  1. Chelsea vs Lille

    Your kidding yourself again.
  2. Chelsea vs Lille

    Thankyou. Not bad at all considering how gloomy it looked last summer. But not good. And certainly some of the early celebrations have been premature. We've been kidding ourselves because Arsenal, Spurs and Man U have been so poor.

    First club to sack a black manager, First club to sack a lady Physio First club to systematically kick out supporters for being near alleged racists. All a bit like the Mail and the Telegraph accusing Corbyn. Its how the media works page 1 to 32.

    which no doubt is why Koulibaly is said to be unhappy.
  5. VAR and Chelsea

    Thought I was the only one to see that. The commentary team said plainly they had no idea what VAR might be looking at. There was no attempt at winning ball, just barging into Christensen - a theme for the game. There was also a barge by Pickford on Tammy Abraham as tried to prevent a defender shadowing the ball for a goal kick. Quite blatant and with the ball still in play (on his bruised hip, he stayed down for a while). Penalty if we are going to VAR stuff and stick to the rules. And for not the first game, there was quite a lot of shoving Chelsea players off onto the sidelines. I presume we now have a reputation for bottling the physical stuff.

    I think you answer the point. The less he says the sooner the story disappears and the smaller the pressure on his employer or friends to "take a stance". Least said, soonest mended. Delete twitter and FB accounts. Disappear.
  7. Frank Lampard Appointed Chelsea Head Coach

    Good points
  8. Everton 3 Chelsea 1

    Yes. You really were strong on Kovacic and strong against Jorginho last year. I still think you are wrong, but you do seem to have won over a few fans. I would certainly debate that. 4th best this year, 3rd best last year. But he was good last year playing in the deeper roles. Just to clarify - had we had 70% possession and total freedom to play from the "Jorginho" position and lost 3-1 with Jorginho playing, he'd have been rightly crucified. The way Everton set up would have been a wet dream for Jorginho or Fabregas or even Matic.

    Foot in mouth more likely. Does he not have the common sense to keep it shut? what evidence do you have he said anything ill advised?

    Saying anything in that situation is ill-advised.

    You did quote the "prediction" before. I answered the point then. Find the line and we can discuss what "I would be surprised" about. You'll find it on the later pages of the Man City thread. Great photo though - nice one.

    I think Barkley is a known beast now. Baka is 25 and has 10 starts at a mid-table La Liga team. When we bought him he was 22, on a much lower wage, playing more frequently for the Monaco team that won La Liga 8 points over PSG. And they had already sold 3 star players at stellar prices. He was doing better at Milan and still no one seems to have made us an offer. We won't get much for either I'm afraid. But good idea to try. Barkley, Baka, Moses, Zappacosta, Rahman, Drinkwater, Kenedy, never mind Giroud, Pedro, Caballero and perhaps Willian to be pensioned off for no fee. All recent first team squad members. I'm pretty sure that we would have taken bids last summer for almost all of this list (as we did with Luiz to my actual surprise). And we won't get better bids next summer.

    Oooh yes please.

    Plain untrue - and I really have no idea why you would think that. Only in about 4 games all season - all the others Kante or Jorginho has been unfit or injured. And in one of those 4 Mount was played LW. Which midfielder would Lampard prefer Kovacic over? Kante, Jorginho or Mount?
