    I wonder where people get this idea that Chelsea have one of the best squads in the country. In squad quality i rank the following teams better than Chelsea squad wise.
    Man City
    Man United
    Liverpool.
    Spurs
    Leicester – i would say we are on par.

    My reasons are that player wise chelsea bought some players but they are mostly potentials not players at the peak of their career. The bane of Chelsea squad is experience.
    Rashford have more premier league experience than all Chelsea frontline combined when you take Giroud out. Our best player is 22yr old in his second Premier league season.
    2nd reason most of the squad are currently going through the Third Manager, This means that most aren’t in current managers plan and had to adapt to fit in.

    So please save me this misinformation of Chelsea second best squad. I would gladly swap United squad for Chelsea’s.
    Sunday game will be tight because we are quite good at keeping the ball and controlling game – second Man City in that regard which is a trait from Sarri down to Tuchel now but we still lacking in penetration thats why we aren’t doing well. United on their part are quite good at counter attack which the current setup by Tuchel wouldn’t allow you to do because of always having 5 players behind the ball at all time.

    I believe we are winning this one. United love to counter teams and Tuchel hates his team losing to counter attack and he love to control the game. If we play like we did against ATM we are winning this one.

    My thought is similar but I don’t think is the players, I think is the coach’s philosophy not working with current group of players.
    Read about Frank’s philosophy from his interviews, he wants his team to be unpredictable in play and for players to find solutions within games. He sets the team up and they finds solutions when faced with certain situations within play.
    Now such philosophy is fine if you’re coaching Real Madrid/ PSG/ Barca/ Juve and even the Chelsea team he played in because they are big personalities and they have the experience to do such. Now translate to current Chelsea team we are seriously lacking in that such personality in short we only have 1 in Thiago Silva and that’s why he can come into the side and immediately you can see he is commanding the group.
    Frankly speaking I don’t see us getting out of these situation because the manager have to change his philosophy.
    Chelsea current crop need a coach who will give the players specific instructions on what to do in play, runs to make if specific player has the ball , which space to occupy in and out of possession and drill it in that its almost automated on execution and when they are faced with situations in play he calls them to the side and explain it to them with solutions even if it means changing formations in game.
    These players are very young and need guidance which I don’t see from Frank. Watch the game you will see Frank standing and not doing anything but watch Pep/ Klopp/ Ancelloti/ Brendan Rogers even Arteta you will see him screaming from the side with instructions and calling the young players to the side with instructions. Only Ole at United is similar to Frank but United have leaders in Rashford/Bruno/ Pogba/ Maguire.

    In conclusion Frank simply need time which I believe will be best to either resign and travel the world to horn his coaching philosophy watching the coaches with similar philosophy closely and there training sessions and approach to problems or learn fast like last season when he was changing formations to fit certain teams there by confusing opponents because now the smart coaches have seen the flaws in his game and are exploiting it.

    Let all the players get back to fitness and those injured back to fitness as well, then we will actually see CFC best 11.
    To put things in perspective Bayern lost 4 – 1. they should sack Flick.😎

    Lucky there is no way you play Chelsea best Eleven without Mount. Marson is Mr Chelsea as far as am concern. The only reason he is not the captain is because of age. He epitomises Lampard tactics on the field.By the time he is 24-25 he will be the Captain.
    In short i would even go as far as start him ahead of Havertz.
    Its fine and dandy scoring beautiful goals but we need someone of Mount work rate and tactical ability to play the way Lamps wants the team to play.
    My Best Chelsea 11 — Mendy – James – Silva – Zouma – Chilwell
    Kante – Kovacic(Mount)
    Ziyech – Mount/(Havertz) – Pulisic
    Werner/(Tammy)
    The players in bracket starts while the other rests depending on Oppositions.

    Am all for signing Dunk over Koulibally. We need someone that understands the English game.
    Umpacano is no better than Tomori. Similar style. Good when marking someone but positionally unaware.
    We need a cool head and English that can talk to the other defenders.
    Umpecano wouldn’t do that and not better than Tomori. Koulibally not a great talker and doesn’t understand the league.
    Dunk is a Chelsea fan so will be able to talk to others and gain there respect.

    Why can’t we swap Jorginho for Demiral both are not happy where they are at the moment. Sarri gets his man and Chelsea gets a no nonsense defender.
    I really hope the club doesn’t miss this opportunity.

    i guess i was right about not playing 2 number 8 in a game — RLC have to learn from Kovacic about Defensive part of the game –that will help him going forward.

    If Frank play Barkley and Mount together again tomorrow then its safe to say that he haven’t learnt anything from his mistakes and deserves any questions people have about his managerial skills.
    Chelsea shouldn’t be playing two 8s in a game. Our best games this season was played when we have Kovacic and Jorginho holding centrally with Mount free to roam.
    Kante came back we went to single CDM which disorganized our game.

    Given the personal we currently have at Chelsea we should be playing 4-2-3-1 — when attacking the 2 CB stays and defends with Jorginho and Kovacic seating in front of the CB to stop Counters and recover balls given our CBs aren’t good with the ball.
    Allow the 3 behind to roam with Mount joining Giroud in CF and width coming from the FB.
    if Frank need height then play RLC in place of Mount — he will join Giroud( Tammy) making it 2 in the middle.

    We should stop exposing Jorginho as a sole DLP once beaten teams are running at our defence. Jorginho was having his best game when Kovacic was next to him because he recycles ball with him and Kovacic very skillful beats any press and advance ball to the 3 playmakers behind the strikers. Why we stopped playing that way i dont know.too much trust in Kante i guess

    Pls Frank need to send some scouts down to Southampton to find out what’s there training regime because the amount of energy and stamina were infectious. Full pressing for 90 + mins.

    I dont mind us signing Ake and play him as Leftback i strongly believe he can do it. He may a defensive one but at least that will balance our backline — when James attacks (which he is good at )we can swap to 3 at the back with Zouma/Tomori/Ake. Pulisic wouldnt bother a lot with defending.

    Frankly speaking i don’t care about Kai — we are very loaded in the area where he will be playing. Creating chances have never been Chelsea issue, were we are found wanting is B2B player in the form of Ramirez/Essein/ Wjnaldum. Players comfortable in both defensive and attacking phase of the game. We tends to have players comfortable in attacking – Barkley/RLC /Mason or Deep playmaker in Jorginho/Gilmour. Then we have Kante who never really fit into both.
    Kai in Chelsea wouldn’t work — reminds me of Barkley a lot.

    We should either promote from within – for our Midfield like – Tino Anjorin/ Gallagher who is like Mount.
    Sign GK like Rajkovic and a Left back.
    As per CB — if am Frank i will play Tomori and Zouma let them grow together.

    I think Frank will go for it because it’s United. Based on our game with them this season he will be going for a psychological win.

    For goalkeeper we should go for Rajkovic — will cost less and put pressure on Kepa.

    I dont think we need to be looking far for a Fabinho – we just have to promote from within.I strongly believe that Ethan Ampadu can play similar role.
    Having honed his defensive game further as a CB in 3 at the back all season in germany.

    Why pay so much we should be going for Tim and if possible Ryan Fraser. Personal opinion i don’t think we need Kai we rather go for Benrahma instead fits what we are looking for. We have a lot of players that can play Kai position — Ruben/Mount/Anjorin/Barkley/Kovacic/ Gallagher out on loan can as well.
    Don’t get me wrong Kai looks like a good prospect but watching him — i just feel he doesn’t fit the Premier league — Luxury player with no workrate.
    The recipe for success in this League is — Speed/power/Workrate and goals. If you want to win this league you need all 3 — every team that have won it have those quality in abundance.
    Signing like Kai looks like Arsenal signing fine to watch but doesn’t win you enough.
    Left to me i will pass unless they are willing to sell for 30Million, the last player we paid that sum on we are now struggling to get rid of.
