  1. Jean Seri

    Seri in very advanced talk with Chelsea, personal choice of Roman. Apparently a reliable source, the guy who announced Fabinho in Liverpool... In Head of sport service for RTL France.
  2. Next Manager?

    It say "Blanc close to Chelsea. Happy for him. He gets screwed since few years and i wish him the best"
  3. Next Manager?

    Gasset and Blanc worked together during 10 years. 2007 to 2010 at Bordeaux. 2010 to 2012 in French national team. 2013 to 2016 to PSG. After Blanc's dismissal, Gasset goes to Saint Etienne in 2017. And at this day Blanc is always on the line...
  4. Next Manager?

    I have really big doubts about Blanc because when he was coach for Bordeaux and PSG, it's Jean Louis Gasset his assitant who was renowned for his tactical ability. Gasset was really the brain in the shadow. Now, Gasset is coach of Saint Etienne and it's difficult to say how good could be Blanc without him.
  5. Next Manager?

    But it's ridiculous, Napoli has already confirmed Ancelotti. They are not in position of strenght. If Chelsea refuse to pay the 8M clause, what will Napoli does ? Keep Sarri and Ancelloti on the bench next season ? This case is an absolute joke. I understand its frustrating for us because we just want the club pay the clause and go forward. But i can understand the club too, pay a clause for a coach who was clear from his club it's a nonsense.
  6. Next Manager?

    I like Conte but I hope that the board know what are the result to keep him next season. It's simple you can say bye to Hazard who want to play an attractive football. You can say bye to Willian too obviously, no need to explain why. So good luck to rebuild all our attack line.
  7. 10. Eden Hazard

    Hazard is our best players with Kante. He is fully committed to the club, repeat many times he love the club and we can feel it. After 6 seasons, he said again he don't care we have no UCL he is happy and ready to stay but only because he said he want better player it's a shame ? Come on it's not a lack of respect for others players, players like Moses, Cahill, Alonso knows they are not top class player. Eden is a nice guys i'm pretty sur he has never had a fight with team mates not even rivals players. He don't stay he is angry because his teammates are shit but just a team like Chelsea need better recrues than Bakayoko, Drinkwater or Zappacosta and he has fucking right. The guy knows he needs a different kind of football to express and shine. He is not a Messi or Ronaldo, he is a dribbler, one of the best dribbler in the world. So stop crying because he don't score 30 goals in a season because Salah make it one time. He is a a different player in a different system. And it's obious to say if Hazard playing in team like City he would score many more goals. When you have a player as talented as Hazard, when this player is a very nice guys, always smile, repeat he love this club, you should always be back him. We see less of less this kind of mentality in football, he is a simple and humble person. And even if is a flirt with Madrid because Real is his "dream child" who cares ? He has the right, he is not hypocritical to say Chelsea is his dream child but he learned to love this club. How many players are really attach at our shirt now ? Azpi for sur. Kante seem to be in right path. Christensen because is an academy player. Others like Rudiger will becoms in futur I hope. If Madrid don't try to sign it, and we show amibitions I'm sur Eden would love finish his career for Chelsea. He should become a legend for us. He has maybe not a leadership like lamps or Terry but we need commited players like that.
  8. 9. Álvaro Morata

    Morata should score easily 3 goals yesterday. He score just one with his head but fail again 2 face to face with his feet, that's a big problem. In the end, when he was on the pitch, Southampton play full attack and we have created many more occasion. In the 60 first minutes, Southampton play very strong behind. So Morata in less time had an easily game than Giroud for me, he had so more space to play. We can't compare Morata and Giroud because it's two strikers totally differents, and it's the best for us that we can count on two different profile. For sur Giroud lack of pace, but when he is on the pitch, the others players must know they can't make trough pass with him. He must play short. Howewer, he is a class player back in the goal. he is strong, play like a best and give 100% for us when he is on the pitch. In the end, they complete each other. The big difference at this moment, his Giroud don't need 10 occasions to scores a goal. I keep faith in Morata, I think the first season can be difficult for a player who don't know english football or english culture. And i hope next season he become a more complete striker. But Giroud stay our better striker at this moment. In term of potential, yes morata is better and yes he must become our number one. But for the rest of the season i don't want take the risk to give the key at Morata who score juste 2 goals in 2018. We have a cup to win, and a little hope to finish top 4. We must finish this season with 5 win.
  9. Olivier Giroud

    And some people thought we will go for Icardi? Lewandoski or something ? We look for a back-up player not a starter so wake up, it's not about accept decent. Who is Lewandoski backup in Bayern ? Who is Benzema back up in Real ? Who is Suarez backup in Barcelona ? Girourd is a great back-up player he prove since he was arrived in England so stop acting like kids who always want big signing. I understand that when we don't sign a big wing Back because we need that. But we have bought Morata 65 millions this summer. He was good then dissapointing but he deserves more time. If he failed, there we go for a big target. But Giroud will always be a good buy as second striker, not expensive, Conte's profile, can play UCL, have very nice stat and can perform immediately.
  10. Emerson Palmieri

    I don't understand. @Dimitr was adamant and said that any players we are link in Serie A was Conte choice. Would he lie to us?
  11. The Conte Thread

    Yeah sur but what's the link between these two facts ? We have not invest money (just reinvest), and the worst is we have spend this money on average players. I don't see where you want to go with your critics about my analyse about net spend.
  12. The Conte Thread

    But who cares we are "interested" in players ? The point is the players we are signed. No one of importants Serie A players that you quote were signed. Just Alonso, Zappa and surely Palmieri. No Bonnuci, no Sandro, no Koulibaly or wathever. If we sign Dzeko it will be a good transfert, i admit that. But I don't understand what you try to prove with yours posts. If tomorrow the board sign a bench player of Crotone FC, it will mean that the board support Conte because they signed a Serie A player ? Support Conte for me it's, do the best for signed his wish list players. The board can't because our low budget politic. It's their choice. So Conte accept average players so we are doing average result. We are top 4, in UCL (not for long but against Barca it's logic), in FA cup. It's just a logical position for a club who leads this kind of politc no ? Say Conte OUT what's the point ? You are really thought that we will be champion again or what ?
  13. The Conte Thread

    "Think before talk" from a guy who say absolut bullshit is really funny. Last summer we spend 220 millions on players and we receive 200 millions from departure players, so what ? You find 20 millions it's a really biiiig investment ? Think before talk yeah ? We replace bigs players by average players but yeah we spend 200 millions oh my god... So what, you would like Conte win 4 trophies with the players of the bottom of his list that board has aggred to give him ? Did you see United/City's investment compared to us, and you would like we are champions each year without spend money ? The guy just gave us a title in his first year, he give us true passion. And he probably leave in a club that will respect him and give him what he wants. But let's go to Ancelotti, Pochetino or anybody and sack him 2 years later, because fan like you are close minded and think managers are always the problem.
  14. The Conte Thread

    Yeah sur, and it's a big problem. Classic example, we don't want to pay 80 millions for a very good player. But to pay 40 millions for 2 average players it's okay. Maybe one will be just good, the other will be shit. Sometime we will have a good surprise and he will be world class. But several times they will be shit. And like i said above, pay for the 80 million player, will give us more certitude but also more money on marchandising. It will not be the case for average players.
  15. The Conte Thread

    And what's the difference ? We receive this money in selling players (loanees, bad, average or top players). But the fact is we just reinvest this money for new players but not more. The board doesn't invest money in the transferts, we are Chelsea, one of the biggest club in the world and we don't invest money. We have the new stadium, I accept that. But it's not the only reason. Its same clear it's a new politic for long term and no just to finance the new Bridge. As has already been said, if you want to fill this stadium, club must stay attractive, he must continue to make people dream. If we become an average club with average players, it could be worst for our incomes Who want experience that Liverpool experienced few years ago ? When you invest money on big players (fee or wages) it's not just for sport or result. It's also an important economical invest (more marchandising etc.). If we continue this kind of path, I really fear for the futur of the club.
