    So we should buy a 1st choice CB despite one of our CBs performing brilliantly and we should buy a 1st choice ST despite our 22 year old striker scoring 10 in 12 games. 😂😂😂 Some "fans" seriously crack me up.

    I was born in Punjab, but brought up in Mumbai and have been living there since. Small world 😍

    Yup bro. The exams are a killer here. Literally in a lot of cases 😂. Good to hear about the government initiative. I hope they do something similar here. I too have noticed how often we are on the same wavelength 😂. Which part of India?

    Thanks mate. Hope you make it too. Just need to keep plugging, because there will be times when you will feel, "fuck it, I am done" 😂

    Oh my God. What objections have you addressed. You are going on and on about how money can be carried over when none of this is true. I am sure all the CAs and accounting people are idiots. Who do everything in their power to balance books. Understsnd those basic concepts before blaming the board and the people who are running the club and making wild and OTT claims about what the club should do when it is not even possible. Get real for a moment. "it is madness to say that monies gained from sales cannot be included because they were not spent" No. That is not what I am saying at all. What I am saying is that financial books of different years are completely different. Because of over spending in 18/19, we can't again over spend in 20/21 too given how FfP works which is on a 3 year rolling window. And we do take FfP seriously "are you going to argue that we then have no money for summer 2021 (as all the sales, or the vast majority of them) happened before summer 2021?" No. And don't be stupid about this. This is why clubs have a transfer budget. Player sales are not the only way to generate money for transfers. Clubs like United have a much higher revenues compared to ours while having similar expenditures in terms of player amortized values and wages, which leads to us having less spare budget compared to them because of which we have to rely on player selling. Please don't forget that balancing books and the end of year financial statement is massively important to the club trying to become self sustainable.

    My God!!! Oh man. You cant go back a window and just include whatever you want mate. It's neither the way accounting works, nor the way the club does. If we were banned this year, that is the exact same reason why we bought pulisic a season before. And that's why I said, that we over spent in 18/19 so as to cover for this window. Understand what I said in the first post? The club CAN NOT include hazard's sale in the 20/21 books. Which means that 100mil is not available plus it is already offset by pulisic's transfer too. You can keep on saying about the 500mil figure, but thats nothing but a stupid way too look at it. You want to have a bet how much we are going to spend next sunmer? The club can't spend 500mil on players while amortization sales are there just for 250mil. Not anymore. Or we would need massive amounts for roman, which is not happening. Also how am I putting In kovacic twice? What are you understanding that I am saying? The only thing I am repeatedly saying is, you can't use the last season's sales, to include for the next summer, that is not how accounting works also you are not including what the club did the transfer window to compensate for this ban. You either look at every thing individually or then look at thinfs at a whole. Don't see at things the way you want. I am not disputing the actual numbers, I am disputing how much budget we will have available. And it will not have the sales available from this year's seasons. That's all I am saying.

    Naaaaa.. just sell him 😂😂😂
  11. Chelsea's Transfer Targets

    What? Hazard, and the 18/19 guys have been sold so those can be included, but not the ones bought just a year ago? How does that make sense? There is a 18/19 outlay and a 19/20 outlay and a 20/21 outlay. The only reason I even bought up the 18/19 buys, is because you are somehow adding the 19/20 sold players for the next summer kitty. You can't carry that forward on the books. Hazard is done. His 100/130m sale will have no impact on the 20/21 book. If the 18/19 boughts can't be counted on your books next year, how can the 19/20 sold be counted? For the 20/21 summer, only the sales done in 20/21 will be counted. Hazard's, omerou, and the rest can not be included in your figures at all. They are for the 19/20 books and that is the point I am trying to make. Fair enough on JKS, did not know he had extended. If he has, I would rather he go on loan. Drinkwater was healthy this window, I did not see any clubs banging on our doors to take him off our hands, even on loan. So how can you make that assumption that he will fetch that sum? My conclusion: I am sorry, but I still can't make any sense of how you have included this year's sales in your transfer kitty for next summer. Makes absolutely no sense. And on the other hand you are saying that our transfers should have nothing to do with previous years, which I totally agree. In short, let's wait for the 20/21 summer window to happen and see how much we spend.shoukd give a fair indication

    Did not he also score the winner in a CL game against inter after being 0-2 down?

    I don't think we should take the sales of this year too. It seems like the club/board had well anticipated the ban, bought the likes of kepa/puli etc in 17/18. We had a net spend of 120+mil in that year. So this year seems to be just a correction of that. So the likes of Eden, omerou, Palmer, da Silva, hector, kalas, Aina and Luiz should not be included on the list. Also, giroud, Pedro, mvg, kenedy, Jake clarke-salter, musonda, are in the last year of their contracts, same as willian. Don't think these guys would fetch anything is we want to sell them, neither would they sign an extension just for us to try and make a quick buck out of them. Piàzon has a contract till 2021, but a loan spell till the end of his contract. Won't be surprised if the club has given up totally on him. Just get his wages off the book. Also, I don't think we would be able to offload drinkwater for 12mil. I mean we can hardly find a club to pay his wages, finding a club to pay that fee and his wages will be next to impossible. Out of the whole list, I think these are the ones which should be counted: £30m Bakayoko £30m Bats £50m Morata £30m Alonso £40m Zouma £10m Moses £13m Zappacosta £10m Baba £7m Lewis Baker £7m Juan Castillo £5m Matt Miazga £2m Richard Nartey £5m Danilo Pantic £8 Izzy Brown £25m Azpi £30m Barkely So all of this is close to 300mil. And we would need a 2nd and 3rd choice ST. A first choice CB (that is what zouma is), LB, Rb, a first and second choice Rw.
  14. Chelsea's Transfer Targets

    How many can we realistically get? Pool won't sell vvd unless it's a 150-200mil bid. Why would varane even want to move from RM to Chelsea? Koulobaly - not at all sold that he is anywhere near world class. Also, Napoli has given 15 goals in 12 games, we have conceded 17 in 12 and 4 in last 6. I honestly don't believe the koulibaly hype.
  15. 17. Mateo Kovacic

    In that case, all 3 for both the games after the break, city and Valencia. Need to be compact.
