  1. Transfer Talk Topic

    Makes you wonder if Real Madrid are using Kovacic as bait to sign Hazard next summer, using Kovacic in a player swap deal. And Hazard still needs to sign an extension to his two year contract. Could be in another situation just like Courtois next summer with a year left if he doesn't sign.

    No he was offered as part of the Courtois deal, to help encourage to Chelsea to sell.

    What ever happened with Chelsea wanting Vecino from Inter? All gone quiet..
  4. Transfer Talk Topic

    Well our netspend is only 39 million for swapping both goal keepers. It's about the most Chelsea pay for most players we go for on average.

    Signing Oblak and Kovacic would make this window very satisfying.

    It's that very reason we should never of sold Costa. What was Chelsea thinking.

    This must mean Higuain tallks are advancing and the club are confident they can get him in, if they're going ahead to sell Morata.

    Sarri has already said in his press conference that we lack a pinch of quality in the midfield, this was after we signed Jorginho. So I've been expecting us to sign another top class center midfielder. Chelsea's midfield wasn't that great last season, we struggled at times to control the opposition. We desperately need more quality in the midfield area. Bakayoko and Drinkwater don't cut it for a team that aspires to get back into the champions league and win it. A midfield trio of Thiago, Kante and Jorginho would certainly be more creative and dynamic.

    I think Moses will be pushed back to play as a winger again, competing with Hazard, Willian and Pedro, if they all stay of course.

    Will be interesting to see what happens to Alonso, being predominantly a wing back not sure how he'll cope playing left back in terms of defending. Sarri will probably get the full backs to attack.

    I don't think Zappacosta will be at Chelsea when the seasons starts, wasn't good enough last season. and Azpilicueta will no doubt revert back to right back. That's why we're in for another center back to partner Rudiger, I'd like to see Koulibaly at Chelsea

    I'm now starting to think this so called tiredness excuse doesn't wash. Look at City played Arsenal twice within 4 days then played us 3 days after at a high level pressing us for 90 mins, full of energy. Like Conte said they had a fantastic attitude to fight for every ball. I think that sums it up, this current squad only performs when they are motivated. No coincidence it happens after winning the league. From Mourinho to Conte, this group of players need changing.

    I think for me and I've mentioned it several times this season, is that we still miss Costa (one of the best no 9's in world football) and Matic who showed what a great midfielder he is compared to Bakayoko, In a way it's good he played well to show the Chelsea board what a bad mistake selling him was. Plus not wanting to compete and go head to head with the likes of CIty and Man Utd for world class players because the board care too much about FFP and making a profit which inadvertently is causing our first team to become weaker. Morata will never adapt to the Premier league, that's obvious, not worth keeping past this season he doesn't have the body strength and conviction to compete in this league. If Conte had his way, Bonucci and either Vidal / Nainggolan would probably be here instead of playing a 21 year old inexperienced defender in Christensen and Drinkwater whose only good enough to play for the likes of Leicester but not a top 4 team like Chelsea. We are where we are slipping into 5th place because of the board of directors at Chelsea, they are to blame for the clubs demise. Their incompetence has stopped us from moving forward and competing. Remember what Peter Kenyon said that he wanted Chelsea to win at least 2 champions leagues trophy's in a 10 year plan. Well what happened to that? Wheres that ambition? I'll tell you what, it's gone.

    The reality is the Chelsea board care more about breaking even and getting in profit than spend big like they used too. Bruce Buck always said if there was a player that would improve our team then they would spend big if it's justified. Chelsea are more cautious now. Trouble is it's hindering our team and made us weaker. Chelsea should be all out to sign Sanchez

    Has anyone noticed since Roman employed Maria Granovskaia to replace Ron Gourlay, we've been terrible in negotiating tranfers, and much slower getting them done. She much be held accountable.
