    Very solid performance and his celebration was so emotional. He clearly wants to be a Chelsea player more than anything and his instagram post before the match showed how grateful he is for the chance he got tonight. I really hope we don't crush this boy's dream.
  2. 24. Gary Cahill

    That is exactly why he needs to be protected though, this is no way of remembering him when he retires, especially since we are talking about someone who has contributed so much, like you said. Letting him play and being ridiculed by everyone in the world, even Chelsea fans, isn't something that honours him, is it?
  3. Chelsea 0-0 Arsenal

    On any other occasion i would have agreed with you, but i think that this time you are massively exaggerating with your interpretation of how people reacted after the match. There was no overreaction whatsoever like you said in a previous post, nor was there any kind of uproar about the draw, exactly because of what you said about Conte. Every single Chelsea supporter trusts him and holds him in such a high regard, that is willing to forget and forgive any bad result, the perfect example being last year's cup final. Losing a big trophy to arsenal of all teams, was something unthinkable and unforgivable some time ago, yet everyone was willing to move past it very fast just because of Conte. I really doubt the reaction would have been the same if we had someone else in his place. The main focus of the vast majority of the posts i read after match was about the team selection, NOT about the result like you claim. Everyone was baffled by the starting eleven and with a good reason. Sure, Conte is allowed to have a bad day and make mistakes, but we have moved past the point of certain decisions being just simple mistakes, we are talking about things that are regarded as universal truths by now. Fabregas and Kante cannot operate in a two man midfield, especially against big teams. No matter how many times he pairs them together, it is never going to work. Even if Bakayoko was not fit to play for 90 minutes, i can't understand why Conte didn't start him and then substitute him after 60-70 minutes. About the selection of Cahill, i don't really have to explain much, it is just unacceptable. If Conte is being forced to play him against his will just because he is the captain, then he needs to put his foot down and refuse to do so. Everyone will back him up, after all noone is more important than the club even if he is the captain. I don't even want to think about the possibility of Conte selecting Cahill out of merit because then i will truly doubt his mental stability Again, i don't think that there is a reason for overreaction or over analyzing people's reaction, i find it perfectly normal for someone to have thoughts like those i mentioned above, Noone is calling for Conte's head or anything, everyone loves the guy.
  4. The Conte Thread

    Conte fucked this game up big time. The saddest thing about the whole Cahill fiasco is that Conte is forcing me to dislike a Chelsea player and that is a feeling that i never, ever want to have about anyone, especially when we are talking about someone that has contributed so much during his career and is the current captain. No matter how crap Cahill is, it is entirely Conte's fault for playing him, it is that simple. And it is not only that his individual performance is abysmal, his inclusion affects the whole team in a vert negative way. It is clear as day that he makes everyone nervous, i don't think that there is a single player that trusts him.
  5. Kurt Zouma

    I am sure that Cahill and Chiellini were technically just as raw as Zouma at that age. Other than that, i agree 100% with your post about the skillset of the modern centre back, though i believe that Zouma can for example work on his passing and make himself able to pass the ball forward instead of hoofing it, like he does now. All i am saying is that there is a lot of room for improvement, as long as he works really hard and stay injury free. EDIT : Something that i wanted to say in my original message but i forgot. We are judging a player's future with the assumption that we will play with 3 centre backs for the remainder of our life. I can easily see us going back to a formation with 4 at the back in the near future, in which case Zouma could be worth keeping around. Sending him on loan for a couple of seasons won't hurt anyone, i just want our club to show that they believe in him.
  6. Kurt Zouma

    I don't mean any disrespect to your opinion, but i am really amused when people make such definitive statements about something over which they have absolutely no control. I certainly can't predict Zouma's future, but i can tell you a fact. Zouma is 10 times the player any of Cahil, Bonucci or Chiellni were at the age of 22. Many of you forget that we are talking about a centre back who is that young. Yes, his technique is not good, but this is something that a defender can easily work upon as he grows older, since it doesn't come in the form of dribbling or flair, like with attacking players. If we go on to sell Zouma and he manages to stay injury free, i can easily see us regretting it, just like with De Bruyne. He has all the tools to become a very good centre back, especially under Conte's guidance.
  7. 7. N'Golo Kante

    Maybe he is still wondering if N'Golo is for real, i do too sometimes.
  8. 7. N'Golo Kante

    My word, this guy was magnificent once again. I can't believe there are guys in here who don't rate him highly enough, he is easily in the top 4 - top 3 Chelsea midfielders in my lifetime, even though he has been here for only two seasons. At 26 years old i wouldn't change him for ANY midfielder in the world, him and Hazard are the two players we much keep at all costs if we want to reach a higher level.
  9. Deadline Day!

    Don't worry guys, it is still early in the summer, we have plenty of time ahead of us.
  10. Virgil Van Dijk

    More like Chelsea banging pool (among others)
  11. Arsenal 2-1 Chelsea

    Emotions (and alcohol) are running really high at the moment, so at the risk of sounding ungrateful, this leaves a really, REALLY bad taste. I know winning the league was an overachievement and i am ecstatic about that and also about having a guy like Conte leading our beloved club, BUT losing a major trophy to motherfucking arsenal of all teams, well that i something i simply cannot handle. This has really fucked up the good feelings i had for this season. I fucking hate arsenal.

    I am speechless, human stupidity never ceases to amaze me.
  13. Chelsea 4-0 Man United

    Damn, i am still buzzing. I have really missed that feeling.
  14. Chelsea 4-0 Man United

    And for Roman too
  15. Chelsea 4-0 Man United

    I haven't felt that good for a reaaaaly long time. Watched the match at a pub with my mate and we were the only ones supporting Chelsea. We didn't stop making fun of manure not even for a minute. Thanks to all the players and the coaching staff for making us feel proud for our club once again.
