  1. Newcastle United 0 Chelsea 2

    Please try harder people....:). I'm sure that everyone here has done little else!
  2. Media / Press

    Yes, that was my age too. However, barbaric remains barbaric, and senseless slaughter of the innocent remains just that, and not something to quote for effect. I would have thought that you were above that.
  3. Media / Press

    Really? Which 'age' would that be? Being 'neutral' doesn't mean that a mod can't state an opinion just like everyone else on here. End the lecture and move on would be my advice.
  4. Ray Clemence,,,,A Worthy Opponent

    Well said, chara.
  5. Newcastle United 0 Chelsea 2

    We still have Alonso and Palmieri as back up though, don't we? And Azpi can slot in there with James playing right back. It's not like we don't have viable options - quite right that (like you) I'd prefer Chilwell to be fit, but we can afford to rest him if needed.
  6. Non Chelsea: International Football

    Then start a topic :).
  7. Tammy Abraham

    Sleeping, as it happens :).
  8. Tammy Abraham

    Also worth noting (as many here seem to forget), that during that first season at Chelsea, DD missed 2 months with injury.
  9. Tammy Abraham

    This. Thank you Droy, saved me the trouble (again).
  10. Non Chelsea: International Football

    All professional sport is driven by tv money. Hate to think where they'd be these days without it.
  11. Chelsea Football Club has today completed the signing of Ross Barkley from Everton. The 24-year-old has signed a five-and-a-half-year contract and will wear the number 8 shirt. Upon signing for the Premier League champions, Barkley said: ‘I'm overwhelmed, I'm looking forward to it and I'm really excited to get started. ‘To be given a fresh start at a new club like Chelsea, it's unbelievable for me. I'm looking forward to continuing where I left off at the end of last season and hoping to improve and add more goals to my game.’ Club director Marina Granovskaia added: ‘Ross is a player we have long admired and are certain he will prove to be an important player for Chelsea. He possesses outstanding technical and physical attributes, matched with good experience of the Premier League and a strong desire to succeed at the highest level. We welcome him to the club and look forward to seeing him in action.’ Barkley arrives with a wealth of experience for a player so young, having already made 150 Premier League appearances for Everton, as well as being named in England squads for both the World Cup and European Championships. His versatility ensures he can play just behind the striker, in a deeper midfield role or in an advanced wide position, with his ability to get on the ball and create chances one of the player’s biggest strengths. A hamstring injury at the beginning of the current campaign has kept him out since August, which means he is eligible to play for the Blues in all four competitions.
  12. Tammy Abraham

    I don't see him being either, tbh. Tammy Abraham as Tammy Abraham will do me fine. He's very good now, and I expect him to get even better.
  13. Yes, I guess it will. I'm not his biggest fan, and never have been, but I'd still like to see him fulfil his potential (whatever that is) as long as he does it somewhere else :).
  14. Non Chelsea: International Football

    ^^^^^^^^^^ Chara, it's called 'television rights', and they drive the game. 'NO SPECTATORS' (or few, anyway) at the games doesn't really count anymore.
  15. Newcastle United 0 Chelsea 2

    Looking forward to this game, not least because it's on here at a decent hour! I think that we'll win it, but imagine that it'll be close.
  16. Media / Press

    You really do need to stop this nonsense. Ham asked you a question - why don't you do us all a favour, and try answering it?
  17. Official: Chelsea Sign Hakim Ziyech

    I don't care! And I doubt that many here do. This is the Ziyech thread - there is a Willian thread if you wish to discuss him (although given that he's now an Arsenal player, I'm not sure why you would!).
  18. Official: Chelsea Sign Hakim Ziyech

    Just to point out the obvious: this isn't the Tammy Abraham thread, it's the Hakim Ziyech thread. There IS an Abraham thread which I've just bumped back to the 1st page (it was lurking on Page 2) for anyone wishing to talk about Tammy. Would appreciate people at least trying to stay on topic. Cheers.
  19. Tammy Abraham

    Bumped just in case anyone has forgotten that Tammy has his own thread.
  20. ^^^^^^^ Thanks for that chara.
  21. Non Chelsea: Premier League

    Hook, line and sinker! He'll be off as soon as he can negotiate an exit strategy that United will accept.
  22. Not sure how much of the above info is still relevant, so I thought it may help to crack up this thread again. If you're looking for/have found effective streams, then please post that info here, so everyone who's interested can share. Cheers, M.T.
  23. Burnley 0 Chelsea 3

    Rotation? I can't see any other reason, because I think that Zouma is playing the house down at the moment.
  24. Transfer Talk Topic

    Then it doesn't seem to be working 'clearly', does it? For the players I listed?
