    Also, torres is likely to be banned for 4 games.
    Pretty stupid because if the referee had seen the initial incident, he would only have been banned for 3 games. So he is essentially getting an extra game ban because of a referee mistake not to send him off earlier.

    Furthermore, if they are taking retrospective action with regards to that incident, why don't they look at what Torres was sent off for and get rid of that one game ban and stick with the 3 game ban for "violent conduct".

    Schurrle's performances (except in the Super Cup) have disappointed me more than De Bruyne's have, and yet Jose keeps giving him considerable game time. Can see KDB asking to go out on loan come January

    Some (not entirely reliable) sources are actually predicting a full transfer in January, given that he wasn't even included in the Champions League team. Which probably would make sense for him at this point in his career: he needs gametime, and he's unlikely to get a great deal of it in a team that plays what is close to a 4-4-1-1 with six (?) not-too-old players competing for the three spots he can play in (and this is not even counting van Ginkel, who will hopefully be good to play sooner rather than later).

    He is included in the CL team, the only player who isn't is Essien, and van Ginkel is a CM so I don't see what that has to do with KDB's playing time.

    Mourinho said in the pre-match press conference before he walked out that De Bruyne hadn't impressed him in training nor against Swindon. What's the point in him travelling to Romania if he's not going to play? It's not uncommon for players to remain at the club in such situations, but as with seemingly everything to do with Chelsea the press sensationalise and ill informed people lap it up. :rolleyes:

    Calling it now - we're going to break De Bruyne, and will be fully deserving of the criticism directed at us for damaging young prospects.

    Worst piece of business = buying Willian and Schurrle, and saturating the team.

    Lol it's such a bizarre situation. If he had started in one of the 1st two games I doubt he'd have requested a loan but he went from starting pretty much every pre season game to being a sub in the 75th min.

    Yeah I think it was 3-4. More likely 3 but if it's 4 then that's a bit too far.


    (Original post by 9MmBulletz)
    Yeah I agree we need a CM/CDM. Should've gone for Kondogbia, Hamsik (reasonable chance of landing him in the summer), Vidal
    to name a few. I'm pretty sure Jose didn't want to bring in Willian because we sure as hell don't need him.

    Add to that, we need another striker unless Mourinho (or whoever is in charge next year knowing RA) has faith in Lukaku
    Wonder if we'll buy Sturridge back. We'll probably have to pay 30m but I wouldn't mind it. Lukaku/Sturridge/Torres is really good tbh. But typical of Chelsea to do something like this...

    Also, believe it or not, Vidal has a 100m release clause I think. As crazy as we are with transfers I don't think we'll be paying that much! Kondogbia would've been relatively cheap but he went to Monaco .

    *Sigh*. Not been great for us with regards to transfers huh.

    He will be another Sturridge situation. Pure waste of talent. Jose will bring him back pre-season, he will score another 10 goals then when the season starts again he will be benched and a week later loaned.
    What an idiotic move. Lukaku looks set to get another 15 goals atleast this season.

    If he does really well this season I doubt he'll be loaned he'd probably just ask to leave permanently if he still doesn't get games. I imagine a few clubs would have him as well

    Battle for top 4 - Spurs/Arsenal/Liverpool/Everton/Man City/Chelsea and Utd. Looking ever so likely that 1 of the latter 3 are bound to miss out.
    Without injuries Everton look the most complete team in the league in all positions.
    Ross Barkley will be the next big thing, looking better than Wilshere already when he was 19.

    100 million? LOL

    We should definitely get Hamsik who looks like a perfect replacement forr Lampard. Got a very good shot on him and was the top assist man last year in Italy. Would cost 35-40 million I guess. We should sell one of our AM/ Wingers and bring him in so the outlay on Hamsik is only around 20-25 million.

    Other midfielders we could look at are Strootman,Pogba (unlikely to leave though) to name a few. Heck, if Barkley has a good season I see no reason why not to poach him for Merseyside.

    Van Ginkel can be our defensive midfielder, and with Lukaku hopefully having a good season, we slot him back in and possibly get Sturridge back and offload one of Torres or Ba, while Eto'o's contract runs out.

    Manchester United are going to snap up Barkley in a heartbeat by January/June.
