    Zouma - If Kurt's Happy, I'm Happy!

    how is his loan spell in Everton coming along ? Is he Chelsea quality ?

    Michy Batshuayi to Chelsea

    Just because Bats and Giroud play the striker position does not mean that they are the same mold. Giroud is a hold up player who brings the others into play. Batshuayi is more Michael Oweny or Javier Hernandezy in that they cant do the physical duties like Giroud but they are more likely to be present in the right place at the right time and also score. Also, he has experience in a front 3 as a central striker and has also played with Hazard. If we are planning to play a quick pass game then his lack of physicality should not be a problem but if we persist with the need for having a hold up striker then he is a bad idea.

    Welcome N’Golo Kante

    The biggest change for Kante i feel is that in all his other teams - Leicester / Chelsea under Conte / France - the teams were more a counter attacking team than a possession based attacking team. Maybe what is being asked of Kante is beyond his current skillset and he needs to improve really fast on the offensive side of the game.

    Why do you think it is stupid ? CHO can be a left and CP can right. And given both their age - it may actually work out. I honestly dont have a problem with the club going after Pulisic. A winger set of CHO/Willian/Pedro/Pulisic is awesome. If your argument is that we can use that money to upgrade the striker position or the defender position then i will not disagree but if the club chooses to invest there and also buy Pulisic i will not complain.

    Maurizio Sarri Officially Appointed

    I dont think he will be sacked if we miss top 4. However, if our table positions is more in the range of 8th or lower and are not in a position to win the Europa league or the FA cup then yeah - he will be fired most likely. Do we know anything about our training regimen - the one thing i am noticing as the games are progressing is that our overall pace and quickness seems to be slow. Sure, there are moments of pace where we see a few people sprint around but overall when it comes to passing the ball or sprinting with the ball we seem to be slower overall. Are the players tired ? Is a major rotation of the order or are the players just losing concentration/get disinterested.

    Danny Drinkwater

    yup - splash 125 mil on Greizman, 100 mil on Kalidou Koulibaly and we have the base of a solid spine! Instead we have a middling bunch of players who are not top 4 level.

    Danny Drinkwater

    I would give him away for free - rather than have him on the bench and pay his salary. It is shocking the amount of money that we havespent on average players. We are honestly better of spending that money on bonafide superstars and using our youth to fill in the depth.

    Tammy Abraham

    Oh heck no! I would rather that he be in a team where he gets consistent playing time and builds confidence than follow the path of CHO.

    Random Rumours

    I am hoping we get someone physical - After watching back to back games where Chelsea were manhandled, I am really hoping we get a physical guy who can go at the others.

    Christian Pulisic

    Not to forget the Jersey sales in USA.

    Maurizio Sarri Officially Appointed

    If Sarri will have his way then he will not need much in transfer market - persist with his system until everyone has perfected his system. The problem is the results will suffer and he will be sacked and the merry go round will begin again. Panic buys. temporary fix - All the things we wanted to avoid. I thought we found a good answer in manager with Conte - he too got replaced, and now Sarri's system is underperforming and but we are still in the boat of uncertainty.

    Maurizio Sarri Officially Appointed

    We don't have the squad for it and honestly we now don't have the money like before. And the money we do have we don't spend it wisely (Bakayoko, Drinkwater Zappacosta). I think Costa was the last great impact making positive purchase i remember.

    Maurizio Sarri Officially Appointed

    I cant speak for the rest but what i want to see from Sarri is tactical flexibility. Different teams have different strengths and weaknesses and there is no one solution fits all (Unless you are Pep and City and plan to buy everything under the sun). We have been very rigid in our system and our substitutions and other teams are now on to us.
