  1. Manchester United 4 Chelsea 0

    Defence has gone to sleep.
  2. Manchester United 4 Chelsea 0

    Surely not Pedro.
  3. Manchester United 4 Chelsea 0

    Hard to say Barkley has been awful. Out of position against the best defensive RB in the league. Complete mismatch.
  4. Manchester United 4 Chelsea 0

    Been much the better team. Just one silly moment or two. Both United chances came from a misplaced pass from Zouma and a bad tackle. Other than that they have created nothing. Hit the post twice. Barkley on the wing seems a waste. Pedro still dilly dallying on the ball in central positions which is really annoying. Hard to see why Pulisic was not chosen over him. I thought it was going to be a 442. Much better suited with these players on the pitch. Keep Pedro away from the defence.
  5. Manchester United 4 Chelsea 0

    Bring off Pedro and Zouma at HT. Zouma is a potential red and Pedro has lost the ball more times than he has kept it.
  6. Manchester United 4 Chelsea 0

    One of the best halves I have seen from Jorginho.
  7. Manchester United 4 Chelsea 0

    Can’t see what Barkley offers us as a winger.
  8. Manchester United 4 Chelsea 0

    He is not smooth on the ball but defensively he does not usually make tackles in the box like that.
  9. Manchester United 4 Chelsea 0

    I think Zouma looks nervy. He is a better player than this.
  10. Manchester United 4 Chelsea 0

    Zouma is really rusty.
  11. Manchester United 4 Chelsea 0

    Seems more like a 442 diamond. Pedro playing with Tammy. 4231 seems less likely if both Barkley and Mount start but you never know. Good line up shame about Kante felt we needed him today.
  12. Official: David Luiz Joins Arsenal

    Something happened behind the scenes. Eventually we will start to get more pieces of what happened. The fact we took such a low price and did not really negotiate with Arsenal to increase it shows we seemed desperate to sell him asap. I don’t think he was always 4th choice CB, something probably happened that made him become that low in the pecking order. No one has said anything to him on social media either. Press conference will be interesting today.
  13. Transfer Talk Topic

    I am sure Arsenal fans will be buzzing at first when they make a good start to the PL but when they start seeing his lapses of concentration all that buzz will go away. If rumours are true and he fell out with Lampard and caused a bit of drama then I would be disappointed in him but not surprised. I have always gotten a very arrogant vibe with Luiz and I can imagine him challenging managers. It is not the first time I have heard this anyway. His popularity may have gotten to his head. Be interesting to see how Willian and Azpi take the news. Also going to be interesting if they lose places in the starting 11. Azpi will take it like a man but Willian not so sure about especially after this. If Lampard has to keep chucking out more that don’t show respect then I am fine with it and completely back him.

    Even with a transfer ban we still manage to have a dramatic transfer window.
  15. Transfer Talk Topic

    I wouldn’t sell directly to rival. I didn’t like the Cech move at all but I understood it. Unless there has been a physical fight or something serious I would rather let him rot than sell him to Arsenal. Considering we have a ban and for him to try and force a move so late I find it rather selfish.
  16. Transfer Talk Topic

    More reporters from UK are now saying it as well. Where did that come from if true? He just signed a two year deal.. Even if Lamps told him he is 3rd choice that would still surprise me as he is one of the leaders and was only talking about looking forward to the season few weeks ago. Also, Arsenal? Really? If he really refused to train at his grown age then I would let him rot for two years.

    I agree on most of what your saying but teams that struggle to make it out the bottom half are in relegation battles for some parts of the season they only start to pull away towards the end. I just can’t see us being that low unless we completely down tools. Seeing us 11-13th positions for most of the season would be odd and way below what we can achieve.
  18. Borussia Mönchengladbach 2 Chelsea FC 2

    I don’t remember people saying we will struggle to finish in the top 10 last season. If Hazard was still here I doubt people would be saying that now. I don’t know where all the doom and gloom has suddenly come from to suggest we are going to become Bournemouth and struggle to get out of the lower half of the table. That is practically a 30-40 point swing. We have average strikers I know that but we probably have the 3rd/4th best midfield along with probably the 5th best defence on paper. It will be a bumpy season but I think we have more talent than people are suggesting. I can understand saying we may finish 7th or so but saying struggling to make top half like it is a miracle is almost calling us a relegation team. In this league anyone can pull your pants down if they catch you on the right day. Palace and Newcastle beat City last season.
  19. Borussia Mönchengladbach 2 Chelsea FC 2

    Could have been 6-3 or something crazy like that. We are creating chances which I thought we may struggle with a bit but defensively we are worse than I thought we would be. We don’t have that pressing game sorted out yet. Something needs to be sorted out with the pivot and CB. Too many gaps between both even in the 2nd half it was there at times but they did not expose it as much. If we can sort out that defensive part we could be an interesting team this year.
  20. Borussia Mönchengladbach 2 Chelsea FC 2

    Explain how we have been finishing in the top 6 then for the past few years if we are a 12th position team? Lemme guess Hazard carried us without him we would be 12th or something silly like that? So we are just a one man team?
  21. Borussia Mönchengladbach 2 Chelsea FC 2

    What on earth was that Barkley.
  22. Borussia Mönchengladbach 2 Chelsea FC 2

    But to say that we will struggle to finish in the top half is exaggerating. This team is not a 12th position type of team. Your basically saying we are the same level as someone like Bournemouth.
  23. Borussia Mönchengladbach 2 Chelsea FC 2

    The difference in crossing we will see when CHO and Reece James come back..
  24. Borussia Mönchengladbach 2 Chelsea FC 2

    Thats two sitters for Tammy...
