    Not at all according to the article.
  2. Chelsea vs Manchester United

    Has to be Kovacic against a strong team. Has to be Giroud against any team. I'd put Willian ahead of Pedro on form (he has been terrific in a lot of games recently) but that one is up for debate. Lets hope Azpi doesn't make it his 3rd worst game in his career in a row*. He started against Wales so presumably he is fit (Ampadu started too). Still at a level some players only average.

    True. But there is also an instinctive reaction when anyone comes up with a pile of bullshit about how great a player is on the basis of one ordinary performance that follows a string of poor ones.

    Oh yes. A real new Costa would be wonderful again.

    I liked Oscar, but he always played in the middle of the 3 in 4231 for us. Closest would be the Kovacic position, and I think he'd be better than Kovacic (whom I'm not sold on yet) and certainly better than Barkley or RL, while Fabregas hasn't been tried there much (but might be the best of the lot). I don't think we can compare him with even this season's Kante who still gets through far too much work to be similar to anyone. I suspect he just sounds like the new Costa, not necessarily is the new Costa. Any more than Schurlle is the new er Schurlle. They are playing in a team that has scored 9 in 8 games, while conceding 21. No wonder the forwards are getting praise.
  6. Tiemoue Bakayako

    I bet he doesn't start one.
  7. Ross Barkley

    Sounds like one of his better performances then.
  8. Ross Barkley

    Was he any good?

    Of course. I think you have been well and truly conned mate. Meanwhile in Westminster there is a stack of "New" Labour MPs facing deselection and in Palestine the news is not being covered. The actual news is a film sponsored by Chelsea. The PA article goes nowhere near that story, preferring to produce more anti-anti propaganda for its sponsors. When even the Press Association goes off track to report what it has been fed by a PR firm while ignoring the Chelsea official announcement you know how the press works.

    ^ A story based on a guess by Craig Burley.

    I think "fronting" it is pretty much an exaggeration, and there is nothing here less than 6 months old. RA has no direct link to the latest event. This is 2018, anti-semitism in UK hasn't been a real issue for decades, just a distraction from Palestine and the wholesale changes in the Labour party.

    ditto - can you, did you? All great players, and I would expect Hazard to have gone on loan like the others if he hadn't been the only one to get picked a lot. Not answered I see.
  13. John Terry

    It's the Gullitt thing. He was making far more as a player than he would ever have got as a manager, but wasn't playing enough to justify getting what he wanted. If JT plays, I'm not sure Villa can afford him.
  14. John Terry

    There are 2 No 2s I gather, including Smith current No 2. 2= or 3rd I wonder. JT - just put 26 on your shirt (1 more than our No 2) and give your best.
  15. Eden Hazard

    No more obvious than it seemed to me last summer he would be gone. Actually a lot less obvious if we assume we'll have CL football next season
