I like how you're starting to believe in Jasper :) But you gotta stop calling him Cillesson, for God sake he AIN'T Swedish lol

Alonso - Cillessen swap makes too much sense so it definitely won't happen I'm afraid. I've been rooting for him for months and months already and I'm certain he's the best keeper we've produced since van der Sar. Absolute top class on the ball and very good reaction saver

THIS is deffo Dutch!!

 

even though sung in English

:D

He hasn't even kicked a ball yet for us and you guys are moaning.  Just remember who we currently have at RB. Moving Azpi over there alone would be a huge upgrade and if Alonso can become a consis

Hell of a struggle for him yesterday and he was clearly being targeted. An upgrade is a must and I think Conte knows by now. That's not to say Alonso won't be a useful squad player for a few year

Underrated. Mostly by Chelsea fans...

What is worse about Emerson? He at least has tangible qualities unlike Alonso who is good at free kicks and that’s about it. Emerson has pace to overlap, can dribble, attempts to pass and move and can create chances. Same number of assists in 5 appearances for us that Alonso managed in a whole league season. Even this pre season, in less minutes can point to two clear cut chances Emerson has made (Pedro in first game and Abraham in second). 

I’m not completely sold on Emerson, he seems either low on confidence or just lacking extra bit of quality to be a top LB. But he damn well deserves a chance as it’s clear he has some strengths where Alonso lacks and if Marcos Alonso has managed to be be given a competitionless 2 seasons as our starting LB Emerson at least deserves a run of game.

 

In summary, Emerson hasn’t set pre season alight per se but he at least has shown some of his strengths. Alonso every appearance for Chelsea FC doesn’t set anything alight. Annoys me when people call out Emerson having an average game as to why Alonso should start when Alonso is average at best for 60% of his games, not really contributing anything meaningful to attack or defence (the rest are worse than average).

How is he gonna set preseason alight when Sarri keeps playing piss poor Alonso over him...

He isn't even an LB. More of a left-midfielder than a fullback. 

Defence worries me, man. Chels lack true quality in the centre of defence (Christensen>Rudiger for me but even Chris is still a developing CB) and left-back is real worry for me. Was hoping Emerson would come good but that doesn't seem to be the case (at least not yet). That left flank could be exposed.

Think Sarri would be wise to deploy Azpi on the left. But I don't like Zappacosta at RB. Moses should be ahead of Zappacosta in the pecking order imo. Think he would make a decent RB.

REAL WANT ALONSO

Real Madrid are set to target Chelsea defender Marcos Alonso, according to Don Balon. 

New manager Julen Lopetegui is said to want the Spain international at the Bernabeu and has asked the club to make a move.

Interesting, what a shame our window is closing early.

Yeah if Real come calling do the deal. Get a decent left back. Alonso is a decent left wing back yeah but different playing in a back 4.

No chance to let me have Telles then?

Haha Telles would probably be Madrid bound if Alonso doesn’t go. Been a lot of rumours about it because Lopetgui or whatever worked with him when he was at Porto IIRC. Would be a upgrade over Alonso in a back 4 defos but he’s still a bit suspect defensively. He’s much much more like Marcelo than Filipe Luis.

Bertrand/Telles on deadline would be great but its never happening. 

Seems LB and striker will be priorities next windows unless Morata and Emerson step up big time.
