Jorginho Myth

During the international break of boredom I watched "the debate" show on youtube. Paul Merson(a chelsea fan)was talking about last season and brought up Jorginho for reasons i'm not sure but the consensus was how Jorginho has been excellent this year under Frank, yet Sarri was lambasted last season for continually playing him and how he wanted dropping last year, with Mers alluding to Jorginho playing better this year under Frank.

This is a total myth. Jorginho has actually been fairly average this season, but the second half/last third of last year he was fantastic, his best form for us so far. Most chelsea fans knew of his importance to the team and the quality that he possesses. Why the media are trying to spin this narrative that Jorginho has suddenly improved this year i'll never know.

It reminds me of the people who all last year were experts on kantes position and how he needs to "revert to his best DM position" .

I wonder if Frank keeps playing him in the same position, like in his MOTM type performance in the super cup, if they will question Frank all year about it too?

Don't think he suits the pressing style, lack of legs probably why he gets a yellow nearly every game. I'd prefer us to try a Kante Kovacic duo in midfield.

But with Jorginho you do get him talking on the pitch and encouraging his team mates which is rare in this current bunch.

He's been decent so far this year,same as last year.but thats all.
I think that he's good with the younger guys around and also N'golo,otherwise he gets found out for pace,plus he should be a bit more adventurous in front of goal,he really should get a few more goals to his name.

I think he was great end of last year, better than this year, and can see him improving as the season goes on.

I expected a certain amount of that from fans, but the number of "experts" who've been involved with the game for years who continually parroted that opinion really shocked me last year.

Lets take a player renounced for his intense pressing and inhuman levels of energy and put him in a position where he sits back and only covers half of the pitch? Astonishing levels of ignorance.

I don’t think he’s been better than last year but he’s certainly been far more progressive with his passing. Under Sarri he was clearly under instructions to keep possession and did so through a lot of square passes.

This season he’s happier to go move the ball forward more quickly, the Super Cup was a good example of that, incisive through balls to both Pulisic and Kovacic that he wasn’t attempting regularly last year.

In regards to Jorginho, last years talking point was such a cynical manufactured talking point. Likewise, the same with Kovacic who all of a sudden has been gaining lots of praise.

Pundits are sadly in the job to make up talking points through the season; both to improve views and sell newspapers.

Jorginho is utter rubbish. Weak, lazy, mediocre nothing player. Him and Barkley can fack off.
