    Doubt it, Mark.

    Gone to Bayern, I'm afraid.

    Could be. We have so many out there on loan (most who will never, ever plays for Chelsea) that another one (whatever he cost) hardly matters.

    Shake his hand and wish him well. Won't be missed. A tad harsh on Sheva though :).

    Good to see.

    I'd suggest that it's because if we put in that level of 'performance' (if you can call it that!) against anyone decent, we'll get our arses handed to us quick-smart. It's fair to say that Tuchel mostly put out our second stringers, but they surely didn't have to put in so much effort to show everyone that that is what they are!
  9. Barnsley 0 Chelsea 1

    Pretty much, this. Those players looking to break into the starting first team, blew their chances tonight. i know that you have to give credit to Barnsley and their tactics, but even so I thought our guys were dreadful.

    Without question. You should lay back and enjoy the ride instead of being so negative all the time. More enjoyable, and a lot less stress. Go on, give it a shot!

    Spot on, Jane. That his defence was suspect, shouldn't even be an issue imo. It's not why he was in the team.
  12. Books You've Enjoyed Or Would Recommend

    Obviously (and like most my age, I guess) over the decades I've had the pleasure of collecting and reading the great western, espionage and crime novelists like Deighton, Chandler, Wouk, McMurtry, Rankin, and so on (the list of names and titles is endless, so I won't bore you with one!). However, if there was only a single book that I could take with me to that mythical desert island, it's be Catch 22 by Joseph Heller. I first read it when I was 20/21, and it's always made me laugh out loud, with tears rolling down my cheeks. I've returned to it many times since. I've lost count of how many copies of it that I've bought (if you have it, then my advice is to never lend it to anyone, because you'll never see it again!). A magnificent novel, and a one-off: although Heller wrote a number of other books, he was never again able to to repeat the brilliance of this his first novel. Stunning!

    'Yet' is the key word here. You should know that it you give them a little time, they'll get around to it.

    And why would they want to 'treat him badly'? Is it? Please explain.
  15. Sheffield United 1 Chelsea 2

    Been a pretty successful model though, wouldn't you say?
  16. Official: Chelsea Sign Thiago Silva

    But why? Surely if he continues to perform at his current level, you'd be mad not to give him another season, assuming that's what he wants.
  17. Sheffield United 1 Chelsea 2

    So what's new?
  18. Sheffield United 1 Chelsea 2

    Yes to all this.
  19. Sheffield United 1 Chelsea 2

    Except when it does. Like recently. Should have, could have, might have - football is like that, isn't it? I doubt that anyone is saying that we're perfect, or can't get better, just that they're happy with the coach and his players, so far. More to come surely, but that's for another day. We always run the risk of dropping points. Nothing new. Dominating possession is good start though, isn't it? And who's to say that it won't/can't continue? Tuchel is learning about his playing roster. It will take time for everything to fall into place.
  20. Tottenham Hotspur 0 Chelsea 1

    Do you think that we (actually, you) could move on now? It's not required that you take out your distain for Frank EVERY time somebody posts something remotely positive about him, or his time as Chelsea Head Coach. We get it, OK?

    Simply outstanding. The more I hear from Emma, and see her working the sidelines, the more respect I have for her.
  23. Non Chelsea: Premier League

    Stop it now. I just don't understand why you have to carry on, trying to be clever.

    See Ham's response. Save me the trouble.
