  1. Who will be the next Chelsea boss?
  2. Chelsea Women

    Sam Kerr was simply outstanding in this one. And she'll need to be at her best in the second leg!
  3. Yep, well done Roman and the Board. That was exactly the way to deal with him.
  4. Given the 'sources' you chose to quote, Mark (if you can call them that and keep a straight face), then yes I think that it's a stretch. Dwmh's reply pretty much nails it for me.
  5. Chelsea Women

    Great performance, and a well deserved victory.
  6. Official: Chelsea Sign Christian Pulisic

    Ok. And I don't. But they're nothing more than opinions, which is what sustains these forums. Not by me. Wouldn't feed Barkley (as I may have said a million times before), and I can't see RLC making it, but would like to be wrong. But what does that have to do with Pulisic? Other than being a convenient straw man? Well since that decision doesn't belong to either of us, I'm happy to go with what Tuchel wants/does. Me personally - if he wants to go, then say goodbye and make sure we get a decent fee.
  7. Official: Chelsea Sign Christian Pulisic

    Other than for the obvious, that he isn't as good as most of us thought he would be. Shame, but if it stays that way, he won't be around for long.
  8. Chelsea 2 Everton 0

    Yep. Not a doubt.
  9. 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.
  10. Liverpool 0 Chelsea 1

    Just thought I'd mention that while people seem preoccupied by how Liverpool have become such a poor side, that's not our team's problem, nor Tuchel's. You can only play what's put in front of you. I'll take the 3 Points, and not be in the slightest bit embarrassed.
  11. Claude Makelele

    Sorry, but I think that this last comment is very harsh. No, they're not Lamps/Ballack/Essien, but then very few midfields were/are. Maka and Kante are simply different players, playing in different eras. Both good, but in different ways.
  12. Claude Makelele

    Nor me.
  13. Chelsea 0 Manchester United 0

    Yep. And my guess is that we will be, at least until the end of the season.
  14. Liverpool 0 Chelsea 1

    Tuchel has basically sorted out our defence, and the midfield is looking better (not perfect certainly, but definitely better). Apart from Giroud, the forwards/wingers are still a work in progress (and injuries haven't helped). It seems to me that the whole thing needs time to click into gear.
  15. Chelsea 0 Manchester United 0

    No, it really isn't. That would be silly, imo. It's about the player, not his father, or what his father says, surely?
  16. Transfer Talk Topic

    What is it with you? No, it doesn't mean either of your ridiculous contrivances. You're wasting time - yours and mine. Now get over it, and move on, for goodness sake .
  17. Transfer Talk Topic

    Just like I didn't say that you did, did I?
  18. Atletico Madrid 0 Chelsea 1

    Me too ..... but I doubt that we'll agree! :)
  19. Atletico Madrid 0 Chelsea 1

    I'm sure that there's a Daily Mail 'spot the Havertz' game in there somewhere :).
  20. Transfer Talk Topic

    We're always 'linked' in the press though, aren't we? To pretty much anyone who takes the media's fancy for a headline. And those headlines are always played out on these forums, whether they have any substance, or none. To me, the only thing that matters is who we actually sign. He's not really.
  21. Southampton 1 Chelsea 1

    We are going to stop this nonsense before it get's out of hand. So move on and talk some football.
