  1. Antonio Conte - Now Officially Manager

    Stop thinking/talking about transfers, focusing on the remaining games, and Conte will turn it around. I don't think anyone really wants him out, but he needs to be more diplomatic and more importantly getting some wins on the trot.
  2. Olivier Giroud to Chelsea

    A decent performance, got a good understanding with other attackers, and always willing to get on the end of the cross, until the head collision put him off the game. Arsenal clearly missed him on Saturday, their plan B was with us.
  3. Alvaro Morata

    Decent cameo, didn't look like a man who's completely down on confidence. A full game in the FA cup tie will tell us a lot more.
  4. Chelsea V WBA (PL) Mon 12th Feb 20:00 UK

    Desperately needed a win, had some luck but we just about used up the bad luck quota of the month in the last 2 losses. Conte took the gamble to play Cesc in the midfield and paid off, we were much faster in transition and kept the ball a lot better. Hazard was in a different league again, we know Real will be sniffing around again, we need to do something big to keep him. I though Giroud was good, and all the sudden we got 2 big strikers in the team, a good sign for the tough games ahead.
  5. Michy Batshuayi to Chelsea

    18 months + 12 months optional, it's entirely possible.
  6. Michy Batshuayi to Chelsea

    Giroud gets a 2 and half year deal at most, I heard it's 18 months. Realistically, Batshuayi could come back 12-18 months later and get his second chance with us, at least we'd get a buy-back clause like we have been doing recently. If the merry go around deal does go through, it's a peace offering to Conte, give him a proven striker he could use
  7. I'm a bit more concerned about this game than 24 hours ago, although the false 9 system has worked well in the past 12 months, without a real striker as a backup option is risky. It's clear we will play our part in the merry go around and let Batshuayi, don't think he'd be in the mood for the game even if he's with the team. Judging by Conte's pre-game comment, he's not very keen for this game either. We don't even have Willian to prefer the 3 attackers system, will be a tough game.
  8. Do we even have a striker for this game? I think Morata is still out and Batshuyai is likely to be on his way out, whoever comes in tomorrow won't be ready for this game. Good news is Bourmemouth doesn't park the bus well, it should be a failry open game and we should get home provided we dont misse 3 one on one chances.
  9. Olivier Giroud to Chelsea

    Not a bad second choice striker for the new couple of years, and provide more challenge to Morata. No way Mariana will pay them 35M, she's earning her money by cutting cheap deals. I'm not too bothered either way, if we keep Batshuyai and finally give him a chance to prove himself, it's pretty good too. He's more valuable to Arsenal than what he got credit for, assume he's gone and they got the 65M striker, they basically got 2 identical strikers with no plan B.
  10. We should have put a bit more faith in the youth players, just because it's a semi all the sudden the likes of Masouda get zero game time. League is priority, CL is essenitial, why can't we even giving the youth players a game in a mini-mouse cup semi?
  11. Antonio Conte - Now Officially Manager

    The two transfer windows really drove Conte nuts, we were on a decent run towards the end of the year then as soon as the transfer window opened everything went down hill.. Most of us agree he's right about it, but by putting everything in the open, and let it affect his judgment on the field is not the best way to go about it.
  12. Don't play Hazard for god sake, the cup result are almost irrelevant if we keep losing players for injuries and suspensions.
  13. Olivier Giroud to Chelsea

    We are linked with any striker over 5'11, seriously we should just get Heskey out of retirement and be done with it. The only rumour had any truth in it was Dzeko where Roma acknowledged anything, the rest are just media wind ups.
  14. Palmieri

    Is he a confirmed signing now? Otherwise it's pretty silly for us to get rid of Kennedy, since we are running out of players. This is probably a 'long term' signing, don't expect him to play immediately, we still got Zapacosta who could do a decent job at LWB.
  15. I'm not losing sleep over this, it is a mini-mouse cup whether we win it or not. The most annoying thing is we had to play 180 minutes to get knocked out, to be honest I don't think either side fancy playing City in a month time, who should have a 10-12 points lead by the game day and could afford to risk a league game to win this. We didn't find out anything we haven't noticed already, the shooting is still erractic, without the first choice Gk the defence is shaky, midfield is not dominating, and we run out of attacking players even on the bench. I don't think under normal circumstances Barkley wouldn't have played, he got thrown into the deep end, but life will get better for him. I thought it was a mistake starting Pedro, he's been awful this season up to date, and does anyone seriously believe Batshuyai would save the day? He should have started, at least he'd have space to run into when the game is even. Lastly, f* Arsenal, they can take all the winning selfie they want, they won't even win this mini-mouse cup and we will finish ahead of them in the league.
