    Antonio Conte - Now Officially Manager

    Agree. Not a strategy I like but a strategy nonetheless.

    Tiémoué Bakayoko

    Come on, cut him some slack! Morata and Bakayoko are players with great potwntial for the future. I can't believe so many are beginning to question Morata. He is basically a superb footballer with finishing issues. He will come good.

    Jose Mourinho thread

    Well... This isn't sudden you know there's a reason some of us haven't been able to stand him for a while!
  4. I do't disagree that Oscar was playing really well then but I am amazed that some of you still make statements like this "him displacing our PotY is actually proof of how good he was playing". This is a ridiculously simplistic statement. Based on what we know of Jose, him choosing a player nowadays is hardly testament to how objectively good he is playing. Or is Fellaini a better player than Mata, Mikhtaryan or Martial? The other point here is that every decision cannot be made only on its short term merit. That is what Jose was guilty of, and that is why we lost out on a player with great potential. These things happen, and I dont regret anything here. I just think it is a bit deluded to believe that no one made a mistake along the way, or that this was the only way it could have been.

    Finally, waited for another Barca draw for too long! Just wish it was at a more advanced stage.
  6. Ah there goes the 13 match streak...
  7. Anyone seen this? https://twitter.com/ffsWijnaIdum/status/935630705584934918?s=17

    Jose Mourinho thread

    Went back and read the first few pages, hilarious :)
  9. See, there's knowing you may have made a mistake in hindsight and there's showing no foresight. And given what we know about Jose now, I will really not be surprised if he actually had a completely arbitrary reason for selling him. Many of us thought he was a special football but perhaps had an attitude issue then. I'm not so sure anymore.
  10. Perhaps, but Jose could hardly have known that then, could he? It was 3 games, and he was 22? He's still young enough to develop that part of his game.
  11. You know at the time, I gave Jose the benefit of the doubt and thought that KDB probably was lacking something. We now know better. We know that Jose is well past it, doesn't care or plan about the long term at all and prefers a Fellaini to someone who can play football. If KDB emerged at Chelsea during the time of any other manager, he probably would have made it with us.

    Alvaro Morata

    Morata all day long for me too. During the first half of each season he was with us, Costa was hardly a flat track bully. He scored 10 of his 59 goals against Arsenal, Liverpool, Spurs, City and United. Also against PSG. That is quite impressive. If, however, you consider only matches in the second half of a season as 'big', then he hasn't done very well. But that has little to do with showing up in the big games, is it?

    Alvaro Morata

    I thought Costa produced in the big games but agree completely otherwise.

    Alvaro Morata

    Agree with the first part :) Morata's play is just pleasing on the eye, very smooth. That's the simple reason I already prefer him over several of our previous strikers including Costa. Even if he isn't as prolific or clinical.
  15. Seconds is a bit unintuitive, but 15 mins doesn't sounds as good does it?
