    So many pundits and players coming out with plans around how players can finish season in the summer when (if) covid threat recedes. What most people are forgetting is that none of the players would be match fit and if anything it will again increase the chances of injury. For the season to start again clubs will need atleast 2-3 weeks of training. With that in mind I dont think EPL or any league can return before June.. But my thoughts right now are far away from when football restarts, we in my country are now entering the critical phase where Community Spread will start anytime. Hope people take precautions for themselves and others.
  2. I dont know yet if Frank is an average manager but some of our results are simply down to players making the wrong decisions.. Now to highlight there is a moment in the second half where Rudi is trying to play offside and steps up.. and since he is the player on the outside there has to be a shout to Zouma or Zouma needs to pick it up.. But instead Zouma tries to cover the run.. giving the second striker a free run playing him on... thank lord for Reece's covering run which saved our blushes... This particular play sums it up for me... you can't coach that.. one of the two needs to try to link up... you can put it down to player quality / not playing together enough.. etc..but the fact is these are the kinds of errors that are costing us..
  3. Squad Status: 2022/23 Season

    long way to go but think the last 4-5 games are a perfect caricature for the season. Honestly looking across the board we just dont have enough quality in key areas or on the bench to be more consistent.. I think top 4 will be a big over achievement. Top 6 is a more realistic target for us..
  4. Transfer Talk Topic

    FIFA is one of the most corrupt not for profit organisations in the world.. ffs having a World Cup in Qatar in June! The conspiracy theorist in me says given the property and perks FIFA enjoys in Dubai it dare not go against their deputy PM

    true that.. doesnt affect me... I really respect his work at chelsea and understand from his perspective.. Non event apart from a rival singing a new coach mid-season which always a good sign in my opinion..
  6. Shay given was also of similar height but on his day was exceptional.. also I dont remember his ever being bullied in his penalty area.. also a model pro.. can only be positive one would assume without knowing the full backroom story .. that is - if there is one..
  7. sidwell and Boularouz was bought while JM was here and Benayoun was half a decade later!
  8. I am sure no one is happier than you given his recent performances.. but just underscores why we love the sport no one can write such a script..
  9. I think he needs to find a way to deal with opposition physicality in the box.. Unfortunately while he is decent shot stopper, good distribution and fairly consistent.. his inability to really command his area... does make us vulnerable to set pieces..
  10. Sean Dyche is a c**t for saying that about CHO .. why is he trying to knock down an 18 year old.. we all know how difficult it is shake off a reputation.. piss poor from a wannabe sam allardyce Good on Frank for highlighting how his big men were falling down and crying like children everytime they didn't win the ball... I think his pride was hurt on the relegation tactics that his team used and still got stuffed 4-2 and he just wanted to divert the attention.. Also the referee was very poor in not using the monitor before issuing a yellow card... its crazy how reluctant these refs are to use technology but are happy to make a mistake.. Its simple at that pace when you are running even a little shove can knock you off balance.. yes it may not be enough to give a penalty.. but a dive very questionable and only CHO knows... But the broader point is that unlike other sports .. say like cricket the refs/umpires still use technology in a run out situation even if the batsman is miles in .. these refs have too big an ego that is also showing up the ref.. Maybe they are worried that they lose their jobs as onfield refs 20/30 years down the line to bots and tech.. who knows but use the technology that the FA spends millions implementing and training you on.. another sham another match!
  11. what is the point of this post.. given this actually was a very positive comment and shows the mentality of the lad .. instead of throwing his toys out and saying I will look for a move if this continues (what the media wanted him to say).. he actually said I will work harder to change lamps mind...
  12. This ^ I think some people have an opinion of a player before he joins and then every game where the player does shine is a stick to beat him with... Yes he did not do great yesterday.. but he also was unplayable against liverpool in the supercup.. he is young player there will always be games like this... he is adjusting in a new league plus had start - stop game time... as per numbers neither willian nor pedro have been great last 2-3 years yet managers tended to select them.. which tells me wing play is more than just numbers.. I still like the basics - Workrate, Pace, Dribble and a good cross.. rest of the attributes will develop.. give the lad a fair chance before you slate him.... atleast a decent sample size? but basics of wing play are still there.. he has
  13. Individual mistakes are letting us down again and again.. :(.. especially in big games.. plus I think with SFL as was in his career nothing will come easy or with luck.. carry on gaffa.. tide will turn..
  14. Surely this was a game for him then..
  15. Considering how the entire media was on chelsea's back with CHO wasnt playing.. why are they silent on Phoden.. ?
