  1. Chelsea v Barcelona

    Eulogise it for character or whatever, but truth is we were crap in 2012 and got extremely lucky. Our previous sides like the 08/09 one deserve that praise and recognition (restricted one of the best Barcelona sides in history to precisely ZERO shots on target before that Iniesta goal), but history only remembers the winners.
  2. Chelsea v Barcelona

    Defensive, but not cowardly. They're there to be got at.
  3. The European Leagues & Competitions Thread V2

    I don't think we'll get smashed at home. The return leg could get messy () though.
  4. The European Leagues & Competitions Thread V2

    And to think Allegri is probably the best of the names realistically touted to replace Conte next season...
  5. Chelsea 3-0 West Brom

    This team without Hazard...
  6. The Conte Thread

    Antonio Conte: "There is nobody better than me at improving players but I'm a disaster at getting clubs to spend" Conte and Mourinho love to do their talking off the pitch. Shame about what their teams are doing on it, eh.
  7. Michy Batshuayi

    Meh, as long as there's a buy-back clause
  8. The English Football Thread

    It's honestly pretty gut-wrenching every time I think about it.
  9. 9. Álvaro Morata

    Apart from Robben, Madrid have just (long) been a hypothetical threat/worry for us in keeping our best players, but it looks (Hazard/Courtois) like that will soon be changing unfortunately. Only a PSG-esque mentality can save us now.
  10. The Conte Thread

    The similarities were there last season, at least with our awesome Fergie-esque flat-track bullying. Too bad that's now gone down the drain too.
  11. The Conte Thread

    Enrique? Sigh. Despite our transfer failings, at least we tried for top/exciting managers. Now we're settling for mediocrity there too. Standards have dropped dramatically all-round, very sad to see.
  12. The Conte Thread

    Because according to the mainstream media, football is all about motivation and mentality.
  13. The Conte Thread

    Well since Roman doesn't seem to do "knee-jerk", sudden change-of-heart moves anymore, then I don't think Conte will be sacked soon. From Simon Stone (BBC): http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/live/football/42957143
  14. The Conte Thread

    I'll still be surprised if he's sacked tomorrow to be honest. We're still in the top 4, players don't seem to hate him. Mourinho had us in a much worse position and was given a very long stay of execution.
  15. The Conte Thread

    Talk is cheap. The players that aren't good enough are the ones he most likes to pick, and the "fear" we play with comes from his tactics.
