  1. Time to give Willian some credit

    A great servant to the club and wish him all the best at Arse (except when they play us of course). Thought his best years were behind him when he faded under Sarri (naturally as did most of our players bar Hazard) but he improved leaps under Frank and was pivotal for us this year. I suppose Ziyech is his direct replacements so we will see an improvement in the numbers of goals/assists but I doubt he will get anywhere close to the work rate of Willian.

    Thank goodness that's over. Onward to next season and hopefully a more dangerous and defensively tight team. Werner and Ziyech will add much of what we're missing at the moment, finishing and creativity. We also need to fix our defensive issues and possibly look at hiring a defensive coach. Frank has gotten the best out of so many players this season. Azpi, Willian, Jorginho, Giroud, Barkley and especially Kovacic have improved from last year's tepid performances under the perennial loser Sarri. Our refreshingly direct style of play from Frank has been a breath of fresh air in contrast to the thoroughly dull affair that was "Sarriball". Mount, Tammy and James have pushed their way into the team thanks to the management giving our youth a chance, something we would never have dreamt of happening under previous managers. We also have a settled (and hopefully inujry free) Pulisic to look forward to next season. With a new keeper and CB we could be challenging for titles, but we need to temper our expectations for next year regardless of what happens over the transfer window. Personally I would be fine with another trophyless season so long as we see clear signs of progress in all areas, not just attack (as woule be expected with the addition of quality players like TW & Ziyech).

    A poor season at Juve from Sarri. Losing the Italian cup final to Napoli and being eliminated in CL by Lyon despite the massive gulf in quality. Winning Serie A with the squad that Juve possess is not impressive at all. Frank may have made some blunders but I shudder to think where we would have been this season with Sarri at the helm. Wouldn't be surprised if he's sacked before start of next season.

    We've been poor today but the ref more than played his part. Disgusting and I hope Frank doesn't hold back
  5. Frank Lampard Appointed Chelsea Head Coach

    A weak bench was a constant feature of that 06-10 squad. After we got Ballack and Sheva we spent the next couple of seasons penny pinching and buying a load of dross mainly to sit on the bench. That's why Torres' transfer was so exciting after years of Ben Haim's and Sidwells and Pizzaros. There were exceptions of course like Anelka but I remember not being excited with our transfer business for years until the AVB season when the club finally decided to start the rebuild.

    I've warmed to Declan Rice and would be happy with bringing him in only if we can offload Christiensen first, and play Rice as a CB and not midfield since we are already well stocked in that department. If he's bought in as a 'replacement' for Jorginho to play DM/regista role then it will be disappointing and self-defeating move from the club. Yes Rice can provide leadership in midfield but so can Jorginho. Where we actually need a leader/organizer is in defense. Chillwell on the other hand I still maintain is overrated and not worth 40million, let alone the 80+ that Leicester would want.

    GET INNN Well done Frank and the team. What an incredible first season for him (regardless of what happens in the final). Need to work on our defense and goalkeeping issues for next season but its not a bad start at all.

    No one ever claimed this. This was just a strawman you made up to argue against after you gleefully bet against one of our own players (saying he wouldn't start more than 4 games for the rest of the season with everyone fit) and were left with copious amounts of egg on your face. All we said was he was playing brilliant early-mid season alongside Jorginho in midfield which triggered you and still seems to trigger you.

    Anyone else notice Lamps shouting something towards Klopp's direction after the Kovacic "foul"?
  10. Manchester United 1 Chelsea 3

    No better feeling in the world than beating Utd. So glad we paid them back for the defeats they gave us

    Not much more to be said that hasn't already been covered here, but Tammy REALLY needs to learn to stay on his feet and stop the incessant flailing, slipping and sliding. It seems he can hardly pass the ball without falling over one way or another. I would understand if he was an 18 year old that had just undergone a growth spurt and was getting used to things but Tammy has had the same physique for years. There's simply no excuse for having such poor awareness and control of your own body as a professional athlete.

    Kovacic is out for the next two games so we should finally be seeing Jorginho again. If he's still passed over in favour of someone else I think it means he's off in the summer, possibly to raise money for the Chilwell deal

    Abu Dhabi still has a formidable foreign reserve that they can tap into, not counting the massive private family wealth of the Nahyans of which Mansour is a senior member. I don't think the oil prices will be making a pauper out of them anytime soon unfortunately. Qatar and PSG won't be bothered about the oil market too much since majority of Qatar's wealth comes from natural gas (no idea where the LNG markets are these days but assuming its not as bad as crude oil)

    Meanwhile in Italy Sarri loses another final, this time to his former club. Must feel like a bitter blow. The pressure to win the league is now even greater for him
