  1. Transfer Talk Topic

    Not that we are necessarily in the market for central midfielders after adding a couple. I have happened to catch two Newcastle games this season at Swansea and Brighton yesterday. What a good young player this Mikel Merino looks. Typically brilliant Spanish midfielder. If anyone not had chance to watch him then look out for him when you get chance. Fantastic technical ability, rarely gives the ball away, skilfull and always seems to have time on the ball, but also very good when he has the ball in tight spaces. Very classy player, I really can't see why Dortmund have let him go. Its an area we are quite well stocked in now, but he could cut it at a much higher standing than Newcastle from what I have seen.
  2. Stoke City 0 Chelsea 4

    Don't get me wrong, Cahill has looked shaky this season, but in fairness its mainly when he has dallied on the ball in possession. He can be too indecisive and if you press him then you can get a lot of joy. I don't think his general defending has been too bad though. I would expect Atletico to press more than City, so I would probably favour Azpi, Luiz , Christensen in the Atletico match as all more comfortable on the ball. I just think the movement of city forward players could drag Rudiger all over the place on Saturday and I think Cahill would be the more solid option. He would give us more leadership at the back too, in a match where Luiz is going to be a huge loss.
  3. Official: Chelsea Sign Tiemoue Bakayako

    indifferent performance from Bakayoko on Saturday. Good powerful run to start off the first goal, good pressing which led to the third goal I think it was. The negatives are all things that are down to not being used to the pace of our league yet. First half, he was caught on the ball 3/4 occasions where he just wanted more time than he was allowed. He will get used to this though the more he plays, away from home he needs to have that greater awareness and decisiveness to his play. Impressed by him so far, I can't say I ever really noticed him that much in the Monaco team from last year, maybe due to having some many good players around him. Pleasantly surprised by him so far.
