    I've always been one of Lotus Cheeks biggest fans, I saw an awful lot of him coming through the youth teams and he was absolutely the stand and out player but he's nearly 24, the time to talk about his potential and ceiling has long passed.

    Chilwell probably wants a move to a bigger club. Any young English player that is looking for a move will be heavily linked with us. We are probably the most attractive team right now for them but I can't see this being anything other than paper talk. It's the one position which doesn't need strengthening. I'm waiting for the inevitable Jadon Sancho stories to start. I could see us being seriously interested in him and would imagine he would be very tempted. Sancho - Mount - CHO Abraham
  3. Tammy Abraham

    Big difference and whether or not you agree with it, and I absolutely hate it, that's modern day football.
  4. Tammy Abraham

    Went down easy? Yes Theatrical? Yes Diver? No For someone that has such a terrible reputation of diving its interesting there is literally nothing on YouTube.
  5. Tammy Abraham

    My recollection of Drogba's entire time here is that, and I've had this debate with an awful lot of people over the years, that you will struggle to find a single clip of him anywhere actually diving.Yes he went down easy and quite theatrically at times but there was always contact.
  6. Southampton 1 Chelsea 4

    It really is and doing it once was nice, chances of it happening again are slim. Winning it from the beginning is one thing, winning it after being knocked out of the Champions league, where you really want to be playing your football, is another. Also I'm not sure I can see the point in winning a second rate competition to enter the top competition, only to get knocked out and want to re enter the same competition we only want to win to get back to the one we just got knocked out of. It was good last year to win it, we knew we were going to be in it from the beginning of the season. Participating in it this year would be a failure and a huge come down.
  7. Southampton 1 Chelsea 4

    I expect a very convincing win today both in scoreline and performance. 3-1.
  8. Southampton 1 Chelsea 4

    I'd be suprosedif its not 4231 with Mount playing as the 10. I think it's how Lampatd has wanted to play this season but it's the first time we've had the right players fit to do it. Very close to being our best 11 I'd say.
  9. Lille 1 Chelsea 2

    I think he's being instructed to stay on his line, not sure the reason why but it's the only thing I can think of as he literally comes for nothing. I watched a fair bit of Derby last season but didn't notice either way if their goalkeeper did the same, maybe someone else can shed some light.
  10. Lille 1 Chelsea 2

    I dont like zonal marking at all but I think it would be almost impossible to man mark in today's game with VAR, we would concede so many penalties. It's something Frank touched on earlier in the season in one of his post match interviews.
  11. Chelsea 2 Brighton & Hove Albion 0

    He IS brilliant. Good performance, should have been a lot more. Thoroughly enjoyed the atmosphere in the MHL today, best it's been all season imo. I'm gonna say it again, like I have after every time he's played but it needs saying. Tomori is looking a bit special, I'm amazed as I never saw anything in him previously that made me think he had even a chance of making it here but right now he looks the real deal.
  12. Chelsea 1 Liverpool 2

    Incredibly proud today, a superb performance especially in the second half and we can count ourselves really unlucky not to come away with something. We've gone toe to toe with them twice this season and both times been the better side. Lots and lots of positives and plenty to build on. Each time I see him I say it but I dont think it can be said enough. Tomori is an extremely talented centre half. he's going to be some player.
  13. Chelsea 1 Liverpool 2

    Like you got it right about Sarri after a handful of games?
  14. Transfer Talk Topic

    We are a very lightweight team, that lacks leadership and physicality. We need the right type of players to address that. We need players that are not only physically strong but also have a strong mentality that know how to win. Also we need a proper captain. I love Dave as much as the next person but he's never been captain material yet he's arguably the best we have. Says everything about where we are right now. I dont care who these players are, I'm not into my football as much as I once was so unable to name names but I'm talking of players like Cech, Cahill, Terry, Ivanovic, Matic, Costa, Mikel who we have not come remotely close to replacing.
  15. Chelsea 1 Liverpool 2

    I think we need to line up as close to possible as we did against them in the super cup where we were clearly the better side and I'd say produced our best performance of the season so far. Frank found a way to not only compete with them but out play them on the night. Injuries permitting it would be utter madness to do anything different. If we play 343 the way we have been with Alonso and Azpillicueta pushed up high Liverpool will destroy us.

  17. Good to hear Mark, hope whatever it was is better now and your ok. Carefree!
  18. Chelsea 0 Valencia 1

    Never said they are rubbish but they really were last night. Should have smashed them.
  19. Chelsea 0 Valencia 1

    Terrible performance against a very bad side. Should have played 4231 and really gone at them. They were rubbish yet we created next to nothing. The only positive is Tomori, he looks very good and is unbelievably quick. I think he and Rudiger could become a formidable partnership.
  20. Wolves 2 Chelsea 5

    Good win, some good performances but I was absolutely amazed just how bad Wolves were. They were shocking. The amount of goals we are conceding, I'd be more worried about yesterday's 2 than any others this season as Wolves were that bad they shouldn't have got a look in, regardless of formation is a major concern. 11 in 5 league games is nowhere near good enough. Only Norwich have conceded more. Lots of work to be done but no doubt Kante and Rudiger getting back to full fitness will make a difference.
  21. Formation

    If Essien hadn't had his injuries he would have been one of the greatest midfielders the world had ever seen. An absolute one off, never seen anything like him. The 3 years we had when he was at his absolute best, that player would have got into any team of any era.
  22. Transfer Talk Topic

    Just wow. If your serious then you, quite frankly, have absolutely no idea what you ate talking about. Maybe we dont need any new members after all.

  24. Chelsea 2 Sheffield United 2

    I'm gonna just say it as it is. That was absolutely abysmal, one of the worst performances I have seen at the bridge for a very, very long time. Dont care about the circumstances that was nowhere near good enough.
