  1. Diego Costa

    Be careful what you wish for. I remember a certain Loic Rémy setting Ligue 1 alight not so long ago... and now look at him.
  2. Diego Costa - still hot or not?

    Good article, poor topic. We, as Chelsea fans, are our own worst enemies at times and expect far too much. If a player goes through a patch of fine form, we begin to expect that sort of standard consistently but the reality of football is that very few footballers in world football can be that good, that consistently. (In fact, two players only spring to mind...) He's played well this season, suffered a dip of form as of late but still managed to score (yes, it definitely was his vs. Spurs) when it mattered most. He's the closest thing we'll have to replacing Drogba so, in my eyes, we should be thankful rather than over-analytic.
  3. Chelsea Kits thread

    I like the kit, don't get me wrong, but I'd definitely prefer it if it was to have a buttoned neck.
  4. Chelsea Kits thread

    Simplicity is definitely the way forward. I'm glad kit manufacturers have finally started to work this out.
  5. Chelsea Kits thread

    That is adorable.
  6. Chelsea Kits thread

    Looks like I'll be buying both of our shirts this season then if that away one is to be believed. Definitely opting for a long sleeved home shirt this time around though - absolutely gorgeous.
  7. FIFA Ultimate Team Thread

    I got a mini-Gold Pack as my daily gift today, but can't friggin' see who I've got because the computer at work is so darn slow... Grrr.
  8. FIFA Ultimate Team Thread

    Thanks for that information - really useful. The actual game tomorrow? What? I didn't think the game came out until next Friday (28th)?
  9. FIFA Ultimate Team Thread

    I've just got rid of all the useless fodder they give you to begin with and trying to build a Ligue 1 side. I'm also trying to keep an eye out for a bargain or two to try and get a bit of re-sale value for when the game is released. It's hard to do so though with such a minimal budget. Players I've got so far: Gourcuff, Cabella, Capoue and Gonalons. Players I've got hoping to re-sell: Bender, Mavuba and Mudingayi. I've already bought and re-sold Mathieu Debuchy - I bought him to try and fit in with my team but didn't notice at the time that I'd bought one in the wrong formation. I just put it straight back up for auction and made 100 coins. Not bad for a few seconds work, eh? How can I buy some packs now? I'm too eager to wait until the game and am looking to start trading now in the hope to find a few steals before release day!
  10. FIFA Ultimate Team Thread

    Have you all been buying packs? Is it worth trying to get all my players now before the game is out? Will the prices sky-rocket upon release?
  11. Steve, you are a God amongst men. It's been a long time coming. I wonder if he puts his money where his mouth is and attempts to create a Chelsea forum with a "better server"?
  12. Facebook & Twitter

    Follow me, @gdostephens, and my new blog site, @SwingItInSon.
  13. I want to view signatures again, how do I do this? I had to ask how to disable them and felt like a noob, and now I'm having to ask how to re-enable them...
  14. Ligue Un Discussion Thread

    True, and Marseille started last years campaign horrifically. It's a hotly-contested league that is very unpredictable. Am I right in thinking we've seen four different winners of Ligue 1 in the past four seasons, following Lyon's prolonged dominance of the league? It's nice to see PSG stumble though because they were outstanding favourites for the league and everyone loves an underdog. Lyon and Marseille had poor seasons last time out (by their standards), but have both started this campaign well which is nice to see. Especially given the fact that Marseille are going through financial trouble having renovated the Velodrome and didn't qualify for the Champions League. Don't see why other fans are reluctant to watch Ligue 1 though, most matches are highly entertaining and there are some quality players in the making plying their trade there. I love it.
  15. Seeing as though this is a feedback/bugs thread, I feel inclined to offer my opinion on a certain matter (or should I say member?) that grinds my gears... He goes by the name of 'Justin_3d'. If you're going to continue to moan about the server, I kindly suggest that you find somewhere else to post about Chelsea Football Club. We all post here because of one reason; that being that we love Chelsea, as well as discussing matters concerning the football club. If you can't see the effort and time Jim and all the rest of the staff put into this place to constantly improve and develop TalkChelsea, then I will personally book you in for an appointment at the opticians. It's glaringly evident how time-consuming it must be to run this place and if you're incapable of appreciating it, then I think you ought to take your "5k offer" elsewhere. In all seriousness though, the homepage keeps on improving and it really does entice users toward the site. Easily the most professional-looking Chelsea fan site out there. Keep up the good work, lads.

    ...like a boss.
  17. You're French. No-one cares.
  18. Mugshots

    Not sure if I've shared a pic on here before... and even if I have, it must have been ages ago. The missus, myself, my friend and her boyfriend.
  19. Daniel Sturridge

    Three words spring to mind... U, mad and bro?
  20. Is the Ex-Blues database not around anymore?
  21. Eden Hazard

    All this penalty chit-chat is doing my Eden.
  22. You don't spam - you're just outspoken, aren't you? *gets coat and leaves*
  23. Name Changes thread

    You clearly ignored this post: Oh, and just to keep on topic - I'm still very happy with my display name!
  24. Name Changes thread

    They will because you're kicking up one hell of a fuss over one minor alteration. If you're wanting to start afresh, I suggest you put your old grudges aside. Calling 'zolayes' an old cunt? Was that really necessary? You're meant to respect your elders, not speak to them like shit. You can't gain respect by speaking to people in that manner... and if you're still going to do that under a new name, then what's the point? People will still refer to you and remember you as Sloth, regardless of a name change.
  25. Name Changes thread

    That would be me... Shock horror.
