  1. Loving this. Don't expect to win anything this year, but rediscovering our backbone is a priority.
  2. Makes no different to the point I was making. Being a gobsh*te doesn't have a statute of limitations.
  3. Proving again that he's a bit of a gobsh*te.
  4. Thorgan Hazard has six goals in seven appearances I see. I need to watch more Bundesliga, so I can't comment on his overall play, but does anyone know how he is defensively? Oscar barely even flatters to deceive any more. We wore him into the ground and we're left with OscarLite. Wonder whether Thorgan could come back and take his place - his form is akin to KDBs when he started to light up the league over there.
  5. Expected so much of this guy, particularly as he was to/has usurped Cech. At the moment he's not fit to shine Cech's boots. Hoping he does a De Gea and settles into the role, but the signs are not good. By all accounts he brings little to the table personality wise either. Big worry.
  6. Chelsea fans love Luiz. Every opposition's fans also love Luiz. No thank you.
  7. Rodriguez worries me. He's been devastating going forward for years but nobody bigger than Wolfsberg have come in for him. He'd be an offensive upgrade on Baba but I'm not so sure defensively.
  8. Huge signing. Delighted with this one.
  9. Have a good feeling about this one. Hadn't heard of him before he came off the bench for Belgium and scored the other day, but he looks like he has bags of potential. Hopefully I'll be quoting this after he's scored his 25th league goal for us at some point in the future and not as we sell him for a cut price.
  10. Official Club Announcement Chelsea Football Club is delighted to announce Michy Batshuayi has today completed his transfer from Marseille. The 22-year-old signed a five-year contract. A powerful, fast striker, the highly coveted Batshuayi moves to Stamford Bridge having developed a reputation as a fine finisher following spells in France and Belgium. Skilful and with the ability to beat opposing defenders with his quick feet, he is a threat in the air and also comfortable holding the ball up and linking the play. He was part of the Belgium squad at Euro 2016 and netted with his first touch on his tournament debut last Sunday, converting a cross from his new Chelsea team-mate Eden Hazard in a 4-0 win over Hungary. Batshuayi said: ‘I am delighted to sign for one of the biggest clubs in Europe and embark on the next chapter in my career. I hope I can help Chelsea win many trophies during my time at Stamford Bridge. ‘Eden Hazard and Thibaut Courtois have told me many good things about the club, and with Antonio Conte coming in it's an exciting time to become a Chelsea player. ‘This is a fantastic opportunity for myself and my family, I am looking forward to playing in the Premier League next season.’
  11. It also resets/wipes donor acknowledgement which isn't the best way to encourage people to keep giving.
  12. Payet looks to me like someone that's going to have to try really hard to be good at football, but everything seems to come so naturally to him. Didn't watch a lot of West Ham this season, so didn't really know what the fuss was about. He looks class.
  13. My eyes, my eyes!!! Don't let the truth get in the way of good conjecture ;) More seriously, I knew the Rudiger part but not the background on Manolas. Thanks for the info.
  14. Don't know if there's any truth in the Rudiger rumors, but he certainly looks a player. Has come a long way in terms of confidence on the ball since the last time I saw him play as a 20 year old. Looks intelligent and capable of holding on to the ball if needed.
