  1. Mauro Icardi

    I doubt Inter would sell but Icardi would be the perfect Chelsea striker.
  2. Barcelona 3-0 Chelsea

    Fully expect False 9 for 60mins, and then for Conte to try and go for it in the final 30mins.
  3. The Conte Thread

    Imagine being PSG and wanting Antonio Conte. Makes little to no sense for PSG imo.
  4. 6. Danny Drinkwater

    Yeah.. the people who authorized the signing of Drinkwater and Baka should be relieved of all duties concerning CFC. Such an appalling CM signing.
  5. The Conte Thread

    The feelings are mutual. Behind the jokes, man is legit worried about Top 4, Hazard/Courtois, Barcelona 2nd Leg, etc. These next few months are huge.
  6. The Conte Thread

    Antonio! Antonio! Antoniooooooooooo
  7. 10. Eden Hazard

    Eden Hazard FC. It was fun while it lasted.
  8. The Conte Thread

    This man is going to drive away Hazard and Courtois as his final parting gift to Chelsea. Roman cannot let that happen.
  9. Who will be the next Chelsea manager?

    CFC better stop spreading their legs for Luis Enrique & Luis Van Gaal and dump the truck for this man before Bayern change their minds.
  10. The Conte Thread

    Wake up Mr. Abramovich.
  11. Michy Batshuayi

    *Under this manager.*
  12. Christian Pulisic

    Not sure my heart could take this. But Pulisic & Bailey at the Bridge next season.... It would be all over. —Morata Pulisic—Hazard—Bailey The number of take-ons and dribbles attempted would be insane.
  13. Michy Batshuayi

    Badmon Batsman balling out for Borussia Dortmund. Batshuayi must love having 4/5 attackers surrounding him in the final third providing chances upon chances for him in the box. I'm so happy for him, tears in me eyes man.
  14. 27. Andreas Christensen

    And lest not forget how Conte finally started playing Christensen in the starting XI. All because of one fateful night in Rome, where Luiz and Conte got into an argument. Wow.
  15. Arturo Vidal

    I'd much rather see us go for Milinkovic Savic. Someone that could do a job long term rather than a year or two with a much larger wage. You won't find a bigger SMS fan than myself, I've been on the SMS hype train since last season. But we have to be realistic here, we already have Barkley. And while you and I know SMS > Barkley everyday of the week, I think the powers that run our football club will see Fabregas & Barkley as the primary creative CMs in our squad that will occupy one of those front '3' positions or most advanced CM role in a 352. Unless of-course, the club decide to move on from Fabregas, which then SMS would be a fantastic replacement for. In my opinion, the absolute first order of business for Chelsea should be fixing our double-pivot problems in midfield. Drinkwater and Bakayoko have been spectacular failures for completely different reasons this season. The former has never been healthy, and the latter is just a trash CM player. If CFC want to compete next season, we have to upgrade our CM options. Vidal would replace Bakayoko, and then a DLP really needs to come to replace Drinkwater.
  16. Arturo Vidal

    Reports saying that Bayern Munich are trying to force him out as they want Goretzka and Tolisso to takeover the midfield next season. Chelsea simply have to be all over this guy in the summer. Can definitely give us 2 top seasons minimum imo. Can't be having Bakayoko as an everyday starting XI CM for my club, that can't run.
  17. Who will be the next Chelsea manager?

    With regards to the bolded: I could say the same thing about Simeone or any other potential manager. So where do we go from here? Pochettino's criticisms/down-playing of the League Cup and FA Cup has always struck me as bizarre. But if he was ever appointed here, he'd understand that Chelsea want to win every trophy under-the sun and would thus adjust his mentality so I wouldn't be too concerned about that. Also, your failing to place Pochettino's success in proper context, like @Tomo alluded above, Pochettino is working on the absolute smallest of all budgets at Tottenham due to their owner, and he still just nearly had them winning the league. Yes he lost both times, but how can you not respect the process of how he has turned Spurs into a very formidable footballing outfit? Plus, If we're looking for a manager who understands working under a tight budget, I see no better candidate than Pochettino (along with the other positives I think he would bring.) What I'm looking for, is a manager that has shown he has the capabilities of building a footballing brand and developing an identity. Especially one that is pressing + attacking based. And of the coaches I mentioned, atleast all of them are capable of that in Tuchel, Leonardo Jardim, Pochettino and Allegri (although the latter not so much imo.) Furthermore, your not convinced that Allegri is an excellent coach?! How can't you rate a man that has gotten his team to 2 Champions League Finals in 3 years. Come on fam. Yes, Allegri is another pragmatic coach, much like Conte, and will cede possession in big matches if he thinks thats the best way to win, but he isn't as tactically rigid formation wise as Antonio Conte. Allegri would be the safest bet, if Chelsea want to continue the same short-term mindset that we are incapable of shaking. Under Allegri, I have no doubt we'll lift a trophy. But please if you don't rate Allegri as a tactical coach, please go watch Juventus vs Barcelona 2017 UCL Semi-Final 1st Leg, that was one of the finest tactical masterclasses you'll ever see.
  18. Who will be the next Chelsea manager?

    Ahh It's about time this thread got un-locked. Having a quick think about what which manager I'd trust to come in with fresh new ideas and could potentially match-up with the likes of Guardiola, Mourinho and Pochettino. Dream Scenario: Chelsea mortgage the entire Farm and bring in Mauricio Pochettino. Realistic Scenario: Tuchel, Allegri, or Leonardo Jardim. That should be the shortlist. Nobody else. Simeone, Luis Enrique, Ancelotti or Roman's friend Slutsky should be nowhere near the Board's mind.
  19. Watford 4-1 Chelsea

    I ask myself this same question everyday.
  20. Watford 4-1 Chelsea

  21. Watford 4-1 Chelsea

    This Bakayoko performance.....I can’t yo. I honestly can’t.
  22. Watford 4-1 Chelsea

    Conte must be a masochist. There’s no other explanation.
  23. The Conte Thread

    Reports in Italy today all saying we’ve inquired about bringing in Sarri.
  24. 14. Tiemoue Bakayoko

    Chelsea need to be ruthless as fuck and send him back to Monaco. Not sure I can stand another season, let alone 4 more months, of him, Cahill, Alonso and WIllian as regular Starting XI players in my club.
