  2. Alexis Sanchez

    if anyone here speaks spanish, Feel free to elaborate. But I think Sanchez really said what all Chelsea Fans think/believe he said.

  4. General Transfer Talk

    @DYC. didn't even read the article to see the price being quoted.. Nah he'll never cost that much, better yet, Chelsea would never pay that much (unless it's Lukaku). £32M is the magic price for all CFC transfers. Probably right about Christensen/Zouma/Ake.. Will be sad to see Christensen follow the path of KDB/Lukaku, but "the game is the game." In a perfect world he leapfrogs Cahill (even if not next year, then the season after), but that's never going to happen to our current: Captain-Leader-Legend. Agree w/ Blue Colored Sky though that's its clear Conte WANTS a new CB, so we're getting one regardless.
  5. General Transfer Talk

    Like what im seeing on Twitter/Telegraph that Chelsea are closing in for Van Dijk.. Adding Van Dijk and Bakayoko into the team. As cliche as it may sound, but that's some insane physicality & power we're looking to bring. And now when we go up against Zlatan's/Llorente's/Lukaku's/Kane, we'll have a CB trio that can reciprocrate that physicality and not have them pick on Azpilicueta. Over at Southampton, Van Dijk gets incredible license to join in on attacks, but that appears to be an instruction given from the manager, and not him doing his own thing. Conte has shown he can harness Luiz, so I think he'll do the same to Van Dijk. He has fantastic touch when on the ball/passing ability, which should increase the fluidity of CFC's build-up play next season. i think it's clear Conte WANTS a new CB. So he'll get his wish in the summer. Van Dijk/Christensen/Luiz/Cahill/Azpi is good enough cover. So excited all-ready for the summer transfer window. Gonna be a lot of moving parts. Edit: @Blue Colored Sky Beat me to it
  6. Stamford Bridge

    Honest question: i've heard many posters here on TC many moons ago state they didn't think Chelsea could sell out a 60K Stadium.. How about now? Will Stamford Bridge become like the Empty-Had once we switch? Genuine question here. Thanks

  9. Stoke 1-2 Chelsea

    I would say Liverpool suffer the same fate too. (When Mane left for AFCON, and even when Henderson went down as well). But everyone else, I agree. Which is a testament to CFC's medical team and the luck we've hsd in being injury free. And also the fact that CFC seriously need 4 new signings in the summer. Imagine CFC losing a CM the caliber of Gundogan (in terms of importance to team), we'd be fucked beyond no end w/o one of (Matic, Kante/Cesc). Hell, how in the world did Luiz not miss any PL matches after Aguero's dirty tackle? It's mad when you put it like that.
  10. 15. Victor Moses

    Agree with @Jason as above, I don't think Zouma should come into the starting XI. We've been very very fortunate that we haven't suffered an injury to Moses or Alonso earlier in the season. Atleast next weekend is International Break so he's only missing 2 match-days. Think it should be Willian at RWB. Or, shift Azpi to RWB and play Ake at LCB, with Cahill moving over to RCB.
  11. Bernardo Silva

    Hazard would most likely play on the right, and even if Sanchez did he wouldn't be bolted to that right spot. I remember Sanchez's struggles on the RW over at Barca, but Hazard can still a menace on the RW. Just look at the goals he has scored in his CFC career using his left foot, and the dangerous final ball passes he's made even when attacking down the right side. I agree with all the problems you state this team has, but CFC are simply not going to solve all of them in One window. Now, we clearly disagree with the importance of certain upgrades, but when a talent like Alexis/Silva is available you gotta upgrade, and the upgrade here is over Willian, clearly. (And, concerning Sanchez, we sold Arsenal Petr Cech to Arsenal and Sanchez's agent reportedly met with Marina last week, so I don't think Arsenal would have no issues selling to us.) A new CM will be bought I'm postive. As well as ONE wing-back (either left or right). For CB, I think we'll see the integration of Christensen and that's it. I'd hope we could move on from Cahill, but you just know CFC are not that ruthless when it comes to underporforming players. Cahill is here to stay for next season, imo . The evolvement of this Chelsea side will take many transfer windows.

    Would you fancy Willian in the RWB role next season?
  13. Bernardo Silva

    It's gotta be Alexis Sanchez or Bernardo Silva. No Alternatives. If CFC want to be serious UCL competitors next season, then we desperately need to form an ELITE front three, and that entails cutting out Willian from the rotation of LF/RF as much as possible. Willian should only be relied upon in an extreme injury climate, in-fact, I'd argue provided we don't sign a RWB this summer, that Willian start playing at RWB next season. Back to Bernardo Silva. He's a fantastic talent, and even though he's not an extreme goal-scoring threat, he'll provide an amazing (Goals and Assists) output all-together. He's so young, there's no saying he can't score 10-15 goals in all comps if he were to come here. And absolutely love his work-rate for the team, the complete player imo.
  14. Romelu Lukaku

    your asking for too much sense mate.

    Pep Guardiola cost them big time today. But unlike the first leg, his in-game adjustments didn't make up for the early mistakes. Moving KDB centrally was a masterstoke in the second half, but how the fuck Jardim didn't switch to a 433 or instruct Mbape/Germain to sit off and only press KDB once he crossed mid-field was shocking. Too many times Bakayoko was rushing out to help close KDB, and he'd simply play one pass to Sane or Sterling and suddenly City are on a 4v4 creating shot after shot. Jardim reacted very poorly to this, or he could have told Mbape to play the role Moutinho had once he was introduced and drop into CM. Anyways, Monaco proved me wrong tonight. Had a feeling City would score enough tonight, and they almost did. But again, think this falls on Guardiola, for fucking up that first half so badly. If he makes that adjustment, even after the first goal, City are through. What an exciting UCL campaign this has been.
