He's English and uhhh, lives in London. He has experience, too.

He seems like a really good place, let's hope we can swap him for Ramires or Mikel.

Kick wrote:Honestly, though. As a cheap second choice keeper, we could do a lot worse. Green is ok and the only other GK that I think we should be going for is Ruddy. However, Ruddy would cost a lot more.


Took the words right out of my mouth. Precisely what I've been thinking since reading the news. He's not exactly the most exciting potential signing in the world, but he's solid enough, is English as you mentioned, and is well seasoned. Would be reminiscent of the Schwarzer signing, for me.

Indeed.

In terms of top English GK's, there is Hart, Forster, Ruddy, Foster, Green, McCarthy and then the rest. Most of whom are as bad as Hilario.

And of that list, the only possible players would be Ruddy, Green and Foster. Ruddy and Foster would both cost a reasonable amount. Green on the other hand could be quite cheap.

Want to make a summer transfer thread, or should I? Or is it too soon, do you think?

Well the transfer rumours are starting to roll in, and it's not unlike us to do early business, remember Marin a few years back?

I could see an early deal for Green/Costa happening, tbh.

And it's almost April.

Believe the way we've been doing it for awhile now is you make the Transfer Window threads and I make the Preseason thread. #tradition

Your prediction from last summer:

Kick wrote:Strikers

....

Mario Mandzukic, with Robert Lewandowski signing for Bayern, it is possible that Mandzukic could leave the German champions. All of Bayern have been denying that Super Mario will leave though so this could be a difficult task to pull him away from what is arguably the best team in the world at the moment. If he does decide to change teams, we will face stiff competition from the likes of Arsenal for his signature. I see him as a back up option to Costa.

Left Back
Luke Shaw, a good wholesome Chelsea lad, a Leftback, a starlet with massive potential. What's not to love about this guy? Well, we don't exactly have the greatest need for him with Dave playing his socks off every game, however, Azpilicueta can always move to RB allowing Shaw into the LB spot, unlikely, but possible. If a deal is to happen, we'll have to fend off the likes of City and United for him and I can't see it happening before we sign a CF.

Other possible names for the LB position are: Ricardo RodrĂ­guez and Alex Sandro.

Midfield
Ross Barkley, a fantastic English youngster who is having his break out season, he is an AM could play CM, Jose has publicly stated he is a fan, what could go wrong? Well, Barkley has been linked with everyone, including Liverpool recently, it won't be easy nor will it be cheap to acquire his services.
While there have been no links to a CM, it is widely believed Chelsea will be in the market for one. Watch out for rumours about a CM when we begin to gear up for the world cup.

Other
Other players linked to us in less needed positions are: Lavezzi and John Stones. Lavezzi is unneeded and more than likely just paper talk while John Stones could be a great player for the future in CB.


Kicks prediction:
In: Costa, Shaw, and Stones



Summer 2013:

Kick wrote:I'm gonna get the ball rolling by saying, I firmly believe Signing De Rossi, Cavani/Gomez/Lewandowski/Higauin and a back up GK is the bare minimum we need this summer.


Winter 14/15:

Kick wrote:Drogba's recent comments suggest he may not be around next season so we may well be in the market for another CF. Kramaric, Talisca, Messi and Icardi have been mentioned as possible replacements. If not, Bamford could well replace him. I believe we'll know a lot more after this transfer window.

In terms of the band of three, I can't imagine we'll make any changes, unless Salah leaves. I personally cannot see this happen, for one, a replacement would have to come in, and the best option would surely be Thorgan Hazard, who is on loan until the end of the season. If we cannot get him back from loan, I think we'll keep Salah as he doesn't play much regardless.
Reus is a name which has been thrown around a lot recently, however, the injury and the fact his low release clause only starts in the summer points towards him staying at Dortmund, at least for now.

However, with Khedira entering his last 6 months so I can see us negotiating a pre-contract with him at the very least.Kick's predictions:
In:
Kramaric 10m (6 month Loan back)
Khedira Pre-contract (joining next season)

Out:
None


Winter 13/14 you were big on Cabaye.



Fair to say we'll be treating your incoming predictions with the same sort of seriousness we give a hunstman post :coffee:
