  1. Non Chelsea: Champions League

    Always wondered how Simeone gets his team to be that passionate and disciplined without ever losing the dressing room. Many wont like his style but how he has transformed Atletico is amazing. Hope he comes here one day. Love how Atletico played Barca at their own game with the rolling around on the ground etc and all play acting. Now Barca know how it feels. That is the only way to beat Barca on a two legged tie. It is not pretty but it is effective and gets results.

    If he is having fitness problems in a league that is probably the least physical demanding league then what will happen when he starts in a league that is very physically demanding? Who exactly is buying Pato? Are they thinking of Pato of 8 years ago in AC Milan. Cause that player is long gone. Even if he stays fit his quality has dropped. Not sure what his addition will bring but that just sums up another bizzarre recruitment.

    I wouldnt say it hasnt worked out. He was our best player last season and carried us to the league. But he clearly does not have the commitment or desire to do that often. He has talent but he wont maximise his true potential until he fixes that constant hunger and desire. Going to Madrid would just give him less to do and give him an easier ride. If he wanted a challenge he would stay in this league. The second we have a bad season his head turns almost as if he has been waiting for this as a get away card.

    Do believe Hazard is going. He has clearly stopped playing for us for a pretty long time. I dont think he has the stomach for the PL year in year out. Never really thought he would stay in the PL for up to 6 years. He just wants a easier time in Madrid and a easier league too. Would be glad to see him go. He has talked about wanting to stay here and become a legend like Lampard blah blah. All trash, he doesn't have the loyalty or heart to become a legend here. Lost respect for him to be honest. He can take Oscar with him too.
  5. Official: Eden Hazard Joins Real Madrid

    I dont think Ivan playing poorly has had anything to do with Pedro. Ivan has been beaten by wingers not fullbacks. Pedro job is to cover fullbacks but he can't be expected to help Ivan one-on-one often thats Ivan job Pedro just has to watch the run of the fullback. I am not too sure I can say Hazard is better than Pedro at closing down and tracking fullbacks. Pedro work ethic without the ball is very good.
  6. Official: Eden Hazard Joins Real Madrid

    I get what Jose is trying to do with the Hazard situation. Jose gave Hazard lots of freedom before but I think Jose is being sensible and going back to basics. Everyone just has to pull their weight and do equal share. After all it is a team game, we have conceded way too many goals this season. I would prefer if we became boring and got 3 points again rather than some players defending and some attacking. Cesc was more disciplined defensively today than normal. I think Jose is going back to what he knows best and thats making a solid team thats hard to beat. We may not look good on the eye but as long as we are hard to beat I dont mind. Southampton beat us with ease and that kind of stuff can't go on. The main thing we need to do as a team is getting better defensively and being more solid. Today Villa barely created much and there werent too many gaps on the pitch. It was a solid performance defensively.
  7. Non Chelsea: Premier League

    Still not convinced by United, Liverpool and Arsenal. I think City will walk this title like we did last season. We really should be able to get into that top 4 without too much fuss. We just need to look at last season vidoes and what made us so successful. I really hope Jose changes his tactics and gives us something similar to what we did last season.

    Considering we are getting a loan fee for most of those loans that could be up to £25-30 Million earned maybe.

    That Behrino saga is rather funny.

    What happened to signing the "Chinese Sergio Ramos" ....
  12. Transfer Talk Topic

    It seems a bit like a joke that were going for the guy. Only 2 caps for his country at the age of 27, that already says something, but then his value is £2.5M? Man this does not look good at all. Quite worried if were buying people like this, it clearly says "panic buy".

    ^ ^ I think United need him more than we do. He would be silly to got to a sinking ship in United. Jose can make him into one of the best.

    Fabregas will play alongside Pogba With Pogba having more defensive duties I take it. Willian and Oscar will be benched I presume but injuries will give them game time. Cesc will never be benched due to his creativity, even when were down to 10 Jose still does not bring him off. Unless Oscar or Willian can start creating like him he will always be in the first 11.

    there's no doubt were in for him but how many sources have really said he wants to join or Juve are looking to sell. It is probably Juve have put a price we can not match and we are going to be trying to negotiate to bring it lower but it wont happen. I can't see us paying £70M and I dont think Juve will lower that price.
