  1. Chelsea 0-2 Man Utd

    Willian had a scoring chance and it was outside the area. Unlikely to have dived.
  2. Chelsea 0-2 Man Utd

    There is no use hiding. The absence of Eden looms heavy. Bats should have scored twice in the first half but chances are there to be missed and it was n't like that with Eden around, even with the poor strikers after Diego.
  3. Chelsea 0-2 Man Utd

    Anyone else missing Morata ?
  4. Chelsea's Transfer Targets

    Ivica Surjak the great Croatian midfielder. Tipped by tabloids for AEK Athens in January 1983. Did n't happen. The tabloid's excuse was "drama at the border as Surjak forgets passport".
  5. Horse Racing

    We should have horse racing thread. We have all the others. Tomorrow Saturday it's Dubai world cup day. Clashes with football hours a little but the big race is after football, 18.05 UK time.
  6. Chelsea 2-2 Arsenal

    The first two goals were similar flukes - defensive mistakes. Effectively we managed only one -Azpi- and gave it back almost immediately. No creativity - chinese word. I don't trust Kepa anymore. He is below Courtois and certainly belw Begovitch.
  7. Newcastle 1-0 Chelsea

    What's happening ? Attack ideas zilch. Jorginho-Mount were lobbing the ball straight to the keeper. With 80% possession one or two half chances were inevitable but this was no Chelsea football !
  8. Chelsea 2-0 Nottingham Forest

    Yew Wilkins was n't. But during Mexico Ossie had a broken leg. Did n't he ?
  9. Chelsea 2-0 Nottingham Forest

    Ossie was great. He missed the 1970 world cup because of leg injury, then in 1974 Sir Alf was not counting on him. In the cup winners cup team the great stars were Ossie, Cooke, Hudson, Wilkins and Hollins. Could have swept everything at home / Europe but did n't do so because of great economic problems.
  10. Chelsea 2-0 Nottingham Forest

    I 'm sure it was 1-0 the replay to Arsenal.
  11. Chelsea 2-0 Nottingham Forest

    2-2 for the FA cup. I watched that one from Matthew Harding. Arsenal equalized with a fluke scored by Charlie George. In the replay I was shut out at Highbury - Queued for half an hour then shut out. We lost 1-0. Turned back to leave the ground then found myself in the middle of a mounted police charge - against touts !
  12. Chelsea 2-0 Nottingham Forest

    Lost 4-0 to Bulgaria, 4-0 to Argentina, 2-0 to Nigeria. There were some expectations because in the preliminaries we finished ahead of Russia. It was reported he returned weeks later, with a false beard. Died in 2012 but his name has become associated with dismal football performances. 2004 was different. Under the leadership of German Otto Rehhagel and with very good players. A measure of how good Greece was in 2004 is I think that two of the best ever Greek players, Nikolaidis and Tsiartas, who were instrumental in the preliminaries stopped playing just before Portugal - because they were getting old. They were fielded as reserves in Portugal. But the rest were up to the task. Unfortunately from August 2004 (!) and onwards it's decline again. Under Ranieri we lost to Hebrides-Orkneys what was that team ?
  13. Chelsea 2-0 Nottingham Forest

    1994 USA world cup, Greece's aggregate score 0-10.
  14. Chelsea 2-0 Nottingham Forest

    We are not doing great but I watched Arsenal v; United - panagouliasis is the Greek term for it. Also L'pool versus Sheff. United did n't impress me.
  15. Brighton 1-1 Chelsea

    Yes we have no bananas.
  16. Arsenal 1-2 Chelsea

    Nice win away. But we did n't play well today either. It was Arsenal who were not very brilliant. They conceded a lot of ground and it looked like a question of time before we scored goals. Luck played a role, as usual. A fluke 2-0 might have sealed it but it did n't happen. We lack in creativity and we need some strong additions
  17. Chelsea 0-2 Southampton

    Had a b***dy incident last week. 4 days in hospital and it was one of those without wifi connections. Fortunately there was a convict in the same ward and two cops watching him, so one cop used his iphone to inform me about the 2-0 against Spurs. Today it was "haivan asker" time again.
  18. Politics & Stuff

    Well count me in to, not just Vesper and Atomiswave. But regarding the Trump character he's a relatively new face in town. In my time the arch-villain in America was tricky the Dicky. Regarding the British connection the truth is we European peoples have been going out of the way to avoid offfending the Tories. If only because the Tories were the no one target of the Kremlin and the Soviet spies. So we were going out of our way to defend the British Tory establishment for their various blinders. But now what ? When Bojo is a certified nincompoop, what other name are we going to use ? Are we resort to science fiction, like Jules Vern, to describe Bojo ? He's a nincompoop, period.
  19. Politics & Stuff

    It's a mixed bag. They actually did support some junta governments when there was no communist danger to justify it. But those who were responsible for that are exactly the same ones who support brexit now.
  20. Chelsea 0-1 Bournemouth

    Did n't see the match - only the fluke goal in a small vid. Some things must change in the month of Jan me thinks. We cannot possibly fail to stay in the top four.
  21. Politics & Stuff

    TACTICAL VOTING - CRAZY FIND I went to the analytical results. There are 650 seats and I could n't look into all of them but I looked into 64 cases, the letters V, W and Y. I concentrated on seats won by the CONS that could have changed hands with tactical voting. The LAB-LIB wins and the easy Tory wins did not matter to me. Out of the 64 I found 15 ! That makes what over the lot of 650 seats ? 150 seats maybe ? Thereabouts ! Now in 4 cases out of the 15, the Libs were denied because Labour did n't help or Labour and the Greens did n't help. In the remaining 9 cases Labour was denied through the inaction of the Liberal voters, Greens, Plaid Cymru voters. So YOU gave it to Boris - and a hey and a ho ! So all the talk about tactical voting affected only me, my friends Andy and Deborrah from Cardiff and another bloke I met in a pub - Tim, Teddy what was his name ? Brill ! What can I say ? Lots of medicines are needed.
  22. Politics & Stuff

    THE ELECTION RESULT A big win for Boris but the non-brexit parties polled over 50% Brexit is on however and it will ruin Britain for sure. But what I don't understand about the opposition is why all this tribalism when Johnson was the common great enemy ? They could have arranged everything re. tactical voting among themsleves. and in this way no one would lose a seat he was close to winning ! FPTP works that way. Could Johnson have won if there was 100% tactical voting ? The final party pecentages indicate otherwise. It is perhaps mathematically possible -like with Trump and Hillary Clinton- but it looks to me extremely improbable. After all, neither Labour nor the Liberals were anywhere near absolute majority and both were supposed to be looking forward to a post-election pact. What else ? No government ? Boris pm not by winning but "praeses honoris causa" ? It was not something unexpected - like say the 2016 referendum result was unexpected - so I just fail to understand who was responsible and why. Please help me !
  23. Chelsea 2-1 Lille

    Lille are gone from the CL / Europa but in France they are third in the league.
  24. Everton 3-1 Chelsea

    I think Azpi was one of the greats but he is past it. Zouma about whom I was not convinced even before his injury three years ago, is I 'm afraid not Chelsea material. We are like a half-built house.
  25. Everton 3-1 Chelsea

    We 're evidently out of form and with the champions league match next week it's worrying. Everton did not impress me at all, to give them credit. It is we who allowed them to score three times. The second goal they scored was a horrific bungle up. Again we played better in the first half and almost nothing in the second half. What does Lamps think about it ? Some transfers are needed, but not Bakayoko-Drinkwater stuff again.
