  1. We should revert back to 4-3-3 and build the team around Fabregas. There are few deep playmakers of his ability and instead of playing to his strengths we expect him to dictate our play and put in a huge defensive shift. If he plays, we don't need a number 10 to create. 2 mobile, busy midfielders alongside him would give him greater freedom to control the game for us and create chances. I would love RLC to be one of those players and I think he has the potential to be. I think the other we would need to bring in.
  2. Will the Board get it right this summer?

    The club need to decide what they're going to do first with regards to the current crop of young talent we have. There is the potential there in my opinion to bring through a number of these and only leave us needing to buy a couple of top players to 'boost' the squad. We have the likes of Ake, Christensen and Musonda on loan all impressing, Rahman is starting to get games and perform, Zouma pushed on this season before his injury and if he can make a full recovery will become a big player at the back for us. Then the likes of RLC, Kenedy and Traore have all impressed when given the chance. When you take the above players into account, the club maybe needs a world class replacement for Terry and a very good striker to push Costa, with Traore supporting. I don't think major surgery is needed in midfield to be honest, the attacking contingent are amongst the best group around, Fabregas is looking back to his best and I'd rather not see RLC have his route into the first team blocked. If we buy a new midfielder it would have to be as a replacement for Mikel or Matic.
  3. Chelsea v Porto

    Any streams?
  4. Asmir Begovic

    Agree with this. Begovic has plenty of years left in him to move to a club where he plays week in week out. He can afford to give a couple of years to have a go at playing for a top club as that chance may never come again.
  5. 8. Oscar

    I'm pleased with this. I've seen more than enough since he's been here that he's worth giving a chance too with a proper pre season under his belt.
  6. Charlie Austin

    I really rate Charlie Austin, he's massively underrated technically, holds the ball up well, works hard leading the line. Above everything though is that he's scored goals everywhere and every standard he's played at. Every time he's stepped up to the next level he's still banged goals in. There is a huge step up from QPR to ourselves, but I do think for somewhere between £10-15m he's well worth the punt. I don't really want to see Remy leave as he's looked pretty good when he's played but if he does want to leave and we got Falcao and Charlie Austin instead of Remy and Drogba, our strikers are much stronger than last season.
  7. Abou Diaby

    There is an argument there however regarding arsenal's injury record in general, not just diaby (as bad and extreme as his has been). Would be interesting to see if anybody taking a punt on him gets him in a fitter state than arsenal could.
  8. Frank Lampard

    Just done his greatest #1to11 on Fantasy Football Club. GK Cech RB Ivanovic LB Cole CB Terry CB Ferdinand DM Makelele CM Gerrard RM Silva LM Hazard ST Aguero ST Drogba Can't really begrudge him having Aguero and Silva in his team as they are by miles the best two players at Man City. He did give an honorary mention to Zola too but he only played with him at the end of his career. Also made a comment about the dressing room saying Ivanovic's arse being so big and solid you could balance your pint on it!
  9. Radamel Falcao

    Not convinced by Falcao after this season but it is an improvement on Drogba for our trio of strikers and the fact is when Costa is fit he's first choice and plays.
  10. The Mourinho Thread

    Jose's just trolled the fuck out of the other teams at the Player of the Year awards...fucking legend!
  11. Player of the Year 2015

    I think Matic might get player's player of the season. It's generally someone less heralded (like Dave last season) so I think him or possibly Willian. It will either be a toss up between JT or Hazard for player of the year, and I think it will end up being Hazard.
  12. Frank Lampard

    Are the same people critical of Lampard going to turn on Cech if he moves to Arsenal or United? What about if Drogba signs for another prem team? I know what Lampard said, but things in life change and don't always take the path you plan. It made complete sense that Lampard find a team to play football with when he left Chelsea otherwise he would have kicked his heels for months waiting for the MLS season which would have ruined him at his age. Seeing as he signed for New York City, Man City took the opportunity they were presented with and given their UEFA sanctions they needed more homegrown players. I didn't like seeing Lampard in a City shirt, but I love looking back at old Chelsea footage of him scoring critical goals and helping us win trophies. It's pathetic if people cannot forgive someone who literally gave everything to our football club. And I mean literally because he wasn't the most technically gifted player but drove himself to be, alongside Drogba, our most potent weapon in the most successful era of this club.
  13. Bastian Schweinsteiger

    His injury record over the last couple of years is a big worry because there is no doubt it has contributed to a decline in his productivity recently. We saw how big a problem that was with Torres and it could so easily have ended up costing us this season with Costa. I can understand the thought process behind buying him or Toure (experience in Europe, short term so not to stunt RLC's development) but I would prefer to see someone much more athletic alongside Matic next season in the big games. Thinking Essien in his prime, or Ramires with a football brain.
  14. Summer Transfer Window - Likely Ins and Outs

    If Cech wants to stay in England, selling to United is the lesser of two evile as he's a replacement for De Gea but hardly an upgrade to improve them. He'd be a huge upgrade for Arsenal though.
  15. Pedro Rodriguez

    I really rate Grieszmann, but you're comparing somebody who has had one year at Atletico playing at the highest level and valued at about £40m, to Pedro who has played for years as an integral part of his club and national team winning multiple titles and the pressure of huge matches for £15m.
