  1. The European Leagues & Competitions Thread V2

    Had they made the top four, I'd have been fully behind a United win tonight. As they did not however, Chelsea had something to loose from a United victory so I was backing Ajax. Ho hum, we don't always get what we want. Only upside for me is that Jose has won another trophy. Pleased for The Special One.

    Been there, done that. Mind you, I think they've already won it too.
  3. First of all, congratulations to Ronaldo. Those are remarkable numbers. It's a shame for Jimmy that he ruined himself with alcohol. As early as 1961 he was hitting the bottle to a degree which damaged his fitness. There's a story told of his time at Spurs when a teammate complained to Bill Nicholson that Greaves was, "Standing around on the half way line doing nothing again." The Spurs manager replied, "Yes, and when you score 40 goals a season you can go and stand there with him!" The truth hidden by that anecdote, is that Jimmy couldn't have worked harder even if it was his inclination. The booze sapped away his fitness and his record, as amazing as it is, does not do justice to his talent.

    Ah, yes I had somehow managed to forget that.

    We lost that didn't we?

    Interesting ideas and a good read. Thank you.
  8. Chelsea 4-3 Watford

    I was a bit fragile myself today. So fragile that The Bridge has given me a headache. My daughter says I have to learn to sing not shout. Whatever that means. And by the way, East Stand shame on you for breaking the chain.
  9. Chelsea 4-3 Watford

    Although there are exceptions, generally speaking I tend not to defer to the views of ex-professionals. I've heard too many of them, talking too much nonsense, for too long, to see their opinions as automatically more credible than yours or mine. Whether to rest players ahead of the final, and, if so, who to rest and in which game or games to rest them, are questions where I would give weight to their opinions however. Their experience must give them a valid insight into the right way to approach this. Has anyone heard any ex-Chelsea players talking about this?
  10. Chelsea 4-3 Watford

    I hope the 1st XI wins what ever training game is arranged for the 24th, but I'm sure the game on the 27th will be of more importance to Antonio and the lads.
  11. The BBC Sport website is running a combined Chelsea team from 2004/05 & 2016/17 selector. It would be interesting to see people's ideas. My selection is below. I've chosen a 3-4-3 line up because I just can't leave any of Billy Gallas, Riccy or JT 04/05 out of the team. Those three occupying the centre back positions is a fantasy to end all footballing fantasies. When it comes down to it I just think Thibaut is a better, more athletic keeper than Petr. The best Chelsea performance I ever saw from Duffer was as a wing back. He won't make the side as a wide attacker but would fit Antonio's system well I think. Gerimi was born to be a wing back I think. I believe Ngolo is a better player than Maka. Obviously he is better in possession but I think he is also better out of it. Arjen & Eden in tandem would be a nightmere for any opponents. Diego has been poor for half a season, but The Drog was poor for nearly all of 04/05. I was very tempted to go for Eidur. He might well have linked better with Arjen & Eden.
  12. The Conte Thread

    He also said the biggest regret of his career was that he never won The FA Cup.
  13. Chelsea 4-3 Watford

    Palace can make things easier for us if they avoid defeat against Hull on Sunday. That way there will be no relegation issues at steak in either of our games. If Hull should win however, they would maintain hopes of catching Watford, and avoiding the drop. In that case, we would have a responsibility to put out a competitive team against The Hornets. I know many people take the view that it is not our problem but I'm on the side of those who say we have to respect the competition. How, for example, would we have felt if West Ham had played their 2's against Spurs last week? It will spoil the party a bit if Antonio's options are restricted by the need to do Hull a favour but it has to be business before pleasure as always.
