Random Thoughts:
Fully healthy i love Zaniolo's game. Kid plays with an edge a lot like Chiesa.
It still feels like way to much money but I like Muddryk's game. I think his speed is elite. And I feel like i was sleeping on Havertz just a little. I think he might actually be really good.

I still don't rate Mount or Gordon. Its always laughable to me that people write off players like Raphina as dispensable but Mason Mount is a through-and-through starter. Mount is a nice rotational player. I will give Gordan a year or two before i judge. Kid has a great work rate but still very rough around the edges.

I want Mount to stay besides being a chelsea youth I believe Liverpool would want him because he would feel the same role as he does it in Chelsea; Which is anything absolutely necessary that the manager will ask him to on the field. Can’t say Klopp has that type of player in his squad, besides Milner, which Chelsea‘s equivalent would be Azpi and both are aging out.

Also the FFP case for Mudryk and the rest of this window wouldn’t be looked into so much because it is an eight year deal. so the money will be stretched out over those years. good for this timeframe, but bad in the long run. if his stock rises, let’s say in three years, someone will easily offer a better salary which forces our hand to renew the deal

That's totally understandable about the long run concerns

I doubt Chelsea owners intend to pay starting players on low wages in the long run

Reece James for example. He went from earning $90k a week wages to $250k a week wages after owner changes while he was still under a contract. Boehly felt Reece James's salary was too low

At a Bloomberg Invest event last October, co-owner Jose Feliciano mentioned their goal is to increase the club's revenue hugely. He states he and his group don't expect this to happen straight away

I know teams are hoping Everton get regulated, you can Onana for a bargain


Moises Caicedo has just changed agents
Was talking to a friend who's an Everton supporter and I told him I hope Everton gets relegated so that Onana would be available. Would be available. It might be a pipe dream, but at that point, they would have no choice if Pool came in looking to do a deal.

Has Everton sold you guys a player before?

I think I’m on the opposite side of my Chelsea brothers in here, I would not be giving him the kind of contract he’s looking for. He’s good, he’s not that good. And with all these dudes coming in, someone eventually has to be sold. Might as well be Mount imo

My fear is he will be Ox 2.0. Great for a year 2 with some mixed-in injuries followed by some more years of more injuries.

Unbothered, flourishing, moisturized, in his lane.

This is what he was dreaming of when he closed his eyes in this moment

Lebron can leave. I like Ziyech and want him to stay but Potter might think otherwise. Auba already wants to leave but will make some apperances. we got more wingers than necessary. Broja injured and Havertz was been converted. I like the idea of Thuram coming in the summer but this is Boehly's boat now.

always thought Mount was a industry plant but beggars can't be choosers especially if it's a decent price.

Tried watching this Feyenoord series on ESPN+ but something is up with the frame rate they uploaded or filmed this at. looks terrible but the content is good.
