    Tbh for his size he is good in the air. He wins more headers than I thought, and his good sense of positioning allows him to anticipate where the ball is played and intercept it.
  2. Everton v Chelsea

    I think Fabregas and Matic deserve to retain their places. Play the same line-up as against Soton.
  3. The English Football Thread

    Maybe in an alternate universe, but not here. Neither is playing today
  4. Yannick Carrasco

    Not to mention that Neymar's ambition is to break through to the Guinness World Records in losing possession. His dribbling ability is meaningless when he loses possession around 40 times in 3 different CL games. I would never trust Neymar as much as I trust Hazard, he's a slimebag who gets too much credit for isolated moments of brilliance or meaningless flash because he's at UEFAlona. Chelsea players will always be underrated.
  5. 10. Eden Hazard

    DD, JT and Lamps all flirted with various clubs (Inter, Barcelona, Man City from the top of my head) to leverage their contracts. I don't think JT ever seriously considered leaving, but DD and Lamps have admitted that at a certain point they were considering the offers (Drogba at the beginning of his Chels career and after Jose left, Lampard after Jose left). Lampard also with that City fiasco. So even our most die-hard legends at one point weren't as loyal as we think, but because they eventually stayed and went on to cement their legendary status further, we ignore that fact.

    Yup, and it doesn't matter what browser I'm using. If I change a page in a thread, the posts won't load and will only load after refreshing the page.
  7. 26. John Terry

    Be a good sport and send me the link. Can't find it myself. Btw, Red-faced John Terry is forced to tell his mother she'd been mistaken for a prostitute performing a sex act in a cruel internet hoax watched around the world
  8. 22. Willian

    Give them nothing! Are we really gonna sell both Mata and Willian to United? No way, that can't happen. It would be an underwhelming signing for them too, considering the players they are linked with. I really hope Willian accepts not playing every game and stays here beyond this season, a very useful option to have.
  9. Tammy Abraham

    They really are in love with him, calling him a legend already. Oh, my god. If this happens there will be lots and lots of fully-grown men struggling to keep it together in the stands. Tammy Abraham, BCFC legend in 1 season

  11. Chelsea 4-2 Southampton

    Okay, might be the new sound hack I started using on my PC then.

    Somebody PM me the video please, I don't know anything about twitter.
  13. 21. Nemanja Matic

    I respect your opinion that Matic stays in starting xi. And you also cleared up that you have nothing against Conte bringing in a prospect, okay. But the options from our current squad you mentioned... Not good enough for PL, CL and cups. So we do need a midfielder who can play Nemanja's role, either as backup or starter, that's up to Conte and the players to battle it out among themselves. Sent from my Nexus 5X using Tapatalk
  14. 21. Nemanja Matic

    Ok I'll explain. BlueLyon proposed that we need an additonal midfielder while keeping Matic, you rejected the idea by saying that this very same squad can go on to do great things beyond this season. In 2015 we won the league, the following summer we didn't strengthen except for Pedro. Finished 10th. Not to mention seasons further in the past where we refused to upgrade our squad that used to win things, but struggled in later years. Mourinho or somebody said that if you don't bring in new blood every year, the squad becomes stale and too comfortable. I didn't say anything about kicking Matic out, neither did BlueLyon. You didn't answer. If we keep this same squad next year, who replaces Matic when he is out for months? We've been lucky this year, he has always been available, but we have seen what happens when you take away one or two key players from our starting XI.

    You shouldn't care if the ref doesn't (did he notice?).
  16. General Transfer Talk

    I like your posts man. You say what I think but you express it much better.
  17. 6. Nathan Aké

    They are the furthest thing away from a sweeper, in fact they are anti-sweepers because they proactively close down their zones. If anyone, then Luiz is playing the sweeper role as the deepest of the lot.
  18. 21. Nemanja Matic

    Not sure what you're talking about. I didn't say kick out Matic. See the part you quoted from @BlueLyon post and I replied to what you replied to his quote. This is what he wrote: " His role is certainly still important, so I would definately keep him next season. But we NEED to buy another quality midfielder. " You of course conveniently left out the part where he said he would keep Matic so you could troll with your fake love for the man. If you don't think we need another quality midfielder then fair enough. If you don't think we need any new players and that this team can sustain success for years to come then you're fucking stupid. Tell me this, if your beloved Matic gets a lengthy injury who replaces him? Chalobah?
  19. 19. Diego Costa

    He has always been sloppy even during his purple patches. His acceleration is bad and his touch often heavy, but when he plays smartly, participates in build-up and scores I have no complaints. Yesterday was the Diego I want to see week in week out. And he scored with his head! Super well done.
  20. 6. Nathan Aké

    Selling Ake would be stupid imo, or sending on loan for that matter. We need a larger squad next season, we will also lose some HG players (JT, Bego at least). Ake is a player who can play in different positions and he has the quality to be a rotational option. Unless he wants to go, sending him away voluntarily would be a dumb move from the club imo.
  21. Chelsea 4-2 Southampton

    What about the home support in this game? Watching on a stream it sounded LOUD. Antonio's plea about needing the 12th man seems to have hit home. Thoughts from match-goers, was the atmosphere better than usual? I especially laughed at the constant shouts at Matic to SHOOOOT from all sorts of random positions Wonder how much it fucks with the player's head..
  22. 21. Nemanja Matic

    2014/15 vs. 2015/16. Who doesn't learn from the past is bound to repeat it in the future.
  23. Chelsea 4-2 Southampton

    Fucking massive win. Costa was on fire today! And so happy to see JT on the pitch again.

    @Leif Can somebody be a goalscorer AND a creator?
