  1. Just back from Wembley...what a ball ache to get home from, and I am only living just south of Wimbledon! Anyway... .... Thought that we started the opposite of how we did in the friendly a couple of weeks ago. We were slow and sloppy. Tiredness? Apathy? No idea... But it was a poor start. We then got a bit of a foothold in the game, but never looked like we were properly in control. Morata when he came on reminded me of early Torres. Effort and good movement but lack of service and composure when it mattered. Didn't look confident..a bit worrying. Michy didn't do much of merit either. A word on our fans. I am usually the first to give a shout out to the fans, but today I thought we were poor. Easily outsung by arsenal and felt like a general lack of interest. Have to admit that having tried to get some songs going over my block, all of which failed, I then gave up myself. Wake up Chelsea. Wake up the support. Come on the chelse. Ktbffh
  2. Virgil Van Dijk

    Hard to believe we would drop 50m when we already have good depth at cb. I would guess that if it went through then Rudiger or azpi would be used predominantly at rwb. Also wouldn't look good for Christensen. Personally I think cahill is the weakest link at the back, but can't see our new captain getting dropped.
  3. Tiémoué Bakayoko

    Ring a ring a roses, a pocket full of posies, A-Tiemoue, A-Tiemoue, Bakayoko Song sorted.

    God help this forum if Utd did gazump us. It would be full scale melt down from some of the, erm, more emotional members.
  5. Romelu Lukaku

    I would politely and strongly disagree with that. Who heard of belotti this time last year? I would guess not many. OK, so he had 1 good season and now people would like us to spend big on him. I would guess there are countless similar (relatively) unknown players out there who we could buy and make them into that success story and star name. do you seriously honestly believe that there are zero other players in world football who couldn't come in and contribute to the squad/team?
  6. Romelu Lukaku

    Some of the dramatics I read on here... how do some of you not have a breakdown? :) 1st we hear ... " this club is directionless, throwing 70 - 100 mill at that big talentless lump. This is a terrible transfer window and we are not going to challenge for anything." then it's...."This club is directionless, dillying and dallying over Lukaku, and now we have lost our saviour and great hope. This is a terrible transfer window and we are not going to challenge for anything." All paraphrased of course. Firstly, we are 6 days into the transfer window. just 6. There is no drama and no need to panic buy. If we are still at this position in 1 mths time then we can be a bit worried, but as it stands we don't need to be too overly dramatic. If we do not sign Lukaku, so be it. We move on. Secondly, aside from 2015/16, we have been pretty consistent over the recent past of being competitive at challenging for titles/cups. There is little to suggest that this is going to change in the short term. We have an owner who has, and is likely to continue to invest a sh*t load of money into the club. So, again, whatever the perceived "failings" of the board during this, or any other transfer window are, we have still been the most successful team of recent history. Thirdly, in the very worst case scenario, Costa leaves and we don't sign anyone else upfront. oh well, is it the end of the earth? We have a highly promising (and bloody expensive) player ready to start up front, a player who many on here were screaming to get a chance last year, plus any number of false 9s that can play there. Is it perfect? No...but is it the end of the world? No. Alas, that is highly unlikely to happen and we can all be fairly certain that someone else will be drafted in to bolster the numbers. Who knows, Costa may even stay. Fourthly, Lukaku, Morata, PEA, Belotti are not the only strikers in the world. There are any number of players who could be purchased and do a good job for us. Sure they may not be superstar or household names, and maybe people would be underwhelmed, but then there were similar themes when we signed Cech, Lamps, Gallas, Robben (or any number from a list of very good players we have bought who were not stars or well known when we got them) - so, no drama. If we don't get any of the aforementioned players, we will get someone else. .... many have been critical of lukaku's big game mentality, record, link up play, passing... well, lets just get ibrahmimovic and be done with it :) What will be will be. We are the Chelsea and we are the best. We are the Chelsea so ..........
  7. Diego "the guv'nor" Costa

    Absolutely. I am surprised by all the talk about how he is a great character and important presence in the dressing room. I used to work with a guy who was always trying to be the centre of attention, making juvenile knob/shagging jokes and just generally acted like an immature prick...and the general view in the office was that the guy was a clown, nobody really liked him and people were relieved when he left. No idea why it would be different with costas teammates, as like you he seems to be an exhausting presence .
  8. Ronaldo

    Multiple news outlets reporting we are considering a bid for Ronaldo, which would see Eden going in the other direction. Now... That would be a cold decision from conte if he wanted that. I wouldn't be happy! https://www.google.co.uk/amp/s/www.express.co.uk/sport/football/818326/Chelsea-Real-Madrid-Cristiano-Ronaldo-Antonio-Conte-Roman-Abramovich-Transfer-Eden-Hazard/amp metro.co.uk/2017/06/18/chelsea-to-make-huge-play-for-cristiano-ronaldo-by-offering-eden-hazard-in-exchange-6717997/
  9. Random Rumours

    Not a rumour, as I am not aware we are interested in anyway, but what are peoples thoughts on Gael Clichy as a back up/rotational LWB with Alonso. 1) Free 2) Home Grown 3) experienced league winner.
  10. Diego "the guv'nor" Costa

    A lot spoke about on here about this scenario effecting value - But Lukaku came out last week and confirmed he would be leaving Everton. That hasn't effected his estimated value or asking price. So I don't agree that it necessarily follows that his value is lower than it was 10 days ago for example. Whilst we don't know what has happened here, personally I can see 2 fairly realistic scenarios. Scenario 1: China came calling in January, Chelsea FC got excited at the potential money being thrown around, but told them to wait until the summer. Costa however never had any intention of going to China, and took exception to Chelsea trying to offload him to China. Scenario 2: Costa did initially go to China in January, but Chelsea wanted to wait until the summer. The January strop was because that move was put on hold. Now, come the summer, given changes to China league financial rules, the China offer is no longer on the table - and Costa is scratching around trying to come up with plan B. His recent statements seem to have laid the groundwork for yesterdays announcement and he appears to have been laying the groundwork for a move to athletico. After the FA cup final he said "If the club wants to sell me, they know where I want to go" and " I have a contract and no intention of leaving, but if there are changes to be made that might reduce my chances, if the coach won't count on me anymore or is to give space for another striker, I know that I'll have to leave. But only to where I'm willing to" Then Athletico said they would only pay 20mill - but shock horror, they lost their appear against the transfer ban. Yesterdays announcement by Diego is just an extension of those comments after the cup final. effectively, he laid the ground work saying he would leave if conte did'nt want him, and now he has confirmed conte did'nt want him and will leave, and has said we must sell him for a bargain price. Whatever happened with the China move, and who initiated that, it seems clear he has wanted to leave for a while, especially given what he told Conte when conte first joined. The guy is a good scorer, but is inconsistent, stroppy and unreliable. I also find his persona distasteful, and as i said in a post a couple of weeks ago, his behaviour (pretending to shag the prem league cup , pretending to shag the kit man and f**king about with fire extinguishers during a Conte press conference) is distasteful and a poor reflection on our club. Get rid, but Chelsea need to tread carefully here, as they could end up losing an valuable asset for a relatively low price.
  11. Antoine Griezmann

    Not sure if this has been said already. But the telegraph are saying that utd are now definitely out of the running and won't be trying to sign griezmann. Instead they are going to only go for a target man. Fingers crossed!
  12. Corentin Tolisso

    What a load of old nonsense....and this certainly won't be happening next season. Arsenal are not in the champions league remember!
  13. Diego "the guv'nor" Costa

    Maybe I will be in the minority here, but I don't really agree with the "great character " comments. His character and general behaviour has been shown in his conduct when waiting for a conte press conference last week (waiting with a fire extinguisher, doing pull ups, then refusing to leave when asked), the way he danced in his pants and pretended to shag anything near him after the title win,despite TV cameras being there (which my 5 yr old was very confused about), and now using the cup as a cock (again in front of loads of kids) annoy me and don't help portray the club in a good light. Comes across as immature in the extreme. Grow up Diego.
  14. double double double, John Terry will win the double. And the sh1t from the lane will win f@&k all again, but John Terry will win the double. Have faith. We are the Chelsea. And spurs are bottlers. Ktbffh
  15. Gary Cahill - PL CL FAC LC EL champion

    apparently he has an ongoing gallbladder issue that has effected him over a prolonged period. https://www.google.co.uk/url?sa=t&source=web&rct=j&url=/amp/www.independent.co.uk/sport/football/premier-league/gary-cahill-illness-gallbladder-condition-chelsea-vs-southampton-goal-header-epl-title-premier-a7702931.html%3Famp&ved=0ahUKEwil88CAoMLTAhWDYJoKHYXjAfcQFggtMAI&usg=AFQjCNHzQcv5j94iXqqUH7W8HFXSs8gL9w
