  2. New Stadium Plans

    A couple of questions, may well have been answered before or elsewhere. Who owns the two hotels, I thought CFC sold them a few years ago, if so it's going to cost a bit to buy them back just to knock them down. Looks like all of the flats at the back of the Shed are also being knocked down, again who owns these, are they on lease basis, are people that live there just going to pack and leave, it's taken other clubs years to shift residents from local houses.

    Whatever we build they need to check the view assuming that everyone is standing up. Anyone have a link to the Times article, without needing to subscribe ?
  4. Chelsea 1 Liverpool 1

    RLC, thought he had a good game and was took off at the right time, always best to leave the public wanting more. I'm sure they decided before the game an give him an hour. Thought we settled for a draw rather early on in the game, but nothing to play for. I never expected Gerrard to come out and thank us all for clapping him, and after the game was a bit annoyed with his comments. But I can see what he means, we've given him loads of clog for the past decade, he's never complained never given anything back, just took it and got on with his game, over the past 12 months the level has stepped up just a little bit, so you can hardly expect the geezer to suddenly think what a lovely bunch we are because we've clapped him for 30 seconds. My lad asked me yesterday why we clapped him. I didn't wait for TSO to start anything, I've seen Gerrard give his all for his club and country for the past 16, 17 years, I despise the scousers as much as the next person but he is for them, a club legend and like I said above he gets dogs abuse from supporters of loads of clubs, he's never got outwardly riled and never gave anything back. As a player 17 years at the top level is some achievement, I think we've seen him around 40 times playing against us. The fact that he plays for another team doesn't mean that he's not given me some entertainment over the years, as for the reception I was sat right behind their bench yesterday and Gerrard certainly stopped and applauded all around the ground, he looked pretty chocked as he left the pitch. We're never going to be 'friends' but I was happy to acknowledge his career in what will be the last time I will probably see him play on these shores.
  5. Leicester City 1 Chelsea 3

    We need to win tonight, these are 4th bottom, yes they have won 4 on the bounce but against West Ham and Swansea both on the beach, Burnley and West Brom, both as crap as Lesta.
  6. Leicester City 1 Chelsea 3

    Lesta fans reckon they were pretty poor at Burnley, most of them are banking on Huth and Morgan keeping us quiet.
  7. QPR 0 Chelsea 1

    Bit of a **** game, several players looking out on their feet. I said it at Villa Drogs is willing but the legs just ain't there anymore, surely Solanki or Brown would be a better bet. What happened to Remy is the bloke made of glass. Couple of points on our neighbours, what an annoying bunch of cnts they really are, throwing the ball away every time it went into the crowd, or hurling it at our players, bravely abusing every player who went near them from the safety of their seats. I tweeted Tony Fernandes yesterday to ask him if it was reasonable to expect to be able to see all of the goal when sitting in a 'Gold' seat, no reply, might follow it up with QPR, still least we wont have to go their next season.
  8. Tottenham 5 Chelsea 3

    We have turned into a one man team. Too much reliance now on Hazard, some other players need to step up again. Defence was shocking yesterday all four of them. Still to be convinced by our keeper, he stops all the shots that I would expect him too, but that's about it. Defensive midfield was non existent. Cesc was awful but stayed on the pitch, and Jose needed to change things around, what has Remy done wrong ? To round it all off paid a tenner to park and then managed to lose my credit card.
  9. CL semi final/ final

    The Away ST thing is a pain, but the rules are pretty clear at the start of the year, and they are better than a few years ago when you didn't even get considered for domestic cup finals. Away leg tickets are on Sale to Members tomorrow, and I reckon anyone with 60 points who wants one will be ok. In fact if I could place a bet I'd go for them not selling out.
  10. CL semi final/ final

    Might be wrong but I can't see this selling out. So members should get a look in on Thursday. Nice PR gesture from the club to knock a score of the price of tickets, but I doubt it will make any difference to anyone buying.

  12. Champions League draw

    Ron Gourlay says he can play.
  13. Champions League draw

    Looks like we are at home first, they can't have everyone arrive in Madrid on the same week.
  14. Champions League draw

    They can'y have two Madrid teams playing at home on consecutive nights.
  15. Champions League draw

    Happy with that.
  16. Champions League draw

    half an hour to draw out four balls.
  17. Champions League draw

    whoever we get, it's gonna be an expensive away trip
  18. PSG away

    Given that PSG are putting their tickets on sale tomorrow I imagine that CFC already know how many tickets they will be recieving, which of course means that they could pass the selling information onto us, the customers, right now. These customers being the people that need to book days off work, organise travel, hotels etc... which there is little point in doing until you know if you are going to get a ticket or not.
  19. Champions League draw

    Trip to HO in order for me, just round the corner, loads of hotels near, most pretty shite and all very expensive. Some decent bars by French standards in Billancourt as well, although again not cheap.
  20. Manchester City 2 - 0 Chelsea

    Citeh were better we were worse. Not sure what Jose was thinking of sticking Salah up front at half time, can only imagine he didn't think Torres would last the whole 45 minutes just coming back from injury. Would have been nice to have at least had a shot.
  21. Good business, buy for 23, two years good service, good not great, sell for 37. We have load of players that can play there and do the job that TSO wants them to do better.
  22. Van Ginkel

    Not opposed to squad depth, but in right areas. We are well overloaded with midfielders from last year, we've already added four more this summer. Let alone the selection of players that we have out on loan.
  23. Van Ginkel

    Perhaps we are going to play 10 in midfield next year
  24. Chelsea Finances Thread

    So if we win the EL we would still end up with a bigger slice than the other English clubs in CL.
  25. Didier Drogba

    Great servant, brilliant memories, going out on a high. Best of luck
