    Lots of Ake rumours doing the rounds. For £40m I'd take him back in a heartbeat. Can cover left back and centre back. Good ball player and an eye for goal. 10 goals in 92 PL games for Bournemouth.
  3. Transfer Talk Topic

    I don’t follow the Spanish league too closely these days, but I used to really like the look of Gimenez as a young CB at Atletico. Not sure what kinda form he is in these days, but 3-4 years back he looked one of the best young defenders in football. Strong, aggressive and likes the competitive side of the game, bit of pace without being quick. Probably mid 20s these days, so will have racked up a lot of experience for his age at Atletico. Depending on fitness/form these days, he might not be a bad CB option worth looking at.
  4. Chelsea vs Lille

    It’s probably unlikely at home, but maybe even a back three could be considered. Azpilicueta , Christensen, Zouma if Rudiger not risked yet. Emerson / James as Wb’s then take your pick over the other 4 with Abraham.
  5. Chelsea vs Lille

    Well prove it then. For someone who always wants others to prove things, you’re pretty rubbish at doing it yourself. You just make random claims to suit. Such as , Jorginho is having fitness/injury issues.
  6. Chelsea vs Lille

    Need him back, big time. You're right though. who to pick next to him? This game is a dangerous one. Lille have zero pressure and just can out and enjoy themselves.
  7. Chelsea vs Lille

    According to Lamps there's a good chance Rudi starts this. Goodness knows who'll partner him seeing as Zouma is awful on the left, I think I'd be tempted to play Azpillicuta there provided Emerson was fit to play LB.

    I am not sure anyone said that, but there were plenty who said he was no long term solution, which was and is true.
  10. Chelsea vs AFC Bournemouth

    As I've said before, clearly a dipper having a bit of a troll.
  11. Chelsea vs Lille

    Cabby/Cummings James Zouma Rudiger Emerson Kante Jorg Willian Mount CHO Tammy Going to be a nervy night. Early goal would help. Would have picked Tomori if he wasn’t injured.
  12. Chelsea vs Lille

    Your kidding yourself again.
  13. Chelsea vs Lille

    The good news - Rudiger in the squad. bad news - It’s likely the same CB pairing as Saturday as Tomori out with hip issue.
  14. Chelsea vs Lille

    I don’t think anyone was kidding themselves on here. People we happy about the positive style of football and how well the academy lads had integrated into the team. We’ve been good to watch with mixed results, generally more positive than negative though. We are a work in progress and everyone accepts that.
  15. Chelsea vs Lille

    Thankyou. Not bad at all considering how gloomy it looked last summer. But not good. And certainly some of the early celebrations have been premature. We've been kidding ourselves because Arsenal, Spurs and Man U have been so poor.
  16. Transfer Talk Topic

    Just like to point out that Vardy is still banging in the goals, and when his name was mentioned as someone we should go for last season, all the know alls on here were saying he was over the hill and past his best
  17. Chelsea vs Lille

    Status, check :) Our 24 first matches this year (PL,CL,Carabao)= 12wins, 5 draw, 7 losses (1 of the draws ended with penalty shootout, lost) Our 24 first matches last year (PL; EL; Carabao) = 17wins, 5 draw, 2 losses PL only, 16 matches: this year: 9 wins, 2 draws, 5 losses last year: 10wins, 4 draws, 2 losses In the race for PL top 4: check In the race for advancement Champions league: check Carabao cup: un-check Not bad for a team weakened by the loss of experienced players like Hazard, Morata, Luiz(okok), Higuain Not bad at all, by our young team. Come on, you blues.
  18. Chelsea vs Lille

    I wouldn't be so sure about an Ajax win. They lost at the weekend and they have not been as good this year. Last time they played Ajax they were still in a funny place because their manager got sacked. I have Valencia getting the win or a draw in that one.
  19. Media / Press

    First club to sack a black manager, First club to sack a lady Physio First club to systematically kick out supporters for being near alleged racists. All a bit like the Mail and the Telegraph accusing Corbyn. Its how the media works page 1 to 32.
  20. Transfer Talk Topic

    I know you can’t believe everything managers say, but Pep was on about he wouldn’t be buying any players in Jan. He also doesn’t seem too keen on CB’s in general, I wouldn’t be too concerned about City for him. I would say if we are interested, then Utd might be our biggest threat, but I just don’t see them splashing 160 million on two CB’s within a few months. Its a lot of money for a 29 year old and not really inline with how we act on transfers. He would be a great addition though.

    which no doubt is why Koulibaly is said to be unhappy.
  23. VAR and Chelsea

    Thought I was the only one to see that. The commentary team said plainly they had no idea what VAR might be looking at. There was no attempt at winning ball, just barging into Christensen - a theme for the game. There was also a barge by Pickford on Tammy Abraham as tried to prevent a defender shadowing the ball for a goal kick. Quite blatant and with the ball still in play (on his bruised hip, he stayed down for a while). Penalty if we are going to VAR stuff and stick to the rules. And for not the first game, there was quite a lot of shoving Chelsea players off onto the sidelines. I presume we now have a reputation for bottling the physical stuff.
  24. VAR and Chelsea

    What's an elbow in the guts between mates ?
  25. Media / Press

    What you dont get is lots of articles and TV comment regarding the incident like the Sterling incident. Has the guys name and address been published like with the incident at Stamford Bridge? We do get treated differently we know that as with the Eva Carneiro thing where suddenly everyone was an expert on the role of a physio and cared deeply about womens rights in the workplace...I don't see many lady physios working in football at the moment by the way...
  26. Transfer Talk Topic

    Thats the standout buy. Unfortunately City also need a defender and they'll probably pip us.
  27. VAR and Chelsea

    That second Everton goal on Saturday had what looked suspisciously like a foul on Christienssen in the build up. For a moment I thought we might get a VAR decision...but no another one goes against us...couldnt really make too much of it after the third went in but it was important. The ref let a lot of over physical stuff go from Everton which assisted their win but we didn't really stand up for ourselves enough
