    Alisson Azpilicueta - Rugani - Christensen - Alonso Kante - Jorginho - Golovin Bailey - Higuain - Hazard

    Hazard would go for £100m tops. Only 2 years left on contract

    Exactly. I’m become a bit more philosophical in recent years and, really, I will always enjoy following us no matter how good the side is. It’s a joy to watch the likes of Hazard, but ultimately no player is bigger than the club and if he wants to go then we should let him. I only want players who want to play for us. I mean, If we go and sign Dybala and Insigne and play them off Higuain is anyone going to be complaining?

    Losing Hazard would be like losing Zola or Robben. Hard to imagine life without them but then you always find someone just as good, or ‘different’ good. at the moment, if Hazard isn’t firing we look quite an ordinary team. Perhaps it will free us up to be a bit more versatile?

    Any Smashing Pumpkins fans in here? Absolutely loved Zeitgeist although it was critically panned (10 years old now!) but just got Spotify and discovered it's not on there :(

    Surely it'd be alright for Qarabag at the bridge?

    Plot thickens... Costa included in our squad?

    There are 4 positions (italicized) that anyone could reasonably expect us to have better quality in there: Clarke Salter - We have plenty of centrebacks so that's fine. Kenedy - is awful so yes need an upgrade there but we have cover with Moses or Zappacosta. Musonda - could have a break out season, clearly very talented. Batshuayi - won't lead the line and we should have improved on him but he does score goals. Recall Tammy in Jan? Other than that, it's not terrible. Courtois Caballero Azpilicueta - Luiz - Cahill Rudiger - Christensen - Clarke Salter Moses - Kante - Bakayoko - Alonso Zappacosta - Drinkwater - Fabregas - Kenedy Pedro - Hazard Willian - Musonda Morata Batshuayi

    It frustrates me when I try to convince other fans we have a small squad - they refuse to believe it. They just say: "well you've got 900 players on loan, recall them." But what they don't realise is that our academy is a sister company under the same umbrella and has nothing to do with the first team. On the whole I agree that, barring any injuries, our squad should do a decent job on all fronts this year. But we probably won't win anything if we try to win it all.

    Thanks for those stats - For me Zappacosta looks to be a Conte signing, perhaps all is better behind the scenes than we thought?

    If we actually want Llorente, we'll sign him. He would surely want to reunite with Conte more than play for Poch.

    Honestly chaps/chappettes, let's revel in the disaster tomorrow IF we don't sign anyone. But for now I want spurious rumours and mindless speculation. E.g.: My sister's ex-husband's dog groomer who lives in Cobham says she's just had a last-minute booking from a mysterious bloke called A. Sanchez who wants to pay in cash.

    I think it's strange, though understandable in a way, that we blame our entire transfer failing on one person when in reality we don't know who does what. We will sign some players today and if not then we'll have to deal with the consequences.
