    That Sterling Incident

    When I was in 6th grade and visiting family in the UK I was about to say "f*ck off" to a cousin but thought it too crude and said "bugger off" instead ...... that was a hilarious lesson.

    That Sterling Incident

    I thought you were comparing the losing of a job to a jaunt to the pub and was about to strongly disagree lol. Glad I caught my mistaken comprehension before posting it. While on the surface a lifetime ban for racial abuse makes sense I actually think a better approach is the one that was taken, if I'm not mistaken, not long back with some fans who engaged in anti-Semitic behavior/language where Roman offered to have them go to a holocaust museum and education course in order to reverse their ban. I'd support a lifetime ban for racism that can be overturned by the offender doing some sort of charity/community work towards the issue they are guilty of and potentially even some education course on the topic. Much rather see an effort to reform than just punish, but the punishment should obviously apply until the reform occurs.

    Wolves V Chelsea (PL) Wed 5th Dec 19:45 UK

    RLC scoring so much now he decided to let another player take his goal....bless him.

    Alvaro Morata

    A few things....... I remember saying that as long as Salah improved his shooting his pace would make him lethal.... I know, a regular mystic meg here. Also, I wanted to point out that the post where I suggested we put a shock collar on a Chelsea player got more likes than my joke about Gary's orgasmic response to Torres' infamous goal.................... I'm not sure if that's an indictment on us as Chelsea fans or me as a joke maker.....but I felt it worth mentioning......

    Thibaut Courtois

    As another poster put it, the only time he looked World Class while on the pitch with Chelsea players, he was the goaltender for Athletico Madrid. He might get back to where he was when first in Madrid, but he never reached those levels here. Despite that got pretty much anything he could ever ask for from the club and still spat in our faces when presented with the option of acting respectfully to get the move he wanted or like a total prat to force the move he wanted.

    Alvaro Morata

    In regards to toughening up Morata..... how about a shock collar that's designed to go off every time he lifts his arms in complaint to a ref with a double volt for when he does this while his arse is still on the ground from going down to easy?

    Alvaro Morata

    I can't believe my post on page 76 still doesn't have a single like..... wtf is wrong with you people?!??!?!

    Callum Hudson-Odoi

    I kind of feel it's a two way street with young players this talented...... if the club can't trust him to give him some regular minutes/opportunities in the first team, why should he trust that the club is the best place to advance his career? A big difference between failing to take your opportunities and just plain not getting any. If I was in his position and CFC said "sign a deal and take a loan" I'd probably just say "No thanks, but you might want to pop me in the shop window ASAP though".
  9. Why would CHO leave? I'm not saying I'm in this camp, but I'll play along. Why did Pogba originally leave MUFC? Why did Sancho leave MCFC? Maybe because they felt they could do better than not even making the bench of a BPL team...and they both did, and now could likely go where ever they want.....and I doubt CHO is so thick as to not notice this sort of trend where players with huge talent not getting a look in at top tier BPL clubs were able to flourish at top teams in other leagues and become the sort of player every club drools over after getting regular opportunities. Because how piss poor in confidence would CHO be to think he should take an extended deal where he can't get a game in when other top tier clubs look like they'll actually give him a go. I'm not saying CHO will leave, but if you can't see the reasons why he would consider it I suggest you're looking through some seriously tinted blue lenses.

    Welcome N’Golo Kante

    Well, he just signed a new 5 year contract so if the worst were to occur that should be a massive transfer fee to splurge on 4-5 mediocre players.....

    David Luiz back at Chelsea

    Bloody bold to return to the scene of the crime and attempt it again.

    Marcos Alonso

    be curious to see an analysis of how many points he's won us with his attacking and how many he's helped lose via his defensive errors.
  13. Love to see CHO start and if he does then I hope Giroud starts too.
  14. Sadly, I'll be even less confident if somehow Sarri lifts the title at the end of the season..... Money will be spent I just hope that it's spent well. By this I mean not spending 120-150 million on 3 average players but rather spend half that or so on one top player with the other spots being filled by youth/loanees etc. Considering the market, is there a huge gap between what our best youth/loanees can do and what 40million will get? But I don't expect to have a wish list of players incoming in the next few windows....mind, I'd be happy to see Sarri "backed" in getting some of the youth into the first team, as in backed with time and managed expectations....I was hoping for that this season but I wonder if I was either too optimistic or if the powers to be thought "hey, we're actually doing too good this season to jeopardize it with youths integration being prioritized"......... I would love to see this time next year the likes of Ampadu, CHO, Mount et al getting regular opportunities more than another 40mil or so spent on players I've never heard of (unless it's Azpiliqueta all over again, never heard of him prior but I'd take thatagain!).

    Jorginho is a Blue

    Was man marked out of the game by a barely trying Alli .... thought Barkley should have been brought on for him at the half with Kante taking that CM role. If the team is to rely on Jorginho as the midfield general he needs to learn how to operate effectively while being heavily pressed.... especially as he seems to offers next to nothing aside from his passing( not trying to be harsh, just realistic).
