  1. Glad to hear he's signed a new deal and will be good to see him getting football. However it seems to me Conte doesn't fancy him as part of any of 'his' sides. If so he'd be sending him to a side who play a similar formation and like to play 'football'. Zouma already has the physical attributes but the reason he doesn't work in this side is he isn't good enough on the ball. Unlikely to see that side of his game improve at Stoke but hopefully I'm wrong!
  2. Juve have already lost Alves & Bonucci, I'd be very surprised if they sold another of last year's defensive starters. Think the fans are already outraged at the Bonucci sale, Sandro would be the tip of the iceberg.
  3. For me it shows a level of commitment. It would be a PR disaster if Conte were to leave in the next few months, and being a club that has had several PR disasters in the past I think we're keen to avoid this. He's signed for another 2 years, meaning if he stays that's 3 years in the role. 3 years at Chelsea is seen as longevity really, and Conte doesn't strike me as someone who wants to build a 'dynasty' and be here for 10+ years and that just isn't the way our club works either. I'm hoping for another successful 2 seasons and a serious crack at the Champions League!
  4. This should be sent to every prospective striker we are trying to sign as a bargaining chip. This man will give you goals on a plate if you make the simplest of runs.
  5. As much as he's done for our club on the pitch he's never had an ounce of respect off of it. Threatened us with transfers on several occasions. Always been outspoken on international duty saying how he wants to go to this club or that club, and the tip of the iceberg for me was his childishness about the China move in January. He was the Premier League top goalscorer playing in the team walking towards the title, what more could you ask for? We should have cashed in then, taken a lot more money and called it a day as he did nothing from January onwards. This latest example of his attitude really does side me towards Conte who clearly has to deal with this fool on a daily basis . Thanks for the goals Diego, fantastic striker on his day but we no longer need players like that at the club.
  6. Bakayoko & Kante in a two man with Cesc in front? Hazard playing just off whoever our striker is? Could be a reason to change to a 3-5-2?
  7. It means have some faith. The impatience of Chelsea fans these days is laughable. Have faith in the club to get the deals done, us moaning as fans isn't going to achieve anything. We've been blessed with a fantastic owner and a fantastic infrastructure and coaching staff, we've won 2 of the last 3 Premier League titles, and barring one season have challenged for the last 15. Give it a rest.
  8. Hope the Valencia link is a loan and not a perm deal. Needs a season of first team football before we sell him, he's barely had any games since his injury and it's hard to say whether it's impacted him long term.
  9. Pessimistic way to look at it. There's already been 5/6 loans with the likes of Aina, RLC, Brown, Abraham all heading out of the door. Clearly Conte has seen enough in training to integrate Musonda into the squad. He would already have been loaned by now if this were the case, signs are positive.
  10. Deal is done. On to the next one...
  11. Great news he's got a squad number. Probably deters another loan move, be interesting to see what football he gets and what impression he makes but with the amount we've already/set to loan out he must have impressed in training which is a good start!
  12. Be interested to see when we sign him (yes I'm confident) who the outgoings are. Matic would be an obvious, but I know Chalobah is holding off signing a new deal as he needs first team assurances and is linked with a move to Watford. If he does go it remains to be seen whether Bakayoko is worth losing Matic & Chalobah for?
  13. Can see him slotting into the RCB role and Azpi being moved to RWB if we don't buy anyone for there. Some of the key goals we conceded last year notably against Spurs were down to crosses to the back right post and Azpi/Moses missing a header, Rudiger would solve that problem. He can also play full back too if we switch to a back 4 at any point. Good versatile option and I must say I'm pleased (if he can stay fit)
  14. Read the first two words of that statement and have a think about it...
