  1. Christian Pulisic

    So much negativity. Brilliant signing, a potential superstar (he's only 20!) for £57.6m, which is nothing in today's market. Timing can be questioned, but if we do miss out on a Champion's League spot and end up losing Hazard, then it won't be another catabolic sh*tshow of a market trying to get anything and everything come the summer. Immense potential, great transfer!
  2. Chelsea 0-2 Man City

    You're talking as if this problem started today. It's been looming since the sacking of Ancelotti. Football manager, the irony
  3. Chelsea 0-2 Man City

    With FFP and this transfermarket, we won't ever have a squad capable of performing any style to perfection, because there's a tendancy to sack every manager every 1-2 years. Chelsea is no Real Madrid or Barcelona or Bayern Münich, we need stability to achieve success (e.g. the "Mourinho" team from first era that gave Chelsea the core to go on to with everything).
  4. Chelsea 0-2 Man City

    Relax. That's the difference between a team that's been trained towards a certain philosophy for two years (and still has needed tons of investment for fine tuning!) versus 2 weeks of "pre-season" on a World Cup year.
  5. Chelsea 0-0 Arsenal

    Direct rivals for any competition we're in at the moment par the CL. We just lost FA cup and Community Shield to them in the space of 3 months.
  6. Chelsea 0-0 Arsenal

    You're right, Arsenal aren't a fantastic side but today they had the better chances. Against Tottenham we lucked out and got the points, today it didn't happen. We go again next week.
  7. Chelsea 0-0 Arsenal

    Massive overreaction here. 0-0 against a direct rival is a good result in my book. Nothing pretty from either side but it's a point gained rather than two lost. Especially given the fixture list we've had and injuries.
  8. Chelsea 2-0 Everton

    Solid performance. Kante is a machine. Anyone know what Fabregas' celebration was about? Might have misunderstood it but it seemed as if he was sarcastically waving to send a message?
  9. Chelsea 1-2 Inter Milan

    Musonda's very sharp, a joy to watch.
  10. Álvaro Morata

    As is saying he WILL fail. Goes both ways and there's no way to predict it. I personally think he'll be great.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. Romelu Lukaku

    Agree, quality signings. Plus, if other clubs knew they had the "Lukaku money", they'd be held ransom.
  15. Chelsea Kits thread

    Work of art
  16. 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.
  17. 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.
  18. 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
  19. 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.
  20. La Liga Thread

    What an eventful first half between Real Madrid and Rayo Vallecano. The penalty incident was odd I thought, or?
  21. The Mourinho Thread

    What is this club about? Because, frankly, I'm not sure anymore.
  22. 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).
  23. The Mourinho Thread

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

    It's on twitter, it's official.
  25. The Mourinho Thread

    He is too smart to return. Why should he?
