    TheWestwayWonder got a reaction from Amputechture in Van Ginkel to Chelsea   
    Is it possible that rejecting an Ajax loan offer causes them to turn down the Spurs move for Christian Eriksen? Hope so.
     
    Also, according to wikipedia his full name is "Wulfert Cornelius van Ginkel" which is just f**king awesome.

    I may have been in an altered state this morning, but I read some headline about this when I first woke up, and it convinced me to give up on the day...and on life in general.
     
    In the sleep that followed the news burrowed its way into my subconscious, and I assumed it was definitely happeneing. If not maybe I can lay off my blood pressure meds and cancel that weekend yoga retreat I had planned

    I guess someone at CFC thinks Operation Return-liverpool-to-glory must be preceding slower than expected (despite gifting them Sturridge who is now coming into his own). So I am glad we decided to give them a player for free, just to help them along.
     
    Seriously, this is f**king maddening. Gave them money for absolutely nothing (Benayoun) and a king's ransom for a player who was obviously busted. Is this some kind of campaign to become liked by the backward c**ts that run History FC?
     
    I hate them. I cant even imagine the recriminations if they actually win something and this club ends up trophyless.

    Rightfully so. Would have been a major kick in the teeth to Vitesse who will be looking to push on from their 4th place finish. Our feeder club too, would be unsporting to take him off them, promise him games and then loan him to the strongest team in Holland.

    Really hope we do not loan him there. I am sick to death of helping Liverpool out.
     
    I want to see him go to a place where he is going to get a bunch of playing time under a solid manager, and given their personal history together (and Everton's thin squad) Martinez seems perfect for the task
     
    If Moses comes on strong this year away, and Jose somehow adapts KdB and Oscar to deeper midfield spots, Moses can return a better, 23 year old player with less competition for his position.

    Kalas, like Ivanovic can play at both right back and centre back.
    That gives us three players who can play at right back and five who can play centre back. Essien too can play those positions if needed.
    As for Cahill and Luiz, they've played in two European Cup finals for us and we have won both so they must be doing something right.
    JT, one of our best players so far this season so he is showing there is life in the old dog yet.
    One goal conceded in three games so far, I would say the defence isn't something to worry ourselves over.

    TheWestwayWonder got a reaction from Mummy in Random Rumours   
    Yeah, doubtless it added value. I dunno if it was 10 million in value, but here you strike a very different tone:
     
     
     
    Which implies that the whole point of the transfer is screwing Tottenham. I dont exactly see it as the best use of resources either, but the idea that the club would spend 30 million pounds just to hurt a rival without forethought is one straight from the pages of the DM. And since you (or I) are not privy to the club's inner workings, maybe they judged the difference in value to be worth the extra money. Maybe not.
     
     
    Ignoring the fact that he proclaimed Kalas was ready in the summer, dont you think the cover that is there is sufficient? Its extremely likely that we are going to lose two of Luiz/Cahill/JT, and still have to play Brana in the RB spot. 
     
    Has JT been much better under Jose so far? (yes)
    Does it matter that Cahill is considered top class when he routinely puts in mature, accomplished performances for the last 18 months? (no)
    Is Luiz extremely talented already, and about to come under the tutelage of a coach who has improved countless defenders? (yes)
     
    There are positive signs and premonitions about the future of the backline right now at CFC. Unless Jose wants to rip out the wiring and start from scratch, I see no reason why 40 million (on Mangala or Varane or whoever) needs to be spent on the position when every position does in fact have 2 players for it. And unless Jose decides, conclusively, that someone like Cahill or Luiz needs to go to get things how he wants them, I would argue 40 million spent on the backline is nearly as superfluous as 30 million spent at wing.

    I'm excited at the prospect of Willian tearing defenders apart. Just hope this signing pays off and he can prove the cynics wrong(I must admit, I'm still on the fence with this signing). I think people are looking too much in the random Mata rumours, he's not going anywhere, the club aren't THAT stupid to sell the guy to Man U. They can get to f**k.


    P.s. f**k spuds

    TheWestwayWonder reacted to Charles Ryder in Willian   
    He'll keep one of the three on the bench, that is the operative point.
     
    Rotation is all well and good but the only way that De Bruyne, Van Ginkel and Schürrle are going to develop into top level players is with consistent game time. Fierce competition for starting places helps, but we already had that.
     
    I'm not pressing the panic button by any means, I'm sure a few departures will make everything look a bit more sensible in due course, but the fact remains that Willian is a superfluous signing; all of the qualities and tactical buzzwords being bandied about to justify the acquisition, direct running, etc, were already possessed by Victor Moses, who does not deserve to be frozen out after a solid debut campaign.
     
    The Willian purchase is akin to updating the upholstery of a Bentley that has a sick engine; everybody can see that the engine is where we need to invest our funds, we've been eying up a new one that will cost an absolute fortune and have a second-hand refurb on standby in case that plan falls through, and yet we're taking the time to switch from one shade of beige leather to a slightly brighter one.
     
    It smacks of Thiago to Bayern, minus the somewhat incestuous player-manager relationship: people are quite right to question what Willian brings to the table that others do not, and whether getting rid of a solid, serviceable squad player to accommodate him is a wise course of action.

    Just want the transfer window to shut now 'cos it's all getting very tiresome and also just a little bit worrying. Only rumours I'm hearing today are Luiz and Mata both being linked with moves out. IF there were two players in our whole squad I would not want to lose at any cost it would be Luiz and Mata (Hazard would make up the three). Sure they are just rumours with little substance at least I hope so as to lose one or either of these players would be disasterous.

    Dont take it the wrong way, but I really dont understand you at all.
     
    You love sharing these fanciful transfer yarns that some sport pages would not dream of publishing, as if you were the agent involved in the deal. Then, when people ask you for evidence for any of these stories being true, you do one of three things:
     
    1. Provide links, like the ones above, as evidence, despite the fact that most media sources will now invent these links at the behest of players, managers, agents, and freely be manipulated by them. Stories are recycled all the time. The press in other countries like Spain will act as a mouthpiece for specific information a club wants out there. Yet this time, the Evening Standard must have been correct, eh?
     
    2. back off your position, albeit slowly. You did this in the case of Isco to Real Madrid, and when I was genuinely curious about your claims, you slowly made it clear that you had no actual evidence, but that you had reached your own conclusions about the situation, seemingly out of thin air.
     
    Just reading the previous page, your claims are met with skepticism or derision, and you explain them away through a variety of tactics. 
     
     
    I highlighted this post because Stim replied to your claim that this was just a rumor. Yet, based on nothing, your response was "more than a rumor". No, Stim had it exactly right. It was just a rumor. A rumor that you liked the sound of, so you repeated it and removed all qualifiers, as if you were sitting at the table with Malaga and Chelsea brass.      Then there is something like...
     
     
    That's funny, because unsubstantiated theories (which you present as factual) are pretty much all you post. It seems clear to me that if you want to push a rumor (and yourself as the oracle that is calling it) and you can find a link for it, that counts as "evidence". But then someone says something to counteract your claims, and you dismiss it
     
    Honestly, my only question is, what do you gain out of doing all this? This is not to be a jerk, but you seem to be totally focused on transfers on this forum. You're met with skepticism by most people, and yet you soldier on when the vast majority of your claims are ultimately proven false (or, when challenged, are given up on). If this is about impressing people on an internet community, or standing out, it really is needless.
