  1. I would have Baker as well, but going by Conte's recent comments I fear they're going to loan him out. If we have Ox, I feel he can cover as 4/5th AM and also allows Moses to cover that position as well, however I do understand your concern, we'd only have three very top level AMs when usually we'll get through 4 in one match. I personally feel it would be good if we could get a couple of CM/AM players who can cover both roles, similar to how we used Fabregas last season.
  2. Courtois Caballero Eduardo Azpilicueta (could also play RWB) Rudiga Luiz Christensen Cahill Moses (could also play AM) Alonso Sandro Oxlade-Chamberlain (could also play CM or AM) Fabregas (could also play AM) Kante Bakayoko Pasalic Hazard Pedro Willian Musonda Morata Batshuayi Llorente If the transfer rumours are true, that's our potential squad for the season, what are people's thoughts on that? Personally I'd be pretty happy, but I do feel we need to add an additional CB and AM to that squad, but that would mean signing 5 more players... possible but could be tricky. We have the money there from players sales and TV money, but it's still a big outlay on players to get that amount of players in one window at the required level.
  3. Wilshere for me is a definite No, I just don't see any value in it with the amount of injuries he has - he is injured more often that he isn't. Ox would be an ideal signing and someone I've personally wanted us to look at for a while. As I understand it he is a Chelsea fan, he is versatile and can play in 3 positions we're currently looking to add depth too, WB, CM and AM, he is home grown, he's still relatively young and I also think in the right team and with the right coach he has a lot of room from improvement. Walcott mentioned earlier is a massive no for me as well, why would he come here to be 3rd choice striker and 4th choice AM? He's already annoyed about not being the main man at Arsenal. I think if we get Ox in, we're not far off where we'd want the squad to be, add Lllorente, a wing back (linked with Candreva, who I think is a great option if we can't get Danilo) and another CM/AM and we'd have arguably the strongest squad in the league and a very competitive squad for the Champions League... not bad for a board who according to some, have no idea what they're doing.
  4. How do you know what club bid for what player and when? Madrid were quoting a price of £70m+ for Morata apparently and we've signed him for an initial fee if £58m, which to me suggests we've probably been negotiating the make up of the deal for quite some time. My guess is that we never bid for Lukaku, we were dealing with Madrid over Morata and United may have put in an offer to test the water of below the £70m which was turned down and then decided not to try and negotiate as they were planning for Lukaku all along. I could be wrong, but that would be my guess. These kind of deals, for this kind of money take a long time to sort out, conversations have probably been going on since the end of last season.
  5. There we go people, now will people start to calm down and appreciate what the board are doing. Tiemoue Bakayoko, Willy Caballero, Alvaro Morata and Antonio Rudiger, that is a pretty decent window so far. I would also argue from that list at least 3 of the 4 were our first choice for the positions, only maybe Rudiger was not. I expect a WB will be in in the not to distant future and possibly another CB. Good times!
  6. Guys, panic over... he's signed! The press are going to absolutely hate this! All summer they've told us of the unrest at Chelsea because of lack of signings. Is it possible, that now this is done, the final deals can start to go through? Maybe... maybe not.
  7. Aguero... what a cruel rumour.
  8. Remy with his second and a second penalty for Chelsea. 8-2
  9. Azpi tucked home the 7th from the spot before he went off
  10. Cahill now on for Azpilicueta, so presume Luiz, Azpi and Cahill were all asked to make an appearance each in the second half and no injuries anywhere. That's handy
  11. Caballero, Azpi, Luiz, Cahill, Moses, Kante, Fabregas, Alonso, Willian, Batshuayi, Pedro
  12. Remy 3rd choice striker? We could definitely do a lot worse
  13. Luiz subbed off and Azpilicueta comes back on. Not sure why Luiz off, presume injury of some sort.
  14. And he's just scored! Assisted by Kenedy
  15. Our second-half team: Eduardo; Kalas, David Luiz (c), Clarke-Salter; Tomori, Scott, Pasalic, Kenedy; Baker, Remy, Boga. No Christensen, Zouma or Musonda
