  1. Official: Chelsea Sign Christian Pulisic

    In his conference today Tuchel - who said before hand that he didn't want the conference to only be about injured players - said that while Lukaku, Werner and Pulisic were not available for for Saturday, nor for Tuesday, he wasn't prepared to speculate as to when they might be available because whatever date he gave would invariably turn out to be wrong. The club have a long history of not giving out much info regarding injured players, other than confirming injuries, and it's only when we see them training again that we know we might see them again soon.

    Roma not playing like a typical Mourinho side in the Europa Conference League tonight. Admittedly not full strength, but still... 😳 😳 https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/59003971

    They're actually pronouncing his surname correctly... take it from someone fluent in French! The a is not a flat 'a' as often found in English but 'en'

    I see you have taken a new path. To add to the "I will just argue and argue and repeat myself ad nauseam" strategy, I see you've added the "if a couple of small graphics don't work, I'll post a really big one! Then they'll just have to agree with me!" formula. Bravo!

    Absolutely. Christensen plays in a back four alongside Kjaer for the national team. Rudiger has often played in a back four for Germany (though they sometimes switch to a three). Silva has played in a back four more often than he's played in a three at both club and international level. 4-2-3-1 is the way I'd go... starting with Norwich.

    Not watching the game, but ref is listed as Mike Dean who's been around a while.

    Not sure the FA have much to complain about. https://www.skysports.com/football/news/11095/12437592/England-handed-wembley-stadium-ban-by-uefa-as-punishment-for-euro-2020-final-crowd-trouble

    Rudiger and Silva both trained today and are in contention to start on Wednesday.

    What would be nice is seeing the ball being moved quickly. We score few goals and create few chances because we allow teams the time to get 10 behind the ball with our incessant sideways passing. And then we invariably try to go through the middle, where it is most congested. These are ideal games to play fewer defenders & central midfielders who contribute little attacking threat, and more players who can create, score or stretch defences and put in crosses.

    I'm guessing that Tuchel wanting to press high results in Kanté - who can press and win the ball - playing high up, and Loftus-Cheek - who, for all his many attributes, I'm not sure knows what pressing is - playing deeper. As I said, just a guess.

    The Kepa we've seen this season - when used - is a different, more confident and more commanding version of previous Kepas!

    I believe Silva IS available as the rules regarding red lists, self-isolation etc have recently changed. Furthermore, Brazil is currently no longer on the UK's red list. So, so long as he takes a test 2 days after returning which says he's OK or is double-vaccinated, AND he doesn't show symptoms, he doesn't need to self-isolate.
