  1. John Terry

    Well done JT. I think he will make a great number 2. Really happy he has stayed in the game.
  2. Eden Hazard

    yes. The tragic thing about last season is if Conte had gone in January (either sacked or resigned) rather than that death by a thousand cuts, I believed the air would have been cleared of those toxic clouds and we would more than likely have made top four. If that had happened Hazard would have been less twitchy. We are a big club, a huge club and we cannot be waving an FA Cup around as if it saved our season. it aint enough for Chelsea or our big players.
  3. Eden Hazard

    I could be wrong, but I think had we bought Kepa in the Jan window we would have got him for about 15 mill, but then he signed a new contract and he cost us 71 mill a few months later. If we had known Courtois was offski in Jan we would be have gone in for Kepa then maybe.
  4. Eden Hazard

    If you read the Spanish comments on that blog (I do speak a bit of Spanish so I certainly got the jist) they are none to happy about Courtois role in that goal. He did get a hand to it but he was completely out of position.....and to make it worse it was in the 94th minute so no time to recover.
  5. Andreas Christensen

    Well that's why he wants to leave apparently. Phrases like "I'm 22 now and I want to be playing football" mean if I'm not first choice here I will probably be somewhere else. And he played plenty last season....more than he could ever have imagined at the start of the season. The fact remains that Conte dropped him and Sarri doesn't seem to want to pick him. Maybe you should turn your cross hairs towards the coaches?
  6. Andreas Christensen

    Well it was the combo that turned the season on its head and won us the title...or maybe that was more down to Alonso and Moses?
  7. Andreas Christensen

    It would be insane to get rid of him, but equally insane to say he's the finished article and his request to be reinstated in our back four should be complied with forthwith. Nobody is saying he's rubbish but if you can't see that he was often out of his depth last season when he replaced Luiz , then you are not looking at his performances closely enough. His time will come, but this season may not be it. Hardly an earth shattering opinion.
  8. Andreas Christensen

    I really like him and I'm sure it won't be long before he is irreplaceable but I don't think he's quite yet the finished article in a back four. He was superb in our 3. Dave, Luiz and Ruddy was a great combo.
  9. and its easy not to like Mourinho (and I try that sometimes) but I still do. If only he could now and again give a chuckle to the world that surrounds him he would be golden.
  10. Andreas Christensen

    I would expect him to be unhappy about not playing but equally, if I was him, I'd be unhappy with myself for some very very poor performances last season. And hold on a cotton pickin' minute, we are barely 8/9 games into our season so I would button it at the moment Andreas. Conte dropped Luiz for spite and threw AC in at the deep end. Sadly it was too deep for him but he now needs to take a step back and take a good look at what's around him. Cahill is probably off, Luiz is no spring chicken and plays way better in a 3, Rudiger is good but not irreplaceable, Ampedu is 17. Get your head down mate and wait your're at one of the biggest clubs in the world.

    I have a problem when he speaks with a thick scouse accent in interviews but apart from that I can see potential. I def think he has more of a football brain than people give him credit for. I look forward to the day when he becomes our little scouser :)
  12. Southampton 0 Chelsea 3

    But it reminds me of my days on the terraces , a bit pissed, eating a pie while laughing at the idiot behind me whose saying something like "how can someone on 20 grand a week not hit the target from 6 yards the useless pile of shite". The MDF should be a recreation of that without someone reminding you that two weeks ago you said that that player walked on water and could bear your child.
  13. Eden Hazard

    ^ and I would add, openly saying how great it would be if Eden joined Madrid and that he should come over from the dark side (or pretty much words to that effect). Can players actually say those things? If we were Man United for instance that sort blatant coaxing could affect club share prices. The thing is a world class player like Eden wants to win the games top prizes and play in the biggest tournaments. I totally get that. I also think he enjoys playing for us now and is settled here. We as a club need to look like we are heading in the right direction, and not only qualify for the CL but have a realistic of winning it again. If we can do that, we have a chance of keeping him. We need to make a statement in the next window and buy a top forward.
  14. Eden Hazard

    I think we all know the difference between these two humans. And by the way, nice to see Courtois making a bit of a hash of things in latest Real defeat. Stay where you are Eden, you know it makes sense!
  15. Southampton 0 Chelsea 3

    I honestly think that while a match is in progress we all say rubbish or get upset at xyz and it should mostly be ignored until everyone has calmed down. In the past we had a match thread just for the match itself which I think was better. Everyone could let off steam and talk shite but when the game ended that thread closed and a post match thread started. Probably a lack of mods has put paid to that but it was a better system imo.
