  1. the thought of that prospect actually happening is scary. the worst part is it could actually happen.
  2. Maybe Not directly, but hinted. well according to the way interviews were written / reported.
  3. I really hope he stays, but at the same time he has always said he would go eventually. He did show loyalty and stay when we last missed CL football. So in a way I can understand and could accept him going to Madrid. Not as if he's looking for highest wage, he's always said Madrid. £££ plus Bale would be a good deal for us. After an inconsistent season, maybe Madrid will see Salah or Sane as a better option. Hope so. I'm not saying they're better players, just a better season overall.
  4. I know he's not consistent, but he's still better than anything we've bought recently. id sell Pedro before Willian tbh. Whens he's good he is unplayable. With the small squad we have id keep him. Plus reported 40mil for Grealish. Surely Willian is worth double??
  5. Ruben hopefully has a good world cup, even as a bit part player, and then gets a chance with us next season. He def has the talent. Cant do much worse than bakayoko. Cant see Baka improve much in 2nd season as he showed so little this year. But knowing us we'll sell for less than average money, someone will take a gamble and Loftus-Cheek will be the next Lampard or Gerrard. Not to say it hasn't happened before (Salah, DeBruyne, Lukaku, Robben, even Bertrand)
  6. By no means do I want Conte sacked, I think he's a class act. But at the minute he seems to have given up, too concerned with the board and what he hasn't got. Yes there's gripes to be had with transfer policy and whos in charge of it. Maybe Emenalo wasn't so bad. But if he's resigned to leaving and has given up, what does he really care about the future of Chelsea. Im sure hes not intentionally causing a bad atmosphere to get the sack, but at the same time its possible. I cant understand why he Waits too long in a game to make a change. in and around 80mins against united and city. Although not immediately required against united, but we were 2nd best in 2nd half. yesterday we were dreadful and t was painful to watch. Hazard as a false 9 just doesn't work, the games passing him by when he's in that role against the better teams. It will drive Hazard out of the club when he's not enjoying the football. Due to Conte's stubbornness and trying to prove a point we may end up Missing out on Champions league, losing Hazard and Courtois, Moratas confidence shredded because Conte obviously doesn't trust him in big games. signing mediocre players again as no CL. Why must we go through this cycle every 2 to 3 years.
  7. such a waste playing Hazard as a false 9 when were hoofing the ball up front. Hasn't a chance of winning long balls. service to him was awful. no wonder he looked as if he didn't care. He's being driven to look for a transfer if this continues.
  8. Considering we were apparently serious about Andy ''f**king'' Carroll, im actually happy were going for Giroud. Think he could be a decent 2nd striker. Maybe even start beside Morata in some games to provide lay offs. Giroud or Dzeko, IMO either will do. but money needs to be lowish considering their age. We seem to be looking for a stop gap. Which doesn't really work, Dembele from Septic I think would be an excellent purchase for long term.
  9. Fantastic player, and defo future captain (hopefully). I believe he should start even if Luiz makes it back into the team (also hopefully), maybe push Dave to RWB, and let Cahill and Rudiger compete for other spot. Even though Cahill is captain and done a lot for us, he is slightly the weaker link. Rudiger also looks shaky at times, especially when he doesn't start the game. But in time will be fantastic. Just worried though as Ake also had great potential and I think we should have kept him. Hope the same doesn't happen.
