  1. If they get anything more than £40m for a player with less than 2 seasons left on contract that we sold to them then I lose all faith in our transfer negotiations team. And I don't care what the players cost these days. We can't continue to be shortsighted as a club. We all want to win things but that stance directly contradicts the policy of investing in youth and youth infrastructure which we rate quite highly in on a global scale. Yes they may not be ready but they deserve their chance even if it means a dull season of an utter car crash. It's annoying when we fans are squabbling over players who got an opportunity at the clubs they are which they wouldn't have gotten in our club. Saw a stat about Bakayoko playing less mins than Chalobah up till last season but now we are rumored to be ready to spend big on him to give him a position Chalobah should naturally ascend into. It is soul crushing. For me as a fan and I imagine what it'd be like for the players. No surprise about Solanke's stance. And he will be first of several in the near future among the youth. We've already seen it with squad players like lukaku(the irony), de Bryne, Mata, etc. We are on a long winding road to nowhere. I love optimism but do we really think in the next 3 years Conte will be our manager? Not happening. The management doesn't allow for that. Conte's style and temperament doesn't allow for that. Our policy of the last decade of chopping and changing managers worked but the need for a real footballing policy that allows managers/coaches to come in and succeed needs to be instituted. I'm not saying don't buy expensive players, but not when you have such an expensive and expansive youth set up. Integrate those players with one or at most 2 overpriced top players. But at the end of the day what do I know. I'm just a fan that doesn't get the full picture and isn't in a position to make such calls. Rant over. But I really am sad about the state of things.
  2. Traore not ready for chelsea first team
  3. Lots of comments here about disappointment with the fee. Come on guys, Costa isn't the type of player to go for a world record fee. He is bloody good when he wants to turn it on but for me whilst he can deliver, i can name 5 strikers(excluding gods Messi and Ronaldo) that could get £76m being quoted before he does. He's got too much baggage and for a player to give you 3 years and still double what we paid for him when being sold on i would say we should be laughing. I'm happy for him, he may get criticised by a lot for moving to china and rightfully so but for what he's achieved in the game at his age of 28 he hasn't had any big money moves compared to his contemporaries. Imagine chelsea was his first proper money move as Atletico paid something like slightly over £1m when they got him. I wish him the best wherever he ends up. He will always be one to divide opinion, but he can be very lovable when he wants to.
  4. Thanks man. I always thought the point of building up a points lead was to create a buffer for when things don't go to plan and points are dropped so you still have that wiggle room. Some posts here after the loss seem to be telling me I had a mis-education on that point.
  5. Oh feck right off you moaner again.
  6. Oh feck right off you moaner
  7. Poor tactics from Conte. Needs to give others a chance when Costa is misbehaving. In his attitude and performance. Good performance from Jose and it's his ultimate party pooper move which we have been beneficiary of several times and no surprise there. Seems to have also got the mental edge over Conte at the moment as Conte very subdued in his area. Finally very poor performance from the so called fans on this board. It's disgraceful to read some of the things I'm reading. I remember how draining reading posts can be on here so i blame myself but really people,get your thumbs out ffs.
  8. Yes it's a safety rule and rule of law but the onus is not on the driver legally. Yes maybe as a duty of care but not legally responsible for a passenger not wearing one. Hence modern cars have the beeping noises that persist and get louder to remind the occupants. And that is why the police will fine passenger and not driver. At worst the driver gets a strong verbal warning.
  9. Do you actually check that everyone in your car at all times is wearing a seat belt? Especially as the law puts the onus on the passenger not driver. If I get pulled up by the cops and a passenger isn't clicked,he/she gets fined not me. I'm not advocating being nonchalant but it's not very practical and possible to check every one is wearing a belt always.
  10. Exactly. Even in this country and league Brenda used it a lot and several teams last season used it randomly. Yeh we may be more associated with it as our main formation but to say trend started with Conte and brought into style by him......well l'll just leave it at have some salt handy people.
  11. Never liked statements like this. What makes it our 3-4-3? I believe the manager was also a member of a back 3 in a 3-4-3 formation back in his playing days. Formations evolve, go through active and dormant stages but to say "our 3-4-3" is a bit of a stretch. How about he's just trying a formation out, maybe one he has played in as well before?
  12. He himself said back in the days when Lamps jailed city there was no more romance so will be a two-faced geezer for his behaviour now I'd say. I loved him to bits and respect what he achieved with us but let's get things straight there is always an opposing minority in every situation even in a family of four. That some fans boo or sing about him doesn't even annoy me because HE started the slinging first. Stay in your lane boss. You did good with us in the past and I get you're bitter cos we sacked you and sacked you again but you pouring scorn on us or our new manager now will get you nowhere fast boss. Wish Conte took your head off yesterday. You think because he has been chilled the whole season at Chelsea that's what he is about?You better ask somebody.....
  13. Normal people are involved in this daily. We just don't hear it cos they are normal people. Plus 80% of the football population are below 28 i will estimate. Not really mature people especially given the fact they have been exposed to the fast life at a tender age.
  14. Oh certainly disappointing. I was a huge fan and defender of the man even when I knew he was in the wrong and just being a D head. Right now I'm like....meh....whatever loser. Loser in this regard being his petulance and overall general behaviour of course. Serial winner. Scary like someone said earlier if Man Utd became our main challenger/competition. I saw a stay earlier that they are on their longest unbeaten run since Fergie.
  15. He got sacked by us. Twice. His behaviour is unexpected but not surprising.
