The Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern still really aren’t sure what to make of their summer business.
Indeed, while the Blues in the bar were delighted to see well over £100m spent, though Antonio Conte’s squad somehow remains pretty thin and the Ross Barkley fiasco has seriously annoyed our punters.
Michael Emenalo and Marina Granovskaia are understood to have taken a more prominent role in transfer proceedings, only to see the Everton midfielder snub a move at the last minute.
Emenalo, in particular, has proved to be a divisive figure amongst our punters. Chelsea’s technical director, the 52-year-old has often invoked the ire of the Shed End faithful over the years for his perceived intrusion on managerial matters, so he’s not a popular man in our bar.
Amid previous suggestions Conte is unhappy at Stamford Bridge, the drinkers in tonight believe Emenalo should do his very best to appease the Italian in January and should already be working to avoid another transfer mishap.
With that in mind, here’s a look at 3 signings Emenalo should hand Conte in January.
