    Two Transfer Window Ban?

    I'm pretty sure Turan did with Barca what Costa did with Atletico - just trained for ~6 months until the ban was lifted.
  2. Giroud for Higuain I think is most likely the 3rd sub But I hope it's: Hudson-Odoi for Pedro, Barkley for Jorginho, and then who cares about the third one :)

    Marcos Alonso

    They've got Reguilon already displacing Marcelo, and Theo Hernandez out on loan, so I don't think they would be suitors.

    Marcos Alonso

    Arsenal play with wingbacks these days, perhaps we should give them Alonso on the cheap?

    Marcos Alonso

    It's a fair question, but I think we could find a few takers. Maybe not one of the big teams, I will concede that. I could see him going back to Italy or maybe Spain.

    Maurizio Sarri Officially Appointed

    Here's a "rebuttal" of sorts to Matt Law's viewpoint on this. Alex Goldberg called Law out on twitter and Law basically ignored the question. The theory then, was, since he didn't outright deny that Cahill was his source, then it is quite possible that it is Cahill. https://chelseaecho.com/2019/02/17/gary-cahill-club-legend-or-club-mole/ It's all quite interesting, to say the least, as both Law and Simon Phillips (creator of chelseaecho but didn't write the article) usually post solid content.

    Marcos Alonso

    I don't think it would be too difficult to sell him, or to even make a profit. We bought him for something like 24m, 3 years ago. I think we could easily recoup that. The extension he signed helps us in that regard, considering he won't be able to pull a snake move like Courtois did with a year left on his deal.
  8. Looks like he is very clinical in the box with good movement. Finishes with both feet and his head quite well. Not really sure how good the other parts of his game are, but if we want goals, it appears he would score them.
  9. I think that’s a good idea. Ideally we just extend the loan, but I’ve seen rumors that we already want to negotiate the 36m buy option down, so depending on what happens with that, buying him may be ok. But at the current 18m to extend the loan or 36m buy option, I think extending the loan makes more sense given his wages and age.
  10. Bild have reported that we have made a bid for Jovic. They also reported the Pulisic transfer before it happened, so take that for what it's worth.

    Zinedine Zidane

    An attempt at humor. He wrote a pretty piss poor article suggesting we should sack Sarri immediately. Mentioned Zidane as the dream replacement. I actually wouldn't mind Zidane as our manager, it would probably help Hazard to stay. But I'm not sure how great of a manager he is, yes we won the CL 3 times, but I'm not sure that was down to his tactics. Could be a good man manager, but I really don't know.

    Is that you, Rory Jennings?
  13. Looks like Emerson will get the start tomorrow, Alonso hasn't traveled, but unfortunately neither has RLC https://www.chelseafc.com/en/news/2019/2/13/chelsea-squad-flies-to-malmo

    Mauro Icardi

    He's starting to sound like just the type of player we don't want in our dressing room

    Christian Pulisic - Official

    I wonder if maybe the price would have been even higher if we were to bring him in January, or perhaps Dortmund just flat out told us no? Looks like the Gold Cup finishes up on 7/7, so even if the USMNT makes it to the final, it would still finish up a week sooner than the WC did last summer. Still not ideal, but I think it will all work out just fine.
