  1. I agree mate! Unreal, very few in the world that can flick a ball on like that. *EDIT* with their head..
  2. Agreed. Surely the board have/had a 2nd option... regardless, we're a week out from the start of the season and we look flat and a have lack of depth in the squad. Very worrying
  3. Hopefully the f**king board finally wake the f**k up and bid 100m for Sandro
  4. Alex Sandro

    Dybalatti, Higuaino, Sandrotti, Douglas Costalano, Pjanicenni?
  5. Are anyone worried about the squad size?

    I agree 100% with this! Whilst we have made some good signings we haven't really addressed our "problem areas". Looking at the window so far, we have signed: Big Willy - Good signing to replace Bego, great 2nd choice goalkeeper brought in on a free. Rudiger - Not a bad signing, I agree with didier that it feels a little pointless considering the cover we already have/had but he does look good so far. Bakayoko - A signing we needed to make with Matic on his way out, haven't watched enough Ligue 1 to comment on his ability and I can't base a player on YouTube highlights. With Chalo going to Watford we seem to have gone a little backwards (transfer market wise) and we our now looking to add another player here... Morata - Great signing imo and replacing a very good striker in Costa. Despite his poor attitude, recent events etc. you can't deny his ability. He's done with Chelsea (evidently awhile ago) and it seems Conte is done with him. Morata is still young and hasn't really been given the opportunity to be a club's leading forward. Conte has put his faith in him and hopefully that will pay dividends this season. As dider mentioned above and imo our first 2 major signings should have been a LWB and a RWB. Alonso suprised me this season and I think that can be said for a lot of Chelsea fans. I think he's very good going forward and isn't as bad definitively as some ppl claim he is albeit he's not the best and he does get caught out for his lack of pace at times. Sandro would have been an amazing signing and whilst it's harsh on Alonso he would have been in the starting line-up without a doubt, second best LB in the world behind Marcelo imo. Moses looked a different beast after we changed to a back 3 and it seemed Conte got the best out of him as a RM turned RWB. Looked good going forward and equally adept tracking back defensively. Whether it was the amount of games Moses played that took their toll or what but on the back end of the season he started to look a little suspect and his decision making in the back line is a little worrying at times, something I feel he can improve on this season hopefully. Other than Sandro at LWB we haven't really been in for any RWB's that I can think of?... With what's left of the window our main focus will hopefully be on both these 2 areas. No chance of signing Sandro unfortunately so hopefully Conte and the board have a back up in mind!
  6. Danilo

    He won't start ahead of Mendy or Walker imo...
  7. Tiémoué Bakayoko

    Bit worried about that midfield depth... we have Baka coming in but with Matic going out as it stands we have Kante, Baka, Fabregas and... Baker? Correct me if I'm wrong. With Champions League on top of EPL, FA Cup + the mickey mouse cup we're looking a pretty thin squad especially in the middle of the pitch, as much as Matic frustrated me at times last season would it not be worth hanging on to him as a squad player? I still feel he can to a job (imo) unless we're in for someone to replace an outgoing Matic? Interested to hear your thoughts @DonAntonio
  8. Danilo

    Agree with this... if we can somehow pick up Bakayoko, Sandro and Morata it will be (imo) a very, very good window. Maybe picking up Danilo will entice Sandro to sign even more with us seeing as they were besties back at Porto...
  9. Alvaro Morata

    Apologies if this has already been posted...
  10. Antonio Rudiger

    Impeccable timing, abramovich
  11. Antonio Rudiger

    Righto, bloke's been in "London for a medical" for about a year now
  12. Ruben Neves

    Annnnnnnnnnd he's gone https://www.google.com.au/amp/www.goal.com/en-au/amp/news/4019/transfer-zone/2017/07/08/36919962/ruben-neves-makes-16m-move-to-wolves
  13. Alex Sandro

    Although! Ignoring the fact that his jacket has the Juve badge on it, it IS BLUE...
  14. That bench though...
  15. I could be wrong and someone will have to confirm but I believe it was the Chels supporters who got tix in the WBA home end. TO be fair, I'd struggle to contain myself watching my team score the EPL winning goal in the dying minutes too haha
