  1. Politics & Stuff

    Do you like Politcs? Yes? No? Could care less? Well in this grande topic we discuss politics. Here is a test for those curious. http://www.politicalcompass.org/test Don't take the test too seriously, and post your results if you want to. My results lean heavily towards Liberty and Communism/Socialism. The stupid image extension isn't allowed on Talk Chelsea. Keep things civil people.
  2. 3. Marcos Alonso

    An alumni of Real Madrid's outstanding youth academy and Chelsea's newest mam; Marcos Alonso. He only made one appearance for Real before buggering off to Bolton Wanderers. He stepped up and made thirty-five league appearances over three seasons before leaving for Fiorentina. No stranger to England, he was loaned out to Sunderland and made a further sixteen appearance in the Premier League. Welcome to the new fellow; hopefully he gives a better show than the last Fiorentina transfer.
  3. Ola Aina

    Young English defender. His name is murmured in the tabloids lately.
  4. The Pub - Discuss Anything

    I remember why I only post on here once or twice a year. See you in six months.
  5. 5. Jorginho

    How about this 'Win or loss, Puliszola's logic is shyte'. It doesn't even matter if Jorginho is a good player or not because the means of coming to that conclusion are rubbish.
  6. 5. Jorginho

  7. 5. Jorginho

    That isn't logical or even a worthwhile statistic because it ignores nearly every other fundamental influence on the sport, to look at the sport in such a simple manner is reductive, pointless, and ultimately signals a lack of critical thinking. That is just cause-effect with conjecture. A player can have a good game in a loss, and a bad game in a win. A team sport is typically won and lost through the team, not one player; ergo the only bias here is coming from you. The information you've completely ignored: The other ten Chelsea players and subs The eleven opposition plus subs Formation and approach of both teams Chelsea's form Opponet's form injuries fitness 'bUt JoRgiNho PlaYs whEN teAM lOSes' is an argument you should be ashamed of.
  8. Christ almighty, I was 17 when I joined
  9. 5. Jorginho

    Imagine having a bad game occasionally.
  10. 9. Tammy Abraham

    Not too keen on this bloke, really.
  11. Chelsea Transfer Pub

    Does Onana even start for Cameroon?
  12. @Fulham Broadway did you recommend me this band about a decade ago?
  13. 20. Callum Hudson-Odoi

    This will play out in two ways; he will either be sold and win the Balon d'Or, or he won't be and will be worse than watching Anelkalouda in their prime.
  14. 5. Jorginho

    Sarriball is a stupid term.
  15. Hey Strike I don't disagree, but I think it is risky and threatening to their long terms careers if they are overplayed.
  16. Politics & Stuff

    I regret this thread.
  17. Frank Lampard

    I hope those pining for his return aren't the same as the few that lamented and damned him when he joined Manchester City.
  18. Eden Hazard

    Oh, Hazard I will miss you. I don't disagree with the move but it doesn't mean I have to approve. England is conquered, the ever consumate professional hungers for new challenges and to step out of a comfort zone is difficult and admirable.
  19. 5. Jorginho

    An amazing player, I only hope that he can continue to develope an understanding with Kante next season under whomever is the coach.
  20. Like everyone, I very much approve and enhoy Loftus-Cheek and Hudson-Odoi but to bank on them being starters with their injuries is naive. We aren't even garuanteed them returning to their best abiliites.
  21. Sarri But Not Sarri Thread

    I really doubt that. How many coaches could uproot the playing styles and locker rooms of Barcelona, Bayern, and Manchester City? If it were so easy to turn a good team into a great team, then Chelsea wouldn't sack a coach per anum. With a little research it reveals that Bayern was no easy path, they resisted Pep's changes at every turn, and made it difficult to create his own team. They supported him financially to an extent but that's it, he was battling the board for his tenure. To be marked by greatness one doesn't have to lift minnows to glory.
  22. Sarri But Not Sarri Thread

    If Juventus walked the league with Allegri they will win the league sprinting under Sarri.
  23. 20. Callum Hudson-Odoi

    I'll be surprised if Hudson-Odoi amounts to his potential given that his achilles exploded. It'd be very admirable if he recovers 100% but I will hold my breath.
  24. Eden Hazard

    Some absolutely bizarre comments in this thread.
  25. Antoine Griezmann

    AN ACTUAL PROPER WINGER. He has spent his entire career in Spain because for some reason those who work at the Clairefotaines in France hate white people or something (ask SeB). I don't know much about him but by the looks of things he actually stays out wide and hugs the touchline. It's like twenty years ago when wingers actually played on the wings. His crossing, pace and dribbling look classy. He is banned from playing for France because he went to a night club the night before training... Thoughts?
