;D

That CL win aside I thought he'd do better.  He inherited a really strong squad and has been heavily backed since but not much to show for it.

Boehly seems to be the polar opposite to FSG in the transfer market.  While it feels like FSG agonise over every transfer - arguably correctly with the amounts involved - Boehly is very impulsive.  I guess Boehly's approach is fine if you're willing and able to keep throwing money in with a relatively low hit rate on transfers.

Koulibaly sure looks a bit shite, or out of place. Mishandling the ball, making the wrong pass, making a rush challenge and missing his opponent.

Mad that they're in the same midfield boat as us, haven't brought anyone new in since 2018.  Yet they've spent so much more and have all those players out on loan.

Weird squad planning with all that backing.

Think they look like the prime candidates to drop out of the top 4. They seem to have downed tools again, its that time of year, but this time theres no Roman Yacht to go plot for another manager sacking.

That's the job he's been angling for ever since he left. He'd not be given the financial backing Tuchel's had but he'd have the most expensive squad he's ever used.

They keep wasting money defender where they clearly need a forward, Sterling, Havertz, Mount are not goalscorers. They should've went for Isaak or Gabriel Jesus.

They could do with a 9 who brings the other attacking players into the game, like Romelu Lukaku

Like Firmino  ;)

Lukaku is pretty useless in the build-up play as he has a poor touch and seemingly no awareness of his teammates.  He's great when he can isolate a defender 1v1 (or even 1v2), get his head down and try to work space for a shot.

At least Lukaku, if used properly, would have taken a good share of the goalscoring burden.  As it stands it seems like a lot is going to rest on Sterling with most other goals coming from set-pieces.  That would probably be OK if Tuchel could get their defence functioning.

Fofana - £75m
Cucurella - £60m
Sterling - £50m
Koulibaly - £35m
Chukwuemeka - £20m
Slonina - £8m

So around the £250 mill mark again for chelsea, spending is well and truly out of control.Especially those top 2 fees, good grief.

Interesting reading Leicester fans opinion of Fofana, I know it’s normal to be utterly pissed off and bitter when one of your top players leave, but good grief, they is no love loss for him and his behaviour :lmao

Suddenly the fee we paid for Nunez is looking a bargain.

Spent in excess of £250m on players this summer now, with less than £40M made in sales!

I'm so surprised that other Prem clubs, especially a couple in the north west with huge debts, aren't making a bigger deal out of that 1.5 billion owner loan just... disappearing. Maybe its accounted for in the sale and we have to wait for their accounts to be published, but if they've cancelled it then I Imagine other clubs would at the very least want their huge loans no longer considered against them (even if they technically aren't cancelled). That's a huge millstone just taken off and left while the likes of United have 650 million dollars attached to them. Sure United's is to external groups, but it must have an effect on their P&L on their books.

If he's being asked to head the ball too frequently - which isn't exactly his specialty - it could affect his ear and cause an infection. Especially if the ball hits him on the ear directly.

He seems like a cup manager. Even last season two domestic cup finals taking us to pens and like us and City were knocked out in CL to the Real Madrid voodoo.

Don't know what it is about Chelsea though that makes managers play such negative football.
