  1. Spot on! It's disgraceful that a talentless weasel like Emenalo still has a job when Jose has been fired. When we hopefully get knocked out of the Champions League (in the unlikely event we ever get back in) by Jose's next team, hopefully the board will realise how stupid they have been. In the interim, all we can hope for is a new and sane owner and a fresh start (I.e. no baggage that will prevent bringing back the right manager).
  2. Hopefully there will be a purge in the summer and we will be able to get rid of Hazard, Oscar, Fabregas, Costa and Ivanovic that let Jose down so badly. At the end of the day, talent is nothing without desire or application. Give me a Vardy over a Costa any day of the week.
  3. Or the players were not committed or determined enough to take on-board Jose's methodology, which would have made them more well-rounded players and part of a better team. The overall impression from a lot of them at the moment (especially Haxard) is that they have realised the Premier League is now exceptionally demanding each week and they don't the challenge/would rather be in Spain where they only have two or three tough domestic games each season. We have to make it clear these players have lost any respect the majority of fans had for them and that they have no place at our club. In short, they are spineless scum and any trophies we win with this current squad will always feel very tainted.
  4. So we've just fired arguably the best manager in the world and unarguably the greatest manager in the history of the club that genuinely loved Chelsea to appease a bunch of craven, cowardly and overpaid mercenaries. Everyone that is going to the game on Saturday should make their thoughts known by the booing the scum on the pitch and chanting Jose's name for 90 minutes.
  5. The crucial thing is that the considerable majority of fans still realise that Jose is easily the best man for the job and any replacement would be a massive step down in quality. What this season has made clear is that a worrying number of players in the squad do not have the long term desire, mental toughness to be capable of being worthy of wearing the shirt or playing for Jose. The best possible course of action for the board to take now is to back Jose to the hilt in the January transfer window and dispose of the players (Ivanovic, Fabregas, Oscar and Costa) that have shown they are not fit to play for the club. If we get rid of Jose, I confidently predict that next season, he will be lifting the CL with either PSG or Real and we will be struggling to get into the Europa League, whereas with Jose and a half-decent squad that actually care, we could challenge for the title.

    Absolutely perplexed that Cahill is starting. Zouma has been playing excellently recently and is far better long term prospect whereas Cahill has been a consistent liability this season and should either be sold in the summer or relegated to being back-up. Also sends out completely the wrong message to younger players looking to make an impact.

    Cahill and Ivanovic both need a sustained spell on the bench. Time to give Zouma and Luis a proper chance - it's not like things can be worse than they were today.

    Not quite sure why my post about Lampard was deleted. Is it not permitted to legitimately criticise former players for their obviously duplicitous and disloyal actions these days?

    Mikel starts, Chelsea lose.

    Eden's finishing skills (or complete lack of) is killing us. Can't believe we're going to lose our unbeaten record to this pathetic bunch of mediocrities.
  11. Newcastle 2 Chelsea 1

    Need to get Cahill of asap. He's a total liability at the moment.
  12. Liverpool 1 Chelsea 2

    Agreed - the team pretty much picks itself these days. I'd be extremely surprised if the starting eleven wasn't: Courtouis Ivanovic Cahill Terry Apzilicueta Matic Fabregas Willian Oscar Hazard Costa This actually isn't a bad time to play Liverpool. A combination of their recent results and Rodgers resting players on Tuesday means that there is an increased expectation on Liverpool to attack and win, rather than just draw, the game. This should suit our squad perfectly. Given that there isn't a single Liverpool player that would get anywhere near our starting eleven at the moment (except for possibly Sturridge), I feel relatively confident about this one.
  13. Manchester United 1 Chelsea 1

    And we still have Hazard, Oscar, Fabregas, Willian and defenders that actually know how to defend. Don't quite get the rampant pessimism of some people on here.

    An unnecessary injury is one that is occurred when a player is playing in an unnecessary game (I.e. any international game). Ultimately international football is an anachronism because, at the very highest level, it restricts who can take part based on completely arbitrary factor like where someone was born. Take a players like Ryan Giggs and George Best, for instance. They never got the chance to play in a World Cup simply because they happended to be Welsh and Irish respectively and there was nothing they could do to change that. In my mind, that is ridiculous. Contrast that with the Premier League and the Champions League, where players from across the globe can play regardless of their nationality and where they come from. That is why the top leagues and european football should be regarded as the pinnacle of the game and international football is a (expensive and costly from a club's perspective) joke. With regards to your point about nationalism in relation to a particular city or club, it is true that some people still take this narrow-minded approach. In this day and age though, surely most people accept that is fine for a fan to pick a club for whatever reason, provided that once they've chosen that club, they do actually stick with it through thick and fine regardless?
