  1. When Christensen went off against Bournemouth it was 0-0, we all know what happened during the rest of that game and against Watford. It's not a coincidence as far as I'm concerned. Special props to Hazard and Dave. The ref gave them then most amount of soft free kicks. And as for Sky, the commentary team made out we were the luckiest team to ever play this sport. Worse than them 2 clowns, is the fact that "red card" challenge on Zappacosta in the first half hasn't even been mentioned at all by Sky.
  2. Antonio Conte - Now Officially Manager

    If you could hand pick any football match to get back to winning ways, it would be playing at home to a club 4 points adrift at the bottom of the table. Conte has to make sure we win this match, anything else would be a failure.
  3. Antonio Conte - Now Officially Manager

    Publicly saying that he overachieved with these players last season is like saying to them "last season I got you to play better than you actually are". It can only go downhill when you say something like that.
  4. Antonio Conte - Now Officially Manager

    I didn't want Conte to go before today, but I can't see how he's going to come back from this. 2 heavy beatings by 2 bang average teams. The fire has gone in him. There is no passion in him anymore, he's nowhere near as intense as he was earlier in the season. Taking Willian off but leaving Pedro on was odd - even Hudson-Odi would have posed more of a threat than Pedro. He seemed content with only losing 1-0, he didn't even throw on a striker to try and get something out of the game until much later on. The way things are at the moment you couldn't blame Hazard if he was thinking of leaving us - he deserves to play in an attack minded team. If it came down to having a new manager who can convince Hazard to stay or losing Hazard but keeping Conte, then I would rather keep Hazard.
  5. Tiémoué Bakayoko

    The sending off was harsh IMO, but in all honesty he was having a stinker of a game up to that point. He reminds me of that guy who convinced Souness he was George Weah's cousin. Bakayoko is so far off the pace at this level you wouldn't even think he was a professional footballer. The real problem for me is the amount of game-time he has had this season. We've been far less patient with better players in the past. He shouldn't be starting games for us.
  6. Antonio Conte - Now Officially Manager

    He definitely needs to concentrate on winning football matches rather than complaining. He might even surprise himself on the difference it can make.
  7. Now we will have a day of everyone feeling sorry for Liverpool, how the referees ain't good enough, they make it up as they go along etc... I remember when Mane got sent off earlier this season, the media felt more sorry for him than Ederson, despite him getting kicked in the face. The uproar whenever Liverpool have a decision against them is staggering.
  8. Draw between 2 of our rivals and Sky Sports' Liverpool bias studio upset - happy days!
  9. Closet Liverpool fan I'm sure - listen to the emotion in his voice compared to when talking about Spurs
  10. Conte In? Or Conte Out?

    I remember Jose talking about omelettes and eggs, unfortunately this is a cycle that has been happening for years.
  11. Antonio Conte - Now Officially Manager

    Now that the transfer window is shut hopefully he can just focus on coaching the players he has got.
  12. Antonio Conte - Now Officially Manager

    What I noticed was the lack of intensity from Conte on the touch line last night. He wasn't as animated as he usually is. He looked like a man who's truly had enough. at 1-0 I thought we can still win this, at 2-0 I thought a draw is the best we can hope for if we get a goal back early enough, and at 3-0 I thought let's not concede any more than 3 please. The lack of fight from the manager and the players bar Kante and Hudson Odoi was alarming.
  13. Conte In? Or Conte Out?

    I'm going to say in, although I reckon he will be either gone in the summer or even sooner if we get embarrassed by Barcelona. I want him to change though. I think he has handled quite a few things badly this season, e.g Michy's lack of game-time , not even trying 2 strikers together when we are losing, Bakayoko playing almost every game despite not performing, the argument with Jose and not being more flexible with tactics. I never want to see the false number 9 again - last night Hazard completely missed a header that any striker at any level (u16's, u18 etc..) would of connected with. We need Hazard to creating not waiting for others to create for him! I wouldn't mind seeing more of Hudson-Odoi as he is more of a attacking threat than Pedro IMO I would like him to coach us how to score more goals than the opposition, rather than conceding less than the opposition (if you get what I mean). We played the weakest Arsenal team we have faced in years in the 1st leg of the league cup semi final and we couldn't even get a lead to take into the second leg - he is far too cautious with his tactics. There is also only so much moaning you can do publicly before it starts affecting the players and the whole mood of the club. The board has it faults and we all know that, but I believe we have a good enough team to make it into the top 4. We have a big lead over Arsenal at the moment, so we need to make sure we finish above Spurs. He needs to look in the mirror this morning and realize that the transfer window is shut for this season and get us back to playing like a team that are defending champions of the premier league. He is the Head Coach at Chelsea, he needs to start acting like one.
  14. Olivier Giroud to Chelsea

    £35m is too much money for Giroud, although I do think he is underrated. At the right price he could actually prove to be useful to us. My worry is now that we have left this so late in the window, again, we could end up playing with no stikers against Bournemouth. Morata is still injured apparently and if we then loan out Batshyui then we would need to buy a striker, have his medical and registration all completed by midday tomorrow!
  15. Question is would West Brom have been given that penalty as the away team at Anfield??
