  1. 3. Marcos Alonso

    I would probably say this as well, if it wasn't for last season, where he also looked useless for most of it.
  2. 1. Kepa Arrizabalaga

    Was always going to be close to impossible to fill the gap Courtois left, who I think really think cemented his rank as one of the best keepers in the world the last few years. So far I am far from impressed with Kepa, but I hope the scouting network, Sarri and everyone else who rated him highly, has seen the potential, and maybe that he just has to settle into the league a bit. I do remember De Gea looking like a bit of a liability at first as well, so here's me hoping Kepa can develop similarly. But it has not been two good performances so far, and the defense does not seem to trust him either.
  3. Chelsea - Arsenal

    Barkley is a trash dog. Please take off. Alonso... Well... No real alternatives on the bench. But do something.
  4. Chelsea - Arsenal

    Dear me, Kepa is looking well below the standard Chelsea is used to. The defense isn't helping.
  5. Thibaut Courtois

  6. Thibaut Courtois

    What a snake cunt. Not the least surprised though, always been his personality to be a bit ratty hasnt it? Amazing goalkeeper as well sadly.

    One completely unqualified guy for the job, to a even less qualified player for the job. Nah.

    I agree with your overall point. But just think not giving Arnesen credit for bringing such a talent as Ronaldo to PSV, is a bit silly. That was an incredible signing for PSV and although he was well known and not discovered by Arsensen, he was the one who thought highly enough of him to sign him at that young age. On Lukaku obviously every scout and their mother knew about him, by the time he played for Anderlects youth team and many probably before that as well. But it was Ariel Jacobs who gave him the chance and believed in him even at a very young age. Still think Emenalo should get credit for signing so many of these huge talents, it's not just about being the first to know about them, but also thinking they could be worth the money. Hazard however it's hard to give much credit for, lots of clubs were more than willing to pay the money. We can thank Drogba, RDM and some heroic defending in Munich for that more than Emenalo.

    Yet Arsensen got Ronaldo to fucking PSV. That was a huge scoop, even if he was well known by the point, clearly no big clubs thought he was quite as good as it turned out, and he sold him for a world breaking amount at the time. That is good scouting, even if he didn't come from out of nowhere.
  11. Chelsea 1-0 Man Utd

    Well it's a mix of being extremely rich allowing them to buy the best players in the world, but certainly also having a fantastic coaching staff there. Ramos is another who both with his jumping ability and no fear, gets on incredibly many headers. But Ronaldo is just another level with the way he jumps, it looks inhuman at times.
  12. The Board

    His vision was a 3 man defense of Hector, Matt Miazga and Papy. It would be bad, but quite possibly the most entertaining defense in the premier league of all time.
  13. The Board

    His position includes being head of the scouting department, so yes, he got a very big say in the scouting of players. This can be read even from Chelsea's official site.

    The last shit stain that Avram Grant left, has been cleaned up. Nice.
  15. General Transfer Talk

    Ake, RLC and Chalobah were clearly not trusted by Conte and weren't getting any real game time anyway, despite being in the first team squad. Terry was also clearly not good enough for the premier league anymore, which is why he was hardly played in the end, and was really just a glorified backroom staff member. Zouma was injured almost all season, and can't really be counted towards last years squad. Certainly if we count those towards the IN/OUT comparison here, we should also add Musonda, Clarke-Salter, Rahman, and so on, as players coming in.
