  1. Brighton 1 Chelsea 1

    You're ALWAYS critical of Ziyech even when he plays well. Your views on him are therefore worthless.
  2. Brighton 1 Chelsea 1

    Maybe you should watch the game with open eyes AND an open mind. We all know you don't like Ziyech for some reason, but he's been trying to close down the opposition, he's tried to 'get things moving' (not always come off... but he's tried) Lukaku has done nothing positive. Mount has done nothing. CHO has done nothing, bar blasting the ball over the bar). Kante has done nothing. Jorginho has done nothing. And people wonder why Ziyech didn't celebrate his goal... he was almost saying "we don't deserve that goal!"
  3. Brighton 1 Chelsea 1

    Ziyech put in a shift against City, Lukaku did bugger all. Ziyech putting in a shift again, Lukaku doing bugger all. I think Ziyech didn't celebrate because he's pissed off at some of his team-mates doing bugger all (Mount and CHO have also been poor)

    Do I sense some discontent between Lukaku and Ziyech? "Your passing isn't centimetre perfect!" "How about you do a bit of running, then?"
  5. Squad Status: 2021/22 Season

    When DWMH says "Sounds unlikely. I know he is training at Cobham, but can't find any Squad news." he means Roman hasn't personally phoned him yet, so all official announcements elsewhere are to be discounted. 😉
  6. Non Chelsea: Premier League

    I was under the impression that AFCON was moved because of the rainy season in Cameroon when it was due to be held. Nothing to do with Covid (though some qualifying games were rescheduled because of it) [EDIT] Just seen this... https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/africa/59698986 So it was originally moved due to the rainy season, then moved again because of Covid

  8. No... it was me pointing out the bleedin' obvious! With Chilwell out, with James out, with Christensen out, with Chalobah out, and previously Silva out, I'm not sure who you expected TT to play at wing-back with games every 3 days when one of those capable of covering at wing-back is also having to play at centre back.
  9. Maybe it's because both first choice wing-backs are injured, one back-up wing-back sometimes has to play at centre-back and the other needs a rest from time to time? Or maybe TT just likes winding you up for the hell of it?
  10. If Martinez is favourite, then the bookies must be smoking crack cocaine. Leave the Belgium NT job with a World Cup on the horizon in order to take over at Everton for an owner who sacked you some 6 years earlier because the fans hated the boring style of football being played? Hmmm... let me see. Stranger things have happened at sea. 😉
  11. Chelsea's forward issues

    In which case Marina is going to be really busy, given we still have 3 defenders potentially leaving in the summer who will need replacing!
  12. Squad Status: 2021/22 Season

    We have problems everywhere except in goal. Some are of our own making. We started this season with four defenders - all regular starters - in their final year of contract. At least one will need replacing. We also need to get proper cover for our first choice wing-backs. So that's at least three defenders for starters. In midfield we need someone, like a Fabregas, who has the vision sorely lacking in our current three. With Gallagher returning from loan we would then have 5 strong options. Up front seems a mess, but with all the other problems - and taking into account we've already spent £300m over the last few years on attacking players - we just have to hope that something clicks next season, otherwise it requires a big clear-out of big ticket items on high wages and finding replacements who we can but hope do better. Maybe one can be sold this summer (Ziyech? Pulisic?) without the need for an immediate replacement. Perhaps integrate Broja, who we own, to keep costs down?
  13. Manchester City 1 Chelsea 0

    Mount certainly looked sub-par against Spurs. I felt then something wasn't quite right with him. As you say, the press and armchair critics have no idea of the actual fitness of players, so, in the case of Saturday's game, Pulisic and Ziyech picked ahead of Mount and Werner, for example, is seen as a sign of madness on Tuchel's part rather than possibly him starting with two players in a higher state of fitness than the other options. If Kepa hadn't taken that little step to the right just before de Bruyne shot, and Lukaku had gone around Ederson instead of trying to shoot over him, we might have been celebrating a 1-0 victory rather than a 0-1 loss. We weren't brilliant, but the game could have gone either way. If we had won 1-0 people would be saying that it was the sign of champions to win when not playing well. Apparently losing 0-1 when not playing well is a catastrophe!
