  1. Olivier Giroud

    It's sarcasm, ever heard of it? And Liverpool have a funny way going about strengthening their team, selling their best player and all.
  2. Olivier Giroud

    Yeah, it's all doom and gloom. Chelsea will get relegated to the Championship next season, okey mate. For starters you're really overrating Liverpool there. Mane's been shit this season, no better than Pedro or Willian really. Firmino is not a world class forward and the jury is still out on whether Salah can replicate this season's form for the years to come. And either way bar their forward line Liverpool are mediocre as fuck, and are always gonna keep dropping silly points if they don't upgrade the remaining of their back four and goalkeeper, VVD alone is not going to take them anywhere. Keita coming in next summer is a good addition for their midfield tho.
  3. Olivier Giroud

    What are you on about? Liverpool have strengthened? They lost Philippe Coutinho, in case you haven't noticed. Arsenal lost Sanchez too, and he was by far their best player. Aubameyang and Mkhitaryan are good additions for them, but let's not kid ourselves and say Sanchez isn't a huge loss for them. If Chelsea lost Hazard mid-season I'm quite sure lots of money would be spent on replacing him too, but it's never gonna happen in a January window. United have improved with Sanchez, that's true. What Manchester City do in this window I really couldn't give less fucks about, because the league is already theirs and next summer is a whole new window for Chelsea to strengthen too to close the gap.
  4. Olivier Giroud

    At the beginning of the window when it seemed clear the club are going after a target man for a striker, I thought to myself Giroud would be a pretty good option. Never thought Arsenal would sell him to Chelsea though, and certainly not for a mere £15M. I'm happy with this, if it happens. Conte gets his target man, player won't be cup-tied and is already settled in London and the PL so should fit in quite nicely. Would probably get a contract till 2020 when he'd be 33-34 and for a target man the age is not a huge issue. The older he gets the happier he'll be with a rotation role. Don't see why people are moaning, we're talking about a player who's scored +10 league goals seven seasons in a row while not always being a regular starter either. Huge threat to bring off the bench, can't even remember how many times I've seen him score a late goal for Arsenal when they really needed it. He can also play in a two striker setup much better than Batshuayi so playing alongside Morata with Hazard behind them would be an option too, especially coming on as a sub when the team need a goal. Ticks all the boxes you'd want in a January signing, really. Really hope the club pull this off, but with all the uncertainty we've seen with transfers lately I won't celebrate until I see an official confirmation.
  5. Emerson Palmieri

    Yeah, he's been on the bench for most of the games since like November but just hasn't gotten to play. Under Luciano Spalletti last season Emerson was their first choice but the new manager either doesn't rate him enough, or it's been known all this time he'd be off in January anyway so no point playing him. Either way, interesting to see what he brings to the team having not played more than a few minutes this season. Barkley is in the same boat as this guy and he's looked well off form so I'm not holding my breath on this guy shining either.
  6. 1. Willy Caballero

    Diego Alves with 24 saves out of 50 during his time in Spain.
  7. Ross Barkley

    I'd say no and haven't got much expectations for him, but I hope he proves me wrong if/when he does join. Anyway I can see why the club are so adamant on making this deal. Even though Barkley's development has stalled in last couple of years the potential is still there as the player is just 24 years old, so at £15M it's a no-brainer because it's still easy profit to sell him on if he fails to live up to the standards of Chelsea.
  8. Ross Barkley

    To have a much better chance of getting him, yes it is. In the summer I'm sure Arsenal and Tottenham would be all over it so he'd have more options to choose from and he could well end up elsewhere. And players moving on free transfers generally receive bigger signing bonuses and higher wages because no transfer fee needs to be paid, so there's that too. In the end I'd guess there's not much difference in the total cost package including transfer fee, wages and bonuses when signing him now as compared to next summer. And if he can help the team even a little bit in the second half of this season and also be a lot more accustomed to the club by next season, it's easily worth it.
  9. Ross Barkley

    Minimal risk, high reward. For £15M can't go wrong with Barkley. If he succeeds the club will get a cheap homegrown talent, but if he flops he'll be sold for same price if not more. The only downside to this is role of RLC. Will he pack his bags and move next summer after Barkley joining, or will he stay and either fight for his place or go out on loan again?
  10. Wilfried Zaha

    No, he's average.
  11. The English Football Thread

    Hopefully Loftus-Cheeks' place in the squad won't be harmed by the managerial change, it's always a risk for a young loanee to get stuck on the sidelines with a new coach coming in.
  12. Chelsea 6-0 Qarabag

    Courtois, Cahill, Christensen, Rüdiger, Pedro, Drinkwater, Fabregas, Zappacosta, Hazard, Musonda, Batshuayi Pedro at left wing-back.
  13. The Mourinho Thread

    He really can't go even one week without trying to talk shit about Chelsea, can he? It's only getting sad and bitter at this point.
  14. Leicester 1-2 Chelsea

    Courtois - Rüdiger, Luiz, Azpi - Alonso, Bakayoko, Kante, Moses - Pedro, Willian, Morata Subs: Caballero, Christensen, Zappacosta, Drinkwater, Fabregas, Hazard, Batshuayi That's what I'd go with. Some nice options on the bench there, starting to look like a really solid squad.
  15. Leicester 1-2 Chelsea

    Seems like Leicester can't play their Drinkwater-replacement Adrien Silva till January having missed the deadline by 14 seconds so he's definitely out of this game. Emenalo and Marina did bad in the window, but this puts things into perspective.
