There's always the chance that Courtois does a WWF-style move in the 90th minute of the second leg. Score is 0-0, extra time is looming, Torres takes a shot from 12 yards which eventually reaches Cour

He nailed that penalty like it was De Bruyne's bird.

When I rewatched the save of the 1v1 I noticed he seems to get low to the ground so quickly, and I mean this in a good way Just watch Scznenzyzne-thingy against Naismith yesterday When he gets in t

Why does it matter how old he is and how many kids he has? What the actual fuck is going on. Basically all I've read is something along the lines of 'Oh he might leave because his kids are in Madrid' and 'why does he have 2 kids aged 25', what do you want the club to do next sign players with no kids, no girlfriends and make them get the snip haha?

It's par for the course for Courtois's Chelsea career that he conceded Messi's first goal ever vs Chelsea - always in the shadow of Cech.

Nothing he could do about the goal, though.

He is such an annoying babbler. Why does he have to talk about Madrid every week.

let him rot in the u18 until his contract runs out when he is not signing that new contract

 

Luckily there are so many good goalies out there, who might not have the same control of the area as courtois but are better on the line. and most importantly are top professionals. Alisson Becker, Jan Oblak, Donnarumma, sergio rico, heck even Butland could do a job and would be good for our homegrown quota. Then are Trapp and Leno. Plus in Bundesliga where traditionally the standard of goalkeeping is highest in all top leagues there are tons of very good non-german goalies like Hradecky and Gulasci. Might even pounce on the one of Neuer and Ullreich who loses out at bayern next season.

The most important reason however if we were to lose Courtois to Real this summer was setting a dangerous precedent. Hazard might follow and maybe other top performers.

As many others have said, there are plenty of fish in the sea, if he decides to leave. After all, Caballero wouldn't be bad first choice either.

Worst thing about his possible departure is Hazard wanting to leave too. "I'll sign if he signs", lol.

Really starting to fuck me off is Courtois, hes had that offer for a while now, if he doesn't sign it soon enough the club should retract it and just sell him. Hes a brilliant goalkeeper but we can't wait forever, it looks even worse having been offered a contract and not signing it until another 2-3 months after receiving it. Fair enough if hes overly keen on a move to Madrid, sign the new deal, make some sort of gentleman's agreement with the club, get us a huge fee in return.... won't happen but. I think he'll end up signing it eventually anyway.

Including Man City, Caballero has around 25 Premier League appearances, with 3 losses.
It's not playing a random goalkeeper - it's playing a guy who was joint-best goalkeeper for a year or 2 in Spain, then came to England and did the business for an all-out-attacking Man City side which had a very vulnerable defence. 

I've not once thought 'Oh shit, Willy won't save that.'

If Thibo decides to leave, we will buy someone, don't worry. But to have let's say Donnaruma and Willy as back up might end up a lot of playing time for Willy, because Donnaruma isn't proven yet. It would be different with Oblak ofc, he is already class GK.

Having Donnaruma and Willy sharing minutes until Italian settles wouldn't be bad. Not perfect like now, but not bad.

Tibo and his father have met PSG officials on Monday night in London for about 2 hours. The story is that he would like to join a club that competes to win CL.
