  1. Champions League 2019/2020

    Pink 'cause they stink.
  2. Champions League 2019/2020

    All pink? Bold choice.
  3. Time to give Willian some credit

    Someone posted in the article that Willian has played 339 for Chelsea and scored 63 goals , Saloman Kalou played 254 games in a similar position and scored 60 . Puts it neatly into perspective , lets give Kalou a new contract , we can get him on a free ! Droy will tell us how much he rates him , one of his all time faves I believe.
  4. Frank Lampard Appointed Chelsea Head Coach

    If you register on the Premier league website you can vote. I voted Jurgen obvs.
  5. Transfer Talk Topic

    He was very good against us recently I thought , in this day and age £30m for a left back is a snip . I will ask my Gooner mates to see what they think .
  6. Transfer Talk Topic

    Yep, Maitland-Niles always looks decent when I see him , £30 m instead of £80M for Chilwell seems a bargain
  7. None of those are italian . He only likes Italian players apparently . Or Injured ones .
  8. Without getting into a bit of whataboutery , I only posted , once more to stand up for Conte , not disparage Sarri , the revisionism with regards to Conte is absolutely ludicrous , changed the way we played to get the best out of a mediocre bunch of players , it took Frank the best part of a season to work that out , won the league, won the cup and had a load of players to this day that nobody can prove he wanted foisted upon him. Told the board how things were and got screwed by them. Also he won the scudetto from seventh place three times on the spin . Sarri is a system man , it works to a degree but he "trains one way very well" Absolutely carried by Hazard after the first six weeks when the players decided Sarri ball wasn't an option .
  9. Time to give Willian some credit

    He's an enigma Willian , I always admired his work rate , he always puts in the hard yards but he always disappoints at the other end for me , should be scoring and assisting more with the talents he has . Arsenal are reported in the Daily Mail ( I know ...) as offering him a three /four year deal @ £300K per week . No wonder we're waving him goodbye , that's mental.
  10. You missed the "by one point with Ronaldo scoring 31 times in the process " bit out , thats Ronaldo who has called Juventus under Sarri "ordinary" . Carried by Hazard is now carried by Ronaldo . Conte is a far superior manager ( I know you don't like him though so no worries)

    Mixed bag for Havertz so far, missed two sitters, hit the bar with a snapshot and played an absolutely sublime crossfield pass, looks a player but I suppose we're paying for potential more than anything. If indeed we are after him.
  12. Transfer Talk Topic

    I can't imagine the furore with Arsenal making 55 workers redundant despite some of the players taking pay cuts is going to help them in offering Willian what he reportedly wants. Maybe he'll stay with us afterall.
  13. Transfer Talk Topic

    Me neither, versatile. Average in two or three positions.
  14. Transfer Talk Topic

    I'd swap AC for a Ginsters.

    Fulham back, Scott Parker did a number on Brentford.
  16. VAR and Chelsea

    Well , you've nailed it there. The issue is Mike Riley , he seems to have it in for us on a personal level , this is the bloke who's big idea is "in game management" by all accounts , a ludicrous and purposeful attempt to let the Referee influence the game within the framework of the laws. What he should be doing is ensuring that the laws of the game are employed evenly to all teams at all times with laws written in such a manner so as to be unambiguous and not open to personal interpretation . Mavis , has had it in for us since the Mourinho days where first he complained that Riley hadn't believed Petr Cech , who had a fractured skull was injured and tried to get him off the pitch , booking him for not moving quickly enough and secondly for having the temerity of going onto national television to complain about how our games were being refereed differently to everyone else's and our lack of penalties in the Premier League in comparison to the Champions League. One of Riley's jobs I understand is to allocate the particular ref to a particular game and he seemingly makes it his mission to always give us the scardy cat homer ref whenever we're away at a scrappy side so we get nothing ( See Foy , Chris , QPR) He's on a crusade to screw us over , no wonder we got Taylor given our previous I'm certain the cowardly little prat did it on purpose .

    I understand Branislav Ivanovic is off to Everton .

    And I believe a Chelsea supporter to boot.

    The Times has Zouma and Christensen down as on the transfer list.
  20. Arsenal 2 Chelsea 1

    The thing is, I understand what you are saying but I'm sure it's not as simple as press them we win goodnight. There will be all manner of instructions given to the players. I think we have wilfully thick senior players with a bit of the old green eye at the new players coming through. Mind you, we also managed to engineer a situation for ourself where half the squad don't even know if they're going to be here next year all whilst we were asking them to go for it so they lose their places to Werner, Ziyech and Havertz next season. Strange days.

    In fairness he did very little, you could see him half heartedly jog after Aubamayang for the second goal but it was a token effort.
  22. Arsenal 2 Chelsea 1

    Personally, I think after the first goal went in we thought we'd won the game and dived headfirst into complacency. I would imagine there has to be a meeting point between what the coach wants you to do and what you are able to do to combat your opponent and an understanding between the two parties. As destructive to our game plan the ball over the top to Aubamayang and Pepe was, the thing that really got my goat was constantly trying to play out of defence and inviting pressure onto ourselves when Alonso was stuck unable to go forward as he didn't have the pace to beat his man so kept having to give it back to Rudiger to hoof it into touch. It must have happened fifty times. Lampard mentioned that he could not understand why we kept doing that in his post match interview.

    Don't hold your breath!
