  1. General Chelsea Stuff

    I often come across stuff that we dont have anywhere that we already have a thread open to post it. And I'm sure others have/do to. Things about the Chelsea in general. The team as a whole, the supporters - whatever. And I couldn't think of a better section to make it. Love this Tweet - The Willian and T'Boa ones cracked me up. Pretty much hits the nail on the head!
  2. What TV Prog / Series are you watching or following now? I thought seeing as we have a thread for movies and music we should have one for the telly! Let us know about your TV viewing. What you are watching now, what you would recommend, whats coming on in the future etc etc. I shall start off by asking if anyones read the novel American Gods by Neil Gaiman? I ask because Season 2 that is based on the book is starting in mid March and I'd be interested to know more about what happens. I had downloaded Season 1 and had it for awhile before watching it. But i had so many peeps saying good things I got the Guinness and popcorn out and watched it all in one go. Great program! Apparently theres some characters left along with producers thats changed but I'm really looking forward to it! Heres a quick trailer but some more on Youtube.

  4. Jack Grealish

    Though this guy night pop up now n then and as hes in links right now ........ And Spuds really want him!!! Chelsea set to hijack deal for £20m Championship star Grealish has an admirer who has helped facilitate the Blues’ interest in him, former Villa and Chelsea defender John Terry is said to have endorsed the 22-year old’s talents to the Chelsea hierarchy. https://footballleagueworld.co.uk/chelsea-set-to-hijack-deal-for-20m-championship-star/
  5. Nicolas Pepe

    I think we should be doing what we can to get this guy. I really wouldn't like to see him playing against us.and seems the rest of the top 6 are wanting him. Him on the right and Aouar on the left might be very interesting. Scout Report: Why Nicolas Pépé is the most wanted winger in Europe https://www.footballwhispers.com/blog/scout-report-nicolas-pepe-lille Who is Nicolas Pepe?

  6. Anderson Talisca

    We need to go for this lad ASAP The guy has scored 12 goals and 4 assists in 8 games so far Hes on loan from Benfica right now but has got a lot of top teams after him. Benfica will obviously want him back but the Dippers really want him and have been in touch sending peeps to China. Mou has been a long time fan of his and wants him He needs to be in Chelsea Blue
  7. Nicolo Zaniolo

    He will more than likely be off to Juve BUT...... At 19 he will be far too young and too much of a gamble for many of us on here!

    Barca are after the new Lewandowski. The guys already got 7 goals for Genoa Hes got to be worth a go. What do you think Mz @Vesper
  11. Having only just watched the 1st two season the last couple of days (with the other 5 ready to watch) I'm seeing that the prequel has got the go ahead with Directors,actors etc all sorted and a Pilot has been ordered. Apparently its from long before when the White Walkers roamed so should have a lot of trippiness and magic. Looks good I see Josh Whitehouse from Poldark - also in season 3 apparently but will soon find out 0 is in it. He was shite in Northern Soul but I'm tremendously biased against everything that waters down my beloved scene.

  12. Counting Down By Picture From 1000 Its only a bit of fun but just trying to get peeps posting in different parts of the forum. I had this game on my site and it was quite busy and fun finding an unusual image with that particular number on. IF nobody follows you on please give it 12 hours before you repost yeah Lets give it a bash!
  13. Jose Gaya

    With MAYBE RM coming after Alonso it might pay us to start looking around, As my 2 long time faves Sandro and Telles would be impossible we need to look elsewhere. I also like Alexandro Grimaldi which we have a thread for byt we have none for Gaya who looks nailed on for us!! And it would really piss off Manure cause they were linked with him all summer. Hes young,fast, good football awareness, loves getting forward and is good with the ball at his feet and can actually defend too. Only thing is hes got a contract till 2023 - only a bit of paper tho eh! WHO IS JOSE GAYA http://outsideoftheboot.com/2014/10/12/scout-report-jose-gaya-valencia-and-spains-young-left-back/ STYLE OF PLAY, STRENGTHS, AND WEAKNESSES What has been key to Gaya inheriting the left-back berth from Bernat has been the attacking traits he has shown to be akin to his predecessor. With Bernat often venturing so far forward he could have been mistaken for a winger, the same has been true of Gaya who is given licence to push forward and overlap Pablo Piatti, the Argentine attacking midfielder who is encouraged to cut in from the left in Santo’s 4-2-3-1 system. Santo has been a huge advocate of his full-backs going forward, with Antonio Barragan, the former Liverpool right-back who is enjoying a renaissance under the new manager, also liberated on the opposite side. Key to this is the defensive discipline of Javi Fuego, the midfield enforcer who drops back into a defensive 3 when Valencia have position, allowing for Gaya to play more as a wing-back with a greater focus on getting into more attacking positions. It allows for Valencia’s attack to look fearsome when he joins Piatti, Rodrigo and Parejo as creative influences and his attacking statistics coming from the left are impressive. Only Rodrigo, Alcacer and winger Sofiane Feghouli have created more chances than Gaya’s 5 so far while his 9 successful dribbles at a rate of 1.3 per game is only bettered by Andre Gomes and Parejo. It all portrays a full-back keen and adept at charging forward with the ball and the opposition is worried about it too, only Parejo and Piatti have been fouled more times than Gaya. To further indicate his comfort on the ball, his range of passing has been superb with an 86% completion rate so far, misplacing just 14 of 191 attempted passes. His crossing can also be dangerous, though it has only led to a single assist so far. At the risk of being caught out of position going forward Gaya’s electric pace can rescue him in a defensive sense, though he is solid enough as a full-back, making the most amount of tackles in the Valencia squad so far with 22 and making 17 interceptions, a figure bettered only by Javi Fuego. His tally of 18 fouls conceded shows he is not afraid to make a challenge and there is a clear reluctance to be beaten by his opponent; he has been successfully taken on just once in the seven games he has played so far this season. Just don’t expect him to win an aerial battle against a physical winger, standing at a slight 5ft 7 inches, he struggles in the air against stronger players. All of the qualities you expect of a modern full-back are the qualities that Gaya performs well, though there will be a view from his manager from Santo that work will be required on an over-zealousness in the tackle, which gives too many free-kicks away, and the recklessness which reared its head in the win over Atletico where he presented the visitors with a penalty with a needless handball. Still, he held his own throughout the contest and again stood out against testing opponents, and if he continues the exemplary form with which he’s started his senior Valencia career, then it won’t be too long before he’s being considered as the next Los Che left-back, after Bernat and Jordi Alba before him, to be capped for Spain.

  20. 3. Marcos Alonso

    Doesn't give Dave too much to do then eh. i totally agree about picking the cunt in the first place. Thats 1 of the 3 things that pisses me off about Sarri. But Alonso doesn't have even the basics down right now. How often does he get a cross past the 1st closest to him? How often does he take it to the baseline? @MoroccanBlue is dead right what he says. The system of Sarris CAN work and has but this bunch of gutless wet farts lack both the character and the abilities needed to play it.
  21. Sarri But Not Sarri Thread

    Hes got a bunch of players noit suited to 'his style' of football. We talk about the Spuds freeze but our lads dont have any fight in them. It only affects me when I lose the plot at us. So I try really hard not to bitch and whine like many on here, even tho they have every valid reason to do it. But our players make it fuckin hard sometime to keep carefree! If they can't give a fuck if they play like wankers and make us look pathetic why the hell should I not call them what they are? Theree's only 7 I would keep out of them all - and 2 of them will be gone. .I just hope that whoever owns us come the summer of 2020 that they realize the shite we are in and they do something drastic and rebuild us from the top down.
  22. 3. Marcos Alonso

    Bit bloody hard seeing that his job is a defender mate!! This has happened to our last 2 managers also. Were they weak? It is a reourring thing with this group of players - a lot who were chosen by our previous 2 managers. The players play shit with no soul,fight or spirit but the manager takes it up the arse1

    Blimey I see a ghost!
  24. Roman Abramovich

    He would fit in well mate. Old time variety hall comedia/actorn even before my time! Cant find owt of him 'acting' I agree mate. I've never met anyone who was self made that didn't bend as many rules as they could to breaking point. but maybe that says more about commercialism than peeps morals. I thank Roman for what we have done together and would like to see him become more involved and back in the stands. But it might just be time to start fresh with EVERYTHING. From the top down. I'd like to see us goto someone who is already a large sports club owner with the experience of taking a broken club apart and rebuild them WHOEVER that may be! Billionaire Abramovich dumps Russian assets in preparation for sanctions The billionaire Roman Abramovich, who was blacklisted by the US in April last year, had his British visa revoked and was forced to acquire an Israeli passport in the summer, has systematically been selling off his Russian assets. On 7 March, Abramovich, the 11th wealthiest person in Russia with $10.8 billion, sold the Russian bank VTB his 20% share in Channel One that he had owned since the early 2000s, after acquiring a package of shares from Boris Berezovsky. One week later, on 13 March, Abramovich’s Crispian Investments fund disposed of 2.7 million shares of Nornickel – 1.7% of the company’s capital. The deal was done through an accelerated collection of bids, and the securities were dumped on the market at a 7.5% discount to the market price. Another five days later, on Monday 18 March, it was learned that Abramovich had decided to sell 0.8% of his primary asset – the metallurgical and mining company Evraz. Abramovich’s offshore fund Greenleas International Holdings Ltd., Alexander Abramov’s Abiglaze Ltd., Alexander Frolov’s Crosland Global Ltd. and Toshi Holdings Ltd. announced on the London Stock Exchange website that they intend to sell 25.4 million Evraz shares (1.8%). Abramovich’s company will account for 42.25% of the shares being sold. As with Nornickel, the deal will take place through an accelerated collection of bids. The placement will be organized by Citigroup Global Markets Ltd., Credit Suisse Securities and UBS Europe. The sellers must undertake not to sell any more Evraz shares for 60 days after the deal. At present, Abramovich holds 30.5% of Evraz shares, Abramovich holds 20.69% and Frolov has 10.33%. It is possible that the billionaire is preparing for US sanctions by getting rid of assets linked to the Kremlin (e.g. Channel One). Abramovich may also be trying to withdraw from his position as a major stakeholder in Evraz, an analyst from a major rating agency believes. However, it is not impossible that the oligarch has simply decided to cash out on shares while Evraz’s results are good and there is a large demand for its stocks, he notes. On the other hand, the three consecutive deals to sell Russian assets do not make this option likely. The hard cash at Abramovich’s disposal is needed by the Kremlin. RBC reported in December that the president’s administration has considered the billionaire and Evraz as a source of funding for the construction of the Moscow-Kazan high-speed railway. His funds will be used to fill in the financing gap for the railway project, which has been rejected by Chinese investors twice in the last three years. Russian Railways estimates that the project will cost 1.7 trillion rubles. The government is prepared to provide 700 billion from the federal budget, but around 1 trillion rubles ($15 billion) will need to come from other financing sources.
