  1. We have been very, very, very lucky to suffer our decline while the whole English football was declining as well. It has allowed us to keep the head out of the water and to win two PL, otherwise we would be right now at the same level as Liverpool. Seeing our inability — or rather, our non-desire — to manage the squad and to renew it properly, in a few seasons we will be in a dangerously dire situation. I mean, ten years ago we had world-class (outfield) players in every position in the field : Terry, Lampard, Cole, Drogba, etc... Now, we have only one and it's Hazard. Abramovich needs to
  2. I do not know why, but I cannot stop imagining him acting as a Roman senator in a 60s peplum...
  3. Naahhh, this is not the issue. Why would we keep wasting million of pounds on the bench when they could be in the bank ? Abramovich is a businessman and he is managing the club like he is managing his business.
  4. If you want more water to your mill : the academy and loan system. Most people believe that we have an army of loanies because of mismanagement and because we do not know how — or whatsoever, anyway — to introduce them in the first team. That is not the case : people need to realize that loaning them is the very purpose of our academy and the very purpose behind buying dozens of average youngsters. Chelsea has become a thrid-party owner institution, just as Joorabchian and co. That is why we buy players whom we know pertinantly will never play for us or have any impact — that is why
  5. If the games against Spurs are anything to go by, I — sadly — do not think it will be the case. When the pace of the game is of high intensity, whether it is through technic or physicality, he seems unable to cope with it. That being said it is a sample too restricted to draw a conclusion. Regardless, I do hope that Bakayoko will add a strong physical presence into the midfield ; as we do not have any playmaker, we need some muscles to bypass this weakness ! P.S. That being said, I am more worried about our attacking play than our defensive...
  6. Tomo, I do appreciate that you are eager to find optimism in this situation but, come on, the players we have signed are an ocean away of being "borderline" world-class, whether in regards to their level or their achivement. Good players ? Sure. Will they be world-class one day ? This is another debate. A world-class striker is someone such as prime Drogba or Suarez — and nobody could ever make the argument that Morata is "borderline" as good as prime Drogba or Suarez. Idem in respect to midfielders, no one could ever hold the argument that Bakayoko is "borderline" as good as Modric, Kroo
  7. Kante is typically the kind of player who is good at what he does, although, what he does is pretty limited.
  8. What kind of message though ? That Chelsa Football Club will be the first club to field ten defenders in their starting eleven ? We have already fielded five yesterday, buying a sixieth one is indeed the right way to go f it is our truly our aim...
  9. And yet it is his sixieth season at the club....... Not trying to make the best out of Hazard is the biggest clue in regards to the fact that those — or should we say the one — who build and manage our squad are — is — out of their depth. Someone really needs to step aside and to hire an ex-footballer who is able to have a decent strategy — having a strategy, even a mediocre one, would be a good start — and who is at the same time able attract great players to this club thanks to his past fame.
  10. Well, we still can go for an Epiphone then.
  11. That is nonsense Fernando and you know it. Juventus did not lose because they played 3-4-3 but because they faced the best team in the world. In 2015, they played with a back four and still lost to Barça — the best team in the world back then. Long story short : they lost because they played against better teams than them. 3-4-3 & 4-2-4 are just forms, neutral forms ; if you have the right players then any tactic, strategy and game-plan are legit. Oh, and by the way, don't lose your sleep regarding whether we play with a back three or four. Either way we will not be in CL final a
  12. The real problem — or rather, one of — is pretty clear right now : we are managed by modern businessmen who think and act like modern businessmen... that is, short-term productivity. Let's take a trivial analogy : a car producer. That man has 100 workers who have produced 100 cars in the year X. For that car producer, who is a modern businessman, the aim for the year X+1 will be (i) either to produce 120 cars with 100 workers or (ii) produce 100 cars with 80 workers. How does it fit with our club ? Well, Conte — or any other manager for that matter — has won the League with 20 playe
  13. Likewise during Ancelotti's the second season in 2010 (i.e. with Kakuta, van Aanholt, Bruma and McEachran), this is not giving them a chance — this is throwing them under the bus. They will be the first victims of the bad management of the squad from the Board.
  14. My friend, this is not football move, let alone a power move. Qatar is in a very dire situation right now — does it no surprise anyone that, in spite of the blocus, they spend amounts of money they never spent before ? It is a political move — that is, propaganda. By signing Neymar for 200m, and perhaps Mbappe too, they send a signal to the world : (i) they still do have plenty of money and the blocus does not remotly affect them, quite the contrary (this means also they can host the WC without any problem) ; (ii) they are giving to children lollipops so they root subliminally for Qatar (
  15. "My idea was to use Matic to sweeten in Bakayoko and ultimately to bench him in a few months when the French will be ready. Unfortunately, the Serbian was having none of that and wanted to leave this club ; and, at the same time, Manchester United did bid a significant amount of money. We thus had to sell and to accelerate the process blah blah...." Indeed. Reading between the lines is cool — but there is not always things to read, between those lines. Sometimes, plain statements are, well, mere plain statements without any hidden meaning. And here, we are most certainly in one of those c
