  1. Huge half coming up for Frank and the boys here. Regardless of the shower that we just saw, there's still 45 minutes to get something from this.
  2. I think there's both a huge amount of hyperbole and over-simplication as a football fan. In Timo's case, hyperbole in that when a player hits bad run of form, they are finished/lost their ability. Over-simplifcation also in his case, in that he fits the "Chelsea have a striker curse" narrative. Timo isn't Morata, Shevchenko or Torres. All tier 1 strikers who - for reasons applying to their own style of play, our team and confidence in their surroundings at the time- didn't make it as our front man. Personally I feel we've seen far more in Timo's overall contribution (ie. stepping up as pe
  3. An absolute gem of a player, even at 36. Privilege to see him play for the Chels. Makes the right challenges, creates calm at the back, incisive passes forward- still world class.
  4. Thiago Silva is up to now the signing of the EPL season, insane composure
  5. Remember reading some thoughts last season that we always had very decent CBs, they were just bereft of confidence with Kepa between the sticks. Now Rudi and Christensen cruised to one against a decent Sevilla side, Rudi and Zouma away against Newcastle (s*it team, traditionally awkward fixture though) can't help but think it was purely down to Kepa (not underestimating Edouard's contribution, which has been immense).
  6. Criminally underrated player, consumate professional throughout his time at Chelsea. 100% should be first choice up top right now. Loved how he pointed out Kante's contribution after his header as well. Top man, hang on to him Frank!
  7. Lamps tends to play three CBs and wing backs in the bigger matches, also did both fixtures against these last season. Wouldn’t be surprised to see Azpi/Rudi start as third CB. Mourinho normally also often plays for a point or a scratchy 1-0 away against rivals, so it could be a cagey one. Personally I hope it isn’t and we batter them. Let’s go boys!!!
  8. Barkley, Kante, Werner, Reece hit the ground running. RLC, Kepa and Havertz didn't- although with no pre season or proper integration think that's to be expected for him. Thought Mason was subdued as well. Our strength in depth this year is frightening, really. 5 first teamers (if we buy Mendy) out today. Big season ahead 👌
  9. Tell you what- if Christian keeps this form up and Ziyech and Werner hit the ground running next season, we could be up there in terms of having the best front three in Europe. Regardless of top 4 finish, exciting times ahead, at least from an attacking perspective.
  10. Bayern fans often got on Warner's back when he was playing against them, also they wouldn't pay up for him last season- not complaining though!
  11. As a Chelsea fan from Munich, delighted this one has gone through and he didn't end up at Bayern. Lethal striker and a big statement from Roman, Marina and Frank that we're not fading away from the top table yet. Hope Timo keeps his scoring up in the EPL 👌
  12. Still amazed Luiz had the consistency in him to win the league in 16/17. Guess with 3 CBs there's someone covering him when he cocks up like that- but he's so error prone. Funny though 😂
  13. Fairplay to Jose, we don't have anything to fear against the small teams- Spuds falling well within that category.
