  1. I have been fearing this for months now. Can't think of anything worse that can happen to this current squad, sure it would be sad if Hazard leaves but this home grown talent is also priceless, nobody would be crazy enough to let him go even in football manager let alone real life... In practice, to let go of a talent like this is done by poor clubs in poor countries that simply sell anything that is of any value, I would be mindblown if Chelsea sells him. Why all the fuss about the academy then, if all the talent is either sold for nothing or wasted on loans forever and never given a chance...
  2. Multiple sources said that Barcelona indeed wanted Willian but that Chelsea didn't want to sell. Even Willian said that his future was unsure at the time. Saying that all rumors are invented is just as ridiculous as saying that all are true. Rumors about players joining months before they actually joined is enough proof that some were real, but to think that just because a transfer didn't happen that there was no activity is being silly.
  3. Willian to Barcelona was a real bid many sources reported that, and since Chelsea signed Michy for 40m it's maybe realistic that Dortmund offered the same amount so that Chelsea gets back their invested money. Hazard to Real Madrid is real as well and not even a secret. Just because it didn't happen it doesn't mean there was nothing there.
  4. Willian and Batshuayi looked real enough, missed opportunities.
  5. They do see that Willian is poor but because of the lack of trust for Morata/Giroud and Hudson-Odoi, Willian is still getting decent minutes, also while he is missing a clear cut chance almost every game the fact that he is getting into chances alone does help his case. Crazy how Willian has had problems, playing at the World Cup and while he looks dangerous nothing happens and then Costa comes in and the whole attack lights up for Brazil. Willian for me has always had the world class quality because of his speed and technique but ever since he acted badly towards Conte I changed my opinion of him.
  6. Yes he's a left back and Bayern don't mind to pay 80m. Recent thing I saw is that Crystal Palace wants to splash 40m euroes on Jovic.
  7. If the board on top of everything manages to lose Hudson-Odoi next season we might as well not play with any wingers at all...
  8. Yea you're right the club refused that big offer and wanted even more...
  9. I never needed to change my opinion, we should have sold him in the summer when someone was crazy enough to offer 40m for him.
  10. Is there any comparison to other clubs from the league, that would point to how the club is really standing compared to the rivals?
  11. Hazard reminds me a bit of Henry at this point...by far the best player that maybe wants a new challenge and that looks bigger than the whole squad.
  12. Scored 2 goals today as well: Bayern will get Hernandez from Atletico even if he signed a new 6 year deal, it will cost them 80m euroes, but they are ready to not be satisfied. While we still don't have a proper striker.
  13. Sacked in the morning, third season, December. Predicted by many.
  14. He's doing his role, it looks like what Sarri wants he has been accomplishing.
  15. All 3 of them deserve to play, IMO RLC the most. But all are still not in their prime years and can improve, if all 3 can accept to be in rotation then the best decision on paper is to keep all of them, I would value Kovacic above 35m though. We do lack stability in midfield and maybe Sarri would prefer to sell for example one of the two (that have a contract) sign Kovacic and bring a player for his own taste but having in mind that he said that he doesn't want to be too much involved in the transfer market I have a feeling that it will be the players who will decide if they are happy with their current roles or if they want more. Maybe RLC can try to play as a striker, he has 3 goals in the league and 3 in Europe, he's strong and tall...and we need a striker so a win-win if it works.
  16. I just think it's wrong to say that if he stays that he would only do it if Real Madrid doesn't want him anymore. Otherwise I agree if it happens that Sarri plays him as a cf and if he's not willing to play as a false 9 then obviously he should decide what is the best for him, I think that we really need a striker and that this problem can be fixed with around £80m.
  17. If he signs a new contract it's because he wants to stay. He isn't unhappy, he just wants to win more and doubts if he can do it with Morata for example.
  18. Hazard as false 9 got 2 assists this game, though the second one was from a corner kick. I don't know what's best but I do know this match everything worked as planned, that doesn't happen every time but the fact that Pedro and Willian (this time on the left side) played at the same time, made me think that maybe RLC could play that false 9 instead of Hazard since he's strong and tall and already scored 3 goals in the league.
  19. Someone wrote a comment:"The banker beating the "best coach" in his first season at 60% capacity." LOLOLOL
  20. Sarri told us months ago that Kante is going to play in a different role where he just needs to improve his last third efficiency where he will be capable of scoring goals. And I believed him since I will always remember his goal vs Manure, and today it happen he scored and he even switched with Jorginho in the second half and played more central which was exactly something I have been writing here on the forum a week or days ago. Kante is our legend.
  21. Even if he was playing better when you look at the goals nothing really changes, fact is Christensen couldn't mark Jimenez and the rest of the defense did 0 work done, he's not really that much of a key reason why bad things happen but most on the last few pages agree that he should be dropped out of the team.
  22. I wouldn't blame Alonso that much, I mean we all know that he has always been a bit weak defensively but just look at the goal situations last game: Second goal the ball is lost from the midfield ( Willian ), Alonso tried to cover the area more in the center because Christensen can't cover nor outrun a 190cm tall Jimenez, so at the end he tries to stop the low cross which made him the only player that actually tried something at that moment. First goal, again ball is nowhere to be found by anyone from the midfield, opposition runs through everyone at the midfield, the pass in empty space towards Jimenez that outruns Christensen and all Alonso can do is watch since he is already out of position and behind Jimenez. I dare to say that this first goal influenced Alonso to position himself more central during the second goal because he noticed that Christensen can't mark Jimenez at all. So stop bullying Alonso, other players did absolutely nothing at both conceded goals!
  23. The club should have sold Willian for £40m and promote Hudson-Odoi to the bench at the start of the season.
  24. Kante signed his for £290000, Hazard would get £10k more per week, I'm hoping that this is like a promise to spend and invest in the squad, new midfielder and a striker...maybe I'm too positive? Otherwise if what you say is true, it would be the worst deal ever, if Hazard was lets say in Napoli they would never let him go for only 100m...fk
  25. Officially Chelsea offered £300.000 a week new contract, Hazard to react now, I think he'll sign it.
