chances from open play to get assists while Werner has his flaws with the ball but is somehow racking up decent numbers, with the assists at least.

    Eden Hazard

    Firstly, pretty sure that’s BS and secondly, everything is so dramatic and ridiculous when it comes to Real Madrid.
  15. Great games from the bench? Thought he was only so-so in those games and if you measure the other games against tonight, then those other games weren’t great at all. Forgot about Liverpool and Villa last season.
  16. IMO, today was the first good game Pulisic has had off the bench this season. Last season there were the Ajax and Newcastle games. But otherwise, he started most of the games whenever he was fit. Giroud has also been used to waste time as a sub under Tuchel and the same can probably be said of Emerson. Tuchel knowing Pulisic can make an impact off the bench is probably not going to help his starting cause in certain games, I think, especially if the others aren't going to have that sub impact.
  17. So, he's like the more efficient version of Willian? lol
  18. You mean tonight or overall? In any case, I agree with the notion. It's just of course, having gotten himself into positions to score goals, the misses have been frustrating to watch. He could easily have scored 25 goals by now! The problem is, you have people only focusing on the numbers. Sure we and he want to score more goals but it should be obvious by now that he also brings more to the team than just goals. He would be great for us if he can just sort out the finishing problem. Also, notice how quiet this thread gets when he does well but when he misses a chance, it's
  19. The whole thing with Havertz v Werner was more down to the finishing of the latter more than anything else, I think, but turned out he wasn't the problem tonight! We know what Werner offers to the team in terms of his pace and movement and there is a reason why Tuchel has consistently selected him, especially in the big games. Have seen people said Pulisic can also do the same things which is funny when they are different players. Sure, Pulisic can make runs in behind and all that but he's still someone who prefers the ball to his feet and dribble past players while Werner is someone more comf
  20. I just don't get it. Wasn't tonight perfect in terms of the selection or what we want to see in general? The starting XI that Tuchel put out did the job and were brilliant and the subs who came on - specifically Pulisic - also did the same and had an impact. And the lack of sub impact last week in Madrid was probably also a reason why Tuchel went with the starting XI that he did.
