  1. Transfer Talk Topic

    If we're interested then it would make sense to go for him (Dunk) before Leeds make a move for Ben White.
  2. Arsenal 2 Chelsea 1

    That's shocking. I didn't even remember it was him in charge for half of those. Someone needs to make a compilation of all of those decisions, stick some sinister drone underneath, and let Chelsea Twitter do the rest.
  3. Arsenal 2 Chelsea 1

    I do hope so. Simply not good enough and never has been.
  4. Official: Chelsea Sign Kepa Arrizabalaga

    I'm at a loss to describe what's going on with Kepa. A lot of things point to a problem with eyesight, but I'm sure the club would be on top of that sort of thing (although they weren't with Cech, but that was a different era).
  5. Official: Chelsea Sign Kepa Arrizabalaga

    What you're practically saying is: Alisson Oblak De Gea Ederson ter Stegen Neuer (6ft 3 ¾) And going back a bit... Buffon Casillas Peter Schmeichel Pagliuca Peruzzi Oliver Kahn
  6. Taking The Pee Out Of Liverpool (For Khobar)

    I don't think his job is in danger at all, but I think the quality of signings over the quality of management will dig us out of trouble next season. On that note (seeing this is a Liverpool thread), I think they'll fall into the trap of buying squad players and not bonafide stars to challenge their front three, and it will lead to their downfall.
  7. West Ham United 3 Chelsea 2

    Useless defending. If we pull this out of the fire then it's our best result of the season.
  8. New Kits

    Looks good. I'd probably buy it. I didn't really like the 19/20 home shirt when it first came out (and I'm one of those monsters who *likes* red on our kits), but it's grown on me.
  9. Favourite Chelsea Matches

    Wouldn't say deserved, but the 98/99 season kind of conspired against us. Alongside the Laudrup and Casiraghi situations (and the Poyet injury), the real hammer blow was playing Thursday/Sunday football in April - we simply couldn't cope, drew a shed load of games against teams we should have beaten and ended up throwing away our chance of League. And then we still went out of the Cup Winners Cup. Chelsea 2 Leicester 2 is a definite contender for least favourite Chelsea match.
  10. Favourite Chelsea Matches

    Glad the 1-3 at Anfield in 2009 was mentioned, it felt like the night we burst the Another Special European Night at AnfieldTM bubble. They couldn't hold a candle to us after that tie for a good few seasons. Have to throw in last year's Europa League final, just because we blew Arsenal away in the second half. Virtually all of our Cup Final wins have been reasonably close affairs, so that one (give the opposition as well) was that little bit more enjoyable.
  11. Favourite Chelsea Matches

    Favourite Chelsea defeat (if such a thing is even possible).
  12. Chelsea 2 Liverpool 0

    I'd play Kepa. If he's feeling aggrieved over recent events, then it's on him to prove that he can actually go out there and stop shots.
  13. Chelsea 2 Tottenham Hotspur 1

    Deserved win. Hopefully every official today gets swept into a sh*tstorm.
  14. Chelsea 2 Tottenham Hotspur 1

    If the name Batshuayi features amongst the first XI when the team news is announced at 11.30am, it would speak volumes and I genuinely think we should write off a top four finish there and then.
  15. Transfer Talk Topic

    Really pleased with this signing - great price for a hugely talented player who is the right sort of age, and still has the hunger to make a big name for himself in football.
