  1. Tiemoue Bakayako

    Quick internet search brought up these quotes made before the game... And these ones after... This will run and run.
  2. Newcastle 1 Chelsea 2

    Strong line up, still not comfortable with Rudiger and Luiz as a pairing but we'll probably outscore them anyway.
  3. Huddersfield 0 Chelsea 3

    Good game and a decent result. Arsenal will obviously be a tougher test, but I'm looking forward to seeing how we develop over the next few weeks.
  4. 2018/19 Expectations.

    We'll climb back into the top four at the expense of Tottenham, but we'll lose Hazard at the end of this month for a massive amount of money. Premier League: 4th Europa League: Win FA Cup: QF League Cup: Early exit on penalties to someone like Bristol City.

    This has got 'Done Deal' written all over it.

    Kovacic on loan, Fekir for £60m and Martial in a swap for Willian would be very nice. Still need a goalkeeper and our back four would be a little bit dodgy, but it will be progress at least.

    100% this. And then if Courtois rejects it, it makes his line about wanting to be closer to his kids look like absolute rubbish. Without doubt the worst keeper we've been linked to this window.

    And we voted for it too...

    No point waiting until next summer and January will be too late because we might face an exodus later this month. We've got less than four days to sort out our most clear and obvious problems.
  10. Chelsea 0 Manchester City 2

    Thankfully we won't have to come up against City every week... Obviously it will take time to adapt, but we need to give ourselves the best possible chance - and that involves acting while the window is still open.
  11. Chelsea 0 Manchester City 2

    It shouldn't take us getting dicked again and again for those upstairs to realise we're short of quality. The window in England shuts at a worrying time. If we're not careful, we might be picked off and left with this line up for the rest of the season.

    Then if that's the case, we should back him. Inter were actually linked with Bakayoko (and he did very well for them the other night), so a swap might suit everyone.

    If Vecino is a genuine target and a player Sarri wants, then fair enough, but if this is another situation playing out (I.e, "no to those three names, but what about this person eighth on your list?"), and it's being pushed by the people who bought us Bakayoko and Drinkwater, then I worry a little bit...

    Ten days to go - not really paying much attention to the rumours, but I really want to see a top striker and a fantastic attacking/wide player come through those doors. It seems so obvious - we lack creativity and the ability to finish - and yet I have an awful feeling that it's a blindspot for those wielding the chequebook. No more 'central' midfielders, unless they're in the "outstanding" category. And a goalkeeper, of course...

    Are people honestly kicking off about Rob Green replacing Eduardo?! Remind us how many games Eduardo played over two seasons...
