  3. 'Unstoppable' £150m player wants to move to Chelsea https://www.thechelseachronicle.com/transfer-news/report-unstoppable-150m-rated-gem-wants-to-move-to-Chelsea/ Erling Haaland is said to be intrigued by a move to Chelsea, whether that be this summer or in 12 months’ time. According to the Telegraph, Borussia Dortmund’s priceless striker is apparently attracted by the idea of moving to Stamford Bridge. This should be music to the ears of those associated with Chelsea, who have Haaland extremely high on their transfer wish list. Hurdles for Haaland Plenty still stand

  5. The Athletic’s 10 Euro stars – Alexander Isak: A modern footballing unicorn https://theathletic.com/2611588/2021/06/07/the-athletics-10-euro-stars-alexander-isak-a-modern-footballing-unicorn There is a new type of target man running amok. As top-level football becomes increasingly focused on attacking moves in transition, the attributes needed to play as a lone striker have gone through a rewrite. If Didier Drogba in his Chelsea prime a decade ago was one of many who harkened the dominance of 4-2-3-1 and the end of front men who only worked in the opposition penalty area,
  6. He maybe switching to the Ghana NT too, which means he is gone for a month mid-season if he does so.

  8. Understanding QAnon’s Connection to American Politics, Religion, and Media Consumption https://www.prri.org/research/qanon-conspiracy-american-politics-report/ Three Components of the QAnon Conspiracy Movement The far-right conspiracy theory movement known as QAnon emerged on the internet in late 2017 and gained traction throughout former president Donald Trump’s time in office. QAnon’s core theory revolves around Satan-worshipping pedophiles plotting against Trump and a coming “storm” that would clear out those evil forces, but the movement has also been described as a “b
  9. Strategies for a world without right-wing populism and nationalism The radical right has been setting the agenda in terms of identity and security. Social democrats need to recapture it and redefine Europe. https://socialeurope.eu/strategies-for-a-world-without-right-wing-populism-and-nationalism On the one hand, it has been refreshing to have a year without a global obsession about ‘populism’. On the other hand, Covid-19 has demonstrated how vulnerable are even the most advanced democracies and welfare states, with few governments coming out of the pandemic with a better standin
  10. Stopping the advance of the far right Democracy, activism and the rule of law—key weapons against fascism Fascism is not just sepia images of yesteryear but a contemporary threat. A liberal-left alliance is needed to counter it. https://socialeurope.eu/democracy-activism-and-the-rule-of-law-key-weapons-against-fascism If you search the database of white-supremacist Discord channels, leaked by the monitoring group UnicornRiot since 2018, the word ‘genocide’ appears more than 10,000 times. Often it is in the context of ‘white genocide’—the core concept of the Great Replac
  11. Stuttgart’s Wamangituka reveals real name & age after ‘manipulation’ by ex-agent https://theathletic.com/news/silas-wamangituka-stuttgart-agent-name-age/9WUAkkg1mTAI Stuttgart’s Silas Wamangituka has revealed his name and age were false after being the “victim of manipulation by his former player agent”. Documentation has come to light that, according to Stuttgart, proves the Congolese forward’s real name is Silas Katompa Mvumpa and that he is 22, rather than 21 (his age listed on the Bundesliga’s official website as of 1.30pm BST on June 8).

Boris Johnson refuses to condemn fans booing England taking the knee https://www.theguardian.com/football/2021/jun/07/boris-johnson-refuses-to-condemn-fans-booing-england-taking-the-knee Boris Johnson has said he wants the “whole country” to get behind the England team but has refused to condemn those who booed players taking a knee, as a row over the anti-racism gesture threatens to overshadow the start of Euro 2020. With a slew of Conservative MPs and right-wing commentators stirring up further controversy, fan groups called on those who jeered before two recent friendli
  14. If this is how they react to taking the knee, please keep politicians out of sport The rightwingers who condemn the players’ anti-racism protest are clearly people who don’t even like football https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2021/jun/08/taking-the-knee-politicians-sport-racism-football Let’s keep politics out of football this summer,” intoned Nigel Farage, a politician, releasing his second video about football in a 24-hour period. Nigel has reached the top, which is to say that he now operates out of a loft conversion in an undisclosed location. From this nerve centre,

  17. he had a lacklustre season he is not Chels quality
  18. an update we were at 67 we have 59 players to sort out, whether sell, keep on main team, loan out, renew, release, or keep on reserves/youth the 16 in bold black are big ones (in terms of money spent or their worth) that need to be sorted ASAP, many are damn near worthless now, or a small fraction of what we could have gotten if not for idiotic non sales bold red are ones who might or should have a future here down the road, or at least be able to be sold for decent money Tammy Abraham Marcos Alonso Ethan Ampadu Tino Anjorin Tiemoué Bakayoko Lewis Bake
  19. so (and this is not a trick or a gotcha question) who and what positions should we be addressing via an inbound transfer(s)?
  20. its more than just 3 positions we are not going to play a rigid double pivot with just 2 wingers and one CF every game I will be shocked if that happens and even if we do, you know Mount will sometimes (for better or worse) be in that double pivot we need a scorer, BADLY Jorginho with SEVEN (and all were pens ffs) goals was our top league scorer Werner had 6 Mount had 5 plus a PK for 6 Tammy had 6 but is 90% likely gone Zouma had 5 and is likely gone that is it for 5 or more goals in the league
  21. again you are locking those players into only a few positions, when they almost all can clearly play seeming other than LW RW CF I am going to dig my feet in on this there is ZERO chance bringing in a monster CF upsets the team ffs, we all have been talking about a CF for ages and lord knows we have a shedload of games to make sure all get playing time plus dare I say injuries
  22. you are talking about players who can play (other than Håland) in multiple positions obviously not every single one in ALL of these positions, but many can play in multiple areas and some on either side if need be tossing Håland in (and with Giroud and Tammy leaving) certainly is not an 'upset the apple cart' manoeuvre RW LW CF SS False 9 AMF and in CHO's case, RWB same for Mbappe in a perfect world I want them both by season start of 2022/23 screw Ziyech and potentially CHO, especially if they fail again this coming sea
  23. define high profile here are the players we have, who (NOT counting injuries forcing them to start, like a Zouma) who are good enough to start at least some of the time Edouard Mendy Andreas Christensen Antonio Rüdiger Thiago Silva Ben Chilwell Reece James César Azpilicueta N'Golo Kanté Jorginho Mateo Kovacic Billy Gilmour (will be loaned out) Mason Mount Kai Havertz Hakim Ziyech Callum Hudson-Odoi Christian Pulisic Timo Werner there simply are not
  24. Kante makes half that £144,231 per week thsi was sorted out here on TC two years ago the £290K PW figure was from stupid foreign sources who assumed UK salaries were quoted in net terms, so they just doubled it for the gross, and the duncey brit press picked up on it the highest paid Chels player atm is Chilwell, at £190K per week Spotrac and Capology are the gold standards, all the major papers and sites use then https://www.spotrac.com/epl/Chelsea-fc/payroll/ https://www.capology.com/club/Chelsea/salaries/
