Anyone watching madrid vs roma?
Ca$h£€y is startin
We've seen

Cole---Hazard

Azpi----Hazard

Now

Luis----Hazard

Im interested and excited to see how their partnership on the left will be. Cole and Hazard on the left is decent but imo isnt the best since a peaked Cole rarely offers much in attack. Plus for Azpi and Hazard, Azpi rarely gets forward often. and he's not a Left footer.

Cant wait to see Luis-----Hazard since we know Luis loves to venture forward and he's has a great leftie!
idk if this was posted before, Drogzilla full interview

Chelsea B vs Chelsea A tomorrow
+1
?? what do you mean
Vitesse has been considered Chelsea B because half our loanees go there mate.
I wonder how Matt is taking the recent Southampton fire sale.
I feel for their fans. Not only about even losing players, but it seems the club is also getting sold and the money they got won't be reinvested.
Yup, crazy. Check out this tweet by Koeman, their new manager Lool

https://twitter.com/Koeman1963/status/493689458458644480/photo/1
So many rumors about Lukaku every single day - Wolfsburg, Juve, Monaco, Real, Everton, Liverpool ffs.

Such a shame if he does leave -understandable- but still sucks to be left with Drogba and Torres as backup.
we will -not- win the league with those two as back up. Either that or we'll have to pick our battles, we won't be able to fight in all fronts. Costa please don't ever get injured
Yeah exactly, it's crazy Mourinho looks likely to do this. Torres is the biggest donkey striker at any top club, and Drogba is too old to make a major impact - it's Costa or bust if we go into the season with those 3.
it's not a transfer window without cfc making some weird decision
+1
We were very close to winning the league without Costa, im sure we will be fine even if it means Torres or the Drog have fill in a couple games
+1
and City won the league with their 3rd choice striker. That's the difference. If Costa gets injured we are done lol

I would've liked a decent back up for Costa so we can seriously compete in various competitions. At the peak of the season we'll be playing 2-3 games every week.
+1
I wish Romelu was reading what you just wrote Ethio. He could have been the difference last year. If he thinks he's better than Costa he should be showing it in pre-season training. He has proven he's good, but not the best. He needs mentoring and the best competition.

There's definitely more going on behind the scene than we know. At 21 Big Rom has a whole decade to build on what he is now. He's years ahead of where Drogba was at 21. But does he have the same drive as Didier? This is his chance to learn from it all or go out on his own whim.
+1
I'm sorry but I still stand on the same place with Lukaku as I did before the season ended. At 21 years old he feels as though he 'deserves' the starting spot at CFC..AND he doesn't want significant competition. Are we forgetting that this world cup Lukaku was benched to Origi?!!? (No offense to Origi or Lpool of course, he's a brilliant player but not many saw that coming). If Benteke was not injured Lukaku might not have seen more than a few minutes on the pitch.

He has the talent and the physical attributes, but he is by no means a be all end all. If he wants to go play at everton, go play for them. I don't want anyone playing for the team I love and support that doesn't want to be there.

Mou has proved over the course of his entire career that if you are good enough and better than the person in your position for the job he wants done, he will play you. Look at Varane when he was at Real etc.

Lukaku sees Torres as a threat? Lukaku sees a 36 y/o player/coach in Drogba as a threat? Lukaku sees a striker with one break out year in Spain as a threat?..c'mon bro. If you're good enough you will earn your spot. Stay or go if you want. But I for one will NOT be sad at him leaving if that is his decision. No one is bigger than the club...and def not no 21 y/o who ran away last year at the sight of BA, Torres, and Eto'o. He says he wants a chance, but has not stuck around to earn it. The loan last year was not CFC's request. A sanction to sell or loan this time around is not CFC's request.
+1
When will you guys realize its not Torres, Drogba, Ba, Eto, Costa etc. he has a problem with, it's Mourinho

Drogba is a good replacement for Ba, but him or even Torres as a second ST option? Nope, this will be one of Mourinho's worst and most dumbfound decisions ever if he sells Lukaku and doesn't get another CF, this will go right alongside his wonderful tug of war series idea between Courtois and Cech. `
+1
@bluff things don't work in real life as they do in fifa14. If Cech specifically said he doesn't want to leave, than mourinho and the club can't do anything about it.
Same situation with Lukaku. What problem does he have with mourinho?? You're looking at it the wrong way. If lukaku comes up to the manager and says "im not happy playing as second option" then what the f can mourinho or the club do?
has the belgium boys returned yet
in terms of preparation of next season i wont compare with squad in EPL - I would ask are we capable of taking on Madrid, Barca or Bayern ? answer is on paper they are much stronger - we need one more quality striker to be at par wwith those clubs.
On paper they are all stronger. But I think chelsea could beat bayern and barca.
Barca because their defence is useless.
And bayern because pep isnt playin players in proper positions makin them weaker team overall.
I don't think anyone can touch madrid next season. They're the best team I've ever seen on paper. I feel for the defenders. There is no way teams will be able to deal with bale, ronaldo, hamez, to name a few...their defense is also solid.
+3
exactly my point - we are not complete squad yet to regin - we need one more world class striker and one more Holding / controlling mf Modric / Khedira -

or we need Ramires to be possesed by Pirlo!!
I wouldn't be too worried bcos as we all know by now matches are not won on paper. Its an honour to be mentioned among that group in the first place so and we'll take it from there bcos for all I care what our team may lack in personel/quality Mou's know how and winning mentality plus his antics will certainly make up for it.
Moreover we fear no team we have played against the best teams in the last decade including Bayern and Barca and come out tops even though they had better quality players in their ranks.
We go into this season with no fear...bring it on!!
+2
Keep in mind, we did make it to the semis without Matic, Fabregas, Courtois, Costa and Luis. And we plucked 2 key players that made it to the final and helped win la liga. Along with the recall of Courtois. We've upgraded at almost every position. Having Cech injured didn't help either. Other than losing to Athletico we did not lose to a top 4 team in England. With the players afformentioned we are stronger as well.

Having Jose is also a huge advantage. His squad preparation and in game tactics and adjustments give us the edge over most other managers. I'm not worried at all. If we can just hold on to Romelu I think we'll at least make the semis if not go further.
+4
Bayern have the best GK
Chelsea have the best Defence
Madrid have the best Midfield
Barca have the best Attack


In my case, Madrid have CR7, Bale, and James in a 5man midfield lol, and barca with the front 3 of south americans
+1
I would consider us underdogs against them all. I can see us beating Madrid and Barca. Mou knows them all too well. But Bayern will probably be the one that is the biggest test, especially with lemonydowzzkiii now in there to give them an end product. But then again, Mou knows Pep all too well too.

It's pretty comforting having Jose leading the charge.
Courtois > Neur in my honest opinion.

I think Barca is in decline, and even though they got Suarez, they aren't and won't be as strong as they were a couple of years ago.
Personally, I think Bayern and Real are the two best teams in the world. They are stacked in pretty much every position.

Chelsea isn't far behind though.
As Atletico Madrid showed us last season, despite Barca and Real Madrid having the best players they were able to win La Liga and were moments away from winning the champions league. it doesnt matter how teams look on paper. i think we could compete against any team in the world
@Badge, @Badge, @Badge....

Neuer > De Gea > Courtois
"Chelsea is seen as a ‘graveyard’ for young talent. But at the moment, officially in the first-team squad, we have Andreas Christiansen, Nathan Ake, probably Baker, because I want to have one more English player.

“So we are going to have in the first-team squad three players coming from the academy.

“Of course, Baker, Brown, Solanke and Boga cannot all be in my squad because I cannot have 30. But these four are going to work with us all season.

Solid quotes from the boss on the youth players this upcoming season. Hopefully some of these guys make it. Most talented group of youngsters we've had in Abramovich era imo.
+6
It is true that they are good players who deserve the promotion to the senior team, and I'm sure they'll do great for the club. I've been very impressed with Ake and Baker, especially Baker, you guys got an amazingly talented player in him.

But, it seems to me like Mourinho is only putting up their names on the roster to fill the home-grown quota as per FFP.
+1
Whatever the reason is, if they are good enough or better than some of the players, I'm sure we will see a lot of them playing.
With all due respect putting youth team players in your squad to fill out your homegrown quota doesn't mean you're committed to youth.

Having the courage to play them and stick by them does.
+6
I'm not suggesting there's going to be some full blown youth revolution where Mou fields 11 English 17 y/o, I know it is in all likelihood, unsubstantial and just sweet talk - BUT at least they have a chance to play,by training with the first team and they are more likely to impress, if they play well then even Mourinho can't deny them the right to play.

TL;DR: Better than nothing.
+3
Mourinho stated when he came back that he'd like to have a few academy players in the team, this is not surprising. I'm a fan of Christensen and Ake has also looked impressive, but we are all excited by Baker, we'll most likely see them in some FA cup and COC cup games
Mou did mention in his first press conference on his return last season that Chelsea is taking a new path and that the club is looking to integrate youth from the academy into the first team as one of the tasks of his second coming. If it was just a matter of English home grown stuff then we would have kept Cole and signed Shaw plus giving Lamps another year instead of bringing in Luis anda rreturning Drogba who are not home grown.
Baker, Ake and Christensen are not just being used bcos of home grown balderdash but for genuine interest in developing their football credentials under Mou.

Edit: well put bluff just seen u posted similar stuff already.


I think our club is moving in the direction we have always been hoping for and we deserve credit.
If a young player is good enough, he will play. There's no point playing young players for the heck of it.
Some Manchester city fans are really hilarious with their questions to Jesus Navas (#AskJesus)
- People are saying you cleansed leprosy, but why you did not bother to help Tevez?
- How does it feel playing against Moses in the Premier League?
+5
Best one for me: How is it that you walk on water, but dive on grass? xD
+16
If you can turn water into wine then can you turn Fellaini into a footballer please? #askjesus
#AskJesus do you think the hashtag should maybe have been #AskNavas?
