    This guy much like Luis just didnt work out here.
    But IMO he will turn serie a upside down if he ends there. And maybe even ends up better LB than Chilwell. Not for us, but in general.

    all hail Roman. Not many clubs have owner like him.
    It seemed bleak for a couple years, but he is back😀

    Same was with Blanc. Apparently a realy good manager, never got a new job...
    Rijkaard faded out spectaculary too.

    Thats false because I remember well board received much love for signing Kante. Given how many shit signings we made, yes it didnt happen often though.
    Look no board is perfect. There will be shit signing or two in every club. But take a look at the last 5 years or so and count how many players we bought actualy played realy valuable role and proved to be reliable long term choice, ie a smart move and how many flops or signings with zero planning what to do with them.
    Kepa was a flop. Morata was a flop. Baka flop. Wont even go with Drinkwater. Emerson didnt fill the expectations. Barkley was a weird signing too. Zappacosta pointless. Jorginho didnt reach expectations. Rudiger didnt reach expectations.
    Probably forgot a few others.
    Kante was great. Alonso for me, given the price was ok buy IMO. And then with Pulisic it started to improve again.
    I mean take a look at that era and check how many pointless signings there are. You cant tell if Baka will flop. But thats one player. We had 10 flops at least. Thats not bad luck, thats terrible board decisions.

    Yup pretty much this. She gets the praise when good players come...when its the bad ones its ohh but she is only a negotiatiator, a financial expert.
    But Marina isnt the problem per se. The problem is that she is second in command, and as such responsible for not just financials, but scouting, planning etc. And she is only expert in financials. Obviously she doesnt do scouting herself, but she is in charge of high level decisions along with Roman. If Cech has a suggestion in scouting, its definately not his call, but needs approval by a higher member; Marina or Roman (given Roman trusts Marina, its likely her decision). 
    Her negotiation skills are great. As is her financial knowledge. But she is second in command and has much much greater responsibility and power. And she doesnt have football knowledge like many second in command members at other clubs have. And thats the whole point. 
    You cant have someone with such limited expertise in charge of scouting decisions or team building. Or, if you have, then its her damn responsibility ffs.
    Lastly, everyone is creaming over this window when season didnt even start. Lets wait how these new players settle in, then we talk about how smart our summer was. Usualy its never good to change half of starting 11, but maybe Lamps does wonders.

    This signing came completely out of the blue.
     
    Welcome Kai

    I wait around all day incase we announce him and then as soon as I take an afternoon nap it happens and I miss it.
    😆😆😆
    LETS GOOOOO!
    I distinctly recall saying when we were first linked with him a couple of months ago that it would be impossible. With Barkley and RLC still here I'm still not sure how we've pulled this off! I figured we'd have to shed at least a couple of players before even considering making a move for Havertz. 
    What a ridiculous signing.

    So now we are speaking in english? My bad, I thought we were writing in english...
    If I gave you a mark for your responses, it would be unfair. But Pete will happily do it;

     
    And yes Slovenia is a very nice country, thanks. 
    Now if you want to be a bit more educated about footie from my country since you are so interested; NK Triglav is like Nottingham Forrest. Once they were good, now not so much.  Dont recommend to support them, they reached peak ages ago. You would get bored to death. But Olimpija and Maribor are "the" teams now, there is even extra spice of corruption to make it realy entertaining. You know Jan Oblak though, right? Or Luka Doncic to get you even more informed about what else we have in other sports, now it makes me wonder; is basketball in UK even a thing?
    While this was entertaining, it was a bit too easy and im getting bored. So better to end it now before mods get mad haha. Looking forward to your future arguments though😉
    Cheers and much love from Slovenia

    There were quite a few comments from you, so Im pretty sure you checked up on this forum quite regularly, but ok if you want to play that card.
    Picking on my language and country from where I am? Haha are you one of those entitled english pricks then? And so you know, there are many people who speak more understanding english than brits, but fair play you speak the language of a country where you were born better compared to a non-native speaker. Mad respect there brother. Hopefuly you dont sound like Harry Kane though, that would be a bummer.
    Also, you still didnt get the lightbulb thing, did you? 😀

    1.) You are incredibly fast in forming constructive replies, I see. I mean Kai transfer impressed me, but this is on another level. 
    2.) In your locker?  Who are you trying to impress mate? 😄
    3.) Please check 30 watt led lightbulb and maybe you will figure it out eventualy 😂 I dont even need to make a counter reply here, you just shot yourself in the leg. Talk about dimmer lol.

    Yeah poor Messi forced to being paid another 70m from a bankrupt club bc of a contract he voluntarily signed. 
    players are so entitled these days. It’s Barca who made him the player he is. 
  18. Muzchap liked a post in a topic by BlueLyon in Chelsea Transfer Pub   
    Well we also got 30m for Tibo, so the net we paid for Kepa was 40m.

    Actually I  wouldn’t mind if the move breaks down. He is a great player but a luxury one at that. I think the position he plays is one we have covered. Also we need to tweak our system a bit to accommodate him. 
    that being said the deal is done.

    If we dont sign a new GK, we will be talking about keepers the entire season mate.

    Haha I was not super excited about him either, but to point out stuff like how he talks, he must be stupid?
    Are we still in age when people with tattoos are considered crazy then? 
    No one should ever judge people by appearance. If for nothing else, for your own sake because underestimating others can put you in a very bad position.

    Im super hyped about this move. Rennes is realy cool club, developing young players. I was lowkey hoping they get Boga to improve squad for CL because he already played there. 
    This is brilliant for Boga and Rennes.

    So anyone who wants to be a scout for Chelsea can just become one without any experience? 🤔
    Yes Lollichon is more experienced, still he recommended Areola who isnt good enough. He is too error prone. So no he isnt some magical scouting talent.
    Also just because someone was a great player or is operating well in different field doesnt make him a great scout or a manager for that matter. 
    Take a look at Michael Edwards. Shite player. But man was in scouting since 2003. He worked for one of the first data tracking companies Prozone and pioneered new approach to search for top talent. Took years to perfect that and then ended in Pool. So yes experience definately plays a part today. Maybe it didnt years ago when you came to stadium and if you were once top player you recognized another one on the pitch. Today, times have changed. Too many factors.

    To me it makes most sense if Puli got #10, also for marketing reasons. That way Ziyech can get his fav #22. And Kai just came so whatever is left. Shouldnt be straight given #10. Hazard had to wait too. 
    Some people dont complain about numbers, some do. I remember Martial was pissed when they gave #9 to Lukaku.
