We're probably keeping a close eye on him now that he's fit again. I think I'm right in saying he was one of our main targets over the summer until his injury.

Heard a lot of talk about Middlesbrough's Ben Gibson today. We've been linked with him lately I was just wondering whether anyone could shed any light in whether he's any good. I've never seen him play and he's homegrown and left footed for a CB which is something we lack. Is he good enough for us.

Wow I must've really annoyed someone. 4 dislikes when I only asked a question. I only asked whether anyone's seen him play!

Maybe people just don't believe he's good enough?

That's what I was asking just seeing if anyone's seen him play and whether he's good i didn't say we should sign him.

Rumours about Emenalo leaving. At last! I never rated he bloke and very suprised he has kept his job this long. As Director of football he is responsible for all the cock ups.

Thinking about next year and that attacking three of ours it's still a work in progress but next year could be the season we compete at all levels again especially if we manage to get top 4 this season.

With Eden and Diego as two sorted we just miss that one special player we haven't had since Robben on the right who can cut in on his left. Obviously the name that everyone wants is Griezmann and I'd go as far as saying we should quite easily just activate his release clause and get that marquee signing.

One thing that worries me though is Atletico wanting Diego in return and personally I don't want to see him leave as he's one of the few passionate players in our side. And we have a good relationship with Atletico and we don't want to ruin it. One player I'd suggest we could aim for not a lot of people have suggested is Paulo Dybala although it will be very difficult but boy that lad is special.

From what I've seen I've both Griezmann and Dybala also is that they both seem team players who don't have big ego's which is always nice to have so if it meant losing Diego we should definitely aim to Dybala instead of Griezmann.

As for defence I'd like to give a special mention to David Luiz. He's had a lot of undeserved criticism from a lot of other fans and some of our own. Against Arsenal and Liverpool I personally don't think he had a poor game and certainly wasn't to blame.

Ivanovic and Cahill are the ones who are causing problems for us defensively and once Zouma comes back god willing the same player I think a back three of Azpilicueta, Luiz and Zouma shall be special.

It has consistency of Azpi, the passing of Luiz and the pure strength of Zouma. I'd also like to mention that the bit of defending Luiz did yesterday even though he turned it into his own post was fantastic. It looked bad but if he never intercepted the ball Vardy would have had a tap in.

I'd much rather see Luiz go for the ball than just let Vardy have a tap in. I think next year with Christensen back and hopefully Zouma back to his best a back three of Christensen, Luiz and Zouma will be very good.

I love what Moses has done since he's come into the side but I'd prefer to see his style further forward with his direct style. Then I'd revert Azpilicueta to the RWB position.

Ed02 has said on the united page with ref to Griezmann "that others have made a great deal of progress in discussions". PSG or Bayern or an English club maybe, it's certainly not United.

I'd love Dybala in our side but i don't have a clue how attainable he is.

It has nothing to do with Ivanovic and Cahill, it's up to tactical approach.If you expect defenders to save the day in every game, then you can't expect to be more than mid table club.
With more aggressive attack-minded style your club shows intention to be top four club at least.

Anti bot that is the worst post you have posted. Ivanovic is at fault for at least 15 goals over last season and this season. He's so slow, when you see him live at a game, he does look like a 12 year old kid. His time is up.

{Ed001's Note - surely it is not so much that people are expecting Ivanovic and Cahill to save the day anyway? It is clearly about the embarrassing errors the pair keep making which lead to goals being conceded, particularly in Cahill's case this season. If you go into most games needing to score one goal just to get a draw, then you are at a major disadvantage.}

Not looking so bad now.

Some people say that it's not up to formation, but it seems that there's a quite a lot about it. Off course it's very much up to tactical approach (high pressure) reliving defence from the pressure.

I've said about 2 months ago that Conte will get the right game and that Chelsea needs time to make it work.

I'm pretty sure that at the end of a season we will finish at the top four. We're playing much better football than MU and all in all we have a better team than Arsenal.

January targets possibly Bonucci, Koulibaly? although unlikely.

Believable0 Unbelievable2

09 Oct 2016 00:58:43
Bonucci or Manolas I would think, didn't Koulibaly sign a new contract?

Either way, were destined for 3-5-2.

All this youth talk I think we should concentrate on the spine of the team with the youth and choose the ones who deserve it the most.

In defence it's obvious got to be CHRISTENSEN given his chance. He needs to be integrated as part of Conte's three man backline with Zouma. In between them we need an experience centre half as a stop gap to lead them preferably someone a bit younger than Terry and quicker. Thiago Silvia would be the dream for me as he's a complete CB.

As for midfield Loftus-Cheek's been made to be the poster boy of the club and for all his ability he just hasn't done enough for me. He needs a two year loan to develop his work rate and play regularly. I'd like to see BAKER finally given his shot as he get goals from midfield and he seems hungriest. Also has a great long range shot which we've lacked since our great trio (Ballack, Essien and Lampard) . Chalobah will great as a rotational squad player and for me he should start over Matic and Mikel. It seems Conte has chose 3-4-3 and he doesn't rate Cesc enough to start him which I personally agree with.

As for up top I think it's clear to see ABRAHAM is a sensational young talent who is miles ahead of Solanke in terms of attitude and professionalism. Although I don't want Costa to move on as he's a warrior and the only current one in the side other than Terry. But if he does want to move back and we want Griezmann well we can only put two and two together. A front three of Griezmann, Abraham and Hazard would cause havoc.

That's just my personal opinion on the three I'd choose to concentrate on as the spine which would be Christensen, Baker and Abraham.

I would also like to see Butland replace Courtois as to be honest I've had enough of the loud Belgian and his ego. He's nowhere near as good as what he thinks he is.

Thing is with Ruben he doesn't get played in his natural position, number 10 or striker he's always got his back to goal, he needs to be moving facing goal. He looks lost every time playing these roles.

Agree1 Disagree1

03 Oct 2016 16:23:13
Well I for one cannot wait to see Zouma back after the internationals I just pray to god he comes back the same player. He seems very grounded for his age with the right attitude so I don't see why he won't be the same.

It looks as though Conte's now found his preferred 3-4-3 formation. If Zouma comes back the same player and with Christensen back next year i think we have two of the three spots filled for the future.

Luiz will bring passion back to the club but I don't think he'd be my choice as the third CB I'd like to see him as back up CB/ DM.

My question is who would you like to see next year alongside Zouma and Christensen. We definitely need experience between the two. Bonucci would be the dream but I can't see him leaving. Manolas and Koulibaly have been mentioned but who would you prefer?

Well, obviously he needs to prove himself there more, but I was thrilled with seeing Azpi as CB last match.

Agree0 Disagree1

03 Oct 2016 20:35:33
You get 100% from Azpilicueta wherever you play him but we still need Zouma's pace and power in the backline.

Agree1 Disagree0

03 Oct 2016 23:42:45
Love Zouma's pace but he isn't phenomenal on the ball, Christensen isn't the fastest but is fundamentally sound. Ideally we need someone who is capable of leading the line, is a good distributor, and somewhat mobile. Luiz certainly meets the final two but I'm not sure about the first. Bonucci fits the first but I still can't see that being anything beyond a pipedream.

Agree0 Disagree0

07 Oct 2016 22:09:41
Christensen is pretty fast, Tk, especially for a CB. He's got great long strides and covers a lot of ground quickly.

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Oct 2016 10:10:50
Zouma in t great on the ball? yet I remember once him losing it and correcting the error. Other than that I think he's pretty good. Don't remember him giving much away.

Agree1 Disagree0

10 Oct 2016 04:31:17
I guess I wasn't the clearest as I didn't intend to demean the players I just feel that Zouma is more impressive physically while Christensen possesses more technical ability. Were incredibly fortunate to have two centrehalves that are already so developed yet have so much further potential.
