  2. The Pub - Discuss Anything

    Further to the comment I was going to make to @Vesper in the match thread Just imagine an end full of them. We have gone far too reserved,conservative (small c) in England. Its like 'THEY' have won and there's no extremes any more. No bright colors - just magnolia. There needs to be another - some sort of rebellion - fashion wise, music wise, drug wise. With every new subculture - underground youth culture, there is a drug equated to it. With the 60s flower children they had their cannabis,acid, the Mods,skinheads,punks had their speed, the Casuals,ravers their MDMA,acid,ketamine etc I dint condone the use of drugs but at the same time thees been some very expressive and creative,clever people spring forth from these different times. But for too long now there has been no new underground youth culture. The last good one was the ravers. Lots of bright colors, very expressive,creative peeps. Everybody completely wasted, having a great time, no trouble whatsoever. Since then theres been nothing. Mediocrity There just seems to be middle of the road, average,everywhere we look Nobody stands out from the crowd any more. Not sure if this is just happening in the West as a whole or Britain but I really think its time for some sort of change. Some color, a bit of chaos,anarchy.
  3. PAOK v Chelsea

    EXCELLENT! but I think I should answer this in the Pub thread as its off topic.
  4. Sarri But Not Sarri Thread

    Rotation and youth are his achiles heel eh/ I can understand him wanting stability in these early days of course I can but I would still see no problem at all throwing them in as he is doing with Willian/Pedro for the odd few minutes. No harm in that I really cant see.
  5. PAOK v Chelsea

    Agree with all apart from I like Fekir And Emerson has some stomach illness he picked up Get prepared to lose the plot mate cause I see Cahill in our immediate future! Wouldn't it be great to have the sort of atmosphere PAOK has at our home games. I would happily pay double for a ticket.
  6. PAOK v Chelsea

    You know my thoughts but I just dont see Sarri doing it He puts Willian above him and I think he plays favorites Not even sure CHO/Ethan will get time.! Unless wse are winning sometime in the 2nd half. Sarri doesn't seem a gambler. It might be his weakness. Some of his comments yesterday were telling “I don’t know about Loftus. For me he is a very good player. I don’t know if there is a spot tomorrow. There is in the future. Now it is very difficult because in the first part of the season it is very important to play with a very solid team. I might change four or five players, it is impossible to change every player in the match. “Unfortunately you have to play with 11 players, 17 players tomorrow won’t agree with me. There is a match tomorrow and on Wednesday after Sunday at West Ham. There will be a chance for everyone, but not for 25 or 28 players the truth is this.” Asked about Eden “For Odoi in his position in the last match played Pedro and Hazard. I have also played Moses and Willian. Ampadu, Odoi and Loftus are the future, I don’t know if the right time tomorrow is for Odoi.” He clearly sees the PAOK our biggest opponent in the group but he doesn't seem to think the player will care about the intimidating atmosphere which is why I dont see him rotating as much as we would maybe want. “ Tomorrow will be difficult, not as somebody told me for the atmosphere, it will be difficult because they are a good team. They have a very good team and we have to do a very important match if we want to gain points My players are professionals so they must be able to play in every situation. I am worried about the opponent, they are a very good team, not the atmosphere. We have to play good football. Our target is to qualify and then with the first spot in our group. To win our group, the match tomorrow is the most important as it is the most difficult match.” I can see him starting Willian - Morata - Pedro Barkley - Kante - Jorgi Alonso - Rudi - Cahill - Zappa Kepa

    Must say the Shitty game isn't how I expected it going but Fekir is doing his job well! Just need Manure to muck up now

    Sorry - no boots.
  11. PAOK v Chelsea

    Emerson out then GOALKEEPERS: Kepa Arrizabalaga, Wilfredo Caballero, Marcin Bulka DEFENDERS: Antonio Rudiger, Marcos Alonso, Davide Zappacosta, Gary Cahill, Andreas Christensen, Cesar Azpilicueta MIDFIELDERS: Cesc Fabregas, Jorginho, N’Golo Kante, Ross Barkley, Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Ethan Ampadu FORWARDS: Pedro, Victor Moses, Olivier Giroud, Callum Hudson-Odoi, Willian, Alvaro Morata Cant see CHO as a starter now and Alonso probably starting Maybe a Willian - Morata - Moses front line?
  12. Man after me own heart! Tho maybe not the Shining bit lol I'm so sorry that I wasn't around when Keseys Merry Pranksters were on the road. They were doing pure magic with their tests. Mixing audio,visual and aromas together. And more importantly having the heads good enough to be able to take peeps up and down when necessary. I met Babs once and had a afternoon with him in the Dam and he had some good tales. Thing was that George Clinton from Funkadelic was there too and he talks in tangents. Not music but a good watch
  13. Sarri But Not Sarri Thread

    You are right mate. He does seem to have a very good eye for detail and manages to get across to the lads just whats goimg wrong. Which have mostly been defending issues. All we have to do now is find out how not to get in them positions to start with. We are bound to make mistakes in some matches. Just as long as we learn from them and we go down fighting I can live with that. The scouse gits will be a good test , just would have been nice to have those 3 games in a few weeks time just to get some more practice in. But at the same time it could just be what we need now to show up our weaknesses and do summet about them. Klopps had 2 years with the scouse gits. Sarris had 2 months with us.

  17. 44. Ethan Ampadu

    I think the main problem we have is do we concentrate efforts to use him as a CB or DPM? With Jorgi here for awhile he wont see much time there. It seems Rudi will be here awhile too. Which only leaved Luiz spot. And if the reports are right then we will be going against the grain and giving him a longer term contract. It means we have 2 great young CBs both worthy starters in many games, trying to kick Luiz out.

    AND CHO!! His contracts been on the table as long as Edens

    Dave is the guy that mothers want their sons to turn out like. As you rightly say it doesn't need a armband to command respect. I would be more than happy if all the lads had the same attitude as him. As long as we got lads like him and Jorgi we are doing something right.
  22. 44. Ethan Ampadu

    ONE DOWN!! CHO and Eden now!! Really hope the kid has some great games coming up True Blue Ampadu ready to keep learning and working https://www.chelseafc.com/en/news/2018/9/19/true-blue-ampadu-ready-to-keep-learning-and-working Ethan Ampadu signs five-year Chelsea contract extension https://www.skysports.com/football/news/11668/11502060/ethan-ampadu-signs-five-year-chelsea-contract-extension
  23. 5. Jorginho

    LOL Maybe Luiz has selective hearing?
  24. 5. Jorginho

    Again I think its seeing the whole picture of the game. I know theres many captains as defenders but IMO I think someone who is more central to the team has a much better idea of the way its going. He has or should have both offense and defense in his head, Daves not central. And something that puzzles me is Dave - as our captain and a great defender - hasn't been able to tell Luiz what mistakes hes making. He should be able to shout at him in the match and tell him just what he should be doing. And Luiz should be man enough and with the experience to let Dave tell him. Whether they are too close of friends and Dave doesn't want to rock the boat who knows But I've seen no signs of that. Have you?
