  1. Chelsea - Spurs

    Glad they exposed themselves for the scum they truly are again. Was getting bored of the media wankfest.
  2. 10. Eden Hazard

    @The Skipper I bet it starts now
  3. Chelsea v Spurs

    Lmao for once Hazard's fit and up for it and we leave him on the bench Happy to see Terry on though, between himself and Fabregas there's enough anti-Tottenham feelings to still put out a strong performance. Hazard has to come on between 45~65m
  4. 10. Eden Hazard

    welcome to the internet bro . It's okay, such opinions are easily changed back after a string of good performances.
  5. Yeah but to be fair, no-one expects these academy players to be first team players straight away and winning the title. But they should be back up choices at least and considered as such, no point in just having them train with the first team, they need exposure too. Instead of Pato we use Traore, instead of Oscar Loftus-Cheek, instead of Pedro we use Musonda etc. Because we're going to make first-team signings anyway. Also with Van Gaal at United, it's not he chose to use youth players instead of what he has it was more he was forced. Fair play to Rashford and co for stepping up, but he's only had to rely on them because he spent a ridiculous amount of money on players like Depay and couldn't utilise world class talent like Di Maria etc.
  6. Chelsea v Spurs

    Hoping Terry's playing today. Nothing like a proper Chels in the line up to kick Spurs up their asses.
  7. 22. Willian

    Nah fuck that. Listen I'm for this sale, based on factors like he's on his last year and that £50m is a great figure for a 28 year old winger. But to discredit Willian this season based on stats alone is a weak argument. I guarantee that 16 included more match winning goals/assists than Diego Costa's. Even if it isn't, without a shadow of a doubt Willian was the best player by far this season to wear the Chelsea shirt. Football is more than statistics at times and fans often need gentle reminders. It depends. The one jibe in past season is his poor conversion rate in the final third. While I still take issues with this, I remember his goals return tally was awful (something like 1500mins between goals), if he can take his goal scoring and assist form in the first half of the season into a full PL season then he'll be a wonderful asset to compliment Hazard and Fabregas.
  8. 11. Alexandre Pato

    That's why it made no sense. Hiddink said he wouldn't probably be ready until April, incredibly stupid loan in a season where every player was needed and we sign one that needed over 12 weeks to get fit for action. It's not even a calculated gamble lmao, now based on a cameo appearance here and there we're going to occupy a squad role of him. Don't know why I'm surprised, we like to sign 'names' over actual talent and form.
  9. 9. Radamel Falcao

    Imagine anyone bought the number 9 Falcao shirt..
  10. 11. Alexandre Pato

    Just goes to show the extent agents are running the game. He barely features under Hiddink so the man himself clearly didn't think much of this signing and Conte wasn't signed in Jan. Wonder who's real idea Pato was.
  11. 11. Alexandre Pato

    At least Traore is on of ours, somewhat. He's young and he's trying, it's only a upward learning curve. Pato was never going to develop with us, the loan was absolutely nonsensical. I don't doubt those kia joorabchian links are true. Sigh. Oh well, hopefully he'll be fine with being 3rd/4th choice. Whatever..
  12. 11. Alexandre Pato

    Lmao, what a joke. If this is a sign of things to come in this transfer market.. Good luck to us lol.
  13. Chelsea v Spurs

    Wait, he got a 3-game ban? I thought that was issued for violent conduct?
  14. 22. Willian

    I'll put it to you this way.. How many times have we had a team come with a big offer for our player, we say no and the very next season fans will be in arms saying "should've sold him for £x million when we could've." (Oscar most recently comes to mind) Iirc, Willian's into the last year of his deal (his initial 4-year deal from 2013 set to expire). The club, as it's been reported, have had a deal on the table for a while, but the Brazilian is yet to sign. I'd love it if he did, but if it's between £50m this year or free in July 2017... well.. lol
  15. 11. Alexandre Pato

    To be fair it wasn't always smooth sailing for Torres as soon as he got back to Atletico. He was benched quite often and reports a few weeks ago suggested club and player had reached an impasse on an agreement to tie him up next season, currently on his final year on his AC Milan deal. I'm sure this form he's found will help him secure that however
