  1. Huddersfield - Chelsea

    Good beginning of the season.
  2. Thibaut Courtois

    What about Oblak ? The man just can't be beaten from the penalty spot. I think he is Courtois ++ and I also wonder why RM are not happy with Navas.
  3. Chelsea 0-0 Lyon

    Lyon was the class of Everton or Southampton. We therefore enjoyed possession and made some fast moves, the way Sarri wants, which looked pretty good. But there was no one up front to score a goal and the defense made some curious mistakes. We were going to score the winning goal in the second half but when Sarri changed nearly half the team the momentum was lost - even though two of the replacements were Eden and Giroud. The only positive is Sarri's attack system. He wants the players to be very fast in deciding what to do with the ball, faster than with Conte system or Mou system. Ideally this breaks defenses and creates goal scoring chances.
  4. Chelsea 0-2 Man City

    We will support the team in the second division too. But City is a team we used to beat home and away so what's the big deal about expecting to beat City ? About the prez it's not only this year with his viza problems but it has to be said we are under political persecution now, just like Latin America with the juntas.
  5. Chelsea 0-2 Man City

    Chelsea are a poor house, especially after Roman's political adventures. I wonder how Real are managing, given that Spain as a country is poorer than the UK. The only tough years for RM transfer wise were during the late sixties-early seventies from what I remember (yet they managed to squeeze a CL even then). For Barca there were some more difficult years, but now they are way ahead. PSG too are now rich. I recall a UEFA cup tie between AEK of Athens and PSG some twelve years ago. They managed to eliminate the weak Greek team, but they were bottom of the French league at the time and the Paris leg was interrupted for several minutes by protesting PSG supporters. At the same time Chelsea under Jose Mourinho were making big advances in Europe. I don't understand why we have become so poor. Is it T-shirts ? Then let's open shops with T-shirts in every town allover the world. They can only make profit ! It's inexcusable. I can understand some teams that reach a certain level and then give up because the budget requirements become too big and they give up because it's beyond them. The Greek Olympiakos Piraeus is the best example of a team that had to give up European dreams. They were progressing but at about the time they met with Chelsea in 2008 for the stage of 16 (3-0, 0-0 the results) it dawned to them that they could keep things going for them domestically but there was n't enough money for European dreams. So last year their best transfer was the aging Miralas from Everton (failed). The same kind of thing is true of some other teams. But not Chelsea !
  6. Chelsea 0-2 Man City

    I 'm afraid some of this "squad" are only good for the Swiss league, Young Boys, Aarau. Or for the Lichtenstein league.
  7. Chelsea 0-2 Man City

    It's not about Sarri. It's the squad that is made up of grannies. If you ask Albert Einstein to teach maths to a class of dumpkoffs what would you expect ?
  8. Chelsea 0-2 Man City

    Pedro was good for Barca, replaced by Suarez was n't he ? Now he is getting too old.
  9. Chelsea 0-2 Man City

    Some poor clubs make history but only for one season. Leicester City, in Greece Doxa Drama of old and Larissa. We need money.
  10. Chelsea 0-2 Man City

    How many times did you hear a wc commentator saying "Abra cannot miss this player" ? How many times did you hear "Eden Hazard is surely already packing for Madrid" ? We are an ex empire these days.
  11. Chelsea 0-2 Man City

    Stroll in the park for City. I expect relegation.
  12. Arsenal 1-1 Chelsea

    I don't care about pens but this is preposterous. If Czech left his posts we 'd be still waiting for Loftus Cheek's shot to reach the goalmouth.
  13. Arsenal 1-1 Chelsea

    Biggest w*nkery of the century, friendly or not. 60 minutes bombardment allowed, it just had to come.
  14. Inter Milan 1-1 Chelsea

    We won the penalty shootout ! Some good movements up front but we were vulnerable at the back, I think.
  15. FIFA'S sexy fan ban

    FIFA no longer allow tv cameras to focus on pretty girls in the terraces because it is ... sexist: https://www.thesun.co.uk/world-cup-2018/6767779/killjoy-fifa-wants-to-stop-tv-stations-picking-out-hot-women-in-the-crowd-at-games/ FIFA's intellectual forefather:
  16. FIFA'S sexy fan ban

    I 've been to Stockholm. I walked around a bit, the centrum, Sveavagen, Gamlastan. In the last day of our visit I was invited to a Swedish home and they offered us chicken with potatoes, a nice Swedish speciality very nice. Then the lady of the house said to me "surely you 've been to Djurgarten to pick some of the lovely ladies there". Djurgarten appears to be a complex of gardens on the north side of the river but I missed it and I said "no, where's that ?". She said "oh you clumsy one, you missed it and tomorrow you have to go ...".
  17. 10. Eden Hazard

    Don't knock it. That's how far down we were in the last days of Mou.
  18. 10. Eden Hazard

    Yes we have gone far enough. Now it's time to join the likes of Cardiff - Sunderland then !
  19. 10. Eden Hazard

    Atrocious idea. Flags are not for sale.
  20. 10. Eden Hazard

    No we are FA cup winners, champions the year before. Not yet.
  21. 10. Eden Hazard

    I hate to say this but all the teams who sell their superstars go down the drain.
  22. 10. Eden Hazard

    Some lame excuses. Maybe you too don't like the anticipated sell out, but you are trying to find alibis. I have spoken before about sell outs and I have spoken about the Greek legends of football. Whom do you know best from Greece ? Domazos maybe ? Well if he was a modern player people would say now "hey, I heard somewhere that Domazos may be from Greece" !
  23. 10. Eden Hazard

    A good replacement for Hazard ? A good replacement for the Acropolis ? A good replacement for st Peter's basilica ? How does one do these things ?
