  1. Lucas Moura

    Ridiculously talented headless chicken. That said, I'm sure Conte would turn him into a better player. Given specific instructions on how to play, his awful decision making would no longer be an issue. This is also the reason I wanted the Ox.
  2. Chelsea 1-0 Man Utd

    It's a Mourinho game. Yes we're dominating but it doesn't matter as long as we don't score. They'll probably get 1-2 chances and if they bury them before we score we will be in big trouble.
  3. Mesut Özil

    United is his likeliest destination. He has been linked with them for a while, and now Jose is their manager. He said himself he thinks he's the best coach he ever had. As for him coming here. The only player who does not work a lot off the ball is Hazard so unless he's replacing him or Conte is no longer the coach the club will not consider him.
  4. The Conte Thread

    I think he was too pragmatic. Today he should have taken more risks. To play Azpi at RWB rather than Zappa, also Willian over Michy. Heck I think even Kenedy should have been in contention for a place. The moment Morata was pulled off, he needed to bring in Michy(real 9) or switch to 2 midfielders.
  5. Chelsea 0-1 Man City

    I must say I always feel safer when Azpi plays in the back 3. I would have prefered if he started Zappa and benched Cahill.
  6. 9. Álvaro Morata

    He loves the champions league. Now obviously he was always going to look better in european competitions than in the league. It's more similar to what he's used to be playing. But he always showed up for this competition wether it was for Juve or Real.
  7. Diego Costa

    That's not Conte. It's someone from the coaching staff. or I'm I missing something?
  8. Chelsea 0-0 Arsenal

    Their pressing hurt us a lot. Cahill should never be playing this game. Either sub Pedro for Bakayoko or ask the team to stay low and play on the counter.
  9. Benjamin Mendy

    Nothing story, really. Monaco wanted him to stay but he's a fan of Guardiola. What he meant with that quote is that he can resist the temptation of joining Chelsea to please Monaco but not Guardiola. He's a big premier league fan as well. I actually think the quote could suggest he likes us.
  10. Spurs more attractive.....

    We never had an agreement with Swansea. Ox wanted to play as a midfielder and he rejected us knowing he wouldn't be a starter in that position here. Barkley probably felt the same, that he would only come here to be a squad player at best. If anything this is flattery. Those players think so highly of us that they swallow their pride and realize they're not good enough for us then turn to other teams (Liverpool,Tottenham). Over the years and probably for more to come, we attracted top players. Even in this window someone like Sandro was willing to come here and leave a champions league finalist. The truth is, we lost transfer targets because of our unwillingness to pay the demanded fees. We would rather negotiate and waste time until eventually another team comes and splashes the cash.
  11. 9. Álvaro Morata

    Ramos' cross was inch-perfect. You could tell he used to be a right back. Spain is so stacked man, they have talented players in every position. Oh and I'm glad Alvaro is alright. I was a bit scared after the contact with Spinazzola.
  12. Deadline Day!

    I don't care at all about Barkley but how we missed on an old player of Conte we've been trying to sign for a while now is beyond me and to Tottenham of all teams. They have Kane, Son and Janssen as strikers. We only have Morata and Michy and they still beat us to him. Janssen is currently playing vs France so I'm not sure how he would move.
  13. Deadline Day!

    Why not Ricardo Pereira? He can cover both WB positions and he's known quality especially in attack.
  14. Deadline Day!

    It needs to be said though. The inability of the club to sign second tier players is quite shocking. Failing to sign Sandro is one thing but Llorente, lol.
  15. Deadline Day!

    l'equipe reported that we made contacts for Aurier yesterday, but PSG had an agreement with Spurs not to negotiate with any other club. That's the first time I hear of something like that. Why would you refuse to negotiate with other clubs when it's still possible to get a higher fee? Only explanation I can come up with is that PSG want to get on the good side of Tottenham if they ever need to get involved in a transfer with them in the future.
