  1. 21. Nemanja Matic

    With Baka coming in, selling Matic for £40m and replacing him with a player like Badelj (a player Chelsea was linked with in the winter window) for close to half that price would be a smart move. Even better would be bringing in a player like Naby Keita, Rabiot or Nainggolan as Matic departs for the north. But I agree with those saying selling him without bringing in a replacement would be a case self-inflicted damage. Man Utd signing Matic instead of Fabinho would cause me to breathe a huge sigh of relief and laugh my bum off afterwards. Lindelof and possibly Matic and Morata aren't signings that will change the landscape. Especially if Chels manage to land Bakayoko, Lukaku, Sandro and Van Dijk (and a Matic replacement). Only City could go on to top a summer like that but Chelsea possess the superior foundation.
  2. General Transfer Talk

    Courtois Azpilicueta - Cahill - Luiz - Sandro Willian - Kanté - Bakayoko - Hazard Lukaku - Lacazette Caballero/Eduardo Moses - Christensen - Aké - Alonso Mahrez - Fabregas/Chalobah - Matic - Baker Batshuayi - Pedro Now that's a well-balanced team. Manageable as well outside of the tough Sandro deal. Even with Alonso in that LB spot (Bertrand in for competition?), that's still a good team. (Hazard up top and Lemar on the flank would be brilliant as well.)
  3. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang

    I like Aubameyang. He's evolved into a ruthless goal-scorer for club and country in the past few years. And that's against any kind of opponent. Rarely goes three games without scoring. He's one of the elite goal-scorers in European football. From 41 goals in 94 games in his first two seasons for Dortmund (and those are figures that would be praised by Chelsea fans) to 79 goals in 95 games in his last two seasons Great age, great fitness record. The man is in his prime. Likeable and popular as well. Get him, Chelsea.
  4. General Transfer Talk

    City aren't nearly as crazy as some make them out to be. It would actually make sense. Sané, Sterling, Bernardo Silva and Jesus are talented young players (don't think Iheanacho has a future there) but they won't win you the war. There's no guarantee they will perform at the required level and they could even harm City if they were to suffer a dip in form, which is natural at their stage of development. And waiting for them to become star players could take years. Sanchez is established so you can expect him to deal with the pressure and produce the goods. He would add a high level of firepower the current options on the flanks can't provide. If City sign Sanchez, it's simply because they want to join the elite. I can't fault them for such ambitions at all. Aguero/Jesus Sanchez - Silva/Bernardo - De Bruyne/Gundogan - Sané/Sterling They need to strengthen their defence of course. Most likely a new holding midfielder as well. They've been linked with Van Dijk, Walker, Mendy and Fabinho. It looks like they mean business.
  5. Romelu Lukaku

    Mehh... But maybe Chels can't do better.
  6. 19. Diego Costa

    Surely, Chelsea and Atletico could make a deal which would involve Griezmann joining Chelsea and Diego going the other way. That way Atleti don't lose their main source of goals without a proper replacement. A former fan favourite who dreams of returning as well. Simply ideal. 60-80 mil for Griezmann, 30-50 for Costa. Question is if Griezmann would want to join. I don't mind Costa staying though. But there's no way Chels can go another season playing Costa every game. Either Michy plays a larger part next season, a new striker joins or a wide forward capable of playing in the middle is purchased.
  7. Ivan Perisic

    I love the idea of Perisic as a wingback. Think he could be revelation in that position like Moses, but better. Are those figures a joke though? I can't believe €35 mil is a mere opening offer. 35 mil is big money for a 28-year-old wide man who's never made a big impact at top level. PL clubs are in trouble. It looks like the new TV money has almost doubled the prices for English clubs.
  8. 10. Eden Hazard

    Hazard is lowkey one of the best 'beautiful goals scorers' around. Just needs to learn to score more ugly goals regulalrly to score 20+ goals on the regular. Anyone notice he's better at putting his foot through the ball with his left than with his right? His leftie power shots are a problem.
  9. General Transfer Talk

    City signing Walker and Fabinho would burn like hell, not gonna lie. Please, please, please, hijack those transfers, Chels. Winning the league should hold weight, damnit.
  10. General Transfer Talk

    Imagine Utd and City turning into Barcelona and Real. Can't happen.
  11. Bernardo Silva

    Great talent. Potential superstar. One of the possible attacking options to strengthen Chels for me so slightly annoyed he's not joining but that's football. I'm surprised they're making these kinds of signings under Pep though. He doesn't stick around for long and I highly doubt he'll be in charge when their young guns reach their prime. And that's the thing. These players aren't in their prime. Signings like this doesn't make them a super team or a team to be prematurely feared. That would take years to build. And even then, there are no guarantees.
  12. Champions League thread

    I'd love Barcelona in the group. Would give us the opportunity to see how good this Chelsea side truly is. I've never liked easy runs. If you reach the quarters or semis by dodging the top teams you haven't proven anything. The games vs big teams are the most enjoyable as well.
  13. Chelsea 5-1 Sunderland

    Best offence in the league Best defence in the league Top scorer in Harry Kane Highest total points ever And you finish 2nd. Chelsea Football Club, home of the proud party poopers.

  15. Rank PL Title Win

    Robben wasn't anywhere near the player he is now back then. Great talent but inconsistent, which is normal for a young player making the move from PSV to Chelsea. Pedro was a far more consistent and decisive performer in 16/17. Diego trumps Didier in 04/05. We didn't see performances like Diego's in the first half of the season from Drogs until his third season at Chelsea.
