  1. Multiple news outlets reporting we are considering a bid for Ronaldo, which would see Eden going in the other direction. Now... That would be a cold decision from conte if he wanted that. I wouldn't be happy!
  2. Not a rumour, as I am not aware we are interested in anyway, but what are peoples thoughts on Gael Clichy as a back up/rotational LWB with Alonso. 1) Free 2) Home Grown 3) experienced league winner.
  3. A lot spoke about on here about this scenario effecting value - But Lukaku came out last week and confirmed he would be leaving Everton. That hasn't effected his estimated value or asking price. So I don't agree that it necessarily follows that his value is lower than it was 10 days ago for example. Whilst we don't know what has happened here, personally I can see 2 fairly realistic scenarios. Scenario 1: China came calling in January, Chelsea FC got excited at the potential money being thrown around, but told them to wait until the summer. Costa however never had any intention of going to China, and took exception to Chelsea trying to offload him to China. Scenario 2: Costa did initially go to China in January, but Chelsea wanted to wait until the summer. The January strop was because that move was put on hold. Now, come the summer, given changes to China league financial rules, the China offer is no longer on the table - and Costa is scratching around trying to come up with plan B. His recent statements seem to have laid the groundwork for yesterdays announcement and he appears to have been laying the groundwork for a move to athletico. After the FA cup final he said "If the club wants to sell me, they know where I want to go" and " I have a contract and no intention of leaving, but if there are changes to be made that might reduce my chances, if the coach won't count on me anymore or is to give space for another striker, I know that I'll have to leave. But only to where I'm willing to" Then Athletico said they would only pay 20mill - but shock horror, they lost their appear against the transfer ban. Yesterdays announcement by Diego is just an extension of those comments after the cup final. effectively, he laid the ground work saying he would leave if conte did'nt want him, and now he has confirmed conte did'nt want him and will leave, and has said we must sell him for a bargain price. Whatever happened with the China move, and who initiated that, it seems clear he has wanted to leave for a while, especially given what he told Conte when conte first joined. The guy is a good scorer, but is inconsistent, stroppy and unreliable. I also find his persona distasteful, and as i said in a post a couple of weeks ago, his behaviour (pretending to shag the prem league cup , pretending to shag the kit man and f**king about with fire extinguishers during a Conte press conference) is distasteful and a poor reflection on our club. Get rid, but Chelsea need to tread carefully here, as they could end up losing an valuable asset for a relatively low price.
  4. Not sure if this has been said already. But the telegraph are saying that utd are now definitely out of the running and won't be trying to sign griezmann. Instead they are going to only go for a target man. Fingers crossed!
  5. What a load of old nonsense....and this certainly won't be happening next season. Arsenal are not in the champions league remember!
  6. Maybe I will be in the minority here, but I don't really agree with the "great character " comments. His character and general behaviour has been shown in his conduct when waiting for a conte press conference last week (waiting with a fire extinguisher, doing pull ups, then refusing to leave when asked), the way he danced in his pants and pretended to shag anything near him after the title win,despite TV cameras being there (which my 5 yr old was very confused about), and now using the cup as a cock (again in front of loads of kids) annoy me and don't help portray the club in a good light. Comes across as immature in the extreme. Grow up Diego.
  7. double double double, John Terry will win the double. And the sh1t from the lane will win f@&k all again, but John Terry will win the double. Have faith. We are the Chelsea. And spurs are bottlers. Ktbffh
  8. apparently he has an ongoing gallbladder issue that has effected him over a prolonged period.
  9. If everton are asking 100mill for Lukaku , then we need to be asking for double that should we ever decide to move Eden on within the next 2 yrs. Future balon d'or winner.
  10. Cracking game and atmosphere at the bridge. Got a bit quiet for 10mins after saints equalised, but a good sing song was had for the rest of the game, even in the usually quiter east lower family where I was. Made up to get to see JT for one last time in person. 4 wins will do it. Come on you blues.
  11. Looking forward to the game and a big 3v0 win and step towards the title but will take a nervy 1v0! On a personal note - it is my first 1st team game at the bridge in 5 years, and my 5 yr old sons first ever 1st team game (although i did take him to see the u21s last season and a stadium tour). He has been so excited about seeing a full stadium and counting down the sleeps - proud dad :) bring it on! KTBFFH
  12. OK... Amazing goal by Matic, but I thought he was a hindrance to our efforts for the most part. Shows what I know. The experts over at the BBC gave him motm!
  13. Right - dream transfer window - has to include neymar and messi :) Something (only a tiny bit more realistic than a neymar/messi double) based on players we have ben linked with and/or are may be attainable... In: Christensen (free) Sanchez (£35 - £45 mill) Morata (£50 - £60 mill) Lacazette (£25 - 35 mill) Babayoko (£40 - 50 mill) Bertrand Traore (Free) Ricardo Rodriguez (£15 - £25 mill) Oscar De Marcos (£30 - £40 mill) Veratti (£40-£50 mill) Tielemans (with loan back clause) - £25 - £35 mill) Tim Krul - (£4-8 mill) Total Outlay = £264 to 348 mill Out: Costa (£100 - 120 mill to China) Remy (£4-8 mill) Fabregas (£18 - 28 mill) Zouma (£18 - 28 mill) - undecided Willian (£38 - £48 mill) Bergovic (£11-16 mill) Batshuayi (£22 - £32 mill) RLC (Loan - premier league) Ake (£13 - 18 mill) Kenedy (£9 - £14 mil) Wallace (£2-6 mill) Lucas Piazon (£8 - 12 mil) Nathan (£6 - 11 mill) Michael Hector (£5 - 9 mill) Total income = £254 to 350 mill Squad: GK: Tibo, Krul, Eduardo CB: Luiz, Cahill, Azpi, Christensen, Zouma (undecided), One of Kalas/Miazga/Clarke-Salter/Omeruo/Tomori LWB: De Marcos, Moses , Aina RWB: Rodriguez, Alonso, Baba R CM: Kante, Verratti, Babayoko, Chalobah, Van Ginkel AM/RF/LF: Hazard, Sanchez, Pedro, Baker, Pasalic, CF: Morata, Lacazette, Traore First team: Tibo Azpi (c) Luiz Christensen/Cahill De Marcos Rodriguez Kante Verratti Sanchez Hazard Morata Subs: Krul, Babayoko, Happy, Pedro, Alonso, Moses, Lacazette Highly unlikely ...but would be happy with that!
  14. Number 5...Just behind Luiz, Cahill, Dave and happy? What about ake and jt?
  15. Any mathematicians out there? Managed to get tickets for the home game against saints in 25th April. Possible to wrap up the title that day with win?
