  1. It will take a 2012 miracle for us to win this one. Man City had a wonderfully dominant season and is a better team than us at the moment. I don’t count our two close victories this season against their B sides as a estimate of where we stand. While our team been proving that it’s falling short in the business end of a season. Looks glum but it’s only one game and anything is possible. A decision going our way, a moment of madness from a player or a brilliant strike from our attacker. So we will see I suppose.
  2. Chelsea 0 Leicester City 1

    Fair enough, we are probably the least liked BIG team in England. I am just surprised people are still not used to it. We never cared about this too much as long as we won....
  3. Chelsea 2 Leicester City 1

    Defiantly DONT want James at CB. There he loses his main assets - explosiveness down the right. Azpi still good enough to hold off Vardy, and either way beibg overly cautious and paying so much respect to Leicester is not the right attitude for this fixture.
  4. Chelsea 0 Leicester City 1

    Oh so VAR and Gary Lineker is the reason why Tommy Tactics bottled the final? Got it. Why are people so surprised media wanted the underdog to win? Why are people surprised VAR is a dodgy system?
  5. Chelsea 0 Leicester City 1

    I know TT blames his line up but it was strong enough to beat Arsenal. Havertz and Jorginho disasterclass is what cost us. Simple as that.
  6. Chelsea 0 Leicester City 1

    Do I sense sarcasm In this? Is it a theory where Andreas pretends to be injured after blunders?
  7. Real Madrid 1 Chelsea 1

    CHOs finishing is very poor. Not to say Werner deserves more game time, I just wouldn’t claim that CHO is a natural finisher.
  8. Real Madrid 1 Chelsea 1

    This was a missed opportunity. Madrid was knackered and there for the taking. A much harder game awaits us next week with several of their big players coming back. Surely Werner played himself out of starting 11 with this showing? Just not good enough for that type of BIG games. Puslic on the other hand rises again. Overall I would say we got no real advantage going forward but about reduced two leg affair to one decisive game. Let’s see...
  9. Chelsea 1 Manchester City 0

    Looks good to me, I do wonder If Werner been rested all this time or out of favour....
  10. Real Madrid 1 Chelsea 1

    I want all our experience and guile for this tie. Would be great to include pros like Azpi, T Silva and Grioud for the first away game. My line up would be mendy Azpi Silva Rudi James Kova Kante Chilly Mount Giroud Pulisic/Zeych
  11. West Ham United 0 Chelsea 1

    Repeat of 2012 with us winning CL and FA cup is my dream. I don't mind finishing 6th for that ;)
  12. Chelsea 0 Porto 1 (2 - 1 on aggregate)

    Yeah that would be admirable If we did pull that type of tactical loss agaisnt the likes of Bayern, City, Madrid... But I suppose losing to Porto just doesn’t sit right with me. reminds me how toothless our attack can be.
  13. Chelsea 0 Porto 1 (2 - 1 on aggregate)

    Didn’t like this. Thought that we were too sloppy in final third and too cautious in general approach. We just didn’t play like a CL winning side. We did lose this game in the end. highly doubt we will get to the final past Madrid. I am Happy with semi final though. Just not this performance.
  14. Chelsea 0 Porto 1 (2 - 1 on aggregate)

    This was awful. Deserved loss. yet happy to be in semi ... let’s hope we belong there and not get Trashed.

    You got it all Mr Prophet
  17. Really? I believe Alonso, he has been a great servant to this club. It's not a secret now that Frank lost the dressing room. He is always been legend of a club but never been a "Mr Nice Guy". Lampard is gone now, do we still need to dislike the players he personally fell out with? Is that his managerial legacy?
  18. Chelsea 3 West Ham United 0

    I am not sure that Werner’s poor form has anything to do with adapting to EPL. I feel like we tend to overestimate premier league and how difficult it is to play in England. After all Werner played against top oppositions in Germany. Also he is not exactly struggling with getting into the game, he is never really marked out completely. I think on average he finds himself in at least 2 very good scoring positions per game. It’s the final output which lets him down time and time again for a while now. I think it’s purely down to something simple like confidence and luck. Basically he is doing a “Morata”

  20. Newcastle United 0 Chelsea 2

    Liverpool made an easy work out of Leicester. Dippers should not be underrated this season. If anything Man City is the one with more problems including new contract for Pep..
  21. Chelsea 4 Crystal Palace 0

    They would beat us even without Mane or Allison. With Frank trying to play low block with a shaky defence and goalkeeper with no confidence. Instead of trying to expose Liverpool’s own early season frailties. As for players setting to the league, Villa had an ex championship player scoring a hat trick tonight.
  22. Chelsea 4 Crystal Palace 0

    Our B side is miles better than Villa’s or Leed’s A sides... Unfortunately, Frank misjudged the situation and came up with a wrong answer. Pure managerial inexperience.
  23. Chelsea 4 Crystal Palace 0

    I was being slightly sarcastic but we had decent players available for that game. Frank chose a wrong tactic of sitting back instead of going at a weak LivperooL defence.
  24. Chelsea 4 Crystal Palace 0

    Yeah.... how did we manage to lose to this dreadful Liverpool side???

    Fun line up but defenders and central midfield are very weak .
