  1. This is more a comment on squad depth than Conte but I'll make it here anyway. I'd rather see us spend top dollar on players that will improve our starting 11 then give those squad places to youth players. We've had the best u21's in Europe for nearly a decade, the only reason none of the individuals have really made it yet is because we leave them to stagnate rather than develop that last bit. As well as having them in the squad though they have to be trusted. If that position was clear the manager would know what's expected and what he has to work from, young players would stay, the board could be more focussed on getting the 3 (or so) players that we really need and the fans would feel some affinity with their team.
  2. Hello mate, I want to try and get tickets for the next round of the cup, do you have any memberships I can borrow again?

    Thanks very much.

      Cheers mate

  3. Would love to see Dermot and his merry band do well for Crawley, I was genuinely excited by that group of youngsters at the time. I was less cynical then!
  4. I'll be over the moon if he came back, a bit older and wiser as well. That's our next captain sorted!
  5. What were the thoughts on Gokhan Tore the other night?
  6. I have a question for you all, it's something my dad said to me. He said Jose has always been totally measured and calculated in everything he's done. We all knew he wanted the Man U job, did he deliberately fukup last season in order to be available for the Utd job when it became available?
  7. Surely we wouldn't consider bringing him back. He's always rated himself much higher than anyone that's seen him play would rate him.
  8. Don't know much about this kid but within two minutes of him coming on for Belgium the other day I thought, sod the rest we need this lad. Couldn't tell you exactly why but he instantly looked like he had something special about him to me. I for one hope we get this finalised.
  9. Picked my daughter up from gymnastics and decided on the way home to introduce her to Cock Sparrer. She didn't ask me to turn it off.
  10. well done RLC great achievement.
  11. Gokan tore looks set to sign for the pickies for around £12m
  12. While he's here he'll never just be a squad player, he's an ambassador, he's a link to the fans, he's a true leader. Anyone that doesn't get that doesn't get football.
  13. But at 18 if the club are trying to get him to sign up he must look at the fact that no youth gets a chance here and that'll be what's putting him off. Not necessarily the fact that he hasn't been playing for the first team yet.
  14. Two things for me: 1) I love a player to have aggression in his game, Costa though doesn't seem interested in football most of the time he just wants to dish out dirty attacks on the opposition. 2) I don't get that he's been carrying the team at all, he's been decent at times this season and last but if we're relying on a single player to carry us we're more fukd than I thought. His upturn in performances has coincided with a number of other players doing likewise.
  15. ShedEnder91, I understand what you're saying about fight and passion but I disagree where Diego is concerned. I don't see him showing passion for the club, I see him being a man that loves to try to hurt people by being dirty rather than being tough, I see a man that when he's there he wants to charge around 100 miles an hour leaving boots and elbows in on people, and I see a man that is "not there" far too often. That's my take on it, I'm not trying to change your mind just offering a different perspective on it.
  16. I do, he's wearing the Chelsea shirt, representing my club and so to me it does matter.
  17. I've never been so against a Chelsea player as I am Costa, I find his behaviour indefensible. He's like saurez but nowhere as good. I can't stand him and hope he leaves this summer, he's not good enough for all the sh*t and the attitude.
  18. If he's injured he will rest during the summer so that he's fit to play for the club that pays his wages. Time will tell.
  19. My post wasn't a reaction to his performance just last night though. I have no trust when I see either hazard or Costa signal that they want to be subbed without being able to clearly see why, I just don't believe either of them have the desire to play for us. As for Milner, I've always liked him as a player and would have welcomed him if we'd brought him, yes I agree with your sentiment that he works hard but he's also underrated in my opinion. Ask a fan of a team he's played for!
  20. Arjen Robben......Arjen Robben........ Not sure what made that chant come into my head as I was reading this thread! I fully expect us to get rid of Hazard this summer (I hope we do as there's nothing worse for a fan to see than a player that doesn't want to fight for the shirt), then in 2 or 3 years time we'll be asking if we were too hasty. The sad truth is that it's easy Hazard will be a player of immense quality, but when you really need him to step up for the team he hasn't got the balls. I'd much rather see someone with less ability but some fight.
  21. I love it but it looks like there are far too many brick pillars round the entrances, it looks like you'll only get about 4 people abreast between the pillars.
  22. Very similar style to Ballack, people understood it with him because he'd made a career of it before he got to us. What I like about Ruben (besides he's homegrown) is that he wants to take the ball off players that have been at the top for years, yesterday he didn't set the game on fire but he didn't look out of place either. Well done kid and here's to the proper opportunity that you deserve.
  23. We're damned if we do and damned if we don't!
