  1. Ethan Ampadu

    Its pretty appalling and you gotta feel for Exeter. You can't blame either side for trying to get the best deal but the Panel have robbed Exeter of a decent Fee. Hopefully we get them in the FA Cup some time and can repay with tv revenue fees etc.
  2. It will be interesting to see which Conte pushes for .. an attempt at top 4 or a definite final position and a chance for a trophy.. it wouldn't surprise me if we saw Kante, Azpi, Hazard (Willian) rested for the FA Cup...
  3. No chance Alonso is getting away with that... If ref says he didn't see it and with the media attention it got... the Review Panel would have to be all ex-Chelsea and have a free holiday on one of Roman's yachts not to ban him for that. Bit of rotation required I reckon, maybe rest one of Willian & Hazard who look a little Jaded (although both made BBC TOTW) Giroud deservedly starts and maybe being either Barkley or Drinkwater in for Fab. Think Rudiger maybe on naughty step little longer. TC Azpi Christensen Cahill Moses Emerson Kante Drinkwater Pedro Hazard Giroud Bench: WC, Baka, Barkley, Morata, Willian, Chalobah or Hudson Odoi, Zappa
  4. Playing youth players for remaining matches

    Unfortunately your probably right... suppose it depends who comes in? I mean I went on a hunt to see the regularity of youth brought through by the managers It seems we are after. (Enrique, tuchel, Jardim, Allegri and Sarri) Enrique, --> gave 16 youngsters debuts whilst coaching Barcelona. Seems to have preference for youngsters in cup competitions. Tuchel --> brought through the likes of Weigl, Passlack, Dembele and Pulisic. the later two have been very positive about his impact on their careers. Allegri --> has developed a few players such as Rugani and Pjaca but not as many. Jardim --> bringing youngsters through left right and centre. Sarri --> not as many as others but still promotes. Not sure who i'd rather have to be honest.
  5. Playing youth players for remaining matches

    Suppose the one giant benefit of not making the Champions League this season (and to be honest it looks a challenge) is that we can look to use the Europa League as a breeding ground for the young guns. Bring back Abraham, Loftus Cheek, Baker, Jay Da Silva, Zouma, Tomori, Aina etc. and combine with CHO, Sterling, Ampadu and T Chalobah and use it to breed the next gen in a tested environment. Let the main squad focus on the Prem and champions league qualification and then we can start taking it more seriously if we need to.
  6. Leon Bailey

    so lets say we lost Hazard for the £100 -£150 + Bale that's reported, Swapped Bats for Pulisic & took Bailey too (especially as he may qualify/play for England).... I wouldn't be screaming at that. Admittedly losing HAzard would be awful but if he decided he wanted to leave and we had to replace that's not a bad group to bring in.
  7. Andreas Christensen

    The biggest appealing factor for me is like Terry he reads the game fantastically and spots the issue before it arises... works well with Rudiger/Azpi and often keeps Cahill out of trouble
  8. Barkley

    The memories that man created. on a serious note would be brilliant to have someone even as half as talented and successful as Lamps.
  9. Barkley

    BBC Sport and Sky Sports both picked up the Story as an official source now. Usually when both pick it up its fairly clear its a done deal. Happy with this.
  10. Barkley

    In all honestly its fairly clever, we have knocked 20m off his valuation and he's been injured and not played a game. Sensible business by all accounts. My slight query is wouldn't he and Loftus Cheek almost play the same position ? both probably prefer the Central Attacking Midfielder role and with Cesc, Drinkwater, Kante, Baka and potentially Barkley & Loftus Cheek we have a strong midfield.
  11. Andy Carroll - Football has gone mad

    The Style and Type of Striker that Carroll is makes sense, big bloke to hold the ball up and the likes of Willian, Pedro, Hazard etc. Makes sense but not sure anyone would accept Carroll
  12. I would like to see one of Hudson Odoi & Musonda aswell as Ampardu play prominent roles and Sterling and Clarke Salter to be at least on the bench. The likes of Palmer, Scott, Castillo (maybe), Ugbo around but unlikely.... with Ugbo and Palmer I'm not really sure what our plans are for them
  13. Thibaut Courtois

    http://www.skysports.com/football/news/11668/11195158/thibaut-courtois-says-a-new-chelsea-deal-is-close sounds like a real positive step.. I wonder if this means his family may come live in the UK too? Now if Hazard stays then we are in good stead.
  14. Really unsure which was Conte will go with this ... theoretically a 2nd XI Chelsea team should beat Everton but who knows on his decision. I'd say we will see. Willy Rudiger Ampadu Cahill Zappa Drinkwater Baka Kenedy Hudson Odoi Pedro Bats Bench: Eduardo, Sterling, Clarke Salter, Cesc, Willian, Morata, Christiensen (Scott, Palmer, Ugbo, etc. would be fun!) To be honest It could be anything
  15. Alex Sandro

    I'd prefer Bertrand to be honest.... Knows the Prem, not champions league registered and therefore available plus helps English quota and I'd hope fancies showing Stamford Bridge he's got more in him than his outstanding performance against Bayern.
