  1. Chelsea 0 Porto 1 (2 - 1 on aggregate)

    Probably our best 11, although that's extremely harsh on Christensen who has been quite superb but realistically he probably doesnt start when everyone is fit, and the bench has so much depth and quality. Scandalous that we are struggling to finish in the top 4 when you see that match day squad.
  2. Official: Chelsea Sign Christian Pulisic

    Tuchel has only been here for 11 league games, 15 in total, Hudson-Odoi has started 6, Pulisic has 2. Overall Hudson-Odoi has started 9 out of 15, Pulisic 4. Sorry, but that's just not true. He missed 16 games in 4 years because of injury and made 127 appearances for them, by the age of 20. For comparison Tammy Abraham has missed 17 games through injury in the same period.

    Tried writing something like this earlier but just gave up so fair play to you, I could not be bothered to go into so much detail explaining what is so obvious. I am not sure why didierforever is getting so worked up over this. It really is quite simple, Billy Gilmour needs to play football and he is not. If he is going to continue to not play football here then he needs to go out on loan. It does not matter how good some think he is or how good he may or may not become he has to play football. On a side note I would like to know why he is not getting picked for Scotland, if he is half as good as some think he should be walking into their starting 11 but is nit even in their squad.

    Can you name the others that make up this squad full or the hundreds that you claimed in a previous post? Also can you name another club that has the number or quality of youth team players that we have playing for us right now? You may be able to get one player to a level without loaning them, much like we have with CHO but do you really think the club should have kept James, Tammy, Mount and Tomori all at the same time? We would have been lucky to see one of them on the bench, at best. We have a freak group of players that have come through at more or less the same time and there is absolutely no argument that what the club has done has worked, perfectly.

    The whole point though, to me anyway, is that they need to be playing regular first team football. The argument is not how good one player or another may be now or in the future its is said player better off going to the championship on loan and playing 50 odd games or spending a year here, training with the first team squad and getting the odd cup game? I see the benefits of being with the first team, I really do but at such a young age I cannot for the life of me see how that is more beneficial than playing regular football. And I'm not being funny but he can't even get in the Scotland squad so even they do not think he is that good or ready just yet.

    Really peculiar conversation going on here. Pretty sure what we are doing with our youth players is working better than any other club, probably in Europe, right now.
  7. Tammy Abraham

    21 goals in 37 premier league starts.

    I dont think we would need to bring anyone back and the most important thing for Billy Gilmour right now is playing football, something he is not doing anywhere near enough at the moment.
  9. Chelsea 2 Sheffield United 0

    14 games, 10 wins, 3 draws is a pretty good rhythm if you ask me and getting valuable minutes for other players can only be a good thing. What's even more important is it doesnt seem to matter who plays, including Kepa, we are keeping clean sheets. I may be wrong but there can not be more than a couple of occasions when we have kept the same back 5 for consecutive games.
  10. Chelsea 2 Sheffield United 0

    Maybe he did and maybe he is not that bothered. Finishing 4th and or winning the champions league will be far more important to him.
  11. Chelsea 2 Sheffield United 0

    Enjoyed that, tough game against a very physical, rejuvenated Sheffield United team who were far more like they were last season. Difficult and we maybe rode our luck but that was probably our toughest game under Tuchel and we came through it with yet another clean sheet. Winning games when you dont play well is more important than winning well. Sign of a very good team.
  12. So we shouldn't be talking about how well.we have started and get a little bit excited because Emery was **** at Arsenal? And our most successful for sometime. No it was fine and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Really doesnt change much though, some of us saw the flaws straight away, if it took some nearly 2 years then that's on them. Well absolutely yes. You think Hiddink and Grant taking over that team and doing well is the same as Tuchel taking over this team? Maybe or maybe not but I will enjoy what we are currently seeing and what will be will be. Tuchel wont be here long, of that there is almost no doubt but he will get plenty of praise for how he has started and rightly so, I'm not sure why you are so obsessed with the notion that he may go in the summer. It is absolutely nothing like Conte. It sort of makes the conversation pointless as I can not take you seriously now, it was hard before but now utterly pointless
  13. Nothing like conte , whatsoever. Anyone that thinks it is really not worth having a conversation with as it would show that they clearly do not watch us or have absolutely no idea what they are talking about.
  14. Absolutely, what's your point? Finished 3rd and won the Europa league? Not so sure about that, was saying it before we signed him. No, but completely different circumstances. Well, the norm is that when managers do well we keep them and when they dont we sack them the longevity of Tuchel will be the same as every other manager in that respect.
  15. Pretty sure I haven't said that. The start we have had under him is pretty outrageous. You took the stance from day one that he was only temporary and may not be here in the summer, constantly saying 'whoever the manager is in the summer' or words to that effect. Well I would have been right again wouldnt I? Although what I said about Sarri and Tuchel are two different things. And I was one of the first to claim this and say Lampard wasnt up to it but to turn it around so quickly is what is so impressive. Complete and utter domination of pretty much every game, including against some pretty big teams. Yet he had just over 24 hours to start implementing it and still now only been here just over 6 weeks which is what, roughly the length of a pre season? If we had made this start with any new manager in charge at the beginning of a season we would be ecstatic and think we had a good chance to win the league, or at least go very close. To do it half way through a season is quite remarkable.
