  1. Chelsea vs Leicester City

    Agree on James, he’s been a revelation. Still have reservations about CHO - is it me, or is he trying to prove something rather than just doing his job in a team structure? And Dave is unfortunately fading slowly.
  2. Chelsea vs Leicester City

    Singing in Shed lower has diminished of late, mainly due to removal of racism (Spurs songs), bad language (Liverpool and match official related), sexist (celery) etc. Perhaps we need one politically incorrect match a year (Dippers or Spuds) where the old songs can be nurtured and passed on to the youth as our legacy, but more importantly so that we can be reminded how far we have come as woke, caring humans (and incidentally to have a f*c*ing good sing song). A propos incorrect stewarding, my daughter - then eight - was told she couldn’t hang her silk Chelsea scarf over the balcony of the West Upper (so mummy would know where we were when she looked on the telly), as it might fall on the people below. They were corporate sponsors. And had pints of beer on the edge of their balcony.

    Eddie Waring, he of the "it's an up and under" (whatever that was) fame. Often at the oddly named Knocke-Heist.

    Yeh, my missus was quite fond of him too - I liked him, but not <that> much ;-)

    Chillwell for Alonso, and I’d agree. Alonso on later if needed
  7. Chelsea 0 Arsenal 1

    And when we do, it seems inexorably drawn to the stands above …
  8. Chelsea 0 Arsenal 1

    True, Ham, but in my experience you make your own luck, and in that respect we have been …. Somewhat deficient.
  9. Chelsea 0 Leicester City 1

    Quite agree - I didn’t manage to get to the old Wembley, but have managed several at the new one, and the sense of occasion is a bit … well … flat. 30 years ago, I lived in Acton and remember seeing the team fly in on a chopper from Selsdon Park nr Croydon, then could hear the cheer from my back garden when a goal went in. Magic.

    Quite, Jane - why Brazil’s captain was not good enough for Chelsea …. Always escaped me.

    On a good day, I'd totally agree. However .............

    He's not coming back here, is he?

    No problemo, ChrisP. I wear similar myself - the only lapse being buying a home shirt with "Hazard" on the back (which turned out to be the right size except for a tight neck and now resides at the back of the wardrobe) after too many beers before a match, an because they wouldn't print one with "Mourinho" on it (it was the day he departed).

    Lineker has a lot to answer for - he is obviously more influential than I had suspected ...

    Starts what? That man couldn’t start a fire in a gunpowder factory. Mendy any day.
  17. Manchester City vs Chelsea

    Apart from him being 44 and having - according to Wikipedia - "a chatty and quirky approach to refereeing", not a lot ...
  18. Manchester City vs Chelsea

    Bain Marie, could knock those out in the Far East - they’d never know. And I don’t mean Southend!
  19. Chelsea 0 Arsenal 1

    They still have an outside chance of Ropey, so they’ll not roll over. Giroud on 60 minutes. Good rehearsal for the remaining cups for us.

    Wanna bet? Hope you're right ...

    They were magic - nearly as good as the left-handed golf balls Phil Mickelson uses - you wanna buy a box?

    Here's just the training aide for him ...

    Jeez ... nobody expects the political police! (Particularly when tongues are firmly in cheeks)
