  1. Alvaro Morata

    Thanks for the extra information. I dodn't realise he was still 16. I agree we probably won't risk him in the league this season. He might make the bench for a domestic cup game if we are still short up front. He already has 2 goals in the checkatrade trophy
  2. Michy Batshuayi to Chelsea

    Ake came back during the January window last season. He went to Bournemouth on a half season loan and they wanted to keep him for the rest of the season. However we decided not to extend the loan. So there was no cancellation in this case.
  3. Michy Batshuayi to Chelsea

    I can see the logic of playing a false 9 in a tricky match like Roma away if Morata is still unavailable. But Bats should be starting the next 3 Premier League games in his absence.
  4. Alvaro Morata

    I doubt it. We may have a clause in the loan deal but it is unlikely for a season long loan. If anything I can see us promoting Callum Hudson-Odoi to the bench. He is highly rated but young. Funnily enough he is included in the Guardian's latest list of young players to look out for in the Premier League: https://www.theguardian.com/football/ng-interactive/2017/oct/03/next-generation-2017-20-of-the-best-talents-at-premier-league-clubs
  5. I agree. That seems most likely. Especially with 3 big games coming up in the 10 days following this one.
  6. Back in the day Chelsea v. Forest produced some cracking matches. Forest are a shadow of their former selves but it is nice to be hosting them at the bridge again tomorrow. Hopefully a decent game and we can make it into the next round while resting a few first teamers. Hoping to see a few younger players get a chance too. Ampadu is a decent shout for the bench. Talking of youngsters I think Michael Mancienne plays for Forest now. I remember him being rated as a youth prospect here once.
  7. Alvaro Morata

    How about "He came from sunny Spain. He'll score more goals than Kane!"
  8. Fernando Llorente

    Supposedly this is not a done deal yet and we may still try to hijack the move. We shall see
  9. Zappacosta

    I have to say this looks like a decent deal. 25 years old so meets the club's age criteria. I am happier with getting him than somebody like Rafinha
  10. Zappacosta

    His stats are decent and he has recently broken into the Italian national team. Is he right sided or left sided full back?
  11. Random Rumours

    We should put a bid in for Lemar if he is available. Let Liverpool have the Ox and get their first choice instead
  12. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain

    Do we know if Liverpool are willing to meet Arsenal's price for the Ox? They haven't bid on him and seem to be more interested in Van Dyk and Lemar. I reckon at this point Ox may end up seeing his contract out at Arsenal and walking for nothing next summer
  13. Virgil Van Dijk

    Lol. That was my thought too. Unless he was spotted having dinner with Conte and Emenalo I don't think it is even worth printing.
  14. Alex Sandro

    We don't know for sure that the club even bid on most of the players. In most cases the only source is press speculation. We certainly may have inquired about all the above but who knows if we lodged a bid and what the amount was. For example Sky Italia claim we have only bud about 37m for Sandro so far which is way off the other stories.
  15. 2 weeks left in the window

    It was poor squad management to let so many midfielders leave this summer when our only new signing in that position was known to be out injured until at least September. With that in mind we could have asked Matic to stay until the end of the window or even held off on loaning Baker until the last minute. As it is we left no room for suspensions or further injuries and that is exactly what happened. Hopefully we can still pick up a decent signing or 2 before the end of the window but another Papy looks equally possible at this point.
