  1. Some Utd fans seem to think he is one of the best defenders in the league. On redcafe, they have a thread titled "Forget about Last year, is Phil Jones the best defender in the league?" or something to that effect. Hilarious really
  2. I think he did so because of our recent troubles. He got the impression that they could beat us if they went for it, and that turned out to be a blessing in disguise for us. We may have struggled more against a parked bus.

    Agreed. The Burnley, and especially Palace results were very infuriating. We would have been second without those horrific results. Regardless of our injury situation, we should have beaten Palace as they are absolutely sh*te. Anyways, I hope Conte stays and builds a lasting legacy.
  4. Emanalo The Problem

    You guys seen this? https://weaintgotnohistory.sbnation.com/2017/11/7/16617832/chelsea-fc-michael-emenalo-marina-granovskaia-everton-ross-barkley-antonio-conte-rumour-report Don't know how true it is, but if it indeed is true, I honestly don't know what to make of it. It would be a good thing if it means Conte gets more say in transfer dealings. Otherwise, it would be absolutely bizarre, as I would have thought the position would have gone to someone with a football/coaching background. Interesting times ahead.
  5. Antonio Conte - Now Officially Manager

    Amazing, isn't it? For all our troubles, we are only 1 point behind the incredible Man U and Spurs. I will be shocked if he is sacked, but this is Chelsea, so you never know. We seriously need some stability and I think he is the right man to provide it. I am pleased he is showing the players who is boss and hope the club back him, but I am not holding my breath.

    Do you want a f**king medal? Jeez, a lot of people agreed with you on the thread, but this gloating is just stupid, to say the least.

    Also, about half of that money went to replacing Costa and Matic. We didn't strengthen the team and didn't address our weak areas, especially the wing backs. Overall, I think we are weaker this season than last, and to make matters worse, some of our rivals have improved. I expected this season to be tough, and so far it's proving to be so. I hope we can make Top 4.
  8. The last 25 or so minutes were a bit stressful, but overall, a comfortable victor even though we should have scored more. I absolutely love Conte. Top notch manager without the baggage. Hope we continue on this trajectory. I wasn't very confident of a title challenge going into the season, but if we continue this way, we may be up there or thereabouts at the end of the season. Bring on Qarabag

    Not giving any credence to the rumors, but I wonder why these rumors persist. Surely not all of the stories are made up? Call me naive, but I don't buy into the notion that the media are trying to destabilize Chelsea. I will be very shocked if the club let Conte go. You would expect both parties to be reasonable enough to find a way forward on any disagreements, but you never know with Chelsea.

    I am also worried about the season. I don't think the team is good enough to go deep in the Champions League and don't see who we can realistically bring in to strengthen it. Also, the squad is very thin. However, I think Conte is a genius, and if the board listens to him and gets him some of the players he wants, we may still do well. I don't expect us to challenge for the title, but neither do I expect us to be 2015/16 bad either. We should be able to make Top 4.
  11. Following Our Nearest & Dearest Rivals, 2015/2016

    It's weird seeing City look more solid defensively than us. They also know how to pass the ball very well and create lots of chances. Barring serious injuries, I think they will win the league.
  12. Eva Carneiro

    You don't create siege mentality by throwing your own people under the bus. This whole incident is very unfortunate. Jose implying that Hazard was feigning injury makes it no better. Even if the doctors were wrong, there was no need to express his grievance in public. The club really has to learn how to handle bad results without generating negative press, as has mostly been the case.
  13. Welcome Loic Remy

    People keep making these kinds of posts. The fact that he has won several trophies doesn't always make him right. And no, he is not kind of like God. He has made several awful signings (SWP, Sidwell, Cuadrado, etc) and let players like KDB leave. Did he have a plan when he bough Salah too?
  14. Welcome Loic Remy

    Yeah, playing Drogha ahead of him was totally unacceptable. Remy has every right and reason to seek a move. It wouldn't surprise me one bit if Falcao gets games ahead of him.
  15. Welcome Loic Remy

    Correct! Drogba was ahead of him in the pecking order, which I found very strange.
