  1. General Transfer Talk

    What makes him better?
  2. 28. César Azpilicueta

    ^ wow mad tekkers.
  3. 23. Michy Batshuayi

    How the f does he get into the Belgium team?
  4. 3. Marcos Alonso

    Depends on how that would happen. If he lost out in competition for his place then fair enough, but if he gets replaced by someone simply because he didn't cost 40 million or smth then yeah that would suck. Competition is healthy as long as it's not monopoly for brands/money a la United.
  5. The Mourinho Thread

    I signed up. Reason was to give my views in conversations regarding Chelsea and Mourinho. But then I found that in order to post in regular topics you first need a certain amount of posts in some bullshit newcomer section, fuck that so I folded and remained silent.
  6. 28. César Azpilicueta

    Yup, ball-playing CBs don't get much better than Azpi and Luiz imo. When he plays back to Courtois that means it is the safest/only option.
  7. 3. Marcos Alonso

    You are right, Alonso has been amazing. It would be with a heavy heart if he was to be replaced, but he does need backup/competition.
  8. Romelu Lukaku

    Thinks he is bigger than Everton, doesn't know his place. His mouthwork is worse than what Thibaut's ever was. Should probably avoid, don't want egos who will eventually think they are the best and bigger than his club.
  9. The Conte Thread

    Why? Nothing we didn't already know, by now it's been a pretty wide knowledge that Granovskaia and Emenalo are our main managers of transfers. Doesn't mean that they pick and choose every single player.
  10. The Mourinho Thread

    Dunno if it's been posted here, but here it is. Slightly interesting.
  11. The Mourinho Thread

    He's taken it a step further. I read somewhere he claimed fixture scheduling is conspired against United. Just like there was a "campaign" against us. What an idiot. If there is conspiracy or campaign against someone it is Jose, because as soon as he left we haven't had nearly as much controversies and no reason to suspect any "campaign" against us. And United have always been FA's darlings, if they are not anymore, then it's because of him.
  12. The Mourinho Thread

    So they are only now realizing you can't teach new tricks to an old dog. They will drop many more points because of that, which is good.
  13. The Mourinho Thread

    What a whiny little baby, he has a chance to win more trophies than others, boohoo... He claims to be a winner but whines like a proper loser. He's past his sell-by date.
  14. Bernardo Silva

    Hazard, Pedro or Michy. We've played without a pure striker before this season and done well, so it's not like Conte doesn't have options to field a mobile and skillful player up front.
  15. Chelsea 1-0 Man United

    Thanks, I'll check it out at home. I take it then that more was said in the PC than reported.
  16. Chelsea 1-0 Man United

    The quotes I've seen about this are harmless (see the espn link), couldn't find anything about feeding or using it to explain Pogba's performances. Unless they left out something said in the press conference I don't see any problem.
  17. Bernardo Silva

    That doesn't make any sense or Costa wouldn't be playing (that much).
  18. Chelsea 1-0 Man United

    Seriously? Was it a joke because Pog will be playing against his brother or did he use that to explain him being shite (smth Jose never admitted)? EDIT: Are you refering to this - http://www.espnfc.com/uefa-europa-league/story/3061296/paul-pogba-excited-to-face-brother-in-europa-league-jose-mourinho ?
  19. The Conte Thread

    Luckily he got enough to challenge for the title. It might have been a blessing in disguise too, Conte was busy with Euros last summer and it's questionable how much time he had to analyze the squad in depth without having actually worked with them. Now that he has we might have a clearer idea of who he wants now. It's also possible the board didn't trust him enough last summer, there shouldn't be any trust issues anymore. I expect a strong window now that we have more money, two league titles in three years and a better image. Last summer we were the team that imploded and finished 10th playing shit, no CL football either. We will definitely be a more appealing destination for a lot of players now with the positive reputation we are gaining and CL football. I'm confident we'll get a few cracking players.
  20. 15. Victor Moses

    Willian hasn't played RWB before so I doubt it. It's more likely that Pedro will play there, but I think Zouma will be replacing him and Azpi moves to RWB. Not ideal but we have to make do with what we got.
  21. Chelsea 1-0 Man United

    I saw that, couldn't believe what I had just heard Was it a slight dig at Lampard too? He was pretty critical of Pogba with Carragher and rightly so. But Jose's response was just wow. Surely he wasn't this deluded with us? And the way he claimed Pogba was the best player on the pitch... Jose firmly has Pog's dick in his mouth. Luckily stuff like that will be his and United's undoing, players will start thinking that putting in stinkers is okay.
  22. The Conte Thread

    And some other articles said Conte understood the difficulties of signing players in January and was willing to wait until summer. Who is right?
  23. 19. Diego Costa

    I know he hasn't been good but that's stretching it. For all his bad overall play, Diego has one of the best if not the best goal scoring ratios in Chelsea. Can't say the same about the other two, especially Torres who was useless all around.
  24. As we so often see teams are totally different beasts at home. They have 3 away goals, 2-0 or 3-1 is very achievable. This CL season is crazy as hell anyway, anything can happen.
  25. 7. N'Golo Kante

    I agree, Gattuso is a better comparison. However he was a dirty player with discipline issues, Kante is a very clean tackler.
