  1. Andy Carroll

    He better be loads better than Carroll if he's gonna occupy an import spot on the nearly tapped allocation.
  2. Andy Carroll

    Coutinho was moved because he was expendable. Why stop at dzeko? Lewandowski is also a good aerial threat.
  3. Andy Carroll

    If you really think Roma is gonna sell their best striker in January you really need to stop play football manager.
  4. Emerson Palmieri

    Emerson Palmieri's agent on Chelsea interest: “There’s still nothing certain, we are in a stage of discussion and evaluations,” #CFC Palmieri's agent asked if the Chelsea move is a real possibility: "Of course yes, absolutely, the two clubs are now talking, we’ll see if it will be successful." (via Sport witness) #CFC Palmieri's agent asked if he has the wish to play under Antonio Conte: “Obviously yes, it would be a dream. Conte is a top manager, one of the best and most successful in the world.” #CFC
  5. Emerson Palmieri

    I disagree. And who is to say Emerson is crap? Unproven at this level but definitely not crap based on last years numbers.

    Andy Carroll aside there just isn't a lot of value in the market these days. As much as I want to see Chelsea break the bank and bring in an impact player, the truth of the matter is the market has gone completely mad and we are refusing to play in it. Coutinho just went to Barca for like 150m??? That is INSANE. Chelsea have been held ransom for far too long and so many people out there are well overrated. 180m for Sanchez? Maybe 3yrs ago but now? We just have to be patient, Emerson pre injury was precisely what we are looking for at LWB. If he is fully recovered this could be a real coup, if he isn't 25m isn't really gonna hurt us all that much and his wage demands won't be astronomical either. I want Sandro but not for the reported fees being bandied about.
  7. Andy Carroll

    I agree with everything except the bit about keeping Zouma, Abraham and RLC. All of them needed to go on loan and play A LOT. The club have failed to back three straight title winning managers. Carlo wasn't backed after 2010, mourinho after 2015 and now Conte. The problem isn't the manager, it's the policy the club have implemented. Money in = money out, meaning top players must be sold for top players to be brought in. Debruyne and Lukaku were essentially turned into Cesc and Diego. Diego was sold for Morata. We are clearly trying to lower the average age of the club with lesser known players with potential. The likes of Batshuyai, Bakayoko, rudiger, Ampadu weren't signed with today in mind, they were bought on a gamble that they would come good in a couple years. My belief is all of them will come good and make an impact in the team. As for the likes of Drinkwater, Zappacosta, Barkley and potentially Carroll??? This is where the board have lost me.... well not so much Barkley because he is talented but not very bright. The other names were brought in to round out the squad, none of these players are close to the calibre we are used to at the club. No potential, no actual role, just semi warm bodies. This is why we look like a club with no ambition. The manager asks for a LWB in Sandro we get Zappacosta. The manager asks for tolisso we get Drinkwater... and I know we are close to tapped on non association trained players but come on! The champions need to do better than this in terms of recruiting players that suit our presumed level. Are we a top 10 team in world football? Is that ambition being matched at the board level? Certainly not when we get linked with the likes of Andy Carroll when we desperately need a striker.

  9. Andy Carroll

    The only donkey around here is you and your wack posts. None of this has anything to do with Conte, it's been like this since 2013... if you look at our signings since then you will get a clear picture of who the donkey's are, donkey.

    I don't even know much about this guy and I still would prefer him to Carroll. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Andy Carroll

    Says something about the club's ambition. Andy Carroll is a player we all laughed at when Liverpool bought him for 35m. My oh my how the mighty have fallen! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. General Transfer Talk

    The difference is the value in the market, I just don't think it exists now.
  13. General Transfer Talk

    I did. I'm not one for the hype machine. Mbappe might become a fantastic player but no way in hell is he worth 163m and further he hasn't done anything to justify he's a top 10 player for me. Potential? Sure. Pogba is way overrated and so is his enormous contract and wage packet. If you take away the hype is he really that great? Debatable I guess.
  14. General Transfer Talk

    I got a serious question here, it's is there actual value in the transfer market anymore? I mean look at the sums of money being thrown around for slightly above average players??? VanDijk? Lukaku?? Pogba??? Mbappe??? I'm hearing Coutinho will go for 100m too? It's just madness! I'm struggling to find a decent price for anyone so maybe the best thing for Chelsea to do is exactly what we've been doing? Grabbing a few younger, less hyped players like Bakayoko, like Ampadu, like maybe Bailey, and allow Conte(who I think is the best manager in the world at managing a budgetary squad) do his thing. I just don't want to look like Utd... a team that spend loads of cash and could have gotten more with lesser names. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. The Conte Thread

    If he stays for the next couple years, Conte will prove to be a legendary manager. He is without doubt in my mind the best budgetary manager in the world. And with the current predicament of money in equalling money out, Conte is without question the guy we need to manage the expectations. He's done it at Juve, Italy and now here, shoestring budgets and he's got the team playing well. Kudos to the Don! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
