Hello everyone, I'm a constant reader (everyday at least twice) but only posted once before, I have family inside the football world an have been told we will sign 3 more signings at least, on top of lukaku and lindelof! maybe even 4 so don't panic they will come it's just the club being sensible an not paying over the odds like them noisy neighbours 😉.

Care to name any names? If this turns out to be true then we've got a lot of 'clearing out' to do yet. Something that would be really disruptive to our squad.

28 Jul 2017 12:16:15
Any names? :-)

28 Jul 2017 12:26:20
I love this kind of thing - 'family inside the football world', raw, nods me of Sydney's grandad. I hope you're right.

I'm amazed that several of our players haven't been offloaded already. I was expecting a massive overhaul early doors this window, with 6-7 coming in and 7-8 going out. The longer we leave to do our business (incoming and outgoing) the more problematic it may be for the start.

Although the gods have been kind to us with our early fixtures.

28 Jul 2017 13:30:53
I think if it wasn't for the injuries to Young, Shaw and Rojo then we probably would've sold a couple of our defenders by now. Blind, Jones and Smalling would be the obvious candidates. Although I do like Blind as a decent squad player, he didn't do himself any favours against Barcelona in preseason.

6-7 coming in? That was never going to happen.

28 Jul 2017 15:11:42
Got back a month and everyone was going on about 6 or 7 look at the sharkpod .

Always seemed a lot imo 3 or 4 tops.

28 Jul 2017 16:08:05
I remember an interview with Jose who said he learnt a new word from Ed Woodward - 'churn' when asked about transfers. Jose has in the past said somwething along the lines of he has been working for 15 years with 23 outfield players which include 3 goalkeepers, when he excluded Bastian Schweinsteiger.

Excluding Ashley Young, Marcos Rojo and a few youngsters I count about 24 players and can't see any obvious players that will be moved on though i do think this will be the final season for many of them.

28 Jul 2017 16:50:56
I always thought 5 or 6 if ddg left. Way too much mediocrity and failure condoned. We don't need a team of stars but we have too many below average players.
No team that has to start fellaini or blind or jones 20 plus times a season in the league will win it or compete to win it. They are not good enough. Good honest pros they may be but champions they are not.

28 Jul 2017 17:32:49
How long have we been complaining about average players, we have been having this same conversation since the days of Luke Chadwick.

28 Jul 2017 18:02:21
Ben gibson will go for at least twice as much as smalling or jones or blind or rojo. Vvd will go for 4 times as much. What fee could we get for fellaini or young in this crazy summer market? Our fringe players are worth buttons no top tier club wants them. In any any country. That's the reality. can't criticise ed for not getting top dollar for players no top club wants.

28 Jul 2017 19:43:22
Jose doesn't have to start fellaini he chooses to .
The club have backed the manager and it's obvious to most that Jose rates fellaini.

28 Jul 2017 20:37:12
He certainly got a decent amount of game time last season and always gave 100% and put in a couple of really good performances. We won't the league cup and euro cup. But that wasnt my point. Imo that if he starts 20 plus games in the league again next season that we are a lot less likely to end up competing to win the league.
No lack of effort and he can make an impact but he will be exposed over a season if a really regular starter at a club of our status. Imo there are too many players of his standard at in the squad and when we get injuries or need to rotate there is too big a drop in quality over the man their replacing in too many positions. Just my opinion but its backed up by our lesgue position over the last 4 years. I really do expect significant improvement this season and with 2 or 3 more signings of joses choice i'd be cautiously optimistic. Without at least 2 more we will need to rely on the perenial underachievers too often to sustain a title winning campaign.

28 Jul 2017 20:35:36
Did we not win the league when Jones played 20 odd games in 2012/13?

28 Jul 2017 20:55:55
Couldn't agree more Ken. At this level we want to compete at again in the near future, Fellaini, blind, jones, Smalling, young are just not good enough. Shaw could be added to that list too.

28 Jul 2017 21:05:08
That's up to Jose, he picks the team and if he decides to play fellaini he will, he knows best .
You might not rate him it looks like Jose does .
I'm not a fan of matic he was great when Chelsea first signed him but was poor last season but Chelsea still won the league .
Ivanovic was awful but Chelsea won it .
Moses was excellent big part in how Chelsea set up yet no one on here would of rated him at the start of the season .

It's Jose squad he has been backed by the club he needs to get the best out of his team .
He couldn't do that in his last season at Chelsea, conte could .

But Jose doesn't have to play fellaini it his choice, or the other players you don't rate .
Jose picks the team, the players we keep the players we buy, based on what he thinks, who he rates.
If you don't agree with him that's your choice.

28 Jul 2017 21:07:43
Smelling and Jones have both won the league .

28 Jul 2017 21:23:06
This is a far better squad than lvg had and Jose imo is a far better manager than lvg.
Add another 1 maybe 2 players like Jose has said he wants and tben its up to him .

Ken, Stand you may think he is wrong but I'm backing Jose judgement .

28 Jul 2017 18:51:05
Would it be Jose as he said it publicly.

28 Jul 2017 22:05:29
I can't decide what I think on our squad. On the one hand I think it's good enough, on the other I look at our starting 11 every week and think there's no way the opposition are worried about this lot.

28 Jul 2017 22:43:58
I had this debate with noucamp last year i thinj spurs Chelsea and city all have much stronger squads than ours. If we add 2 or 3 more high quality players and promote a couple and sell 4 or so players i'd be delighted.

28 Jul 2017 23:13:23
Chelsea played almost a first 14 they never had any Europe major difference .
Man for man I don't think they have a better squad .
Amazing Jose had the same squad bar Luiz in 16th .

Gds comp next to no one if any had Chelsea winning the league, fans change there mind at a wim

Jose will do what he thinks is best, what if it's not what you think is best?

28 Jul 2017 23:48:06
Thanks for the lecture jred. i'm aware who picks the team. This forum allows people share their opinions and debate. To use your own words back at you it would be a dull site if we all ageeed with evrrything jose says or does. But you chsnge like the wind and forget when some of your own predictions and opinions are proven wrong.

28 Jul 2017 21:19:32
Killahvirusofhollowvisions, Actually not, he made 17 appearances 3 of them as a sub conceded 17 goals in those games only 2 clean sheets we only won 10 of the games he appeared in and won nearly a full half point less per game when he played than when he didn't.

29 Jul 2017 00:35:22
It's not a lecture it's an opinion.
#worse sjw ad in 22 year.

Jose will do what he thinks is best, what if it's not what you think is best? lol.

29 Jul 2017 00:41:47
Ken, Killahvirusofhollowvisions.
Eh? Are you causing arguments some where else?

29 Jul 2017 08:42:44
Its the name of a poster dopey. Unbelievable geoff.

29 Jul 2017 09:41:30
On what page.

29 Jul 2017 11:37:38

29 Jul 2017 12:53:35

Getting mixed up with who he is being a keyboard warrior with .
Jones won a EPL but glory hunting fans won't like that.
