  1. Getting in nice and early with the crystal ball. Here's hoping for a big win to keep up the recent good form. Predictions are: Chelsea (4-1-3-2): Beeney; Moses, Aké, Davey (c), Alonso; Kanté; Pedro, Matić, Willian; Batshuayi, Hazard Subs: Courtois, Aina, Luiz, Terry, Fábregas, Loftus-Cheek, Kenedy Prediction: Chelsea 1-0 Crystal Palace (Willian) So, for the first time since Mourinho was here in his first spell (2006-07 I think), we play a 4-1-3-2 formation. Mitchell Beeney gets another run, while Alex Davey captains from central defence. Willian wins the game with his third goal in four crystal ball matches, yet another 1-0 win. Come on, Blues!
  2. What a performance, lads. It was clear what Stoke's intentions were and we just didn't stoop to its level. So many contributors yet again. P.S. I knew the crystal ball would finally (sort of) come good! It's now predicted three out of the past four results, score-wise! Once again, boys...
  3. After predicting the right score against Manchester United, the crystal ball is full of itself for this one. I had to remind it that it still failed miserably when it came to the players, formation and scorer. Naturally, it responded by being as outrageous as ever: Chelsea (3-4-3): Beeney; Luiz, Zouma, Aké; Moses, Kanté, Fábregas, Pedro; Hazard, Batshuayi, Loftus-Cheek (c) Subs: Courtois, Aina, Cahill, Azpilicueta, Chalobah, Alonso, Solanke Prediction: Stoke City 1-2 Chelsea (Loftus-Cheek 2) Three crucial points thanks to captain Loftus-Cheek netting his fourth and fifth goals respectively in this one. Mitchell Beeney gets his chance here, despite a Courtois being on the bench. I like the subs lineup, particularly because it reads C A C A C A, not even on purpose either, just down to players in their position order. Solanke rounds off the bench. Come on, lads!
  4. Who, in your opinion, would be your first five in a penalty shootout? Not just for an FA Cup or EFL Cup game...but if it came down to it, who would you want to win you the Champions League? For me, these five would get the job done? 1. Pedro 2. Luiz 3. Fábregas 4. Hazard 5. Costa Not all that dissimilar in terms of the type of players from the Munich five, apart from Hazard taking Cole's spot...but that's who I would trust to win us Ole Big Ears if we had the chance next season.
  5. Crystal ball here, guys: Chelsea (4-2-4): Courtois; Moses, N. Chalobah (c), Suljic, Alonso; Kanté, Fábregas; Pedro, Costa, Batshuayi, Hazard Subs: Beeney, Luiz, Zouma, Azpilicueta, Matić, Willian, Kenedy Prediction: Chelsea 1-0 Manchester United (Willian) For the second match in a row in crystal ball land, Willian nets the only goal to get the win. That takes him to six, according to the ball. Nathaniel Chalobah captains from centre back and is partnered by debutant Ali Suljic. Apart from those two, it's exactly the same team that faced West Ham United (albeit with a different formation). I've got a question for the ball myself this week. With the back four, I ask just what the hell is going to happen to every single player capable of playing centre back in the first team over the next few days?
  6. Here are the crystal ball predictions for this match: Chelsea (4-2-3-1): Begović; Moses, Luiz, Terry (c), Alonso; Fábregas, N. Chalobah; Willian, Kenedy, Hazard; Batshuayi Subs: Eduardo, Cahill, Zouma, Azpilicueta, Aké, Matić, Kanté Prediction: West Ham United 0-1 Chelsea (Willian) Willian scores his fifth of the crystal ball season to beat West Ham. There's another change in formation, Conte going with a 4-2-3-1 lineup. Kenedy gets a surprise start, while there's a very defensive bench, with no recognised striker. Huge game this one. Really would like the three points cause it's West Ham. Come on, Blues!
  7. The score was right! Very nearly scorers too. Everything else not even close...but this is the first time the crystal ball has predicted the right score! Great win, lads! We deserved the three points.
  8. Gotta love Stan Collymore having a go at Hazard and Rooney for not showing loyalty. Here's a guy who played for 10 different clubs, not once making 100 or more appearances for any of them, talking about loyalty. Ha ha.
  9. If it was my personal opinion, I'd be better off in a straightjacket. Let's go with "some sort of Paul the Octopus thingy"
  10. Have to say I agree. It reminds me of the loyalty argument. So many fans and pundits bang on about how there is no loyalty left in football, then they go and criticise players who don't celebrate after scoring against their old clubs. I know it has barely anything to do with your point...I just like it when people point out the "damned-if-you-do-damned-if-you-don't" narratives from some people in football. It's almost as if they make up their opinions with the benefit of hindsight! (No, surely not)
  11. This week's crystal ball is here. The predictions are: Chelsea (4-1-4-1): Begović; Azpilicueta, Cahill (c), Luiz, Pedro; Fábregas; Moses, Kanté, Hazard, Willian; Costa Subs: Beeney, Aina, Zouma, Aké, Chalobah, Alonso, Batshuayi Prediction: Chelsea 3-1 Swansea City (Costa, Moses, Fábregas) I'll keep this one short by saying...yep, I'd take that. Costa, Moses and Fábregas (his first in crystal ball land) are on target in a convincing home performance. Wins are what we need and I think we'll get one this week. KTBFFH!
  12. If Conte really did everything the crystal ball said he would do, we'd think he'd been hanging out with Mark Bosnich and Adrian Mutu all season
  13. The crystal ball is saying progress in the FA Cup, at the expense of Wolverhampton Wanderers. Here are the predictions: Chelsea (3-4-3): Courtois; Azpilicueta, Luiz, Aké; Moses, Matić, N. Chalobah (c), Aina; Pedro, Costa, Hazard Subs: Begović, Cahill, Willian, Fábregas, Kanté, Loftus-Cheek, Alonso Prediction: Wolverhampton Wanderers 1-2 Chelsea (Alonso 2) Alonso comes off the bench to put the Blues through. The ball says three changes for this match. I would say, given that there is a week off for the squad after, that some fans would actually be happy with this 11 for once. Well done, ball. Not bad.
  14. When Sky was discussing the Wenger situation, I did enjoy hearing Carragher say there's things he likes about Arsenal and things he doesn't about Chelsea, then going on to compliment our ruthlessness at the club. I liked the line "we don't accept second best". It made me see sackings from a different perspective. People don't like it when we hire and fire the way we do, especially the likes of Ancelotti, Mourinho, Di Matteo. Many of our fans hate it too...but we can't deny our club's mentality and ideologies are more successful and, therefore for me, better than the likes of Arsenal's. We will never get love from these sorts of pundits and media personalities, Carragher included...but it's damn nice to see a bit of respect.
