    There is alot of talk we have been pulling restraints in spending money last few years, but if you look at the numbers, we are only behind city in total fees since 2010 (according to Cies). 
    10. Atletico Madrid have spent £688.74million in transfer fees since 2010 9. Roma have spent £729.31million in transfer fees since 2010 8. Real Madrid have spent £822.16million in transfer fees since 2010 7. Liverpool have spent £965.50million in transfer fees since 2010 6. Juventus have spent £978.12million in transfer fees since 2010 5. Manchester United have spent £993.45million in transfer fees since 2010 4. Paris Saint-Germain have spent £1.120billion in transfer fees since 2010 3. Barcelona have spent £1.258billion in transfer fees since 2010 2. Chelsea have spent £1.310billion in transfer fees since 2010 1. Manchester City have spent £1.325billion in transfer fees since 2010
    Our spending isnt weak at all, we just spend it on absolutely wrong players with some exceptions.

  3. Fernando liked a post in a topic by manpe in Chelsea’s stance on Mateo Kovacic has been revealed – and it’s rather baffling   
    The board doesn’t have any issues flushing £35-40m down the toilet for Drinkwater and Bakayoko each, but when real quality presents itself they start doubting and penny-pinching. Typical.
    RLC and Barkley are attacking mids that don’t offer much in defensive phase, Kovacic does. With him you sacrifice goals but gain penetration, possession retention and defensive solidity. They all fit in the same squad and cover different roles. RLC won’t make it here anyway, so no point bringing him into discussions. Barkley and Kovacic can cover each other or even play together.
    Sign him up! We have been crying out for a midfielder like this for ages.

    Most fielded U21 players : hot prospects
    http://www.football-observatory.com/IMG/sites/b5wp/2018/240/en/
    Issue number 240 of the CIES Football Observatory Weekly Post presents the ten most fielded U21 players in the big-5 leagues and Portuguese top division. Until last Friday, eleven U21 footballers had played the totality of domestic league minutes. Among them notably are hot prospects such as Rúben Neves, Jules Koundé, Arne Maier, Nikola Milenković and Rúben Dias.
    Up to six goalkeepers are to be found in the top 10 rankings: Emil Audero (Sampdoria), Gianluigi Donnarumma (Milan), Paul Bernardoni (Nîmes Olympique), Florian Müller (Mainz), Alban Lafont (Fiorentina) and Unai Simón (Athletic Club). With four representatives, FSV Mainz is the most represented club overall: Aarón Martín, Jean-Philippe Mateta, Florian Müller and Ridle Baku.
    Overall, footballers born on or after 1st of January 1997 have played 15.4% of total domestic league minutes in the French Ligue 1, 14.7% in the German Bundesliga, 9.8% in the Italian Serie A, 6.1% in the Spanish Liga, 5.3% in the English Premier League and a mere 5.0% in the Portuguese Primeira Liga. The average age on the pitch per league and club is available in the CIES Football Observatory Demographic Atlas.

    Okay, our squad are not perfect and we all can see the flaws but feel like some here are on a self-fulfilling prophecy mission, who never turn up when we win but do so when we don't win just to basically say "I told you so!".

    You should be the most happy of us all because you had us down to finish closer to mid table than where we are now.
    Shite? really? Flawed i'll give but shite?
    For the same reason they didn't in 16/17 until it got to the point they would look too stupid if they carried on denying so, back that season they were panning the Pep/Jose title race narrative all summer so held on for as long as possible before begrudgingly admitting how spectacularly wrong they got it, while this summer it was all about how Liverpool's window is going to elevate them into a title race, give City a serious examination while both leave the rest trailing in their wake.
    They will be even more determined to hold out on calling us title challengers for as long as they can this time because that will mean admitting they have made the same mistake twice (writing us off after a poor season).
  19. Fernando liked a post in a topic by OhForAGreavsie in Callum Wilson   
    Absolute non-starter. Not technically good enough. He's a good solid striker but we need an outstanding one. We want to be the best and that takes the best players. I like Callum as a player but he does not qualify.

    If anyone was to reread the posts on here, its like a mini crisis every 10 minutes. This player is terrible, that player is terrible, Sarri's a cunt for not playing CHO, I dont get it, we havent lost a game in any competition, we have a striker on form, midfielders all playing well. Why is there so much doom and gloom on here when we have absolutely everything to be happy about?

    We should buy him. 
    We need to keep our strength in depth in the midfield. 
    If we spend a lot of money on Drinkwater and Baka, he is worth it.
