    Not the way I see it but, I see United finishing fourth and us being stuck in the UEFA League as a worse outcome for Chelsea FC than the risk of Liverpool wining the title. But if you'd rather Liverpool miss out even if that means we're playing Thursdays again then sure, let's hope United get something.

    It has to be a Liverpool win. City will win the league for sure anyway and we need every point advantage we can get if we are to have any chance of finishing fourth. Missing out on the CL is absolutely not an option for us at this time. And I mean that even if it meant Liverpool wining the league (which they won't).

    Two Transfer Window Ban?

    Well this a huge blow for all the clubs that take our sh*tty signings on loan after we've learned that we've signed another flop. What will the likes of Atletico and Milan do now?
  4. No, go for it. We'll be beaten by City either way. I'm so disillusioned that in all honesty i don't care an awful lot what we do. In terms of Sunday, tonight told nor taught us anything. In a rare moment of positivity, I will say that it was nice to see some youth players get on the park and do ok. I just wish they were getting their chance in a better and more stable Chelsea team rather than being looked on as our only hope and the pressure that entails.
  5. Quite right. Blooding them against City would leave them needing a transfusion. This is so typical of our fickleness. A win against 10 Swedish part-timers in their close season holiday and hey presto, we're good again. City are probably sh*tting themselves.
  6. We want you to stay, we want you to staaayyy, Maurizo Sarri, we want you to stay!!! Bring on sh*tty. Chelsea are back!!!
  7. I don't know what all the fuss is about. We're a goal up and comfortable against Sweden's finest collection of postmen, firemen and chefs. Can't see any reason why we won't beat City and Spurs. All is right with the world gain.
  8. Hmm, oh well, we'll be in the next round. Im looking forward to some people on here trying to convince the rest that the football under Sarri is better than it was under Conte. If Sarri could sign 11 players of his choice tonight I still don't see how this gets entertaining.
  9. Comfortable victory tonight. Lets not forget that Malmo were pretty terrible and they need to score tonight, so there's a very good chance they will not be sitting 11 men in the six yard box for 90 minutes. Hopefully the fans at the game will get behind the team tonight. I think their feelings were made clear on Monday and thus no repeat of booing and jeering is necessary and it certainly isn't helpful. As an aside, the idea that we have become 'spoilt by our success' in the Roman era, is a subjective point. I would describe it more as our expectations have been redefined and we have over this period become accustomed to being in the mix for the big titles year in and year out. I remember well the less glamorous days, I was at Bolton in '83 when we narrowly avoided 3rd tier football and I was at the City ground when Forest hit us for seven and numerous other grim days. But that was a very long time ago and ever since Hoddle arrived and swapped sausage and mash for pasta on the menu, Chelsea FC has been a different world. For a very large number of fans they have known nothing but success and they've only experienced it in today's media environment which I believe contributes to the way we view success and expectation. Up the Blues!

    Good help us on Sunday. City concede a couple of dubious penalties and have someone sent off away from home and still equalise courtesy of a blinder. City are home and dry for the next round. They'll be really looking forward to Sunday unlike us.

    Maurizio Sarri Officially Appointed

    What a great question, and one I can't think of an answer to. A bit tenuous but the only 'Chelsea' player that I can think of who has possibly improved since Sarri got the job at Chelsea is Bakayoko.
  12. I'm sure I read a report of that game where it suggested Sarri-ball went right out of the window because City pressed us so hard we ended up camped in our own box and ironically City in effect suffocated themselves and we caught them on breaks. So yes, I agree with PloKoon13, it was about the one game this season where Sarri-ball wasn't used (although not exactly by choice).

    He'd already signed and done all the photos with the shirt at Cardiff's stadium and they'd made the announcement of the signing on their site and social media etc. He was making a trip back to Nantes to say a few goodbyes and possibly something to do with his pet dog. For reasons we may never know, he made the journey aboard a light aircraft being piloted by a gas engineer (with some bad reviews and large debts according to various press) who by all accounts didn't hold a commercial pilots license. I've also read that he possibly didn't have the appropriate ratings for such a flight and his experience was largely gained taking parachutists up in fair weather. So why he was in someone else's aircraft flying a 15 million pound footballer across the busy freezing English channel in the dark, in poor weather, in a single engine aircraft remains to be told. I've read that the owner of the aircraft or at least its regular pilot had paid the landing fees and fuel bill with his credit card but he's not been heard from since. Then there was a Facebook post from the pilot following his arrival in Nantes saying that his ILS landing was a bit steep and that he's a bit rusty. It's a weird one where perhaps nobody has actually done anything wrong, but it has been a perfect recipe for a disaster. I can understand Cardiff feeling annoyed they've just lost 15 million and trying to get out of it, but maybe they'll learn to keep better tabs on expensive purchases in future. The signing was complete and it was on their watch. That's the way I see it. And also, Sala's family deserve to know exactly what the heck went on and how each individual was involved. It may transpire that he was well aware and wanted to take this option for travel or it may turn out he wasn't aware of the risks he was taking. I suspect the latter is closer to the truth.

    I don't dislike Martin Samuel and this article is absolutely bob on. Cardiff should be ashamed of themselves for trying to wriggle out of paying for Sala. And the other stuff he mentions about them handing contracts to agents sons who are little more than Sunday league footballers just highlights how bent and insanely awash with money football is. https://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/football/article-6718009/The-time-Cardiff-care-money-Emiliano-Sala-died.html

    Match Going Fans

    The jeering of the substitutions was fair enough, but the f**k Sarri-ball thing was a bit strong really, especially at that point. As futile as it was, the game wasn't over and miracles can happen and we could have maybe bundled in a couple for an extra 30 mins. Support the team until the final whistle and then give whoever hell. Having said that, the Sarri-ball chant came over a lot clearer on Twitter than on the BBC.
