  1. I'm chuffed, obviously our scatter gun managerial process is bound to make us all a bit nervous, and no one wants this to end badly. Having said that I feel that Lampard understands the club, and crucially the owner in a way other managers simply didn't get. We know it will be a challenge and he won't be able to make new signings, but this could be a positive thing. We have a great youth team and there'll be none of that, "well you got your signings, now we expect results" mind set. I know he's inexperienced as a manager but he is not inexperienced when it comes to the unique challenges of CFC. I fully expect him to be better than AVB, Scolari and Sarri. Hazard going is huge loss obviously, but I hope the fans don't turn on him if we have a dodgy season. I'd be happy to settle for a few years of failure if we actually start to build something. Welcome back Frank, let the West Ham triggering commence.
  2. I feel great, and while I know I shouldn't listen to fans of other clubs, who denigrate us for being a chaotic, mad house of a club. I love that we seem to thrive on chaos and still keep winning things.
  3. Well that went better than I expected I must say. Brilliant second half from us, and a very fitting send off for Hazard. I so glad Cech is coming home next season he stopped them from getting a proper thrashing last night. When that 4th goal went in I nearly spilled my wine. Just a word on Ozil, I think Winston Bogarde was more industrious than him when sitting on our bench. I'm feeling very happy this morning.
  4. I've been telling myself that I'm not too bothered about this game, and just want this weird season to be over, especially as things don't seem to be going our way out in Baku. But now that the day is here I am getting more and more nervous and excited. I think watching and reading reports of the epic journeys of both sets of fans who have made their way there has perked me up.
  5. We should hang on to Hazard and take the financial hit next year, we'll be saving money by not signing anyone during our ban anyway.
  6. My Husband is pleased as he can reignite his Man-love for Mourinho now he is no longer at Manu. Funny to see their fans rejoicing over this, especially as they gloated so much over getting him. "It's the job he really wanted" "The chosen one" "We're classy and don't sack managers like Chelsea do" Obviously they have found the post Fergie reality a sobering experience. They could have years of instability and managerial round-about fun. I wonder if Spurs are nervous, although why would Pocchettino go there at the moment?
  7. Not sure if this is the right place to put this or if someone has already posted it, but I can't find anything about it. Anyway one of our all time legends has been battling cancer but now he is on the mend...https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=26&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=2ahUKEwje86zTvfLeAhW_wAIHHbvFAa4QFjAZegQIBBAB&url=https%3A%2F%2Fnews.sky.com%2Fstory%2Fex-chelsea-star-gianluca-vialli-reveals-year-long-battle-with-cancer-11564272&usg=AOvVaw3qEMC9BrVvnUiUkX4BACqk I hope all goes well for him.
  8. It was nice of him to do a tribute to the late, great, Aretha Franklin, albeit a few weeks too late. Respect indeed. He won't walk away, Utd will have to sack him, which is delicious as their fans were so smug over our managerial revolving door all these years. Easy to keep the continuity going when you have a Fergie in charge, that will never happen again imo, so they better get used to replacing their manager every 3 years, unless they get Poch. On a human level I feel sad that Mourinho has been reduced to this, he looks unhinged and on the verge of some sort of breakdown. He needs a break then a stint managing Portugal, to regain some balance.
  9. I think losing his Father really hit him hard, he has always had a slightly histrionic personality, but he also had a humorous side to him, which appears to be gone. He is no longer the young, all conquering hero, standing beside Fergie and Wenger he looked like the newcomer, now he just looks jaded and stressed. Living away from his family can't help either. I still love him for what he did at Chelsea, but I must admit part of me is relishing the fact that ManU won't be winning the league anytime soon. For his own sake though I'd love him to come good somewhere else, preferably managing Portugal.
  10. I'm a bit concerned about Didier Deschamps, I really hope he isn't ill. He looks about 70 lately.
  11. Apart from turning round a team of players who had declined alarmingly last season, winning the league in his first season, and even getting a tune out of Victor Moses, I think the thing I most like about our Manager is the complete lack of drama and his good natured demeanour. Especially when we went through a sticky patch early on this season, he didn't hide or throw a strop at journalists, he took all the snide interviewing on the chin, and was honest. I hope we manage to hang on to him for a few years, I don't expect any club to keep a manager for longer than 3 or 4 years these days, but a period of calm would be most welcome.
  12. I recorded Match of the Day yesterday but I don't think I'll bother watching it. Its been a busted flush since SKY started showing the Football anyway. I did find the send off a bit cheesy but still enjoyed it non the less. The w*nkfest over Stevie G's retirement from the media will take some beating, so what if we went over the top, we will never see JT's like at Chelsea, ever again. If it annoys the likes of Garth Crooks and and Alan "elbows" Shearer, then so much the better.
  13. To be honest I couldn't hear any Judas chants on the telly. It didn't sound like the whole ground was chanting. I did hear your not special anymore, which is fair enough, and comes under banter imo. He was our best ever manager (so far) but agree for the time being the love story is over. Its not a Jose thing, its a Manu thing...Well for me anyway.
  14. The only way this makes sense is if Conte has had a bust up behind the scenes and wants to leave. Surely not even our board would be this stupid. I'm calling bs ( with fingers crossed)
