He probably doesn't suit the league. But to do a 3 year loan is ridiculous. I believe there's a trigger if appearances are met, so it better be something like 10 appearances.

WOW!

2 of the shittiest deals ever:

1.Cuadrado joins Juventus on a 3year loan deal where they will pay you guys 4m pounds per year and shall have the option of signing him anytime for 20m pounds which ofcourse they wont do as they arent mugs like you,for they could just pay 12m and use him for three years and sign him on a free and to prevent him to go elsewhere not that he would after only playing in the Serie A and flopping in the epl,they coud just sing a precontract hat he would sign for them?

2.Why is the world crazy about David Luiz?Why did PSG buy him for 50m,why did they play him ahead of Marquinos for so long,why did they even attempt resist any bids for him and why the hell are you guys paying 32m + addons for him?Why not get Manolas for 40m or even just fuck it for i was expecting a worldclass defender signing from you guys,pretty underwhelming,you guys could have been champions with that..whats the point of repeatedly buying 20m+ lbs when you have a great player whos still not hit his prime like cesar azpilicueta there blocking their way,why not simply move him to where he started out at rb and play your costly lbs,rather than sticking with ivanovic?He should be the back up now.

I for one am glad you are getting luiz instead of manolas,koulbaily or that ac milan starlet and thank god you didnt come in for mustafi after all the dragging out we did,we managed to get extraordinary deals seeing what our rivals are doing and the current condition of the market.

Is Van Ginkel back?

With Kante and Matic,why not simply play Cesc ahead of Oscar behind Costa,he would be devastating there.

Juventus will pay €5m per season for Cuadrado but have an obligation to buy for €20-24m (less loan fees already paid) once he makes a set number of appearances which is likely a low number. As with all Juventus deals, the amount paid for the permanent transfer will be spread over three years.

This Alonso you've just shelled out on, he's not the one that was at Bolton a few seasons ago, is he?

Chelsea are looking totally beastly:

1.They already have been champions and know how to do it.

2.Costa has been the best player in the Premiership in the 11 opening games and his character,attitude are huge bonuses when it comes with such performances,it drives the team on.

3.Hazard is looking like the player who won the PFA player of the year and on current form consistently should be the best player in the league regardless of what others do.

4.The defence is 2nd best only to Tottenham.

5.You have nothing besides the FA Cup and Premiership to play for so squad holes can be gradually be filled in Jan till Summer.

6.After Cech,Terry,Cole,Lampard,Drogba you have the rise of new chavs to take the mantle in Courtois,Azpilicueta,Matic,Hazard and Costa who will be there for the next 5 years and are special enough that any team would want them if they could get them to play their best for them.

Congratulations Joel and of course Abrahimovich,he has been chopping and changing ever since he came here 12 years back but has been consistently irrevocably successful when compared to other choppers and changers like Liverpool,Manchester United recently and even Real Madrid until their double CL wins.

Not a bad article, but I think "not actually defending" is hyperbole. Yes, he is the free man and doesn't have a set man to mark, but he's still covering and intercepting, which clearly is defending.

I wouldn't say that at all. God knows if the latter two will even be here next summer, forget the five years.

Yes, we look very good at moment and the new formation is clearly working, but let's remember it has only been five games. Let's see where we stand at the end of the next 10 games where we'll have bigger tests in Spurs and City. It's promising for sure, but it's still very early.

A couple of injuries will also hurt the whole system very much. We have no real replacement wing backs in the squad, nor do we have a good enough replacement for Kante. Hazard and Costa would also be very big misses should they go down too.

Hopefully Conte is backed fully next summer and he can acquire the players he feels will fit into this system well and then we will be better prepared for bad form and injuries than we are now.

Yes ofcourse you are thread bare for Matic and Kante,Ivanovic and Azpi can cover the wing backs,also aina seems to have some trust from conte who regularly includes him in the squad.In the summer if Terry goes,you will need a Central defender,a box to box/central spreader of the ball for matic a dmf cover for kante but thats about it.

You can afford this squad since you have only the premiership to play for and if you reach the final of the fa cup will have another 5 games to play.At the very least top 4 is sealed,you might have tougher tests but this is what you are going to play as a formation and what conte isgoing to build the squad on.

Ivanovic and Azpi cannot play wing back. Neither are good enough with the ball at their feet to be wing backs. Ivanvoic is pretty good at arriving late to whip in a cross, but as a wing back he'd have to carry the ball more than he would as a full back. I think possibly Willian could do a job there. I think Aina is more full back than wing back also.

We may not need a centre back in the summer. Ivanovic and Terry most likely will go. But Christensen returns and he has played in a 3 at Monchengladbach. So Azpi, Luiz, Cahill, Zouma and Christensen. A youngster can cover the reserve 6th spot in training/cup games.

I'd say two new wing backs are needed, possibly two new central midfielders and one attacking midfielder.

Out list should be pretty big next summer: Ivanovic, Terry, Mikel, Fabregas, Oscar and a lot of loan guys.

Conte likes to recycle wingers/midfielders into wing-backs because of what he demands from them - non-stop running both ways. Giaccherini anyone? :evilsweey2:

Yeah, it's clearly a clickbait title. But I found it quite interesting and in-depth on how he (Conte) got his Bonucci anyway.

The self roast is incredible with this one.

Giaccherini was beastly in the Euro, that goal from Bonucci's pass was what put him in the spotlight but he clearly was one of the best regardless. Moses is becoming a steam train as well, he just doesn't get tired.

But then Azpi is good enough to be a cb?Also dont you think conte can perfect iVanovic as a cb in three at the back,you do need new wings backs,with that plan in mind..conte was considering keeping Cuadrado,i guess.Iva as 5th choice isnt too bad if you ask me

But why an attacking midfielder?Your formation doesnt allow one..Oscar can be moulded into a cm...he has excellent defensive duties which he doesn't dither from..and with kante next to him he can put in work and play the ball like matic..you might arguably need one more dmf.2 Wingbacks from what you say but thats about it i guess.

Willian Pedro Hazard maybe a left winger?

Alonso is very good with the ball eh compared to Azpilicueta,i did not put the microscope on him but you would have i guess?

Surprised no one jumped on candreva after his euro showings.Is ginkel still with you guys or you sold him?
