  1. Welcome Ross Barkley

    Keep forgetting we've even got him to be honest. This is one to add to the list of "Wait until next season when he's got a decent pre-season under his belt..............................!!"
  2. Thibaut Courtois

    Think it is almost certain that he will go to Madrid in the Summer, unless they could prize De Gea away from Utd, as De Gea is clearly the better keeper. Have to admit at being disappointed overall with Courtois. Think we did the correct thing in replacing Cech when we did as Courtois is a decent keeper and was the right age but he hasn't lived up to expectations and doesn't compare to Big Pete at his peak. I wonder if there is any truth in the rumour that we got rid of KDB because of Courtois relationship with KDB's girlfriend? I know they play for Belgium together but perhaps Mourinho did think he couldn't keep both and Courtois was more important? Anyway, I expect him to go and if it is Madrid we should get big £££ so wonder who we'll go for to replace him?
  3. Stop trying to get us all worried!! Conte will not want to lose to old miserable bollocks so surely he knows he CANNOT play Bakayoko (or Cahill).
  4. What TV Show Are You Waarching?

    Anyone catch any of The Brits last night? The Mrs and daughter were watching it and I caught a bit before I took to bed for an early night - What A Load Of sh*te!! Shows your age when so many of the acts / artists mean absolutely nothing to you. And the acceptance speaches were some of the most cringe-worthy I have seen / heard. And even someone I am a fan of, Damon Albarn (Chelsea Fan) made a fool of himself with his drunken anti-brexit speach
  5. Think that's a bit of an exaggeration! He had the one in the first half where he sliced the ball and it went out for a corner and then 2nd half, the bad mistake which led to the Barca equiliser. Other than that, he was good and calm but I guess that was probably the biggest and most important game of his career to date, so it's no wonder there were nerves. Think we have to accept that a young player like Christensen WILL make mistakes - same with Ampadu when he plays. All a learning process and it's always gonna happen - just unfortunate hat last night it cost us. Senior pro's still make the same mistakes - Pedro in the first half last night did pretty much the same thing and a couple of games back Moses header put an opponent clean through.
  6. Can't fault that display - was Proud of the team last night. Gutted we're not taking a 1-0 to the Nou Camp, but 1-1 is not the end of the world. Conte obviously deliberated over that line-up and lost a lot of sleep! Hard to argue with it although I do think we'd have got a lot more out of Hazard if he had played Morata or Giroud instead of Pedro. But no complaints and it would be great to end that record of games unbeaten at the Nou Camp in 3 weeks time.
  7. Your unpopular opinion about Chelsea

    If I had a list of CFC legends, then without doubt that list would be headed by JT, Lamps, Drogba & Cech. Not just because they were brilliant for us but they were the spine of our most successful team and were with us for a long time. But if I was making a list of the best footballers I have ever seen play for Chelsea, then Hazard would be top of the list. I guess it's subjective to whatever "floats your boat", but what Hazard can do with a football at his feet, very few can do at the top level.
  8. Your unpopular opinion about Chelsea

    Like Lamps, Wisey was a bit of a slow starter at Chelsea. Can remember watching him for Wimbledon and then we signed him I was really excited as I was hoping he might be our new Pat Nevin but then being really disappointed as he rarely seemed to go past his man in those early days. But as you say, like JT, Wisey wasn't just about the player, but the captain and his influence on the team and another example of a player hated by rival fans!!
  9. Your unpopular opinion about Chelsea

    Yep, I remember both of his good games.
  10. Your unpopular opinion about Chelsea

    There's a big difference in listing a top 10 Chelsea players as opposed to who are actually the best footballers. The likes of JT, Drogs, Lamps are club legends and huge personalities but none of them can come close to what Hazard can do with a football and they'd all be the first to admit it. Hazard is a better natural footballer than all of them and as for Wisey, again great for what he did at Chelsea but you wouldn't find the likes of Real Madrid looking to sign him!!
  11. Great stuff. Perfect scenario to now give Hudson-Adoi at least 45 minutes.
  12. Really can't see Conte risking him in such a big game as this when his form is so woeful and his confidence is on the floor. I pray he doesn't play.
  13. Yep, that would be the starting line-up I would be happiest to see.
  14. Cesc Fabregas

    You know when I typed that, I did have Mount at the back of my mind!! As I've posted elsewhere, I do have hopes for him and he has looked very good at youth / reserve level but I must admit to not really knowing how he has been performing at Vitesse and of course, we have been there before with McEachran! As he is only 19, it would be a lot to ask for him to step-up so think we really need an established player, mid 20's and hope Mount could be eased in.
  15. the return of partridge....

    Do love a bit of Partridge. although haven't seen everything. One of my favourites / most memorable is I think one of the mid-morning matters series, where they do a prank call on him making out it's he's getting done for tax evasion. The bit where he completely loses it and has a go at his sidekick.........."If you EVER, EVER................" Brilliant.
