1. We are not going to Anfield again this season bar a CL draw.

2. Even if we were, we haven't lost there since 2012.

As for there defense being a shambles, that has been the case for years so surely if they were as ambitious as you are trying to make out, they would have sorted it by now?

1. Oh okay. I'll edit that with Stamford Bridge. Like that'll make things better am I right? :lol: 

2. Alright. But most of Anfield encounters were draws. With a shambolic defense of Liverpool's, I'm shocked we only beaten them once in Anfield since 2012.

3. They are looking it to it now, starting with VVD.

Championship? I thought we have been relegated to the conference while Liverpool, Arsenal and United have all sealed the quadruple.

Lol I think people as always overexaggerate, we will bounce back, but honestly everyone can see we have been doing quite poor over past few transfer windows. Yes we won title last year, but the shape of our team right now is quite bad. We paid around 200m this season and there is very little improvement. 

Bakayoko, Morata and others will have to step up big big time if you ask me. 

Plus if we lose Hazard I honestly believe we are done for two seasons at least. Even with all the money we would get, board is simply not capable of bringing top quality players. Be it lack of money or simply shit scouting/poor attraction, we sold Matic,  bought Baka and Drinkwater for 80m. Says pretty much all. And since Oscar sale for 70m, we still didnt manage to bring quality attacking midfielder/winger to the squad.

As for others, City is clearly doing big steps, we are lucky United has Mou still but they will have more and more quality. Liverpool just lost Coutinho, but held their own against City and IMO while they are not yet title material, especialy under Klopp, they have best balanced squad in years. 

They are all making small steps forward, we go backwards.

We play boring/proactive football for ages now, with some sparks of realy great runs between, but generaly still very proactive against top teams. However difference was we came on top in the end against 80% of epl opponents. If there was cup game or decisive match against Spuds, Arsenal, even City, we just won the game in the end usualy. Now our football isnt ANY better, could say we play worse than last season, but now we dont even win the likes of Arsenal. Its clear we lost that edge that made us a team in past years known for playing defensive, but we could kill them if they gave us some space. Take Eden out of this team and we are dead in attack. Our transfers have been awful recently, and while we havent spend half as city, we could have got some better players in our team by now.

Lets see how that goes, they still have to provide him with a decent partner, get in a quality full back and atleast a PL standard of keeper, and it won't come cheap.

Great signing. How many of the top six have better backup strikers than Giroud?

City, United...

Arsenal is on level with us not worse...

But the rest? Yeah you have a point.

You are wrong again. We beat them in April 2014 0-2 (Gerrard slip game) and later in November 1-2 (Cahill, Costa).

You started support Chelsea in 2018? Don't remember results from 4 years ago, don't remember where we played this season 2 months ago...

Thing is. Giroud is not going to put the pressure on Morata the way Dzeko would.

 

Dzeko is good enough to not only challenge for the starting spot, but might even expect it. Giroud is clearly backup. He doesnt push us forward in that regard.

So 2/7 since 2012. While it's the same for Liverpool since 2012, beating us at our turf twice. Are we that evenly matched?

Haha, okay I've clearly started supporting Chelsea since 2018.

I was upset about us getting Dzeko, but after we turned our heads to Giroud, feck it. I'll take Dzeko over Giroud.

Okay, what in the fuck is this!?

First of, why the fuck would we be after Llorente again when he's been abysmal for Spuds? Secondly, why would we even entertain the idea of sending Batshuayi to Spuds!? Lastly, Giroud clearly isn't as close to joining us as was reported.

Clearly a lot more twists and turns before the deadline. My money is still on Bats staying and us signing no other forwards.

So, Di Marzio was talking rubbish with that 15m deal. :lol:  This might still happen then...

Who available would challenge for starting spot and push us forward?

Be surprised if this happens.. Even more so with whats come out. Problem is the fees are bound to be high and plus they seemed willing to pay 30/20 for Carroll who was injured!! Know you have to add wages and that that in top but still

Don't get why we keep targeting 30+ strikers. The club are clearly looking for any excuse not to spend on an older striker. Even if we set a "deadline" if Arsenal came back and accepted the offer, why would we then pull out? We've signed no one else

Also, the club only offer one year contracts to players over 30 (with very little flexibility on this) - which our targets will never accept (why would they if they have a a longer contract elsewhere?).
