    He signed a SEVEN-year contract. SEVEN!
  2. The Board

    Speaking the obvious but the most important thing about getting the Director of Football is that the person has to be on the same page as the manager. If they are, then it could work out like Txiki Begiristain and Guardiola at Man City right now. If one person is thinking A and the other thinking B, then problems will definitely arise. There is a piece on the DoF situation at Man United on ESPN FC and I largely agreed with the points made on that position. http://global.espn.com/football/club/manchester-united/360/blog/post/3597132/for-manchester-united-is-a-director-of-football-the-answer

  4. Same here. Thought I got kicked out.
  5. Okay...I had problems logging in as well. Had to change my password to get back in. And like Unionjack above, I can't like posts either and the 'Mark As Read' feature isn't working as well. Have notified Jim about this. Just hoping he sees the message!

    Could be interesting if/when Conte replaces Gattuso at Milan.
  10. Kurt Zouma

    On the 31st January 2014, Zouma joined Chelsea for a fee believed to be around £12 million, he will remain at Saint Étienne on loan for the remainder of the 2013-14 season. Zouma first appeared as a first-half substitute for Chelsea in a pre-season friendly against Wycombe Wanderers. He scored his first goal for the club in a 21 friendly win against Slovene club Olimpija, on 27 July 2014. He was given the number 5 shirt, previously worn by Michael Essien. On 24 September, Zouma made his first competitive appearance for Chelsea, scoring the opener in a 21 win against Bolton Wanderers in the third round of the League Cup. Zouma made his second Chelsea start and first Champions League appearance on 21 October against Maribor, helping his side keep a clean sheet in a 6−0 win. He made his Premier League debut as an added-time substitute for Willian in the 1-1 draw with Manchester United at Old Trafford on 26 October 2014. On 4 January 2015, Zouma scored the third goal for Chelsea in the 30 victory over Watford in the FA Cup. Six days later he started in the Premier League for the first time, partnering John Terry in place of Gary Cahill and keeping a clean sheet in a 20 home win over Newcastle United which put Chelsea back into first place. With Nemanja Matić suspended and John Obi Mikel injured, Zouma played in defensive midfield as Chelsea won the League Cup Final on 1 March, with a 20 victory over Tottenham Hotspur. On 3 May, he featured as a substitute for the final five minutes in place of Willian as Chelsea defeated Crystal Palace 10 to win the league title. Click here to view the record

    Good god. Suspended for a week. It's your third warning in the forum. You're walking a fine line after this...
  13. 33. Emerson Palmieri

  14. 22. Willian

    Willian was confirmed as a Chelsea player on 28 August, for a fee in the region of £32m, after Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich had reportedly contacted fellow Russian billionaire Kerimov personally. Clearly happy with the late change of destination, the Brazilian international commented "I'm very happy to be here, it's been a dream of mine to come and play here. Chelsea are one of the best clubs in the world, and now I'm going to play for one of the best managers in the world, so I'm very happy and looking forward to it." Willian made his Chelsea debut as a substitute in a shock home loss against FC Basel, and made his full debut for the club in a League Cup win against Swindon Town the following week. He scored his first goal for Chelsea on his Premier League debut, a sublime long-range effort against Norwich City that clinched a 3-1 win for the Blues in early October. Having been eased into the Chelsea side by José Mourinho, by December Willian had established himself as a regular starter along side Oscar and Eden Hazard in the triumverate of attacking midfielders behind the striker. By the turn of the year he was consistently demonstrating his skill in attacking areas and his notable workrate was no doubt a factor in Mourinho's evident faith in the Brazilian. He scored his second goal for the club against Southampton on New Year's Day. Reflecting on his move to Chelsea in January 2014 he told the FIFA website I kept an eye on Chelseas fortunes after they first tried to sign me. I developed a bit of a soft spot for the club. The problem was that Shakhtar didnt want to let me go. And then Anzhi came in and met my release clause fee, he explained. But that made my desire to play for Chelsea all the stronger. It took a while, but now Im here, and I couldnt be happier. Click here to view the record
  15. Sarri But Not Sarri Thread

    He came on against Lyon. My guess is he's not up to speed yet in terms of fitness and Sarri has gone with those that have had minutes under their belt - e.g Christensen - on the bench.
  16. 22. Willian

    Well, this part is rather ironic...

  20. Tiemoue Bakayoko

    BUT what IF he does well and the club decide to give him another opportunity?
  21. Tiemoue Bakayoko

    Don't sell him, people moan. Set ourselves up with the potential to sell, people also moan.
