    Lukaku will win the UEFA Super Cup in a week's time. The redemption arc is already in place.
  2. Aston Villa 2 Chelsea 1

    I don't think we can juggle just yet, but we've got enough about us to home in on one single objective. Which we have next week.
  3. Aston Villa 2 Chelsea 1

    Our top League scorer has 7. Next season we need to blow teams away so we're not hamstrung by corrupt incompetent referees and fine margins.
  4. Aston Villa 2 Chelsea 1

    Thanks Spurs. And Joe Willock for shooting everyone around us down.

    Just on the VAR thing, I used to work for a company for IMG (they basically run Premier League Productions). I would be amazed if they were listening to Sky in the VAR hub. They would either be receiving just a clean feed, or an international/world feed with the designated PLP commentary team.

    Agree. People should know better by know, or at least see the signs. The papers aren't our friends and they'll be even less so now.

    Not buying any of this conveniently manufactured "big, bad Chelsea"/"toxic club" narrative and I can't believe people are parroting it. The reason why we are where we are is because a manager and his no.2 - with over 1000 games experience in midfield between them - couldn't set up one for toffee. And the ripple effect it had on our defence and attack meant we couldn't go toe to toe against any decent team. That's why we were on course for a 58 point finish, and that's why they're out of a job. GCSE Tactics.

    The media churn this kind of stuff out all the time and it usually passes without notice, but there can't be many players who would have been around both squads (now and 2015/16).

    A horrible day and it was always going to be so. I just wish he gave himself the best possible chance to succeed, but the decisions he made (both on and off the pitch) left him exposed to something like this, which no chance of outrunning it or shaking it off.
  10. Chelsea 3 Luton Town 1

    I know it was Luton but good to see something different today with the setup. Great third goal too. Wolves will be a proper checkpoint though, and the real test of Lampard's competency.

    We're walking the wrong way up an escalator and he doesn't even realise.
  12. Leicester City 2 Chelsea 0

    Gone well past worrying, it's now damaging.
  13. Leicester City 2 Chelsea 0

    Time to go. Nothing good will come from prolonging this.
  14. Leicester City 2 Chelsea 0

    This is dreadful. The players look befuddled and that's coming from clueless tactics and bad management. Absolutely no point continuing down this path.
  15. Chelsea 1 Manchester City 3

    Exactly this. This wasn't an episode of Ready Steady Cook, where some random has handed a £5 bag of ingredients to a chef and said "here's some shopping, cook with that".
