    Glad she likes the shirt...wait till she sees the price...šŸ¤”šŸ˜µšŸ˜µšŸ˜µ

    Torres, Shevchenko, Falcao....names to whet the appetite with a goal record to match. Not being facetious but I do believe a Higuain signing would mimic their respective tenures more than a Costa or Drogba. But then again it's all about opinions. FWIW I'd still take my chances with Belotti should Sarri (if he ever gets here) dip into the Italian market.

    Higuain isn't the answer to our Morata woes... Neither cut the mustard. Giroud more effective than either.

    Pretty sure, operating under this structure, we would have found a way to f*** this scenario up as well. By the same token, had Conte been operating with the same freedom that Pep has enjoyed at City, we might be realistically defending our title. The structure must change. Till then, it doesn't matter who we bring in to manage, we're building castles on quicksand

    RIP Butch. Absolutely brokenhearted.

    Exactly. Any team in world football would be weakened with losing a player like Diego Costa and to a lesser extent, Matic. Bakayako and Drinkwater aren't of the same Calibre and expecting a superhuman first season from Morata placed tremendous weight upon young and adjusting shoulders. I am however extremely heartened by the Giroud signing, and together with Morata I see us growing in menace and guile upfront again. A force to be reckoned with? It's a good start. We simply must keep Eden though - at his best he's genuine world class and I look forward to his role in developing our front two with relish.
  7. Olivier Giroud

    A desperately needed physical presence upfront. Let's hope he produces the goods and welcome him with open arms.
  8. Transfer Talk Topic

    Delighted with the purchase of Giroud.

    ...or would Troy McClure be a more suitable fit šŸ˜œ
  10. Transfer Talk Topic

    Troy Deeney anyone?
  11. Transfer Talk Topic

    If he scores/contributes to a couple of vital goals, no-one will care about his age. As I said, not the answer but a short term contract has merit. We need to get over this Crouchiphobia. Because at the moment are playing like robots. May as well have the originator in the mix. But again it's disgraceful and embarrassing once again we're left scrambling for players while our rivals further strengthen.

    Crouch as an option, not as a solution. Think he'd flourish with Azpi's assists but Dzeko and/or Giroud make more sense as backup/competition for a shaky Morata, post Batshuayi. Still Crouch as third choice has merit. But in itself does it answer our striker problem? No

    ...on today's episode of 'What does.. ...he 'finks' he knows what happened to Barkley. ...meanwhile Tune in January to see how this cliff hanger ends.....*spoiler - the manager goes like every other season*
  14. Transfer Talk Topic

    Says a lot about our faith in both how transfers are conducted at the club and Barkley, that such a scenario is even entertained as plausible. Can't wait till January for more high-jinks and japery...

    Considering what the importance of a top 4 finish, a good run in Europe and a good cup run is to our finances I am surprised we didnā€™t tackle the market more aggressively. Top 4 by no means guaranteed..if there are improvements in our squad they're marginal and our lack of numbers makes potential injuries a huge concern. Suppose there's always the January window should we need it........oh God :)

    I hope so James. From the outside looking in, there appears to be a clear disconnect between the various strands involved in our transfer activities, while we as fans collectively scratch our heads trying to decode fact from fiction. Conte on a beach in one country, Diego on the beach in another and Ross Barkley on another planet...it can only be Chelsea šŸ‘Œ
  17. Transfer Talk Topic

    The posturing that has gone on between Costa and Chelsea is pathetic - benefits neither and is to the detriment of both. Neither is exclusively responsible but allowing it to continue to cast its shadow is foolhardy. As far as Costa is concerned, his 'devotion' to AM has more to do with a change in transfer policy in China than any affection...Costa was/is as loyal as his options....and foolishly he left himself with one - so the debacle continues. Still though, we persist in playing games. My view? We should have got rid yesterday to AM at any sanitised fee.

    Last I heard, the steering went on his jet-ski and he was last spotted heading in the direction of Kiribati.
  19. Transfer Talk Topic

    Said it before and I'll say it again.... In Conte I trust.
  20. Transfer Talk Topic

    I hate the fact their words have substance. I'm f***ing fuming
  21. Transfer Talk Topic

    So much for the English spine... Oxlade-Chamberlain, Barkley, Drinkwater...
  22. Transfer Talk Topic

    James, you've nothing to apologise for... You're skepticism was well founded.
  23. Transfer Talk Topic

    Utter f**king joke of a window. That is all.
  24. Transfer Talk Topic

    As Champions of England. Embarrassing.
  25. Transfer Talk Topic

    Mendy has joined Nice on loan....not looking good for Drinkwater
