Hopefully he improves on his finishing this season.

Hes on the side of bad finishers but easy chances. And is at the rock bottom of it along with the terrible Benteke, not good enough.

Fucking hell this thread has become pathetic. 

The conditions couldn't have been worse for a debut performance. But he gave Chelsea fans something to be positive about. Well done, son.

This thread is beyond pathetic. People are actually calling him Torres #2 for 20 minutes of play where he was completely isolated upfront and a penalty he missed. What would you expect Morata to do in

It means one thing though, hes getting chances which after the countless Torres comparisons on the last 10 or 20 pages, is ironic because Torres didn't get chances.

He'll get a few chances today I think, I've actually got a bet on him to score so lets see how that pans out haha.

I don't think he had a fantastic game today. Sure, decent first half (finally he scored a 1v1 chance) but the second? Below par. I can't think of any impact he did in the second half.

Yeah I'd agree, but for his 75 minutes he did well. 

Second half he wasn't great but he didn't have any clear cut opportunities and I think we took the foot off the gas a bit but still, like I said, room for improvement, had a decent effort from outside the box saved by Cech (anyone who watched him at Madrid know what he can capable of from 20 yards out so hopefully see a bit more of that too). Newcastle next in the league I believe? So hopefully see something similar if not better, I think it will build his confidence.

He needs to up his game throughout.

Second half was different because Arsenal packed the box and Cech had upped his game.

Honestly, when we went into half time at 2-2, I could see that happening, and never really thought we could get anything more, if not for a bit of magic from Hazard.

He was great in the first half because we utilized his strengths - pace and skill - against that high defensive line. Second half wasn't that great because Arsenal dropped deeper to limit the space and we kept playing balls onto his feet, which we know isn't going to work out well at this point, against physical defenders. No doubt he needs to improve obviously.

Obviously, some will still not happy even if he score a hattrick.

He did well yesterday. Looking sharp. His strong shoot in the first half that got blocked by Cech, showed some confidence in him. So happy for him.

Álvaro Morata: ‘I want to change things, not for the haters, but for Chelsea’

“For me, it’s easy. I could have gone back to Spain or Italy, all the people believe in me there, but I want to change things here,” he said. “I want to, not for all the haters, but for me and for Chelsea. Chelsea gave me everything that I needed and now I have time to give back all that Chelsea give me.

“The most important thing is the way we play. Last season it was direct balls and for me to protect the ball in the air is not my best quality. Now I can attack the space, I can play one touch and go in the area for the crosses. It’s better for me.”

Morata is enthused by the success Sarri had with the likes of Gonzalo Higuaín, Dries Mertens and Lorenzo Insigne at Napoli and feels confident that under the 59‑year‑old’s guidance he too can become a consistently potent centre-forward. “He [Sarri] works with the ball always and when you always have the ball the strikers have more chances,” Morata said. “I want to score more than 30 goals, but I would prefer to score 15 or 20 and get the Premier League or one big trophy.”

Morata also seems keen to lay down roots, having regularly been on the move during a career that has also taken in a spell at Juventus. He spoke of “looking forward to buying a house” and how he can’t wait for his “babies to grow up and to put them in school”. That kind of talk hardly helps Morata shed his polite guy image but, equally, it reflects a level of determination on the part of the Spain forward. He is here to stay and we had all better get used to it.

If I had a job in this club, I would do everything to buy a good striker. How can they start a season with Morata as our main striker?! It's like starting the season with Robert Green as our main goalkeeper.

A player like Morata should be chelsea's third striker, not first.

He's a player that feeds a lot on confidence. I wouldn't be surprised if he scored next game. The downside is that when he's low on it, it gets to his head. It's odd to say because he's 25 but he lacks the experience to handle the bad patches. Prior to last season, he never started regularly at pro level so he never had to go through that.

Personally, I haven't given up on him. He's way too talented not to be given a chance.

Who exactly do you suggest?

We tried to do a swap deal with Manure for Martial (and use him as the number 9 he actually is going back to Monaco days) and failed.

We had a 2 week window to pay only £98m for icardi, from July 1 to July 15th, and failed.

Lewandowski is 30yo in 24 hours, and would have been close to £100m, plus, like Higuain (31 in a couple months) we do NOT give multiyear contracts to 30 somethings.

RB Leipzig was talking £100m plus for the unproven (IMHO) Timo Werner and ALSO saying not for sale even then.

Andrea Belotti had a really regressive, bad year last year and Torino refused all offers to all clubs anyway, plus he doesn't want to leave atm.

Ciro Immobile will be 30 in middle of next season,and Lazio dont  want to sell, unless they get close to SMS money (say 125 to 130m euros) which is madness

Thats it

There are no more top quality strikers who are even remotely available under 30

Balotelli on a free? Thats about all we could do with a shut window anyway,

Icardi and then Martial converted to striker were basically IT, and we fucked them both usp

It isnt going to change next window, unless you think Roman will drop the £300m it will take to pull Mbappe from PSG. Over the last 14 yeas, he has spent less than £490m net TOTAL An average of £5m per year. The ONLY years heever spent big were his first 2. Thats it.

In 2 of the last 14 years we actually turned a profit on transfers, meaning we sold more than we brought in, in this case both incoming and sales were shit.

 Several other years we spent like £2m, £7m net total This year will be one of the higher ones ever, and after more are sold of loaned out, it will be in £60m or so total

We either grab Icardi next summer, or Martial, or hope that Werner and/Belotti come good in a huge way and the board tosses the crazy money to one or the other that will be their price-tag after ascendant seasons.

Nothing else is going to work atm.

I could live with a £125m offer for Dybala, Juve will tell us to fuck off, OR string us along all window as they do EVERY WINDOW NOW. I dont see us dropping that kind of quid anyway.

We DO have another option (IF Morata doesnt finally play well from now on)

CHO as a nine

I can see it working, he is bigger and faster than Mertens
