  1. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang

    Why are we still talking about Aubameyang ?
  2. Chelsea v Everton

    Our first real test.
  3. 3. Marcos Alonso

  4. 19. Diego Costa

    Those are last year's shorts tho, probably kept them around.
  5. Virgil Van Dijk

    How typical would it be to strengthen the only fine spot in our team by splashing half our budget on a defender, loan Christensen and spend fuck all on other positions ?
  6. 14. Tiemoue Bakayoko

    It's basically his brother saying that he is match fit and might start against Tottenham. Not entirely convinced tho, the snap picture earlier seems legit, but for the text, anyone can rename a snapchat contact to Tb14 Industry and ask their friend to ask them the question etc. Someone correct me if I'm wrong tho.
  7. Nemanja Matic

    I think it's fairly simple, he looks way better in a 3-man midfield than a pair, especially like ours, with our wingbacks having so much license to go forward and the double pivot having to cover up ground for them. He might look better at United, sure he will alongside Herrera and Pogba, but the real issue here is not replacing him ( actually not replacing Chalobah and RLC, since Bakayoko is a direct replacement to Matic ). If we get a good mid this window we would have upgraded our whole midfield, if not, long season ahead of us.
  8. Spurs - Chelsea

    Ironically, what was our second game after the Swansea opener 2 years ago ? Yes, a trip to to the Etihad, dismantled, 3-0.
  9. Davinson Sanchez

  10. 19. Diego Costa

    That's a great comparison with Matic, the club would have probably settled for less money if it meant putting an end to this childish saga, had he been more professional about the situation as a whole.
  11. I think he will end up being here, he is currently owner so gettig used to the behind closed doors conversations and whatnot. He is one of Roman's favourites, if he shows his worth, he might just have some kind of executive role here. Let's hope it doesn't tarnish his legacy if it ever comes to that.

  12. Spurs - Chelsea

    Winning this would be reminiscent of our 1-0 at the Etihad three years and a half ago, where everyone was writing us off because of City's unbeaten home record and their form at the time, at the end, we ended up winning and could even have scored 2 or 3 more in the 1st half. Sadly don't see this happening this time around, I know the boys will put all their heart in it, I'm very happy with the performances of Rudiger, Morata and Christensen, they're all great additions to this squad but we're still not balanced yet, we are under huge pressure because of our recent form and shortage in personnel, and if there is one thing that the 2012-2017 generation taught me is that they don't respond well to pressure, we have mostly won our two league titles by being very consistent against the smaller sides.. Let's hope I'm mistaken, in any case, I'm waiting for mid-end September to start being optimistic again, once we got our marquee players back and had time to work on our best formation/set-up. UTC
  13. 4. Cesc Fàbregas

    The question would be, who are you willing to throw in Midfield ? Christensen, a man who impressed today, sure has played there before but who is still relatively inexperienced and new to the team ( and almost to the league ). Or Luiz, a man whose positioning could cause us issues at times but who had bags of experience, played there before and even bossed some games ( PSG and City mainly as cited before ). I love Christensen, he got bags of potential, but I'd definitely put him somewhere where he is comfortable, in central defence, Luiz' hustle could make him work in any position on the field, plus, against Burnley, he arguably played the last 30 minutes as a Central / Attacking midfielder.
  14. 23. Michy Batshuayi

    Guess we all understand why Diego was starting week in week out last year now.
  15. 24. Gary Cahill

    If Cahill is still starting ahead of Christensen AND Rudiger after his suspension I'm having a meltdown until he's benched/sent off again.
  16. Spurs - Chelsea

    Our first real test.
  17. 9. Álvaro Morata

    He also confirmed that he wasn't aware of Conte's interest in him this summer, and that Chelsea directly became his preference when he knew.
  18. The Board

    I'd even go as far as stating that almost NO manager in Roman's tenure has even been sacked wrongly. If you take a look at our performances and squad health before each of the sackings, the only one you can make a case for is Ancelotti, with the board letting him down big time in the 2010 summer and sacking him for not delivering the season after.
  19. Loanees XI

    Not sure there is a similar thread over here, correct If I'm wrong. But amidst the doom and gloom reining this start of the season, let's take our minds off the first team for a while and discuss new things. What would be your best loanees XI currently ? And how do you think they would fair in the Premier League ?
  20. Loanees XI

    Where do you reckon they would end up in the League ? Envoyé de mon SM-A510F en utilisant Tapatalk
  21. 10. Eden Hazard

    Jokes aside, we are so dependant on him. But it's fine, Barcelona depend on Messi, nothing weird.
  22. Chelsea 1-1 Arsenal

    All aboard the meltdown train as I see... Situation is a bit worrying, not fully in my eyes yet. If we don't get 5 points from our first three league fixtures I'm joining you guys, let's just wait and see how we perform.
  23. The Conte Thread

    Here are his exact words : "So the lawyer's argument, that Antonio as a coach has forced the player out by a text message in June is just nonsense". To me that is denying that Conte informed Costa of the decision via sms, I'm thinking of something along the lines of "Good luck for the next chapter of your career";.. What's the issue anyway ? One thing we're sure of is that everyone involved knew the decision on January, starting from here Conte didn't inform anyone of anything. So, as everyone was obviously suspecting, Costa and his staff trying to leverage some nonsense to ease his departure, there it is, for those who still doubted who initiated the whole issue.
  24. The Conte Thread

    PR manager just confirmed that everyone involved knew the decision in January and that the allegations that Conte wrote a text message to Costa to.inform he is leaving are nonsense. Well... Envoyé de mon SM-A510F en utilisant Tapatalk
  25. The Conte Thread

    It's been a while since we got a real proper press conference really.
