    Classic chelsea. More chances and losing. That said, it’s the games against the bottom of the table teams at home, and not games like this, that will cost us top 4.

    We need to put mount at wing and stop playing willian and Pedro. Pedro is somehow even worse than willian.

    Mount has issues from open play but his set piece delivery has been consistently great.

    “Winter break” means we don’t play this weekend and then they schedule us for the Monday game the following weekend so 2 straight weekends without Chelsea the second NFL season ends is my nightmare.

    Getting linked to Andre Onana, Ajax GK. No idea how the hell we'd offload Kepa but it seems almost inevitable.

    probably sell him back to bilbao for 50 cents on the dollar would be my guess.

    Have to assume there are no realistic takers. Hopefully some Spanish team gets desperate but I feel we're stuck with him for a while. Only good thing is that he's not on massive wages (pretty sure btw 100 and 150k) so someone besides the mega clubs could theoretically afford him.

    Another dumb deal by chelsea. Even if you like the signing, it’s a major failure not to do it in January. Personally I’m not a fan and think he’s a horrible fit in the premier league. Better than spending £80m on zaha I suppose.

    I don't think it's that bad? Adds something we don't really have in our wingers and good price

    Obviously depends on what else we sign in the summer to go with it

    Ajax is in a battle for the Eredivisie with AZ Alkmaar, I highly doubt they were willing to part with him in January short of getting well over asking.

    He’s a great passer (which we essentially have 0 of) and replicates a lot of the good stuff Willian does. I’m actually OK with him being older, can’t have only 19-22 y/o in the squad. Just have to hope that we’re still in for Sancho, Warner or one of the other huge signings.

    Its a great move. Ajax werent parting with him until summer. Got a cheaper price by waiting.

    Don’t see why you would hate this move. It’s not like we’re winning anything this year and are some unlucky results away from being comfortably in Champions League position.

    Only reason any of you could/should have any issue, IMO, is that it may be at a position that’s not of huge need.

    The criticism I've seen is that he needs lots of space which he won't get in the EPL.

    Yeah. CAS will probably shorten the ban, but even if it means top 5 this year, it’s pretty massive.

    I don’t think he can play in a midfield 3 in the premier league but maybe he would be a good fit as a 10 when we play 4-2-3-1. This was against the last place team in the Dutch league but he still created 4 chances in 45 min. Started to come around to the idea that I may have been wrong on him. I still wish we would have paid a bit extra and gotten it done in January if we were going to do it.

    I don't understand that tweet. Because he played as part of a midfield 3 today, this guy is absolutely sure that is how he's going to be utilized at Chelsea? Unless we sign another more obvious winger, I'm pretty sure Ziyech'll be seeing action on the right. He's right that it's great to have that kind of versatility.

    that guy is an idiot. I think he can definitely play as a 10 but I think he plays on the right almost always. It’s possible that frank wants more creativity from a number 10 though. seems to me like frank wants to play 4-2-3-1 and will play that even more when he gets to buy and sell some players.

    was just about to type this out. Hopefully we can grind out a 1-1 tie. Might be our worst starting XI in the league all season. Only positive is that hopefully most of these guys knew they would be starting and are prepared but this is a terrible lineup. At least united won’t be able to play on the counterattack. No way we control the game with this lineup.
