  1. I think Spurs are going to have to come to a decision- consistently compete for the title as they have in a brand spanking new stadium with an increased wage structure, or compete for Europa League with the existing structure. Levy rarely sells, however, he'll struggle to retain most of that existing starting eleven with the existing wage structure. Kane and Alli in particular could easily be on 200k.
  2. Wenger has said words to the effect of 'I don't want to sell him but the board by overrule my position', and I suspect that should a £35/40 Million offer come in on deadline day (literally the last day they'll be able to claw money back for him without agreeing a new contract) or Ox asks for a transfer, they'll have little choice. Sanchez is slightly different as there are offers abroad and I can categorically see him going to PSG or Bayern. Either way I think both could still go. I would say, though, Ox looked poor yesterday.
  3. Wenger seems to have opened up the possibility of Oxlade Chamberlain and Alexis Sanchez leaving. Should be going all in for both IMO whilst targeting Sanches from Bayern on loan.
  4. Both Van Dijk and Barkley are Chelsea players IMO. Keen on both. Need to get moving, though.
  5. I've said it before and I'll say it again- Matuidi is going to Juve for £18 Million. He is precisely the sort of player we need. What the hell are we playing out looking to pay £40 Million for Drinkwater?
  6. Personally don't see the problem- if indeed we are looking at players like Oxlade-Chamberlain, Van Dijk, Roberto, Drinkwater and so on (obviously we won't sign all of these), these are all players with decent amount of experience but also have resale value. I reckon this whole Conte vs. Club thing is a storm in a teacup.
  7. Good shout, and I think we will go for one. Alex Sandro being obvious top choice, but probably not realistic. Otherwise Rose, Telles or Bertrand would be ace. We just desperately need movement.
  8. Sergi Roberto and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain would be stunning signings IMO.
  9. Ox would be a superb and versatile player for us. An absolute standout at Arsenal. Very keen we get him signed up and keen that we do it quickly.
  10. With that attitude... I think he'll make a mighty fine substitute forward in the U-21 Premier League.
  11. Agree Michy looked awful. Half of squad didn't look remotely match fit in first half. Need 3-5 signings, anything else will result in a 6th place finish.
  12. Well that's it, isn't it? I reckon coming into this window, there would be a strong argument that Ake, Musonda, Baker, Solanke, Christensen, Loftua-Cheek and Chaobah could all do a job for us. We've taken the gamble that we can do better than half of those, and I fear it's going to explode in our faces. Just did a prediction for the season, as things stand, I couldn't put us higher than 6th.
  13. Maybe not the Conte walking part, but the rest of that seems to be a leak from the club to try and stop sellers bleeding us dry. Trouble is, from a negotiating perspective, clubs know we're desperate and our season is riding upon making three or four decent signings or not, therefore they're going to rinse us. (That's the trouble with selling 15 players before replacing them!)
  14. Exactly this. If he was warned over his behaviour/he asked to leave, that won't be constructive dismissal, if he was told relatively out of the blue it would be.
  15. Ex-Arsenal player in attempt to destabilise London rivals via the media shocker. I strongly suspect there's some Chinese whispers going on, and Groves has chose to sensationalise what he's heard. Don't believe a word he or anyone at TalkSport says, unless a reputable source- Guardian, Telegraph, BBC, Sky Sports reports it first.
  16. Absolutely perfect. Cheers!
  17. Perfect, mate, thanks for the tip. Do people tend to sing up in there?
  18. Bit of a random one (know I'll get a quicker response here), ahead of the game tomorrow, what's the best pub for atmosphere near the Bridge nowadays? Used to do the So Bar regularly, but haven't really bothered since it's changed up to what it is now and fancy a bit of a lively pre-game drink or five. I know the Imperial has also now been gentrified.
  19. Like most on here, I'd have liked to have seen what Chalobah could do but honestly he was all potential, he wasn't Chelsea level last season- if we want to keep winning, opportunities are extremely limited and therefore transfers or loans are generally an academy players onlyncuabce. A move will do him good, and who knows, should he reach his potential, he'll be back.
  20. Yeah just saw that. I'm not too clear on it, so I stand corrected!
  21. I think he means we could cut a deal with the Ox in January. Same with Sanchez (assuming both are over the minimum age in which you do the bosman thing- which I know Sanchez is, not sure about Ox). Next Summer could be massive for us if we play our cards right (we won't!)
  22. Cancelo would be RWB, Bertrand LWB, Sanches CM and Ox could cover in all four wide positions and as a central attacking Midfielder.
  23. Cancelo, Bertrand, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Sanches- job done.
  24. He is decent.
  25. Perhaps he is the man to take the mighty Orient out of the Conference!
