  1. Luckily we were up against a poor team and a beaten-docket of a manager today because we are way short of where we need to be in terms of players. Everytime the ball goes to Alonso or Moses you expect nothing and get nothing. Everytime it goes to Fabregas you expect something 20% of the time and you get something 20% of the time. Everytime it goes to Giroud you expect at least something and you get at least something. Everytime the ball goes to Bakayoko or Morata you expect complete, utter, unadulterated garbage and you get complete, utter, unadulterated garbage. When it goes to Hazard you expect and get brilliance. Conte dodged a major bullet today taking off our only player with extra time still a very live prospect. From the post-match interviews the players clearly want him gone and I imagine he will grow old (although not bald) elsewhere.
  2. I think Alonso has the potential to be a man. He's not quite there yet but the signs are good.
  3. I'd rather we lose 3-0 having a go, with decent possession, pass completion, a good number of attempts and looking like we can play football, than 1-0 sitting back playing like Sheffield United.

    Danny Drinkwater

    You've finally seen through Mikel I see. Slightly surprised to see you rate Jokanovic at the top of your scale though. I would disagree on Drinkwater and would give him a 3 as I thought he did ok.
  5. Conte won the league in his first season, we're one point off second now, qualified for the next round of the Champions League, and still in both cups, and you think he needs apologists. Odd.

    Tiémoué Bakayoko

    The mystery isn't why he looks so poor - he lacks basic ability, which he is never going to get. The mystery is why our coach, who clearly knows the game, continues to select him.

    Jose Mourinho thread

    He's such a tart. Hes's had a pop at coaches celebrating goals for the cameras when he's there "Look at me everybody - not celebrating. Look at me"

    Antonio Conte - Now Officially Manager

    After the performance against Huddersfield it is clearer than ever that we must keep this man, even allowing for the dodgy weave. If we allow him to leave it would be the managerial equivalent of the greatest mistake in the history of world football - the sale of De Bruyne. While it may be argued that Huddersfield could have put in a better showing, it was clear that Conte devised a plan which was perfectly suited to defeating them. The players stuck to the plan and executed it perfectly, each and every one of them. Hazard is a genius. Pedro plays with a schoolboy's relish reminiscent of Joe Cole before Mourinho knocked it out of him. Rudiger's distribution was key to the way we set up. Cristensen looks so promising we'll probably sell him. It was good to see Moses back, albeit rusty. Willian shoved it to his many deluded critics. We even got a performance from the clearly limited Bakayoko. When I saw the teamsheet before the game I was worried. But 5 minutes in it was clear we had a plan and to have imparted that so effectively to the players, with 2 days preparation, is further evidence of the brilliance of our coach, and of the necessity of giving him whatever he wants, and keeping him for as long as he wants to stay.

    World Cup 2018 Qualifiers

    It was sad watching our, admittedly limited players, look like rabble last night. Bring back Brian Kerr - at least when we lost under him we tried to play a semblance of football. The only upside is that Valerie's mate is happy.
  10. Handy 3 points. Ratings: Courtois- 5 - Beaten at his near post and lay down for the second goal. Alonso - 5 - First time ever not rating as 6. Luiz - 7 - Decent most of the time but looked afraid of getting hurt. Cahill - 4 - Why take one touch when you can take 96. Looks like he needs to be taught the basic mechanics of running. Rudiger - 6 - Limited but at least he looks as if he's not afraid of getting hurt. Azpilicueta - 7 - Plus one for the goal obviously. Bakayoko - 3 - Scores one point each for the two times he didn't give the ball away and an extra point for having the imagination to give the ball away differently every time. Looks afraid of getting hurt. We can all have a bad day but try not to look so f**king casual the next time. Fabregas - 6 = I don't care if he doesn't run around a lot looking intense I like watching him play. Hazard - 7 - Looked like he really wanted it. We are so lucky to have him. Morata - 4 - Make a decent run, finally receive a pass, flop down on your backside, look aggrieved. Repeat. Pedro - 7 - Looked like he really wanted it. Subs - 9 - Completely changed the game, I mean completely. Wouldn't mind seeing more of Zappacosta despite the murine appearance.

    World Cup 2018 Qualifiers

    Ha, ha that was exactly my reaction too. My daughter wants us to draw Portugal! If we qualify we will grace the tournament with our 268 passes attempted, 189 completed.

    You can keep your guff about having to attend matches to be a real fan, We all know that the true test is - did you cry when Jose left?
  13. We've had many memorable European nights but more often than not we've nicked games rather than imposed ourselves. Tonight's performance was the type of performance I've been hoping for in Europe from a Chelsea team for many years.

    Your unpopular opinion about Chelsea

    John Terry sheds crocodile tears. There is no media bias against Chelsea.
