    New Signing
  1. Danny Drinkwater

    I think it's fair he could have expected a little run in the side at times this year to try and reinvent the brilliant partnership he had with Kante at Leicester. It's a team game and these 2 worked really well at Leicester. Given how bad Bakayoko and Fabregas have been this year it was surely worth a try?
  2. Callum Hudson-Odoi

    This is the perfect time to give Hudson Odoi a run in the first team. We have some meaningless PL games coming up as we have nothing to play for. Hazard is a little out of form and also deserves a break for attempting to carry the team individually for most of the season. Stick him in the team and see how he gets on. We have nothing to lose. Appreciate this guy is young but he is the best I have seen in the academy for a long time. I'm just nervous about him not getting a chance.
  3. Squad

    He played out of position v Bournemouth which was the managers choice and scored a wonderful equaliser v Watford. No one said he can't be criticised but to say we should be looking to sell him is plain stupid.
  4. Squad

    What an absolute disgrace these posts are. Actually laughable.
  5. Antonio Conte - Now Officially Manager

    Conte needs to resign now (although he won't as he wants the pay off). His negativity is wearing me down, the fans and clearly the team. If you think his team selections, tactics, demeanour and attitude have all been amazing this season and faultless, whilst our dramatic fall from grace can be apportioned purely to the board then I disagree with you. This man plays the victim wonderfully in the press and is at least equally accountable for the regression of the team this season. Thanks for last season Antonio but you aren't the manager for us long term.
  6. How many Chelsea members are there?

    From memory tickets for the FA Cup semi final will be readily available to any members/ST holders who want to go. Unfortunately the final will be a different story. Should we get there, the game will be higher profile and we will have a reduced allocation. Members with very high points could be ok but all season ticket holders will get the opportunity first.
  7. First team squad outgoings?

    Looking at this, a lot of people pushing for Fabregas to be moved on. In my opinion I think we should keep him but certainly in a reduced role. Almost similar to last season where he predominantly came off the bench. Also we need to remember he qualifies as a homegrown player which plays a part in squad requirements these days. With no sell on value at his age I certainly see a useful role from the bench or in games where the opposition dig a trench on their 18 yard box.
  8. Alvaro Morata

    Dropped for Spain and this should be a massive kick up the back side for him. The world cup is 2 months away and if he turns his form around, no players are standing in his way for him to get back into that squad. He should be fully fit now so surely this should drive him on to turn this form around. (I hope he is reading this for motivational purposes)
  9. Andreas Christensen

    Tough few games for Andreas against some of the best players in the world at Barca/City/United For sure, he has made a few errors recently but with the right attitude you would hope he can come through it a better player. Many on this forum have long been going on about the club not giving young players a chance, but they also have to accept young players will most likely make mistakes too! I think we have all seen enough this season to believe he can be a big player for us over the next few years. For me, we should persist with starting him.
  10. Antonio Conte - Now Officially Manager

    Completely agree, he wants the sack and the pay off. It is so obvious from the press conferences/tactics/substitutions. I enjoyed the 90th minute substitution of Hazard today to ensure the board removes him this week. Then Conte can have the new job he wants (probably Italy) by the summer.
  11. Marcos Alonso played a season with Davide Astori at Fiorentina who sadly passed away this morning, will be interesting to see if he is able to play today / in the right frame of mind
  12. Eden Hazard

    Everyone wants him to stay of course but I'm not sure money alone will be enough to make that happen. I hope I'm wrong but history says it's hard to fend off Real Madrid when they come calling for one of your players.
  13. Next Chelsea Manager

    Unless there is a miracle in the second half of this game, how can he survive this? We have a week until the next home game and it wouldn't surprise me if Conte was sacked in the coming days.
  14. Olivier Giroud to Chelsea

    You would like to think he wasn't just lieing through his teeth? Something doesn't add up to me, either Conte had a big influence on this transfer as he says, or Giroud is just outright lieing. Any guesses anyone?
  15. Olivier Giroud to Chelsea

    First interview on the website today: "The most important was talking with the coach, Antonio Conte. I felt like he really wanted me and he really wanted to work with me". With all the speculative comments about Giroud being a board signing and not a Conte one, do his comments surprise anyone? I was told Conte had nothing to do with transfers at all so it is interesting Giroud had this to say.
