    Tiémoué Bakayoko

    I think with the blue blinkers off we would all be screaming for a penalty if the roles were reversed. Torres did make a meal of it but from behind it doesn't take much contact to the foot/ankle/leg to make another player lose their balance or throw them off their stride. He was nowhere near the ball, it was a tame but stupid foul and we got hugely lucky. What made it more idiotic was he made the challenge as he was heading out of the area. Even if this was not a foul, all he had to do was wait another second to tackle him outside of the area and remove any risk of a penalty. Simple inexperience/over exuberance in my opinion. Other than that in my opinion he had a decent game, great if you take into account the caliber of the opposition. 3:10 mins for replay

    Random Rumours

    Agreed, take the 50 million from Oscar and add 30 million on top of that and there's Sanchez. That's close to Barca's front line and equal to Real's in my opinion. One can dream

    Chelsea paid hush money allegations

    When I read the initial articles about a premier league club being involved I immediately thought s**t I hope that wasn't us. The people who made that decision if true are probably long gone from the club but still puts us in a awful light. Edit....I just read that they say the money was paid two years ago. If true, well s**t
  4. He played Robben for us for quite awhile on the right. Back when we were using inverted wingers (Duff on left Robben on right), worked pretty well that year. Same for Madrid for awhile. Sure isn't working for Jose now.

    The John Terry Appreciation Thread

    Most people using that to discount Terry are kids writing lists adding their own criteria for what to qualify and what not to. Simple fact is that Terry has been employed by Chelsea FC since he was 14. But yeh I do see how with that criteria some would view it otherwise http://www.footballtop10s.com/10-one-club-men/ http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/football/article-2607656/John-Terry-greatest-one-club-men-A-salute-footballs-loyal-servants.html http://www.squawka.com/news/one-club-players/240334

    Diego "the guv'nor" Costa

    Some people do need to be wound up or angry to perform at certain tasks or at certain levels, everybody is different, what is not different is how you focus it. Taking it out on other players and referee's isn't controlled aggression. It's just stupid. Obviously Costa and or Conte have found a way for him to channel all that aggression into something far more productive. And it's f*cking wonderful to watch

    Chelsea still held his contract. Could also say technically yes lol

    Comparing Diego Costa to a "brawny canary" is genius lol. Good article

    Antonio Conte - Now Officially Manager

    We did lose to Arsenal and Liverpool.....we all know and have seen what Mourinho's reactions would have been. My viewpoint is you can respect someone for their talent, and appreciate how good they are at what they do, without liking them, and that's how I viewed Mourinho. Too much drama, too much angst, too much finger pointing and too much us or me against the world. It got really tiresome, He was not always like that, but it got bad towards the end and at several other points. There are managers who are born winners, but will not b***h, moan and complain and point fingers constantly, I'm truly hoping Conte is one of them. Signs are good thus far.

    Eden Hazard

    Personally I think they just gave less of a s**t overall, whatever it's cause was, not that they played s**t on purpose. When you're at an elite level in any sport, any negative change can substantially affect performance because the margins are so small.

    Antonio Conte - Now Officially Manager

    I don't think Costa would contemplate trying it. Attitude in any team, corporation, business entity or organization stems from the top. Jose is a great manager. But he was not last season. He was behaving like a 5 year old. It makes sense that those employees "beneath" him assumed they could act in that manner as well. I truly believe Jose will grow and learn from this. But honestly I hope that he continues as last season and we all get to watch Man U implode.Unfortunately I doubt it, he's an egomaniac but he's also incredibly intelligent. Guess we will see which side wins.

    Thank You Mr Roman Abramovich

    From what I have seen GREAT teams do not adapt their game, they impose their game upon their opponents. A truly great team, you know what they are going to be coming at you with. You just can't do s**t about it.

    Antonio Conte - Now Officially Manager

    I wonder if the wage bill included our "loan army" which other clubs then pay us who pay the loaned player? Like the previous poster said, how we have such a high wage budget with such a small squad is very surprising

    Eden Hazard

    What's the point in having one of the world's best players if he isn't even trying anymore. Unless his attitude changes substantially I'd be completely ambivalent about him leaving if the price was right
