  5. Everton 3 Chelsea 1

    Well,as I said before Jorghino is a poor mans Fabregas - what does he do exactly that he excels at?,he is not a premiership player he suits serie a, he is too slow.Our results since he hasn't played are pure coincidence. Our results recently are to do with an abysmal defence.Replace zouma,kepa and azpi and we will look a completely different team imo.
  6. Everton 3 Chelsea 1

    Building from the back hasn't been that bad this season IMO. Tomori suffered a dip in form a bit but that's expected from the youngster. Overall, I think Jorginho has to come back as he is an easy out ball for the centre backs and we haven't looked any better without him. In fact, we have (expectedly IMO) looked worse. Azpili at LB also isn't working out. If Reece James stays at RB, then Emerson has to return and Azpili has to go to the bench.
  7. Chelsea vs Lille

    Play like we did against Ajax away it should be comfortable - play like we did against everton...who knows.
  8. Everton 3 Chelsea 1

    I remember Kovacic getting a hard time last season,I posted there was something about him I liked and wasn't playing to his potential - Frank has got the best out of him no doubt.Midfield is not the major problem it once was,I like the combination of Kova,Mount and Kante,of course we need more options in that area. The biggest problem we have is in defence.We have a ropey keeper, an over the hill right back and a centre back that looks more suited to a bouncer in a nightclub.I like the thought of Emerson,Tomori,Rudi and James in defence,and a different keeper.

    Foot in mouth more likely. Does he not have the common sense to keep it shut? what evidence do you have he said anything ill advised?

    Baka only has 10 appearances due to a fitness. When fit he is a automatic starter when fit and also stays on. By all accounts Milan would have brought him but couldn't due to FFP which is why they lost their Ropey League spot. As for Barkley I still see a midtable club taking him at £20-£25m'ish as that is not mega money anymore. I appriciate that wages are an issue and multiple other things but I do not think it is crazy to speculate that they could together get something between £45-55m in fees. That said, I realise the upper end of that figure may be ambitious. As for the others, I agree they are sunk costs, especially Drinky, Zappa (with his knee injury), Pedro, Moses and Willian. Giroud may get a miniscule fee I.e. £2-5m just because people need a CF and his still has the tag as the World Champions CF1.

    Saying anything in that situation is ill-advised.

    You did quote the "prediction" before. I answered the point then. Find the line and we can discuss what "I would be surprised" about. You'll find it on the later pages of the Man City thread. Great photo though - nice one.

    I think Barkley is a known beast now. Baka is 25 and has 10 starts at a mid-table La Liga team. When we bought him he was 22, on a much lower wage, playing more frequently for the Monaco team that won La Liga 8 points over PSG. And they had already sold 3 star players at stellar prices. He was doing better at Milan and still no one seems to have made us an offer. We won't get much for either I'm afraid. But good idea to try. Barkley, Baka, Moses, Zappacosta, Rahman, Drinkwater, Kenedy, never mind Giroud, Pedro, Caballero and perhaps Willian to be pensioned off for no fee. All recent first team squad members. I'm pretty sure that we would have taken bids last summer for almost all of this list (as we did with Luiz to my actual surprise). And we won't get better bids next summer.

    Man City and Valencia, Kova preferred over Mount. Played vs West Ham with Kante on the bench. Aston Villa and Everton played both games 90 minutes with a fit Jorginho on the bench. Not substituted in ANY of these games. 4 starts, 2 goals since your prediction.

    Where is this video evidence.. Surely if there is distinct monkey gestures (which involves curing the arms up to the armpit area) that would be all over social media.If the sky and newpaper is all they have I would challenge the 'clear and distinct' video evidence. from that it looked more like an aggressive gesture like a boxer curling his arms..?
  22. Everton 3 Chelsea 1

    You must have some inside information because I’m not aware of these injuries or fitness issues Jorginho has had. I remember him being suspended recently, but can’t recall any injury. Still as a man who wants evidence and quotes from others to prove their point, I’m sure you’ll be providing this evidence.

    Jesus what an absolute knob head. Still as G Neville said , when you get politicians using rhetoric they have in the last 2 years, why are we surprised that racism is being so frequently discussed in England.

    He said he was caught putting his hands in his pockets !
  25. Transfer Talk Topic

    I think that may actually be possible and not as crazy as it sounds. Barkley has the English tax factor and Baka is doing ok at Monaco.
  26. Transfer Talk Topic

    Oooh yes please.
  27. Everton 3 Chelsea 1

    Plain untrue - and I really have no idea why you would think that. Only in about 4 games all season - all the others Kante or Jorginho has been unfit or injured. And in one of those 4 Mount was played LW. Which midfielder would Lampard prefer Kovacic over? Kante, Jorginho or Mount?
  28. Transfer Talk Topic

    I agree that it is going to take some time but I think we can dine out at the top end if we can persuade enough of the players. For instance, we know we have around £150m ready to go, then you could try something like; CF - Haaland - £18m AM - Werner - £27m LB - Telles - £35m (only has 18 months) GK2 - Foster if Watford get relegated would be £5-8m. I am not going to comment on CB's and DM's as that market is tough to find people. The only CB I really want is Romagnoli but he is AC's captain so he would be tough to get. At DM Nditi will be nigh on impossible, Berge (who we have been linked with) is untested at a high level and Partey at Atelti has a £40m buyout but has questions over his level. Personally, I would not go out for a DM and instead go for a SMS from Lazio as he can both defend and attack and he is very physical. However, I am not so sure he will ever be great. However, if we could swing some sort of deal where he could be had for £50-55m'ish and we can offload Barkley and Baka for somewhere in the same ball park, I think that would be a good deal. Obviously, not everyone is going to agree and some of those players may not even entertain the idea of coming here. That said, I think we have the spending power to pull those types of transfers off if we wanted too.
