  1. His passion for the club is needed on the pitch. Sometimes you have that one average player that bleeds blue and inspires the rest of the team with his sheer effort and desire. Liverpool has Henderson for this, Manutd had Anderson, they always play even though they are average. We just have to improve other areas of the pitch technically.
  2. I hope he starts looking for forward passes instead of passing backwards every time, if not he risks losing his place to Hudson Odoi who is more daring in space in this 3-4-2-1 formation.
  3. Best game from him in a while. Nice to see
  4. Fantastic goal. Undeserved lead but we'll take it. Nice to see Mount being clinical in the box, he will do well to keep his place in the England team ahead of Foden and Grealish. Werner has been fantastic today.
  5. I hate all our creative players. I was one of the first that was never impressed with Havertz too. Only Ziyech has the talent to be on that level but we will see. Chelsea as a club has gone down from challenging for the league because we have been satisfied with not having absolute quality as our creative midfielder like Lampard and Hazard
  6. I hope Mount watched the performance of Foden and sees the level required for the creative role in a big team. Its not just about energy and running, Foden has that and also adds quality passes, shooting and dribbling in the box.
  7. The drop off from all the new signings compared to when they were in their previous clubs is alarming. Lampard has to do something and fast. The quote below in bold is spot on. If one attacker does not adapt well, you could attribute it to differences between leagues, a shift in style and a lack of time. If two very different attackers flop, you could blame freakish bad luck. If three of them bomb, it becomes less luck and more of a system issue. Some of these numbers have not just declined, they have absolutely cratered even when accounting for the mitigating factors. And this
  8. This debate is an interesting perspective of what happened in the match. Do the experienced players take charge and decide that things are not working and call teamates to come back and sit deep. Or is it the managers fault for not saying anything or making any tactical changes when his team is being battered for 20 mins straight?
  9. Looking at the tactical performance of Chelsea just annoys me. See how we were destroyed in the middle with city players occupying spaces between the lines. Just pure tactical schooling
  10. Look at the quality and calmness Gilmour brings into the team when he came on. How people like Mount have been starting over him is a mystery to me. We only create chances from the wingers/fullbacks because our midfield looks devoid of creativity and we have someone like Gilmour who is fantastic at passing between the lines not playing
  11. Damn.... After laughing at them for so long this season. This would hurt
  12. This is a manager that wants a player, knows his weaknesses and has a plan on how to improve them to the benefit of his team. Ours just looks like we liked some YouTube videos and paid 50mil
  13. This just means that if a team has time to work out the weaknesses of our tactics, we find it hard to win. We don't have tactical plans of our own.
  14. Yes I know Werner has so many weaknesses. I'm one of the most blunt Chelsea fans you can meet as I say things the way I see it. Werner's first problem is his terrible first touch (Lukaku levels) which even affects his first time shooting. He has major problems but the system of play we employ is a disaster for Werner. I saw a stat that Bruno Fernandes has played more through passes this season than the whole Chelsea team combined. How does a player who lives on the shoulder of the last defender survive without balls through the middle?
  15. Liepzeg played one touch football with Werner. Lampard only plays crosses so Werner cant show that he can play that style here
  16. He was terrible, no runs in behind, never attacked the central spaces, was constantly staying wide and providing us with no presence in the center. And on top of all this he refused to shoot every time he had a chance. It's getting annoying now. Lampard doesn't know what to do with him
  17. I think I have to revise my previous criticism of him. He may be playing this badly because for the first time in his career, he is playing under a manager that is not tactically astute. So he is playing on freestyle with no direction. Hopefully he has a bright future here
  18. The tactics is just so baffling. You would have thought we would play compact, cover spaces and hit a Guardiola team who hold a lot of possession on the counter. But instead we are passing between Silva and Zouma aimlessly then we are being hit on the counter instead Is this not tactical naivety of the highest order? Even Ole will play on the counter and get rashford/martial running in behind. Then when we finally manage to bypass the pressing of city, we are crossing into the box throughout. No passes in between the lines, no through balls to runners, no single linkup play. W
  19. And yet again we lose against a top 10 team
  20. I hope Lampard can finally beat a team in the top 10. This idea of only beating teams we are by far better than (quality wise) in the bottom half of the table is not sustainable.
  21. And Boris Johnson's dad has done exactly that
  22. I guess this is what you wanted to post.
  23. Apart from the obvious Ziyech over reliance and Werner corrondum, the lack of a Lampard type of player in our midfield has come as a shocker to me, given Lampards experience and knowledge in how important goalscoring midfielders making late runs into the box are in a team. Instead Kai Havertz who was supposed to play this role has been relegated to passing to James to put in crosses into the team.
  24. Wow. A whole lot of changes. If I was a British man, I would have tried to get an EU member country citizenship immediately people voted for Brexit in 2017. All these new rules wouldn't apply to me once I show a different passport lol
