  1. Past hour
  2. Virgil Van Dijk

    While I understand why some people are against this transfer, I think it is great. We have lost Terry and Ivanovic going into this season. There are serious doubts when/if Zouma will reach his previous heights, and the level of Cahill is a topic of eternal debate. In other words, Azpilicueta and Luiz are the safest options we have as CB's (Christensen havent played for us regularly yet), and Cesar might see some playtime as RWB. For a team playing in four different competitions and wanting to compete in all of them, having two (potentially three) class CB's is just asking for trouble. Even with Christensen coming back, I really think we need to get a really good CB both for internal competition, but also for squad width. Is VVD worth £60m? There is no good answer to this as there are no "true" values to a player. They are worth as much as a club is willing to pay them. We did offer similar amounts for Bonucci and Koulibaly though, and a quick comparison on WhoScored shows that VVD was better than those two in almost every category (they were the superior passers). He is also the youngest, and is already established in the league. Honestly, barring any problems following his injury, I see it as a very intelligent purchase from Chelsea. He could be a world class CB for 7-8 seasons, and if Christensen does well they could pair up for the foreseeable future. Honestly, this window is looking impressive. The question whether we get our targets remain, but Lukaku, Bakayoko, Sandro and VVD would all be huge statement purchases. Also, it puts us in such a good position for future windows, being able to purchase fewer players but with better quality. I am not 100% about Lukaku, but I believe he can still develop under the right guidance. I would prefer a Lewandowski every day of the week, but I just dont see it as realistic. Lukaku/Bats Hazard/? Pedro/Willian Bakayoko/Matic Kante/Fabregas Sandro/Alonso Moses/Azpilicueta VVD Luiz Christensen/Cahill Courtois/Caballero This the lineup based on what we basically know as a fact are our targets for this window. We have also heard reports about Mahrez. It is very, very strong and allows us to for example next summer go big on RWB, RW and possibly a Tolisso-type CM.
  3. 21. Nemanja Matic

    Fair enough mate and I know where Austria is
  4. 21. Nemanja Matic

    I am from Austria, a (rather small) Country in the middle of Europe between Hungary and Germany. I'm with you, the FA Cup Final was not exactly his Moment of Glory. I absolutely agree on that. He had his fair share of bad Matches, no doubt about that. And I certainly can understand some of your Criticism. I post in other Threads as well, my Age doesnt have anything to do with liking a particular Football Style really. I think my Opinion about Matic is best summed up in Pictures, and I guess this Video serves very well fore that ... That's the Matic we need next Season, in a more offensive Position.
  5. 19. Diego Costa

    This is asking for an AVB treatment.
  6. Robert Lewandowski

    Not Sarcasm ... was the right thing that the club did so that these useless rumors doesnt have any bearing on the player while they try to mend their relationship with him (if it has spoiled like the BS going around)
  7. 19. Diego Costa

    Sit on the bench then.
  8. Alex Sandro

  9. 19. Diego Costa

  10. 21. Nemanja Matic

    Don't think anyone craves for tax fraud that's more a choice out of greed or desperation. You're never going to take those rose tinted glasses off where Matic is concerned even though I find it odd that after looking at your profile a man of your age only posts about Matic and nothing else. Can I ask out of interest what country you are from ?. Anyway I'm not going to post anymore about Matic I'm going to spend more time practicing nonchalant lobs maybe that way I can hopefully not get brushed aside and have rings run around me like Matic in the cup final.
  11. Today
  12. 21. Nemanja Matic

    Thanks Mate, I like you too. I always supported Chelsea and I support Matic as well as all the other Players, but him in particular because I like his Style of Play. When I play Football with Friends, I often try to play like him ... Like ... Reclaiming the Ball in my own Half, dribbling past 3 ore 4 Opponents and then maybe playing some nice Pass through a Lane in the opposing Defense ore setting up a Teamplayer for Goal with a nonchalant Lob.
  13. Virgil Van Dijk

    city spent £92m on stones and mangala, and didnt get a single decent cb for that money. This would be horribly expensive, but im more worried about christensen than VVD not being good enough
  14. Virgil Van Dijk

    Is he fit again btw ?
  15. Alex Sandro

    Not believing anything until he said he's leaving or staying with his own mouth. Ijust hope we have a plan B in case.
  16. Virgil Van Dijk

    Is he worth the risk of losing Christensen in the long term? I doubt it.
  17. Leonardo Bonucci

    If we get sandro,bakayoko,VVD,Lukaku imo that's a very good window. ppl will still moan we haven't brought messi or ronaldo
  18. Virgil Van Dijk

    As much as those signings strengthen our squad and I don't want to sound greedy here but we really still need to add a right wing back, creative midfielder and another attacking player upfront. Plus, is the strike duo of Lukaku and Batshuayi really enough to challenge on 4 fronts?
  19. Virgil Van Dijk

    NO NO NO DON'T BUY. When do we ever give a chance to our own? Ake and Christensen?
  20. Leonardo Bonucci

    I agree I'll be happy with getting sandro just and buy VVD of Southampton
  21. Robert Lewandowski

    Dude u have 18 what apps messages from 10 chats lol you must be popular guy
  22. 21. Nemanja Matic

    Do you support chelsea or do you support matic?? Cause you never fuck up about him lol
  23. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang

    He has some type of control of the club for example Ake said last month I would need to speak to Emenalo about my chelsea future the last I check conte was manager Ake should be speaking to Conte about his Chelsea future not Emenalo
  24. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang

    I could picture hazard and him pairing together they would be perfect in 3-5-2 with hazard playing a second striker
  25. 21. Nemanja Matic

    Look, that's why Words like underrated and overrated exist. It was LeTissiers choice to stay with Southampton and he did it out of convenience, there is no doubt about that. One's Genius is often bound to Achievement/Success in our Society. But LeTissier was never meant to have big Success with Southampton. I am sure he knew that. Success, Fame, Money and Tax Fraud in the Millions is not what everybody is craving fore. One can like such a behavior ore not.I know he was lazy, probably one of the laziest Players ever, but laziness can't cover a brilliant mind. On the contrary they often go Hand in Hand. So what I do is to measure Skills, Abilities, Assets ore Genius if you like not by the Success it produces, but by the Quantity of itself. So, if Matic leaves fore United .. II will not play Lenard Cohen (Had no Idea who that was, had to google him) and I don't listen much to Canadian Music anyway. I will not drink Barleyjuice ore even be upset about the Transfer itself, because I can't do anything about it anyway. But I might be a little bit upset about the Stupidity of anyone at the Club who advocated his transfer.
  26. Virgil Van Dijk

    He didn't have to improve massively from his Celtic days he's was really good then. The fee has gone up significantly because he is doing the exact same thing in a much stronger league. Laporte isn't a boss he's what we have in Christensen. Virgil is a stopper who is good on the ball.
