    Dramatic end to wolves and Newcastle. Wolves equalize on the last move

    Big mistake by Dubravka. Let the ball slip right through his hands for Boly to head it in. Fun finish to the game though.

    A healthy Thiago and James are HUGE for us especially with the Liverpool tie coming up next week. Glad to finally have a majority of our guys healthy.

    Also, wtf kind of rehab did Tolisso do?! He's a full participant in practice just 4.5 months after ACL surgery. That's faster than Adrian Peterson's miraculous recovery

    I recorded the Chelsea City thrashing but didn't watch it live. Before I deleted it off the dvr, I peeped it, fast forwarding & rewinding here & there.

    A couple of things stand out... ross barkley sucks. He looked like he was gonna flourish under Sarri when the campaign started but nah. Kovacic isn't what was hyped. Maybe it's the system but he's all hype. One of the glaring things is he's got terrible stamina. Sarri is kinda stuck with these 2 & subs one for the other.

    I thought he was a deent defender but Marcos Alonso is a wingback & isn't a very good full back in terms of defending.

    Higuain & Jorginho were stuck on islands by themselves... Higuain was stuck out front with pretty much no service & Jorginho was asked to cover too much ground because the back 4 for this team sucks.

    Rudiger, Alonso, Cesar, & Luiz suck. Just basic defending, collectively & individually, they suck. They do such a bad job of reading a play & marking players, they react terribly... Both flanks were left basically wide open... City kept creeping behind Chelsea pretty much all game.

    Not sure Sarri has been reading them the riot act or not behind closed doors but this team's biggest problem is it doesn't have the heart to defend. They've collectively switched off. Not sure if they're tuning Sarri out at this point.

    Lastly, Hazard definitely looks like he's checked out.

    I hope he does get s#@t canned bcs I would take Sarri at Barca in a heart beat.

    Sarri's brand of football is appealing when his teams are playing well, but his apparent inability to command a locker room should be worrying for any potential suitor.

    Claims he hates the league, yet watches every match. Even the ones that people who love the league don't watch.

    ****** ****** plz... I told ya’ll dummies I liked Sarri a lot so I watch his Chelsea team from time to time. Plus he was playing against Pep. I def don’t watch “every game” bcs the football is terrible to watch. There was literally nothing else on tv so I threw that in while I worked. Since losing beIN I tried watching Prem games but I gave that ish up late Nov. Football in that league is f***ing horrendous.

    Mans psk out here sending people footy kits someone hook him up with their login for the beIN app so he can watch La Liga (I use someone else’s myself or I would.) The fact he watched Newcastle v Wolves should alarm the whole thread that he’s on the brink.

    Also psk it’s 2019 fam if you really want to watch La Liga matches you can find ways to :lol: But someone hooking you up would make it easier.

    Anyone care to do their pre-Ro16 power rankings for the CL?

    I only really watch RM so I can’t give a meaningful one. Think it would be fun to see it now and then how things pan out by the semis.

    Maybe it’s the environment at Arsenal, but I think Szcesny has had a great spell in Italy. Could be that Serie A is just a worse league than the PL. Ramsey should do fine. I just feel like Juve could have a better midfield if they actually spent.
