  1. Transfer Talk Topic

    Hopefully there will be a large number of incoming transfers in June 2020 which will fall in the same reporting period as the Morata income. So increased player amortisation covered by one-off profits.
  2. Transfer Talk Topic

    Postponing the Morata fee until next summer will help to ensure that additional costs for 2019/20 are partially covered, as we already have the Hazard fee to ensure a healthy profit for 2018/19 despite the lack of CL football!
  3. Squad Status: 2018/2019 Season

    I think that was wishful thinking on my behalf.
  4. Frank Lampard Appointed Chelsea Head Coach

    Who had 9am Thursday morning in the sweepstake?
  5. Squad Status: 2018/2019 Season

    Leaving us with 20 players: GK: Arrizabalaga, Caballero FB: Azpilicueta, Zappacosta, Alonso, Emerson CB: Rüdiger, Luiz, Christensen, Ampadu CM: Kanté, Jorginho, Loftus-Cheek, Kovacic, Drinkwater WF: Willian, Pedro, Pulisic, Hudson-Odoi ST: Giroud Then with gaps to be filled with 5-6 from: Blackman, Cumming, James, Tomori, Zouma, Bakayoko, Mount, Kenedy, Abraham, Batshuayi

    Would anyone pay money for those two?
  7. I think that Mount is unlikely to play so deep. In a 4-2-3-1 I'd expect him to play at no.10. I think that's why we're forced to sign Kovacic - we really don't have any other options for the deep positions in midfield, unless Drinkwater's career can somehow be resurrected.
  8. Frank Lampard Appointed Chelsea Head Coach

    I think that Lampard is likely to bring Shay Given with him from Derby to be the first team GK coach. Lollichon is likely to remain in his position.
  9. Kawasaki Frontale vs Chelsea FC

    Given the post-Copa America, Gold Cup and U-21 holidays, I'd expect something like the below: Arrizabalaga Azpilicueta Christensen Luiz Emerson Ampadu Jorginho Pedro Barkley Kenedy Giroud Subs: Caballero, Alonso, Zappacosta, Drinkwater, Kovacic, Cumming, McCormick, C.Brown, Callagher, Guehi, Zouma, Sterling Coach: Lampard

    If we sell Pasalic, after Aina, K. Hazard, Angban and Dabo have left we only need to find homes for: Batshuayi, Piazon, Baba Rahman, Morata, Moses, Miazga, Baker, Palmer, Musonda, Hector, I.Brown, Kalas, Omeruo, Grant, Maddox, Bakayoko, Da Silva, Tomori, Nathan, Kenedy, Pantic, Clarke-Salter, Sterling, Baxter, Chalobah and van Ginkel. That's assuming that Abraham, Zouma, Mount, James and Blackman at least start the season with the first team (fitness and post-U21 holiday pending).

    Jay da Silva?
  12. 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.
