  1. Chelsea - Arsenal

    Hate to say this, but we really miss a Costa type to pressurise defenders. Morata played well enough, but he doesn't instill fear into defences like Costa did. Pedro very poor today, and I was impressed by Bakayoko when he came on. He gave away silly frees, but he will learn, and become a very good acquisition for us. I think we need to change our style of play this season as Morata will need help up front. He needs a player to play off, and hopefully thats Hazard.
  2. Leicester 1-2 Chelsea

    This will be a nice test for the squad, and it will be very interesting to see what team Conte picks. A couple of nice acquisitions in Drinkwater and Zappacosta to strengthen the squad. Lets hope for a decent performance, a win and a clean sheet with these guys coming on and proving they were money well spent. That's not asking too much is it ????
  3. General Transfer Talk

    I read a lot of people on here talking about Llorente, Barkley and the Ox rejecting us, and we only get Drinkwater and Zappacosta. Llorente will be 33 next year, hardly building for the future, and he would spend a lot of time on the bench, so he would not have been a clever buy for 12 million. Barkley, well a squad player at most,coming back from a serious injury and lacks ambition. At present he would be a long way from getting into our side as we have better options. We were the only side to make an inquiry about him so no loss there. The Ox ?, well he is a reluctant wing back and he would like to play in midfield. Not gonna happen at Chelsea as he's not commanding enough, and very inconsistent. A plus would have been he's English. Never going to get picked ahead of Kante, Bakayoko or Fabregas. So again no real loss. Zappacosta, a defender that Conte knows very well and can play right or left, so good cover for these positions until he gets used to the Premiership and challenge our wing backs. Drinkwater, a very astute buy. Is a worker, formed a very good partnership with Kante during Leicesters title winning season, is English, hungry for success,and wanted this move because he feels that Conte will improve him as a player, so I'm happy with who we bought. The three we didn't get? Well, two show a real lack of ambition,not prepared to put in the hard work Conte demands to win "real trophies" and LLorente would have been a panic buy at 32. We have better youngsters.
  4. Man United 2-0 Chelsea

    That was truly pathetic, Visions of last season coming back to haunt me. Not one shot on target, not even a near bloody miss, and we want to be champions!!!!!!!!! Costa never got a kick (again) Pedro,Hazard and Moses anonymous, and Matic gave the ball away way too often. Luiz too was poor, as was the team passing overall. We will need to win every game because the Yids have their tails up and also have a much easier run in. Expected us to show some fight today, but they rolled us over as if we were Sunderland!!!!
  5. Burnley 1-1 Chelsea

    Matic was utter rubbish today. Stupid free kick to give away. Some very wayward passing and just not up for it. Mistakes Are Totally In Character
  6. Burnley 1-1 Chelsea

    Com'n guys, have faith in our manager and team. A lot coming on here worrying about this game, but I'm sure it will be a win. Burnley are playing well at home but it's Chelsea they are playing today, not one of the inconsistent sides chasing us. Conte will send our lot out well drilled, confident, and with a game plan to blow Burnley away. And I think the incentive to be potentially 12 ahead of the chasing pack will be enough to get the win. 2-0 to the Mighty Blues

    Bet that was a first Your friends said you wouldn;t sweat in a microwave
  8. Chelsea 3-1 Arsenal

    Can you imagine Wenger doing that??? If he did, each one of those hands would be holding a dagger!!!!!!!

  10. Chelsea 3-1 Arsenal

    Ooooh what they'd do to have Hazard
  11. Chelsea 3-1 Arsenal

    Love this !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  12. Chelsea 3-1 Arsenal

    Arsenal have to stick with Wenger. He really is perfect for them. He will get them finishing fourth or fifth every season and spends money on "soft,not up for a fight" players.I love the way Ozil and Sanchez never turn up for the big games, Ihope they sign new contracts, and their defence is powder puff at best. Long may you reign Arsene, I love you mate. If we had not conceded in the final moments I would have just said "Perfect". But I'll change that to "Perfect...Almost t!!"
  13. Chelsea 3-1 Arsenal

    Fabregas has to start. His through balls to Costa will play havoc with the soft Arsenal back line.And I would really love to see Fabregas finish off his old teams fading title aspirations
  14. Liverpool 1-1 Chelsea

    I watched them play Southampton and was very impressed with the way the Saints dealt with them. Soaked up all the pressure, then broke wide on nearly every chance they got, and they eventually scored. Our defence is good and we have the wingers to hurt them, so let them comet us (as they will) but we will have to make the most of every break we get. Moses, Pedro, Alonso and Hazard!! We need you to be on your game tonight. I think these guys will either win or lose it for us
  15. Chelsea 4-0 Brentford

    Alonso and Cahill will be rested I'd say as they are carrying injuries.That could be Zouma and Ake brought in. Moses too may get a break.This frees a space for Aina. Terry to start with Dave as back up on the bench and cover for Aina Bats will play instead of Costa because we cant risk him getting injured. Willian in for Pedro and Fabregas in for Matic. Kante needed in the centre andHazard to start to assist Bats. Take him off for Loftus-Cheek if we get a commanding lead. Begovic in for Courtois. I think that team will do the business. Begovic Zouma Luiz Terry Aina Ake Fabregas Kante Willian Hazard Batshuayi
