  1. Liverpool 2-2 Chelsea

    Oh and by the way, Pulisic is 20 years old. Win would be superb, of course, but this first half gives Chelsea so much reasons to see rays of hope going forward. Go on!
  2. Super Frank Thread

    Like your post and the points you make. Just to clarifty, Emerson represents Italy and has been selected a couple of times this year.
  3. Man Utd 4-0 Chelsea

    I feel this was a game where the scoreline doesn't tell the whole story. As much as we shouldn't make long-term conclusions based on one game, United shouldn't be too confident going forward. I don't see them finishing top four this season. We're very much into the pre-season fitness and timeframe, still. Time will tell, but I do feel very positive looking at that youthful-energy in that Chelsea team. I really do think we played alright. What if we didn't concede a penalty? What if TA's and Emerson's strike didn't hit the woodwork? What if we didn't have as many game-changing injuries? What if...? Very positive 45...60 minutes. Professional press conferences. Defence needs sorting out but other than that lots of promising young players in Chelsea's hands right now. It's unheard of to get a chance like this in top football, let alone England. No time to sulk. Work's just starting.
  4. 10. Christian Pulisic

    So much negativity. Brilliant signing, a potential superstar (he's only 20!) for £57.6m, which is nothing in today's market. Timing can be questioned, but if we do miss out on a Champion's League spot and end up losing Hazard, then it won't be another catabolic sh*tshow of a market trying to get anything and everything come the summer. Immense potential, great transfer!
  5. Álvaro Morata

    As is saying he WILL fail. Goes both ways and there's no way to predict it. I personally think he'll be great.
  6. Nemanja Matic

    Or Bonucci wanted to stay in Italy all along and the rest is just a fabrication. Either way, there's no emotion in business, just numbers. If the numbers add up, selling to Juventus instead of Manchester United would make more sense. I'd personally keep him in the squad unless there's a problem with his general attitude.
  7. Alex Sandro

    Player transfers are a lot more complicated than that. Agents, families, personal preferences, third parties, contractual sell-on clauses, paperwork (UK is notorious for this) - and that's just a start. It's not only about money, we're just not as attractive as for example Bayern, Barca, Madrid, it's a fact, unfortunately.
  8. Romelu Lukaku

    Agree, quality signings. Plus, if other clubs knew they had the "Lukaku money", they'd be held ransom.
  9. Chelsea Kits thread

    Work of art
  10. Romelu Lukaku

    Looking at Everton's spending and Lukaku reports-interviews, it seems Lukaku's sold. My guess is that Lukaku to Chelsea is done but they'll wait for 1st of July to announce any signings because of the incoming Nike kit deal.
  11. Diego Costa

    Plus if anything, this will send out a clear and positive message that Conte is in charge and has the full backing from Chelsea's hierarchy.
  12. Give Us Feedback/Bugs Thread

    Been away from the forums due to work and studies for quite some time but the new design looks very nice, well done to everyone involved
  13. La Liga Thread

    What an eventful first half between Real Madrid and Rayo Vallecano. The penalty incident was odd I thought, or?
  14. The Mourinho Thread

    What is this club about? Because, frankly, I'm not sure anymore.
  15. The Mourinho Thread

    Just from top of my head: Chelsea: season 2014/2015 - Champion of England, top of the EPL from matchday 1 to 38, finishing as second best attacking side and best defensive side in the league.Real Madrid: season 2011/2012 - Champion of Spain, records for most away wins, most games won in a La Liga season, most points in a top European League, record for most goals scored in a season (121), highest goal difference (+89).
  16. The Mourinho Thread

    Isn't it obvious looking the the way we play? They don't look interested at all.
  17. The Mourinho Thread

    It's on twitter, it's official.
  18. The Mourinho Thread

    He is too smart to return. Why should he?
  19. The Mourinho Thread

    If this indeed is the case, we'll live to regert it, rather sooner then later. Disaster.
  20. The Mourinho Thread

    Those type of measures do work, but obviously not with this group of players who lack character. All in all, I think you're jumping to conclusions - read players' autobiographies, his books, documentaries, he is notorious for putting effort into details, match after match. Obviously there have been shortcomings this season from every department in the club, starting from the board. Noone is free of blame.
  21. The Mourinho Thread

    Got to love him! http://weaintgotnohistory.sbnation.com/2015/12/17/10344444/weve-reached-the-acceptance-through-humor-stage
  22. The Mourinho Thread

    Real Madrid fans would love to have him back, that quick things and perspectives change.
  23. The Mourinho Thread

    That's the problem with Chelsea, we always go for the manager. This season players deserve every piece of criticism they get. Oh, and you're understanding it wrong. He is doing quite the opposite. He is taking the major share of the blame. He knows how human brain works, how media works, he just has to feed them and voila - there's talk about him getting sacked on every piece of paper but not a word of how shocking the players are. He is, in fact, deflecting the blame off the players. How many stories do you see floating around about players being poor versus Mourinho getting the sack? What's the ratio? - its embarrasing! You can't make bread out of shit, no matter how good of a baker you are.
  24. The Mourinho Thread

    Thought about writing something but you've covered all the points. Brilliant posts, love the attitude and couldn't agree more.
  25. The Mourinho Thread

    That's called confidence. You're confident enough to admit that, on that day, we lost to a better team. That doesn't mean anything more than that, no need to draw far reaching conclusions. Not proud of the result at all, but I can accept it, I can digest it. We've absolutely smashed teams over the years, does that make them bad teams? No, just bad luck, bad day, bad moment. They're still, objectively speaking, a great team. We've had this defensive counter attacking apporoach to our game for so long, that's how we lucked out way to Champions League trophy, you know you're against a better team (which Barcelona, Bayern were that year), we had tons of injuries, suspensions and you just hang on and wait for your moment to strike. That's the plan, that's the approach. Is it the right way to go long term? Probably not, but you work with what you have. Like the saying goes: sitast saia ei tee (translated from Estonian: you can't make bread out of shit).
