  1. Nicolo Barella

    as much as I'd like to dig out the club about taking their time on this... I honestly don't even know which would be better of the current options that are reported to be on the table: - buy paredes, re-sign kovacic - buy barella, don't re-sign kovacic, promote mount - buy no one, re-sign kovacic, promote mount If I was the board and wasn't sure on the best course of action, I'd just ask Sarri what he'd prefer and go for that but knowing our board, that's unlikely
  2. 22. Willian

    we need to start a #FireMarina hashtag ASAP
  3. 22. Willian

    after 6 years willian barely speaks a word of English lol, weak argument. Especially considering Costa was a beast for us and couldnt speak a word of English... Also, using your logic, anyone who plays regularly for a team is automatically important to the team... that's flawed logic imo. If we were to use that logic, we would never sell anyone from starting XI which is a silly notion... Bottom line is that his performances have been horrible for a while and getting rid of him, in and of itself, would be beneficial to the team. Anyways that's just my opinion
  4. 22. Willian

    Performances are literally the only thing relevant in this discussion lol
  5. Malcom

    what I posted of course relies on CHO staying on at least til summer... If that is in fact the case, CHO getting willian's minutes could make him reconsider leaving even! I'm not against buying a replacement, but I'd love to see Willian go regardless (unless CHO leaves this january, then we need at least one)
  6. 22. Willian

    how so? he almost never scores, almost never assists, is holding back CHO, isn't a lockerroom leader, rarely affects games positivily despite always starting... how is he a big player for chelsea?
  7. 22. Willian

    still worth it
  8. Malcom

    even if we get no one in return, I'd much rather have CHO taking willian's minutes... Selling Willian is a win-win in any scenario, he is wrong side of 30, almost never score or assists but still starts every game, is holding back younger better players.... Malcom is just a bonus as far as I'm concerned, getting rid of Willian is the real prize lol
  9. Malcom

    if they reject this someone needs to be sacked ASAP
  10. 22. Willian

    lol no shit, getting messi would be even better but it aint happening
  11. 22. Willian

    Funny tweet by "French Blues" on twitter: the tweet basically says: If all this news is true, hard to understand which is more shocking: that barca still want willian, even after his horrible six months since the summer OR the idea that we might reject their offer yet again.
  12. 22. Willian

    I got so excited at the prospect of him leaving I didn't even click to see who the supposed player barca are offering is lmao But seriously, this story might be complete bs but if someone does offer us anything north of 30M, let's bite their hand off!
  13. Gonzalo Higuain

    can you post the link? can't find it
  14. Gonzalo Higuain

    It was reported earlier that Marina was against the Higuain signing and Sarri was for it... With this latest news from the usually reliable Telegraph stating that we are now negotiating for him, does it mean that a manager finally managed to make a breakthrough with our board and Marina and made them understand that the manager probably knows better what the team needs?... Hope that's the case and that going forward Sarri's wishes will be taken into account more. If Sarri wants Higuain I'm all for it!
  15. Nabil Fekir

    Giroud says about Fekir: "yeah sure we spoke during our time with the French NT, during the time his proposed move to liverpool was being concluded but then it fell apart and it was then about Chelsea from that point. Even Eden I think spoke a few word to Fekir that we would embrace him with open arms. He's an amazing player so naturally we would gladly welcome him. However I don't know if it's on the cards as the transfer window closes on Thursday"
