  1. 17. Mateo Kovacic

    Mateo Kovacic is a fantastic talent – but he should be bringing even more to this Chelsea team https://www.footballfancast.com/features/fixture-in-focus/chelsea-vs-liverpool/mateo-kovacic-is-a-fantastic-talent-but-he-should-be-bringing-even-more-to-this-chelsea-team Mateo Kovacic is one of those players who always seems to be operating in only second or third gear.
  2. Piotr Zielinski

    With it rumoured that Sarri if he comes wants to bring several players with him and Zelinski is said to be one of them. So thought we might like to get to know him bertter He is obviously a great player and knows Sarriball inside out. Can yo imagine both him AND Jorginho coming with Sarri OH and drag KK along for the ride! OMFG!

  3. Chelsea 1-1 Liverpool

    Blimey! Ive only read 2 posts so far and both yours and completely agree 100% with both!
  4. Chelsea 1-0 Videoton

    Probably my starting team Only thing I see iffy are putting both Ethan and Cescy in unless Cescy goes forward and Barkley goes right. I'm not his biggest fan but I MIGHT be tempted to put RLC in in front of Barkley to have Ethan as the DPM with Cescy and RLC as L & RMF - but I'm not too fussed either way in this game. I do also like the Idea of Barley as RW I'm traveling that day and don't even know when I will see the resuly and it will be doing my head in..
  5. Sarri But Not Sarri Thread

    Wouldn't that mean giving Kovacic back?I see your reasoning but I'd prefer to overpay if necessary for a guy up front cause right now we have 2 thats offering us no goals no matter how hard they try. So my main goals are same but gimme a striker instead. But saying that IF the chance of a WC CF was to happen then of course I wouldn't say no. Its all about the team not individuals no matter how much we might like them.
  6. Sarri But Not Sarri Thread

    But I think also that English football is evolving too towards the more technical,fast game instead of the big boot up the pitch. So the players have changed to suit it. Or would that be the other way round? We made a start in Conte year 1 where we also played some of the best football I had seen us play for years. Ive said it before but its amazing to think that Sarri has been with us for such a short tim wheras Peps had 2 years and Klopps had 3 plus theyve had muliple transfer windows to bring in the players they need to play their styles of football. We are by no means a finished article and we need positions upgrading if we are serious about wanting to be real contenders in the PL AND of course the CL. But how much will we have changed by this time next season let alone 2 or 3 if Roman is content with how we are going.
  7. 17. Mateo Kovacic

    hello Mrs Feeling no pain whatsoever right now and would normally stay well away from PC nut been sending out prezzies I made for peeps and I heard my bleep shouting me I was just wondering if we could try Alonso or Pedro as striker. They cant be any worse than Morata shirley! I stuck my Videoton (what a great name eh) in match thingy. Not sure about Derby yet
  8. Chelsea 1-1 Liverpool

    At least we got called 'A Quality Opponent'
  9. Its been one of these nights! Happy birthday to me Excellent album Merriweather Post Pavillion
  10. Sarri But Not Sarri Thread

    This is what all of us think I am sure. Did Sarri just say these things for some reason or does he really think it? He is obviously not a manager that plays the blame game or to diss players publicly he thinks needs upgrading but I will be interested to see what players HE gets linked with in 3 months. Roll on New Years Day. Hopefully it will be a Happy Blue NewYear! And lets hope Eden gives us a nice Xmas prezzy!
  11. Krzysztof Piatek

    You can imagine what his price will be like come the summer. IF we got in now with the swap plus cash we might swing it. Whats their finances like?
  12. 17. Mateo Kovacic

    Nope. We have needed a proper balance for Eden ever since he joined and we tried MANY in that position with varying degrees of success. A WC RW has been needed as much as we have needed creativity - which in the MF we now gladly have (tho I'd love Kovacic to set his sights on the goal as I think he could do that. It would solve that particular issue) And I dont understand how/why Sarri hasn't tried other players on the RW AND striker. He has done it very successfully at Napoli. Maybe he feels more pressure on him to succeed here?
  13. Chelsea 1-1 Liverpool

    Sadly I agree with all you say again. Its a misguided jealousy,class association and distinction. Add that to like you said the anti communist undertones - which of course only came in with Roman. whereas before we were only really hated for the false ultra right wing policy of some of the lads. The media as I see will always find something to label us for and put us in some pigeonhole.i No matter how amazing we may get on the pitch those stories last till tomorrows papers come out. All this used to be like water off a ducks back and I used to quite enjoy the 'us against the world' it but it just seems to piss me off more now.
  14. Piotr Zielinski

    I just read that the Dippers turned him down the summer of 2016 for only £16mill Arsenal keen to pip Chelsea to Zielinski signing https://readchelsea.com/2018/09/30/arsenal-keen-to-pip-chelsea-to-zielinski-signing/ Euro Paper Talk: £134m Zielinski wanted by Liverpool, Chelsea https://www.teamtalk.com/news/euro-paper-talk-liverpool-chelsea-battling-psg-for-134m-poland-star-man-utd-may-have-to-pay-e150m-to-land-midfield-target
  15. As a suggestion from me PLEASE have a listen to this very high. 1st Time i listened to it it blew me away. Good album
  16. And we have to remember mate ZZ hasnt got that much managing experience. RM B team and 19 months in A team Hes not walked into a club in a real mess and have to re build it. Unlike Conte with us.
  17. I WAS thinking Conte may have even got considered for them. They could do worse.
  18. Chelsea 1-1 Liverpool

    Its weird tho mate - Dunno about you but even after all these years it grinds on me! i'm sure it must be some character flaw but the red mist appears lol Theres always been some wanky team the media kiss their arses (never was us tho even when we swept everyone away apart from a short time Mou year 1 and Conte year 1) and the Scousers are normally one of them. And now add Shitty to them.
  19. Thats the devil we don't want Mrs!
  20. Well I'm shocked!! I thought with his history at clubs he would be their next Fergie! But better the devil we kmow than the one we really dont want!
  21. Chelsea 1-1 Liverpool

    With Salah not playing up to scratch they SHOULD have enough fire power to cover for him. I know that we would benefit from a couple of them. But lets hope they do a Spuds freeze and do it early!
  22. John Terry

    John Terry 'to return to Chelsea as Under 23 boss on £800,000-a-year deal' Terry will replace Jody Morris who has left to join former Blues midfielder Frank Lampard's Derby https://www.mirror.co.uk/sport/football/transfer-news/john-terry-to-return-chelsea-13334371 NOTE :: EVERY media reports that The Sun reports this yet if you check the link that reoport has been removed for 'Legal Reasons' so make of this as you will!
  23. 17. Mateo Kovacic

    No - worse case is we lose them, get paid less than 1/2 of Edens worth as we have no leverage and we cant afford a top 3 upgrades nor a AMF that matches Kovacic!
  24. Chelsea 1-1 Liverpool

    Is anyone as pissed off as much as me at all the response about the game was concerned about the scouse gits? EVERYTHING I;ve read in the media is yet again about the medias darlings. How well they played, how they fought, how Sturridge can walk on water. What a bunch of wank! Not a dickie bird about us fucking up their wins in a row record they were going for or how well we have taken to Sarri. I know I should be used to it and not really care. Maybe a little jealous I'm not sure. All I know is that its really pissed me off. EDIT: A small example of what i mean. These are the CHELSEA headlines I always have up on my browser from NewsNow. All the ones I hightlighted are PRO Scouse. And theres others that say stuff like L'pool EARN point at Chelsea which still makes it all about them not praising us whatsoever, Grrr Grrrr Grrrr
  25. Chelsea 1-1 Liverpool

    Not only vultures but also our own supporters. We have a lot already questioning his team selections. While I would have my preferences I do still understand why he makes the decisions he has done and as what he is trying to achieve is working we must give the guy that freedom to do it his way. I never dreamed we would adapt so well after having such defense minded managers and honestly thought it may have taken much longer than this anf with far more bumps in the road. But while there shirley will be a few we have just won 1 game and very nearly amother against one of the strongest teams we will meet in the PL. It still sticks in my throat even texting that last comment about the scouse gits. Just look how a couple of years with the right manager AND a board that trusts and backs his decisions can make!! Lets hope that OUR board can see what Sarri is doing is working and has his back. Ask Santa Roman for a nice new striker and RW for Xmas seeing as Sarris been a good boy this year!t
