    Sarri deserves another crack next season for me. Hopefully with a full pre-season we will be better.
  3. Eintracht Frankfurt 1 Chelsea 1

    I agree abut the Spurs crash post City and thought they failed miserably in the league yet they have re-written the script in the CL or at least given themselves an unexpected chance.
  4. Chelsea 3 Watford 0

    I'm still not convinced yet think he deserves a chance for next season with a full preseason and then we see how it goes. This makes even more sense if we have a transfer ban. If our peers Arse, Spurs, Utd were much better this might have had a different outcome yet seeing as it has turned out this way think by default he deserves longer stay to have a go. Positives this season, more comfortable playing out from the back, successful introduction of younger players in RLC and Odoi. Not the greatest season yet with the modest means at his disposal relative to our peers think he has done ok.
  5. Manchester United 1 Chelsea 1

    Spurs did well to limit that to a single goal deficit, get a couple of players back and they may well progress to a final.
  6. Eintracht Frankfurt 1 Chelsea 1

    I think you are right that some of our players are more interested in the EL cup rather than grafting in the EPL and there is a real risk that even if we get to the EL final we may not even win it.
  7. Manchester United 1 Chelsea 1

    Seemed to me the ref might have let that go except Hazard made probably his best move of the day kicking the ball out while pointing at Willian to get the play halted. I thought Hazard looked disinterested was this because RM looms or just because he thought the ref was not giving anything against some vicious challenges?
  8. Manchester United 1 Chelsea 1

    Conte rested Hazard in a semi against Spurs........ so I would say a tactic rather than madness.
  9. Manchester United 1 Chelsea 1

    Personally would rest Hazard first half for this one and play Willian against Young. A big miss if Kante is injured and would suggest Kovacic will play. I would also start Barkley over RLC. Assuming we are still in the game at HT then look to bring on Hazard and RLC around 55mins to address 2nd half sluggishness and turn the tide. By resting Hazard until HT he does not get kicked from pillar to post and hopefully Young will be on a yellow when Hazard tries his trickery.
  10. Eden Hazard

    I saw a part of the Premier League last night show and they were reviewing the names for the PFA payer of the season and Gary Lineker commenting on Hazard said he was the only one in the six contenders not playing for the big two clubs that made up the rest of the nominees. He saw this as a big achievement when the season was so dominated by City and Liverpool. The consensus for the award was either Van Djik or Sterling.
  11. Eden Hazard

    I expect him to go yet have not heard anything concrete, assuming you are correct I think he will want to perform on the big events to give his new potential admirers something to get excited about. Not much bigger stadiums in UK than OT and a meaningful match too.
  12. Manchester United 1 Chelsea 1

    Interesting match against Utd in prospect. Both teams not playing well and Utd needing the more points more than Chelsea. Chelsea have had more time to prepare. We need to be careful, Utd had early chances against both Everton and City yet didn't take them. They also closed down Kompany yesterday until they conceded anyway. I think we could get three points, or a draw or even beaten. It is that close.
  13. Media / Press

    I'm with Ham from what I recall at the time with regards the lip readers. I notice the media slightly moved to the story from not being about Sterling being racially abused to just talking about the abuse of Sterling. There was a subtle shift in the wording yet still painting CFC fans as nasty abusing brutes. I agree another fan might have racially abused Sterling as a number had open mouths and am not aware of any lip reading analysis being done on them. As regards the media targeting Sterling, I think that Kalashnikov tattoo on his leg was a very silly move. Drug gangs here don't use Kalashnikovs they use other weapons. Why did he pick the weapon used mainly by Islamic terror groups? I think he is a confused opinionated young chap, talented yet confused. A combination a savvy media will look to exploit to feed the perceived prejudices of its readership.
  14. Interesting point re Syria and yes I am aware of some of the undercurrents pertaining to Saudi interests in the Middle East region. I was looking for an article I found some time ago comparing Pep to Klopp in terms of buying players and both had invested in a lot of players to roll out their brand of football. Perhaps Liverpool did this within FFP yet they certainly did splash the cash. Can't find it just now.
  15. Yet would a new owner respect FFP based on City and Liverpool recent spending?
