  1. Transfer Talk Topic

    Give it time... when he doesn't start the opening game of the season, the press will start telling everyone that we've ruined another career.

    Such a strong team that season and in particular that front 3 - devastating.
  3. Transfer Talk Topic

    I've wondered the same, but I think it's very unlikely they saw completely in our favour and maybe more likely they reduce the ban to one window, in which case it wouldn't change this summers ban anyway. Personally, I expect the ban to stay as it is and I think the club have just decided to accept it, make no enemies and incorporate it into the long term plan. It's an opportunity to have a closer look at some players who may otherwise be dismissed easier than they can be this summer. The expectation will still be to get into Europe next season and I think our squad is definitely capable of that... although EL more likely than CL possibly.

    Great news! Confirmation he'll be in the first team squad this coming season too... exciting times for Mason Mount.

    From his post-match interview, it sounds like he will. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IH5inxY_qlg

    I had so much hope for Lewis Baker a few years ago, but for whatever reason, he just isn't quite up to the level I expected him to make it to. It's a shame.
  7. Squad Status: 2018/2019 Season

    I was the one who mentioned Kenedy. Not from an ability point of view, but a numbers point of view. With CHO missing the start of the season we'll be so short on numbers and so as someone to come off the bench in games, he at least has PL experience.
  8. Squad Status: 2018/2019 Season

    I'd say Tammy and Pulisic could play 90 mins more often than not, however they are the two biggest unknowns in terms of PL experience though. Tricky squad to manage this season.

    That is a fair point. Do you think that's what some people at the club thought we were getting with Giroud? I still think we're betting off playing a 4231 when everyone is fit this season. I'd go: Kepa Azpi - Rudiger - Luiz/Christensen - Emerson Kante - Jorginho Pulisic - RLC - CHO/Willian Giroud/Tammy Which leaves a bench of: Willy, Luiz/Christensen, Alonso, Kovacic, Pedro, Mount/Barkley, Giroud/Tammy/Bats When I see it, it isn't as bad as I often think, but the bench doesn't really inspire

    That would require having 2 decent strikers though...
  11. Frank Lampard Appointed Chelsea Head Coach

    As I said, it doesn't really bother (or both as I apparently typed) me, I just skip it all. But I genuinely blame it on having a pre-season with a transfer ban... people are desperately finding things to talk about and then end up going back and forth saying the same things over and over again. The season will kick off soon and then we'll all have real things to disagree on!
  12. Frank Lampard Appointed Chelsea Head Coach

    I'd happily help out where needed.
  13. Frank Lampard Appointed Chelsea Head Coach

    Agree. The amount of back and forth, tit for tat 'discussions' on here in recent days/weeks has got pretty boring. I personally just skip through it all, so doesn't really both me, but presumably, I'm missing some good posts from others in there. I guess this is what happens in pre-season when we have a transfer ban.
  14. Squad Status: 2018/2019 Season

    Do you honestly think the ban is still going to be overturned? Or are you just saying the same line because you're being stubborn? At this stage, I imaged the club might not even want it overturned as they'd have a very short window of time to get business done and clubs would be in a very strong bargaining position.

    Anyone else think we might keep Kenedy around until January, in order to give CHO the time needed to get back to fitness? Not that I think Kenedy is of the quality needed, but going in to the season with only 3 fit wingers seems crazy!
