Ed's who came up with the frequently used term "double pivot"?

{Ed001's Note - I have absolutely no idea sorry.}

Sounds like Kepa could be off to Roma on loan, would probably be best for all parties. Chelsea can then put Mendy in goal and Kepa can get away and hopefully rebuild his confidence and find some form in a different country.

I’m not sure why but I have my doubts about s this story.

I do agree with you Bobby that a confidence rebuild would be good for him and us.

I can't see Kepa go on loan personally.

Ziyech and pulisic still out, weekend I'd go 442 diamond, Tammy deserves a start, havertz has to play no10, kante deepest mount one side and kovecic other,

Matt, I assume you don’t mean Kant playing as the hiding midfield player?

I did ask Ed01 about this perception from some fans that Kante has playEd as a DM/ holding midfield player.

I think I’m correct in saying Kante hasn’t played that position for Leicester or Chelsea other than MAYBE the odd occasion.

I think it will be 4231.

Haha not specifically but rather was there than other options, and I imagine we’d have most of ball, he did play there end of season for 2/ 3 games but it’s definitely not his position, just a way of Tammy werner and havertz all playing as Tammy was very good Wednesday.

I don't think you're far off with the midfield diamond. I think it'll be a three midfield (Kante, Kovacic and Mount) with Havertz playing in a free role behind Werner and Abraham. Width will be supplied by James and Chilwell.

Hi Ed002;
The interest in RLC from Southampton is towards a permanent deal or a season long loan?

Thanks in advance.

{Ed002's Note - A number of Premier League clubs are talking to Chelsea about taking players on loan - they would like a loan.}

Having not heard from my good friend Olive for a good few weeks I called her last night, she had just finished a long shift and was tired but did tell me Boubakary Soumaré is a name she has heard mentioned in the last day or so! Been lots of talk involving player departures, mainly loan requests so expect more outs than ins leading upto the window closing. just thought I would share.

Honestly, if Rice is viewed as a CB target then Soumare would make a whole lot of sense as a DM target. Absolutely massive talent both physically and technique wise on the ball.

Why not get both of them? 😁.

I hope the board goes for the player who will genuinely improve us, Soumare over Rice every day.

I hope the board leave space for Ampadu next season.

Agree0 0Disagree

De javu, I am not surprised his name came up. Soumare is a good player and can improve at Chelsea if the club decides to go after either. Fingers crossed.

I’m more interested in Olive!

Is she married G8.

Agree0 0Disagree

25 Sep 2020 21:47:30
TomB, behave. Olive is my school friend from a few moons ago. she is lovely and really does look like Olive from "On the buses". her real name is Doris. she has worked for Roman for over 10 years now.

It’s the lockdown G8, honest.

Soumare is head and shoulders ahead of Rice imo and is probably more gettable.

I think yesterday's performance should put to bed the argument about our best system; it's 4231 end of story. Allows Kai to operate centrally and run beyond the striker. The double pivot gives the fullbacks more protection to advance and provide width in attack and also gives us more options to build out from the back with. The band of 3 behind the striker is very fluid which will cause the opposing defenses confusion. It has to be 4231 going forward.
