  2. Christian Benteke

    And likely Champions League last sixteen qualifiers.
  3. Chelsea v Everton

    Jed won't be playing that's for sure. He was on the bench for Birmingham yesterday.
  4. Chelsea - Watford

    I don't know if heplayed for Flumanense thius season. I presume that he did but, if he didn't, I wouldn't be against a move for him in January.
  5. The Conte Thread

    According to Transfermarkt, our net spend is less than £3m. That result includes their guesstimation of loan fees, but the numbers are within a margin of error so the net figure could even be in surplus. In other words, we may have made a profit this summer. Those are the facts. What the reason might be is up for debate and speculation.
  6. The Conte Thread

    Can’t argue with you about much of this. We win trophies frequently but the mentality and spirit Jose brought to the club thirteen and a bit years ago always plays as big a part in those triumphs as does the outright talent of our players. Those attributes are now being shaped by Antonio’s own brand of brilliance, but Chelsea’s reliance on this, and on the failings of our competitors, cannot go on. We simply have to address our quality deficit, and must try to begin doing so in January. Stating this requirement is the easy part however. Making it happen is a different matter. The difficulties, including the fact that high calibre players are in no hurry to join us, are well known but solutions have to be found. On a brighter note, I’m on my way to watch the ladies play Bayern in the European Cup. Based on recent history their chances aren’t good but surely they’ll produce a less frustrating display than the men did on Saturday. Good luck girls.
  7. Petr Cech

    Wow. And don’t forget we averraged easily more than two games a year against them in that time. Indeed, didn’t we play them five or six times in just one of those seasons? That’s pretty much as often as Petr’s lined up against them for Arsenal, in total.

    Morning KF, Cant read it. Would you try again, or post a link please?
  9. Chelsea 0-1 Man City

    Well he couldn't have gone Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday (which would have been a proscribed recovery day) and, even if the act he wanted to see was still gigging, he obviously couldn't have gone on Friday or Saturday.. Thursday seems like his best, and probably only, shot.
  10. 3. Marcos Alonso

    No, it's definitely not just paper talk. Monaco's president told the press that Mendy had said that to him. It was reported in quotes so the president definitely said it and, if he was lying or misrepresenting Mendy, you'd expect the Man City man to have commented about it publicly. Mendy has not denied the claim however so I think we have to take this as fact.
  11. The Ancelotti Thread

    I think he should retire. If he continues, he runs the risk that even his remaining believers will come to see the truth.
  12. 9. Álvaro Morata

    He's a young, fit, multimillionaire with dark Latin looks. Given half a chance, I doubt your daughter would give you much say in the matter. 😊😊 Fortunately, or is that unfortunately, my daughters are spoken for. 😊
  13. 14. Tiemoue Bakayoko

    Didn't see Saturday's game so can't comment specifically on that performance but I think your analysis about Willian being best in the middle third is spot on.
  14. Stoke 0-4 Chelsea

    Can't see how it could be moot. If you don't care how the passes turn out then stick me out there. I'll get it forward for you. Clearly I'm not getting a game for Chelsea anytime soon, even with you in charge, but surely it's just as clear that the quality of the passes does matter.
  15. The Board

    For me it's an unarguable fact that Costa was useless in the second half of last season. The odd goal does not change that. If you are a professional footballer, playing as a striker for a league leading team, you will score goals. That is not what counts. What matters, what decides if you have contributed well or otherwise, is the difference you personally make. What happens because you were there that would not have happened if someone else was there instead. Costa's contribution post Christmas was way below standard. Way, way below.
