  1. Antonio Conte - Now Officially Manager

    Lining up in a 3-4-1-2, I give you a team totally made up of players that have joined our squad since Conte was appointed coach ... it looks like a pretty decent line up to me, so I don't buy all this dialogue about the board being sh*t at transfers and handing Conte a squad full of crap ... Caballero Rudiger, Luiz, Christensen Zappacosta, Kante, Drinkwater/Bakayoko, Emerson/Alonso Barkley Morata, Giroud
  2. Hopefully some of them will actually get an extended chance ... every time a young player does something decent or semi-decent in the first team they seem to get dropped or loaned out almost immediately. This seaon's obvious examples : Musonda had that delightful assist against Brighton and then next breath he's gone to Celtic. CHO had that lovely little cameo and then hasn't been seen since .... and pre-injury, Ampadu got way fewer chances than he deserved given that he looked class every time he was on the pitch ... most odd way to develop talent ...
  3. Alvaro Morata

    I think there is a tendency to be a bit too misty eyed for Costa, and a bit too critical of Morata. If you compare their PL stats, there really isn't an awful lot to separate them, especially if you take the last two seasons Costa was with us ... Source: Squawka Comparison Matrix.
  4. Antonio Conte - Now Officially Manager

    One thing I am curious about is why it took Conte 100 PL games in charge of us to try starting with two strikers ... especially this season when his preferred formation has been found wanting. Harry Kane alone has had 168 shots on goal this season for his 27 PL goals. Morata, Batshuayi, Giroud and Hazard all put together have had 169 (for 29 goals) ... we've just been too negative with the tactics all year, especially at home.
  5. RIP Roy Bentley

    RIP Roy Bentley ... need to win the FA Cup for him and Ray :)
  6. Ethan Ampadu

    So the Tribunal has ruled that it's £2.5m max for Ethan, plus 20% of any sell on fee. £1.3m now and up to another £1.2m based on appearances. Good result for us !
  7. RIP Ray Wilkins

    Enjoy ... 18-year old Ray Wilkins interviewed at around the 7'42" mark .. A couple of fabulous passes in the actual match as well ... spent most of the 80s telling anyone who would listen that it was Manchester United that turned Ray into the "crab". At CFC he was a brilliant attacking midfielder who scored plenty of goals. Still can't believe he has left us ...
  8. Antonio Rudiger

    And the players are dead right as well PL games this season in which we have scored 2+ goals : P16 W14 D1 L1 F47 A14. When we have scored <=1 goal per PL game: P17 W4 D5 L8 F10 A19. Blindingly obvious that an attacking strategy that gets you two goals minimum per game yields better results than sitting back and inviting pressure on your own goal.
  9. 27 goals now this season between our strikers ... seeing as we only play with one, that is really not a bad return. If we had one guy who'd played all the time, and he was on 27 goals, we'd probably all think that was decent ...
  10. So, do we still want Bruce Buck to fire Conte on a staircase somewhere deep in St Mary's ?
  11. FT. Easy 3 points
  12. Told you ! .... tactical masterstroke ... play the game arse about face ... Southampton lulled into false sense of security LOL LOL LOL .... :)
  13. 2-0 ... deary me ... and it's Pedro and Giroud on to save the game ... LOL.
  14. At least Conte has varied the tactics today ... lulling Southampton into a false sense of security by having our usual sh*t second half ... but this time in the first half ...
  15. RIP Ray Wilkins

    Oh this is awful news .... RIP Ray ... had him plastered all over my bedroom wall when I was a kid ... any pic any size that I could find in Shoot! magazine and the papers. Met him at the English Hickory Open last year (vintage golf tournament with antique wooden shafted clubs). Lovely bloke ... I was embarrassingly tongue-tied for a 50 year old man meeting his boyhood hero. I think a little bit of all Chelsea fans has died today ... condolences to friends and family. CFC Forever ...
