If we bought Cech back as back-up and mentor to Butland we could have us a very good deal. Allison has greater experience in International football and playing for a major Italian team BUT is he a better keeper than Butland technically, I personally don't think so and Butland has got stuck with poor players in front of him most of his career and of course he adds to the English contingent.


1.) 19 Jul 2018 13:30:16
butland better than allison? dreaming there mate.

Fact or fiction I have no idea but one of the papers is apparently reporting that Abramovich is prepared to invest in new players but nine current players are to be offered for sale; Luiz, Drinkwater, Pedro, Batshuayi, Zouma, Kenedy, Van Ginkel and Piazon and probably Hazard. Any thoughts if true?


1.) 01 May 2018 20:16:00
Just a typical rag comment in my opinion C1955.
If you chuck enough darts some will hit the target.

2.) 01 May 2018 20:36:15
Similar generation TomB. What would your reaction be if true? If we sold them for the suggested amounts then I would not be unhappy if RA topped it up and we bought wisely as the team needs a real freshen up.

3.) 01 May 2018 20:54:49
Our is owned by a man I treat, for obvious reasons, with virtual reverence.
So whatever he does, I’m sorry to say, I’m going to be pretty subservient.
I have already renewed my OAP season ticket.
Under the ownership of RA I think our ticket prices have only gone up once. Which is remarkable.
So, he can sell whoever he likes and buy whoever he wants, I’m just another sucker supporter that so many clubs rely upon but few pay any heed too.
Sorry C1955 for being such a miserable old twat but I’m not having a good year!

4.) 01 May 2018 23:41:34
id tack of list of cahil luiz fabregas pedro drinkwater maybe van ginkel but kenedy zouma etc no.



17 Jan 2018 11:58:14
Reports appearing everywhere that we are interested in Palmieri of Roma for £20m. Anyone guess why we are after a player for that money who has been on loan most of his career, played one game this season for Roma and we 'might' pay £20m? We obviously have someone who likes Brazilian born players and few work out in the EPL.


1.) 17 Jan 2018 12:13:11
His equivalent to to Andy Carrol but in the left wing back position.

This lad was loaned out from Santos to Palermo and was playing as a back up to their first team player. He was then loaned out to AS Roma and was playing as a back up to Digne. He was then bought for a small fee. He also got injured seriously. This lad has hardly played enough football, if he can't make the first team of Palermo or be ahead of Kolarov in Roma then how is ever going to be good for us as a back up? I would rather throw in Kennedy and give him games. This is the story of our transfers nowadays.

2.) 17 Jan 2018 15:47:53
Palmieri isn't the finished product yet but he does have potential.

3.) 17 Jan 2018 16:23:39
We don’t need potential we need quality. Proven quality,

4.) 17 Jan 2018 17:16:35
Exactly. Had it with word 'potential'. For the last 5 years we have had potentials in our academy. We need quality now.

5.) 17 Jan 2018 17:53:33
Then let's pray that our beloved club repents and starts spending money again.

6.) 17 Jan 2018 18:37:46
Lol Obinna. I think the Torres transfwr broke camels back.

7.) 17 Jan 2018 18:53:07
£20m for Carroll, £20m for Palmieri, £40m for squad fillers. That £40 would go a long way to get someone that actually compliments the team. Come the end of the season and we lose Conte plus the transfer fiasco we have and the likes of Hazard, Courtois, Azi and even Morata would think "this club has lost its ambition". Actually, Batkley is looking a steal at £15m!

8.) 17 Jan 2018 21:36:43
Emerson had a fantastic season for Roma last season, before getting injured in May. He only returned last month for them, and has played one or two games since then.

For under 25m he'd be a fantastic buy in my opinion. We can't compete with PSG if they're going for Sandro. Emerson would be a very good alternative, if his health isn't an issue of course.

9.) 17 Jan 2018 22:53:31
CFCShak - and Aubameyang isn’t quality no? 21 goals on 23 games this season.

10.) 18 Jan 2018 11:38:12
TruBlu . Auba is more than quality. Why you reffering to a player we are not linked with?

Now the wait begins. The forum has a dozen differing opinions on any given subject therefore what do you think our starting line-up and subs will be Saturday?


1.) 10 Aug 2018 20:21:27
My squad would be


However I think it will be
Alonso at the expense of Emerson. Barkley at the expense of Kovacic as the former has had a full pre season.

2.) 10 Aug 2018 21:27:31
Given the way Sarri wants to play I also think he will go with Emerson and certainly play Kovacic. I am sure Hudson-Odoi will be on the bench and get on, Morata has to start for confidence although I feel it is more than that with him. However, Sarri might play Hazard through the middle with Hudson-Odoi and Willian either side.

3.) 10 Aug 2018 22:55:04
I like Ampadu to replace Luiz.

4.) 11 Aug 2018 09:09:14
I think Hudson Odoi might start instead of Hazard for this match and I also think Pedro will play instead of Willian.

I’ve also got a funny feeling that Cahil isn’t as finished as some people think. Not today but I think he might play a lot of games on the right side next to Rudiger as he did with JT.

Anyway, who cares what the team is as long as we get three points!

Come on my mighty BLUES.

5.) 11 Aug 2018 09:55:18
id like to see Christensen instead of Luiz. won't happen tho. if start Willian Hazard and Hudson Odoi up top.



07 Aug 2018 19:18:34
You have to hand it to Sarri, he's giving everyone a chance to prove themselves with tonight's line-up.


1.) 07 Aug 2018 21:41:43
C1955 that is bordering on glass full my friend! Great to see it😁.



05 Aug 2018 16:00:24
Always going to be a tough match and we have done well to hold it at 1-0. Hudson-Odoi, a boy oozing confidence but our only penetration. We will not get anywhere playing Fabregas and Barkley alongside Jorghino, he needs Kante and another decent midfielder alongside him as clearly his main strength is playmaking not intense defending.


1.) 05 Aug 2018 16:25:59
It all boils down to spending the money. A good opposition shows you your lapses.

2.) 05 Aug 2018 16:31:40
i agree obina we wasted money penny pinching with drinkwater barkley zapacosta pedro etc an blew huge money on an average player like morata and bakayoko. instead of buying 2 or 3 top class players we instead brought rubbish who we are now stuck with and nobody wants cause we over paid for every single 1 of them.



03 Aug 2018 14:32:11
I see Pedro has signed for another two years. I think he is Sarri's type of player but he does not last 90 minutes so he will either start or come on as an impact player.




23 Jul 2018 13:34:23
Boy does Jorghino go looking for the ball and Hudson-Odoi, albeit against poor opposition, showing his intent and awareness. Is it me or has he filled out a bit?


1.) 23 Jul 2018 16:35:48
be interesting to see if we can progress odoi into a superstar he's everything u expect from an emerging talent quick agressive confident and works hard . rlc should look at this performance an wonder why he hasn't convinced people yet.

I thought the same, Kante's new role as it appears is leaving holes in our break up play which he is a master at and with Kovacic a likely starter from now we cannot rely on Jorghino as that is not his game. Barkley looked better but he does not rack back and is still fading too quickly. It was clear from Sarri's comments that he expects a lot of tracking back when required which 'one or two' do not like doing. Luiz looks lost and it cannot be going unnoticed by Sarri and in his preseason Ampadu looked very good, I am not convinced that Sarri is taken by Christensen. Anyone else worried by Willian and this constant slowing play and then disappearing.?

He has had major reconstructive ACL surgery. You have to feel sorry for the guy, fought his way back from surgery after surgery to fulfill some of his potential last season and this happens.

Any truth that Lyon upped the price to £72m 15 minutes before the deadline?


{Ed001's Note - no that was Tuesday they did that, hence why it took until now for Chelsea to agree. Obviously a case of time and options run out so they said yes.}

Remember as long as they get their sale sheet by 5.00pm they have a further two hours to complete everything.

You are correct KingFrank. We now have a midfield that could be extremely efficient but they are not goal scoring midfielders so once again the onus will be on Hazard. If we are trying to get Fekir it will be as a forward and his goal scoring record is good but it will mean whoever plays out of him, Morata, willian and Giroud must look to get at least 10 or more goals apiece or we will struggle again.

So far the defensive system does not work with the players he is using.

We look suspect at the back. This could be which team can capitalise the most as Arsenal look woeful defensively.

I think you will find he realised that under Conte he was given a great opportunity to cement a team place and feel settled at a club and he did not want to lose that. Under Sarri he may well be used differently because of his pace, if only he could finish.

That was better performance from Barkley who looks fit but not match fit and he fades quickly and with Kovacic available I can only see him being a perennial sub. I think Pedro is a Sarri type player so will get picked regularly but to me he does not last 90 minutes so we could see Hudson-Odoi getting plenty of game time in due course. Nice touches from Morata but the guy needs a goal, Willian played well but still slowed play down at times and hats off to Alonso who I thought had one of his best games.

Ed001: I cannot fault your assessment at all. Sometimes and honest opinion when you are desperate for things to change are not received well. Kepa was a statement to Courtois I think as much as a purchase for the future as that amount for someone who has only played 54 La Liga games is a huge leap of faith. Jorghino amd Kovacic are both a major step forward for us and our dreadful midfield of last year but as you pointed out before the defenders are called upon the onus will be on Kante to break play up as neither of the others are strong defensively, that said they are better than Fabregas and Bayakoko were so a step in the right direction, Jorghino's strength is passing and Kovacic passing and strong runs. Sarri says he wants to play at pace, something we have lacked so opportunities will loom for Hudson-Odoi, he likes Pedro and clearly Hazard so the spotlight will be on Willian, Morata and Giroud.


{Ed001's Note - I really hope to see a lot of Hudson-Odoi this season, he really impresses me every time I see him.}
