  1. Stoke City 0 Chelsea 4

    Of course, absurdly, bearing in mind the way they play, we are far more likely to get a red than they are.

    The Sub headline was "horror crash" T*ssers.
  3. Official: Chelsea Sign Diego Costa

    Zola certainly wasn't a CF in the mould of Drogba or Costa. A number 10, someone playing off one of those type of players. His record of a goal roughly every 4 games shows that. Costa's all round game is / was far superior to JFH and his goals per game record certainly superior, particularly when you discount penalty kicks. JFH never had the hold up play of a Costa / Drogba Crespo came a close 3rd for me. Great movement, great finisher, just never settled here. And if any doubt, yes, Drogba first. Edit - I seriosuly think people underestimate how good Costa was for us. He got to 50 PL goals in fewer games than Aguero, a player who is generally considered (and rightly so) one of the PL's all time greats. Not just number of goals either, but consitently important goals.

    Reports suggesting he has been in a serious car crash.........hope it is nonsense.

    2nd best centre forward I have seen. On his day an absolute beast. A great combo of power and class. Built for the PL. Thanks for the memories

    It's not an imaginary point. You stated that you didn't agree with those who think we have had sustained success since RA bought the club. I argued otherwise. Case in point, since summer 2003 we have won 14 major trophies in 14 seasons, whilst going no longer than 1 season without winning a trophy. If that isn't "sustained success" I am not sure what is. In the same period as a comparison, the trophies won by others: United 13, City and Arsenal 5 each.
  7. Chelsea Reserve & Youth Team

    Agreed on all counts. People need to be patient with the young players. I am sure if Ampadu is shipped out on loan there will be uproar, but he is 17, the same age as when Christiensen first emerged. 4 years, and a 2 year loan spell later, he is getting chances, at 21.

    If you could pick him at the right price (whatever that is) would be a huge shot in the arm. Obviously cup tied but you could certainly manage Morata for the latter stages of the CL (God willing)

    Cavani in January anyone?
  10. Chelsea 5 Nottingham Forest 1

    Well since the Porto - Monaco final of 2004, Lyon are the only French team to have gone beyond the QF, with one semi final appearance in 2011 and no Portuguese club has gone beyond the QFs in the same period. Portugal also have the benefit of an 18 team league The last thing we or any English team in the CL needs, is a 2 legged midweek semi final in January on the back of our mad Xmas period, then a Cup Final in late Feb (which then gives you another midweek domestic fixture) just when the knockout stages of the CL gets serious. If we scrap the league cup, we can bring the FA cup forward, and alleviate fixture congestion all round. Hell, maybe even have time for a winter break.

    So the countries who have clubs competing at the business end of the CL have one cup competition.
  12. Chelsea 5 Nottingham Forest 1

    Blimey, he has only just joined and we are worried about keeping him! League Cup has become an absolute joke BTW. Didn't realise until this morning that Forrest made 9 changes. If the lower league teams can't even be bothered to put put a full team and give themselves any hope of any upset, then what has it become? We're the only major nation to bother with 2 domestic cups. Time to scrap it.

    Compared to pre Roman, it absolutely has been. Longest trophy drought since he took over? One season.
  14. Chelsea 5 Nottingham Forest 1

    I don't see Ampadu starting. Last season in the EFL Trophy, Conte didn't even start Chalobah at home to Bristol Rovers. I don't see Fabregas starting either after the amount he has played recently
  15. Following Chelsea's Loans

    In respect of RLC, my Palace supporting mates say he has been their best player each time he has played (including his appearances under De Boer) , but currently struggles to complete 90 minutes. He was subbed on Saturday as he was knackered.
