  1. Christian Atsu

    If anyone's interested Football Leaks got their hands on the written transfer agreement between Chelsea and Porto for Atsu, confirming €3,000,000 fee.   https://openload.co/f/Iqa7WLhFEXg/FC_Porto_%26_Chelsea_-_Christian_Atsu.pdf
  2. 14. Bertrand Traoré

    Well done lad! Hope he'll get a chance to continue kicking on.
  3. Is there an ex-staff member club anywhere?
  4. 11. Alexandre Pato

    Lmao, he's not half bad is he?  
  5. 11. Alexandre Pato

    Somewhere in Roman's basement.

    Payet is truly a phenomenal player, great movement on the ball. Very clever. Shame he turns 29 this year, would've easily been a great signing for any top club. He's in his element at West Ham.. I see Liverpool going after him, or Arsenal to replace Carzola.
  7. 19. Diego Costa

    A very loose term of the word "goalkeepers"  
  8. Gökhan Töre

    Lmao, another one. I remember this kid, wonderfully talented winger. Apparently left, iirc, because he wasn't able to secure any game time guarantees from the manager - Same time we sold Stoch. Scored a couple of beauties too.
  9. 11. Alexandre Pato

    Fuck sake. Are we Arsenal? Is this Kallstrom in disguise?! Thank fuck we kept hold of Remy, not that he'll play or anything.
  10. 5. Kurt Zouma

    No doubt, had a positive attitude to start attacking plays from his position. You do wonder what could have become of him if he did remain injury free, at least he's got a new lease of life at Southampton. Though it looks like his injury didn't affect him too much, he looks a shadow of his former self (from what we'd seen). But in trying to keep this on topic of Zouma, I think there are distinct differences that'll benefit him at Chelsea. He's a favourite of fans and management alike, he's young but mature enough to share a position with John Terry and keep Cahill out the team. People say how his knees will be a problem because he relies on his pace and strength, to be honest until he comes back and proves that theory wrong all we have is theory. But the graphic @the wes showed goes to disprove that slightly.
  11. 5. Kurt Zouma

    Yeah I do, but I meant it was so short-lived that we quickly moved on to be honest. That's why I don't think we'd loan Zouma out when he would come back to fitness because he because an important part of that back 4. Certainly the only one who showed any signs of turning up, particularly early in the season. It's funny looking back though. How shit scared were we Barcelona would come calling back? The many debates on the definition of buy-back v buy-out clauses - Now we couldn't care less so to speak, no-one mentioned any sell-on clauses hey?
  12. 5. Kurt Zouma

    Difference I find is that Zouma was actually a regular in the team. Unlike MvG and even Romeu, Zoma became a permanent fixture in the team for the whole season. The former 2 played but sporadically. Only Romeu was really hyped and by then we'd filled the midfield vacancy. It's clear Zouma's ceiling of potential is higher than the aforementioned.
  13. Andreas Christensen

    Lol smh. Just expect that he'll be back to playing reserve football if we bring him back early
  14. 5. Kurt Zouma

    Nah I don't think it'll be a year man. He'll have the benefit (though he won't see it that way) of missing the Euros and thus giving him the entire summer to rest and look after his own physical conditioning. Don't expect he'll be ready for the beginning of the season, but I don't think it'll keep him out until 2017. Expect to see him October earliest.
  15. 5. Kurt Zouma

    Devastating but at a mere 21 he should come back in no time. Of course there's always a risk with knee injuries, particularly cruciate ligaments, but let's hope the big man pulls through!
