Expectations For 2016/17 Season?

236 posts in this topic

All above posts show a natural true Chelsea  approach knowing too much  optimism will challenge the Football Gods .

After all this is the club that voted a lunatic goalkeeper  Player oF the Year and continued to cheer Kezman on despite his inability to score (and greeted his penalty  goal with sheer delight!)

 

Guess all this  says more about the real spirit of the  fans than some of the recent somewhat tawdry bickering on certain sites..

Newcastle in 96 were top and cruising but got overtaken by United. Not sure if it was as many as 10 clear though

I can tell you they were 12 points clear on Jan 20th, and still 9 points and a game in hand clear in mid-February.
But they lost the lead by late March.

Yup, don't think anyone has been 10 clear in April and managed to screw it up

Yep tend to agree with that. City at home could be tricky but you would fancy us to be able to get maximum points in the others. The key for us this season has also been good recoveries from dissapointing results since the Arsenal and Liverpool games back at the start of the season.

Still one game at a time...
