  3. Officially my favourite José quote ever! Any more of a blatant dig at Pep he would've showed a picture of his face and laughed! How I love that man, he says everything we're thinking!

  4. as usual Mourinho exposes a team's weakness for all the world to see a good manager will then try to come up with new tactics a stubborn manager (Van Gaal, Wenger) will keep sticking to their "philosophy", don't want to admit that they've been found out by Mourinho

  5. "When we play against Chelsea I say the impression is we play against a small team with very good players,’ he said. ‘Every person is different. For me, a big team which has possession of the ball must try to score more goals, must try always to win. It is different ways of thinking."Fair play?

  7. i just dont get this discussion. are we actually discussing about milner as a RAMBO replacement. i know rambo has got limitations. a lot of limitations. but people expect me to believe that milner can do the rambo job in the carling cup final, against spurs? they have got to be deluded. would rather see moses or one of our armies of loanees playing on the wings than milner.

  18. Because the situation does not allow for it to happen? The systematic racism in the US goes too deep and the system is too powerful, it cannot be changed peacefully, imo. There were more than two weeks of peaceful demonstrations after Fredie Gray's injuries and until his death, how much did you hear about it? Did any major new network in the US even mention it? I know about it because I watch Democracy Now, the vast majority of US citizens who watch CNN or Fox and the vast numbers who don't watch the news at all knew nothing about it. There are literally tens of peaceful demonstrations all ove

  20. Having graduated in politics, we learned about riots. They are an important part of the progress and advancement of ordinary , working class people. They are not as effective as reformism, but are an important tool in our armoury. They are usually spontaneous and result from frustration and anger. Rulers and Governments hate them, and get their lackeys in the corporate media to condemn without hesitation. The corporate media inevitably describe such events thus " It started off peacefully, but a hardcore etc etc," " the majority were peaceful, but a minority were hellbent etc etc " The main r

  21. Tim Sherwood really has surprised me with Villa... Benteke looking very good. Jack Grealish a half decent player in the making too, simple and effective. Roberto Martinez a shambles, spends 30M on Lukaku, Everton sitting maybe 10th or something, any other club he'd probably get sacked.

  22. Lazy bastard, ShpendZhubi already posted his performance above. https://www.youtube.com/watch?t=115&v=ugSaS7h6_gM 1:51 Fantastic pass, but not that good imo. Fab's pass for Schurrle's goal against Burnley for example was better imo. Incredible goal. Hazard with some typically brilliant play in the build up. Hazard needs to play more vertical passes like that btw. Over the ground or over the top. Should also work on his range of passing. He has it in him.

  24. Hmm I have not followed his contract talks. But I can not imagine the club selling him: - our ownly England international - two of our English players left (JT) - homegrown - experienced in big matches - still young for cb, 29 years old - very reliable in defensive systems - don't seems to be a trouble maker - set piece weapon, like the assist to JT last game He regained his form and has been very good since that Westham game, recently he had some Motm performances for us, like last season. It's debatable whether he is good enough to be a starter, but as a 3rd choice CB he is very safe.

  25. What is it with English talent? Even though I did think the praise and hype was too much after last season, he did look like a good prospect. People give Rooney a lot of stick, probably because of their own ridiculous expectations, but he's a top player. Not the most consistent performer, but still a player that will probably go down in history as Utd's and England's highest goal-scorer. He was the last English talent to become a top player Rooney's breakthrough was 10 years ago and since then we've seen so many 'big talents' come and go. Makes you wonder how Sterling, Wilshere, Ox, Ward-Prows

  26. It's not like the PL sides are in a position to buy Barca, Bayern or Real players (the regulars of course). They can't clean out Juve, Atletico or PSG either. Whoever they're buying, they won't be players that are better than Chelsea's. And then there's the issue of needing time to adapt. No, I'm not having it. It's not going to be an easy ride, but Chelsea is the best side in England by a good distance. And there's no need for a huge quality injection to win the league again, yeah, but it will be needed to improve in Europe. I hope the ambition to be the best is still very much alive.

  30. Exactly. I watch messi come from the right, and put neymar through on goal with fantastic vertical passes time and time again.Hazard has the ability, but he's too scared to lose the ball to try it imo. He needs try things more to become even more unpredictable than he already is

  31. It's scary. He's genuinely as good as he was 10 years ago. He's the best centre back in the history of the premier league and he's still, in his mid 30's probably the best too. Can't wait for him to lift that premier league trophy with Cech and Drogs.

  32. Ramires is a good squad player, but should be nothing more. He does not complain about sitting on the bench or playing out of position. Furthermore he seems like nice guy and executes Mourinhos instructions perfectly, his brutality is legendary, for example ask Mario Götze, lol. Especially in the games against PSG i saw his limitations, next season Koke/Pogba should overtake his spot. Sadly i am not so sure Mourinho would agree, because Mourinho believes in playing reactive football. I think Ramires would like that comment, lol.

  33. Fair enough. What JT does in his personal life is no business of mine though. I only care about his behaviour on the pitch, bar the extreme of course, and he's the face of Chelsea for me. The club better make sure he's forever connected to the club. And I expect a monumental sending off when the time comes.

  34. One game? I can name high calibre players who have looked out of their depth in one game. Any player can have a complete off day. Milner is a very good player. I don't see how you can judge him on one game.

  35. It isn't just about Freddie Grey, it's a history of slavery, then segregation and now police brutality, there's a point where some people just burst and I can't blame them. I've never experienced what they have so how can i tell them not to riot? Everything they try, the media spins them into "thugs" and after a certain point, windows will be smashed. I get why people are upset over that, (and this is not distracted at you Spike) but many people in my country are more concerned with broken glass than a man whose throat was smashed and his spine severed in three places while in police custody.

  37. The only aspect Ramires has over Milner is his physical attributes - pace, stamina, strength etc. Otherwise, Milner is much better technically (not just a bit) - he can pass the ball, can cross the ball and heck even deliver proper set pieces into dangerous areas. Not sure why you mentioned Milner's problems in midfield when he's more of a wide player than anything else. He has shown he can player well in that position and combine, play 1-2s effectively with other creative players around him. His combination with Silva in particular has always been great to watch - the movement, the simple pas

  39. Griezmann is really more of a goalscorer than a goal creator, even when he used to play out wide for Real Sociedad (he's only got 24 assists in his club career but has 77 goals). At Atletico Madrid, he's playing in the striker position these days and as much as he's a quality player, I don't think he is what we need to be honest.

  40. Fergie doing it wasn't really once in a blue moon, he would do it whenever he feels it's nessesery, he has always been partial to it. I can list a number of examples in the morning but right now im too pissed (birthday). Of course ideally id love to see us blow a big team out of the water, infact we did do it on Jose's return vs Liverpool and Arsenal (the 2-1 flattered Liverpool big time) but I don't honestly believe this squad is anywhere near complete (one for a greavsie explains it much better than I do).

  41. Don't forget that Ancelotti set Real Madrid up to play on the counter against Bayern last season too. Only had 28% of the possession in the first leg at the Bernabeu...

  42. Fergie employed the tactics many times at United, including at The Nou Camp in 2008 with his best ever team, LVG did it in the WC semi. Infact the way we set up yesterday reminded me of how Ancelotti use to set us up against Arsenal, allow them possession were they can't hurt us and then hurt them on the counter.
