    Separately. The only thing I add to whisky is more whisky. When I was younger I used to drink sugar loaded Irn Bru but now drink the diet version as I find sweet soft drinks too sickly.

    Had to be done!
    I was just seeing the latest in this Tammy thread and didn't realise it was a thread I started back in 2015. So I just went back to thread beginning to have a look. Back then he was behind Solanke and Izzie Brown in the pecking order and as much as we all wanted youth to come through to the first team, who would honestly believe in 2015, how many would be involved in 1st team now? It's so easy to get complacent but I hope this trend continues - as long as Lamps and Jody are at the helm, I think it will.

    Mate, you and me both, although I'm sure you've got me beat by a few years when it comes to following Chelsea.   Nevin and Speedie had just finished their time at Chelsea when I started following.  For me it was Clarke, Spenny, and *cough* Burley that had me hooked as a wee man.
    I don't want to get too hyped about Billy GOAT, but he looks solid, and the fact he bases his game on Cesc is promising.  Long live the Billy GOAT

    I think we are good enough to finish in the top 4, but some of that has to do with the competition for the top 4.  I also think that if the City ban goes though we are well good enough to make top 5 so that could be a blessing.  Also next year don't we finally get our first summer to spend the Eden money, along with the cash from the Morata deal being finalized.  I think we'll sell a good chunk of players and have one hell of a "war chest" to go into the market with.  However, other clubs knowing that could inflate prices, so we need to take no sh*te in the market and have several targets lined up.

    Welcome Mike,
    It's a long time since I have been though blogging gives you some insight into current happenings. 
    The old saying about when in Rome do as the Romans do, applies here too, so if a song starts, 'Stand up if you hate Man Utd' then I would suggest standing up!
    I am amazed for a first match you have acquired tickets for the MHL vs Man Utd.
    That part of the ground is the most lively so perhaps best to warn your Mum she might get to hear some rather choice vocabulary.
    Some chants to start with:
    A.
    Carefree, wherever you may be,
    We are the famous CFC,
    And we don’t give a ****
    Wherever you may be,
    Cause we are the famous CFC.
    B.
    We all follow the Chelsea,
    Over land and sea and Leicester,
    We all follow the Chelsea,
    Onto victory.

    Super, super Frank,

    Was traveling yesterday so didn't manage to see it live.  I was pleased to read about Barkley getting a goal, and that Kepa had made some great saves.  Manged to watch it on replay today and I think Kepa had a very good game, but other than the goal Barkley again showed that he's a backup player at best.  
    What a shaky start to that game, and I wonder if that comes from changes in the CB pairing, but thankfully didn't concede and then took the game to Liverpool which was refreshing to see.  Yes they had about 7 changes, but still a great team and we should hold our heads high.
    Injuries look to really plague us this season, and I'm struggling to think what formation we play against Everton at the weekend.  I hope Kova is fit, because in the post match interview, Lamaprd said that even RLC knows that he's not fully match fit, so I can't see him starting.  I could see us playing 3-4-3 but who makes up the midfield 2 I don't know!
    Love seeing Billy getting MOTM, I felt he'd get overrun in the midfield but his composure was exemplary for a lad of only 18; he looked more mature than some of his seniors in that game. I try not to get too hyped about him, as anyone that's known me over the years knows that I've longed to see another Scotsman in the ranks of Chelsea.  I hope he gets a couple more games, or at least game time while Jorginho is out.
    Frustrating that we didn't score more, but onto the next round, so that's all that matters.  I do have to call out Pedro, though.  I though he played well, but frustrating.  His defensive contribution was exceptional, his finishing was maddening.  I think he ran out of steam around the 75 minute mark, and therefore I think he's got to be replaced in the starting 11 next season.  Hopefully by then all our young lads, and Ziyech will be ready to go.  Absolute stalwart of a player, and I'll miss him, but the time is right to accept that this is his final season with us.

    I think Jorginho would struggle even more as an attacking midfielder. He has the passing range to play there, but he struggles under pressure from the opposition. Imagine how much harder this would be for him playing as an attacking midfielder.

    Not heard anything about him at all, mate.  It's like a media black hole around this guy.  Some folks said they thought he was fit but being snubbed by Lampard, but I can't see that being the case.  I hope we let Pedro and Willian go, add CHO, Ziyech, Pulisic, RLC and Mount into the squad full time.  Let Bats and Giroud go, and get a prime striker (not sure who) in for those lads all in behind or out wide.  I think that'd be quite exciting.
