    It's always their year
  3. Transfer Talk Topic

    If. But right now it is Costa out, Morata, Giroud and Jorginho in. You could add JT and Matic out, but also half a dozen defenders in. Jorginho in, no one out, is actually better than most PL clubs. Sure it is much much harder to do deals right now. Plenty of clubs have as much or more money than we do. And it is not as though this is our moment to make some final tweaks to a PL winning squad. That was 2 to 4 years ago, and maybe 2 to 4 years into the future. Funny that Liverpool think their moment is now.

    Haha! Yes *aesthetics* is what it's all about 😜 Indeed although he hasn't got the teeth either 😬
  6. World Cup 2018

    Because I recall you were a fan of his aesthetically....... I suppose the upside is that he'll look less like Rylan Clark......

    If the window closes having lost Costa, Willian, Hazard, Courtois and Morata all the space of a year and also only bringing in Jorginho, a GK, and a replacement CF then the person in charge of transfers has to be fired. And it’s not even up for discussion IMO. I would classify that as clear evidence of the club being unable to negotiate/close deals - especially comparing it to the transfer record prior to last summer’s window. We are quite clearly behind Liverpool who are definitely supposed to improve, and we were already behind United and City. Tottenham are the only ones that we might be better than in terms of squad, and that won’t be true anymore if we lose Courtois, Hazard, Willian and Morata IMO.
  8. Chelsea Reserve & Youth Team

    I guess if I was the new manager of a club and introduced to a young man who had just done his ACL, I'd say something pretty positive to him too. I chose my words carefully, Conte may well have said something, but it might not have meant very much. The good thing about him is that wherever he has gone, he has almost always been a first team regular.
  9. Chelsea Reserve & Youth Team

    Yes slightly odd comment. Did he make the injury worse and hence was out for longer then first antidipated? I'd like to remember something alng those lines but still - why would Conte include Kane after a 9 month injury lay-off?
  10. Squad Status: 2018/2019 Season

    I think that was the overall idea yes. But Fabregas has proved a manager wrong before. Something just tells me that he will flourish and if Eden stays I think we are in for a hell of a season in terms of the football.

    Why are you asking ME Ham? 🤔 But...........fwiw, it will soon grow back, please God 🙏🏻

    transfer latest: Golovin, Rugani deals dead in the water, transfer comittee unable to reach agreements with either club. Higuan is likely but will go to the last minute of the window. Will likely to be Chelsea's only further signing after the arrival of Jorginho however if Courtois is to leave for the agreed 30 million to Madrid, the board will sanction the arrival of Joe Hart from Manchester City. Forza Saari!

    Nope, he's going to be announced alongside Alisson.
  15. Transfer Talk Topic

    It's the 21st July , the transfer window closes on August 9th . I don't think we have the time to get all the deals we want to conclude done , not at the speed the board are going .
  16. Transfer Talk Topic

    Not sure where everyone is reading this about Golovin?
  17. Transfer Talk Topic

    I agree. I have been saying for years our biggest problem has been our CM as we do not have enough goals in there or players to keep hold of the ball. For me of the current lot Kante and Cesc are the only ones that deserve a place in the squad that wants to be top four.
  18. Squad Status: 2018/2019 Season

    It would be very surprising to me if Fabregas was given a bigger role in the team than the one he has now. Certainly still a top, top class player when we play to his strengths, but with the arrival of Jorginho and the amount of pressing Hamsik did at Napoli, I don’t think Cesc will be first choice in either of the two CM roles he can play. I am expecting 20-25 starts + a few sub appearances. For me it is either Azpi or Eden as captain.
  19. Transfer Talk Topic

    Aren't many good Egyptian or Algerian too. Not being a lot of good footballers in the past, how does that affect what Golovin does or what he is capable of? England has a rich history of good footballers. Do they produce nearly enough great players today? In any case any technical players would help the team in numbers immensely at this point. We don't have time to identify or try for any other harder to get targets.
  20. Transfer Talk Topic

    Why Pjanic or Golovin. We actually need both. Wish the club would stop toying around and seal these deals.
  21. Transfer Talk Topic

    Matteo Pedrosi on Twitter , apparently we are delaying things because we're trying for Pjanic and Monaco have outbid us by €5m whilst we dither .
  22. Transfer Talk Topic

    Where is that coming from? One of his CSKA buddies went to Twitter and said good luck at Chelsea. Most outlets are saying he will be with us shortly.
  23. Transfer Talk Topic

    Not going to lose much sleep over Golovin, I don't really get the hype with him. I don't remember there being a lot of good Russian footballers since Kanchelskis and maybe Mostovoi.
  24. Transfer Talk Topic

    Looks like Golovin to Monaco is imminent , also Athletico Madrid rumoured to want Giroud on loan.
  25. Transfer Talk Topic

    Agreed it is damp praise, but if he is able to offer something at that level (the level we are competing at this season) then, in my opinion, he's most definitely needed giving an option when better players need a rest. I hope we end up being in a position to win it. Using the group stages and early knockout rounds giving lesser players game time and better players rest, then hopefully we reach the latter stages to take it seriously. I would like to be sitting here in 12 months with a European trophy under our belts with a Super Cup to contend for as well.
  26. Squad Status: 2018/2019 Season

    I was thinking he would be cover for Jorginho yet you might be right.
  27. I thought he has a good skillset.. especially the pass from deep to set up a goal last season. I have always felt a player like him will perform better with better players around. I hope he kicks on. The boy reminds me a bit of joe Cole.
