    Quite. I'd really have liked to have been able to have JT & Rudiger together. I get the feeling they'd have been a really good pairing.

    I have a feeling he's about to sign (or has signed) a new contract. Don't know why, just an inkling. Hope I'm not wrong though. I think we could be about to see 3/4 players renewing. Rudiger is apparently about to and there must surely be a big offer coming for Kante?

    I was at the game last night and it really struck me that this was the first time I've seen him play with what felt like real purpose. Granted the opposition were poor, but he seemed to really want to show everybody what he was all about. When was the last time one of our CMs made a run like he did for the first goal? Was it Lampard? Feels like it's years since we've scored a goal like that. The second he just showed really great strength and poise and the third again felt like ages since one of our midfielders just looked to pick a corner out first time from the edge of the box. I suppose the only questions now are a) when will he play again and b) will he be able to keep this level of performance going ?

    Oh Christ. Do you remember that? Tried to overhead kick it and booted it back towards his own goal. What a grade A Wally

    I notice Liverpool spending about £300m in 12-18 months and Man United throwing money at the wall in the hope it builds them a team has gone strangely under the radar as well. Wasn't it Noel Gallagher who said that United point out everyone else's spending whilst it's raining tenners at their place? But we continue to ruin football....

    Ah. That video from the concourse away at Atletico. Where he (and in many ways our season), really peaked. Unfortunately.
  7. Tiemoue Bakayako

    Interestingly, that definition often also describes the behaviour of compulsive or habitual liars when faced with difficult or challenging questions.... Trump does it regularly. Mourinho's pretty good at it in press conferences too these days.... Anyway, regarding Bakayoko, I hope this loan works out well for him and that he gets a decent move (to Milan or otherwise) out of it. I sort of feel that there's probably a useful player in there, but the move here really came at the wrong time for him and us - he had to sink or swim very quickly and unfortunately, he ended up sinking. I don't think our struggles, tactics or performances last season helped him (or others), but it's clear he's best served going somewhere else to play and that our intended style and approach means he won't be a good fit for us this season.

    If he's not needed/wanted why are we loaning him though? Why not just get some revenue in by selling him?

    Yes, he absolutely has been. I think he deserves a bit more respect than he gets to be honest. Also, it's not like we're light in that department given we have Emerson who has done perfectly well despite having limited chances so far. Azpilicueta was a more than decent option in that left-back role under Jose too.

    And now
  11. If it is actually the case that he binned off a striker that scored 20+ goals in two title-winning campaigns, whilst being a talismanic figure for the team and supporters and wanted to replace him with Alvaro Morata then it's no bloody wonder that the club didn't listen to him over transfer targets really. I've got to the point where I just want to move on completely from Conte and last season. With everything I read it just feels more and more obvious to me that he lost the plot completely or was busy throwing tantrums and was just making decisions to spite the club or certain players. For me, the Huddersfield game was just a very sour cherry on top of a s**t filled cake to emphasize that point.

    I thought we'd confirmed that he's coming in for a season as part of the deal for Courtois? If Madrid (and City) want to play silly buggers now, we should be putting £15m on TC's fee tbh. But surely them pulling out after deal has been agreed would be a breach of contract and would leave all of this with our lawyers?
  13. Really finding myself very chuffed with this one. Despite having seen very little if anything of the lad actually goalkeeping. Just feels like we've made a real statement of intent signing him. Hoping he's a fantastic goalkeeper for us for some considerable time ahead.

    Keith or Kevin?
  15. Transfer Talk Topic

    This. In a heartbeat. From the bits I've seen of him, he looks the sort of player that'd do really well for us.
