  1. Gianfranco Zola

    As much as a loved watching Zola putting emotions to one side on pure ability it has to be Ronnie everytime.
  2. Gianfranco Zola

    quote:Originally posted by wackoZola was a player who was arguably passed his best when he joined Chelsea, Lampard is approaching his. Frank is still not fit to lace Zola's boots. Okay, that's an exaggeration, but I honestly don't see what all the fuss over Lampard is about. Highly overrated. Brilliant eye for goal and scores some crackers. That's about it. Zola was magic. I'm no Chelsea fan, but I always enjoyed watching Zola. He was something special. id="quote"> id="quote">I think you must just watch the highlights when Frank scores the goals and never the games. He controls the midfield, sets the pace for our play, plays long range passes that open up and stetch the opposition constantly, which are by the way better than Gerrards constantly over hit ones but lets not get into that. I just hate the way some people still think Lampard is overrated try watching a game for Chelsea and you will see just how much he means to our team.
  3. Michael Essien

    Good work guys and girls on the translation. I still wont believe this until I see it confirmed on the official site and I see him in our shirt at the press conference.
  4. Michael Essien

    Right place right time comes to mind, now we just need someone to translate it! anyone out there?
  5. Michael Essien

    Looks like it could be over. However I am still thinking he might come out and say he has changed his mind just for the added effect. Can anyone translate this into English?
  6. Didier Drogba

    quote:Originally posted by guillaumeHe makes this interview 2 months ago, at the end of the last season. I read that in a french newspaper. id="quote"> id="quote">My point proven, I thought I had heard this a few months ago. Its the papers looking through the archives to try and make it out that there are internal troubles at Chelsea we should just ignore this stuff.
  7. New Kits

    Whats with the obsession with the kits on here recently. Every other thread is about the bloody kit, its a kit thats all! So people have to wait who cares does it really matter if you dont have it straight away?
  8. Didier Drogba

    Give the guy a break, are system probably doesnt suit him. More importantly you dont know how his words have been twisted like other players have in the past.
  9. Michael Essien

    There was nothing in the first tackle, just picky refereeing you can't do anything anymore, second tackle was a yellow though.
  10. Michael Essien

    Its a bit wild but its not that bad.
  11. New Kits

    This thread has just evolved from the new Chelsea kit into the pros and cons of Pc and Mac..interesting..mind we have enough "new kit" threads for the moment anyway!
  12. Gianfranco Zola

    I agree a role in the youth team would be the best idea. It would pull in alot of young kids to the club as well I would imagine. The chance to be coached by a great like Zola would be attractive to young players.
  13. Didier Drogba

    quote:Originally posted by Arjen Robbenquote:Originally posted by Tony BurkeArjen Robben - explain why you think it would be good? I am amazed. You think it would be good to spend £24 million pounds on a player then loan him to someone for free 1 year later. I can't wait to hear you business strategy on that one! id="quote"> id="quote"> Just such a waste off money, and it frustrates me so much, watching the game, and seeing so many chances go missing by this guy. Going back to the west brom game, okay he scored the winner, but he should off had about 7 or 8 goals. I can't say we should loan him, because I dont no the new striker coming in, but when I do, ill gladl'y give you a strategy. hope that help's any way mate.But about business strategy, why did Chelsea pay 24 million on him, when he's worth only 14? That's something I'd like to know. id="quote"> id="quote">How can we judge him to be a waste of money after one injury prone season? You talk about the West Brom game and in this dismiss the key point "he scored the winner" so he missed some chances he still won us the game. I feel some people expect us to buy some sort of striker that scores every opportunity and that just is not possible. If Drogba had missed that chance that Shev missed in the Champs League final there would have been outrage on these forums. Why did Chelsea pay 24million? The simple fact is we will be taken to they cleaners on every transfer we do because of our finances. Just give the guy a chance I feel our expectations are for perfecton and its unrealistic and to loan him out next season would be one of the craziest things I have ever seen.
  14. Frank Arnesen

    I have just read in the Observer a paper I thought would have some shread of reality and they are saying a sports lawyer has told them we could fase up to a 12 point deduction!? thats ridiculous. However further on they say "the FA has indicated last night that while the suspended threee point peniltiy imposed last ednesday would not be activated if Chelsea were found guilty of tapping up Arnesen-it applies only to an offense committed next season - the clubs previous conduct would be a factor in deciding punishment." Thats the line being taken by the Observer.

    quote:Originally posted by mini-moWhat the h*** is this? At last the Ashley Cole saga was done, I was looking forward to some peace and quiet. I live with a Spurs fan, mind you! Now this weekend is ruined :-(. What do we want with Arnesen anyway Isn't the Sporting Director a part of José's job? Is the next bombshell tonight that José has resigned? I can't live with this, my brain has gone numb. id="quote"> id="quote">Please dont joke about him resigning it doesnt bare thinking about. I'm sure they must have sanctioned the move for Anersen with Jose.
