  1. Sorry but absolute bollox was the UCL win lucky in anyway shape or form. We absolutely battered both Madrid sides, were comfortable against Porto and if anything should have won the final by even more than 1. We equalled the UCL goals allowed record and were behind for a grand total of five minutes for the entire tournament, four in a dead rubber group game and one in a second leg match we were winning comfortably overall. It's bad enough this nonsense comes from rival fans.

  4. 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

  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. Everyone complains that the Dippers are great at making signings and that we always mess the majority of ours up. Dippers then come in with a large offer for one of our players, who is still young, and people want to take it? OK....

  10. Blimey I'm surprised I still have an active account here. Might as well pop in and say thank you to the greatest owner in football history. It's obviously a shame what's happened but he's left us with everything, he literally completed football with us. We all know he's been done and is innocent but let's all get behind Bohely and hope the success can continue and we can keep challenging for the biggest honours in the game.

  11. Devastated by the news. Success of past 20 years wasn't only a product of Roman's money, but also of his direct involvement with the club major decisions. His ruthless decisions will be missed in coming seasons, because I'm afraid whoever buy the club would be more interested in profits than in results on the pitch. The worst case scenario would be the club being bought by Americans, who would run the club like American franchises (results won't matter as long as financial situation is great), so its basically Arsenal and United way. Roman will be forever missed, and despite the initial b

  12. 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

  13. I don't see any point in whining at the bloke. He did what he did and whether he had played or not, he is the past. Let it, and him, go. He was at the club for a long time but, for whatever reason, we were unable to get him to fall in love with Chelsea. If we are ready to wise then, instead of competing to throw the most cutting insult at Andreas, we should recognise that there is a lesson to be learned and try to learn it. In any case, Chris is not the first to do this. At least not in my opinion. Although Frank gave him cover, I believe that Willian feigned injury to avoid playing in th

  15. Felt really disappointed that we lost but now I've finished a shift at work and in reflection, I'm pretty proud of the eay we went down. Yea we made silly defensive mistakes but at least we didn't get our pants pulled down and not one single Spanish journalist can say that we play 'anti-football'. We pretty much dominated that game. We have to keep TT at all costs. I felt he made a mistake in not trying to defend the lead at 3-0 but he is honestly the only reason we were able to pull of a 3-0 lead at the Berna in the first place. I really hope we are able to make changes to the squad in the su

  16. No from what has been reported, he can find a buyer and then come to an agreement with the Government that the sale can go through so long as he's not pocketing the proceeds himself. The assets have been frozen and not seized so he can still choose a buyer. Given the shitstorm this is causing I would imagine the Government would be more than happy for this to take place, they won't want to keep these sanctions imposed on the club for too long as it would literally kill us off.

  17. If the Government have in their opinion fair grounds to sanction Roman Abramovich then I have absolutely no problem with that. Take hold of his assets such as property, etc. But when it comes to businesses, surely a bit of common sense should prevail and the business should be allowed to continue to trade. It surely wouldn't take much to have independent auditors/regulators step in to help run the financial aspects of the club to ensure no money is being paid out to Abramovich or through any vehicles relating to Russia.

  21. 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.

  22. 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.

  23. 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.

  24. 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.

  25. Gvardiol has probably the most impressive YouTube highlights I’ve seen of any CB in recent years. He’s got the exact same sort of aggression and force that Rüdiger has but then has ridiculous skills on the ball as well. He looks as good as an attacking midfielder in possession. He’s picture perfect as a Toni replacement. Really hope we get him. He’s the sort of profile that Pep or Klopp would sign for sure, so we need to move this summer while those sides don’t need another CB.

  30. 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.

  41. yawn you are obsessive with Mount it is not normal I call a few players shit but I long ago stopped with Alonso, long ago he is flawed, but he also comes up with more positive big plays than howlers I do not rate Sarr, he is a nightmare but the only time I bring him up is usually when he plays, or when he is on a deadwood list I have no idea why you have this multiple year obsession with slagging off Mount he is an England starter and a piece of our bedrock I love him, he makes me feel good about Chelsea on balance

  42. I think its also a clear sign of Tuchel’s evolution from his time at Dortmund and PSG too. Maybe I am wrong but I feel he may have been a bit more rash if this happened in the past at his other clubs, he looks as if he’s re-evaluated it all and come on leaps and bounds in that side. We have also seen Conte’s reaction to Costa’s interview with ESPN Brazil (IIRC) or maybe it was AS/Marca where he said the club treated him like criminal and Conte‘s reaction was combustible or more likely to cause an upset compared to how TT has dealt with it. I genuinely believe this scenario and the

  44. Take out The Drog's 29 goals in 32 games during 2009/10 and his record becomes 75 goals in 222 games. Just under 1 in 3. This underlines the truth about Didier which gets disguised in our memories by his habit of performing in the big games and his penchant for the spectacular. This truth is that he had notable technical shortcomings of his own. As I regularly admit, when I watched DD at Marseilles I was against signing him. In fact I did a post saying that his touch was hit and miss, his control on the run can be clumsy and he likes a dive. What I did not see at Marseilles was Didier's c

  45. That is nonsense. Take your tinted glasses off. Is Premier league a garbage league? Lukaku scored 17 league goals at WBA who are a relegation battling team. 15 league goals in his first season at Everton. In his last 2 seasons at Everton he got 18 league goals then 25 league goals. You just seem like someone who has hatred for him rather than actually acknowledging he has improved.
