Thoughts on Tammy guys? We do need a new striker. I'm a Tammy fan but don't think he's top level quality although our wingers don't create enough chances. Dembele seems number one target but I'd like to see the club go for Raul Jimenez if it was up to me. Still early days for Tammy so I think an experienced complete striker like Jimenez would teach him more also.

has to be some1 clinical if your talking about replacing tammy some1 clinical like werner etc but your not gaurenteed hel be clinical in pl. we need to concentrate on a world class winger or potentially rising world class winger . JADON SANCHO number 1 target. i would take jiminez to challenge tammy . id also look for a creative midfielder who l take d burden off tammy a bit an chip in with goals something d current crop can't seem to do.

I think Tammy is still learning his craft; I guess no striker hits his prime at age 22. Based on what he has done so far, I give him pass mark.

As a PS to post have just sent in defending TA - who is surely one of the better young strikers around - I would still like to see Giroud used more in remaining part of the season not least featuring in Bayern Munich games where his European experience v valuable and of course CFC to bring in additional fire power in form of likes of Timo W. and Sancho in the summer.

Not sure why but my first post not on before my PS but the point was that the article in Pride of London (9 November last year) was arguing that statistically TA in very good company with those strikers who score a lot of goals as a result of taking a lot of shots and getting into many positions to score even if missing chances. Apparently in Champions League TA conversion rate v low, but still above Messi's and Ronaldo's. though may be hard to believe.

We're talking about a young player who has been involved in 16 goals in the league this season (13 goals and three assists) . He is only going to get better.

It's short sighted to want to replace him, but he needs help and another striker who can score goals playing alongside him.

I posted a week or so ago about fans changing opinions on our young players over the course of the season. From just hoping they get a chance, to thinking they're top quality and then thinking they're never going to be good enough.

Tammy and Mason Mount are the two that seem to have been targeted the most with negativity. Too many fans are concerned about immediate success and not building a team for the future.

Agree J this is a building process with a young team and manager though all want some additional quality in terms of attacking/ scoring firepower added in the summer.

01 Feb 2020 19:32:01
Let me tell you which player makes an immediate impact at Chelsea - Jack Grealish. The guys is absolutely brilliant.

Tammy is still young and has shown plenty of the range of skills needed to be a top class striker. Interestingly, his conversion rate when compared to others may not be as bad as some - including me - have sometimes wondered when seeing him miss a great chance/ s (as happened again today) .

Here's a link below (from Pride of London) though to a piece comparing him with some other top strikers, reflecting that he does have poor conversion rate in Champion's League but that Messi does too! So clearly it's also about how/ whether a striker can get into positions to miss as well as score if this makes sense.

But point is that top teams usually have considerable goal threats from a range of players and more than one trusted striker and at the moment so much of the burden of expectation on TA given lack of assistance in this respect is to play every important game and score more often than he does.

like i keep saying the rest of the team needs to chip in with goals to take the pressure off tammy he can be and he will be good enough.

01 Feb 2020 21:24:50
Unless things improve we must sign a first choice top striker and let Tammy develop at a slower pace.
He has been grossly overplayed for his first season at the top level which has been obvious for a few months now.
Likewise someone good enough to start in Mounts role who hasn't delivered a goal or assist for months.
Similar situation with CHO.
The only youth player who looks capable of featuring regularly is Reece.

hard to disagree there turvey but again i think for the first goal james got caught a bit flat footed an it allowed the shot away he can be beaten a little easy at times when some1 drops the shoulder in the box and changes direction but he's learning and i don't blane him too much for that goal to he fair just making a point hel keep learning defensively and its were he probably needs improving on slightely as his forward play and crossing is phenominal the kid has ridicolous talent.

02 Feb 2020 11:14:00
As we were looking at Werner, Cavani and Mertens, I think we will be bringing in a player that can also play wide - this will allow Tammy to continue as No.1 CF but also have cover.
