  1. Chelsea vs Norwich City

    Let's just get on with it. Better to qualify by finishing top four rather than on a technicality anyway. We can finish above Leicester and Wolves. Leicester have United, Spurs and Sheffield United and will probably be without their best centre back (and right back).
  2. Chelsea vs Norwich City

    As expected, City ban lifted. Makes that Bournemouth win all the more important.
  3. Sheffield United 3 Chelsea 0

    "More than likely"? Hardly. We have no idea how long Frank will be in charge or whether Joe Edwards will be around then either...
  4. Sheffield United 3 Chelsea 0

    Liverpool did very well out of that Coutinho deal and were able to spend more as a result. Pretty sure they still haven't spent nearly as much as us over the last say five years but the difference was that almost all their signings have been hits. The year we spent £250m on Rüdiger, Morata, Zappacosta, Drinkwater, Bakayoko, Emerson, Barkley and Giroud, they spent £150m on Salah, van Dijk, Robertson and Oxlade-Chamberlain (and brought Alexander-Arnold through that season too). Year after we spent £120m on Jorginho & Kepa. They spent £160m on Alisson, Keita, Shaqiri and Fabinho.

    Is that a serious question? I can think of a few reasons. 49, to be precise. Most goals conceded at this stage of the season since 1997.
  6. Sheffield United 3 Chelsea 0

    Easier said than done given he's owned by Manchester United and they apparently don't want to sell him.
  7. Sheffield United 3 Chelsea 0

    What a dreadful performance. Reminds me of that Bournemouth game when they beat us 4-0. CAS are our only hope.
  8. Sheffield United 3 Chelsea 0

    Don't know what to believe to be honest, but seeing more and more on Twitter about City being exonerated, in which case we'd need to finish in the top four to make CL...
  9. Transfer Talk Topic

    Strakosha could be a good shout although I'm not sure how much Lotito would demand. The Turkish keeper was Trabzonspor's Ugurcan Cakir I think. Can't claim to have seen anything of him.
  10. Transfer Talk Topic

    Who then? We've been linked with Onana and Areola but both have their flaws and many don't see them as clear improvements over Kepa, particularly when it comes to being commanding and vocal. Seen people suggest Predrag Rajkovic at Reims but no actual links.
  11. Sheffield United 3 Chelsea 0

    That Sheffield Utd/Wolves result is big. 4 points from the Sheffield United and Norwich games and we should be fine now with our goal difference being well ahead of Wolves. Provided City's ban isn't overturned completely of course which most people don't think is remotely likely.
  12. Crystal Palace 2 Chelsea 3

    I'm not sure that Reece James has worked himself back into the team as much as Alonso and Emerson have worked their way out of it, to be fair.
  13. Crystal Palace 2 Chelsea 3

    We are - and so too much negativity is silly, especially when many had us finishing between 6th and 10th before the season began - but the fact that we are third despite having conceded more goals than the likes of Newcastle, Palace and Brighton (and a LOT more than the teams around us) is worth noting.
  14. Crystal Palace 2 Chelsea 3

    I was getting flashbacks to Barca and Bayern in 2012 at times there. And this is Palace. With no fans. Tammy getting back on the scoresheet for our third was such a great moment, completely cancelled out within seconds. That was so bad you'd laugh if you weren't so angry. Positives? Pulisic. He's special. His dribbling ability is even better than I thought. Breathtaking really. Billy Gilmour doing a lot better after a shaky first two appearances and 20 minutes or so tonight. Jorginho when he came on. Zouma's challenge at the end. He's the first choice CB right now for me.
