    Hmm, why would someone late on in their career want an opportunity to play for Chelsea and most likely win trophies this season rather than stay at a club that looks destined to relegation? No, I'm not sure either.

    Ben Gibson had a great display yesterday in a game which we apparently sent scouts to watch him. He certainly looks every bit as good as Cahill in the few games I've seen of him. January bid incoming?

    What on earth has that got to do with it? I can't imagine how the ban won't be upheld.
  4. Transfer Talk Topic

    Massively overhyped. Done well getting a few important goals but it's hardly like he's putting in spectacular performance one after another. Can't believe some people argue he should be played instead of Ibra. I watched u21s last night and yes whilst he got a hat trick his 3 goals were made up of - 1 shot at keeper which should have been saved, 1 deflected goal and then he was allowed to take a penalty which he normally wouldn't have been. Couldn't believe the amount of press it got. Setting him up to fail unfortunately.

    Terry and Ivan both likely gone at the end of the season, not a bad thing to plan ahead.

    😂😂 Yep, this one I am going to ignore. Take note of bluecueball's response^^
  7. Antonio Conte

    Conte says hi.
  8. Antonio Conte

    We had done 60% of our transfer business before the first prem games. And we have used what is pretty much 4-2-3-1 (4-1-4-1 you could argue) in all of them. Signing 2 much needed defenders that can fit into that formation isn't about to change all that.
  9. Transfer Talk Topic

    What a lot of rubbish. I kind of wish I just ignored this post but felt it was a necessity to correct a few things Firstly, we have 8 attacking players for 4 positions. Hazard, Willian, Oscar, Moses, Pedro, RLC, Costa and Batshuayi. In the our 3 prem games thus far, Conte has substituted 2, 3 and 3 attackers. So it would seem that rarely will any single attacking player will continually play 90 mintues. So we have more than enough options for the 4 positions. Secondly, we have strengthened the defence considerable. If you were to look at player for player comparisons for example - Luiz > Miazga. Alonso > No one. Hoping to see Azpi now move to his natural right side and Alonso slot in on his natural left side. We are going to look so much more balanced and should definitely look more of a threat going forward with overlapping full backs/full backs that can become attacking midfielders. Overall we have at least 2 players now for every position and there is plenty of healthy competiton. Something we have lacked. I would fully expect this group of players, under Conte, to mount a serious title challenge. It's going to be pretty close to call but I believe we will win the league!

    Luiz is a done deal ^^^.
  11. Transfer Talk Topic

    It's not exactly difficult.
  12. Transfer Talk Topic

    40 mil euros. Peanuts these days really.
  13. Transfer Talk Topic

    Cudrado to Juventus done deal. Still awaiting official club confirmation for Alonso.
  14. Transfer Talk Topic

    Luiz is a done deal.
  15. Transfer Talk Topic

    I would be delighted if we managed to sign Brozovic and a decent CB (not Luiz please) on top of Alonso today. Kante, Batshuayi, Alonso, Brozovic and a CB represents a very successful window for us IMO. I think it's unlikely however.
  16. Transfer Talk Topic

    I'm sure he will.
  17. Transfer Talk Topic

    Kennedy away on loan for the season to Watford. Expect that confirms Alonso signing.
  18. Transfer Talk Topic

    Maybe you are not using the correct term. Admittedly he does not have the fastest acceleration (expected for most big lads) but once going he is certainly not slow. I would definitely argue he is not going to be slower at full speed than any other of the back 4 I posted ^^. And is faster than the defender he is replacing (Ivanovic) as well as retaining the physicality/height.
  19. Transfer Talk Topic

    Alonso will come in and play LB no problem. He's not 'slow as hell' either. I would say he's equal to azpi in pace which is adequate. Our defence at Swansea will be - Azpi - Cahill - Terry - Alonso Looks pretty good to me. With a fit Zouma to come in I would say we are looking pretty decent in defence this season now.
  20. Transfer Talk Topic

    http://sportwitness.co.uk/chelsea-send-representatives-russia-open-talks-defender-transfer/ Garay the latest in the huge line of CB's we have been linked with.
  21. Transfer Talk Topic

    He would earn lots more here than at Inter. What's the problem?
  22. Transfer Talk Topic

    To be fair, some of your recent posts have been nothing short of a shambles as well. Stones and glass houses and all that.
  23. Transfer Talk Topic

    I'm still confident we will see 2 more signings. There's still plenty of time left, conte will have identified a few players he wants and the club will be working on them at the minute.
  24. Transfer Talk Topic

    Bentaleb... Wow. Speechless.
  25. Transfer Talk Topic

    Andre Gomes to barca for £42m. It's a shame as I would have liked us to follow up our original offer, he would have been a great signing. Decent business from barca so far this window. Signed top quality players u25.
