    Good evening all you Blues fans Hope you don't mind but Im a Bristol City fan visiting your forum as I thought I'd take the time to pass on some comments about ( your )Tammy Abraham Im no starry eyed teenager but a a mid 50s , bit of a grumpy , Bristol City follower ,and someone who is losing love for the game I've lived and breathed for 50yrs Ironically the Blues are a team I followed closely for a number of years after you signed my childhood Chris Garland in early 70s, I even have a slightly scratched prized 'Blue is the colour' 45' !! I had a 10year spell scouting for a number of League Clubs and spend periods of games even now watching individual players rather than the game / following the ball so like to think I can provide a reasonable assessment of a player. So Tammy Abraham... First and foremost , alongside just about virtually every City fan I know , we are extremely grateful to Chelsea that have been fortunate enough to loan Tammy this season. If we avoid relegation it will be largely off the back of this lads young shoulders. Without him we would have been dead and buried weeks ago Im not a close follower of Premiership Football (Seems a million miles away from where we are) , particularly in respect of watching games in the flesh, and so I'm not in a educated position to say whether Tammy is likely to break through at his home club. As a top four club , who sign players of the quality of Hazzard , Costa etc I fully understand how and why it's always going to be ridiculously tough to break into such a quality side Ive seen all but two of our games this season and increasingly been watching Tammy and his development in his first taste of senior football. Tammys goal return as a standalone stat is indeed impressive but I can assure you doesn't IMHO come close to reflecting his ability or contribution The Championship , is a tough place to make an impact , especially at his age, and He has scored 22 goals this season in a very poor side in turmoil. He's scored those goals , in spite of extremely poor service and support , not because of decent or even reasonable service and support. He has been deployed for virtually the whole of the season as a lone striker with an overweight and unfit Lee Tomlin deployed as a 10 to support him, which he doesn't , save for a single game in front of Sky Cameras !!! As a result Tammy has been a isolated figure up top with poor support and a service normally thrown in his general direction and often somewhere around his throat. Centre halves in the Championship tend to be physical, often with some premiership experience and I'd say are probably more physical (as they can get away with a bit more in Championship !) and this lad has in truth, been battered most of the season from two centre halves in opposition sides , as I said often in a losing cause with dreadful support and Service. From the first minute he has appeared for us , does this lad lose faith or become demoralised - Not a bit , on a dozen or so occasions this season I've Sen him clattered and go or stay down in obvious pain but the lad gets treatment , gets up, and shakes himself down , time after time , game after game .... fantastic Every single game the lad comes off the pitch having left absolutely everything on it - fantastic to see, noticed, and appreciated by suppporters - the standard response to our (regular) defeats has been 'Tammy , Tammy ....Abraham' ringing round the ground , just that , always that , which sort of says everything Hes a talented lad no doubt, good first touch , with decent service can hold the ball up well and link play, and a willing runner in the channels.His finishing is pretty damned good, not perfect but he has the skill of finding space in the box and reading the game to be in the right place to poach goals - lovely to see a poacher, but he's a whole lot more than that and has shown when on the rare occasions he's clever enough and good enough to make the most of any decent service. He's not the polished gem yet but has developed even with us and has got to grips with the physicality and pace of First Team football week by week In my 50 years of following my club , as some of you will have , I've seen hundreds and hundreds of players and over a hundred loanees In all those years Tammy comes a very close second to Andy Cole in the obvious and significant impact he's had at our club over all those years As good as Andy Cole , close but not quite , but Cole was 21 when he came to us and Tammy has another two years before you could make a fair comparison - In two years time Tammy will be up there with a 21 yr old Andy Cole from what I have seen. I won't try and tell you anymore about your player whose career I will follow closely - I have no doubt that he will go on to forge a good career in the Premier League , hopefully in a Chelsea shirt and I'm confident that he will represent his country, possibly as a mainstay in a few years time So a massive Thankyou for the privilege of having this lad at Ashton Gate this season And finally and most importantly Ive started to fall out of love with the modern game and the modern footballer , full of ego and only interested in £££ , but this lad is a complete breath of fresh air in absolutely everything , about his commitment , humility , attitude , desire - truly awesome The way he conducts himself both on and off the pitch has been a complete joy as has witnessing his obvious and deep desire to play well and to achieve results His interaction with supporters is a joy and he has become admired and idolised amongst our fanabse and will walk our player and young player of the year and rightly so Embarrassingly his desire , commitment and obvious pain when the final whistle blows and we have been beaten is far in excess of every single one of our own players ( At Brentford on Saturday he mouthed 'Sorry' to our away following !!!! as he left the pitch after another defeat, despite having played HIS heart out for 90 mins ploughing a lone furrow up front again - when do you ever see that from a modern player !!) I have some connections at Bristol City and reports of this lad confirm everything I've witnessed, humble, extremely hard working, always has a smile on his face, eager to learn and improve ..... tick tick tick This lad has Id suggest a World Class attitude , whatever his ability is eventually assessed to be and I , as a football fan hope the lad goes on to have a fantastic career at the highest level and reaps the rewards that would bring .... because you know what..... this kid deserves everything he gets I thought you may like a third part view of the lad from someone whose seen lots of him this season and watched him closely in all aspects If he gets the chance at Stamford Bridge please get behind this lad as he is a gem , certainly attitude wise and will give everything for the shirt , that I can promise you He is a complete credit To Chelsea Football Club, to the academy and the staff that work there Most of all he's a credit to his parents , and most of all to himself - So nice to say that about a young modern footballer I will be really sad to see this lad go back to you in May as he's helped me keep some faith in modern day footballers Good luck for the rest of the season - undoubtedly another title possibly a double is on its way :) Love Conte - Think you are in for some years of sustained success !!!

    How they have the nerve to call us plastic, when they do sh*t like this, is beyond me, their players deserve better fans than this. According to a few of them, they out-sang us at 4-2 down, how? None of their fans were there, for f**ks sake, typical Spurs fans, lost the battle, resort to claiming victory in the singing cup, when is the parade? One look at their forum, it's actually worse than RAWK, so boring and childish, we're all ‘plastics’ and ‘rent boys’ and they want us to die in car accidents, I couldn't be more glad to be a part of this fan base and not theirs.

    This sums up Tottenham fans for me. And it's not just one or two comments like this, this is the norm on their forum.

Up steps Dave to get the ball from michy and give it to willian while also giving bats a pat on the back.. Good leadership Dave

    What an absolute freak of a game. The quality of our football not being matched by the quality of our finishing. It happens sometimes, but you have to look back at that awful handball decision and it's hard not to think we were completely let down there. Would have been a very different outcome if the officials got that right. Still, you can't defend the wastefulness of our finishing. Costa is capable of so much better, I don't know what's got into him lately. On the plus side, at least we get to raise Spurs' hopes before crushing them again when we lift the trophy in May.

    Complete load of nonsense. It's foolish to try to press Spurs for 90 mins the way we did in the first 15 mins. We'd be spent by the 65 min mark and they'd pick us off. We HAD to counter. Besides, for all the supposed "more offensive" measures they took, how many chances did they create? Apart from the Alli goal, they really didn't create more than us and if they did, maybe by a whisker. Courtois was hardly bothered for much of that spell. Kane's goal was also from a corner. Willian's free kick was from Alderweild taking out Pedro who would have been one on one with Lloris. That isn't a chance to you? Moses would also have either had the opportunity to score or square a pass to Batshuayi if Son didn't bring him down. Stop trying to paint some picture that we virtually parked the bus. Conceding possession does not automatically make the other team "better". Jermaine Jenas is a salty idiot and I'm afraid you've bought his garbage. This was also a cup semi final. Who cares how one team plays? The most important thing is to go through!

    Well yesterday was interesting. My Spud-supporting housemate and I watched the game together at home with our Liverpool-supporting mate. It was tense. He constantly slagged off our players throughout and said our whole team was dirty. But when I mentioned Delle, Vertonghen and Rose as dirty scum he flipped. Told me to f**k off a fair few times (we had had a lot of beer to drink). And when that Hazard goal went in he visibly wilted. I went berserk when Matic scored and he looked close to tears. "This was our one chance to win something" etc etc. But the icing on the cake was when our Liverpool mate opened up a fresh beer, took one sip and said "Ahhh, clean and crisp. Just like Matic's strike." Spuddy stormed out of the room.

    4-0 to Chelsea. Captain Cahill with opener. Diego then scores a hat trick and upon scoring the third runs over to the bench, grabs a bib and throws it at Mourinho for old times sake. Come on Chels!

    Eve all Three little stories about Tammy in last 10 days Brentford (a) Ran his heart out and gave everything in a pitiful team performance - at the end walks over to the away support and mouths 'Sorry' despite personally having nothing to be sorry about Preston (a) The vast majority of the side , not him , down tools on our clueless head coach and capitulate - At the end the Head Coach and players head straight off down the tunnel - Not TA - despite running himself into the ground goes over to away fans and quietly enters the away section and spends some time with , and speaks to , some of the youngsters who idolise him In the week picks up a knock and according to Head Coach is virtually in tears thinking he may miss a vital game today Today - great performance leading the line , another two goals and his usual beaming smile This lad is a total class act as a professional footballer , already , both in his ability and as I keep saying as a man / character, all at 19 yrs old Incredible goal return for a 19'yr old in his first taste of (tough) Senior Football in a disfunctional side (remember he's missed a few games due to an injury too ) So much respect for him Will be gutted to see him go Hes too good for us that's for sure !!!

    Firstly, many congratulations to stuffing the Spuds today. just wishing you all the very best in the run in for the Premier League - nothing would give me greater pleasure than to see the Spuds (and particularly their fans) fail again. Thank you for letting us borrow the trophy for the year - unfortunately you got Kante in return Hope we can do you a big favour by beating the Spuds at our place next month

    Funny how people keep going on about spurs outplaying us including some Chelsea fans, football is about quality of play alongside minimising errors. Spurs may have played the more attractive football but at the same time made more mistakes at vital moments hence we've progressed at there expense. Spurs are having there best season in possibly there whole history especially from a performance perspective & it is no fluke we've beaten them twice, they may have more flair in there play but we clearly have more heart and desire.

    You can be grateful for his earlier performances and still pissed off about how bad and petulant he's been in recent weeks at the same time. It's not a black and white case of supporting him or not supporting him.

    Might be my new favorite Chelsea picture right here. Brings back a lot of memories of the old guard. They done so much for this club, I'll never forget. What an era! I wonder what picture of JT is going to be made into a statue eventually. I mean, we all agree he deserves one, don't we?

    That quote has really been taken out of context, it is a compliment - it's what José has asked from every team he has ever managed. It's what the best sides do, and it certainly doesn't inherently mean a team plays a defensive style. Barca in their pomp under Pep certainly defended with 11 men. Here's another quote from the same interview:

    Every season a team has one game where they dominate and yet lose. That happened to us today. 2nd half, if it was boxing the ref would have stepped in and stopped it we were battering them that badly. Every three years Wilfred Zaha has just one day where he fulfils his God given potential and is the best player in Europe. Better than Hazard, Bale, Ronaldo, Messi. Today was that one day. Next week he will be back to the poor decision making, wildly inconsistent, can't be arsed, player we laugh at for the rest of the time. Today's over. Time to move on.

    Nope. The more annoyed, angry, upset and desperate they get the happier and more satisfied I become. Must comfort them to see a 'plastic' club with 'no history' almost at a 2nd title in 3 years while they have been in a pit of despair for over 10 seasons. Feels pretty good.
