Baba's first day at the club.

Let this be the end of Ivanovic please

List of things it took to get this club's best LB games: Mourinho to get fired CB #1 to tear his ACL CB #2 to injure his hamstring Natural RB to move to RB RB to move

Yes, if Azpilicueta gets a serious injury, even then I expect us to put Cahil/Zouma there.

Why is Iva untouchable?

It's beyond a joke now.

At his age he needs a consistent run of games. He is just rotting on the bench at the moment and it's not good to see. The frustrating thing about it all is Azpilicueta need not be at LB. Why Ivanovic cannot make way for a few games to allow Azpilicueta to RB and Baba at LB i do not know. We struggle in games because Ivanovic can barely cross a ball, or at least he can but it takes him about 10 attempts to get a good one in the box, and Azpilicueta bombs forward, remembers he's right footed, cuts back onto his right foot and passes it sideways. We have absolutely zero width or natural overlapping from the full backs so our chances of pulling teams wider to make space for our creative players or just getting a good few crosses into the box are hindered.

Pretty depressing how he's been treated by both Mourinho and Hiddink

 

I don't get it. Abdul played like 10 matches for Chelsea: 2-3 of them was pretty good, 5-6 was average, 2-3 was bad. He is a 21 years old guy, he is absolutely promising, he has the talent... We won't reach top 4 nor bottom 3, why not play him then? Ivanovic is 32, we should start building the next Chelsea right now. Baba, Ruben, Kenedy and Traoré should get a fair amount of time. Iva, Matic, Pedro, Hazard have been deer crap anyway, they don't really deserve to start every week.

Refreshing to have a left back in the left back position. But unfortunately, as Styles pointed out, he would probably drop to the bench once Terry returns.

Dat burst of pace to break away from Lucas fucking Moura. His cross should have been an assist if it weren't for some shitty finishing of the highest order by Costa.

Fantastic performance. You'd expect someone who has not played for so long to be rusty but he was fresh as you like. Really was a secret weapon today. Let's hope, PSG still can't deal with his crosses come the reutn leg.

When he broke away and was hauled back I had massive faith that had he got away he would of selected the right option and we may of scored. He just had such a brilliant night I felt that was a massive point in the game.

He needs a massive pat on the back from everyone in the team and management.

Worst thing is he will go straight back to the bench when Terry is back.

Baba would be flying now if the the fired one hadn't spent the first half of the season keeping him as a permanent sub.

 

Who knows, Mourinho might have inadvertently see the wrong 'ten minutes'...

We need to take a leaf out of Arsenal's book with Bellerin and do the same with Baba. Give him games and let him grow. Next season he will be a big part of the revolution. So refreshing seeing 2 natural attacking FB in their correct position. I hope Hiddink and co wake up now and God knows whatever manager we have hopefully they stop this bullshit with playing Azpi at Lb and Ivan at RB. It is ridiculous. Most refreshing thing is Ivanovic showed tonight that he is a really good CB.
