  1. According to our official site, we have an assistant goalkeeper coach but no goalkeeper coach.... https://www.chelseafc.com/en/teams/first-team?pageTab=management I presume the plan at some point is to sign some first team coaches? or do we already have them and the website is slow to release the details? I saw some staff at the Milan game I hadn't seen before
  2. Sarri still doesn't seem to have any Staff other than Zola? any idea whats going on there?
  3. Transfer Talk Topic

    I get the Green signing but can we not do the whole smiley contract signing pics and welcome video?! sneak him in via the backdoor, its embarrassing to parade him like this especially with all the Courtois rumours
  4. Transfer Talk Topic

    I feel like Donnarumma has more upside anyway if we can pull that one off
  5. Who is actually coaching the players at the moment? - we don't seem to have announced any other staff and the official site still lists all of Conte's staff.....
  6. Transfer Talk Topic

    Hazard is easier to get for them, he wants to go and Chelsea know they risk losing him for nothing, I actually think Chelsea will let Hazard go for a lot less but there's only 4 or 5 players who can replace Hazard and Mbappe is one of them
  7. Transfer Talk Topic

    If we can get 200 million for Hazard, at least tempt PSG with a 250 million bid for Mbappe
  8. Transfer Talk Topic

    Well what I mean is yes we recovered that money in sales, and then spent it on 6 players, none of who improve on from our first 11 from last year. What I mean is we could have spent it on 3 world class players who are better than what we had last year and used the players we already have for depth....
  9. Transfer Talk Topic

    The most worrying aspect I find is that we have spent about £200 million since last season on new players, and not *improved* on on our first eleven from last year (fair enough losing Costa couldn't be helped). If we had been able to keep the starting 11 from last year and use that £200 million to bring in Sanchez, Laporte, Vidal we would probably be top of the table, all while keeping Abraham, Bats, Musonda. Kenedy etc for squad depth, hell we would even have had spare change to do the Barkley deal
  10. Transfer Talk Topic

    Why on earth are Monaco letting Mbappe go to PSG on a LOAN?! maybe they realise no other team in France is going to win their league ever again and are just giving up.
  11. Transfer Talk Topic

    Would prefer Draxler or Lemar to Mahrez TBH
  12. Transfer Talk Topic

    Hoping Llorente to Spurs news means Roman goes balls out crazy and gets Belotti for his release clause
  13. Transfer Talk Topic

    Somebody sell Drinkwater to me, our rivals (champions league rivals because we are ya know a 'top' european team again) are signing the likes of Neymar, Mbappe, Sanchez(possibly), Bonucci, Dembele. etc etc If he just a backup.. then why did we sell Chalobah and replace him with a 30 million backup with no future upside... so if is to compete with kante/fab/bakayoko... sell me why he is as good, I just...can't see... it If Swansea or Liverpool sign Renato Sanches while we sign Drinkwater I think I might lose my mind
  14. Transfer Talk Topic

    Bellotti will only go for his release clause, that has been made very clear, if he was going to join, he would be here already.
  15. Transfer Talk Topic

    I wish I was in charge of transfers at Chelsea... Draxler from PSG is available - bid 45m - DONE Lemar from Monaco - 60m will do that - DONE Alex Grimaldo - 20m will get him - DONE Sell Costa and Remy for a combined 55m we end the window with a net spend of about 86 million .... still less than most of our rivals
  16. Transfer Talk Topic

    I'm gonna pile on too..... Matic
  17. Transfer Talk Topic

    Torres was a complete failure and his wages were a problem, PSG have no reason to sell Luiz
  18. Transfer Talk Topic

    Silly rumour, PSG have more money than sense, why would they sell Luiz for 32 million when they paid 50 million for him? Chelsea perhaps made an enquiry but there is no way PSG would sell for that amount. Alonso will be the main business tomorrow.
  19. Thibaut Courtois Departs

    Is it me or did Jose say in his press conference, "if Petr starts, Courtois can think about leaving" ?
  20. New Stadium Plans

    That stadium has already been planned and approved though, a joint NFL/Football stadium would have specific needs and a blank slate.
  21. New Stadium Plans

    Well the thought being that the NFL have clearly had discussions with a premiership team about building a new stadium, any NFL team would likely be in London and Chelsea are probably the only club looking to build a stadium with a capacity above 50k right now.
  22. New Stadium Plans

    The following article may be of interest, could chelsea be interested in sharing the stadium with an NFL team? presuming the NFL shares the cost of building the stadium? http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2014/07/14/league-commences-process-of-putting-the-squeeze-on-wembley/
  23. OFFICIAL - David Luiz Joins PSG.

    Thought Luiz looked really good last night when he was playing in midfield at the end of the game, I really really really think he could do a good job there.
  24. OFFICIAL - David Luiz Joins PSG.

    Actually, why did he tweet that? he wasn't going to the Barca game as he tweeted he was on his way back to London before the game had started....
  25. New Kits

    I hope our 3rd kit is like this.... http://www.chelseamegastore.com/stores/chelsea/products/product_details.aspx?pid=105059&cid=10721 very nice! Obviously without the silly line around the adidas logo.
