  1. General Transfer Talk

    I hear some RUMOURS that Roman has given AVB €150M to strenght the team on 4 positions next month. A full back (right), a central defender, a creative midfielder and a striker. Let's say that these rumours are right, who would you get?? On top of AVB's list are rumoured: Alvaro Pereira, Gary Cahill, Jack Rodwell and Gonzalo Higuain or Edinson Cavani..

  4. Didier Drogba

    Didier Drogba proves why he has to be Chelsea's top dog - and that means Fernando Torres must start on the bench against Manchester United Struggling Spaniard can make bigger impact as a substitute against Manchester United, but the Ivorian powerhouse must be the one to lead the Blues' line on Tuesday By Wayne Veysey at Stamford Bridge Apr 10, 2011 9:30:00 AM There are some big beasts in the Chelsea jungle. But there is only one top dog – and that is Didier Drogba. Following Fernando Torres' deadline-day switch, a pack of feared predators have been queuing up to bare their teeth at the point of the attack. But on the evidence of the audition for Tuesday's season-hinging match at Manchester United, only Drogba has the bite to compliment the bark. Chelsea's centre-forward required careful guarding against Wigan Athletic. He ran the channels, bashed defenders out of the way in a manner in which only he can, created space for others with smart movement and banged in shots from all angles whenever he had a sniff of goal. In manager-speak, he put in a shift. He was also wasteful, too, in his desire to breach the dam erected by Roberto Martinez and prove he is lord of the manor at the Bridge. Excellent free-kick positions were wasted and team-mates were sometimes ignored as he strove in search of something that would guarantee his master's approval. Carlo Ancelotti claims he already knows his team and the system he will play at Old Trafford in the quarter-final second leg. He provided a big hint by binning 4-4-2 and starting with the 4-3-3 formation that has been Chelsea's bread and butter since the Jose Mourinho days. Drogba alone up front, Nicolas Anelka and Florent Malouda either side of him and a three-man midfield patrolled by Frank Lampard, Ramires and John Obi-Mikel. Like John Terry, who was not in the matchday squad, Torres and Michael Essien were 'rested'. Feeling blue | Torres has failed to score in 648 minutes at Chelsea since deadline-day move As a dress rehearsal, it can be said to only have been a partial success. By the end of the first half, as Chelsea searched for greater cutting edge, Anelka was playing alongside Drogba. At half-time, the ineffective Mikel was withdrawn and Yossi Benayoun was summoned from the bench for his first Chelsea appearance since September 22. By that point, it was back to the 4-4-2 formation originally introduced to shoehorn Torres into the starting XI. Anelka made way for the Spaniard a third of the way into the second period after linking well with Drogba but failing to offer the kind of threat of which he is capable. Torres' 31-minute performance was a considerable improvement on his previous 617 minutes in the blue shirt. He was industrious, lively and found himself in some excellent goalscoring positions. There was everything but the goal. How the Bridge willed him to break his Chelsea duck. Malouda's goal coaxed Wigan out of their half and provided the kind of space behind the centre halves that would have been an amusement park for the Torres of two years ago. One Drogba cross narrowly avoided his lunging body. A long ball from the back sent him clear on goal but Torres' first touch, not for the first time in a desperate 10 weeks in west London, let him down. With the clock counting down, Benayoun side-footed a short pass into his path in the penalty area with no Wigan defenders in sight. The crowd held its breath as Torres shaped to pull the trigger. Surely, this would be it. Torres' connection with the outside of his right boot was true. The ball was heading for the back of the net. But Ali Al Habsi, whose reflexes had been in good working order all afternoon, stretched out his arm at the last millisecond and diverted the ball to safety. It was a mighty fine save but something is still missing for the Chelsea No. 9. You feel Torres in his 2007-09 pomp would not have given Al Habsi the opportunity to show off his athleticism. With his job and legacy possibly depending on the outcome of the Champions League quarter-final, Ancelotti cannot afford to indulge Roman Abramovich's marquee signing from the start on Tuesday. For the Italian, it has to be Drogba leading the line, with two creators either side of him. Just the way the Ivorian likes it. The support act is not one that suits him or Torres. They both have to be the main man. Malouda is likely to get the nod over Yuri Zhirkov as Saturday's Spring sunshine reawakened the player that had laid dormant for six months. Yossi Benayoun is fit to start after making his first appearance for Chelsea since September 22 on Saturday but it would represent a gamble by Ancelotti to prefer him to Anelka, whose versatility and awareness should guarantee him a starting point. He is also the club's leading scorer this season with 16 goals. Poor Salamon Kalou, scorer of nine goals this season – the same as Torres – will once again be shunted out to the sidelines. Whatever the future of the Big Four strikers holds beyond this season, Ancelotti must concentrate on the here and now. It will suit Chelsea, and perhaps Torres too, for the club's record signing to be an impact substitute against United's tiring defenders. That means letting the club's top Drog off the leash from the first minute. Link
  5. Suso

    Suso (Ex Bindipper) Exclusive: Milan, Suso has attracted the interest of Chelsea and Juventus CHELSEA HAVE INTEREST - According to Calciomercato.com sources, in the past few days Chelsea have been involved on the Suso front. Conte likes him a lot and has added him to his wish-list for next summer's transfer market. The Blues would like to bring him back to the EPL but talks are only at an initial phase as of now. Juventus are another club who like him a lot as Marotta wants to add an offensive winger to his team (they also like Bernardeschi very much so). http://www.calciomercato.com/en/news/milan-suso-is-having-a-great-season-as-chelsea-and-juve-have-str-29772
  6. Leon Bailey

    According to a Belgian newspaper Chelsea is after 17y old Jamaican Leon Bailey. He is known as a big talent and allready played in youth teams for Genk and Standard. Currently he plays in Slovakia for Trencin. Chelsea earlier tried to get him together with Ajax but then he chose Trencin. It's expected should he join Chelsea he will be loaned out to sister club Mouscron. Tbc..
  7. Mauro Icardi

    So according to Tancredi Palmeri (Italian CNN correspondent) who has sources from Sky Italy, we have contacted Sampdoria to try and sign 19 year old 'wonder kid' Mauro Icardi. He's Argentinian and was signed by Sampdoria from Barca's La Masia academy for €400,000 or something. He scored four goals against Pescara (becoming the third player to score four goals in one game for Sampdoria) quite recently. In his first season in Serie A he has 7 goals so far. Never actually heard of him before but was reading an article on him and apparently Barca rated him quite highly but because of the strikeforce they had, he thought it was better to leave Barca so he did.
  8. Krzysztof Piatek

    Barca are after the new Lewandowski. The guys already got 7 goals for Genoa Hes got to be worth a go. What do you think Mz @Vesper
  9. Anthony Martial

    With all the media suggestions of him not feeling the Jose love and peeps wondering if we should go for him I thought he needed his own post
  10. Matías Vecino

    He is APPARENTLY one of the 3 players Sarri has asked us to buy. http://www.talkchelsea.net/transfers/chelsea-target-maurizio-sarri-draws-up-three-man-serie-a-wish-list/ This is the latest YT I can see of his Skills etc
  11. Piotr Zielinski

    With it rumoured that Sarri if he comes wants to bring several players with him and Zelinski is said to be one of them. So thought we might like to get to know him bertter He is obviously a great player and knows Sarriball inside out. Can yo imagine both him AND Jorginho coming with Sarri OH and drag KK along for the ride! OMFG! Karan Tejwani writes a detailed scout report about Piotr Zielinski, Napoli’s impressive midfielder http://outsideoftheboot.com/2017/04/10/scout-report-piotr-zielinski/
  12. Lorenzo Insigne

    With us apparently looking at him (and thinking he would be amazing here) I thought we should give him his own thread! Now theres obviously a few problems with him coming to us. 1 The poison dwarf twat known as ADL and his love for us! 2. Hes been at Napoli 8 years and has a contract till summer 2022. 3. Even with the first 2 problems sorted can you see us paying €200 mill for him? Nah didn't think so! But we need our dreams!! Hes a short arse isn't he lol
  13. Aleksandar Mitrovic

    Aleksandar Mitrovic emerges as Chelsea target? https://www.sportsmole.co.uk/football/chelsea/transfer-talk/news/mitrovic-emerges-as-chelsea-target_335539.html Aleksandar Mitrovic’s current form stands up alongside any striker in world football Aleksandar Mitrovic has scored more goals than anyone in England's top four divisions since joining Fulham in February https://www.dreamteamfc.com/c/news-gossip/421637/aleksandar-mitrovic-fulham-serbia/
  14. Paulo Dybala

    http://www1.skysports.com/football/news/11865/9710480/chelsea-target-paulo-dybala-is-almost-certain-to-be-sold-in-summer-says-palermo-president Obviously been a target for us. 21 year old with decent scoring record in Serie A but obviously badly advised. No club in the world will pay him 15m wages per year. Maybe we can acquire him cheaply, loan the shit out of him and sell him for a profit.
  15. Deadline Day!

  21. Wilmar Barrios

    Allot is being reported that we have jumped in and have taken this guy out of Spuds hands. Their fans are doing a BlueMoon right now. But apprently he wont be joining us until Jan. The move may make sense IF by any chance Kante leaves us but lets hope that never happens

  24. Toby Alderweireld

    According to rumours in the media, we would exchange Filipe Luis for Toby Alderweireld this summer with Atlético. Alderweireld plays on loan this season for Southampton. He is a Belgian international and can perfectly play centre back and right back. He has had a very good season. At this topic, you can see the Southampton fans are crazy about him. A lot of them think he's their best defender of the past 25 years (page 2): http://www.saintsweb.co.uk/showthread.php?53983-Toby/page2#.VUoNkJP0xg8
