  1. Chelsea - Crystal Palace

    Why do you hate him? He only ever did his best for Chelsea. What more could he do? If he was not a sufficiently good player in your book that's hardly his fault. After all, Gaz didn't pick the team. I was on my feet saluting him yesterday and I'm delighted that this was pretty unanimous around the stadium.
  2. Chelsea's Transfer Targets

    Matt Miazga, so good they sold him twice!
  3. Chelsea's Transfer Targets

    I'm always persuaded by this type of observation. It speaks loudly.
  4. 7. N'Golo Kante

    I recommend my attitude to international breaks. I don't buy tickets to internationals, I don't watch them on TV, I don't follow them in any way. If everyone did that for a season, we'd be rid of these blasted breaks, instead of just going along with them the way fifa expect us to. Ditch the breaks, use the time saved to shorten the club season so it starts later, and finishes earlier. That makes room in the calendar for an international season. The weather's good, the fan parks open, the flags come out and we can all enjoy getting behind England, or our various national sides. That's the way to do it.
  5. 12. Ruben Loftus-Cheek

    Both still have plenty to prove I think.

  7. 24. Reece James

    Suggesting that he signed a four year extension in summer 2018. I'd be stunned if a new deal is not being worked on right now. One of those nice seven year jobs would be just the ticket.
  8. 5. Jorginho

    He put a bit more beef behind the second last night which is good to see. Not because I think there's anything wrong with his 'usual' style, but because extra variety keeps the keepers guessing.

    That's an option for sure and of course Frank has tried a three as well so that's a route SFL must be looking at. Ah, a back three. Fond memories of the days when we didn't have to hide behind the sofa every time the Blues concede a corner, or free kick near their box.

    I think Frank is more articulate and intuitive. He shares strength of character with JT but he is also more charming and seems to me to be more capable of influencing people around him. That includes Roman, the board, the press, everybody. I expect him, gradually, to be granted more influence at board level than any other manager in the Roman era. We'll see.

    Do you agree that Azpi's most consistent performances for Chelsea came when he played at CB, albeit in a three?
  12. 24. Reece James

    Sure the club is working on it but Reece did sign a new deal last summer.
  13. 24. Reece James

    He (Azpi) is a good option as a squad player. Experience, knowledge of, and commitment to, the club, plus the ability to cover three positions.
  14. 24. Reece James

    I believe in Frank. Over the years whenever people have talked of JT as a future Chelsea boss, I have said no, absolutely not for me. I have always said that I wanted, one day, to see Frank in the job however. I have absolute confidence that SFL will handle this in the right way. As for succession planning, Cesc Fabregas is the man I'd pencil in as Frank's successor if the need arises. I hope he'd have the sense to choose us over Arsenal if he had the choice.

    Where you been? We need your voice around here. Our numbers are small but, in my opinion, the general quality of posts on this forum is very high. If you are going to be regular again that seals the deal.
