  1. Official: Antonio Conte Appointed As New Manager

    Well, all I can say is "Conte, good luck." Our chickens have finally come home to roost. We've got away with it for about 5 years, papering over the cracks, touching up here and there, a dab of paint. But now, we have a major rebuild on our hands. We havebeen guilty of keeping players, key players/leaders, past their sell by date instead of selling them on sooner with another player coming in. Sowe are left with 4/5 leaders who's legs go, we sell them or allow them to leave which leaves us with no true leaders on the pitch. We have 10out-field players looking around scratching their heads. I don't want 11 super stars on the pitch, just 11 players who are willing to go the extra mile, fight for each other and have 2 stand out players/leaders who can calm the nerves. A re-build is a must and if it means missing out on CL for another season, so be it.
  2. What Do You See In Rugby And Cricket?

    I didn't start until 4 years ago, so my knees,shoulders,back or neck aren't shot like most players around my age. But when I took it up, the first two months of playingI walked like someone who had just had a car crash. As for your hands and ribs, the recovery rate seems to take longer as we get older. Not fair!

    Do or die for England today against the Windies in the T20 Final. Will lightening strike twice? As for me, my rugby season finished yesterday. My team team finished 2nd in the Eastern Counties Greene King Div 4 South, so that is promotion for us. Be careful what you wish for! Time to give my aching 50 year old bones and body a rest....................

    What a win and talk about making the last over even more exciting!! Oh Lordy! And when Pakistan beat India tomorrow, riots in the streets, me thinks.

    Not for KIDS!!!
  6. Musical Tastes

    Most people cherish the music of their teens, no matter what decade it was. I can still hearme old man telling me, "Call this music, in my day..............." He loved Elvis, skiffle, rock 'n' roll etc, so I imagine that his parents were telling him the same thing. But I also loved, loved the 90's Britpop. Some truly great music,bands and fashion. Really miss those days and I was 30 back then. True, it does feel like the Victorian era again, with the haves and have nots, the divide is greater than ever. Whether the youth of today take an interest in politics is hard to say. I know that my son (just finishing his 2nd year in 6th Form) studied Russia and Germany for 2 years and has made him a socialist at heart. We've had some interesting conversations! As for the qualitymusic today???Maybe that's down to the stations choice of music? Radio 6 is a must though. The music of the mid 70's were full of anger and resentment (The Clash, Stranglers, Billy Bragg to name but 3)where as now, there's just apathy.

    I think 1977 smashed the Establishment and the Victorian grip of this country for good.

    We won the Triple Crown after beating those chaps from the West of England, and still nothing on here?
  9. Norwich City 1 Chelsea 2

    Norwich defended very well yesterday and were unlucky not to get a point. Hopefully they will be a bit deflated after that result?
  10. Non Chelsea: Premier League

    So, our choices at the end of the season are to try and beat Leicester and give Spurs a chance to win the title or to throw the game? If it comes down to the last game that is? Rather have Leicester win it and can you imagine lots of kids waking round next season with Leicester shirts on?

    Damn! I always enjoyed his posts, full of mirth andmischief and brightened up the dullest days. Sad loss.
  12. MK Dons 1 Chelsea 5

    Blocked, are you kidding me? He bottled it big time and left the smallest part of his body in the way as a token gesture. The ball was there to be won and he chose not to. And the last time I checked, tackling was an integral part of football. So to use an excuse ( as someone did on here ) that tackling isn't a part of his game, is laughable.
  13. MK Dons 1 Chelsea 5

    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/football/article-3425440/Alan-Shearer-labels-Chelsea-midfielder-Cesc-Fabregas-pathetic-Spaniard-pulled-50-50-challenge-leading-MK-Dons-goal.html Very hard to disagree with him on this one. The only negative thing about the game.
  14. Where do we finish?

    No European football for us next season.
  15. Crystal Palace 0 Chelsea 3

    Don't think he hesitated too much for Middlesbrough. The guy should be given a chance.
