Is it a back 4 or is CHO playing RWB with James at RCB?

Seen that it’s on espn or so abroad but none of the stream sites I use seem to have it or even the united game.

He's been playing well for us so far this season, but my word Alonso is a spanner (and that's giving him the benefit of the doubt) . Whatever logic he might be employing (and to a degree, what Rudiger wrote in his Players Tribune article, as well as the stances of players like Zaha and Toney is relevant here), to have the arrogance to casually say you've not consulted your Black teammates at all. I mean, honestly. It really does leave a bitter taste.

Also didn't know about the homicide charge until reading up on his history after this latest act of idiocy. I'd be happily shot of him now.

Agree0 0Disagree

22 Sep 2021 17:14:03
You are looking for problems where none exist.
Alonso has been our player of the season so far and long may that continue.

Agree0 0Disagree

22 Sep 2021 17:27:09
Why does alonso have to run his ideas past anyone when it’s the same message said differently? BLM stand and want more than just equal rights which not all people agree with, alonso’s msg is the same that we’re against racism in all forms, and it’s got the msg spoke about again, his driving offence is appalling and I don’t know the details so won’t comment.

Strasbourg – Typical response from a particular type of person (white, male presumably) . I group you with a section of the fanbase that are the reason I don't attend the Bridge any more. It's embarrassing, frankly. Question – if it was an issue that mattered to you, would you have different feelings about him playing? What if he was accused of grooming young girls, for example?

Matt – Why does a white man, who has never experienced racism, have to run his idea of changing a gesture in support of his Black teammates past them before doing so? When the whole issue is so loaded? You can't be serious. Basic human decency, perhaps? Caring? The purpose of a united front is meant to exactly that – unity. Not actively sowing discord. I think the backing for Alonso from Nigel Farage says everything that needs to be said.

Taking the knee has nothing overtly to do with BLM, by the way, besides the fact that BLM would support it as a form of action – see Martin Luther King Jr circa 1965.

Agree0 0Disagree

22 Sep 2021 18:22:24
I’m not sure what Alonso being in some peoples view the player of the season has got to do with the point being made.

I’m personally not that fussed how a player expresses his view about the issue of racism. Although for some strange reason I think it looks better if the team expresses a united demonstration.

Agree0 0Disagree

22 Sep 2021 18:43:58
Because his white he hasn’t experienced racism / discrimination, that sums it up perfectly?, and maybe alonso done some research into BLM and didn’t like idea of defunding the police and the thought that maybe it divides and pits people against one another than uniting against the big picture that is cavemen who are racist and abuse people from behind a keyboard, . His message is clear and it’s against racism, I agree with this msg, Alonso or zaha or any other player have to explain there self when like I said it’s the same msg. and taking of the knee has everything to do with BLM as in this instance it’s supportive of there movement in the last 2 years,

Agree0 0Disagree

22 Sep 2021 18:50:23
He is a against racism, he is still standing up and highlighting the fact he is against racism, if he points or kneels the msg is the same, his actions have racism back as a talking point and highlighting it, does it matter if he drops to a knee,

Agree0 0Disagree

EdW, your falling into the trap of saying there is a stereotype for racism. There is NOT.

Through my long life I’ve seen racism in many forms and also been the victim of racism from people within my own race.

Some idiots at Chelsea still exist and when I hear it I report it. I give the club the seat number and if possible a photo of any culprit.

I have posted my views on this site many times about some of the vial comments made at football grounds and sometimes on this site. The Eds do a fantastic job of editing most of the crap out and that’s why enjoy this site.

Tolerance is something i try to practice as well as preach but I’m happy enough for people to express their views in a way they see fit as long as it’s not offensive.

Agree0 0Disagree

22 Sep 2021 19:05:48
Tom, it’s gone from football banter to politics, if you don’t take the knee your racist, if your a white male your privileged and apart of the systemic racism problem in this country, being against racism isn’t enough, you have to drop to a knee and feel guilty if your not a minority, the vast majority want the same respect and chances and the few and I mean very few, want revenge, and to say that because Nigel fsrage agreed with it sums it up is so dumb it’s in real, Nigel / corbyn / Biden / trump or whoever have all said things I have agreed with and have all said things I completely disagree with. Take a person for what he says not who he is,

Agree0 0Disagree

22 Sep 2021 19:06:28
You know absolutely nothing about me or my philosophy so kindly keep your idiotic opinions to yourself.
Alonso has made it crystal clear what his feelings are by pointing to the badge on his shirt.
I would wager you aren't black because a lot of people I know who are think taking the knee is past its sell by date and has had little or no real effect.
But if it assuages your and others guilt so that nothing effective is done. Fine.

I’m not one to look at negatives but I fear we might become too dependant on Lukaku as an offensive threat.

Havertz I feel like in the Spanish or German league would be a world beater I really do, he’s just really struggling with the physicality in the EPL, he’s still relatively young  and I do believe he’ll only get better but so far he just lacks that ability to take the game to opponents like Hazard used to do at his age or even Oscar. He plays it too safe and not he almost doesn’t back himself to take a defender on, take a shot or play that « killer pass ».

Mount on the other hand is almost the opposite as he tries to do too much I feel and almost feels like he always wants to grab the headlines, needs to work on his end product.

I think we have the most balanced squad in the league with incredible depth early days still and a long way to go but I would hate for us to hope Big Rom or our defenders bail us out of every game as we clearly have the talented attackers who just need to step up and play their role if we are really going to push for the top. I hope we see more of Jorgi, Kova and NG behind Rom and Timo I believe that’s our strongest combination.

Agree0 0Disagree

22 Sep 2021 18:44:47
Eli interesting post, most of which I agree with. Harvertz is a completely different type of player to Hazard. I am confident that he will become a great asset to the team. I agree with you about relying on Rom, we don’t have a back up out-and-out striker to cover for him. As for Mount he has been disappointing this season. I think a lot of defenders have got wise to him collecting by the ball and spinning off the opponent and as you say his end product and judgement inside the box has been poor and I am not sure playing so far forward is his best position.

Agree0 0Disagree

22 Sep 2021 08:20:19
I think we will go fairly strong tonight.3-5-2

Kepa

Big Trevor
AC
Rudiger

James
Saul
Kova
Mount
Chilly

Ziech
Werner.

Agree0 0Disagree

22 Sep 2021 10:21:46
I hope Mount doesn't start he needs a break and RLC needs a game.
I would prefer Rudiger/ Kova to be saved for the weekend as well but I can see them starting unfortunately.

Agree1 0Disagree

22 Sep 2021 12:08:14
I think we will play 352 as well. This my prediction for the starting XI:

Kepa

Trevoh Christensen Sarr

James Jorgi RLC Saul Chilly

Werner CHO


I think RLC will have a more advanced role and join Werner in attack, while CHO drifts to the left a bit.

Agree0 0Disagree

22 Sep 2021 12:44:58
My team for tonight.

Kepa

CHO, Chalaboa, Rudiger, Sarr, Chilwell

James, Saul.

RLC, Ziyech

Werner.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed's Note - Ed001 has posted a new article entitled, Review Of The Day 21st September 2021

Agree0 0Disagree

22 Sep 2021 10:33:18
Agreed Tom, and I will be going tonight. Werner and Chilly must start, James also, and Trevoh C. and Saul given another chance v Villa after nightmare debut. Presume Ziyech and Kepa will start too. So that leaves question of whether Barkley might be given at least some minutes against club he initially did quite well for when on loan and who of the team who lined up v Spuds will play. Couple of the defenders presumably. Havertz if not too tired might also benefit from some more game time. not sure about Mount.

Agree0 0Disagree

22 Sep 2021 12:09:43
I’m very envious of you being able to attend the match tonight JBS. I hope you enjoy the night and we come away with a win.

These games create opportunities for players.

COME on MY MIGHTY BLUES.

Agree0 0Disagree

22 Sep 2021 06:44:25
I'm really looking forward to tonight's game. A chance to see some players who haven't featured much this season will be interesting.

I have a feeling we might see James as a DM but I definitely think Saul will start.

I also like to look out for young opposition players and I hope the Villa 41, I think his name is Ramsey plays tonight.

Agree0 0Disagree

22 Sep 2021 10:34:47
PS what I meant about not sure about Mount is whether he should have complete rest or some time to get back sharpness in final third.

Agree0 0Disagree

21 Sep 2021 18:33:57
I'm quick to criticise so I'll praise two players I think after the first few games deserve it, alonso and kovecic, I want Chilwell in there but at the moment alonso deserves to be staring, Chilwell may have chance tomorrow, and kov has added some assists to his game so hopefully it continues.

Agree2 0Disagree

21 Sep 2021 19:39:23
Alonso is in the form of his life, I must confess, Chilwell has to wake up indeed.

Agree0 0Disagree

21 Sep 2021 20:04:56
Alonso has played well so far this season.

Chilwell has to take his chance when it eventually comes along. In the meantime he just has to train hard.

Agree0 0Disagree

21 Sep 2021 22:03:13
Matt you’re right Alonso and Kova have been our most consistent players so far this season. One note of caution, just because Kova and Rudiger have scored this season doesn’t change my opinion that they should be fined if the shoot😃.
