    Some people only come here to put in the boot. You need to question their support of the club.

    That's currently in 4th. Get a grip.
  3. Everton 3 Chelsea 1

    Personally I don't think Christensen is starter material at this level. He exudes an aura of weakness and I don't think its any coincidence that we've seen poor results when he's been put in ahead of Tomori. In these sorts of situation Willian needs to step up and assist Azpillicueta in guiding the youngsters but he just seems to go off and do his own thing. I'm not slinging the baby out with the bathwater yet but I had looked at this run of West Ham, Villa and Everton as a 9 point banker. Maybe we do need to look at the January window as an opportunity to bring in a little experience to guide the kids through the cold, wet days of winter,

    So we divest ourselves of the "dead wood" and do what? Buy in more dead wood (ie unused squad players) for large amounts of cash? Unless we can acquire players capable of hitting the first team straight away what's the point in endangering destabilising the current squad?

    I'm assuming the additional fine is to pay CAS Christmas bonuses? Seriously though, where DO these fines go?
  6. Chelsea 2 Aston Villa 1

    Personally I'm entirely relaxed having him as our keeper. I'm not sure having the greatest keeper that ever lived instead (whoever that is/was) would mean we'd be any higher up the league. In fact I'm not sure what we can add when our ban is over that won't destabilise a squad that seems to be maturing as a unit. I'm totally against buying squad level players and unless there is a world class player out there who can walk straight into the starting XI and immediately make a positive contribution, what's the point?

    It will be interesting to see if Petr can make a similar immediate impact like Frank has.
  8. New Stadium Plans

    Telegraph has an article behind their paywall about the stadiums plans today? Is the planning permission about to run out or something?
  9. Chelsea 0 West Ham United 1

    Wow. The vultures have really flown back into the forums this week. Many have been curiously absent for the last month. Makes you wonder which club they really support. Not a great display today but we’re still in 4th. Chins up lads, it’s a marathon not a sprint etc etc.
  10. Valencia 2 Chelsea 2

    Maybe you could argue that it was slightly safer than sitting back and letting them bombard our shakey defense? At least this way we were keeping them vaguely honest and giving them something to think about. At the end of the day the defense had a second string feel to it without Tomori. Maybe dispense with the suicide comment too as we didn't ship a third. I don't know what people are beginning to expect about this team, they're only a few months older than they were at the start of the season and many here were saying we were going to get roasted this year. As it is we're top four in the league and knocking on the door of CL knockout football. Yes we're riding our luck but its a learning process and I would prefer a lucky team to an unlucky one.

    We may regret not starting Mount. Always seems to be a disconnect between midfiled and attack when he is on the bench.
  12. Manchester City 2 Chelsea 1

    I'll agree with you however did I hear a stat that our possession was the highest a Pep team had every suffered? Suggests to me that we need to develop the route from midfield, through attack, to finishing in the back of the net. At the moment Tammy is not yet the smiling assassin he needs to become to cement his place when the ban is lifted. I've said it before and I'll say it again our overall play suffers when Mount doesn't start..

    https://www.theguardian.com/football/2019/nov/24/roman-Abramovich-chelsea-russia-wealth-visa Piece in the Grauniad. Personally I'd prefer the "zillions" to be invested in the stadium rather than destabilise the squad with half a dozen Galacticos.

    I hear we're going to unfurl a "SFL- The Special One" banner when we play Spuds.
  15. Media / Press

    I don't know. He did a job for us at Manure, a hole out of which they are yet to reappear from, now hopefully he will oversee the death and relegation of Spuds. The best stadium in the Championship? EDIT If he follows that up with a visit to the Scum when Jurgen decides to leave he will achieve imortality at SB.
