  1. I think we will end third and don’t share the pessimism many on here have. That said, I remain an optimist and always do when it comes to Chelsea. City first, ‘always the victims’ second and chants of ‘it’s happening again’ ring out across the Bridge as Spuds once again run out of steam.
  2. The respect the players show to Rob Green says it all. Sometimes it’s what happens behind the scenes that counts, and he is clearly a great club man. I watched him in the warm up away to Leicester, last league game of the season, and he worked so hard. He is obviously a true professional and appreciates being a part of Chelsea FC and all that is brilliant about our club. I hope the guy stays with us and undertakes a coaching roll of some sort, to be honest he appears to be doing this already.
  3. What an impressive second half. Well done Chelsea. Bring on next season.
  4. I should know better at my age, but I can’t help but be excited about tonight’s final. We came close to winning the league cup and I really hope we can pull this off tonight. Another trophy, another triumph over a London club. A win will certainly go some way to easing the gloom that is descending due to Saturday’s forthcoming UCL final.
  5. The most inaccessible European final in history. The only way to do this in a day (well perhaps a day and a bit) was with Thomas Cook. You know the score treated like cattle, next to no leisure time. I did one of these deals with England in a World Cup tournament years and said never again. Treated like we were non-human. Independent flight options I looked at involved waiting for a change in Istanbul for 10 hours! The most civilised option regarding flight times etc. was leaving on Saturday 25 May and coming back on Saturday 1 June. WTF! The logistics of this final make it virtually impossible to attend and guess what the final is mid-week. Mid f***ing week! And just to top it all off I remind myself that we have already qualified for the CL and this is non-essential but nice to win final. Arsenal really need this and the fact their fans have responded in a similar manner speaks volumes about how rubbish the whole set up is. To afford the costs you need to work but to get to the final you need time. In addition, the compliance regarding visas and form filling meant that we had to make quick decisions before knowing whether we would be able to go. Your point about the new stadium. We do need a new stadium. It’s doubtful we would always fill a 60,000 stadium but we would on occasions. The amount of Chelsea fans attending the UEL final has absolutely no bearing on whether we would fill the new stadium. In terms of people being offended by the number of Chelsea fans going – I just don’t buy this. The only embarrassment here is UEFA
  6. Hello Chelsea supporter from Holland.
  7. I can really relate to your post and like you have a fear that it will all come crashing down. Newer fans are definitely more spoilt but they might ague they simply have higher expectations. I remember a time when I worried Chelsea might go out of existence. Now some fans biggest worry is they won’t win the Premier League.
  8. I am sure there are people in his life who love him...it’s just they won’t be Chelsea fans. His performance today was poor. He is slow, does not work and on the one occasion he had the ball to his feet in front of goal he f**ked it up. I thought the atmosphere today was good, if only home games could be this much fun.
  9. No doubt Chelsea will be tired but I expect full priority to be given to getting third place. Being the highest placed team in London has its merits. I shall be there and expect a knackered Chelsea to lose 2.0 but you never know. Hazard’s last game in the premier league, it’s been a pleasure watching him play. 3rd place and two finals ...bring on next season.
  10. I get the impression you are on a wind up
  11. There is so much pessimism on here it’s unhealthy. You would not believe that we are actually third in the league, reached one cup final and might reach another. A sense of perspective is needed, or people might view elements of our support as glory hunters. Are things really that bad? Yes, we are not where we were a few years back. But let’s keep an open mind. All things considered Sarri has had a successful first season and no doubt will have learnt a lot about the PL. Surely it can’t be all doom and gloom? People saying, we are a laughing stock and we are f***ed. I just don’t buy it. But let’s say people are right and we are really are doomed. A silver lining will be the tourists will stop coming and we will get our atmosphere back at the Bridge. But in all seriousness, we are not doomed. Chelsea are in my blood and I want them to win but sometimes people need to lighten up.
  12. It’s happening again, Tottenham Hotspur it’s happening again...absolutely hilarious that we might end up higher than them after all their hype in the media. Can’t believe how negative some people are on here. The league table does not lie and we are currently the third best team in England. Not bad and a lot better than many of us might have anticipated around February. I am looking forward to UCL next year, well done Chelsea.
  13. Cahill deserved more respect and is not as bad a footballer as some on here suggest. He won it all and you could never accuse him of being lazy. He has my thanks for all he has done for Chelsea. His ego is small compared to some of those clowns at MUFC.
  14. My point is that if the video showed Chelsea fans other people would not be calling it banter.
