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

Couple nice goals today unsurprisingly both headers.  Open play with his feet not a strongsuit.  Hope he turns things around but just wasn't cut out to play here after all.

Like Bakayoko, we've all seen that he simply doesn't fit here but hopefully continues to play well and score goals at Atletico as it means maximising our returns on a big money signing that failed to impress here.

While agreeing with the sentiment, I find it hard to compare Morata with Bakayoko. While Morata had a great start, had good games, and important goals at some point, Bakayoko never really player at a normal level at Chelsea. It felt like Morata was "only" a couple of tweaks from making it here, while Bakayoko was never really that close.

The problem with Morata was mental fragility which is something he cant be taught. Unfortunately if he doesn't have the motivation and desire to succeed at Chelsea and in England it becomes a pointless exercise.

Not perfect but probably best solution for us next season if we can't buy players.

I don't see any positives to that if it were to happen. Morata clearly doesn't want to be here, hasn't settled in England and has such a fragile mentality.

Bringing him back will do more harm to him as a player and if he's unmotivated and unhappy I can't see us getting much out of him.

He's been a really poor signing and, like Bakayoko, we look to be in a position where we could get really lucky and potentially get our money back on him. He seems to be doing well enough at Atletico that they will likely look to buy him inside his loan period so I think we should just leave him there and hopefully recoup on him in the coming season. 

If the ban stands we will be in a pretty rough position but I would take Giroud over Morata every day of the week.

We have Michy and Tammy out on loan. I'd rather have them any day.

He’s really a tier or two above those two imo. Not because morara is great but because those two are not really good footballers. Tammy still has time to improve, but does not look promising I must say.

while I agree with @Superblue_1986 that Morata is likely going to flop again, I don’t think we have much of a choice.

he’s imo a lot better than the two strikers we got. Still he does not want to be here and does not have any to do the work, so only so much we can do.

I always wondered if Batshuayi had been given a fair crack, especially after his short period at Dortmund. However since then it's become even more apparent how incredibly limited he is.

I'd agree with your assessment on Tammy, he doesn't quite offer enough at present. However I do think his goal scoring record this season potentially justifies giving him a chance next season when we're so thin up top. 

Morata is easily our most talented striker but it just goes to show how important the right mentality, confidence, etc is needed to go with the technical ability. If his head isn't right, at times we might as well have been playing with 10 men and now he's settled and happy with Atletico I can only see this situation being worse if we brought him back. 

It's incredible that Giroud could find himself undisputed first choice next season but that's what we may have to prepare for. At least with Giroud you know what you will get and he will fight and give 100% every game. He's also an excellent link player and target man. We will need to rely on (1) wingers and midfielders running beyond him and getting goals, and (2) good crosses from wide positions and it could still work well. Unfortunately with the exception of Hazard's link up play with Giroud we currently don't do either of the above particularly well and will need to be worked on a lot this summer.

Both are terrible but rather have Morata than Higuain. 

6 months of Morata next season and people will probably be wanting him out again 🤣
