  1. Wow.... Very, very underwhelming from a perspective of international exposure for the club. An aspect I believe the club continues to not be successful in and represents the largest gap between the top European clubs and where we want to be. Financials aside, this is hardly a step forward from the club from a branding perspective.
  2. Interesting analysis: https://www.premierleague.com/news/1635357 Compensating for aerial weakness Another advantage Chelsea have when using three centre-backs is the extra height it gives them when defending set-pieces and crosses. This has been an area of weakness throughout Lampard's first season in charge at Stamford Bridge. Most aerial goals conceded 2019/20 Headed goals Goals from corners Club Total Club Total AVL 11 AVL 9 WOL 9 NOR 9 CHE 8 CHE 8 NOR 8 MUN 8 WHU 8 Meanwhile, Sunday's opponents Everton have scored the most goals from corners, with nine, and boast the twin aerial threats of Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Richarlison. So despite beating Liverpool 2-0 in the FA Cup this week with a back four, it may be prudent for Lampard to consider reverting to a back three. Bringing in an extra centre-back, while releasing Alonso and James to play further forward, could pay off against the Toffees.
  3. Sig wouldn't of been on the deck if he wasn't fouled. It's a foul anywhere on the pitch and a yellow card.
  4. Looked a fantastic player at the Copa America 2019. Fingers crossed as he is a profile of player we don't have, would be happy to see him push for Walcott's spot.
  5. Anyone else notice how slow we are to shut down players in our defensive 3rd when the ball is out wide. Sidibe and Walcott particularly guilty of this. Players seem to jog to close the space and hold there position too safely back, giving them way to much respect, and enabling them to get time to pick there crosses.
  6. I'm a Davies fan, thought it was one of his poorer games and felt like a weaker link overall in the match, compared to his recent performances. He had a couple of bad turnovers due to errors, and he let the opposition move further up the pitch than necessary at times from poor jockying position looking to knick the ball away.
  7. December 2019. The Everton midfield is depleted. What is the answer in January. Recruit, or wait on the injuries? My view is Gomes is 12 months from fully match fit, and 18 months from the player we love. We need another star.
  8. Cahill - 19 goals and 9 assists this decade Baines
  9. Fixed: Heavily linked: Ancelotti, Emery, moyes Reportedly out: Poch, Rafa, kovac, marcelino, Gallardo, v pereira Quiet: Arteta, Howe, Dyche, Wilder, Ten Hag, Jardim, Postecoglou
  10. Yokohama operate on the 10th highest budget in the J League, and when Ange took over in the previous season, there were bottom 3 on the table. They also hadn't won the league since 2004.The City Football Group outside of Europe does not dominate there leagues as a rule. Unai Emery could be ok, but there is no excusing this season with Arsenal. It has been terrible. Number of shots Arsenal have faced in each PL game this season:Newcastle: 9Burnley: 18 Liverpool: 25Tottenham: 13Watford: 31Villa: 14Man Utd: 16Bournemouth: 10 Sheffield Utd: 8Palace: 10 Wolves: 25Leicester: 25Saints: 21225 shots faced across 13 matches!
  11. Interview with Ange and opinions from ex PL players Thomas Sorensen & Michael Bridges. https://sport.optus.com.au/articles/os2541/thomas-sorensen-david-moyes-id-rather-have-ange-at-everton Opinions from Harry Redknapp. Sometimes club owners take a gamble - that was the case with Arsenal way back (with Wenger) and for somebody like Ange Postecoglou to get an opportunity at a good European club, whether in England or elsewhere, you just need that leap of faith,” said Redknapp. When you win a title in Japan you’re going to get noticed, especially with a club that’s part of the City Football Group (owners of Manchester City). The Socceroos breezed past Redknapp’s men 5-1 in a one-sided FIFA World Cup qualifier, leaving the quick-witted and convivial 72-year-old impressed with Postecoglou’s free-wheeling ideology. “They were far too good for us and while you’d expect a home team to attack, I liked the way they approached the game,” he recalled. “They played out from the back, the passing was slick and they really took the game to us. “I liked what I saw and he’s obviously taken that with him to Japan and found a winning formula there, playing the way he wants to and leading a team that scores a lot of goals (a J1 high of 68 this season). “Why couldn’t he come to a place like England, if that’s what he wants to do, and do well at a high level?” https://theworldgame.sbs.com.au/postecoglou-could-make-jump-to-premier-league-says-redknapp
  12. Many players turned down playing for Moyes at United. His transfer window was a disaster.
  13. I'm just going to keep mentioning Ange Postecoglou hoping Marcel checks the forum's at bed time for a giggle.

  14. To get Pochettino, which I hope Everton do. Money can talk. https://www.90min.com/posts/6372559-the-11-highest-paid-managers-in-european-football
