  1. Transfer Talk Topic

    I honestly have no idea what you are talking about, and stop taking this so seriously. It's an internet forum, not the houses of parliament.

    Where's the personal attack? In any case, I disagree because Kroos has a fantastic passing range, he has great composure and a very good technique. He's young and given the contract situation available for what is a good price in nowadays market.

    Your darling Ramires isn't even worth one third of that, and you generally don't seem to have very god judgment concerning football players, so rest assured that Kroos really is good :) No offence, but my advice to you would be to actually watch Kroos a few times you'll get a better idea of him - and football in general :)
  4. Transfer Talk Topic

    Hopefully this means we got someone better in the pipeline because Costa doesn't appeal to me at all.
  5. Transfer Talk Topic

    Di Maria isn't any better than Willian and with Schürrle and Salah on the bench this position is covered well enough.
  6. Transfer Talk Topic

    Weren't they banned or fined or something? I'm pretty sure they're not in the position anymore to throw around silly money, and at a lower offer, I can't see any player choosing City over other major clubs.
  7. Transfer Talk Topic

    I've taken a closer look at Pogba a few times during the World Cup and whilst he is certainly a talented midfielder, 60m seems like it's 40 too much. 20m seems to be more appropriate, especially if we take Hazard's 32m as a benchmark. Agree or disagree, but I am 100% sure our club won't pay 60m for him - even if he or his agent begged for an offer from us! As long as there's a remote chance of signing Kroos, we should focus on him.
  8. Transfer Talk Topic

    Well as I say, when it comes to hoping, then I hope you're right, but when it comes to thinking about it rationally, I highly doubt it. Then again, I'd have never expected Fabregas to sign for us either ;)
  9. Transfer Talk Topic

    Kroos one the other hand has a remote chance of happening, even though it's very unlikely. Having said this, Kroos would be a terrific signing and a supermassive upgrade on a certain number 7.
  10. Transfer Talk Topic

    Hoping and genuinely believing are two different things. I am not an avid follower of transfer rumours merry-go-round but I can recall Juventus saying they won't sell and Pogba saying he won't leave. Moreover, 60m isn't the kind of money we throw around these days, especially not for a 21 year old.
  11. Transfer Talk Topic

    People who genuinely believe we will sign Pogba are deluded. Simples as.
  12. Transfer Talk Topic

    I've still not given up hope that we won't sign Costa after all...and £35 million on Mangala? I genuinely doubt that.
  13. Transfer Talk Topic

    Did anyone see Ramires' performance after he was subbed in for Brazil yesterday? I stand by my words, I will never understand how this person has made it into CFC's & Brazil's squad. Very, very poor display by an average player. In any case, Kroos would be a huge improvement on him and with Kroos, Fabs and Matic we'd have the right balance between passing, skill, composure and defensive abilities. Plus it would allow us to drop Oscar, or at least not rely on him as our playmaker so much. I gave Oscar lots of benefit of the doubt, but I am starting to think that he might not turn into the massive player we all want him to be after all.
  14. Transfer Talk Topic

    To be honest, I'd rather take Kroos. He is said to be cheaper (assuming Pogba would cost anywhere close to the 60m that are rumoured) and his distribution of the ball has been impressive for Germany so far, while he's also been reliable going back.
  15. Transfer Talk Topic

    United massively overpaying, but since it's them the press is calling it 'rebuilding', whereas we'd by accused of 'ruining football', had we done the same. In any case, it will make their failure all the sweeter. I honestly don't believe they are getting great value for money.
  16. New Stadium Plans

    So what's the news here? They've been in talks with the council about expanding Stamford Bridge for around 6-7 years. In a comprehensive statement they argued that the main obstacle was that expanding the shed and MH would cost around 300m on the whole and increase the overall capacity to just 55000. Even if it was approved of it wouldn't be financially viable, they said, so what has changed in this respect? This news from yesterday is in fact no news at all, and certainly not a reason to get excited.

    After a good two dozen of games, I have yet to see a wholly convincing performance by Lukaku. His first touch is dreadful and generally he's got a lack of skill. His passing is below average and he is very immobile and can't turn and accelerate quickly enough, which makes it hard for him to play against many defending players - which, as a matter of fact, would be the situation at Chelsea most of the time. For his lack of talent, he scored many goals for average teams though. His shot accuracy is good and he is good at exploiting space when there is any. Still, I definitely don't want him to be our main striker, and if a good offer comes in, I'd sell him. I think José doesn't rate him either.
  18. Transfer Talk Topic

    True, Drogba's first touch was indefinitely better than Lukaku's and he was generally a physical player with good technique, which is rare.
  19. Transfer Talk Topic

    Love this bit!
  20. Transfer Talk Topic

    If United spend around 150m and manage to get 4-5 top players, I reckon they'll be back in the top four by the end of next season. The question is - will those top players go there without Champions League football? They need new midfielders, but there aren't many really good ones on the market (with Fabs joining us even less). And they also need one or two top defenders, but apparently one of their targets - mangela or something - also said he'd prefer us! United must be mad at us! Edit: Imagine Kroos also joins us instead of them!
  21. Transfer Talk Topic

    Can't agree with that amigo.. ;)
  22. Transfer Talk Topic

    Read an 'article' today by an Arsenal fan that suggested that Costa and Fabs will flop for us because they had a bad game yesterday.
  23. Official: Cesc Fabregas Departs For Monaco

    To be honest, I am VERY surprised Barcelona sold to us in the first place. Especially as it's a really good player and the money is not too much, given what oezil or luiz cost.

    https://twitter.com/CrazyGooner007 Folks, have a go at this Arsenal fan's reaction, it's hilarious
