    These pundits never fail to amaze me. So David Luiz is not a Conte type of defender, but Cahill is? How come? He is fucking dog shite, can't defend, can't play from the back, can't keep his shit together if Terry is not there, backs up like a fucking maniac, is prone to silly errors every week etc. Had David Luiz been English he'd have been on every pundit's lips. But since he is a foreigner of course "he can't defend". Similar to Claudio Bravo's situation when the media looked like they was expecting his mistake against United so much just to have a reason to praise Joe Hart once more. Because he is English, of course. When in truth Joe Hart is a fucking poor man's Begovic.

    Is it a really, really bad omen that the first thing I thought of reading that sentence was 'Arsenal'?

    Charlie Adam: "I still think John Terry is the best CB in England. Age isn’t an issue, he looks after himself tremendously well.“ [Sky]
    Charlie Adam: "John Terry and Sam Allardyce have obviously had a chat and he is willing to come and try it out I think.“ [Sky]
    Charlie Adam: "Antonio Conte has come out and said he wouldn’t stand in John Terry’s way either. It would be right to bring him back.“ [Sky]

    Surely he knows now that 4-4-2 is our best formation going forward. Sure, the wingers can be toyed with some more but that must be our base.

    That, in my opinion, was always clear.
    I used to say that DM was the best of the three positions Nathan offered. These days that's no longer true because CB seems to have dropped off Nat's slate all together. He's done far better at left back than I thought he would but I still say DM is the place for him. Absolutely thrilled that  Eddie Howe seems  to agree about that.

    Yes, I think they key is that I wish him to succeed *as long as* he doesn't out succeed us.
    He is Chelsea, and despite what those that don't like him say, he wasn't going to walk away. He would have got us out of this mess. Oh well, flogging a dead horse I think. I must have had this exact conversation a good 50 times around the time of that Sunderland match.

    Wow. Don't get me wrong, I firmly disagreed with the decision to sack Mourinho, but what's done is done and I have to say it is nice not having to defend both him and the club after every press conference.
    I hope he's happy at United (and I think he's not), but now we have to relegate him to the past and move on as one club - despite the same people trying to recreate the same rift by slagging off John Terry and trying to pretend he's not the best CB we have.
    Cheering on another club is one (or, rather 5 or 6) steps too far.

    Lots of people who are just as much Chelsea as you agree that they want United to fail. I therefore can't deny that yours is a widespread point of view but I don't think the Jose hatred is shared by a significant percentage of us. The anti-Jose minority is hugely over represented in this forum's membership. Personally, I'd be happy if Jose wins the Europa League and finishes second in everything else.

    In 2002-3 the season before Roman came we were so skint our transfer outlay was £500,000 on Oliveria and a free transfer in De Lucas. Since then we have spent millions upon millions on new players and had unparalleled success. Now we can no longer spend that amount of money my advice is learn to live with it. We have hopefully a new Bridge on the way which is going to cost a fortune and as someone who has been going to Stamford Bridge since 1975 I am delighted that we are staying 
    In 2003 even with that minuscule amount spent on players we still managed to finish fourth and as Leicester have proved you don't need to flash the cash to win trophies. Man City were lucky that they were basically given a new ground by Manchester council so the infrastructure was in place when they were taken over. If we have a few lean years so be it believe me last year was fuck all to some we've had in the past.

    Jose would have found a way to shield that back four. Just  as he did the year before when winning the league by such a comfortable margin. He wanted  defensive recruits but didn't get them. Even so, had he not been abandoned by the squad, he'd have produced another competitive season.
    Jose left in part because of his stupid behaviour over the Eva incident but mainly because our squad believed their own hype. They felt they were too good to play the Jose way  even though that 'way' was designed specifically to hide their shortcomings. Oh well, they behaved as they did. The upshot of which is that the whole world now knows how useless some of them are.
    Edit: Just noticed that I must have quoted the wrong post, since my comment has nothing to do with Skipper's.

    Thank you for the civilized, well thought response. That's indeed rare to see. (and rather laughable to read the other posts, that cheered me right up.)
    Just to be clear, I'm on board with Conte 100%, how could I not be? When the time will come that Chelsea face (and please pay attention to my wording here) Mourinho, then yes he will become public enemy #1, we'll have to win no matter what.
    However normally, in any other match, I would like to see José win, which, should that happen, will cause me to cheer for him.
    World is not so black and white as people believe it to be.

    I don't think we're ever going to agree on this. In my opinion reducing immigration is not racism. The economic argument for immigration is sound, but mass immigration causes the social fabric of society to rip apart; lots of ghettoisation has occured over the years in places like Dagenham and it breeds hatred, and nationalist tendencies. Immigration is good, but too much (and equally too little) is not. Farage is not a racist, in any definition except the warped Left wing one which used to be used to keep white people quiet. To be honest his party is being used as a beacon for the wrong kinds of people and while it has served its purpose (UKIP did force the referendum, after all!) he would be taken far more seriously if he went to the Conservatives. No, I don't have complete authority over what is or isn't racist, but neither do you and having experienced racism first hand I use that as my definition. Perhaps I'm wrong, it is entirely possible I've just been desensitised to lower forms of racism. The poster was a lapse of judgment, but he doesn't make his own propaganda and I think the bloke that came up with it probably got a good talking to.
    Yes, they did the same during your referendum campaign. The difference being that England has been subjected to this negative attitude for so long that I think the electorate simply chose to ignore it. Although it did make me laugh when Remain campaigners who wanted to crucify the City during the recession were now many of the people trying to urge people to listen to it.
    Well, I'm glad Boris is not running. Gove represented exactly what I wanted from Leave, I would definitely trust him to do what's right (in my opinion). I'm not for the Norway option, if we go for that we might as well have stayed in. I'm not expecting to have my cake and eat it, to trade with the EU will likely involve a tariff but we can certainly negotiate something better than 10% which is the normal going rate. Yes, it could be viewed like that but countries like France, the converse may occur - Eurosceptic feeling is high there and therefore giving the UK an unfavourable deal would be like a shot to the foot, as in the event that they leave, they will probably get the same deal. Plus Germany calls the shots in the EU; and if it imposes a bad deal on the UK it would cause loss of jobs there. Combined with deals with other countries around the world like India, we may well come out stronger than when we were in. I'm pretty sure there was another figure for Iceland which I heard in a TV debate, but I can't remember now. My point is that where one closes a door, another opens; a lot of countries will see this as a good opportunity to get a favourable deal with the 5th largest economy in the world.
    Not quite. By the point we were to start stripping rules away from the Bill, for all intents and purposes we would be outside of the EU. It'd be a far quicker exit process than 2 years.
    I expect there will have to be a decision made whether Northern Ireland (for the people) whether they favour further integration with the Union and for all intents and purposes just become 'Northern Ireland County Council' or if they would prefer to join with Ireland and remain in the EU. Both would have their benefits, but I can't comment further because quite frankly I don't have enough knowledge on the NI perspective or the issues facing it. Regarding Gibraltar and NI, I think we'll just have to see what happens, but the UK can certainly make it as painless as possible for both countries (Irish passport holders for example would still be eligible for free movement as before the EEC) and it won't be the disaster as advertised.
    By "New Currency" I assume you mean a Scottish pound in the literal sense. I think one reason why Scotland voted to remain is because one of the key Leave points (mass immigration) does not apply (at the same extent as England) to Scotland. It is a mainly England focussed point. I think that, however, there would have to be a more vibrant economic manifesto in order for an independence vote to succeed: Basing an economy on a finite commodity (and also how much actually goes to Scotland; Many of the ways of dividing it up favoured England & Wales) was never going to be a vote winner because it can be exploited by the opposition so easily.
    I just can't see the EU removing the Euro from any entry deal, otherwise existing Eurozone countries would see leaving and rejoining as a way to get rid of it, unless Brexit significantly changes their view towards federalisation - entirely possible, but I wouldn't bet on it.
