    Realistic Manager Poll

    I am going for Ancelotti with one of Lamps, Terry or Jody as his number two. We need a manager that will start to utilise the FA Youth Cup winning talent of the last five years. Ancelotti gave Josh Mceachran a good chance last time he was here and has the experience to keep us challenging. Remember those 4, 5, 6, 7 and 8-0 wins in his last reign. Jody would be my current favourite for the number two role given his knowledge of the youth players. I would also have no problem if Conte continued with all internal issues sorted out, but I can't see it happening.

    Our New Stadium

    I think you'll find it's mainly brick columns around the outside, if you check out other images. Not saying it's beautiful though!

    Olivier Giroud to Chelsea

    OK, so I was duped...

    Olivier Giroud to Chelsea

    Interestingly, given that picture that he's on the bench for Arsenal tonight...

    Olivier Giroud to Chelsea

    From FourFourTwo on twitter...
  6. Nothing will happen, but a referees main duty is to protect the players in his charge. Clattenberg admits failing to do this, he should be struck off ALL refereeing lists.
  7. 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.

    Danny Rose

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

    Arturo Vidal

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

    Not when the club pay the tax for you. Not allowed here.

    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.

    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.

    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.
