  1. Chelsea 3-1 Crystal Palace

    Zaha to have his usual god-like performance against us, then do fuck all until Christmas.
  2. 17. Mateo Kovacic

    100% agree with this assessment. I like Mateo, but I won't be overly worried if we don't retain him.
  3. 8. Ross Barkley

    Got to be honest, and this is no indictment of Kovacic, but I'm not really that bothered if Mateo stays at Real beyond this season, because Ross can do his job - and arguably, he's better at it. Yes, I know they are different players with different skill sets, and yes, they offer different things... but I think Barkley is more suited to the style of play Sarri wants to see. Kovacic is great at carrying the ball and creating space for others with his movement, but this is something Loftus-Cheek offers, too. Ross is just different to the other CMs we have at the club.
  4. Chelsea 3-2 Derby County

    Don't underestimate Derby. I've been to see them play three times this season, most recently at West Brom on Wednesday night. They were absolutely brilliant, pressing up from the back and limiting time on the ball for the opposition. We will have to be careful not to play too weakened a team, because this is a potential banana skin and a half for us.
  5. 8. Ross Barkley

    Quality, again. Great signing.
  6. Thibaut Courtois

    La serpiente
  7. 31. Robert Green

    Already a bigger legend than Courtois.
  8. Chelsea 0-0 Lyon

    Not injured, just shit.
  9. Inter Milan 1-1 Chelsea

    I haven't watched the game, not seen any highlights at all - I was seeing Bastille last night. Can someone summarise the performance? Any stand-out players, both positive and negative?
  10. Aleksandr Golovin

    I'd quite happily say Jorginho-Kante is the best CM pairing in the league. It's about time we gave RLC a chance; Bakayoko will also improve, Fabregas can still do a job there, and Barkley looks fit and powerful.
  11. Aleksandr Golovin

    Disappointing, however midfield is the area we don't really need to worry about too much. We have umpteen options across the midfield three.
  12. Pepe Reina

    Reina is an outstanding keeper, you are an idiot if you think otherwise. Many people here probably still remember his error-prone final seasons with Liverpool as opposed to his level when he first joined the PL, when he was second only to Cech as the league's outstanding goalkeeper. In his time at Napoli, he has reached those levels again and would not be a horrendous short-term fix, however I would prefer for us to look at a younger goalkeeper that can become a long-term option, somebody like Donnarumma or Areola. However, if we really want a short-term fix, I am astonished we haven't raided Ligue 1 for the likes of Ruffier, Costil, Anthony Lopes, etc.
  13. Mason Mount

    My mate is a Derby fan and said Mason was sensational against Southampton at the weekend. I actually went to Nuneaton last night to watch Coventry vs Derby in a pre-season friendly. Mason played the second half and looked really assured in midfield, I was also impressed by his confidence to try some tricks and flicks. Many came off, some didn't. He performed well, I think he'll learn a lot from Lampard. Lampard actually spoke to him 1-to-1 for a prolonged period during the interval.
  14. 31. Robert Green

    He won't ever play for the first team, barring a catastrophe, and helps fulfil the homegrown quota. A necessary signing, in that sense - yes, we could have kept Blackman or promoted Bulka, but they will benefit from loans rather than being 3rd choice.
  15. Chelsea Kits 2018/19

    I'm concerned that we don't have a goalkeeper kit yet.
