  1. 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...
  2. 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...
  3. The Conte Thread

    I meant in his younger years - under Arsene
  4. 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.
  5. Kalidou Koulibaly

    Should have got Ashley Williams for £10 million - decent stop gap
  6. 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 ???
  7. The English Football Thread

    Standard protocol ????
  8. Kalidou Koulibaly

    Should be renamed to Twatter - fuckin social media ruining the world one 'twat' at a time...
  9. Kalidou Koulibaly

    Actually PMT = Pre Manager Tension ???
  10. Moussa Sissoko

    As long as it's against Arsenal I don't mind ???
  11. Moussa Sissoko

    On his day (usually against us) he's a beast - good option no doubt
  12. Politics & Stuff

    No post invasion plan... Sounds a bit like the post Brexit plan ! I bet Chilcott is eager to write a new paper on that ???
  13. Leonardo Bonucci

    City are going strong and will probably blow 300 million this window... I don't see it's ever matching City's spending again... Stones is way too overpriced at £50 million - he didn't even get in a shit England team ??? Bonucci is decent - but again - £50 million - way too much for our board...
  14. Roman Abramovich

    Wow - he's now down to £6 billion - I'm sure before the recession in 2008 he was at £11 billion I guess the divorce and falling energy prices have hit him hard, no wonder we're not making massive signings
  15. 10. Eden Hazard

    Lmao £35 million and Morata - fuck off they paid €100 million for Bale - Hazard is at least the same price - no way Morata is worth more than £20 million... Real Madrid can GTF (get tae fuck)
  16. Politics & Stuff

    Anybody who thinks 'Leave' is a good thing needs to go and get an education Billions wiped off the economy already - scaremongering huh? A decent Prime Minister with the concept of balancing the books is ousted Expect huge job losses and a big recession ahead - one of the top 5 economies in the world decimated today. Bravo...
  17. The Conte Thread

    Selfishly - I want him to come home early, but it might knock his confidence - it's a tough call
  18. The Conte Thread

    Groan. Can we not live for the future instead of the past? What's done is done, we can only change the future and Conte is the choice - a decent choice it looks like. Lets hope the board backs him in the transfer market
  19. Alvaro Morata

    LMFAO ????
  20. Politics & Stuff

    Hey Choulo, i think the key word here is 'propaganda' - for example the Iraq war - Iraq was painted as a hotbed of extremists running around with WMDs - so the popular opinion thanks to media bias and propaganda was - we need to get them, before they get us! this was a justification many, many innocent people were killed - on a 'basis' that never existed however - do you think the British media ever reported a 'stray' bomb that blew up a hospital? No, they simply reported the victories. The quote about history only being written by the victors is extremely apt and was still true in the early 00's. I think the population know there are casualties (innocent) during war, but it's somehow socially acceptable not to mention it because the populace is fed the great lie of 'it's for your own benefit' control the media and you essentially control the hearts and minds of the people. This is why the Brexit debate is so toxic as both camps have media control - you would imagine that this would be a beneficial situation, however, sadly it is not. What passes as 'journalism' now is essentially over-hyped click bait and spurious half truths or complete lies being widely accepted, it's almost comical that people 'have' to believe the media, as it absolves them of guilt from previous atrocities carried out for their benefit. Only now will you find a groundswell of opinion that the Iraq war was stupid and that the lie about WMD was true - but it has taken years for this to seep into the collective conscious.... It's a real shame that propaganda and media manipulation by a few has such drastic worldwide ramifications. The world is running in a devolutionary state - education is typically seen as less cool and people want to be fed answers rather than ask questions and explore alternative hypothesis. I do wonder how this will end and makes me keep second guessing whether I should bring a child into this world. Sadly - in my heart - I know that a global conflict is less than 20 years away - I just know that things are on the precipice at the moment across the globe, the media is twisting and distorting facts - Right Wing Extremist movements are on the rise in every nation fighting a false battle - nothing good comes from ignorance and small mindedness anyway, wow went off topic there sorry for the long post
  21. Politics & Stuff

    I use this rationale - regardless of the ethnicity of the perpetrator. The colour of your skin or your religion is irrelevant - if you mean to kill innocent people to try and get your beliefs across, your beliefs are wrong. That's my view on it. I never agreed with the IRA - they blew up my cousins in Ireland, I never agreed with the Ulster Freedom Fighters, I don't agree with any terrorism. Killing in the name of a God is a hypocrisy beyond belief. Killing a person because they killed a family member I get - that's retribution plain and simple, but in the name of God? Nope! This is why I'm happy being an aethiest. I think on the last census my religion was actually Jedi ?
  22. Politics & Stuff

    Mate - let me start by saying, one bad apple is not representative of the whole. West Yorkshire has a very diverse culture - this was one man acting like an idiot and sadly now, all MPs will be tasked with a security detail. The moral decline in Britain is staggering - in my lifetime (nearly 40 years) - I have seen the Police armed with nothing but a truncheon, now equipped with guns - that would have been unthinkable 20 years ago. The world has become a bitter and twisted place and sadly the Internet holds a big role in it. For all the good the Internet has provided, it has sadly given a voice to people with less than sane ideas - they can be whipped into a frenzy and indulge in their craziness 24x7x365 i feel for her family However, I don't expect further action along the lines you allude too - Britain has and will continue to work tirelessly to ensure full integration of all ethnicities. The easisest thing to remember is children - they have no bias or agenda at a young age and they ignore skin colour, that's the future right there! It's only the old prejudices that hold things back - those will be eradicated soon as the surviving prejudice holders die out.
  23. Antonio Candreva

    I like him and would take him in a heartbeat Good engine, great crossing, great tackling and positioning what an upgrade over Ivanovic ?
  24. The International Football Thread

    What happened didn't see it? Edit found it https://www.theguardian.com/football/2016/jun/09/venezuela-uruguay-copa-america-quarter-finals
  25. Nemanja Matic

    Seriously? He would play for the dude that subbed him on, then off again minutes later... Yeah - I wish I worked at the Sun - what do they have? A wheel of news - spin for club, spin for player, create rumour... Just a joke - it's worse than this Brexit shit
