  1. Following Chelsea's Loans

    LAMPARD EXPECTS TOMORI TO BECOME 'TOP PLAYER' Frank Lampard has tipped Fikayo Tomori to become a “top player” after the Chelsea defender completed his loan switch to AC Milan. Centre-back Tomori broke into Chelsea’s first team in style last season, blasting a fine long-range strike in a 5-2 win at Wolves to announce his Premier League arrival. The 23-year-old even went on to make his England debut last term, having caught the eye of boss Gareth Southgate, but could not maintain that upward trajectory at Stamford Bridge this season. Many Chelsea fans have expressed frustrations with Tomori’s loan, but Lampard insisted the academy graduate can still flourish in west London in the long-run. Asked to explain to those vexed supporters why Tomori has left temporarily, Lampard said: “Because I have five centre-backs and I can’t do this job and expect to please every fan; that’s football. “What players you should pick or not, whether you are searching for consistency or going on an unbeaten run there are questions. I have to pick two at a time and the numbers don’t always add up. “Fikayo is a developing player, a very good player. He is going to be a top player.” LAMPARD EXPECTS TOMORI TO BE.textClipping

    'Reports' where, and by who? And the people who apparently wrote these 'reports', how would they be likely to know? The press is always full of bollocks written by people looking for an angle. We all know that, don't we?

    You go for 'guesswork', but I'll stick with 'invention'. Whatever that 'something' may be. Ah well, there's an alternative. i didn't say that it was.

    Sorry Mark, but where did this nonsense come from? You have no idea what (if anything) Tomori has said to Lampard. Seriously, it's pure invention.

    How about just choosing to be honest? It's not, and never has been, about chasing popularity. There is no 'right', or 'wrong', just opinion.

    Not everyone, Martin. Many, sure, but not everyone. Everything wasn't 'brilliant' even then. But no, not everyone wants him sacked. I want him to at least see out the season, to find out if he can drive the players into turning it around. This is (and always has been) a forum of differing opinions. Long may it survive and prosper that way.

    Time to take a bit of your own advice, mate. As Ham says above, you're always on the wind up, so to react to a member who takes the bait, is rich, even for you. So stop it now, and move on. Thank you.

    So, are you you saying that they shouldn't have hired him in the first place, or that they should have? Yes, you'd think so. But does what the team is going through now, qualify as 'some bumps"? Or is it something more serious? No, it wouldn't. I think that's the point. And if it isn't a surprise, then why is he still in the job? So, what is it that 'isn't right' at the club, do you think?

    Worth remembering that they're the same 'idiots at the top' who hired him in the first place.

    Try 'embarrassing'.
  12. Official: Frank Lampard Appointed Chelsea Head Coach

    Particularly on here! Maybe he's not 'saying it' because it's not what he wants? Just a thought.

    Fairly obvious, I'd have though, but there you go. Couldn't miss them. Oh dear. Nobody, including me, has refused to entertain off topic' debates. And it has nothing to do with any 'in-house rules' that you seem to think exist. Let me enlighten you - there aren't any such things that dictate the way moderators moderate!. Commonsense suggests (as it must do even to you) that staying on topic on forums such as this makes it better for everyone? If you want to tell everyone how to run the site, then start a topic and go for your life! Sorry, but it's dead boring. Glad you like it though.
  14. Fulham 0 Chelsea 1

    Of course you have, champion!

    The 'current characteristics'? Go on Pete, explain what they are, as I'm sure we'd all like to know. There's barely any 'censorship' at all. What?

    Couldn't disagree with your view. He's surprised me, tbh, and that's a good thing!

    'Churlish'? Seriously chara, you surprise me. My comment wasn't a criticism of your post, simply and observation as to why this forums have strength. But primarily, it is a football forum. If I did, I would. Thanks for the advice, Again, you surprise me.
  19. Fulham 0 Chelsea 1

    No chara, really it doesn't. This is a football forum, designed to discuss the ups and downs of our football team/club. This is why we exist.
  20. Fulham 0 Chelsea 1

    Serious question: Did you see anything in this game that would suggest that we could go to Leicester and get 3 points?
  21. Media / Press

    Not from me. All I did was ask you why? I doubt that anyone thinks that she should replace Frank, just that maybe she could if that situation arose. It's not a crime, mate - there's plenty on here that have already written-off Frank -I don't happen to be one of them.
  22. Media / Press

    Have you? Because women football isn't much chop?
  23. Media / Press

    And clearly, you don't think so. So the obvious question is why not?

    Except that he isn't.

    Or maybe longer? The 'Lampard Out' rhetoric is taking place on here, and not necessarily at Board level. That doesn't mean that it doesn't exist, of course, but it certainly doesn't mean that it has legs either. Happy to wait and see what happens.
