    These shows are interesting for sure. I can't say I'd be at all interested in watching the Man City one, but I really enjoyed both seasons of 'Sunderland Til I Die' - really compelling show
  2. Brighton and Hove Albion 1 Chelsea 3

    I was sort of basing it on not knowing if both were fit to start. Obviously I'd happily put both in for RLC and Jorginho if they're ready
  3. Brighton and Hove Albion 1 Chelsea 3

    I think I'd go: Kepa Azpi Rudiger Zouma Alonso Jorginho Kante CHO RLC Mount Werner

    Agreed. I'd have thought if the pre-season is short and a target weight is clear, then the best ploy would be to hit the gym, go for a run or hire a PT to work with every day. And not eat loads of biscuits.... Obviously

    Well, of course. I'm expecting some movement over the next two to three weeks. Hoping we can sell at least a couple permanently however. Gets us closer to a minimal net spend for all of our business, wages off the bill etc. Or even frees up a few funds for a Rice-like purchase near the end of the window. No doubt we'll get the usual Sky Sports nonsense to go with deadline day too. Bit harsh on Ron Burgundy your comparison though 😉

    Simon Johnson has posted that his sources have told them this isn't true and no one at the club wants to sell Giroud & he seems happy to stay. I can think of half a dozen players I'd be trying to move on before I looked to sell Giroud tbh. Doesn't ring true that the club would be looking to sell a senior player with the qualities he has right now
  7. Chelsea vs Liverpool

    I hope we use all of our oligarch-owned power to absolutely smoke them. Or fluke our way to a 1-0 win after they've hit the bar six times

    A period where I daresay it would have been a fair bit easier - 1-11 and occasionally 12 😄 Guessing the complication then was remembering which player wore 9 one week and who wore it the next
  9. A Chelsea Style Question

    1995/96 Newcastle immediately spring to mind. Blew a 10 point lead due to their rock & roll football slowing up and their defence leaking more than a detached radiator pipe. I'm all for attacking flair, but no team is winning the title without having a decent goalie and defence. We all know that for top sides, there are days when it clicks and you score 4, 5 or 6, but there are plenty of times where you need to be able to see out a 1-0 or 2-1 - especially away from home. Ball-playing defenders and playing out from the back is a lovely thing to do, but sometimes the blunt basics of hoofing the ball out for a throw-in over the halfway line or straight into the upper tier of the crowd is fine. I'd like to see a bit more of the latter from us this season.
  10. New Kits

    CarefreeYouth on Twitter reporting that Henry Lawrence wore Gilmour's 47 in the EFL cup game the other night. Could be indicative that there is a change coming for Gilmour ?
  11. New Kits

    He's injured for at least the next few weeks, so maybe in January if at all? Odd that he's still up at 47 though, would have expected it to change regardless
  12. VAR and Chelsea

    https://www.skysports.com/football/news/11095/12067661/var-yougov-survey-finds-51-per-cent-of-fans-say-video-referral-system-has-done-badly 51 percent??? Did they only poll United and Liverpool fans or something?

    Lets be thankful he was born in Jamaica then! His talent, charisma and superstar factor deserved a lot more than just being another guy in a helmet in the most tedious sport going.

    Surely we can get a Goalie kit that incorporates a long coat as part of the look? 😄
