  1. Costa scored 6 goals in 17 games, League and FA Cup, from January 4th to this latest game against Southampton. 2 of those 6 goals came in the second half last evening's game. Before that it was 4 goals in 16 games. An imaginary slump? You be the judge. However, it was good to see Costa scoring again, and at last looking enthusiastic. Hopefully he'll stick a few more in over the coming weeks.
  2. All done. Enjoy.

  4. Hi Kev - sorry, but I have to ask: you apologised to whom, and for what? Or, were you talking about something else entirely? Sorry, but you've lost me here.
  5. Without question. It's Kante, followed by a bit of a distance. For me, he's set the rhythm of the team this season, and then some. That's not to say that others haven't been great too - Hazard, Moses, Luiz, Azpi, etc., have all been terrific. It's been a real team effort for the most part, which augers well for the coming weeks. But Kante has proven to be the buy of last summer.
  6. What question? You twist and turn so much that it's often difficut to keep up - but then I guess you know that already. You listed a selection of 'strikers' who arrived at Chelsea brittle and broken, I assme to show how good Costa is by comparison. I gave you a list of strikers who weren't broken - and all were superior to Costa. Something I notice that you don't disagree with. Now, what was that question, again? Nope. it wouldn't make any sense that he'd 'deliberately' play badly, unless he wanted to force Conte's hand to sell him in the summer. Even then, Id find it hard to believe. However, I believe that his mind is elsewhere, and he couldn't give a toss. And that Conte keeps playing him only because he's of the opinion that we really don't have anyone else. Maybe that's to force the club to put their hands in their pockets. The result is much the same.
  7. You know the answer before asking: Shite (in a blue shirt). By the time they all got to Chelsea, they were rubbish (despite how many here tried to pretend otherwise). At the other end of the scale however, there's Zola, Hughes, Flo, Hasselbaink, Crespo, Gudjohnsen, and Drogba - perhaps the real question we should be asking is "so what does that make Costa?"
  8. Or standing in the right place?
  9. Yep. World peace coming up next, just as soon as Conte gets a free weekend........:).
  10. Although, if you believe The Sun: https://www.thesun.co.uk/sport/football/3391336/chelsea-everton-romelu-lukaku-tammy-abraham/
  11. http://www.bbc.com/sport/football/39682193http://www.bbc.com/sport/football/39682193 Worth a read.
  12. 26 goals + 3 assists from 40 starts probably tells us why.........:). I seriously doubt that we're planning to sell this kid (he's 19 ffs!) anytime soon!
  13. With a short turnaround, I can see Conte bringing Costa, Hazard, and Fabregas back into the starting lineup. Courtois Azpilicueta Luiz Cahill (or Ake if Cahill isn't fit) Kante Fabregas Alonso Moses Pedro Costa Hazard Bench: Begovic, Zouma, Ake, Willian, Batshuayi, Loftus-Cheek, Chalobah, Matic. Personally, I'd have Batshuayi starting again, but I think that Conte will revert to Costa for this one.
  14. He did, and played well, too! Congrats to the lad! I agree, but tbh, I'll be surprised if he starts against Southampton, just because I think that Conte will want to get a performance out of Costa (he's long over-due).
