  1. Atmosphere wasn't always that good. Jose often had to push the crowd. Away support is fantastic, but at home, sometimes it could be better, imo. Anyway, he's trying to interact with their fans, nothing to see there, tbf, their home support is good.
  2. I thought he's dead according to your rip? Why are you even interested in a dead man?!
  3. Once again a newly registered account, mods have to look into this...
  4. If there's one guy who knows how to win at Chelsea, it's Mourinho. Let's see if he gets his revenge. Club f**ked him badly..
  5. Looked good in the Bundesliga, continued to look in the Premier League so far (tbf only 2 games). Chelsea should have played him more, the more expensive player isn't always the better player. Chelsea sold Bertrand and he was once in the team of the season, point is Chelsea do make mistakes... But that's a start, coaches should be able to develop these kind of talents, still baffled how they can't do it here. Is the new boy in town really better?! I expect Baba to have a good season (if he stays injury free).
  6. Number 17th in Whoscored's Primera Division player statistics of 2015/2016, only Godin (speaking of centre-backs) is ahead of him. From what i've seen he was Valencia's best player and Whoscored supports my view. If that's not bossing it in Spain then i don't know what is... https://www.whoscored.com/Regions/206/Tournaments/4/Seasons/5933/Stages/12647/PlayerStatistics/Spain-La-Liga-2015-2016 17 minutes against Portugal, 45 minutes (second half) against Ghana, 70 minutes against Algeria during the knockout stages. He played his part and contributed to Germany's success 2014, imo. He's just 24 years of age, already played in Germany, Italy and Spain. Maybe he isn't as good as Luiz on the ball, but for me he's much more reliable as a defender, much less brain farts, at the end of the day that's what should count more, imo.
  7. That's your opinion, let's see, especially when taking a look at Umtiti and Zouma. Mustafi played his part in a world cup winning side, he bossed it in Spain, one of the most expensive German players, still has age on his side, let's see. I know from TC that you have good football knowledge, but disagre mate. Best way is to wait and see... [emoji4] Mou once said he wanted Costa a year before but had to wait. Hummels went for similar money, i don't think Luiz playing out from the back that good, there are so many players out there. Anyway it's already done, moaning doesn't change/help anything, so let's see what happens... I know Luiz is in good books for a lot of fans, no problem for trying to talk up a so-called one of us.
  8. But i'm not paid thousands of bucks week in and week out to find the best possible player for Chelsea. Buying a player who for me has never looked like a 32 mil player -now he's even 29 years of age doesn't impress me one bit. PSG look actually quite relieved that they parted ways, Mou didn't rate him that highly, Emery too, tells an unpleasant story, imo. Yeah yeah yeah Luiz is the GEEZER, his to tongue is always out, he comes across as a decent man, you can always see him sweat during work... club tries to find some identity, Luiz fits the bill. Second coming is the new cool thing to do, okay.
  9. He should have never come back here, PSG made the deal of the year. He's better than Cahill atm, but why not someone like Bailly, Umtiti, Mustafi will remain a riddle to me...
  10. It looks like Conte knows what he wants, so we have to wait and see who he'll finally bring in, point taken. Another striker isn't the worst idea, but personally i would have had other priorities. There are several opinions whether or not United will be great again. I think Ibra will be ready, moreover i think a lot of players have a lot of potential, talking about the likes of Schneiderlin, Herrera and others. But i agree with you, in the end it's just a guessing game. Klopp must have surely put a plan in motion. They've already strengthened in three departments, money isn't everything, their two guys in defence are good players. Looking forward to their 'gegenpressing'. Top 3 is possible. But we'll see.
  11. He could have waited and looked how things went when in the CL, he's got everything at Leicester. We can match Leicester's salary, most likely he'll receive even more, but he won't double it here, imo. There're no guarantees that Chelsea will be in CL next season, maybe there're only three spots left, y*ds and the Arse are notorious bottlers. Italy are on the rise again... I don't think we've become Pool (King Kenny as head coach ) but personally i rate Mou higher and i do question the spending. We still pay money, yes, but i'm not sold on the priorities, look, instead of a defender, first things first we buy another Belgian talent, mhh. Yeah, it's not over, still the beginning, but over the years i've more and more developped some serious doubts! I think Scouse will be a nasty opponent this season. I rate this 'Klopper' guy highly, i can see a young, dymanic and hungry team going cocks out.
  12. At least one of them has to be a defender. Would love a fullback and centre-back. Still, mates think we could do with a winger, guess it depends on the system. I'm still scratching my head why Kanté wants to come, but who am i to complain?! [emoji4]
  13. You'll get used to it, most of these guys are newbies, that's all you need to know! None of the guys who regularly go to the Bridge would chat sh*t like this.
  14. Because life has always been linear and fully calcuable, jeez man. If i were you i would put the big bucks on exactly this outcome, according to you it's there for the taking. [emoji4] Anyway i agree with your first paragraph. As sad as it is, Jose's gone. Emenalo will always be one of us.[emoji8] Now put some summer dealings in motion, about time. When Vardy tells Arsenal to f**k off, we can also approach our targets, get off your lazy ass.
  15. No need to be upset, mate kiwi. [emoji4]
  16. At talkchelsea he's called the 'cancer'. Mate kiwi is missing out on this debat, shame. [emoji4]
  17. Jose has to shoulder some of the blame. This has been discussed time and time again, so no need to make the rounds. But he's the only one who had to suffer the consequences, at Chelsea it's always the coach who is wrong, who gets all of the blame, never ever the players. In my point of view Jose was ready to stick it out with us, ready to fight for his life, committed himself during an unbelievable crisis, i can only speak for myself, but that's proper Chels'. Do you remember what Abra tried to do with the CPO? But because the big Russian has got money, he gets away with murder. What Mourinho did was questionable, but i get where he was coming from, lots of iPhones, Pads and a sometimes a lame atmosphere. Too many tourists, the support could be better, just take a look at Dortmund in the Bundesliga. But i really loved who we, the fans, supported Mourinho through this tough spell. It doesn't get any better than this. It's shame what happened, he belonged to us, to this club. Mourinho will have some digs at Abra and some of the players, rightly so, but i do think the Chelsea fanbase is untouchable. But we'll see, i for one love the man to bits, but of course i support Chelsea no matter what and hope than we can beat our friend Jose. It's about time after Inter. Yeah, i know some older members too, some of them are fed up with Jose's antics, they have no time for him, but you're different, you carefully take your time to call him out.
  18. Post this on Talkchelsea and become member of the week! Congrats! What is it with some of the new guys, hating so much on Jose, proper complex. [emoji2]
  19. Nanana kiwi [emoji4] there are a lot of Mancs out there who remain very sceptical of Blind. Just take a look at their game against West Ham. Much more success with this 'story' on TC, i guess. [emoji2]
  20. Roman owns the club, so there is no way he's forced out. Sacking Emenalo is perhaps blown out of proportion but bringing in a new guy and splitting the work wouldn't be too bad, imo. Spotting young talents is within his abilities, but furthermore?! Not sure! Conte must be allowed to choose his guys, we want it to work this time. [emoji4]
  21. Instead we bought a 5 mio. house which the child (Jose) didn't like so since then we have an expensive dust collector. No use at all!
  22. Thanks man! The media reported that the first bid started at 20 mio., time and time again it went up a bit but it took too long, imo. One has to wonder why they didn't ask for the price instead of coming back over and over again. They wanted to get him on the cheap, hoped that they could unsettle Stones (filled in a transfer request) and disrespected Everton by saying they wouldn't keep a player against his will (okay, that was on Jose, at the end he panicked). Shortly before the transfer window closed media reported that there were big bids for Pogba and Marquinhos, if that was true, why so late? They wouldn't have had a pre-season with the guys and with all due respect, trying this late to buy these kind of players is very difficult, one could guess the board wanted to fail, but knew that they had to bring some excuses to the table. Bought Pedro for 30 quid, panic transfer at its best instead of a proper central back or midfielder, that's always the case since Marin, expensive average wingers, but what can i say, what can i do. Anyway the business has been poor for some time, nothing learned from 2009/2010, so the roller coaster continues...
  23. Currently he's going through a rough patch. That's on him, nevertheless i think Martinez could have handled him better, benching him for fun, a 21 year old... confidence isn't high! I think we all saw in september in the away game against Everton what the boy is capable of. Cahill should be our Dante, meaning central back number 4, which leaves us with Zouma (injury leaves doubts, because he's relying very much on his physical strengths, imo) and hopefully Christensen next season. Therefore i think we need another defender. Some might think a more experienced guy, someone like Hummels would be better, but i think Stones already has what it takes. Turning to Granovskaia: Starting around 20 mio. fine, but penny pinching.. bad idea. This desaster set the things in motion, Champions of England and cup winners under the watch of Jose Mourinho, but not able to pull this one off. Showed our opponents how weak we have become, never recovered. The coach has to be trusted and demanding who he wants, he sticks his head out for this, it's all about results and he's the first one to get the boot when sh*t hits the fan... I think Granovskaia and the board got it very wrong, neither Papy nor Baba have been brilliant thus far. What good is money for you when you don't spend it? Regards and sorry for the English!
