    Luiz back for April 1st game with Spurs. April fool.
  5. Transfer Talk Topic

    Given Hazard plays predominantly on the left and Salah on the right, yes!

    UHe didn't have major surgery, just a minor cartilage clean up after he had played the season out People make too much of Conte's polite answers to questions. Asked whether Matic's departure was a big problem, he comes out with some half arsed compromise answer, and suddenly it becomes the Grand Plan that was meant to happen. Seriously, who cares what happened with Salah. We won 2 PL titles with Hazard. Club and managers made some great decisions Salah's silverware remains his PLMedal with us Will Baka help or hinder us in the title chase for 18/19? That is the only question that matters.
  7. Transfer Talk Topic

    You call it quick fire results. I call it a PL title. You call it dumping talent I call it choosing Hazard over Salah. Does anyone think they would start in the same team? Being right in hindsight means Fxxx all. But given that with Hazard and the rest of the current talent we won two out of three titles, I don't even thing you are right in hindsight
  8. Chelsea vs Tottenham

    Understandable, but surely not straight back in from a long-tern injury, and without any game time under his belt? And against Spurs to boot?
  9. Chelsea vs Tottenham

    I’d be tempted to play him in midfield next to Kante.
  10. Transfer Talk Topic

    Agree completely. Imo, Salah showed enough to suggest that he was worth (at least) a squad place to develop. As did be Bruyne, imo. How would we be sitting right now, if both those players had been given a real opportunity at SB?
  11. Chelsea vs Tottenham

    Good news?
  12. Eden Hazard

    Between 2004 to 2010 we were targetting the Champions League. Now we target Champions League spot. That's a drop.
  13. Eden Hazard

    Realistically the likes of R.Madrid and Barca are still bigger clubs, even Man U is; City is still behind but they've over taken us in attracting the bigger players (it's not the aspirations of us fans but more so the club). We can because we defend with more players than other clubs around us do, so we can afford to have a player who does very little off the ball but then is able to produce something brilliant on the ball (well...when he's feeling up to it). Currently I see us for what we are, a team who is trying to get into the top 4 with players who are supposed to be our bench/res/backup players - I'd only take Dave, Kante, and Hazard, possibly Chris and Zappa too, as starters for a team fighting on all fronts. If we had Salah and De Bruyne as our AMs we'd be in the top 4 right now, simply because when they're on the ball their mentality is to make the opposition pay; where as our AMs mostly recycle possession.

    It's quite funny how the same people who bemoan our decision to ditch Salah, KdB and Lukaku, are wielding the big stick with regards to Bakayoko.
  15. Eden Hazard

    A bigger club? Our aspirations really are dropping. Disappointing. I’d rather say we can’t afford a luxury player. No club can. Not unless their bench goes round the block.
  16. Transfer Talk Topic

    I'm not really someone who goes off YouTube videos, and I am in agreement with anyone who suggests that Salah didn't have the best of times here(majority not his fault); however I believe had he been used more I'm confident he'd have ended having a rather decent season, and the talent was definitely there but we had a manager who couldn't be bothered to put the work in to unlock it to the maximum level; instead he opted for quick fire results which included dumping future talent and then fizzled out, something us as a club(also fans) have got used to which is why some call for the managers head because of a dip.
  17. Chelsea vs Tottenham

    Boo hoo. Who cares right now? Nobody at the club should care. None of the supporters should care. He is supposedly fedup? We have top 4 on the line and, frankly, I am tired of hearing excuses why a top level player like him is always blowing hot and cold. I think a lot of our "top tier" players need to show up for this one. Too much is at stake and, while I am no huge fan of Conte, I do find the idea of blaming him for something that has literally plagued Hazard his entire career to be a bit irritating. Conte can be blamed for more than his fair share of things affecting the team right now, but Hazard's form isn't one of them.
  18. Official: Chelsea Sign Tiemoue Bakayako

    I agree. I think he has had a poor season overall but he has shown he's capable enough to provide us with the right attributes. I just think he's currently struggling to strike a partnership with Kante and that's making everything a whole lot worse; but then he has had a very stop-start season and looks mentally exhausted. I still think he will do well here but I am without doubt he has done very little if anything to warrant keeping his place, but having said that the worse thing a player off form can have is a suspension or injury come along and disrupt their game time. Some players respond from having a break, and some don't; Baka is definitely the latter as he has always looked his poorest after coming back from time out. It's his first season and it's been poor, but we can't dump players after one season; just look at what happen with Salah.
  19. Official: Chelsea Sign Tiemoue Bakayako

    He's better in a 3 man midfield as it means he gets away with more. Sacfricing an attacking player for a player that simply isn't good enough just to justify his transfer fee isn't something that a top club does. Our squad player is Fabregas (he just isn't good enough for the starting 11 either). Bakayoko AND Fabregas positions need to be replaced, and Bakayoko needs to be sold in the summer.
  20. Eden Hazard

    Our club is perfect for Hazard, he has zero pressure on needing to perform week in week out, he doesn't need to make something happen when he picks the ball up either, he can pick and choose what he wants to do when he wants to do it. He moves to a bigger club and he'll find himself on the bench, the big elite clubs can't afford to accommodate a luxury player.
  21. Official: Chelsea Sign Tiemoue Bakayako

    Given Conte's original plan was to use him as an understudy to Matic, I think if we can sign a quality CM of some degree then Bakayoko could be moved back into a squad role and be utilised accordingly.
  22. Official: Chelsea Sign Tiemoue Bakayako

    I think his confidence is considerably low, considering the flak he cops on social media. Even though I'm sure it's taken with a pitch of salt, it no doubt would still play on his mind to some degree. What worries me the most is that he looks a yard or two slower as the season has gone on in terms of keeping up with the speed of the game. He either doesn't read play quick enough to get into the positions he needs to be in, or when in possession doesn't move the ball as quickly as he possibly should. In terms of passing completion rate he isn't too dissimilar to Matic - but he also doesn't have the number of passes as Matic did either. Which, when playing in a two man midfield means he's either a passenger as play passes him by, or he's not making himself available enough to get the ball. Either way, he's certainly down a considerable amount in that area in comparison to last season with Monaco. While Kante is having nearly double the number of passes Bakayoko is currently getting per game this season, likewise Fabregas. Personally, I think he's better off in a three man midfield where he's able to play a more specific role. The two man midfield sort of requires someone a bit more dynamic and well-rounded. It would also help cover some of his technical limitations with the ball, as that responsibility can be handed over to that extra CM. Given the money we spent and his age, he'll get a second season and I think that's fair overall. However, if next season he delivers much the same then questions will be asked about his future beyond that.
  23. Movies

    Watched a movie 'Siccin 3' yesterday and really appreciate the acting and even the scene sequences. It is a Turkish horror movie but much more better than any English movies that I have seen of late. Much appreciated and recommend it anyone who wishes to watch a really good horror movie.

  26. Leicester City 1 Chelsea 2

    Lol!!! I remember reading something about there being a buyback clause in his contract, but I've never come across anything that's confirmed it. I don't doubt that as he matures he will improve, I think he's a great talent, but I don't think we as a club have the patience.
  27. RT @gshehi_: ❄️❄️❄️

  28. I've heard them and don't believe them . They're going to get Jokanovic and let their star left back to to United apparently . It's all cobblers.
