    So it’s time to put the popcorn away then? I’d imagine if you both put the same sort of effort into your professional lives you’d both be billionaires.
  2. Chelsea vs Leicester

    I know Bakayojo isn't everyones cup of tea (understatement of the year), but he's still in the squad!

    Yep, there is it. Thx for linking! But I'd be absolutely shocked if we will ever get a VAR call, or a call that should be consulted by VAR, in our favour. It's just yet another barrier we will have to overcome on top of new and inexperienced manager, young and inexperienced squad, lack of quality depth and a transfer ban. Tottenham last season the FA even felt the need to manipulate the line to make Kane just onside. It's a farce! I'm all for removing VAR completely. Either it is crystal clear and unambigious, or we scrap it alltogether. Since the first is impossible I see no situation where VAR can live on and still be fair and objective. What is it we normally say? **** 'EM ALL!

    I don’t know how to link photos in a post here, but there photos available that shows him well off his line before Abraham strikes the ball - something like 4 inches.

    Not sure it can get any more blatant than that to be honest.

    But imagine the medial outcry if she had pulled Adrian up on it, Abraham scoring the retake and then Liverpool going on losing? Takes some balls to stand up to the BBC, Sky Sports and the rest of the establishment.
  7. Chelsea vs Leicester

    This is a big one now. Despite two very confident performances against two of our closest rivals we badly need a win and three points to be on our way. Strongest possible starting eleven. Perhaps it makes sense to play a 433 to shore up the defense. Arrizabalaga; Azpilicueta, Zouma, Christensen, Emerson; Kante, Jorginho, Kovacic; Pedro, Abraham, Pulisic Subs: Caballero, Tomori, Alonso, Barkley, Willian, Mount, Giroud
  8. Liverpool 2 Chelsea FC 2 (Liverpool wins 5-4 Pens)

    Quite right. Kepa stayed on his line for all of their penalties. I think she didn’t have the balls to order that one to be re-taken as it was the deciding one. But you can’t tell a keeper “I’m watching you” and then let it slide. Anyhow, I’m fully expecting us the be a big loser with VAR so go into every game convinced we’ll be shafted at least once or twice for critical match-deciding situations.
  9. Liverpool 2 Chelsea FC 2 (Liverpool wins 5-4 Pens)

    Fully agreed Nobly. Now go get a kitkat, you deserve it!
  10. Liverpool 2 Chelsea FC 2 (Liverpool wins 5-4 Pens)

    I think this is important. At this stage it’s not only about the results. It’s just as much about the performance in itself. And tonight we didn’t disappoint. We might not get top four, but I’m certain Lamps won’t oversee a disgrace.
  11. Liverpool 2 Chelsea FC 2 (Liverpool wins 5-4 Pens)

    I might be off my rocket but I’m pretty sure he’s talking about Jorginho... Mind you I’ve been drinking since 3pm today so... Well. I don’t care about a Mickey Mouse UEFA “trophy”. Today was all about the performance. And we didn’t disappoint! Really encouraged by the team tonight.
  12. Liverpool 2 Chelsea FC 2 (Liverpool wins 5-4 Pens)

    Quite right! I was worried Lamps would flop. He won’t, he’s got blue blood in his veins! I’m excited and that's good enough for me!
  13. Liverpool 2 Chelsea FC 2 (Liverpool wins 5-4 Pens)

    Let’s just agree to disagree. Only Conte would play with three DMs. I’m the modern game that ain’t gonna fly. You need someone who can play,
  14. Liverpool 2 Chelsea FC 2 (Liverpool wins 5-4 Pens)

    James for me all day long. Zappa is at best an average RB with little prospect of improving over time. James potential is sky high, probably the best youngster we have on our books. I fully expect him to play at least 30% of the available PL and CL minutes this season.
  15. Liverpool 2 Chelsea FC 2 (Liverpool wins 5-4 Pens)

    Quite right Jane. Some were predicting 6-0 to Liverpool!!!
  16. Liverpool 2 Chelsea FC 2 (Liverpool wins 5-4 Pens)

    Quite right, I was apprehensive about Lampard being our manager. Now not so much. Given time and some money to strengthen he’ll do well. Probably won’t need £360m to make us decent again. 🤣
  17. Liverpool 2 Chelsea FC 2 (Liverpool wins 5-4 Pens)

    **** that, James over Zappa all day long. He shouldn’t be too far off. 😂😂😂 I take it this is a joke right?
  18. Manchester United 4 Chelsea 0

    Not really dismissive. I’m stating facts. It would be nice if you’d challenge them instead of playing the individual. Net spend can be ridiculously misleading. But the £360m he spent on new players isn’t. The only player one could reasonably argue Conte wanted to keep is Matic. That’s one of a long list of players he got rid of.
  19. Manchester United 4 Chelsea 0

    Oh yes, net spend. Selling loan army players and players the manager no longer wanted should be seen as something that weakens his chances? Just more bad excuses I’m afraid. I think you should look at the net movement of first team players the manager actually wanted and not fees from players the manager never intended to keep/use. Insufferably dense you say? Yep. Anything to protect Conte no matter how silly apparently. So... Perhaps it would be in order to look closer to home with that insult.
  20. Transfer Talk Topic

    Well the damage is already done. It’s amazing how City can do what we do only worse yet we are the only ones who get punished or lambasted in the press. We lack balls. Plain and simple. That or we need new lawyers.
  21. Media / Press

    Huh? They avoid a transfer ban whereas we are slapped with one immediately? Just another fantastic day at corruption central.
  22. Liverpool 2 Chelsea FC 2 (Liverpool wins 5-4 Pens)

    Absolutely! Every game against Liverpool matters!
  23. Manchester United 4 Chelsea 0

    LOL. £360m spent on new players 2015/16 and 2016/17... But let's pretend that didn't happen shall we?
  24. Liverpool 2 Chelsea FC 2 (Liverpool wins 5-4 Pens)

    Or my ex... Yikes. Yawn. As as for the line-up I’m thinking we’ll see; Kepa, Azpilicueta, Christensen, Zouma, Emerson; Jorginho, Kovacic; Pedro, Mount, Pulisic; Giroud Subs: Caballero, Alonso, Tomori, Kante, Willian, Barkley, Abraham Bats, Zappa and Baka missing out.
  25. Season prediction

    Lampard certainly indicated that James would have a big role to play this season. Perhaps that is what we need, a strong and fast RB that can run up and down all day.
