    Garth Crooks (https://www.bbc.com/sport/football/48171718) "Ruben Loftus-Cheek: This is a lad I thought was better off staying at Crystal Palace on loan, playing every week and continuing his international development as a consequence of playing regularly. However the player decided to return to Chelsea - or more to the point, the club insisted he returned. Immediately his game time dropped, he lost all the momentum he gained from his time at Palace and he struggled to be the star his performances suggest he might be. It's time Ruben Loftus-Cheek made some serious decisions about his career at Chelsea. The lad can play, as was clearly evident against Watford." What an absolute garbage of a comment! Poor journalism! The narrative of "Chelsea doesn't play youngsters" is silly bearing in mind how much RLC and CHO have played this season.
  2. New Kits

    This is truly the best football kit I have ever seen so far ever! The idea to draw those black lines like the stands from our standium is fantastic! The intro video as well: #IT'S A CHELSEA THING

    Agreed - so often he walks with his head down & complaining without really going for it.
  5. Signing US player to increase our US market presence and commercial value and eventually sell the club to US owners?

    Great analysis with some stats from Opta: https://www.bbc.com/sport/football/46442319 basically we are passing a lot but the ball is moving too slow and our strikers are just not good enough. as for the Kante discussion - I not yet convinced he is played out of position - Id like to see stats how many interceptions he made up top. He can be key to those, think of Pedro goal against Fulham. The problem is that Luiz can't defend and is completely dependent on the DM helping him with some cover.

    The signing that excites me the most is Kovacic. He has incredible close ball control and great acceleration to lose his marker in midfield and essentially cut of the first line of defence. This will come in so handy against the teams who pack 10 players without the ball. Kova can take a line of 5 out of the game . Morata's confidence and finishing is currently poor, but I hope he can still keep running and opening spaces - Kovacic will be there to place those passes for him.

    Yerry Mina over Rugani anyone? :) One of the best CBs from WC.

    Auba is also fox in the box type of player. Correct me if I'm wrong 97 out of this 98 goals in Bundesliga were scored form within the penalty area.

    We should have just gone Bats <> Auba and made things easier for everyone. Yes, this would have been a bit more expensive option, but I'm sure club would have had the finances to facilitate this deal.
  11. Transfer Talk Topic

    I'd have Isco over Rodriguez all day long! Also the Spaniard would probably come cheaper.

    Conte quoted: "If you look now at our squad, we have only five defenders - four that started today and an academy player Ola Aina. If one defender is injured or banned, then we are in trouble, but the club and me know this and we are talking every day to improve the squad. They're not stupid, they know we need more defenders. I guess it just depends on the market more if someone is actually willing to sell to us. "We know that this market is very difficult. It's crazy. I don't want to buy only to buy. I want to buy the right profile for Chelsea, the right investment for the solution and for the future." Rodriguez LB and Koulibaly CB would be perfect.
  13. Great support yesterday!!! Proud of everyone who made their voice clear!!!

    Salah looks impressive to me. Always quick feet on the ball
  20. Apparantely Eden is saying this: The Belgium international player has always insisted he is happy in London but when asked in an interview with Bein Sport about a potential future move to the Santiago Bernabeu he said: "Who would not be interested in Real Madrid?" http://www.beinsports.fr/news/title/hazard-le-paris-sg-c-est-non/article/yrnd6on6h6nm1ujjei7jh64kz Hmmmm.

    Was watching a few videos of Diego Costa on youtube. Seems like he&#39;s one type of player where he is good in space. Haven't seen too much of what he has done when he needs to create space himself to get a goal scoring opportunity. Not sure if he would fit into EPL.
  22. Transfer Talk Topic

    agreed. I am still gutted about selling Daniel to Lvpool...
