    Sarri - In or Out?

    Zappacosta for Azpi when you're 2-0 down in the Cup with 10 minutes to go, must be taking the piss.

    Maurizio Sarri Officially Appointed

    Barkley for Kovacic will change the match.

    Nathaniel Chalobah

    http://www.skysports.com/football/news/11668/10932605/watford-interested-in-chelsea-midfielder-nathaniel-chalobah Some reports claiming he's pushing for a move

    Diego "the guv'nor" Costa

    Being reported in the Guardian as well, though I know this is Sid Lowe's paper. Seems pretty weird to me.

    The Nathan Ake Thread

    https://www.theguardian.com/football/2017/may/17/bournemouth-nathan-ake-asmir-begovic-bids £30m for Begovic and Aké is good money. I'd be inclined to let Asmir go if we can find another HG keeper of similar standard. Aké on the other hand we should keep, depending on who we buy/call back he will have a bigger role next season.

    Tammy Abraham

    Nothing wrong with goal poaching. Even tonight there were a few occasions where Alonso/Moses flashed great balls across the 6 yard box with nobody in sight; it's happened a few times in other games like vs Palace. He's an option and I'd love it if Conte took a look at him in pre-season. Not getting my hopes up given our track record with integrating youth however.

    Diego "the guv'nor" Costa

    I think someone else said it in the matchday forum, but can anyone point to something he's done that's been constructive in the past 2 months? Only the flukey own goal vs Bournemouth, which came from him completely shanking a half volley. He is an actual liability as it stands- doesn't get in the six yard box, can't hold up the ball or link up with the wingers, gives the ball away constantly. Can Michy really be that bad?!

    Eden Hazard

    https://www.theguardian.com/football/2017/mar/23/real-madrid-eden-hazard-thibaut-courtois-chelsea Not good, Sid Lowe is fairly reputable unlike the hacks at the Sun/Mail etc. At the risk of astounding naivety, isn't that basically tapping up? Guess in this day and age it's normal, but then again Real Madrid are coming out of a transfer ban.

    Jose Mourinho thread

    It's in Mourinho's DNA to be an antagonist, he finds it difficult to do it any other way. Not always a bad thing of course- we know more than any other club that the 'us against the world' mentality in 2005 produced phenomenal results. However he came back to us as the 'Happy One' which lasted about a week before he was up to his usual mind games, albeit much grumpier this time around. His posturing to Conte and the crowd is just wummery, don't rise to it or give him an excuse to play the victim card (in Brazil so couldn't watch but sounds like a minority singing against him?). Let our football do the talking, support our coach and players first- as has been the case all season.

    Michy Batshuayi to Chelsea

    Hoping for some cracking link up play between Dave and Jeff.
