  1. Chelsea 2 Crystal Palace 0

    Those yellows all came within about 10 minutes of play,, all soft, one after another. Then palace commit a very similar foul and nothing. But then look who the ref is, he’s setting us up for a sending off or two second half. Il will be amazed if we don’t have a player sent off today.
  2. Watford 1 Chelsea 2

    That’s how I feel, it absolutely killing the enjoyment. It was one thing watching bent refs for years, but this had taken it to a whole other level. The whole game feels bent now,.
  3. VAR and Chelsea

    Neither was a penalty.
  4. Watford 1 Chelsea 2

    VAR wins again. Absolutely ruining the game, the decisions are based on the team playing, they make it up as they go along, it all depends on the team who will benefit or lose out. Every week!!

  6. Watford 1 Chelsea 2

    How is that not a foul on Emerson? Right in front of the ref as well.
  7. VAR and Chelsea

    Except when it’s Chelsea. Using your logic CHO would have got the penalty, but didn’t, which is exactly the point. Apply some common sense, you say that when discussing VAR 😂

    Foster has a nasty habit of having his absolute best performances against us, frustrating.
  9. VAR and Chelsea

    He is a serial cheater, I never liked him even when he was at Southampton as he often took a dive. VAR was supposedly brought in to stop this very thing, prevent players like that getting away with it. It seems the most important and influential detail is the badge on the players shirt.
  10. VAR and Chelsea

    That's exactly whats happening, VAR has allowed the total management of penalties awarded and goals being allowed or ruled out. With that level of control games can be decided on the VAR officials opinion very easily. It might not be so influential if a score line is 4-0, but as we saw with the Norwich away game it can turn a game that one side should be winning comfortably into a far more competitive affair. And in tight games it's crucial as will often decide the destination of the points. As you say, the media then wheel out ex referee's and biased pundits who then spend hours justifying these decisions and the behaviour of certain teams players, just so we are all clear there is no foul play. I'm wondering what it will take for them to criticise a VAR decision? I actually know the answer to that, when Chelsea benefit from something over a 'favoured' team.
  11. VAR and Chelsea

    As I said I do agree with the decision today, it wasn’t a penalty for me after seeing the replays. My issue is we saw a very similar situation only a couple of weeks ago when a particular team needed to keep their winning run going, and they were treated differently. The penalty was never going to be overturned given the circumstances and that can’t be right surely? With VAR we are seeing there really are two sets of rules depending on the team involved in the decision. And it allows even greater control to make those decisions. If they don’t want to give a goal they can hunt for the excuse not to give it, for example a foul or offside leading up to it, no matter how far back in the play, the rules seem to change to fit the argument each week. We have suffered from both those scenarios each already this season. If they want the goal given they just don’t bother looking. I think someone mentioned there was a foul leading up to one of Burnley’s goals yesterday. As long as certain teams continually benefit from VAR decisions those suspicions will be there. Do you honestly think we would see a VAR performance like we had to suffer at Norwich away with a certain team in red? Never.
  12. VAR and Chelsea

    So yet another VAR decision goes against us today, the ref gives a penalty and the decision is overturned. Watching the replays I don’t think it is a penalty. What’s frustrating is we have seen the exact same thing go the other way in other recent games, when it happens to be a certain team in red that will gain two points. No consistency in the decisions at all, with various reasons given each week to back up what ever outcome they see fit. I can guarantee now that we will see a softer penalty than today’s given very soon to a certain team, yet it won’t be overturned by VAR and the excuse will be there was the slightest of touches. Thankfully it didn’t cost us today.
  13. Ajax 0 Chelsea 1

    Just got in and seen the result on here, what a brilliant result!! To be honest I wasn’t expecting too much from tonight but sounds like we did really well. Loving this season!!
  14. Frank Lampard Appointed Chelsea Head Coach

    Welcome home Frank!! Very excited about this but trying to be realistic as well, I'm just hoping Frank gets a solid first season under his belt without too many issues, establish something he can build on.
  15. Taking The Pee Out Of Liverpool (For Khobar)

    All I can say today is a big thank you to Man City, they put in an incredible run and saved us all from a torturous summer of hearing how the bin dippers are the greatest prem team ever. We will still have to put up with the champions league nonsense, but hey they’ve been ramming that down our throats for 30 plus years, 5 or 6 makes no difference and changes nothing. Them winning the prem changes everything and yet again they’ve been left heart broken, good stuff and long may it continue...
