  1. Chelsea 2 Tottenham Hotspur 2

    As a one off game, I thought that the hard - although sometimes mistimed - challenges were refreshing to see. Football is a contact sport, play the game so. My point is that I enjoyed the game and the physical side was good to see but I obviously know that the guidelines that shackle the game have made that sort of game an rarity. The problem is that "guidelines" will always include interpretation. I liked JT's comments about not going silly by retrospectively banning people right left and centre but it is the FA's responsibility to look at Lamela and Dembele - those incidents had nothing to do with the actual football being played.
  2. Chelsea 2 Tottenham Hotspur 2

    Lamela and Dembele are both red cards, but to be honest I quite liked the physicality of the game last night - quite a throwback to how football used to be played. The inconsistency in how the referring changes from game to game will grate most but if the game was played like last night and reffed like that then that would be my preference rather than the namby pamby shite served up most weeks where a change of wind direction results in most players - ours included - falling over like that have been shot by a sniper. There is no place for what Lamela did to Fabregas or Dembele did to Costa but we have been guilty acts of similar in the past. The FA have a chance now to go someway to dispelling the myth that we are treated one way while everyone else are treated another. That should be the seasonover with for both Spurs players andPochettino should have some sort of touchline ban for entering the field of play - however noble his motives might (or might not) have been.

    What a shame that we do not know if RLC could be a great English midfielder because we never play him. Numerous people in here racking their brains and dredging up Gareth Barry as the barometer. This season has been over since December - RLC should have a dozen starts by now.If it was anyone else we'd be having a field day laughing at them.

    How about we show some faith in Traore as second striker and give the big ego from Sweden a massive swerve? Our boy isn't doing so badly with the opportunities that have come his way recently? How refreshing would that be?
  5. Transfer Talk Topic

    Complete contradiction - a player with such "huge confidence in his abilities to succeed" (I would have used 'arrogance') will not want to "start games here and there and come off the bench". I'm desperately clinging to the (dwindling) hope that the club do have a plan and strategy in spite of recent Falcao and Pato signings. But if Zlatan is the next name on that conveyor belt of stupidity then hope will have finally left town.
  6. Club announce new stadium plans

    The good thing about taste is that it is subjective - I find it fascinating the differences of opinion on things like aesthetics. What is beautiful to you might be the complete opposite to someone else. Like these images for example - if they are close to what Stamford Bridge might look like in the future it's my opinion thatour stadium would lookhorrific.

    Thanks Bob. Interesting reads - if true of course :)

    Not quite what I asked. Nevermind, doesn't matter.

    So is Conte to Chelsea as much of an open secret, done deal as what Pep to City was before their deadline day announcement?

    Bob, I think that it is fair to ask you to substantiate your answer. Is there a plan, to which you have said yes (and only 'yes'). What do you base your 'yes' answer on if you go on to say that you have no idea what is happening behind closed doors? Fair enough you might not be bugging the offices but if you are so sure that there is this plan you claim there is, why do you believe it so vehemently? No need to be a knob about it - you are just being asked to explain. You know as much as anyone else - or as little as anyone else - so why do you believe there is a plan when others can't see one?
  11. Pato arrives on loan

    Makes the move for Pato even more redundant.
  12. Pato arrives on loan

    Brilliant. So instead of that 'trial' consisting of some meaningful minutes in this new league we're pinning our hopes on the fact that he has trained well. Which he obviously hasn't because he hasn't made a match day squad yet. So what was the point? You're going to go apeshit when he ends up being a worse addition to the squad than Remy.
  13. Pato arrives on loan

    Ruled out - chalk another game off from those remaining. What was the effing point?

    You cop a lot of stick James when essentially you are just being a NewsNow feed but direct into this thread. I don't know why people keep getting on their soapbox about your posts, they aren't anywhere near as far-fetched as they used to be and to my mind this is just a copy and paste of a link into a thread discussing the next Chelsea manager. Fair enough I reckon. On this though, you mentioned Di Marzio - someone I have absolutely no knowledge of at all. Is he reliable as a journalist with his ear to the ground? Or is he a shite-monger like most in the English press? I don't hold too much stock in Twitter but if I did, who are the more reputable journo's to follow/read?

    Whoever is next in will not be buying 8 players. It'll be half that number if we're lucky.
