Rash move by chelsea I think. Tuchel is bang average, didn't achieve anything of merit with dortmund. No idea how he earnt the move to PSG.

Lampard did well last season and I think they will benefit from the youngsters he blooded.

Galatico signings from Germany just didn't hit the ground running at all. Both look like shadows of their bundesliga versions.

Yer man Tomori went on loan to AC Milan. Apparantly Milan have an opton to buy him for something like £25m. I think Klopp could make him a world-beater. He has bags of pace.

I was always impressed when I saw him - classic CB qualities from a physical stand point. I guess he was a bit raw and it seems shortsighted from Chelsea given that he is English and they are not overstocked at CB with guys coming through

Agreed, think there's the makings of a very very good defender there.

On Sky Sports this morning they were discussing Tuchel at Chelsea and the opinion put forward that the least that should be expected from him straight, given the squad they currently have, would be to challenge for the title and cups this season.



Funny how the narrative has changed with regards to how a manager should have that squad performing now that Lampard is gone.

Crazy shit.

I would love if someone put that to Tuchel in an interview. He's likely to come out with a brilliant quote along the lines of "if this club was going to challenge for the league this year, then they wouldn't have hired me mid-season"

I expect that Roman will throw another wad at it in the summer though. And if he does, then they won't be too far away from challenging.

And no doubt if they managed to the credit would have to go to Lampard for laying the foundations according to the great British press and pundits

Chelsea

Probably makes more sense than spending £100m on Grealish though. Lukaku will score for Chelsea, and that was the area that they needed to improve on.

They had a problem scoring goals last year, signing him should address that and improve them as a side, yes it's a lot of money, but again they are one of the sides that don't need to worry about such things

They have some academy and their loan structure generates a lot of cash also - they have Roman’s billions but they bring in plenty of cash also

This one will hurt - making them much better and we have a big LCM gap with Gini gone. He is a self professed Gerrard fan and by definition us.......

He will do well there

I watched some Netflix documentary and part of it followed him.

He came across like a moron in a scene where Torres was driving them to training and he pipes up saying he wants to make sure his marketing is good. Torres tells him to forget about that and simply focus on his football but after watching that I remember thinking, what a tool.

I think he thinks he's a smart business savy lad but obviously not as he signed a 9 year contract.

If he's so good why are Athletico letting him go to a CL rival on loan? Seems a bit weird.

They got fined £25k for failing to properly control their players after the James sending off against us.

£25k what's the point in even bothering with that fine?

I watched about 25 mins of their game today, Saul was absolutely shocking and hooked at halftime.

Took way too long on the ball, obviously not registered with him how much faster the prem is than la Liga. Hilarious.

The one thing that every club will do in the EPL is give it 100% and fight - in Spain the teams still play open football and allow you time. Look how long Klopp took to integrate Fabinho to where he is now.

I hope he continues in that vein and bombs for them

I didn’t think he was THAT BAD based on that. Not great but not an absolute train wreck. All players take time to adjust to the pace on the game in England so as much as I hope he bombs badly I’m sure he’s better than that.

He was terrible, a better side could have put three past Chelsea all directly from him being dispossessed in an area of the field where you can't afford to lose it.

What that compilation doesn't show, is how those ball losses resulted in direct opportunities for villa or how little influence he had on the game overall.

So actually it is a kinder view of his debut than if you'd watched the match.

He can of course still be a good signing for them but just goes to show that the prem is a step up. Especially as a CM, you can't be dithering about on the ball.

Ok fair enough like you say I didn’t see the whole match.

Kante has tested positive for COVID. That's a huge loss for them.

Sadly they've got a piss easy run for the next two months.

Great player, but he's hardly played for them this season. Don't think he's completed a full match and the only 2 he's started they've dropped points.
