  1. 19. Diego Costa

    Wow, "breaking" news since 2014.
  2. Alex Sandro

    Schick is a forward, has nothing to do with Sandro happening or not.
  3. Alex Sandro

    Not to mention this would clearly be a Conte signing. I'm getting excited, it looks like this could be happening. Serious intent shown with those bids and the club doesn't seem to be backing off. Imagine come 1st July the club announces all four (Caballero, Lukaku, Bakayoko, Sandro) at the same time, that would be epic.
  4. Robert Lewandowski

    Wow, could this really happen? We are showing positive signs this window with serious pursuits of Lukaku, Bakayoko, Sandro and now Lewa. It most likely won't happen because he has a contract until 2021 = price over £100 million + mega wages. But still, great to see us being linked to genuine world class players by reputable sources.
  5. Chelsea Kits 2016/17

    Too dark blue imo. I think the Umbro blue around 04-06 was better. But pictures rarely show how the real thing will look in action, let's see...
  6. Football New Rule and Law Changes Coming

    What details? How it works is pretty straightforward, I don't know what else there is to clean out that could take years. Ideally this would be in use in major competitions starting from next season.

  8. The Conte Thread

    Did Wenger get full control instantly or did he earn it with time?
  9. The Conte Thread

    Giving full control of transfers to a manager makes absolutely 0 sense unless that manager has longevity under his belt like SAF and Wenger. Giving full control to an employee that could well be working somewhere else in a few years time is stupid, the club would lack any kind of cohesion and vision in that department.
  10. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain

    A decent English player that can cover several positions, wouldn't hesitate to have him here for a reasonable price.
  11. Football New Rule and Law Changes Coming

    Take it easy Had you seen those games with video replays, you would have understood the joke about celebrations. Think the players themselves aren't used to such intense waiting and delays in decisions, imagine it's quite brutal in high pressure games.
  12. Football New Rule and Law Changes Coming

    You killed a light joke by trying to seriously analyze it, forget it.
  13. James Rodríguez

    I bet you didn't.
  14. Football New Rule and Law Changes Coming

    I don't understand your question. Video refereeing messes up goal celebrations, not the other way round lol.
  15. Football New Rule and Law Changes Coming

    It's being tested now in the FIFA Confederations Cup. It's been working great, but it messes up goal celebrations.. score today, celebrate tomorrow if you're lucky. Other than that, in the games I have watched, they got all close decisions right thanks to video replays.
  16. 24. Gary Cahill

    No I don't, but that doesn't mean I can't talk crap about them when they do.
  17. 24. Gary Cahill

    Not to mention saying that Gary should give his medal away. It's not an opinion, it's just putrid shit he would never say to GC in person. The guy is an attention seeking loser, as is the newspaper that published it and paid him for that.
  18. 24. Gary Cahill

    He gets paid for voicing his "opinion" to a wide audience, so he should be professional doing it and the newspaper should be professional in editing it. Saying that he feels sorry for somebody because he played with another player is what you see sappy teenagers write in forums and social media all the time, takes no skill or education to produce disrespectful shit like this, just like his playing career. And saying GC should give his EPL medal away, why exactly? Lmao gtfo you 4 time capped turd, probably thinks he knows it all now.
  19. 24. Gary Cahill

    Everybody knows that, he just decided to act all smart and attack our player in the process.
  20. 24. Gary Cahill

    Not world class, but not as bad as this guy is making him out to be. Feeling sorry for the goalkeeper because GC was in front of him? This guy should feel sorry for himself first and foremost. Gary gave his all this season, he went through a bad slump early on, but picked himself back up and went on to rectify those mistakes with some quality performances. We as Chelsea fans should defend our skipper from unprovoked attacks like this. He could have made his not-wrong point more politely, but instead opted to catch some headlines using our player as a scapeoat.
  21. The Conte Thread

    It's been widely reported that Chelsea has a ~£200 million transfer budget this summer, and it also has been widely reported that Conte wants ~5 new players. Divide 200 by 5 and we may understand why the board doesn't want to splash too much on one player, considering the average price for those 5 players must be 40 million. Put 90 mill on Lukaku alone and the rest must come at 27,5 million average, for which you can't even get decent squad players anymore. Add in our stadium expansion plans and this could very well be the reason why we have been penny pinching despite all the money being thrown at us. Either that, or we have incredibly shit negotiators. I hope this situation will be resolved quickly. If not and Conte walks, then Marina Emenalo (widely reported to be the main people behind transfers) must be fired ASAP. They are replaceable, King 'Tonio isn't.
  22. Lorenzo Insigne

    What's the verdict on this hypothetic situation? Is Insigne too big of a downgrade or will we surive?
  23. The General Football Thread

    Incredible goal!
  24. Romelu Lukaku

    And now he is looking to replace Rashford with Morata and Belotti. Rashford was ostracized before Zlatan's injury, at best being played on the wing which is not his position. He needed Rashford, but won't need him the moment he gets his strikers.
  25. The PES Thread

    It is wank on PC, playable, but clearly not the same game as on NG consoles. A slightly different PES 2016. Had it been a decent game I would have bought it for online gaming, but not this shit.
