  1. 9. Álvaro Morata

    Regardless, I would move Batshuayi before I moved Morata, put it that way. A loan spell playing for the second best team in Germany, scoring goals against mediocre teams doesn't make up for a year and a half worth of incredibly frustrating performances.
  2. 13. Thibaut Courtois

    Madrid is a lot closer to Paris than it is to London lets be realistic. Also in terms of a city I would rather live in Paris than London myself as well. I can see why players would rather live in London than Manchester or Liverpool but in terms to a Paris, Madrid, Milan etc not so sure it compares as well. But I feel that the big issue for us is the uncertainties regarding managers every 2-3 years, he's talked about the club needing a big invest to match the Mancs and continuity in decisions regarding coaches and how to take the club forward and that does affect him staying massively I'd imagine and I think if the club had that in place it would maybe convince him and Eden more, although I do find it strange that Eden rejected an offer in December, so for me I feel hes more looking to pursue a move more aggressively than Courtois. Maybe Courtois rejected one as well I don't know, can't really remember but.
  3. 9. Álvaro Morata

    And what if Batshuayi leaves, which is constantly being mentioned, have Lewa who is 30 and Giroud who is older as our only 2 strikers? Short term much? Morata is 25, he should be kept at all costs, he can improve still, he has the right characteristics to be a success here. Icardi wont come here in the summer I guarantee it. I'd be very surprised if Lewandowski did too to be fair.
  4. Wants to play a lot of football next season? Won't happen here. He isn't good enough yet for me, he played 30 games this season and scored like 2 goals and had 3 assists. If that sort of output along with the huge inconsistencies he showed at Palace are worthy of playing a lot here next season, I will be shocked. Fair enough its stats and they aren't everything but hes hardly had an outstanding season in any regards, I'm still miffed he made the world cup for England. Not even sure hes a better footballer than Barkley and considering he hasn't had a good run of games for about a year, says it all.
  5. Who will be the next Chelsea manager?

    Again I think this move is a bit of a risk, as Bayern replacing Pep with Carlo was. I don't think Sarri is as intense as Pep but I think hes a lot more hard work than Carlo will be. Hopefully it works out for both parties because Napoli have established a nice philosophy and Carlo is ex Chels but I can see it being a troublesome mix. Also no way Carlo is going to go there and not have the guarantee of financial backing, hes a house hold name manager.
  6. Roman Abramovich

    Think this is ridiculous, they say its new rules that were put in place a few years ago but I genuinely believe it is to do with his links to Vladimir Putin.
  7. 24. Gary Cahill

    Yes its true regarding the comments and I did agree, but its not like it was 100% about him, there is not much else you can say as a player about the team this season as opposed to "we played very poor this year" or "this season wasn't good enough" etc. hes also came out and said a lot regarding wanting the managers future to be resolved as well as talking about how hes had his critics this season, like many players, so its nothing particularly unexpected or for me anything that is trying to "overshadow" the clubs win in any regard if that's what you were hinting at. As a player I'd be disappointed still to have finished 5th, FA cup or not. His comment about the FA cup saving our season is the only thing that ruffles my feathers a bit because it doesn't and he is not the only player to have said something like this either. It almost seems as if the players expect it to cover the cracks of another mediocre season after a title win, which for me it doesn't. Also everyone will get a shot of the trophy don't worry about that, I just think its looking for an issue when there isn't one, everyone shared the glory of winning. Just because JT and Lamps lifted trophies together doesn't mean everyone else has to in the future, it doesn't necessarily happen at every other club in the world so why is it a issue? Even then if this can be used as an excuse, as club captain this is his first trophy so obviously he has said that hes delighted to win his first trophy as Chelsea captain which isn't an issue for me, just shows that he is extremely proud to be the captain of the club, which there is nothing wrong with. Also not specially relevant but people have questioned if he is the right captain for the club too but the other comments he made about not having a good season by any stretch, the club being used to winning and wanting to bounce back bodes well for me. I think people are under the impression he is just a fanny which he isn't, fair enough hes not by any stretch of the imagination a world class player but some of the shit he has gotten about being a shit captain is a bit of a joke in all reality.
  8. 9. Álvaro Morata

    Not sure what to make of it, I thought the new Spain manager was a huge fan of his and had worked with him at u21 level as well but obviously this should motivate him to improve and if it doesn't big warning signs. He has the ability but I am still curious regarding his mentality but am hopeful for next season still, think he can get 15-20 goals no problem.
  9. 22. Willian

    First half of the season when he just moved here he did, no doubt he started well, scored some goals etc but never really kicked on from there and I know Mourinho is a bad coach for youngsters (although Rashford the first season, Scott McTominay and also Lingaard have come on leaps and bounds although Rashford has struggled a bit this season and Shaw's career at United is all but over) but you can't blame Mourinho for his inconsistencies which were even on show under van Gaal after that good start. The fact hes made 2 appearances for France since 2017 doesn't help his case. He'd be a good option to have purely based on his potential and there is a player in there but I doubt he'd suit playing right wing which is where he will be shoehorned into if Eden stays and lets not kid ourselves, replacing Eden with Martial would be a ridiculous move as well. In terms of options in attack he'd be a shrewd move for 30-40M though because theres still time to get him back on track.
  10. 24. Gary Cahill

    Precisely. If this was anybody but Cahill it wouldn't be a problem. I don't understand why it is a huge issue at all, just seems a little bit of a petty thing to bring up, I mean I get it people like Azpi and want him to be captain ahead of Cahill but it just seems like anything to have a go now a days and its quite odd to see lol, the team won the trophy, it shouldn't really matter who lifts it. Especially after arguably his best game of the season, where even then the last games hes played since taking AC's spot, hes been to a pretty decent standard. Also his comments in the post match thing, he has received criticism this season, along with a lot of the team, Tibo made similar comments about receiving criticism and responding so again, its not really anything different to what I'd expect someone else to say who had been receiving constant criticism this season. He said the same thing a lot of the players/manager had said which was along the lines of "the season wasn't what we expected/hoped for not defending the league title", its not rocket science we could all see that, you can't really add too much more to it and we will see next season what happens because actions are louder than words so hopefully everyone comes back with a clear head, 10 times more motivation and performs 10 times better.
  11. Who will be the next Chelsea manager?

    True but I think if we finished top 4, Jakanovic wouldn't be in with a shout. The summer looks like it will be tough financially we won't have the CL windfall etc and I think the club is maybe going to look to continue down the way it has in the last 4-5 years with this one in one out mentality unless we get somebody to do what Conte did (think its not helped him but has shown the club in a bad light in comparison to the Manc clubs regarding ambition in the market), push back and say look this way or nothing. Can't see Jakanovic being that guy. Enrique isn't a brilliant manager in my eyes, I agree he wouldn't be the ideal man for the job but you can bet your bottom dollar he wouldn't come here unless he was given a good budget to sign 3 or 4 top top players at least as well as a good contract.
  12. Who will be the next Chelsea manager?

    Or someone who will be a bit more grateful for the chance and will be willing to take what he gets player and budget wise? I genuinely think that if Roman is looking at these sort of appointments then we can expect more poor signings in the future as opposed to actually going out and competing financially. Luis Enrique will want shit loads of investment if he comes, Conte will if he stays, Sarri hopefully a similar mind set. Jakonovic? For a chance at a huge club, where he played at as well, for a guy with his experience as a coach...
  13. 22. Willian

    If he is to go sell him to someone outside of England.
  14. Who will be the next Chelsea manager?

    Yeah I suppose but hes an interesting coach. Hes done a decent job with Fulham but I think his name being mentioned means we are literally scraping the bottle of the barrel to get a manager imo.
  15. Who will be the next Chelsea manager?

    Decent appointment I must admit, although I doubt he'll have as much success in the PL as he did in France and Spain.
