  1. Chelsea vs Leicester City

    They have the momentum, and shockingly we have lost all momentum after beating RM and city. Can't see us winning or scoring for thag matter. Don't care who plays, it's going to be the same sideways drivel.
  2. Manchester City 1 Chelsea 2

    Facts. With WHU losing to everton, the top 4 is anything but done. Just win our league game against Leicester and it would be done for all purposes. Silva should be only used in games where necessary Zouma is a ticking time bomb as a sweeper. I would love for Rudi and Zouma to swap places if zouma is on the field. I can see Zouma being the first one out this window.

    I think a new LWB/Back up LWB will be no.1 on priority. Also, would go big for Rice I would personally be happy with: GK: Mendy, Kepa, 3rd GK CB: Silva, Rudi, AC, Azpi, Tomori, Ampadu LWB: Chilwell, New LB RWB: RJ, CHO (Azpi for cover) CM: Kante, Jorginho/Kovacic, Rice, Gallagher (Ampadu for cover) FWD: Mount, Kai, Werner, Pulisic, Ziyech, Tammy (CHO for cover) Sell: Zouma, Jorginho/Kovacic, Giroud, Bats, Bakayoko, Emerson, Alonso, Moses, Barkley, RLC, Piazon, Baba, Kenedy

    I have given reasons to answer "why not" in multiple posts above. A. I dont see him as a generational talent. B. Given "A", I can't see how 30-40% of revenue should be spent on him. C. We are bloated in forwards position. We have Mount, Werner, Kai, Pulisic, Ziyech, CHO, Tammy. Those are 7 very good options. Getting a 150m+ player would mean that he becomes undroppable, hence leading to a lot of squad disharmony. D. I simply dont like it when teams are built around one person. Such a transfer would make it inevitable that our whole squad and play style would revolve around Haaland. E. Dont want to become another PSG where they are hopelessly top heavy. Our mid options are 30 year old Kante, 29 year old jorginho, our defense has the options of 31 year old azpi, 36 year old silva, 28 year old Rudiger. In coming years, we will need 4-5 world class signings to replace them, no point of getting sub-par options in those positions while having 500m worth of forwards.

    Tough game, a lot will depend on the team sheets. I would play Mendy AC Silva Rudi RJ Kante Jorginho Chilwell Ziyech Pulisic Mount
  6. Chelsea 2 Real Madrid 0 (3 - 1 on aggregate)

    What a night. What a performance. Have to Laud every player out there. Just loved it. Only damper was our finishing. Need to take our chances against City.

    Disagree here. We expect/hope kai, Werner, ziyech to have a much better season with some settling time and pre-season, and yet we are literally throwing atleast 1 of them out of the team. I definitely think we need to give them time rather than buying haaland for record breaking money which can hardly be justified

    I think this is where we very strongly differ in opinion. I don't think he is anywhere near mbappe in quality (I rate mbappe just after the big 2 along with Neymar). Well, no PL side has ever had a 150+m transfer. What is the record for the highest PL transfer fee? 80m? This is literally doubling it. Hence the expectation. I can bet you are that even without haaland, we will win the league in the next 2-3 years. That's the quality of forwards we have, and none of them bar ziyech is anywhere near their primes. Hard to justify an investment specially when it amounts to 30-40% of a club's annual revenue
  9. Transfer Talk Topic

    Did I? Sorry if I did, but always meant it as goals scored for the season as a whole. Hence also compared werner's whole tally of last season to haaland's Does the age matter for the comparision and the point? The point of the comparision is that just because he is scoring 30+ goals playing for BVB, does not mean it would translate to the PL. The quality of opponents is far far better in PL, fixture congestion leading to tiredness, more games than the bundesliga, 2 cup competitions, no winter break, far more media attention in case of goal drought. If thats the be all and end all of it, then why even have a forum to discuss anything? None of us are on the board and nothing we say actually matters, does it? RA was happy paying 40m on drinkwater, does not mean that we fans, can't discuss what a cluster**** that was. We here are discussing what 150+m on Haaland would mean. What the expecations/demand be out of him.

    Fair enough. Personally seems like a case of too many cooks. If we buy Haaland and keep the existing forwards except Giroud, that would mean we have Haaland, Werner, Mount, Kai, Pulisic, Ziyech, CHO, tammy to choose from. So the best 3 would possibly be, Mount-Haaland-Kai. And we bring in 1 forward ,as the CM and WB position requires far more rotation, specially hoping and expecting that we would be a goal or 2 up by the 60th/70th minute in majority of games. I mean at an average 3-4 forwards wont even come off the bench. Hell, some of them wont even make the bench, would they? Mendy AC Silva Rudi RJ Kova Kante Chilwell Kai Haaland Mount Subs - Kepa (GK), Azpi (CB/RWB), New LB/Alonso (LWB), Jorginho (CM), Werner, Ziyech, Pulisic I mean even city dont boast this kind of options and fire power. Too me, its overkill and would probably work best in FIFA or so. In real life, I can see a few of them (think CHO and Tammy would be the first ones), asking to leave, If not the big money signings of werner and pulisic.

    https://www.transfermarkt.com/kai-havertz/leistungsdatendetails/spieler/309400/plus/0?saison=2018&verein=&liga=&wettbewerb=&pos=&trainer_id= 20 goals in 18/19 and 18 goals in 19/20. Hardly a case for a definitive "Nope". https://www.transfermarkt.com/erling-haaland/leistungsdatendetails/spieler/418560/plus/0?saison=2020&verein=&liga=&wettbewerb=&pos=&trainer_id= https://www.transfermarkt.com/timo-werner/leistungsdatendetails/spieler/170527/plus/0?saison=2019&verein=&liga=&wettbewerb=&pos=&trainer_id= Haaland has 37 goals this season, werner had 34 last season. Hardly a case to sign ANOTHER forward for 150m I am not judging Werner and Kai based on this season. I too think they will come good (atleast Kai for sure, werner seems like he lacks confidence). Point is even if they have good seasons next season, that would be 15-20 goals. Simply put, I dont see haaland coming here or in PL and having 25-30 goal a season for the next 5 years, because that is the only level of output that a transfer fee of 150+m justify.

    If you read one of my previous posts, you would know exactly what I think of Halland. But I also dont think he is anywhere near worthy of the price being touted. For that price, you get a player like messi/CR who change the dynamics of the team and with them the league itself. Halland, for all his quality, is not of that quality. Btw, how many goals did a 22 year old werner have? Hell, scrap that, did not Kai have consecutive 20+ goal seasons in the bundesliga in his "teen" years. How many goals do they have this season combined? I dont think it should be hard to understand why people are saying that those goals and stats are pointless because they are not going to give you that kind of goal scoring output. No where near.
  13. Transfer Talk Topic

    Exactly this.

    Firmino is hardly an out and out striker. City has barely played the whole season with an out and out striker. An out and out no.9 is not a necessary requirement for success. Also getting Halland would mean having Mount, Kai, Werner, Pulisic, Ziyech as the options for 2 positions. A lot of unhappy personnel. It only requires 1 injury for a month (like Kova's) for our midfield to be thread bare. Kante's recent record with injuries is quite poor too. Only a matter of time where we are left with no options. Also, surprising that you are happy with 3 players for 2 positions when it come to CM, yet want to add an 8th to 3 positions up top. Weird.
