  1. Europa League

    That is an absolute plum draw, literally could not have hand picked it better. Weakest team left in the quarters drawn, with the second leg at home, then the semi draw against the next two weakest teams (Villarreal are probably weaker than Benfica to be fair), with the home game second. For me, this draw should really mean we make the final.
  2. Chelsea 3 Dynamo Kiev 0

    Should have been 4 or 5 but that will have to do. Hopefully, in the way game a couple more of the big boys will be rested. This competition for me is our best way of getting top four as we do not score enough and still giving away too many chances. Hopefully, the draw will be kind as I do not want Seville or one of the Italian sides.
  3. Captain Rudiger

    Has a good shout but personally I would go with Luiz and have Dave as a deputy if I were in charge. That said, when Luiz goes he is probably the best placed unless we buy someone that is better attuned as captain.
  4. Chelsea 2 Tottenham Hotspur 0

    Needed that. Not taking too much from the performance as Spuds were awful but three points are three points.

    This is not too much of an issue. We will get the Summer than take a hit on a winter window as we will likely get it reduced. Nothing to see here really.
  6. Europa League

    So Kiev in the next round. Not the best in terms of travel but could have been worse. That said, the quarters are shaping up to be very strong as all the bigger teams avoided one another.

    That is a massive gamble. For me, James, Abraham and Sterling all need to prove themselves at higher levels before they can be considered. Aina for me has found his level which is good but not the level we should be happy with (although I admit it is better to have him rather than spunk £15m+ on an established back up who gets no minutes.) RLC has not shown that he is capable of being a consistent first team player that can 1) stay fit for long enough, 2) impact games and 3) score goals. I have not given up on him but having him as our de facto No.8 is beyound a gamble and he needs to prove himself. As for CHO and Ethan, those two I agree with have the talent for high level careers but I would already count them as AM 3/4 and CB 4. The only question is if we can keep CHO as everything indicates that he will not sign. Also, you forgot Mount who has a lot of potential. However, I feel he is better off getting minutes on a PL loan than trying to get in ahead of Jorginho/Kante for the next season or two.

    When it comes to summer, I think the following is needing looking at: CF - Even if Higs does really well, he is not someone we should be basing our medium to long term future on. For me, we should look at Werner as he only has one year left. No.8 - we deseperatly need goals from midfield. For me this is close to being above the CF role. RB - Not convinced of Zappa and Dave is not good enough going forward. If Sarri does have a bit of influence I can see Hysaj coming in. For me Alonso and Emerson are good enough at LB. AM - I really think we should be cashing in on Willian as his lack of end product is an issue. I know some people on here love him but his lack of cutting edge is for me a large reason why we do not score enough goals. CM - Need to get another squad player in that can spray passes about and act as cover for both Kante and Jorginho.

    Yeah, do not get me wrong, I reckon the article is bull. I was just relaying what it said and that if it was true (with the emphasis on if) then it was a crap deal. Tap in merchant that knows how to move in the box.

    That is hard to read even when translated but the gist is: Chelsea pay €9m for Higuain's loan for six months then the €36m at the end of the season. We will match his current wages but only give him a contract until 2020 with and option for the next two years after if he scores 20+ a season in the league. Morata, is going to AM for €35m in total (€10m loan, €25m in Summer) and is reducing his wage from €7m from €9m, although we cover the €2m. Piatek goes to Milan on €2.5m wages a season and for an undisclosed sum as Genoa will sell (apparently) I do not know if I read that wrong (especially as it seemed to come across like an Italian translation of Prescott in his prime) but if it is correct, then someone needs sacking immediately.

    Guttuso has pretty much admitted that Higuain wants to leave and as this comes off Morata's disappearance I think we can assume that he is going to come. I am ok with this deal as Higuain is about the only 'proven' striker that is able to come in Jan, however I really hope it is not for £36m+ and full time. In addition, the Zenit boy also looks on his way. However, I know nothing about him so heres hoping he will be decent.

    Max Woosnam for me is the greatest British 'sportsman', as he: Won Gold and Silver at the 1920 Olympics for Doubles Tennis Captained City (and had a game for us!) Played for the England national side Got to the QF at Wimbledon, Final in Doubles Achieved a 147 in Snooker Made a century at Lords Obviously there are others who have been phenomenal in their own disciplines, but as a 'sportsman' I think it has to be him.
  13. Chelsea 2 Newcastle United 1

    Indeed. Hopefully with can get a CF in this week. For me Higuain until Summer or on an 18 month loan and Werner (more realistic than Icardi) for the Summer and I would be happy.
  14. Chelsea 2 Newcastle United 1

    This. If he had people doing what they are meant to be doing in front of him people would be lauding him. Problem is we are so static that he does not have any options when he looks up or he has to lay off to someone who is not in a great position to recieve.
  15. Chelsea 2 Newcastle United 1

    I really do not want to see Willian in the 2nd half, absolutely woeful and disinterested. That is now 1 assist and no goals in 10.5 games, absolute joke for an AM.
