  1. I guess what I see as an issue is that we send Ania away but pay good money for Zappacosta who doesn't appear to be any better. We have had a great youth team but none of it gets to the first team.
  2. https://www.90min.com/posts/6388246-torino-president-confirms-permanent-signing-of-chelsea-youngster-ola-aina?utm_source=fotmob&utm_medium=share I was quite disappointed to see this. €10m seems quite cheap for a decent youth player these days.
  3. I get the desire for results but how does the board expect anything to change if we keep sacking managers? If I were a decent manager I'm not sure I'd want this job... we've become a joke.
  4. Some of those a really good. I love the hoop throw back to the 80's design. The actual one? Nah. I didn't buy last year's but I'll pick it up cheap now because I'm not buying that monstrosity.
  5. You're not kidding! He should be playing as much as possible between now and the end of the year so he knows we want him.
  6. We'd have to trigger the extended loan option, we can't sign him.
  7. Well it's going to get quiet in here, since we can sign any players until the summer of 2020... Of course we can still sell players but I would hope that we don't because if we start that we'll be unable to strengthen. I guess this means Kovatic will be going back to Real too.
  8. Out. If he can't admit that he needs a Plan B then he's no better than Wenger was and we'll become the new Arsenal, scrapping for 4th, finishing 5th or 6th year in year out. Maybe the occasional cup win but never a title tilt. It's too early for Lampard, I've no idea who in earth could sort out this mess. Honestly I think the problems run deeper than just the manager.
  9. It's tricky, I mean how do you convince Drinkwater to move to a little club like Madrid?
  10. He's good but *very* young. It'd be a hell of a gamble taking a young kid away from home like that. Maybe if we bought him this year, loaned him out like we did Courtois and played Willy this year it might make sense but I'd be concerned if we were to make honour number one this year.
  11. Deadline Day moves for Lewandowski, Donnarumma and Fekir. Nah, just kidding we'll sign nobody and finish 6th or 7th.
  12. Thierry Henry looked pretty rubbish a Juventus until a different coach poached him and helped him realise his tallent by playing him in the right way. Bakayoko had one lousy season under Conte, how do you know that he won't respond better to Sarri and look like the player Jardim had everybody purring over at Monaco? Everybody laughted when we signed Lampard from West Ham, how was that 22 year old going too strengthen our team? I believe he did okay once he was given a chance. Everybody expects instant results but that's not how it works for the vast majority of players. Give the guy a break
  13. Apparently we've offered £30m plus Drinkwater for Zaha... which has been turned down. The market is ridiculous. £60m for inconsistent wingers like Zaha and Mahrez while Barça are quietly picking up Malcolm for just over half that? At this rate we would be better placed to keep giving CH-O a run out, if Zaha is £60m then he's got to be worth at least £65m [emoji23]
