Yep. Mail reported accurately that we literally have 17 first team players on our books right now. Including 5 keepers, Remy, and some former academy players back from loan. 

The season starts in 2/3 weeks. As in, 14-21 days. 

Useless. We look totally exposed. 

You posted virtually the same thing twice in a matter of minutes. I've said it before but are you afraid that we will forget your opinion? 

No need.

In case the previous post wasn't clear, its annoying when the same point is made more than once. 

It's unnecessary duplication.

Some don't mind when you repeat the same point over and over but I do. It's infuriating.

Especially when that same point has only just been made.

Please stop.

But triple posting is ok?

I think you're missing some irony here Danny.

You and I draw different conclusions from this, I suspect.

Our willingness to let players go worries you.

In contrast, it reassures me that wheels are in motion to bring replacements and additional players in.

But then, I base my conclusions on precedent observed over several years.

You base yours on press reports and press speculation.

Each to their own.

Matt Law saying Chelsea "won't be rushed' into buying a striker.

Yep, it's not like the league season starts in less than a month and we don't have a first choice striker. Oh. It is. 

Honestly, our board. 

Right now we'll be starting with Bats, Willian and Pedro up front v Tottenham, with no wingers or backup strikers if players are injured or need replacing, or we need to change things, and no cover in midfield because Bakayoko is injured, and a squad barely big enough to fill the bench.

Sorry for my cynicism, but right now as it stands we're in a worse position than we were in 2015. They need to get deals done if they are actually ambitious to win the league this year.

I swear if Christian Benteke is our striker signing it'll be friggin hilarious! Come on guys, pre-season 2015-16 did happen. Be prepared for all eventualities.
