    Have you not seen how poor the reffing is in the Premier League?

    Last Movie You Watched

    Watched tonight on Film Four, Never Go back. Jack Reacher's second movie instalment with the vertically challenged Tom Cruise. Though physically he is not right for the part still thought it was good entertainment.

    I think the estimates were of 20k plus, no other London club has invaded another London club in those numbers surely
  6. Sutton, Kezman and Claudio Pizarro obviously.

    Willian

    Apparently he leads the league is chances created at 35 with Hazard 2nd at 32.....again, for the whole BPL not just Chelsea.... https://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/football/article-6410973/Anthony-Martial-Premier-Leagues-deadliest-forward-Jorginho-ultimate-pass-master.html Jorginho leads in passing and Kante's top 5 for passing too.

    Welcome N’Golo Kante

    Have a butchers at this little vid and make your own mind up after re is Kante been moved positionally just for the sake of accommodating Jorginho

    Just to the left of the clock as you look 3/4 of the way back!
  10. Wouldn’t mind trying to get his teammate, Ante Rebic. Liked the look of him at the World Cup. Strong, fast, works hard. Had a good volley finish in the WC but not sure how good his overall finishing ability is.
  11. Oh man I realy do hope we turn up for this one
  12. KnowItAll

    Welcome N’Golo Kante

    A few assorted, possibly related, facts: 1. From today’s Guardian, “As for individuals [in the PL], few will be surprised that N’Golo Kanté tops the charts for covering the most distance so far this season.” 2. In an interview about a month ago, Sarri said Kante was Chelsea’s only DM. 3. Chelsea, third in the PL, has given up the third fewest goals.

    VAR in 2019/20

    The technology is there but it still has to be used correctly. FIFA got it spot on in the summer - very rare for them I must admit. However it seemed all the referees were very well prepared/trained to use it. I'm convinced the officials will get better at using it the more it is used. Looking forward to more decisions being correct next season...

    Another game where definitely more in our end than supposed to be!! Those turnstile operators must have earnt a fortune!! 45,000 at the game!
  18. I really like the look of him tbh. I'm not sure he is a viable January signing though, he is only on loan at Frankfurt, and they have an option to buy for something ridiculously low like 12m. So we would probably have to wait until the summer.

    VAR in 2019/20

    VAR did go well at the world cup, but I have seen it work poorly many times in other leagues. An example wold be the A League, where the use of VAR has gone poorly. http://www.espn.com.au/football/australian-a-league/0/blog/post/3675095/a-league-opening-weekend-dominated-by-var-controversies https://www.foxsports.com.au/football/a-league/the-sunday-shootout-panel-slam-var-after-round-one-of-the-201819-aleague-season/news-story/f0e6d2daf277b7fbde80a18b04eed68c https://thenewdaily.com.au/sport/football/2018/10/21/var-a-league-controversy/ http://www.espn.com/soccer/australian-a-league/story/3485598/a-league-grand-final-var-controversy-down-to-technical-failure-ffa Hence why I am sceptical of VAR.

    So was Jorginho.... ;)
  21. Always good to see Demba Ba's name. Brings back some very happy memories
  22. Surprising to see Demba Ba up there.

    Premier league strikers ranked by minutes per goal

    Goals per assist would be a good stat to look at too.

    Premier league strikers ranked by minutes per goal

    His stats probably plummeted when he joined Sunderland after leaving Rangers. I would have guessed Anelka but he wasn't scoring too frequently when he played on the left of the front three for us.
  25. 20 year old striker; Liverpool linked to sign him in January: https://www.dailypost.co.uk/sport/football/football-news/liverpool-fc-linked-january-move-15440141 Barcelona scouting him as well: https://www.football-espana.net/75630/eintracht-frankfurt-striker-luka-jovic-barcelona-radar Bayern wants him as well: https://www.bavarianfootballworks.com/2018/11/15/18096502/bayern-munich-james-rodriguez-eintracht-frankfurt-luka-jovic-kevin-vogt-ante-rebic Spurs also: http://sportwitness.co.uk/tottenham-likely-pay-premium-sign-player-interest-rises-3-years/ American website saying "Why Chelsea is the ideal destination for this free scoring Bundesliga starlet and not Tottenham": https://soccersouls.com/2018/11/16/why-chelsea-over-tottenham-is-the-ideal-destination-for-this-free-scoring-bundesliga-starlet-with-9-goals-this-season/ Maybe our ideal January signing?
