Good luck to Danny Drinkwater at Reading.

I assume this will be his last loan. Funny thing is, when he played against Bournemouth in pre-season he had a very good game.




30 Aug 2021 17:17:25
Bakayoko to Milan being reported as a loan with an OBLIGATION to buy.

God, I would hate to negotiate with that lady!


1.) 30 Aug 2021 18:09:34
And it can as high as 20m€! Brilliant work by Marina.

2.) 30 Aug 2021 18:37:53
Got some negotiating to do getting players in now. I’m hoping with Saul wanting assurances cech gets his wish and we get camavinga, I saw a comment along time ago about tchoumeni camavinga and another about there attitude, not sure what player it was who had bad attitude or concerns over attitude,

3.) 30 Aug 2021 20:08:07
I know it’s looking unlikely Matt but I think we will get both our targets tomorrow.

Wishful thinking perhaps!



20 Aug 2021 17:54:39
One outlet is suggesting we have agreed a fee with Barcelona for Moriba.




13 Aug 2021 22:19:29
Noises tonight that Michy may well be on his way to Besiktas.

If true, good luck to the lad.


1.) 14 Aug 2021 09:15:40
Tammy getting closer to Roma as well.
We need to clear out lots of players.

2.) 14 Aug 2021 09:38:22
We sure do Ashk but I think someone said we have moved on 23 players already. The management have been working hard.

3.) 14 Aug 2021 12:00:18
Yes Tom it has been a really good work by Marina and her team. There is a buy back clause for Tammy as well.
Kudos to Chelsea for finding good business.

4.) 14 Aug 2021 12:13:14
I think my only issue with this, Tammy leaving and Broja going on loan is we now have just one recognised striker for the season. If big rom has any lengthy spell out the side we’re back to Timo and Kai up top. Which is fine but it got us 4th last year, we want that top spot.

I’d have kept one of them, probably the young lad as back up. I know it’s about his development etc. but he’ll probably learn more being around big rom than he will fighting relegation with the Saints.

Anyway, I’m not one to be negative on here, squad is looking well balanced and I’m optimistic about what we can achieve this season.

Ps. If Marina wants to put the cherry on top of the cake and get us a DM, the lad Bissouma from Brighton is super talented ;)

5.) 14 Aug 2021 19:42:11
If only we could get rid of Drinkwater.

6.) 14 Aug 2021 23:26:08
Moaning Minnie Klopp going on about how Chelsea etc can afford to spend money on transfers: it’s quite simple we are selling and loaning out players. The fact that nobody wants to buy Liverpool‘a second string players is his problem.



03 Jul 2021 21:10:36
Come on Harry get me that hat trick.


1.) 03 Jul 2021 21:36:09
Would have been some goal but the keeper and now Southgate deny me a tasty return.

On the playing front, I’m disappointed he didn’t bring Chilwell on. That may be his last chance for some mins.

2.) 03 Jul 2021 22:43:45
Agreed TomB - why bring Trippier on at that scoreline when he needed to give Chilwell some minutes?

3.) 04 Jul 2021 05:09:52
i think SG doesn't need to give Chilly any minutes . he knows who he'd play . so its pointless bring on Chilly. 2 more games to go :)

4.) 04 Jul 2021 10:30:35
I’m obviously just a sentimental old fool but I think it wouldn’t have hurt to put any player with zero mins so far onto the pitch when you are 4-0 up.

In Chilly’s case it was made slightly worse by bringing on a RB.

I’m told that GS made some post match comments about how he regrets some players not getting mins.

They are awful but we put up a sparking performance.




21 Oct 2021 12:32:33
Looks like our game against Newcastle will be the first game with their new manager!

That always makes a game interesting.


1.) 21 Oct 2021 12:44:50
About right ain’t it, both strikers injured then play a rejuvenated Newcastle away,

2.) 21 Oct 2021 23:16:08
sometimes the first game for a new manager is a reality check on what a hard job he will have.



17 Oct 2021 17:06:59
Is anyone else struggling to differentiate between these two kits on TV?


1.) 17 Oct 2021 17:49:35
Me too Tom. Spuds' kit is horrendous.



16 Oct 2021 19:28:31
I'm sure that someone will say "that's what good teams do" but let's be honest it was desperate stuff but a big win.

Mendy obviously MOM but a big shout out for Chilly who was also excellent along with Christensen.

Chalaboa and Sarr are work in progress but didn't let anyone down.

Some will say we lost control when Kovacic came off but the writing was already on the wall once they decided to be more direct.



1.) 16 Oct 2021 19:46:05
To be honest that’s the only way they play, direct football (I got no problem with that btw) we controlled 60% of the game so they couldn’t do that but when we lost that extra man in midfield it became easier for them to play long.

Saw their game against Liverpool and to be honest I think these 3 points would prove to be massive, can see a lot of our rivals dropping points there. Brentford might just be the next Stoke city.

{Ed014's Note - please not another Stoke City! ?

2.) 16 Oct 2021 20:21:10
Unfortunately Ed, it might just be that! Which to be fair is a good thing for the league as I do like when the so called “lesser teams” dog it out against the “bigger boys” hate to see a game where one team rolls over so I’d keep an eye on Brentford games against the top 6 .

{Ed014's Note - they’re a really well run club mate so I don’t mind them at all.

Like you say they will turn over a few that won’t expect it.



16 Oct 2021 18:24:10
Strange half.

We have been the better team but they have caused on problems from set plays.

Our back three has generally played well. One small thing Sarr looks such a week passer of a ball.

RLC showing he can boss this sort of game and he can also carry the ball and that's a great attribute.

I'm beginning to feel sorry for Lukaku. It's as if we haven't got a clue how to play to his strengths.

Chilly the goal machine!


1.) 16 Oct 2021 18:55:12
If cesc was in this team we’d be laughing, so many good runs and breaking between the lines but zero end product from midfield.

I agree Strasbourg, TT would be mad to go to a back four with the players we currently have.

Ashk, we have one of the strongest squads in Europe. I don’t think we have over achieved, I think we under achieved in the League last season an DM for that Lamps has to his share of responsibility.

We also didn’t perform in the cup final to a standard I would have expected from our squad.

This year we have got more points than most fans would have expected but I don’t think we have performed to our maximum.

It’s the next five league games that will help shape our season. I expect TT to get a lot more out of our squad and I think he will.

Maybe dadubliner but until it happens I’m not that bothered about him.

Livramento, no longer our player, so not really that fussed.

On the other hand Broja looks a decent prospect and I hope he continues to play well and find the back of the net ready to return next season.

I care because I want him to be successful for us and he is our player for at least a season.

I don’t care about his form at AM and I hope he gets mins in the games for us that are are coming thick and fast.

With Saul it’s early days and I still think there is time for him to make a significant contribution.

We are often far to quick to dismiss players!

Just maybe, him being in the squad is making every other midfield player lift his game!

He can impress us in midweek.
