    Calciomercato is hardly a reliable source...

    Conte wants Morata to replace Hazard https://www.sportskeeda.com/football/chelsea-transfer-news-round-up-conte-names-hazards-replacement-zouma-ready-walk-away
  4. General Transfer Talk

    Yes the pressure thats now going to be on those shoulders is going to be either a great burden or he might thrive on it and try to be everything hes being hyped up to be. Look at the hype and pressure we put onto RLCs shoulders. Far too much, far too soon. Its not done him, the team or the academy any good at all. Maybe its time to take a good look at our academy. Even tho we seem to do very well in comps and their leagues our lads dont seem to attrarct much attention in either the PL or Europe and I find that strange. So is it that the teams put together are better than the individiak players?
  5. Tiemoué Bakayoko

    Not really comparable as Willian was already a finished product when he joined us and in comparison to Oscar he already proved in european competitions that he is good enough to compete before joining us.

    Yes I noticed that statement in the commentary on the video. Thing is, the top teams scout everybody. Anybody that comes to any kind of prominence will be assessed sooner or later by the army of scouts working for the big teams. In other words, that oft repeated phrase, "a lot of big teams are watching him", doesn't mean as much as those saying it hope we'll think it does. Edit: Notice the number of times Gilmour hangs on to the ball for 5 seconds or more, twists and turns a few times, then passes it backwards. Fair enough, if that's the best parts available, then it's the right pass but,remember, these are the involvements which the person putting the video together felt was the best of young Billy. His game does not seem to me to be ready to have a spotlight shone on it. Whoever put the video up should do the lad a favour and take it down again. Give the kid a chance to make himself the best player he can possibly be. Good luck to the lad.
  9. Alvaro Morata

    It's looking that way so far I think real will play hard ball over morata cause we won't sell them hazard or courtios
  10. Alvaro Morata

    Well of course so would I. I'd have multiple orgasms over a Eden - Diego/Lukaku - Sanchez top 3 but by all Ive seen/read etc Conte has his sights on Morata. Next thing that will happen are rumblings of a swap deal with Bats + cash for Lukaku. Good for us.
  11. Alvaro Morata

    I rather sign Sanchez or B. Sliva than put morata on RW position a front line of Hazard lukaku Sanchez could be good trio Sanchez and lukaku have been smoking hot this season with their current clubs
  12. Tiemoué Bakayoko

    This will just be another Willian/Oscar type of signing. An average player who won't really get us anywhere and will be a regular in the team for a long time.
  13. 10. Eden Hazard

    Not sure when Zidane's contract ends but even if it's not 2018, he could be sacked at anytime anyway, which I'm sure Hazard is mindful of.
  14. 10. Eden Hazard

    I'm in total agreement that Eden wont be going anywhere. I dont think hes unhappy here, we wont accept any offers for him and I think he would be looking forward to seeing what we could do in Europe all together. I'm not even sure he would be interested in RM in 2018. I dont know if its the playing at RM that interests him or playing under Zidane. And Zidanes contract finishes next summer doesn't it?
  15. General Transfer Talk

    He does seem to have been scouted by a few teams.
  16. General Transfer Talk

    Nothing special there at all. No special touch, no exceptional balance, no outstanding body control, not even any particular pace. Just a fairly ordinary lad getting away with some awkward looking moves because of the level he is playing at. If people want to see lads exhibiting genuinely exceptional talent at youth level they should check out Phil Fallon or Brahim Diaz at Man City. People would also see many better players than Gilmour if they watched our youth team.
  17. 10. Eden Hazard

    He'd rightly be considered the king of English football if he played for Utd, wore the #7 jersey and won the trophies he's won with Chelsea. What an addition he turned out to be. Sure, he was a huge talent when he arrived, but only a select few fulfill their promise. Absolutely in love with him and will probably end up as my absolute favourite Chelsea player. The uncanny awareness, the gentle touches, the dazzling turns, the incredible balance and body control, the superbly timed bursts, the elegant way he glides past players, the impressive way he rides challenges, the hilarious way he embarrasses anyone who tries to stop him and his innate knack for the spectacular in terms of tricks, flicks, feints, goals and assists. Might buy his shirt next season (never buy shirts). Nice sentimental momento.
  18. 10. Eden Hazard

    Not sure how many have seen this but it could be a key reason why Hazard is likely to stay. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/football/2017/03/24/chelsea-reward-eden-hazard-new-contract-real-madrid-renew-interest/ Not ruling it out 100% but his family are pretty settled in London and as long as we spend wisely to stay competitive at the highest level, I see no reason why he would want to leave. Could be part of something really special under Conte.
  19. 10. Eden Hazard

    It's Marca and their Real Madrid agenda. Why should we believe them at all when they always come out with BS? Marina Granovskaia is not known for making such promises and there's been no hint whatsoever from the English or even Belgian media over the past few months that such agreement took place and suddenly Marca just came up with it? It's just the typical BS from the Spanish press.
  20. 10. Eden Hazard

    So that about Granovskaia doesn't strike you as sounding like summet she would do to keep him on for an extra year so they could work n him in the meantime? Sounds like what a saleswoman would come out with to me.
  21. 10. Eden Hazard

    Truth? They quoted from MARCA for goodness sake!
  22. Tiemoué Bakayoko

    Well the guardian has it on the football transfer rumour as well. But we need to wait to have more confirmation to see if this is true: Apparently they have agreed a deal to take Tiemoué Bakayoko from the club for £35m, and what’s more have concluded negotiations with the player’s representatives over a five-year contract, and all that remains is for contracts to be signed and press conferences to be called. https://www.theguardian.com/football/2017/mar/27/football-transfer-rumour-mill-alvaro-morata-tiemoue-bakayoko-chelsea
  23. 19. Diego Costa

    I don't know why players talk to media cause they always put a stir in
  24. Alvaro Morata

    Its known Im not big fan of real madrid bench players or ex players (James, Isco, Ozil etc), but whoever says Morata isnt good enough never saw him. Just because he is striker and doesnt score much doesnt mean he is not top player. He would fit very well next to Costa. He is good with the ball, good passer and great worker. Quick too. Never failed to impress in big games at juve. The price is huge tho and if we sign Morata, maybe that means no Sanchez/Bernardo but as long he is not replacement for Costa, but addition, I would not complain. If we plan on having Morata as Costa direct replacement, then Morata will have to improve massively in finishing. He is not lone striker, but next to someone, he is perfect.
  25. 10. Eden Hazard

    I'm sure none of us WANT him to go but it would be better if the clb know his plans now so we can plan ahead. Thats when I wouldnt mind us buying Neymar lol My question has always been would Eden want to goto RM with Zidane only having 1 year left of his contract? Is it RM that attracts Eden OR is it Zidane he wants to play for??
  26. 10. Eden Hazard

    Only if he pushes it. If he doesn't really say much, then don't sell.
