  1. The Mourinho Thread

    Latest news (go figure) is that we're in for a DOF too. And speculation is that both us and United are looking at similar targets for DOF...unless we're looking at the ex-player route..in which case there's Ballack for us, and Van Der Saar for them.

    Arsenal were always Morata's bogey team. Failed a penalty in the Community shield last year, another in this year's pre-season friendly, and missed those chances in the Capital one cup semi final. If scoring against any one team would lift a weight off his shoulders, I would think its Arsenal

  4. Chelsea v Arsenal

    Yeah I think they'll be coming with a point to prove. But I'm glad we're playing them at home rather than away.
  5. Chelsea v Arsenal

    Not sure if he will start, but hope CHO gets another shot at Arsenal. Unfinished business.
  6. 10. Eden Hazard

    Funny how this article comes out just a few hours after we've won. No quotes. Nothing on this from any newspaper in Europe. The Express must surely be in close touch with the Madrid top brass. A couple of days into the new PL season, ..they look at the PL table...and the media get restless and paranoid.

    Nice back-heel that led to the penalty. Need to see more of that.
  8. 29. Álvaro Morata

    What happened then was decent goal scoring chances ended up being thrown into the trash.. I'm hoping that doesn't happen here, which at least in this game, it didn't.
  9. 29. Álvaro Morata

    Exaggeration. Especially if you're saying that after today's game.
  10. 29. Álvaro Morata

    It will be interesting to see how he links up with Kovacic, since they've played with each other before.
  11. Huddersfield - Chelsea

    Bit of stretch to think CHO is going to start games on a regular basis, unless squad rotation calls for it. For me, it would be good if he came on in 65th/70th minute of the game as a regular sub. That's still very good experience for a 17 yr old, with less weight of expectation.
  12. 29. Álvaro Morata

    Good performance by him today. Worked hard, led the line well.
  13. Thibaut Courtois

    Yeah I wish Courtois had a bit more sympathy...but honestly don't care what Courtois says from now on. What's concerning to me from the quote, is that the seed has already been planted. Whether he says it in public or not. I mentioned in the Hazard thread how agents can influence player decisions, and how Hazard operating without an agent would slow these kinds of moves. Courtois could very well be the agent Hazard never had.

    Why wouldn't Madrid want him next him season? IMO, if he doesn't renew the contract, there's a good chance they can target him for a much lower transfer fee, plus one more player who is more of the 'galactico' goal-scoring category like an Mbappe/Neymar or even just a fantastic goal scorer like Icardi. It will be like the time they got Kaka and Ronaldo. Also, from Hazard's perspective, it would make sense to join next season considering there will be less pressure. He won't be viewed as 'Ronaldo's direct replacement'. The way I see it, thanks to Courtois or not, Hazard's head is already turned. The only thing keeping him right now is the fact that Madrid haven't strongly pushed for him, and plus, he has a sense of loyalty to the club and its fans, which is why he isn't handing in a transfer request. The only way I can see him renew the contract with us, is if we are absolutely flying this season not just in terms of stylish football, but also in terms of results. The one thing I hope the club will learn is to be prepared the next time a superstar is gearing to leave. The Courtois situation was too uncomfortable for my liking. We had to do it with Drogba, and we will have to do it with Hazard eventually. Meaning, have the next superstar lined up as early as possible.
  15. Thibaut Courtois

    End of the day, we have made the most of Courtois time here. 2 PL titles, 1 league cup and 1 FA cup. Not bad for 4 seasons of utility.
