  1. Stoke 1-2 Chelsea

    Points to Ponder: 1) We were on top from the very beginning, and fully deserved the win. Stats back that 2) I think we have the best manager in the world. Look how he has changed Mosses, David Luiz, Hazard, etc etc etc. His tactics and the way he introduces substitutions, switching Fabregas and Matic based on opponents the man is genius 3) Ngolo Kante, say no more..........give him 10 year deal. 4) We are going to finish the job very early, and will have 4 games to spare to give all the youngsters a chance. Boy that lad RLC can be moulded into a superstar, if anyone can do that Conte is the man. 5) I honestly believe that next year we just need to buy Sanchez and replacement for Costa if he goes. With Christensen coming and Zouma improving each game our defence looks solid except Cahill has to move to the bench
  2. Stoke 1-2 Chelsea

    Any idea who the two doubtful players besides Mosses that Conte was talking about. Hope its not Hazard or Kante
  3. When will we clinch the title? With Man city drawing today we are 10 points clear and we are looking very comfortable to extend the lead to 13 points very soon. With 11 games to go the title is as good as ours. With a reasonable easy fixture list, I believe our Home game against Southampton on April 23rd will be when we clinch the title. Curious what other Chelsea fans think?
  4. Chelsea 3-1 Swansea

    I cannot agree more. Fabs is a game changer and this is a game we should be looking to press from onset. The rest of the team can be the same.
  5. Chelsea 2-0 Hull

    My team Thibout Azpi David Luiz Zouma Mosses Kante Cesc Alonso Pedro Costa Hazard I am predicting Costa will be fired up and score a hatrick
  6. Chelsea v Spurs

    Absolutely Hilarious
  7. Chelsea 4-0 Man United

    Completely agree. He is the perfect match for that position in our new 5-3-3 system. Him and Alonso on either side are fantastic. We were getting burnt by pace before. Of course I am ecstatic, however Luiz and Cahill still look a little suspect.
  8. Swansea 2-2 Chelsea

    Very nice and sensible post. I concur we did everything right and it was just down to bad luck. I suppose it makes up for the good luck we had against West Ham and Watford. I am still not convinced using Matic over Fabregas, especially against the bottom half teams. Hope we win on Friday, its a massive game.
  9. Chelsea v Newcastle

    Our Results sequence in all competitions since Gus Hiddink Took Over: WDDWWDDWWDD Based on this we should win against Newcastle and PSG …………. I will take that anytime
  10. Chelsea v Newcastle

    I hope Mikel and Matic do not even make the bench. Pathetic crap players who provide no thrust and slow the game down. Enough is enough and I think fans should protest if these two start. Also we should play assuming we are 2-0 down from the beginning. The best football Chelsea has played this year is when they have fallen behind. My team Thibout Azpi Ivanovich JT Baba Oscar Cesc Willian RLC Hazard Costa Oscar and Azpi are right footed players who should play on right. Also once we reach 40 points we must give chance to youth. Let Kennedy, Traore and RLC play every game
  11. Chelsea v Man United

    We need to win this game to restore pride and confidence for Champions League, which is the faintest hope of qualifying for CL. What frustrates me most this entire season is who is making the decision to play Ivanovich and Matic every game. These two have not performed and it is about time common sense prevailed and give some new players chance. That said I would go for: Thibout Azpi Zouma Terry Baba Oscar Fabregas Willian RLC Hazard Costa Definitely bring on Kennedy and Traore at some stage
  12. Watford 0-0 Chelsea

    My assessment of the match: 1) Matic has declined so much that he should be sold this summer. He has no vision, poor passing skills and above all no desire any more. 2) The debate about Mikel will continue forever. The man can defend well but utterly useless going forward. No vision, no passing skills and slows our attack. 3) Hidink needs to balance the team. Azpiu and Oscar are right footed players who should not play on left. 4) Kurt Zouma is still not finished article. He needs another year or so before he is a regular. We must hold on to him though. 5) I hoestly believe that Ighalo is better than Costa for the same role. Costa is a bit overwight and tends to loose balance. We should sign Igahlo. 6) We have definitely improved since Jose left, but not enough to win a trophy. Next year will require major changes. Definitely no Europa Cup next year forget Champions league and justifiably so.
  13. Leicester 2-1 Chelsea

    Even if he scored three after coming on, Costa would still start next game.
  14. Leicester 2-1 Chelsea

    Gutted with the result. Our air now is to reach 40 points and avoid relegation and hopefully win FA cup to qualify for Europa Cup. Definitely cannot see us winning against PSG let alone winning Champions League. That said, once we reach 40 points we have to give some youngsters a chance and overhaul the squad. Back to Todays game: 1) Every team has figured out to give ample space to Ivanovich to go forward, because he will create nothing and waste time as well expose the defence. I have not seen a single good cross from him in the last few games 2) Costa has had enough of EPL and should be let go even in January. He has simply lost his touch. 3) We did play some good football in the last 35 minutes. Perhaps we should us that system from the start. 4) Costa, Matic, Ivanovich, Oscar are just not cutting it any more. Might as well not start with them any more 5) Azpilicueta had an uncharacteristic bad game today. He is still one of our consistent performer. 6) I would still give Jose one more year, I still believe in him and he can turn it around next year. Chelsea's aim now is to stay out of relegation zone for the rest of the season. Never ever imagined I would say that.
  15. Chelsea 2-0 Porto

    I thought Brana had a decent game today.
