  1. Manchester United vs Chelsea

    In our six meetings with Olly as Utd manager we have only won once in the FA Cup last season. That was by allowing Utd more possession. I would go 4-3-3 for this with Jorginho, Kova and Kante in Midfield. Up top I would have Pulisic, Werner and Mount. Kai on the bench with Ziyech if fit.
  2. Chelsea 3 Southampton 3

    I think this is a fair post, it always seems to me from a betting perspective that things don't settle down until some point in mid November. With the shorter season, getting in players late and some being injured at the start will always make it harder. I saw it as a positive that Frank started with Werner up front and it paid off so he is looking to move us forwards yet still a lot to do.
  3. Chelsea 3 Southampton 3

    Very frustrating, very good going forward and yet poor defensively. The two players we bought to improve the defense were not played or injured. We have not addressed the defensive midfield position. Hassenhutl got the better of Lampard in the second half. Not the time to write off the season just to realize we are still a work in progress and need a couple more decent players.
  4. Olivier Giroud

    I prefer Giroud to Tammy yet Tammy is more mobile. I also think Giroud though unquestionably the better finisher has games where he struggles giving managers the chance to bench him for their preferred new prodigy.
  5. I agree with this and can only think with FFP we are being careful and once we are certain of losing a couple more players will likely swoop for a new player in the December window

    Yes and we see with an example like the Martial red card with no action being taken against Lamela that common sense has left the game.
  7. Taking The Pee Out Of Liverpool (For Khobar)

    A draw might be useful for us as much as I would like Liverpool normally to lose, we do not necessarily want Everton doing a Leicester on us do we?
  8. Taking The Pee Out Of Liverpool (For Khobar)

    Villa scored three goals with deflections including Barkley's and another goal looked suspiciously offside. Which is why though highly enjoyable I do think this is a freak result. Liverpool's next outing is at Goodison Park, you would like to think Carlo will have a game plan for them.
  9. Taking The Pee Out Of Liverpool (For Khobar)

    I caught about 50 mins of that and thoroughly enjoyed it. Barkley in a front three and scoring and Grealish was class today. Another chap called Watkins scored a hatrick though missed two of those. Liverpool without Allison, Mane and Henderson. Noticed Salah scored and looked threatening again though not enough today.
  10. Chelsea 4 Crystal Palace 0

    I thought the score was great and there were some great performance and notably that of Chilwell who for me was MOTD. I saw up to 74 mins so saw us go 2-0 up yet missed the penalties. I thought we made hard work of Palace with both Werner and Zouma missing opportunities and worse Palace looked threatening a couple of times from crosses though also could not hit the target. We struggled to breakdown Palace until the 50th minute, we had a lot of mis-passes in key areas and wrong decision making on the ball. Our breakthrough goal was from a Palace mistake with CHO intercepting the mispass and passing it quickly and after a few other messy touches Chilwell buries it. For me Werner needs to play centrally either as CF or No.10 Havertz was involved in some good play and was often coming deep to help bring the ball out of defence not sure if that was planned or not. CHO was frustrating, wrong decision making and mispasses at least up until 74mins. Tammy's ability in the air is poor and worse by going for the attacking ball probably puts off our other attacking players. With Chilwell crossing so well when we need points I think Giround we will needed. The penalties looked soft to me though not complaining.

    Barkley for me is probably slightly technically better than Mount, yet Mount plays on the front foot and his work rate is higher.
  12. Andreas Christensen

    I'm sure I heard recently that AC plays DM for Denmark. Could he do this for us? He is tall like Matic, reasonably quick, can play the ball and ok in the air and the tackle for a DM............
  13. Season expectations/predictions/peculiarities 2020/21

    If pushed for a position come season end I would currently plump for 4th again. However if we can bring in a player to get our midfield balanced I would go for 3rd. Don't see us yet in the top 2. Disappointed to see Barkley go on loan, hope it means we are brining in someone.
  14. I would go strong too, to try and help the first team get used to each other. I would go with Christensen again, I thought he did well at WBA just think he needs resting when playing against more physical attackers. The Kante, Kova combination has not always worked perhaps bring in Jorginho (reluctantly).
  15. West Bromwich Albion 3 Chelsea 3

    I don't think Frank can be judged until Chilwell and Mendy have had a few games. I also think we need a decent defensive midfielder and probably a decent right back. We are not going to get all of this resolved this window yet just the new keeper and LB should make a difference. What might be concerning though is if Frank is feeling the pressure so early and before even Chilwell and Mendy have started for us.
