  1. Transfer Talk Topic

    Yes, I hope I'm right too. I just get the sense that the board are trying to improve the team and that keeping your best assets is sound financial practice in this crazy market. Paying 71m for a 23 year old keeper will end up much better than paying over 100m+ for two midfield players who cannot grace the first team. As long as that GK fulfills his potential. And if the board will pay 71m for him in the hope that our GK position remains strong, then why would they weaken our midfield and attack by letting Kante, Hazard or Willian go? Particularly now that we cannot attempt to replace them in this window. Yep, I feel confident that we get to keep them for now. My hope is that Sarri's more creative approach will also result in 'results' and these three players will want to stay as the next two transfer windows come and go.

    Yep. When that window closes those three players will all be wearing Chelsea blue. (Or yellow if it's an away game).

    Ahh! Kepa is the Keeper. I get it! I hope he can kepa da ball out of the net. :)

    I disagree with your assessment because we have kept Hazard and Willian and Kante. My hope now is that Sarri can get the team playing a brand of football which will bring out the 'joy of playing' within Hazard and Willian again. Because for all Conte's good qualities, he was stifling our creative players and causing them to look for 'greener pastures'.

    This "Reserve back up" part of the squad is where I get concerned for the likes of CHO and Ampadu. If their game time is going to be severely limited then it is better for them to go out on loan. But if Sarri intends to use them in certain games (Europa League, League Cup) then by all means keep them with the squad.

    One of the good things about this transfer window is that Sarri (and the board) does not have to rush into loaning out a few of our squad players. He can keep those 'fringe' players around for the next two weeks before determining who he wants to keep and who can go out on loan... to a European team.

    "A very strange hill for you (to) desperately try to die on." Hi Jane. I think that saying is similar to, "pick your battles". In a world war 2 situation there would be strategic locations (hills) where a soldier's death was not pointless because he gave his life defending his country and his fellow soldiers in a manner that helped the cause. On the other hand, a soldier could make a reckless or thoughtless or poor choice which led to his death. Of course, the stakes get higher when those choices are made by Officers, or Generals, or Heads of State... or signing Chelsea's 3rd choice GK.

    This made me chuckle. Mistakes will hurt for the club (and supporters) he is on loan to.

    You hit the nail on the head!

    It could be a cloudy day?

    Taking off Hazard was pathetic. I have a lot of good things to say about Conte but that was a dumb move. Drinkwater tries but he just is not a creative enough player for our team. Another thing that changed the game was United players (particularly Matic) allowed to foul our players and not get called for it. Over time it wore us down.
  12. Arsenal 2 Chelsea 2

    Beat United and Spurs. Tied Liverpool and Arsenal. Lost to City.
  13. Chelsea 2 Brighton 0

    Which translates in to the team likewise failing.

    If Fabregas' role is to share centre midfield with anybody (even Kante) we become defensively more vunerable. This has been proven in many matches.
  15. Liverpool 1 Chelsea 1

    When we play 352 we are not ultra defensive. We won 4-0 playing West Brom that way. Playing 352 helps to negate Liverpool's attack + will give us plenty of options going forward.
