  1. They have played five matches in the last two weeks and traveled through Europe twice and still they have to play some nothing club in EL Q less than 48 hours after this and then United at the week end. Really no excuses if Chelsea do not get through to the next round.
  2. Refreshing to hear Rudiger is slowly but surely pushed out of the club - never fancied him, terrible defender and definitely one of the dumbest footballers I have ever watched play the game. As for Declan Rice - it has been a superb transfer window so far for Chelsea and I agree with all the signings, think the club have done a great job, but it would be a mistake to spend so much money on Rice, he is not Chelsea quality, never will be IMHO. I used to laugh when he was strongly linked to United and somehow pray they would stupidly throw 60-70M down the bin for him just like they did with
  3. Think it is the manner of how the team was set up to play that has made the fans angry, rather than the result. It really was a coward display, a reminiscence of JM Mk II, a packed midfield, a creative no. 10 played on the wing, another midfielder on the other just to track back - everything to try to nullify Liverpool's strenghts, rather than imposing our own game. This is not good enough for a club of this calibre playing at home.
  4. Gets a free pass this time just because it is going to be a different type of season, at least the first one or two months and for me personally this are, let's say, some sort of pre season matches for our club given there was no proper pre season and the many transfers that we did. Clubs like Bayern, Liverpool, City, Madrid etc. that have had little to no departures and play the same line up for some time are going to do just fine and will hit the ground running. We did not concede before the red card, but still those were coward tactics, it was as if City was playing fucking MK Dons, ok
  5. Ten years later and we finally get our own Sergio Aguero. Elite player with a warrior mentality.
  6. Yeah I don't get the Mason Mount hate from some people either, he might not be the flashiest of attacking midfielders, but he is a very good player to have in your squad, think he will eventually turn out to be England's next James Milner which frankly is not a bad thing, they both seem to be very similar in many ways, at least in my opinion.
  7. Don't know what to make of RLC's performance, think the guy lives in his own world where he thinks he is on Mbappe's level when actually he is not fit to lace Ashley Westwood's boots. He is so lazy and does not even look like he is trying to make things work in his favour, can't remember the last time he's had a decent cameo, always a passenger, hopefully he gets his shit sorted and stops riding that 'coming of an injury' BS, he simply does not do the basics right, this has nothing to do with the injury.
  8. COYB!!! Buzzing for this, hope we make a statement tonight. And maybe one of 'ze Germans' score
  9. I truly feel like a spoiled rich kid what a transfer window this is!!!
  10. So I am reading this article from Spanish newspaper Sport, FC Barcelona's mouthpiece, on Messi's supposed contract with City - five year deal on 100M Euro/year (before or after tax, they do not mention) and a 250M Euro signing on bonus, payable over three years. Accurate or not, this is absurd money. City and Paris have unlimited funds and they can easily pay not only one contracts like this, but five. But how can any club struck a deal like this and stay within the FFP rules it is beyond my understanding.
  11. Just the simple fact that the club signed TS makes me somehow calm and shows that FL acknowledged that defence is a big problem because to be honest I was a bit worried he'd might only sign Chilwell for the back line and ignore the other important area, the center of defence, where there is actually a very big problem because the way I see it Chelsea probably have THE worst centre backs out of all the big clubs, I have written on this board before but I think they are simply useless, especially Rudiger who I do not rate at all because he simply lacks the basics and the intelligence to play for
  12. It is not any shiny toy, it is a world class defender with tons of experience that just happened to have played a CL final a week ago. You listed four players that have been strong characters and true leaders in the dressing room and four captains on the pitch, now there is no player with big balls in this squad, at least this is how I see it. It is why I am happy with this transfer, we don't get the prime Thiago Silva, as a matter of fact he's passed it already, but he will bring leadership into a young squad that frankly lacks big characters.
  13. No disrespect to Azpilicueta he is a big influence at the club, but he is no captain material if you ask me, Thiago Silva should be given the armband the second he steps a foot at Cobham and he should definitely be the loudest on the pitch, genuine WC defender hopefully his presence will have a similar impact to Van Dijk's arrival at Liverpool. Granted they have better defenders, but still T. Silva's presence alone should be of massive importance.
  14. Fast forward 3-4 weeks from now Messi has got himself a bumper new deal, some fucker he did not like is thrown out of the club and the muppet show is over. If there is one player in this world that has such a huge organisation at his feet, that is Lionel Messi, he simply runs that club inside, out.
  15. Chelsea have leaked goals left and right all season long and at this point any defender that comes in and any CB partnership other than the ones we've already seen is a massive improvement. If you ask me Zouma and Christensen are Everton/West Ham material and Rudiger is a complete buffoon, a total clown with probably one of the lowest footballing IQs of all players, simply cannot be trusted. Tomori not ready yet. Hence Thiago Silva is a must. Even Smalling would improve Chelsea's defence at this moment, this is how bad the CBs are, awful, really awful. Or at least this is how I see it.
  16. And it's Olivier Giroooud!!! Come on Chels!
  17. Nothing against Chilwell, I actually think he is a decent full back, but nowhere even close to the rumoured amounts. If Leicester still ask for silly (and absurd) money then move on to cheaper and maybe better targets. Anything over 45M for Chilwell is already too much.
  18. Bit nervous to be fair, but at the same time I am confident we'll get the job done. Wish Leicester dumps Manure out of CL football, deluded Mancs would go from hero to zero in the span of just a couple of weeks, from the next dominant force in European football, led by that overrated diver Bruno Fernandez, to Europa League. Don't think it is going to happen though, Leicester seem to have ran out of steam and have no support in the stands, but it would be fun.
  19. He is on £185K p/w, net. https://www.elconfidencial.com/deportes/futbol/2019-04-17/jan-oblak-renovacion-atletico-simeone-sueldo-madrid_1950262/
  20. Anyone who wins the league with our current defence should be given Prince Charles' place in the line of succession.
  21. Pulisic, Havertz, Hakim Z, Werner that is one hell of a forward line it has got everything you wish for pace, trickery, creativity, goals and apart from Hakim Z. none is even close to his peak. But that GK and defenders though... If it was me in charge I'd splash the Chilwell cash on his partner - Soyuncu - and then buy Telles or Tagliafico for the left full back spot.
  22. He looks at his best and this is definitely the type of sign me up type of form, but I don't know, I feel Chelsea have been in this position already for some times and not only Chelsea, but every club. Player hits superb form, player signs an extension and goes back to his old form and you are left with an ageing player on big money. Good servant but should not be kept past this season IMHO. Benrahma seems the obvious replacement.
  23. He is a 90M player but actually nobody should pay that for him just because of the current economic climate and the fact that Leverkusen just missed on CL football next season. Plus Kai Havertz's contract situation and the rumoured transfer request. Leverkusen are in no position to hold on for that much money. Maybe with CL football they'd have been entitled to, but not now and if they do it then good luck I guess, they'll lose him for half of that next summer. Or even worse, for free to Bayern the summer of 2022.
