  1. Transfer Talk Topic

    Sceptical about the Cuadrado link. Doesn't fit the profile of player we have been going for post Jan 2010. 27 in May.
  2. NK Schalke 0 Chelsea 5

    Or, perhaps more pertinently, Diego Costa.
  3. And now nobody is talking about our 6 point lead. Very good from JM.
  4. Transfer Talk Topic

    Sterling is 19. He is the best player in his age group.
  5. Chelsea 1 FC Schalke 04 1

    Drogba is here as a cheerleader. An ally for José (if (when?) he needs one). Strange that he started. Maybe there's something in store for Remy on the weekend, or further down the line...
  6. Transfer Talk Topic

    I think the only thing that is very probable is that noone posting here knows how transfer addons, loan payments etc. work.
  7. Transfer Talk Topic

    23.7-((17+wages+general costs of such a player)*inflation) Doubt we even broke even on this one.
  8. Transfer Talk Topic to think about...
  9. Official: Cesc Fabregas Departs For Monaco

    Quite happy. Perhaps the most clear indicator that other clubs were in fact interested is their vehement denials of that fact.
  10. Official: Eden Hazard Departs For Real Madrid

    I'm fairly confident he is off next year though. I might suspect that even more if he is offered a new contract. I've done no research into this, but you often see players get a new contract and move a year later. I guess so they (both the club and player) are in a stronger bargaining position the next year. Then again, we've never sold a player we didn't want to (2004-). Will be interested to see how this plays out.

    Does anyone know why the Luiz deal is yet to go through (or Costa)?
  12. Transfer Talk Topic

    Ramires is one of our most important players. He's a freak. Forget Hazard, he is the player that would be hardest to replace (like for like) in this squad.
  13. Transfer Talk Topic

    When did we have members of the club (JM, Torres, Azpil) comment on a player without us signing him? I genuineley can't remember.
  14. Ballack, Cole (Joe), Carvalho may have been told similar in 2010.
  15. Media / Press

    At least he might provide some entertainment as he's a bit of a WUM (as most people in jobs like his need to be). More generally I think people need to understand the incentives of those in the media. They are not trying to actively promote biased views, they are trying to generate interest in their stories. In the days of internet advertising hits on their webpage are the main aim. This goal is most easily achieved by writing stories that get a reaction. A fair and insightful article (in mainstream media) will be much less profitable for the company. Of course the ex pro "pundits" are a different kettle of fish altogether.
