    So, due to a legal fraud case with a club Hazard played at when he was a pre-teen, the full amount Chelsea will get from the Hazard sale have come to light -- £143M .

    Theres also several reports that we only paid 62M for Kai, with an additional 8M in incentives, contrary to the earlier reports of 80M +20.

    That madrid deal is highway robbery.

    So @BigToe that puts our net spend so far at -9m

    Hazard 143 out

    Chillwell 50
    Ziyech 40
    Kai 62

    for a total of 152 in.

    Now obviously Pulisic and Kovacic were in that time frame as well, but we have a bunch of small 10-15M sales there that put us roughly around a 50m net spend.

    Not bad business.

    Yea, I saw the fraud case thing earlier today. The Havertz deal could turn into a robbery as well.

    Lukaku's goalscoring record really is pretty fantastic.

    274 senior goals in his career in exactly 548 games. 0.5 goals per game. Just turned 27.

    Only ~120 goals off Messi at the same age ahaha.


    Only 28 players in history have managed 500.

    Ronaldo (755), Messi (731) and Ibrahimovic (554) the only active ones at the mark.

    Though:

    Lewandowski: 497
    Suarez: 482
    Aguero: 430
    Huntelaar: 418
    Cavani: 415

    are active within 100... top 2=certain.
    Aguero seems likely. Probably takes 2.5 more years.
    Huntelaar seems impossible now at age 37.
    Cavani... maybe? Probably will take 3-4 years if can be healthy.

    Covid year, lol.

    3 guys on the Czech national team tested positive on Friday, hours before the game against Slovakia. The game was played anyway - without those who tested positive. After the game, the team was "dissolved" and a completely new roster was put together for today's game against Scotland :laugh:

    Mahrez and Laporte have COVID.
    Foden kicked out of the England squad (with Greenwood) because he got thirsty in Iceland...

    Not sure even they could afford to drink much in Iceland.

    To be fair, have you seen the blondes in Iceland? I can't blame him at all.

    What can I say. Our "Z" squad played that goal better than our "A" team. Later, they conceded a goal the same way our "A" team would :laugh:

    Only got text updates, but certainly sounded like your Z team should have won that one.

    There was certainly sustained pressure for the last 20 or 30 minutes, but I haven't seen the penalty that resulted in the winning goal. There was one hilarious miss by our guys though, probably will be posted as a gif in the upcoming days :laugh:

    Given how quickly they had to have been put together and get to the location of the game, the play was quality and entertaining to watch

    No, didn't even know there was one. Is it based on last season too?

    Probably not the way Leeds were hoping to begin their first game back in the PL.

    This game is ridiculous. 3-2 now.

    Leeds pushing a top club in week one is fantastic.

    It's a real shame the stadium is empty.
