what is happening
this is the craziest opener I can remember.
Chelsea missing Hazard, Pedro, Bakayoko, and Moses for their opener tomorrow. Pretty much fucked.
I'M HAVING A FUCKING HEART ATTACK IS WHAT'S HAPPENING
Please. You're playing Burnley. Your youth team costs more than their starting XI. You'll be fine.
Chelsea fans saying they're fucked. It's like Conte whinging in the press that they have no money to spend
You can call yourself fucked when you've sold your starting right back to City, your second choice right back gets fucked in a pre-season friendly, and now we have no-one, whilst making ZERO signings in the off-season, and then having Rose blast the team in the press.
So not optimistic for the coming season. I can just tell that somebody important (Kane/Alli/Eriksen) is going to get crocked for a long time early on, we'll sign some absolute no-names from Netherlands or France who are awful (cough N'jie, Janssen, N'koudou), whilst we've seemingly missed out on all our transfer targets whose costs looked reasonable (Barkley, Perreira, Foyth)
Did I make a comparison to the entire league or the whole season? No.
Chelsea's net spend is only £15M this season though, so let's not act like they have blown the bank like the Manchester clubs (over £140M each). Tottenham is obviously pocketing their £72M gain to help pay down the stadium at the cost of on field results. I'd expect them to act a bit like Arsenal have been over the next few years.
"Oh they will be fine" you guys said. Unusual lineup followed up with poor performances, and this is what you get.
lol chelski, go rooney!
blow meeeeeeee jonjooooooooo
KYLE WALKER-PETERS >>>> KYLE WALKER
Didn't really expect you guys to go down to 9 men. You would've been fine without that.
apparently Chelsea wants Oxlade Chamberlain now, so as always, last laugh for you guys.
Oh great, looks like we're going to be signing the homophobic Gooner Aurier. How fucking delightful.
apparently Inter and Juve also want him, so don't worry, you won't end up with him.
WHO NEEDS EM
ffs we just need SOMEONE. like i swear to god im sick of being linked to thousands of players and then none materializing. it seems that this week its Davinson Sanchez, Pape Cheikh Diop and Aurier. Next week it'll be a bunch of other crap, and then we just end up panic buying someone late on (like fucking Sissoko). As i think a lot of people know, our first XI plays as well as arguably any other team in the Prem, but our bench prospects are just simply woeful. if anyone gets injured we're immediately 100% weaker. Lamela is still dead, and then you're already looking at Winks (who i love, but he's not elite yet) and Edwards/Janssen. if we have any hope of trying to mount a campaign on multiple fronts (integral bc i dont see us as league winners, so targeting a domestic cup is vital, along with CL commitments)
im so tempted to get a new away kit with Sissoko on, purely for the banter. maybe when theyre half price at the end of the season.
A lot of money, but I don't blame Swansea for getting it at all.
If it's really a £45m fee, I don't blame them at all, but it's probably a move that pushes them into the relegation zone if they don't use that money to reinvest in some younger talent.
Amazing free kick goal from Alonso.
Alonso the hero with the late goal to win it.
Alonso should be in prison.
