    So why do so many of us disagree with you? A cretinous post following a 3-1 opening day win.
  2. Brighton and Hove Albion 1 Chelsea 3

    People were (rightly) complaining about the defending last season. The CBs were both solid this game. There was an occasion where I think Dunk got a free header but thats about it. The goal should've been a routine save for Kepa as much as I feel sorry for the bloke. If anything, we looked short of attacking ideas and I can't help but feel that's to do with the fact we were playing Loftus-Cheek who looks utterly shot and Pulisic wasn't available. Havertz was also poor but can hardly be blamed after being with the team for a week. Whether you think Frank is up to the task or not, this match is not a good example to support the argument that he's not.

    Just listened to The Guardian football podcast and Barry Glendenning has tipped us to finish 6th.
  4. Official: Chelsea Sign Kai Havertz

    Admittedly only watched him on YouTube, which can make anyone look like a world beater. However, one thing you can tell is that he has a great number of strengths. Great touch, great passer, fairly quick, strong, good in the air, good finisher. Not sure about tackling but he looks like he has everything. Our attack will be frighteningly good next season.

    Apparently so!!

    Hope Timo doesn't turn into the next Mateja...

    If I didn't, that really would be embarrassing and naive.

    I think it's embarrassing and naive. It's obviously the right thing to do. The selling club doesn't know whether Leverkusen have to sell Havertz (or to what extent that's the case) and until he's sold they haven't got a massive pot of cash available. Praying for them to be relegated because they're looking out for their own interests in a negotiation is childish.

    Haha - bit harsh!

    My understanding is we offered Willian 2 years and he wanted 3.

    There is no way Mount won't be in the first team next season. I also think James will. I don't know what the Tomori issue is but I'd personally like to see him back in the first team next season, next to a new CB1.

    VAR may have just cost us the top 4!!

    It was exactly good enough. Nothing more and nothing less. It wasn't a good performance but they did what needed to be done.
  14. Chelsea 1 Norwich City 0

    So? You've watched enough football to know that some days teams show up and other days they don't. Them being bottom of the league doesn't mean we automatically get to hammer them 6-0.

    Cherry-picking, really. Giroud could've had a hat trick on a better day and Tammy should've been there for James's cross late on. Once we got the first I never felt too uneasy - we were pretty solid. They were just hard to break down.

    Lots of people complaining about the performance. I thought it was professional - shame not to get the second but we got the 3 points.
  17. Sheffield United 3 Chelsea 0

    I don't think any of Kepa, Christensen or Rudiger are poor players, I just think none of them are good enough for a title challenging side. I think one of Zouma or Tomori (probably Tomori if the plan is to have 2x ball playing defenders) is good enough to be CB2. Kepa is not as good as Cudicini, who we had as our GK2 for a while (and who, before his motorcycle crash, was a great GK1). I like Alonso as a wing back. He lacks pace but he has a mighty strike on him and takes a wicked free kick. I don't think he is good enough defensively as a left back. As many have said, I think to challenge we'll need to replace 3 out of 5 of the "back 5". Our current defence is not even a top 4 defence. Thank god for Leicester. Chelsea v Leicester in the battle for who can bottle it harder!
  18. Sheffield United 3 Chelsea 0

    These are my feelings exactly. That was insipid. I think that was our worst performance of the season on the basis that I don't feel like we came close to scoring once all game.
  19. Crystal Palace 2 Chelsea 3

    That was a shocking performance except for the first 20 minutes (which was amazing) and the short period where Jorginho came on and started running the show Still, 3 points will do nicely!
  20. Crystal Palace 2 Chelsea 3

    Yeah - what an unbelievable change.
  21. Crystal Palace 2 Chelsea 3

    I'm sure there's more to it than pride.
  22. Crystal Palace 2 Chelsea 3

    You have to laugh. Zaha and Benteke in the same game!!
  23. Chelsea 3 Watford 0

    He has been very poor for us at times but I think today's performance will be a tough one to criticise!
  24. Chelsea 3 Watford 0

    Oh, and Zouma. I feel much more comfortable with him at the back instead of Rudiger.
