  1. Nabil Fekir

    At this moment in time only Alfredo Pedulla is reporting it, probably milking Chelsea fans for a few final clicks before the transfer window closes. He's reliable when it comes to Italian football but doubt he knows much about this deal.
  2. 17. Mateo Kovacic

    If he does well for us this season no way will Madrid sell now, the lack of a buy out clause is big indication that Perez wants him to stay. Reports in Spain have suggested that Madrid think he is the natural successor to Modric so basically its a win-win for them. Kovacic gets to play highly competitive football and by the time he returns next year Modric will be almost 34, perfect from a Madrid point of view. It's positive for Chelsea as well, we are getting a quality player that probably makes our midfield trio the best in the league alongside City's. Also if he is a success and returns to Madrid next season at least the board know we have to replace him with a similar type of player, it's not ideal but definitely an upgrade on the likes of Baka, Drinkwater and Cesc.
  3. Mateo Kovacic

    Silly it its just a loan with no option to buy, very small time tbh...
  4. 22. Willian

    Look, obviously £60 million is big money for a largely inconsistent winger, but i'm not going to moan if we keep him. Sarri's a big fan and It'll be interesting to see how he fairs in an attacking team. I mean the large majority of his time playing for Chelsea and Brazil have been under pragmatic coaches, the likes of Scoalri, Dunga, Tite, Mourinho and Conte. Who would have Mertens and Insigne would be world beaters under Rafa? all i'm saying is i'm relaxed either way.
  5. General Transfer Talk

    It's not ideal but remember its a world cup year, players are coming into pre season late, add to the fact that Sarri has also just arrived himself, 4 weeks before first PL game and he still has to access the squad, it's going to take time. I think once the team are back from Perth things will start moving a bit more quickly, it'll have to.
  6. 10. Eden Hazard

    Di Marzio saying Real are offering 125 euros, no way Chelsea will accept that. The Italian media are truly unreliable when reporting on anything outside of Italy. We can slate Marina all we want, but she is a tough negotiator and with only three weeks left until the transfer window closes and Pl starts i have no doubts he'll be here this season.
  7. Aleksandr Golovin

    Im excited by Golovin, Yes he's a technically gifted player who can play in a few position, but for me it's rare to see such a talent work so hard off the ball and one that has amazing stamina. It sounds crazy but he reminds me of a young Modric. We all know Roman is a big fan but also Sarri is as well, he will slot in so well next to Kante and Jorginho.
  8. Jean Seri

    Personally would rather Jorginho but i wont complain about Seri, both extremely good at dictating the tempo of a game. My only worry is that both Kante and Seri are pretty diminutive in size, i can see certain managers trying to exploit that by playing longer balls. But tbf i'm just happy we're being linked with technical, quality players instead of workhorses.
  9. Thibaut Courtois

    I have to say Courtois has surprised me, big time. His passing out of the back has been sublime, i'm actually shocked how quickly he has adapted to this style of play. Under Mourinho he seemed to have a panic attack every time he was asked to touch the ball with his feet, but now he seems so much calmer and his passing has been on point.
  10. Nemanja Matic

    Great today, finally passing much faster and looks real comfortable on the ball again.
  11. Thibaut Courtois

    Think certain Belgians should learn from batshuayi, he's only been here for two minutes and already is a fan favourite, mainly just from his shenanigans on Twitter.
  12. Thibaut Courtois

    lol would Real actually want him though? he's a good keeper but IMO not out of this world. He's clumsy, slow, atrocious with the ball at his feet and hasnt got the ability to be able to play out from the back. He's the definitely the opposite of a modern day GK. Look at Atletico Madrid, they managed to replace him with a better keeper (Who's actually younger, may i add) in Oblak. Also he has to be one the most disliked Chelsea players ever, havent warmed to him at all.
  13. 10. Eden Hazard

    He's wasting his own prime years by being inconsistent as hell.
  14. 7. N'Golo Kante

    Thought he was decent yesterday, not amazing as many other Chelsea fans are saying.
  15. Thibaut Courtois

    Slow, lanky and awkward, three words that sums up Courtious.
