  1. Abdul Rahman Baba

    Im not sure whats the recovery time for his injury, but he was already training, seen on pics from yesterday. Surely if he is already training with first team, he wont be match unfit for 4 more months?
  2. 9. Álvaro Morata

    Basicaly means on the long term either he will adopt or he will not succeed. Hopefuly he will be our striker for at least next 5 years, so we can focus on other areas.
  3. 19. Diego Costa

    Well not much of chance, but who knows maybe he will be back playing after 2-3 months...like Yaya at city last year.
  4. 19. Diego Costa

    Lol Tibo is proper G
  5. The International Football Thread

    Yup against Malta and still 0:0...wow England must be realy poor not to score against them in whole half.
  6. The Board

    I must admit, I have absolutely nothing against Emenalo if he did his job well, but as goes for Marina...well I will always think females are less suited for football, no matter how intelligent or educated. Its in dudes nature to understand football more and in the end when footballers we want talk to our representatives, Im sure they give alot more interest and respect to someone who is excellent in football business ala Peter Kenyon than someone like Marina. Similar is with Ac Milan, back then in 2011 when Barbara Berlusconi was appointed, it went all down for them until this year.
  7. 19. Diego Costa

    The players are certainly still friends, so there would be no problem. The question is if Conte is ready to forgive and forget problems with Costa. Personaly, I think having him in our team could end up us great addition to win Pl again.
  8. 21. Davide Zappacosta

    Nope he was mentioned at least a month ago, but I cant find the article anymore, because theres too many articles from yesterday.
  9. 21. Davide Zappacosta

  10. 10. Eden Hazard

    As long he doesnt injure himself, these games are actualy good for his fitness and getting used to the match tempo again. Seems he wasnt rushed back either, so its good, I was afraid he will not recover properly, but thankfuly he did. If he survives next match, it will be good for us, he wont need as many games to get back in form in PL.
  11. 6. Danny Drinkwater

    Welcome Danny. I think he is going to be useful additon and depth option to our squad, nevermind being english. However his quality, it says alot Leicester was looking for improvement over him for two years now in Silva. He is decent player, nothing more. I dont expect him to do anything beside basic, but he is reliable and used to PL, so he will hold his ground hopefuly. Still kudos for choosing us and accepting side role. But 35m pounds for a player thats neither already great nor has potential, IMO way too much. Yes english and all, but keep in mind City bought Delph for 8m two years ago for basicaly same reasons. Transfer makes sense, Danny is alright player, but that fee...plain awful. We put restrictions on basicaly every transfer these past few years, yet we have no problem forking 35m on Drinkwater.
  12. 21. Davide Zappacosta

    Looks realy happy Im realy looking forward to this, he is hardworking player, probably living his dream right now and under Conte, we can all benefit. Welcome Zappa
  13. Deadline Day!

    Tbh all in all this window wasnt bad at all, except for the fact we have realy short bench. But thats more because we sold and loaned too many players, not bought too few. However one thing, I was realy realy expecting a marquee signing. One. Doesnt have to be Hazard equivalent. Could be top striker, midfielder, wingback or even defender. Last year we had Hazard and Costa who truly made difference. Costa and his personality aside, he was world class on his day and real pain in the ass for opponents with great impact. I realy expected we will replace him with some undisputed quality. Our squad was already reliant on two players last season, despite all the team work, no one can deny it was Eden and Costa who provided extra quality. And most of us agreed even thats not enough, that we need one more. However now we are actualy down to just one; Hazard. Which is painful. Yes we can win without him and sometimes even play realy well (like vs Everton), but come on, everyone knows our level of play was on entire different scale when we had inform Eden and Costa last season between august-january. We are back to last season, hoping everything will click and everyone will have massive season, including Morata, Bakayoko, Zappacosta etc. We have advantage though in terms of hardwork, experience and coach that understands how to play to win. But this will only get us so far. Once manchesters pile up with more and more quality, they will outplay us. Maybe not this year but eventualy the gap will widen. Otherwise, a very decent window still.
  14. Deadline Day!

    I was somehow hoping we will at least buy someone quality to at least "try" to hide the weak areas in the team, ie Mahrez. That way we would have more depth in attack which would at least partly compensate fot lack of depth in midfield and wings. As goes for Zappacosta, not bad buy IMO. Tbh him or Ox, I think it will turn out even better for us, apart from the fact Ox is english. About Llorente, I was sure he is coming. It makes too much sense to have experienced target man and Eden even recommended Bats to find new club.
  15. Kylian Hazard

    We signed the wrong Kylian lol
