Great read again Ally. You were one of the main reasons I joined the community. I am not however convinced that Modric was keen to join Chelsea simply to play under AVB. I am sure the major pay rise and the perception that he had more chance of winning silverware and playing in the CL regularly was more of a factor. Hopefully AVB can talk to him and work his magic though.
You could be right. My hope is that he might agree with me in thinking Chelsea will continue to be as bad in the league under Di Matteo as they were after AVB's departure - his points and goals per game were worse than AVBs.
Pretty good. I had lost interest but Daniels stunning initiative has caught my attention again whatever happens. I also think the Modric thing has become boring and is something we can do without. There is always a line in the sand and beyond that point is something detrimental. We may have reached that point with Luka unless he outright rejects talk of a move and even then I'm not sure what has surrounded him this past year or so fits with the vibrant and positive future being constructed now no matter how good a player he is or any player like him. Some things are more important.
