  1. Deadline Day!

    Idk. An XI of Courtois Azpi Zouma Terry Alonso Willian Luiz Kante Hazard Batman Costa Would be good business in my book. As for the panic about playing our youth as strikers if either get injured, a) we can modify our setup to either play Hazard as a false 9, play a lone striker up front. and b ) you people want all of the benefits of having youth play without any of the risks. Reality is you can't have both; if Conte had a senior striker on the bench there is no way we would ever play Solanke, and then he'd be bitched at for not playing him!
  2. Deadline Day!

    Could someone give me the lowdown on Marcos Alonso please? Can't say I'd heard of him before. If Luiz is coming back to hold in place of Kante, I'm all for it. Our defensive problems lie in midfield more than one might think.
  3. 30. David Luiz

    As a CB? Absolutely not As a DM, buy him!!!!
  4. The Conte Thread

    Is it a really, really bad omen that the first thing I thought of reading that sentence was 'Arsenal'?
  5. Mario Pašalić

    Not necessarily to be sold. He's got some promise as a holding midfielder; pity he was injured.
  6. The Conte Thread

    Surely he knows now that 4-4-2 is our best formation going forward. Sure, the wingers can be toyed with some more but that must be our base.
  7. Ricardo Carvalho

    oh, that's embarrassing. In fairness, I had to hold my laptop up to my ear to hear what they were saying, lol.
  8. Ricardo Carvalho

    "After you left Chelsea in 2010, your career went steeply downhill" How tasteless, I'm sure if his English was better he would have given some back for that.
  9. Kalidou Koulibaly

    £60 million for Kalidou fucking Koulibaly. This isn't solving a problem, this is sheer desperation. I suppose it's easy to spend money that's not yours. Insanity.

  11. Diego Costa

    Ran into the crowd like a fuckin man possessed. Love the geezer
  12. The Conte Thread

    They're formed from the same metal, it would never work - if we could play Costa and a clone of Costa together we still wouldn't do it. Batman supplements Costa in the same way Zoum Zoum (saw him in the box in the Shed on monday!) supplements JT.
  13. Kalidou Koulibaly

    Plan C is crossing our fingers and hoping Zouma will be alright
  14. Kenedy

    I reckon he's being sent on loan as an LB to sharpen his defensive skills. Wwe've done the same with Ake now it's clear he has more value in central midfield than at left back.
  15. Jake Clarke-Salter

    Anyone know if he and Tomori are off out on loan/sticking around?
  16. The Mourinho Thread

    Yes, I think they key is that I wish him to succeed *as long as* he doesn't out succeed us. He is Chelsea, and despite what those that don't like him say, he wasn't going to walk away. He would have got us out of this mess. Oh well, flogging a dead horse I think. I must have had this exact conversation a good 50 times around the time of that Sunderland match.
  17. John Stones

    Then what are you saying? Damned if you do, damned if you don't. I want Koulibaly, I do, but banishing JT will be a big mistake, he is not the problem.
  18. John Stones

    the whole football world was mocking City's defenders last season because they look awful when Kompany's not there; none of Otamendi or Mangala had any clue what they were doing and now I should sit here and congratulate them for wasting their money on a defender who was poor last season? What is the insistence on pissing away Roman's money needlessly? It's because you want to see quick results. Sit the fuck down and be patient. The same thing will happen if we banish JT from the team as what happened when Kompany got injured: Nobody had a clue what to do. You must have banished the memory of Cahill-Zouma from your memory because if you didn't you'd recall that the whole back line, including Azpilicueta, didn't have a fucking clue what they were doing. You need a leader, and JT's all we got.
  19. John Stones

    I don't think we can use Cahill and JT together, too slow. But JT and Zouma were good last season, he is still a good defender with a bit of speed next to him. Personally I would sell Cahill because we'd get some good money for him. But that's never gonna happen, so I won't dwell on it.
  20. John Stones

    So they have a disappointment, a gimp, a disappointment and and overrated Englishman for CBs? The converse side of the coin is that if we get that Koulibaly geezer we will have the best bunch of CBs in the league when Zouma's fit - JT, Zouma, KK, and Cahill (who is still not bad for a backup).
  21. The Mourinho Thread

    Wow. Don't get me wrong, I firmly disagreed with the decision to sack Mourinho, but what's done is done and I have to say it is nice not having to defend both him and the club after every press conference. I hope he's happy at United (and I think he's not), but now we have to relegate him to the past and move on as one club - despite the same people trying to recreate the same rift by slagging off John Terry and trying to pretend he's not the best CB we have. Cheering on another club is one (or, rather 5 or 6) steps too far.
  22. John Terry

    The last few posts in this thread makes me cringe. A slow RB, and 2 slow CBs is always going to be a mess. But if you have to pick one of the 3 Terry starts every time. When Happy is back (or indeed if we bring in Koulibaly) along with a little pace we'll look much better. I really hope Conte lets Aina grow into RB; I can't watch Ivanovic any longer.
  23. Nathaniel Chalobah

    Fabregas might tuck in behind the striker, like he does for Spain.
  24. Ola Aina

    You gotta trust em some time. The way I figure it, we might as well do it while we have no international football. Don't forget, he looks (at his worst) no worse than Ivanovic, and when Zouma returns the whole defence will look more stable. If we keep Kenedy knocking around then we can always rotate the two depending on the match situation.
  25. Ola Aina

    Just as I said last season, I am definitely in favour of throwing him in this season as opposed to buying elsewhere. None of the alternatives seem compelling. Azpilicueta is better on the left flank anyway. He's crap going forward on both sides.
