    I know it is weird seeing Messi in something else than a Barca shirt. The way it ended was certainly not the way you want to see it end for them. 
    But people, football romantics, go absolutely nuts and see ominous Paris a hell for Messi and the worst thing they can imagine. 
    It is a brilliant club with wealth and with one target in mind... Win the Champions League once, then second time, then third time and so on. 
    Get over it.

    I agree these leagues need some laws and systems to prevent this from happening at this scale. However we are Chelsea fans and Chelsea have basically started all this. These days though we are playing by the book even if we are are stretching the FFP with some planning. 
    If Roman didn't buy us ManU, Arsenal and Liverpool would be sharing the title between them as they always did. 
    Times change, leagues changes, interests change. A new thing happens and it sets new stuff amotion and new laws have to get into place.

    What I am trying to say here is you are drawing a line to somewhere grey. You don't know what Liverpool American owners have done. It is easy to target Russians, Arabs as people in general don't trust them. Bottom line: we don't know who is the Bill Cosby of owners.

    I disagree. I agree some if your points are correct (about the horrors) but you don't know what the CEO's of Manchester United for example do and get away with. Same goes with Roman's history and how he made his fortune...if we are going even further you might think what you buy in your every day life. Gasoline, IPhone, sneakers, consumer electrics. Is any of them made with sustainability or human rights in mind? So why cherry pick football and PSG? Envy? 
    Now I personally think these matters need to be corrected. We are probably on level with that. A small slice of entertainment like City or PSG are is what it is; cherry picking.

    For me slating a club like PSG or City as a Chelsea fan is well... Idiotic. If you have come to terms with the fact you have a billionaire owner and everything that comes with it you should be able to stomach everything PSG owners do.
    For French league PSG is the most important club by a county mile if they value international and domestic exposure which they naturally do. Messi coming in is a place where French league executives won't start the talk about FFP like La Liga just did. They won't shoot themselves in the foot.

    What we had in our advantage late in the season is the change. TT came in and immediately we switched to 3 at back and completely changed the way we played. Now every team know exactly how we play. Remember under Conte we did this same switch. Second season was really difficult. 
    I don't expect as much difficulty as we look well oiled and most of our players are suited to this system. 
    15 out of 24 teams in Euros played 3 at back and in the Prem you will see more of that for sure. 3 at back itself does nothing. It how you implement it. TT knows how to play it. Not many teams can field Jorginho - Kante double pivot. 
    With Lukaku in I hope we are getting closer to our xG numbers.

    If we can't land Kounde just stick with Zoum. If he wants to leave promote Chalobah. 
    Now I see what the club wants with Kounde. He is a ball playing CB like Rudiger. Zouma or Chalobah are more "d-first, safe pass" type of defenders.

    I think Ziyech doesn't get enough credit here. He is the most creative outlet we have. You can see he is an artist and when an artist is in tune they do something beautiful. He doesn't care if a move doesn't work he sees an opportunity and takes it. We absolutely need that.

    Azpi played his part really well and we looked better when he came on. 
    If you look at how we lost control when Kante and Werner went off my comment would be that we missed Werner almost as/just as much as Kante Werner stretches the defence despite average first touch and helps a lot with our possession game.
    Mount is a good player but he does a different job to werner. I think we need both.
    Havertz got his assist and that wasn't the only good cross he put in. Will learn from missing his pen and it didn't cost.
    Bringing Azpi on was such a good move for the team and I feel sorry for Tammy but at least he knows where he stands and so can make a decision.
