  1. Moussa Sissoko

    Very good couple of performances for France recently and has had some stellar games against ourselves too for Newcastle. His consistency is a big issue, but that maybe comes with his character and with the greatest respect to Newcastle, perhaps in his mind he feels he should be playing for a bigger club challenging for trophies. On recent performances he does seem to be a 'Conte' player for the midfield, and also someone who clearly looks near unplayable when motivated. With Conte seemingly the master motivator this boy might just be worth a punt.
  2. Graziano Pelle

    If he were to take Remy's spot in the squad then I'm all for it. Would offer something completely different to the squad with his size, presence and hold up play with proven premier league experience.
  3. Carlo Cudicini

    Rumours that Conte wants him as part of his backroom team
  4. The Conte Thread

    Cool, and it also makes me a little less concerned with the transfer activity for the club. People are having kittens at the moment because we've yet to splash £30-40m on a player, however (correct me if I'm wrong) I'm sure Conte never spent more than £15m on a player at Juventus and brought some real top drawer players during his time. I can possibly see one or two 'lesser' signings that people aren't overly thrilled about, but they will work within the framework that Conte wants to create. You only have to look at Belgium currently and England a decade ago to know that a hugely talented pool of players doesn't necessarily make a great team.
  5. Summer Transfer Window - Likely Ins and Outs

    A lot will depend on what system Conte plans to use. I think he will have a couple in his head and want players flexible and versatile enough to use a couple of different ones. Centre back, centre mid and striker is the absolute minimum we need though.
  6. The Conte Thread

    What impressed me most about last night is how much he got out of what is on paper a very average bunch of players (excluding Buffon and the defence). If England had to make do with the likes of Giaccherini, Eder and Pelle as some of our strongest attacking options (not to mention a player as piss-poor as Borini made their preliminary squad), we wouldn't even qualify for the tournament. I've read a lot about how he took a lot of players to the next level at Juventus, and last night seemed to confirm that. We clearly need 3 or 4 top signings to go into the team, but I have high hopes that Conte can also get more out of some of our squad options and younger players.
  7. Leonardo Bonucci

    For me he's the most complete defender in the world. Excellent all round at defending and reading the game, and uses the football like a playmaker to top it off.
  8. 22. Willian

    This Oscar/Willian stuff is such bollocks! I can understand the argument that Oscar has more upside than Willian. I think he's a technically better player, I just don't think his game is fully suited to English football. I think he would thrive in a slightly slower, more tactical league. Willian's strengths of pace, work rate, directness though perfectly suit English football, which is why I think he is definitely the better fit for Chelsea. That doesn't necessarily mean he's the better player. Can't we all just fucking move on though...
  9. England v Russia

    Thanks England just won me some nice money! Cashed out on England win 20 seconds before Russia scored and also had the draw so double win haha!
  10. Michy Batshuayi

    Bat shoe wee ??!
  11. Antonio Rüdiger

    I think it's safe to say we'd all give anything for Alex or Carvalho from then back in our team now. Our defence is a fucking mess and if I'm honest real top draw centre backs are few and far between!
  12. The Conte Thread

    Yeah that year we did what we had to do and somehow pulled it off. With Barca I have bigger regrets the year we were screwed at the Bridge because we should have taken the game to them more at the Nou Camp. They weren't at the level back then that they become. Those comments were aimed more though at PSG games and just in general at times over the last 3-4 years. Sitting back when we had such a solid base in defence and midfield back in the day worked, but sitting back and trying to contain when we've had the likes of Hazard, Mata and Fabregas in recent years hasn't worked for a reason.
  13. 21. Nemanja Matic

    For me though this will become a huge problem over the coming seasons. It's easy to say sell Matic abroad but unless it's to PSG, Bayern, Barca or Real Madrid (and in any of those cases you'd then ask the question why are we selling in the first place if those teams want him) then the best offers we are going to get are either loan to buy's or £18-20m. The money that is coming into the Premier League clubs is going to create such a gulf between our clubs and everyone other than the above mentioned throughout Europe that if we want top dollar for players, we will have to consider the opportunities available selling players within England at overpriced values.
  14. Eva Carneiro Leaves Chelsea

    Right or wrong, what annoys me the most is it is yet another needless event that has left us with more negative headlines and reason for mud to be thrown at us. Funny how it seems the case between Chelsea and Eva has dominated headlines, and Mourinho's case and any negative press has been nothing more than a side-note. Although now he is United's manager, I'm not surprised he's gone from zero to hero in many people's eyes in the press.
  15. The Conte Thread

    re: Conte comments on counter-attack. I think there is more of an emphasis in his comments about not wanting to sit back without the ball. When we don't have the ball, I'm sure he is still tactically strong and adept to ensure that the team is organised and hard to break down so I don't see his comments being a negative. To be honest there has been times when playing the likes of PSG and Barca in recent years (along with some of the big prem teams away) where I'd like to see a bit more adventure in our game anyway because there is no doubt we have our own players who can hurt these teams but sometimes we've seemed to concerned with what the opposition can do rather than what we can do to them.
