  1. Ethan Ampadu

    Looks like hes on his way to Sunderland on loan to join Clarke Slater. I know the lads very young and what we are like with our love of the loan system but I'm of the mind that SOME kids would benifit more being trained in house. Theres loads of chances that we could bring on these lads even at the Contes love of the 70 minute subbing. I like Ampadu and got hopes of him being good with us Im just not sure what our best ay to go with him is the loan route. But I felt the same about Happy and its a shame the way hes turning out.
  2. Edin Dzeko

    Still went tho mate which suprized me.
  3. Edin Dzeko

    I think we should add compared to their best. Lamps I thimk scored 8 his last season and helped Shitty (scoring against us ffs - sadness) with another 8 goals the next. Same with Drogs. Think he had 12/13 didn't he? Tho I was upset we brought him back cause I suspected he wouldn't be at his best But think he still had 8 ishhh? But I think our 30 rule is outdated. It should be purely on an individual basis. Top players now stay fit into their 30s and depending on them are as fit as ever. Soecially it seems defenders. Most top defenders round the world are 30+. So Id have no qualms of giving him 2/3 years. I dont watch European football as a rule but my eyes will be watching Inter v Roma tonight to see how/IF those 2 play!!
  4. 14. Tiemoue Bakayoko

    Must say that I did have hopes for Baks very early eason but it makes you wonder where we would be now with that spent on a B2B but they dont grow on trees so I hope we haven't stopped looking. I dont know what the answer is about Baks and Waterboy apart from selling them but I cant see that happening in a hurry. I'm not a hater of either of our WBs as they both have their moments and with an unknown budget in the summer window upgrading them is unsure. But with Edens future more than likely in Spain shortly his fees will have to help finance not only his replacement but others too. But lets build that Bridge when we get there.
  5. 14. Tiemoue Bakayoko

    TOTALLY. And we like building up from the back - alot of times passing to WBs. But I would happily donate my dangleys for a proper B2B CM. I know another Lamps would be hard to find but wouldn't that be perfect. We need creativity all over the pitch but you'r right. last season when Eden/Willi/Pedro was roaming all over wherever needed they couldn't be marked let alone 2 and 3 on him.But teams expected it at the end and formatted accordingly. Why Contes been so liquid in changing it thru the game. We could be right back on top ith 3/4 upgrades.
  6. 14. Tiemoue Bakayoko

    YES! But hes not right for a 343 tho dont you think? We beed someone there much more creative with Kante.I'm truly hoping Rossy will cut it.
  7. Edin Dzeko

    I'm not so sure it could only be 2 years of good football in him. The player I see in these Youtube hilights from this season he seens fast,strong and very passionate about playing/scoring/winning. I would't truly mind if he was a starter over Morata. Gives him something to work for. Or will he be paart of 352? Can he play RAM? He miht be a great target with Eden for Rossy? No matter really where he goes it can only be a plus for us. I'm still not having a party in my pants yet as theres no ink on the contract but I hope there will be.
  8. 14. Tiemoue Bakayoko

    Agree ith all you say but it just seems to me we dont give this time and patience to enough players. Theres some who get a couple of minutes here and there and not seen again. But we cant argue Baks has been diabolical some games yet out he trots the next game. I'm all for 2nd chances but not a believer in blind faith. Yes the past 2 games hes had odd moments but I'd upgrade him in a heartbeat.
  9. 15. Victor Moses

    His goal today was a purler. A top striker couldn't have taken it better.
  10. 10. Eden Hazard

    When Eden is in this playful jovial mood apart from him being mostly unplayable its infectious to the other players. He comes out and like you can tell right away hes up for the craic. But the sad thing is we dont see THAT Eden out enough..
  11. 1. Willy Caballero

    I'm on the fence about him. While hes not the reincarnation of Petre Cech and If he was of a similar standard and was a striker we would be more than happy I also dont see the vast difference of value or pay scale nether.
  12. 14. Tiemoue Bakayoko

    As said by some I dont see how peeps were impressed by him. Passes may have been decent but the vast majority were either sideways or backwards. And was against a very offencively weak team. I understand Contes need to try to get our moneys worth and bring him upto strength but I dont understand why he doesn't be similar with other players. The quicker we try to get Vidal in the better IMHO..
  13. Edin Dzeko

    Me too. Just read a report saying 'we have been linked with ridiculous strikers like Carroll,Crouch and Dzeko' I can normally see both sides in arguments but I dont see at all why hes added onto that list?
  14. Edin Dzeko

    IF theres going to be a problem with this signing I dont think it will be down to either of the clubs, I thinj it ill be down to Dzeko himself. 1. Hes feeling comfortable where he is. Hes thought of wll by club and supporters. 2. Him and Mrs only just bought a new house. Would they want to up sticks? But if hes an ambitious lad, which looking at the passion hes still got I think he is, then he might like a chance to prove himself in PL again. Lets keep em crossed guys cause I can hear the Crouch chamts no and it scares me!
  15. Arturo Vidal

    I see Manure are still in for Vidal! Maybe he might want to join up with his old mate Sanchez. And Manure are in need of help just as much as us from what the pundits were saying on Sky Sports. But apparently Sanchez has fixed all that now and wil be pushing Shitty and Mou is looking to win the CL. I really dislike Manure!
  16. The Conte Thread

    That really is all we can say about some decisions innit!
  17. The Conte Thread

    But he finished with a record of 67 wins, 20 draws and 22 losses in 109 matches. A win percentage of the third-highest in Premier League history, behind only Mou and Fergie.
  18. The Conte Thread

    Feel the same We have had some good Italians with us over time. But I'm at a total loss as to why Roman got shot of Carlo. I cant remmber owt being wrong apart from only 1 bit of silverware. He had a brillint record with us.
  19. The Conte Thread

    I like Conte. I bet hes a nice chap.
  20. The English Football Thread

    Poor old McCarthy eh. That is a awful break. He really hasn't had alot of luck s far as injuries go. And with Koeman recently trying to get shot of him with nobody coming forward for him hes going to be there for awhile to come Just look at it poor sod.
  21. Edin Dzeko

    Looking at the 2 games against us he certainly looks like he is enjoying his football. I doubt he would be on Moratas Xmas card list after the nutmeg left him standing. And that volley! What a cracker. But we played good at home too so what went wrong at theirs?
  22. Edin Dzeko

    Cheers mate I checked out all the YTs about the game. This made me titter
  23. Edin Dzeko

    Dzeko angry at Roma, felt forced to agree to Chelsea move 20 January at 13:30 As for Dzeko himself, the news of a potential return to the Premier League has upset him and his wife. Only three months ago, anticipating a long stay, the pair purchased a house in the Eternal City. Now, with the volume of rumors around him increasing, the reality that they may have to abruptly abandon their plans has strained his relationship with the Giallorossi.
  24. 22. Willian

    Maybe he looks so good again because all the others played bad??
  25. 8. Ross Barkley

    Yeah I cant see why he didn't get tim over Baks today. How comfortable do we need to bebefore we can experiment a little. Or is experimenting giving Musonda time over Bats? Can players be League cup tied? With Gooners having Mkhi and Aubam I would think vinegar tits will be wanting to play them.
