    Player. Of. The. Season. If you disagree, you're wrong, sorry
  2. Goal of the Season 2016/17

    Pedro vs Everton, simply for the sheer significance of it.
  3. Rank PL Title Win

    This season, because nobody expected it. The previous four were of course satisfying, but we were red-hot favourites from the first whistle. This year we've proved so many people wrong - myself included. After the 3-0 at Arsenal, I thought we'd struggle for top four and Conte would have gotten sacked by now. How happy I am to be proved wrong.
  4. Chelsea Kits 2016/17

    Have you ever been to Stoke? Can't blame him.
  5. The Mourinho Thread

    They're going on about their 25-game unbeaten streak (of which 12/13 were draws, I think?) as if they've repeated the Gooner 49ers.
  6. West Brom 0-1 Chelsea

    Ah, West Bayern Atletico, the team that plays like Brazil 1970 against us.
  7. Chelsea 3-0 Middlesbrough

    Okay, thanks for informing me about which things I do and do not know.
  8. Chelsea 3-0 Middlesbrough

    Just seen this post on a Yids forum, and totally agree with it:
  9. 21. Nemanja Matic

    He was great in the final 15 minutes - when Everton had thrown in the towel.
  10. The English Football Thread

    Got to give Spurs a lot of credit. You'd have though they'd have given up by now.
  11. 19. Diego Costa

    Wow, what a battling performance yesterday. Not at his absolute best, but signs his confidence is returning rapidly. Nothing outstanding, but a far cry from his recent form. That turn on Williams on the half-way line was reminiscent of the turn against Otamendi (I think?) when we did City 3-1 at the Emptyhad. Unfortunate with his one big chance, the ball just wouldn't come down quickly enough, but his hold-up play put Lukaku to shame. His involvement in Willian's goal was superb, what fantastic off-the-ball movement and a slick little inside pass to get Fabregas through into the box. Returning to form at the right time!
  12. Title race

    I'm still feeling really pessimistic at this stage! I just recall the 2013/14 season - if you looked at our home games remaining by this stage of the season, Norwich and Sunderland, you'd have banked on us picking up six points in those games. Boro were absolutely excellent yesterday against City. I suppose one thing in our favour is that they have to win, perhaps even more so than ourselves, which might invite them to attack a little more. A draw doesn't really do them much good, so I can't envisage them parking the bus completely. Sure, they'll be defensive and look to exploit us on counters and capitalise on set pieces, but this will be a tougher game than most people anticipate. Sunderland might already be relegated but they'll be looking to play for pride and finish the season on a high. The one team I don't have any anxieties about whatsoever is Watford - their season has been over for weeks; they literally have nothing left to play for and might as well all be on the beach. Plus, they have a horrible record on Monday nights, so we have an advantage there, too. West Brom away could be tricky, but I don't think they can now mathematically finish any higher than they are currently placed, so I'm hoping a few of their players are mentally already on their holidays! The bottom line is this: all four games are very win-able, however, I am certain we will drop points at some stage. That notwithstanding, nine points mathematically seals us the title regardless of how well Spurs play between now and the end of the season. I would be massively impressed if they went on to win all of their remaining games, since only one of them is at home (and that being against United, who have an incredible record at White Hart Lane), but with them playing before us the next couple of games, they have the advantage to really crank up the pressure. For certain, we are huge favourites, as on paper we should steam-roller each of the four teams we're up against. The only issue is shit teams tend to channel their inner Atletico Madrid against us and make it almost impossible for us to play our style of football. I'm predicting four tense, tight, and incredibly nervy games between now and the end of the season.
  13. Title race

    Massive. Psychological. Blow.
  14. 22. Willian

    He hates Tottenham.
  15. 21. Nemanja Matic

    Great goal, but still bang average.
