  1. General Transfer Talk

    you know... Neymar hasn't unpacked yet ... 😁
  2. Virgil Van Dijk

    yeah this is a strange one. Isn't Christensen as "proven" as VVD and isn't VVD incredibly injury prone esp considering the asking price?! Chelsea need to learn to speak with the press and dismiss unfounded rumors. This club is so weird during the transfer window...
  3. Romelu Lukaku

    if that's true, then the management at the club is more incompetent than I thought. Coaches an even managers are temporary, but the club *must* have a long-term plan.
  4. Nemanja Matic

    well they did sign fellaini and Herrera before, both of witch will be sitting on the bench for Matic. I honestly think our issue here is the definition of "impact." They already had Pogba, so they already have a younger and better Fabregas to pull the strings in the middle. What they needed was a physical presence with enough quality to contribute to the team. That's Matic all right. The impressive thing about Matic's performance wasn't really about Matic himself... Pogba had one of the best games since joining United and that's NOT a good sign.
  5. 19. Diego Costa

    In a situation like this, and for a club like Chelsea, I'd say making a statement and controlling players is far more important than money (because it can also lead to more money down the road). I say let him rot, which will teach a lesson to other players in the squad (don't think Costa can actually learn anything).
  6. Nemanja Matic

    Hyperboles aside, Matic is a very good player. An important player in not one, but 2 PL wins. Perhaps it's personal preferences in the way of reason because I cannot possible agree with the notion that Matic is an only decent, or bad player, for example. Especially when all evidence (pick any one) points otherwise. Which bears the question: are we too nice to other top PL clubs (our opponents)? We keep selling them our good players, but I don't see any of their good players coming our way.
  7. Romelu Lukaku

    Nothing unexpected as we know he has goals in him. We wanted a more technical striker and we got him. The strange thing remains the fact Lukaku had no shot, no opportunity at chelsea. In a "proper" corporation, there would be a commission to investigate what happened there. What caused the loss of funds, because from a monetary perspective, it costed the club big time.
  8. 22. Willian

    I'm not a big Willian fan but football does not take place in a vacuum. Looked like one of the few pulling his own weight today. funny how options are... Mata is one player I do not miss at all and have not been impressed by him at united.
  9. Spurs v Chelsea

    You might as well affirm that this is going to the starting XI (or very close to it). You know, considering the squad situation.
  10. 9. Álvaro Morata

    Looks like the aerial threat we've been missing for quite some time... looking good indeed!
  11. 4. Cesc Fàbregas

    Have to say I'm not surprised by his performance today. He's a bit overrated around here.
  12. Chelsea - Burnley

    Ref needlessly ruining the game aside, I still think there have been pretty unacceptable individual performances in the first half. Bats, kante, fab, and esp Luiz come to mind. 2 goals conceded where luiz was ball watching and marking no one.
  13. The English Football Thread

    heh Leicester did not look like winners even when they were winning... Arsenal, defensive mistakes aside (that's just being arsenal), were far more dominating than the scoreline would suggest. Thought Leicester were really poor to be honest and panicky at moments just kicking the ball upfield.
  14. Danny Drinkwater

    Hah said nothing about 30 million
  15. Danny Drinkwater

    I happen to agree with the club that Drinkwater is twice the player than any of youngster who left or stayed. However, it is not a binary decision. We don't have to go with Drinkwater OR chalobah... there is a sea of choice between those two. in building the squad as well... for example: instead of one drinkwater, get 2-3 mids, and also keep the youngsters, etc. Perhaps folks are complaining, and perhaps rightly so, that the club is too slow in "building the squad" never mind signing players. And we end up in tough situation having to settle. I'd add the club is not creative enough in building the squad. If we want to compete with the likes of City something's gotta give: we either spend the same amount of money or we get creative. We do neither.
