  1. https://www.sportbible.com/absolute-Chelsea/transfer-nathan-ake-manchester-city-Chelsea-asking-price-20220630 shit source but apparently city are trying to ward off our ake interest with a 50m price tag hope Its true no way we pay 50m for that bang average player i hated the kounde rumour which luckily has cooled but he at least has outstanding bounce, pace, flair, dribbling and technical ability for a cb. An ill fit but a special player. Ake is just mediocre in every aspect of the game. Even as AC replacement he would not fit the bill. Would be one of the most bori

  2. To be fair, you've implied what I'm going to say but I'd like to make it explicit. All of us here have confidence in our football opinions, which is why we take the trouble to type them out day after day. I readily admit that I have a strong belief in my ability to judge a footballer but, even so, I've made misjudgements. I won't speak for anyone else but I've made mistakes and not quite too few to mention. I think all we need to have is the integrity to say yep, I got that one wrong, and we can get back to listing out all of the ones we feel we got right.

  3. There are so many things wrong with Barca atm. Here are a couple of reasons why they won't be signing people: 1) Short term debt. Not only are Barca €1.5bn in debt, around €350m of this is in short term loans. Barca are currently rated about one level above junk and are needing to refi in a market where rates are going through the roof. At best their liabilities on that portion of the debt is going up 2% but it'll probably be more like 4% (so around €8m a year just to pay off the interest.) Then you get to the medium term debt, which will also be impacted by the current rate increa

  6. Azpi wanted to stay at Marseille, Cesc wanted a return to Arsenal. The only signing players who consider us first choice is just not realistic.

  7. If Ake is costing in the 50m region, it is much better to go after Kounde then a guy who has struggled to get playing time on a team we are trying to catch up on.

  8. Telegraph reporting we enquired about Richarlison last night when Spurs were getting close and once were aware of the price we backed off. Hardly sounds like a hijack scenario if true.

  9. Yeah, lets give them the money for Sterling and Ake so they can buy De Ligt. Get De Ligt first in and after give them the money for Sterling.

  11. Ah, the transfer season, what a delightful time of the year, especially for football fans who are scrambling around trying to find out everything that is going on surrounding every little story that comes out. I get it, I LOVE this time of the year myself; I find it thrilling, dramatic, and it really fuels […] View the full article

  12. That's pretty my major concern about him especially the fact that the league is coming is so pacy coupled with the pressure..

  13. After doing some digging if seems the Juve fans are pretty happy to see De Ligt going. Some see potential in him but the majority say he is makes many mistakes and looks slow and laboured in too many games. Will he he cope in the Prem?? Watching the highlights of his Ajax days... he looks top draw but his Juve clips, he looks pretty average to me.

  14. No, I don't think this is true. I didn't know anything about him when he was first linked. It wasn't until autumn of 2011 that we had seen enough of Rom for it to become clear he wasn't Chelsea level. Should have just taken Everton's money two and a half years later and be done with it.

  16. Way I see it. Dembele was/is our first choice. We couldn't just wait around for him to make a decision to stay or leave Barca. If we wait and Dembele decided to stay, we'd have probably lost Raphinha to Arsenal by not acting fast enough. By bidding we've put ourselves in a position to get Raphinha done. Or if Barca execute lever 66 or w/e and go for Raphinha, then Dembele is definitely leaving. Win win situation either way. By doing nothing and waiting we could've easily end up with neither.

  17. I mean he was "seen" about as much as Alonso and Chilwell were, players who have done a hell of a lot more for this club. Usually I'd take these type of stories with a pinch of salt but it fits in exactly with his behaviour down the years.

  21. Bravo to the club if we buy Ake just to give them money and space for De Ligt.

  22. Breaking: Chelsea and #ManCity are 'getting closer' to an agreement for Nathan Ake, with an offer of almost £40M on the table. [via @SkyKaveh]

  23. I hope we don't sign Lukaku. He will no doubt be another disaster striker signing. At best he was OK in EPL and I cannot believe he will be any better after his time in Serie A. The amount mentioned is way too much and I would rather we sign Danny Ings, who is every bit as good if not better than Lukaku. Complete waste of Money and if this happens he may be ranked in Same Category as Kepa and Shivshenko August 3, 2021 23,754 replies This is what I had said about Lukaku Aug 21. I am saying the same about Raphina, Dembele and most importantly Rah

  25. Wish people would stop bringing up Ampadu all the time. He has shown nothing out on loan to suggest that he’ll ever be Chelsea quality.
