  1. Kounde for me is the most future center-back in world football. He is only 22 years old and has been playing in the elite since he was 17. He started as a right-back but went on to play as a center-back in the second year at Girondins. Sevilla FC bet on him with 20 years paying € 25M (most expensive transfer in our history). Jules Koundé is 1'78 tall but reaches unexpected places. Seeing him jump is a real spectacle. The taller the striker, the bigger he becomes in the passing game. The secret is in his lower body and an explosive physique. His height is not a problem for his game. But he

  2. Our 12 major signings since Conte and Emenalo left and we took different direction: Jorginho - officially best player in Europe, possible Ballon d Or winner Kepa - even if this is the worst deal ever, does not change the fact that the board is doing great job. 10 great buys and 2 bad is great record for example, and he had great first season with Sarri, just got us 5m in SC, still not giving up on him. Only negative people would focus on Kepa from this list Kovacic - won POTY, great player to have Pulisic - in big period of first season he made us forget Hazard, was amazing

  3. Seeing that second half resilience and mentality with 10 men against a real top attacking team in a hostile atmosphere is more satisfying than anything else. Remember how we capitulated against West brom last season with 10 men. This feels like a moment which signals we're ready to fight for the title this season.

  4. Gonna miss Zouma as a personality and as a solid Chelsea player. Seemed like a huge character around the place and someone everyone loved. West Ham building an extremely solid side. In fact, they may have a more dangerous side than Arse which is hilarious.

  5. This is OTT. Zouma has been a good servant and always given his all for the club which he has been a part of for 7 years now despite his lack of ability. We should pay him the respect he deserves even if we wish him to leave.

  6. Saul on loan for €5M with a €35M buy option is a hell of a deal, hats off to Marina. This again shows it's only a good thing for the club that she doesn't budge in transfer negotiations. Sure we didn't get Kounde in the end but if she caved on that one she would have had to cave with Saul too and got a much worse deal on that one.

  10. Saúl had more shots on target last season than Kanté, Jorginho & Kovačić combined. He gives Chelsea another dimension in midfield with his late runs at the top of the box. Gives other teams something different to worry about. Solid addition in midfield.

  11. Andreas Christensen. Thats the post. Thought he was superb all game. Excellent performance. Especially after the shit he got after the game v Liverpool last season when he got sent off. Also 10 men or not and Anfield crowd or not, first half 11 v 11 for sure we had the best clear cut situations to score, just were missing the final ball. Then after the red, real resilience, most teams would probably crumble under that pressure and with that crowd driving them on. We didn’t. And we looked as if we knew that we wouldn’t drop the points as well. Another massive game where TT got more or

  12. I disagree, situations like the second half are tailor-made for him. Liverpool were pushing forward in numbers and Timo would have had oceans of space, well either that or they dropped their line back 10 yards due to his presence, either-or would have worked for us.

  13. Rom did well. For him. I thought his limitations were also on show however. Heavy touches, poorly weighted passes and ball bobbling around as he tried to move with it. No player is perfect. Let's just try to put him in positions where he can exploit his strengths.

  25. The fact that Ralph has instantly started him first two Southampton games shows how talented he is. Walker-Peters was one of their better players last season, bar Ings and Ward-Prowse and he is has displaced him. Only 18 too. I mean I just give praise to the work of the academy.

  26. Mana, you've been here too long to still be getting annoyed by this. The club persists in this M.O. because it makes sense. If 'cutting the losses' made more sense then that is what CFC would do. Leave those who know to sort out the periphery. Let's focus on the players who will be here trying to help us win matches and leave Marina to worry about the others. Getting agitated about players who won't be around and will play no role for us is a waste of emotional energy and I know you know this.

  30. What I like about him is even at full time, despite the circumstances and his praise of the team to the media, you can see he still wants more. And tactically, would say that again, another big game, another good showing. The second half, you can see the intensity and desire he’s instilled in the players to defend and be solid. I mean someone said tactically and as a coach in general he is better than Conte a while ago and I felt it was too early but I think he so far 3 games in this season (4 including the Super Cup) after a pre season which wasn’t necessarily easy due to the Euros, ther

  31. I'm not going to water this down. I don't like the way you speak about Chelsea players. I have question marks about many members of the squad but I never feel the need to insult them and I can't understand why any Chelsea fan would want to do that. I think Mason is rapidly becoming an enigma in this team. He most certainly does not possess zero talent and zero intelligence. He has plenty of both. Indeed, for the time being, I can't foresee any big game where TT would choose to leave him out. That is going to be the root of the dilemma however. With the current squad Mason is the player we

  38. Hello Chelsea friends. From Seville I want to explain a little how Kounde's situation is because I read many things that are wrong. Sevilla FC. My club never accept any offer for Kounde of 50M €. Last year Sevilla rejected an offer from Manchester City of 55M € and Otamendi. Seville wants between 70M € and 75M €. The player has 3 more years of contract with Sevilla FC and in Spain there is no transfer request but rather the contract termination clause. In Kounde's case, this clause was 80M € until August 15 and 90M € as of that day. Sevilla FC is a selling club. But it d

  39. Just like us, we could finish anywhere between 2 and 6, it didn't matter. United at the moment are cynically managed, conflict and internal issues-ridden club with unclear ambitions and joke of a manager in form of Ole at the wheel, relying on enforcing controversial penalties that belongs to Europa League. This is different planet in terms of ambiton, sport level, mentality and reputation than Juventus. If You criticize Juve for not being good enough and unable to secure national title and CL win and at the same time move to United, you can't be serious. And as far I respect every rival

  41. With the greatest respect to West Ham, Zouma is probably about their level if he's expecting a starting berth (top 8 team pushing for top 4/6). I think it's a good, solid signing for West Ham but on the flipside he has some clear deficiencies on the ball which is why he's not been quite the right fit for us. Around 25-30m is good business and by the sounds of things if we're essentially bringing in Kounde for the equivalent of around 15-20m and Zouma then I think it's potentially more good business. It gives Kounde a season to really bed in, adapt to English football, without being u
