  1. Chelsea v Arsenal

    Completely OT but I think that is actually a bird, probably a canary No offence but I pray your boy Matic's vision is better than yours
  2. Champions League thread

    Dafuq is Barca in pot2? Doesn't the uefa club ranking coefficient also come into consideration when computing the pots?
  3. The English Football Thread

    The other way round is actually much more suitable given either's preference for cutting inside.
  4. James Rodríguez

    Utd are mad. Signing all this talent including Griezman and James. They probably can take place on the bench next to Mata and Martial when Fellaini leads the line for Mourinho
  5. 5. Kurt Zouma

    Holy crap that performance yesterday was horrendous. Would not have expected him to be perfect after that injury but he really lost a lot of sharpness, presence and balance adding to his far from perfect positional awareness. At fault for Janmaats goal and could not deal with crosses from either side.
  6. Christian Atsu

    meh. shame he is injured so often. He is arguably one of the quickest players in Europe and might have been drafted in the wing back role as back up to Moses, but we sure can look at better alternatives. I am a bit under-informed tho but the only game I ever watched of his was his MOTM display vs Germany at the 2014 WC so he thought he was quite good.
  7. 23. Michy Batshuayi

    Tbf he spoke English himself with the reporter, only Courtois translated to him, so he obviously has more problems with understanding than reading which tbf is nothing to be ashamed of. I learned French in school for like 8 years and can write the language fairly well, however when I am there on vacation I only understand bits and usually have to switch to English.
  8. Chelsea 4-3 Watford

    Good win. Showed that our backbup backline is not quite the level of the first one
  9. Chelsea 4-3 Watford

    Prödl the only player who did not get this is basicaly a friendly deservedly sent off. Just 40 mins too late.

    Dafuq did he do there
  12. Chelsea 4-3 Watford

    feels so damn good approaching a game knowing you are champions already. Is like going to the parties already having secured that when you come home your bed will not be empty.
  13. Fernando Torres

    https://uk.sports.yahoo.com/news/steven-gerrard-explains-why-liverpool-123422879.html that explains a lot....
  14. The European Leagues & Competitions Thread V2

    I agree with those ManU fans. Jose really has become an incredible boring type of manager. Always the same antics, same tactics. Demanding super expensive overrated players to play some medieval cattenacio football with them. But tbf SAFs football was incredibly shitty to watch, too. The difference being, apart from his peak teams of 2007,2008, he won the league several times with an absolutely average squad with players like Tom Cleverley, twice over the hill Scholes, past-it Giggs, Valencia, Fabio, Rafael, Gibson and other Championship level players defending 1-0 leads as if their live depended on it and with friendly support from the ref. SAFs football was absolute eye-cancer however. Simply having their defenders whack the ball in the air and then rush many players forward to collect the rebound pumping it in the Box and hoping for a prime Ronaldo, prime Rooney or prime RvP to bail him out.
  15. Chelsea 3-0 Middlesbrough

    Reviewing this game, this was like watching prime Barcelona, chance after chance, wave after wave for us, nothing from them. Also those intricate one touch football and the vertical runs with diagonal balls it was one of our aesthetically most pleasing performances ever. However - also prime barca - the finsihing was horrible. I dunno how this game did not end up in double figueres.
  16. West Brom 0-1 Chelsea

    Would be happy with a point....
  17. Chelsea 3-0 Middlesbrough

    who gives a damn what some club won in the Stone Age. Just ask them what they will prefer some mesolithic titles or a glorious present and a bright future like we have,
  18. Chelsea 3-0 Middlesbrough

    Great performance on both ends. only the finishing has to be more clinical.
  19. Chelsea 3-0 Middlesbrough

    The way this fixture is set up I would expect an open game. They need to win all of their games to have a chance of staying up. We will be pumped to finish the title race off. I see them scoring but only once..should be 2-1 or 3-1 to us. Cesc should start to carve them open.
  20. The English Football Thread

    WHU were already shit when they still had something to play for. Under big Sam they at least hat some kind of grit to them and could effectively park the bus but now they are all over the place defensively. All we can hope for is that tottenham will be wasteful with the dozens of chances they will get against that poor excuse of a premier league team and lanzini score some fluke goal like he did vs us.
  21. 4. Cesc Fàbregas

    I think his ball control is just fine. It is more like he can't go the intensity for 90 minutes at full pace. A shame considering he has only just turned 30. But he could play this elite-joker role for like another 6,7 years.
  22. 19. Diego Costa

    I usually will not judge on these kind of rumours because I know nothing about how those Chinese football clubs are run and apart from the shitloads of money you earn theere, I don't see why anyone should go there. I could imagine that players are driven by their money-grabbing entourage to take those excessive wages. Otherwise I personally see no gain for a player. At some point, does it really matter if u have 20m or 80m ? Back to Costa. Even though I would prefer to not lose our entire strikeforce in one window, if any of those China rumours are true, I hope he fucks off. Because leaving Europe before having won enough titles to warrant a new challenge shows lack of ambition and would explain his indifferent form since January. Moreover. Costa with all his antics is too high maintenance for a player with only a decent output. Esp in the later stages of this season and the 2014/15 one his scoring dwindled when there was a lot at stake so he definitely is not the top class striker we need to be challenging in Europe again next season.
  23. Chelsea 3-0 Middlesbrough

    The thing is, if we win our next 3 games we are Champions before Tottenham even play Leicester. If we win our next two games, the only one who can give us a good old sofa championship is Jose and boy will he love that. I think he will give his players a boot up the ass only because he wants to milk that he made us champions. U remember when we he bottled the title in 2014? He was like, 'we did the double over liverpool and Mancity, so we are better then them both'. He adapts any wicked logic that will flatter his ego. Knowing that he can't stop us becoming champions anymore, he will pat himself on the chest if he beats Tottenham tiwce. My prediction is that we will win our next 3, crown ourselves Champions against Watford and Spurs subsequently dropping points in either of their last two games finishing on 87 points with us on 91.
  24. Chelsea 3-0 Middlesbrough

    They drew but boro must be kidding themselves if they really think they will make up 7 points on them
  25. The English Football Thread

    Your right. But my point was, the spurs players beat arsenal unaware that we had thrashed Everton beforehand. If they had known it would have been a whole diffferent story. After they play westham we play twpmgames before they play again and if the gap is 7 points again then it is all over.
