  1. Win today and at least for a few hours we go second. lets do this. Liking the team selection, think I'd have chosen Rudiger though, i do like him
  2. Do not understand why people think a loss today is conte's nail in the coffin and he will be sacked. No chance
  3. Antonio Conte - Now Officially Manager

    I had not heard the rumours about players disliking training methods until today, that never bodes well. That is one of the first signs they are turning. Lets hope it is BS papers tonight trying to make a story that Conte would not confirm the board were backing him, i think thats tosh. Plus, it matters little, we issued a press release backing Jose to then go and sack him. However, i would be very careful having a strop with Roman, itll only end one way. He must stop complaining about lack of players and having indirect digs at the board for lack of spending. Much as i agree with him
  4. Antonio Conte - Now Officially Manager

    The other issue is every year we win the league we never strengthen enough. We always let go players who ideally should have been kept to accomodate the new signings. Every. Single. Year. Its like the board think, "f**k bringing anyone in, these lot won it last year theyll do it again, i dont care if Utd and city have brought in world class players for £300m" I am not being kneejerk here and its slightly off topic for the thread but i absolutely think Marina has to be replaced by a football person. and our board need a shake up, because we are pissing off many a good manager with our stubborn attitude
  5. Antonio Conte - Now Officially Manager

    Love him. Hope he stays for years. But the constant subtle digs at the board about squad depth is not going to end well. He is a pissed off man, who i suspect is debating his long term future. And i have no doubt he is fuming we sold Matic to the Mancs, but he needs to quit the whinging now. Lose to Watford Saturday and i will be surprised if he is here xmas time
  6. For sheer bias, or fickleness you wont beat a man city fan. In a league of their own.
  7. Alvaro Morata

    Morata is going to be f**king fantastic. End of. Quite pleased we have him instead of Lukaku, although would have taken either at the time
  8. Was very harsh on Claudio that. Had he not lost his job he would have won the league following year, hands down
  9. Danny Drinkwater

    I thought he was going to be immense Deschamps. Sad he left after 1 year
  10. Danny Drinkwater

    Is going to be a solid signing IMO. Adding good depth and capability to the squad
  11. Barkley

    I predict we still sign him but in Jan. I dont think he had a medical, (and if he did there is no way he changed his mind, he f**king failed it) but i do think he agreed personal terms which tells me he wanted to come here, or was at least interested in doing so Part of me thinks the decision to come back to it in Jan, or wait until then; whatever it was, was mutual between us and Ross. As it means we get him for 20m at most, and hes fit and ready from the off. Spurs did not make a single call to Everton all summer the papers are saying now, not even attempting to sign him, so i dont buy the story he waited to see if Spurs bid. BBC have a source saying he didnt change his mind after a medical, he simply wants to join his new club when fully fit.
  12. Diego "the guv'nor" Costa

    Covering our backs, if we refused to register him and continued to fine; id imagine there is some muddy legal issue. Bordering constructive dismissal. It would take some serious backpedalling and apologising publicly to get him back in the team. I wouldnt be dead set against it, but last few weeks, despite loving the guy, ive wanted him gone Makes me wonder, did Atletico really want him back?
  13. Zappacosta

    excited to watch him. His stats were second only to Alex Sandro i seen. Dont think he will be starting anytime soon, but if he is as good as Moses with better crossing ability, get him in!
  14. Deadline Day Drama

    The sun are not the best which is why I didnt get my hopes up.
  15. Deadline Day Drama

    i know its only the sun, but they reckon we are signing him,45m https://www.thesun.co.uk/sport/football/4360643/riyad-mahrez-chelsea-45m-leicester/
