Just wanna know your thought on KDB. Was Mou right to sell him? Would he make it at City?
Its easy to say he was wrong in retrospect i guess...

Yea he'll do well cant see why he wouldn't
Mou was right to sell him as I dont believe any club should keep a player against his will. Infact only a small club will force a player to stay when they have made it clear they want to leave. United sold Ronaldo and it did not stop United winning trophies.

Wanted to know too, what was the reason Mou sold him at the first place.
According to Mou himself, KdB asked to speak with Mou about his role in the team after just one game of not being selected.

Notable:
-“That is unfair because I wanted to keep him,” said the Portuguese. “And he told me it was not in his personality to be competing for a position in the team. He needed a team where he knows he can play every game. He needs to know that he is important."
-"Mourinho added: “He didn’t tell me he couldn’t handle the pressure. He told me he wanted to play every weekend. I told him this is Chelsea, you are very young, you have Eden Hazard, you have Mata, you have Willian, you have Schürrle, and I cannot promise you that."
It depends on where he plays at City. He's not as good at RW as he is behind the striker.

He left Chelsea for the same reasons as Mata. Mou wanted Oscar to play as #10 and others to fight for the right wing spot. We had 6 AM's at the time so they never had many chances really.
To be honest, it came down to work rate, attitude, and performances when given the chance. A lot of people think he wasn't given a proper shout, but he started the first two or three games games of the season 2 years ago. He didn't impress in the game against united (the second of those two games I think), after scoring against hull. I think he played against Aston Villa but I don't remember, which if he did, may forget justify my point.

He went invisible against united, and was dropped. In each of his other opportunity's ( I believe one was against swindon in the capital one cup) he was piss poor. He didn't look fit and didn't look interested. Then he asked to leave and we obliged when Wolfsburg came calling.

The world is asking is this question only because KdB has been sold for £54 million. That really means nothing as price and performance are two different things.

People should ask these questions ONLY if KdB really proves his worth when he comes back. Even then I see a perfectly good reason to sell him then. No matter how good of a potential a player has he has to fight for the place.
Oh boy, getting ready to see alot of this topic when he starts playing good for City
Cant wait to have Oscar back in the starting lineup the thought of him,Pedro and Costa pressing from the front has me drooling.
Our attack isn't the same without Oscar
Will Oscar be fit for tomorrow?
If stones is worth 40 million I'm probably worth at least 1 or 2 million as a footballer in this market

Apparently we made an offer for Zhang Lingpeng. A player from Guangzhou Evergrande whom Marcello Lippi labelled as the 'the best Chinese player in the Chinese Superleague' lol.

Purslow you cheeky bugger.
But he can't secure a work permit so he's immediately loaned back out...
Not part of the plan for this year and still doesn't divert our attention from Stones and Pogba.

Mourinho: "I don't speak about other players. If we get one more player before the end of the transfer window, good. If not, that's okay."

Refuses to comment on Jon(lol) Stones and Paul Pogba.

Everton and Juve wont sell...atleast not now with 3 days to go. So its almost certain that no more business
Happy Birthday Dave
Make sure no one goes past you

When we play CP, it will be Mourinho's 100 match at SB in the PL
So far we only lost one

Do we need 1 more striker? Charlie Austin?
http://www.telegraph.co.uk/sport/football/teams/chelsea/11829874/Chelsea-transfer-news-and-rumours-Blues-now-lead-the-race-for-Charlie-Austins-signature.html
Source is Daily Express, so no we won't get him. Maybe if Remy leaves.
I wish Remy would come in over falcao
^That will end up happening if we remain on the same track with Ivanovic on the right and Azpi on the left. Falcao needs aerial service and neither of our starting FB's are crossing with any accuracy. Remy can play out wide and suits the position better ATM, that is at least until we utilize a FB that puts in accurate crosses. Falcao just doesn't have the legs to anymore to defend in our own box and run the length of the pitch to receive a cross in time. Several times already I've noticed Hazard having to wait for players to get in position and by the time they are the defense has set up shop. The run Costa made to score v WBA is what we need more of.

Austin isn't a bad option. He's got a cannon for a leg and one of the quickest releases I've seen in the PL. He's not afraid to have a shot from range either as we saw last year with him scoring several screamers. He's a fighter, goes at CB's and can play with his back to them. Very suited to Jose's style. We should have moved for Austin before ever thinking about Falcao imo.
LOL Guys. One more reason to get Pogba in the next 5 days. We don't want to face him in the CL. Weaken Juventus. Use the financial power. Crush em!

Win Win Situation?
It is a balance. Strengthens Chelsea but I actually like that. Would be fair to say Chelsea need a strong player in the CM and Pogba is just that and much more. Also, seeing him play every week is a HUGE bonus for me.

Also, I am hoping for City to learn the ropes in Europe this time around. Juve is going to be strong no matter what. Them Italian teams are resilient as hell. No Pogba would mean a lot.
no vida, tevez, pirlo either

People are speculating that Stones let the goal in on purpose
I would need to see multiple angles to really know just how much he "jumped over" the ball. The angle could be a bit deceiving. Also, he may have been trying to avoid an odd deflection and that that Howard had it covered.
Poor accusation. No footballer would do that on purpose. Lol I think people have nothing better to do really.

Stones was very good against City. He is going to a big 4/5 English team for sure in the next year or two. Chelsea will do well to get him first.
