  1. General Transfer Talk

    I second this notion. Pulisic makes too much sense for Chelsea. I really hope we make a move for him in the summer, and ship out Willian.

    I'm with @Leif on this, that a fresh approach/mindset was probably needed at Chelsea. All of the talk about Emenalo's first true vision of the club, which I liked and praised him for, was back in 2012/2013. And since then, he's done ok to accommodate the fact that Jose Mourinho/Roman Abramovich sacrificed that vision for pragmatic success. Hell, Emenalo even offered to resign during JM's 2nd tenure because he knew/saw JM and him weren't a match made in heaven. But ever since Jose Mourinho left, I fail to see any clear vision that Emenalo had for CFC moving forward. And this past summer highlighted that 100%, with our poor player recruitment. All we did was balance the books this summer, with like-for-like-replacements. Marking the 2nd time this club failed to double-down on previous PL Title success in the ensuing summer transfer window. Twice, in 4 years. We didn't target/sign players that were going to carry CFC into the elite status or see the widespread promotion of CFC youth talents. (Christensen is obvs the only one.) Every other youth kid either: was sold, put on loan, or stuck in the reserves.) The Youth System (that Emenalo has done fantastic work with, and cannot be argued) has never been given the opprotunities to carry that success on the "big-stage". Over At Monaco, Emenalo will get the chance to live out that footballing dream and sign as many talented youth products that will be trusted and backed by the first-team mager. I think CFC could benefit from having a DoF with a different footballing vision, maybe a vision that excels in a pragmatic setup and targets players with different attributes/profiles. Just another day, supporting this drama-filled club.

    Absolutely not, I would assume. The club needs to prioritise Chelsea FC over Conte's wishes who will only be here for 1 year max, if that.

    Marina will face a lot of heat. She's been a logger-heads with Conte according to reports. Because he dislikes going through her to talk to Roman, abd obvs her failures to land priority targets.
  6. 9. Álvaro Morata

    Why does he feel the need to always shoot on his right foot? A common Morata sequence is this: Gets ball and faces defender, fakes right foot shot, cuts on left (defender is beaten at this point), then cuts BACK on right foot (defender now in excellent position), right footed shot. Also, why are his shots always so weak and dribble so slowly to the gk? I always thought he had a powerful shot about him... Those are 2 things that frustrate the hell outta me about Morata.
  7. 14. Tiemoue Bakayoko

    He played well, in the sense that he was a constant thorn to United's side. Constantly winning challenges and getting into dangerous areas. But one performance doesn't detract from his horrow shows against Palace, Watford, Roma (x2). I see very specific qualities Bakayoko possesses and Im not a fan of them because we already have a player in Kante who uses those same skills at a much higher level. Bakayoko wants to play with a holding CM like Matic and Fabinho, but Kante is already like that. So the only way both can play is if Kante is reduced to a holding DM role (which limits Kante) or both play in a double pivot, but that means we forego having a DLP to help in build-up and maintain possession. He's a redundant CM. What kind of squad building is that?
  8. The Board

    YO! This is major fucking news. Hollywood FC we outchea, What the fuck is happening behind the scenes at Chelsea? Did Roman actually back a manager over his stooges? What was the tipping point? Chelsea Twitter is a madness right now. Thoughts @Styles ???

  10. 14. Tiemoue Bakayoko

    Thank You. There was no reason to buy Bakayoko at all. His technique on the ball is embarrassing and the only way he excels is if he'd paired with a DLP like Fabinho or Matic. I wish his brother never caved in during negotiations, we almost, ALMOST got away from making such a tragic mistake. Imagine spending 40M on a CENTRAL MIDFIELDER, who cannot control or pass a ball without multiple touches or do so between the lines.
  11. 10. Eden Hazard

    Desperately need him to sign that new contract. However, I would completely understand if he decided he's had enough of Hollywood-FC. Man was surrounded by Alonso, Willian, Bakayoko, Fabregas, and Cahill. And Azpi as a RWB. I don't know how he hasn't strangled someone at CFC for such inept recruitment.
  12. 4. Cesc Fàbregas

    One of the worst CM performances I've ever seen. Only topped off by his partner in crime Bakayoko.
  13. 22. Willian

    #WILLIANOUT Man came on and couldn't complete simple 5yd passes. And his first touch has been atrocious this ENTIRE season. Beyond trash.
  14. 14. Tiemoue Bakayoko

    ABSOLUTE FRAUD.
  15. The Conte Thread

    Yep, #CONTEOUT
