  1. Alexis Sanchez

    After the final next week, we need to go all out for Sanchez. Arsenal finished outside top 4. We will have a lot of money available from the Oscar and Costa(?) sales plus prize money for winning league. I really like Pedro and Willian but Sanchez is on Hazard's level and if we want to compete with very best, sometimes you have to go out and get the very best. His stats this season are bloody amazing. Goals and assists and rarely gets injured as well. I would bid up to £70m if I had the choice. Don't get much world class players available and if we put in a mammoth bid, they may have no choice.
  2. 23. Michy Batshuayi

    The last few games including today has probably done him enough to earn his place in the squad next season and probably and well possibly as second striker too. Really happy that let's face it after a tough season for him, he has finished on a really good note. 4 goals in his last 3 games and scored the one that won us the title. Well done Bats!
  3. 13. Thibaut Courtois

    And golden gloves goes to Courtois!
  4. Alexis Sanchez

    Well he is in double figures with assists. 23 league goals and 10 league assists. Fantastic tbh. He is one of the best players in league but imo seems underrated. Can't believe he did not get in tea of the year and when you consider his stats ands how he has carried Arsenal this season, he does not get recognition he deserves imo. We should go all out for him. Although I think Hazard is slightly better, there is not much difference but Sanchez is certainly a lot more potent in front of goal.
  5. West Brom 0-1 Chelsea

    Who would have guessed we would have won the title after losing to Arsenal 3-0 and that was 3 games without a win and we were then 8 points behind City. Now we find ourselves 18 points ahead of them and 22 ahead of United. Majority of people thought the two clubs competing for the title would be out of the two PL clubs. But Conte brought in that 3-4-3 which really changed our fortunes and we went on that magnificent run. Every player in the squad has been worth their value. Kante, Hazard, Costa standout. However Luiz, Alonso, Moses and Azpi also have been excellent. Azpi is his usual consistent self however with all the slack Luiz got before beginning of season, he prob has been the best CB in league this season while Alonso is quite an unsung here. Been brilliant at LWB and contributed 6 goals which his fantastic. Moses too who a lot of people would have assumed his Chelsea career was done has been a big hit in that RWB formation. Also so ironic that other managers are replicating our formations now. Guess that is even more of a compliment to the job Conte has done. Congrats to team, fans and everyone connected with Chelsea. Champions
  6. 4. Cesc Fàbregas

    http://www.skysports.com/football/news/11668/10870104/cesc-fabregas-given-assist-for-chelsea-in-middlesbrough-win-after-opta-review And rightly bloody so.
  7. 3. Marcos Alonso

    Another sensational game he was brilliant. Traore was the only player I was worried about from that team and he marginalised the threat by Traore and going forward was such a threat. He lost Traore so much times and could of had a hattrick. I don't know if the goal will be taken away from him but to have 5/6 goals for a LWB is brilliant. An unsung hero and another marvellous piece of business done by Conte. Certainly has been worth the money and said it before but he should have definitely been in that team of the year ahead of Rose.
  8. Chelsea 3-0 Middlesbrough

    Brilliant win! Showed no mercy and no complacency tonight. This is what Conte has added to the team. Makes sure we put in 100% every game. Fabregas was brilliant. 2 assists and could of had more. Every time he got the ball, you knew he was going to do something. To get into double figures despite not having much starts is a phenomenal achievement. Imagine how much he would have if he was starting games. We need to keep him next season. All the CM we been linked with have similar traits to Kante but there is not one player who we could replace Fabregas with if he were to leave. Alonso was brilliant tonight too. Marginalised the threat by Traore and was such a threat offensively. He could of had a bloody hattrick. Matic apart from 1 dodgy pass was class tonight as well. Azpi as usual was his brilliant self, as was Luiz and Cahill who were top notch as well. Sounding a bit greedy here but my two criticisms from tonight would be regarding Costa and Hazard. Costa scored and was decent but he ruins way too much moves. The amount of times he ruined an attack with a pass or trying to get past someone tonight was so frustrating. But he got to 20 league goals. It is just that we could of had more if he played to his best. The other one is Hazard. I thought he had a good game and I can understand him wanted to conserve himself a bit as we had the game wrapped from first minute really but I wish he had the mentality where he thinks to himself I am on 15 goals and just 5 behind to reach 20 for season. Can I push myself and get to 20 goals for the season with 4 games to play but he just did not. I mean we all know he cares about the team foremost then individual accolades but he could have really torn them apart if he wanted to and I was hoping he got a couple goals tonight because he has the ability to get to 20 plus goals. Anyway, just a small gripe like I said. The positives hugely override the negatives and look 1 win away. KTBFFH!
  9. Lucas Piazón

    Sessegnon is not going to join us. If he does leave will most likely be to Liverpool imo. The only benefit of him coming here would be for monetary reasons.
  10. Tammy Abraham

    Yes, true but that is excessive. I mean giving him even around £15k a week when he signed that first contract is not bad because he is unproven and that is still a lot of money to hand a young player. I would be shocked if he was on the £25,000 a week as being stated. Because when this disagreement was going on between Solanke and the club I read that he was currently on around £8,000 a week and Solanke has before this season been ahead in ranking order than Abraham so find that hard to believe. Abraham from what I remember signed his last contract 2 years ago. There is no way we would have given him that much unless there was some contract he signed during the start of the season or pre-season where he signed a bumper wage.
  11. Tammy Abraham

    Loads of reports saying we are going to double his wages from £25,000 to £50,000. Surely he can't be on £25,000 a week already. Must be doubling from £12,500 to £25,000 but everything I have read states we will double his existing wages from £25,000 to £50,000 a week. If this is true, how the hell are we paying a player that much who had barely had a kick of professional football before the start of the season. If true, our young players are really pampered on another level.
  12. Bertrand Traoré

    In a one off final anything can happen. United need to get past Celta first too and that will not be easy.
  13. Bertrand Traoré

    Was sensational tonight. Scored 2 and assisted 1 and was a menace all game with his trickery and dribbling. He just needs to deliver on a consistent basis because there is so much potential there. Anyway surely his performance tonight has done enough to earn them a place in the EL final and hopefully they win it too. That is who I am backing. Well played Traore
  14. Lewis Baker

    Surprised there is no thread for Baker on the youth team profiles. 2nd year scholar and is a permanent fixture in the U21 side. Excellent with both feet, like Cazorla. Has scored quite a few this season. Highly regarded at the club and a very versatile player. Should be one for the future. A loan move beckons for him soon I reckon. Has improved massively this season and has a made a step up to reserve team football. You will not know which foot he is
  15. Everton 0-3 Chelsea

    So true. The amount of long ranged-distance goals we have scored against Everton is amazing. Some real spectacular goals. From Ballack to Lamps, Drogba, Matic, Pedro. Some really top goals
  16. 6. Nathan Aké

    Would be very surprised if Ake did this. One, he was born and raised in Holland and 2 he stands a very good chance of being part of that defence in the future. Especially if he can nail down a position at us or elsewhere. He has got the playing characteristics they like for a CB too. No offence to Boga, but he probably realised he has a better chance of representing Ivory Coast than France as he was even missing out on their U21 squad.
  17. FA Youth Cup thread

    Youngest player in the team at 16 but absolutely amazing. His dribbling ability is fantastic. Him and Sterling are always ones who standout for me when I watch our U18.
  18. 19. Diego Costa

    Was frustrating but so good at the same time. Nice to see him back scoring again and finally getting more than 1 goal in a game since our 4th game against Swansea I believe. His last goal was just outstanding and it is so good to see the passion he showed when he scored. Those goals meant a lot to him and even if he wants to leave, as long as he plays his heart out till the end of the season, I am happy. Diego is back!
  19. Chelsea 4-2 Southampton

    Hazard been star man again but once again he is too nice and needs to be more selfish. He wants Costa to score so much that he tries to pass for him so much times when he can take it on his own and try score. Really frustrating because he is just way too un-selfish. He passes way too much when he has so much options to shoot and take the game by himself.
  20. Chelsea 4-2 Southampton

    As good as Moses has been at RWB for us this season, he still does not know how to take a throw-in. Every game he probably takes at least 1 foul throw. He needs practising on this on the training ground because it concedes needless possession.
  21. 7. N'Golo Kante

    I actually meant to write that post few hours before I posted that but Kante intercepted that too
  22. 7. N'Golo Kante

    Rumours going around that the award was going to go to Hazard but Kante intercepted it
  23. Chelsea 4-2 Spurs

    He prob is fed up the amount of times over the last few months that Costa has ruined one of his moves he has set up and it is not even an exaggeration the amount of times Hazard has done something magical, only for Costa to fuck up the move.
  24. 23. Michy Batshuayi

    His hold up play was terrific yesterday. He managed to set up so much counters and win us possession and free kicks with his play yesterday. Considering he has barely played and was coming into a game like that, he can be proud of how he performed. It is a shame because he won't get much chances to keep that momentum going and he prob will revert back to the bench.
  25. 30. David Luiz

    Would not take another CB over this guy. He is just brilliant. Even he is prone to the odd error like any other CB is because they are human, what he brings is priceless. Wins his duels, has a lot of pace for a CB, prob best vision/passing ability for a CB, scores the odd spectacular goal and just leads by example. He don't have the same hype for POTY like Kante and Hazard does, but he is certainly up there. Been magnificent this season and shut up a lot of people. I remember after we lost to Liverpool 2-1 at the Bridge in September and post-match when they have their usual discussion, Carragher and co were stating Luiz was a panic signing, was not Conte's signing and he won't be first choice once JT is back etc. Bla bla bla Now look few months later. Best CB in league. To Carragher's credit, I am sure he has owned up and admitted he has been proven wrong and even stated himself Luiz could be POTY so respect that but hindsight is just a funny thing.
