  1. Past hour
  2. In short, he wanted game time but wasn't prepared to take a wage cut to get it, which is fair enough but then you can't whine when you reap what you sow. I mean surely he was smart enough to realize Rudiger, AC and Luiz were going to be ahead of him in such a system like Sarri's? (his comments on Lampard are laughable, he would have seen even less time if Lampard came in as he almost surely would have prioritized Ampadu getting the EL/LC minutes). He should be thankful we changed style of play so late on in his time here, because had we gone down this road a few years earlier he would have been out on his ear during his peak.
  3. He could come out and call us all a bunch of c**ts if he likes, he won the Champions League with one leg and a Luiz
  4. CHO trained in full at the open session today and didn’t look off the pace at all. Seemed very sharp in drills and mini match. Rudiger also looked in good shape. Giroud was very on it. Limited stuff on show though as Lamps is wary of spies as we know... No Pedro or Kante training. Maybe just a rest for them?
  5. Today
  6. No, I think he comes off very salty about the situation last year, toeing the line of being unprofessional. It's the manager's job to put the team on the pitch that gives us the best chance to win while playing the way the manger envisions. Cahill didn't fit the type. He could have left for Fulham in January, why didn't he?
  7. He looks like the real deal. I think the club have had their share of over 30 strikers though, between the Giroud and Higuain signings. I'd rather we signed someone younger.
  8. Am i the only one finding Cahill really disrespectful to Sarri?
  9. Depay seems ready for a return to England, I'd happily have him leading our line. Could be our own version of what Liverpool have gotten with Salah - struggled first time around in England, goes to another league abroad, does well, and comes back ready to go. I don't think he would do quite as well as Salah has, and they don't play the same position, but I think the premise of the idea and the situation could be of the same mold.
  10. Personally we should give him the chance, I feel with how we play currently he would be great.
  11. And here he celebrates one of his goals that night.
  12. Me when Willian came on and misplaced a simple pass Sunday:
  13. 28th May 1975. European Cup Final in Paris. Bayern Munich 2 v 0 Leeds United 0. The great Bayern Munich striker Gerd Muller scores the 2nd goal of the game.
  14. Over the past few weeks, he has probably been the most negative poster on the forum. And that's saying something. Cheer up @Brutos, the future is bright!
  15. I'm not sure Willian would react in similar fashion, so it's likely a good thing Frank didn't pull the same move.
  16. https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/49415988 Clyde boss Danny Lennon, 50, helps beat Celtic colts ! Great story. Clyde manager Danny Lennon says he will "negotiate a contract in the mirror with himself" after making a cameo appearance in his side's win over a Celtic colts team on Tuesday. The 50-year-old, who retired 11 years ago, brought himself on during the second-half at Broadwood as his side earned a 3-1 Glasgow Cup victory. Lennon says his involvement was forced because of injuries. "I still have the physicality and the health to grace the pitch," he said. "I felt that I handled it no problem. I look after myself. I'm in the gym everyday - sometimes twice - and I think it's just a bit of mind over matter. "I'd do it again if called upon but I'm hoping not as that would tell me I'm getting a good squad of healthy players back. I'm actually going to go and look and negotiate a contract in the mirror with myself." Word of Lennon's involvement against a Celtic side including the likes of summer signing Luca Connell, Armstrong Okoflex and Jack Aitchison spread quickly.
  17. https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/49412873 Italian champions Juventus have called on Serie A to schedule more early kick-offs to help the club grow in Asia. Juve are below last season's Premier League top six clubs in revenue and see China as a major area for growth. The Serie A season begins on Saturday, and every game in the first two weeks starts at midnight or later in Beijing. "We have to find the right balance between domestic and global audiences," Juventus chief revenue officer Giorgio Ricci told BBC Sport. "It is not just about the broadcasting times, it is also about the rights distribution and who is showing the games. "In that sense, the difference between the Premier League and Serie A is huge. "This is a very old story and one of the more frequent reasons for fights with the league." Italy's top clubs have long debated with the league about the need for more games to be played at earlier times to maximise their chances of exposure in China and South East Asia. The bigger clubs do not believe the Italian system, which revolves around evening matches, helps them 'sell their brands' globally. And while there is an acceptance that viewing habits are changing, Juventus are frustrated at the present situation, which they feel tilts the commercial market hugely in favour of Premier League clubs. All of the Italian top-flight matches on the opening two weekends of the campaign kick off at either 17:00 BST or 19:45. Speaking in March, Serie A president Gaetano Micciche said the possibility of playing a Serie A match in China within the next three years had been discussed, but it was unlikely to happen in that timescale. Deloitte's Football Money League, published in January, placed Juventus 11th in the table of the world's 20 richest clubs. Ricci said that an aggressive commercial strategy, including becoming the first Italian club to open a branch, in addition to offices in Asia in Hong Kong, is aimed at increasing revenues as they pursue winning the Champions League for the first time since 1996. Juventus have proceeded with their plans despite the recent civil unrest in Hong Kong. Juve have also bought high-profile players, signing Portugal forward Cristiano Ronaldo for £99.2m from Real Madrid in 2018 and £67.5m Netherlands defender Matthijs de Ligt from Ajax this summer. Although they have won the Italian title on 35 occasions - including for the past eight seasons - they have lost five Champions League finals in the past 23 years. Several Premier League clubs have offices in Hong Kong, including Manchester United and Manchester City, and Federico Palomba, head of Juventus' Asia-Pacific operation, says it is a region "with huge scope for growth". Since Ronaldo joined last year, Juventus have carried out studies that showed their global fanbase has risen by 16% and their 'digital community', their combined followers on various social media platforms including Weibo, has risen by 59% to 81 million. "In the 1990s, Serie A was very popular in China. Now it is coming back again," added Palomba.
  18. https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/49420133 Jadon Sancho: Borussia Dortmund's England winger agrees new £190k-a-week contract. That's £190,000 per week ! A 19 year old, who has won 6 England caps is on that sort of money...
  19. New manager in place though right? He might have done it, there's racism everywhere unfortunately - we've seen that first hand with Tammy.
  20. Got his attention too... Matic loved playing for Mourinho. Matic is a proper pro, and he got the move he asked for.
  21. Carlisle Utd are back 'on the crest of a slump' ! They lost 2-0 to Cheltenham Town away last night in their League Two match. This after losing 2-0 to Mansfield Town at home on Saturday.
  22. Don't think he would have agreed to go there permanently because of that racism issue he had towards end of that season ... shame as I thought we'd offloaded him for almost what we paid !
  23. You’ve posted some seriously weird stuff lately. We get it, you don’t like Lampard as manager, you feel Sarri was so terribly treated by us. But Jesus Christ you’re a chelsea fan, why are you wanting it to play out like AVB and us he unsuccessful and eventually sack the manager? How miserable it must be to not be able to be positive about a club legend managing us and integrating the youth in to the side.
  24. Easy target for a prick, former Liverpool CB pundit, but he's probably right. Wouldn't be the first time in recent years that this has happened - the year Jose got the sack, Matic was subbed on at halftime against Southampton and then subbed off after 28 minutes.
  25. Really unfortunate that Milan missed out on CL football. Think they would have bought him if they had qualified.
  26. With potentially Rudiger back and eager we could look more solid at the back, i hope Norwich can't cope with our pressure and we convert our chances. Doubt this will end in a goalless draw tough haha.
