  1. Radja Nainggolan

    These deals between the Italian big clubs are so funny. Can't think of any other league where players move from one big club to another on such a constant basis. Conte chased Nainggolan for years, while he was always declaring his utmost love for Roma with every chance he got. No matter how much Chelsea seemed to offer him, he kept talking of how much he adores that club and wants to stay there forever. One year later he joins Internazionale who would I rate as a 3rd tier European football club now 😂😂😂
  2. The European Leagues & Competitions Thread V2

    Miserable night for a miserable club with miserable fans. Instead of being their 6th CL title it's now the 6th trophyless season in a row. No league title since before I was even born and one League Cup against fucking Cardiff City to cheer for in the last 12 or so years. Ha fucking Ha!!! Scousers the scum of the Earth.
  3. Next Manager?

    Hahah Sarri an expansive football practitioner adding yet another totally attacking minded coach (Zola) to his backroom staff This should be a fun ride if indeed happens
  4. Next Manager?

    The likes of Leonardo Jardim, Pochettino, Zidane, even Simone Inzaghi or Di Francesco, they all like the attacking side of the game, but I think that Klopp, Tuchel and Sarri are the closest thing to Guardiola at this moment. Simeone, Allegri, Conte, Mourinho they're all top managers (excluded Low and Tite as they are off the "club management" market), can play some good football against lesser sides, but I don't think they come close to Guardiola, Klopp, Tuchel, Sarri when it comes to the attacking side of the game. These four have it in their blood to play expansive football and since three of those are totally unreachable, I think Chelsea would do an amazing job to appoint Sarri. Think it really is time for a change both on the pitch and on how Chelsea is seen globally - from "But of course Chelsea know how to defend, it's what they do." to something more pleasing for the eyes and close to the modern times.
  5. Next Manager?

    Apparently Zenit have offered Sarri a top contract, but he is stalling on it, wants Chelsea to make a move and come to PL.
  6. The Conte Thread

    Tuchel took charge at Paris, Mancini at the Italian NT, Allegri is going to stay at Juventus for at least another season and Napoli have Ancelotti lined up should Sarri leave. It's the jobs Conte's been linked to for the past months and frankly, watching his last interviews, it gives me the feeling that the situation has completely changed now - He moaned all season and I had the feeling he does not want to be here anymore, but now it seems he looks out of alternatives (no top clubs in need of a new manager) and he'd be willing to stay, but frankly I have no idea what the board thinks of him anymore. Maybe an FA Cup triumph could save his job. Personally I'm advocating for his stay if it means we're not getting the likes of Luis Enrique. But with two conditions - a total change in attitude and tactics. For all the flaws in this squad, he's been at fault also for this bad season because of his constant moaning. Disrupted the atmosphere for the start of the season and he's looked a shadow of his former self. Also a change in tactics is needed. This five at the back shite is outdated and totally not fitted for a big club.
  7. The Conte Thread

    Personally I can't see a 60 years old Italian manager that apparently speaks no word in English switching leagues now. But at the same time I think I have read an interview with Sarri some months ago saying he does not care a bit about transfers and will work with whoever the board brings at the club and he is there to improve players and try to win trophies with whoever he got at his disposal. Judging by this, I think this is music to the ears of our board and the perfect candidate for the allegedly vacant Chelsea manager job this summer. Like it or not, unfortunately this is going to be Chelsea's policy from now on and there is only a handful of quality managers ready to accept this. Fortunately Sarri is amongst those and a top one with a clear vision on attacking football and developing players.

    All I know mate is them tits are the real deal
  9. Chelsea 1-3 Spurs

    False hope had we won this - Maybe this result is for the best. Painful because it was Spurs and we always want to see Chelsea win, but maybe another season out of the Champions League could be a wake up call for the board. City are moving forward at fast pace and we've even fallen behind Spurs and Liverpool !!! United will always pump money into this team and Arsenal for sure will only get better after Wenger's tenure will end. If a yes man is appointed with no clear philosophy that is ready to accept transfers of 10 players worth 200M in total instead of 2-3 world class ones for the same amount then I am lost for words...
  10. Next Manager?

  11. Luke Shaw

    Same old, same old. Mourinho unable to develop young talent - Tell me something new... We were made to believe De Bruyne is the laziest and most unprofessional player on this planet. And we fools took the bait. Look at him now. Luke Shaw is a victim of Mourinho's ego - Chose United over Chelsea when Mourinho was in charge here. Enough for Mourinho to hold grudge on him and try to discredit Shaw with every opportunity. Even when the kid has had a good game, it was "Mourinho's brain and Shaw's legs"... There is three top, super, highly talented internationals in United's squad that any other manager would have improved by now - Martial, Rashford, Shaw. No wonder they have stalled, maybe even regressed under Mourinho. Chelsea, Spurs, Arsenal, City - no matter who Shaw's next club is, I'm 100% he'll hit the ground running again.
  12. The Mourinho Thread

    He's making a fool of himself by even calling De Bruyne's name in that presser. Maybe next time somebody could ask him about Conte's heritage, too - De Bruyne, Lukaku, Salah, Filipe Luis, I dare add Cuadrado, maybe even Bertrand to that list. This guy is so full of shite. Talks about Sevilla like they are some European super power, when the truth is that a team like United that has invested that much money into the team, should knock them out in style. Watch Bayern rip them a new hole in the next round. There is teams like Betis and Eibar that have put 5 past this Sevilla side this season during 90 minutes, while United have only scored once in 180+.
  13. The Conte Thread

    For me personally Conte is the right man for the job, but frankly I think he wants to leave more than we want him to stay. I wish that for the first time Chelsea would show the world that they can trust the manager after a poor season and give him another go. But unfortunately we know it won't happen. Just look at United and the differences between the two boards - what Mourinho has done there this season is borderline pathetic. No title challenge and knocked out by the team sitting 5th in Spain and with a worst defensive record that Leganes and Girona, dumped out of League Cup by a Championship side, all this having a squad filled with 90M players and a 600k/pw one. But he will get another season, this is what I am sure of. While Conte will surely get the sack after having had to do w/o an out of form centre forward all season, poor full backs and a one man midfield all season as Kante had no decent partner since August! To me it looked like he played all alone in the centre of the park all season long... Bakayoko, Drinkwater, Zappacosta, Emerson, Barkley. Add to this a totally out of form Morata that has struggled to cope with the PL all season - Compare this to the other teams' transfer dealings... You just can't expect anybody to mount a title challenge and a long UCL run with this transfers. Conte is stubborn and would pick a fight with everybody, but you can't expect him to do miracle after miracle while others spend big on best players.
  14. 10. Eden Hazard

    I don't understand this "Hazard going to Madrid because of Zidane" talk. At this point there is more chances of Hazard being managed by Zidane at Chelsea, than at Madrid. Madrid are 20 points behind Barcelona and out of the Spanish Cup. Next up is the Paris tie and it is do or die for Zidane. There is a lot of pressure on Madrid before this tie and a lot of delusion from the Spanish media if you ask me because they talk about this leg as if they are favourites to win it and playing a normal opponent. The relationship between Zidane and Florentino Perez is totally broken since a few weeks ago when Zidane refused to sign Kepa from Bilbao. It was Florentino Perez's signing, he agreed everything from release clause to Kepa's contract, but Zidane did not want him and since then there is a lot of tension between the two of them. Perez was furious and wanted to sack Zidane after this incident, but kept him out of respect for what he meant as a player and what he did as a manager in the last years. But he is surely gone in the summer if you ask me.
  15. The Conte Thread

    A season ruined by this useless board before it even started. Every sane person would think that you must build on a title winning season, but not this board it seems. And it is not even the first time it happens. They would rather go and buy seven or eight players worth 200M, than get two or three world class players who would automatically improve the team. You look at Arsenal - the perennial losers, 6th in the table, Europa League level, a dinosaur of a manager, a deluded fan base, a club that has lost their best player to a rival. They go in the market and buy one of Europe's best goalscorers for a club record amount. While we set for the likes of Zappacosta, Drinkwater, Bakayoko and Roma's bench warmers, looking closely to influence as little as we can the net spend. We had everything a club could have asked for in May last year - a title winning squad, a passionate manager, a great atmosphere, lots of players taken to the next level. Everything was there for this club to reach new heights. Diego Costa should have been the only departure last summer. Everybody else should have stayed at the club, while adding at least two or three other top players to automatically break into the starting eleven. But not with this board. They had to sell in order to buy, Pathetic!!! This is not 2005 anymore where you could allow yourself to get relaxed knowing there is maybe only one club posing a threat and you could easily bounce back very quickly. Times have changed, there are at least five clubs now ready to pump money into their teams and it hurts to say this but Chelsea looks way behind all the others at this point and there is no signs anything will change come the end of the season. I bet this pathetic board would sell Hazard for 200M and buy six or seven Zappacostas worth this money, instead of looking for the best talent out there and fight for him. Conte had the right ideas and was the perfect manager to drive this club forward, unfortunately he had to deal with this greedy board. Will be sad to see him gone.
