    Our New Stadium

    No question about it, Chelsea have come a very long way on and off the pitch over the last 25 years! But UTD are and probably always will be on another level to us in terms of size T hey are just one big cashcow that can almost sit back and watch the money roll in. They could spend the next 10 years in mid table wasteland and they'd still get 75,000 every game and still be a mega club worldwide. Same elsewhere where Barca and RM will always be the mega clubs in Spain like Bayern Munich will be in Germany.

    Jorginho is a Blue

    Robson is not and ranter and raver looking to say something controversial in order to grab a headline. He's actually one of the smarter ex pros on the media gravy train and watched Jorginho many times covering Italian football. I hope Jorginho goes on to prove Robson very wrong, but the jury is still very much out on him at the mo. He does look slow and that is a crucial factor in his posistion and he did look terrible when up against the pace of City in the CS. Let's wait and see how things go with him before going Ott thinking he's the best thing since sliced bread.

    Makes so much sense! The east stand is 40+ years old and architecture has moved on a ton since then, so maybe even that could be redeveloped too add a few more thousand?

    Let's be realistic and honest on this. We are a big club but Utd are a top 3 in the world mega club! We should not be comparing us with them!

    Tiémoué Bakayoko

    For sure, not as shockingly bad as Baka, but who ever was? Mikel was good at shielding the ball and playing a five yard pass, but that was about it. Imho at a top club a player simply has to bring more to the table than he did. Nice bloke though who usually had a nice smile on his face.

    Andreas Christensen

    We have to be fair though and remember that Christensen was dropping Luis style clangers in the latter stages of last season.

    I wish he'd stfu about Conte and get on with just playing for his new boss.

    Andreas Christensen

    If he's not going to be first choices and regresses this season, then I can see him moving on next year. Its not looking good for him if the manager rates him below the likes of Luiz, who's one of our weakest links. He cannot afford to hang around as a fringe player at his age.

    Tiémoué Bakayoko

    Not for me! He had some good games but he was a massive weaklink most if the time. Gave nothing in the opponents half and slower than a snail carrying heavy shopping.
  10. Yeah, the lack of pace at the back is almost certainly going to be exposed against the better teams. I shudder to think what a Liverpool in full flow will do to it. But I think this season will not depend on what we do against the top teams, but a lot on us not dropping so many points against the weaker teams like we did last season.
  11. Of course its very early season, but a win and be 6 points ahead of them already would be a very welcome, very handy lead over one of our main rivals for a top four place. nice

    Tiémoué Bakayoko

    You nailed it there! I can forgive any player for not being good enough, but not lazy arses like him who don't give 100%. I'm old enough to remember Doug Rougvie. I'm being kind when I say he was limited as a footballer but, by God he had the heart of a lion and would run through a brick wall for Chelsea. As such I had a real soft sport for him and though he made me groan at times I'd never feel like slaughtering his performances.

    Michy Batshuayi to Chelsea

    I pleased to see the club is finally seeing and moving on those players clearly lacking the required technical ability. It's not difficult to spot, so one wonders why we ever signed the likes of Bats and Bakayoko???

    Next Chelsea Goalkeeper

    I'm pleased with this signing! However, we are still desperstely short of firepower up front, so fingers crossed we can pull a rabbit out the bag and buy someone who can put the ball in the net.

    Next Chelsea Goalkeeper

    Journo on another station said Kepa is very happy where he is and unlikely to want to move over here.
