"Left Back"


NotClayMerritt

Left wing striker position.


Servalarian

master of the false number 3 role


Stooperz

Throw him up top. Fuck it.


Cvrpie

Genuinely this i dont see the problem with taking this risk. Not like our forwards currently are doing any better


[deleted]

Alonso is my favorite player (I get a lot of hate lol) but I don't think he'd be good as a striker or at least a lone striker. Maybe with a 4-4-2 and he's a secondary striker, but if he played striker he's too slow to break away like abraham/batshuayi can, and he isn't as strong/tall as Giroud to muscle opponents. He would get double marked by the centerbacks whereas as a LB he doesn't really get marked, and just shows up outside/inside the opponents box and let's one rip from wide. He is by far our best finisher though, better than any our strikers.


Sw3atyGoalz

He’d be pretty good as a left mid/left winger though if we had someone that could overlap while he gets into the box.


OVOYorge

I love his face too. I’m like damn my mans is handsome


[deleted]

He has that killer instinct.


BatumTss

Alonso needs to take the wheel.


EvenGandhiHatesLVG

Fuck me he’s actually our most important player


[deleted]

I would love to see M. Alonso as a back up left winger for us. Its a wild unorthodox option that teams won't expect, a wide target man, something like Mario Mandžukić for Juve in the 2016 period . Tall, physical, strong in the air, great first touch, decent finishing. He could he very useful, however not as a left back!


bianchi26

I actually think it would work out,but i am afraid with Puligod coming back soon we will never see it happen.


Sw3atyGoalz

If we had a good LB that could provide width it could work, but our best option for that is Emerson and he’s not exactly reliable.


IntrepidMeeseeks

What a trump card

Peak Chelsea


weetabix4

Peak chelsea will be when we let in the sloppy goal in the 93rd minute


JuanMataCFC

that can only happen if Divock Origi is on the pitch.

well I believe we have a certain game against Liverpool coming up

Servalarian

fucking best striker in the league


JuanMataCFC

ikr, what was Lamps doing all season not starting him?!


The_Foreign_Pie

All about the system, man is the definition of a player that needs to play in a specific system


TheBlueTango

Yep, as a left-back he can be absolutely dreadful as he gets exposed, but he's flipping crucial for us as a left wing-back


stella__art

Just say fucking ffs

Amopax

What the frick?! I didn't order that. I ordered an Xbox car– eh– remote...


TheBlueTango

So I can't even say flipping now?


The_Foreign_Pie

**NO**


thatstoomuch_man

Just say for flip sake instead of ffs ffs


GreenPickledToad

The last ffs is "for fuck's sake' or 'fir flip's sake'??


The_Foreign_Pie

We will never know.........

Mom might hear him


NotClayMerritt

If you've watched Chelsea with any regularity since 2017, you know the answer to this.


JuanMataCFC

i've only missed about 10 Chelsea games since 2014. my comment was clearly sarcasm.


_go_fuck_y0urself

he knows hes just fishing for upvotes.


Jono_2k4

He was dire in some games before the winter, like the game Vs us in London. Your fullbacks nearly cost you the game.


coolguysufi

Lol what is he lined up as?


tr_24

Left wing back


Sorrypenguin0

Started as LWB but transitioned to LB when we took Tomori off


Sw3atyGoalz

LWB


banksfornades

Left back


AmineKarray

there is a big diffrence between left back and left wing back. for Alonso atleast


gd16dcfc

He was left back when he scored this goal, although playing more like a left winger


AmineKarray

yeah thats a left wing back lmao


BranDaMan16

Has the most confirmed kills in the league too.


rlh17

Lol your ownership has had a bunch of slaves die recently, does that count?

dg2773

Worst driver though


[deleted]

Loves striking walls with his car whilst drunk and killing a woman in the process


[deleted]

genuinely better than batshuayi in every striker aspect


[deleted]

Bats is so below chelsea level


TheBlueTango

Just play him up top with Giroud at this point


mohankohan

Lmao they call this man a defender?


[deleted]

[удалено]


matttargaryen

Learn the definition of murder my friend. And Lloris did the exact same thing just different outcome.


Hufftey

I condemned Lloris’ actions at the time and called for him to dropped, drink driving in any way is disgusting and has no place for it. However I don’t believe Hugo was doing 70 miles an hour in a 30 with passengers in the car. What definition would you prefer, manslaughterer?


matttargaryen

I'm not condoning Alonso's actions in the slightest either. But it's not murder regardless.


[deleted]

Manslaughter it would be in my opinion. You shouldn't be getting this much flak for this. Alonso is a dick and no one should be defending his actions relating to that.

Keeping in line with the standard lack of class Spurs have on the field against Chelsea, Alonso is going to keep scoring against that shit club until he retires

“They call him a murderer actually.” You’re the one making wisecracks about it. Maybe some introspection will stop you from being a complete hypocrite.

ALONSO HATES BOURNEMOUTH LORE GROWS


pastenague

2 goals from saves tipped into his path lol


Servalarian

a good striker is in the right place at the right time


NijjioN

Just look at Agurio, Saurez and Ronaldo... Most of their goals specifically Agurio is somehow being in the right place at right time I have no idea how they do it even on the randomest of bounces. Wish we had that sort of striker, not had someone like that since Drogba or I guess Costa maybe.


enjoytheshow

Costa was always in the right place. Had a great striker mentality


jrryul

TBF Costa scored a lot from the wrong place as well


Jawileth

Robbie keane was actually one of the kings of being in the right place


bumblefck23

He’s clinical. He’s got good positional awareness in the final third. Everyone on r/soccer is treating this as a meme. No, he’s genuinely been our most efficient attacking player by far since the start of the new year


Thegodofreddit

And it’s not the first time Alonso has scored a few poachers goals for us. He’s got bangers too tho.


Sorrypenguin0

He’s operating as a false three


JuanMataCFC

false 3^^2

false 27?

Two great saves and just didn’t get enough on the last one


kye2000

Didn't he score 1 or two last week


JonSnowLovesBlow

One against spurs


miggen

Ramsdale is insane, can we buy him?


Wewladcoolusername69

Good job we have a strong backup striker


MakIRAQ

The amount of pressure they put was immense. Fully deserved.


ottolenghi

Absolutely lethal


toughtitty69

What a toxic thread


Lokcet

You really think people aren't going to bring up the fact that he killed someone?


omukubasam

u mean the goalkeeper


Muhruhwuh

Predatory instincts again.


Lamppost1333

PLAY HIM UP FRONT


idkwhoIam23

Put this guy up front. Fuck all strikers, Marcos alonso to the rescue! This just shows how shit our attack is though.


TIL_I_procrastinate

Batshuai did brilliantly to keep that in play


Dormant_Genius

Almost save of the season wow


zi76

Alonso is saving us right now.

DJMOONPICKLES69

From what I recall he was very close with the family and they didn’t send him to prison as they “didn’t want to lose two children” or something along those lines. Honestly at the end of the day it was a tragic accident resulting from the poor decisions of two kids.


eljustoo

well he paid her family some cash so they dropped the case


Rhino_Thunder

Got a source for that?


[deleted]

The girl who got in the car knowing he was about to drunk drive?


Seanxprt

Yeah, that's a pretty shit stance to take mate.


[deleted]

[удалено]


[deleted]

That not exactly how that happened but okay. The whole story is very tragic but at the end of the day he chose to drink and drive which is unacceptable. I wish instead of making this some sort of anti-chelsea weapon this was actually used to raise awareness about the dangers of drinking and driving and amount of damage it can cause in life, the alonso story isn’t the only one of two people getting in a car and one losing their life due to alcohol, and all together there needs to be a massive change


[deleted]

Don’t remember saying that. It’s pretty simple don’t get in the car with a drunk driver. If you do you’re knowing putting your life in someone’s hands who can barely think. Alonso is a dick for drunk driving but he’s not a murderer. He didn’t hit some random bystander.


[deleted]

ratchkae

Or even his own fucking keeper. I seem to recall Lloris being busted for drunk driving.


YourPupilsDilated

Wow. Just wow. Next thing you'll say that it is girls' fault when they are raped.


[deleted]

You got me that is the same! Even though what I’m saying is that it was her choice to put her life in a drunk driver’s hands so actually that would be quite the opposite of rape where no consent is given at all.


SkepticSlakoth

The feeling is mutual, I think.


JuanMataCFC

can't really blame u for that tbh :)


[deleted]

No I mean he is literally a murderer, can't blame anyone really


matttargaryen

Well he isn't, murder is premeditated. Geez y'all Spurs fans never seem to care unless he's going well for us lmao


[deleted]

Spurs fans love Lloris though, you know, the drunk driving-through-central-London Lloris.


[deleted]

Do you know what murder even is??? Do you even know what happened or do you like to just say random bs every time he scores?


DrogbaSpeaksTheTruth

You can't say literally if the statement isn't factual. Manslaughter. He fucked up and made a terrible decision, but he didn't murder a girl.


blackburns_rovers

I think all football fans do to be honest


BoxOfNothing

Got to feel bad for Ramsdale

Frank should play him as a striker.

Great effort from the goalkeeper.

Holy fuck Bournemouth #13 just watching the play for 60 seconds. Had so many chances to help defend and clear the ball out and all he’s doing is walking around pointing at people

Deadliest left back in the history of the game
