  1. Chelsea's Transfer Targets

    there’s a reason he’s not in their squad even with so many injuries... He’s finished and would be a disaster in the PL with his severe lack of pace... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Chelsea's Transfer Targets

    reports that mertens is available for low fee (read 8.5M somewhere on twitter, who knows if it's true) because his contract runs out in summer and that us and arsenal are interested... wouldn't be the worst thing in the world to sell giroud, get mertens in until end of season to help us get top 4 and then hopefully make some big signings in summer like sancho and werner

    the running track ruins it for me, apart from that very nice! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Chelsea's Transfer Targets

    I hope you're right and that all these decisions that seem bizarre (if they even do happen, might all be fake paper talk for all we know) are setting the ground for sancho signing in summer...
  5. Chelsea's Transfer Targets

    hey if Lmaps wants him, that's good enough for me (even if I don't think he will help us in any substantial way, I obviously trust Lamps' judgement more than mine when it comes to players) but if it's a club signing that lamps has no particular interest in, then it's ridiculous as this guy has been a total dud... Freshen up the squad, fine, but don't try freshening it up with a players who has looked horrible for months and months, that doesn't make sense to me... Whatever happens, I hope Lamps is calling the shots and if that's the case, we'll live with wtvr he decides and hope it works out for the best
  6. Chelsea's Transfer Targets

    lemar? ewww even on loan wouldn't want him... for what, so that he can take minutes away from development of CHO, pulisic and mount and then leave in the summer? Is he even better than pedro in any case? I don't think so... would be a horrible signing

  9. Politics & Stuff

    spewing talking points directly from the sub human scum that is the ayatollah and I’m the one that’s brainwashed? ok lol[emoji1305] And just so you know, cnn and fox’s views are diametrically opposed... cnn considers trump hitler and the greatest evil in the world while fox has a few hosts who support him. So saying I’m brainwashed by both shows you have no clue what you are on about... Also, iran attacked and invaded no one? In the past few years alone (without even going back in the decades where iran did much more of this stuff), Iran has literally invaded, attacked and is now controlling lebanon, iraq, yemen and more, what planet are you living on lol? And of course a country that mows down by the THOUSANDS its own citizens who are peacefully protesting, as iran did a couple of weeks back, is a bully that needs to be put down and a cancer, first correct thing you have said so far... not to mention their countless other human rights violations against their own citizens such as killing gays, oppressing religious minorities, jailing political dissidents etc etc As to your claim that the US created isis, if you mean that by leaving the area, they created a vacuum and breading ground for isis to form, ok maybe hillary/obama’s decision to leave did help... if however you think they literally orchestrated and created the terror organisation itself, then you are a fruit cake who also probably believes the earth is flat, moon landing was fake, protocols of zion are real etc Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Politics & Stuff

    lol cheering on the world’s largest state exporter of terror to get nukes, a state who shoots down its own citizens in the streets by the thousands for protesting peacefully, invades nations with the stated goal of creating new bases from which to attack other sovereign nations (yemen, SA, iraq, etc), hangs its citizens by the thousands, explicitly states its desire to annihilate sovereign nations like US and Israel, attacks US embassies, consulates, attacks SA oil refineries, started a war in yemen, attacks oil transport ships, funds and props up other terror orgs like hezbollah etc... (and all this just in the last 5 years) some of you in this thread need psychiatric help Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Politics & Stuff

    iran has been overtly aggressive towards US for years... benghazi consulate attack in 2012, taking US navy offciers hostage a few years later, taking down US drone, attack on US consulate a few days ago... They were warned numerous times, especially by trump after the drone attack that there would be repercussions. They didn't listen, thought it was a bluff and decided to attack a US consulate so US kills the leading war monger of the region who's been sowing terror and killings for years in ME, suleimani. and now ppl are saying the US is pushing for war after they've shown restraint for years and iran has been antagonizing and attacking US for years lmao

  13. 20. Callum Hudson-Odoi

    this is getting a bit ridiculous, what is taking so long? have a feeling his agents/representation are the ones not making this easy...
  14. Next Manager?

    meltdown would be much worse should it be benitez (I know, it won't be), at least jose is a chelsea man (much more so than fsw at least lol)
  15. Next Manager?

    it's BS, Matt Law all but confirmed it won't be happening
  16. Next Manager?

    just read that apparently gracia is under consideration but is not the main target... pheww This maybe a view tinted by our 2004-2012 glory days but my preferred choices, of the rumors floating around, are: 1. Lamps and Jody 2. Jose with JT (very unlikely but who knows in football) 3. Allegri 4. Steve Holland 5. Epirito Santo Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  17. Sarri But Not Sarri Thread

    This is a major clustfvck if indeed sarri leaves... the only reason I'd be OK with it is if sarri wants out himself. However if Lamps comes in, galvanizes our super talented academy graduates and re-instills the chelsea mentality of our golden 2004-2012 years into the club and Cech ends up being an astute operator in his role, this could end up being a sort of blessing in disguise. The only worry I see is that Lamps would have to start out his managerial career by not signing any players for the first two windows
  18. Sarri But Not Sarri Thread

    I guess the argument would be that that someone at the club leaked all this..
  19. Sarri But Not Sarri Thread

    interesting points and I tend to agree.... what we need is not necessarily to stop sacking managers but rather have a DoF in place who actually has a strategy and plan for our transfers, and who can influence the type of managers we get, so that they fit with the overall type of player we would be buying... right now, who knows who is deciding what players to buy and what managers to sign, there is no comprehensive strategy as far as I can see. We need to have a DoF who plans ahead and lays the foundation for future managers to succeed by having a clear idea of what type of football we want to play and for those types of players to already be at the club when new managers come in... This summer we made a mess of Sarri negotiations, a manager who the club seemingly decided to go for that summer or not long before the summer, and we were left with a few weeks at the very end of the summer to try to get players in that he would need and that would fit his style... just bad planning and it needs to be fixed
  20. Sarri But Not Sarri Thread

    4-0 bournemouth, 6-0 city, 2-0 MU and other such results are seriously damaging our reputation of being a top club in England. He has to go... simple as.
  21. Sarri But Not Sarri Thread

    if we're gonna sack him, it better be today or tomorrow... what's the point of waiting to be whooped by city and spurs, and maybe even crashing out of EL, to sack him?
  22. Eden Hazard

    Matt Law also suggesting Real will be in for him this summer.... I hope the club is planning for him leaving and how to reshape the team because from these reports, the things Hazard has been saying recently, our form and the mood around the club, I think the most probable scenario is that Real will bid, Eden will respectfully ask to go and we will grant him that wish. I may be wrong but this is how I see it playing out, hope I'm wrong :/
  23. 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
  24. 10. Willian

    we need to start a #FireMarina hashtag ASAP
  25. 10. 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
