    I think the charge is pretty stupid. However you could say Costa throwing his arms around and hitting Kos in the face was violent conduct. If it is though, they should start giving it out to everyone that does it. As well as start doing it for all the grab tackling that is done in corners / freekicks nowadays.

    ^ Quality post. 10/10. Would read on RAWK again.

    My whole reasoning is that no one could be as bad as Ivanovic is right now. Seriously. Fabregas must be hitting unbelievable passes in training, splitting the entire field, nutmegging a whole other team, bouncing it off the post and right back to Diego Costas head. Last season Jose said that Ivanovic and Terry both told him they wanted to play every minute possible of every game. He said he did that, and that they deserved the title. Looks like they said they want to do it again, and Jose backed them, and it misfired badly because Ivanovic has been completely horrible with amazing consistency.

    Even if we had of played Stones at right back, out of position last night. We would have looked a much better side. The quicker Azpi moves to the right at this stage. The better. We need to bolster the defence. Though it appears the club was well aware of that.

    Droy still claiming Stones wouldn't start for Chelsea as he isn't even close to Terry or Ivanovic ?

    Honestly the club could really use someone at the moment to make a change. Not just to lift the fans and the other players, but to alter how we play. Pogba coming in, and playing 3 in the middle would be big for us. Never seen some of our players this bad before, from Ivanovic at one end of the field right through to Hazard at the opposite end.

    I like KDB Not sure he is exactly what Man City need though.

    Evidently Everton does not have TONS OF MONEY. Seen a post by some Everton fans today saying how badly the club is managed, how they already borrowed against the new TV deal before they even received the cash and so on. Worst club financially managed in the Premier League was what all their fans were saying.
  9. Transfer Talk Topic

    Some people need to put themselves in Evertons shoes. If Hazard had signed a new contract, then been chased by Real Madrid, who had offered more and more money each transfer bid. With Jose saying "Not for sale, not for sale" Then Hazard had put in a transfer request, what would peoples reactions be then ? Admittedly I think we would have dealt with the situation a lot better, but I can understand why some of Everton arn't really happy. Going into selfish Chelsea fan mode though. They should just follow the natural order of football, and as a selling club let Stones join a far superior club.

    Not really with how fast football is progressing financially. Which is outrageous in itself. It is just ahead of the curve. You have average players at "Financially responsible Arsenal" on 80k.

    Willian, Ramires, Luiz, Azpi and a few others would fly in the face of that though. Ramires has been in and out, Willian didn't start off great at Chelsea but more grew into it. Luiz was in and out and in different positions. I personally think it has more to do with Jose's thoughts on why a player would be good in a role, even more so than how good he ends up being. Jose seems to come up with an idea of how he wants the team to play, or how he wants a player to fit in a role and when they don't or can't he just throws them aside. Azpi playing left back while Ivanovic plays halfway up the pitch on the right for example. Anyone except Remy as another. IMO Jose likes to formulate an idea of the machine in his head, and then tell players to play the roles of the parts. Rather then gathering up a whole bunch of parts and building a machine that suits them. Hence his reputation for also liking "Mourinho type players" and being a buying manager.

    Quick while they are all distracted cheering for Cuadrado, someone sneak Pogba to Chelsea.
  13. Official: Cesc Fabregas Leaves For Monaco

    I think we have missed Oscar a lot. Agree Jose sees him as indispensable. Matic and Cesc, along with some others. Hazard, Azpi. Start every game and often play all 90 minutes. So of cause Jose sees them as Indispensable.
  14. Official: Cesc Fabregas Leaves For Monaco

    This explains why he doesn't play next to Mikel or Ramires unless their are no other options.
  15. Transfer Talk Topic

    Unsurprisingly he still didn't answer, and moved on.

    I don't think James is the best person to act as a test if a saga was merely a smokescreen. (love you james)
  17. Transfer Talk Topic

    Anyone think that Callum McManaman looked good. Quick feet, aggressive and caused all our players a ton of problems. Not just Ivan, everyone that came up against him. Not saying we should sign him, just surprised me a little.
  18. Transfer Talk Topic

    James has been pretty reserved about it tbh. Him posting links to articles about it and saying he hopes it comes off but has doubts is pretty good for James, deserves credit.

    We have been playing the defence set up for Terry before that. Ivan and Azpi tuck in, Azpi doesn't get forward near as much so that Terry always has cover. When we are near our own box Matic pretty much stands on top of Terry and Cahill so he can press whoever gets to the edge of the box so Terry doesn't have to move. Play much deeper than we really should, Courtois comes far out of his box, so much so he was scored against before he could get back, Charlie Adam I believe. The entire defence has been set up to protect John Terry and his lack of pace since Jose arrived. We have only dropped deeper and deeper as last season went on. And you know what. It worked originally, Terry could stand still and was great at defending his spot and leading the team. The more its gone on, the more we have had to commit to it though, and it is getting to the point that unless everyone around him does a great job, then he looks exposed. He looks slow and that is because he is. Which is totally understandable. It also doesn't mean he shouldn't play again or be instantly replaced. But we need a faster option and to start planning for when he is gone. I still think Terry could play for a while, but it's going to increasingly be more from the bench until finally he is like Mikel, Sent on when we are trying to lock down the game, as that spare defender at the back clearing balls. Other teams know how we play now, we arn't little horses now with Costa and Cesc surprising people. They have had a long time to study us and find our weakness. if you have faster centre backs, you can press higher and the midfield isn't having to close down nearly as much room. As it is, the striker drops off Terry who then doesn't move, because he hasn't the pace to keep with him, or the pace to turn around and get back in position if it is laid off. Rely's on every other player around to do it, in a bigger area than a player that was fast would.
  20. Transfer Talk Topic

    Yes that is the exact problem. We changed the way we played so much to protect Terrys lack of pace. It just isn't working at the moment and other teams know it. We need a faster option.
  21. Transfer Talk Topic

    Well Pedro looked good. No Ramires in the squad and no injury, looks ominous. Anyone thinking Stones wouldn't help our team or get chances instead of Cahill / Terry might want to have a rethink. And Zouma getting a start in defence, 4 years prior to Droys projection.
  22. Transfer Talk Topic

    Pretty sure I saw that Di Marzio said Chelsea had definitely contacted Juventus about Pogba, but were told he is not for sale.
  23. Transfer Talk Topic

    Ohhh I would be so happy. Three of those 4 are players I think would be brilliant at Chelsea. The other is expensive because he is English but has potential to be a good signing.
  24. Transfer Talk Topic

    I think Koke would be more ideal for us than Pogba.
  25. Transfer Talk Topic

    I agree, I think Oscars best position would be central midfield, with attacking midfield his second best.
