  1. Premier League Run In - 2020/21

    Absolutely hate the game the way it is and have done for a number of years, VAR has just compounded it. The style of modern football is just boring. But I will never stop loving being there, that part of it has never changed and never will.
  2. Chelsea vs Leicester City

    I'm lucky, in the middle of the middle of the MHL, the majority of us sign all game, or at least try. Its rubbish compared to what it was but at least I'm in the best bit, which unfortunately shrinks year on year, was a time when the whole of the MHL was consistently rocking but if your not in the middle section its pretty ****.

    Personally I am still very positive, not one of us would have dreamt of being in this position when Tuchel took over and we have shown time and again under him when it really matters we are a different animal. Yes we should have beaten Arsenal but that will not be the reason we miss out on the top 4, if that ends up being the case. I know some would rather we had gone all out to qualify for next years competition but after beating Athletico and the draw we got that became the absolute priority and if we fall short so be it, it's been an amazing second half of the season and we go again next year with a squad that will have gained so much from this years experience, good and bad. Personally, and it may just be me I have enjoyed us under Tuchel more than any other time for a very long time, the ups have been right up there, the lows now too bad but potentially as low as Moscow, it's what I live for as a football fan and whatever happens it's been brilliant and I am thoroughly looking forward to seeing where we go in the next few seasons. On a side note, I remember talking to my boys who are 11 and 12 over the last 3 or 4 seasons, telling them that we were miles away from competing with the best in England and in Europe, that they may not experience the great European nights that we have all been so lucky to be a part of any time soon, if at all. From Athletico all the way to the two games against Madrid it has been phenomenal and the best part of it, for me, was being able to experience it with them, albeit in strange circumstances.

    I like it, apart from the fact that it looks like they ran out of material and stitched two completely different patterns together.

    Well, it may have been a 90 point squad, in some peoples eyes, but that was soon turned into a 58 point squad so the improvement is quite remarkable in such a short space of time.
  8. Chelsea 0 Arsenal 1

    Well I wont, I would take getting to the final, lose and finish 5th rather than finishing 4th.

    To be fair I do not think anyone said Conte was not an excellent coach, even me, just a complete bell end. I also do not see any resemblance in the way this team and his play football but maybe that's just me.

    You obviously do as you bought it up. Nope, hoping we win the champions league and FA cup, dont mind scraping the barrel if that's what we are doing. Clearly you and I differ on this though, it was all about finishing top 4 for you where as I wanted to win the competition you were willing to throw away to make sure we qualified for it next year.
  11. Chelsea 0 Arsenal 1

    Ah, not what I said at all. I have not made any points predictions for next season.
  12. Chelsea 0 Arsenal 1

    Who said they should be getting 90 this year? Right, Tuchel took over a team that was 9th and on course for a 58 point season, we were shambolic. With no pre season, no player acquisitions, he turned them into a team that would have finished 2nd this year, literally overnight as he was here for 24 hours before his first game. Before he came the best team we had beaten was Weat Ham Since his arrival we have beat Tottenham, Everton, and West Ham, not anything to shout about in isolation but all were above us when he took over. He has also beat Liverpool, City twice, Athletico twice, Porto and Madrid. In every game we were by far the better side, apart from the second game against Porto when it was all about getting through. He has taken us to the FA cup final and the Champions league final and put us in a very strong position to finish 4th. Personally I think it is pretty incredible that a manager can come in and take over a team that was 9th, and looking at the table right now would probably had finished 9th if we had carried on with a 58 point season and achieve what he has. Now if next year we finish on 78 points, unless by some miracle that is enough to win the league, he will be sacked and rightly so. Judging him by saying he should be averaging enough points to get 90 over a full season, because this is a squad that should get 90 points is absurd. The squad he took over was a 58 point squad.

    We went above them at the weekend. What is?
  14. Chelsea 0 Arsenal 1

    Well, absolutely no one said that. No, but what he has done in the short time he has been here is.
  15. Chelsea 0 Arsenal 1

    For once, I agree with you, definitely worth highlighting. Took over a team that was on course for a 58 point season and instantly turned them into a team performing at a rate of 78 points for a full season, whilst getting to the FA cup final and of course the final of the biggest competition in club football. Must also be worth highlighting that performing at a rate of 78 points for a full season would almost certainly get us second this year. Then when you then look at some of our results and performances, against some of the biggest sides around, it really is quite incredible.
