  1. Well according to my friend who is a football journalist, the end of Euro 2020 means that 2020/21 is officially "last season". Thought I would take the opportunity to make the first one of these threads since the very first one. Thought I would open with an observation which I spotted/stole from elsewhere: On 11th July 2021, it had been 44,000 days since the death of Queen Victoria, and 22,000 days since the last time Tottenham won the league. Therefore, as of yesterday (Monday 12th July 2021), Tottenham's last title win was closer to the Victorian Age than the present day.

    I had totally missed the date, July 16th 2006, 15 years of this forum. A few other guise before that, but yea, 15 years of The Shed End Forum. Nice one everyone old and new 👍

    It's all part of the Shed end transfer cycle. Phase 1 - We need to identify proven world class talent in the areas we need to most, if we can't get them then wait until the next window. Don't waste money on dross. Phase 2 - Linked with World class talent. Most agree he will be tremendous, we'll win the quadruple. Phase 3 - This comes in 2 variations - No chance we'll sign said world class talent, or why spend £300 million on him when we can get unknown one season wonder for half the price (stats graph supplied) Phase 4 - JUST SIGN SOMEBODY!! If we don't sign anyone right now the seasons over, we're relegated. Phase 5 - After finally signing some random blokes off eBay, excellent signing (obligatory stats table showing he's somehow better than the original world class guy attached) this guy is going to win us the league. Amazing job stealing him from under the noses of QPR and West Brom. He's turns out World class on FIFA. Phase 6 - This one is usually mid season when the bloke bought from eBay is rumoured to be going out on loan in January. Why do we keep buying randoms off eBay! I keep saying only buy world class talent. Then the cycle begins once again.

  10. Hey guys, just an update for you all. The reason I haven't been as active recently is because I've been working behind the scenes at Chelsea under a new role. I can now officially announce that I've been officially promoted to the role of Personal Ultimate Bakayoko Executive. What this role entails is preparing Bakayoko for his role as the next Declan Rice, in fact, better than Declan Rice. Petr Cech himself said that I will be in charge of all Bakayoko propaganda from today onwards. To start, I will tell you some Bakayoko facts that will increase his value and standing with fans: Bakayoko has more Serie A Goals than Alan Shearer and Lionel Messi COMBINED. One day a child came up to Bakayoko and asked: "Will I be as good of a football as you one day?" Bakayoko calmed replied "Of course, young one. Eat your vegetables and work hard" That child grew up to be Alex Sandro. Bakayoko also plugged a HDMI cable into his TV first try. Bakayoko once kicked a ball into space, that ball is now Venus. Anyway, I hope you guys have a lovely day. Love Tom

  13. It just demonstrates a total lack of class, and I don't remember this booing of every national anthem as being normal in the past. I also didn't like it when they booed Chiesa when he limped off injured. The England fans were a massive embarrassment on the whole, but that's nothing new.

  14. If Mancini was managing that group of England players we would have won. No doubt about it. The truth is Southgate should go, he's one dimensional and will always hold back the players. The reality is they'll give him another four year contract.

    The shirt sales paying for a player is a common misconception probably create by Real Madrid back in the Galacticos days to cover their overspending. Nike pays us a set amount up front to make our kits say £80 million then takes virtually all the profit per shirt sale, leaving us with a small percentage. Furthermore, signing a star player doesn’t lead to as many new kits being sold as you think. No doubt there will be a small increase in shirts sold, but it's more likely those who were already planning on purchasing a shirt will choose to get the new player’s name on the back, rather than an existing player. I'm pretty sure Haalands wages would eat up those profits in a couple of months. If I can remember correctly I'm sure we had similar small/sparse rumours on the Havertz signing last year with many doubting we'd sign him. We only got him at the start of September so plenty of time yet.

    He was a great member, good laugh and fitted in, even had his own little clique of followers. He decided to take things to heart when a few members complained about his thread derailment in certain places. He threw his toys out of the pram in random chat thread (which I, and others believed was a joke). It wasn’t, he self exiled and went and spoke down about people here to any Chelsea group online that would listen. His main account here was never banned and people hoped he would come back once he saw he was being a bit of a dick. The problem is he came back trying to disguise himself as a new member and went round playing the victim and even turned on his so called ‘forum friends’. He’s now gone off again to any Chelsea group online that will listen to him and again speaking down about people here claiming that he was a new member. It is probably one of the weirdest situations we’ve ever seen here from what seemed to be, a really decent and generally funny person. The intro thread from his alt account is in the Shed End Lounge and probably says it better. Due to those games, it was only right to restrict the main account now, he has easy means to contact the forum if he wants to talk.

    Maybe we just sell Tammy to Arsenal. Broja takes his spot. This assessment was made after 12 minutes of exhibition football

  32. His move to Milan is expected to be completed on Friday apparently. Good that we're getting some business sorted relatively early on. Safe to say that I think we got pretty good value for money out of the £12m we paid for Giroud.

  34. Agreed, I can't stand it when players do that. The disappointment must be huge, but by taking off the medal they also take away the accomplishments and the hard work they can be proud of. I can understand it when the players who didn't get any minutes do it in these circumstances though.

    Mason Mount

    Whoscored gave Mount a rating of 7.22 last night (4th best in the team behind Sterling, Maguire and Kane). Personally I thought he was superb. I hope he scores the winning goal in the final to shut the nay sayers up.

    I found it annoying at first but I'm kind of catching the bug myself, I mean obviously I know he's not perfect infact I'm not even against replacing him if we find a suitable player (no not Declan Rice) but the sheer amount of excuses being rolled out to play him down is getting ridiculous. He's the only regular on both the Chelsea and Italy sides on their (convincing) runs to European finals but it's being portrayed as just a coincidence/his teammates are carrying him. I don't even disagree with some of the assessments of his weaknesses but the mental gymnastics to downplay anything good he does (one of which playing a key role in getting us the second biggest trophy in football, maybe first given the decline of international football) doesn't sit great with me. It's getting to the "Mount's a teachers pet" and "Sarri's playing Hudson Odoi under duress" levels.

  46. Just visited my parents, where we discussed the Euros. My father was very surprised to learn France were out, but my mother was very much up to speed: the Swiss beat the English and the French beat the Belgians. Last week for some reason or another she was indignant about Baku being one of the venues (while we were on the subject, I told her about our Europa League final win there), and today she was a bit miffed that I didn't know from the top of my head which match will be played there next. So, all in all, a good talk about football with a couple of very involved 92 year olds
