  1. Chelsea 0-0 Lyon

    I hope Bulka gets a bit of playing time... or maybe we get to see Rob Green
  2. Aaron Ramsey

    Honestly, I'd want either him for Lallana to join us and be our attacking central midfielder. But considering Lallana's injury problems, I'd say Ramsey would be really great for us. Has an eye for goal, works hard and we get to weaken the Arse.
  3. Chelsea 0-2 Man City

    Let's not pretend like there's not a ton of English fans saying stupid shit too... especially on Twitter.
  4. Arsenal 1-1 Chelsea

    Gotta say, seeing Drinky play yesterday was so weird. He looked like he wanted to play in Jorginho's position (even though we've seen him be quite attacking like his first game for us last season, idk who he played against but I remember him almost scoring and making good runs) and then he would try and push forward but then run to get back in position, only to not have the pace to recover. Still though, I think it's possible he can be a good rotation option. To me, he looks like he's lacking some confidence.
  5. 12. Ruben Loftus-Cheek

    I feel as if people are too critical about RLC after he gets 15 mins of football (at a time when we made big changes and weren't even playing that well) having come back from holiday a few days ago, trying to adjust to an entirely new Sarri system. What I did see was RLC running about a bit more than I've seen him do for Southgate's England which indicates to me that he's at least giving a shit. Poor penalty, yes, but I have faith that he'll improve and show us how good he is. Solid option to have off the bench.
  6. Robert Green

    Judging by his recent interview, he seems like a well spoken guy with a great attitude. Welcome, Rob!
  7. Mason Mount

    Plus it will be much easier for him to get used to his surroundings and just play football - I don't know how strong the teams are but I can imagine Frank's Derby pushing for promotion. That would be a good challenge for Mason, especially if he's starting most of the games, right? I don't think sending players out on loans constantly is good for them... especially if they're going out to different countries each time. This is probably best for another topic but I do think it must be quite hard to have to live in a new area every season and to try and impress the boss, especially when they know you'll be off next year.
  8. 7. N'Golo Kante

    Jesus Christ, they better not sell Kante. They could offer us 300 million and I'd still hope we say no. I can't imagine who we replace him with and I'm also sure that Kante wouldn't even necessarily push for a move away. Dude seems happy where he is, challenging for trophies and I'm sure he's settled.
  9. The Conte Thread

    Damn it, if he truly IS gone, then I wish Antonio the very best going forward. Such a great coach, such a likable man and he gave me some of the best memories I've had of football in recent times! I'm really sad he's gone. I do think the board fucked up big time (expecting him to compete, having lost Matic & Costa, plus getting an inexperienced Baka, Daddy Drinkwater and Morata) and if Conte had a top CM and RW (as I assume we will get for Sarri, for example, Jorginho has apparently completed his medical), he could've done a lot better. Feels so strange to be saying goodbye to Antonio - I did wish we could resolve things. But I will support Sarri of course. Just disappointed we waited this long for something to happen and it's Conte going despite having done some pre-season training...
  10. Gary Cahill

    Jesus people are acting like he's Hitler with the 'die' and shit like that.
  11. The English Football Thread

    I feel for Leicester, they really need to buy a CM who can do the job Kante did for them but that can be so hard...
  12. Tomáš Kalas

    I didn't watch the match, only around five minutes because I decided to rewatch an old episode of The Flash (don't know why, just felt like it, I guess) but from what I saw, Fulham were very good, played calm passing football and the right hand side of Fulham's attack were particularly good. Did Fulham generally have a very good match and you can see them pushing for promotion or was it just incredibly lacklustre Newcastle struggling to really get started?
  13. Tomáš Kalas

    Starting for Fulham tonight in the first EFL Championship game against Newcastle at home at Craven Cottage. Excited to see how he does, hopefully very well.
  14. Name Changes thread

    Could I have a name change to 'The Power' please (assuming that can be done, with the space), if that can't be done, I'd be happy to take 'The1in21and1'. Thanks.
  15. The Mourinho Thread

    Oh my god, the shitstorm. Anyways, I'd just like to chime in with some of my own thoughts, regardless of how shit and irrelevant they are to this current conversation: IMO, Mourinho had his chance and yeah, both sides fucked up but people have to blame him too. Chelsea fucked up sacking and replacing every manager they hired for a long period and rehiring Mourinho was a good move, but not only did they seem to not back him as much as they could have, but Mourinho ended up selling a bunch of good young players and playing "park the bus" (dislike that term) counter attack football and kept only the guys like Mikel who were content competing from the bench. Now, how you can have this team "parking the bus" against the bigger sides is beyond me, it's not like we were the 2012 bunch, we spent a lot of money and had to rebuild the team but he still picked Ivanovic as RB when he was shit (and still is, apparently) and got rid of a bunch of good young players like KDB. I don't like how there's some in-fighting between members here, shouldn't we all be fans of the club and not Mourinho? Having loyalty to him is fine but not when it takes over your love for the club. Also, I remember my loyalty to AVB's project (or should I say, THE PROJECT because damn that was exciting) and I disliked Lampard for a period but in the end, both sides fucked up and well, Lampard is still a legend and mistakes were made but in the end, here we are.
