  1. Musical Tastes

    Duckworth Lewis Method. Maybe not one for the American market, but I love this album.
  2. Musical Tastes

    I've been on a Gil Scott-Heron binge this week, came out of nowhere. Been listening to his albums with Brian Jackson in the care and whatever of his stuffs on Spotify.
  3. New Kits

    It's blue. It's got the Chelsea badge on it. It's fine. As long as Essien and Lampard are wearing it, I couldn't give a toss about collar details or chest stitching. It may well look ridiculous on men, such as myself, with widening waste lines. But here's a shocker: All football shirts look stupid on men with ever widening waste lines.
  4. New Kits

    You bet. Any chance we can go back to Le Coq Sportif? Looking at Everton's next kit brings up all sorts of wonderful possibilities.
  5. Musical Tastes

    Woah, there. Must get windy up there on the fence.
  6. New Kits

    So it's going to be, more or less, a blue and white version of the shirts the refs were wearing tonight in the CL?
  7. New Kits

    I think the Liverpool kit is average at best. Our black kit of this season is about as good as black kits get.
  8. Ashley Cole

    I really don't get this. Yes, obviously he's been stitched up and it's the usual fuss about nothing. But on his performances this season, I've been seriously underwhelmed. He may be in the top five performers this season, but that's down to how woeful some of the others have been. His performances have certainly been nowhere near the standard of impeccable Frank's. I'd put Alex, Mikel, JT, Bosingwa and, possibly, Anelka ahead of him performance wise. He has of recent, shown a remarkable ability to hit the highest crosses known to man. Must be Hiddinck's influence.
  9. New Kits

    Old school. Here's a leaked pic of their new Nike boots and Old Trafford exclusive ball. Their new team coach looks pretty slick, too.

    Sky slightly more optimistic on Kakuta:
  11. Chelsea Finances Thread

    Those valuations are pretty much correct in my book. Chelsea's only major assets are Cech (whatever form he is or isn't suffering from), Joe Cole, Essien, Mikel. Maybe Bosingwa and Ashley Cole. And none of them should be sold. Especially Essien. Carvalho is too old to generate much income, brilliant as he is. If City came in with a huge JT offer, would it worth taking? If they were to offer silly money? If he recovers his ability to jump, I'd say never. If he remains as rooted to the ground as he has since his back problems started, it might be worth making a very painful decision over. As it stands, the club will struggle to gain twenty million from it's expendable stars, though removing Ballack, Deco and Drogba from the wage list would help the club's outgoings. Mind you, I was shocked to see how much Anelka's contract is worth, so he could be off-loaded, too.
  12. Gael Kakuta

    And Fabregas' inclusion in the Arsenal team has upset Wenger's method of play to the extent that they've won sweet Fanny Adams since he became a regular. So it goes. Though that's not to say Kakuta is rubbish. But he does seem to have adopted the English winger's method of speed ahead of any nous as to when to pass or shoot a la SWP & Walcott.
  13. Salomon Kalou

    In support of Hanuma's Kalou argument I present exhibit A: Clive Allen. 1986-7 season. 33 league goals for S***s & still rubbish.
  14. New Kits

    A cunning plan. Don't really wear shirts. I like the current one, but for me it has 'HEARTACHE' written across it. These Zaragoza kits look to be in line with Carefree Chris' designs. I like the first and third, in Royal with white, obviously. The Third kit especially. Where do people stand on the minor colours? White alone? Yellow? Or perhaps a bit of red, which has popped up in the past?
  15. Chelsea Finances Thread

    Personally, I'd rather have one egomaniac running the club in his own way than ten pulling in different directions. Liverpool are struggling enough with two. All these take-overs seem to be masking a great big pin heading towards the big, fat English footballing bubble. All it will take is the inevitable match-fixing/doping/cheating scandal and the wheels are off. Unless you believe that the British are somehow genetically programmed to honesty and fair play. Then this money-centric, short-termism will send chickens home to roost. To be honest, I've never wanted Abramovich to stay put more than I do now. Investment or no investment, he's going to be far more beneficial than the alternatives.
