  1. Bernardo Silva

    Great talent. Potential superstar. One of the possible attacking options to strengthen Chels for me so slightly annoyed he's not joining but that's football. I'm surprised they're making these kinds of signings under Pep though. He doesn't stick around for long and I highly doubt he'll be in charge when their young guns reach their prime. And that's the thing. These players aren't in their prime. Signings like this doesn't make them a super team or a team to be prematurely feared. That would take years to build. And even then, there are no guarantees.
  2. Champions League thread

    I'd love Barcelona in the group. Would give us the opportunity to see how good this Chelsea side truly is. I've never liked easy runs. If you reach the quarters or semis by dodging the top teams you haven't proven anything. The games vs big teams are the most enjoyable as well.
  3. Chelsea 5-1 Sunderland

    Best offence in the league Best defence in the league Top scorer in Harry Kane Highest total points ever And you finish 2nd. Chelsea Football Club, home of the proud party poopers.
  4. Chelsea 5-1 Sunderland

    JT 26 LEGEND
  5. Rank PL Title Win

    Robben wasn't anywhere near the player he is now back then. Great talent but inconsistent, which is normal for a young player making the move from PSV to Chelsea. Pedro was a far more consistent and decisive performer in 16/17. Diego trumps Didier in 04/05. We didn't see performances like Diego's in the first half of the season from Drogs until his third season at Chelsea.
  6. Rank PL Title Win

    As for the ranking, every title win conjured up a similar level of glee. 09/10 was the most fun though. That final run felt like cheating.
  7. 4. Cesc Fàbregas

    12th man of the season. Very grateful for his contributions this season.
  8. Chelsea 4-3 Watford

    You can tell the centrebacks are rusty and you can tell they've never played together. And Chelsea's possession play simply hasn't been good enough. In fact, the usual level of possession play isn't good enough to become a top side in Europe.
  9. Chelsea 4-3 Watford

    Conte's constant use of the 'big thirteen' (starting XI + Cesc and Willi) made me think the fringe players were crap. Guess they're a bit better than that. He really did it play it safe by refusing to rotate.
  10. Chelsea 4-3 Watford

    Agree. It's where I imagine him next season myself.
  11. Riyad Mahrez

    Agree with the bolded part. Average is very harsh.
  12. Riyad Mahrez

    The player he was in 15/16 is never returning. It's like Rooney and Drogba in 09/10 and Messi and Pirlo in 11/12 to name a few examples. They hit peak form for a year or so and everything they touch turns into gold. Messi scored 91 goals and provided 27 assists in 2012 I think. Never repeated it again and never will. Mahrez is a better player than he's been this season as he's been poor, but he's not better than Pedro and Willian.
  13. The German Bundesliga Thread

    Every football fan should watch Robben's match-winning goal vs Leipzig today. And while you're watching, keep in mind he's doing it in the 96th min of the match. I've been a Robben fan since EURO 2004. He simply refuses to get old. He won't even allow never-ending injuries to stop him. The man is relentless. Turned into a proper football legend after his move to Bayern.
  14. The English Football Thread

    Utd and City out of the top 4 would've been truly glorious. Arsenal and Utd is the second best thing. So, yeah, I concur, sir. I concur.
  15. 23. Michy Batshuayi

    http://www.goal.com/en/news/1862/premier-league/2017/05/13/35471172/batshuayi-mental-conte-makes-the-right-call-again-to-clinch?ICID=HP_FT_3 Ain't that something. It's hard for me to criticise Michy as he's barely played. He's obviously failed to impress the manager in training but still.. To play so little and having endured so many embarassing subs. At least he has one highlight in 16/17.
