  1. Squad Status: 2015/2016 Season

    I agree that that is the aim this summer. I just don't see an upgrade on Cahill and Ivanovic in there. Let alone JT equivalent. And while injuries have made CB the one area we seemed to bestretched on this season, CB and GK were the two areas where we really did have cover at from the start of the season. CM/AM is the area where we really lacked alternatives on the bench during the season.

    Another way would be to say that if Lord Percy, Gallas or even Cahill or Ivanovic were available aged 26 or younger today, they'd cost a fortune and they'd be 8 English clubs bidding for them and 3 or 4 foreign clubs. Even Luiz - thought at the time to be worse than any of those, went for £50m a while ago. You can'tjust go out and buy 2 top class CBs nowadays, you have to be happy with a few good players and make your team marginally stronger than rivals, hope for a bit of luck andforget about buying a top team full of £50m+ players

    According to his profile paulw66 is 35 years old. I have no problems with RLC, just with those that think he has proved himself at PL level already.

    Looked good against Villa (so do most players). Looked good for 20 mins against City until they recognise we were playing everything through him and snuffed him out. But disappointed every other chances he has got. Perhaps his reputation makes it difficult for him to impress, but the fact is he has not made the most of any of his chances. I have nothing against those that say RLC will come good, just against those that claim he already has. He hasn't.

    Top 4 used to mean behind City United and Arsenal, but ahead of Liverpool. It means something completely different now. Top 4 would mean an 18 point improvement, and the hope that both United and Liverpool remain crap at the same time. This will not be an easy year.
  6. Chelsea Reserve & Youth Team

    Err - should we be thinking that RLC now deserves an opportunity at Vitesse like Baker had this season? Perhaps we could buy Matic, Mikel, Oscar, or probably the most sensible purchase in a long time Pedro again. Experienced proven internationals. The JT example is pretty good let them push aside the likes of le Bouef, Desailly, Thome, Hogh, Lambourde & Melchiot (and Bogaard and Pannucci for that matter) all at the club at the start of 2000/01 with Ferrer and Le Saux at FB.

    A good point. Made stronger when we read of the young players who have been given contracts of £20k to £65k a week taking them to 22 or 23 before they have begun to prove themselves at PL level. They make the likes of Baba and Zouma look very cheap in comparison. I think you should read some of Bob Singleton's comments on the game - that essentially our best were no better, their weaker players were much worse. Certainly JM is not very good at finding meaningless end of season games to play kids in. He succeeded in 04/05 and played a few kids then. This season he just quit early, but most seasons his teams are still in with a good shout at the end. Other managers find such opportunities easier to come by. That will be a relevant discussion to have when we first find one of the kids out of the Academy goes on to have a great career without getting a run of games at Chelsea. No idea who that might be though - Andy King perhaps?

    ?? We need to take a massive risk to give 17 & 18 year old kids a chance? why
  9. Jose Mourinho (Leaves For The Second Time)

    Quite - here they'd just ban Hazard for a few games.
  10. Taking The Pee Out Of Liverpool (For Khobar)

    This is the strange thing, isn't it. The whole press is reporting as though everyone in England is behind the apologies. They are not - they see it as a sham to shut up a pleading bunch of scouse whiners. Lets all put the blame on those South Yorkshire Police and medics (ie the very ones that picked up the dead bodies) and pretend we are nobler people today. Sanctimonious crap AND minority sanctimonious crap too. No one really believes in the new story. Indeed to his great credit, the Head of the South Yorkshire Police has refused to fall in with the crowd and taken suspension as a result.

    Especially those "full of running and energy which we lack at this moment" But we seem to be happy to sell them.
  12. Squad Status: 2015/2016 Season

    I disagree - both figuratively and especially literally.
  13. Squad Status: 2015/2016 Season

    Not nearly enough. JT is going, RLC is not a regular contributor next year. And 15 for what is in practice 13 players used per game is not enough.. And the gap between your first 15 and the others (except Cahill) is enormous. I approve of bringing Ake and Cuadrado in as squad members, but even then 4 purchases are not enough.
  14. Following Chelsea's Loans

    I guess Imeant that I don't see either starting regularlyfor a while - it is just not how managers do things.
  15. Following Chelsea's Loans

    Or alternatively, what are we going to do with RLC with Musonda and Boga in the squad?
