  1. Tiemoué Bakayoko

    No, not 100% sure. It could be he has 2 years then, but he def rejected an extension. 2 years may mean more expensive though right enough...
  2. Tiemoué Bakayoko

    There is no way will will pay (or have to pay) that much. He has 1 year left on his contract and has rejected an extension! 30m tops.
  3. Issa Diop

    I live in Toulouse and have seen him a lot this season. He is certainly a good prospect but pretty raw and nowhere near ready for first team action. He'd be behind basically all our centre-backs in the pecking order. I don't see him getting in ahead of even Zouma, Ake, Christensen. If we do buy it'll certainly be one for the future and another for the loan army... That said I don't see the need for a new CB unless it is an elite CB who will be first choice ahead of Cahill. We have all we need in terms of cover in that position.
  4. Chelsea 5-1 Sunderland

    The match itself is of little to no importance. Totally normal they show the Liverpool game as there's something riding on it, which neutrals could tune in for. Who would tune in for a dead rubber Chelsea-Sunderland? Probably not even Sunderland fans....
  5. Aymeric Laporte

    If I remember he was called up then got injured and had to pull out? Could be wrong though...
  6. Virgil Van Dijk

    Puel i imagine...
  7. Benjamin Mendy

    Yes please!!!
  8. Alvaro Morata

    3 goals...
  9. Jeremy Toljan

    Back-up/alternative to Moses? Alhough a wing-back with weaknesses listed as passing, crossing and tackling doesn't really fill me with confidence...
  10. Chelsea 1-2 Crystal Palace

    Hurry up, boring inernationals!!
  11. Tiemoué Bakayoko

    Yep sorry, missed the fact that Tolisso was in the squad initially! He is a great player too but personally I think Bakayoko has more potential. Tolisso has been (apparently) nailed on to go to Juve for a few seasons now and looks like it could happen in the summer.
  12. Tiemoué Bakayoko

    I think he is superior to Tolisso in his position. Or at least on par with more potential. He has been called up to the France national team ahead of Tolisso anyway. I haven't seen enough of Strootman since he came back to judge.
  13. Tiemoué Bakayoko

    I watch a lot of Monaco's games. Both are excellent but different. Fabinho is also good defensively (he's a converted right back and he was solid in that position). He is a better passer than Bakayoko but not so much of a dribbler. I honestly think that either would be good enough to fit into our team and seriously improve it. In my opinion the main reason we are going for Bakayoko is that his contract is running out, so he's more attainable and it makes more financial sense. I would be really happy with either, with a slight preference for Bakayoko in terms of the role he will play in breaking up play and carrying the ball out for quick counters etc.

    Nope, nearer to tee-mou-ay, the last e with the accent is not mute. it's pronounced ay.
  15. Tiemoué Bakayoko

    Yeah Glik is a very solid defender and scores regularly too. Not sure he'd come to be back-up at his age though...
