  1. The thing I'm probably happiest about this game is that Chelsea allowed Tomori and Mount both to play. Playing against their parent club will give them a great feeling and if they perform, could well plant a seed into Sarri's brain for next season.
  2. I'd go with a near full rotation for this and make sure we hammer Palace on Sunday. Big Willy Zappa Christensen Cahill Emerson RLC Cesc Kovacic Moses Giroud Odoi Subs: Kepa Dave Rudi Kante Willian Pedro Morata
  3. Must win game to keep pace with the top teams. Never an easy or enjoyable trip this so hopefully we pull a master class out of the fire and win. Spurs v City means one of our rivals are dropping points so winning is vital. Kepa Azp Rudi Luiz Alonso Kante Jorginho Kovacic Pedro Morata Hazard
  4. Its far too early to be drinking. :o
  5. Just on the Mourinho thing. He can pretty much go f**k himself. He cant expect respect for all hes said about Chelsea since hes taken over Utd, whats embarrassing is that Chelsea fans are backing him up or are still loyal to him. I used to love JM but even towards the end of his 2nd term he was a pale shadow of the guy who won over people with his charm and wit, instead replaced by a broken, insecure man who at any opportunity has to remind us what he won while Chelsea manager. Looking at a few Utd forums too or Utd supporting buddies, those idiots are fully behind JM too, like we were before, not being able to see the wood from the trees with JM is seriously dangerous as Utd are now defending him as if hes won 3 PLs with them. I for one hope JM stays at Utd for a long time because theyre going nowhere fast under him and spending millions every year. I used to love JM, I used to have respect for him but hes far too petty and bitter now a days, hes like an ex who never fully moves on with life trying to drag you down and backwards while you're trying to better yourself and move on from the toxic relationship you once had.

    A new striker in January.

    Its pathetic that the club only went into the 2018 season with 2 senior CFs, we should have kept Tammy or Michy for options. At this rate I'd bin Morata, hes had his go and hes been w**k. I'd give Michy a go but in 12 months time we'll be looking to replace him too.
  7. I think Ampadu and Odoi are both injured, Sarri mentioned Odoi in his Man Utd press conference as having an injury. I reckon we'll see Kepa Zappa Christensen Cahill Emerson Kante Cesc RLC Moses Morata Pedro
  8. We're going to win this game. They've won 3 PL games at the bridge in 20 years and one of them was a con job by Clattenburg where Torres was wrongfully sent off. Jose and this Utd squad dont have a player that can stop Hazard in the mood hes in, last year, an out of sorts Hazard tore them to bits at Wembley, this Hazard is considerably more dangerous and in form and lets face, that game where Herrera shut him down was a once off from the little Spanish c**t, I hate Herrera more than any current Utd player as he acts the hard man, kicking players around the pitch but as soon as hes touched, he goes down like hes been shot. Utd have a threat, they've got quality players but Jose isnt half the man he used to be and he only knows one way to setup against an attacking, free flowing side and thats firmly parking the bus, hoping to nick a goal from a set piece or counter and giving up 60/65% of the ball. Chelsea 3-1 is what I'd guess.
  9. I still reckon we'll win the league. If and its a massive if, Morata or Giroud can chip in with 15 PL goals it will go a long way to lifting the pressure on Hazard. As it stands, were comfortably better than Spurts and Utd and not far off City. We're on par with Pool, if not better as individuals across the pitch in some areas and arsenal have had a great run since they lost to us and City back to back. The back line is still an issue but with us having nearly 65/70% of the ball every game, we should create more chances than we give up, even against Pool we were comfortable until the out of the blue strike form Sturridge.
  10. It could be worse, you could be Irish. I usually go to all home games but its not worth it now with the amount of sh*t football that Martin O'Neill and Roy Keane serve up. I, and any Irish Chelsea fan I know, count down the days for the real football to come back and not to be subjected to 90mins of hoof ball. :o
  11. I think we'll be o, im just more annoyed we spent 12 hours in Greece we could have used being home working on the game plan for this game. They already lost to Pool 4-0 (a), Bournemouth 2-1 (h), Arsenal 3-1 (a), Wolves 1-0 (h). They manage to take the lead in the Arsenal and Bournemouth games too, they've not really leaked goals in their losses but the old fella is fairly confident they'll roll over if Chelsea score early, I hope thats exactly what happens TBH. :o
  12. The old fella is a Hammers fan so will head out for the game, not looking forward to it as we've a mixed bag of results and performances when we play their lot away. Factor in the delayed flight and I'm nervous as hell, the only saving grace is they beat Everton to finally claim points last weekend, that should lift some pressure on them and they wont be as desperate for points against us. I predict another 2-0 win anyway with us having 65/70% of the ball and being frustrated for 70+ mins as West Ham park the bus, heading into the Pool game with 6 wins is a must as they'll likely tonk Southampton at Anfield by 3 or 4.

    How should we treat the Europa league?

    I reckon for the next game against Vidi we could rack up a 5+ score line, even if we play some youths. I do hope that Ampadu and Odoi play that game as its at the Bridge and the "hostile" Greek atmosphere cant be used as an excuse as to why Sarri didnt even bring either to the bench.

    How should we treat the Europa league?

    I think we should treat this as if it was the CL and go out to win it but rotate until we get to the KOs. If we finish 2nd, 3rd or 4th in the PL we'll end up, more likely than not in Pot 2, I cant see us going into Pot 3 but its possible as we're ranked 20th in UEFAs club rankings. The CL and EL winners go into Pot 1 along with the the Top 6 Leagues winners, if a league winner is also a winner of the CL/EL, another country will get a Pot 1 spot so we could be pushed out to Pot 3. Thats why I'd be looking to win the EL as it guarantees us a Pot 1 draw which we wont get unless we win the PL.
  15. It shows how much good will and anticipation that Sarri has built up around Chelsea that the fans are looking forward to a Thursday night trip to the back arse of Greece with potentially half a dozen changes. Hopefully its not too taxing and the players and the fans get out of this with a win and an easy trip home. Would love to see Ampadu and Odoi start, I reckon Ampadu will but Moses and Willian will start over Odoi but I'd be in favour of playing Moses and Odoi, keep Pedro and Willian for the bench in case it goes t*ts up.
