The Thiago impact is what i'd hoped. Not just for his individual performances, it's the impact he's had on Zouma, who's been brilliant. That knock on effect has meant Rudiger knows he has to keep the standards high when he comes in (which he has been doing), we haven't seen much of Tomori but i'd like to think he's been learning a few things from the old master in training.Frank has realised that defending comes first.
Thiago Silva is making the old boss question the decision to let him go on a free one. Of course, if they did actually let him go. Maybe he wanted the new challenge. I see he has looked great for the most part. He was the signing that impressed me most at the time. You talk about mistakes. It looks like Mendy has sorted you out as well. He doesn't look to be making any mistakes. De Gea has upped his game this season. For what that is worth.
I'm watching the game against Newcastle now. Looks like a bit of a walk in the park. Yeah, more than just a bit. haha. Another piece of excellence from Werner. I knew he would be a hit on the greatest league. Another win.
United are unpredictable as ever. Or maybe that is me using a cover up word for inconsistent as ever. In one game they look like world beaters then the next they look like Dover. Or Ben Dover. Roy Keane going on about their faces telling him they don't care.
Yeah Newcastle away, 12.30 Saturday kick off, they had two weeks to prepare whilst the Chelsea players went off to the four corners of the earth playing international games.. It was a recipe for disaster, but it was a fairly straight forward win. Should of been 6 or 7, but 2-0 is fine by me.
It's funny, this Chelsea team feels like Lampard. His personality, the way he played, the great teams he was part of etc.. I think that's the recipe for Solskjaer. He was part of great Man Utd sides, a role player, hard worker etc.. If he can stamp that onto Man Utd, they'll be laughing.
