  1. Chelsea 1-0 Swansea

    Bad finishing. Lacking final ball. They have 10 in and around the box. Ref is having a mare.The crossing from our wingbacks has been at 2013-Ashley-Cole levels bad. A combination of the above.
  2. Chelsea 1-0 Swansea

    lol where are the people who wanted us to get Renato Sanchez on loan in the summer??
  3. Chelsea 1-0 Swansea

    Can we take one of those chances, please?
  4. Liverpool 1-1 Chelsea

    Probably did enough to get more than a point, but given the Spurs result I'm content with a draw. Tbh, and I've probably been saying this for 3 seasons now, the realistic target for us is top 3/4 and challenging for the title is not really possible unless we exceed a lot of expectations and go on some amazing run.
  5. Liverpool 1-1 Chelsea

    Definitely conceding before HT if the momentum doesn't shift a bit.
  6. 22. Willian

    Where would Mata even play in this formation? My best guess would be in Cesc's place in a 3-5-2, but even there I would rather Drinkwater than him, not because he's a better player but because he fits better.
  7. 27. Andreas Christensen

    Yeah, I'd never thought I'd be advocating for Cahill to continue starting matches, but the back 3 looks very good and settled at the moment, would be insane to try and change it.
  8. 22. Willian

    Ahead of Essien and Ballack
  9. 10. Eden Hazard

    I don't think I've ever seen him more angry and less subdued after being kicked down by the opposition.....I love it!
  10. 27. Andreas Christensen

    Is it me or does Cahill look more settled and assured next to Andreas than he does next to Luiz?
  11. Politics & Stuff

    If it weren't real, it would be hilarious. Actually, it's funny either way! The rumors are that macron is there to try and get them to release Hariri (our PM). But the thing is, Hariri is a Saudi citizen (dual national) and was already mostly their puppet. He is the leader of the biggest Sunni party in Lebanon, but apparently he hasn't been extreme enough for their taste (who is??!) and has tried to distance his party too much from religious fanatics, so they took him hostage, forced him to announce his resignation and were trying to replace him with his brother who they think they can push further to the extreme. Basically, they want someone who is willing to take the country into civil war if they ask him to and Hariri was not. They actually think they can just sack our PM and replace him with his brother. I mean our democracy is flawed, but come on! This isn't the middle ages.....or 21st century Saudi Arabia!
  12. Chelsea Ladies

    Not sure where to put this as it is not directly related to our ladies team: http://www.bbc.com/sport/football/41915005?ns_mchannel=social&ns_campaign=bbc_match_of_the_day&ns_source=facebook&ns_linkname=sport But the lack of attention this whole issue has received is just appealing and speaks more than the actual racial abuse she suffered itself. And the FA should be absolutely ashamed of the way they 'handled' this.
  13. Politics & Stuff

    Saudi Arabia is holding our PM hostage (as in literally, not politically)! https://www.rt.com/news/409320-saudi-arabia-lebanon-hariri/
  14. The Board

    I do love Ray, but he does come off like an idiot! As for Jose, they never got along (I wonder whom of the two is more to blame there ) but as far as we can tell Michael always put the interest of the club ahead of this 'rivalry' as he proved when he formally asked to terminate his contract with the club in 2013 to facilitate the return of Jose. The problem is, a lot of people are worried about Granovskaia taking over his duties because they say that we need someone who's played the sport in that position instead of bureaucrat. And I can see the logic in that argument. But many of those same people were the biggest bashers and critiques when we did have an ex-professional in that role in Michael.

    Quite seriously, do the people who hate him and are happy to see him leave know why they are happy? Just to take a step back and take an overview of his role and time at the club: When he was promoted to Technical Director in 2011, we had an aging squad with an alarming player power playing a dying style of football while the club was synonymous with ridiculous over-spending in the transfer market on big names that made it virtually impossible for any youth player to break through. Over the past 6 years, we've moved steadily towards younger squads, with more flamboyant and modern style of football. The player power in the dressing room is all but gone as the Costa saga proved. We've finally reached the stage where our youth academy is actually turning a profit as we've seen this summer with Christensen, Ake and Chalobah. We've also become one of the most astute clubs in the transfer market, especially on selling players that we no longer need (so much so that opposition fans accuse us of bribing other clubs into buying our players! ). Despite the drop in our budget (relatively to the rise of prices) and our inability to compete financially with the Manchester clubs, we've still managed to steadily improve our team with FFP-compliant low net spending (even lower than Arsenal!) which has allowed us to remain the most successful team in England during these years. I know, I'm painting quite a rosy picture here, and of course there has been many mistakes and blunders, but I think it is undeniable that when looking at the overall trends the club has moved in those general directions in the right way in the past 6 years which have arguably been the most successful period in the clubs history with 2 PLs, the holy grail, a EL, the FA cup, and the league cup. Now, I'm in no way attributing all of that or any of the above solely (or even mostly) to Emenalo, but when I look at the progress and achievements of the club since 2011, I can only sincerely thank Michael for any part he played in helping us get to where we are now and wish all the best with his life after CFC.
