  1. You should post more often. I don't much like Sarri and the cultish following but moving to possession based football is a big step forward for the club. 2/3 years of struggle and then we might have a solid foundation which could be built on by a more adaptable manager to achieve the holy grail of winning things, playing attractive football and using the best of our academy. Rome wasn't built in a day. Booing is an embarrassment, look at the mess some clubs are in.

    I realise you may be deliberately exaggerating, but I think that Zouma, Ampadu and Tomori would be the best options if the club were to use the transfer ban to integrate young players. Luiz should not be a regular next season. I'd like him to be more of a club cheerleader - like Zola or Cudicini but with a playing contract still.
  5. Leicester City 0 Chelsea 0

    There's a good rest period before the EL final, not the 10 day nightmare people are saying. We play in the USA on the 15th (local time) and then there's 2 weeks until the EL final on the 29th.
  6. Chelsea 1 Eintracht Frankfurt 1 (Chelsea win on penalties)

    Once we had a solid base with no difference makers, then a load of difference makers but no solid base. Apart from two golden patches, Aug 2014-Jan 2015 and Oct 2016-May 2017, we haven't got the balance right since 2010.
  7. Transfer Talk Topic Transfer window in England opens on 11 June, closes on 2 September - although the Premier League and Championship have agreed to a deadline of the Thursday before the first PL match.

    What else is he going to say in press conferences ahead of crucial matches? He's a lot fatter and slower than he was at Napoli so there's no chance I want him back next season?
  9. Chelsea 4 Slavia Prague 3 (5-3 Agg)

    I was at the game and a couple behind me were booing when Jorginho came on. Earlier in the match I'd heard them say "where is Prague anyway, is it its own country?"

    Assuming we can't sign anyone I'd like to see: Arrizabalaga, Caballero, anyone (Green, Blackman, Bulka, Cumming, Collins) Azpilicueta, Reece James Luiz, Rüdiger, Christensen, Guehi Emerson, Alonso Kante, Jorginho, RLC, Barkley, Mount Hazard, Willian, Pedro, Pulisic, Hudson-Odoi Tammy Abraham, Giroud, Batshuayi Ampadu would go on loan, with Guehi making up numbers in training whilst playing for the development squad. James can also cover as CB. Ideally we'd buy two new midfielder so that Barkley could be sold, plus another striker instead of Batshuayi. I'd also like da Silva to replace one of our left backs but he's likely to be sold.
  11. Liverpool 2 Chelsea 0

    What about Spurs in 2016 or Demba Ba-day?
  12. Official: Chelsea sign Gonzalo Higuain

    You have a very optimistic view of the club's long-term planning!
  13. Chelsea 3 Brighton & Hove Albion 0

    I'd like the below: Kepa Azpilicueta Rüdiger Christensen Emerson Kanté Jorginho Hudson-Odoi Loftus-Cheek Hazard Giroud So very similar to the 4-3-3 but inverting the midfield triangle to leave Kanté next to Jorginho and giving Loftus-Cheek more license to get into the box.
  14. Official: Chelsea sign Gonzalo Higuain

    I'm more worried about what's around his middle than what is/isn't on top of his head.
  15. I'm not a Sarri fan and I'm very tired of his team selections but I'd rather the club sorted things out higher up before changing coach yet again. Let's get a real football board and an actual strategy in place incorporating style of play, recruitment, academy pathway etc. before yet another volte face.
