Chelsea 2017/2018 Season Thread | TYFYS Antonio
Last season, this happened. I searched for FA Cup highlights, but it said those could not be found.

Now, this guy is gone to join a club with more history :(


No need to fear, though, because this man is still around to lead us in domestic competition and European competition:


This guy committed his future to the club


We lost our backup keeper and signed this guy to fill the void:


And we're currently haggling over a fee for a 16-year-old who will never feature for the first team.


Kits:
We have new kits and they are Nike and they aren't good and they're very expensive and I'm not posting them because I don't want McCaigBro to come up #inhere.

Transfer Talk:

Possibly coming in:
We are linked with a lot of top players, but this is starting to feel like the last time we won the title when we didn't sign anyone and we fell off a cliff and lost our manager midseason. Everybody else is taking care of business, and we're hoping that Rüdiger is really on a plane and that Diego Costa's childish antics aren't going to cost us a top striker.

The top linked targets are Rüdiger, Bakayoko, Alex Sandro and Lukaku, but only Rüdiger seems like somewhat of a certainty at this point.

We can live without Sandro, IMO, because Marcos Alonso is too handsome to sit on the bench:




Possibly leaving:
Diego Costa is going to leave; it's a matter of when, not if, at this point. Nathan Ake is already gone ( ). Matic is rumored to go if Bakayoko comes in. Musonda is probably going to be sold.

Possible lineups
Obviously this depends on transfers, but this is how we could lineup depending on who comes and goes. I tried to sub guys in and out (even if I don't think they're the strongest player) to provide a look







Prediction Time:
If we get the rumored players over the line, we repeat as Champions. If we continue to drag our feet and only end up with Rüdiger and some panic buy on the last day of the window, we finish 3rd.

I think Sandro is the key piece for the 352. Hes a much more effective and dangerous player going forward than alonso, with the speed to get back.

Cesc getting into the normal rotation will take the sqaud to the next level, imo, since its looking like we'll have some really athletic midfield cover for him finally.

Having both sandro and alonso frees up some tactical flexibilty, and rudiger seems pretty damn quick for a lcb, considerably faster than cahill at least.

We are going to do what we did last time we won the league, aren't we? This is starting to get worrying.

Would be ok with waiting til january if it means we can get griez for costa plus cash.

Lukaku never struck me as a player with a real high work rate, which seems like something conte would primarily look for.

The rumors of rom being contes primary target never made much sense. Feels more like the board wanting to undo joses decision.

I don't think he wanted Lukaku. I didn't want Lukaku. I'm just concerned that none of the guys we've been linked with have been signed. Whether we wanted Lukaku or not, it seems clear the higher ups did. And he's going to end up at another top four club. That's a little frustrating/concerning.

Fingers crossed for Morata & James from Madrid.

I dont think james is a good fit at all. Dont really need another luxury finesse 10-style player when we already have one whos better. I also think the Prem would chew him up and spit him out.

Morata, belotti, and whoever else, whatever. if griezmann is serious about leaving for england, our chances just improved dramatically.

Morata would prob work very well, but his price tag is absurd and its clear the board is afraid of spending the money laying around. But as far as panic buys go, it could be worse i guess.

I know that. Just curious why he's so concerned about Pogba's happiness.
