  1. Newcastle 1 Chelsea 2

    I've lived in Newcastle since September 2012, and in that time Chelsea have lost 4 and drawn one. On all but one of those occasions I was in the ground. The good news I am not at the game on Sunday and in fact I am not even in the city! So I will not be jinxing our team this year. 1-2 Chelsea!
  2. Huddersfield 0 Chelsea 3

    3-0 final score. Second half was much better than the first. I suspect the team will grow into the system. There are still a couple of defensive concerns that better teams will punish, but certainly a lot of positives to take from today.
  3. Huddersfield 0 Chelsea 3

    Second half play has been a little better. Still worried about our defence and final ball though.
  4. Huddersfield 0 Chelsea 3

    1-0! Good goal, Kante with a slightly fortunate finish but the move was very nice.
  5. Huddersfield 0 Chelsea 3

    Really pissed off that Hudson-Odoi is not even on the bench. As for Barkley, this is a pretty big opportunity for him tbf. I can't recall the last PL start he had other than Newcastle away last season.
  6. Chelsea 0 Manchester City 2

    Chill guys Danny Drinkwater will save us
  7. Chelsea 0 Manchester City 2

    It's clear to me the team has just not had enough time to transition to a completely different style of football. If the club is serious about changing and adopting "Sarriball", it's going to take a lot of time and patience. The problem is that's not something we're particularly known for (mind you, we've won plenty of trophies regardless)
  8. Chelsea 1 Arsenal 1 (Arsenal win 6-5 on penalties)

    RLC looked like he did his run-up through treacle.
  9. Caballero was poor but I thought at save at the end was excellent. I hope that boosts his confidence. CHO looks ready for me. Still think Abraham could do with another loan.
  10. I wonder how much Bakayoko's value is going down by each game...
  11. Conte at 0:10 and at 0:18 and 0:27
  12. I'm very late to the party with this too, but as a gay Chelsea fan I felt the need to comment. First off, fantastic post and I agree with every word. I feel that hiring Sarri now would send the absolute opposite message to LGBTQ Chelsea fans who the club have otherwise done very well to engage with recently. Chelsea Pride (mentioned earlier in this thread I believe) has been well-supported by the club and the main organiser was recently in Cobham to discuss various issues and initiatives with the club. However, contrary to the "ITK" rumour expressed in a previous post earlier in this thread, there is no concrete commitment from the club that Sarri would meet Chelsea Pride, or that he would offer any form of public or private apology. I vociferously oppose the appointment of Sarri for the reasons that you mentioned above. However, the chances of his homophobic comments preventing him getting the role seem to be very small. So if he is appointed the question would be what next? The club will have done enormous damage to itself in terms of PR and it will be widely criticised by pretty much every LGBT group. Furthermore, I suspect the press will have a field day digging up some of these quotes and this could become particularly problematic on Rainbow Laces weekend. But, far more importantly, it will really affect young LGBTQ fans who struggle to accept who they are and may live in somewhat prejudiced environments. For this reason, the club would need to make some very very solid commitments to outreach programmes, education and diversity training, which Sarri himself should be directly involved in. An apology would only be a start and I suspect most would agree that actions speak much more loudly than words. Needless to say, I'm deeply disappointed that the club seems to intend to appoint this individual. My fear is that he will be hired and his misdemeanours will be brushed under the carpet. However, on the plus side he probably won't be here for long.
  13. Barcelona 3 Chelsea 0

    There have been times we have been excellent, which seems bizarre given the score. But Courtois has had an absolute nightmare. At fault for two goals, arguably should have saved the second, and almost conceded a fourth by giving the ball away in the box inexplicably. Absolutely livid.
  14. Watford 4 Chelsea 1

    Does anyone else think Bakayoko might be our Ali Dia?
