  1. 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.
  2. 9. 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.
  3. Mason Mount

    Trent Alexander-Arnold has had his breakthrough season at Liverpool and he never even went out on loan once!
  4. 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.
  5. Chelsea 1-0 Liverpool

    Either of them would be better.
  6. 4. 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.
  7. Chelsea 1-0 Liverpool

    No way should Cesc be kept around for next season, Absolutely useless.
  8. Anthony Martial

    Would love to see Martial at Chelsea.
  9. Chelsea Kits 2018/19

    Am I the only one who thinks that its a decent design?
  10. 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.
  11. 9. 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.
  12. Who will be the next Chelsea 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.
  13. 8. Ross Barkley

    Where the hell is this guy?
  14. Chelsea 1-1 Barcelona

    Ter Stegan Roberto-Pique-Umtiti-Alba Sergio Paulinho Rakitic Iniesta Messi-Suarez
  15. Chelsea 4-0 Hull

    After watching Spurs thoroughly outplay Juve at their own patch, I started to give myself hope that anything is possible but then I remembered that we will have Bakayoko, Cahill, Alonso and Moses in our lineup most probably and then my new found hope faded away.
  16. Chelsea 4-0 Hull

    Drinks has hardly featured this season, do you really think Conte will start him against Barca? Cesc will obviously start but only alongside Kante and Baka. Barkley, Ampadu, Luiz won't feature against Barca if we don't have any emergency situations mate and you know that.
  17. Chelsea 4-0 Hull

    But mate I'm pretty sure Baka will start against Barca because we don't have any other option. We won't play with a two man midfield so it will most likely be Cesc-Kante-Baka, yikes. Conte does not rate Drinkwater (surprise surprise! Well done Emenalo) so Baka it will have to be.
  18. The Conte Thread

  19. Arturo Vidal

    That's because he was signed in January mate.
  20. 28. César Azpilicueta

    Oh my god Prince Azpi
  21. Arturo Vidal

    Will we really break our one year contract policy for Vidal? I can't see it tbh.
  22. Arturo Vidal

    Can't see the board paying money for a 31 year old who will command big wages and a minimum three year contract.
  23. 28. César Azpilicueta

    Those two interceptions
  24. 10. Eden Hazard

    I'd argue a fair few of his cutbacks are more like the ones Willian skied over from 7 yards against Roma rather than the ones where it will take an absolute screamer to score.
  25. 10. Eden Hazard

    He may not register a great many assists but he creates openings a plenty.
