they are barely in a position to cover wage costs, so taking on new players is going to hurt them

Hence the deal I just mentioned

Apparently Neymar was a done deal until Xavi closed it down .. he felt that Neymar would unsettle the changing room

Default Premier League 2023-24 Season - General Discussion

Just been listening to City’s ex finance executive on TalkSport..
He says that Chelsea are deliberately failing the FFP guidelines… a calculated risk

Near guaranteed success and massive financial benefits against the risk of a nominal fine in the future ..

i think it's more wide ranging than that. It's only a matter of time until there is a tie up between Saudi and uefa/premier league. There is too much money on offer for these organisations to refuse. Once that happens ffp means nothing anyway

so are you suggesting that when a corner comes in, a goalkeeper can't go for the ball when he is blocked by a player? I don't think so

Like a said the only way to compensation Wolves is to let them take a penalty at the start of the return fixture

Pep Guardiola on Kevin De Bruyne

"It's a serious injury. We have to decide on surgery but he will be out for some time “

Paqueta incoming I think

Hopefully not correct

Chelsea have had offer accepted for less than 40m euros according to reliable french media.

Michael Olise to return to his boyhood club.

Personal terms had already been agreed

nah not Paqueta i think, more someone else on a loan deal would be more wise


4 months is not long, and when he's back, that replacement of his is on the bench, Paqueta wouldn't want that i reckon


--
same with Real Madrid now loaning Kepa as a replacement for Courtois and on a season loan deal, you can maybe also still use Kepa for the cup once Thibaut is back + Kepa will gain a lot of extra experience like this, upon returning to Chelsea next season

Agreed


At least he will add a little inventiveness to their ‘paint by number’ style of play


It may help Barca get Silva out of there

It looks like Wolves need to get a striker before the Window closes, but it doesn't take a genius to figure that out tbf.
