On my way back fro today’s match. Superb all round performance and a good warm up for our Champs league midweek game.
I have said it before but I do think it’s worth repeating, this lad Morata reminds me so much of the King.
So many good performances and I’m still convinced we will be the team to put pressure on City as the season progresses.
I leave on Monday afternoon for the Carrier bags game. I understand the booze is cheap but the food is very average. Looks like I will have to drink more than eat!

That was an easy win against a potentially awkward team and the perfect opposition for Fabregas to show his range of passes and he did. Possibly man of the match until you look at Hazard and I thought he stole it. He looked fit, sharp and I think Morata and him are enjoying the rapport that is developing. I would like to see Bayakoko rested if Drinkwater is fit, for some reason he seems to be flagging. Only a short appearance but in that time Willian losing the ball one way or another was turning into an epidemic.

You have a way of turning every positive performance into a negative c1955! Why not just occasionally stick to the good that happened.

G8: Take those rose tinted glasses off for heaven's sake. There is 'always' room for improvement and all eleven did not play to their best and I highlighted one who looks jaded and another who has completely lost his way.

want to change that score?

Yeah, thinking 4-0, hazard brace, lol but in all seriousness that did not seem like a pulis team. That’s him gone, was easy after the first goal, Liverpool next in the league, salah v alonso 😬.

Good write up Ed really enjoyed it. I agree with most of what you said have some points to share though

Firstly, Solanke, I think it’s too early for him. Sturridge I’d fit should be in the squad in my opinion.
Secondly, Thé choices for defensive midfield bar Henderson is bang average, obviously i know it’s a lack of options I think playing a 3-4-3 you really need solid defensive midfielders and the options aren’t great. I think Winks should be before Livermore, Dier is better as a centre back in my opinion but the lack of options would force him to obviously be a starter there, perhaps if fit Wilshere could do a job there as well. I think that could be the weakest point in the squad but for me I’d go with Henderson, Dier, Winks and one of Wilshere/ Drinkwater.

Then again that’s an opinion looking from outside as I’m not British. 😁.

{Ed001's Note - it wasn't me who wrote this article mate, it was MK Scouser from the Liverpool site. I will have to tell him to check around as there are quite a few responses on the various sites.}

Hi ELI, thanks for reading mate. Just to clarify why i ditched Sturridge (as i am a Liverpool fan literally wearing a shirt with his name as i write this! ) . I like Sturridge but he needs a run of games to get going. He is not going to get that this season at club level. Sturridge also offers pretty much nothing from the bench. He takes 20 minutes to get into a game and by then it's usually game over. I just think Tammy and Solanke offer a bit more pace and power than Sturridge which can be used to get at a tiring European/ South American defence who are not used to facing that kind of player.

Totally agree with you regarding midfield. I would have Loftus-Cheek starting alongside Henderson, with Winks and Drinkwater asback ups. Dier would be in defence instead of Maguire for me. Sadly, Southgate wants to play with 3 centre backs, and then put one in midfield just in case we aren't already boring enough! He is not adventurous enough to put RLC in midfield like i would. He only dares to play creative players higher up so he can focus on having an ultra defensive midfield.

I will add though that Wilshere is a bad egg in my books. He will either get sent off, throw a strop, try to do too much, or get injured. He needs to grow up and listen to his coaches or he'll be in the Championship by 28 years old.

As a side note, i really hope your lads Loftus-Cheek and Abraham get picked. They look fantastic.

So many rumours about ancelotti lined up for next year, couldn't think of anyone worse, loved him and gutted when he left but times have moved on. His not the man we need, backwards step.

Agree0 2Disagree

Do not believe we will move for ancelloti. But sadly I can see Conte leaving. There are very few managers who would be a step forward from Conte or even same level. manager. anyway I really like Sarri of Napoli.

I am dreading the arrival of Slutsky.

Agree1 1Disagree

16 Nov 2017 12:06:55
I was also worried about RA's grooming of Slutsky for English football but that venture has not gone well and he is reported to be negotiating a return to Russian football.
We don't want to go down the Avram Grant route.

Watched the Italy debacle last night, two things were abundantly clear after that.
1. We dodged a massive bullet when we missed out on Cadreva. He absolutely average to poor.
2. Again abundantly clear was do not waste money on Bellotti. Again ok he didn't come on till late but, there was nothing that made me think we need him.
This was just my opinion on what I saw, I wondered if I was alone in this view.

Agree1 2Disagree

14 Nov 2017 22:52:14
I'm also glad we didn't go for Belotti, at least for the prices thrown around last summer. He might turn out to be the real deal but at the moment a club would be paying a huge premium on hype.

Agree0 2Disagree

15 Nov 2017 19:33:25
Huge amount of money for a player who’d only had one good season. I worry if we buy a partner for morata and play 352 then what about hazard? Think money can be spent on winger/ inside forwards, carrasco Fekir Pulisic? Not sure if other wingers tbh.

Agree0 1Disagree

One for the teenagers: Belotti reminds me of Tony Cottee - and Tony Cottee was never good enough for Chelsea even when we were shite!

all this Loftus-Cheek talk because he has played one gd game and it was got England is a joke! Yes he can a fantastic player but bloody hell its only been one game.

It's also his performances for Palace up till now. He's been a very good performer for them so far.

Agree0 1Disagree

15 Nov 2017 12:00:25
The comments about RLC were not a joke they were an observation on how good he 'can' look with the ball, many including me pointed out his failing, ambling about when he has not got the ball something that was mentioned when he was trying to break into our team. He started reasonably well in a poor Palace team but has been used as an impact player more than anything else. When asked why he joined Palace he commented "they are close to where I live", that is not a remark of someone with huge ambition. The game will not come to you, you have to take yourself to it.

Agree2 0Disagree

16 Nov 2017 10:20:02
I really don't understand the mentality of RLC - he has everything to be a top player - skill, build, height, pace - but it seems that he's not willing to work for the team - it's all about him - and we know that the best managers (Conte, Mourinho) demand work-rate. RLC is in danger of being another Sturridge - great skill but poor attitude. Someone needs to box his ears!

I guess it is public knowledge but I've only just found out that it's very likely we will be seeking a temporary home for FOUR years.
Subject to approval we will be able to play at the bridge while initial work is carried out.
We then move out and then will probably not return until 2024.
I can't say this this makes me happy but I guess we need the extra capacity to be competitive for the future.

You will remember the work at the Bridge in the 70's and 90's and a team never seems to play well with half the ground closed or in unfamiliar surroundings. We are supposed to move to Wembley Stadium which should suit our style of play BUT it is not the Bridge!

Agree5 0Disagree

16 Nov 2017 10:24:32
There are pros and cons with Wembley. The negative is that playing at Wembley is always a big thing for opposing teams and players and they raise their game accordingly. But the promise of being able to offer Wembley as a home for 4 seasons would attract every player in the World. Still a nightmare to get to / from though.
