  1. Crystal Palace v Chelsea

    It’s crucial that we move above Leicester and Utd at some point. As both play each other on the last day we then would make sure that if we fail to win vs Pool or Wolves we don’t fall behind both. We need to have 2 points on Leicester and Utd otherwise if we lose to wolves or pool they might end up colluding for a draw which in case of a single point advantage will see both above us due to GD

    The shop is certified by EHI and TÜV. It is most probably not a scam. (You can always check Ust-iD in the Impressum and look for it in Handelsregister)I dont know if they are any good in service or delivery tho. maybe check out Notebooksbilliger.de. i bought the last toshiba satellite pro there for like 100€ under market price.

    An IQ of above 130 places one in the 98% percentile, so not such a rare genius. The article explicitly states that there was a company doing iq tests with the squad at the training groudn and Lampard reached a score of 150+. Nothing to do with his GCSEs. They were just anecdotally added. Also, there are plenty of corresponding reports on said incidents of the tests taken at Cobham so I have no reason to doubt that Lampard indeed had such a remarkable result on that particular test. Further I think IQ tests project an anachronistic and limited spectrum of intelligence. Most are based on pattern recognition. But often enough the person designing the test is subject to follow a subconscious pattern by doing so. This pattern could be a lot simpler than the one being asked for in the test. Consequently a person who is just experienced in doing such tests will find them much easier. For example, for my first job interview all applicants had to complete an IQ test with all kinds of matrices, graphics, word sequences etc, typical IQ test BS. Because I used to do them for fun as a kid, i had no problems solving the whole test easily in time while all others struggled. So, I got the job. A friend of mine, one of the most intelligent people I know who now works as a computer scientist at a famous venture capital firm applied for the same job a few months later and somehow failed badly. Consequently he was eliminated in the first round. Simultaneously a few absolute dumbwits who had less problems with the tests were hired. In the end, maybe the most accurate test of intelligence is how much value someone attributes to these IQ tests.

    tbf the guy (Maatsen?) he is showing up looks like a 15 y.o.
  5. 15. Kurt Zouma

    Has to play vs Palace. Their strikers, Benteke and Wickham are exactly the kind of challenge he relishes.Especially Benteke has the exact same height and build as Kurt with those huge legs, wide and strong core but relatively light arm/shoulder region which gives them more agility when they have to move the upper body for challenges in the air and keeping balance after a change of direction. One reason why Cahill always looks so suspect when people run towards him is that he is the antithesis to Zouma with weaker core and legs and lots of needless muscle mass on his upper body which makes him top heavy and clumsy on the turn.
  6. 28. César Azpilicueta

    Good for us. It will surely prolong his career. Also Carvajal plays over him bc he is at RM. everyone can see Azpi is the better defender
  7. Crystal Palace v Chelsea

    Who has had 0 minutes? Watford and Leicester were perfect opportunities for Jorginho to get some match fitness yet Lamps played billy over him who made an absolute meal of it. I am quite sure Billy will start and he better get it right this time.
  8. Juan Castillo

    Really. If that video is anything to go by, he is a very limited player. If Masten or him were any good they would be in the squad given how Lamps rightly distrusts both Alonso and Emerson

    lol the ref disposessed the Villareal player there with an attempted McGeady spin
  10. Crystal Palace v Chelsea

    Lampard managed Pulisic perfectly. He did not have a summer break and was near burnt out. Lampard gave him a bit of time to acclimatize and is now reaping the rewards. Wins are all that matters now. I could not care less if Lampard does not include Jorginho for the rest of the season as long as we finish top 4.
  11. 22. Christian Pulisic

    Actually penalties won count as assists
  12. 22. Christian Pulisic

    He ain’t as robust as hazard but he is even quicker and also works hard against the ball. Great defensive shift from him today. Superb attitude.
  13. 5. Jorginho

    Yeah but we don't have anyone near that level in midfield to play in front of him. this would mean he can never play to his full potential for us. Tbh i see more of jorginho in him, playing simple passes quickly between the lines and controlling the tempo. he has not really shown the vision and long range passing ability of Pirlo.
  14. 28. César Azpilicueta

    a defensive masterclass in how to control a pacy winger. Just dont give him an acre of space before he controls him and give him no room to run at after he has controlled it. Sarr had one chance to run at azpi and did not even dare and crossed instead. Other than that it was the other way round. Sarr was chasing Azpi's shadow because we defended his side well as a team.

    No one in Germany was thinking one minute they could win the title tho even when they were like 8 points above Bayern. Some of my colleagues who are Gladbach fans were bullish about them, some are dortmudn fans, so i challenged them for a bet with outrageously good odds for them and no one dared it.
