    • @concorde and @cb55869

      slowleftarm thinks you guys must be dc united fans, too. it’s obviously the only reason someone wouldn’t want to throw miazga to the wolves. or something.

      • Not at all – although the guy above is a DC United fan and admitted as much. He has to get thrown in some time. If Cahill or Ivanovic pulled a hamstring today, he was going out there. So Chelsea was willing to throw him to the wolves today.

      • For the record I am a NY and PSG fan, have disliked DC since that amazing playoff series in ’96, though I always had a sweet spot for Eddie Pope… All for Miazga making his debut, so I agree with anyone who says “throw him to the wolves,” but this match was really high level. Chelsea’s defensive organization was impressive.

  1. I like Matts game and hope for the best in his career, but to think he can step in midseason in the champions league no less and be successful is ridiculous.

  2. I don’t understand the rush to get Miazga on the field. He’s still in preseason form, doing 2-a-days to catch up. Not only that, he’s probably still not yet fully familiar with Chelsea’s defensive tactics, especially offside traps and so on. Putting him on for anything more than a cameo is inviting disaster in Chelsea’s most important competition.

    • People are excited to see a young US international in the Champions League. Who can blame them? I forgot you were a DC fan so maybe that explains your post. Still smarting from the 4 RBNY shutouts against your boys last season I take it?

  3. Surreal that, for at least today, Champions League action involves an American. Nevermind that Miazga is riding the pine, he is on Chelsea’s bench at PSG. If luck goes his way, he could be going head to head with Zlatan, Di Maria, and Cavani.
