  1. 9 points clear, rivals dropped points, I'll take it. Obviously no major marquee signings coming in at the deadline but some depth needed. Hopefully the missed penalty stings Costa and he comes back a possessed beast next match!
  2. Just give Antonio a contract for life. I'm over the moon with the way he has handled buisness. From the players, staff and media, this club has the look and feel of a family and what a statement by Conte's men today in the face of fake news attempts by fan boy journalists of other clubs trying desperately to unsettle them. Media took a fat L today.
  3. National Team merchant.
  4. With Leicester up next I could see Conte not wanting to take risks and just throw that same bunch out there yet again praying Fab can save his ass with 5 minutes to go again.
  5. Backpedal Gary, Captain of England lol. British pundits like Neville give Luiz stick but not a peep out of them about Cahill. Must give Courtois sleepless nights.
  6. Opponents don't fear him in attack. Give him acres of space because they know his crosses are shit. Can't buy Conte's excuse that Alonso was a week away from being ready. That's bullshit.
  7. He sure was quick to tweet his excitement for a team Brazil call up right after that loss. He wants to emulate Lampard and isn't fit to tie Lamp's shoes. He's better fitted for Serie A.
  8. Fab has been a total professional and it boggles my mind why the guy who created more chances than all of Swansea in his limited minutes can't start in a midfield of Kante and Oscar.
  9. If you want Eden Hazard to stay it's signings like James Rodriguez that will help. Not the fricking Marcos Alonsos of the world. Roman would do it if James is down. For reporters to say he wouldn't is bullcrap. Roman lives for splashy signings like this. Don't even start with "where does he fit in or well so and so would have to be benched but won't like it" because it wasn't that many years ago that Chelsea had literally two starting elevens that could win the league which is what you need if you want to call yourself a "big club" or just keep signing ideal Stoke type signings and hope Conte
  10. Welcome back Geezer! Your penalty kick against Bayern lives forever in my mind..legend. Luiz may be unpredictable but he's passionate and leaves it all on the pitch. Welcome back David.
  11. Bottom line in all this is the board yet again didn't get their window of need sorted out and have to dig through the pile that Stoke and Hull dig through to get players in. Conte needs a heart to heart with Roman about ditching the imbociles handling transfers.
  12. low risk high reward. I can say that about Jay Desilva coming in.
  13. For fucks sake, Nathan Ake was loaned out for this fucking guy?
  14. Fans can call it an improvement but to me that's just because this back four is starved of bodies at this point. The club has lost any leverage bargaining finishing where they did and to get back to greatness meant paying the buyout clauses but instead the board for a second year running waits until the last minute for another panic buy! A player Conte never planned on buying and instead has to figure out how to get the best out of him because Emenalo likes birthday parties and wants Conte to give him a f%cking magic show
  15. Keep your foot on the gas pedal boys, don't try to sit back and absorb pressure after a goal.
  16. 31 or whatever loaners with more waiting for deals at Cobham yet there's only 5 defenders and two trustworthy strikers available. Why Emenalo hasn't been fucking shitcanned at this point is amazing.
  17. Time to move on. Besides what's the harm in Zouma coming back, Brana for emergency purposes and if it gets real bad there's Fikayo Tomori if he hasn't already been loaned out. I say this because there's a certain Andreas Christensen who looks the part and it's my preference he lines up next to Zouma next year when his 2 year loan deal is up. My real concern this transfer window lies with full back depth.
  18. The club finished 10th. Other clubs know that this club is desperate to get back into the Champions League and they aren't stupid they want to make Chelsea pay through the nose but Emenalo doesn't get it. The board is too arrogant to meet the sums and its bit them in the ass. They lost their leverage finishing 10th. Instead Emenalo will find more Papys and Hectors out there and this defense will continue to ship in more goals.
  19. So Matic leaves but Mikel stays. Lol. At least Chalobah looks to be staying but I feel the coddling with long term servants like Iva and JT get, so too will Mikel and he'll knock Nathaniel down the pecking order. I don't get it. Why would Matic leave when the new manager has shown confidence in him unless the club getting Kante insulted him which is hilarious considering he struggled last season and has no excuse to complain he's the #1 guy.
  20. Conte: "I call and he calls me often. I spoke with Carlo and he told me about #CFC very, very well. We spoke about people who work here" Carlo said watch your back around Emenalo
  21. Conte so far clearing out Emenalo's questionable buys like Baba, Papy, soon Miazga and Hector on loans. To quote this from a blog called Pride of London, a nice summary of Emenalo the leader and legend... " Emenalo became Technical Director of the club in 2011. Here are some stats (via transfermarkt.com). Since 2011 Chelsea have been involved in 186 player transactions (either sales or loans). Of those players only 20 ended up staying with the club and during that time Chelsea have spent the not-so-small sum of £568.65 million. Just so we’re clear that is a hit rate of 9.3%. That’s r
  22. If RLC wasn't an academy player, he'd be getting a lot of "sell him or loan him" stick. Other than being big in stature what does he excel really well at to argue giving him a spot in the starting eleven? He can't even beat out Matic or Oscar who both STILL look like shit. The striker experiment didn't pan out, what next, compete with Terry and Cahill? The club market him as the jewel of the academy and frankly he doesn't deserve any of it tbh and I think the club is afraid to loan him out after all the hype for fear of egg on their faces. He's gonna rot on that bench and get loaned out in Ja
  23. Everything is fresh and youth getting their chances but I'll hold back the love until the regular season kicks off and these same impressive youths are still here and places are given to those who earned it not because of their friggin names and wages.
