  1. Gawd, Middlesboro were terrible though. A really scratchy win that was. Everton and West Brom, both away are tough on paper. I know Everton have been flying at home but, against West Ham, there were truly awful. Maybe they've subconsciously given up on Europe? West Brom have nothing to play for and could be vulnerable at home, losing there last two. Our three home games are against Middlesboro (not a matter of if we win but how many goals we score), Watford who are safe and were beaten 2-0 by ten man Hull last time and Sunderland, who are mentally destroyed and knew ages ago they were down. 9 points there. Now Tottenham have Man. Utd. at home (a point a piece there) and Leicester away, a tricky match, the result of which depends if Leicester are absolutely safe by the time they meet. Personally, I don't see Spurs losing to West Ham, who sh*t bricks whoever they play at the Olympic Stadium and Arsenal, although Arsenal will be much more comfortable being the counter attacking team. Never that much between the teams, over the years at White Hart Lane.
  2. Next time you post, leave a copy on my desk so I can correct it. He puts in half a game in four months so all is forgiven? Not by me. No doubt he'll be a permanent fixture until the end of the season, now that he's finally located the back of the net, so let's see if he can carry on what he's being paid to do, starting with an away day against Everton.
  3. The problem I have with Costa is that he's employed by Chelsea Football Club, is supposed to be the Club's No.1 striker but as been a pile of dung since the January transfer window. His first touch has been dire and he's spent more time on his arse remonstrating with the referee than on his feet. "Crap for a week?" I suggest you check your calendar more often.
  4. Hardly an assist was it? More like an off load to Hazard because 'I'm surrounded by three defenders and I'm buggered, see what little you can make of this". And of course, the Magician obliged. Costa was poor in the first half.
  5. Conte seemed very annoyed at Fabregas's advice to Hazard that he should be more "selfish" in the penalty box. As such, I don't think Fabregas will start tonight although I do see his point. Hazard has been doing his best to set up Costa for tap ins, but Costa has let him down.
  6. The team should be banished if they don't get three points against the Saints. They are on 40 points which means they can't get relegated and Europe is out of the question. They were p***ed upon by City at home with Shane Long having a row on the line, after being brought on as substitute, being substituted himself!
  7. Conte will be under pressure to keep Ake on the left, after his performance against Spurs. Interesting that Conte blamed himself for the loss against United in the post match interviews, at no time referring to the stomach bug that swept through the team. This came out in the press the following day. Possibly he was thinking that he should never have played Cahill (Ake the obvious alternative) and Moses, who were clearly under the weather as well as a few others who were unusually quiet.
  8. Mourinho was caught on CCTV purchasing packets of Ex -Lax at a West London chemist
  9. I suppose Costa must have been ill, as he spent more time on his arse than his feet
  10. We could have had Dembele for buttons when he was at Fulham. Someone at the club didn't recognise his talent and passed him over.
  11. Without Kante's industry and desire, we would have been in deeper trouble. By far our best player on the day.
  12. I thought we played like a team that is feeling the pressure. Even Conte was subdued in the technical area. Lately, it's like playing with ten men with Costa in the team. He's a complete waste of space. If Conte has no confidence in the ability of Batshiuyi, I'd rather have Loftus -Cheek playing as a number 9 than that sloth. This kid is a similar player to Rashford, has a physical presence, has far more pace and has an eye for goal, he needs a proper chance to start rather than being brought on a couple of minutes before the end
  13. The 1965-66 F A Cup semi final against Sheff. Wed. at Villa Park. We ran out in this Inter Milan kit while Wednesday had their mundane stripes and looked like a pub team. We looked a million dollars but played like a million lira. I've never been so disappointed, especially when Jim McCalliog, an ex Blue, scored in the last minute.
  14. Bournemouth are in good heart so it will be interesting how they approach this game. At Liverpool, the two strikers pressed high but, after getting the first goal, they dropped back to the half way line. I expect them to press high against Luiz,Cahill and Dave but I can't see them scoring first this time as there will be space to exploit plus their two centre backs are as slow as me.
  15. I'd like to see Ake in place of Moses. Although he's predominantly left footed, his right peg isn't exactly a swinger. He's a talented defender and isn't shy getting forward.
