  1. Riechedly Bazoer

    What's the odds van Ginkel's agent is also this guys agent. Anyway he's a talented player and if we could sign him and loan him back to Ajax for another year or two that would be great.
  2. Miralem Pjanic

    Seems a bit excessive to try and sign him when we have Cesc to be honest. Not sure if we are actually keen but seen the link on sky ages ago but yeah more pressing needs at the moment, particularly a box to box CM, a CB and a LB
  3. James Rodríguez

    Think he just needs someone to put their arm round him. Yeah maybe his attitude stinks this season but if I remember rightly Conte took a certain someone to Juventus, who's attitude was poor at Man City and made him play perhaps the best football of his career... Different situation perhaps but still you never know, it's not like James is a poor player Regardless it must be difficult to be a creative player at Madrid because every year or two they sign a new wide player or 10, there is a lack of continuity for guys like Isco, James, Vazquez and next year they will have Asensio or whatever his face is back from loan and whoever Zidane/their new manager wants.
  4. John Stones

    I said before he was average and extremely overrated and I've not changed my mind this year. He's shown that he has a whole lot to learn, he's not even at the standard for a top 6 team defensively in my eyes, sure he can play out from the back but for me the key to being a top CB is being able to defend first and foremost, all these ball playing CBs like Pique, Bonucci, Ramos, Laporte, Alderweireld, Vertonghen and whoever else are excellent/very good defenders, having a ball playing center half who struggles positionally is suicide regardless of how much possession your team will have because as you see with teams like Leicester, Atletico Madrid etc it can take one chance to score a goal. It's a vague saying sure because sometimes teams score incredible goals out of nothing but I'd rather have someone defensively sound, can position themselves well ahead of someone who can step into midfield to play. I know the chances of us signing Chris Smalling from Man United is impossible but he is the only English CB we should look to sign right now, we already have the other two English CBs who are at that sort of level in Terry and Cahill. Even then we have an incredibly talented CB learning the ropes in Germany, who is good with the ball and will not cost a huge inflated price and is probably just as good if not better than John Stones.
  5. Radja Nainggolan

    He is the right mould of player to sign, an upgrade on Rami but similar, aggresive, with a bit of bite and lot of energy. We clearly lack legs in midfield, Fabregas and Matic cover the ground but aren't particularly mobile and get caught out. Nainggolan would give us that aggression, mobility and also another astute technical option in midfield, he's not exactly as good as Cesc is in terms of vision and final ball but he's not as limited as Ramires was so it's a good move. I'd be excited to see us play a 4-3-3 with Matic Cesc and Nainggolan but the only issue for me is Matic playing as the pivot player as his positioning is dodgy at times, although there is talk of Cesc being used as the deepest midfielder like Pirlo was at Juve. Who knows though?
  6. Henrikh Mkhitaryan

    Decent player with a solid all round game but doesn't particularly excel at one thing. Perhaps it's a good trait to have, he's shown he is capable of being able to score goals regularly this year (and his first seasons with Klopp), provide assists, show that he is technically sound (but not outstanding) and also has a decent work ethic while being is in his prime years. Wouldn't be disappointed if we signed him and I'd hope he would compete to play wide as opposed to as a number 10 because firstly, I feel we need to play 4-3-3 next year if we get a good box to box midfielder and secondly, if we play with a 10 I would prefer we looked for someone in the mould of Isco or James, a really consistent creative player (like Mata was in the 10 role for us), who is able to special things which some players can't.
  7. The Mourinho Thread

    So how does that have anything to do with why we needed to sack Emenalo in favor of a stubborn, self centeredmanager who lost the dressing room and hadtried to blame the players after the Leicester game for 'betraying his instructions' when his relationship with a lot ofplayers had deteriorated? People seem to think Jose is more important than Chelsea FC itself, when in fact its not and you just need to look at how happier everyone is now he isn't in charge.
  8. The Mourinho Thread

    Mourinho still had to say yes to the players though. Emenalo can pick out players, have themscouted and the suggest to buy thembut if Mourinho says yes then he has the final say. If Mourinho didn't want Hector, Papy or Pedro he just had to say no, the manager has final say.. they work with the technical director.Emenalo is the same guy who was influential in the scouting andrecruitment of Courtois, Lukaku, Mata, Hazard, Willian, Fabregas, Costa and who ever else but he wasn't the guy saying yes at the final process, the managers were. Not every signing succeeds but if a manager doesn't truly want a player they shouldn't say yes when the technical director suggests them. The club has been well run in terms of finances the last 3 or 4 years to stick in with FFP too, so not everything is as bad as you make out. The summer window was poor yes but still Jose got Falcao (who was apparentlythe player he wanted the most all summer), Pedro, Begovic, Kenedy, Baba Rahmann (recommended to him and the club byAvram Grant) and whoever else. And you can stop spinning the shit about if your sacked youcan go into other companies and clubs, if he loves Chelsea he wouldn't go to manage United or City or whoever regardless.Jose said that the love affair with the club for Lampard ended as soon as he signed for City on loan or whatever and so by his standards itwould be exactly the same for Jose. Ashley Cole played at Arsenal then moved here and said he'd never play for another English club out of respect to Chelsea, Gerrard the same for Liverpool and Terry will be the same when he goes in the summer. Jose cannot use such an excuse,Cech can't andLampard couldn't either. Also how can you question Roman's feelings for the club? People were skeptical in case he got up and left after 2005-06 season taking money out of the club but he didn't and he has been here now for over 10 years. He has never took vast sums of money out of the club either but has heavily invested. Modern day Chelsea would never be what it is now ifhe hadn't came by. All your great modern day managers and players, yourMourinho's, Ancelotti's, Drogba's, Ballack's, Ashley Cole's etcwould never have ended up coming here and the club wouldn't have grown to what it has done in terms of being recognized as a brandglobally.
  9. Romelu Lukaku

    Lukaku is better than Remy, I think its fair to say that, do you not agree? Also Lukaku's all round game is better than his.
  10. 19. Diego Costa

    Ighalo? Really? Suppose we might as well buy Vardy and Troy Deeney too then. Ighalo is decent but hes not good enough to lead the line for Chelsea. At least those 3 could rival Torres and Ba for worse strike force of the last 10 years.
  11. Romelu Lukaku

    Well it will cost somebody at least 40M for him considering they paid 28 or more. He would of got plenty of game time here but he didn't want to earn his place in the team but rather have it given to himit seems.
  12. Romelu Lukaku

    There is still a reason he went to Everton and not another team I feel. He will never get to the CL with Everton so it really was a stupid move in the long term but probably the easiest team for him to break in to and make a name for himself at out of the other teams he was linked to like Atletico and Wolfsburg.
  13. The Mourinho Thread

    To be perfectly honest, you can't sack a technical director when its the manager who lost/upset the majority of the dressing room (which seems to be a recurring thing with him hence why hes never lasted more than 3 years at any club and likely won't). Also how can anybody question Roman's feeling for the club either?People seem to forget we hadn't won a league title since 1955 before 2005. Sure we'd won European trophies and won FA cups, Charity Shieldsetc but the club is in the place it is right now as a global brand solely because of one mans ambitionand that man is Roman Abramovich. Since he took over we have been the most successful English team in terms of winning trophies despite all the sackings and bumps along the way. Sure things have gone tits up to for people to question a man who's commitment has been shown in an investment of £1 billion or more is ridiculous. Just wait and see as well if Mourinho becomes Manchester United manager, it will show how much he "loves" Chelsea wont it?
  14. 8. Oscar

    Pity it took Mourinho about 3 years to notice.
  15. 17. Pedro Rodríguez

    I agree. Think he is the sort of guy who needs to consistently play to get into a rhythm, injuries have only disrupted his role in the team and its clear to see.Hopefully he can get back to how he was playing a few weeks ago.
