    I want to, but the people that are paying my wages want me to do something in return early the next morning. So unfair

    That Sterling Incident

    We are living in barmy times. It’s not uncommon for players or referees to the struck by objects thrown from the crowd, and yet a single incidence of a player being verbally abused receives more media attention. Whatever happened to sticks and stones will break my bones but words will never hurt me? The PC pendulum has swung way too far IMO And as for suggestions that the fella should be disciplined for swearing and having an angry face. Stroll on . As others have said, should this include players and management? If so Sir Alex Ferguson would be serving a life sentence in Wormwood Scrubs by now. Snowflake generation tosh if you ask me.

    Maurizio Sarri Officially Appointed

    I hope you know the first sentence was sarcasm right? I've never thought Kante is a great footballer, he is a good player don't get me wrong, but the first half against City we've seen a lot of these mistakes before. Especially in games where we have a lot of possession, in the Newcastle away game Kante was slowing the play down, allowing Newcastle to get back into position. I think there are revealing limitations to his game in this position and I don't fancy it, I really hope I'm wrong and I really hope he adapts to that position but I just can't see it, he was much better utilised under Conte. I think the next few weeks we'll see, we have a good set of fixtures and there's no reason why we shouldn't win all of your next 6 games. I'm hoping this City game will be a stepping stone, otherwise, it'll mean nothing, we have to start taking Spurs and Arsenal very seriously if we want to get into the top 4.

  6. Arsenal-game coming up. We have not been good away this season so that is a worry. In that game we need to be with the ball I think. And we need as deadly finishing as against City.

    Good. Liverpool and Spuds bigger threats than Napoli and Inter. they will also get distracted in CL more than EL friendly boring-ass matches. Sarri will know how to deal with these italians teams. they are good at times, but limited. A lot of chances missed yesterday by Napoli which is a team that knows how to play football but doesn't have the quality to deliver end product. that's why they've never won anything. Nothing really dangerous came out of CL group stage. It is still between us and Arsenal. And we all know it's up to us to whether we win it or not, not to Arsenal.

    Maurizio Sarri Officially Appointed

    I have done a silly thing all season and trust what Sarri says. Kante gets way too much exposure here and in the media. He does so because Sarri changed the position and role of one of the most decorated players in the world. Kante was his position and his role. But it is not important. What is important is we are in the middle of a period where we are implementing a modern system to our side. We are not there yet. Small tweaking and changing of personnel is needed to make things work better and to make us contenders. Most importantly we need time to do repetitions and to make this football natural. Sarri said we need to have the same motivation against smaller sides. I really don't think he lied. What has lowered our motivation is probably the fact we have hit a wall and players are questioning the system. Probably very natural. I'm glad we won City because it will lift the spirits. Hope it shows against Brighton.

    I think it depends what he does.. Or did for work. If he was a big representative of his company I can see him getting sacked. Maybe he was already on a short lease and this was the last straw, don't know. On a first impression bases he is not a first time offender. What he is is an idiot. I'm glad he knows it himself.

    That Sterling Incident

    Modern day of trial by social media and the so called 'influencers'. Just because Rio ' I could read lips' Ferdinard said it's no doubt racist, it is racist without a full on investigations. I'm pretty confused by Sterling's social media response, it's more of a generic response than confirm this guy said the sinister thing people wanted to believe.Giving out his personal information and encouraging vigilantes is almost criminal, the guy is already guilty without a proper investigations. Once his name is out, of course his employer is eager to cut him off, save money to pay older employee while keep the company name untarnished. Is it enough, will Rio bend his knee in the commentary box this weekend?

    In saying all this, the last few hours have been totally cringe as deluded Spurs fans celebrate like they got a result like ours at the nou camp in 2012, while Liverpool crow they're definitely winning a trophy this year and wax lyrical about a save alisson made when a Napoli player hits the ball right at him. can only hope they both get the reality check they deserve soon enough

    That Sterling Incident

    It is totally wrong that he should lose his job before this alleged offence has even been investigated. I am not sure how legal it is to sack a member of staff for an incident occurring outside of the workplace. The very most that might have been justified would have been suspension on full pay pending an investigation. The notion of a life time ban seems Draconian. People are sentenced to to life time in prison for murder, and are often released after ten years for good behaviour.

    Agreed, would rather at least give a go to one of our young right backs, Look how well liverpool and spurs have done with their lads, Robertson is for me the best RB in the league on current form, Alexander-Arnold looks a real prospect, Trippier is top quality too even though he only really blossomed in the last couple of years. Better off saving that cash and going all out for a few players who will really improve us where we need it most. I'd be looking at Koulibaly, Icardi and a new winger, or two if Hazard does go in the summer.

    That Sterling Incident

    I agree with this. Losing his job is ridiculous, the Daily Mail putting his house in the papers, basically begging people to seek him out, trial by social media, pundits and people in the media saying it's definitely racism without the investigation being concluded, it's not right. I don't agree with the his behaviour at the game and I would prefer it if football didn't have this, but if he didn't say anything racist, then this isn't any different than what we see every single week in the Premier League. There is a certain big game coming up on Sunday, I wonder how people will react to Liverpool and United supporters, because it's very likely that we will be seeing a ton of abuse aimed at the players from the fans.

    PSG topping their group after having been locked in 3rd place for about 4/6 of the time. Something tells me they might go very far this season ... As for the dippers and spuds, I hope they get Juventus and Bayern !! Manure might actually get away with an easy draw unless they get PSG ... City will surely draw against utter dross like Schalke. Or they'll get a huge surprise in the name of Atlético Madrid haha!!

    Well I know you didn't, you said that this stupid behaviour is not right and I agree, if you have at least half a brain you shouldn't allow yourself to behave like that in public and even less if you know it will be on cameras, it's just that I feel it's a bit exageratted to punish that fan the way it was done...ban all of them for life if they are racist and can't control themselves drunk or not, but why destroy their whole lives as well, these people are from a different time and yes it's 2018 so everyone should be nice but it's not "1984", yet...

    I merely stated a fact, its not illegal to walk down a street shouting your'e racist. Anyway did you ever think for one minute it sounds a bit daft ? People walking down the street exclaiming their racist, bit odd isn't it, sounds more like a bit of irony from some drunken fans aimed at people who think all Chelsea fans are racists.

    Hazard also has 3 league titles, 3 domestic cups and 1 European cup.......what has Salah won?

    Eden Hazard

    “Eden Hazard has scored 14 goals in Europe in his entire career with Lille and Chelsea. In less than 18 months at Liverpool, Mo Salah has scored 14 Champions League goals.” Ouch.

    That Sterling Incident

    No......but I don't remember saying he should have lost his job in first place, so I don't even know why you are directing this at me.

    Glad both the English teams went through. Makes both the Europa League and Premier League a bit easier for us now that we dont have to contend with them in the knockout rounds and they will have rotated squads playing league matches.

    Chelsea v Man City (PL) Sat 8th Dec 17:30 UK

    Don't think we will see another team coming to the Bridge playing like City did, that has a lot to do with the success our the plan B. In addition, opposition missing a few chances helped, unlike Wolves who scored with every shot on goal. Great win, but many tough games ahead and drop any games we'd be 5th spot given Spurs/Arseanl are in good form

    That Sterling Incident

    The thing is he even stated the seats they have, they are always on tv. And he knew he was going to be on tv when he did what he did. So as an employer, youre seeing him in front of millions of people screaming in another mans face, over what, football. Im sure racist or not, theres a lot of companies that would do the same. Im all for banter and even taking the mick during football games. But the way them four practically fell over the hoardings to scream.in his face, racist ir not, it was embarassing.

    Saying that, the enormous amount of space Napoli left between the midfield and defence was probably a hangover from Sarri... ;)

    Well Inter and Barcelona [reserves] have just confirmed themselves as utterly worthless teams. They should be stripped of whatever European titles they have for permitting this mishap. Fair play to Liverpool though - thoroughly outplayed Napoli from start to finish. Ancelotti's rubbish 4-4-2 reminded me a little bit of that 'Ramires-Essien-Lampard-Malouda in front of Torres-Drogba' experiment which worked once (and was nowhere near as good as 'Anelka in the hole').
