I want to thank you for the rubbish articles you have written lately because when i see that you have written something, i realize i should stop wasting my time on this site. As a Chelsea supporter you shouldnt be hating any of our players, especially the youngster who have barely played i.e. Salah. Here is what real journalism looks like http://english.ahram.org.eg/NewsContent/6/53/115653/Sports/Talents-Abroad/Exclusive-Chelsea-will-not-release-Mohamed-Salah,-.aspx
Article was posted today.
So Salah gets an assist in a game and you take the time to lambaste him in an article. Willian has a much worse game today in much better weather conditions and you completely neglect it? Do you really think that by getting rid of competition it would make Willian better? Im not saying Willian is bad but im not a fan of his decision making. Definitely the weak link from the starting line up.
What makes you think Mikel is not world class, Garry? Name one defensive midfielder other than Matic or Sergio who is as good as him defensively. It is not like he cannot pass either, one just needs to watch Nigeria's games where he creates literally everything. What he does may not be as flashy as say, a Kroos or Fabregas but he is one of the best DMs in the world at the moment. He would start for quite literally every club other than maybe Barca and Chelsea for they have Matic and Sergio, the only 2 DMs better than him.
Please go thru with this Chelsea combination and let us now what You think of it, If it is Good Enough, u can Publish it for More Opinions
I am putting forward this combination which incorporates the best Talents chelsea have, please comment.
I have included Thomas Kalas, Patrick van aanholt, Nathan Ake, and other Youngsters Because we need to give youth a chance.
4 Defenders – RB – Ivanovic / Azpi / Kalas
LB – Ashley Cole / Bertrand / Van anholt
CB – Terry / Cahill / luiz / Ake
Midfield – This is what Iam Excited About
Ramires, oscar, Mata – Will always start in Right of Midfield, Alternate combination ( Van ginkel, Loftus Cheek, Piazon)
Ramires, and oscar – Because both are excellent in their work rate, tackles, and equally effective going forward, would have to alternate between them as to when 1 goes forward the other takes on the role of Defensive Midfielder protecting the back 4. This Way, Mata would be more likely playing the role of xavi or Iniesta dictating the play from midfield with his creativity and vision and covers up his perceived aalack of Defensive abilities and also makes the best use of his skills.
We could well do without a specialist Defensive Midfielder because we have seen Both Mikel and Lampard being Ineffective, and atleast 8 Players on the Field will be Involved in Defensive play when we lose ball ( If we exclude the striker and Mata and the GK), AND IN THE OFFENSIVE PLAY , ATLEAST 8 PLAYERS WILL BE INVOLVED AGAIN – IF AS USUAL THE Right Back AND Left Back , BOMB FORWARD, THEN ONLY THE 2 Centre Backs ALONG WITH THE GK CAN BE RELATIVELY LESS MOBILE
Left winger – Hazard / schurrle
Right Winger – Willian / KDB
STRIKER – Torres / Lukaku
Please comment on this Formation and if it Finds Favour , then Hope Jose Thinks about it on the training ground atleast.
Please Only constructive Debates and Opinions Anticipated
Thank you! I will definitely read through it once I find some time. I'm looking forward to seeing how the list turned out.
No, I just removed the two empty horizontal rows below each player's stat line. I'm guessing you didn't notice they were there. I clicked on a cell in the empty row, then right-clicked and went to "Remove row."
No probs, Garry! Glad I could help out.
You can definitely try! Any chances I might get you over to Manchester United's side?
No problem! I look forward to seeing the outcome once the list is ready.
No problem, Garry. Twas a good read!
