    Loved the commentary earlier when they were congratulating Liverpool for keeping Messi out of the game, roll on another 10 minutes he has two goals and they’re gloating about the genius he is and how you can’t keep him down. Don’t think I’ve ever been so pissed off at the end of a Liverpool defeat as I am tonight. If dembele was anything other than a speed merchant it would have been 5 tonight. I know it would have been embarrassing for the EPL but worth it to see Liverpool truly trashed.

    It's good to see Suarez getting under the skins of Liverpool's players. It must be killing the Liverpool fans, it's something he used to do when he was with them all of the time and they used to love it........I hope he bites one of their players

    English fans really are a bunch of prats when it comes to European away fixtures. Imagine being in your 50s and thinking pushing strangers into a fountain is funny. If the knob gets twatted by the local old bill he'll be the first to be whinging about it. Is it really so difficult for fans to behave themselves? If having a drink makes you act like a c**t, then don't drink.

    Sarri - In or Out?

    I've seen the opposite mate. Not @bisright1, but others have said we fluked our way to the title that season etc etc. There was also someone the other week who said that our first half against Everton in the 2-0 loss was a better performance than when we beat Everton 5-0 on our way to the title. Obviously you know i am not Sarri's biggest fan but i have still given him credit when it's been deserved this season.

    Gonzalo Higuain

    I think we should let Huguain go this summer and look elsewhere regardless of whether we are banned or not. I don't even think a pre season will make that much difference. His best days are behind him and isn't the player he once was, let alone the speed and intensity of this league compared to what he's been used to. So unless he has a time machine that he has access to in the summer then I don't really understand how people would be expecting a dramatic improvement for next season.

    Ruben Loftus-Cheek

    I never thought he would go Lamps style TBH, but some of teh little flicks and tricks he did as a kid at Everton were (to my eyes anyway) reminiscent of JC at West Ham, hence the pseudo comparison. Maybe a combo of the 2 which would have been outstanding to be fair ?

    Rebic is suspended for the first leg. They are missing two of their main 3 up top so I think we need to capitalise. They are formidable at home though.

    I am confused...IF by the end of the season: - have secured top 4 - Won / got to the final of EL - Aleady played in League a cup final ...we would HAVE to say Sarri has been a success right? Surely we all would have taken that at the start of the season?

    Sarri - In or Out?

    If that was such a big factor we would have many more teams like Leicester poping out and getting league titles but that's not the case. Buying Kante was a factor that last time when we won the title no question about it, but that's a different discussion. We have been winning the league in the past 10 years multiple times, and so did just a few other teams and it has very little to do with playing in Europe or not, winning makes you play in Europe, being the best team makes you play in Europe so it's about having quality, even Pep said that winning the league is harder than winning in Europe and his argument is that you play more matches and need to be good for a longer period of time, when Conte won the league he didn't win it because he wasn't playing in Europe, he won it because he made the best team that season and made the 3-4-3 and 3-5-2 tactic that nobody knew how to play against and that other teams tried to copy.

    Sarri - In or Out?

    Spurs is a bad example. Although conte inherited a squad with problems, there was still the core of a league winning team in their prime, and we added Kante. What sort of squad did spurs have when they we regularly not in Europe? Conte did a fantastic job, but I dont think theres any question his job was made easier being able to have more training sessions with the team. Especially for a coach like conte who is known for believing heavily in repetition to install tactics into his sides. He used to time well, and we were as well drilled as we were under Mourinho 05/06. I dont think the opposition being poor or in transition is real excuse, Guardiola and Mourinho have won plenty of league titles in their 1st seasons at a club, both spent significantly more than us going into that season aswell. I really liked conte, loved his passion, hated 3 at the back though, but it worked a treat, and if we had given him top quality players to work with, he would probably still be here now.

    Chelsea get Top FOUR

    That summer we got Morata was a strange one, Utd got Lukaku and Mourinho never seemed a fan of his when he was at Chelsea. My impression was the Euro clubs just were not selling their talent unless we broke the bank. We were not prepared to overspend for a player and this might be the financial reigns being pulled in too by Marina on the instructions of RA. Perhaps if Emenalo had still been there it would have been different yet another consideration was Conte initially was playing 4 at the back so if we had invested would he have asked for the wrong players considering he later changed system.

    All the talk of racist behavior from supporters in England of late, but there always seems to be serious issues in Italy. I don't blame him for not wanting to play in a country with the issues that get reported. I don't know how he would fit into Sarri's system but think he could be a solid midfielder for someone.

    Sarri - In or Out?

    I think teams adopt the personality of their manager. Conte's first season was filled with hard work, determination, and enthusiasm. When his personality changed and it went sour in the second half of the second season, so did our performance. I think today, our team is like Sarri. Not quite sure of what to expect, no ability or desire to change, very robotic and structured. And until the "Palpable Discord", Mourinho's teams were like him: arrogant, defiant, cold, ruthless. I absolutely loved Conte in his first season. He was as excited as any of our players and supporters when we scored and won. I wish Roman, Marina, the board, and Conte could have sat in a room in the summer after his 1st season or early in the 2nd season and ironed out the differences.

    I watch Juve regularly and think Allegri is a great manager. He is very tactically flexible and capable of changing games. I've never cared about boring. I'd have Conte and Jose back in a heartbeat. Much preferable to ideologues who have one way of playing and aren't capable of adapting for different matches.

    To be honest, I will be shocked if Liverpool eliminate Barca. I know Barca ain't as good as they used to be but Messi always give then that edge over any team. I know that there is some desperation on here by some (including myself) hoping that Liverpool don't win the CL. But the harsh fact is, they are the best team left in the competition. Barcelona are a very good side, but they are not the Barcelona of old. And I'd go as far as saying that this Liverpool team would give the old Barcelona a run for their money. All we can do is pray hard to the football god, that good prevails and the Scouse get hammered!

    That fa cup final was the first final conte had ever won. You knew that right? Conte is famously bad in cup competitions. The fa cup against united was the exception. Not the rule.

    I would give anything for De Ligt, he would transform our defence for years to come. He's a 19 year old cb that looks like a player at his peak. He even makes Blind look good. Sadly, I think when he leaves Ajax, we won't even be one of the names he considers. He can pick any team right now, and we just don't seem to be after those types of players anymore.

    Thats a great comment, I just feel a bit worried since I'm sure that if there is a counter attack our defense will get crushed, that Frankfurt team loves to exploit the minimal given space they live for the sucker punch. I would go with that best trio and hope for the best. Honestly I would be happy with a 0:0 and then we just win at home later on...

    Ruben Loftus-Cheek

    Harsh truths that need to be spoken, if he wasn't English we wouldn't give a rats arse about him. He's a good player, but that doesn't make you Chelsea material, he always had a lot to prove in the shirt with very high expectations, for me he hasn't matched them. And that's okay... He wasn't expensive, we knew the situation, but I can't see him ever having a prosperous career here. I much prefer we gave Rubin the game time.

    Thank you. Met Ossie on the plane over to Barcelona for the CL game in 2005. There was about 150 Chelsea fans on the plane. He took time to chat to the fans and have photos taken. Difficult to take in that it was just over a year later that he left us. So great to have his statue outside the West Stand.

    Let's not pretend he hasn't made a huge difference to that Liverpool side. Last year Liverpool finished the season having conceded 38 goals, with two games left to play they've currently only let in 20. Liverpool have lost just once this season too having lost 5 last year. He's transformed that back line, if that's not a reason to be up for player of the year what is? I get that as Chelsea fans we don't want to praise the scousers for anything but surely we can acknowledge what a good season VVD has had for Liverpool?

    The majority of Barkley's passes are sideways or backwards and very rarely takes on his man. Incredibly bang average and nowhere near Chelsea level. Everton was his level, if he wasn't English no one would be against selling him.

    Sarri's done awful!1!1!1 Took over a team in 5th place that scraped a trophy in the FA Cup. Lost a final on penalties to one of the best Premier League teams OAT. Likely to finish 4th Likely to reach another final which we could easily win
