  1. Jeremie Boga

    This is the problem for every manager in charge of Chelsea. Do you trust the youngster and play him (& risk being fired) or do you loan him out and hope he develops into something special (e.g. Courtois, Christensen, even Lukaku / De Bruyne to some extent)?
  2. Jeremie Boga

    It's not a meaningless friendly if you're trying to earn a spot on the bench for the upcoming season. His movement, dribbling and physical tools were there for all to see. Hopefully he can improve his decision-making..otherwise I see shades of Kakuta.
  3. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain

    Hopefully Arsenal agree to a deal & return the favor for giving them our legendary keeper!
  4. Tammy Abraham

    Hope Tammy lights it up for Swansea this season We could use another quality homegrown player next season!
  5. Kyle Scott

    He looks like a Championship-level player who should thrive in a smaller club with less expectations. I don't see any special qualities in him.
  6. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang

    If we don't get Auba or Belotti to lead the line, is our squad good enough to finish top 4 this season?
  7. Alvaro Morata

    Is their actually proof that Lukaku wanted to join us in this transfer window...because I don't recall him saying anything about Chelsea, he just wanted to step up in his career, wanted to play for a top club. If I remember correctly, he mentioned something like 'B**S***' when he was linked to Chelsea...so I'm guessing he knew United were in for him, they were probably just trying to keep things under wraps whilst the Rooney deal got finalized.
  8. Alvaro Morata

    To be fair, maybe the board is hesitant on spending such a big amount on one player (e.g. if you look at all the players we've been linked with, apart from Alex Sandro, every other rumor/bid has been well below 45 million...probably the reason why United got Lukaku instead of us). I'll be interested to see who we sign as Belotti seems to prefer Milan and there hasn't been any real evidence of us bidding for Aubameyang (even though their CEO is 'waiting' for offers)
  9. Loïc Rémy

    Well if no-one ends up signing him...he can stick around as our 3rd choice striker
  10. Riyad Mahrez

    I guess the question is: Will Leicester sell to another Premier League side for 30 million? There were rumors of Leicester holding out for at least 40 million if they were to sell to another English club (probably the reason why Arsenal aren't that interested and Liverpool preferred Salah)
  11. Alexis Sanchez

    Obviously Arsenal wouldn't take our offer seriously....but from Sanchez' point of view, he'd be better off at Chelsea than City. They already have an overload in attacking players...at least at Chelsea, he'd be guaranteed starter alongside Hazard.
  12. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang

    If we had to invest into a young striker, I'd bet on Belotti. The kid has it all. However, if the board don't want to pay the 89 million..then the next best option would be Aubameyang. Proven goal scorer, coming from a quality team, offers something different from Michy.
  13. 21. Nemanja Matic

    As long as Matic ends up anywhere but Manchester United, he can leave.
  14. Alvaro Morata

    There was an interview with Thierry Henry about Belgium's attacking talent atm and I recall Henry saying something like: "Michy is a pure confidence player, if he's feeling the flow of the game, he's close to the best finisher in the team, he's capable of pulling off outrageous things you wouldn't expect". Henry also said the same thing about Hazard...he was like if Eden ever becomes ruthless/selfish in front of goal, watch out opposition defenders. I feel as though If Michy is given a run of games and he gains confidence, he can get us 10+ goals this season. *Apologies for going off-topic* I wouldn't mind Morata, but I would prefer Belotti as I feel he's got more upside in his overall game.
  15. I agree with your points mate. I'm just saying that Belotti is only 23, whilst Costa is close to his physical peak at 28. Give someone like Belotti 2 seasons under Conte and he could be just as good as Costa (in terms of goal scoring impact).
