  1. Benjamin Mendy

    With the FFP rules, I'm sure they care. With them it's the fact that they've lost Kolarov, Sagna, Zabaleta, Clichy. From what I've read Kolarov's exit wasn't pre-planned by the club but rather Kolarov's own initiative. Over 130 million for three defenders who by no means guarantee success, well I guess that's football nowadays. I'd rather see Chelsea sign some "unknown" (read: unhyped) prospect and give them a chance (or use our own young players), like we did with Azpilicueta.
  2. 21. Nemanja Matic

    Or Bonucci wanted to stay in Italy all along and the rest is just a fabrication. Either way, there's no emotion in business, just numbers. If the numbers add up, selling to Juventus instead of Manchester United would make more sense. I'd personally keep him in the squad unless there's a problem with his general attitude.
  3. Alex Sandro

    Player transfers are a lot more complicated than that. Agents, families, personal preferences, third parties, contractual sell-on clauses, paperwork (UK is notorious for this) - and that's just a start. It's not only about money, we're just not as attractive as for example Bayern, Barca, Madrid, it's a fact, unfortunately.
  4. Romelu Lukaku

    Agree, quality signings. Plus, if other clubs knew they had the "Lukaku money", they'd be held ransom.
  5. Chelsea Kits 2016/17

    Work of art
  6. Romelu Lukaku

    Looking at Everton's spending and Lukaku reports-interviews, it seems Lukaku's sold. My guess is that Lukaku to Chelsea is done but they'll wait for 1st of July to announce any signings because of the incoming Nike kit deal.
  7. 19. Diego Costa

    Plus if anything, this will send out a clear and positive message that Conte is in charge and has the full backing from Chelsea's hierarchy.
  8. Give Us Feedback/Bugs Thread

    Been away from the forums due to work and studies for quite some time but the new design looks very nice, well done to everyone involved
  9. The Hiddink Thread

    That'd be the worst in my eyes. Because the way Europa League is set up, it's not very attractive to the fans nor clubs. Thursday nights in random places where pitch quality can be from wall-to-wall so to say, meaning possible injuries, fatigue and so on. The money we'd get from there is peanuts, we shouldn't go for Europa League. A season away from Europe would be an ideal scenario, in an ideal world anyway. We'd have time to re-build, re-group and focus on domestic duties to get us back where we belong, in the cream of European football. I think we'll be fine, past games have been positive. Merry festive period everyone.
  10. The Primera Liga Thread

    What an eventful first half between Real Madrid and Rayo Vallecano. The penalty incident was odd I thought, or?
  11. Pep Guardiola To Manage Manchester City

    Would not be the right manager for us. We just don't have that kind of quality, would mean more or less complete overhaul within the club and not only in the playing squad. While there are things we can improve attacking wise and being more fluid, then tika-taka is not for Chelsea. Simone or Koeman for me.
  12. The Mourinho Thread

    What is this club about? Because, frankly, I'm not sure anymore.
  13. The Mourinho Thread

    Just from top of my head: Chelsea: season 2014/2015 - Champion of England, top of the EPL from matchday 1 to 38, finishing as second best attacking side and best defensive side in the league.Real Madrid: season 2011/2012 - Champion of Spain, records for most away wins, most games won in a La Liga season, most points in a top European League, record for most goals scored in a season (121), highest goal difference (+89).
  14. The Mourinho Thread

    Isn't it obvious looking the the way we play? They don't look interested at all.
  15. The Mourinho Thread

    It's on twitter, it's official.
