    There were reports that they'd fallen out with Lampard too just recently .

    Mark, as you well know, there are always 'reports' . Which 'reports' an individual chooses to believe, is up to that person, but I think that rather than accepting/investing some validity in any random report, it might be worthwhile laying some names out there, so the rest of us can make at least an educated guess as to their validity. Where did these 'reports' appear, and who wrote them, might be good places to start.

    Chelsea clinched the Continental League Cup with a crushing 6-0 final win over Bristol City

    Well done Ladies

    This seasons first piece or silverware for Roman

    Great performance, and a well deserved victory.

    Oh I think he is that good. 

    Ok. And I don't. But they're nothing more than opinions, which is what sustains these forums.

    When one thinks of all the excuses that have been granted to Barkley and RLC over the years,

    Not by me. Wouldn't feed Barkley (as I may have said a million times before), and I can't see RLC making it, but would like to be wrong. But what does that have to do with Pulisic? Other than being a convenient straw man?

    I'm quite happy to give Pulisic more time. 

    Well since that decision doesn't belong to either of us, I'm happy to go with what Tuchel wants/does. Me personally - if he wants to go, then say goodbye and make sure we get a decent fee.

     


  4. Just thought I'd mention that while people seem preoccupied by how Liverpool have become such a poor side, that's not our team's problem, nor Tuchel's. You can only play what's put in front of you. I'll take the 3 Points, and not be in the slightest bit embarrassed.

    A bit hard to compare Kante and Maka. I think Maka wins by a little too, but would have loved to see Kante with a star Mid of Lamps/Ballack/Essien. His midfield partners at the club have been sub-par at best.

    Sorry, but I think that this last comment is very harsh. No, they're not Lamps/Ballack/Essien, but then very few midfields were/are. Maka and Kante are simply different players, playing in different eras. Both good, but in different ways.

    Sadly it’s to late for me . I really think we are hard to watch at the moment I’ve never really liked 5 at the back but with 2 defensive midfielders on top of that it’s really negative in my opinion. I was hoping we would go to a back 4 after we picked up a couple of results as are confidence would be back but this formation looks like it’s going to here until to the end of the season . 

    Tuchel has basically sorted out our defence, and the midfield is looking better (not perfect certainly, but definitely better). Apart from Giroud, the forwards/wingers are still a work in progress (and injuries haven't helped). It seems to me that the whole thing needs time to click into gear.

    No but you clearly indicated that Droy wasn’t wrong which then must mean that you think one, or both, of the following is true;

    1. We weren’t linked with Aguero for a lengthy period of time

    2. You think it would have taken a genius to pick Aguero over Torres

     

    What is it with you? No, it doesn't mean either of your ridiculous contrivances. You're wasting time - yours and mine. Now get over it, and move on, for goodness sake .

    Give over. We were linked, it probably was discussed here at the time, many wanted him badly and it was BEFORE we signed Torres.

    We're always 'linked' in the press though, aren't we? To pretty much anyone who takes the media's fancy for a headline. And those headlines are always played out on these forums, whether they have any substance, or none. To me, the only thing that matters is who we actually sign.

    You’re wrong, accept it.
