  1. Brentford 0 Chelsea 1

    Taylor waved it off even before the offside flag went up — and even though Toney was onside, VAR deemed there to be no clear error on Taylor’s call.
  2. Yep - will be similar to when Liverpool fielded a team to Villa and lost 5-0 a couple of years ago. December: 4th Dec - West Ham (A) 8th Dec - Zenit (A) 11th Dec - Leeds (H) 15th/16th Dec - CWC 19th Dec - CWC 22nd Dec - Carabao Cup 26th Dec - Villa (A) 28th Dec - Brighton (H) Everton (H) and Wolves (A) due to be played in mid-December would be rescheduled if CWC goes ahead in December. Jan has 3 league games, FA Cup (and replay if required) and Carabao SF (if we progress) - maybe squeeze in one of those league games here if possible
  3. Exactly how I'd line up - maybe Sarr in over Christensen/Rudi
  4. Tottenham Hotspur 0 Chelsea 3

    Pulisic out, Kante fully fit
  5. Tottenham Hotspur 0 Chelsea 3

    I think Lucas Moura and Bergwijn came off with knocks last night, not sure how fit Son and Dier will be either
  6. Chelsea 3 Aston Villa 0

    Wonder if he'll throw Saul straight in with Kante out and Zenit on Tuesday. Kante aiming to be back for Tuesday. Saul - Jorginho tomorrow, Kante - Kova Tuesday?

    I think it's an aim to try and recoup some money as they'd be a free agent otherwise - Giroud signed a 1 year extension and then was sold for €2m EUR something like 3 weeks later which is €2m in the bank for a players who's contract was due to expire

    I think Ugbo to Genk and Batshuayi to Besiktas both could happen today
  9. Chelsea 3 Crystal Palace 0

    Yes - exactly the same, I had the text up as it was quicker than navigating through the NHS app to get the QR code etc. but it was very lenient. I don't think they even checked the date of the test or as the name as you said. It was all very light touch. I do wonder what the best way to do it would be with 40k people there. I was at the Spurs pre-season friendly and instead of checking at the turnstiles they were checking before you entered the stadium (where the bollards/bag checks are) and they did properly look at that but then again it was a pre-season friendly and not full attendance.

    Yes there's another snippet of how he was chatting to Nathaniel (Trevor's brother) after he scored and how he got emotional which was lovely to hear!
  11. Arsenal 0 Chelsea 2

    Arsenal fans really don't seem to fancy this game - tickets on general sale and the tier above the away end has 50% availability. At £87 a pop I don't blame them. Embarrassing however being the first home game back for 18 months and it being a London derby!
  12. Chelsea 3 Crystal Palace 0

    Yep I was in MHL - they started to play the first few notes but then it got drowned out by "Champions of Europe" chants and they switched it to the premier league anthem, very odd!

    Tchouameni/Camavinga or Rice (at a reasonable price). We have 3 playing CMs as I'm not sure what's on the cards for RLC, Barkley (doesn't have a squad number?), Bakayoko and with what will hopefully be a deep season (60+ games). Tchouameni looks the real deal at 21, incredible defender, box to box and a great passing range and his price will only go higher Even if Zouma leaves we have Rudi, AC, Thiago, Azpi, Reece, Trevoh all capable to play in a back 3 and depth at WB to cover too - I think a CB is a priority next year but not right now
  14. Chelsea 3 Crystal Palace 0

    perspective eh! Yep agreed - I thought James/Chilwell could easily slot in too at wing back and Azpi move to CB to replace Chalobah/Rudi if needed
  15. Chelsea 3 Crystal Palace 0

    Rudiger, Chalobah, Alonso, Kovacic and Havertz played the full 120 last night - not sure what their fitness levels are like
