  1. Transfer Talk Topic

    I was thinking we need cover for Tammy and thought Pukki of Norwich might work, strong player who plays in other forward players. I guess we might need to pay a decent fee yet at his age (29) he would probably be amenable to being a 70 minute sub while we give Tammy his chance.

    I never before knew about the assault, though when I heard about the Kalashnikov tattoo started thinking something was wrong. I'm not keen on tattoos and recall his defensive story about his relative being shot, think it was his father. If he wants to make a message about gun crime he could have had pistol in a road sign with a red cross over it, having instead seen a large Kalashnikov assault rifle tattooed on his leg think this was his personal statement and nothing to do with a relative. So what do we have a young person of foreign ancestry wearing a symbol boldly on his leg of a weapon not used in the UK yet used normally by forces fighting the West such as ISIS. This could be a naive mistake, it could be showing brotherhood with militant Islam or could be he just wants to appear the tough guy in clubs. I suspect he is confused and apart from being talented on the pitch and dance floor is not very worldly and also impressionable which means he is likely to make a lot of mistakes. In other words manna from heaven for the Media.
  3. Chelsea 2 Lille 1

    I agree with this, think Frank is toying with the idea of playing a 4-3-3 to have an extra body defensively yet has concerns over the front three of Pulisic, Abraham and Willian. All good players yet not clinical enough in front of goal. On different note nice to see us score a headed goal from a corner, just a shame it looks like it has come from a defender who looks like he might become a casualty for younger legs..
  4. Chelsea 2 Lille 1

    That's nice to hear.

    On the treatment bench, just don't think he is going to be a regular unfortunately. Best position for me would be as a CB in a back three.
  6. Chelsea 2 Lille 1

    Out of interest how did you sell them to the club? Auction, eBay or did you approach the club?

    It might be someone video recorded it remember that young lady on the Tube that got upset about something and ranted racist opinions and ended up on the papers and in court. Never heard if something had provoked her. About 3 years ago.
  8. VAR and Chelsea

    It's the first season so don't think anyone else will listen yet if two seasons in a row we have grounds to raise it.
  9. Media / Press

    Not sure what you mean by the building being relevant. He deserves to be given a chance to defend himself as he says he didn't do anything racist and I guess it could be mistaken though it does look suspect to say the least. Hope they get the City fans throwing projectiles too.
  10. VAR and Chelsea

    I don't think this is always anti-Chelsea just that at away matches unless it is obvious we probably won't get the decision as the officials get influenced by the crowd. Having said that Everton incurred 3 yellows, Chelsea none.

  12. Everton 3 Chelsea 1

    I like this post a lot, I also thought Tomori looked a bit mentally ragged so hopefully will be mentally reset to come back in. I also agree if we play our 3 midfield players we are not threatening enough going forward. I think all 3 of our midfielders are very good though the one I would play week in and out currently is Kovacic, then it's a toss up between Jorginho and Kante with both having very different attributes.
  13. Everton 3 Chelsea 1

    I think a fair result might have been 3-3 yet Abraham missed two key chances he knows too. It looks like Frank has defenders coming in to shoot on the edge of the box from a deflected corner, Tomori has scored one already and Christensen was not too far off yesterday. Yesterday was poor from us Frank has to look at us himself and the performances and take the learning points and then we march onwards.
  14. Everton 3 Chelsea 1

    Perhaps Frank was testing our squad before dipping into the transfer market and perhaps Tomori needed a rest. I read a comment about our lack of decent scouting as Everton's first goal was a carbon copy of a recent one scored against Southampton.
  15. Chelsea 0 West Ham United 1

    And I thought my armchair prediction was bold..............
  16. Non Chelsea: Premier League

    Funnily enough with Luiz playing regularly for us last season we conceded less than under Frank this season. It's a mad world.
  17. Transfer Talk Topic

    Good point, Auba won the golden boot last season guess I think he thought he would win trophies with Arsenal. Wrong move I think. Lacazette reminds me of Bats or at least what Bats might be if he could improve his football brain.
  18. Chelsea 2 Aston Villa 1

    He was involved in both goals like a pre-assist.
  19. Chelsea 2 Aston Villa 1

    Compared to last season we set up differently, we basically have 4 attackers whereas last season we had just three attackers. I'm counting Mount as an attacker.
  20. Chelsea 0 West Ham United 1

    I still think we will get 4th, think Spurs will challenge on all fronts and get injuries and fixture congestion while we bow out early (not intentionally) and focus on the league.
  21. Chelsea 2 Aston Villa 1

    Its funny when you mention success as Rudiger has only played two seasons and has had a long lay-off though Alonso played 3 and I agree by that margin he has been a success.
  22. Chelsea 2 Aston Villa 1

    Not sure I agree, when Frank came here it seemed a gamble and when Didier came here he didn't immediately look the real deal. Seems to be a factor certain managers can see in certain players to bring them on a level. One exception for me was Ashley Cole who from day one excelled. Another factor why we are more careful is we have been the graveyard for a number of players, Torres, Shevchenko, Sutton, Fleck, Kezman and the ones that got away, Salah and KDB.
  23. Frank Lampard Appointed Chelsea Head Coach

    Get the feeling Frank has been found out now by the opposition managers. I think they have realised if you put a man in front and behind Tammy you can stop Chelsea's build up play. Noticed a few times with Kova's though balls being cut out. Well Tammy is injured yet we didn't score without him. When we are losing or drawing with 15 minutes to go I would like to see Frank be bold and go three at the back and bring Bats on as a second striker, just don't have him leading the line yet more to be ready for knock downs or one-two or even as a foil for other players. He seems to be our best finisher just not a 90 mins player for me.
  24. Chelsea 2 Aston Villa 1

    Correct though looking at the next few fixtures it might have better being today! I agree it is important to get a result otherwise the media will be onto Frank and just when the injuries are mounting up. Villa do have some decent offensive players too.
  25. Chelsea 2 Aston Villa 1

    A big test for Frank today, we need a result to avoid being seen as in crisis, the media would love that. A lot of players having fitness issues does not help either. I am not keen on playing three defensive midfielders against Villa when we are at home. Lose this and JM's Spurs will be breathing down our necks.
