Always these indirect hints that we should go for Sancho, instead of Ziyech or Boga

Gesendet von meinem SM-G920F mit Tapatalk

Think I have mentioned a few times in the last few days that spending over 100 million on a single player when we still need to spend on a ST, a LB and potentially a GK would be a serious case of mismanagement of resources. Personally, I could care less whether we get Sancho or not. Now that we have gotten Ziyech, Sancho feels like a luxury player and having Pulisic/CHO/Sancho/Ziyech would be overkill (a point what I have mentioned several times on here). I want the club to go spend on other areas that need urgent fixing instead of spending what would probably be 3/4 our budget on a single player and still be left wanting in those said areas. I want Lampard, the club to spend wisely and improve the squad, not simply spend on players because they're the flavor of the month etc. Will Lampard and the club do that? God knows. We support Chelsea and Chelsea tend to make some boneheaded decisions. So yeah, god knows.

City got punished for for "overstating its sponsorship revenue in its accounts" and failing "to cooperate in the investigation".

True but think the point here is that UEFA have actually come down hard on a club breaching the FFP rules. They might come down hard too on others if they were to breach similar FFP rules.

Yeah incredible arrogance from the fans for wanting a better player than Ziyech and Boga combined in Sancho.

Sancho for only €120m (£99.6m) would be a steal

It you look at our squad it is a bit embarrassing how many average players there are? 
Arrizabalaga 

Caballero 

Alonso 

Emerson 

Barkley 

Pedro 

Willian 

Giroud 

Batshuayi 

 

How long will this mess take to sort out painful rebuild.

If we don't finish in the Top 4, then people can forget about Sancho etc, I think. Our budget would be reduced because the club would have to cover the loss of not getting the CL money. We suffered a 96 million loss when we last missed out on the CL...

Top5**. 

And looks like you don't believe we can get CL place through CL this season?

Just 7 games away :wave:

Still doubt we will get Sancho regardless even more so if Barkley and Willian stay. Ziyech hopefully plays centrally but if Lampard persists with Mason and developing him he will play Ziyech wider.

Until we know the outcome of City's appeal, we cannot assume 5th will be a CL spot. I don't trust CAS to stand firm on their ban.

Imagine relying o City's outcome...just be typical us.

At the current rate, we're gonna need City's ban to stand and PL to dock their points this season to finish in the CL spots. 5th spot alone won't be enough when we are a sinking ship, with few sharks circling around.

Sorry but did you see Ziyechs performances last season and this season in CL? Different player to Sancho but I dont think Sancho has replicated anything like some of his Bundesliga games in the CL against bigger teams either. Could be wrong but again didnt Dortmund crash out in last 16 losing 5-0 v Spurs? Wouldny say Sancho is an superior player to Ziyech and not to the degree your making out.

Tonight Sancho vs Mbappe. New Messi vs Ronaldo rivalry in the next decade potentially. 

Anyway, with RLC back just couple of days ago I was hoping for the first time this season we'll be full squad complete and BOOM now suddenly Abraham, CHO, Pulisic, Kante, RLC and Christensen all out. And Kovacic looks like pick up some injury as well... Unbelievable!

I know that but it's sad we have to rely on a third party because we are shit.

It is time for most of the board to be cashiered or (and he will never do that) the club needs to be sold

especially if (actually when, as it is almost certain) after the new stadium permit expires in 42 days, as we cannot compete under FFP rules without a new stadium

Sancho isnt on Mbappes level. Not at all for me.

I think Mbappe has already established himself as a world class player. He was absolutely vital in dragging France to a world cup win aged 19 and for me that is as big a sign of being world class as anything these days. Considering the players that France side had too, Mbappe was the deciding factor in a some of the bigger games - Argentina and Croatia particularly.

Throw in his performances in the CL as well as throughout the season Monaco won Ligue 1 (aged 18 he scored 26 goals in 44 games across that season) and then what he has done for PSG in terms of his performances and goals to games ratio since then at such a young age (84 goals for PSG in 115 games), I think its fair to say Sancho hasnt scratched the surface of what Mbappe has done already in his short career (Mbappe has won and been a key part of the sides, winning 3 Ligue 1 titles, 1 World Cup and 3 Domestic trophies already in 5 seasons as a professional).

I think Mbappe will hands down be the best footballer of his generation and at this rate, he could do so virtually unopposed because I dont see any outstanding candidates at present who could compete or go past him. Not even Sancho, who I think does have a big future in the game, will reach the same level if Mbappes career continues at this trajectory. I think if he ever moves he will eclipse Neymars fee.
