    Welcome N’Golo Kante

    I'm sure I saw Putin whispering in Kante's ear on the podium to tell him to stay at Chelsea :-)

    Crespo is on the list of best strikers we have ever had. Certainly the best I have ever seen pull on a blue shirt .. absolutely outstanding movement and finishing. Makes Drogba look like Luther Blissett (and I loved Drogba ! :-) )

    A Sarri-ball Quadruple ? Why not LOL ... it's time to be positive !

    If true, poor old Ross Barkley has lost his shirt already LOL

    Antonio Conte - Now Officially Manager

    Always thought it was a bit odd when he first turned up, and didn't bring in any players he'd ever coached before ... a clue there that his style, and the climate his management creates, isn't perhaps one that people particularly want to be around. Onwards and upwards anyway. Thanks Conte for the trophies, especially that one season of near perfection on and off the field, and welcome Sarri, assuming it is him we have been waiting for and not Gareth Southgate :-)

    Ruben Loftus-Cheek

    Thought Luca Modric was fantastic. Really wish we'd been able to sign him a few years ago .. and even at age 32 he'd still be worth a punt. Also thought Perisic was excellent for them - a real threat from the wing. You can see why Man U were linked with him last year.

    Ruben Loftus-Cheek

    He had to change things at Wing back, as on neither flank were they able to press forward, and we became a 5-3-2 rather than a 3-5-2 and were getting over-run in midfield. hence Danny Rose was first sub. I agree though that Southgate needed to try and change something else as well. We had very little offensive threat, Kane too deep, Sterling his usual frustrating promise, and Ali and Lingard offering very little ...

    Swap Willian for Pogba ?

    Van Ginkel to Chelsea

    OMG - poor Marco ! Some people are just not built for top level sport unfortunately ...

    Willian proving yet again today why we should try and get a deal done with Man United ASAP.

    Well played Roman ... we can't be selling to a Manchester United fan ... :)

    Conte to Real Madrid is never going to happen ... they wouldn't hire a defensive coach who wants total control of transfers, and why would he go to a place where the previous guy won 3 CLs in a row ? He'd be on a hiding to nothing ...

    Yes. He was PSG manager in the 3 consecutive seasons we got drawn against them in the knock out stages ... lost QF on away goals in 2013/14 season (3-1, 0-2) , and then went though in the next two ... 2014/15 R16 on away goals (1-1, 2-2) ; 2015/16 R16 4-2 on aggregate (2-1, 2-1). So Won 3 Drawn 2 Lost 1 in the 6 games he managed PSG against us.

    Antonio Conte - Now Officially Manager

    You need to look at minutes played, or "per 90" games to get a proper view of what was going on. We pretty much only ever had one striker on the pitch, and frequently none when Conte favoured the false 9. Diego Costa pretty much played every minute of each of his 35 games, so our "striker" managed 15 vs his 20, which is not that different taking into account the disruption and potential confidence hit of the chopping & changing , added to which we certainly played a much more defensive game last season vs the title winning season for sure. Here is the compare on Squawka : If Morata genuinely had a back injury, then that would definitely have affected his performance, as any back sufferer will attest ... even when it is better you mentally "protect" it ... Water under the bridge anyway :)

    I'm not impressed with Sarri's motivation to manage us at all ... I mean, why hasn't he bought HIMSELF out of his Napoli contract ? :-) 8 million Euros to offset against his 3 year contract at £6M a year ... not exactly going to starve is he LOL

    High time we had some wingers in the Duff/Robben mould again ...

    Alvaro Morata

    I think if Conte had played Batshuayi instead, we'd have had a 25+ goal striker last season ... granted the link up play would have been worse, but Bats knows how to do the important striker bits i.e. put the ball in the net :) Morata doesn't seem to have a striker's instinct with the ball at his feet.

    Could be a simple ABC ... Anyone But Conte ... ? :-)

    2018/19 squad

    Here's a potential 4-3-3 XI with a back up XI that doesn't involve spending any money at all ... promoting some of the loan army and youth players ... Fabregas, Drinkwater, Bakayoko, Pedro, Willian, Zappacosta, Eduardo, Zouma, Kenedy all on the "For sale" list, along with Baker, Palmer, Kalas, Omeruo, Hector, Miazga, Dabo, Colkett, Scott, Boga, Brown, Feruz, Piazon, Tomori, Wakefield, Kane, Rahman, Delac, Baxter, Collins and Beaney. I thought about suggesting to buy a new winger (Zaha, Bailey), but I really would like to see Hudson-Odoi and Mount get a chance, hence resisted ! Van Ginkel and Pasalic are good all round midfielders with decent technique, goal-scoring and a bit of physical presence (both 6'2"+ ). I'd like to see what they can do in our engine room. MVG coming off a good season for PSV. Pasalic has played for three decent clubs on loan now, and kept Bayayoko out of the team when he was at Monaco. Looking for an unheralded solid 7/10 contribution every game, like we used to get from Tiago :-) Loftus-Cheek has to play after his performances for Palace ... and Barkley would be the rotation when necessary. Up front, Batshuayi and Giroud will score tons if they get some support from the wings and two box-to-box midfielders behind the striker.
