  1. Chelsea 0 Arsenal 1

    Bit wary of this one tonight, hopefully Tuchel has them playing for their places as Arsenal will be up for this and have absolutely nothing to lose by going for it.
  2. Premier League Run In - 2020/21

    I think they have quite a bit of focus on winning a trophy on Saturday, dont think we should take that one for granted
  3. West Ham United 0 Chelsea 1

    Yes we looked tired yesterday, wembley legs plus the distraction of the off field stuff maybe also contributed. But we will need more against the marshmen
  4. Media / Press

    to be fair Barney Ronay said as much in the Guardian yesterday
  5. Khobar's Legacy

    Its not just the sycophantic coverage of Liverpool and the myth peddling that they and they fans are somehow special or more worthy / passionate than others. It is also the protection of them, for examples look at how their defeats are played down, the mild language that is used. It is very rare that an article discussing the coaches failings or the teams is published and if it is it is very tame compared to those discussing other clubs. For comparison think how many negative Mourinho articles have appeared over the years. I get it that Klopp delivered what they wanted after all those decades but his subsequent moaning and offhand replies to the media are pretty much unchecked.

    When you look at it, Frank had it spot on re Klopp and his players. Got a lot of stick in the media re that but he was right this season has proved it.
  7. Premier League Run In - 2020/21

    I do kind of agree with this sadly but I think that the FA Cup game comes first may be an advantage as we dont play a league game before it that might distract us. The games either side of the Champions league are the key ones I think, so West Ham away which was a key fixture anyway and Fulham at home (discounting City away as I think we would lose anyway). You can also add Arsenal and Leicester home games is we get to the fac cup final. I'm hoping that Kovavic injury isn't that serious as I do think the ability to mix and match in the middle there has been a benefit and you fear that Kante is never far from an knock that puts him out. I think we do have our work cut out, I think that now that Liverpools only focus is top 4 they will probably get it ahead of us and that Leicester or west Ham get the other place. Personally would take getting to another Champs league final over qualifying for next year anyway.
  8. Chelsea 0 Porto 1 (2 - 1 on aggregate)

    I always think it is dangerous to go out to contain rather than try to win. I think we need to hold control but have a goal threat at the very least, Porto showed enough to suggest they are capable of turning the tie on its head.
  9. Crystal Palace 1 Chelsea 4

    Yes, was at that game right behind the goal ( borrowing a palace mates season ticket) it was similar.
  10. Crystal Palace 1 Chelsea 4

    Have to say in my 45 years of watching Chelsea that was the most comfortable away win at Palace, We actually have pretty decent record there actually with just the occasional defeat top endure but it is usually a tight game mostly with just the one or two goals in it. So saturday was very satisfying I must say that first half we were as dominant as I have seen us this season in the end I was almost dissapointed that we hadn't banged in a few more. Lovely to see Havertz in that form what a lovely player he is, Rudiger Zouma and Azpi were all excellent at the back too. Kovavic really is a top class player and Mount continues to develop too he will be some player is that continues. Hopefully a similar level performance tomorrow
  11. FC Porto 0 Chelsea 2

    I think much of our issues stem from out innability to take enough of our chances or create enough in the first place. Against West Brom for instance at 1-0 up we had a decent opportunity to make it 2-0 which wasnt taken then almost immediately came the red card and the unraveling of our control of the game. Second half we controlled it better but at the expense of many chances, at 1-2 we had some half chances again not taken and west brom broke and scored . Sometimes it feels that we aren't working an opposition defensively as much as we should, its like our cautiousness prevents cut back and keep possession rather than swing in a cross and stretch their defence. Of course that is the way of modern football I guess but as a fan frustrating to watch
  12. FC Porto 0 Chelsea 2

    Would have agreed but didn't athletico have to play 2 away games against us?
  13. I always see it as a tough game for us if we win usually its by a goal with the odd exception.
  14. Official: Chelsea Sign Timo Werner

    To be honest, if you analyse that video there are some bad misses in there but there are also some that a confident striker puts away with a clear mind. There are also some great saves and some dastardly luck. there's a player in there thats for sure and he is working defences even if he isn't scoring as many as we anticipated. 10 goals and 7 assists isn't a failure, had he signed for Liverpool and done this there wouldnt be a whisper in the media.

    That so called prank has the loony element of their cross city rivals written all over it.
