  1. Mount not starting. As it's not 5 yet can I switch to Pulisic first scorer?
  2. Ah yeah makes sense. Was very weird to have them in the West Stand. Tons of low key Dutch fans in tonight too but fair play, we'd do the same most likely.
  3. That was one of the maddest games I've ever been to, from the action on the pitch to the crowd behaviour. Here are some.of the Ajax fans that weren't there. Did they talk about that on TV? Van Der Beek ran to them after their 4th goal. Bloke on front of me was going mental at them.
  4. Anyone see MOTD tonight? Lineker made a comment about Frank and his young players passing all their trials, and Shearer started laughing right away and then Ian Wright started laughing in delay. Am I alone in missing the gag? I had fast forwarded through most of their chatter on the previous matches tonight.
  5. Not the best pic taken from the West Lower but liked this from the MHL last night
  6. On the coach up to Burnley! Come on Chels!
  7. Loved the film, really need to check out the show, cheers for the reminder!
  8. Ploughing through the last couple of seasons of Gotham on Netflix at the moment. It's a silly OTT show that I keep bingeing and burning out on, it's generally good to stick on while I'm doing something else. Just downloaded the last season to the tablet for the journeys to and from Burnley!
  9. Joker was decent and Joaquin Phoenix was amazing, but I'm a big fan of 70s/80s films and to me it took lots of elements from King of Comedy, Taxi Driver, Dog Day Afternoon, Network, Falling Down as well as seminal Batman comics like The Dark Knight Returns and Killing Joke and didn't really add that much to them. I also didn't really buy De Niro as a talk show host, he's not a funny guy. I know this makes me sound like an old fart, I liked it but it didn't blow me away. The new Scorsese film, the Irishman, is amazing though, I saw a preview of it in connection with the London Film Festival, it'll be on Netflix in December I think, and De Niro is great in that one, once you take a couple of minutes to get over the weird de-aging technology.
  10. A great cameo today, really tore through them. Seems like he's mostly keeping his head down and working hard in training, and he should definitely start a game soon. I really hope he comes good, he and CHO could be like the days of Duff and Robben on the wings.
  11. Yep he was great today, and reminded me of Hazard too in his desire and ability to beat player after player. He seems pretty much unplayable from a defensive point of view.
  12. Second half much better, especially that 10-15minutes around the goal. Not the best game but 3 points after an international break against dogged opponents is nothing to sneeze at!
  13. Fairly flat and sloppy first half and the ref has been a disgrace
  14. Line-up is in: Kepa, Azpilicueta, Tomori, Zouma, Alonso, Jorginho, Mount, Barkley, Willian, Hudson-Odoi, Abraham am thinking 2 or 3-1 but would love a clean sheet
  15. Just wanted to say hi. I'm a Chelsea fan living in Brighton, but raised in South London. Officially pledged allegiance to the Blues back in 82 on the insistence of a school bully, but it wasn't in my heart till the 90s, and I thank him to this day! The return of Frank has really grabbed me, and seeing all the academy boys come through, and I'm going to every game I can this season - been to every home game so far and have started the away thing now too - after failing to get tickets for Norwich and Wolves, I was at Southampton and have tickets for Burnley and Watford, and planning to go to as many as I can. Exciting times
