How exciting 😞.

14 Aug 2017 15:10:05
Would be a good signing in my eyes. Versatile, good engine when fit, pace. Something to prove?

But man I think I need a break from this site. Too much negative crap around because we're not signing Messi, Ronaldo etc. Get a grip lads.

14 Aug 2017 15:56:36
You're the main one adam.

14 Aug 2017 16:10:23
What being negative? Where exactly?

14 Aug 2017 16:17:04
Prem champions signing player who arsenal have let go into last season isn't very exciting. Young English versitile so yeah happy enough for deal but not really exciting. or like a Sandro or van dijk,

14 Aug 2017 16:22:26
Think you mean Matt Martin is the main one.

I'm not the person getting my knickers in twist because we aren't signing the biggest of names. Or because we lost our first game of the season.

But some people just get depressed over it. It's bloody football at the end of the day.

how is this rubbish still going round the mill, wenger started him on the weekend and they would rather let his contract run down than sell to us especially at 35 mill, which in this market for a homegrown player is peanuts. If the 'transfer committee' seriously think they have a chance of getting this done then they need to be replaced by someone with tiny bit of logic. Sick of Emmenalo the blokes is clueless.

CFCAdam. No one on here expects us to be signing Ronaldo or Messi. What we're frustrated about is not signing players (even just squad players) where we clearly need them, especially in midfield. And letting Matic go before we have a replacement (with Bakayoko not yet fit) was just a dumb decision by the club overall. We could have held onto one of our youngsters (loftus cheek, baker) to cover that position until we signed someone at least. That's how I see things anyway.

14 Aug 2017 18:37:45
35m is far too much for a player in the last year of his contract who will never be anything more than a decent utility player capable of filling in when required.

14 Aug 2017 18:48:39
Yet we let Petr Cech go to them?

Let's see where AOC is playing football in September.

14 Aug 2017 19:47:54
The likes of Chamberlain, Drinkwater and Barkley will not make us progress. We'll get torn apart in the champions league with our current wing backs. Desperately need amy two of Cancelo, Aurier, Alex Sandro or Rose. Then maybe we could sign Van Dijk and put Luiz CM.

14 Aug 2017 20:54:47
Who sells a first team player to a direct rival. That's just pure common sense.

14 Aug 2017 21:00:36
Didn't Leicester do quite well in the Champs League too and wasn't a certain Danny Drinkwater involved in that run too? Or am i missing the point here?

Barkley - I very much doubt will happen. Ed002 seemed to confirm the same thing.

Chamberlain - Good player in my eyes. Not had a proper run in the Arsenal team with injuries, but when he has played i thought he did ok. Covers a lot of positions too, which is good for us.

Do people expect us to actually challenge for the Champions League? Id be happy to get to the quarters to be honest. Then progress the year after.

Ed002 has already said that we are in talks over Cancelo and Sandro. And club are still confident that something can be agreed with them both.

Why would you put Luiz in the midfield?

14 Aug 2017 21:22:02
I'm in agreement with bits of all the above posts.
I do think our club could have managed the timing of buying and selling players in a more cohesive way.
Selling players before you have replacements seems niaev but I guess this things don't always happen in a perfect order!
I think Conte can make the Ox a quality wing back in the same way he has with Moses!
I'm not totally convinced we need another CB but if we do go in for one I do like the look of VVD
We do need cover at LWB I would love the lad from Juve but that seems a remote possibility.
Centre Mid is a must have and while I'm not a massive fan of Drinkwater I can see the logic in signing him but I would test PSG and put in a massive bid for Varrati.

{Ed002's Note - Who is this you are talking about? Costa, Matip, Terry, Begovic, Ake?}

14 Aug 2017 23:04:01
In a perfect transfer world we wouldn't have let Ake go before signing another LWB. We wouldn't have sold Chalaboa and Matic without getting players in the door first albeit Bakayoko was in before Matic left.
The transfer world doesn't work in a perfect for Chelsea way, so we have to work with what we've got in to date!

{Ed002's Note - Ake was not a LWB. Kenedy was and sorted his own exit out. Chalobah insisted he should leave - he was a bit part player who the club wanted to keep but would not give guarantees to.}

14 Aug 2017 23:14:44
As I say it's not perfect.

15 Aug 2017 09:37:20
TomB, I agree to your post; From the Community Shield game to the end of the transfer window is atleast 3 EPL fixtures and 1 community shield fixture, 4 games- that's alot.

I know Man-United will wait till the end of the transfer window knowing they will get Matic (just like we might wait to get Ox Chamberlain) cos they don't have much of a choice ( limited good available options in the market) Chelsea could have used Matic (for Arsenal, Burnley, Tottenham and Leceister games) till another midfielder joins before letting him go; OR done it with Chalobah if the coach has certain concerns about Matic not being in his future plans.

I guess we put ourself in a difficult situation and quickly gave ManU the early advantage.

Fingers crossed obinna!
I find the hyper ventilating of some media sources and in particular the scouser pundits the thing that makes me so angry!
All this Conte sacked, Conte to blame for the Costa situation, Conte has fallen out with the board really dibillatating. I know these guys have a job to do but it is very lazy journalism.

15 Aug 2017 12:36:08
Haha don't start on me I'm not negative I'm a realist, were in a disaster and conte will be gone soon and transfer window has been embassassing. we are still going to win the champions league 😉.

15 Aug 2017 14:23:19
No disaster Matt just a slightly muddled transition.
Keep your chins up!

15 Aug 2017 14:47:27
tomB it's been a disaster, not just with players in or out but also these players are yet to be bought in and work and get used to conte and his style . that's a huge problem, despite Adam ( 🤡) thinking I'm negative and want messi ronaldo blah blah blah it's down to organisation and preparation,

15 Aug 2017 19:53:07
Who cares if you or anyone else is negative!
Football draws on all the emotions, that's why it's such a fantastic game!
The transfer window isn't perfect and I'm sure the club, if it could, might well have wanted things to work out differently but such is life!
Let's hope for a good result at the weekend.
