  1. Tanguy Ndombele

    A bit inconsistent for now, but extremely promising, very allround player. If we cant get Kovacic on permament, Ndombele should be priority (or Neves)
  2. Krzysztof Piatek

    He plays Juve, Milan, Inter and Napoli in next 20 days. Even if he bangs a goal against each, it wont matter that much because right now he is in crazy form and no one knows how will he recover when he hits a bust for few games (and he will like any other striker). But as of now, he scored against some realy realy average teams and that means almost next to nothing. Let him have a full season, then we shall see. If the price is anything above 50m in summer, avoid in big circle. Not worth the risk for a player with just one good season (Belotti, SMS are good examples).
  3. Sarri But Not Sarri Thread

    Such a honest and humble man.
  4. Luke Shaw

    He is english and he has some potential, but can he actualy become top full back? He is injury prone and doesnt seem to be consistent enough. He is like lb version of Barkley, someone who is good but not realy great; ie a rotation option. If we go for another LB it better be some top class prospect or already established player. Even on free, it might be a no brainer yeah, but that means if we get Shaw, we wont get another LB and we are stuck with 3! LBs, but neither is real quality.
  5. Frank Lampard

    The old guard
  6. 10. Eden Hazard

    The way I see it is Hazard was always dreaming about Real since being a kid, but all these years at Chelsea have grown feelings toward the club that are bigger than he thought and now he is sorta torn between moving and staying. I hope he stays but if he goes, everyone will understand. Chelsea would lose a massive player though.
  7. 1. Kepa Arrizabalaga

    IMO its just his development. He has been here for few months and is still a kid himself. Im sure he will get better with time. For now I totaly understand he wont be the most vocal person on field. But he is calm which is important. He came for record fee and tbh he is handling that tag brilliantly, I thought the pressure will get to him, but he was ice cold since that first interview when he signed. I just have good feeling about him. Coming from smaller club, the fee we paid for him, and that giant contract he was willing to sign give me alot of optimism he will stick here for the long run because he wants to and respects the lenghts the club went to sign him. Thats completely opposite to Tibo, his success in Madrid and family had set him to return there one day, despite Chelsea giving everything to accomodate him. Tibo came (or say returned) here as a star while Kepa is star in the making and if we are the ones to develop him, he will be alot more loyal. Thats why its always better to sign players from good, but not best teams. Torres, Sheva, Morata,...they were already Pool, Milano, Madrid bound. There are rare situations when players coming from big teams overcome their former team and become fan favourites like Makelele or Ashley Cole. Im sure Kepa will always have Bilbao in his heart, but he never had a connection to a big club before. Chelsea could be one and thats why I have good feeling about him, if he continues to improve as GK, Im certain he will end up as one of the Chelsea next generation greats
  8. 8. Ross Barkley

    I feel both Barkley and RLC should have 2-3 full seasons in some middle table clubs and then they would become very good players. But here under heavy pressure and no regular playtime, I can see them stagnate. They lack that decisive edge, consistency, end product and some mental strenght, all that will come from playing week in week out.
  9. Chelsea 1-0 Videoton

    Two games against shit opposition and we only managed to scrap 1:0 both times. Next one is bate, another average team. I expected we will roll over the teams in this group 3:0 at least, regardless of our form. But oh well, two wins and RLC got some minutes, so its not that bad. Our attackers without Eden are poor too, I wish CHO gets a game or two soon. It would be amazing for his development and surely we can afford it, I mean there is no chance we end this group in 3rd or 4th place.
  10. 29. Álvaro Morata

    With run of games, Emerson would definately improve alot. He was better than Alonso in italy by quitr a bit when both played week in week out. The ONLY reason why Alonso is playing in first 11 is his goal scoring ability which cant be underestimated. Kind of a character too, so I like him. But he is slow as feck and thats the big issue because there is highway behind him and he never manages to run at same pace as Eden or Willian when we attack which clearly shows how one dimensional our attacks are sometimes. Alonso can score indeed, but when it comes to actual offensive play, both Alonso and Azpi are average at best.
  11. 1. Kepa Arrizabalaga

    I like the lad alot so far. Quality wise, Tibo was good, but there was always something in air not right about him, you could never imagine him being a legend here tbh. Early days for Kepa, but he definately has a potential to become our legend in the future. He has proper character and I love that about the players.
  12. 10. Eden Hazard

    Hazard to Sturridge after match: "It was not a bad goal, not bad...but do it next week, not now"
  13. Daniele Rugani

    I dont see the hype about him anyway. If there is a CB from serie a that we should buy if we are looking, its Skriniar.
  14. 17. Mateo Kovacic

    The numbers regarding Drinkwater are probably some of the absolute worst dealings that our board has done in the last 20 years. 40m fee and 100k per month, for someone everyone knew wasnt good enough to play here are beyond any explanation, english or not. You have bunch of players who could fit that spot, for third of what we forked on Drinks. Bakayoko was hyped up talent and it made sense to pay 40m then. But Drinkwater, thats the deal our board should be paying from their own pockets for such a fuck up. I know football is unpredictable and you never know how things will turn out. Not a single board is perfect in their dealings, but our board had so many fuck ups in the past few years that this isnt coincidence or ''who could predict?'' anymore. KDB, Lukaku, Salah sales, bunch of wasted buys, all the failed negotiations and there is big big chance RLC and Christensen will leave soon who will both end up very very decent players at least. Get a damn person who actualy knows football business. Thanks to Conte and Sarri we are actualy managing fine considering everything.
  15. Michy Batshuayi

    Batshuayi is the first player in 21st century to score a goal in PL, Ligue 1, Bundesliga and La Liga. Next year, a loan to Serie A
