  1. Super Frank Thread

    Wish him the best. Glad to have him back at the club.
  2. 10. Willian

    That's pretty mild for this board actually. Have you never looked in at the Alonso thread?
  3. Sarri But Not Sarri Thread

    I agree with this. The only thing working against this is if the transfer ban stays in effect this summer. I think he can improve the squad by bringing in some players we had on loan this season but I don't think that will be enough to improve the results much beyond this past season.
  4. The English Football Thread

    In that case it looks like it's time to pay the piper. It's unfortunate that this has happened at a time when we aren't really in a position to handle it, but that's at the foot of the board and their policies over the past several years.
  5. The English Football Thread

    Thanks for clarifying that point for me.
  6. The English Football Thread

    Excuse my ignorance but one quick question. I was under the impression that the infractions that we have been banned for occurred several years back. It's all fine and good saying that the laws have been in place for years now, but if they were new when the infractions incurred, what's the difference? Maybe I'm misinformed on the situation.
  7. Sarri But Not Sarri Thread

    This season was disappointing but really not that unexpected. It was a short pre-season coming off the World Cup and we didn't really upgrade the squad any. We started really well, though showed some worrying signs, and then it was a return to the previous year. I think people's perceptions would be totally different if the first 12 games had been flipped with the last 12 games. If nothing else it would give hope that we were picking up and getting better at the system he was trying to implement. As it is, we achieved the goal most had at the start of the year and although Sarri had his moments that made us scratch our heads or curse him out on the boards. If the transfer ban gets lifted I'm looking forward to how we retool and what type of players we go after. With some more suitable options in the team is he able to get us playing the style he implemented at Napoli? If the ban doesn't get delayed it's going to be this year all over again and we'll have to sweat out trying to get top 4 and not being happy with how we play.
  8. Sarri But Not Sarri Thread

    Anyone saying Sarri is faultless or hasn't made mistakes this season isn't paying attention. That said, he got us a top 4 finish and 90 minutes from a European final with a team that I think we can all agree is lacking a lot. If the transfer ban is lifted or delayed we can see what he can do with a bit more quality in the overall squad. If not, it's going to be deja vu next season.
  9. Alex Telles

    Is Chilwell off the table? I would like Telles and he would probably be cheaper but I think you have to account for the homegrown factor as well. Fullback seems like a position we could pump up our homegrown numbers and improve our quality, assuming we are able to buy anyone.
  10. Roman Abramovich

    Yes, agree totally.
  11. Roman Abramovich

    I have to admit this last part about UK buyers I find a bit baffling. I learned never make business personal and that last part seems like a direct response to how the UK government is treating him. You won't let me into your country I won't sell my club to anyone in your country. Maybe he just thinks he can get more from outside buyers then he can from someone in the UK but it really comes across as kind of petty and petulant.
  12. Chelsea banned for TWO transfer windows

    Wow. I know FIFA is corrupt but this is ridiculous.
  13. Aaron Wan-Bissaka

    I certainly wouldn't be against buying him but I think it really depends on price. It's not the most pressing position in my mind. If we are going to spend on a fullback I want a left sided one first. I just feel that side is weaker and we actually do have a prospect up and coming on the right side, so, I'd just focus more on the other side of the pitch and use that money on other positions.
  14. Sarri But Not Sarri Thread

    You make a good point but in my mind probably the best game we've played recently was the second leg against Spuds.
  15. 1. Kepa Arrizabalaga

    We've certainly had some quality keepers. Being least talented out of that quartet isn't something to be ashamed of. I think it's a bit harsh though. I'd wait a season or two.
