Double Pivot




Keeping this quick and simple... I am fairly worried about our CM pairing at the moment as I am sure many of us are. Does anyone have any thoughts on this subject?

First and foremost, Frank is one of my favorite players of all time, and he is one of Chelsea's best. However, it pains me to say I just don't think he will hack it week after week. He often gets sucked high up the pitch which leaves things exposed through the middle.

While I have never been huge on Mikel he is fairly efficient, strong and has great stamina. After watching the game against Juve for a second go through I am just not comfortable with him either. He gave the ball away a few times cheaply and in the end in cost us dearly.

I like the 4-2-3-1 A lot and considering the attacking talent we have it does make sense to continue playing in this system. However it is so important to find the right 2 players to play in the center in front of the defense. These 2 guys for me are the key to our season. I am confident we will get goals for a variety of players as we have already. I am also fairly confident that our defense will shape up as the season goes by ( I would like to see Azpi tho).

Perhaps Lampard will show some more grit and discipline and they will figure things out...

Any thoughts?
