  1. Thibaut Courtois

    Maybe it's because he's young and entitled. I'm sure he will mature and will benefit from Conte, like he did at Atletico. He needs to let his football do the talking - but the same could be said of many of our players.
  2. The Conte Thread

    Anybody complaining about Conte already is delusional plain and simple. We were dogshit last season - fact we are now Good/Average - that's a huge leap! If he can do the same again next season - we will be in a great place! this season is al about Top4 - that's our aim - to expect anything more is just crazy. Conte is doing a decent job - International breaks always fuck up our momentum. Onwards and upwards!
  3. The Conte Thread

    Why do you think he joined City? He's not a stupid bloke - City needed a few signings to be a really great team. Chelsea needed at least 5-6 signings and the team individually is below that of City Our team struggles with passing and moving - we are slow and static - we have no desire to make angles and give the person on the ball options. This will improve - but it takes time and a change of personnel - we need Cahil and Iva dropped, Azpi on the right and new guy (again) on left we need Cesc + Kante in midfield. As for today - their goal was a foul on Cahil - no surprise Marriner didn't see it - easily one of the most useless refs around we should have scored 4-5 - it has been a perennial problem. Hazard, Willian & Oscar do not score anywhere near enough goals. The improvements will be slow and painful - but as long as we are improving I'm happy.
  4. General Transfer Talk

    I call bullshit Fabregas is the only player we have with vision - selling him would be a huge mistake in Jan... Unless they can bring in a quality number 10 in the same window and a midfielder to sit alongside Kante (unless Matic, the real Matic, finally decides to turn up)
  5. Loïc Rémy

    Darren Anderton was the one I remember most
  6. Nathaniel Chalobah

    The gulf between youth and senior is just too great - there has to be a better system, but for now we are stuck with what is on offer. Loans are definitely the only way to really test a player right now. I agree with your analysis - I think it's just the romance of it that makes people over-appreciate the players ability. I have no doubt though that we will produce a couple of outstanding players.
  7. Kevin de Bruyne

    Him and Silva rotated the No.10 position jesus - why we sold him I will never know
  8. Frank Lampard

    I still love Frank - sure he made a mistake - but who hasn't - that boy played his socks off for us season in season out - we still haven't replaced him and likely never will - a true one in a lifetime player and thank fuck we had him
  9. The English Football Thread

    Jesus I live in Peterborough - can't believe so many fans arrested ! I think it was the Millwall game Actually - I can, they aren't the brightest screws in the box Can't believe we are in the CL place - bet Arsenal fans are pissed off ???
  10. The Mourinho Thread

    Yeah Jose is for Jose - everybody else can fuck off - that's just him His personality has definitely changed and he's more bitter now - he's like Emperor Palpatine - the dark side is consuming him...
  11. 3. Marcos Alonso

    So much negativity - give the lad a chance having a player in position will be a massive bonus (The best position is Iva on the bench) You can't really compare his previous performances - there's no guarantees in football - people probably thought the same about Kante before last season - you just never know.. Look at Fonte - bang average then finds some good form has a decent euros and press are loving him.. Fickle business football! We just need to be patient and give the lad a chance !
  12. 30. David Luiz

    The more this sinks in the happier I am we need some passion and fight in the team - not the limp performances of last season all of our defenders have a mistake in them - as do all other teams defenders - I just have a feeling this time round he will be a little more polished. I'm definitely looking forward to him and Zouma in defence - two big crazy characters Well done to all involved for rescuing the transfer window - decent signings, decent money - impressed - I know I have been massively critical - but fair's fair - I was wrong and should have had more belief, I think last season jaded me more than I care to admit! Lets keep the pressure up on those Northern Monkeys and if the draw - we could be top after next game Roll on!!! p.s. Please try to cheer up forum - last year is gone, look to the future
  13. The Conte Thread

    To be fair Watford and WH are hardly yardsticks - WH are dire with 3-4 of their decent players missing... Our defence against City is what worries me - they will tear us open ivanovic is either CB or on the bench - he's just not quick enough now for FB position and is always caught in the wrong place. Cahil is also shaky, so Iva and Terry until Zouma returns....
  14. Kalidou Koulibaly

    Is this still going on? Close the thread - not coming - end of...
  15. James Rodríguez

    History would have this nailed on over a defender of any worth ???
  16. 11. Pedro Rodríguez

    Get him gone - ASAP - bang average player
  17. The English Football Thread

    Actually - all football in the UK is ultimately governed by the Football Association - even amateur pub football. It is ridiculous and 4 years is a long time when people are 'growing up' Sour grapes from the scousers
  18. The Conte Thread

    No offence but even Stevie Wonder can see we need defenders Prices are already doubled and tripled to previous seasons - it's just how it will be from now on, the sooner youth starts to get a game, the better
  19. General Transfer Talk

    The whole world is losing money... Seriously? No wonder we get called 'plastic' with comments like that... The guy is building a stadium, has pumped nearly a billion into the club and because he hasn't secured your FM/FIFA targets - he's lost interest and should sell out? I cannot honestly believe what I am reading - yes I sometimes get annoyed with the club and the way it is run, but I understand and appreciate how close we were to not being a club. I think you need a history lesson to gauge some perspective. I would rather promote our Acadamy players than pay £50 million for above average players. If that means a few seasons without trophies whilst we get our nice conveyor belt of youth working, then so be it. we are sitting on a gold mine of young players - who now might get a chance because of the exorbitant prices in the market - who'd have thought this would have been the catalyst? FFP was supposed to - but that backfired! Good ole Freakanomics...
  20. Christian Benteke

    Average player? You're having a laugh surely? Yes, he was shit at Liverpool but at Villa he was a very good player. He has a proven scoring record in the Prem. I would have had him here at that money...
  21. The Conte Thread

    I meant in his younger years - under Arsene
  22. The Conte Thread

    I don't think Costa is better than Anelka. Anelka came to us in his twilight - in his prime he was an amazing player - he just had a severe attitude problem which hampered his career.
  23. Kalidou Koulibaly

    Should have got Ashley Williams for £10 million - decent stop gap
  24. Riyad Mahrez

    Thought I'd repost this.... I wonder how it works: Board: So have you identified the players we need? Manager: Yes, we need a few defenders and a midfielder urgently Board: Ok Manager: Great, here's my list... (Time passes) Board: Great news! Those players you wanted, well forget about them, but here's a Striker!!! Manager: WTF!!! Board: Also, we have sanctioned a move for a new winger... This sees to be the Chelsea way .... Hazard on the left and Mahrez on the right would be amazing, don't get me wrong - but it's defence and midfield where we struggle, we don't have a fluid transition from defence to attack, we need at least a LB as Baba still seems out of favour as well as a CB and maybe Dave isn't the ideal player for us anymore... Just seems crazy that every season for the past 5 or 6 seasons we've signed at least 1 winger - when other areas need more attention... that at said the rumour is likely bollox ???
  25. Paul Pogba

    Aye and £210k week there's some Addons as well - taking it to £108 million quite a few Utd fans seem to be shitting it that Citeh will swoop in, match the offer and £300k week!!! i don't see it - don't think he is a Pep player - there's only one ego allowed at Citeh ???
