  1. Correct. Cech has saved only 2 penalties in his first 5 years at Chelsea. And how many PK shootouts he won for us before Munich? There may be some but I don't remember any.
  2. And they contributed to more than half of these goals. 6 goals & 1 assist for Tammy and 4 goals & 2 assists for Timo.
  3. Just need Sky Sports Nigeria to confirm it now.

    Willian himself admitted before the game that he's still in pain so that's the reason why he wasn't playing.
  5. These guys love Havertz and I know they watch the Bundesliga regularly.
  6. I'm sure a lot of people will agree with you. Still, what exactly gave you a positive vibe at the end of last season?
  7. What exactly gave you a positive vibe at the end of last season? We won only 3 of the last 9 games of the season (1 of 5 in the Premier League), we failed to score in 10 out of 35 games in 2019, we lost the player on whom the entire attacking system of the team depended, we lost Kante, Loftus-Cheek and Hudson-Odoi with big injuries.
  8. I don't see Bilbao wanting Kepa back when they have a superior GK now.
  9. Unlikely. After the game, Lampard said that things like that can happen and it's not Kante's mistake. He also said that Kante shouldn't be blamed for that slip.
  10. Alonso looks like a prime Roberto Carlos comparing to this guy.
  11. Not really. 04/05: Scored in 2 PL games out of 8 05/06: 4 out of 10 06/07: 4 out of 11 07/08: 2 out of 8 08/09: 3 out of 13 09/10: 9 out of 14 (monster season) 10/11: 2 out of 14 11/12: 2 out of 9 14/15: 1 out of 11 Total: Scored in 29 PL games out of 98 | Scored every 3.38 games. It's worse than his average of 3.10 for Premier League career for Chelsea (scored in 82 games out of 254 played).
  12. AVB completely separated academy from the first team and even used some people from his stuff to fill the numbers during the training instead of using players from the Academy.
  13. Absolute catastrophe with Inter, average at best with Napoli, didn't last a season with Real.
  14. You're right. Despite the fact that Croatia joined the EU in 2013, they still did not have freedom of movement for years. I was under impression that this still the case, however, I just checked and these restrictions were lifted last June. So theoretically Pasalic can get work permit since last summer. Sorry for earlier misinformation. Wasn't aware that the situation regarding Croatians has changed 12 months ago.
  15. Are the club to blame for not pushing harder, then? Pasalic is clearly not exceptional talent. He won't be able to get a work permit through the same procedure as Oscar, who played regularly for Brazil NT at the time. Pasalic was involved only in ~30% matches of Croatian NT over the last 2 years and for a work permit, you need to play at least 75% of games. So, there's basically no chance that Pasalic would receive work permit right now.
  16. Might as well be gone tbh. Transfer ban and still isn't seen as worthy of a chance? He can't get a work permit in the UK.
  17. Thibaut Courtois is set to be Real Madrid's first choice goalkeeper for the 2019/20 season. Zinedine Zidane is eager to make his decision known before the end of the season and inform Keylor Navas, who will subsequently decide whether he will remain at the club or seek another destination. https://www.marca.com/en/football/real-madrid/2019/04/06/5ca7ac89468aebff1c8b4614.html
  18. Yeah, he was injured for a few weeks. Only back to training yesterday.
  19. Hudson-Odoi played only 35 minutes before those Bayern rumours started.
  20. This is misleading stat. Chance created = a pass that leads to a shot on goal. It doesn't take quality of those chances into account. Let's look at big chances (a situation where a player should reasonably be expected to score) missed: Man City - 58 Man United - 47 Liverpool - 44 Chelsea - 43 Arsenal - 42 Tottenham - 42 There's no big difference between us, United, Tottenham and Arsenal.
  21. Or because his methods do not work in more physical and much faster league than Serie A. Also, see how bad his Napoli was in Champions League/Europa League.
  22. Hazard failed to score in 7 consecutive games as LW before Sarri moved him to CF.
  23. That's completely false. Hudson-Odoi is currently 18 years 2 months and 16 days old. At same age Mbappe played 44 games (20 starts) for Monaco.

    Schurrle started 5 PL games in 14/15 and left for Wolfsburg in January.
  25. Courtois played twice against against Liverpool, while Kepa faced Bournemouth. Anyway, I don't want to downplay Kepa. As I said, he's been more than good and most certainly will have more clean-sheets this season in PL than Courtois in his first season.
