Did anyone see the headed goal against Juve Sunday, nobody but nobody was going to get to that ball but him.

Was a cracker. But I always thought Happy would get like that with the size of his bonce.

He was MOTM too.

Il Messaggero are reporting thatChelsea are again considering launching a bid for Kalidou Koulibaly this summer and remain interested in his boss at Napoli, Maurizio Sarri

Centre-back Koulibaly would apparently cost around €60m.

I like Koulibali. If we can get him, I think we should.

After a year out on loan for experience I believe Reece James will be ready to start for Chelsea. At the beginning of the 2019/20 season he'll be approaching his 20th birthday. That's fearfully young for a centre back but the lad is the absolute real deal. He will be a Chelsea player and he will be ready while still a teenager. Dave, Reece & KK as starters, with Andreas, Tony and one other to round out the CB group, would make us really well set at that position.

Kalidou Koulibaly on course to change his agent to Fali Ramadani (the guy who deals with Chelsea about Maurizio Sarri)

Would be quite a sight to see Sarri & Koulibaly for Chelsea. Between KK/Rudi/AC/Azpi/Cahill/ potentially Zouma we are fully loaded at CB. I think Azpi can play RB for Sarri though as he is very similar to Hysaj.

Cahils time for fresh pastures I hope. And i dont think AC OR Happy good enough I'm sad to say as i like them both.

Telles/Emerson  Rudi  KK  Dave

@Unionjack I agree with you on Cahill, but I think he will run out his contract here. Happy, perhaps you're right im not wed to the idea of him and if someone wanted to pay us enough i would reluctantly agree. AC however i disagree entirely, he showed extreme promise this year. He is going to be a great player for us in the coming years and hopefully more. He offers us something different to KK/Rudi. at Napoli KK excelled along side Albiol, AC is our Albiol & will be a wonderful CB in a sarri team.

 

ADL won't want to lose KK and the asking price will be absolutely sky high, thats why im not expecting him but he would look real good in Chelsea blue.

Not saying get rid of AC of course not but I do think he had some rough times this year.

And was thinking IF we sold the likes of Pedro,Alonso,Morata,Cahill,Luiz,Drinks,Barkley,Zappa,Cescy,Kenedy,Aina,Brown,Baba,Miazga,etc etc etc that would be enough to get a couple. Put it to whatever we get given and we might have the makings of a good team

If we do get sarri I could see Barkley Do well under him sarri likes an attacking midfielder in his midfield trio like hamsik was in his team  I would let RLC and Barkley battle it out who gets that role in midfield

I definitely agree with the bolder part I actually said that in another thread.. in fact we have more pressing matters than that of needing a CB at Chelsea.. we need a CM (Seri/Jorginho) we need a RW (Bailey/Mahrez) and will need a top finisher/st if we sell one of Morata or Bats.. in terms of financing this sales of players like Luiz/Willian or Pedro/Drinkwater/Zappacosta/ loanees like Kasey Palmer/Izzy Brown/Piazon/Nathan/Lewis Baker/Kalas and the many more we know won’t have a role here

Also I’d keep MVG in the squad as well back up for Kante he’s shown he has an eye for pass and goal while in the erdivise

If alonso is pushed out and Emerson starts I’d see Luke Shaw on a free or Jay DaSilva brought back for our right back I’d promote Dujon  Sterling to first team duties behind Azpi - personally I’d keep Barkley in the squad as well keep Tammy as a striker

I read this part from a Sarri article:  "Empoli’s team had consisted of a number of youngsters, and by no coincidence. “At Empoli youngsters grow as a result of their mistakes,” Sarri said, a man who prides himself on developing players individually, and with care. The likes of Simone Verdi, Daniele Rugani and Riccardo Saponara all grew tremendously under Sarri’s tutorship. It is an area in which he invests a great deal of time."

Baks has got better as the sason went on IMO. I was a firm believer he was a bag of shite but I'm open to the idea he will be better next season. I'll leave it till winter window with an open mind.
