  1. Chelsea 1 Manchester City 1

    Bore draw. No controversial decisions by the officials. No goals. No injuries. Mourinho answering only football questions in interviews before and after the game. Nothing for Sky to talk about. Sky reap what they sow.
  2. Chelsea 1 Liverpool 0 (AET)

    You should never expect the atmosphere, you make the atmosphere.
  3. Thibaut Courtois Departs

    I'd rather seen none, because back in the day we had a defence which could facilitate and support that.

    That's not it, James, as well you know. I want a C63 but guess what, I can't afford it.

    Because whilst Messi might right now be one of the two best players in the world, and I'm sorry to break this, he's unproven in the Premier League and all its foibles. Many people before you have made the mistake that past performance is a guarantee of future performances and will continue to do so.

    Brilliant logic. It's not about how good an individual player is, it's how he fits into the system. If we're to change that system, you're talking about a lot more money (and time) than the frankly ridiculous fees being bandied about for Messi.

    A miracle? That amount is a ridiculous stretch of the imagination by any degree. Where did you even get that figure from?
  8. Chelsea 3 Watford 0

    They'll never be reduced since they've effectively kept down the costs - such as that is - for years now. When ticket prices were frozen for some time for STs and day tickets, corporate tickets were not. It's a very significant part of the matchday income. Most people would be horrified if they knew how much corporate tickets are. Domestic cups will always have a loud away contingent since the allocation is much higher than for league games and home fans will get moved. Regarding moving the fans, East Upper is a non-starter because of segregation and safety issues. Egress from East Upper is slow at the best of times and it would be a policing nightmare. I'd like to see dugouts moved to the West Stand and put the away fans back in East Lower. Again, probably impractical.
  9. Southampton 1 Chelsea 1

    He's scoring at the same rate he did for Arsenal.
  10. Southampton 1 Chelsea 1

    They all know how to do that. Shoot at what, through what? Why do you think Southampton have conceded single figures at home this season, with almost 70% of their games being clean sheets? It's disappointing to get only a point, but they're a decent team, particularly at home.
  11. Southampton 1 Chelsea 1

    It's difficult I think. Southampton are a ridiculously stingy team - only us have conceded fewer and then only by one - and this is how they play at home. They love to soak it up. They made us look like Arsenal in the box at times because there was just no way through, and taking pot shots would have played into their counter attacking hands. I don't know what I'd do right now. Probably Willian for Schurlle then Mikel off a little later. Edit: that said, we're not taking advantage of the missing Clyne, so might be some interesting changes.
  12. Southampton 1 Chelsea 1

    I'm stating the obvious (to some) that those results are meaningless, as our results against Newcastle and Sunderland were.
  13. Southampton 1 Chelsea 1

    Or how they got on against Newcastle and Sunderland?
  14. Thibaut Courtois Departs

    Of course, but I wouldn't want Cech to leave in this transfer window now the decision looks to have been made. I still think there's a trust issue here where Courtois is concerned and it might be a little foolish to let someone as good as Cech go until Courtois is bedded in, quietly getting on with the job at hand and shows his commitment to Chelsea demonstrating that his head won't be turned as soon as Real Madrid or another club lifts its skirts.

    Shouldn't you have quoted the source for this drivel? For a start, it's six years old. It's not relevant now, and arguably wasn't when someone - was it you? - wasted their time writing and publishing it.
