    Only caught the last 10 mins or so of the Chelsea game. What shape were Chelsea playing, or was it just chasing the game tactics! Morata looked to be very wide at times. Is there a chance the front 3 could have Morata wide and the batman through the middle?

    He is certainly going well in Preseason anyway

    Batman? Ya, he could turn out to be a very interesting option yet.

    He's the fantasy option we deserve but not the one we need right now. So we'll scout him. Because he can take it. Because he's not our cult FPL hero. He's a silent striker, a watchful predator. A dark knight.

    Yeah pre-season has definitely looked like he'll be first choice so he's in my latest draft, to rotate with J-Rod

    As I mentioned at the start he is exactly the type of player dyche loves. A team player with a bit of physicality. I think he will play every game when fit and more times than not at centre forward. He is better than Barnes and vokes.

    J-Rod scored again for WBA against Burton. Changed from him to Austin a couple of days ago, might be time to change back.

    Is he playing wide or through the middle.

    Martina started at RB. Though if I remember correctly he figured alot in the Europa League while at Saints, but not so much in the league itself

    Everton didn't look great . Lack of pace in the attacking positions .

    I only saw the last 30 minutes and Sandro was on then, he had some nice touches but didn't look quick. Rooney was deep and was poor . Klaasen not a quick player either. I'd say they will be fairly easy to defend against but a solid side. Its a wait and see with them anyway because of fixtures.

    Conte has said this is his 'best team'

    Team to face Inter: Courtois; Azpilicueta, David Luiz, Cahill (c); Moses, Kante, Fabregas, Alonso; Willian, Batshuayi, Morata. #CFCTour

    Is batman going to be an option at this rate !


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 8,502 spock.


    Definitely a 343 with Morata and Willian wide of Batshuayi.

    Batshuayi looking an interesting prospect.

    Getting interesting yeah. If he starts well it could be Haz back in for Willian.

    Chelsea 2 down to Inter after an hour.

    Looks like a first choice team too, both Fabregas and Willian started. However, first sub on 54 minutes was Rudiger on for Alonso, who is supposed to have had a 'mare.

    Another poor defensive performance from Alonso
    Good FF defender not so much in real life
    Be amazed if conte doesn't sign another LWB


    Also Darlow starts for Newcastle :(

    A goal back for Chelsea - Kondogbia with one of the best own goals you'll ever see
