Hmmmm, not sure on Chelsea....notnsure if they're having a great window or a poor one

Think Koulibaly is a great signing, he comes in for Rudiger

Sterling we all know can be a world beater or he can struggle there....genuinely curious to see how he does, I do hope he does well

They're after Fofana for £85mil....that's extortionate

That Villa kid seems a good prospect but he is just that, a prospect and souns like they are paying him a fortune for his age

And cucurella I think is a quality player but more than £50mil? Given they have Chillwell thats an insane amount

Also their midfield is fucked....they're gonna have a huge problem next summer when Kante and Jorginho (two players who are still first names on the sheet but who's primes have passed them) could potentially leave on a free

We’re definitely overpaying for some of these players. No doubt about it. Personally I’m very happy with the window so far. Would have been better had we landed some our first choice targets, but I guess that’s not always possible.

scatter gun approach springs to mind


Pretty fair assessment I’d say.

I do give Boehly a pass though considering it’s the very first window and we don’t have a sporting director or just a normal football operation set up yet. Hopefully things are more structured and planned in future windows.

which is fair enough, might as well do it now whilst you can

I understand that you won’t want to start with a new owner by being critical. But, the reason there is no Sporting Director and football operation in place is because Boehly got rid of them. I always think that club owners should be kept away from agents and transfers, it usually doesn’t end well. Paying £55m for a left back when you already have a £50m left back seems a strange one and I do wonder what the plan is. We will see.
