  1. St. Patricks 0 Chelsea FC 4

    Didn't we play it in the 2009-10 season under Ancelotti with Drogba and Anelka up front?

    He will play Jorginho because he is one of our best midfielders. He will have to play him deep because that is where he is effective. However, he is probably aware of pressure by people in the media and on the terraces who think Kante should play deep. This is a perfect illustration of SFL's problem. Given he has the same players, how much can he change how we play and how much should he? I suspect he will play a loose sort of 4-2-3-1. Jorginho to play deep, Kante will be asked to use his energy to push forward to support a fluid midfield. It will take a lot of hours on the training pitch and whoever plays up front is going to need tons of energy and strength. In the end, though, the key question remains the same. Are there enough goals in the side?

    There are times that I hope they are.

    Works for me. In the end, someone has to pay for the production whether that's the advertisers or the punters.

    I can understand that. Maybe that seems excessive to charge for that. From some social media posts, I was getting the impression that people were expecting that games would be free in general especially to STHs or members. But, CTV is not CFC. I suspect they could have made things free but they have a bottom line.

    Can someone explain something to me? I have never had a Sky subscription and did Chelsea TV through the web site. No live games except preseason but I get commentaries and other programs and watch the games a little later. Both systems had a subscription but the web site is what I can afford. I am not sure how the app works because I regard it as an annoying thing that keeps using my phone to pass on scurrilous rumours and gossip. Anyway, when they cancelled the Sky version, not much changed for me except that there is now no live programming but rather access to a database of programmes, live matches, reports and other content that are regularly added to. This is a much smaller change than it might seem once you get your head around it. Anyway, I thought the purpose of the change was to allow Chelsea TV direct access to revenues that used to be rinsed through Sky. I think Chelsea TV will still pay for access to match content for its web site either through the licence holder or the PL (not sure which). Preseason games are part of that content. If that is to work, why would we expect ChesleaTV to show matches for free? Have I missed something here?

    Think DD is playing OK.

    Never really look at the West Ham Web Site

    Does anyone buy any of the products of the sponsors? If not, why does it matter?

    Not all that important but surely the only time you can be sceptical is when you don't know for certain.

    On Chelsea web site and that app thing for those not able to go.
  12. I hadn't realised that we were restricting ourselves to their positions as first teamers.
  13. David Luiz was a DM. Kurt Zouma was a winger. Gary Cahill started as a central midfielder. John Terry played as a central midfielder for Senrab.
  14. Frank Lampard Appointed Chelsea Head Coach

    I couldn't say if it is a bad decision or not. Time will tell, I suppose. But what I do know is that they have appointed Frank and Jody and Petr, Chris and Eddie - that is the bed we shall lie in. They will bring something new. Will it be enough? Who can say? But I know they will get our support whether we think it an awesome or an awful decision because that is all we can do. All I hope is that we do not return to the sniping and bickering that characterised so much of last season.
