  1. Honestly a loan in the Premier League is long overdue for Ruben, he needs to get out there playing games every week to move on with his development.
  2. Love this show so much. Every season has a different feel to it which keeps it going. Last season was hard to watch at some points but it was a very good season. I watched these series back to back so they all sort of bleed into one for me but I loved when they were in the prison dealing with the Govenor. It is real quality television
  3. The only time you can judge the board and what they have done at the very least is when the transfer window is closed. These days more than ever the transfer speculation is a mixture of actual news, reporters drawing attention to themselves and clubs and players using the media for their own agenda. For all we now we have a number of deals tied up and are waiting for any number of reasons to announce them. Personally I will decide on the boards abaility this summer once everything is done on the transfers.
  4. As always this is a multi level question. Yes it is true that young players have a very difficult route into our first team. But that is true for pretty much every team. We have a high level of expectation because our academy is talked about a lot and it is very successful but the fact is the route is hard. There is no real competitive bridge from U18's to first team. If you look at the article on the CFC website from Neil Bath at the moment he is saying exactly this and more players will start going out on loan to get professional football experience at a younger age. Our academy is

  7. When Chelsea signed up to the NextGen series they signed up for 2 years. So next year Chelsea will compete in BOTH the NextGen Series and the UEFA U19's CL. The UEFA version is only for the team qualified for the CL. 2 very different competitions and at youth level things are very different, just looking at the Semi Finals of the NextGen highlights that with both Sporting Lisbon and Aston Villa in the Semi's neither of whom will be in the CL. However it is only good for us to be playing both as it is more game time for the players and against quality opposition. Still not a solution to the big
  8. I like varying my reading with Fiction and non-fiction - currently going a bit deeper with my current book "The Battle For God" by Karen Armstrong - a book on the history of Fundamentalism in religion, had the book the over a year but seems a good time to sit down and read it now.....
  9. Never read up on the theories usually, but might have to take a look..... That theory has become more and more likely as the books have gone along. So many hints at it. Seriously going to have to re-read the series very soon
  10. Damn, and there was me thinking that i was the only one thinking along those lines....
  11. Absolutely, has far too high an opinion of herself and what she is able to do. Just seeing the person she has raised Joffrey to be shows that she looks at the "game" all wrong.
  12. Agree with that, the Starks in general have lost a lot their essence in the TV show..... One of my favorite characters in the book is Varys, such an intriguing character and always full of surpises. In the TV show Tyrion pretty much steals the show everytime...
  13. Oh yes indeed i did been keeping up on the news for months. Initial trailer looks very impressive but it is going to be hard to get across a truly faithful adaptation and they have admitted as much. Love seeing my favorite books and book series turned into film and TV. Just waiting now for the adaptation of Stephen King's "Dark Tower" series which has been talked about for ages now.....
  14. Got the first book of that on my shelf to read at some point..... Currently reading "Earth Unaware" the first book in the first formic war trilogy from the "Enders Game" series of books...
  15. You have to think that United were either turned down by Jose or they have really taken this high minded attitude to the appointment of "our managers have to be blah blah blah blah....." Just like the guff that comes out of Arsenal (we don't win trophies but what a well run club we are) or Liverpool (look at our history, ignore all the negative stuff we are still the best team in the world)... At the end of the day its all about winning. I will be doing cartwheels if Jose is confirmed at Chelsea manager and i am pleased that Man United have taken Moyes on because it puts them in a vastly weake
  16. I guess with regards to Rooney the question has to be, would you be happy with him being our big name striker signing this summer? Would he be the type of striker we need to take us up a level? Pointless talking about him in any other position, the number 10 role Mata and Oscar are better and he is not going to play any deeper.
  17. Going to be very interesting to see where they go with the wight's, obviously going to be involved in some sort of grand scale "end game" to the series. Really need to re-read the series soon, been too long and i would love to immerse myself back in Westeros....
  18. You would think we would have learned our lesson of buying forwards who have seemingly passed the peak of their powers!! Rooney COULD be very good for us, but i do not think it is worth the risk at all and we would be better off looking elsewhere...
  19. It's very interesting that there have been a number of players now coming out and openly discussing the return of Jose. Taking everything into account it seems very certain that Jose is to return, i never honestly thought i would see the day but i think it is going to be great for us again. My only hope is that between them Jose and Roman can sit down and plan out a way to take us forward for the long term, i don't buy it that Jose is ONLY a 3 season top man, i think he would feel it is time to him to create something long term somewhere and that given the right circumstances could be us.
  20. What was the objective? I still can't get my head around it!!The TV show kind of messed that scene up really and didn't get across the point.
  21. Don't be silly, he is called Hodor......... My little boys name is Renly
  22. Games of thrones is the biggest and best thing on TV, they have done an amazing job of taking the books and converting it for TV. Series 3 has been good so far, even though small things are changing slightly from the books it is still epic and has had my favorite scene for Dany in the whole series where she takes the unsullied, she needs to show more of her badass side. There is nothing like this series of books, and it is going to be very interesting to see where they take it... Absolutely love the TV series but the books are even better, love the series so much my son is even named after a A
  23. I am a Director of a property company and also a Director of a company that imports sportswear.
  24. For all the people slating Roman and saying he should go. If you would pick RDM over Roman then you are bonkers. Yes it is surprising that the club have moved so quickly, but things were looking very difficult for Robbie to turn it around. I guess they did not want to let things get any worse like what happened under AVB. Bottom line is i can accept the regular changes as long as we stay in the hunt for the titles. People say we are made to look a joke, so what, it's not as if keeping the same manager for 10 years will make the media or anyone other than Chelsea fans like us.
