    I would love to see something like this next season for a couple of games: Costa Boga - Hazard - Musonda RLC - x x - x - Zouma - Azpi Courtois
  2. Chelsea v Man United

    RLC should be our B2B midfielder today, not Matic. He's a much bigger threat in the final third.

    Costa is a much better number 9 than Griezmann. 
  5. 11. Alexandre Pato

    I feel exactly the same. That hope will always be there. 
  6. 26. John Terry

    No one in their sane mind would pay over £10m for a 35 year old player.

    Emenalo doesn't decide on these things... He's not on the board. 
  8. 11. Alexandre Pato

    Can't believe people are berating someone who's clearly very happy to be here. He's genuinely ecstatic about it. Excited for him. 
  9. Charly Musonda Jr.

    In what sense? This kid has got so much more drive and determination than Josh does, and seems to be a lot more dedicated to proving himself.

    This is the dream. Won't ever happen though :D.
  11. Alex Teixeira

    We've scored 9 in 4 games, we're scoring again now. 
  12. Alexandre Pato

    What would be ideal for me is offloading Remy and Falco and bringing in Pato with someone like Robin Van Persie. Costa, RVP, Pato sounds good you know.  I'm just an eternal optimist though. Pats at Milan was one of my favourite players. I hope he can be useful for us.   
  13. 19. Diego Costa

    It is. Football is a fickle game. Personally, I've always overlooked Costa's poor start to the season because the team was completely not good enough in general. Same way I'm overlooking Eden's poor form. 
  14. 19. Diego Costa

    He was injured lots throughout the second half of the season last year, so that stopped his momentum. He still had a 1 in 2 goal ratio back then though. He wasn't amazing but he was decent. Not sub par though.  I can say Costa is consistent usually because of how consistent he was at Atletico and how he was here last season for the most of it. Now he's gone through a very bad patch for the first time in years... With obvious reasons as to why... It's unfair to call him inconsistent. He's been our most consistent player under Hiddink whether you like that or not.  Getting another top striker in to compete with Diego is entirely another argument tbh. I'm not disagreeing with you on that. 
  15. 19. Diego Costa

    You're being a bit short sighted Choo! Costa is a very consistent player, don't take what's been going on earlier this season as proof that he isn't. It's an anomaly really. Costa will still end this season with 15-20 goals and that's impressive considering the season we've had as a club here.  During his time here at CFC, apart from before Guus arrived this season, Costa has been a consistent player that has played at a high level. It's unfair to say he hasn't.
