  1. Southampton 1 Chelsea 4

    Ah yes, ITV's version of Blue Peter. Remember it well.
  2. Southampton 1 Chelsea 4

    Good result and performance again. We must stop doing some ridiculous things at the back though, against the better sides we'll pay for it. Abraham and Mount again showed why they deserve to be in the team, and ditto Willlian and Jorginho, who have taken plenty of stick in the last year or so. Southampton look a poor side, it'll be a long hard season for them. And how did Wolves beat City? We peed all over them at Molineux just a few weeks ago. And the thought of Plopp's team winning the league is making me sick! I hope they do a Newcastle back in '96 and blow it!

    Rather belated, but Peter Beardsley banned from football for racist remarks to Newcastle youth players. Imagine the uproar if that happened at our club. Never liked Beardsley, I remember him and his boss Keegan moaning about us getting David Batty sent off, when it clearly a red card incident back in '96/97 I think.

    Couldn't have happened to a nicer fella! His challenge on Elliot was scandalous, but the muppets in the press chose to ignore it. Hopefully he will also be sacked by BT Sport, but I'm not holding my breath.

    Bill Oddie is another Chelsea fan.
  6. Chelsea 1 Leicester 1

    Good first half, but we really struggled for most of the second half. Dave was poor again at right back, but Zappacosta is certainly not the answer. Emmerson was good again, I think the left back spot is now his own, Christeansen And Zouma could do with an experienced partner (Rudiger) with them. Kante was as per usual excellent, Jorginho was OK, Pulisic had his moments, Mount - what a star, he could be the new Lamps. Pedro started well but faded, Giroud was good and unfortunate to be subbed, and Abraham tried his heart out but still very raw. As for Willian, he seemsto have lost the ability to even kick a ball straight. Despite this slow start, I am still fully behind Frank, hopefully we'll take our frustration out on on Norwich this Saturday. COME ON YOU BLUES!
  7. Season prediction

    My predictions:: 1 Man City Still the team to beat, and my tip to win the Champions League as well. They've got mega rich owners, a top manager and players to boot. Unstoppable IMHO. 2 Liverpool The only team capable of challenging City for the title, getting 96 points and still not winning the title is incredible. Have loads of firepower and a good defence and midfield as well. 3 Tottenham Same as the last few years, just not quite consistent enough to win PL. But, unfortunately, they are better than we are ATM. Like Liverpool, have plenty of goals in them, but not as good in defence or midfield. 4 Chelsea More in hope than expectancy. Hazard will be impossible to replace, I just hope Pulisic and the young player (whichever ones Frank gives an opportunity to) step up to the plate. 5 Manr United I don't know what the fuss about them is, they are just abunch of individuals rather than a team. Pogba is a joke, Wan Bissaka isn't what he is cracked up to be and Harry Maguire is just a fat version of Rio Ferdinand. The manager isn't great either. 6 Arsenal Like Man United, just a bunch of individuals ather than a team. The keeper isn't particularly great, the midfield is unbalanced and their defence is a disaster waiting to happen. Their forwards are good though, but they can't keep carrying the team. 7 Everton Will have their ups and downs, but with the right signings and a bit more consistency can be the best of the rest outside the top six. 8 Wolves Neat and tidy side, but lack a bit of firepower at times, and being in the Europa league might hinder rather than help their chances of improving on last years' fine effort 9 C Palace Depends whether they can keep Zaha, but with Roy Hodgson at the helm, they are in safe hands. 10 Leicester Not sure what to make of them. The one worry for them is Jamie Vardy isn't getting any younger, and not exactly watertight at the back either. Lots of creativity in the team though. 11 West Ham Same old, same old. Arnoutovic is no great loss though, he's more trouble than he's worth Should have no problems about a relegation battle. 12 Watford Form faded badly at the end of lat season, and that cup final hammering by Man City will still be fresh in the mind. Mind you, they're manger Javi Gracia is a shrewd operator and will keep them afloat for another season at least. Only worry is Troy Deeney is the wrong side of 30, how many more seasons will they get out of him? 13 Bournemouth Full of goals in attack, but also full of holes at the back. For me, it's the former category that will be the reason they survive once again, they play good football unlike several other teams I could mention. 14 Norwich For me, the best equipped of the promoted teams to survive. Play fearless attacking football, if Teemu Pukki can score 15 goals or more, they'll be fine. A bit leaky at the back though. 15 Southampton Ralph Hassenhutl did well to keep them up last season, he made them better organised at the back but they struggled to score goals. Danny Ings was too injury prone, Shane Long is a willing worker but not a good finisher, and Charlie Austin has been a huge flop thus far. They will be hoping Che Adams can remedy the chronic lack of goals, 16 Burnley Would love it if they went down, horrible team and manager to boot. But will probably stay up again, with their cynical tactics. Lack of goals again could be the problem, Ashley Barnes and Chris Wood don't score too many goals. 17 Newcastle The fat one has gone, but the other fat one (Mike Ashley) is still there, so that means more doom and gloom for the Geordie faithful. Whatever you think of Steve Bruce, he's in a lose-lose situation. Both strikers Rondon and Perez have gone, and be given buttons and beads as cash to replace them. The only reason I feel they'll survive is there are 3 worse teams than them. 18 Brighton The decision to sack Chris Hughton will come back to bite them on the backside. OK, they slid down the table towards the end of last season, but Graham Potter as Hughton's replacement? What did he do at Swansea that was so great I ask? If you gave me a choice between Hughton or Potter to manage my team, I would pick Hughton every time. Glen Murray can't go on foreever, and there is a lack of creativity in the team as well. They're going down. 19 Aston Villa A welcome return to the PL, but Jack Grealish apart, none of their players are top flight standard. A long, hard season beckons., and it will end in relegation. 20 Sheff Utd Chris Wilder has worked miracles there, and he'll have to work another one if the Blades are to survive in the ruthless world of the Premiership. Unfortunately, I think they will come up well short. Other predictions: Champions League: Man City Europa League: Don't know TBH FA Cup: Chelsea Carabao Cup: Tottenham Championship (Automatic): West Brom, Leeds Championship Play-offs: Bristol City, Fulham, Boro, Derby League 1: Sunderland League 2 Plymouth . That's it.
  8. Frank Lampard Appointed Chelsea Head Coach

    Arjen Robben was an absolutely brilliant player for us between 2004-2006. His final season with us was poor, and he also had a mediocre time at Real Madrid, but at Bayern Munich he returned to top form once again. Good luck to him on his retirement, a top man and a top player.
  9. Frank Lampard Appointed Chelsea Head Coach

    I can't believe the negativity of some people here. They're reacting as though we've brought in Roberto Martinez, Tony Pulis or Sam Allardyce. Who else is there out there? Name names. And finally, don't be a plank, back Frank!
  10. Frank Lampard Appointed Chelsea Head Coach

    The legend is back! Welcome home Frank, and good luck, you're really going to need it. I hope he doesn't suffer the way Robbie Di Matteo did, or worse still, John Hollins many moons ago.
  11. That sounds exactly like any manager talking about his most talented player, and is patently not a ‘dig’ (or a ‘slap down’ as it was deemed in the Daily Mirror) in any language but Tabloidese; the Italian did not ‘reveal the hidden cost of having £150million man Eden Hazard in your team’, and not just because Eden Hazard absolutely did not cost £150m. Andrew Dillon is a poor man's pillock. Nothing he writes makes any sense whatsoever, ignore the fool.
  12. Official: Eden Hazard Joins Real Madrid

    Top man and top player. As far as I'm concerned, a legend as well. No arrogance nor a bad attitude, unlike certain modern day players from other teams I could mention. Goodbye Eden and good luck, you will be sorely missed.
  13. Non Chelsea: Champions League

    Rubbish match, made even worse by BT Sport's amatuerish presentation and commentary. Why do you need 2 summarisers in the commentary box? Mythmanaman and Jenas are absolute toilet as summarisers, I hope BT lose the UCL rights, people moan abut Sky but BT are 100 times worse.
  14. Chelsea 4 Arsenal 1

    Crap season. Sack this **** now! Only joking! Absolutely phenomenal from the boys yesterday. Hazard was different class once again and will be sorely missed next season, Kovacic had his best game for us, Giroud, Pedro and Kante were also superb. felt sorry for Petr Cech, if it wasn't for him we could hae had 7 or 8. Arsenal, and Ozil in particular, were a joke, I despair at anybody who rates him, having Ozil in your team is the equivalent of playing with 10 men. Koscielny, Sokratis, Monreal and Kolasinac couldn't defend a sandcastle, Dick Emery really will have his work cut out next season. As for Sarri, he does deserve to stay, yes I have have criticised him at times, but credit where it's due, his tactics yesterday were spot on. If he goes, who do we replace him with? Frank Lampard? Nope. Hasn't got the experience, and I certainly dont wan't him to end up like John Hollins or Roberto Di Matteo. A third coming for Mourinho? No way Jose! He's more trouble than he's worth, and past it as a coach, his defensive football doesn't work anymore. Allegri isn't going to come, neither is Simeone. Well done Sarri and the boys, you have done u proud.
