  1. Antonio Conte - Now Officially Manager

    In a season of "gloom and doom", with the whole squad out of form, with loads of matches and a "small squad", we're in 3rd spot, only 3 points off 2nd ... and but for 3 stupid and avoidable losses we're not far off City, who are currently on track to break all sorts of top division records in a pretty freak year. It's small margins don't you think ? Plus we're also in the knock out stages of the CL, and still in both domestic cups. Big Picture Ernie !
  2. Antonio Conte - Now Officially Manager

    It is only on the pitch that we have to be competitive, and we are. We don't have to compete in the Manchester/Liverpool competition to waste the most money on transfer fees and wages for overpriced footballers ! Much to admire in our club's stance on this ... much to laugh at in the desperation of our rivals ... Three years in a row the PL title has been won through hard work and team work on the pitch rather than spending the most money off it.
  3. Top marks for Conte today - pretty much got everything right, and nice to see him enjoying the win with the crowd at the end ! Shame we didn't get to see Barkley. I think he would have come on had Christensen not needed replacing early in the 2nd half.
  4. Peter Crouch

    Sad to see how far The Telegraph has fallen ... flirting with Daily Mail territory now ...
  5. Alvaro Morata

    Drogs only scored more than 12 PL goals in a season twice in his eight seasons with us ... and had 10 in 26 games in his first season. Alvaro has 10 in 18+2 games in his first season so far ... :)
  6. Alvaro Morata

    Morata copping an awful lot of flak on here for diving, but he is a rank amateur compared to what Drogba used to do ...
  7. Alexis Sanchez

    The fees all these "super" agents seem to get for f**k all actual work are just ridiculous, and the clubs that agree to pay them are crazy. And Sanchez must be right up there in the ultimate list of football mercenaries. The financials of this deal, especially for a 29 year old, are insane and will cause no end of problems for United in the dressing room, which is one good thing I suppose. The Sun ran this stat last March which showed that Arsenal do better when Sanchez is out of the team then when he is in it. With any luck that stat will transfer to United as well. United must be really desperate for a new left back ... :-)
  8. Quadruple is still on !! Onwards and upwards ...
  9. Ah .. the magic of the Cup ...
  10. I reckon Bakayoko will miss the actual ball ...
  11. You just KNOW that Morata is going to miss his penalty if we get to that point ...
  12. He's obviously decided that Willian was going down even before the contact ... possibly right ...
  13. Surprised that he took Ampadu off. Given our recent lack of goals, I would have thought it was more beneficial to give Musonda a few minutes.
  14. Batshuayi had a bit of swagger and strut when he first came here ... he looks like a startled rabbit in the headlights now ... he's lost all his confidence.
  15. Thought we might kick on after finally scoring a goal, but we've been pants since taking the lead LOL. Time for a substitution please Antonio.
  16. Not often you see a whole squad out of form at the same time ... biggest test of Conte's managerial career ?
  17. 9 changes but at least he's put a few decent options on the bench this time ... Bakayoko in the shop window perhaps ?
  18. Nah ... I'm still very confident that we will finish ahead of Manchester United :)
  19. Antonio Conte - Now Officially Manager

    Most odd that the man who got everything right last season is getting everything so spectacularly wrong this season. Personally, I don't buy the summer/winter transfer activity and extra games as any kind of excuse for what we are seeing on the pitch at the moment.
  20. Following Our Nearest & Dearest Rivals, 2017/2018

    A 1-0 home win AET for Bristol City will see them through on away goals ... they definitely have a chance ... albeit not one I'd bet on LOL.
  21. Following Our Nearest & Dearest Rivals, 2017/2018

    1-0 at Half Time. We'll give you the benefit of the doubt that you meant Bristol and not Manchester ... :)
  22. Marcos Alonso signs for Chelsea.

    You've only got to see the pigs ear that others have made of the LWB position to appreciate what Alonso does in that role ...
  23. Antonio Conte - Now Officially Manager

    I hope the media latch on to "the little one" or "the small one" ... quite the come down from "the special one" LOL. Masterful stuff from Antonio ...
  24. Following Our Nearest & Dearest Rivals, 2017/2018

    So that's Sparky done at Stoke then ...
  25. Tiémoué Bakayoko

    Bakayoko strikes me as the sort of player who would struggle to score more than one on keepy ups ...
