    Would you play Malcom in the middle ?

  3. Chelsea - Watford

    Richarlson's misses were crucial turning points in the game but if Fabregas had scored to make it 2-0 I think we would have won not at a canter but it wouldn't have been as frantic as it turned out. What I'd like to talk about is atmosphere at the ground. One of my first ever away games was when I was 12 at Watford in 1979. In those days Chelsea fans had a notorious reputation that was well deserved to be honest but we sang for 90 minutes and packed out the away end and as per usual had a good few in the home end. Watford then were laughed at remember this is 1979 they had a gay chairman (Elton John) and there fans were all mums and swotty looking kids when their fans sang it was like a school choir. Ok it's almost 40 years ago but to hear their fans outsing us and take the piss out of our support is downright embarrassing.

    Italian comments about an English football team? as I don't speak Italian and there wasn't an interpreter on the train it's pretty pointless mamma mia !!

    Agreed are footballers so thin skinned that they have to post something like this it's the sort of thing a 14 year old girl would do.
  6. The Conte Thread

    I love Conte my favourite manager since Vialli he comes across as 100% genuine and not a conniving cockroach like Mourinho. But questions have to be asked. Every game we lose we get outclassed almost to the point of embarrassment (maybe not Saturday but we were piss poor). Arsenal 3-0, Spurs 2-0, Man United 2-0, the cup final and against Man City a couple of weeks ago. All of these games we were second best by miles and never looked like we would get anything out of them. We capitulated after Sanchez scored in the cup final dodgy goal or not and Arsenal could have easily got five or six. There is also the tendency to play long ball and at times we look bereft of ideas the City game was painful to watch Conte made bad choices in the starting line up and then the substitutions. I'm not a knee jerk sort of geezer I've seen enough shit Chelsea teams over the years but I am a little nervous.
  7. Crystal Palace 2-1 Chelsea

    Gary Locke I remember sitting in Gate 13 watching him running up down the right wing in 84 in a Palace shirt it was weird. Thought he was underrated as it goes. I knew a lot of older Chelsea who knew him as he came from Willesden. The mighty Trevor Aylott played for Palace as well.
  8. John Terry

    Oh JT what have you done?. This was taken in 2011 he should have told that twat Winstone to fuck off.
  9. 23. Michy Batshuayi

    Hate to say it but I can see the crowd turning on him if he doesn't perform well in Morata's absence.

  11. Crystal Palace 2-1 Chelsea

    It's at Selhurst Park home of the middle class wannabe Ultra's.
  12. Chelsea 0-1 Man City

    Haven't read much of the comments but was surprised Moses didn't play he would have given Delph far more problems than Dave. Willian was disinterested and ineffective and I think any offers that come in for him should be listened to. City looked good but we waved the white flag as soon as Morata went off.
  13. Crystal Palace 2-1 Chelsea

    I don't think they will beat us but they will definitely score. Just one of those weird quirks going back for decades is players or teams would always break their ducks against Chelsea. One off the top of my head was Ian Rush joined Leeds and he couldn't score in a brothel until they played us of course.

  15. Free tickets for Chelsea United -

    Looks extremely dodgy I've looked on the Chelsea foundation and there's no link to this. This geezer has also been banned from other Chelsea forums.
  16. Chelsea 5-1 Nottingham Forest

    Yes a 17 year old making his debut in front of 40,000 and playing in midfield even though he's a centre back. I feel fucking cheated I paid my money tonight expecting to see the new Zidane.

    Very funny weekly David Squires column in The Guardian. https://www.theguardian.com/football/ng-interactive/2017/sep/19/david-squires-cartoon-harry-redknapp-football-managers-early-season-troubles

    Rooney got 12 points that's eight more than Everton have managed
  19. Chelsea 0-0 Arsenal

    Are you taking the piss ?. We slaughtered Everton a team that have spent £150 million quid. We inflicted Spurs first defeat at Wembley and we had nine men against Burnley. Leicester isn't an easy place to go and it would have been far more comfortable if Tibo hadn't given away a needless penalty.
  20. Chelsea 0-0 Arsenal

    Great post my son. Someone who's objective and can see the bigger picture a lot of posters should read this and take note.
  21. The English Football Thread

    I've got mates who support Spurs so when they win they come in the pub and shout Yid Army and we are the yids. But the same pub me and my mates shout Yidos at them they could take offence and get us nicked it's just plain weird. The word Yid said to a Jewish person is derogatory but I can't see how it's derogatory to say it to mates of my mine who are Catholics with Irish parents. If you meet a Spurs fan and ask them who they support often they will say I'm a Yid.
  22. It's life Jim but not as we know it !!
  23. The English Football Thread

    True but I don't think he's the answer they need the type of manager like they previously had Big Sam, Warnock etc. He did a good job at Fulham no denying that but bloody hell he certainly blotted his copybook with England.
  24. 9. Álvaro Morata

    He also said that if we lost to Tottenham Conte would leave. Mark Chapman finds it hard not to tell him to stop talking bollocks he clearly thinks like everyone else he's a tit. As for when he played for us he made Kezman look good.
