If courtois does end up going to Real which is looking very likely now. Why don't we ask for Keylor Navas in return?
much better than butland schmeichal or pickford and the 70 mill saved we can use on a forward player or full back . I hate this talk of us spending big on a keeper when we need players more urgently in 3 or 4 outfield positions.

I think Chelsea are in a great position.

At the helm is a good manager who likes to play attacking football, which has delivered continued, relative success for the last 2-3 years.

There is a squad filled with quality players in most positions in most age groups. Most importantly, the core of that squad appear to be able to play in the managers preferred style.

I feel that GK, obviously, LB, CAM, and ST could be positions of concern throughout the season. Although the squad has players who, at their best, can play at the top level in those positions.

With a little patience and loud support during the transition from a defensive set up to an attacking one, this Chelsea side could be formidable. I also think this side will be scoring for fun in the near future.

Even if the results are relatively mediocre over the coming season, this Chelsea side should be expected to finish top 4. Such is the class of players like Hazard and Kante.

Any way good luck to you for the coming year.

i wouldn't agree with a squad filled with great players . giroud batshuayi and morata an abraham are all very average. drinkwatwr barkley bakayoko fabregas are all very poor players. luiz is a poor centre back. cahill is on a slope downwards. zappacosta is terrible an ahould of never been signed moses is average. christensen hasn't stepped up as much as i expected beem honest.

yeah u have the obvious players hazard kante azpi jorginho . willian an pedro are both hot am cold rudiger is still finding his feet.

Apparently united offered 45m and Gomes and Mina for pogba and has been rejected . Wonder if they'd accept 45m and Willian,?

If Zouma and Cahill do end up leaving would anyone want Boateng? Seems strange seen as he's available and good on the ball.

Besides defensively and our midfield, one of our main issues is going to be where are our goals going to be coming from this season?


Morata, I have no confidence in him whatsoever, he looks worse and worse the more we see of him.

Michy, looked good at Dortmund and would surely be a much better option than Morata at this moment in time.

Giroud, can grab a goal but I've no idea if he'll still be here for the season ahead or whether Sarri even likes him as a player.

Tammy Abraham, if given a chance he could do a job. But it's a huge risk.


Hazard, clearly our best player and will chip in with a fair few goals. But he's far from prolific in goalscoring terms.

Willian, will score a few wonder strikes here and there but once again doesn't score enough.

Pedro, inconsistent to say the least. Always puts in a shift but that's about it.

Odoi, you can't expect much from a 17 year old but it will be great to see him given a chance this season.


There really are barely any goals coming from our midfield, Loftus-Cheek the standout but he looks to be heading back to palace on loan.

Kante, amazing player but goals are not what he is about.

Jorginho, sets the pace with his passing but once again isn't a goal scorer.

Fabregas, shouldn't even be in the starting XI as it's like playing with 10 men.

Barkley, obviously capable but he just doesn't look fit enough or confident at all.

We saw yesterday how we're missing someone like an Aguero, gets a chance and its a goal.

No idea who is going to lead our line this season, I just hope we sign a decent striker before Thursday otherwise it could be painful watching Morata all season.

But who knows I could be eating my words in a few months and Morata could be flying. Here's hoping.

I don't want this to seem like a negative post, it's just how I feel looking at our team right now.

Chelsea isn't a team that needs so much analysis. The fans know if the team is good enough to win the title or if the team will finish 2nd, 3rd, 4th or wherever. Gold is tested with fire- if we are good enough it would have shown against Manchester City. There's no pampering words, truth be told, the team isn't good enough to win the EPL if that's what we want for this season.

I understand it's going to take time to implement the managers way of playing but that was the worst football I have seen since Scolari was manager. We have been spoilt under Roman and it's just a bitter pill to swallow knowing we are now that team who might get top 4. I support the team through wins/ loses but the club seem to put themselves in struggling situations by the way we go about our business. It was clear from may that conte wasn't going to be manager and sarri was the one we wanted, but yet it takes until July to resolve. Similar situation with players, hazard and Courtois have apparently expressed their desire to leave but yet the club are offering hazard 300k p/ w to stay but still playing with players that are nowhere near his level. I would bet my life we end up selling Courtois next week for next to nothing and being forced to buy someone like Schmeichel for about £60m. I understand it's not all doom and gloom but it's frustrating as a fan you can see what needs to be done so why not go and do it. It's not a game of FIFA on Xbox but I'm not asking for £200m neymar, you can clearly see that we lack pace throughout the team.
Regarding today's game I thought Jorginho struggled but again it will take time for him to adjust to the pace of English football. I thought Barkley done ok but you still feel he's got more to him and doesn't express himself enough. Hudson-Odoi done ok against probably the best RB in Europe.
Willy a ok backup. Rudiger a little lost today but Luiz I thought was poor so that never helped him. I've been a Luiz fan over the years but he just seems to slow the game down too much to be a regular in a sarri team. Alonso absolutely cracks me up and how he still plays is beyond me. We need a strong Pacey player and Alex Sandro fits that bill well. Fabregas and Jorginho are too alike and cannot play in the same team so Cesc should be backup. People probably bored of me saying this but I believe Willian could play in the 3 man midfield if he stays. I have no words that can describe Morata, I really thought he'd be a good signing for us and was glad we got him instead of lukaku, how wrong was I.
Lastly I look forward to the team and the football being played to get a lot better under sarri but with only a week to go in the window I think the big wigs higher up in the club need to address the clubs issues out a lot sooner. By this I mean the whole sacking of conte and we apparently where chasing Higuain and Rugani/ caldara for the last month for them to then go sign for Milan.

Hopefully I am proved wrong in next couple of days, but after all the moans about our transfer activity in past few seasons, I thought this summer would be different and we get the players we wanted, I am sure someone at the club said we had done at the groundwork on transfers a long time ago. City and Liverpool get their business done early and no doubt we will be left with last minute signings of the likes of drinkwater.

05 Aug 2018 19:04:16
Bernardo Silva
David Silva
Luka Modric

Our midfield is lacking such players who can dribble, retain the ball, with good vision and insane passing range.

We had Cesc for one season, and then he aged and got tired.
I don't know of any player out there with such qualities that chelsea could challenge for but we need a central midfielder with these qualities.

Kovacic is a blue. he is a good signing.

My comments from the Arsenal match are ringing true again, our midfield is being exposed time and again. Our pace was lethargic, once our fitness builds and we get used to the system I think things will pick up. Let’s see what adjustments we make against Lyon midweek.
