  1. Thibaut Courtois

    Some agencies now reporting that it could be 4 months out instead of 2...
  2. Pedro Rodríguez

    Love this guy so much already
  3. Oscar

    Jose Mourinho reports Oscar is a doubt for the game at Manchester City after picking up a small injury in training this week. http://www.chelseafc.com/news/latest-news/2015/08/newsflash--oscar-doubt.html
  4. Thibaut Courtois

    I think he is actually quite good technically with the ball at his feet for a GK, it's just his decision making that lets him down. I would say that at times he tries to do too much with the ball and gets himself into strife. There are times when most GKs would just smash the ball out of the area, but Thibaut sometimes tries to be too cute and gets his feet tangled. Hull away earlier this year comes to mind.
  5. Diego Costa

    I'm probably slightly more optimistic about Remy/Falcao taking us to the title, but I would say that, if nothing else, an extended absence for Costa (touch wood it doesn't happen) would certainly mean more pressure would go onto Hazard to score a large amount of goals.
  6. Oscar

    He didn't score a hat-trick...useless! No, and for me that's probably the main thing he needs to improve.
  7. Victor Moses

    Quite pleased with his performance against the Red Bulls. Think he can give us some important depth on the bench that we were missing last season particularly when injuries/suspensions struck.
  8. Radamel Falcao

    Personally, when assessing strikers I would take the opinion of a quality central defender who has played against them over the opinion of a scout any day of the week. It's not like scouts always get it right anyway.
  9. The Pre-Season thread

    He is joining up with the squad later due to Copa America involvement. Same goes for Luis, Willian and Falcao.
  10. The Pre-Season thread

  11. Loïc Rémy

    I hope so! I thought he showed quite a lot when he played there last season, particularly later on in the season. It would be great for him to get more games by playing on the wing when Costa/Falcao are up front.
  12. Wulfert van Ginkel

    Very good loan move for MVG, hope it goes through.
  13. Chelsea Kits thread

    Will probably depend on the opponent as with last season.
  14. Chelsea Kits thread

    I was thinking that also. Although I wonder if the fact that there's no sponsor on the front makes the seam look a bit higher than it actually is?
  15. Nemanja Matic

    That's a product of his ever-reliability and the way he just steadily goes about his business without much fuss. Love him.
  16. Filipe Luís

    Didn't see the game, what happened between them?
  17. Gaël Kakuta

    Transfer confirmed. http://www.chelseafc.com/news/latest-news/2015/06/kakuta-to-join-sevilla.html
  18. Diego Costa

    If I can be so irrational as to speak about what happened on the pitch tonight rather than carry on about rubbish rumours that are quite simply made up: I thought Diego looked like a completely different player tonight. He was moving just about the best I've seen him since he joined us, and made a couple of fantastic runs through the defence. He looked lively, agile and 'free'. It was almost as if he for once didn't care about picking a fight or getting picked out by the perfect pass, he just thought "I'm going to get the ball, run, and do something with it." I liked it.
  19. 12. Ruben Loftus-Cheek

    Mourinho's clearly disappointed and it's slightly unsavory to see this out in the public, but to be fair he's bloody right. No special treatment because you're younger, you do what's expected of you, or you don't play. I'm still certain there's a bit of mind games involved though, and I'm hoping RLC will take it the right way, take it as a challenge, and build from here. Time will tell.
  20. Diego Costa

    He doesn't. No they aren't. End of.
  21. Dominic Solanke

    Fantastic goal tonight, but beyond that his overall performance was very impressive. Surprised nobody has mentioned his Academy PotY award in this thread, Congrats Dom! The boy has had a magnificent season.
  22. 28. César Azpilicueta

    Cesar Azpilicueta books the referee for asking Eden Hazard for his picture!
  23. Petr Cech

    Sounds like he won't be fit to face WBA, but is a chance to make the Sunderland game.
  24. Branislav Ivanovic

    Agree. He seems to have an agenda to commit at least one foul in that exact same spot every game and eventually it was going to lead to set-piece trouble.
  25. 15. Kurt Zouma

    Yep, it's to do with the size of the tear. Some will walk off, others will be stretchered off, both with the same injury. Anyway, back onto Kurt, has anyone heard any further details about his injury? With the players getting a few more days off post-Liverpool game it's all been a bit quiet. I guess we'll hear at Jose's pre-match press conference if not before.
