  1. Chelsea 3 Southampton 1

    We are currently top on 16 points
  2. Chelsea 3 Southampton 1

    Will we come to regret selling Abraham and Moses
  3. Chelsea 0 Manchester City 1

    I've just seen the pre match comments from TT - "Thiago [Silva] had some issues in training, otherwise he would have started." So I guess that explains the selection
  4. Chelsea 0 Manchester City 1

    Yes but I haven't been impressed with James attacking output in his last couple of appearances, he seems to get forward and turn back IMO City are much stronger than Juve and its not like we are in a group of death. I don't feel the need to be resting anyone today for Juve in 4 days time, go strong here and rotate for Juve if needed, followed by a much easier run of games. Anyway there is little difference in James over Silva so I'm not actually saying it's some gross error. As I said - in TT I trust.
  5. Chelsea 0 Manchester City 1

    Arguably Silva in for James would be the strongest team on current form. But in TT we trust, no doubt there is a tactical reasoning behind it. Other than that definitely the right selection for this game.
  6. Chelsea 0 Manchester City 1

    According to BBC TT has confirmed Mendy will be back in goal having recovered from a hip oroblem
  7. Stamford Bridge Upgrades

    It just gets better
  8. Chelsea 1 Aston Villa 1 (4 - 3 on penalties)

    Cheers Bob! Looks like we may see more of the 352 this season after the spurs game. I'm guessing the idea here was more of a lopsided formation with one of the wing backs getting further forward than the other
  9. Chelsea 1 Aston Villa 1 (4 - 3 on penalties)

    I missed the game. Slightly surprised to read about RLC playing in a CM Jorginho role, when I saw the line up I assumed he would play either side of Werner with Ziyech in our ususal formation. Did we play 3 CM's from the outset, or did we line up as above with RLC switching positions when Mount came on for Kante?

    Bakayoko has apparently agreed to a wage cut to join Milan, while we discuss a transfer fee with them
  12. Following Chelsea's Loans

    Conor Gallagher got some good reviews for his performance for CP today, including from Viera. I believe he picked up the MOTM award too
  13. Transfer Talk Topic

    Was Ramsdale discussed here last year before we signed Mendy. Back to back relegations and goes to Arsenal as 2nd choice for circa 30m We sign Mendy for less and win the CL But then I guess Kepa was 70 odd mil 🤣😰
  14. Transfer Talk Topic

    Gundogan's 13 goals from cm last season were certainly instrumental in City wining the title

    It seams this is no longer the transfer thread

    They would also need to pay huge sums to his agent and dad to compensate for the good feed they would get if he leaves for his release clause. Apparently Dortmund are struggling to come up with the funds to buy Sancho's replacement Malen for £25m, despite selling Sancho for £73m. Seems they aren't in good health financially, which bodes well for us.
  17. Billy Gilmour

    If Billy goes on loan that leaves us a bit short at CM, could be we see one of Ampadu, RLC or Baka kept in the squad next season as cover. Ampadu could probably do with another loan. May as well cash in on RLC now if we can, Baka is likely to leave for nothing either this summer or next so we may as well keep him as cover. I imagine their wages are similar, much of it may depend on what offers we get for either, and who else we sign/shift.

  23. Official: Chelsea Sign Edouard Mendy

    He has appeared in numerous 'team of the seasons' selected by pundits that I have seen online in the last week or so
  24. Chelsea 2 Atletico Madrid 0 (3 - 0 on aggregate)

    Made Atletico look very ordinary over both legs. The solidity TT has brought is very reminiscent of early Abramovich era Chelsea, we are so hard to play against. This team has a very Chelsea feel to it again in that respect. Bodes well! Our squad is ridiculous if we get everyone firing.
  25. Chelsea 2 Atletico Madrid 0 (3 - 0 on aggregate)

    Celebrations from the lads in the stand there!
