  1. Chelsea - Arsenal

    Better yes and that is true of fans of all clubs.
  2. Chelsea - Arsenal

    Well yes and no. On one hand it was bad, but on the other, it always is so it was no worse than usual. After 50 years of watching this club play I think I'm entitled to an opinion on this; Chelsea fans don't know how to support their football team.
  3. Chelsea - Arsenal

  4. Chelsea - Arsenal

    You think more of Emerson than I do but surely, as soon as there is an opportunity, we'll upgrade at left back.
  5. Chelsea - Arsenal

    Well if we're 9th on the rich list we are 9th. That list reflects turnover however, and turnover is not wealth. In any case, cash is not the only currency. Juve are a more storied club than we are. Much more. All things being equal, players would rather play for them than for Chelsea. Even if people think I'm wrong in this specific case, that players do not find Juve a more desirable destination than Chelsea, there definitely are some clubs higher up the food chain than we are. If we're to tempt players away from such clubs, the reality is we have to pay them more. This means having extra cash helps little because we have to spend more to attract the same level of talent. The club is in Roman's hands. He cannot escape the responsibility and I don't believe he would want to.
  6. Chelsea's Transfer Targets

    PSG will till the end of the season so the arithmetic he has to do is six months @ £360pw + a new contract with some team somewhere from July, or eighteen months @ who knows how much with a new club now.
  7. Thibaut Courtois

    Sergio Ramos should sack whoever it was that translated that comment into English for him. If he did it himself, he should hire someone to handle translations for him. If it was google; no it can't heave been google. It isn't that bad.
  8. Chelsea Women Discussion Thread

    BBC highlights of yesterday's 4-1 demolition of Arsenal Women. (May be geo locked.) https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/51080655 Goal highlights from a YouTube channel. (Lower quality but should be viewable everywhere.)
  9. Newcastle 1-0 Chelsea

    Rofl was the reaction of at least one poster 18 months ago, when I said I'd rather save that money and use 19 year-old Marcin Bulka in goal.
  10. Newcastle 1-0 Chelsea

    My older daughter has some responsibilities at Border Force. If you find difficulties with your passport on your return, perhaps this post will cross your mind.
  11. Newcastle 1-0 Chelsea

    I don't disagree. My post wasn't intended to argue against anything you said here. If we can't find a player who is of the required standard, but not yet recognised as a target by clubs higher up the food chain than we are, then, as I said, we don't bother. No more wasting resources on solutions that are no solution at all.
  12. Newcastle 1-0 Chelsea

    Not by me he isn't. If we are looking to sign a striker to backup Tammy, and to push him, then we might as well not bother. We need a striker to replace Tammy.
  13. Ian Maatsen

    Well, Connor has proved nothing yet re his Chelsea prospects. Don't worry though, I won't forget to remind people that I was wrong when Connor makes it here. I'm not writing Ian off at all. I'm just rejecting the idea that he's on the same level as Reece, a player you will recall I was describing as our best youth prospect nearly two years ago.
  14. Ian Maatsen

    I agree re Ian, but I never like the he's regressed way of looking at a player. In my case I prefer to say something like, "I've had to reconsider my assessment."
  15. Ian Maatsen

    No he isn't. Less consistent. In my opinion of course. I did not see last night's game, was at Kingsmeadow watching CFCW reach the semi-final of their League Cup. That said, one performance could not negate the less consistent assessment.
