    If I'm honest - hope this loss to Arsenal is a wake-up to the board that the squad is simply just not good enough and hasn't been for quite a while. The board doesn't listen to logic, only results so this loss may be a blessing in disguise. I'd love Dzeko here, always been a massive fan of his think he's a phenomenal back-up but that still leaves us with a problem, Morata just isn't cut out to be our number one, not this season at least. Maybe if he improves mightily in the off-season a la Suarez. Hijack the deal for Aubmeyang (I'll get the spelling right if we sign him - promise). A talent like that does not come around often enough to dilly dally. Especially not to let him go to Arsenal, that would be such an embarrassment. He's a top player and knows exactly where the back of the net is, something Morata has no clue about. Seriously I say go all in, our striking situation can't get much worse.

    Absolutely not. I may be the only one, but I am freaking fed up of us strengthening our rivals. And 25m for Willian? They're having a laugh. Worth at least 35 in this inflated market. And on top of all this, we shouldn't even want to sell. He's a great player and will obviously come good again. His only problem is that Moses and Pedro are playing phenomenally. Unfortunate timing with his mother passing, but he's a great back-up to those guys. Before that he was the first name on the team sheet. People have short memories.

    Slimani was phenomenal in the World cup and it was actually quite obvious that he should be someone that was seriously looked at. I think it was general consensus that it was surprising no-one made a move for him. I'm surprised that it took this long.

    Haven't been on here in forever. What's the general feeling about this transfer window? Everyone think that it's as much shite as I do?

    Yet we have no players who can do it against the worst or the best!

    How do you put people on ignore!?

    Sterling is so poor. Wow.
  8. Transfer Talk Topic

    Come on, that's not fair. The man has to work somewhere, and it's a prestigious job. He wants to stay in England so it's a perfect fit.
  9. Transfer Talk Topic

    Two players on my wishlist for a while now: Griezzman and Verratti. We have seen this season how much we needed a striker and a midfielder who can actually play as a midfielder (eyes at you Fabregas). More realistically though, we should try to pick up Mane or even Song at West Ham. Or maybe just play RLC or Kenedy, they honestly cannot be worse at this point. At least they will show tenacity and desire. Striker-wise we are being linked more and more with Griezmann. If we can somehow scam Atletico into taking back Costa and giving them a bit of $, then I am 100% for this move. Also, I know people hate to admit this, and we did get a very good fee for him, but Lukaku would be fantastic for us right now.

    He's started 6 of the last 7 in the league? He's getting very good game time. I am worried about Bamford as well though. Palace strikers have been pants this season and he still can't get a look in...Should definitely bring him back in January. Would rather him sit on our bench than someone else's.

    Dare I throw Pedro into that list?
  12. Official: Eden Hazard Joins Real Madrid

    Hazard would not start at Barcelona. The gulf in class between Iniesta, Messi, Neymar, Suarez and..................Hazard is massive.
  13. Transfer Talk Topic

    Very unlikely, but the best move that I can think of would be us giving Costa + cash for Griezmann

    In my local city too! Will be interesting to see how this plays out.
  15. Official: Eden Hazard Joins Real Madrid

    The way he's playing, I'd be surprised if there was any truth to RM wanting him.
  16. Non Chelsea: Champions League

    Don't think it's fair to lump it as 'British football'. It's two completely different leagues, the Scottish league is terrible. If they were to merge it with the PL, I'd be surprised to see Celtic make survive relegation, let alone make it into the top ten.

  18. Transfer Talk Topic

    I would have thought that after winning the league but failing in the CL, we would have tried to strengthen so that we can compete more readily in the CL. If anything, I feel like our squad now is weaker than last season. Experience has dropped, but energetic young buys with much to prove have not been brought in to replace them. Can't see us going far in the CL at all. Might end up causing England to lose our 4th spot because we're the only ones even trying to keep the coefficient up.
  19. Transfer Talk Topic

    At the same time though, City paid well over the odds for Mangala, as they typically do. As do PSG, remember they parted with 50m for Luiz... So I'd rather not be grouped with these 2 over-spending morons.
  20. Transfer Talk Topic

    Agreed. I'm still slightly obsessed with moving Willian in the center, and having a pacey winger on the right side. With Willian's work-rate, he'd be fantastic through the middle as he's already proved. And he has the dribbling ability to move through tight spaces. But I think Mourinho is willing to give Oscar a proper chance since he was able to have his first full summer break. I think this is almost a make or break season for Oscar, if he has another spotty season, I can see him leaving next summer.
  21. Transfer Talk Topic

    Di Maria to PSG. Lucas or Lavezzi anyone? I'd be incredibly tempted by both. Lavezzi a little old though. Lucas ran us ragged the other night. Even Verratti and Thiago Motta interest me from PSG. I know a lot of people on here really don't like Verratti but I think he's a really good player.
  22. Transfer Talk Topic

    I see where you're coming from. My main concern is that with we would be trying to blood two youngsters in the same position at the same time, and it would result in stifling the growth of one, or creating unrest in one and we end up losing out on one of them. Completely agree. We should be all over this Moutinho signing honestly. Decent player, cheap and exactly the cover we need.
  23. Transfer Talk Topic

    How many times do have to see Cuadrado kick (or mis-kick) a ball before it becomes apparent that he could be a decent league cup performer, but nothing more. Moses as well, works hard and have nothing against him, but certainly doesn't inspire or strengthen the squad. And realistically you expect Jose to give more than 5 starts (if very lucky) to a 19 year old in his first season in the prem? Now that's interesting. And yes, we did. But our rivals are all much stronger this season. And their spending isn't over. I see the logic in this, but we could have Zouma as the main protege, and spend that 30m on an established defender in a season or two. I just feel like 30m is quite a lot for such a young player.
  24. Transfer Talk Topic

    Jose's comments suggest that Moses and Traore will stay with us for the upcoming season, which effectively rules out another signing in the AM position. Absolutely gutted if true. You can clearly see where our deficiencies were last season, and we lacked one better player to push for the AM starting spot. Hazard-Oscar-Willian will start effectively every game for the entire season. Cuadrado, Moses and Traore are nowhere near able or ready to push those three for game-time let alone a starting berth. Really can't see us winning the league with a squad like that, unless Jose's plan is to bring in another big midfield player, and switch to a 4-3-3 system. Also, back to the Stones rumours. Really can't understand why we'd go out and spend 30m on a CB, when we have Zouma who is very young, athletic and looked better than Cahill almost every time he played last season. Really like the look of the kid, and would be absolutely gutted to see his growth stagnated. That 30m can be better spent in several areas. We still need a LB, CM and AM (not going to happen). This transfer window is truly looking like a huge disappointment.
  25. Transfer Talk Topic

    Sounds a lot like Zouma.
