  2. Southampton - Chelsea

    You kinda insinuated that in your initial reply to Thor. Besides, if you really didn't mean to discredit him, you could have mentioned it from the start.

  5. 18. Olivier Giroud

  6. 9. Álvaro Morata

    Did you see us fans disrespect Ashley Cole?
  7. 18. Olivier Giroud

    What are the odds that people make a 180 turn on Giroud in say 12 months' time?
  8. Southampton - Chelsea

    Look, I don't disagree that he needs to improve on his finishing (and fast!) and just like you and everyone else, I've been frustrated with him but at the end of the day, a goal is a goal. Discrediting the player for scoring and just to suit an agenda is very petty. If we're gonna start doing that, then we might as well start doing for others as well.
  9. 9. Álvaro Morata

    Morata is not going to win, is he? Doesn't score goals, people moan. Scores goals, people also moan.
  10. Swansea v Chelsea

    If we had beaten Spurs and West Ham, we would be sitting in the top 4 right now!
  11. 33. Emerson Palmieri

  12. Who will be the next Chelsea manager?

    Sarri just upstaged Allegri in the top of the table clash.
  13. Southampton - Chelsea

    Maybe but discrediting Morata's goal just because he came on against tiring legs is silly.
  14. 7. N'Golo Kante

    Didn't realize he's already 27! Anyway, he should win the POTY - not the club's - on the fact that he's having to do a 2-man's job all season!
  15. The Conte Thread

    Where has the Conte in the last 2 games come from? Looked miserable for most of 2018 but was definitely back in the game in the last 3-4 days. Surprised everyone by going 2 strikers up top at Burnley and it worked and his mid-game changes against Southampton today was quick, decisive and spot on.
  16. The English Football Thread

    Yup, he did. Think Guardiola made a similar complaint some years back? Said the grass was too long or something like that.
  17. 4. Cesc Fàbregas

    Am continue to be flabbergasted by Fabregas (excuse the near-pun there ). Offers nothing in attack these days and is absolutely useless in defensive situations. How can Conte tolerate the fact that he just jogs back every single time when we have to defend? Doesn't even look bothered to put in the effort to intercept, block!
  18. Southampton - Chelsea

    I get what you're saying but aren't we all getting a little picky now with these trivial explanations as to why Morata or whoever else get their goal? In the same vain, one could argue that Giroud got his goals against Southampton last weekend because they sat so deep and started panicking when the pressure was really on them.
  19. 9. Álvaro Morata

    Finishing with his feet still needs work/time obviously but am just happy that he scored.
  20. Southampton - Chelsea

    If there's one thing that annoys me about them is their tendency to overplay the backheels and 1-2s. Sometimes, it looks as they want to do so for the sake of it rather than just make effective, more efficient plays.
  21. Southampton - Chelsea

    Biggest question is - who's gonna park the bigger bus?
  22. 22. Willian

    Willian was confirmed as a Chelsea player on 28 August, for a fee in the region of £32m, after Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich had reportedly contacted fellow Russian billionaire Kerimov personally. Clearly happy with the late change of destination, the Brazilian international commented "I'm very happy to be here, it's been a dream of mine to come and play here. Chelsea are one of the best clubs in the world, and now I'm going to play for one of the best managers in the world, so I'm very happy and looking forward to it." Willian made his Chelsea debut as a substitute in a shock home loss against FC Basel, and made his full debut for the club in a League Cup win against Swindon Town the following week. He scored his first goal for Chelsea on his Premier League debut, a sublime long-range effort against Norwich City that clinched a 3-1 win for the Blues in early October. Having been eased into the Chelsea side by José Mourinho, by December Willian had established himself as a regular starter along side Oscar and Eden Hazard in the triumverate of attacking midfielders behind the striker. By the turn of the year he was consistently demonstrating his skill in attacking areas and his notable workrate was no doubt a factor in Mourinho's evident faith in the Brazilian. He scored his second goal for the club against Southampton on New Year's Day. Reflecting on his move to Chelsea in January 2014 he told the FIFA website I kept an eye on Chelseas fortunes after they first tried to sign me. I developed a bit of a soft spot for the club. The problem was that Shakhtar didnt want to let me go. And then Anzhi came in and met my release clause fee, he explained. But that made my desire to play for Chelsea all the stronger. It took a while, but now Im here, and I couldnt be happier. Click here to view the record

  24. The English Football Thread

    But what's the point if he doesn't breed winning mentality by constantly playing down the importance of winning trophies - even if it's the League Cup or FA Cup?
