  1. What a night. The game felt like ages since the moment we scored, I probably aged 10 years but the hours since have flown by. Will take another few days to totally sink . Would have loved to go through the bars and clubs with my friends like in 2012 but there is another place to celebrate and that is here. Will take an hour or two to read through your content and relive the moments... Like the first one this CL win is gonna become a huge moment, personally for me. I wasn't born a Blue but I chose it early and committed for it with it for quite some time. My environmen thas not alwys reac

  2. Kounde for me is the most future center-back in world football. He is only 22 years old and has been playing in the elite since he was 17. He started as a right-back but went on to play as a center-back in the second year at Girondins. Sevilla FC bet on him with 20 years paying € 25M (most expensive transfer in our history). Jules Koundé is 1'78 tall but reaches unexpected places. Seeing him jump is a real spectacle. The taller the striker, the bigger he becomes in the passing game. The secret is in his lower body and an explosive physique. His height is not a problem for his game. But he

  4. We need Tchoumani this week, Villareal ran circles in our mid after Kante went off. We need muscle in that mid, no way we can survive another season with the midfield we have.

  6. Jesus christ. It is the same on the other forum. People taking shots at Lamps and rightly so people are coming in and hitting out against those who are taking shots at him. Lamps regardless of what he said played a huge part in us getting through the UCL, finishing top and eased through the group. He is a legend and one of us and I am sure will be delighted in us reaching the final. Can't people just be happy we are in a final. Started by Lamps and finished by Tuchel and hopefully best to come . You would think Lamps is some villain the way people are taking unnecessary shots at him. It is a b

  7. Our 12 major signings since Conte and Emenalo left and we took different direction: Jorginho - officially best player in Europe, possible Ballon d Or winner Kepa - even if this is the worst deal ever, does not change the fact that the board is doing great job. 10 great buys and 2 bad is great record for example, and he had great first season with Sarri, just got us 5m in SC, still not giving up on him. Only negative people would focus on Kepa from this list Kovacic - won POTY, great player to have Pulisic - in big period of first season he made us forget Hazard, was amazing

  8. Maybe i'm old fashioned but I've always believed team chemistry trumps personal stats. If he (all comps) scores 30 but it is pretty clear his presence is holding us back despite that (ala Mario Gomes at Bayern) and we finished 3rd or worse then I'll be unhappy. That's actually my main worry as I was a big fan of our fluidity with Kai in that position. If on the other hand he scores 15 but we piss the league and make a big go at our UCL defense, then who cares? That's why I don't really take part in the Werner bashing outside of banter, because despite the frustrations infront of

  9. Just finished watching the game again from the Chelsea app (much better with some emotional Chelsea commentary rather than the crap we had to put up with during the game listening to Steve McManaman). The first half they fell completely into the traps Tuchel set and really the game could have been as good as over by that point. The second half though, whilst nail-biting at the time, was fantastic in a different way. I love watching Chelsea play good football and I think over time that side of our game will elevate significantly under Tuchel. But nothing gives me greater satisfaction

  10. Took us from 10th to finishing 4th. This has to be credited. Yes, we lost the final game but he gave us the chance to fight for the top 4 after that Lampard fiasco. And we did it. With luck. Again. Just like last season when Leicester did the impossible and failed to finish the job. So whatever happens now, he gave us the CL for next season.

  11. Mendy has been class since we got him. I can't believe there was actually discussion at one point that we need someone "world class" after he had a stretch of 3 average games or something. Honestly? Go have a look at the so called best keepers today like T S, Alisson and Ederson, etc. All of them still have a stinker every now and then. He has been immense and simply goes about and does his job. When called upon, he steps up and produces in big games like that. He is human and not infallible, but on a consistent basis when we need him, he is there. He is a top 10 keeper in th

  12. Said on TTs thread this is the first time since Mou the first time I feel the manager is not responsible for the rut. I feel it's testament to Tuchel's quality we have only had one fluke defeat in our bad run.

  13. You just have to respect the opponent. They fight real hard and even after the final whistle after losing to us, their fans were singing. Lovely to see. They really cherish the opportunity.

  15. I dont think he was MOTM or anything, but very pleased with Kepa. Noticed his game is evolving. Several times he came out for shots that in the past he would have been rooted to the goal line waiting for.

  16. Seeing that second half resilience and mentality with 10 men against a real top attacking team in a hostile atmosphere is more satisfying than anything else. Remember how we capitulated against West brom last season with 10 men. This feels like a moment which signals we're ready to fight for the title this season.

  17. Gonna miss Zouma as a personality and as a solid Chelsea player. Seemed like a huge character around the place and someone everyone loved. West Ham building an extremely solid side. In fact, they may have a more dangerous side than Arse which is hilarious.

  18. This is OTT. Zouma has been a good servant and always given his all for the club which he has been a part of for 7 years now despite his lack of ability. We should pay him the respect he deserves even if we wish him to leave.

  21. What a fantastic night. Very strange for myself in many ways as I gave up drinking a few years back to concentrate on family life as for me, drinking always led other things which ultimately led to depression. So in 2012 I was off my rocker with my old friends which was obviously a great experience at the time but I can't really remember much of it... whereas last night I spent this fantastic occasion with my wife to be, son and daughter. It was his first CL final as he was born in 2013.. he loved it... and it just made the night even more special. Like many of you have said, in 2012...

  24. So proud of this team. Bossed the game. Every player out there put in a shift and we were fully deserving of our win over them. Despite all our spending this season, on average we have also had 2 players from the academy in the starting 11 for like almost every game. To see Mount and James start the game and win the UCL at such a young age is a huge achievement. Christensen played majority of that game and was faultless. Mount provided the match winning assist with a perfect through ball. James was a boss out there and won virtually every duel against Sterling. I love being the underdog i

  25. Forget a new contract Tuchel deserves a statue for the turnaround he's managed this season. Whilst 2012 was the end of an era, this time it feels it could be just the beginning.

  31. Wow you're criteria for success must be pretty small! The Torres signing left us hamstrung for years. The Barca goal was a great emotional moment to cap off the most ridiculous game but it was technically irrelevant as we were through without it. On top of putting up with Torres, we lost Sturridge and missed out on Aguero as a result and unlike other complete failures like Morata we weren't able to get any sort of return back on him. There is absolutely no way that Lukaku can be packaged alongside Torres at present. He has 7 goals in 18 games so far, 6 of those have been coming

  35. Will say it again and again and keep saying it, Thomas Tuchel, his ruthlessness and sheer will to be the best is the most important thing this group has. Best manager we have had in years. If we keep him happy we will become an absolute force, I am fully convinced. He’s never fully satisfied. No slacking off or oh we did this so we should be ok. First half wasn’t good in terms of the basics and you seen the reaction second half. As he said post match, the duals, recoveries, 50-50s etc he talked a lot about them and whilst its not a big thing in smaller games, in big games, these are

  36. Saul on loan for €5M with a €35M buy option is a hell of a deal, hats off to Marina. This again shows it's only a good thing for the club that she doesn't budge in transfer negotiations. Sure we didn't get Kounde in the end but if she caved on that one she would have had to cave with Saul too and got a much worse deal on that one.
