  1. Chelsea - Liverpool

    Morata day.
  2. Chelsea 0-1 Valencia

    'pool won the cl with one worse than that.
  3. Chelsea 0-1 Valencia

    I 'm afraid the pen lost us one point and gave Valencia two points. By CL standards we 're not good enough -never mind PL standards. Leaky defense, could n't score a goal against a team that lost 5-2 to Barca, who are theoretically our adversaries in this competition.
  4. Chelsea 0-1 Valencia

    Clearly both missed so it was no good for their teams, but Messi's effort was better than Barkley's. I 've seen some pens taken high saved, especially when hit centrally ! In that case if the goalkeeper does n' buy it's an easy save. Barkley's shot was not central but it was a bad one. As we all know the world's best pen takers strike low and they also sense the keeper's movement and then all they have to do is a tap-in (Hazard-Didier).
  5. Chelsea 0-1 Valencia

    It's not the same thing. Barkely's shot is one and a half ball diameters above Messi's. You can say Messi was unlucky not to have scored but Barkley would have been very lucky to score.
  6. Chelsea 0-1 Valencia

    Willian sensed the danger.
  7. Chelsea 0-1 Valencia

    I 'm sure you 've seen many such pens and also many of them went in. But it's a stupid method. Usually if there is no pen taker or the pen takers have been exhausted in a shootout do we see this type of effort.
  8. Chelsea 0-1 Valencia

    Ok then, suppose he modfies his style and makes a 10 out of 10 correct from now on. The way he took today's pen is still a historical sh*t.
  9. Chelsea 0-1 Valencia

    Fair enough, but Messi hit the underside of the bar at least - he did n't shoot wide.
  10. Chelsea 0-1 Valencia

    Hazard missed one rather badly, I think it was against a Bosnian side. But he normally knows what he's doing. He would never shoot the Barkley way. Also compare Didier's cl winner with Barkley's sh*t.
  11. Chelsea 0-1 Valencia

    Only an amateur shoots a pen like that.
  12. Chelsea 0-1 Valencia

    Name a good penalty taker past or present who goes for the roof of the net.
  13. Chelsea 0-1 Valencia

    Could be the pope's decision. He is no PK taker.
  14. Chelsea 0-1 Valencia

    Willian would have scored the pen 99.999% or Jorginho or Kepa.
  15. Chelsea 0-1 Valencia

    Bilbao are a German team ?
  16. Chelsea 0-1 Valencia

    0-0 against decent opposition in Germany.
  17. Chelsea 0-1 Valencia

    We are miles behind Barcelona who disposed of this team with the utmost of ease. Barcelona are playing space age football, despite their two sh*ters against Roma and Liverpool. I saw Barkley insisting to take the pen, he was saying to the others "me-me-me". He was looking confident but no serious penalty taker goes for the roof of the net like that. Name one. This team of ours apart of everything else is low on stamina. The chances created in the second half were very few compared to the first half. Only the free kick Willian won and then the keeper saved Alonso's shot was the product of a decent move and the penalty was from set piece.
  18. Chelsea 0-1 Valencia

    That was an idiot's penalty.
  19. Wolves 2-5 Chelsea

    Tammy is 12 to 1 with bet365 - probably more with other bookmakers. What do you think ?
  20. Wolves 2-5 Chelsea

    Some great attacking football and Abraham is well on its way to become top scorer of th PL (price ? can't find). We conceded two but in the last 30 minutes both teams had ran out of steam really (it was alread 4-0 though). Clearly Tomori's opening goal greatly influenced things. I just think we need more stamina against stronger opposition.

    A MOURINHO VIEW ON THE BREXIT SITUATION I 'm following the drama from the early days as you know. From the day Cameron announced the referendum. For me the biggest danger is that it will bring Europe and the UK back to the early thirties, the pre-Hitler days. I don't know who exactly the protagonists are going to be but it's taking us back to pre-Hitler days. There are the gloomy predictions about Britain's economic future after brexit. I d' like to know this: Exactly how bad is it going to be ? I suspect everyone likes to know. I have a benchmark. My benchmark is Greece's varouf-exit. You know why ? Because it was abandoned 6 hours after it started by the people who initiated it themselves ! So in this scale how does brexit fare you reckon ? 20% ? 40% ? 70% ? There is also the new Kostas Gavras film "Adults in the room" for those of you who want to have a laugh with the antics of the varouf-exiteers of Greece. But whatever the answer to this question may be, I feel it has n't gone down to the public. It's always like this: The government -some government- announces huge tax increases, the newspapers write about it with big letters every day (alas, huge tax increases) but most folks appreciate only when the envelope from the tax authority reaches them and only then. This is an observed and recorded fact - don't argue ! So we come to the present juncture and worry about the economic impact of Brexit later (if Brexit happens). To approximate the situation I look into the various sides in the argument, the various camps. There is the strong remain camp. Libs, SNP, Greens. They will support remain for obvious reasons, no matter what the prospects are (i.e. win or lose in a new referendum). Libs for instance have more than doubled their percentage so they are going to be Britain's pro-Europe party no matter what. So the existence of the strong remain camp won't tell us who is ahead now in the country, the remainers or the brexiteers ? There is then the weak remain camp (Labour). Corbyn used to think that brexit will be forgotten and he can carry on with labkipers and remainers under the same roof. It backfired, he is sustaining huge losses to the Libs so he is on the road to become a weak remainer. Again due to this peculiar situation, Labour's stance is not a tell-tale clue. On ther other side there are the brexiteers of course, Boris, Farage and the labkipers. One thing that speaks in favour of remain's prospects is the Tory rebellion though. Rory, now Nicholas Soames and others. If things were going well for brexit would n't all the Tories be tame like little lambs, obeying Theresa's calls, Boris's calls ? In my opinion it is a mystery at this stage. Also Boris would never call for elections on the 15th of October or Corbyn would never have refused, if a Boris defeat was the plainly obvious outcome. What is your response to those concerns of mine ?

    Brexit was shot in the knee in parliament. What will happen next ?
  23. Chelsea 2-2 Sheffield United

    i think we got ourselves a centre forward. But the defense is tottering in the seams. It was a mistake to let Luiz go.
  24. European Competition thread

    Valencia is the weakest opponent. Ajax struggled against PAOK (out of Euroepa to Slovan Bratislave tonight) and also APOEL. Lille are doing well in France and are feared most.
  25. Norwich 2-3 Chelsea

    Willian played for four minutes - Alonso for one.
