  1. 23. Michy Batshuayi

    The concept of 'super sub' seems to sugarcoat the fact a player can't start games & see them out. Which should be the basic, absolute minimum for any pro player. There's no glory or use in super subs. Every player should be good enough for a starting position.
  2. 6. Danny Drinkwater

    I think he'll be a damn Leicester City level player.
  3. 14. Tiemoue Bakayoko

    Do you think the board were into Bakayoko before Monaco's last season? I doubt it. I think they just threw money at a flavour of the month.
  4. Chelsea - Watford

    Heh, thank you. It's kinda like knowing your little brother's going to be in a fight & you're already resigned to him losing, so there shouldn't be any unexpected stress. You're worried, but stable. But, when you actually see your little brother get hit in the face, the heart goes crazy, and the brain goes out the window. This is what love is. Absolutely scary & dangerous
  5. Chelsea - Watford

    For perspective on the damage this club does to its supporters - I had heart surgery a few days ago, I think the day before the Roma game. I went into the surgery fine, came out of it fine. Slept fine. Woke up the next day, fine. Chelsea game that evening? Great way to spend the final night in hospital. Game comes on. My stupid self gets stressed at the scoreline. I overthink and get riled up, too excited about football and all the possibilities for our immediate future. They come in to check my blood pressure for the 20th time (but only the 1st time since the game ended) - and for the first time of my stay, it's a worryingly high blood pressure. The surgeon comes to my room 2 hours later just to see how I am, after hearing I'm not as stable. He finds that my left chest had filled with blood, and had a slight clot, due to emotional distress overworking the heart in a delicate time. I get whooshed back into surgery, have the blood sucked out, told I could've died, and it was all because of god damn Chelsea. (To an extent).

    put beautifully. almost Shakespearean.
  7. The Conte Thread

    Roman's the Wenger of owners, straight up. Stop blaming everyone except the damn boss! Every season the man who should always be ultimately responsible goes untouched! Just like having a rich dad who has no concept of bonding, only of neglect
  8. The Conte Thread

    Romaaaan, wherever you may be, you are no longerrr CFC
  9. 13. Thibaut Courtois

    How can he be praised when every Atletico game he was 9/10, and every game here anywhere between 6 & 9? I don't study goalkeepers, I don't know who is better these days , but if Courtois is the best or even top 3 then a head stone needs placed wherever the first official game was played. The lack of consistency in his commitment emphasizes that as a squad and board, professional mentalities are now rare at Chelsea. We might have 4 adults in our squad.
  10. The Board

    Yes. This club is genuinely pathetic compared to its peers, but we'd be pathetic if we left, so, lovely, we're fucked. Imagine being the only top club without a renowned technical director who consistently signs players who fit what's already there. They all have it. Both Madrid teams, both Manchester teams, both Arsenal and Tottenham, both even Roma now and Sevilla still (Monchi effect.) Other clubs lose managers but, when they do, they at least still have the very best football men still around throughout it all. Thinking about how much passion is on the boards of Juventus and Barcelona are sobering.
  11. The Conte Thread

    Rename topic as the CantHe thread
  12. 14. Tiemoue Bakayoko

    You see. A fraud, with a professional attitude no better than Bats and nowhere near Fabinho.
  13. The Conte Thread

    Nobody comes to mind, but if there's anyone 'technically' or tactically better than Conte, they no doubt have less titles + experience. All the other managers with relative titles + experience are either really old and employ boring, yesteryear football, or, are Guardiola.
  14. 10. Eden Hazard

    He wasn't good, and that's being said after the game. Good. But the idea along the lines of, 'How come Hazard always escapes fire when we play shit!?!?!?' is stupid. If a player is generally your best player for 7 or 8 out of 10 games, you don't give him the same smacking as the players who go missing 8 out of 10 games, do you? Why would you do that? It isn't 'fair'.
