  1. Chelsea 3 Burnley 0

    I've no idea, but the fact that the team has been doing so well means the coach has no real need to alter his selections. I hope we recall him as he's getting zero game-time out there. Don't think Lewis Baker's loan at Dusseldorf has done much for him either.
  2. Chelsea 3 Burnley 0

    I've seen all of Ampadu's games for Wales, in which he has been used in midfield. He's been outstanding, apart from the odd rash challenge. Amazing strength and composure, and excellent distribution. He hasn't been used as a CB, but he looks a natural DM.

    I trust you've paid her back since. With interest. I always resisted the temptation to ring clubcall. I shudder to think how much they used to charge per minute. And no doubt there was a two-minute 'Welcome to clubcall' message before they got to the made-up gossip non-story.
  4. Tottenham Hotspur 0 Chelsea 2

    We should appeal against ever again having to be reffed by Taylor.
  5. VAR and Chelsea

    It was a very weird situation. Alli was offside, but these days you're not offside till you touch the ball or interfere with an opponent. So by that logic, you can be fouled when offside and still get a free kick,because you're not doing the interfering. I think there was a case for a second yellow for diving, but var isn't used for incidents outside the box unless it's violent conduct. So.... If they had decided the incident was in the box, they could have looked at it and then booked him for diving, if they felt there was no foul. But, in the same incident, if they had looked at it, seen no foul but decided it was not in the box, they couldn't have given a second yellow. Have I got that right?

    His autobiography made it clear he wanted to leave from before he even signed for us. He wrote that, on the way over to sign for us, he prayed he'd fail his medical so the deal would not go through. I think it took him about three seasons before he felt settled.

    We have had some success over there, I seem to remember.

    There's one angle here:
  9. Chelsea 0 AFC Bournemouth 1

    Teams desperate for a win tend to break their miserable runs against us. Like WH and Everton. And Bournemouth have given us a couple of spankings in the recent past.

    You are correct, Mark. And the footage I've seen (which has been concealed by MotD and BBC news, unlike the incident at the Bridge, and has also been taken off the Twitter post) was crystal clear - both the verbal abuse and the monkey gestures. I fully expect the FA will shut that part of the ground and deduct points, as advocated by Raheem Sterling. (I could be posting that in an ironic tone, though). Edit: Just read the Guardian's report on yesterday. Some things stood out: Interesting how the one incident is presented with the phrase 'appeared to be', while the one at the Bridge is not.

    Classic Daily Mail headline on the City racism story:

    There have been a large number of posts below the paper's articles saying how Chelsea have become likeable, so it was time to remind the readership that we are a corrupt, evil, racist club that is rotten to the core, down as far as the under 8s. Note how we haven't won anything under RA's ownership. In Conn's words, we have 'acquired trophies'.
