Chelsea cash in on the £100m cast-offs as number of loanees playing away from Stamford Bridge reaches 26

https://twitter.com/MailSport/status/506733832079675392

How smart is this. I find this to be the best strategy possible. Get the players you don't need out on loan. If they come good and they have a place in the team you've got yourself starter for which you didn't have to overpay. And most importantly you didn't have to play him in your team until he finds his feet costing you games. On top of that you get a nice paycheck at the end of the month.

That's why Chelsea is rounding up all the talented youngsters. It costs them close to nothing to buy, they make you money, and at the end of the day you may also get a couple of quality players. I don't think that out of those 26 they can't find 2-3 players to play in the senior side. If you just can't use them you sell them for 28m apparently =))

This is management 101 gents delegating risk

Meanwhile we're selling all our youngsters for peanuts and some of them to our closest rivals.

People shouldn't start talking about identity and loyalty now because it's got nothing to do with it. We're just looking at the business side of things.

Comparing the two situations I can't help but thinking we've dropped the ball here.
James Ducker has confirmed that United have the first option to buy back Tom Lawrence who was sold to Leicester for £1M.
does utd spending put more pressure on LVG to succeed??
Yes, which will put pressure on LVG to make his team predisposed to winning, he'll put the pressure onto the players, which will make the players realize they'll be gone soon if not providing the goods. And they're the best so you'll get results or you'll get someone new.
That's how it worked for Fergie. See 1994/1995.

We all win
Ofcourse it puts more pressure on him since he's signed world class players. All I hope now is he either switches to a 4-3-3 or 4-3-2-1 in our next game against qpr.
"Ten out of ten for style and ambition, no more than six for substance. By splashing out on Radamel Falcao and Angel di Maria, United have pretty much bought a new plasma screen television, but forgotten to replace the broken lock on the door. Still no world-class centre-half or defensive midfielder, but there will be no shortage of entertainment."

Nice analogy there :D

@stret I think both are unproven in EPL that's why the media is sceptic. After a few games we will see. the same logic could have been applied for carvalho. all 3 played last season in "lower" leagues. vidal is not on the same level here. but yes I hope Blind and Rojo will prove them wrong :)
+1
I don't agree. I think Blind will surprise many as a DM, and Rojo looks a quality CB. They are not 'household names' but still quality signings. I also think Jones has been terrific so far this season, one of our best players. He and Rojo should hopefully make a good pair.

Sure we could still use one more top class CM and CB - although with no champions league this year I think we will be in fine nick. For one window the club has made a huge effort with regards to a much needed rebuild of the side. I think these many analogies circulating lose sight of the reality.

@Drde

Yes, but so would Carvalho or Gustavo or even Vidal. None are proven in the Prem. And the latter's knee injury would be even more cause for concern. Who else would we have gone for as a DM? Blind is an astute signing, because he knows LVG and should jump straight into the system. I'm giving the benefit of the doubt to the players and staff, and what LVG has done so far as opposed to get enticed by the media.

Man Utd identity is broken - Phelan

Interesting to see his opinion.

Falcao will bear the No.9 gents.

Bit obvious really but it does look pretty sweet. Feels like its been ages since someone has worn the No.9 lol...
He's a perfect no.9. Previously worn by Berba?

3 Shaw
5 Rojo
7 Di Maria
9 Falcao
15 Blind
21 Herrera
@come510 that sounds like a perfume
you got a million dollar idea right there
Memories of berba.
Finally we have players worthy of donning the number 7 and number 9 shirts.
Falcao is our new #9! I'm still in shock. Reflecting back on the window, a lot of the new signings still haven't quite sunk in. What a great summer. Who would have imagined at the beginning of the summer we would sign Di Maria and Falcao? Let alone Herrera, Shaw, Rojo and Blind. Excellent.

It's clear LVG's rebuilding process is well underway. We must now have one of the most terrifyingly good attacking lines in the world, let alone Europe. I think Blind as a DM will be huge for us. And Rojo at CB should make a big difference (alongside Jones, Shaw and Rafa hopefully). Onwards and upwards.
shame to cleverley...

his transfer saga is no different from his playing style...

apparently after villa/everton bid, the deal never moved forward... only sideways....
+1
*snaps!*
ba dum tiss
Yeah his wage demands are ridiculous and I think he was well aware Villa or Everton wouldn't pay it, he doesn't want to leave and I just cant be angry at him for that.

People need to understand the size and stature of our club, its not an easy place to walk away from unless you're going to Madrid or something, sure we finished mid table last season but are we by nature a mid table club? Are we heck...

Dropping down to Villa or Everton from Manchester United isn't easy, Villa will likely be a perennial mid table club forever unless they get a rich owner and Everton are always held back by their finances as well.

Given the lack of depth at CM I'm not particularly unhappy he stayed, he has shown quality he just needs to get it back, maybe getting so close to the exit door will reinvigorate him, its make or break for him now because this club is going to be going big places and I'm sure he wants to be a part of that.
Our defence sems not to attract any attention from LVG, getting quality strikers and midfielders without a good organised back line will destroy the entire effort of the strikers and even endanger the keeper. IMO
Got a feeling we might switch to a back 4 given the fact we loaned Michael Keane out last night.
Just wait when Rojo and shaw comes in, then see what happens.. and don't forget about Jones, he's still a top defender.

evilkagawa:

Mission complete! I steal instruction manual of Kagawa from office of Klopp. Only 6 minute left! QUICK GAAL, BUY BACK KAGAWAAAAA!
lol he's as funny as always


Btw, found three similarities between Park and Kagawa.

1. They're both known as lucky charm, never lost whenever they play

2. Once their lucky charm have been broken, they'll leave the following season

3. The season they're being sold, they'll feature in the pre-season and team poster
Both are asian ?

lol :P
Park was so much better than Kagawa tho, I don't know what happened to Kagawa :(
both are from Vietnam as well
@Theatreofdream Don't kid me
