    He's scored 6 already this season.

    I've never been so pleased to see a break from the PL. I honestly don't mind if we get knocked out, the main focus has to be the league. Rest players for Leicester, that has to be the priority, except for Kepa, need to try and play him into some kind of confidence and form.

    Oh, I didn't realise that - that's annoying. For me, he is the type of personality we could do with getting in though. We obviously need someone can stick the ball in the back of the net, but I think they also need to add a bit of a fear factor and leadership to our squad. January is always very difficult to buy in, especially for any value, but the club need to get something sorted somehow.

    Perhaps we could tempt Diego Costa back on a short term deal, especially if Cavani does go to Atletico. May not be quite the player he was, but he is exactly the sort of personality we lack out on that pitch every week - give teams something to fear again. Wishful thinking I know and I'm sure many will disagree with me, but I'd take him back on a 6 month loan for sure. Cavani I can't see coming here, I don't see us paying those wages and I don't actually think he'd be that interested. Spanish or Italian league much more suited to his game, especially this late in his career. I just hope, I really do, that we've got something lined up and we're just getting it finalised - we have to get another striker in and ideally another creative player, but I think that one is now waiting until the summer.

    Yep, we've got ourselves into such a mess with our squad and Frank has a massive job on his hands trying to manage this rebuild through. It is going to require some serious patience and very good scouting. I think we will bring someone in January, I think the club will be realising we at least need a short term option or two to try and get us back on track if they really want top 4 this season. If they're happy with just top 6 at this early stage of the rebuild, then they may not - but I think they will. A loan possibly, or a short term contract for an older player.

    I don't even know what to say anymore. Our game management last night was shocking - I can forgive our young and more inexperienced players, they're still learning the game at this level and this season and games like this will be teaching them a lot, but the likes of Azpi, Willian, Rudiger, Jorginho... our so-called leaders, where are they? Why are they not demanding someone kick the ball off when Tammy is hobbling around in the build-up to our goal or not just smashing the ball clear. I don't get it? We lack so much mentally. Our signings over the next 2 windows are so key, we don't just need talent, we need some leadership out there. Not for his talent, but I would give anything to have Henderson in our squad right now. We are desperate for some leaders. Positives from last night, IMO, CHO looked good for a lot of the game, worked hard defensively when needed and caused problems going forward. Kovacic back in makes a difference, he really is a very good player. That's probably about it, to be honest. I agree with so many saying we need a striker, we do, but it won't be any use if we continue to be unable to create decent chances for our strikers.

    I think he's had some better performances recently and to be honest, with Pulisic out we don't have many choices. We could put Mount out left and Willian on the right I suppose, which has worked well before...
  8. Chelsea 2 Arsenal 2

    United and Spurs will pick up 3 points in this GW, so we must do the same, after not capitalising again at the weekend. Personally I would pick the following for Arsenal tomorrow: Kepa Azpi Rudiger Christensen Emerson Kante Jorginho Kovacic Willian Tammy CHO Bench: Caballero, Alonso, Tomori, Barkley, Mount, Pedro, Bats

    Well, that was incredibly frustrating. Yes, we dominated, but we dominated without ever looking like scoring. We just could not create true clear chances - we created a couple of decent chances, but nothing clear. I felt for Tammy yesterday as the service was poor at best and he had almost nothing to play off. Willian had one of his games that just backs up what so many say about him and why so many, including myself, get so frustrated with him - he's a great player when he wants to be, but he has way too many off days for my liking and yesterday really was one of them. You could tell very early on, for whatever reason, Willian just didn't fancy it and he therefore never got going. It's tricky for Frank though, as with Pulisic out the only other alternative is Pedro who has barely played and when he has, has not looked close to the player he was. Mount was also poor yesterday, but I can forgive his inconsistency because of his lack of experience, but Frank should have spotted it earlier and got him off for Barkley, who I thought did ok when he came on. Why wasn't Kovacic involved? I would have started him, so for him to not even come off the bench just baffles me. The goal, you can blame Kepa all you want, but I'm firstly not sure he can come for that ball because he must expect our defenders to clear it, but more importantly, why on earth are we letting them get that cross in at that stage of the game?! I don't want us to sign players just for the sake of it, but the scouts, coaching staff and board really need to get busy before the end of this window, trying to identify targets that are good enough that we could get in, because we are seriously lacking goal-scoring players - we are currently relying almost only on Tammy, which is madness. Had we not had a few other crap results this season, I'd be able to write it off as just one of those games, which is probably what it is, but it's just simply not good enough. When our young RB is MOTM, something isn't right. Let's hope he isn't badly hurt.

    Ha, yes true. 'Cutie' got a feeling that might stick around here, love it

    Walks into Transfer Talk Topic... realises it's the Conte topic (again!) instead....
  12. Official: Reece James Signs New Five And A Half Year Contract

    So pleased with this, a serious talent and seems like a really decent guy too.
  13. Transfer Talk Topic

    I bet Chelsea is really frustrating them, they expected so many transfers and were so confident they could throw enough names around and 1 or 2 would be right... but it turns out, the club may make to moves in this window at all.

    In my bedroom with my brother, radio on listening to the football whilst playing SWOS on the Amiga... great memories!

    They do give us an excellent chance, but those teams will all see them as a chance to close the gap on us, so not going to be easy games. If we win those 4, then I'd feel very confident about top 4. I do think Leicester will begin to drop away a bit, I think it's starting to catch up with them a bit. That said, I still think they'll get top 4, but we could close the gap at least. Anyway, this season doesn't count with VAR being such a joke, so ever happens to win the title, it won't really count ;)
