  1. Gonzalo Higuain

    Great news...... for the italian restaurants in London. I swear, everytime i watch him (try to) run, all i am thinking is "Now he is gonna burst"
  2. 22. Willian

    When you say here, do you mean in the forum or in Chelsea? Because when we are talking about fan opinion, we are talking about the opinion of the majority of the fans that actively support their club. That's the opinion that can affect a club to a degree, not the opinion of 20 guys in an internet forum. In that context, yes it has happened in Chelsea 2-3 times in the recent past, that is hardly repeatetedly. I was talking more generally though, managers take the blame 99% of the times even when it is not their fault, that is the nature of their job. When fans see that certain players are not happy with the manager for whatever pesonal reason and are deliberately trying to unsettle the team, putting their personal gain above the good of the club, then fuck yes they are going to blame the players and defend the manager. It is not down to the players to decide under which manager they are going to play, that's the job of the board. The players are obligated to follow the instructions of the manager and give 100% effort in every single match, not act like spoiled brats and choose when and if they want to perform.

    In all of the years that you have been watching football, how many occasions can you think of that the players took the blame wrongly for a manager's wrongdoings? Five? Ten? Now allow me to change some words around from your sentence and you tell me how many times you have seen this happening. The players get so much protection from the average club that they could be narcissistic (i am guessing that's what you wanted to say) bullies and the manager would still get the blame/sack.
  4. The Conte Thread

    What's funny is people like you, who disrespect a man who has won us two major trophies in two seasons, with every chance you get. It is a myth that your posts are controversial, they are plain toxic. I bet you didn't even celebrate when we won the FA, you just sit there contemplating what you will post next to bash Conte. No matter what you or some others say about him, he will go down as one of our most successful managers in all our history.
  5. The European Leagues & Competitions Thread V2

    Morata be like
  6. 7. N'Golo Kante

    Why do you seem surprised? If you look some pages back, there have been several posts saying how limited Kante is as a player, thus not belonging to the world class bracket. I remember that because i was laughing at how shortsighted people can be. Of course now everyone joins in the hype and saying how much they love him, but you know how that goes.
  7. 9. Álvaro Morata

    He took his goal well, but i noticed something else during the match that i find far more important and i am surprised noone else has mentioned it. There were 3-4 instances where he could have easily thrown himself on the ground, like he has done all season, but instead he opted to stay on his feet and try to hold the ball like every normal player. This shows what many people have been saying, that his antics are not down to him being physically weak, but rather him having poor mentality, something that is affecting his whole game, including his (in)ability to score. Now, i am not saying that this is a clear indication of him deciding to turn a new page, i am just hoping it is a sign of him working towards that direction.
  8. The Conte Thread

    I respectfully disagree, quality has nothing to do with popularity. Actually, most of the times those two things are opposite, popularity is being determined by how the masses perceive something and masses rarely take into account (or are even aware of) the actual quality of that thing. Especially in our days with the use of the social media, this has become even more evident than ever before, people say/act solely with the purpose of being accepted or liked by as many others as possible without even caring if they are true to themselves. That "member of the month award" was meaningless imo and if people stopped posting entirely because it was abolished, then we are better off without them for sure. I can show you a million examples of posts made by "unpopular" members being entirely neglected, only to be followed by a post made by a "popular" member some time after, saying exactly the same thing and receiving 10 likes. This of course is always going to happen, with or without an award, but there is no need to turn a football forum into a popularity contest and that is what was happening back then.
  9. 10. Eden Hazard

    Sadly, i think that it is time for Eden to leave. We have been really blessed with having a player like him performing his magic for our club, but at this point it is in both parties best interest if he is sold. Eden rarely shows up in the big games for one reason or another (especially in the CL), and that's where we need him the most. And when i say show up i don't mean play like 5/10 or 6/10, but carry the team on his own, because like it or not that is what we need with a roster like ours. At the same time, our board has refused time and time again to accompany Eden with other world class players and get the best out of him, so i can't really see the reason of keeping him here anymore. It is better to sell him and build a stronger, more balanced squad that won't rely on only one player to win matches and at the same time give Eden the chance to go to another team and enjoy the remaining years of his career. If of course a miracle happens and our retarded board decides to invest in some world class players to play along Eden, then i would love to see him finishing his career with us. I know this ain't happening but one man can dream.
  10. 7. N'Golo Kante

    One man army. At this point i don't give a fuck if everyone else leaves or is sold, as long as we keep Azpil and Kante.
  11. Didier Drogba

    The big guy turns 40 today, happy birthday you legend
  12. Chelsea 1-1 Barcelona

    Conte sure has a way to kill off our buzz, at least Cahill is not starting so that is something positive.
  13. Christian Pulisic

    That was the point i tried to make in my previous posts, so thanks for that. "Ich" might be how it is supposed to be pronounced due to his origin, but i have several buddies in the US that all call him Pulisik, not to mention that i have watched a dozen interviews in which his name was being pronounced that way.
  14. Christian Pulisic

    To be honest, Pulisitsch is how i used to pronounce his name in the past, but Americans pronounce it Pulisik.
  15. Christian Pulisic

    From the pundits that i have heard saying his name, it is pronounced Pulisik.
  16. Next Manager?

    Here we go again with this fucking bullshit. Just give the manager job to Marina, with her unparalleled negotiating skills she can talk any ref into giving us the win. And even if we need to bribe, i bet she can low-ball them to get the best price around. Fucking stupid board.
  17. Edin Dzeko

    At this point useless is a word to lenient to describe our board, they have reached a legendary status of stupidity. Forget Dzeko, i have found the perfect target man for our board. He is cheap as hell, will sit on the bench without complaining, will never ask for a raise and he will still score more goals than Carrol
  18. 10. Eden Hazard

    He is just saying what Chelsea fans have been saying for years. The board won't give a fuck though, no matter who says it.
  19. Motherfucker, not this crap again, We just can't catch a fucking break.
  20. General Transfer Talk

    At this point i don't even give a fuck if we don't sign anyone. This season was lost even before it started, when we failed to address any of our problems during the summer (once again). Even with this team, i believe that we can manage to secure a CL spot for next season. As painful as it will be to watch the rest of our games, that is all the matters for this season. For me, the biggest transfer would be to acquire a technical director who actually knows a thing or two about modern football and to replace that fucking useless Marina. This was we can finally rebuild during the summer.
  21. 8. Ross Barkley

    The logic is quite simple actually but people refuse to see it for whatever reason. This has been the club's standard for quite some time now, so deal with it and stop beating yourself up. And i can't really understand why people are upset specifically about this transfer. Compared to the ridiculous amount of money we spent on mediocre players in the past few years. Barkley's price (and homegrown status) makes him a decent addition to the team, even if he remains a squad player for the rest of his career.
  22. The Conte Thread

    Oh you are definitely right, i also have lost the respect i had for him, but that doesn't mean i am not grateful for what he has won for our club. See it this way, at least the guy has given you a lot of reasons to throw parties during his time with us
  23. The Conte Thread

    Spot on but i'd like to add another perspective to what you wrote. I feel that Mourinho is even more cocky and arrogant than usual when he is referring to Chelsea matters because he knows that he is our most successful manager. Despite all his wrongdoings, i am still grateful to him for what he has achieved here BUT at the same time this is another big reason why i really want Conte to stay with us for many years. If the board finally decides to back Conte up with some top signings, i am confident that he will eventually take that mantle for himself, and that will definitely shut Mourinho's mouth for good.
  24. General Transfer Talk

    There is better chance of us buying Griezmann for a year and then loaning him out to Vitesse than selling him to barcelona
  25. Antoine Griezmann

    I got your point right away mate, he seemed to have misunderstood you that's why i said that i don't have anything else to add and deleted my initial post.
