I've not posted on here in a long time (opened a new account as I can't remember my email address or password) .

But anyway today's performance was poor to say the least.

In my opinion we need a new dominant CB to partner Tomori, Tomori has the pace to recover situations that Zouma etc lack. Who that CB we buy could be I've honestly no idea, but we need someone physically dominant, especially aerially. Maybe Koulibaly?

Our midfield is okay, but once again we lack someone with a physical presence. Think to the days of Ballack, Essien etc. We need someone who can do a bit of everything physically and also who is capable of driving forward. Who that player could be I'm not too sure once again.

And last but not least, we could have 100 corners a game and I still wouldn't expect us to score from one. Our set piece delivery is awful to say the least. The amount of corners we get and absolutely waste is such a let off to our opponents.

But all in all we can't complain with how our season is going so far, currently sitting in the top 4 and hopefully through to the knockout stages in the Champions League come midweek. Any of us would have taken that at this stage of the season. Wobbles were always expected this season, let's hopefully get a few new faces in during January and cement that top 4 spot and push as far in Europe as possible, because as we know anything is possible on European nights.

C'mon Chelsea!

I agree on Koulibaly mate but I’d like to see Rudiger and Tomori together first see how they do. Christensen should be sold for a new CB IMO.

Agree on midfield too hopefully Loftus-Cheek helps when he returns which can’t be soon enough. Kovacic has to always stay on current form he is absolutely unreal.

Physical player, capable of driving perfect? One name: Ruben Loftus Cheek.

Hopefully when Loftus Cheek gets back to fitness he can stay healthy, he had so many niggly problems before his bad injury. If he can stay fit, like you guys mentioned he would be that perfect physical midfield play to drive forward!

{Ed002's Note - I am not so sure he will ever be able to play all of more than the occasional full match. He has a back problem that there appears right no to be no permanent fix for.}

Personally we need a very good CB but who is that player?

For me, Rudiger gets into the starting 11 immediately on his return. Rudiger is very vocal and maybe we need that right now and he is someone that can lead our defence right now.

We have seen plenty of mistakes from Zouma, AC and Tomori. Too many in my opinion. It's clear that Lampard is getting frustrated himself because he has changed his stance from using soft words to the media when we make errors and is now getting firmer. Today he branded the defensive mistakes 'ridiculous'. And you are right in that Tomori's injection of pace makes him recover situations more often than not and unlike Zouma and AC.

I think in midfield we are fine with Kova, Jorginho, Kante, Mount and when RLC returns.

We need a few players in January to help us achieve our Top 4 target. So far it remains on track despite the turbulence of recent times.

It a massive shame hearing that Ed2. I suppose he will play part of matches and then be replaced. Damn.

edoo2 with some sad news, seems like we might have to try and sell in the summer if this is true which is a shame.

{Ed0666's Note - I’m not sure anyone will buy a player who can’t finish matches?
