  1. Petr finishing instead of stopping, all this new fashioned stuff....
  2. Something along the line that Chelsea signed 2 German players, in Werner and Havertz, which is good for Chelsea, but also for the Germany set-up, as the youth system is very good. And still Havertz hasn't signed yet. It wouldn't surprise me if he waited until we're qualified for the CL.
  3. Pretty much official, is that the same as a bit pregnant? You're being very enthousiastic, that's admirable, but until we see the obligatory photos of Havertz with a pen in his hand and holding up a Chelsea shirt, it's NOT official. And the others are right, will you please get rid of the childish avatar? Kepa is a Chelsea player, whatever the one-star reviews say about him.
  4. He is now, thank modness.
  5. Actually, I've read it more often and not necessarily about CHO. We see a player in short flashes during a match taking an hour and a half, let's say twice a week. In CHO's case we've seen even less of him than that. His colleagues see him practically every day for hours. We don't how everybody behaves during training and when the players relax. That impact you're referring to is just the impact on you. You can't speak for others, especially not his fellow players, no matter how many handbooks you're waving about. There is no comparing the way you view CHO to how his colleagues view him. And labelling him as a grumpy teenager (only because he's not smiling enough to your liking), and concluding he is therefore not giving enough on the pitch is completely unfounded.
  6. And yet some people here think it matters Something to do with a "wrong attitude".
  7. So what is it No snake transformation for me, thank you very much.
  8. Yes Among my best football memories, a match when the whole Bridge (minus a few intruders) sang Jorginho's name by the way. Thank you for making me feel better We dust ourselves off, and proceed to win to clinch a CL spot.
  9. Yesyes, but has anyone seen him smile?
  10. Or a troll, who didn't post his brave opinions when we were winning the FA Cup semi final.
  11. I have that idiot on ignore, but I see he's back after we lose, not having posted his trolling hatred of Super Frankie Lampard when we decisively beat ManU last Sunday. Another one who should donate to the forum in thanks for the freedom he's been given to spout his poison.
  12. It's going to take everything we've got to get us through the remaining matches of the season, istn't it I want to beat this lot more than anything right now (and then obviously go on to beat the next lot...).
  13. Oh absolutely, what is rumoured (or not) in whatever form of media is the absolute and only truth
  14. Can we just agree that working hard in training is very important in the pursuit of a starting position? Sheez.
  15. Valerie


    We need to die in a season when we have a marvellous kit. That may not be as easy as it sounds
  16. Aha !! Expect Jamie Cumming as our number one goalkeeper!
  17. How do you know we're not?
  18. What was their body language when they were 18, 19? Is there a moment in an established player's career when he says: Right, I've proven myself now, so I can have a questionable body language because I'm so fantastic? Just wondering
  19. A couple of matches into the restart a few people here remarked on how the young players didn't seem to have come out of the lockdown as well as the experienced players. I wonder if the kids hadn't realised how much work is involved in keeping yourself fit with limited room to work with. After all, they've probably been bouncing around and playing football since they were three, and assumed their bodies would stay fit as they had always done. The oldies know better... Anyway, this fitness issue, the come-back from injury, and having caught the virus, perhaps with a tinge of not working as hard as he should, could be the mix of elements that's stopping Lampard from giving him more minutes.
  20. Plus, apart from the unnecessarily conceded penalty, we didn't make costly mistakes, neither did we give ManU many chances. All that combined gave us a much deserved win. Let's not pretend that we wouldn't have won without those De Gea mistakes. Sometimes that is what the result is hanging on, but not this one.
  21. We must do everything to keep this virus going
  22. Apparently he doesn't smile and doesn't run like a headless chicken. He needs to step up, I fully agree with that, but to ascribe personality traits to him based on a subjective view how a "properly motivated" player should look, is a bit silly.
