  1. Fulham 0 Chelsea 1

    Thanks for keeping me honest. I have been disappointed with him more times than not though on Saturday he did look like he was up for the game and was certainly energetic and progressive. Its the best he has looked for some time, not sure if that is him feeling the injury is now well in the past or like I said earlier just excited by the prospect of playing 10 man Fulham. I would think there is a good chance he will start at Leicester.

    CHO looked good yesterday yet lets not forget he came on against 10 men and a goal up. To judge him fairly he needs a full 90 mins and he may get that as I agree with some others that currently it is not happening for Pulisic.

    I think if Frank falls this season it will be Allegri that comes in. I think today our match is the biggest story as Utd and Liverpool play tomorrow, so expect all media eyes to be looking to Craven Cottage in the hope of a shock for something to play on.

    I don't think there is anything in the Grant rumour yet if true they must think Frank is losing the dressing room.
  5. Fulham 0 Chelsea 1

    I've watched a bit of Fulham. Parker is making them tougher to beat and their star attacking player is Lookman, decent on a 1-1 basis and capable of a wonder striker on his day. I'm hoping that Havertz will start to get on to crosses by running into the box in support of Giroud. We saw yesterday he can produce a decent header.

    I think it is a fair point, I have enduring memories of Victor Moses tearing down the right wing and knowing that he could not cross seemed bizarre. We did look very organised and with Fabregas being able to find Costa or Hazard it seemed to work and lets not forget Luiz could also produce a decent pass too. I think as much as us being organised the opposition was less so and also caught out by how well we used the 3 at the back which was a novelty for most clubs at the time.

    Do you have any explanations for that? I could guess at the economy and perhaps there being a lack of money flowing into the clubs from corporate sponsors and fans not being able to afford to attend yet that might be too simplistic.

    Yes and it is disappointing too.

    Looks to me like City have turned a corner. De Bruyne's form is rapidly improving, John Stones with Rueben Dias besides him locks rejuvenated. Cancelo looks a class act and Fernandinho is looking fit again. Yet with all the above it took two set pieces to overcome Utd.
  10. Fulham 0 Chelsea 1

    With Werner in poor shooting form and Frank's position likely under threat I would start Giroud.

    Giroud for me has also been used as a player off the bench rather than the preferred striker. He is a strong threat at the near post from crosses and when we get corners he seems to assist other players like Zouma by creating space for them. Generally good around the box if he space. So in effect has two attributes. I agree Costa and Drogba were our best strikers since RA got involved with the club. Torres is difficult to judge, a number of possibilities; was he overshadowed by Drogba, injury problem, players not playing the ball into his stride, mental issue? Eto only lasted a season and was decent, fast movement both on the shoulder and with interplay. With Werner by us throwing in crosses from out wide, it does not play to his strength, unlike Giroud he is not good at either post and the crosses are rarely in that space between the last defender and the keeper. So he rarely gets the ball with any space or time in the box.
  12. I liked that Gundogan goal too, moved the ball quickly and turned and shot crisply, thinking it has been a while since we had a striker that could do that. To be fair Hazard or Costa probably could. For me we do have the odd shot taker like Mount that is getting closed down most of the time. We do have Kante and Kovacic who shoot poorly and neither Pulisic or Werner are actually shooting well just now.
  13. There was certainly one match when they were playing well in 2015 under Wenger when a certain Diego Costa decides to use the dark arts and we prevail Costa's fight vs Gabriel 2015 Chelsea vs Arsenal 19 09 2015 Bpl |hd - YouTube
  14. Perhaps it was shock we were going to play offensive against City with that team. I sometimes think Frank's football ideology gets in the way of the results business.
  15. Tammy Abraham

    To be brutally honest I don't see Tammy as being of premier league standard. He is 6'3 and can't direct a header. If he is marked tightly he cannot hold up the ball. He can run onto a ball yet he offers very little compared to a more orthodox striker. There are also times when he seems in danger of tripping over his own legs.
