  1. 13. Thibaut Courtois

    As soon as the team plays poorly Courtois plays just as badly; he never plays at a level above the team for a string of games. That, for me, is THE indicator that he is nowhere near De Gea and Neuer. De Gea may make highlight saves and shit but that guy drags his team to wins. I don't care care how he accomplishes that, he just does it. I don't think anyone would give a shit about it either if he was doing that for us.
  2. 21. Davide Zappacosta

    Mods, get the banhammer ready.
  3. The Conte Thread

    2-1 W @ Tottenham 0-0 D vs Arsenal 0-1 L vs City 1:0 W vs United 1-1 D @ Liverpool 2 wins, 2 draws, 1 loss, and 8/15 points against the other big-6 teams is okay; it's not great but we will live. The Arsenal game is the one result that hurts the most IMO because that side was beatable, the City game was terrible but sometimes you simply have to pay your respects to your oppenent's performance. City would have been favourites against any team in the world at that time. As @Jason pointed out, the Crystal Palace and Burnley games hurt us the most. You just can't lose your season opener against fucking Burnley (no matter how good they are in the table right now) and to the worst team in the PL this season.
  4. Lucas Moura

    What a depressing transfer target
  5. 27. Andreas Christensen

    Cesar - Luiz - Christensen (from left to right) is what I want to see tried at least once this season. Cesar would be a huge help covering for Alonso's lack of pace and defensive ability while Christensen could do his best Cesar-impersonation as the RCB like he did in the last 20 minutes against Burnley. Wouldn't mind trying Luiz as RCB either, however, I'm not sure he wouldn't be too aggressive going forward.
  6. 9. Álvaro Morata

    I vehemently disagree with that notion. In my time as a PL fan (past 10-15 years) I have seen only a few players who were able to move with the ball at their feet with such precision and efficiency as Drogba; rarely did a touch of his feel wasted when he was in control of the ball. Having seen you listing someone like Van Nistelrooy among the PL players you claim had a better close control than Drogba though, it'll be for the best if we just agree to disagree
  7. 9. Álvaro Morata

    The disrespect for Drogs though. His close control is one of the best ever in Premier League history.
  8. 30. David Luiz

    For real. This club is pure trash-TV drama at times
  9. 13. Thibaut Courtois

    Fucking finally.
  10. Chelsea 1-0 Man Utd

    Any reliable information why he was dropped? We don't really need more drama lol
  11. 13. Thibaut Courtois

    Yeah, that third goal was pathetic. It's also getting clearer and clearer that other GKs have surpassed Courtois at this point. You can count the games Courtois single-handedly won us in the past 3 years on one hand; that's just not good enough for a someone who's supposed to be top-3 in his position. You can blame our defense as long as you want but like strikers, sometimes you just need your GK to win a game on his own.
  12. Roma 3-0 Chelsea

    God damn, the worse we play the better the comments here
  13. Roma 3-0 Chelsea

    Alonso is slower than a corpse ffs
  14. General Transfer Talk

    I've been on the Fekir hype train for well over 3 years now. It's time more passengers hopped onto this train
  15. 23. Michy Batshuayi

    New Kalou in the making. It's not that far-fetched, actually; there's a huge gulf in class between Batshuayi's performanes as a starter and those as a sub.
  16. 28. César Azpilicueta

    You know you're going through a terrible form when someone like Kolarov (!) can get by you. I've never seen Cesar's reactions this off, is it fatigue?
  17. Chelsea 3-3 Roma

    Willian, confused as to why Conte put him onto the pitch, passes the ball to the billboard.
  18. Chelsea 3-3 Roma

  19. Chelsea 3-3 Roma

    Conte deserved that Dzeko goal. Setting the team up this defensively at fucking home against an inferior team is pathetic.
  20. 28. César Azpilicueta

    Shocking stuff from Cesar, easily his worst game in a Chelsea kit. At times I thought he was drunk.
  21. Mesut Özil

    God no.
  22. 23. Michy Batshuayi

    You're right, he's none of those things. He's the GOAT.
  23. 10. Eden Hazard

    I would love to see Eden play with Fekir behind Morata.
  24. 22. Willian

    I can't watch Willian anymore. I just can't. Everytime he has to play a pass it seems like his brain is trying to understand quantum physics.
  25. 15. Victor Moses

    He didn't, though. So what's your excuse for bashing one of our players for no reason?
