  1. Chelsea vs AFC Bournemouth

    Two further considerations, should we beat Bournemouth and make it to the semis that would make us more attractive again to any January targets we are after. The second point is about maintaining the winning mentality.
  2. Chelsea vs AFC Bournemouth

    It's tricky as we all know you can easily say throw this one away and prioritise the FA Cup and Europa yet then with the FA Cup draw you get either City or Liverpool away and then likely you have just the EFL. We could buy in January which will give us better options on the pitch too, to challenge on multiple fronts.

    I think the hunger has gone and he did not work hard enough at Man Utd apart from a few selected matches. The question is whether he can get motivated for another challenge or will just try and land an easy payday.
  4. Europa League

    I think so too which if correct means both Spurs and Liverpool have a better chance in the League and domestic cups.

    I would guess this refers to supra-national bodies pushing their aims through democracies, the aims can be advanced by both the commonly known Left and commonly known Right. Since the 90's in the UK via the Blairites and current leadership of the Tories. The current Corbynites are hard to read probably because they have both groups in their mix and aren't clear how to position themselves on that and see no political gain to do that at this moment. The supra-national bodies are thought to be pushing agendas restricting individual liberties yet are often led by people with very questionable habits or pasts.

    That could be next as Taffy and Jock have been sidelined yet let's hope if they take this step they ban rent boy too.
  7. Chelsea 2 Manchester City 0

    I agree with that, I thought initially with Luiz there might be an outlet yet good teams also cut that out. My thinking is if they are pressing so intently then they are short somewhere else and you need the ability to take advantage of that. We fail to do that or Sarri might be discouraging it and thus remain predictable.
  8. Wolverhampton Wanderers 2 Chelsea 1

    Wolves are without Ruben Neves so we really should take three points as he is one of their stars. Come on Chelsea concentrate please.
  9. Alvaro Morata.

    I fancy Callum Wilson might do well for us though we might need to 'break the bank' in January to bring him to us, Bournemouth will want a top fee in January to get a decent replacement. The others I feel do not suit our style though Glenn Murray has caught my eye yet Brighton's survival largely depends on his finishing.
  10. Alvaro Morata.

    I agree there is not a glut of top strikers yet seeing Aubameyang scoring 10 so far this season does suggest with good scouting improvements can be made.
  11. Transfer Talk Topic

    The way younger players are demanding assurances of playing time suggests some will go this season. For me then the contract they leave on is important, we should be looking to get first refusal or percentage profit on future players transfers.
  12. Tottenham Hotspur 3 Chelsea 1

    Agree a draw isn't a bad result though think we will win.
  13. Transfer Talk Topic

    Pusilic is being linked, I checked out the youtube for him 17/18 and looks a good right-sided forward for both assists and goals. An added dimension was that in that clip he provided three assists for our own MIchy Batshuyai.

    With this in mind it will be interesting for the next window if we don't buy anyone who we actually let go.
  15. Do the top 4-5 European Clubs like his brand of football, I doubt it. Yes he has been successful and there will always be a club that acquires a wealthy owner and that wants to win something yet I think the pool of suitors would be smaller.
  16. Chelsea 0 Everton 0

    I would actually like Kante to sit out a couple of times to see if we actually improve, I'm not convinced in this system he makes us better.
  17. Squad Status: 2018/2019 Season

    I think a little differently, agree on Drinkwater and Moses. Think RLC will go if we get more cover in midfield, I have read a rumour about Lozano. Think Ampadu will stay yet Christensen will be sold. With Morata's form and now even Giround scoring do not think we will risk a big outlay on a new striker in January.
  18. Media / Press

    I expect them to lose though Mourinho to make a match of it. Despite a lot of fans wanting him out while he is getting results like the one against Juventus and as long as he keeps bouncing back they will stick with him at least this season. Of course Mourinho's habit of having strange moments where he 'loses' self control might also curtail his time at Utd
  19. Transfer Talk Topic

    Wilson looks a good finisher yet he is a first team striker for Bournemouth so I don't seeing us getting him for less than £50m. I think he also plays in a two with Josh King who also looks reasonable, would either be able to transfer their form to Chelsea in a different set up? Would they need to play regularly to maintain their form? Morata seems to be coming back to form at the same time and Giroud has just scored. I read one article linking us to Lozano of PSV which I thought might have some thing in it as he seems to me a Sarri type player.
  20. Chelsea 3 Crystal Palace 1

    True, though I was thinking of Alonso rather than Cahill though see your point in relation to Azpi's CB role when he was hitting those crosses. It just seemed criminal that we could only hit decent crosses to Morata from the right side.
  21. Chelsea 3 Crystal Palace 1

    Yes it is rather obvious and when Azpi was hitting those deep crosses last season it worked well until the res tof the league noticed it. I could never quite work out why we could not cross for him from the left too.
  22. Chelsea 3 Crystal Palace 1

    I also have question marks over RLC and Barkley. Barkley appears to be the better fit just now though RLC can play further forward. I think RLC played well for Palace and am not sure if that is because of Hodgson or just feeling he was an important of the Palace side compared to us where he is on the periphery. Moses I think overperformed under Conte though rarely did he put in a quality cross or end product and that is more obvious now we have more possession. Hope if we don't use him he finds another decent club
  23. Chelsea 3 Crystal Palace 1

    On MOTD Gullit couldn't understand why Morata was not getting better service. He said our other forward players wanted to cut inside rather than cross when you have one of the best strikers in the air. He said occasionally you would cross from wide yet as this was the exception Morata often then found himself out of position.
  24. Chelsea 3 Crystal Palace 1

    Thought we played well as a team today. We controlled Zaha for most of the match sometimes doubling up on him. Didn't spot how Townsend was put through yet he took it well. The important thing was we responded. Morata took his goals well and the attempt 1 on 1 was at least on target. Pedro played well and took his goal well too. Thought defensively goal apart we played generally well. In MF both Kante and Barkley made errors. Kante did close down well though. For me Jorginho rarely touched the ball yet Luiz was distributing the ball well from defence, Willian was lively and unlucky not to score though not as effective as against Burnley. Hazard looked immediately more effective. A good day in the office though room for improvement!

    Surely the club should consult the members first?
