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

What's wrong with this guy? IS SO FUCKING SHIT.

Ok. He was never a good player, but he is currently at the 'Torres level'.

Exaggeration.

Especially if you're saying that after today's game.

I know it's still early days in the season but pray this doesn't become a thing over the next 8-9 months. We used to praise Torres for his performances but not the main thing he was bought to do - score the goals. Don't need and can't afford Morata to go down the same route.

What happened then was decent goal scoring chances ended up being thrown into the trash..

I'm hoping that doesn't happen here, which at least in this game, it didn't.

Personally think he was the weakest link today. Hearing all this 'led the line well' but not enough for me. No threat at all. Think he'll eventually be phased out for Pedro or hazard up front. Done with him after last season anyway tbh

Keep hearing the Pedro and hazard as false 9 crazy talk... yeah move the one (attacking) world class player we got to play in more contested areas to exploit his most glaring weakness: finishing...  

and we complain about morata physicality... have you look at Pedro? He gets away with it because of his pace and because he enjoys more space on the wings, but he’s lightweight. In most of our games we will have the football and will need a cfs who are a threat in the air too.

my hope is that morata did score plenty of goals before his injury last season. So hopefully it is just a slump now that he is fit again. Of course he needs to start scoring or we have to try something else. IMO if we go false 9 it only means we have no striker and therefore are fucked.

Morata did play well today, but his finishing was lackluster as lacking conviction. His first touch was particularly impressive at times. And he’s always an aerial threat.

Haha. I think I just watched a diferent game, because Morata performance today was nonexistent. The team was basically playing with 10 men. A CF that after 90 minutes only had one shot (blocked by defense) when the team was already winning 3-0 getting praised by his performance is a "little" odd.

I thought he was alright. Not great, not poor.

He didn't actively make us worse like he often did last season.

Improved in staying at his feet a bit, yes, but THAT missed chance at the beginning. I know ref called offside (LATER), but that doesn't matter. He missed whole goal in 1-on-1, AGAIN!

Well and truly the worst signing of the Abramovich era.

He's not even the worst Spanish signing of the Roman era.

No title challenge for us with him spearheading the way unfortunately guys. 

TBF he played really well yesterday. Held the ball well, linked up nicely and made some good passes. The only thing missing was a goal.
