  1. Chelsea 2 Manchester United 2

    For pity’s sake it was one game. Thank god you’re not the manager.
  2. Chelsea 2 Manchester United 2

    I'd have started with Giroud and Pedro. Morata and Willian have their roles, but starting against a high profile opponent isn't it. We did well to pull outselves back into it without panicking but we should never have allowed Manure to control the game like they did in the second half. Mourinho showed his ability to negate our threat in the wide areas and we struggled throughout. No idea what the fracas was about at the end but no doubt we'll be docked ten points or something equally draconian.

    Media getting behind Jose about this swearing in Portugese nonsense now. Imagine if he were still our manager. Anyway we will have their full force behind him when they play us even more than usual. Hopefully we can overcome and continue our improvement.

    You say that but I well remember these forums back in the day where the majority would be criticising him and demanding he be sacked for not trying or throwing himself on the ground in a petulant strop.
  5. Southampton 0 Chelsea 3

    I watch these games where we have so much possession and always end up thinking that we'd be bloody awesome if we had a proper striker.
  6. Southampton 0 Chelsea 3

    I think Pedro is still feeling the effect of his shoulder
  7. Southampton 0 Chelsea 3

    You all know who I mean ;-)
  8. Southampton 0 Chelsea 3

    I think I'd go with "The Keeper" Azpilicueta / Rudiger / DL / Alonso Kante / Jorginho / Barclay Pedro (if fully fit, otherwise Willian) / Giroud / Hazard The more time you give Morata "to give him game time" the more Giroud becomes rusty himself.

    OMG. They are dancing in the streets of Cobham.

    What I find frustrating is that when squad players are given the chance they rarely take it. The thing is that when so many are playing you end up being a collection of individuals rather than a team. Consequently the player has to shine on his own without much assistance from his team mates, and usually this doesn't happen. As happened tonight. Still the club won and I suppose that is the main thing.

    Well that ain't going to happen mate. We need some semblance of continuity and changing everyone bar the keeper won't wash. Pedro will start assuming he's fully recovered as he will need the time to sharpen up. Don't go into these games thinking you're playing the Dog and Duck 2nd XI or it will end up biting you in the arse.

    Doesn't matter who is out wide when you rely on Kante being the player to arrive late into the box for the crosses. Crouch-esque he is not.
  13. West Ham 0 Chelsea 0

    I think if we had been offered 16 pts after 6 games after the Community Shield we would have all bit the hand off. I will keep banging on however with the fact that Kante is NOT SFL and we are wasting his talent by expecting this.. Pedro was a miss but all things considered after the trip back from Greece things could have been a whole lot worse.

    Would be nice to break the trend of an appalling performance after a midweek away trip abroad.

    Cahill probably deserves a move although not to Manure for God's sake where he could make all the difference to their back line. There's a player who made the most of his limited talents. Classic case of being in the right place at the right time.
  16. PAOK Salonika 0 Chelsea 1

    I have to say I tend to agree with Droy. I don't really understand the depth of Jorginho love on these forums. Yes it's nice to have a midfieldfer who doesn't dwell on the ball but he really doesn't provide the incisive through ball the way the Fabregas can and I'm not even that much of a fan of the latter either. I would argue that David Luiz is the best "incisive passer" on the squad although as it tends to be from defense rather than midfield that is highly situational. What you do see now in midfield is one touch passing which can open up the opposition as long as the ball finds its way to Hazard. Whether that is down to Jorginho or Sarri you can argue about all day.
  17. PAOK Salonika 0 Chelsea 1

    Mate it was 1-0. Hardly a walk over against whipping boys.
  18. PAOK Salonika 0 Chelsea 1

    And that's why we depend so much on Hazard. So many chances and only the one taken. Add to that a possible shoulder or collar bone injury to Pedro at the end and it's another of thouse frustrating nights. Just get back and put a performance in against West Ham at the weekend boys.

    The history books will show this as a comfortable win for us and I suppose it was however our midfield can seem horribly muddled sometimes. In order to accommodate both Jorginho and Kovacic Sarri has had to attempt to convert Kante into Lampard. It says much of Kante that he has been prepared to give it his best but the result has been that we have lost probably the best DM in the league and gained an average box to box midefielder.

    Appropos of very little I thought this might interest some.
  22. Chelsea 2 Bournemouth 0

    Good result in light of previous meetings at the Bridge. Really pleased we kept a clean sheet for once. When we come back from the break we've got a trip to Athens to look forward too as well as another one of those "special nights" at Anfield. Hopefully we'll still be unbeaten by that point.
  23. Media / Press

    Media rumours gathering pace that Roman is looking for a buyer for the club. Can't say I blame him what with the way the government has treated him. If he did go I sincerely hope he sells to the right sort of buyer and not just bite the hand off of the first US media/sports mogul looking to stick their noses in the TV money trough.
  24. Newcastle 1 Chelsea 2

    I'm not sure of the rationale behind converting one of the best defensive midfileders in the world into an average box to box attacking midfielder either.
