  1. Bale would be more likely and a better fit then Isco/Asensio. He also wants to play more, although may not want to come here with us having no CL and his Tottenham history.
  2. Great signing, very few players who dictate play like Jorginho from a deep position
  3. https://metro.co.uk/2018/05/30/why-chelsea-are-in-a-state-of-limbo-over-maurizio-sarri-and-antonio-conte-7590524/ 'Sarri takes home a relatively modest £1.3m a year, but his release clause is set at £7m. That expires at the end of May, at which point Sarri will be able to resign at a cost of £500,000 but Napoli will be due a compensation package from any club he joins afterwards. If, as it seems, Chelsea are unwilling to meet Sarri’s release clause, then they will hope to negotiate a lower fee once the May 31 deadline has passed. Reports in Italy suggest a fee of £3.5m would be accepted.'
  4. To think we could've had Jorginho and Fabinho for not much more than Bakayoko and Drinkwater
  5. We aren't spending big on a player about to turn 30. If anything it's a move to give the impression we're willing to spend big. We couldn't negotiate a deal for Dzeko or Llorente, and struggled to sign Giroud.
  6. He hasn't been good enough for years
  7. The club obviously want a yes man, who will accept every situation thrown at them. Problem is this kind of manager won't bring the success the club want. Either the club back the manager more with his own players, or accept less success. Of those potential replacements only Allegri, and possibly Simeone are close to Conte's level.
  8. Must be depressing for him that the club rated Cahill and Rudiger as better players
  9. I hate watching him play, such a liability when he's anywhere close to goal - just keeps backing off
  10. Don't get why we keep targeting 30+ strikers. The club are clearly looking for any excuse not to spend on an older striker. Even if we set a "deadline" if Arsenal came back and accepted the offer, why would we then pull out? We've signed no one else Also, the club only offer one year contracts to players over 30 (with very little flexibility on this) - which our targets will never accept (why would they if they have a a longer contract elsewhere?).
  11. Shouldn't be long before Ampadu starts ahead of him - he's more composed, reads the game better, better under pressure...
  12. I agree they're mediocre like most of the players we've signed. In which case it makes sense to keep them to make up the numbers, and only spend on players who can actually improve us.
  13. Conte needs to utilise our young players more to make up the squad. I think RLC and Barkley are basically the same player, Chalobah would do as well as Drinkwater. Ake could've developed into a left sided Azpilicueta. Musonda could do more. By not making those signings that's £65/70m that could've then been spent on someone who'd instantly improve the first 11. But the club seem obsessed with inflating the squad with average players, ending up with a squad where it's the same one or two players responsible for creating and scoring goals.
  14. Its got to be more then a one year contract, you don't sign a player for £25m who can then leave for free in a year.
