  1. Huddersfield - Chelsea

    Honestly I don't understand some of these line-ups nowadays
  2. Champions League thread

    I just noticed this but isn't it strange how after virtually all our CL fixtures we get another title contender immediately after? Qarabag - Arsenal Atletico Madrid - Man City Roma - Chelsea Qarabag - Liverpool Now Barcelona - Man United and Man City This is an incredible "coincidence" and obviously a big disadvantage. They seriously wanted to give us as little a chance as possible of retaining that title. 2 in 3 years is enough.
  3. Champions League thread

    Realistically speaking I give us like a 30% chance of winning the tie max. I'm expecting a lot of blind optimism posts akin to what I saw about our transfer window last summer. Unfortunately such posts have little to do with reality.
  4. Champions League thread

    Not to be negative or anything but there's no way that's going to happen. Barcelona and Altetico are nothing alike. As I'm sure you know, Barcelona are great at dominating the ball.
  5. The English Football Thread

    Pep always does this strange things. Aguero should be on the pitch now to end the game
  6. The English Football Thread

    Watching Lukaku right now makes the criticism (albeit mild) of Morata look silly.
  7. The Conte Thread

    The good thing for Conte I guess is the priority is top 4 these days. Anything else is a bonus. The board can have no complaints whatsoever with a top 4 finish. We have no business fighting for the title this season. So what the board set forth was top 4 according to our netspend in the market. Our ambition these days is Arsenal-esque. Top 4 and try for a domestic cup. I'm already well prepared for that reality.
  8. 10. Eden Hazard

    I just wish you express some consistency and come here when he plays well in games. That way we won't have to read your long-winded tripe since Eden brings it almost every game. We won't see you of course. As for me being an "asswipe" well you seem to be suffering an implosion there mate. I hope everything is well with you kiddo. But enough of this. I'm not going to give you anymore of that attention you ordered.
  9. West Ham 1-0 Chelsea

    Pretty much
  10. West Ham 1-0 Chelsea

    In hindsight starting a strong XI versus Atletico Madrid now looks like a terrible decision considering our inability to convert the amazing chances we had. Some players needed the rest.This season is fast crumbling before our eyes
  11. The Conte Thread

    Very interesting comments from Conte. He's so far lost to Burnley, Palace (the worst team in the league at that point) and West Ham. He really has no excuse and I know he likes making excuses
  12. 10. Eden Hazard

    So he has one questionable game since return from an ankle break (Crystal Palace aside) and you come here trolling. As for the balon d'or you can shove it up your a*** for giving any credence to that laughable shitshow. You should be ashamed for posting that
  13. West Ham 1-0 Chelsea

    There's something called setting the tone for the game. We wasted an entire 45 mins. We're just not good enough to make drastic adjustments in game when the coach doesn't get it right initially. That was partually true last season as well.
  14. West Ham 1-0 Chelsea

    Conte should have gone 3-4-3 and started Pedro if Drinkwater was not available for selection considering Bakayoko being shot of confidence. Morata and Hazard needed more support up front as they got zero from the wingbacks and Fabregas. Pedro has been underutilized this season. I'll like to see 3-4-3 in the next game with a midfield pivot of Drinkwater and Kante, Moses back in the team and Pedro in a forward 3. West Ham were always going to play a certain way against us. Conte has to be smarter than this.
  15. Sergej Milinkovic-Savic

    @The Skipper This kid to be an understudy to Cesc and eventually replace him. He's amazing. So complete. His 2015/16 season made me a believer. Maybe we can put in a cheeky bid to Dortmund?
  16. 9. Álvaro Morata

    Honest question. What do you expect his conversation rate to realistically look like? Stikers miss and convert chances all the time. Maybe I might change my opinion later in the season but I'm yet to see a pattern.
  17. 9. Álvaro Morata

    10 goals this season and superb all round play. He's allowed to miss from time to time. He's not a cyborg. More importantly he's clearly better than Lukaku and Costa. His all round play is so much better and pleasing to the eye and he's just the most talented of those three. In this game he created a shot from himself from literally nothing that almost went in. Our best players are allowed leeway from time to time.
  18. Chelsea 1-1 Atletico Madrid

    For anyone who missed the game
  19. West Ham 1-0 Chelsea

    With the way some of our top players are playing at the moment , anything other than a comfortable win will be a letdown.
  20. 22. Willian

    This. Hazard has been a better player than Neymar since the Brazilian came to Europe. I've seen Hazard play at a certain level in games that not even a great player like Neymar can reach. Hazard was clearly better in 2013/14, arguably in 2014/15. Was better in 2016/17 and this season as well. Also more consistent than Neymar. I go into games expecting Hazard to play at a high level in 90% of them. With Neymar it's more like 70-75%. It's just ridiculous how Neymar gets more praise with all the marketing, branding and entourage behind him. Eden on the other hand is a simple man off the pitch.
  21. 14. Tiemoue Bakayoko

    He's always had a poor motor. That's one huge red-flag I saw in his Monaco days. He's like the anti-Kante in that regard. When Fabregas is putting in more of a shift in midfield than you then you know there's a problem there.
  22. 22. Willian

    He's now become a caricature of himself. Comical to watch him play football at this point.
  23. Chelsea 1-1 Atletico Madrid

    Cold / hot balls in full effect.
  24. Chelsea 1-1 Atletico Madrid

    We're not going to see a lot of the ball against Barcelona though. They could easily do to us what Man city did at Stamford Bridge. We're poor against high level possession based teams and Barcelona are epitomize that more than any other
  25. Chelsea 1-1 Atletico Madrid

    We are the only English team to not finish at the top of our group. If Willian wasn't a terrible footballer and we finished 1st we could have had a much wider array of opponents for the Round of 16. Now it looks like its either PSG or Barcelona or Besiktas.
