  1. Álvaro Morata

    TBF he played really well yesterday. Held the ball well, linked up nicely and made some good passes. The only thing missing was a goal.
  2. Willian

    Don't think its legit.
  3. Aleksandr Golovin

    What's the deal with this guy? There has been no news about him for quite some time now.
  4. Thibaut Courtois

    Even though the CBs of Belgium were fantastic against Brazil, the real star at the back was no doubt Courtois. Haven't seen this Courtois for a while now for Chelsea.
  5. Eden Hazard

    Nearly untouchable tonight. Had a bit of wobble during the middle stages of the second half and towards the end there was no getting the ball off him without hearing the ref's whistle.
  6. Next Manager?

    Absolutely! Ever since Marina has been tasked with handling transfer negotiations, every single transfer feels like a saga and the worst part is that we always come out on the losing side. Strictly speaking in terms of player acquisition of course.
  7. Next Manager?

    The torture is real my friend.
  8. Aleksandr Golovin

    Tbh I'd sell Cesc without any hesitation this summer while we can still get some money for him. We all know that Cesc's legs have been gone since 2015 but more recently I feel that his biggest asset which is his passing has also gone down the drain. Sure he may give the occasional wonderful throughball but he doesn't inspire confidence on the ball anymore the way he used to. So I'd sell Cesc and replace him with Seri. This will leave our midfield options for next season as Kante, Seri, Golovin, Barkley, RLC and Baka which is more than adequate for league plus the vigours of Europa league. Goes without saying that Drinkwater should also be sold.
  9. Álvaro Morata

    The way the board has been acting for the past few summers, do you really think challenging for the league is an objective anymore? Doesn't seem that way to me.
  10. Eden Hazard

    Can't read it... Is there anyway you could paste the text over here please?
  11. Daniele Rugani

    I'm afraid that a pairing of Christensen and Rugani might struggle against the more physical forwards as both players are essentially of the same kind with very similar strengths and weaknesses.
  12. 12. Ruben Loftus-Cheek

    And probably for us next season too especially if we don't add midfield reinforcements during the summer.
  13. Next Manager?

    Hazard in midfield would leave us quite unbalanced I would say. Let me propose this Courtois Azpi-Christensen-Rudiger-Emerson Kante-Diawara/Meyer/Jorginho-Barkley Fekir-Icardi-Hazard
  14. Nabil Fekir

    While I absolutely love Fekir as a player, I don't think he fits into our side. He'd fit into our current 3-4-3 or 3-5-2 (albeit at the expense of Eden) like a glove but the thing is that can't see us continuing with a 3 man backline next season. The kind of names we are linked with seldom play with a 3 at the back formation which leaves us with the standard 4-3-3 formation deployed by Sarri or the 4-4-2 or 4-2-3-1 deployed by Jardim. Don't personally think we will hire Enrique thankfully. So in a 4-3-3, Fekir will have a hard time fitting in as he is a classic second striker/ No#10. You could argue that he can be played in a midfield three but I don't think that gets the best out of him. In a 4-4-2 or 4-2-3-1, Fekir will be in direct competition with Eden unless Eden goes back to the left wing which I don't think he should as he seems to have lost a burst of acceleration which made him so deadly on the wing. Maybe the No#10/second striker role is the future for Eden. Due to this, I think Fekir might create a headache for our next manager if we sign him (which we are never going to lol) as he is nowhere near as effective on the wing or in midfield. I propose that we go after Thauvin, Yeah I know he flopped at Newcastle but he has arguably been the second or third best player in the French league this season and is a winger very much in the Robben mold with good workrate. He brings the kind of stuff our team has been missing lately.
  15. Álvaro Morata

    Icardi has a nice little 97m release clause in his contract. He has got that killer mentality in spades as well whilst not being technically as good as Alvaro.
  16. 19. Mason Mount

    Trent Alexander-Arnold has had his breakthrough season at Liverpool and he never even went out on loan once!
  17. Nabil Fekir

    So Chelsea once again came to the party too late apparently, this has become the theme of our transfer business under Marina along with signing Everton level players. Anyway, another great signing for Liverpool if reports are to be believed. Fekir is an immense player.
  18. Cesc Fàbregas

    His passing is not even better than Kante's these days and the only reason he wants to stay at Chelsea is because his family is settled in London and he does not want to go through the hassle of relocating. His performances have been below par for far too long and no way does he deserve to be kept around for next season. Sell him while he still has got some value left because his legs are fast forgetting the skills they possessed.
  19. Anthony Martial

    Would love to see Martial at Chelsea.
  20. Chelsea Kits thread

    Am I the only one who thinks that its a decent design?
  21. 19. Mason Mount

    Don't you think with the Europa league to deal with next season, keeping players like Mount, CHO, Ampadu, Tomori would be much beneficial as compared to loaning them out as they would most probably get regular playing time not only in the EL but also Carabao cup and FA cup and if some of these youngsters impress in these cup games, who knows they might even get cameos in the league. I think the EL league next season is our best opportunity to blood in some of our youngsters. Hopefully in time, Mount can replace the waning Cesc in our squad.
  22. Álvaro Morata

    In no way should Morata be sold but Baka? Trade him for a pack of crisps. Salah and KDB were always seen as high potential players who never got a chance at this club. Baka has been given a lot of chances and he has shown absolutely nothing to suggest that he could be worth anything more to this club than a mere squad player. I'd happily ship him off this summer. Ironic that we sold player like KDB so soon but now don't want to repeat that mistake so we're willing to hold onto a player with zero technique like Baka As long as we sign somebody like Ndombele or Seri, I couldn't care less whether Baka stays or goes.
  23. Next Manager?

    I'd love for us to get in Leonardo Jardim if Conte does indeed leave. Jardim's record with youth coupled with the fact that he already is used to working with a restrictive budget all the while promoting from within and developing players makes him a very logical option for me. His teams generally are very entertaining as well so there is that plus he has won trophies too which gives him the edge over someone like Sarri.
  24. 8. Ross Barkley

    Where the hell is this guy?
