  1. Transfer Talk Topic

    Abramovich’s Israeli passport does entitle him to come to Britain and, although not to work directly for money, he can go to Chelsea and have meetings and watch matches if he wants to. Asked whether he put the stadium on hold in indignation at his treatment by the government, Buck says: “He put it on hold a few months after the incident in Salisbury; we can all draw our own conclusions as to whether that’s related.” He declined to say how Abramovich feels about being made unwelcome, after the UK accepted him and his money for so long. But the impression of Abramovich feeling unjustly targeted and rarely visiting, and the stadium project postponed, creates a perception that Chelsea is on hold and the young players are being given opportunities in that stasis. Buck says no and is emphatic that Abramovich is still committed to Chelsea: “I understand what you’re saying and it is hard to disprove it, except to say: let’s see what happens in the next transfer window. The point I am making – it’s a glib one – if we go out in the next window and spend a zillion, it’s pretty hard to argue that things are on hold.” didn't spend anything in Jan! Lets see what happens in the summer

    I'm not sold on Jody yet too. That remark/tweet to Jose was weird. Id rather have Joey Cole or JT assisting.
  4. Transfer Talk Topic

    Joey being a pundit is a breath of fresh air. If not Lamps, one day it would be nice to see JT as manager and Joey advising him.
  5. Transfer Talk Topic

    He actually did pretty well in the last few matches.

    Good one. Strong and good at hold up play. Good finisher

    I vividly remember watching a few Celtic games at that time, thinking that guy is something special. He was head and shoulders above everyone else in that team and therefore league. You can never predict someone becoming the very best until you not only see their talent on TV/live, but also get to closely know their character. Turns out he has the minerals too.

    VVD was immense at Celtic.

    Alaba for me. Top class defender, at peak age, 27.

    Exactly my thoughts!
  12. great article
  13. There were some discussion about Kepa and his desire to stay on the line. He tried to come out for a ball against Norway in 91st minute, commited a yellow card offence and conceded a penalty.
  14. Amazing analysis on out set places:

    I thought he played rather well - got a few assists and should have gotten more if he would have squared the ball to Tammy on few occassions, but he just seemed desperate to get that first goal. He is having a nice break over this international week, so I'm sure he'll do well once he's back in action.

    True. However, it sounds like Danny is saying 'I don't remember anything because I was drunk and I don't have any complains' and the police won't start a case.

    To be devils advocate: they only had 2 and us 29 signed unlawfully
  18. Transfer Talk Topic

    yeah, you have a point. Maybe the injury was quite bad and he underperformed since the last transfer window rumours?

    Last summer, Fekir looked set to join Liverpool for £53m but the move broke down with reports claiming the 26-year-old had failed a medical. Now the Ligue 1 club have been forced into the sale of their captain, with his contract set to expire at the end of the coming season.

    I think Bats is a great finisher. 99 shot, 0 pace 0 playing back to goal. Tammy appears to be a good poacher as well. We need right tactics to feed them with chances, playing it to the channels or on the counter wont work for example.
  22. Transfer Talk Topic

    Perhaps we need to play Bats or Abraham and just cross as much as possible to the box. (Giroud would also be suited to this role)
  23. Transfer Talk Topic

    Conte benched Luiz and we saw what happened.
  24. Transfer Talk Topic

    The issue is that benching Luiz can be toxic to the whole squad.
  25. Khobar's Legacy

    True, I thought Velverde lacked cojones to play N.Semedo, which would have been the right decision.
