  1. I agree with your assessment on Fabregas. for all the talk before on how much space he would have, I didn't see it. there were a few over top passes to Pedro (first 10 secs) which I think he thought he should have done better and a similar over top pass to Costa. Aside from that, it just seems he wasn't comfortable. I have mentioned this before, but I am slightly concerned on Costa (even though he scored) he doesn't have that zip about him...I thought willian gave the ball away after he came on. Defence were great though...hope Stoke down tools like they did against the spuds..
  2. Is anyone concerned with Costa's performance? Yes, he scored, but his touch is really poor since the China rumours
  3. anyone worried about Costa's form since the China rumours? I haven't watched the Burnley match, but the Liverpool and Arsenal matches it seemed like he was reverting back to his last season form. I.e crap
  4. If the rumours are true regarding recalling Ake, would Chelsea not do now, rather than waiting any longer?
  5. I very much doubt the game will be played. I live 20 mins from shithurst park and all I can say it's very very misty
  6. I think the top 6 have spent a significant amount of money and will also target 85+ points
  7. Did you expect it to be this difficult to bring in players? - Conte: "I must be honest. We will have a problem to reach our target." Damn, was hoping we would win the EFL cup. oh well ;)
  8. If we keep the same defence, I will be very surprised if we make the top 4. Its less than a week before the transfer deadline, so anything can happen until then, but I am sorry, this is just ridiculous!
  9. I think I will cry if I see the same defence against West Ham as we had last season....
  10. Apologies, I think I may have been watching a different match to you. I thought Matic was terrible. Aside from one pass when he laid it on to Moses (which he couldnt miss) I never felt he was in control. Aina too was not particularly good. Was the first time I've seen him play so was looking forward to that, but man oh man, he wasnt great. In fact, that first half performance doesnt fill me with confidence. Moses and Willian were dire, Fabregas kept losing the ball, not much service to Costa, Traore poor first touch etc....Second half, Chabolah and Kante were great!
  11. soooooo, any transfer news? justsaying
  12. not sure how reliable this is from the Daily Mail: Provided permission is granted, work will commence at the end of this season (last season) with the construction of improved access from the back of the current stadium to Fulham Broadway Underground station. This will be achieved by putting rafting over the railway lines behind the East Stand and the Matthew Harding Stand.
  13. I was under the impression that work on the concourse from Fulham Broadway station to the ground would begin at the end of the season just gone
  14. Seems like ivanovic is signing an extension to his contract, maybe that's the reason for aina to leave?
  15. Never seen him play, is he any good though?
  16. Can't see him managing Chelsea
  17. This surely has to be the end of that!? I hope you have another cb we are looking at and a cm because I don't think we have a good enough squad
  18. Re: Marin. I am sure that this season will be his last with Chelsea and he was signed 4 years ago? Hence the reason why its only a one season loan
  19. Not sure if Everton would get more money next summer for Stones. They've been leaking goals since the start of the season and I don't think that will improve. In addition, I don't think Stones has played particularly well in any of those matches.
  20. Anyone have any idea on the hold up with Rahman? I thought both player and club had agreed personal terms
  21. Roma have just signed Adriano from Barcelona so I doubt they would bid for Rahman
  22. Reports in la marca, stating that filipe Luis has gone to Athletico for 16m euros
  23. Reading la marca (Real Madrid paper by the way) it seems bartomeu is in front and that Turan won't be sold back to whoever wins
  24. Right-o
  25. £16m per year for Costa?! That's an obscene amount of money
