    WC 2018

    Can someone do me a favour and reassure me that Willy Caballero will NOT be our No.2 next season. What a complete liability.

    Ruben Loftus-Cheek

    RLC better than RLC? Hmm, I'm not so sure. Are either of them all that?!! RLC and Mount are different players. BOTH could well make it and as I've said before, although RLC is ahead of Mount in the pecking order right now, IMO it is Mount who will have a better career at CFC.

    Ruben Loftus-Cheek

    Not at all - please give fellow supporters a bit more credit than that.

    Ruben Loftus-Cheek

    This is the thing with RLC and just like @yorkleyblue and @the special one, I'm still not totally convinced. He seems to have all the ingredients to be a top player but all he has shown to date are glimpses. It's a weird situation that on the one hand he is now a Full International and he could cement himself a place in the England Team but on the other hand, many of us are still skeptical. He's a massive unit and earlier in his career he would have used that physical presence as an advantage over the smaller lads. Now he might find his size could hinder him although no doubt all the coaching team and dietitians will be monitoring things closely. But hopefully sooner rather than later we will give him a proper run in the side and it will then be down to him to take that chance and show what he is really capable of because up to now, he's been decent but seems to lack that "WOW Factor".

    You're not a fan then?!!

    Find that hard to believe but if true, whoever it was at Utd who said no, we need to buy that man a drink.

    ........and £60M is £60M so I would let him go regardless.

    Ruben Loftus-Cheek

    Yeah, what have we got to lose - at least have him in the squad. It's not as if he has to play every game and to be honest, I'm not sure he'll ever be a play 90 minutes every week player, but at least we can TRY and make him a fixture in the side. At least until Mount comes along and ousts him from the starting 11, eh @RIP Mourinho

    Yeah, you just can't beat an old-style stadium burger. The ones I remember best were not from The Bridge but when we used to go to the old Wimbledon Stadium to watch Speedway or Stock Car. I can smell / taste the onions now on those burgers and hot dogs - not a bit of damp lettuce in sight and they always taste better at night - especially mixed in with the petrol smell you got at Speedway and banger racing!

    I can already see it now. We sell him to United and just like they did with Matic, all the lazy, robot-pundits have a field day when he has a decent game "Can't understand why Chelsea have again sold one of their best players to a main rival......................". Then they go very quiet when he fades for the remainder of the season.

    I do enjoy a burger - pretty much ANY burger - could live on them to be honest. But give me a good old fashioned plain burger with loads of onions on it in a nice crusty roll, rather than the poncy burgers you get these days full of salad and sh*t in some soft, doughy roll or some fancy thing that costs about 5 times the price!

    Think we have the perfect candidate in Hudson-Odoi.

    Ruben Loftus-Cheek

    He did okay when he came on but "winning England the game" is stretching it a bit!! Also think he could do with shedding a few pounds - he might have been able to keep that other ball in if he was a bit sleeker!

    Don't like the idea of letting United have more of our players, but f**k me, £60M for 30 year old Willian is insane money. Take it before they change their mind. He'll always be one of those "nearly players". Promises so much, but actually delivers little. Got bored with the Brazil game last night but what I saw in the first 45 minutes summed Willian up exactly. Couple of good touches here and there but did very little to worry or trouble the opposition and often too happy to play second fiddle to the bigger names in the team.

    Fixtures 2018/2019

    Everyone does the same - looks to see when the fixtures are against Spurs, Arsenal, Utd, City and Liverpool. Who we play opening day, who we play Boxing Day and New Years Day and f**k to the rest of it!! Some tricky away games second half of the season though. WE'll need to be 15 points + clear at the top by then!
