  1. Having failed to get through the "virtual waiting room" for this game, and living but 15 mins from the BET365 I was in with the home fans - a good seat opposite the dugouts! Just on here to say how fantastic the away support were yesterday, seeing and hearing them from a differenct vantage point. Loud and proud all game. Stoke fans only really roused by what they saw as the injustice of Alonso staying on the pitch. Can Chelsea also start a move towards the "stadium man-of-the-match" being any away player if that's appropriate? When Morata had a hat-trick it seemed odd hearing Shaquiri announced as MOTM.
  2. Danny Rose

    I've been around long enough to remember Gordon Durie leaving Chelsea to return to Scotland...
  3. Arturo Vidal

    You mean they're not all money-grabbing, greedy B'stards? I think I need a lie down to absorb that thought...
  4. Arturo Vidal

    Not when the club pay the tax for you. Not allowed here.
  5. Pre-season, or the lack of it.

    Only played five pre-season games last year, two in Austria and three is US. So if we are counting Community Shield as a friendly then it's the same as last year. I think Conte just likes to work them really hard on the training pitch. In Antonio we trust.

  7. Michy Batshuayi to Chelsea

    I won with Anelka a few years back. Drogs was injured going into the season, so I figured that Nico would get a few matches and build some confidence. At 25s Michy got to be worth a tenner. 14s for Morata looks OK too.
  8. Antonio Conte - Now Officially Manager

    The interview reinforces what I'd been suspecting in that there was more surrounding things than a straightforward contract renewal. Firstly, I don't think Antonio will commit to a longer contract until he knows that his family have settled in London, they are currently in the process of moving so if they settle well we could see an extension next summer. Secondly, I think Antonio wanted to select the coaches added to his backroom staff which he now has, it had been suggested that the club wanted to promote from within. Finally, I think Antonio wants a squad that allows him to play both 3-4-3 and 4-2-4, I think the signing so far support these options, as do many of the players we have been linked with. I am glad there are some interviews coming out now. A couple of weeks ago when there had been no contract and no interviews I was starting to get concerned.
  9. Baba Rahman - The heir to Ash?

    Not on pre-season tour.
  10. Sergio Aguero

    Talk around these parts (just South of Manchester) is that Citeh really want Mbappe from Monaco. IF they were to get him, then Aguero may become available, but even then would they sell to a Premier League rival? Unlikely IMHO...

  12. Alexis Sanchez

    Why would Arsenal sell to Citeh and not us? Why would Sanchez choose Manchester over London when he reportedly likes London? I could understand LeArse not selling to another EPL club, but if he is available we should be in a really strong position. Maybe Sanchez wants to work with Pep again, but did that go so well last time?
  13. Confirmed Transfers - Ins and Outs

    I am sure that there will be no announcements until the Nike deal (apparently Nike want loads of publicity around the deal). Many of the players we've been linked with were all over the gossip columns in early June and things of gone quiet since, I hope that means they are effectively done deals. This certainly applied to Lukaku and Baka, but also all the VVD and Morata babble has died down to. Let's see what happens...
