  1. I really hope we don't go in for Rice... Especially not for the £60-80M as some are mentioning. He's good, sure. But surely we'd be able to get more from that kind of investment in this climate. I was actually feeling like we had the best transfer window in more than ten years before the Mendy and Rice rumours became more serious. Even with Mendy - who IMO looks like a pretty mediocre GK - the window has still been great. I'd hoped for Kepa to grow some f**king "*"*" and start performing, but unfortunately it seems we're never going to see that. Don't think Mendy is the answer even
  2. Really agree here. If Leicester want £60M for Chilwell, I'd definately look elsewhere. But maybe Lamps and the coaching and/or analytics-staff sees something that we can't. It seems that there are several other potential players to go for in that position. To name a few - though it may not be given that all are on the market... José Gaya, Alex Grimaldo, Alex Telles and Nicolas Tagliafico. - Furthermore, just by looking at Transfermarkt for young LBs, these guys seems to be interesting candidates: Owen Wijndal, AZ Alkmaar (20) 24 Apps 1 Goal 7 Assists Luca Pellegrini, C
  3. As to your first post - I agree 100 % There's a bit moneyball to it, and obviously there's someone going under the rader, that would potentially be a complete gem to get our hands on. - In some way I belive that's what we did with Marcos Alonso. Instead of going for expensive well-known names we went for a guy that Conte wanted. Someone that has later been looked at as one of the best wingbacks in the world. Could Dunk be another case? Maybe. But I doubt it. My point wasn't even if someone would like to swap or buy Christensen - but more the that FL and the coaching staff knows t
  4. To be fair I think most people that watched the UCL or at least had som interest in football would have known about Fernandinho. After all they did splash out a pretty high amount of money for him as well. - It goes both ways though. They also bought Fernando from Shakhtar. He wasn't exactly succesful. If we were to go for a guy like Lewis Dunk, it would have to be at a max. price of £10-20M. What he offers is - as you say - experience, leadership and that rough edge. But is he a better footballer, and more intelligent than a guy like Christensen? Does he have the same potential? The
  5. Firstly, I agree with almost everything here. Though, as I know some have mentioned, I genuinely believe that the scoreline was massively misleading. Therefore, yes. I'm dissapointed with the result. A lot even. But I don't think our performance was that bad. Sure - we need some kind of solution for the team to get re-positioned when our first-pressure fails. Which it did a lot yesterday - giving United plenty of spance in the center of the field to drive the ball forward. But hopefully that'll get sorted by SFL and the staff. The penalty, as highlighted, was just bad on so many levels. F
  6. Don't really think so. Pogba is 1,91 meters tall - Ndombele is 1,80 or so. Though I'd partly agree, if you're referring til their physical presence on the field. Ndombele is a lot better defensively as well - a lot more disciplined... and he knows how to carry the ball through the middle. The best comparison to Pogba is that they're both from France IMO.
  7. Could see us ending up anywhere between 4-8 - but not lower than that. As some have pointed out we are about to get loads of talent back in the first team. Imagine... Just imagine if Bakayoko for some reason goes back and delivers. Futhermore we've got Zouma coming home, Reece James, Tammy Abraham and even Batshuayi. Though I have got serious doubts regarding Pulisic, I somewhat hope that he proves everyone wrong. Hopefully both CHO and RLC will come back even stronger. There's plenty of talent. If SFL becomes our next manager, we already know he'll be going for a 4-3-3 format
  8. Don't forget Rodrygo and Militao. A brilliant summer for Real so far... and yesterday Pogba was out saying he'd be ready for a new challenge - not to mention Eriksen doing the same a week back. Don't think they'll go for both - but one of them will surely end up there.
  9. Exactly. I've read rumours from €75M to €150M over the past 12 months. Most recently it was €100M and in the past weeks it has been €130M. Now it seems that we are telling them to pay up around €140-150M for his services. And I bet that we're going to get it - which obviously is what he's worth as well.
  10. Haha - probably, yeah. The difference between him and Sarri is, IMO, that Ten Hag offer a more direct style of football. Not just moving the ball from side to side for the sake of it. What I fear with Lamps is that our fans in the beginning will give him a long leash due to his history at the club - but then they'll turn on him in time if results and/or playing style isn't going anywhere. And I would be so sad to see his legacy partly ruined due to taking charge of Chelsea too early. As well, I think you're right about Tomori and JCS. Sadly... Tomori has been brilliant this year. Perhaps
  11. Doubt that Sarri will stay. Seems destined for Juve now. Although I love Lamps for his time here as a player, I just don't think he's ready for leading Chelsea. Imagine him against proven managers like Klopp or Guardiola. I think we'd get absolutely hammered. I would hope for something like this... Manager: Erik Ten Hag GK: Kepa RB: Reece James RCB: Azpi/Tomori/AC (Hopefully Tomori is given a chance - but another season with Derby seems logical). LCB: David Luiz/Clarke-Salter (Though JCS will probably be loaned out). LB: Emerson/Azpi RCM: Barkley CDM: Kanté/A
  12. Haha - I can't see it happening like that. But I guess that more often than not, it's written between the lines. Sure, results are good - and fans will like you for that. But results with managers whom the players and fans are backing will often mean more. Look at Klopp in Liverpool. Has won absolutely nothing, yet everyone is full of admiration for him, his personality and style of football. Everyone is backing him, from staff to fans to players... Which means that the board are backing him as well. And not just this year - or last year, where the results have been good. But long before that.
  13. My guess is that THAT is the exact reason for his sit-down with the board. Sometjing like: "I gave you top four, FA Cup final and won the EL. I did it by playing the way I told you I would. Possesion-based attacking football. Now we have a ban, and you're selling our - by far - best player. Sure, I'll stay and play our talents and most of the current sqaud - but I can't guarantee either top four nor making the final rounds of the CHL. What do you think?"
  14. Hazard leaving seems to be certain. The Sarri-Granovskaia sitdown planned for yesterday could turn out in three ways. 1. Sarri continues as our coach following his current contract, wether we appeal or not. (I think we do though - just waiting until the last minute, making sure we'll get as long as possible to do transfers this summer).> 2. Sarri continues, whiæe extending and/or changing his current contract. Probably in regards to the results he'll get us next season and the transfers coming in, as well as a reference to Hazard leaving. 3. Sarri is released from his contract, wh
