    Courtois definitely gets a free pass from me for last season. Not just because of the injury it also because he had the worst Chelsea defence in two decades in front of him. At times last season the defending was shambolic and that would affect any goalkeeper.
    Those training videos are interesting but as G4 says, if there is a problem with intensity or whatever then surely that's as much down to the trainer/goalkeeping coach as it is the goalkeeper?
    I maintain he is a top class goalkeeper, I've seen enough of him so far at Chelsea and Athletico to be confident in that and one off season isn't going to change my opinion. Courtois (if he stays) really is the least of our problems anyway.

    We have to do our best to hold on to Courtois. He's a great keeper with so much more to come as well, granted it was an off season for him , but he wasn't the only one was he?
    If we lose him that means we will have lost two of the 6-7 only truly world class keepers playing today in a year. That's such a modern day Chelsea thing to do.
    Top class keepers don't grow on trees, we have to do our very best to keep him and to help him as much as we can with his development.

    It's not a case of Spurs being 'favourites'. They are simply way ahead of us in every aspect of their stadium build. We have so much to do before a brick is even laid.
    Tottenham will be there full time next year for a season and I'd wager we will move in for a few years from 18/19.

    He wasn't even that good against City mate. He did ok. Holding his own against the best in the league is spin of the highest order!
    I want him to breakthrough as much as anyone and agree that he was underused in the last half of the season but let's not go over the top. He needs a run of 8-10 games and in a deeper role too, but I'm pretty sure he ain't gonna get it.

    Just wishful thinking Barak.
     
    We saw what was happening under Jose this season and the performances were dreadful. He wasn't able to knock PSG out last year and they are even further ahead of us now.
     
    No, IMO we were beaten by a better side last night. No shame in that and little difference another coach would have made.

    Sigh - seems the club have played another blinder here. Deary me. I'm reading he heard first from his agent on the phone and not face to face. Brilliant. That's gratitude for you.
    One silver lining, though very small - at least we will get to say thanks and goodbye, something we were never afforded with Frank.

    Im with Davey. It will be strange and a lillte bit sad to see Jose at United but it wouldnt scare me. It wouldve done a few years ago  but not now, as something has changed with him, even second time round here it wasnt really the same. Love the guy but i think hes been found a bit and needs to do some adapting (he wont!).
     
    It will be fascinating to see the the sh*tstorms and controversies from the other side. We all know how it will go there, how it will play out and then how it will end. Doesnt worry me one bit. Its just he wont ever feel like 'ours' any more.I just hope there is no more fawning like there was on Saturday. Its not healthy.
     
    Oh well. On we move. Time to find the next legend. The club is still standing, or at least it was when i left it at 5pm on Saturday. Ill suspect it will be there this time next year too.

    I f**king loved Jose and will always consider him a legend, but anyone with half a brain cell should be able to see that this is for the best. It couldnt go on anymore.
     
    He'll get a rest and then be back to start his 3 year cycle somewhere else next Summer, whilst we pick up the pieces of this second coming. Its been toxic this season, worse than anything we've seen from him before. Its for the best, it really is....
     
    Thanks for everything Jose you loved us and we loved you. You cared, and thats why we loved you, i think even more than the trophies.. But one thing is for sure, there aint going to be a 3rd act.
