  2. Following Our Nearest & Dearest Rivals, 2017/2018

    The Sunday Times did a feature on Fabregas and his ties to Barca. They commented on the history between us and them, the drama and the grudges, but this bugged me: they talked about the 'museum piece goals', and highlighted Ronaldinho's amazing toe-poke and Iniesta's that stole the game in 2009. Both Barca goals. What about Ramires? What about Essien? And what about Lamps'chip from an impossible angle? All 3 were on another planet to Iniesta's. It seems only Barca can score memorable goals, in the eyes of the press.

    I've watched every games he's played for us, and my opinion remains the same: I can't decide if he's a quality player or not. He has qualities, plenty of them: he can finish, he shows some great touches, he is prepared to work hard. But he is ridiculously inconsistent, he's not a great passer of the ball, and he often goes into headless chicken mode. I'm not fence-sitting, he just confuses me, but on balance produces more frustration in me than admiration.

    We need to restore the CL to what it was back in the 70s. Look how many top sides you had to get past to win it back then: 1976-7 (Liverpool's first win) 1st Round - Crusaders 2-0, 5-0 (7-0)2nd Round - Trabzonspor 0-1, 3-0 (3-1)Quarter-Final - St Etienne 0-1, 3-1 (3-2)Semi-Final - FC Zurich 3-1, 3-0 (6-1)Final - Borussia Moenchengladbach 3-1 I mean, look how it's been devalued when you compare that epic run to our mickey mouse effort in 2011-2 Chelsea FC 2-0 Bayer 04 Leverkusen Leverkusen Valencia CF 1-1 Chelsea FC Chelsea Chelsea FC 5-0 KRC Genk Genk KRC Genk 1-1 Chelsea FC Chelsea Bayer 04 Leverkusen 2-1 Chelsea FC Chelsea Chelsea FC 3-0 Valencia CF Valencia SSC Napoli 3-1 Chelsea FC Chelsea Chelsea FC 4-1 SSC Napoli Napoli SL Benfica 0-1 Chelsea FC Chelsea Chelsea FC 2-1 SL Benfica Benfica Chelsea FC 1-0 FC Barcelona Barcelona FC Barcelona 2-2 Chelsea FC Chelsea FC Bayern München 1-1 Chelsea FC Chelsea

    My youngest had one for Christmas the other year. He loves it. One stripe looks black on that photo but it's green.

    Wouldn't have gone unpunished if he'd cost £2m.

    Don't really know what Morata had to do with this, but this should always be a penalty. Lo Celso didn't just make contact by putting his hands on Kroos, he clearly had a grip and pulled him back/down. If Kroos keeps running his momentum is gone and the danger will probably be gone and he will not get a penalty, that's why he drops to the floor and it's a shame he has to do this. If someone is past you, as both Morata and Kroos were, as a defender you should be running flat out to catch up with them. To run flat out your arms need to be by your side and pumping furiously (ooh errr). Lifting your arms and placing them on the opponent's shoulders is not a sign that you are trying to catch up with them. It is a giveaway that you are trying to slow the opponent down. This happened to Morata but instead of getting the penalty the ref booked him and instantly red carded him for his protest. There have been a few identical situations since the Norwich fiasco, and the pundits have been unanimous they were clear pens. That's not what they said about Morata's.

    That season, our defence was at its most impregnable with JT and Gallas at CB and Bridge at LB.

    No, he's highly principled. Don't you remember him slamming Pires for diving and saying he'd never view that Arsenal side as invincible because that draw v Portsmouth was tarnished? No, nor do I.

    Still have an old Chelsea The Blues scarf I bought in 1975. A classic, but can't find an online picture. Will keep looking!

    First half was horrendous. I was fuming we'd left out Mark Hughes. Second half was just magical.
