  1. Alexis Sanchez

    Or 3- Arsenal tell him to fuck off, pack his bags and move to France, Germany, Italy or Spain. If he doesn't comply, they let him rot with the reserves. They probably wouldn't go through with freezing him out till contract expiration because they don't exactly come across as a club willing to miss out on a big payday but then again, I doubt Sanchez would be SO desperate for a Chelsea move that he'd reject the likes of PSG or Bayern if they come in for him and they're the only clubs Arsenal were willing to do business with.
  2. Alexis Sanchez

    Sounds like a fake quote, no way he'd say that mid-season.
  3. 10. Eden Hazard

    Spanish media are so obviously desperate for Hazard to move there, that's why they keep writing about him day after day. Their hope is that after seeing all those articles Madrid fans start to want him too and that would force Perez to try and sign him. Absolutely no real evidence of there being any developments or else we would've heard something in the English media too. Just offer both Hazard and Courtois new contracts as soon as the title is sealed and start looking towards building the team for next season.
  4. Wolves 0-2 Chelsea

    PEDRO!
  5. Wolves 0-2 Chelsea

    0-3, Costa to score two. Early goal is key. Delighted to see Aké and Zouma starting.
  6. Romelu Lukaku

    Exactly. He now has one more goal in the PL than Costa but looking deeper in the statistics we can see that Costa has scored in 14 different games and Swansea away is the only time he's scored more than one goal. Lukaku on the other hand has 16 goals divided over ten matches. Hitting 3-4 goals in a match every once in a while is all well and good but call me crazy when I'd much rather have a reliable one goal a game kind of striker who scores the same amount of goals divided evenly over the course of a season and doesn't go missing for long periods of time. That being said, Lukaku has definitely surprised me and he's been a lot better this season than last year from what I've seen. Maybe it's just a result of Everton having a better manager than Martinez but maybe he has also improved as a player, I don't know because I haven't watched Everton enough to say for sure. If Costa is really going to leave in the summer as is rumoured in the media, the club could do a lot worse than buying Lukaku for a replacement. Someone like Aubameyang would obviously be the ideal choice tho.
  7. Chelsea 4-0 Brentford

    Begovic - Cahill, JT, Zouma - Aké, Cesc, Chalobah, Pedro - RLC, Willian, Batshuayi That's what I'd go with from the start. Musonda and Kenedy can come on from the bench if Conte has decided to keep them and not loan out.
  8. 19. Diego Costa

    Too much drama with Costa. Great player but not sure if it's worth it in the end. Best case scenario would be to keep him till the summer with him banging in goals for the club's title hunt and then cash in after the season.
  9. Arturo Vidal

    Team will rarely win anything significant by signing just inexperienced kids with big potential, never a bad idea to balance things out with a couple experienced world class players. Vidal is turning 30 by next season but that's hardly too old, he should have at least a good 3-4 years in him and he already knows Conte's system well so would assume adaptation period to be minimal. Vidal or Nainggolan would be perfect but don't think we'll get either. Can't think of any reason why Bayern would be tempted to sell because it's not like their season is going that well and they'd need a replacement, which is difficult in January. And even if he were to go, the player himself would probably prefer a summer move in off-season to get one more league title and a CL title push with Bayern first before moving.
  10. Oscar

    Absolutely amazing if he goes for that kind of money. Not really a place for him in the currently preferred 3-4-3 cause he's too weak to play in midfield and not that well suited for the winger positions either (and is worse than Hazard, Willian and Pedro anyways). Wouldn't say no to £25M, let alone £60M. Christmas has come early for the club if this is true.
  11. The Conte Thread

    Remember when Nov-Dec was a horrible time for Chelsea and the slump always ended up with tons of points lost? Yeah, I don't miss those times either.
  12. 15. Victor Moses

    13 goals in 53 games for Chelsea, a lot of those as a substitute. Not a bad record.
  13. 28. César Azpilicueta

    Just how good is he at that RCB role? Gotta say I always imagined him playing a wing-back role should the 3-4-3 become a regular formation but Cesar looks perfect playing in a back-three as one of the CB's and Moses has been great on the wing too so right side of the pitch as a whole is very solid right now.
  14. The Conte Thread

    Would assume so, yeah. 1. Someone bets a sudden massive amount on Conte to get sacked which will cause all bookies to react by shortening Conte and drifting the odds higher for other managers. 2. Same person then bets an even higher amount on another manager to get the boot (like Bilic) and now gets huge odds compared to what they were just a couple hours ago 3. Profit, easy money. At least that's what I seriously hope is the case here. If the board were to actually be clueless enough to sack Conte after three bad results two months into the season and think they can do better under some second rate out-of-a-job manager who'd have absolutely no time to prepare for the season they're dumber than everyone thought and deserve all the abuse they've been getting their way and a whole lot more. If (and right now still a huge if) there's any truth to the rumors that Conte is close to leaving I'd guess it'd be more him handing in his resignation after the board not backing him enough in the transfer market than the board thinking he should be sacked. Interesting times ahead...
  15. 15. Victor Moses

    Gotta say, the lad has surprised me. He's played way more than I expected and done really well too. Maybe in his head Conte always had a plan to deploy a three at the back formation sooner or later and Moses fits that pretty well so that's one of the reasons he was kept in the squad. Not exactly as good going forward as some other wingers but fantastic work rate makes him a good option for the right wingback role if that's the formation we're gonna end up with, could be a real breakthrough season for him if he keeps his place in the team. Just hope the injury won't be too bad and he's back soon after the international break.
