  1. Today was the performance of champions and what it takes to be champions. We showed immense discipline in not reacting to the thuggery that Mark Hughes instills in his teams. When they know they can't beat a side on footballing merits alone, their best chance of getting a result is to kick seven bells of sh*t out of the opposition in the hope that they will react and be reduced to 10 or even 9 men. This could easily have happened today with the likes of Costa, Pedro or Luiz, but our players reacted with a calm head and a steady heart and knew the best way to react was simply to play your football and beat Neanderthal man with simple footballing ability and a footballing brain, two key elements that Stoke lack in abundance. I feared for Costa after his yellow, but AC obviously got through to him at halftime, because despite continued provocation in the second half, he was superb in his overall play, and his mindset was spot on. Whatever AC has done to this squad since the Emirates is nothing short of miraculous, but the man is clearly something unique, no shouting and screaming at the media, no blaming anyone else when things have gone wrong, just quietly going about his job of getting the best out of his team under any given circumstance or environment. I've been Chelsea since I was 8 years old, I'm 63 next September, and I can only remember 2 other managers with a similar demeanor getting similar results from their teams, Dave Sexton and Carlo Ancelotti. Two legendary managers who are hopefully about to joined by a third.

  4. Anyone other than them!!!
  5. Need a better performance next week against the Swans.
  6. I think whatever the result you'll get some negative comments from some people, that's the whole nature of a forum like this. People come here to express their opinion of the game and sometimes their opinions differ from yours, it doesn't mean that they're right or wrong in what they say, just an opinion. God forbid we should get like the Gooners or the dippers who seem to think they have a God given right to win every game they play, sometimes the opposition just scrap and defend well enough to deny an obviously more skillful outfit the opportunity to win a game, this happens on numerous occasions throughout a season, we've seen it plenty of times in the past and will do again in the future, so let's just point to the fact we're a point better off at the end of the weekend than we were at the start and in spite of a less than sparkling performance in crappy conditions against a difficult to break down, well organised unit, we should take a reality check on what Antonio & the team have achieved since the Emirates back in September. I for one, can take this result without too much difficulty and say well done lads, carry on with the good work and short of a major implosion, we "SHOULD" be a happy bunch come the end of May.
