  1. Transfer Talk Topic

    Of all the two potentially available English attackers, why on earth would we go for Zaha? Failed at United, temperamental at Palace-level and would cost a fortune. Sancho is the direction to go in, let's be Frank (I'll get my coat!)

    So according to SSN and other sources we've accepted £88m rising to £130m with add-ons. Not too bad, assuming the add-ons are achievable within a reasonable time. Namely the full season where we aren't able to buy anyone to replace him.

    Calcio reporting that Bakayoko's likely to be returning in the summer. Fantastic - maybe Sarri can line him up alongside Kovacic and Jorginho next season in the most pointless midfield ever to be assembled.
  4. Transfer Talk Topic

    Who's seriously happy with us selling one of the top 5 keepers in the world for a pittance and spending nearly double on a kid, completely untested in both Europe and the PL who's barely even 3 years younger? Not to mention Liverpool's dealings on the far more experienced Alisson earlier in the window. We've been absolutely shafted here, and I guess we have to hope this guy will turn out to be half decent now otherwise Courtois and his agent will be laughing at us from afar come next season.

    £30m for supposedly one of the best keepers in the world? After what Liverpool just paid for Allison (who is untested in the PL)? And then who would you be able to reinvest that money in, price-wise, like for like, who's of a similar quality?
  6. Transfer Talk Topic

    If he genuinely has gone AWOL why even bother selling him. Hold him to his contract and let him rot for a year. Don't even play him in the reserves, just on his own. It's not even worth the pittance RM are going to end up paying this year (can't even replace him to any kind of similar standard with the money) and the trade-off would be to set a precedent for the rest of the squad that we don't take kindly to players trying to take the piss.

    Freeing up the spot for Martial?
  8. Transfer Talk Topic

    It is fake, saw an A+B of the Pogba picture somewhere (can't be bothered to go back and find it). And not too much in the way of anything at all coming out about that supposed transfer in the last couple of days - feels like there was one source and everyone ran with it. Strange that the fee was being quoted as €75m when the transfer is between two English clubs?

    Azpi is going to have his work cut out even more than he already has - as the only player in the regular first team who can actually cross the ball to a potential target man!
  11. Transfer Talk Topic

    Isn't anyone concerned about us buying half-baked fullbacks from Italian teams who offer nothing we don't already have (bar extra bodies) for what aren't inconsiderable fees? And especially so given Conte will likely walk by the end of the season if not sooner (and given the source they have to be Conte's choices)? Blew nearly £30m on Zappacosta who looks not only worse than Moses at attacking but worse than him at defending also, and now over £20m on Palmieri who has only just recovered from a serious knee injury which has kept him out for the entire season and by all accounts is neither an upgrade on Alonso nor even a real competitor. And we have Baba Rahman on the sidelines who has also just recovered from a serious injury who we could use in this exact role for free? And all this coming after signing two English midfield players who also had injuries when we signed them and hadn't played for a while (in one case, over a year)? What's going on?
  12. Transfer Talk Topic

    Imagine if we end up buying Carroll for the same fee as Liverpool spent on him 7 years ago, whilst United also spend that or potentially less on Sanchez. Just imagine.
  13. Transfer Talk Topic

    We shouldn't be buying English players due to them being English though. Granted he is not a like-for-like with Matic, but as the reigning Champions and in 4 competitions this season I'd have thought we'd have a bit more ambition than to sign someone who is just completely average, and at such a preposterous cost. I mean, can someone justify to me how he's £35m and Chalobah was £3m?!
  14. Transfer Talk Topic

    Christ. £35m (only £5m less than we sold Matic for) for a United-reject with 3 caps, whose one good season was being carried by Kante and whose England place has recently been taken by a player we let go for £3m. Look where Leicester are now Kante's with us and that tells you all you need to know about how good DD actually is.
  15. Transfer Talk Topic

    Oh the foresight...
  16. Transfer Talk Topic

    I would've thought Lewandowski would be the obvious target in an ideal world. Unfortunately an ideal world isn't one where he signed a 5 year contract last month.
  17. Transfer Talk Topic

    Says in there he once scored a goal from 40m out. Didn't know you were allowed to shoot from the stands in the Ligue 2.
  18. Transfer Talk Topic

    Yes....with first team playing time. Which we are clearly not willing to provide. Hence why we'll probably always have to pay the larger fees. Matic being a prime example.
  19. Chelsea 1 Manchester United 0

    OK, I admit he played well today. Maybe he can only get himself up for big games ie. his goals vs Spurs too. I concede my error though, he had an excellent game today (by current standards, not recent).
  20. Chelsea 1 Manchester United 0

    Drogba is pure garbage. Absolutely no pace and gives the ball away 90% of the time he gets it. Completely unsuited to the team we have now, not sure I've even seem him take a shot this year, let alone look like scoring.
  21. Hull City 2 Chelsea 3

    Cahill is absolute garbage. Get him off and drop him for the rest of the season. What a pea brain, yellow card within 20 minutes every game.
  22. Hull City 2 Chelsea 3

    If only it were that simple...
  23. Chelsea 2 Tottenham 0 (Capital Cup Final 2015)

    I noticed that too, he didn't crack a smile once. Not a great attitude.
  24. Chelsea 1 Burnley 1

    Hahaha. -_-
  25. Aston Villa 1 Chelsea 2

    Odds on Mikel or Cahill giving the ball cheaply to Joey Cole and him scoring a screamer in the last minute?
