  1. Willian

    I blame Conte completely for playing Willian on Saturday. As someone else had posted, it was almost a year to the day when Willian's mother passed away, and that alone should have been reason enough to not play Willian. I suppose Conte has not lost a parent, and perhaps does not know the toll it takes on a person when such anniverseries bring back sad thoughts that must adversely affect how one performs on the job. Of course, given that Willian had to travel practically half of the globe to get to the match due to the International break, and due to his playing so poorly as of late, those two other reasons should have been justification enough not to have played Willian on Saturday.
  2. We are being investigated for 'incest'? Say it is not so!
  3. I suppose that it should have been a yellow for Luiz, instead of a red, but now he is out for three games. I knew things were going to go wrong when we had a great 2 on 1 30 seconds into the match, and Willian farked it up big time.
  4. Your unpopular opinion about Chelsea

    I cannot believe Andy North (did you really win two US Opens) said that redcafe is better than this forum. The foul language allowed on redcafe is really abhorrent, and the monitors on that site do not seem to care one bit about it. Maybe I am a bit of a prude, but I cannot stand redcafe for that reason alone.
  5. For a change, the schedule has been very kind to us, in that Everton had to play in Croatia mid-week, after having played Citeh last weekend. They are very tired, and it shows.
  6. Your unpopular opinion about Chelsea

    OOOHH, that's a good one. I think I hate ManU equally as much now with Egotistical one in charge as I did when Sir Rednose was in charge.
  7. Your unpopular opinion about Chelsea

    I am going to regret posting this, but I like Celtic and do not like Rangers (perhaps because I am Catholic?).
  8. Following Our Nearest & Dearest Rivals, 2017/2018

    My take on Walker's second yellow is that if the referee truly believed that it was deliberate in that Walker looked back prior to his elbow making contact with the Everton player, then it should have been a straight red, but if the referee felt that it was somewhat accidental, then at best it should have been a free kick awarded to Everton and not a yellow. So, in my mind, Referee Madley got it wrong.
  9. The Nathan Ake Thread

    God Bless, do I have to read all of this back-and-forth banter? Please, Don Antonio, just let it pass and move on.
  10. Hello from India!

    Welcome, nkits. I am curious about which Premier League teams are the most popular in India. I am guessing ManU, Liverpool, and then perhaps Chelsea and Arsenal and maybe Tottenham.
  11. The Unpopular Football opinion thread

    I actually liked and admired the Arsenal teams with Pires, Henry, Wiltord, Viera, and Overmars (oh, I really liked him).

    Hey, Alan. Sawa di Krup (did I write it correctly?)
  13. The Unpopular Football opinion thread

    Here is an unpopular one. PSG was robbed worse this year in their CL loss to Barca than we were robbed in 2009. Here is another one. If another other "big" team is to win the league, I would much rather it be Citeh (that is probably not too controversial a statement).
  14. Marcos Alonso signs for Chelsea.

    I apologize in advance, but has anyone mentioned the free kick that he took yesterday. It was hit perfectly, and if not for skimming off the top of the head of a Boro defender who (correctly) jumped, it was destined for the top corner of the net (you can see Marco's face when it was partially deflected -- he knew he hit it perfectly).
  15. Don't jinx us, it is not in the bag yet! Please delete this thread.
