  1. Emanalo The Problem

    I am convinced that Conte has won the day with Emanalo's "resignation" I feel certain that Antonio has told the Club that either he has full control over all team matters, ins and outs, loans, coaching staff etc or he was going to walk and maybe not even wait for the end of the Season. Luiz may be the catalyst to this happening today. Conte didn't want him and didn't buy him and he has left him out as a physical V sign to those that did. I think that Roman is learning
  2. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain

    I agree that we do need 4 "TOP CLASS" players, but Oxlade Camberlain, Danny Drinkwater, Jamie Vardy, Fernando Llorente,???? REALLY ????
  3. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain

    I have two Arsenal mad Sons in Law, and both are adamant that the Ox is not good enough for Arsenal let alone Chelsea. He is "in and out" good one day, stinking the next. He doesn't want to play right wing back at either Arsenal or Chelsea, he wants to play in centre midfield, but he has proved many times that he is not good enough or strong enough to start there for Arsenal having been given many opportunities. The Arsenal fans have, for a long time, doubted his efforts, commitment and ability to "train on". So Why all of a sudden (because our fans are desperate for a signing, ANY signing) should he be good enough for Chelsea.
  4. Joe Hart

    I will be in the majority but would take Hart over Courtois in a heartbeat. I am fed up with the Belgian's constant references to Spain, Madrid in particular. If he wants to go, Hart would be an excellent replacement. (Especially if he plays like he did for a dire England last night)
  5. David Luiz back at Chelsea

    I hope the cheque is in the post !!!
  6. David Luiz. Yay or Nay?

    So, he makes a few mistakes, don't we all ??? He was immense against us for PSG in the last 2 years so he must have improved as a player. Always liked him and was sad to see him go. £16m profit and a stronger squad = HAPPY DAYS !!!
  7. A VERY interesting read although I don't think that the aluminium comparison quite works. The same question still applies though- Why the hell is Michael Emanalo still at Chelsea Football Club? The Board are derelict in their duty to the Owner if this continues.
  8. I agree 100%. I have been saying the same thing for a while now. It will be very difficult with no European football to tempt the top stars, or to strengthen with anywhere near the quality we are rightfully used to. Therefore we must buy players who can do a job at a reasonable price and go all out to finish in the Top 4, then with Champion's League Football assured, do our business EARLY next summer and bring in the players we need. The 15/16 Squad suddenly looks decent again and with one or two (strength in depth) acquisitions, we should be ok. Getting Kurt Zouma fit will be a bonus this season albeit nearer Christmas and bringing Andreas Christensen back from BMG will be like signing a new £50mill defender and I agree that he is better than Stones. We really do not need too much now, let's let Conte work his obvious magic.
  9. Kalidou Koulibaly

    Andreas Christensen, officially the BEST DEFENDER in the Bundesliga, must have one hell of a water tight contract to keep him from coming back to the Bridge. Therefore we must be patient and be excited at getting him back next Season. It will be like getting a £50million signing on a Free !!!
  10. Kalidou Koulibaly

    It is quite a shock that an Italian Manager, like most of his compatriots, renowned for getting his defence sorted out first and foremost, has not displayed any great panic in sorting the back four (three ??) out at Chelsea. Is this because he is happy with what he has seen - unlikely. He will have watched VT's of last Seasons debacle and seen the players up close in training and in Austria and the USA so he will now know what he has to work with. Therefore he either knows we are trying to bring players in or he has seen players in the squad and at the Academy that he believes can do a job for him. I think that we have to trust his judgement and pray he is right.
  11. Antonio Conte - Now Officially Manager

    I have been waiting eagerly to see Conte in action and i was not disappointed. He certainly got a tune out of a very ordinary Italian team, but what I liked most was the tactics. He was straight down Belgium's throats from the kick off. The high pressing, work rate and never say die attitude shocked Belgium to the core. They were out thought and out played by a better tactician, even though player for player they are loads better. This augurs well !! I think the future is bright, provided we get him the players he wants, not the ones Emanalo, Roman or the Board think might work. Be patient, he will be watching every game while he is in France, drawing up a short list to give to the Board. Expect no signings until a week or so after the Euros finishes. He will have had a good look at the current squad whilst he was kicking his heels waiting for the Euros to begin. He will know who he likes and who he does not and will choose players to compliment this. Expect plenty of Italians or Balkans !!
  12. Two reasons: He supposedly oversees the Academy and this has been an unmitigated disaster. 20-30 players out on loan, virtually NONE with any chance of making the first team and apart from 3 FA Youth Cups what dow we have to show for it? Ruben Loftus Cheek Secondly, He is head of player recruitment so therefore oversees the scouting system at Chelsea. Who exactly has that delivered at a decent price??
  13. Come on Roman get rid of this imposter twat Emanalo
  14. Branislav Ivanovic - Your Views?

    Yes he has improved of late, but frankly he couldn't possibly have gotten any worse and let us not forget that absolutely disastrous defending of Ivan between August and December. How the Club are considering a longer deal I cannot fathom. End of this season, let him go !
  15. startedwithglenn; I agree generally, I don't think Pep is a coward but I have posted elsewhere on this site that Pep has taken the easy jobs up until now, so what about if he knew deep down that this was the case and felt that he really needed to prove himself? What better place than at Chelsea where his old adversary Mourinho, was failing ? (admittedly not withstanding last season)
