  1. Romelu Lukaku

    Not bad. That's around £150k which is solid for your number 1 striker. Consider Utd pay the like so of Ibra and Rooney 300k.
  2. Robert Lewandowski

    Probably just a rumour to pressure Everton in lowering the price?
  3. Alex Sandro

    Dortmund's Raphael Guerreiro would be an excellent replacement for Juve. If we can't get Sandro I hope the club goes after him.
  4. Alex Sandro

    I think he only had like two years left on his contract.
  5. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain

    I might stand corrected in this.....
  6. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain

    This dude would grab at least 10 goals/assists from RWB for us. At least.
  7. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain

    Pleaaaaaaaaaase. Please make it happen football god.
  8. General Transfer Talk

    Really? It's not as impossible as you think.
  9. Alex Sandro

    Gotta pay big for world class quality.
  10. Tiemoué Bakayoko

    Yeah agreed on passing, but he has the potential to become a great passer. He has nice vision, he sees the flow of the game well too. Nevertheless, top class pick up from Monaco.
  11. Dani Alves

    Playing in his favourite position or winning trophies with Chelsea as a starter?
  12. General Transfer Talk

    Has one year left on his contract.
  13. General Transfer Talk

    At least £10m from Solanke too. Since it looks like Diego is off too (50-60m?), we don't even have to spend over £100m net to get something like that...
  14. General Transfer Talk

    Perfect window for me that's quite realistic? Lukaku, Bakayoko, Sandro, James, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Caballero.
  15. General Transfer Talk

    You'd start Cahill over Luiz????
  16. Tiemoué Bakayoko

    I just did a video on him and he's more similar to Fabinho to me. He's athletic, but he's got a languid style of play and is a very good passer, Bakayoko is much better/more active defensively. I would compare him to Nzonzi from Sevilla. Is that a fair comparison?
  17. 13. Thibaut Courtois

    If Neuer was in England, I'm sure he'd be on like 250k at least a week. I don't think it's fair people discriminate the role of a GK like that. Just as important as outfield player, and one of the few truly world class players we have. What's 200k these days when Ronaldo and Messi are on like 400k, Rooney's on 300k? He has two years left on his contract, we can't afford to play around and allow it to become an Alexis/Ozil situation. He's already on like a 100k a week I think.
  18. 13. Thibaut Courtois

    Why is 200k for a keeper not ok? The guy is a world class player no? You wouldn't bat an eye lid at giving Hazard that... some would even be ok with giving Eden 300k. Why is 200k for a top 3/5 GK in the world too much?
  19. Andreas Christensen

    Sure. We will still play 343 but for a manager like Conte it's counter productive to just have one solid system.
  20. Sergio Rico

    I see a general trend towards our negotiations being exactly that since she's been in charge - antagonistic. Like you, I genuinely hope that it's not actually the case, and maybe I'm imagining things.
  21. The Conte Thread

    Ugh. These rumours are absolute bullshit. It's a rehash from the Inter story, resurfaced by that obsessed Mourinho lover boy Duncan Castles. Why in the world would you believe him? I'm pretty sure we have signings lined up and that the main reason they haven't been announced is simply due to the Nike deal. They're really trying to force this power hungry Conte narrative which I think is rubbish. Conte knew what sort of club he was signing for, he knows he can't be making Sir Alex Ferguson style demands just yet, he's only been here for a season. No doubt people will try to ignorantly blame either party (Conte or the board) to suit their agendas.
  22. Chelsea Kits 2016/17

    Rather it simple tbh. Adidas have always had better kits than Nike, at least we aren't getting those weird Nike kits.
  23. [REQUEST] Chelsea 4 - 0 Spurs 2002

    Already did, unfortunately nothing.
  24. [REQUEST] Chelsea 4 - 0 Spurs 2002

    Anyone got the full match of this game lying about somewhere?
  25. James Rodríguez

    This could be a 'good' thing.
