  1. Frenkie de Jong

    Agree, truly a great in the making, oozes class this guy, so composed and elegant on the pitch, makes me think he is like the Roger Federer of football. Barcelona are a lucky bunch.
  2. Next Manager?

    Think others have watched Derby more than I did and when they say Franks not ready for the job maybe they indeed know what they are talking about, but from the few Derby matches that I have watched, the Old Trafford one, Southampton (x2), Brighton away and a couple of Championship ones, they did not look bad at all, I mean I was really impressed to see a young team playing on the front foot even against PL sides and not one that would park the bus and feed on 2nd balls all the time.
  3. Next Manager?

    I feel that the board have somehow accepted the transfer ban and have some sort of one year, maybe even two year plan of going through a transition where they plan to spend little to no money at all, give a Chelsea legend the manager role so that the fans are happy and support him through thick and thin and maybe they even plan to promote some youngsters. Don't think we as fans will get spoiled again with top transfers as long as Roman and the UK Government don't come to peace. In this case I'd rather we promote the Chelsea youngsters than spend 60-70M on useless ones that frankly you can easily find in the Academy.
  4. The European Leagues & Competitions Thread V2

    My hate for Liverpool breaks every limit and MAYBE if I was living in London I'd have rooted for them, but since I am not and European media holds Liverpool in a bubble, I hope for a Spurs win to keep my sanity intact. Going to be a long month of June should Liverpool win it and I won't touch any sports channel nor newspapers, they will even make special TV studios and dedicated programmes I am about to vomit just thinking of it. Whereas should Spurs win it they will talk tomorrow for the whole day and Monday they will go back to rapes, murders and bimbos marrying 80 year olds sugar daddies.
  5. Sarri But Not Sarri Thread

    - No Eden Hazard - Transfer ban incoming - Willian, Pedro, Pulisic and CHO (coming of a six month injury break) as your wingers. - Two average left backs and 2nd to 3rd tier centre backs. - Add to all this two world class competitors in Man City and Liverpool. Compared to: - Cristiano Ronaldo in your squad - Serie A winner come next May - CL contenders - Squad investments - Managing in your own country. Easy to see why Sarri would be the one pushing for the move - and I believe he truly is the one pushing for it, not Chelsea. As a matter of fact I 100% believe the club would not have even thought about a new manager if Sarri would not have asked to leave. Some say the 3rd place would not have been possible w/o Arsenal's capitulation in the last months, or United's bad performances, but who cares how we finished 3rd? In the end Sarri finished third, won a European trophy and in my view Chelsea was better than City in that League Cup final. For me he managed a very good season given all the circumstances and the squad he had at his disposal. Think Chelsea really improved under him in terms of passing game, build from the back etc. Only thing that was bad this season was the play in the final third were Chelsea look bad. Maybe this was going to change in Sarri's 2nd season? Maybe yes, maybe no. We will never know though. I like him as a manager and thank him for what he did here. A shame he could not emulate the Napoli squad atmosphere here as well. Happy though Chelsea is the one he will always remember as the club he won his first trophy with.
  6. Sarri But Not Sarri Thread

    To be fair if the club bring Frank in I'd rather they give him time to properly rebuild. If they want instant success then give him big bucks and bring top players in. No in between, enough with all the Zappacostas and Drinkwaters, as a Chelsea fan I'd rather we stay two years away from the top and integrate the likes of Mount, CHO, RLC, James etc in the first team, than have average players coming in, scrapping for top four finishes every season. Plenty of English talent in this generation, would love to see a Chelsea line up full of at least six English lads in 3-4 years.
  7. Chelsea 4-1 Arsenal

    Not only a win for the mighty Chels but a European trophy against a miserable club with some of the most bitter fans that brag about useless PL round 10, November wins that mean jack shit in the long run, like they would be the champions of the world. Fuck Arse and their deluded fans, enjoy UCL in front of your flat TV screen for a third season in a row. Not only they've lost against a rival they hate so much but we managed to fuck up all their summer plans in terms of transfers et al, they are the club with the fastest fall from the top ATM and long may it last!
  8. Sarri But Not Sarri Thread

    Why would Juventus officials be dining out at the end of the world with Bruce Buck of all people if not for the manager??? Sarri is gone.
  9. Chelsea 4-1 Arsenal

    Would love to mate but the trip depends on other three friends that atm are 50/50, my best mate and myself we're ready to go anytime but the trip itself it's simply not worth in two, I mean it's 3000 km and 33-34 hours of driving, the plan is to be five of us so that every one of us drives 6-7 hours and spend less time doing stops and sleep in some bnb or whatever, would be non stop drive. Waiting for the other three to decide hope they say it's ok so we can hit the road hehehe
  10. Loved this show but the ending was mehhh to me. Still one of those shows that will go down as truly one of the most memorable in the history of TV series, definitely one that at some point in the future I will gladly rewatch with my children. But for me nothing beats 'The Wire'. So far. GoT, The Sopranos, Breaking Bad, First season of True Detective, Band of brothers all memorable shows and special mention to Sherlock and Peaky Blinders and probably some others that I might forget in this moment. (Not counting the comedy stuff like Two and a half men, Friends, South Park etc etc) All remarcable TV series but for me 'The Wire' is in a league of its own. All the shows that I have mentioned, I waited for something to really blow my mind and surpass 'The Wire', but none has done so. Maybe I set the bar too high, but I know at some point there is going to be something better.
  11. General Transfer Talk

    Totally, I agree! I read all the transfer reports on twitter everyday surrounding the likes of De Ligt, Ziyech, Sane, Nicolas Pepe, Griezmann and lots of other players that are chased by the big clubs and what I see in every report is "wanted by Bayern, Madrid, Paris, City, United" or "offered to Liverpool, Paris (and all the other big ones)" Bar one - Chelsea. This is worrying. I see absolutely no report on a single top player where Chelsea is at least used as a clickbait. I don't think the ban is going to start this summer, maybe this winter or even next summer, but not now. In this case we are not even linked with Nicolas Pepe, a Chelsea fan by his own quotes with an affordable price tag. Nevermind a quality left footed winger Chelsea are in desperate need of since the Robben/Malouda days. Or I must say at least a link with a quality centre forward. Timo Werner is up for grabs for a decent price and made available by the Leipzig director himself. I'm not saying he is a must buy at any costs, but at least a link to know we're after some quality players that would actually improve a squad ready to play CL football next season.
  12. Sarri But Not Sarri Thread

    I see this scenario - first Frank and Derby go to PL then Chelsea have a stinker in the transfer market (if allowed to make any deals), Eden leaves and squad gets no improvements. By the end of next season Frank proves himself in the PL, keeps Derby safe from relegation while Chelsea getts battered in the CL Round of 16 and finishes 5th or 6th and no trophy to show for. Frank and JT take over after season finishes.
  13. Chelsea 4-1 Arsenal

    What a bloody mess this is mate simply cannot understand why big matches like this one and the WC that is going to come are played in countries with no footie culture, bloody hell Azerbaidjan do they even play football there? And it's not even in Europe!!!!!! I'm in Romania atm and even for me it's so damn expensive to go there by plane, 700 pounds and stops in Wien and Moscow, Jeeeeeesus....... My four mates and I it's easier to go there by car in the end, at least it is only three countries we have to cross and 6-7 hours of non stop driving each.
  14. 12. Ruben Loftus-Cheek

    I have so many insults in my head right now it would take me days to write them down, it's fucking shocking what has happened to this lad, hands down the brightest thing to happen this season and probably only one of the very few people I was looking forward to seeing next season in a Chelsea shirt. Now he is out for some time because of some meaningless friendly that could have easily been played during pre season or not even played at all in the end no one gives a damn bar some fuckers in the board that think they can improve the image of the club by playing some shite football matches like this one. No, you improve the image of the club by playing CL play off stages every season and challenge for the league title, not by bringing Marcos Alonso and Willain in the US
  15. Antoine Griezmann

    I pray to God that this is not the Coutinho money they get after ripping off Chelsea. Can't be. Must not be. We. Are. Not. That. Stupid!!!!!!!!
