    Pulisic played 127 games for Dortmund and has 31 international caps.
  3. Chelsea 1 Leicester 1

    Difficult game, especially after Wednesday and although it sounds a bit silly it is almost a must win, if we dont the pressure on Lampard will start to build. If everyone from Wednesday is fit and available I'd start the same team with the exception of Tammy. Unlike most I think he done ok when he can on and played well enough against United. The big difference from Giroud is his willingness to make runs, he's always looking to play on the shoulder of the last defender and get in behind and his pressing is far, far superior. Another reason I'd go with him is for his confidence. It was a big shout playing him away at Old Trafford so to not play against liverpool, come on miss a sitter, then a penalty and not play the next game could dent him a little. Like most strikers he's a confidence player, I just think he needs to score, the sooner the better. If we include pre season, which I know doesnt matter in the grand scheme of things but if we do he hasn't had the greatest start to the season. he's missed some very good chances when he really needed to hit the ground running. Sure the safe thing to do would be to start Giroud again but in the long term I feel Tammy has to get a run of games, if he hadn't started against United and then earned his way into the team by coming off the bench and starting lesser games it would be different but Frank went with him in one of our biggest games of the season and unless that was tactical or for fitness reasons I feel he has to keep faith, stick with him and reassess after a good run in the team. I've always felt Giroud is at his best coming on later in games when you are chasing a goal and adopt a more direct approach. He can be a weapon coming off the bench against tired defenders but for me he's never been the type of striker I'd want staring week in week out.

    Ok, I hadn't really looked very hard. As soon as he saved it I turned the tv off, can't stand watching that lot celebrate anything and haven't rewatched any of it. Anyway I found a far better image and as you say it clearly shows him a few inches off his line.

    I hope your right and really hope Dybala is still available. Absolutely gutted he was was up for grabs this summer yet we couldn't go for him. As for Zaha, I would have loved him a couple of years ago, seems to have stagnated a bit to me and hasn't really kicked on. If we did but him next year he would be nearly 28 and for the money involved I think we could do better and younger.

    Not the greatest quality but if he is off his line, there not much in it at all.

    Yo be fair, and I know I probably shouldn't be, isn't the rule that you have to have one foot on the line when the ball is kicked?

    I think it's a bit harsh on Kepa to blame him for the second penalty he 'should' have saved. Not many keepers would get anywhere near it. I think there's been a few since he's been here that he's had a bit of criticism for, being labelled limp twisted for example. I think he's almost a victim of his own ability, nearly making saves he has no right to get anywhere near. .
  9. Manchester United 4 Chelsea 0

    Well, on the one hand it was absolutely amazing to be there for Frank's first proper game, the atmosphere was something special and we played some good football at times, on the other we just got completely dicked by a joke of a football team, United were shambolic yet they've absolutely smashed us, not really sure what to make of it all. I hope some Chelsea fans have more patience than they have shown in the past, its gonna be a very long, VERY hard season. Super, SUPER Frank!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    At least we now know what you look like ;) As for VAR itself, anyone that hasn't already worked out it's only going to help the select few must have been living in a bubble the last couple of years. The commentary that goes alongside the replay whilst the decision is being looked at by VAR is embarrassing, it's as if they have been told the outcome before the replay has been shown so as long as they say they right things most brain washed football fans will agree with every decision. It's so corrupt it's not even funny.

    I agree, his supposed lack of passing is massively overstated, he looks very awkward but is nowhere near as bad some make out, sure he's no David Luiz but not many are. I dont think he will cause us any problems whatsoever with his passing, if he's good enough is a different matter although if I remember rightly before he done his ACL he looked very promising.

    Love Luiz, absolutely love him and gutted he's leaving but I dont think it's going to cause us any problems. didn't we have to lose a non home grown player anyway? Maybe it's just a case of him being the easiest to move on.

    Skriniar is the one.

    I agree completely that it's all fairly meaningless, pre season is what it is. It's about getting fit for the start of the season. What I would say though is that I thoroughly enjoyed watching it. I thought we pressed high up the pitch and did it very well and played some good football. Nothing to get carried away with but some encouraging signs. Singling out individuals is pointless, we've seen so many over the years have a really good pre season only to do absolutely nothing later on, BUT I can't help but be incredibly excited about Mason Mount, he's so confident in his own ability and everything about him just oozes class. I have a sneaky feeling he's going to start the season as our 'number 10' and think it will be very difficult for anyone to take it away from him. I dont want to get carried away, it's so early not just for Lampard but also a lot of the players, but I am incredibly excited by the prospect of seeing Pulisic-Mount-CHO behind our new number 9. It may not work, they may not be good enough but I'm fairly confident we will see us line up like that in a number of games this season, even if its cup games I think it will happen and that is something that I can't wait to see.
