    Just read the stuff

    Just read the links instead of relying constantly on your own memory. He stopped playing several years earlier and went roaming doing a bit of playing and coaching at different clubs. There was even talk he might come to Chelsea in a player/assistant coach role. Of course the real difference between Frank and Guardiola is that Guardiola took over a long established coaching team with a ton of top level experience and players to match. He then had the Spanish League to practice in. Frank cobbled together a team of 2 youth coaches and a fitness coach for matches in the Prem.

    Pep spent a lot longer preparing for management than Frank. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zinedine_Zidane It isn't a secret what Zidane did before becoming manager.

    Looks innocent enough to me. The contact was all through the keeper, his foot barely got off the ground, and what looks like a stamp and twist in the photo looks like a player trying to take his weight off as soon as he feels contact. Still the kind of incident one can disagree on easily.

    Was a fair argument in 18/19 or 19/20. Everyone else has stepped back big time recently. We have spent huge (and acquired some great players to add to the best players we had in 18/19 and the very good new comers and Pulisic we had from 19/20). Comparing us with anyone but City or Liverpool or Man U (same budget) is just ducking the obvious. Try explaining it to RA. There is immense pressure on the team and coaches to perform this year. Not the club I have watched for the past 17 years. Managers first years (and JM's 2nd) have been our best years. We won the CL with 2 new managers in the year. The whole RA period has been about the club getting the teams together and new managers adding the final piece. I'd say he was admirably qualified for 19/20 which was meant as a rebuild year with the assumption that acquiring 5 or 6 top class players would take a while. Much as AVB was qualified for 11/12. The challenge this year is quite different.

    Course not. Got it wrong, went personal instead of admitting to it, walks off in high huff....

    I thought you might make it about me rather than back up what you were only saying an hour or so ago.

    I've only seen the photo above and this. Certainly a foul, but his foot barely gets off the ground, he continues running forwards and the keeper slides his leg underneath. Not a Red or Yellow IMO

    yeah. They were showing non-TV games in the late part of last season from midnight the next morning. I suppose there are TV restrictions that affect all clubs, even ours.
  13. Chelsea 3 Southampton 3

    The match finally went up on the official site. The timestamp says 11.47pm Tuesday - 3 and a half days later. Looks like the official site isn't going to be much use for watching Pay for games.

    Wrong bubble - they are already with the kids, they can't join up with the big lads.

    Did he? He certainly established himself as first choice No 8, and played wide only when others were injured or eliminated themselves with poor form.
