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

Whether you want to admit it or not but with each passing game this guy more resembles the Torres nightmare. Sarriball wont save him. I see another season of comical misses and  a depressing lack of confidence. He'll waste 10 extra assists from Hazard. F** him until further notice. I cant stand his "woe-is-me" body language either. Just a pampered and entitled player

Look, the guy (Morata) says he want to stay, wants to score goals and be part of what Chelsea are about. So I for one will give him a second chance to show what he has to offer.

I haven't heard Bakadonkey come out and sing the clubs praises and state that he wants to stay and fight.

And as for Courtois..Well just let him fuck off or rot on the bench, he's not, never has been, and never will be a Chelsea favourite.

After today I might just change my mind :P

I honestly can't see how his fortune will change. He clearly has no desire to better himself, in any way shape or form.

I'd be extremely disappointed if he go a starting berth next Saturday.

Everyone, this is what people refer to as karma. 

Throwing out actualy good striker (Costa) for being a bit of a dick (and obviously everyone gets offended nowdays) and replacing him with "nice" striker. And obviously it didnt work.

Like they say, dont replace something that isnt broken.

He was never starter in previous clubs, he had flaws, but back in Juve when he did play, he gave everything and realy worked hard, plus whatever he did with feet was actualy realy useful even if he didnt score everytime (still, he scored some brilliant goals). 

That game vs Bayern, he was nearly perfect striker and everyone expected he will be huge player soon. He wasnt regular on score sheet, but in big games, you could realy realy count on him.

One year after joining Cfc, he cant shoot, he doesnt work enough and his link up is average as hell . The bigger match, the more he will flop and dissapoint

Is it players being shit or club actualy squeezes the joy out of them?

Current team; out of high profile players, Hazard, Kante, Azpi upped their performances since joining us. But Tibo went sideways, Cesc too (but he got old), Willian too, Morata complete downhill and same with Bakayoko. 

Former players like Matic, Oscar also went downhill (and then Matic in United back to being solid...)

Meanwhile Kdb, Salah huge improvement once they left Chelsea.

If Jorginho wont perform like he did in Napoli, I wouldnt be surprised at all.

He isn't really a "nice" striker either....check his yellow card stats for us last season.

A number of the players you mentioned couldn't make the step up. Willian wasn't exactly dazzling at Shakhtar before joining; Oscar came from the Brazilian league and played something like 65+ games in his first season, going without a break for 3 seasons IIRC. Salah & De Bruyne were given the chance to mature and grow in the right set up, which was something Mourinho wouldn't allow to happen under his watch.

 

There are several reasons why players fail to produce or improve their game/make the step up, but most of the time, it comes down to the individuals mentality. That sentiment rings especially true with Morata.

 

Everything about his demeanour screams out someone that expects things to magically click/entitled rather than that of a player who wants to better himself to suit the demands of a new league or improve parts of his overall game. I personally think he's nothing more than an impact sub and his previous clubs were aware of that.

Not sure, but his general level of play seems to have regressed.

I know his touch was never great, but nothing seems to be working for him atm..including decision making..

Completely different player to the one that was with us up to fall 2017.

Since Morata is here for another year, lets try to support him a little bit. I know its hard and he has not helped his case in 2018 but lets just blindly believe and maybe he will pull it off!

1) 2017 Morata had 12 goals before NYE.

2) No longer playing as an isolated over matched target man.

3) Sarri system of movement and passing suits him better than Contes

4) Proper midfield linking with the attackers now so they aren't as isolated  

5) Full summer to get healthy + happy at home with birth of his twins.

6) Strikers are pure confidence players, we saw confidence Morata(2017) and no confidence (2018) an early goal this season could bring back his 2017 form!

 

I am not a Morata fan boy, I am not ignoring his recent form, I am simply trying to be positive and support one of our players who needs it.

I agree, but he needs to work on his finishing with feet, around 10 of 12 goals came from headers and like 5 of them were assisted by azpi. I hope he can get his confidence back and adapt to sarri's system. Lets hope having one of the best midfields in England will help him with that.
