  1. Chelsea vs Aston Villa

    Not for me to second guess TT but would be happy to see our real #9 rested....I don't want Chelsea to get so reliant on him that if for any reason he is unavailable there is no plan B to cover and this is as good a game as ever to tweak things...Kepa to play as we need him to back to a semblance of form as a solid backup or replacement if disaster strikes. Hate to see Chelsea lose any game but this is very low down on the priority list...next weekend is a real marker game.
  2. R.I.P. Tributes

    Makes sense....only thing I would add is there are greats in the game from other clubs who gave and have given us a lot of football joy...can they be included?
  3. Agree with the Kepa observations...I think AC can be included in the player motivation view point....looks a different player from the one we knew could play but never seemed to believe in himself...bit like Kepa as his confidence just drained away...TT seems to have a touch... Yesterday Kepa came out for a high cross to his right towards the front of the box...wouldn't have done that successfully a while back....good to see.....

    And have a wide horizon and an aged..as in wine and good advice.....sense of the subtle and fine things available!!!!
  5. Tottenham Hotspur 0 Chelsea 3

    Didn"t see that coming!!....( Did actually as he left here and returned there I understand on crutches)

    No argument from me MT..I'm just amazed that anyone on here knew who I was talking about let alone actually appreciated the man's amazing talent. I was "told" that the original art of Flamenco was in the vocal rendition and had it demonstrated one time in a very real Andaluce gathering....only as a comment and not as a fact...just what I was told. Great result today...I do dislike That Lot....goes back to schooldays and the "hanger on" kids who couldn't play the game but gave us s*** about "That Lot"...only to fade away as the years caught up!
  7. Non Chelsea: Premier League

    After disagreeing with Droy regarding last weeks RC I have to say I agree absolutely with this week's first var issue or at least the Walker incident... how a player can tackle from the iffy side/behind area...not touch the ball and take down an attacker and it's the attackers fault?...no question of the attacker crossing the defender and going to ground.....the more things change..with var the more they stay the same.... I fear for todays game in the Chelsea penalty area!!
  8. Tottenham Hotspur 0 Chelsea 3

    Hey,,good to see you back if only briefly NB...... Silence Ain't Golden mate.
  9. Jimmy Greaves RIP

    Thank you Greavsie.... I had older true Chelsea supporting friends who would go the WHL just to watch Jimmy...as good a tribute as I can think of.

    Ronda is a funny town back up from the coast near Estapona.....visited a time or two..has "it's claimed" the oldest Bull Ring in Spain.....my link ('ish),,,,raised hairs on the back of my neck at the concert,,,the same reaction walking out into the open Bull Ring...museum on site.... Little Hands of Silver....have some classical Spanish guitar Cd's but none of his.....have you seen the live concert of Segovia playing at the Alhambra in Granada? When the dust settles after the game today I'll go through my Cd collection and note the "eccentric" corner...wonder if there are other shared not necessarily main stream occupants! And the road to Ronda is , or was, an "interesting" one. A classic Hotel there ..I think..memory a bit fuzzy...Churchill stayed there but could be wrong..a "sister" classic Hotel in Algerciras.... what trivia we collect as the journey progresses! Mrs C enjoying "My Life Is Murder"..(Melbourne?)...me not so much but ok.

    Albert Hall......saw 007 playing in a charity tennis thingy there....Manitas de Plata....and performed myself in front of a full house...two showings!

    DM,,,,Penny or more for your thoughts Mr Clattenburg...we'll print it...... ALMOST ruined?....still doesn't balance out the games he ruined.........wish old referees would do the same as old soldiers...just fade away.

    Thank goodness for that...would have been too weird!....Another "regular: and I were 25 yards apart at OT for the Leeds clash...that was funny enough...
  14. Khobar's Legacy

    OK..seems yet another apology from me...this will probably be something of a rambling post! Quite by serendipity I was reading through match day forum posts just before "Demba Ba" day.....some incredibly accurate posts and some classic Khobar posts....a voice much missed... for Khobar as I really think he would smile... So today I found myself watching the Newcastle/Leeds game....most of the first half I was urging Leeds on...not a great Newcastle fan and Bruce I have little time or sympathy for ....anyway my true instincts kicked in and I swayed a little towards Newcastle before finally realising I really didn't care.....having played IN Newcastle a couple of times the Geordie "Us really tough Geordies against you soft Southerners" gets old after about 10 minutes. From there I drifted back to the Dark Ages and amid wonder and awe at the sheer pace in every sense of the word and the skill levels at present plus the ever changing game I thought about the eccentricities of my younger days watching top level football... Mainly the somewhat distrustful attitude of most fans regarding a naturally left footed left winger..and to a slightly lesser extent the left footed left back...such absolutes in positions no longer exist and I had a gentle wander back.... I of course remember Frankie ..open the gates...Blunstone...a much loved if flinchingly watched Chelsea LW. Right Wingers and Right Backs were stalwarts and respected as such unlike the maverick left sided equivalents who no one on the terraces could quite come to terms with or feel easy about......" Not To Be Trusted" came with the #3 and #11 shirt.....then the Neanderthal Centre Forward #9 and his equally Neanderthal #5......images of Mountain Sheep here butting heads with no visible reactions......names long gone but in their time awesome deliverers of mayhem and beloved on the terrace as they raced for that classic long ball and the inevitable epic collision or the cross from the wing with the equally Titanic collision.....Ahh...those were days my friend.. Todays elite are indeed unbelievable in what the serve us up with on match day but sometimes at night..when I hear the wind......a smile and a salute... So..a quiet tribute to a real Chelsea Faithful,,Thank You Khobar

    Albert Hall...hmm...do remember something from there....an old friend of mine...sadly passed last year...met my gf and me outside but his gf cried off at the last minute,,,forget why...so he had a spare ticket.....passed it on to a guy...maybe sold it...loooong time ago....not you MT?......smile..... Was at a cinema...that's all I remember really except second time a fill in bass player (think bass).!
