  1. Andreas Christensen

    Gone agrees with ME[emoji39]
  2. Eden Hazard

    I think I acknowledged that. Morata's deflected assist was fortunate and Pedro's pass was sublime. Like the Romans what else did he do for us?
  3. Eden Hazard

    Funny I thought Hazard was a bit of a luxury for large chunks of last night's game. I know he scored two great goals and saved our bacon but with him and to a lesser extent, Fabregas, we are two down when it comes to serious midfield skirmishing.
  4. Andreas Christensen

    Christensen has great potential but should not be a starter in defence just yet - Cahill, Luiz, Azpi and Ruediger come in ahead of him in my book. He wasn't the only one who had a bad night but his inexperience showed a few times.
  5. Welcome N’Golo Kante

    Kante usually plays in two positions but against City he had at least three roles (I've never seen him so far forward so often) and I wouldn't be surprised if that exertion had an impact on his current injury.
  6. We would have struggled against any premiership team after Wednesday night's performance and recovery time. For me, Wednesday night's win was more important than this one - early in the season etc. I thought the team gave its all but Lost to a better (fresher?) team.
  7. If you want negativity come in here! I think I'll wait until we have the 3 points.
  8. There may be something in Atletico getting a bit long in the tooth but the real story is that our football exhausted them. We got our just desserts and it will deservedly go down in the annals of Chelsea folklore as a great night of football. P.S. I see that Giles Smith on the official Chelsea site referenced my Roy of the Rovers comparison. There may have been an acknowledgement but I didn't see it ;-)
  9. Up there with some great Chelsea nights. What made this one special was wondering beforehand how we would do being back on the big stage - and right from the start we knew straightaway as the team tore into Atletico. P.S. I missed the first couple of minutes. Did Morata get a nasty dig from someone as he seemed to be wincing and hobbling for a few minutes?
  10. What ecstasy. Happy to take the draw even though we were by far the better team and then Michy turns it in with the last shot. You couldn't even get Roy if the Rovers doing that. We owed those street fighters.
  11. I've got a semi blurred stream but did Luiz get suckered into that one. Looked like the AM guy was hanging off him. Brilliant start, especially Hazard, hope we can replicate it in the second half.
  12. Your unpopular opinion about Chelsea

    This. How many times have I seen Cahill put his body on the line over the years? To say that he's unfit to wear the shirt says more about the poster than it does about Cahill. P.S. I apologise for my unparliamentary language earlier.
  13. Not exactly a nail biter but tense enough the whole time we were 2-0 up. Fabregas and Hazard had the skill to help put us out of sight, although Stoke probably deserved a goal for their efforts. Morata's second goal was exquisite, a top golfer would be proud if that chip (even if he was unmarked!). Excellent defence and great to see the two new lads showing we are stronger there now than in recent years, not forgetting that Kurt is on loan. Of course Azpi was brilliant and Cahill steady when he came on. Bakayoko lost too much ball - as did Willian - but settled down in the second half. A very good move to take Alonso off as he had a head on him that could have easily seen red. Morata's ball and Morata's day.
  14. Diego "the guv'nor" Costa

    Tchau Tchau Diego. Bienvenido Alvaro.
