It's a Geordie accent Newcastle. This is from an English drama from the 80's the actor is a bloke called Jimmy Nail (massive twat) he's got a really strong Geordie accent you might need subtitles for this :)

 

You are right ... This is some really strong Accent ... The only Thing I was able to understand was "Newcastle United" at 00:35 ... And the Word "rubbish" somewhere along the Way ...  :D

Think 35M is a bit excessive, good to get a MF player in but like I said in the Bakayoko thread regarding Matic and Chalobah, don't think Drinkwater is a huge upgrade on Chalobah, who looked more than capable of holding his own last year or even close to Nemanja

The price is reflective of the market, he's a player that will give you at worst 7/10 and at best 9/10, he's a grafter and put's himself about.

The Matic thing has gone, Conte will get the maximum from Danny.

He is British player, that alone add at least 10m

Completely agree about Chalobah. I was always impressed when watching him play. Mobile, tall, and quick midfielder, who gives you a bit of flash, and works hard.

I've actually been a fan of Matic.  I don't think he should get the stick here that he does.

I didn't say anything like why did we sell Matic and get Drinkwater in respect to their qualities.  Personally, I think they're pretty similar, which is why I scratch my head.  So, my question was more like what's the point?  Isn't it a bit like selling a Honda Civic, then stressing about trying to find a Toyota Carolla?  Why bother?

I've said numerous times that Bakayoko + Drinkwater >>>  Matic + Chalobah. 

I agree that the narrative that we've sold Matic to buy Drinkwater isn't exactly the correct narrative.  Bakayoko is going to get Matic's minutes which is a better fit for us.  But, for a time, we had both Matic and Bakayoko.  Which is what Conte wanted, apparently.

So, on the other hand, the narrative that Bakayoko is Matic's replacement and Drinkwater is in for Chalobah is true, it's not the full story either.  This assumes that having Bakayoko and Matic wasn't an option.

Now, maybe it wasn't an option.  I'm not too involved in the homegrown status of our squad, I don't know if it absolutely needed to happen.  To go back to a previous analogy, I can understand selling your Civic for a Carolla if you live in a town that will only let you drive a Toyota.  But, if it's not necessary, then what's the point of doing all the work?

 

Your rationale is sound if your premise is sound. I don't think that your premise is however.

I don't think it will be long before you are posting to recognise that Danny D is in fact a better player than Nemanja. I believe that he is better in every aspect of the game. More sound and more agile in possession, not locked out of half a pitch worth of options by chronic one footedness, sharper into the challenge, better stamina. Not a world beater but a Matic beater for sure.

One of us has this wrong. Let's face it, we should both be hoping that it's you. Me being right is good for Chelsea, you being right teaches me a lesson but Chelsea fans everywhere pay the price.

I'm hoping that I'm not right and that Drinkwater is miles better than Matic was for us.  I'd be over the moon to have 2 great CM options on the bench for rotation or for flexibility if we wanted to go with a 3 man CM.

We'll see what happens.

If Chalobah was more than capable of holding his own, why would the club/manager want to loan him out after the sale of Matic? 

The kid has skill but he's better off trying to hone his skill at a mid-table side.

But does that really mean that Drinkwater is any better than him? Let's not forget Drinkwater has been playing for a mid table team in the PL other than the outstanding year hey won the title. I don't see anything in Danny's game than isn't in Chalobah's. Chalobah's age goes against him possibly for a rotation role because young guys wants to play every week but he has already shown in limited game time last season and already for Watford so far this season he is more than good enough to hold his own in the PL.

Lets not forget that in that mid table team there was a kante and in that OUTSTANDING year drinkwater stood side by side with kante, lets not beat around the bush that midfield was SOLID as fuck.
