  1. ... and when he did make a mistake (the cross he spilled but regathered at Son's feet) he didn't go to pieces as he might have done a few years back. I'm much less concerned about Mendy missing games because of ACoN. I'm sure that - in spite of being behind Mendy - being brought on for the penalty shoot-out (and making the winning save) in the Super Cup did his confidence a power of good.
  2. R.I.P. Tributes

    Eminently sensible
  3. Tottenham Hotspur 0 Chelsea 3

    As Droy has pointed out in posts elsewhere, last season we essentially had three 10s playing fluidly across the line, creating chances (but sadly not finishing them). Now we have two 10s and a genuine number 9 who can finish. It'll take a little while yet for some to adjust to new roles. We're only 5 league games into the season!
  4. Tottenham Hotspur 0 Chelsea 3

    100% agree. I fully expect players to have dips in form/off days. Yes it's disappointing that both Mount and Havertz are going through a bad patch, but I fully expect them to come roaring back. Meantime, even with 'only' 9 fully functioning players we're still seeing off teams with relative ease. I'm at the point where the longer the game is at 0-0 the more I expect us to score. There's an inevitability about it. Let's enjoy this without griping.
  5. Transfer Talk Topic

    Absolutely. Even if we'd offered £200m and they'd said "OK you can have him", Haaland and his 'team of advisors' would have said "no thanks" anyway. Nobody got "messed about" other than the supporters who believed the bullshit spouted by ITKs, the Twateratti and the click-bait reliant "news" sites.
  6. Non Chelsea: Champions League

    Sad to hear about this. He might have left a few years ago now, but I still think of him as 'one of ours'
  7. Non Chelsea: Premier League

    Most red card offences result in several team-mates of the 'fouled' player remonstrating with the ref, the 'culprit' and any of the 'culprit's' team-mates who come to his defence. Nobody reacted initially. None of the Liverpool players or coaching staff seemed to think anything untoward had happened. It was ONLY after the ref had noticed the player was still down and one of his team-mates was frantically calling on the physios that the game was stopped... and it was ONLY after seeing the injury sustained that a red card was given. None of the commentators at the time seemed to notice a foul until the game had been stopped, and even then there was discussion between whether it was even a foul or not... not was it a yellow or red. That's how much of a red card it was, until the ref - possibly swayed by the injury he saw - decided it was a red.
  8. A Driving Force

    Former son in law had a Yeti for a while (he worked for VW head office and got a different car every 4 months or so; sometimes a Polo or Golf, sometimes an A2 or A3, sometimes a small Skoda or SEAT) Great little car that's not so little on the inside. School friend had a Mk1 too. Like yours, it spent more time on ramps in his parent's driveway with him underneath it than with him behind the wheel on the road!
  9. A Driving Force

    I once had a Montego estate as a company car. Only beaten by a Triumph Acclaim (also a company car) as the worst car I've ever had. I thought about hybrids, but have decided to go full EV. Never had any points in over 40 years of driving 😉 Mind you, I was an ADI with BSM in Kingston for a while in the mid nineties to mid naughties
  10. A Driving Force

    First car as a 17 year old in 1976 was a 1973 VW Beetle 1303S (with the 1600cc engine, curved windscreen and round rear lights) Currently a BMW 630i Soon to be sold for an EV but not sure which one. I don't do long journeys any more (no more road trips between London, Paris & Milan these days, for example) so range isn't top of the list. Even nearly 8 years on, I still like the look of the i3 but will probably go for something a bit bigger. Very much tempted by the Kia EV6 or Hyundai Ioniq 5

    Don't worry; nobody with a pulse buys a Vauxhall Meriva!
  12. Chelsea 1 Zenit St Petersburg 0

    Reminded me of the crosses Azpilicuetta used to supply Morata. Talking of whom... won a penalty and scored another in Juve's 3-0 win against Malmo. Guess who we play next? Lukaku versus Chiellini and Bonucci should be tasty!

    With 5 subs allowed, I suspect he'll get minutes tonight and a possible start v Spurs?
