    Another stupid decision if we dont trigger the clause and sign Boga for this cheap.
  3. Chelsea's Transfer Targets

    Marina took the reigns as sporting director. Scott only scouts the pool of players and presents them. It all falls then on Marina to get a qualified staff to design how our team will look, the plans and everything. If we have underqualified scouts, that is responsibility of Marina aswell. Scout also only identifies and makes the first contact. Negotiations are done by other people, mostly by the sporting director. If Marina actualy does that, I dont know but its possible she doesnt because she probably has no knowledge of that whatsoever. I mean to this day i dont know how Marina or Woodward in United managed to keep their jobs when both teams spend shitload and we are in transitional period since 2010s.
  4. Odsonne Edouard

    No. Drogba was perhaps the best big game striker ever, but his scoring record in general wasnt that great at all. People just have wrong picture of him because he was that great in important games. In 8 seasons here, he only reached more than 20 goals in two seasons (20, 29). The rest were 10, 12, 8, 5, 11, 5. Being subbed or injured is all part of that prolificency. Aguero was injured and rotated too, but he managed to score above 20 goals in all but 1 season. That said Id pick Drogba any day, but him being a prolific is just not true. Id even argue that with those stats and if he wasnt that good in key games, he would be sold nowdays when people think strikers arent good enough if they dont score at least 20 goals per season.
  5. Chelsea's Transfer Targets

    No, she was not. The only one who had more responsibility in scouting after Emenalo left was Scott McLachlan. Many people don't have any idea who he is and only address Marina given she is the one holding up the kit with the new transfer.
  6. Chelsea's Transfer Targets

    Well someone has to do that and since she was responsible for most of that after Emenalo left, she is the one to praise/blame.
  7. 15. Kurt Zouma

    Never thought i'd have said this in August but Zouma should probably be starting every game for us until the end of the season. Purely because only two of our partnerships seem to work and both include Kurt (him with Rudi and him with Tomori).

    Barcelona want to sell Philippe Coutinho, but why doesn't any top club want him?

    They say it takes your friends and your enemies working together to hurt you. Your enemies to say stuff you wouldn't like, and your friends to tell you about it. 🙂 I'm not interested in Twitter or Instagram so comments made in those platforms would never darken my door... if it wasn't for those kind souls on here who collect them from there and put them here. That's how I came to read @blue_footy's tweet. As far as I know that's the only thing I've ever read from him but I'm out of patience with him already. 🙁🙁
  11. Chelsea's Transfer Targets

    Whom ever it was good on them.....we have a great chance before us to build another powerhouse Chels, it might take 1-2 years but if done astutely its doable.

    BREAKING: Trump tried to register to vote in Florida using an out-of-state address, according to Florida elections records. In other words, attempted voter fraud. President Trump tried to register to vote in Florida using an out-of-state address https://www.washingtonpost.com/lifestyle/style/president-trump-tried-to-register-to-vote-in-florida-using-an-out-of-state-address/2020/06/03/687d0014-a4f2-11ea-b473-04905b1af82b_story.html President Trump originally tried to register to vote in Florida while claiming his “legal residence” was in another part of the country — Washington, D.C. — according to Florida elections records. The September 2019 registration application listed Trump’s legal residence as 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. NW, the location of the White House. That created a potential problem for Trump: Florida law requires voters to be legal residents of the state. A month later, Trump resubmitted his application to use a Florida address and in March he voted by mail in Florida’s Republican primary. The revisions complicate Trump’s own record as a voter at a time when the president has made unsubstantiated claims of widespread fraud in mail-in balloting. Trump’s original voter-registration application, which was obtained by The Washington Post via a public records request, was filed during a time when the president was making a highly publicized move to change his permanent residence from his Manhattan penthouse to Mar-a-Lago, his private club in Palm Beach, Fla. The voter application is dated Sept. 27, 2019 — the same day that Trump made the domicile change. On one of his forms that day he was telling Florida officials that his “legal residence” was Washington, D.C., and on another he was saying he was a “bona fide resident” of Palm Beach. Florida voter-registration applicants are warned on registration forms that they may be subject to fines and even prison time if they do not provide truthful information. There has been at least one recent instance in Florida in which a public official faced legal consequences for registering to vote at an address that was not her legal residence. Last year, the city manager of Deltona, Fl., entered into an agreement with the local state’s attorney’s office to pay more than $5,000 in fees and reimbursements for the state’s investigation to avoid being prosecuted on criminal charges in a voter-registration case. She had registered to vote using the address of Deltona’s City Hall, rather than her home address, and had cast ballots in elections using that registration. In Palm Beach, where Trump has registered to vote, there was a high-profile arrest in 1993 of a popular restaurateur who was charged with voter fraud and briefly jailed because he registered to vote in Palm Beach but lived in the neighboring city of West Palm Beach. A felony charge in the case was eventually dropped. A month passed before Trump filed the second voter registration application, this time listing 1100 S. Ocean Blvd., Palm Beach — the address of Mar-a-Lago — as his legal residence. There also was another difference: Trump’s original voter-registration directed election officials to send his registration materials to Mar-a-Lago in care of another person — Sean McCabe, a vice president and general manager of Trump Florida Properties in the neighboring city of West Palm Beach. (McCabe’s first name — Shawn — is misspelled.) snip

    Kim Kardashian to pay medical bills of protester left horrifically disfigured after being shot Kim Kardashian offers to pay medical bills of protester left horrifically disfigured after being shot with a rubber bullet by police https://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-8378035/Kim-Kardashian-offers-pay-medical-bills-protester-left-horrifically-disfigured.html?ns_mchannel=rss&ns_campaign=1490&ito=1490 Kim Kardashian has generously offered to help a protester who was seriously injured by a rubber bullet over the weekend. The 39-year-old reality star was shocked to see a trending photo on Twitter showing a woman who was shot while standing in the street filming during a George Floyd protest in Louisville, Kentucky. The graphic image shows a young woman with a chunk of flesh missing from her forehead and her left eye bruised and swollen shut. https://www.instagram.com/shannynsharyse/ https://www.instagram.com/p/CA4yhwOnxRj/ I hope that pig copper who did this to her ends up on a fucking spit

Batshuayi has never managed to command a first team place in Chelsea's squad, only making 77 appearances for them in the four seasons since he signed, many of those from the bench. He hasn't yet convinced a loan club on his performances to the point of securing a move – Valencia even cutting his spell short after three goals in 23 games – but will be available cheaper than ever this summer.
  18. Chelsea's Transfer Targets

    And I'm losing patience with people who rush to make judgements when they have few facts, if any. If it's true that the club refused to pursue a deal for Frasier, then it's about why they did that. If you don't know why then you can't form an opinion. At least not one that people should take seriously.
  19. Chelsea's Transfer Targets

    Ryan Fraser? Jeez.....come now Frank you know the Chels level mate.
  20. Chelsea's Transfer Targets

    Ryan Fraser has Mourinho/Tottenham written all over him. Mediocre player but will run through walls for the manager. Just the sort of "warrior" Mou loves and just the kind of cheap ass deal Levy looks for. Completely below the level we should be after.
  21. Politics & Stuff

    401K is less of a perk if the rest of the economy is so shit companies are no longer offering matching.
  22. Chelsea's Transfer Targets

    I agree. For me the manager should indicate the "type" of player he needs, and the Club take care of the "name" based on the best price-quality ratio.
  23. Chelsea's Transfer Targets

    If true, another reason why giving all transfer power solely to the manager is a mistake.
  24. Kai Havertz

    Ziyech as RW shouldn't matter if Reece James is there providing the width. With Pulisic, Havertz, and Ziyech playing behind, I reckon even I would get 15+ goals a season with the amount of chances that will be created.
  25. Federico Chiesa

    Ask 70m €, in my opinion too much. Excellent player, but too selfish and not very good at scoring
