  1. Tiemoué Bakayoko

    I think its pretty funny that everybody only believe those transfers news when they come from BBC and Sky Sports, but usually Daily Mail come up with the news one week earlier. Days ago DM was reporting was reporting we were close of getting Bakayoko and were trying to sign Alex Sandro. Now BBC and Sky Sports are reporting the same shit as "BREAKING NEWS". Don't forget Mail was the first to report Luiz was coming back when everyone thought they were creating a stupid story,

    lol Matic is just an afroless Fellaini. Can't wait to see Matic-Fellaini-Pogba conquer Europe in few months.
  3. The Conte Thread

    What you said doesn't make much sense for one simple reason: I pointed Real and Barcelona not to say their model is the "key to success", but to point that THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS KEY TO SUCCESS. Since the 1st day I joined this forum I've been reading the same thing over and over. Its a very simplistic way to look at football. Back in the day the word used was stability. It was something like this: *Key to success is stability. *In order to achieve stability you can't fire managers, even if the results are bad. When you let manager work and let him build the squad he wants to he eventually will get the right results, even if it takes 3 or 4 years. Well, SAF did that with United, didn't him? When I joined Ancelotti was the manager. After the double everyone here wanted him to create a "dynasty"....and even during AVB tenure many people were backing him using the "stability" argument. Well, nowadays people are more open minded to sacking managers, but now they created another "key to success": managers must get full control of transfer market, and when things are not working, people will come up with this excuse: Its the board fault, because they didn't get the players the manager wanted. Just look back when Conte's team was getting smashed by Liverpool and Arsenal, people were saying things like: "its board fault because they didn't get Koulibaly and Naingolan, instead we got Luiz and Alonso"....well, Luiz was one of the best players in the league, and Alonso one of the top signings of the season. I'm sure the board listens to managers, but they won't buy players that won't fit the club's policy. For example, I'm sure Conte is willing to pay 50m or even more for Bonucci, but its pretty clear Bonucci is not the kind of player the club buy for that price. To other side when Conte send Costa a sms saying he is not wanted anymore, he is putting the club in a weak position in transfer market. I don't even know how people here can see that as an ultra cool move from Conte, as we were in some Netflix series: "oh, Conte is badass", "Conte savaged there", "uuu, Costa deserved". That was actually a dumb move, specially when Costa is basically our only CF (the other one was Conte's 3rd option to play during all the season), and our main target has a 100m asking price. For me the Costa incident is just another good reason why he can't have more control in transfer market and should world with the players that are available. Its the managers job to make the squad work, thats why they receive huge paychecks, not to play some kind of FIFA or PES career mode in real life. Conte even managed to turn Moses into a useful player. He should concentrate more on that instead of asking for more control. This is a club that sacked a manager that was considered a living god by most of fans, I hope Conte is not stupid enough to try to start a losing war.
  4. Chelsea Kits 2016/17

    Lets say those kits are "uninspiring".
  5. The Conte Thread

    This forum is full of nonsense This bullshit over and over again. We are in 2017...since 2004 (thats 13 years) this club adopted this formula: managers usually don't have the final word in transfer business, and since then this club got as much Premier League and European trophies as Manchester United. Real Madrid managed to build a squad good enough to win 3 UCL in 4 years with the same model, and its the same in Barcelona: "the board" is the one making the decisions about who is coming and who is going, instead of the managers. So, after 13 years using a a model, the club will change a winning formula to appease Conte? No way! Eventually he will leave the club, another manager will come, and as soon as this new manager win a big trophy, people won't mind about the past. Mourinho is the perfect case. When he was sacked people were mad. Months later Conte was the new hero in the town, but guess what, he is only the current manager because Mourinho was sacked. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/football/2017/06/16/chelsea-will-not-rip-winning-formula-appease-manager-antonio/ This is a very good article. If Conte is trying to get full control of transfers, he is starting a losing battle.
  6. The Conte Thread

    Many people saying Conte is ultra badass for sending Costa THAT msg. Actually I'm pretty sure the board is far from happy with the whole situation, and while Conte might not give a damn (managers usually leave a club with a HUGE paycheck, and he has jobs available in big Italian clubs), the last thing we need is this kind of weird situation, specially when it seems it came out after Conte could not control his emotions after Costa replied him in a bad manner.
  7. 15. Victor Moses

    This forum is really weird in terms of praising and criticizing some players. Moses was good for most part of the season, actually he was even essential, since he was the best player in the squad that could play the "wing back" role. Ok, but he has always been pretty limited, he offers almost nothing in terms of going forward, but he is usually pretty solid in defense, and he hardly make stupid defensive mistakes, but despite he being limited, there were a lot of crazy comments saying he as "world class" when the team started to win games after games. Now after a silly mistake in a FA Cup Final everybody are saying we need someone to replace him. Really? So if the result was different with Moses scoring the winner people would believe Moses was really good enough to start games next season? Moses is by a country mile the most limited player of the current starting XI and easily one of the most limited of the entire squad (if no the THE most limited). What he did this season was enough to give him a deserved +2 years contract and he will be a useful player next season, but as a squad player and this has nothing to do with his red card in the FA Cup Final.
  8. 15. Victor Moses

    Moses is not a RWB. Before that Arsenal game in the beginning of the season, Moses was just a "winger". There are few teams around playing in 3-6-1 or 3-4-3 system, so wing backs don't even exist. Usually wingers or fullbacks are the ones more suited to play the "wing back" position, and if a ultra limited player like Moses can be decent in that position, no doubt that means there are a lot player around that can play as wing backs.
  9. Antoine Griezmann

    He is the typical united player: french and overpriced. lol
  10. Rank PL Title Win

    You picked Moses because he fits the 3 CB system. JT is not suited for that system as we saw during this season. Perhaps 10 years Terry would be perfect for this system, but we dont know, but I would choose him alongside Carvalho for a 2 CB system.
  11. Rank PL Title Win

    Moses? Weird.
  12. Chelsea Kits 2016/17

    Strange, since 14/15 season for me is easily the 2nd worst Adidas home kit, its just not worse than the 09/10 robocop kit.
  13. Chelsea Kits 2016/17

    13/14 season, and I actually like the current one. 13/14 is my favorite, but I would buy the current one, since its a winner kit. Already a classic in my books.
  14. West Brom 0-1 Chelsea

    Conte has been awful today.
