  1. General Transfer Talk

    I fully admit to being on the Belotti bandwagon before it went veering off course.
  2. Aleksandr Golovin

    Not untrue. Though, I would say, it's not entirely about having a director that does things I (personally, because I keep saying we need a DoF) agree with, necessarily. There are some decisions and actions that I are frankly ridiculous. Like how the Courtois situation was handled, with no back up plan. You're right, we have no idea what Roman's real goals are. It just seems baffling that any plans could be to leave everything so late and apparently directionless. I think that it wouldn't just be us, most football people would find this baffling. But, you're correct, that's not down to a DoF. It would only be down to a DoF if that was what their job description (at our club) entailed.
  3. Politics & Stuff

    I don't think she's calling anyone a racist. You have your reasons to vote leave, just as she supported leave for her own reasons. I think she was referring to a portion of leavers who did vote leave for xenophobic reasons, and their relationship to the same portion of Trump supporters. That portion of unfortunately tarnishes everyone who did vote leave. It's a truth. In the same way that the idiot racists at our club (of which I think there's the same percentage at every club, more or less) tarnishes all of us supporters.
  4. The Board

    Are we looking for shoes for Unionjack? His stuff is a bit old now, and it's been done to death, but I think some Jeremy Scott Adidas are right up his alley
  5. Sarri But Not Sarri Thread

  6. Paul Pogba

    Yes, it's moot. I don't think it's that we just flat out won't deal with Raiola, but we won't pay his "agent fees". Hence why Lukaku is at Utd. That pretty much means that we won't be signing any of his clients. It's good in the long term because he's always angling for his clients to get a move (more agent fees).
  7. The Mourinho Thread

    That's what I think to. I think he should definitely take a year off. But, a team like Everton, I think he'd be good at.
  8. 10. Eden Hazard

    I'm not saying we actively try to piss him off. But (and this goes for everyone) winning is the most important thing. If playing in goal was the best for the team, then he needs to get himself some gloves. Right now, he, Pedro, and Willian are our 3 best forwards. Pedro and Willian work harder defensively, so Hazard at CF with the others on either wing is our team's best line-up. We can get in to the whole, "why does he want to go to Madrid when they haven't really shown much interest?" thing is a different discussion. I don't disagree with you: Sign a new deal, put a release clause in it that shows your'e one of the 3 best players in the world, and if Madrid think you are, then off you go. But, again, that's a different story.
  9. 10. Eden Hazard

    He doesn't need to be happy. If the team is better off with him at CF, he should play there. Also, I think he's gone, so keeping him happy doesn't really matter much anymore.
  10. The English Football Thread

    In regards to firing Jose: I think it really depends on who they plan to bring in. If it's Jardim or Zidane, yes. Get them in, let them see what they are working with so you now what you're after in the summer market. If you want someone who is currently employed, you'll have to wait for the summer anyway. Now, if Utd wait until the summer, then bring in Zidane or Jardim? That would be idiotic. Let's see.
  11. Tiemoue Bakayoko

    His passing seems to have improved: Though, he still seems to do that thing where he dribbles aimlessly in to a dead end, then turn around looking for short pass to escape.
  12. The 'What Song Are You Listening To Now' Thread

    Andrew Bird isn't that popular. I've seen him play at the Barbican Centre, and up in some Church in North London somewhere. You get right up close with him which is great. Queen rules. Brian May is incredible. Don't confuse me with anything like that. I sloppily play a bunch of Metallica covers in my basement. I have 0 soul. Just shits and giggles. A hobby that keeps me off the streets
  13. The 'What Song Are You Listening To Now' Thread

    I feel you. I play guitar, mostly at home by myself. But playing with other people is always a different experience. I'd say that calling your musical taste "wide" is a bit of an understatement. I get not being in to metal, it's typically quite aggressive. That Architects band I posted earlier would probably be more "emotional" than "aggressive" (their guitarist who was the brother of the drummer died before making their latest album, and there's definitely a theme on the album). Maybe, a little bit more up your alley: Despite all the metal I listen to, this is probably the artist I've seen live the most. Only on 1 occasion did I see him on stage by himself, he's usually got a backing band.
  14. The English Football Thread

    I see Radja as a B2B. Need an 8. Though, I'm not sure that's our #1 priority. I don't think Barks and RLC are good enough, but in terms of need: ST>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>AMF
  15. The English Football Thread

    We need an AMF who can defend. Pogba needs to be away from Fellaini as he can't get any pitch time £40M?
  16. Chelsea v Bournemouth

    Full rotation, please. We've been busy, and it's going to get even busier. Full 90 for CHO, please.
  17. The 'What Song Are You Listening To Now' Thread

    That guy's an incredible musician. I don't come across stuff like this very often. Thanks. I'll be honest, I don't know how much I could listen to in a sitting. But, you have to respect the talent.
  18. Brighton 1-2 Chelsea

    Was comfortable. Then just relief. 3 points for us, 1 or 0 for Arsenal. Most important thing. Maybe Alonso can get a retrospective ban. He seems to have 1 or 2 of these a year, where he seems determined to be sent off.
  19. Brighton 1-2 Chelsea

    Alonso should have a red and 3 yellows.
  20. Brighton 1-2 Chelsea

    RLC just isn't a winger. How is Alonso still on the pitch?
  21. Brighton 1-2 Chelsea

    Alsonso must have plans this evening, he's trying to leave work early. Do him a favour and get Emerson on.
  22. Brighton 1-2 Chelsea

    Fernandinho special.
  23. Brighton 1-2 Chelsea

    For sure. It was a professional foul by Alonso. He got beat, and fouled to break up the play.
  24. Brighton 1-2 Chelsea

    You can see, when you watch CL or EL, the reffing is even worse. I agree, the overall level in England is crap. But, when I watch a European match, it makes the PL look like it's reffed by an army of Collia clones.
  25. Brighton 1-2 Chelsea

    With the abuse they get in the lower and Sunday league, I get why no one wants to do it. But it's so inconsistent. Edit: We have a CF! Oh, our CF wants to go to Madrid in the summer
