    Darren Fletcher. Usually pairs up with McManaman. I don't find Fletcher nearly as bad as Darke, but I can't stand McManaman. I suppose they need a token Liverpool fan, though. For balance.

    Also, this team is picked by BT commentator Ian Darke, who's always been on the side of our opponents whenever he does our games, which is far too frequently.

    https://twitter.com/ESPNUK/status/1529492495855394825?s=20&t=LgNu1WTWcUIf-5vYgECNzw 3 Chelsea players make his worst XI of the season.
  4. We bid for him last summer https://www.skysports.com/football/news/11095/12356350/erling-haaland-chelseas-informal-proposal-for-borussia-dortmund-striker-turned-down-by-bundesliga-side
  5. Why was this not possible when it came to ticket sales, merchandise etc?

    We were the baddy dating back to the Headhunters and then Ken Bates. RA and José (and JT) were just more reasons for them to despise us.

    The Guardian, after keeping on as their Chelsea correspondent the guy who wished a career-ending injury on Lampard and who mocked the death of Matthew Harding, are now just trolling. Their five young players of the season: Saka, Foden, Gallagher, Kulusevski, Sessegnon.
  9. Khobar's Legacy

    His English his so good you'd think he'd know the English language has adopted the word from his native tongue.

    Be nice if Lukaku covered as much ground after his first touch.

    I would hope Reece James is at least nominated for young player of the year.
  12. Chelsea 2 Watford 1

    He was on astonishing form last night. Let two players (Ayew and DCL) get away with dangerous scissor tackles and they both went on to score.
  13. Chelsea 1 Leicester City 1

    Great farewell from Rudi. He will be badly missed.;
  14. Chelsea 1 Leicester City 1

    Well. Maybe, because Sky failed to mention on Monday that we'd achieved top 4, it hasn't really happened yet.
  15. Champions League 21/22

    Flew on an early-morning flight from Birmingham to Frankfurt, then train to Stuttgart and then train to Munich. Saved a fortune compared to flying from any of the London airports. Spectacular atmosphere all over the city-centre. We were massively outnumbered. I remember the Bayern fans chanting "Chelsea, Chelsea, Who the **** are Chelsea?" but it was good humoured. The police seemed to be successful at shepherding Chelsea fans into squares on our own. Watched the game in a bar about two minutes from Marienplatz. It was 98% Chelsea, with a couple of very good-natured Germans, who seemed to enjoy the incredible atmosphere. It was just out of this world. Total and utter pandemonium by the end. The poor waitresses - who were phenomenal for the first 88 minutes, serving beers non-stop - were utterly terrified by the unreal celebrations and just buggered off, so you then had to queue at the bar, from where you couldn't see the screen, so I don't think they sold much beer from the moment we equalised. By the end, dozens of cops lined up outside the bar and I was a bit worried they might storm the place to calm everything down, but they were very good and let everyone go mental. We then went round to the square by the Hofbrauhaus, which was also fantastic, with hundreds of Chelsea fans just going nuts. Marienplatz was rammed and seemed to be 90% Bayern fans, who were obviously gutted but I didn't witness any trouble. We had a few drinks in a bar by the station before catching the 2am train. One Bayern fan gave my young nephew his half-and -half scarf, which was a nice gesture. The crush at the station was not pleasant, but we managed to find seats in a packed train. They must have laid on extra carriages as the train went on for miles. Just a magical weekend in every way.
  16. Champions League 21/22

    Less violent than Diaby on JT, which could have killed him. And which didn't warrant any sanction from the ref. Blatant pen and yellow.
  17. Sounds promising.

    Of course, but it was still weird they didn't even mention it.
  19. Chelsea 1 Leicester City 1

    It'll be a weight off Lukaku's shoulders.

    Sky have written us put of the CL qualification story. I don't think they mentioned us once tonight and even when they showed the table after the game they failed to point out what Arsenal's defeat means for us.
  21. Chelsea 1 Leicester City 1

    A draw will do it.

    I don't like Johnathan Wilson but this was good today: He then immediately reverts to type: I would avoid the rest, which is his usual pretentious, pompous sh!te.
  23. Transfer Talk Topic

    Impressive list! I've seen the majority of those names in various stories about us in recent years. The most recurrent names are Koundé and Tchouaméni, and it seems likely we'll make a genuine attempt to get both of them.

    Just saw on another site "Will Tuchel be counting his chickens that Abramovich is no longer in charge at Chelsea? Trophyless season has usually meant the boot in the Russkie era." If The Dippers had won the Super Cup and the World Club championship, would the BBC be saying the FA Cup was their second trophy this season? It seems noone noticed us winning stuff this year. (Apart from Craig Burley, who cringed at us celebrating them)
