ed do the club rate tomori highly?

{Ed001's Note - apparently he has impressed on loan with Derby.}

He definitely has. Had a fantastic season and is very promising.

Don't know if we have space for him though with Ampadu and Zouma as great CB options as well as Rudi and Christensen. But Tomori and Trevoh Chalobah would probably impress if given a chance.

24 Apr 2019 17:57:44
Tomori will be much better player than Zouma. A defensive partnership of Tomori and Ampadu would be excellent in two or three years.

Comparing the games. Brighton and Burnley set up the same, bodies behind the ball, no way through for spurs, then they have a player who can shoot from distance, 1-0, we lacked this last night and many nights this season.

{Ed001's Note - to be fair, a lot of that was down to Ryan being so slow to get across, he had time to hop once before he even tried to dive. He could see it as it left Eriksen's foot but decided to wait rather than diving across immediately. Awful goalkeeping. It was not even in the corner, he should have got across.}

Exactly what I thought Ed. I was furious when I saw that replayed.

{Ed001's Note - I am just amazed how the commentator never spotted it and was too busy verbally masturbating over the shot.}

24 Apr 2019 07:29:12
Because it was media darlings Spurs. Instead of a 'plucky defensive performance' like Burnley, Brighton were just 'hanging on' all game.

Is it Sarri or the player do we think. Ed's can contribute if they want too, on one hand we have Sarri who's stubborn in his philosophy, has the best DM in world football playing out of position and claimed his not good enough passing to play the " regista " which is strange as kante a passing is so underrated, makes only like for like substitutions, striker for striker, Barkley for kovecic, Pedro for William Giroud for higuian, rarely changes to suit opposition except the cup final v city some could argue, board got him higuian even though Sarri said his not fit and needs time but needs to do so ASAP.
Other hand we have no creative players except hazard. We don't have nearly enough goals from midfield, no killer pass or goals from distance, he has got RLC and Cho involved so playing some youth. Got Emerson in when people wanted Alonso our starting line up, got hazard his best season so far. And of course his new to England / league. or simple answer it's bit of both?

{Ed001's Note - bit of both I would say defo. Sarri is taking time to adjust to the league and is very stubborn and will hang on to his way even when it needs to change. On the other hand, there are a number of players who are not good enough, such as Barkley and Alonso and so the team relies too heavily on Hazard.}

I know there’s not much going transfer update wise but how do the board approach the summer if we can register players. Do we look at players ( for example ) fekir coutinho who play CAM when we don’t use a CAM system, do the board looks st Sarri preferred line up/ system and say., jorginho kante are starters so we need back up for jorginho back up for kante and a player who fits the LCM role? , I really don’t want to lose hazard BUT if we get a good few and add a threat down both flanks and a goalscorer form midfield then so be it, hopefully the striker curse is lifted and Chelsea stop signing players who are just over the hill and can lead and score for few years too, that doesn’t help. Think we’ve hot woodwork most in league and missed most of second most chances.

{Ed001's Note - they will look to players that work within the team framework. If Sarri stays they will go with players to work within his team set up.}

23 Apr 2019 11:44:16
Is there strong chance of Sarri moving on. I saw Napoli fans have banners up calling for his return at weekend, Roma and inter all looking too apparently? Where do we go after Sarri lol.

{Ed001's Note - the club will not stand in his way if he chooses to go, so it is up to him. I have no idea what he will think. He is a very stubborn guy though, so, from knowing that, I would suggest he is likely to want to stay and prove himself.}

23 Apr 2019 11:57:26
I’ve had times on here I’ve ranted and wanted him gone, but we need some stability, some good recruitment and if he adjusts slightly regarding kante position I’d be more than happy. simple hey. Also while here, any closer to a director of football. I’m sure that’ll help a bit.

{Ed001's Note - I don't know sorry.}

Oh dear as I feared Burnley took points off us and we were unable to cash in favourable weekend results. Sorry to say that Jorginho yet again cannot seem to find an incisive forward pass. But to be fair it was really those two set piece moments of sloppy defending that lost us this game. Just not good enough. Hazard worked his socks off, some wonderful trickery, acceleration and passes but just not quite enough for us to get second half winner.

The less said the better.

Very strange game with just a few positives and a lot more negatives.

My guess is there will be a lot more twists and turns over the next couple of weeks.

Very sorry to hear that Odoi’s injury might be a bad one.

23 Apr 2019 00:26:39
Just can't beat teams that pack their box. Southampton, Everton, Leicester, Wolves, Burnley, they all came to Stamford bridge just looking to defend and we struggled in all of them. We don't have the quality to break these teams down, and even when we do like tonight our shambolic defence end up ruining it. End of the day seems like no team chasing top 4 actually wants it, never seen teams slip us soo much and i'm sure they'll be more to come. Gutted about Odoi, he'll come back strong but it's never nice to see a young player go through an injury like that. Hopefully Kante's is nothing serious.

23 Apr 2019 05:48:33
We miss someone who can have a pop from outside the box to break down teams who sit back and defend. we also miss a strong leader in that team who can give out instructions on the pitch, pull the strings during the game.

If we can get both in one, that for me will be a good summer.

23 Apr 2019 09:34:46
Well what we definitely also miss is a genuinely world-class creative midfielder with the capability of the killer-mass-defence-splitting pass like Cesc at his best, City's Silva or de Bruyne etc (Hazard can do this of course, but he's making these as a forward from wide positions) .

23 Apr 2019 10:21:35
Agreed JBS, but i feel we have lost a little of the fight we had in the earley days of JM . we will not lose attitude is amiss . and that stems from PC JT FL DD who were our spine.

They have not been replaced . i still feel we are physically weak for the english league too and we need those strong big players who are massive LEADERS.

23 Apr 2019 10:41:24
Kante beside ndombele or doucore ( spelling ) of Watford would add some power and drive and protection, or even ndidi of Leicester’, two no nonsense ball winners who have big engines and win the ball and pass it. Would mean big change, 4231 and other personnel added, a CAM, threat down right ( Pulisic / Cho ) . But it’s the protection and 2/ 3 of those players would I imagine be reasonably cheap in today’s market, I wouldn’t class any of these as leaders thou., those days are long gone, rudiger is a bit I suppose.

23 Apr 2019 11:15:33
Agree with lack of leadership compared to days of that great spine you mention dareryk, and would be good indeed to have a manager in place for long enough - and with the vision (perhaps aided by director of football) - to rebuild at least a semblance of one over time cos yes Matt it's certainly long gone right now. I like some of your picks to bolster the midfield eg Ndidi and Doucoure, and might add Gueye of Everton, and of course Loftus-Cheek at best certainly has that power and drive, but who could/ should be that CAM with real flair?

23 Apr 2019 18:23:31
I personally like Verratti although I doubt we could get him.
