He can't do it before January, when he will have to open up the checkbook and force Jose to spend even if he doesn't want to. Pedro and Baba Rahman were never going to be enough, they need a CB, another attacking M, and a reliable back up striker for when Diego finally combusts and pulls a Jonathan Papelbon on an opponent during one of these games. It's cute and all how well they had done the past few years undercutting the Manchester teams spending wise but that needs to stop now.
It is tough, but with the way Cech has looked this year for the Gooners I'm happy with having Begovic in there instead. He's looked fine in the games he's played, it's been the back line that's underperformed.
As long as they make it back to the CL he's not going anywhere. The managing isn't the issue, it's the lack of bringing in young world class players, which Roman is clearly instrumental in. This is actually a good wake up call for them IMO.
pedro is going to be great this year btw, he was brilliant today. Maybe you guys can get Willian now that Chelsea is going to b done with him!
lol 2 points in 3 games
I've said for years that Chelsea needs to make changes on the back line, this is nothing new. I maintain that this presents an opportunity to finalize the Stones deal and look to find another CB (or move Ivanovic there if they get Stones). Should have kept Bertrand, I could never figure out why they didn't just keep loaning him until he was either ready or they were sure he couldn't break the first team. He'd solve a lot of problems for them this season if he was on the team.
swansea has a better starting 11 than Spurs right now. Should have sold Lamela and bought Ayew after all, he's looking in top form so far this season.
Swansea and Man City will both finish higher up on the table than your Spurs, so let's not act like Chelsea was outplayed by 2 bad teams. They'll come around, if anything this might be good as Jose will be forced to spend before the window closes.
.......says the guy whose team just gave up 2 goals at home to Stoke....
If the Inteligent Jew gets half the money back that he wasted on Soldado that would be a moral victory for Spurs
Hate agreeing with you but I do here. I would have held them up for the Ox + the money. There are 100s of good to great attacking mids in the world, but only about 12 good to great keepers, and Cech is still one of that group. I would have made them bleed for such a scarce commodity.
I think you even said that to Alex in the soccer forum tho
Everyone's got a price.....
