  1. Domestic Cup Competitions thread

    I have to agree even though it hurts to say so . The fa cup has been completely usurped not by the premier league but the champions league when four teams are chasing all season to get a place the fa cup is largely an unwanted distraction. The fa cup is dying on it's arse I wish more fans would admit it.The worse offenders are the BBC they keep coming out with the cliche the magic of the fa cup that might have been true but when Man United refused to play in it and played in a tinpot exhibition match that's when some of it's lustre died funny enough we won it that year. The fa cup used to be great the 82 season when we beat Liverpool and narrowly lost to Spurs was brilliant especially as we were so shit then. Every away game we played in the cup we bought thousands usually more than we would have for a league match most clubs did. Now fans don't even turn up for home fa cup games and who can blame them if you're a season ticket holder at Reading or Doncaster if you have to pay again.

  3. Chelsea's Transfer Targets

    It is a weird one alright we were threatening legal action if it wasn't overturned and now nothing. It's like getting done for drunk driving you're counting down the days till the bans lifted and when it is you don't bother driving anymore.

    He was but there wasn't much competition to be honest .
  6. The English Football Thread

    Coventry fans have been treated like shit by all concerned I feel really sorry for them. Good trivia question I saw Chelsea play three different clubs on the same ground Selhurst Park. Palace, Wimbledon and Charlton.
  7. Your Chelsea FC Memories

    Saw his debut against Liverpool me and my mate got badly crushed in the Shed that day. To say he was eccentric was an understatement he was the first sweeper keeper. We were really shit back then and his first season we got relegated with only 20 points although he didn't sign till about March. We nearly got promoted in 1980 but after that the team and Borata went badly downhill the lowpoint was the 6-0 loss to Rotherham in 1981 there were rumours he was drunk that day and I'm not sure he played for us again.. He was often in the pub pretty soon after the final whistle when we were at home apparently. He's the definition of a cult hero and is remembered fondly by all us old boys he was a decent keeper and the first player I ever saw kick the ball out when an opposing player was lying down injured he got widely applauded in the media for that and rightly so.

    Kepa is one bad mistake from getting the boo boy treatment or the ironic cheers when he makes a simple save. There were a lot of mumerings on Tuesday night but they will only get louder if his form continues. Some people don't like booing me I've got no problem with it when a pampered millionaire is not doing his job properly he should be told in no uncertain terms.

    There's a new drinking game being played. You take a shot every time Man United do it's called dry January

    Only 10 points between us in fourth and the Geordies in 14th utter dross in the PL bar the top two no getting away from it.
  12. Super Frank Thread

    Again there's references to Klopp, Poch and Pep they have absolutely nothing to do with us and our current plight. These lazy comparisons mean fuck all the only thing that matters is the here and now and we're struggling badly. Since the start of the new year we've had two straightforward wins against a struggling Burnley and championship Forest, on the other side of the coin the tedious draw against Brighton, Newcastle where we never looked like scoring and the less said about last night's fucking fiasco the better.
  13. Super Frank Thread

    Three clean sheets in fifteen in all competitions is diabolical and with some of the games we've got coming up this stat won't improve.
  14. 1. Kepa Arrizabalaga

    For me that goal by Sturridge great shot but he's slow getting into position.
