  1. Transfer Talk Topic

    His recovery runs alone should be worth a 3 year deal. More valuable than goals and assists I hear.

    A lot of Rudiger criticism on social media. Thought before the goals went in he had a few dodgy moments. I don’t think he was as poor as Azpi though. I can’t remember a time when it has been so easy to get the better of Azpi. He is losing more 50/50’s this season than I can remember. Could be a sign of a decline coming. In general I don’t think it makes much a difference who plays at the back I think they are all at a similar level and they all need a commanding CB next to them. In other news Willian has chosen the best time to announce he probably wont be signing a new contract. Wants a 3 year deal which is insane and the board are only offering him 2 years which is also insane. Wish we had taken Barca offers all those months ago but then again his average of 5 goals and 5 assists per season are needed for this year.

    To be fair to the board Ziyech has been a good start to 2020 window. What we need to stop doing is transfers that are not the managers targets. Can’t be letting the board spend £70M on a GK only for him to he benched by a 38 yr old who has played better than him since coming in. It’s crazy to do business like that. Targets at high prices must be the managers targets as the board can’t be building a team without the structure of the manager.

    Good post and very true. In terms of RLC no one thinks he will improve our midfield defensively or generally, it’s the attacking side of the midfield that he would help. He has better decision making and awareness than Barkley and Mount in the final third. If he can show last seasons form for next year then it would help us in the final third. As for the midfield it was obvious Jorginho just doesn’t cover enough defensively. I don’t even know where he was for the goals we conceded. It felt like they passed through our midfield easily. Some may like the Jorg and Kova pair but without the ball I think it is the worst midfield combination we have had under RA. It’s far too soft. Both players also lack positioning and roam around causing gaps in the middle of the pitch. I thought 3atb would maybe help them defensively but I don’t think any defence can be protected by those two. Sms is quality but a real DM is needed before him. GK and DM are the priority. Those two positions are crucial for the spine of the team.

    If it came down to Higuain Giroud and Tammy I know which two Sarri would pick. Barkley Kova and Mount. I know which two Sarri would pick. I’m not praising Frank for having common sense I am just stating what Sarri would have preferred. If people are fine with a 32 yr old Higuain and 33 yr old Giroud leading the line for us then that’s them but to be honest I am tired of seeing us choose short term over long term. We need to build and start looking at something long term. I don’t think Sarri was ever interested in doing that.

    This. Especially the bit about Gnarby. Tony Pulis said Gnarby would never be good enough for West Brom. Guess he had the last laugh.

    Do you believe he would have had Tammy over Higuain and Giroud? James over Azpi and Zappacosta? Mount would be behind Barkley. Everyone has enjoyed Tomori this season but he wouldn’t be in the team either under Sarri. Younger players would have left under him whether on loan or permanently. I can’t be asked to go on about Sarri as everyone here has talked about him but I have said before he wasn’t the right fit for what we are trying to do.

    I would give him 2-3 years of PL football. He has shown very good moments this year. Got to give him time to grow. He lacks temperament in his game but that can be improved on.
  9. Chelsea 0 Bayern Munich 3

    You could mould Giroud and Tammy into one player and Lewandoski would still be a better play than those two combined. He’s on a different level.

    And when was the start of the season? 6 months ago? You expecting him to develop into a finished product in 6 months? Where’s the patience Bison..

    Another example of Willian just not attacking the box.
  12. Chelsea 0 Bayern Munich 3

    Defenders stopped playing around 20 mins ago.
  13. Chelsea 0 Bayern Munich 3

    Funny enough we will probably play better in the 2nd leg when the pressure is off and we have nothing to lose or fear.
  14. Chelsea 0 Bayern Munich 3

    Christensen has actually outshined Azpi and Rudiger....
  15. Chelsea 0 Bayern Munich 3

    Coutinho can’t even get into this team. Says it all.
  16. Chelsea 0 Bayern Munich 3

    CL is just a different level of football. No matter what system we can’t beat this lot with what we have.
  17. Chelsea 0 Bayern Munich 3

    Azpi got caught in a bad position there which made Christensen commit. Quality experience football on show.
  18. Chelsea 0 Bayern Munich 3

    Great move to be fair not much you can do about that. Unfortunate with the slip.
  19. Chelsea 0 Bayern Munich 3

    Ffs pointless yellow Jorginho.
  20. Chelsea 0 Bayern Munich 3

    Need Willian to come on and carry the ball if we are going to play like this 2nd half as we will get tired quickly. A ball carrier gives us more counter opportunities.
  21. Chelsea 0 Bayern Munich 3

    We can pass the ball out well though. We also have 5 defenders so building from the back needs more patience. Long balls aren’t a bad idea when you are pressed into bad situations but we are playing long balls without any pressure sometimes. It’s giving them the ball back without them having to work for it.
  22. Chelsea 0 Bayern Munich 3

    When we show more character and pass it around we get through them. Just need more belief in our passing its too pessimistic with the long panic balls.
  23. Chelsea 0 Bayern Munich 3

    Great save.
  24. Chelsea 0 Bayern Munich 3

    Agreed, he is doing well but we look afraid to pass it around. Got to take risks and believe in our quality.

    Very good reading by Cabby there.
