So, for no apparent reason, the official Premier League website screws up and tells us that Jose will officially become the next Chelsea manager on June 3rd. http://www.premierleague.com/en-gb/n...-chelsea.html? http://www.premierleague.com/en-gb/n...-chelsea.html? They were supposed to wait until Monday, June 3rd to release the post, but well...
Here's to happy accidents!
Welcome home, Jose!
confirmed that Mourinho was leaving Madrid for Chelsea. It is done.
Well, the thing is that it was reported that we were going to pay 20-22m, plus a one year loan of Kevin de Bruyne, for Schurrle, but new reports have surfaced that we're only going to pay 20m Euros, and no loan, which is a much more palatable fee. However, the fact that the deal isn't done yet may imply that Jose doesn't want Schurrle and wants to give KDB a chance.
a sugar cookie...are you kidding me man

Bob, I'm not even going to talk about the fake Arsenal bid for Fellaini. Of course, I just did, but...
We've gone all in on Cavani, apparently, plus we're the only legitimate bidders.
Lukaku will play for us next season and chances are the KDB will as well.
Torres looks like he'll be on his way out (thankfully!), but how we sell him is beyond me.
How's Buffy and Xavier too?
Yep, Chelsea at least, are making moves and bringing in quality players. It will be so good for Chelsea fans to see Lukaku play, guessing Mourinho wants a Drogba-like player up front, hence Torres' upcoming departure(?).
We've finally gotten rid of Arshavin btw, good riddance and how he's wasted the last 2-3 seasons .
Well, assuming this deal for Cavani goes through, we'll have two very different options up front.
Torres should be gone somehow.
It is good to finally see Arshavin out on his ass.
With Lukaku and Cavani, you've got the support striker type in the former who can hold up the ball, create opportunities for his partner and Cavani is the box man that gets in and amongst the chances. It could prove to be one of the best combinations for Chelsea, if it comes to fruition and done right.
Didn't I read that Atletico Madrid said they'd welcome him back? Whatever club Chelsea ship him off to, they'd be making a massive loss, they'd have to lower his price immensely, as not many clubs would be willing to pay big for him. Well, any actually.
Yes, that was a long time coming imo.
Yeah, Rooney for 25m and 200k+, what a joke. Two seasons ago, it would've been a great move, but then he started to become lazy and lose fitness. He's worth about 20m and 75-100k wages now, if that.
Jose doesn't use a 4-4-2, and most people think that that we'll switch between a 4-2-3-1 and a 4-3-3. So, what we think will happen is that Cavani will start the big games (if there was a CL match, he'd play, and then Lukaku would play the Premier League game right before that and stuff), Lukaku will rotate in and get a lot of playing in the Premier League, and that we'll switch to a 4-3-3, or even some type of diamond, by pulling off an AM and replacing him with Lukaku.
So you'd end up with like Mata---Lukaku---Cavani.
That was last summer. We could've apparently acquired Falcao for Torres plus 30 or 40m last summer. Basically, Torres wants to play in the WC and he needs playing time to do that. We're not going to be giving him playing time, so he'll have to leave. We're probably going to have to subsidize some of his wages in order to sell, but it was a bad contract and I think Roman's learned from his takes with Sheva and Torres that he can't buy players. He needs to let more informed football people make the purchases.
It was. Four goal man right there! :P

Holy crap that looks amazing.
The first one's quite pretty, but the second one looks a bit disgusting. Marshmallows, M&Ms, and chocolate sauce on a normal pizza is just wrong.
