  1. Willian

    His body language has really really diminished. Does not look like the old Willian.
  2. Feeling bad for the baggers now.. harsh call.
  3. Stadium looking mint! Atmosphere sounds immense. Props to the Azerbaijanis
  4. Think we played with those three up front 3 or 4 occasions in my memory all with solid victories. The details are escaping me right now, but I have really positive memories of it.
  5. I hear ya Valerie!!! I'm personally really looking forward to the kick off time, it's a whole new strange world of not having any time between work and game.
  6. My thoughts exactly. We don't need to go starting Hudson Odoi but certainly a game for a few players that have lost their spot in the team of late.
  7. David Luiz back at Chelsea

    The Matic one. And we aren't a stepping stone, certainly not in England, the trophies will attest to that and if players want marketing fame/Real Madrid over us then that is their personal choice and I wouldn't not have that player for 3,4, 5 years because of that. We saw Matic as surplus once, so it goes both ways. I'll wait to see if Pogba has any more influence on the game in the next couple of years because of Matic, I don't really see it happening but we shall see.
  8. World Cup 2018 Qualifiers

    Anyone try and get WC tickets? How did you go? I went in the first ballot but didn't get any. Then did the first come first served phase yesterday morning, tried to get follow Australia tickets also follow England tickets but both options were not working (I presume this was because they were already gone) so I just randomly picked some cities and will be at the mercy of the draw.

  9. David Luiz back at Chelsea

    Player power hasn't won in this example though. Club and player equally happy to part ways. You'll probably point out Antonio wasn't happy with it, but the club as a whole were keen to not see us fall to stagnant and have an eye on the future. A good balancing and compromise in my eyes. Rotting on the bench doesn't help the club at all, let alone the player himself and I don't think we (or any club) should deliberately kill players seasons. It's a bit sad from a wider footballing family point of view. It doesn't look good for other players who may come in and not enjoy playing for us for any reason as well. The Dembele and Modric situations are entirely different as they were only going to improve (personally and for us as a team). A better example would be us selling Hazard to any of our rival English teams, which we won't.
  10. David Luiz back at Chelsea

    I'm more relaxed about it than you and most. I don't think anyone we have sold them has made them stronger than us and subsequently our acquisition of players with presumably some of that money has been far superior (if we are talking what the team needs and not what the marketing department wants). Edit: For the record I think David Luiz would absolutely make them stronger and I'm not suggesting we sell him to them at all. But the players we have sold have been in decline.

    Why not? It's worked well in the past selling them our left overs, nice little earner.
  12. World Cup 2018 Qualifiers

    What did you think of the game? I was personally thoroughly unimpressed. Great result though.
  13. World Cup 2018 Qualifiers

    Ahh good shout. Always loved seeing their three piece designer suit compared to everyone else.
