  1. Leicester City 2 Chelsea 0

    Team? Whatever Frank thinks.
  2. Fulham 0 Chelsea 1

    I don't have a problem with people saying what they like here (provided it's legal, of course). I also have a Twitter account, and I see so much bo**ox on there that I like the fact that I don't have to read it here. Take away the pictures of cats, plates of food and the warriors with the extra clicky keyboards, and there is precious little left. But, if people want that, then I won't be offended. I will ignore them just as I do on Twitter. By the way, I also have/had Quora, Parler and Minds accounts. I gave up Quora because people calling each other names didn't actually add very much to my life. The other accounts have not been used very much because I only registered to see if what people were saying about them is true. For everyone's benefit, the posts contain the same nonsense as on Twitter but with a different spin. I sense that wherever they come from, authoritarians and narcissists will still employ doubtful moral certitudes to insist on being heard and they all end up sounding much the same. So, I prefer to keep off-topic stuff out of the football forums. That is not to say, that I want the thing so narrowly defined that we are not allowed to talk about other stuff in the context. In general, I have not found that to be the case. But, I don't much like being preached to whatever the religion or cult being pushed. That applies just as much to the utility of Jorginho in the central midfield as it does to broader issues. The problem with the non-football issues is that people are more likely to be offended if people push back on them and I desperately want to avoid another forum becoming like all the rest.
  3. Non Chelsea: Premier League

    Perfect result, then.
  4. Fulham 0 Chelsea 1

    Our right side was a bit anonymous. Neither Pulisic or Kova had good games.
  5. Fulham 0 Chelsea 1

    None of the fixtures are easy but we have a run of games which are mainly mid and lower half teams (apart from Leicester and Spurs). This is a "must win" game.
  6. Chelsea 4 Morecambe 0

    We'll probably lose to Luton.
  7. Chelsea 4 Morecambe 0

    Havertz never seems to know when people are around him. Is he not getting calls?
  8. Chelsea 4 Morecambe 0

    Maybe. I expect it will be a three with Billy a little deeper than the others. I think SFL likes it to be a bit fluid.
  9. Non Chelsea: Domestic Cup Competitions

    Seems like a day for Chelsea loanees. Just seen Jamal Blackman for Rotherham, Jamie Cumming about to play for Stevenage.
  10. Official: Frank Lampard Appointed Chelsea Head Coach

    I did in 1979 and 1988, so I expect so.
  11. Chelsea 1 Manchester City 3

    Ziyech AND Pusilic AND Werner as a central striker
  12. Media / Press

    Flower of Chelsea?
  13. Chelsea 1 Manchester City 3

    My reading is that the players tested positive are Jesus, Walker, Ederson, Doyle and one other. Someone said they thought it was Cancelo (but there was no evidence) If I were Pep Guardiola I would be seriously pissed off if players were leaking that they have tested positive. Actually, I don't know why any clubs admit it except in their reports to the FA and Premier League.
  14. Chelsea 1 Aston Villa 1

    I am not sure, I feel like I am in the group that admits to knowing nothing other than the simple truth that in truly competitve sport, and who would want any other, there are fine margins between winning and losing. So, while we might hope to win every game, we should not expect to do so irrespective of how much is spent or who is in charge, and, even when the result does not go our way, we should enjoy the moments of brilliance or, at least, the application of effort. I increasingly suspect that is what any of this is actually all about. Happy New Year, everyone.
  15. Chelsea 1 Manchester City 3

    Kyle Walker and Gabriel Jesus (plus some backroom staff) tested positive. Gundogan will probably be available. James and Ziyech might or might not.
