    Perhaps FIFA should have banned the FA from operating for 12 months.
  2. Season prediction

    9th behind the other 5 and Wolves, Everton and Leicester. And I am fine with that, as long as we have some properly integrated academy players, genuinely and permanently challenging for the starting 11 by the end of the season I.e all of CHO, RLC, Mount, James. No silverware. No problem.

    It’s insane letting Luiz go now. January maybe, but not now with Rudiger still out. What happens when Christensen pulls a hamstring against Utd? Our first choice CB pairing suddenly becomes Zouma and Tomori. That is SO ridiculous, that we are in severe danger of out-Chelseaing ourselves.
  4. CHO

    This is all becoming a bit of a circus. Not really appreciating the fake "will he, wont he" bs. Personally, I despise that culture of trying to raise a players commercial profile, based on absolutely nothing. The very last thing he needs is hyping up even more.
  5. Following Chelsea's Loans

    Gary's got his platforms on.
  6. Following Chelsea's Loans

    Certainly for the last 20 years or so.
  7. Following Chelsea's Loans

    ...Oh. Possibly the worst part of any back 4 that I can remember.

    Paying off Frank’s contract in January? I’m joking 🙂
  9. Frank Lampard Appointed Chelsea Head Coach

    You’re pretty close I think 1) 3rd or 4th or any trophy 2) 5th to 8th with some decent football 3) below 8th
  10. Frank Lampard Appointed Chelsea Head Coach

    Unfortunately he is right. Dont see how we can better last season from a results perspective. We can certainly play some more attractive football. Just a bit nervous of us losing the first 3 games and the tongues start wagging "I told you it would never work and I was right". I'm absolutley right behind Frank, I'm dubious about the reaction around these parts if things dont get off to a JM1-style flyer.
  11. Frank Lampard Appointed Chelsea Head Coach

    Our first 3 games are very loseable.
  12. Ruben Loftus-Cheek

    I presume that means we cannot register "free-agents" as well?
  13. Frank Lampard Appointed Chelsea Head Coach

    This opinion is factually incorrect.
  14. Frank Lampard Appointed Chelsea Head Coach

    I've always gone by the rule that if you are offered a great opportunity, you have to jump in and take it, regardless of whether you think you are ready or not.
  15. Frank Lampard Appointed Chelsea Head Coach

    Looks like Patrick’s been at the custard creams.
  16. This. Surely the managers at Norwich or Sheffield Utd have done a better job than Frank. Don’t see anyone clamouring to appoint either of them.
  17. Surprised that the club have actually let him go. Going to be an interesting couple of weeks. Really hope it’s not Frank, for his own sake.
  18. Just get Jose back and be done with it. He's had 6 months off. He can re-invent or adapt what he does easily. One season of consolidation. Buy 2 or 3 key players next summer. Another Premier League title thank you very much. Pep will be back at Barca by then, Klopp will be at Real Madrid and Poch will be wondering what the hell happened... In all seriousness, he is, even now, hands-down miles ahead of the others on the list.
  19. For the first few weeks...

    I'm happy to be wrong and I have not seen him play for 3 years, but from his previous displays here , I cannot imagine him developing into anything like a premier league player. I thought he was MILES out of his depth.
  21. Official: Eden Hazard Joins Real Madrid

    On some occasions, yes. On others, no. Right now, it’s going to be tricky attracting any established quality, with this 18 month limbo period hanging over us, even if it is delayed.
  22. Official: Eden Hazard Joins Real Madrid

    Me too. Missed the game. Avoided all press and media since. It’s like it never happened. So far. Also enjoying the fact that Spurs have had their best season in living memory and they have STILL finished below us and won nothing.
  23. Official: Eden Hazard Joins Real Madrid

    Maybe the same types of improvements that Liverpool made with the money they got for their best player Coutinho
  24. I know it’s likely to be a very unlikely and unpopular scenario, but I would love Bakayoko to come back and morph into some kind of midfield god.
  25. Transfer Talk Topic

    Are there any managers you would have here?
