  1. Huddersfield - Chelsea

    2 now. Let's get keep it this (at least) and get Hazard off early.
  2. Huddersfield - Chelsea

    looks like it might be an OG
  3. The English Football Thread

    I'm happy to know that Liverpool supporters are irate about the result, but I have no love for these types of interviews from Sky (or whoever). They try to stir up some shit then act all innocent when confronted in return. They are actively trying to goad some sort of talking point for their next headline. Wish more managers would respond like Klopp.
  4. West Ham 1-0 Chelsea

    Thought it was a mistake to start with 352. But, today showed us why it's important to get the first goal. West Ham gave us no space. The whole box was claret and blue. We were't sharp enough to break through.
  5. West Ham 1-0 Chelsea

    You may want to edit that typo.... I'm of course, giving you the benefit of the doubt and assuming that's not what you really mean
  6. Alex Sandro

    Piss off Man U, we were here first. Don't know if they are actually interested, or if it's just a way of driving the price up.
  7. 3. Marcos Alonso

    Pretty good in the air and would be able to swing in the Azpi-style crosses from the LCB position as well. Either way, good squad player to have, but we desperately need another LWB.
  8. Chelsea 1-1 Atletico Madrid

    We're definitely going to get PSG. Also, no more Zapp at LWB, please.
  9. 10. Eden Hazard

    Neymar was 220 last summer. Fees are going up. Hazard is 250
  10. The Board

    I don't know how much Marina knows about football (because her background is business, not football, not because she's a woman). I know that deals take forever to get done, but I can't really argue with the fees we pay and receive. 60M for Oscar 60M for Costa who had burned his bridges and made it clear he was only going to one place.
  11. 9. Álvaro Morata

  12. 9. Álvaro Morata

    People say that they'd rather have Lukaku leading a counter attack?
  13. The Board

    This is shocking news. I wonder what it was that actually made this happen.
  14. Chelsea 1-0 Man Utd

    This could have been a very different result if Lukaku had been playing.
  15. Chelsea 1-0 Man Utd

    On the surface, it doesn't look like we're going to get anything out of this match. However, that's when we seem to always show up, when no one (including our supporters) thinks we have a chance.
  16. Charly Musonda Jr.

    I suppose. Getting sacked from Chelsea is no big deal. It's not like it's a blemish on your record, it's almost a right of passage. I do think that manager's still don't want to be sacked (even if it ultimately doesn't matter), but win now and playing the youth don't really mix very well. Not many get that balance right.
  17. The Conte Thread

    Apparently, he knows how to circumvent 3rd party ownership.
  18. Charly Musonda Jr.

    It's because they can't risk it. Don't win, get sacked.
  19. The Conte Thread

    Klopp gets a free pass because the press is full of ex-Liverpool players. Mourinho was right about that. If you go to the Guardian site, what would be a small story having to do with Liverpool down at the bottom of the page, is front and centre on the Sky site. I actually like Klopp and his personality, but it feels like they would need to be in a relegation battle before the knives came out in the media.
  20. 22. Willian

    He was so direct when he came on against Watford. Didn't stop the ball and play with it for 30 seconds while everyone just stands around, like usual. Got the ball, looked to play in a cross or pass to a team mate. Would love to see that more often.
  21. The Conte Thread

    The squad looks knackered. This is going to be a long season, I think.
  22. The Conte Thread

    I thought we were pretty terrible, toss up as to which match was worse, IMO.
  23. The Conte Thread

    I know that performance against City was terrible, but I think that the mid-week match had a huge toll. It was the toughest test of the group and we were brilliant. They worked their socks off in that match. Then, they returned on Thursday morning and match Saturday. We had our moments early, but after Morata went off, I figure Conte would be happy with a point, and maybe try to steal all 3 on the counter with Willian and Hazard. Didn't work, obviously. I thought that this was a pretty good analysis of the match:
  24. Chelsea 0-1 Man City

    One positive of this match is that Christiansen has been very good. These are the best opponents I've seen him against and he's possibly been our best player.
  25. Chelsea 0-1 Man City

    City are also doing their best to spoil any counter attack opportunities. Come in hard and foul if you get beat.
