  1. Following Chelsea's Loans

    Yes. One more season on loan and he'll be ready to compete for a place in our first team - or could be sold for a decent price. Pašalić has had two decent loans so it's time to see what he's made of before he becomes a nomad.
  2. Following Chelsea's Loans

    I'd keep Chalobah but I don't think he will get much of a chance. Christensen should have a second year on loan. Bamford has had a bad year and I think the club has already made up their mind. Cuadrado wants to stay in Italy and I don't blame him.
  3. Following Chelsea's Loans

    My opinion on the summer choices for the many many loanees: Sell: Cuadrado, Djilobodji, Marin, Moses, Atsu, Delac, Van Ginkel, Kalas, Omeruo, Bamford, Piazon, Davey, Chalobah, Cuevas, Swift, Perica, Houghton, Rodriguez Loan again or loan extend: Hector, Kane, Wallace, Nathan, Christensen, Angban, Musonda, Pantic, Boga, Brown First team squad: Blackman, Pasalic, Aké, Baker, Solanke I don't know how many takers we'll have for a few of those I'd like to get rid of, whilst there are others that are good players but it seems that they'll never fit the bill.
  4. Squad Status: 2015/2016 Season

    Striker to replace Rémy, 2 CMs, 2 CBs if Terry doesn't get a new contract and also another attacking midfielder. Then we can think about upgrades.
  5. Transfer Talk Topic

    £60m no, £50m yes, once upon a time.
  6. Mikel John Obi

    Really-deep-lying playmaker
  7. Bournemouth 1 Chelsea 4

    Every single "senior" player that we have has been forced into an ill-balanced XI, along with two "senior" loanees on the bench. What a waste of time. No idea where Oscar is, hadn't heard mention of an injury.
  8. Bournemouth 1 Chelsea 4

    Youngsters Dabo, Aina, Colkett and Palmer have to be involved today. If Pato or Falcao are given minutes aheas of the young players we become even more ridiculous.
  9. Squad Status: 2015/2016 Season

    Attempt 1001 at a preferred squad for next season: Courtois, Begovic, Blackman Ivanovic, Azpilicueta, Terry, Cahill, Zouma, new CB, Miazga (covering for Zouma until Jan),Baba, Aké Fabregas, new CM, new CM, Mikel, RLC, Baker Hazard, Willian, Pedro, new AM, Traoré, Kenedy Costa, new CF, Solanke Matic, Oscar and Rémy out. New contract for Terry. No more favours for the agents of Pato and Falcao. 5 big new signings, 3 players back from loan. I'd replace Mikel too but I think 3 new centre mids would be too much for one window. Even with this I think we'd need to upgrade Cahill, Fabregas and Pedro before we'd be ready to win the league again.
  10. Positivity corner

    I'm not that big a fan of Kenedy, lots of hustle but not much quality - Traoré and RLC becoming viable first team options is the big positive from the last few months.

    At least RLC looks like he should be a first team player next season. The problem is we need about 17 others and I think we have about 5 that are up to it. We need to summer like it's 2003.
  12. Chelsea 0 Manchester City 3

    The answer is above (181 minutes) and any increase on that is wasteful. I don't think that Traoré's best position is up front but he should be the Costa sub for the last few games - he's the only person who can play up front likely to be in next season's squad.
  13. Chelsea 0 Manchester City 3

    Too many!
  14. Chelsea 0 Manchester City 3

    I'm not particularly impressed with either but think it's too early to give up on them.
  15. Squad Status: 2015/2016 Season

    I don't see why people think that just because 352 was the most suitable formation for Juventus in Serie A at that time, that means that Conte will immediately impose it on a squad and league that doesn't suit it. Our squad is built for 4231 or 433 and I can't see that changing. Some of our best players (Azpi, Hazard, Willian) would be wasted in a 352.
