  1. Thanks YB. Looks like 1st half on the radio and 2nd half TV - if I'm lucky with traffic on journey home!
  2. Vintage Blues pictures and film

    How special was it as a kid to go over the park in your brand new football kit you got for Christmas with a ball like that under your arm. And going to get a new pair of football boots - BLACK of course! To this day, still one of my most memorable Christmas presents must have been about 1973/4, was my first leather football and it was just like that one - black and white panels.
  3. Our Youth on Loan

    Anyone seen a clip of the own goal Dabo scored at the weekend (on loan to Vitess - who else!). 35 yard wonder goal - not quite sure how he managed it!
  4. Eden Hazard

    It is very rare for Top players like Hazard to stay at one club for a long time. He could make a sh*t load of money from signing on deals etc + he might be bothered by criticism that could come his way for not trying a new challenge. Hope yopur are right that he is happy and will stay for a while yet but I do fear him moving on and I think PSG would be just as likely as Madrid.
  5. Add Moyes to that. It does amaze me how a manager can go from bad to worse, get sacked by one club and then another Board have a meeting and say "hmmm, that (insert name) has done a sh*t job at (insert club) but I think he may just be the guy to turn things around for us". And then they wonder why he's sh*t for them too!!
  6. Alvaro Morata

    I have been critical of Morata since he signed for us - mainly that run of games where he just kept falling on his arse and didn't look that bothered. But his class is starting to show in bundles and he's getting better by the game and forming a great relationship with Hazard, so will happily take any criticism back if he carries on like this.
  7. Michy Batshuayi to Chelsea

    Let's hope he's back to the Salah you describe come Saturday! It's a tough call as I am a huge advocate of bringing some of the youth players players through - at least having them on the bench to give a try, so on that basis we shouldn't be signing the likes of Salah (and before that Marin and Oscar). That said, it's hard to argue he wouldn't be a handy option to have right now - would certainly take him ahead of Willian.
  8. I am expecting a 2015/16 season repeat again

    Where's this clown gone last few weeks? Must have crawled back into his padded cell.
  9. Ruben Loftus-Cheek

    Shame he couldn't have put in a good performance against Brazil - would have done wonders for him. John Barnes whole career was largely based on one good performance and memorable goal against Brazil!!
  10. Our new technical director is...

    God, No Thanks. I hear he's gonna be busy in the jungle for a few weeks anyway.
  11. Think you need to go and have a lie down!!
  12. Was referring to DB's comments re Lewis Baker, as this is the Lewis Baker thread!!
  13. Most hated opposition

    When I was in my 20's and went to games regularly it was without doubt, Sp*rs, West Ham, Arsenal, Leeds and Millwall. Nowadays, it is still the two North London clubs + Liverpool and since Jose went there, Man Utd. Don't really hate them - they are the ones I love us to win.
  14. World Cup 2018 Qualifiers

    Have to disagree Yorkley, if every time the ball hit an arm / hand in the box it meant penalty, players will start deliberately aiming the ball for a players arm / hand. Last night's was a complete joke of a decision - it was point blank travelling at about 100mph and it hit him on the shoulder. The ref should hang his head in shame.
  15. Ruben Loftus-Cheek

    Yes, if he's watching (and I'm sure he will be) and Rueben has a good game, that will hopefully put an end to the speculation that we are still interested in Barkley.
