  1. Bohemians 1 Chelsea FC 1

    Kane and Scott have been released. Musonda, Moses, Nathan and Pasalic have all been re-loaned.
  2. Spot on. Who can blame him? His FIRST SEASON in English football. Ultimately overachieves. Honestly treated like some sort of idiot by fans, players and the club. Our best player is leaving, Loftus-Cheek and Hudson-Odoi out for the best part of a year with potentially career-altering injuries, a transfer ban, a hell of a lot of deadwood on the books that need shifting. Oh, Juventus want him? Anyone with a shred of common sense would be there in an instant. What a mess.
  3. Chelsea 4 Arsenal 1

    Have plenty of reservations about Sarri but this was a really lovely moment. He started coaching professionally in the EIGHTH tier of Italian football having had no real career as a player to speak of and over the last 30 years has gradually worked his way up, league by league, until finally winning a major trophy at the highest level. And you can see how much it meant to him here. Very touching indeed.

    HAHAHAHA. What an absolute mess. Fuming.
  5. Chelsea 1 Eintracht Frankfurt 1 (Chelsea win on penalties)

    Well said. I've had a similar experience at most of the home games I've been to this season. I know the Bridge's atmosphere has always been up and down for the last 10 years or so but it feels like something else entirely these days. Not sure what the answer is. You'd think we were sinking like Leeds, such is the extent of the moaning. Imagine if things got really bad. Or even if we went as long as Liverpool or Spurs had without any real success. So much for supporting the team when the chips are down.
  6. Chelsea 1 Eintracht Frankfurt 1 (Chelsea win on penalties)

    We weren't very good tonight but we made it and I'm very happy indeed that we're going to be in that final. Can't help but roll my eyes at the sense of entitlement that some here (and probably in the stadium) seem to have. Seems pretty clear to me that we are not at the level we once were and that our squad is not particularly strong and yet still people seem to think we should have wiped the floor with Frankfurt as if it was a fourth round League Cup game.

    Well played Luiz and Zappa, keeping us in this.
  8. Chelsea 4 Slavia Prague 3 (5-3 Agg)

    Yep, absolutely this. Turns a song celebrating Chelsea's traditions into a cheap pop at a rival that we already sing enough about as it is. Ruins it.
  9. Chelsea 4 Slavia Prague 3 (5-3 Agg)

    Went tonight. Sat in MHU and was quite up for it beforehand but didn't enjoy it much at all outside of the first 10 minutes. Honestly found it all a bit alienating. Another European game, another game where the away support just puts us to shame with their constant support and noise. A few people try but the majority just sit on their hands. I know it's the Europa League and the CL would probably be different but even our games in the same competition in 2012/13 just felt so different. A million miles away. The booing of our own players continues to upset and frustrate me. Criticism's fine but the boos when Jorginho came on may have been the loudest yet. Just not what I'm used to seeing supporting Chelsea at all. CHO warming up gets the biggest reaction. I really want to see him stay and do well with us but even that feels a bit off. I feel less and less of a connection with the players in general (Hazard, Rudiger, Azpi and Kante aside) and the manager. The lack of quality throughout the squad is one thing, the apparent lack of fight and effort another entirely. Sarri's not the most charismatic man and very uninspiring on the touchline. Oh, and we weren't very good. Just not a lot to like.
  10. Chelsea 2 Tottenham Hotspur 0

    Haha, that was class Pedro.
  11. Chelsea 2 Tottenham Hotspur 0

    Could be one or two but I’m sure it’s Spurs mostly. When we played them at Wembley they booed the hell out of him every time he touched the ball.
  12. Chelsea 2 Tottenham Hotspur 0

    FFS Luiz. Such an idiot sometimes.
  13. Chelsea 2 Tottenham Hotspur 0

    Excellent chance. Pedro got that pass wrong.
  14. Chelsea 2 Tottenham Hotspur 0

    Only Alli missing for them no?
  15. Chelsea 2 Tottenham Hotspur 0

    Just a simple misunderstanding eh. Glad Higuain is starting. Not so glad with Pedro over CHO and Alonso over Emerson but there we go.
