  1. 4. Cesc Fàbregas

    Conte said in one of his last interviews last seasons that Hazard and Pedro/Willian are actually no. 10s in this 3-4-3 and not inside forwards/wingers. The wing backs take this responsability (to play as wingers) when the team is on the front foot. So we could see more of Cesc in the front three with Hazard and Morata next season judging by Conte's words. Bakayoko - Kante as the holding midfielders. But in this case we need at least two new central midfielders to act as a backup.
  2. Danilo Luiz Da Silva

    What a weirdo this guy is. From Madrid bench to City bench. Walker could be the worst full back that football has ever seen by winter and still be playing because of his transfer fee.
  3. General Transfer Talk

    Forgot about those lol. Got used to them being loaned haha. So still over 75M to spend and still be on profit...
  4. General Transfer Talk

    In: Morata 58M, Rudiger 32M, Bakayoko 40M, Caballero (free) - 130M. Out: Oscar(60M), Bamford (6M), Cuadrado (17M), Begovic(10M), Atsu (6M), Bertrand Traore (10M), Solanke (5M?), Matic (45M?), Diego Costa (25M?) - 184M. 54M difference. Would invest it in Virgil van Dijk. Then concentrate on Ox and a left full back or a backup for Alonso and we're done. GK - Thibo, Caballero, Eduardo CB - Van Dijk, David Luiz, Rudiger, Cahill, Christensen (Azpilicueta). RB/RWB - Azpilicueta, Moses (Ox). LB/LWB - Marcos Alonso, Kenedy, new LB/LWB. CM - Kante, Cesc, Bakayoko, Ox, Baker. Wingers - Hazard, Willian, Pedro, Ox, Musonda. CF - Morata, Batshuayi. http://lineupbuilder.com/?sk=f2fy6
  5. Arsenal 0-3 Chelsea

    It's similar to Juventus' pre season during Conte's time there. He works hard on physical condition in this period, wants everybody to be super fit at the start of the season, probably thinks that he can still adjust tactical aspects during weekly sessions even if the season had already started. But they have to be fit first, otherwise everything is in vain.
  6. Arsenal 0-3 Chelsea

    Courtois - Azpilicueta Christensen Cahill - Moses Cesc Kante M.Alonso - Pedro Batshuayi Willian
  7. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang

    Being German maybe you know more - is the Aubameyang "saga" over now or Watzke is bluffing in order to speed up the whole thing? Maybe he's thinking - "Now that we say he's off the market, teams will panic and finally make their move." After all Dortmund need to find a replacement, too, can't wait until August for Chelsea to make up their mind.
  8. Alvaro Morata

    Was excited about the idea of Aubameyang, but now that he's apparently off the market, I'd rather stick to Batshuayi. Humble and never complained throughout the whole last season, maybe he deserves a chance. Not the ideal replacement for Diego Costa, but nor is Morata and Belotti. They are not worth 80M. These two players to be valued 10-15M more than Aubameyang is a travesty. Morata's goalscoring record is piss poor and not worthy of that crazy amount. Overrated because he was a Real Madrid youth - He is going to be 25 in a couple of months and has done nothing so far to suggest he is a 80M. Belotti - also a few months from turning 24. Nobody had heard of him before last summer. Had his breakthrough season and now he's worth over 80M? Give me a break. My opinion.
  9. Danilo Luiz Da Silva

    El Confidencial the Spanish version of BBC when it comes to the two big Madrid clubs. Deal pretty much done and dusted. Basically they say in the article that Florentino Perez wants to totally get rid of Jorge Mendes' influence at the club following the tax fraud allegations and Danilo is now the last player in Mendes' books he needs to get rid of. Coentrao, Pepe and James have already left this summer - Danilo the last one standing will be gone too. Danilo is not represented by Mendes' agency directly, but the influencial agent intermediates Danilo's every move/contract. Of course, Cristiano Ronaldo is also managed by Jorge Mendes. But Ronaldo is Ronaldo... Danilo was offered to several clubs - Juventus and Chelsea the most interested ones. Juventus have offered £18M, which Madrid did not accept. Chelsea have made a £28M offer and Danilo is soon to be a Chelsea player. Danilo's replacement at Madrid - Achraf Hakimi. A player Zidane likes very much (Maghrebi as well), already with Madrid on the US tour.
  10. The Board

    We are Premier League's reigning champions BECAUSE OF HIM.
  11. Sergio Aguero

    Aguero and Aubameyang as the rumoured options for the centre forward position. Fucking get in! Better not end up with Belotti or Morata - really have no ideas how my brain and my heart would react to that.
  12. Danilo Luiz Da Silva

    I second to that. Danilo needs a fresh start, looks completely lost at Madrid and worst of it all - has Carvajal, probably the best right back in the world ATM, as a direct competitor. The Danilo of Porto was an animal on the right hand side, a joy to watch, think the RWB position would fit him like a glove. Very excited about this and truly hope he ends up here. The Danilo of Madrid - would not touch with a barge pole. But his two year spell in Spain does not tell the whole story. There is a tremendous player in there that has lost his confidence. Under the right guidance of a terrific manager Antonio Conte he will go back to his old form.
  13. 19. Diego Costa

    Listen, I would do this - let him go to Atletico on the cheap, even 20M maybe and ask Atletico for the 1st option on Griezmann. Not a swap + money deal, not a discount, just the 1st option to a future sale. Kante, Bakayoko, Hazard, Aubameyang, Grizmann - basically the front five - all French speakers haha.
  14. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang

    These "Sky Sports sources" been dog turd this summer, better be right on this one!!!
  15. 14. Tiemoue Bakayoko

    About damn time haha Welcome Timmy!
  16. Tiemoué Bakayoko

    Since we're on a football forum why not pretend you're Conte and do it? Except for moaning and bitching around, it's not like you're contributing a lot these days.
  17. Romelu Lukaku

    http://www.espn.co.uk/video/clip?id=19932714 Have United and Liverpool swapped the PR teams? Cried when visited Stamford Bridge for the first time saying Chelsea it's his dream club. Nevermind his room in Belgium all in blue filled with Chelsea stuff. Now United are the biggest in the world and have the best set of fans Bonds very well with the other Chelsea through and through "ready to defend the club as a pundit when he retires" Jose Mourinho that overnight felt a sudden chemistry with the United fans haha. Felt like his agent made him into joining United just to milk them of that outrageous agent fee, but interviews like this make me sick to my stomach. Fake people in a world ruled by greedy agents.
  18. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang

    Please God for once in this lifetime have Express spot on this one
  19. Romelu Lukaku

    Ain't got no spare time to do it myself, but I bet that if you would look in the Lukaku thread at RedCafe there is at least 20-25 people that three weeks ago were laughing at the prospect of Chelsea getting him, calling him different names, but now the exact same guys are creaming their pants over United's announcement. A post with "then and now" comments would be glorious
  20. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang

    The only centre forward option that would get me off my seat this summer. Been made available weeks ago at 63M and still can't understand why there is no links to him. A Real Madrid cast-off or a one season wonder from Italy? None, simple as that. Are we forgetting it's Diego Costa we're supposed to replace? He's no Andre Gray or Troy Deeney, he's a world class centre forward, two times PL winner in the last three years. Must replace with someone else who's in the top tier, too. Morata, Belotti? Not fit to tie Aubameyang's laces. If this guy isn't our first choice then something must be wrong.
  21. Romelu Lukaku

    Everton get Rooney back on a free and United keep paying most part of his wages for the next couple of seasons. And still the fee is 75m reaching 90m after "easily achievable add-ons" (as per today's The Times). He'd have been my 1st choice here won't deny this but even I can agree it's a silly amount of money. United had a leverage also in Rooney. Conte's 1st choice or not, this sum is complete madness.
  22. Romelu Lukaku

    Those bashing the board every day getting cocky now...... Its like they want a dreadful summer window to be proved right on a fans forum rather than a successful one to benefit us all....
  23. The Conte Thread

    Everton have already spent like they never did before and Rooney is set to join by the end of the week too. Sandro Ramirez and Rooney that's two forwards already and Everton today have made a 40m offer for Benfica's Raul Jimenez. Ok it's just a bid for now but it shows Everton are interested into bringing another centre forward. Don't you think Lukaku, Rooney and Sandro would be enough if Lukaku was to stay there? Everton are in no position to have 4 quality forwards in their squad knowing they are playing a one centre forwards tactics. One has to make room and that's 100% Lukaku if you ask me.
  24. The Conte Thread

    Does not necessarily have to be made official to confirm the obvious. There is plenty of solid sources for me to believe 100% that Rudiger, Bakayoko and Lukaku are already Chelsea players. And Alex Sandro to some extent although it'll take time but I'm sure he'll end up as a Chelsea player in the end. It's just that some clubs need to secure their replacements before letting players go. And I truly believe that these 5 players are not the only ones we're looking at and we're going to be linked with at least one or two more players in the coming weeks (centre back and maybe another attacker).
  25. The Conte Thread

    Fucking hell I swear some of you need to get a fucking grip and stop moaning like fucking bitches all day long. Club has signed a quality backup GK already and three other deals look to be wrapped up and ready to be announced anytime soon - Lukaku, Bakayoko, Rudiger - while pushing hard every day for probably worlds 2nd best left back only after Madrid's Marcelo - Alex Sandro. Bakayoko and Rudiger are worst kept secrets in football and if Everton going bonkers as we speak spending 100m on transfers already is not an indication that Lukaku's gone then I don't know what it is. And if you thought that a deal for Alex Sandro would be done and dusted in one day then hold your fucking horses because this sort of massive transfers do not work like that. It's Juventus they are negociating with, not Brentford. Quality added to an already league winning squad, all this while keeping our best players and selling irrelevant squad/loaned players for almost 130m.
