Ed is it true chelsea are interested in bringing in karamoko dembele thanks.

{Ed002's Note - Chelsea had scouts at a Celtic game as I have previously explained.{

I see, interesting as he looks a brilliant talent and a left footed winger which we haven't had in a while, are there any plans to try and get him? Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - he is a 16 year old schoolboy.}

It’s been awhile I posted but I have always been keeping an eye on the page. Watching Liverpool vs Man City lastnight got me thinking how best we could limit (because this dude can’t be stopped) sterling. who is better equipt to do a job on him between azpi (experience) and reece (strength and pace) the more I think of sterling down that left wing the more my heart beat increases. and lastly mourinho said on sky that this Chelsea side lack the pragmatism the top teams most have to play against the top teams. what are your thought on these?

{Ed001's Note - put James on him, Sterling always struggles when put under physical pressure.}

Ed001 my thought exactly but then this game is going to be the biggest game in reece’s Young career to date and it could go both ways:he’s either consumed by the magnitude of the game or announce himself to the world big time, I pray for the latter.

{Ed001's Note - if you don't throw them in then you never find out if they actually have what it takes. It is like forging a weapon, you only know if the metal is right when you put it in the quench and see if it cracks or not. The more you mollycoddle a kid, the less able they are to deal with pressure when it comes. It is the same as the nonsense we always hear about not throwing kids into a losing team - that is the perfect time to get them playing. Then you find out what they have.}

Thanks Ed for the reply. Going through your reply has given me some sort of confidence going into this game. Chelsea! Chelsea!

{Ed001's Note - I actually fancy Chelsea to get something from the game. Pep's teams always have a drop off after he has been there a while. In the past he has had no challengers for it to matter and they could stroll through the Bundesliga and La Liga anyway, and it was just in Europe it showed. Now he is actually facing competition and the cracks are appearing. Be interesting to see if he does what he usually does and walks away when it the going gets tough. I think Chelsea could well ratchet up the pressure on him.

The only issue is that Chelsea do play a style (usually) that suits City. So it will be a good test of Lampard's ability to get something out of his team to beat City. As he will need to tweak something tactically.}

Spot on Ed001.thanks for the swift response. i really appreciate.

{Ed001's Note - very welcome mate.}

One for the youngsters: Reece James reminds me so much of Ken Shellito - what a beast James is! Of all the young players, I think Reece James will prove to be the best.

I am loving watching this team - Gaaaaaaaan Frankie's fledglings.

Agree0 0Disagree

10 Nov 2019 15:26:47
I said that myself that Reece will be the best he’s so complete so early. Then I think it’ll be Tomori he’s really surprised me. 1v1 he’s unbeatable.

10 Nov 2019 21:24:43
start of the season I was worried that we only had 1 really good centre half in Rudiger. would never have believed that Zouma and Timori would play, let alone be so fantastic together. well done Frank.

10 Nov 2019 23:12:10
I am partly with you sid. I never even thought that Tomori will stay with Chelsea let alone be main CB player, I had high hopes for Zouma though.

I can see you are Liverpool fan Ed001 :) I would never rate Allison higher than Oblak ;)

{Ed001's Note - that says more about you than me mate. Oblak plays in a defensive system that protects him and is weak on the ball.}

13 Nov 2019 12:54:46
I was very impressed with Onana against Chelsea he’s very commanding and good on the ball, what do you make of him Ed? Kepa hasn’t give me confidence this year I really thought he was going to shine but he’s gone the other way after a good first season. He doesn’t come for crosses and his save percentage has been shocking.

{Ed001's Note - I mentioned him in here: Top 10 Keepers so you can see what I think of him by how highly I listed him.}

13 Nov 2019 13:13:24
I agree Ed think he’s brilliant, good at commanding his area too. Kepa is a good talker but he’s not a catcher. You not keen on Kepa either Ed?

{Ed001's Note - no mate I don't think he is, yet anyway, very good. He makes me nervous and I am not convinced he is suited to the Prem. He has weak wrists and doesn't command his area.}

13 Nov 2019 15:13:46
I agree his wrists aren’t strong, Onana on the other hand is a powerhouse aswell 💪.

10 Nov 2019 08:58:50
Can I just say as someone who hasn't posted in a while, I'm glad to see Kurt proving all his doubters wrong from earlier on this season. I never doubted him, he's a top top centre back with only a couple better than him in the league in my opinion. Putting some big displays in of late!

Absolutely agree Nick.

10 Nov 2019 23:13:40
Finally some happy posts from you Nick. You were right pissed off last season :D.

Just back from the Bridge. Very enjoyable game and our side reminds me so much of the early team that Tommy Docherty built all those years ago. Full of energy and passion.

Quite right James will get lots of plaudits but I would like to single out Willian who was brilliant.

Also, how about the home fans chanting Jorginho's name during the match. He is certainly becoming a fans favourite.

Agree0 0Disagree

I loved it Tom. He was at the stadium too and he must have loved hearing the fans chant his name. His the first name on the team sheet for me. World class.

09 Nov 2019 20:56:59
Reece James 'POCKETED' (if there's a word like that) Zaha completed; Zaha didn't see his period.

09 Nov 2019 21:20:42
Agree Tom. I was also at the game - in East Stand Upper (wish the supporters could make more of a noise! ) - and thought Willian was outstanding today, whether with ball, pressing or tracking back with purpose right to the end. My posts over past seasons have always defended him from sometimes really nasty comments. Yes, there have been games when he's not been at his best (especially for quite a long time after his mother dies), but not being at their best would apply to all players at times, and he's often shone if only especially in that season with Jose when many other players seemed to be on strike or working to rule. Willian may be now one of the elder statesman, but am sure the younger players are benefiting from playing with him as he seems to be newly energised by them. Long may it last.

Rees James excellent throughout, and our considerably improved second half performance (Mason Mount noticeable here) a credit perhaps to a Frank talk at half-time.

I will admit that I was one who was not particularly impressed by many of Jorginho's first season performances, especially mid-season (he started and ended very well indeed) when he appeared to be a bit off the pace and to struggle to find any penetrative forward pass in quite a few matches (recall ones v Southamton and Newcastle at home in January for instance), but did express hope that he would reveal himself to be the great player I/ we hoped he would be. and this season he seems to be doing that. Well done TomB for never doubting this. Kova has been v good too along side him, and we seem to have considerable strength in midfield now what with Kante back, plus Mason Mount and RLC with attacking skill and goal threat.

In August, I thought the season would be roller-coaster, but thankfully so far the up bits much longer than down ones. Frank and CFC look to be building something special. It may or may not take a couple of seasons, but let's just all remember to stick with this process even if we go through a sticky patch.

11 Nov 2019 12:09:46
I thought we actually looked far more defensively secure with Kante replacing Jorginho - Kante and Kovacic provide far more protection to our centre-backs than Jorginho and Kovacic (soz, didn't mean to burst your pro-Jorginho bubble) .
