    I'll close the poll the day after the final, so if you haven't voted you still have time.
  2. Charity 5-a-side tournament

    Not sure where to put this, so please move if it needs to go somewhere else (also want to make sure it gets seen though). I've organised a 5-a-side football tournament for charity (Shooting Star Chase) and specifically for Team Elsie, which is a large group of us who have so far raised an amazing £79,000+ through various events etc, all for this wonderful charity. More details about the fundraising efforts for Team Elsie are here: https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/elsieviolet. Holly, is one of my good friends and it was sadly her little girl, Elsie, who passed away and so that's why I have set up this tournament. The tournament is happening on 31st August in Bletchnigley, Redhill and it's just £5 per player (you can have 1 sub or just come as a 5, if you're fit enough!). I'm on the hunt for as many teams as possible so that we can raise as much money as possible and make the tournament as competitive as we can. So if anyone fancies it and thinks they could get a team together, please let me know and I'll send you on the full details. Also, if anyone knows of anywhere else that it's worth me posting the details, that would be handy as well. Thanks!
  3. Guys, if we had a different manager this season, with exactly the same squad, what do you honestly think the outcome would have been? Is this squad better than 3rd (behind this City and team and this Liverpool team), if not are they good enough to be closer to the clubs and by how much? Should this squad have won one of the domestic cups?
  4. Leicester City 0 Chelsea 0

    You are probably right and it's just ridiculous - surely the club was confident of us making the final of EL and therefore knew how much of an impact having this fixture at this time would make. Sadly, the advantage to Arsenal at this point
  5. Leicester City 0 Chelsea 0

    Decent rest time between now and the EL final, presuming Sarri doesn't take first-team players out to the US (honestly, what an awful move by the club to set up that game!!). We must finish above Spurs and I think we will regardless as I expect them to drop points again. Kante is not fit for this and RLC and Christensen are doubts and I would expect they'll be left on the bench as a precaution. Kepa Zappa Azpi Luiz Alonso Kovacic Jorginho Barkley Willian Higuain Hazard Subs: Caballero, Christensen, Cahill, Emerson, RLC, Pedro, Giroud
  6. Taking The Pee Out Of Liverpool (For Khobar)

    Ah... and that is where the similarities end sadly.
  7. Taking The Pee Out Of Liverpool (For Khobar)

    It sounds like we may be at the same wedding. My good mate, a Palace fan, is getting married on the day of the Champions League final, with plenty of football supporting mates going (including Liverpool and Spurs fans)... might be a very small world.
  8. Chelsea 1 Eintracht Frankfurt 1 (Chelsea win on penalties)

    Suddenly games have so much pressure attached to them, which is nice! I see nothing but a Chelsea win here - they looked exhausted in the second half of the first leg, so for me it is just a case of us controlling the game and taking a couple of our chances. Team picks itself for me: Kepa Azpi Christensen Luiz Emerson Kovacic Jorginho RLC Willian Giroud Hazard Subs: Caballero, Cahill, Alonso, Zappacosta, Barkley, Pedro, Higuain
  9. Chelsea 3 Watford 0

    At the start of the season, many on here would have been delighted with a Domestic Cup final, a Europa League Final and 3rd place... that would have been a very good season for this squad, with a manager new to this league. Yet somehow, many are still not happy. I haven't been Sarri's biggest fan this season and I massively doubted him earlier this year, but he has steered us to top 4 (possibly a 3rd place finish ahead of a Spurs side many have lauded all season for being a great side) and potentially a European final whilst he has been getting used to this league, these players and this country - he's got us in to this position even though we've had some really rough patches - rough patches that he no doubt played his part in creating, but also he then played his part in getting us through. It hasn't always been pretty and Sarri may not be the media polished manager that so many people love, but you can't argue with the fact that this season, he has got the job done and possibly even exceeded his brief and for that, for me, he deserves to stay and have a go in the CL and a full pre-season and (hopefully) a full summer transfer window. As for the Conte talk, I said it before he joined, I said it whilst he was here and I've said it since... great manager, horrible person and that is why I think he ended up in the position he did. Made far too many enemies within the club and it made his position untenable. Finally, thank you and goodbye to Gary Cahill - no idea why he gets so much stick, an incredible servant to this club who has won everything and at times has been an absolute rock at the back.

    Good to hear! Have had a really good response again this year
  11. Eintracht Frankfurt 1 Chelsea 1

    Won't be an easy game this, so feel we need a strong side (but obviously still with one eye on a very important game on Sunday... tricky. For me I would plan the next two games like this: v Frankfurt Kepa Azpi Christensen Luiz Emerson Kante Jorginho Barkley Pedro Giroud Hazard Subs: Caballero, Cahill, Zappacosta, Kovacic, RLC, Willian, Higuain v Watford Kepa Azpi Christensen Luiz Alonso Kante Jorginho RLC Willian Giroud Hazard Subs: Caballero, Cahill, Zappacosta, Kovacic, Barkley, Pedro, Higuain
  12. New Kits

    It looks like a fake kit you used to buy abroad in the 90s... yuck!
  13. Manchester United 1 Chelsea 1

    With this Arsenal result, this game has just got even more important for us - a win and we have one foot very much in the top 4. Which worries me, because whenever this has happened this season, we've bottled it!
  14. CFCnet 18/19 Awards

    Argh! I knew I had forgotten one! Might have a few 'other' votes in that category!
  15. Manchester United 1 Chelsea 1

    If Kante is injured, that's a massive blow. Nobody can replace him in our team and especially in this game where I expect us to try and play more on the counter. If he is fit, this is who I'd pick: Kepa Azpi Rudiger Luiz Emerson Kante Jorginho RLC Willian Higuain Hazard Subs: Caballero, Christensen, Zappacosta, Barkley, Kovacic, Pedro, Giroud
