    Jeez,...you'd think during a lockdown with no football, there would be no drama. But NO, this is Chelsea
  2. Chelsea's Transfer Targets

    I wouldn't call anyone of them mediocre..but I do worry about Pulisic's ability to last an entire season without some kind of injury problem. In our title winning campaigns, our best players, be it Lampard or Drogba or Hazard, barely missed games.
  3. Aston Villa v Chelsea

    Highly doubt it will be cancelled. Most likely they will push it out even further if situation worsens. If season is voided as it stands, then nothing counts. They will use last seasons standings. Interesting to see if Arsenal would get a CL spot over City if that happens, and City is unsuccessful in their CAS appeal. If season continues really late, not sure what is going to happen with players who are out of contract in June (looking at our front 3 including Willian)
  4. Aston Villa v Chelsea

    Now, there is talk of all remaining PL games being played behind closed doors The Times is claiming that a plan could be pit in place as early as this week.
  5. Bayern Munich v Chelsea

    Just stupidity. Just like that 'no handshake' rule for the players in the PL games. Was that just meant to send a message to the public? Because later on in the match, the players were just grappling with each other during corners and butting heads. Flu > more deadly than Covid. But everyone loses their minds over the latter.
  6. Bayern Munich v Chelsea

    Another match to be impacted by Covid looks like. Behind closed doors, based on the latest reports.
  7. The English Football Thread

    We can't keep looking back at teams behind us. Too many for close comfort Our aim right now should be to overtake Leicester.
  8. Super Frank Thread

    You know that cliched saying, "it doesnt matter how many you concede as long as you outscore the opposition"? I really think it holds true for the type of football Lampard is trying to play. We look good in Tottenham and Liverpool games because we thankfully converted our chances early on and rubber stamped out control on the match. Can guarantee that if we had last seasons Hazard and RLC in the team, we would be far above where Leicester is in the table right now.
  9. 29. Fikayo Tomori

    He was originally stenciled in to go on loan again this season, but Luiz's departure forced Lampard's hand. In hindsight, I'm glad Tomori stayed, as he has been instrumental in games in the early part of the season. But next season, I think he needs to go out on loan to further develop. And Chelsea NEEDS to bring in not just a good defender, but a new LEADER for shoring up that back line.
  10. Bournemouth 2-2 Chelsea

    This season is an oddity in terms of injuries. Overall, I think we are far better than most clubs (looking at Arsenal) You can also look across to Madrid, at Eden Hazard, who has missed as many games for Madrid this season, as he has for his entire 7 year stint with Chelsea.
  11. Chelsea 2-1 Spurs

    It looked bizarre from the beginning. You can see Michael Oliver knew he was partaking in a lie. He could have easily gone over to the pitch side monitors and taken a look himself. I can bet he was being told to do otherwise on his intercom.
  12. Chelsea 2-1 Spurs

    You can't tell me there is no rigging going on with this VAR system. How can they overlook a clear and obvious foul, and actually have the gall to say they were wrong 20 mins later in the same match. Are they going to retroactively ban him? They didn't WANT a Spurs player sent off, and risk having a one sided game.
  13. Chelsea 0-2 Man Utd

    Haha, I can totally relate. My first day at the Bridge also ended up with a rather ignominious defeat for the Chels, but to me the result was nothing more than a bonus. Nothing can take away the sheer joy of being there in person for the very first time. Truly special.
  14. Chelsea 0-2 Man Utd

    If I had to pick one thing to disagree with Lampard, its this. Dropping the no.1 goalkeeper to prove a point is thing, but you don't shoot yourself in the foot for it. Cabellero is NOWHERE near the quality of GK needed to start regularly. I would pick him for penalty shoot outs and that's about it. Lampard hasn't exactly been vindicated in terms of results after dropping Kepa, and has potentially created an unsavory situation. It remains to be seen if he will eat humble pie and reinstate Kepa for the next game. Or if he will continue his 'Cabellero experiment' just to show it works.
  15. The English Football Thread

    On the bright side, Arsenal will no longer be 'The only unbeaten team in the PL'
  16. 7. N'Golo Kante

    IMO, he was invisible in attack, and I think he was just as useless as everyone else in midfield in terms of defense, especially in that 2nd half. No one was pressing, and we were giving Leicester easy forays into that final third. They carved us open time and again every time they went up the pitch. This wasn't the typical lung bursting performance we've seen from Kante.
  17. Super Frank Thread

    Believe me, I wasn't defending Lampard with that statement. No one is blameless here.
  18. 7. N'Golo Kante

    He's probably not the only one, but boy was Kante invisible today. He was just not into the game at all. Did barely anything all game.
  19. Super Frank Thread

    Feels like today's team selection and subs were a massive middle finger to the Chelsea hierarchy sitting in the stands at the game today.
  20. Chelsea Kits thread

    https://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/football/article-7925249/Chelsea-agree-new-shirt-sponsorship-deal-mobile-phone-network-Three.html New shirt sponsorship deal signed. Concerned about how that big logo is going to look like
  21. Chelsea's Transfer Targets

    We could ask Cech to return to the pitch for the next few months, lol.
  22. 9. Tammy Abraham

    Yeah, I agree there will be more scrutiny here. Although, I feel the scrutiny is a lot more intense now because there is no supporting act in terms of goals. When Mount was scoring, and when Pulisic was in good form, there was less reliance on Tammy's goals.
  23. 9. Tammy Abraham

    But you cant really compare the two, can you? Torres had a big reputation coming into Chelsea, and was at the age where he should have been in his prime, and was meant to displace Drogba and Anelka who were still at the club. Tammy's role is to make up for the goal threat we lost with Hazard, and to a lesser extent, Ruben Loftus Cheek, when he became injured. Yesterday, besides the two goals he was involved in, he also had a couple of headers on target (or at least one on target). Far from a bad contribution. He is young and not yet the finished product. That being said, I think we need someone with better nous and ruthlessness to come off the bench to lend him a hand during games where he struggles. If wages are acceptable, someone like Cavani would be ideal
  24. 9. Tammy Abraham

    Best not bring up that Tammy was the reason why we even got a lead and Arsenal a man down. When we lose, every player comes under fire in this forum. So no surprise
