Zappacosta, Drinkwater, Rudiger......... We wanted world class signings to build on the GIFT title that Antonio won for us after a season from hell and that is how our board repay him? Remember salivating at the prospect of Alexis Sanchez, Sandro and Griezmann. Even Tolisso and Danilo. This is how our board chooses to repay him? What do they expect him to accomplish this season? All very strange. 

I repeat our target is pl no CL 

 

why we need  elite signings to win the PL ??? 

 

We we won the PL with the fucking. Moses 

WTF

Tolisso or Sandro would have made our window positive for just about every Chelsea fan, I think --Sandro moreso, obviously. 

Llorente to Spurs is the real kicker to round out a poor window from the Chelsea staff.

Whats up with your giant font?

It's just laughable how some posters are now happily stating we had a "solid" market. Just like we had in 2015/16? We never learn and we're now happy to settle for mediocrity. Good luck ever aspiring to be even close to the level of the likes of Madrid, Bayern and Barcelona. As it stands, we're just another overrated English team. Anyway goodnight everyone. 

Mate, I'm as disappointed as anyone but this summer has been orders of magnitude better than that infamous window. Every players we've bought this summer will actually fucking play for us for a start. Rüdiger, Morata, and Bakayoko will be stars for us I think. Zappa and Drinkwater will be solid I hope and Christensen will develop nicely.

Not a total disaster but not the homerun we had hoped for. Luckily, neither Manchester club made a massive move today so the gap isn't quite as huge as I feared it could've gotten.

Renato Sanches, Bonucci. It's laughable when you actually start to think of the many failures. All these names are better than what we've got and would have brought some excitement

I'm happy with the signings we made. Rudiger and Christensen (if you'd include him) strengthen our defence and I believe one will edge Cahill out as first choice during the season.

Bakayoko and Morata I think will prove to be younger and intelligent buys to replace Matic and Costa.

Caballero is a solid replacement for Begovic and experienced backup.

Zappacosta I don't know much about but will trust the Italian journalists that rate him and think he'll do well under Conte.

Drinkwater, assuming it goes through, in my opinion is a solid option for centre midfield. Premier league experience, played with Kante in a 2 man midfield setup, will do a solid job when called upon I believe.

I'm a little concerned with the depth in certain positions. Striker in particular because we don't know if Morata will struggle at some stage playing so many games for us during the season, especially how intense our league is and I'm really not sold on Batshuayi. That's why, for a fairly small fee, I'm surprised we didn't go in properly for Llorente who would have helped shore that position up. 

I feel we could have kept a couple of the younger players we've shipped out on loan just to beef up the squad. We have to assume we will usually have at least a couple of players unavailable for games when playing 2 or 3 times a week and our bench at the start of this season showed obvious depth issues. Boga for example, surely should have been kept. We have effectively got 5 senior players for 3 positions.

It's a risky game. However if we have a run like last year keeping key players fit throughout the season we'll go close again because we are very well balanced and in my opinion still better equipped than Spurs, Liverpool and Arsenal.

Diego Costa and Remy likely to depart tomorrow, leaving us with Morata and Batshuayi to compete in four completions. 50+ games... two strikers...

Lol that's right..Remy is still here

Not me. Count care less about Sandro.

alonso has been one of our top performers and it would have been criminal to remove him from the starting XI at this time.

striker, rwb (Moses has been inconsistent),  and attacking mid.

we have one striker. Make no mistake. Bats is a bet at this time.

I'd rate this window 8/10 if u take into account how little our rivals did. It was pretty embarrassing at times but it's been good. Conte should be satisfied or he needs to go manage PSG or City. Actually fear he might go to PSG next year.

Oh God...Bats as our backup striker for 50+ matches...WTF man...

I dont know why that would upset you. I like his spirit, he just needs help with consistency and not being in over his head at times.

I hope he shines and proves everyone here wrong.

The really bad thing about the transfer market is that COsta is still with us and not training with us.

Mate, I think the problem is the fact that should alonso get hurt, there is no backup for him.

Don't fool yourself, Kenedy has no place in LWB

Our success is built on the rotating manager door strategy. The legacy thing would be nice, but if he goes I'm not bothered

So what if they can be starters?! That's not the point. The point is several of our Champions League rivals (and I use the word rivals very loosely) have players on their bench better than half our prospective starting XI. Now that's just embarrassing.

What's our ambitition? If it's to scrape top 4 and bow out in the last 16 of the CL then okay, but our insane board expect Conte to retain the fucking title and compete seriously in the CL and if he doesn't, Roman starts visiting training and pressurizing the manager with the sack. That's my whole issue with this shite 2017 transfer market of ours.

I've seen enough of Bats. He is not ready to be our main backup striker for the whole season including CL and the lot. I am sorry.
