  1. “Covid was around most of last season” season lasts 9 months. Started in August 19. Covid stopped it in March last year . It restarted for 2 months how the heck is your statement accurate pal?
  2. I’m leaving the forum early today ! The so called bottling on the pitch is far outweighed on here by fans who quite plainly are not that, a fan usually supports the team on match day. Take a look in the mirror and maybe another sport is better suited to your whining whingeing purpose, one where you can pick a team or athlete that is guaranteed to bring you the instant gratification of plastic glory that you all hunger so much.

    https://www.squawka.com/en/diego-costa-stats-next-club-transfer/ he will be looking for at least a 2 year deal so that rules out Chelsea, would gooners pay him 150K a week? but on a short term performance based contract he’s proven at prem level
  4. They have the best squad in the prem so 5 out is manageable & don’t think that will work in cfcs favor. based upon Frank’s tactics and recent results with other direct rivals he’ll focus on being tight at the back at the expense of the attack with no surprises like wee Billy starting. Can’t see Zyech starting which is a shame as he seemed to bring the X factor (playmaker talisman what ever you wanna call that type of player - Hazard, Fab etc) that is sorely missing from the starting 11 recently. So the score will likely be a bore draw either 0-0 or 1-1. Not what is required by most fans
  5. No loyalty in football anymore ! midway point in a season the likes nobody has seen before, look at the news people are dropping like flies, club today is 6th, 6 points off the top. But let’s all throw our toys out of our prams cus Chelsea aren’t top because after spending all that money they should be, and it’s all the managers fault. Winkers 😉
  6. CAN THE CLUB PLEASE MOVE HIM ON NEXT MONTH TO ARSENAL, ON A KNOCK DOWN FEE PLEASE ? no bottle, no mettle, no grit, no heart I could go on , glad if I never see him put on that shirt again cus today wasn’t the first time , oh no not by any means, weak feeble defender hence my Arsenal recommendation he would work out good for them I think
  7. Dave club captain but really needs moving on he’s given the club great value & service would he get in city or dippers squad NO AC not good enough for a club aspiring to be elite again would he get in city or dippers squad NO Rudiger would he get in city or dippers squad NO Emerson would he get in city or dippers squad NO Alonso would he get in city or dippers squad NO Jorginho would he get in city or dippers squad NO Kova would he get in city or dippers squad NO is CHO better than Jasper Gronjaker ? 140 mill quid of kraut super subs would they ge
  8. Never saw JT once rolling around on the floor outside his box while the opposition attacks then scores. So much for keeping a clean sheet for 15-20. Not Chelsea player standard period.
  9. Better half than I expected tbh, hopefully villas gamble not to rotate will backfire and their legs will go chasing the game. Got to keep them out for at least 15-20 for the fatigue to really kick in, getting #2 would put it to bed but recently nothings been easy for this team .
  10. Lot of rotation surprised Kepa not back in the line up with the mouth watering prospect of AC & Rudiger in the middle of the defence. Hopefully it’s not another loss and a decent performance either way. Unfortunately can’t see anything but suffering again today, hope I’m proved wrong as don’t like to be a bottler !
  11. Villa are a very dangerous opponent, There’s either going to be a reaction and players rally round, or we’ll see a bleeding shambles again like the last 3 league matches (WHU got fortunate w late goals), lose this then City up next , Roman doesn’t tolerate that kind of form generally. Would like to see Werner up top, Pulisick on left, CHO other side, no Jorginho why not Billy to start w Kante +1 , can’t be any worse, Mendy Silva & the usual suspects at the back. Hope to see that much needed reaction and put Aston Grealish to the sword tomorrow!
  12. A 2 Bob 2 nil down half. Didn’t bother showing up today. Soft pen, they’re fired up probably had Christmas dinner cancelled by Arteta while our players look well off the pace like they pigged out and got drunk yesterday! Difficult to come back now realistically but one never knows, let’s keep the goal difference respectable at least!
  13. In 1977 at 13 yrs old went to Highbury for Boxing Day lost 0-3 but watching from the Clock End could see our fans ‘took’ the North Bank we expected to lose and taking their end was the prize that day. next day Dec 27th was I was at the Bridge Shed End for the Pikeys who for a good few minutes before KO ‘took’ the Shed, that was a shockingly scary surprise walking down the terraces with Chelsea fans retreating up towards us all bloodied up, Chelsea won 2-1! no rest and not much rotation back then, I expect a different outcome this Boxing Day!!
  14. Arteta rested a lot tonight for Boxing Day, incl SSB Willy Turney and goalie at first I wrongly thought the b team looked better than the team that lost to Carlo other day but have to say they’re equally as gash. Either way it’s either the best time to play them (my view) or the sky’s going to fall down on Boxing Day regardless of form etc.
  15. Super Frank and the team have given us all the best gift of the season 3 points and 3 goals vs the Pikeys with a clean sheet. I’m certain AFTV will be crying into their 🍻 as well come Boxing Day. Happy Christmas and Carefree let’s Party!
  16. I’m gonna have a gripe re certain players in game performance more often 😅😂🤣
  17. Werner, Tammy Pulisic Mount done nothing. A few games ago we were talking about how well at least 2 of them were playing and contributing to the clean sheets and not getting beaten. We’ve lost our full backs and 2 wide players who score and assist. So before the inevitable happens and the ensuing Frank out meltdown, once again it’s not a normal season and the lucks run out just in time for Chrimbo a bit like being a fan of Boris and his inept mob of ministers really!
  18. Playing Kante out of the holding position has ceded them the midfield. Jorginho can’t shield and Rice is taking over. Another chance gone begging by Temo, we’ll be relieved to get in ahead but there’s still time 😨
  19. Correct me if I’m wrong he’s only started a the central striker a couple of times and mostly been deployed on the left, he’s bagged 8 goals so the problem wasn’t adapting to change of league or club. He’s been in front of goal in positions to score a few since his last and fluffed his lines. Not sure you can assign blame to his lack of preferred starting position through the middle maybe confidence coupled with fatigue. Either way it’s obvious the squad needs more depth in the forward positions and this should be Ollys last season a world class replacement is needed as Tammy is not that player
  20. I’m digging your unbridled optimism re this upcoming fixture, when results didn’t matter and no C had dreamt of the Premier League this was always a match with a lot of needle on and off the pitch. It’s a Derby and the Pikeys so as you know form book means nowt, so to try and temper your lack of enthusiasm they usually turn us over when we are favorites and we most definitely are not, so ......
  21. Where have you lot been all these years there’s 2 classic Chelsea slumps either the November one or this the dreaded Christmas complete lack of form. This one I can definitively say is the festive one ! Naive pushing up with their ability to counter at pace. I’m off prefer Trumps I won tweets to the sack Frank replies on the way on here
  22. Agreed he’s not shown anything much since his covid episode. Shame cus he looked class before that sickness but I reckon it’s affected him more than most in football who got it mostly wo symptoms . Either way he’s a passenger mostly and gives it away far too easily.
  23. Shame the club can’t pay Drinky off and sell Kepa in the next window both are on silly wages, ‘what a waste!’
  24. We get Atleti, last year Bayern City get Borussia Monchengladbach, last season round of 16 they got Atalanta, season before Lyon, before that Shaktar !! We get a 1 window transfer ban from FIFA, City get a fine from UEFA for the same offences Pep not leaving until he wins this comp with City, we all know how corrupt the Middle Eastern states that ally with Saudi Arabia are, they own City, UEFA is bent as a nine bob note, its fixed !
