  1. Not yet. You are able to pre-order it but probably be available in a few weeks or so.
  2. So proud of this team. Bossed the game. Every player out there put in a shift and we were fully deserving of our win over them. Despite all our spending this season, on average we have also had 2 players from the academy in the starting 11 for like almost every game. To see Mount and James start the game and win the UCL at such a young age is a huge achievement. Christensen played majority of that game and was faultless. Mount provided the match winning assist with a perfect through ball. James was a boss out there and won virtually every duel against Sterling. I love being the underdog in a final tbh. Everyone was putting this on Pep, stating this is the last jigsaw of puzzle he is missing there etc, they were favourites whereas we have won it before, and say for instance we lost it would been very disappointing season, however it feels it would be more of a catastrophe for City to lose than us. Allowed us to perform with freedom. Was very important for me also that we qualified for UCL in the league rather than having to rely on this game or then pressure would have really been on. The 2012 UCL win was great as we were huge underdogs that season and was our first time winning the UCL, however this season, seeing 3 players from the academy in that 11 come the final whistle and playing a top, top team and being deserved of the win makes this special. Turned out to be a great season! Looking forward to grabbing the end of season review: DVD 😁
  3. Feel so sorry for him. Especially him being a player from the academy, that will really hurt him. Things like this were always bound to happen with such a strong squad and generally we do really well on the injury front.
  4. His ball playing abilities is fine. He is not as good on the ball as Christensen but he is better than Zouma on the ball and would do quite well here in a 3 man defence and is extremely fast too.
  5. Silva won't be rested two games in a row, especially now with Christensen being injured. Mount I reckon will be back in too. Mbuyamba will not be anywhere near the first team picture this season. Not sure if you are trolling or not 😄 He has just recovered from a serious injury and will be with U23 this and next season predominantly. Livramento won't play also. While we are in very good position to secure top 4, it is not yet guaranteed.
  6. I am glad to see James given MOTM, however had Alexander-Arnold had that type of game, the pundits would non stop talking about him having to be in England squad etc. James was a monster today. He scored a goal against Villa and was not that good in actual game and it was all the "how is TAA not in the England squad etc...
  7. Agreed with most bar the Pulisic comment. He was fantastic. He won us so many free kicks and was a big part of us getting that equalizer. They were terrified of him and his directness worked brilliant on the counter.
  8. Wow. What a turnaround in events. Thanks a lot Aguero. I wonder if he done that on purpose as he wants to play UCL with us next season 😄 Anyway to the game, my MOTM was Reece James. He was brilliant. He was brilliant defensively and offensively. Thought Pulisic was outstanding too. The amount of fouls he drew and counter attacks he initiated was amazing. I thought when Gilmour conceded that penalty, that was us finished. Wow. Totally ecstatic right now. Don't want to get complacent but that should be us top 4. Also paid off, resting likes of Mount, Chilwell, Silva and also Havertz did not come on too.
  9. One of those games where I think Tuchel is thinking we can afford to lose and earlier results today and yesterday have gone in our favour. He prob was also praying that Pep rested some of his key men, which he has done. No KDB in squad is relief. He couldn'r risk burning out some of our players and had to trust squad. Did not see him resting Mount completely though.
  10. Giroud would be an awful option. They will play a high line so the best way is to get in behind their defence with pace. If Giroud starts, we will play right into their hands.
  11. That @HavertzBroadway is the same guy who was named 'ZaynChelsea' on the TalkChelsea forum who got banned for constantly dissing Lamps. He used the same words and even made derogatory terms about the forum on there. He will try to wind you up. "I had a look at the shed end forum and I am shocked: the forum is full of dinosaurs praising one of the worst PE teachers in the history of Chelsea: Frank Lampard. They are partly hoping that we lose so they can tell everybody Lampard was sacked unjustly. (Which he wasn‘t since the players were fed up of being coached by a fraud). Besidws, they censor opinions they don‘t like - DISGRACE. How can opinions differ so much from a forum like ours? After all, we are fans of the same club." "My only regret is what could have been if we had sacked Lampard in the summer and got Tuchel in. Then again, he wouldn‘t have left Paris in summer probably...man, Frank almost f**ked up this season and the next one. So happy our board gets rid off losers as soon as it is obvious that they are failures." There are many other posts where he has made derogatory remarks about Lamps too and will continue his constant trolling on here also.
  12. That was only if Liverpool won the UCL. If we finished 4th and Liverpool finished outside top 4 and won UCL and Arsenal won Europa then yes the 4th team would lose their spot, however because Real knocked out Liverpool, we have nothing to worry about if we finish 4th and Arsenal win Europa.
  13. I think we're used to Werner not scoring now but he was fantastic today. Work rate, brilliant assist and his pace terrorised their defence. Mount brilliant as usual. Havertz top class. I was expecting a tough game, however we made that easily. Gilmour struggled a bit, however has not played that much so I guess that is understandable. Big pressure on Liverpool tomorrow now. Also I am relieved that when we go away to City next week, regardless of result we still will be in top 4, as I know how difficult of a game that will be. Bring on Madrid!
  14. 3 goals and 7 assists so far this season as well as being a part of several of our clean sheets. Has improved a lot recently on the pitch. Very good first season I will say.
  15. Liverpool were the favourites against Real before the tie was made. Real were actually underestimated by the bookies going into their tie with Liverpool. I remember seeing the odds with skybet before the QF/SF draw was made and we were lower placed odds than Real to win the comp. After Porto then Dortmund, Real were least favoured team by bookies odds. Before the 1st leg started, Liverpool were fancied over the 2 legs. I think people are now taking Real seriously after their performance(s) against Liverpool.
  16. Although he went off slightly earlier, I still give my MOTM to Mount. He was fantastic once again. Constantly got fouled, however he always looked to make things happen and caused Fernandinho nightmares. His awareness is so good and he is always one step ahead. Love the way he receives the ball and just sharply turns away from an opposing player and leaves them in no man's land. Chilwell's performances getting a lot stronger again too. Had a fantastic game also as did rest of team.
  17. But without Antonio and Rice. Cresswell went off injured also. I would say all there remaining games are tough. Newcastle despite there position will not be easy, especially as they have Wilson and ASM back now. They have to play us also. Everton is by no means easy as there also competing for Europe. Brighton away from home is not easy and they still have to go to Burnley which is never easy. I am convinced West Ham will drop off.
  18. I actually prefer West Ham winning over Leicester. A draw would be ideal but Leicester winning means that they pull away from us and then we are realistically chasing 4th spot. West Ham winning means that both 3rd and 4th spot is in our sight and we have both of them to play. Both teams also have extremely difficult fixtures and if it stays this way, I am confident we will finish above both of them.
  19. Front three of Mount, Pulisic and Havertz are all aged between 21 and 22. The current quality and potential is frightening.
  20. Perfect response after last week's collapse. And a landmark I was starting to doubt would happen under TT. We scored more than 2 in a game and honestly should have been a lot more. Havertz had a very good game but he honestly could of had a hattrick today. But a goal and assist and big strides in improvement. Totally neglected all service to Zaha also for the whole game. They only had 1 attempt all game which was there goal. Was expecting a much tougher game but wow we were brilliant. Christensen has been brilliant but thanks god TT thought smart and played the more physical defenders to deal with Palace strikers. Zouma has his critics, but he is such a good outlet for set pieces. How many goal has he got this season. Not far off double figures. I admit, was a nervous wreck after Liverpool got that late winner but the boys kept composed and won convincingly.
  21. Seems like he gets a wake up call at his point of the season and plays to his full potential. Please keep it up.
  22. Deja vu! Exact goal he scored last season at this ground in same kit.
  23. I don't think he was hinting that. I think he is just making it clear that he has returned at a stage, where all the other attackers are also fit, so game time will be difficult. But he definitely will get game time, I am sure about it. Whether it coming as a sub etc, I would not be surprised to see him even start one of our next three games against Palace, Porto or Brighton.
  24. Either way, the form we are on and considering we are playing 19th placed team, there is no reason for us not being able to do a lot better than that. It is almost as if we just didnt want to compete with 10 men.
  25. 10 men yes, but the way we just threw away the game was pathetic. I have never seen a 'big team' crumble like that after going down to 10. Embarrassing. Especially against a team/manager who are known for being more stubborn. Bayern for instance couple weeks ago went down to 10 men against Stuttgart at 0-0 and still won 4-0. Arsenal went down to 10 against Leeds earlier this season and still held for the point. We did not plan at all on dealing with 10 against 11. Kovacic is the only player to come out of this with any credit. He played really well despite being down to 10. Huge wake up call now.
