    Ben White, John Stones, Declan Rice, Kai Havertz, Dean Henderson, plus, the two we've already signed - would that be a great window?
  2. Official: Chelsea Sign Timo Werner

    Well, I don't think that he's the one doing the convincing. But that aside, I'm sure that the club (Marina) is offering less than 80 mill. My point is simply that buying him (if indeed we do) doesn't change the dynamic of the other players we've been linked to. Roman is either in the game for those players, or he isn't. We'll see.
  3. Official: Chelsea Sign Timo Werner

    Why does it have to be 'instead of'? Maybe we'll see all of those, or most of them. From what I've read, Roman appears to be in the mood, so why not?
  4. Official: Chelsea Sign Kepa Arrizabalaga

    I don't. Very little, if any in fact - he's been regularly slaughtered on here virtually from day one. Maybe he deserves that, but I'm not sure that any player does tbh.
  5. Official: Chelsea Sign Kepa Arrizabalaga

    Particularly if he's in the habit of reading these forums! It's been brutal on here. Is he as bad as he's made out to be? Probably not, but each to his own as they say.

    Sure. I'm not a huge fan, but the defenders in front of him aren't exactly covering themselves in glory, either.
  7. Coronavirus COVID-19

    Pretty much everything has opened up, or is about to. The governments (both state and federal) acted swiftly and decisively, and movements into the country, and between states were slowed to a trickle, if not ended completely. I think that the total number if deaths was restricted to around 100, and most of those came off cruise ships, I believe. Now of course, that doesn't mean that businesses didn't suffer, or that retail stores didn't close. They did - many permanently (I guess we'll see later how many the numbers actually are). There is significant unemployment of course, and I guess we'll see over the coming months how that is absorbed. The government has provided much needed financial support to businesses, families and individuals to get them through. Of course, that financial support means that government debt has gone through the roof. Where that leads us to down the line, is anybody's guess. None of which says that there won't/can't be a second wave, of course.
  8. Coronavirus COVID-19

    Just a couple of days now until the rugby league (NRL) season restarts here. The AFL (Aussie Rules) will restart a couple of weeks after that. Both codes (particularly NRL) have a lot more physical contact that football, so it'll be interesting to see what happens.
  9. Coronavirus COVID-19

    The players trained in groups of 5, I'm pretty sure. And from training I believe that they went their separate ways home. Can't see that there's a likelihood of widespread infection among the total playing group, tbh.
  10. Official: Callum Hudson-Odoi Signs New 5-Year Contract

    I doubt that she'd be trying to. She might have better luck though convincing them that she'd changed her mind. Which is where I came in. It may be. But since neither of us were there..........
  11. Official: Callum Hudson-Odoi Signs New 5-Year Contract

    It doesn't really matter whether she's an 'escort', or not. A woman is entitled to change her mind and say 'no'. And if that's her decision (for whatever reason), then the male (any male) has to accept that decision. Obviously, I don't know that this is what happened, but if it is, then that's how the rape allegations will 'fly'.

    I don't think that it is tbh. The various leagues (including the PL) will ge back into the swing of things, sooner, rather than later imo. They have to because there's too much money at stake if they don't. And the leagues and clubs live off that money. The Bundesliga has already announced that it's close to getting back to playing, and I'm pretty sure that La Liga and Serie A won't be far behind.
  13. Coronavirus COVID-19

    Sounds like a great idea.

    All that needs to be said really.
