  1. I for one hope he scores 50 goals next season but Real finish in 5th, just a point off of Sevilla for the final UCL spot! ;)
  2. Time for Tammy and CHO to step up and be creative and bang in the goals. Let's do this. ?
  3. Kills me to say this but good luck in Madrid, Eden. Wish we could have delivered a Champions League during your time in London - maybe we could have kept you for longer. Hope this is a see you later and not a goodbye. But change can be good - let's just hope we invest this money wisely once we are able to actually use it! Who knows, maybe we'll find a player or two who can be even better.
  4. I am not totally surprised by Morata's comments - seems about right from what I have gleaned of him. It just gives you an insight into the mental attitude and psychology of some players and people in general. And earlier I was just reading about Memphis Depay and him now shouldering the blame for his poor stint with Manchester United. Shows you how mature the guy has become and just the total opposite of Morata. I wish Memphis well. https://www.manchestereveningnews.co.uk/sport/football/transfer-news/manchester-united-memphis-depay-book-16380335
  5. What!? Pulisic would be lucky to have half as good a career as Muller has had.
  6. You mean Sarri being blind and never giving him a chance despite our defence leaking in crap goals throughout the PL campaign and on the wrong end of multiple hidings away from home?
  7. He broke into the squad at 16 or 17 and hasn't improved year over year. That worries me very much for someone the club just spent 50 million pounds on. I don't care how old he is. Also age is becoming more irrelevant now in professional sports. It's more about when you break into the team and how much mileage you have on you. Look at Thomas Muller for instance, he set the world alight as a 17-19 year old and now can barely kick the ball forward.
  8. What is dire? 4th place? 5th place? No need to ring the alarm bells. Have faith in the core of our squad and the great young players we have chomping at the bit to get a chance. I think we will surprise some people in 19-20, including some of our own supporters!!
  9. Look, we need to face facts. It's absurd to think and expect that we will win a trophy every single year on end. We should be grateful that we won the Europa League this season (I didn't fancy us in the final whatsoever so am very surprised and happy for Hazard, Cahill, Sarri, etc., that we won) but we should start turning our attention to developing our great young players so that they don't become huge stars elsewhere like Salah, De Bruyne, Lukaku, and I could go on. The PL is actually one of the few competitive sports leagues in the entire world where there is not currently a clear dynasty (Manchester City may make me eat my words). I'm not too worried that City have won 2 in a row as both clubs have won 2 league titles in the last 5 years. That's honours even if I'm doing my math correctly. We need to build from within and in an economically viable way moving forward. Whether CAS grants a hearing or not, we will eventually have to deal with a 2 window transfer ban. Why not take advantage of that now, when we have a multitude incredible young players out on loan or in the academy who have all done phenomenally this year. Give the reigns to someone like Lampard this year, knowing that we don't expect too much. Also, you want to challenge with Liverpool? This is the first trophy they've won in 7 years and only their second trophy in 13 years!! How many trophies have we won in the interim? Let's be grateful for all the success we have had but also be smart and even copy the model that has proved successful for Liverpool and Tottneham this year by giving young players a chance. Whether that is with Sarri, Lampard, or someone else, I think the future is bright. We don't need to spend bucketloads of money to make that happen. We have all the tools already built up at Cobham/Stamford Bridge/etc. Give Lamps or whoever the manager is a couple years of working with the established veterans and mixing in the young players and we will be a forced to be reckoned with.
  10. Yes, I watch every USA national team game. Plus every single Bundesliga game is available to watch in the states and if the Premier League isn't on or in between games I'll turn to them. There's a reason he was sitting on the sidelines when fit at Dortmund...
  11. One major cup championship as a manager hasn't earned him the ability to act like a primadonna and demand that his position as manager of one of the biggest clubs in world football be sorted out when it's good for him. He has a contract, whether he likes it or not. Is that not enough for him? Anyway, good riddance. He will be the first manager at Juventus in 9 years to not bring them the Serie A title; mark my words! Let's bring in Lamps or Pochettino and let's go head first into the transfer ban with our over abundance in talented young academy players.
  12. To be honest, I'd be quite happy with a ban and replacing Sarri with Frank. I think that it could be a huge blessing in disguise as we would end up giving so many youngsters a chance. Plus, Frank has Chelsea in his blood so he knows how important it is for us to give the young guys a chance. If somehow we don't get the ban, we must sign Dybala and/or Icardi. Otherwise it is a waste of a window anyway.
  13. You're right. How have we all been so blind? It is Kante, Loftus Cheek, Hazard, Willian, Christensen, Hudson-Odoi who all suck. We should get rid of all of them instead!! And while we are at it, let's bring back Bakayoko so he and Jorginho can form the best midfield partnership in the history of football and raid Serie B, Kazakhstani League, and Greek League for top talent.
  14. I'm American but I do not share the same enthusiasm for Pulisic as others. Clearly a purchase by the club to gain a bigger fanbase in the states. He couldn't even get into the Dortmund team when he was healthy and doesn't provide enough final product. He'll be gone in 2 years.
  15. Saw that after I posted. Shame. He just scored a goal again today as Atalanta moved into fourth spot in Serie A. They are also now in the Italian Cup final.
