  1. How do you know we're trying to sign Traore and Coman? There are about 25 youngsters in the development squad, and in every age group under that are new batches of kids training for a career in football. At best, only a handful are good enough to go on to the first squad. The rest will be released or sold, outright or after a loan. This is how our acadamy works, and probably every academy of top level clubs. Those kids know that, their priority is to make a living playing football, and if that's not at Chelsea, then elsewhere. Nothing worrying about that.
  2. No rumours yet on Wilfred Zaha?
  3. The usual mid July moan. There's still over 6 weeks to go. Also, we have no idea what goes on.
  4. I only now notice Reece James squeezing his eyes shut out of shere delight
  5. Think hard, and you probably can
  6. Have you considered a career with Britain's tabloids? They're pretty good at being baselessly suggestive too.
  7. So, no knowledge, just guesswork That remark about what it says about Tammy makes no sense at all.
  8. Welcome Jay. I'm also from the Netherlands. The best way to try and get a match ticket is becoming a member. Check the club's website on the details https://www.chelseafc.com/en/tickets---membership/membership
  9. Why would you say that Tammy can't find a new club? Is he looking for one, or is the club looking to offload him, as far as you know?
  10. I prefer the women's shirt You're keeping the socks, right?
  11. I'm sure Flo will model it for you if you ask him nicely.
  12. I'm starting to get used to seeing it in the club's app, and next step will probably be that it’s growing on me. That reminds me that I need to find a discounted third kit of last season, I've become a fan
  13. Good luck Oli, thanks for all the goals!
  14. I had no idea Arsenal players had to wear bullet-proof vests against their own supporters
  15. No. I make a point of not discussing prats like Maguire
  16. Good. I hate green kits, but to be fair, some players blend into the background no matter what they're wearing. With socks it's a slippery slope. Before you know it, UEFA gets involved and bans blue socks. Something big is at stake here!
  17. Right, right So what team was the surprise package of the Euros? For me it were two: England and Denmark. On and off for about 25 years I've put money on England to win it, always to lose my bet. I gave up in the end. Reaching the final almost broke the mould of failure. Almost... Denmark rose above itself after a dreadful start and a traumatising event with their teammate. I honestly wonder they would have made the quarter finals if Eriksen hadn't collapsed. Realisticly they shouldn't even have progressed from the group stage.
  18. I do have nice fatty parts, kind of like Willian and Hazard at the start of preseason training, I can't blame her.
  19. Ohhhh! Mine looks up to me with nothing but love, I see it clearly.
  20. I did not see that coming. Most of us had high hopes for him, but probably the club on balance felt it was better to sell him. Palace ain't exactly Barcelona (although Barcelona ain't exactly Barcelona anymore these days), so perhaps we've been rating him too high? It's nice to dream about a steady progression of academy players to the first squad, but let's be honest: how probable is that in view of the high level of the competitions we participate in? At the end of the day, the club, the supporters, want to reach as high as possible and win silverware, and we can only do that with a good mix of experience and promise. Not all our academy graduates can deliver, and we're not doing so badly all things considered. Besides, sometimes the assessment can be wrong, both in keeping and in selling, plus there are impactful injuries to be considered (think RLC). Dreams are not reality.
  21. That's harsh. Can't we say cats have a strong opinion of Munkie? Poor fella has already been called a tosser by Malta Blue incarnate
  22. Bad news: Kepa has already abandoned all grooming lessons from Oli
  23. Which parts of Tammy and CHO have been offered ?
