  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'.

    "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!

    Hey! Page 4444! We will have to wait until January 2018 to hit page 5555!
  10. Squad Status: 2019/2020 Season

    Bob, you are a shrew judge of character. At least the forum persona who presents himself as Mr. Droy.
  11. Squad Status: 2019/2020 Season

    Are you talking Ivanovic from four years ago or Ivanovic now? It was clear at the beginning of last season and the season before that he was fading. I would definitely choose Christensen over Terry 2017. You are living on nostalgia Mr. Droy. Morata or Costa? Well Morata to avoid all the drama is a big plus. I liked Costa, even January to May 2017 Costa always worked hard, but it is way too early to make any decision yet. I'm paranoid about Morata because of our poor history with some of the strikers who have failed at Chelsea. But that has nothing to do with him as a player. As far as Mikel is concerned it amazes me that you rate him so highly considering he is similar to Matic when it comes to maneuverability. And you constantly berated Matic in that department. By the way, it is very ironic that you hated Matic so much and he was purchased (again) by the manager you rate so highly.

    But we then went from mid table to Champions again with not having enough players in the squad?

    I'm sure Leicester's valuation does not align with those interested in buying him.
  14. Transfer Talk Topic

    Sorry Dingus. Your post(s) sparked my thoughts regarding transfer negativity which led to me thinking of Conte negativity among a few on this forum.

    Let us see what Conte does with what he now has and then make an informed opinion based on what we do on the pitch. A bit of perspective is needed. We went from a mid table team to Premier League champions and now expectations are so high that people are going crazy negative over this transfer window. The only evidence I'm going on for our season is what Conte achieved last season and how we overcame Spurs two weeks ago with a very threadbare squad available for that game. It amazes me how many people on this forum are negative towards Conte after what he and the team achieved last season.
