    Higuain

    What's wrong with our fullbacks? Azpi will play RB and he's an absolute star. Zapa will back up to him, which probably won't be that often. On the left Alonso hasn't put a foot wrong since he joined us and Emerson is only 23. Full back is the least of our worries at this point.

    Leon Bailey

    9 in 38 games at 20 years of age isn't that bad for a winger. Are you expecting Messi type numbers from him or something?

    Leon Bailey

    Hopefully Willian's replacement and not Hazard's...

    Jorginho

    It was both. Though he was on loan at Sunderland, so he wasn't technically their player.

    Higuain

    If we did give Giroud 1.5 I'd imagine that was only because we got him mid season.

    Higuain

    If this was Higuain of 5 or so years ago then I'd be all over this. We've proved in the past that going for these types of strikers (ones that are past it like Eto'o, Falcao, Pato and even Torres and Shechenko) doesn't work out so well for us. They might pop up for an important goal here and there, but for the most part they didn't live up to expectations or were never long term prospects. I honestly think we should give Morata another chance. He does have some talent, and if Sarri can tap into that he could start banging in the goals on a regular basis. He's still young enough that we can build our attack around him. If Hazard stays and we can upgrade our right side it's only going to benefit Morata. The only reason to get Higuain in would be to play back up to Morata and help him develop even more, but we already have a player like that in Giroud. Our strike force (Morata, Giroud, Bats) isn't actually that bad.

    Jorginho

    Note that I said if he is. I never claimed to be an expert on him as I don't watch much Italian football. But if he is as world class as a lot of people are saying then the money we spent is what you have to pay for a quality player these days.

    Jorginho

    You can't really compare prices of players who play in different positions. If Jorginho is one of , if not the best deep lying playmaker in the world at the moment then of course we're going to have to pay top dollar for him. He and Hazard may play in different positions, but it doesn't mean that either one isn't worth the big bucks. It may seem like a lot of money for a midfielder, but if he's world class then it's the going rate. We knew this and that's why we got the wallet out.

    Jorginho

    He's actually 26 and will be 27 in December. That aside, he's still a class signing!

    Jorginho

    Yeah right same thing mate, good comparison As good as Ronaldo is, he's still 33. He's not going to get any better at this stage and you'll probably get two good seasons out of him before he starts to really slow down.

    Rugani

    But he's rated 87. :(
  12. I think you guys aren't giving him the credit he deserves. Yeah, Madrid and Barca are massive teams that most top end players would love to play for, but he genuinely loves Chelsea and he won't walk away easily.

    Kante

    I'd also argue Kante is the most important out of those three, just like Makelele was probably more important to us than the likes of Cech, Lamps and Terry were during that period.

    Higuain

    That Wigan goal was amazing. Every now and then I go back and watch it and get goosebumps every time.

    Jorginho

    Way to dampen everyone's good mood. :(
