little Brazilian fellow who doesn't seem to be setting the world on fire just yet but still an U21 older than Gabi Jesus but not in Brazil squad

So would you suggest that paying 40 mill for him and then having to loan him straight back to Bordeaux as part of the deal, would not be classed as good business?

Crouchy or Carroll to Chelski.

This could be the funniest transfer window in history!

Lennon heading to Burnley. Understandable as we have just signed Walcott as a nippy winger who can't cross.

I hope it works out for the lad though, he's had a few personal issues, and thankfully it looks like he's over the worst of it.

There's even been mention of Benteke, it's funny when you think about all the Chelsea fans that were making fun of Liverpool in the summer for signing their reject Salah.

yeah you only need 1 nippy winger who can't cross but we do seem to breed them in England:

SWP
Lennon
Walcott
Ox
Sterling
Dross Townsend
Zaha
Ibe

etc etc

They could hardly be any worse than what we have currently.
Why we continue to get defensive players when the offense is the problem.

I thought Morata was the 2nd coming of Christ?

Conte is a dead man walking. He’s lost it since Jose called him out for match-fixing. He won’t last the season.

Jose’s gonna sign a contract extension, we’re dumping Miki, buying Sanchez and Luke Shaw is back as a top left back. I’d say that was a pretty good month’s work. Well done Woodward. Always rated you.

If he makes it four seasons, I think that means Man Utd will be relegated.

He's never made 4 seasons anywhere so they are safe. He'll sign the contract then leave with a big pay off like he always does.

Morata started out well enough, may yet do well. I'm beginning to miss Costa
Chelsea may not be able to match the big spenders oop North, and may squeak 4th place.
I like Conte prefer him to Mourinho, and Conte may well be better off leaving Chelsea and heading back to Italy. Sorry to see him go, I can't see anyone who would do any better.
