    No idea what you're on about squire so I'll sign off although I hope to read more posts about accounting and number crunching from you it's riveting..

    Not more than you going on about the typos. I hope you go about asking all of them what exactly their typos mean. Nothing would beat that mate, can't wait.

    Maybe I should start making OTT and nonsensical post about "net spend" even though no football club has that as a measure for it's transfer dealings 😂.

    Of course they do ! Every club in England and on every football forum fans have a go at the board and players it's part and parcel of being a fan.. Arsenal fans hate their board, Man United fans hate the Glaziers, West Ham fans hate the dildo brothers. there's been demos at recent matches. Arsenal fans booed Xhaka off the pitch recently.

    No need to leave out the 2 way street argument then?

    You don't call fellow Chelsea fans arseholes and idiots just because they have a different point of view to you. I'm not a grammar nazi at all mate although I have no idea what soecially means :D

    "Fans" don't go about dissing board at every opportunity and calling players "donkeywater" do they?

    It's a 2 way street. If you are willing to abuse the players, then you should not have problem accepting some hard comments. Or you can just show respect if you want it. 

    Typos amuse you, good to know. Lol. And interesting.

    Leave it out with the high and mighty bollocks mate.Anyone who thinks people lie in buckets shouldn't be calling people idiots.

    Hmmm. True just because one confuses buckets and brackets because English is not the first language should definitely not be speaking their minds. 

    Anyways, don't need your advice. I will speak my mind soecially when someone acts like know-it-alls while clearly they have no idea about it or how the finances work. 

    Also, I have written my points to support the board. Do you have anything to say to that, or do you just go around being a grammar nazi?

  5. Villa are paying his wages in full. Burnley paid half of his as per reports. So what's that? A total of 2.5m. 

    Again, that makes it whole "loss" on the books as 10.5mil. which would mean we would have had to find some team to buy DD for 13.5 m. Best of luck finding that. I am sure a genius in transfers who has no actual fucking background in finance or scouting could definitely have got that deal done, right? 

    Yes, the whole DD transfer had a poor ring to it from the start, but you don't self combust and make more stupid decision. You try to somehow mitigate it, which the board is trying to do. Understand that. I know it will be hard for an idiot, who considers themselves as a know-it-all to "understand" but it's never too late. 

    For every DD their is an azpi, gc, Eden, Costa, cesc, matic, mats etc etc. Where we have bought well and sold well. We have a net spend of 100m in the last 5 seasons, arsenal have 240 and United upwards of 500. We are ahead of both of them. Along with that, we have now become self sufficient and have shown profits in 3 of the last 5 seasons. So the FACTS show that OvERALL the board has done a good job (not just one or 2 individual transfers). 

    So I personally would consider all of these facts rather than stupid ramblings and rantings and honestly, the same shitty posts again and again of an idiot regarding the board 

  6. "drinkwater" (last time I checked that was his name) was bought for 40m in 2017.

    Which means at the start of this summer, 24mil of his fee was still left to on our books.

    If we kept him, we got a loss of 8mil of his value (considering we did not pay his wages). If we sold him for even 15m we Got a loss of 24-15 = 9mil on our books and that is considering literally anyone would have even paid 15m for him.

    And that's the difference between people on the board who actually know what they are doing and then on the other end of the spectrum are idiots and assholes trying to prove to the world that they actually know everything about something that they clearly have 0 idea about. 

    There is a reason these "fans" are sitting behind a screen trying to earn brownie points out of fellow "fan" while there are those doing the real thing and making the club self sustainable in a very very short period of time. 

    I for one know who I will put my trust in, and it won't be the idiots for sure.

    It's ridiculous that he's still in our books. 

    What profit? He's worth 1m maybe 2m max. What you said makes sense to do with someone like Kenedy who is worth probably around 10m but not with this guy. And new rules regarding loan players are coming. 

    As much as we would like to pretend that it's not, I am sure even 1m/2m is a lot of money, even for a mega football club like Chelsea. 

    Yes, Kennedy also lies in the same bucket, but there is also the problem of the player accepting the contract. Kenedy might be asking for wages which the club think might make any transfer of his unachievable. I am not saying I know it all, but I also find it difficult and ridiculous to believe that the board of one of the biggest clubs in the world is getting everything wrong (according to some fans on here), where as the truth is that within a span of 5 years, we have become a club which used to be working on whatever change and scrap we could get from RoMan's pockets to one which is self sufficient now (a profit of 5m over the course of last 5 seasons) compared to a loss of around 100+ mil in 5 years before that period.

    So don't believe the rants of one particular poster on here who is continuously ridiculing the board. They are doimg a decent job. 

    As for the new loan rule. It's now official as of yet, is it? Even if it was, Nathan's loan is a 6 month loan, which makes his transfer in the summer quite viable.

    Why is it ridiculous? Care to explain?

    His contract was up in 6 months, we would have got nothing for him. In this way he is barely on our books (bought back in 2014 for a meagre 4mil, so his amortized value would be in thousands literally) and i am sure mineiro would be paying his wages. So where is the loss exactly? In this way if we sell him next year, his profit will be recorded on our 20/21 financial books when we would actually be needing the money to buy players, rather than the 19/20 books where we already have the hazard and the rest sales as well as we dont look to be buying anyone. So I think this is good business by the board. 

    Obviously the doom and gloom merchants and the "we know better than the board" brigade would have you believe otherwise, but believe me, this is a decent thing that the board has done.

    The likes of Lautaro and Dybala are key parts of their clubs. Why would Inter or Juve sell either? Especially with Conte and Sarri in charge, neither of which will maintain good thoughts of Chelsea. Conte in particular would probably do anything in his power to never sell us a player.

    This. People have no actual idea of how anything actually works and yet try to come out looking like big shots and dissing on the board.

    I'd take Dembele and Ake just for the sake of seeing somebody shaking Marinas hand. Transfer windows have become dead boring these days. 

    On the other hand, we are not pressing the panic button and getting things done in a lot better way.

    You know these individual, Team of the Year awards don't mean much, right? It's just like how the UEFA Team of the Year - or whatever it's called these days - always has the likes of Sergio Ramos, Marcelo etc in it even when they were not the best defenders that year. IIRC, there was the silly inclusion of Pogba in last season's Premier League Team of the Season and another example more closer to home, Hazard winning the 2018/19 Europa League Player of the Year award, even though Giroud was more deserving of it. 

    Totally agree. Trying to justify your opinion using the "team of the year" argument is just lol.

    We can crib all we want, azpi is our best left back of the decade. Sad, but true.

    Let's milk them every penny like they did us for Alex Sandro. 

    This. Let's keep increasing the price every day, and at the last moment pull the plug and sell to inter for a decent fee. Hate juve for the Sandro fiasco

    You're not wrong but we have 3 days between today and Sunday and then a week off for the next league game. 

    I guess what I was trying to say is, I don't get why you picked Pedro over Pulisic, for example. :lol: 

    Just came back from Injury. I would not risk him. That's the only reason.

    I would play James instead of Lamptey. James needs minutes to develop. He used to play a lot last Season and nowadays he does not.

    Fair enough. But considering he has just come back from Injry, would not risk him

    As much as this game is in a few days' time, I'm not sure we should rotate that much given it's our only realistic shot at a trophy this season and Nottingham Forest seem to be doing well at the moment. 

    Top 4 trumps fa cup trophy for me. Today we looked so leggy in the 2nd half. Tammy, azpi, zouma, Rudi, Kante, willian have played 4 in 10 games. For me, they should not be in the match day squad.

    Agree with forest and their quality, won't be an easy game, but if I had to choose, it would be a chance at top4 than the fa cup.

    Still deluding yourself he is overachieving when it's just because the other teams around us are just as embarrassing if not worse than us? No wonder you got banned on the theshedend as well didierforever, put me on ignore and spare me from listening to your divine judgement and leave me in my "ignorance".

    It's not just ignorance. It's down right asenine, trollish behaviour. Like I said before, this is not what a "fan" is. Maybe a plastic who can only support when the team wins.

    But keep on moaning, cribbing and bitching. And then shift your allegiance when and where you want.

    I'd get Pochettino immediately if I could.

    @Tomo care to explain this. Again the same dude. I mean should not the line be drawn somewhere.

    In a season where we lost hazard, had a transfer ban, have 5/6 young players breaking through and when most did not expect us to finish in top 6, we are fucking 4th and such "fans" want frank sacked. "Sacked" let that sink in. Shameful.

    Klopp only sorted his defence out by buying VVD. Otherwise they would be half the defence they are today.

    Laporte injured and Guardiola not able to sort his defence out. Let‘s wait for our transfer windows. Still we need to do better against shit teams.

    Exactly this. Well put mate.
