    Try telling anyone that was in Munich that Garry Cahill was average and see what sort of response you get. As you say a wonderful defender and club servant that will rightly go down in our clubs history as a legend

    I like this. You seem to be one of the most unbiased posters on here and if I recall rightly were not overly keen on Sarri at one point but didn't jump the gun calling for him to be sacked after a few games or within 6 months. My feelings are pretyy much exactly the same as yours, unfortunately I can't make any comment regarding this season without being called a Sarri fan boy, which I've said numerous times I'm not but they don't listen, so hopefully some will read this and take it on board. I think it sums up our current situation perfectly.

    Not sure I follow you Kev. Is it because I don't hold the same opinion as the vast majority that I am the one being influenced? Seems a bit backwards to me. Go for it. Please.
  4. Best post I have read on here in a long time. Sums up more or less everything I have been all season and I agree with pretty much every word.

    He hasn't abandoned the system at all, it's just two posters who have slowly been proved more and more wrong as the season progresses trying to find anything to have a moan about.

    I dnot understand it either. Loftus cheek 1423 minutes Christensen 1750 minutes CHO 1067 minutes Plenty of game time for all 3.

    Nice one Paul, that video will do absolutely nothing to sway those that have already made up their minds though. The most interesting part is the second half where it details how he dictates play. Its something I picked up on very early after watching him live for the first time and made a point of it on here. I think those not as fortunate to go very often will miss a lot of this but he really does does orchestrate the whole team, in terms of telling them where to go, who to pass to, when to press, when to hold, when to speed it up etc. He is constantly telling everyone what to do but unfortunately it goes unnoticed by most.

    Maybe or maybe he gets a better package as there will be no transfer fee involved. Well yes, everything about him possibly being kept if our ban is upheld for this summer is almost certainly irrelevant as I think there is very little doubt we will be able to buy in the next window.

    And I'm sure that's what they would tell him, however if he did stay this year and left on a free the following season I very much doubt they would turn him down if he still wanted to go there. Maybe I'm naive but I really don't think he will leave if the transfer ban is upheld and we are unable to replace him this window.
  11. Transfer Talk Topic

    Agree with all this. If we can buy players this summer Hazard can leave, I wouldn't begrudge him one bit. But if the ban is upheld and we can't bring in anybody he should be told he has to stay and can leave on a free the following summer. I actually think he would fully understand and be fairly ok with it.

    And this is why no one bothers answering your question. He was very good last night, so much so that those around me who have given him a lot of stick recently were raving about him, and you just say 'I disagree' so it's a completely pointless discussion.
  13. Chelsea 2 West Ham United 0

    Something that he has clearly worked on and deserves credit for. It's not surprising he struggled with the pace and physicality of the league when he first arrived but unfortunately a lot of put fans are not willing to give anyone any time to prove themselves here.

    While I thought we played pretty good in comparison to some of the mind-numbing performances we've served up, we were still largely relianent on individual brilliance to get the result. No, didn't miss it. That's praise is it?
  15. Chelsea 2 West Ham United 0

    Completely and utterly pointless discussion. It's funny though that it's all you seem to go on about now, obviously nothing else to moan about. There will always be a player or two in a team that some fans don't rate, why do you have to go on and on and on and on about it? You don't rate him, no one cares.
  16. Chelsea 2 West Ham United 0

    CHO was poor last night. If it hadn't been for one of the best individual performances I have ever seen from Hazard, and it was a genuine privilege to witness that in the flesh last night, Jorginho would have been man of the match. We as a team were very, very good. Absolutely battered them and could and should have scored a lot more, which is the only negative, yet your still not happy. I could have laid money on you, Rod and Celery moaning about last night. You never disappoint.

    Sarri out.
  18. Everton 2 Chelsea 0

    Yes, I agree, I should have worded it better.
  19. Everton 2 Chelsea 0

    Obviously not Paul. All the talk if us being utterly useless, Kante being played out of position, unhappy players wanting to leave, lack of rotation, CHO not getting enough time and everything else Kev and others have constantly moaned about all season has died a death and rightly so. There really is very little to moan about right now, hence the lack of a sensible answer.
  20. Everton 2 Chelsea 0

    Did you expect us to win the league this year then? Explains a lot if you did.
  21. Everton 2 Chelsea 0

    The whole season doesnt look bad now. Level on points with 4th and one point behind 3rd with 6 games left. We also a very good chance of reaching the Europa league final. Not bad when you consider we have had a horrendous season with a clueless bufoon for a manager.
  22. Transfer Talk Topic

    Kante didn't play as a typical dm for France, he was all over the pitch, much like he has played 99% of his career since he came to England. The other 1% was the 8 or so games he played as a proper dm at the beginning of Contes first season, sitting in front of the back four in a 4141. EVERYBODY moaned he was being wasted and didn't want to see him there. Him being played out of position has been the most ludicrous criticism thrown at Sarri all season, and that's saying something. A myth created by the media that an awful lot of fans bought into.
  23. Chelsea 3 Brighton & Hove Albion 0

    This was the biggest difference for me. I thought he was superb and my man of the match. Certainly he's better than Barkley and Kovacic in that role. I thought he did ok, brilliant goal, worked hard and kept the ball well. He really needs to take his chance now though, he will never have a better chance of becoming a first team regular for us than right now. Kante was just, well Kante. he's was brilliant, as he has been all season. Funny I can't remember the last time anyone mentioned he was being played out of position. Gone very quiet on that front.

    Oh dear. You used to at least have a reasonable debate, now you just talk rubbish and throw insults at people. You can crack on with the insults, someone that insults me from behind a keyboard is not going to get me to retaliate and get into such childish games, but please stop spouting the rubbish you keep coming out with. Please.
  25. Chelsea 3 Brighton & Hove Albion 0

    Because we do not have one of the best 4 squads in the league. And we finished 5th last season. Quite simple really. Our performances haven't dipped, we are on course for a better points total than last season. That's called an improvement no matter what you like to think. Rubbish. We are in this battle for top 4 because that's as good as we are. Just utter, utter nonsense.
