Lol this made my day :D 

What makes you believe we could have bought him this summer??? The same thing that happened to Stones last summer, happened to Koulibaly,Romagnoli and Naingollan this summer. So wait a minute, Jose also had unrealistic targets last season like Stones???

New coach, same old problems because the problem is not the coach, it's the board.

Last year,Everton said that Stones in not for sale.After playing a shit year at Everton,Everton would of course sell Stones to the club that gives them the most money.City bought Stones for an big amount of money.Last year,Pogba did not want to leave.According to Pogba´s agent,Chelsea bid around 90 millions,but neither Juventus wanted to sell Pogba nor Pogba wanted to leave.That was a unrealistic target.

We could have gottenStones if we really wanted him,but Naingollan did not want to leave,Koulibaly and Romagnoli are not for sale,so that are targets that cannot be bought for any price.Don´t waste any time on unrealistic targets.

Well we shipped 6 in 4 against the same teams last season so 2 in 2 is already an improvement.

I think people underestimate the difference Kante makes, he will help us control games more and the amount of times he cuts balls out before they can get to our defense is unreal.

He'll make a huge difference especially against the smaller sides. Even with him in our team I think we'll struggle against the United/City/Arse/Spuds/Liverpool's of the league because he'll have to pick up so much slack due to Matic and Cesc being woeful.

Lets see what happens when world class players are pressing r midfield and breaking through to our defense. Might not be pretty.

Well unrealistic targets became realistic for Man Utd and City... I just hope we don't become Arsenal because every class player is also unrealistic target for them.

Maybe because they waited one season and met the asking price of the selling club.

I am quite sure that Napoli will sell Koulibaly for 60 mio. next season

We wont struggle vs Arsenal, even last season they created nothing against us.

Also did Antonio say first choice transfer targets or targets full stop? If its the former I'm guessing Maskimovic will be the one we try and get now.

As usual, Chelsea TV was having issues so I couldn't actually watch the presser, but judging by the quotes I think he's saying his top choices may not be attainable. Let's hope Maksimovic happens.

When you get managers like Mourinho and Conte who are not good for youth, then you will get little done....well to be fair Conte might a bit better then Mourinho in that situation. 

But you need to get managers like Pochetinno for that.

Well that's not good news! Like I said expect another window like before where we were linked to top players and end up with merieles. Stop gaping will not work! Our defense is terrible and we won't keep clean sheets. 

I doubt we can make it until Jan being in a decent league position. Clubs don't even want to sell in Jan, this window was the best time to do business

Didn't watch the PC but I read the quotes and I got a lot of 'Wenger' vibes from them. I hope that he and the club aren't getting their excuses in early for us failing to get top 4 this season.

Whereas Wenger is an old, stubborn fool who never seems to have plans in place in the transfer window, Conte has known for a while what's he's wanted to bring in and makes it sound like the club aren't able to. Wenger needs to be slapped in the face with a couple of poor results and a slow start each season before he realizes he needs to reinforce.

I feel like our club genuinely believe that Conte is a miracle worker and can simply reinvigorate the players we have and get top 4. Just like they did last summer with Mourinho.

We really must be brain damaged if we go for a Fiorentina player. As if they would even consider making business with us after the Salah fiasco.

Meh, if this is how it's going to be done I hope he leaves soon. For his own sake.
Waste of a wonderful coach at this club.

He might resign after the end of season if the club continues with it's shenanigans. 

He left Juventus for this, why he should put up with something worse?

Regardless of how much blame Antonio himself shares in this, he will be the one to bare most of the consequences.

THIS is so true.If the board doesn't want to spend much money and what's us to develop players like Ajax,Psv,Porto,Benfica and others do then we shouldn't have appointed Conte don't get me wrong Conte can get the most out of his players and is much better with youth than Mourinho but he still needs signings.Look at Pochettino or Koeman they can't sign big players they will mostly use the youth and Evertoon and Tottenham don't have a really good youth but we probably have one of the best academy/youth and then someone like Pochettino/Koeman would be perfect for us.

Well we would never win anything by "developing players". But yh if we are going that way then the board must have got a coach who can develop young players.
