God I hope Spurs can sign Ndombele. He could potentially be a transformative player for this team.

Lloris and Sissoko need to tell him the good word!

Great signing for the American market but he has been fairly mediocre this season.
He had injury trouble literally half the season and you can count the games, where he was a difference maker on one hand.

I'm thinking he might be remembered by Chelsea fans as the flop that came after Hazard. But lets give him a season to prove otherwise and hope he stays injury free.

I don't see a flop but he's been over hyped by some.

Would that "some" be American media by chance? :wink:

Pulisic doesn't move the needle for me.


Pretty much, a lot of Chelsea fans in general seem to be buying in too hard on him too though. If he weren't American I don't think he would have been as hyped or cost as much.

He plays for the U.S. men's team...Couldn't even qualify for the last World Cup. Heck, the way things are going, they might not in 2022. :wink:

There were stories and a comment from one of Chelsea's top guys about how part of buying him was to try and grow the Chelsea brand in the USA. Especially middle america where Pulisic is from. I think some of the overpay might be related to marketing if he does become a star.

Yeah, I could definitely see that.

If Chelsea fans think he will replace Hazard & his productivity, they are sadly mistaken. That's why I made my remark about them missing out on CL next year.

I think Mount will have more impact than him next season.

He's from Eastern Pennsylvania, that isn't all that middle American.

Carrasco to Arsenal could be finalised quickly according to Belgian media.

Anything that isn't LA or New York is middle America to people outside the USA.

:lol: You've clearly never been to SF then. It would cost you an arm & a leg to live there. But, that goes for most of the Bay Area in general. Really most of the state of California. There's nothing "Middle" about it.

Well if Chelsea is planning on expanding their brand to "middle America" they should probably know what Middle America is.

According to Bild, it seems that Mats Hummels might return to Dortmund. After signing Hernandez and Pavard for the guard positions, Hummels is concerned about his status in Munich in next season. Kovac already has accepted this wish.

Aint even worth the trouble. Barca should just stick to the current offense and improve midfield (well they have already wirh de Jong) and defense.

Exactly. Only problem is their mentality imo.

Why even think about bringing this guy back that causes so much trouble on and off the pitch.
