Hi all, long time reader of the site. Just thought I'd throw my 2 cents in now the window has closed and after initial disappointment, I've taken stock of the squad.

GK; Swapped a premier league experienced keeper with another and kept Courtois, still very strong here.

DEF: Lost Terry, Ake and sent Zouma on loan (who is looking really strong), replaced them with Rudiger and Christensen both of which have looked more than capable and I would say upgrades on top of what was an already strong core of Dave, Luiz and Cahill.

WB: Added Zappacosta to compete with Moses, Alonso is just getting better so that can only be a plus. Have Kennedy and possibly Baba (who I think will be excellent WB) as well Pedro and Willian if required. Could have done with another player here but all in all solid.

MID: Lost Matic and Chalobah, added Bakayoko and Drinkwater, both of which could be argued as upgrades on who they're replacing, although time will tell. Combine this with IMO the best out and out centre midfielder in the EPL Kante and the best passer in the league Fab and we are looking pretty good.

ATT: Losing Costa and have added Morata who at this stage is still finding his feet but has all the indications that he will be a worthy replacement plus he's a better fit for the team and younger. Batshuayi as depth has flattered to deceive but with get more chances. The 4 of Hazard, Pedro, Willian and Musonda are up there with the best in the league.

Combine this with the fact that most of our rivals all missed out on their own key targets; City: Sanchez, United: Perisic, Liverpool: Van Dijk, Arsenal: Lemar and Spurs at Wembley.

Throw in the Conte factor and I'm quietly optimistic with how the season will play out!

Very good post Ngolos. Every point has been well thought through and positive.
The Baba point is very interesting and I like you believe Conte can make him into a first class wing back.
Just depends if he can get match fit before the next transfer window.
If he can prove himself to Conte it could save the club a lot of money!

Yes, everything is shiny. Lukaku went to United, Llorente went to Spurs, Ox went to
Liverpool, Barkley said he wanted to talk to Spurs, several others snubbed you. You can kid yourselves all you want but something is not right at Chelsea right now. You have replaced layers that left, some may be better, some may not be, I think you'll finish 3rd and Conte's head will explode some time in March.

I respect your opinion but unfortunately for you, you've caught the dreaded Jose Utd Deluded Arse Syndrome. Commonly known as JUDAS.
There is no known cure but I'm sure your local doctor in Surrey can prescribe something to ease your pain!

Neither Lukaku nor Llorente rejected us, I'm not sure what you're on about mate, but hey what ever makes you sleep better tonight.

01 Sep 2017 21:26:19
Well to be fair, it's no secret Lukaku wanted the Chelsea move, but we weren't interested. Llorente wanted to work with Conte again, but our bid wasn't accepted by Swansea so he went to Spurs. Don't believe everything the media tells you.

Alright AJH,
Bless you mate, we've all been there with Jose tinted specs on. We all know MUFC will improve on 6th from last season, although do you have back up for that dynamic midfield?
CFC however will struggle to improve on last season in the prem as we were champions! Regarding the extra 8 games we will have to play in the champions league compared to last year. well to be fair, if injuries are kept to a minimum. I think we will manage ok.
I personally think we will finish above you in the league.

Ajh what is your problem
Why your obseession with cfc transfers
Lukaku no bid from chelsea he's a cfc fan tho lol
Llorente no bid from chelsea he's 34 cfc don't sign players over 30 no sell on value herm herm ibra
Ox wanted to play for boyhood club
Now do you want to talk about the players you were linked to by fake media bale didn't james rodriguez didn't happen perisic didn't happen aurier didn't happen morata didn't happen neymar guess what didn't happen even ronaldo was coming back guess what didn't happen
Deadline day you were even linked to sanchez you never guess what happened it didn't happen now
Trot along read your daily blind and stop pestering the top team in england
Manager. cfc reject twice but hey ho you continue to believe the crap you read in the daily brexit.
