  1. Chelsea 2 Arsenal 2

    Barkley is the midfield version of Bats. Both are generally very poor footballers that never really see the full picture. Bats just plays in a position where he can get away with more because goals can cover up his liabilities.
  2. Hull City vs Chelsea

    I wonder what Bulka thinks now. Looked decent in pre season last year. Heard some good things about him. I would try and loan him back for 6 months. His decision to go to PSG was an odd one.

    Lewandoski vs Kepa......
  4. Chelsea 2 Arsenal 2

    Never managed to hit double figures in either assists or goals in the PL. They would be crazy to play him over Moura or Son.
  5. Chelsea 2 Arsenal 2

    It’s funny all this talk about Kante and still no one mentions that he has a better goal scoring ratio than Willian since 2018/2019. One of them is supposed to be our best attacker playing as a forward while the other one ruins all our attacks and makes us rubbish.....
  6. Chelsea 2 Arsenal 2

    that makes no sense as it was CHO who played on the right all game next to Kante and was better than Willian on the left. The right hand side linked up better than the left. It was causing them far more problems. I don’t remember CHO playing on the left unless coming short for set pieces. They barely switched sides all game with CHO being our best player next to the terrible Kante!

    Kante is the reason why we don’t live up to the xG and score enough goals? He has a better goal ratio than Willian since last season.
  8. Chelsea 2 Arsenal 2

    He was poor for the Newcastle goal. He isn’t facing a lot of shots against him. We are top 3 in least shots faced. He had a good game against Brighton and Bournemouth. I wouldn’t call it better form though as it isn’t really consistent.
  9. Chelsea 2 Arsenal 2

    Kepa is not to blame for the 2nd goal but don’t you think he can save that goal? He was inches away from it in the end but looking at the replay if he shifts to the right when Bellerin puts it on his left he would save it.
  10. Chelsea 2 Arsenal 2

    How do you make an extra man count if you can’t stick the ball in the net? How many attempts do we need just to score 1 goal? Go and look at our last 10 games or so. We have more possession and more shots than our opponents nearly every game. Higher xG but yet we can’t seem to win games. But I guess that is all down to bad coaching right? Bad coaching is making teams like Norwich or Newcastle out play us and dominate the game.
  11. Chelsea 2 Arsenal 2

    But what would we be recovering from this season? Are we being outplayed in every game? Are we defending terribly and losing 4-0? For large parts of the game we are creating more chances yet we can’t score. I don’t know how we recover from that unless we add more creators and goal scorers to the starting 11. How do we go into every game knowing we will score more than the opponents when we only have one reliable goal scorer who is hitting poor form at the moment? Who is Lamps asking to score the goals for him? Asking Kante and Kova to attack the box is a waste of time. Both players don’t understand that side of the game neither are they goal scorers.
  12. Transfer Talk Topic

    That’s the worrying thing so many need to be cleared out. Also possible that Kante or Jorginho leaving in the future. I think both will over the next two seasons. We still have Ampudu and Gallagher to come back but we have many people to replace next season. Imo only Giroud, Pedro, Emerson, Cabby and a CB will be replaced in the summer. I don’t see us replacing all 9 players in 1 window. The rebuilding process will be very interesting.
  13. Chelsea 2 Arsenal 2

    I don’t even think it reaches 4-2. Once we go 2-0 up its a completely different game. If anything we would probably go on to score the 3rd with him in the side and it finishes there. But due to losing 50% of our goal contributions from last season the opposition stay in the game and prey on our nervous defence and GK. It’s odd that people forget that goals change games. Goals cover up City’s poor defence. If they scored 1 per game on average they wouldn’t make top 4 and would concede way more than they do. But City always get that 2nd goal cushion which changes games. How many times this season have we had a two goal cushion for long periods of the game? It feels like there is always one goal in it for the majority of the match. Even if we had won this game 2-1 would the lads really feel good about it? 19 shots needed just to score two goals and one is even a Pen. I would feel pretty demoralised if I was in a team having 15+ shots per game and averaging 1 goal or less.
  14. Chelsea 2 Arsenal 2

    Don’t think so, not this season. The goals have simply dried up. Everyone is hitting the numbers you would expect them too. We started off well but eventually everyone’ numbers have caught up with them. You looked at the starting line up and wondered where the goals would come from. In the end it was a penalty and set piece. We are probably around a ratio of 1 goal per game and we are conceding in every game. There’s no getting out of this. Even another striker wouldn’t help much. I think a playmaker and a leader/captain are what we need right now.
  15. Chelsea 2 Arsenal 2

    That was the best tactically managed Arsenal I have seen for years. They played much more mature football than us. They waited for us to make mistakes rather than playing the same way when they had 11 players. Thats the best way to play against us. Stay in the game because Chelsea can’t score enough goals then wait for them to make a mistake at the back. Pretty easy gameplan. Newcastle did it to perfection. Many other teams will follow the same plan.
