    Two Year Transfer Ban?

    You reap what you sow. We have been messing about with the young players for far too long, maybe some will actually get a game now. We have ludicrous amounts of players out on loan with little to no intention to ever play any of them in the first team. I understand that it generated money to buy players, but it was all stupidly farcical at a point, especially since so many were winning trophies, yet very few rarely got promoted.
  2. We often give players stick for downing tools / not putting in a shift etc, but you have to look at the managers after comments like the above. Managers can come in, give it a blast and if it doesn't work out, who cares, you'll get the money anyway. Not going your way? Just be stubborn and you'll get sent home with your millions nice and promptly. This says it all about modern football doesn't it? He actually doesn't give a sh*t.

    A guy who has won it all as a player and a manager. Would instantly command respect. Would be a massive yes from me

    Antonio Conte: "If you give City space behind us the game can finish not 1-0. I’m not so stupid to play against Man City open and lose 3-0 or 4-0."

    Aside from the Kante positional disaster which Stevie Wonder could fix.....this season he has swapped Barkley for Kovacic 19 times already. He isn't trying anything new, at all, we are so predictable!!

    Sarri - In or Out?

    Can't help but feel he is already doomed. We are going backwards. Jorginho belongs in league 1 in current form. It's all very depressing. Sergio Aguero though, what a player...

    Roman Abramovich

    Would hate the thought of a new owner, as it could all be so much worse. I think City can easily blow us out of the water in transfers so maybe Roman is cooling off for a while. I do worry about a few things, the stadium in particular though. Those new stadium plans looked amazing, it could transcend us to a new level for the future and it doesn't look like its feasible any time soon. If we don't do something we will be left behind. We wont be as attractive a pull for new players, we'll be missing out on about £1.5M in gate receipts each home game too without the 20,000 extra seats. Roman has been effectively exiled from the UK and now living / been given citizenship in Israel last I read. The board as well come across as a bit toxic and it seems to feed down to a weird atmosphere at the club, no doubt a lot of throat slitters. We don't know what we are getting each week with Chelsea, it is a strange phase we are in.

    Eden Hazard

    Stop playing our best player? Cutting off the nose to spite the face springs to mind!

    Eden Hazard

    I really hope he stays. Saying that, he's been here 6 years which is good service... if he does go, the world will keep spinning and new club legends will be born. In recent years we have lost Cech, Terry, Lamps, Drogba, the absolute heart of Chelsea for quite some time.. although we haven't been quite the same since, we still went on to deliver something most seasons. Real are the footballing apex if we are being honest, even though a lot of their fans are entitled arseholes, it still has huge appeal for almost every player.
