  3. 11 point gap at the 70th minute mark 1-1, bet Mourinho would have been happy with a point away from home and we'd have played a dull game until the end. Conte took a defender off, changed tactics, kept pushing at all costs and it payed off. Such a change in mentality, totally transforming the club from top to bottom and we're not even the finished article yet. No more drama, controversy, silly mind games, negative tactics, no more bad press. He's given this club a new identity and although Chelsea is hated from right to left, I bet there's a lot of neutrals saying "wow they really ditched negative tactics, they really are a fun team to watch." Give the man a new contract and let him decide on transfers. Club's going into the right direction. Amazing time to be a Chelsea fan.

  4. When he got sacked first time round us fans shouted outrage and his name was chanted for several games after. When he came back with Inter Milan he got a rapturous ovation even after his team knocked us out. When Benitez was manager his name was chanted at every game we wanted him back he was one of us (?). He leaves us just above the relegation zone yet the fans are still onside it was down to the players. We have shown admirable support for him does he give us respect back ? he does like fuck. All we get are digs at the fans the club in general and most uncalled for at Conte. His behaviour at the 4-0 was just petulant and childish. So he gets called Judas so what he deserves a lot worse good riddance to the special needs one and his horrible brand of football.

  5. Jose complaining about refereeing decisions when he sent a team out to kick the fuck out of our players, Hazard in particular. He seems to be forgetting the glut of offside goals earlier in the season, never mind the Southampton 'goal' in the League Cup Final. United were a disgrace tonight and, having grown up with the Best, Law and Charlton school of football they can forget about that now. Herrera is a niggly, spiteful cunt and like his team got what he deserved. Well done Antonio and the lads.

  7. Dear whiny fans, I sincerely advise you all to not support Chelsea, or an English side. What would really help your condition is some frequent wanking over a team like Barcelona. Thank you.

  8. IMO he is almost good to go as starter. I always thought we need a ball playing CM, but more I look the games, the more it seems we realy need a Matic improvement. Someone quicker, more agile and with better technique. While its true, Eden needs to get in middle to collect the ball a lot because Matic cant bring the ball further up, it makes sense to get someone who can dictate and spray the balls to our attackers. But at same time, Matic role as defender is crucial. It allows Kante to roam, it gives balance to our defense. A playmaker would ruin all that, so unless you know perfect Matic/Cesc combo player we can buy, then we simply cant afford to have playmaker in middle. Many say we dont realy need height and strenght, and while its true, small players can work, I saw enough of PL to know there is no way we would play two small guys in middle of pitch whole season. Even the likes of Dahoud, he aint small by no mean but seriously anyone believes he would fit next to Kante? Anyway, the solution as long we play with two men in middle is Matic improvement and Bakayoko is everything you need. Perhaps even stronger than Matic, certainly quicker, younger, more dynamic, at least as good defender and miles better dribbler. As long our middfield can get the ball forward (which Kante and Baka could), then we would be just fine if we have two brilliant wingers. People also forget that football is not fifa. In real life its not easy to change even the side you play nevermind whole formation. Bakayoko always plays on left side to Fabinho, in two man midfield with two wingers and two fullbacks. The exact same position Matic plays here. Fact that he would even have French partner in Kante is probably great too. Yeah he makes simple passes most of the time, he prefers to dribble past opponents and then pass, rather make risky pass forward. Very raw passer. Sure he can pull great pass here and there, but so can Matic. If you look for Kroos, you will be dissapointed. If you look for Yaya or Vieira, then Bakayoko is the closest thing in years. His passing gets him down sometimes, because he gets the ball and then instead of passing forward, he just makes simple pass to nearest player, but his dribbling and ball control makes him great at pushing the ball forward without killing the tempo. Its realy all about his role. If he gets free role to roam, his dribbling will be menance for any defense, if he gets the role like in city games when he has to stay deep, his passing will be the most basic. I would be very happy with him. We need his type AND playmaker anyway, so by getting Baka, we cant lose realy.

  12. I don't know if it's possible for me to disagree more. Azpi's passing this season has been superb; a lot of our build up play is generated through him. Azpi is limited as an attacking RB, but as a RCB his understand of the position and passing ability has been a revelation.

  21. Let's look at it from a perspective, based on recent reports: Conte wants to improve the squad. Mostly by buying Sanchez and a LWB. Other than that(and including that), lets access information and think about possibilities and targets: Christensen and/or Van Dijk - Christensen and his dad have both said he will be returning to Chelsea. A major talent, who I doubt anyone is stupid to let go, especially given his succesful loan. Just like Courtois, we will probably put big trust in him as he has proved that he can make the leap from youth to pro football. Although Azpi and Cahill have been great this season, I would still place faith in the young lad on one of the two postitions. To be quite fair, Christensen is even more ideal than Luiz in the central role the Brazillian occupies, because of his fantastic ball - playing ability and intelligence. Which, would see Luiz occupy Azpi's role, which he would also fit great, as he can press and has the pace to keep up and push forward, if need be. Which would result to - moving Azpi at LCB/ or keep Cahill there, or we sign Van Dijk. Which I don't want to happen, as we have Ake and Zouma, who could also do the job there, but if they do not want to stay, then it seems logical for it to happen. I doubt Cahill will be dumped immediately, so I hope the first "potential" trio, would be the solution. LWB(Alex Sandro, Ghoulam, Kolasinac, Mendy) - One of three positions we desperately need to improve. Any of the pointed out would do that. Alex Sandro being the best choice. Ofcourse, being the most expensive. Any potential outings of Costa(to China/Atleti) and/or Willian (China/United) would be for a vast amount of money, which, given Oscar money, CL, Nike deal and the wages we've freed up in recent years, can give us a boost in pursuing Alex Sandro and the big fee he'd demand. Reports in Italy say that Juventus would consider nothing short of 50 mil. euro. Which, is a no brainer, IF TRUE. Although, it has been said, he will probably sign a new deal. Add to that that Juve do NOT need to sell one of their best players and this transfer becomes extremely hard. However, If, Romano's report is right, which it is, we could at least give it a proper try. If we are to fail, then Ghoulam/Mendy would be the better choices. A bit of work is needed in the defensive aspect, but they are still fantastic players and would definitely improve that left-hand side. Bakayoko - Decided not to include Radja, as I doubt he'd leave. Plus, with the reports, we've agreed a deal for the young frenchman, I guess he's our priority. The Second of the three areas we need to improve. Bakayoko is a fantastic signing. Massive player. People undermine him a lot, because he is still young and has problems with his consistency. He's had a fantastic season and is exactly what we want from Matic. Our system is based on the front three and the wing-backs being effective. The center midfielders have to carry the ball forward fast or be able to interchange quick pass upfront. A part from long range passing and the fact he sometimes decides to dribble, instead of passing(because he doesn't believe he will make the pass) is the online problem I see in Bakayoko. Still, he is only 22 or 21, and will just improve. Why not under Conte? Because two bad 2nd halves vs City? Or because of the friendly vs Spain? Cool. Let's undermine the fact he bossed one of the best midfielders in England twice(Moussa Dembele) and the top 3 CM in the world (Marco Veratti). Sanchez/ B.Silva - Alexis. The dream. The final piece to the jigsaw of that front three and last position we need to improve. Pedro has had a massive season, but he's not ideal. Bad touches, decisions, passing, lack of ability to get past an opponent in most of the situations. 50 mil. demanded price for the 2nd best player in England and a player Conte loves to bits. Our supposed number 1 target. What more do we want? For him to be convinced by Conte to snub PSG and Juve. Ideal for Conte's idea of Hazard being the creative spark and Alexis being the "workhorse" forward, who does not stop running, scores and finds the space given by Hazard/Costa. Antonio resigned, because he didn't get him. Can we please make his dream finally come true. He loves his fucking chilleans. If, it does not materialize, hopefully, we manage to bag B. Silva, he is the other choice who would fit Hazard. Still, Romano has said we will go all out for Alexis and one can only dream. Lukaku and/or Morata - Costa is a goner. And as much as I like the bloke, he isn't my ideal choice for a forward. Honestly, I believe we can replace him. Football has evolved. It's more than just a striker being clinical, and even if it is still his main asset, it also requires him to have good link - up play, be able to put other players in good positions, when he is having a bad game. Or, if we are playing against Pullis's WBA, he'd come with his back to goal and lay it off, creating space in behind with quick passing. Just as an example. Lukaku has massively improved this aspect of his game. And he guarantees goals. I do NOT rate him as much, but he has definitely improved and I won't be a fool to deny that. Costa would never make the pass he made to Valencia against Hull. Never. And this is not me hating Costa. Morata - I must be the only one who actually rates him a lot. I watched his big season at Juve, then the next one he was injured, then he decided Real was a good choice for him, which, was a big mistake. Big moment player. Always pops up when needed, be it goal, asisst or something to contribute and lead to a goal. He was played at LM, injured, which is the reason he didn't have a great season and didn't make a dynamic duo with Dybala. Imo, he would fit us good, people are undermining him, because he has barely popped double-digit goals in his career. Still, just for a prime example, we signed Drogba with ONE season behind his back. Morata is still relatively young and has had ONE season, where he was fully trusted and a key figure. In that same season, he got Juve to the CL final(in which he scored), scoring in nearly every game leading up to it. Also, popped goals vs Milan, Napoli and Inter, if I am not mistaken. He can be successful for us, as long as, he keeps himself injury free and is trusted. Depending on the outings of certain players, our wage bill and transfer budget can grow. I believe we can manage to cash in on Costa & Willian and/or Matic. Which would be massive. We could still end up with a relatively good net worth balance, if that be the case. We have to invest this summer, and we have the potential to do so, if do about our business on the low and correctly. Hopefully, we do.

  22. He'd rightly be considered the king of English football if he played for Utd, wore the #7 jersey and won the trophies he's won with Chelsea. What an addition he turned out to be. Sure, he was a huge talent when he arrived, but only a select few fulfill their promise. Absolutely in love with him and will probably end up as my absolute favourite Chelsea player. The uncanny awareness, the gentle touches, the dazzling turns, the incredible balance and body control, the superbly timed bursts, the elegant way in which he glides past players, the surprising way in which he rides challenges, the hilarious way in which he embarrasses anyone who tries to stop him and his innate knack for the spectacular in terms of tricks, flicks, feints, attempts, goals and assists. And when you kick or target him, he simply gets back up and continues to play his game. Off the pitch, he strikes me as my kind of guy as well. Positive, chill, enjoys a joke and a laugh and loves his people. Might buy his shirt next season (never buy shirts). Nice sentimental momento.

  23. Never mind the quality, feel the width eh? There are assists, and then there are assists. They are certainly not created equal. When judging the contribution of any player, it's not a simple matter of measuring his output. Questions have to be asked, and answered. How often does the player do as well as he can have done in a given situation? Can we reasonably expect our starter in that position to do better? Your answers to those questions in Nemanja's case may find in his favour, mine find decisively against him. As for the assists; I've frequently posted the opinion that, when things are in his favour, Nemanja can pick a pass as well as the next professional. It it when things are not in his favour that he frustrates me. When we need someone with the surety of touch, quickness of feet and quality body control to turn a less than perfect situation into an attacking opportunity for our team, Nemanja is not our man. On the majority of occasions that Nemanja comes into possession, a standard, simple, action is exactly what is required and he serves us well in those situations. There are numerous times in each game however where we would benefit from a player with superior attributes and it is those times which make the difference. We hope to qualify for, and be competitive in, the Champions League next season. We will find it harder to succeed in that ambition if we are not able to select a player to partner Ngolo who is able to help us make the most of those difference making opportunities. Last, but not least, Nemanja is utterly unable to do anything the least bit challenging with his right leg. He avoids that limb in the same way novice tennis players avoid their backhand. For me, an upgrade in his position remains priority number one this summer.

  24. Great result at a very tough place and good to see Garry making amends for that pen, but the MOTM by far was David Luiz, for me. He absolutely dominated in defense and even his forward play was exceptional. But on a side note, I know Conte does not like to talk about referees after the match, but someone really needs to because we need more protection from refs. For the second game in a row the opposition are only interested in stopping us from playing by kicking the shit out of our players. I know that refs are encouraged to try to handle the game in a way to keep 11vs11 but when the fouling is so one sided and clearly intentional as it has been, trying to keep 11vs11 becomes actually biased against the team receiving all the physical abuse.

  25. Stale tactics are now continuing at United, he is still taking swipes at people because of his own short comings and the jealousy are there for all to see. I'm glad we got rid of him, he is everything you do not need at a club, he's someone else problem now and we are so much better for it. Conte is a gentleman, a true professional and a man who appreciates people. I'm laughing because I can feel his anger towards us and his jealousy of our position, he thought he was taking that team immediately to the top and he's fell well short, pathetically short in fact. We have now beaten them with ease in both games this season, I couldn't be happier. You stuck up 3 fingers I am sticking up 2......fuck off and take Pogba with you.

  29. To follow up on what Spike said. Hazard has been fouled 75 times this season, Mane 47 times. Hazard created 54 chances, Mane 41. Hazard has 120 successful take on's out of 153 attempts ( 78% succes rate). Mane has 61 successful out of 106 attempts ( 58% succes rate). and yes Hazard played a whopping 2 games more then Mane.

  30. If we sign him and keep Hazard then brilliant, Hazard out and Sanchez in would be underwhelming and a step down in my opinion. Alexis is a very good player but i honestly believe just how good he is is being overplayed due to being the ray of hope in a team all over the shop, a bit like Mata under AVB.

  31. The reason we struggled against Spurs was because of their intense pressing. We couldn't handle it. And when we press Spurs back, they have dembele, wayanma, rose who are strong on the ball and could dribble out of pressure. While we have only Hazard who can win fouls. If we get Bakayoko, it could help but our wingbacks still need to be able to compete with the pace, power and ability to hold the ball under pressure of the Spurs own wingbacks. If we had a striker that is good in the air, we could easily hit a long ball straight to him, but we don't have this either. This bad combination throughout our team has made pressing from big teams our biggest weakness. That's why it's so easy to pin us back for very long periods in our half, when all it takes is to chase Cahill, Alonso, Matic, kante, costa, Pedro, and they all kick the ball in the air or lose possession easily.

  32. He's not going anywhere. We don't want to sell and don't need to sell. He's also not the type who would force a move or throw a tantrum. Also good news, Hazard visited his first club in Braine le Comte and gave a short interview. He said that he thinks he'll be ready for the next Chelsea game.

  33. WOW, AS and MARCA claiming positive talks with Hazard, what a surprise!!!!! you guys wanna know in who to trust? Matt Law is the gold standard for Chelsea things these days, both he, and Simon Johnson, who is fairly realiable claimed that Chelsea will not sell Hazard under ANY circunstance, not only them, but HLN, who are pretty much the most realiable paper from a sporting point of view from Belgium, claimed that, while Real are indeed interested in Hazard and Courtois, Chelsea has named Hazard as "Non transferable" and that Hazard himself is not interested on the move, as his family are settled in London

  34. Interesting. I don't think it's the actual pass which is the most important component of being a good passer. Most people, you & me included I think, could complete a very high percentage of the passes available to us if we were first set up with the right angle, on our chosen foot, with the time and space required, and with the runner in position. Even if you and I couldn't, most professionals could. Nemanja, for example, certainly can. Yes, there are differences between different professionals but, given the perfect set up I've described, the better passer isn't going to complete a significantly higher percentage of the passes than the less good distributor. There is something which makes a much bigger impact on the outcome of any given possession than mere precision of delivery. That thing is the special player's ability to do the things which create the good conditions for a pass in the first place. These include; the collect and turn which leaves the immediate marker in his wake and opens up the pitch in front of him, the precise touch which puts the ball right were it needs to be so he has that split second to get his pass away, the poise and body control to retain possession long enough for the target of his pass to make a run. I won't go on with the list; we all know the sort of things which are on it. I think Bakayoko has many of the attributes required to generate good passing opportunities for himself. Threading the intricate pass around the edge of the opponents' box is a part of the function of a player in Bakayoko's role, but effectively turning defence into attack is a more important part. Bakayoko may not score lots of goals or register many assists, but his team does and he is a big part of the reason for that.

  35. I watch a lot of Monaco's games. Both are excellent but different. Fabinho is also good defensively (he's a converted right back and he was solid in that position). He is a better passer than Bakayoko but not so much of a dribbler. I honestly think that either would be good enough to fit into our team and seriously improve it. In my opinion the main reason we are going for Bakayoko is that his contract is running out, so he's more attainable and it makes more financial sense. I would be really happy with either, with a slight preference for Bakayoko in terms of the role he will play in breaking up play and carrying the ball out for quick counters etc.

He has made several comments about Chelsea (many times in press conferences that having nothing to do with Chelsea). Didn't he call Wenger a voyeur for doing the same one upon a time?

  42. José has already given his 3 reasons why we'll win the title: 1) We're set up as a defensive team 2) We play counter attacking football 3) We have no European football He gives absolutely zero credit to Conte or the players simply being great. He's been sniping at us all season long and tried to basically create this narrative that our potential title will be illegitimate. He confirmed as much the other day when he compared us to Brendan Rodgers' Liverpool that almost won the league with Suarez. I was his biggest fan but he has totally destroyed any good will he had with me. I'll be cheering against him in every remaining match in hopes that he misses out on CL football again and will have another season in the Europa League so he can be the cranky old man he has been this season.

  44. Superb performance and especially Hazard and Kante. Barring that one brainfart moment from Luiz, we controlled the game from start to finish and didn't give anything away. If there's one criticism is that our finishing was poor again. Really need to start putting away those chances in games. As for United, well, I know they have players out and have a hectic schedule but my word, they played like a typical Mourinho team away from home against one of the big teams. All they did was trying to kick us and contain our threat. Didn't even see any hint of Mourinho trying to hurt us by going forward. Same crap we've seen over the years. He's managing a big team in Man United but setting them up like a Tony Pulis side.

  45. We have an amazing opportunity to grow into a true European elite for the next 5 years if we get our signings right this summer. Conte has been a magnificent appointment, and I genuinely can't wait to see what he can do when he has better players in the side. It's truly incredible how he's managed to guide the team 10 points clear. Absolute winner. He's managed to do so whilst sort of integrating some of the academy guys as squad players as well. At managerial level we're truly set with one of the best. Now it's time to give him the right players. In my opinion, we need to upgrade on 4 positions next summer. CM, LWB, RWB, RF. So essentially an upgrade on Matic/Fabregas, Alonso, Moses and Pedro. We do this successfully and we're set. Realistically, there are a few options for us this summer. There seems to be a mix of top players and up and coming superstars available next summer from particular leagues and teams that I feel we should raid. Specifically the French league which is bursting full of talent right now. At CM, I would look into getting Kante a partner that is a lot more complete defensively and offensively. I would rather them be more inclined towards the latter though due to Kante's defensive ability in midfield. The players I have in mind that are possibly attainable are Tolisso, Naby Keita and maybe Bakayoko. Maybe a cheeky bid for Renato Sanches who hasn't settled at Bayern at all? The pipe dream would be Verratti though. At WB, Alonso and Moses have done very well this season as a couple but they aren't good enough if we want to be a top European side. Of course, they stay and provide crucial squad depth (which we severely lack in the position). I would look at getting in Semedo from Benfica the most, he is a top top full back. Maybe look at other options like Aurier? Cancelo? On the left, again there aren't that many exciting players available but I heard we're interested in Lemar, who plays LM at Monaco. Maybe could be converted into a LWB, would be a very interesting option. We can also possibly take a plunge on one of the best young English talents to come through recently, Ryan Sessegnon, who at 16 would need a few years to bed in but he is doing very well at Fulham at the moment and starts regularly now. Maybe Grimaldo from Benfica is an option too. RF is where it gets fun. We have loads of options here, there are many young talents or even superstars available that we could get. Pedro is doing a magnificent job this season, close to being CPOTY for me. However, he is 31 later this year and we need to invest into that position for the future. If we could manage to steal Alexis, that would be fantastic. Bernardo Silva would be excellent too. Then you have someone like Mbappe which would be a ridiculous statement. Maybe make a huge offer for Ousmane Dembele. The sort of player we need to have there needs to have the 'Pedro profile' if anything in my opinion. You can even look at possibly getting in strikers like Lacazette or Aubameyang who could perform really well in that Pedro role, Anelka style. So someone with a goal scorers mentality when in the box and good off the ball movement. That potentially gives us a team of: Courtois Azpi Luiz Christensen Semedo Kante Tolisso Grimaldo Mbappe Costa Hazard That above is a truly exciting side, and should be pretty achievable next season in my opinion. Hopefully we can make even bigger signings though, you never know. The squad depth would be ridiculous as well with guys like Fabregas, Pedro, Willian, Moses, Ake etc. to call on. Good times ahead hopefully, as long as the board and Conte don't mess up the summer transfer window. We need to spend big, because our competitors will. City and United, and Arsenal and Liverpool potentially too. The PL is going to be exciting next season. This is highly optimistic and idealistic but don't see why we can't be. We'll be champions with a lot of cash to spend.

  48. Not one to tell people how they should view football but we're at the point of the season where the results, not the performances, matter most. If we can play great football all the way, then good. If not, then it's fine and that's not to say we've been playing badly or boring stuff - far from it. It may not be overly exciting but I find beauty and/or excitement on how we've been going about things - we're doing the basics stuff well. When we can attack, we attack. When we have to defend, we defend. We're doing that as a unit, not just 3-4 players doing it and the rest can't be arsed, and that's pretty impressive as well as speaks volume of the Conte has done with this team in less than one season. Simple but efficient and ruthless.

  49. Nothing positive, shit performance, players under performing and lucky to be top... Appreciate what you are seeing, this team is delivering massive amounts with a super coach and lots of positives.

  50. According to media, Conte was sacked before Leicester game in October, Costa left in January and Man Utd or Man City are the ones who fighting for the title. So I am not surprised that Conte is leaving.....
