  1. That foul was so far back in time, Mike Dean had to travel back in his VARDIS just to disallow the goal.
  2. It may seem an overreaction but I'm going to be honest. VAR has ruined football for me. I know it's meant to help the officiating, and yes a lot of the times, it gives correct decisions but I'm sorry, it's use and application are so so poor. Years ago, when we scored I celebrated like mad, now I have to pause my hopes just to check VAR isn't going to rule it out. It's well and truly disrupted the flow and passion for the game and I'm sick of it.
  3. Then the everlasting line that Alex Sandro scored for Chelsea
  4. if Alex Sandro scores, I may be permanently scarred.
  5. Stand out performance for me today was RLC, so good to see him back. But of course, the penalty shootout brings its dread.
  6. Don't get me wrong, I'm loving Marcos' form right now. I think he's discovered something within him that hasn't been there consistently since Conte's first season, I'm really impressed and plaudits must go to both him and Tuchel. I am concerned however at his recent stance and comments surrounding not taking the knee. I understand his point of view that it's become part of the furniture and thus the thing you do nowadays before games. I understand how that can be seen as losing a bit of its meaning. I just wish however he'd take a step back and consider the optics. I do not think for one moment that Marcos is racist however I think he himself needs to recognise what kind of message it sends and what the act of not taking the knee encourages. Already right wing platforms such as Nigel Farage etc have been praising his "act of courage against the woke". Similarly, Marcos apparently did not inform his teammates before hand that he was not going to take the knee. Now, I don't for one second would like to speculate and put words in people's mouths but surely players like Ruidger who himself has been very vocal about his experience with racism as well as his English teammates and Tammy a couple of years ago, must have interesting opinions on the matter. He has a right not to take the knee of course, I just personally feel he should reconsider what kind of message it sends. Just my opinion anyway.
  7. Chelsea v Juventus, my dream of finally seeing Sandro play at the Bridge will be realised.
  8. I hear North Korea being rumoured. Poor Human Rights record ✔️ Rampant Homophobia ✔ Government Corruption ✔ Why it's made for FIFA!
  10. Give him a squad number and chuck him in the squad
  11. At worst, a rotation player till Billy Goatmour returns. At best, a really good bargain
  12. I just don't think we'll pay the clause. Think of the optics, a club bullying Marina into agreeing into their demands. It's not the type of message our negotiators want to send across Europe.
  13. This point feels like a win, goes to show you the incredible defensive acumen Tuchel has coached into these boys
  14. My lineup: Mendy Azpi Andreas Rudi James Jorginho Kante Chilly Mount Lukaku Werner
  15. In a season where Ronaldo is going to United and Messi went to PSG, just shows how much of an arsehole Daniel Levy is to Harry Kane
  16. £42m for Kounde, Marina Masterclass yet again, she could take the lower option on The Chase And still negotiate with the Beast for more money. Absolute wonder woman
  17. My predicted lineup Mendy Chalobah Andreas Rudiger Azpi Kovacic Jorginho Alonso Mount Lukaku Werner
  18. I saw his story, apparently it was earlier this week so what potentially 10 days? There's a chance he could make the Liverpool squad.
  19. Can see it going to KDB unfortunately, Man City is their golden goose. Don't think he deserved to win POTY let alone this.
  20. I think if I had to rank, including Munkworth's other suggestions, it would go like this 1. Giroud - Top professional and scored vital goals to get us Champions' League football, our third all time scoring European comp player. 2. Tammy - Arguably broke the number nine curse, one of our own and scored some great goals. Just often lacked that vital ruthlessness. 3. Werner - Quite high up but what he's lacked in scoring, he's made up in positioning, intelligence and assists. He will get better, I have no doubt. 4. Eto'o - Scored some great goals and a memorable hat-trick against United. Would agree with others that we got him past his prime though. 5. Torres - That Barcelona goal away, that clip is forever etched in my mind. Let down by confidence and injuries he sustained at Liverpool. 6 Ba - Seems like a really good guy, don't think he was given enough of a chance at the club though. That PSG goal, oh my lord. 7. Morata - Think I rate him a lot more highly than most here, desperately wanted him to succeed and it looked like he would the first few months. He had a massive attitude problem and I think that's the difference in the end. 8. Sturridge- Decent but I don't think he would've flourished as he did at Liverpool, here. 9. Michy- That goal against West Brom is my profile pic, looked decent on occasions but never took his chance when he got it. 10. Remy - Offside again and again, very average player. 11. Higuain - We got his ghost, really feel he would've been great for us in his prime but just seemed on the way out at a top level. 12. Pato - I remember chanting "we were there when Pato scored" at Villa Park. Don't remember much else. 13. Falcao- We got United's leftovers, which is saying something because he was already leftover when United got him
  21. This made me physically cringe, absolutely disgusting. We can all have opinions on players but the disrespect shown here is unbelievable and frankly disgusting. Surely as a Chelsea fan you'd want the best for the team that you support, how is that going to help Werner's confidence. Hope we can do something for Timo to show our support.
  22. Now, a lot of the discourse on Lukaku and Tammy has been the "Chelsea curse" that being our Number 9 is destined to fail. I'm not a superstious person, so I'm not giving much credence to that. Instead, I thought it'd be fun to rank our strikers of the last decade or so. This isn't including Drogba or Costa as frankly we know their places. So, I ask you shed enders to rank the following players: Tammy, Werner, Giroud, Morata, Higuain, Sturridge, Eto'o, Remy, Pato, Falcao, Batshuayi Feel free to add extra players I've missed
  23. Been watching a couple of training vids and can already tell Lukaku is a leader. Constant communication, so vocal. Just what we need leading the line.
  24. Banter Age of Arsenal has weirdly made them always turn up against us, quite embarrassing really.
  25. Gonna miss him, never nice to see one of our own go.
