    Heard that Perez don't want Hazard. Zidane who begging for him. If even this is true (happened before CL final), with Zidane leaving, this is become non-story. Unless Lopetegui badly want him suddenly, don't think they will push for Hazard this summer. Well, think they will go for Kane or Salah instead though.

    I don't know much about him apart from hes not having alot of play time at RM and hes supposed;y wanting out. He'is linked with Shitty and Spuds right now He doesn't seem to do alot in the assists/goals department but is that to do with lack of playing time? How does he compare to Seri and more importantly how would he be as the wee baldy mans partner in crime?

  12. 10. Eden Hazard

    Eden Hazard Real Madrid revelation 07:00: Real Madrid were offered the chance to sign Chelsea star Eden Hazard before the Champions League final, according to reports in Spain. Hazard has been a long-term target for Real Madrid and been linked with a move to the Bernabeu over the past few summers. After a disappointing campaign in which the Blues finished outside the top four, Hazard supposedly urged the club to make high-profile signings. Real have always coveted Hazard and Zinedine Zidane was an admirer before he resigned from the Bernabeu giants last month. And now according to Spanish paper Marca, Eden’s father, Thierry, tried to offer his son to Real BEFORE the Champions League final in Kiev. It is said that Eden’s father informed Real that his son was available to sign and told them he wouldn’t be signing a new contract with the west London outfit. https://www.express.co.uk/sport/football/979039/Transfer-News-Live-Updates-Man-Utd-Chelsea-Barcelona-Liverpool-Arsenal-Real-Madrid-Latest
  13. Next Manager?

    Good lad!! Not a Jacko is he??
  14. Ruben Loftus-Cheek

    If we start the season with the same midfielders i can see Sarri playing a two man midfield which would likely be Drinkwater and Kante, something which will restrict RLC more, barring Mason returning and hitting the group running we just don't currently have enough quality for a 3 man midfield. Yeah i agee with the point re Sarri's coaching it's the one big ray of hope im clinging onto, but that will likely mean he's a squad player until if or when Sarri works his magic and early noises suggest he won't accept that, although that said if Sarri outlines a serious plan for him he might reconsider. Is he being pushed ahead of Alli? If true i couldn't disagree more, Alli is streets ahead tactically in my opinion, his understanding of space is insane. Mount is 50/50, i genuinely believe he could stake a claim next season but alternatively if a footballing side like Fulham or to an extent Newcastle (love or hate Rafa but he's good at giving already good players a further push to the next level Alonso, Mascherano and Torres prime examples although they were a few years older) that would be equally tempting.

    No 10 is considered to be luxury player in modern football, unless he is one of your best player it is hard to justify playing a no 10.

  20. Ruben Loftus-Cheek

    What we need in MF is somebody who can lesser the burden on Kante in terms of defensive output and offer something going forward or mask Cesc's deficiencies in the physical aspect (in a 3 man MF with Kante and another more rounded solid player I think Cesc will potentially be a vital player if Sarri comes in, how many players are better with the ball than him in the squad - sure last season was poor but the season before hand he struggled then got into the team and was excellent - ?). I think Ruben will be a sub more than not if he stays here next season, I think hes a number 10, he has to play off the front, in advanced positions, where he can have an impact on the match and even then he needs to increase his output in terms of key passes and shots which ultimately lead to goals and assists. He is too laid back, he'll be a squad player here if he keeps going this way in my eyes, I think he has the right attributes perhaps to come off the bench and break down a team as a player off the front but don't think he's going to waltz into the team next season like some people tend to think. He can carry the ball from deeper positions too but I don't think that what he wants to be doing, he wants to be playing higher up the pitch although like previously mentioned between Mourinho, Conte, Hodgson and Southgate he has played as a DM, CF, RW/LW and a CM, there is no clear indication of where hes best.
  21. 1. Willy Caballero

    I think its an impossible task for him to be able to shoehorn every world class player into his team because they have always needed balance due to the overwhelming amount of top class attacking players they have. I agree that Banega should start for Argentina in MF, they have nobody who can play quick passes from deep in between the lines for the likes of Messi, Di Maria, Aguero to be in mode advanced positions. Messi is excellent at dropping deep to do this for Barcelona but the movement is pretty dire in comparison as well, plus the deeper you have him the less of an influence he has on the attacking play in my eyes, hes one of the best I've ever seen for playing little one two combinations around the box to get into goal scoring positions. I think not taking Icardi is one of the strangest decisions I've ever seen in a world cup squad selection, considering he has more to offer than Higuain for example, who although he is extremely clinical in most games, lacks some of the attributes Icardi has. There is an over reliance on Messi though, when he has the ball they all seem to stand and watch, there is no clear structure and the other players like Di Maria, Dybala, Aguero are more than capable of being built around as well to give them some variation in their play. Also their defence and keeper, lets be fair, extremely limited and perhaps need extra protection. Its a shame about the rumours regarding the whole bust up in the camp if they are true because Sampaoli is a pretty innovative coach who was incredibly well thought of by many teams in Europe, considering how well he done with Chile and also a very good season with Sevilla before taking the Argentina job.
  22. Next Manager?

    No, he didn't. He was specifically asked about Chelsea and I quote original question that he responded to "What can Chelsea fans expect if Sarri becomes their manager?". So, again, he "confirmed" absolutely nothing, just answered a leading question about likely situation. Don't be so naive.
  23. Kalidou Koulibaly

    I can't see use getting any napoli players this season cause napoli owner is a tosser
  24. Ruben Loftus-Cheek

    I can't argue that there are question marks regarding his potential fit into a Sarri-style system but with the exception of Kante, I would say the same about all the rest of our current crop of midfielders. What I keep reading however is the quality of Sarri's coaching and he'll work with what he's given and make it work. Koulibaly was apparently a prime example, somebody who wasn't comfortable on the ball and didn't look good enough and look at him now. I'd love to see a positive coach get hold of him and make him believe the hype and make him realise just how good he can become. I just find it amazing that RLC is being pushed for England to start ahead of Alli who is one of Spurs most important players, and is playing in the England team alongside players who are regular starters in the Liverpool, City, United and Spurs teams. Yet he's a struggle to get a look in out squad, let alone the first XI. And on top of that you look at Fabregas, Bakayoko, Drinkwater and Barkley who have been chosen ahead of RLC for Chelsea, all of which failed to make their respective country's World Cup squads. With regards to Mount, I feel Chelsea will consider him perhaps a year behind RLC and want to see him play at a higher level for one more year. In an ideal world though, who's to say we can't have Mount and RLC within our squad ranks in the future? In a group of 5-6 midfielders, there should be sufficient space for both. With the aim to become self-sufficient alongside the stadium issues, it's even more important to spend money wisely on our squad. Promoting the likes of Christensen, Mount and RLC into the squad ranks will hopefully reduce the needs in the future to buy players like Drinkwater, giving us more leeway in our budget to compete for the top end group of players. It needs a whole culture shift to be honest. Christensen I am hoping is the start of something far larger.

    Maurizio Sarri to SLEEP at Chelsea training ground when he takes over from Antonio Conte this week https://www.mirror.co.uk/sport/football/news/maurizio-sarri-sleep-chelsea-training-12784171 Where does the media get this crap from 😂😂😂😂😂
  26. Group G - Belgium, Tunisia, Panama, England

    Being in a ridiculously weak greoup will make it difficult to really see where Belgium and England stand until the single elimination phase (aka World Cup) begins. Yes, they will play each other but for very little. both teams are doing well against weak opposition, but WC is really about how you do against stronger opposition. It usually boils down to defense... very difficult to win WC games when you concede as often there isn’t enough time to turn it around when a big team sit back and defends. BTW, did not think England defended particularly well considering the opposition.
