    Vialli get well soon

    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.
  2. We need to try and do to them what West Ham did to us on Sunday, but I'm not sure we're capable of defending that strongly. I can only see us losing this, sadly.

    Jose Mourinho thread

    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.

    How much time will Sarri get?

    As long as we don't lose too many to clubs we should expect to beat, I hope that doesn't sound arrogant, but you know last season, Crystal Palace, Burnley etc.... We do have, what looks like an easier start (on paper) Hopefully that will give him time to get used to our league and sort out what he wants from the team. Of course as Chelsea fans we all know there can be a basket case quality to the club, which hasn't served us too badly in the past, but I am really hoping he will be given time. I hope he will bring a few of the younger players on, I for one would happily go without winning anything for a couple of years if we were able to develop our youth. I don't think the board share my view on that though.

    We've lost another true blue..

    Two of my Brothers are on that flag. RIP Paul and Micky, and all the other blues we've lost.

    Will Roman be forced to sell Chelsea?

    He could probably pass the club on to his kids, I think some of them were born here. Not sure if you need a visa to own the club or not, but I would imagine he has plans in place for just such an eventuality. He doesn't strike me as a Man who leaves a lot to chance.

    Jose Mourinho thread

    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.
  8. We could play for another hour and still not score.
  9. I'm not even suprised. This is turning into the Season before last. I can't wait for May and neither can some of our players by the looks if it.

    Regardless of the provocation and poor behaviour from the girls Dad, they can't keep him on. How can he ever criticise a footballer or a West Ham fan, for bad behaviour after this. He was quite good as a pundit but I can't see him coming back from this. Its disgusting.

    Booing of players

    I thought they were booing the Ref.

    Refs in Football Are Unacceptably Terrible.

    The lack of consistency is a problem for me. Going all the way back to the JT Anton Ferdinand controversy. Chris Foy reffed that game abysmally. We hardly got a decision all game, whereas QPR were getting free kicks and decisions to their benefit all game. Ferdinand elbows Terry in the head and HE (Ferdinand) gets the decision in his favour. Please note I am not commenting on the alleged racial slur, that is another matter. But sometimes its the little constant bad decisions rather than one big call in a match, that leads to frustration from players. But once again in that game we ended up with 9 men, which seems to happen to us a lot, maybe we do have a discipline problem although I suspect we are no worse than any other team, but I would be interested to see how often other teams end up with nine men on the pitch, this is the second time its happened to us this season. This in turn leads to frustration from players. The Man U game were Torres got a second yellow for diving and we ended up with nine men again. The replays showed that he was clearly caught by Evans, but noone called Evans a cheat, what's the difference between getting someone unfairly sent off for diving or actually diving and getting a pen ? ) I don't mind fair decisions and I accept that at times we benefit from dodgy ones as well, but I'd rather we didn't benefit from ropey decisions and all games we reffed fairly and consistently (not going to happen I know, due to Human fallibility)
  13. As poor as we have been that ref has had a shocker.... WILLY....YES

    Glad its not PSG tbh. Should be two good games, excited !
  15. Exactly I was at that game, and his reffing was a travesty. If anything Evans should have been hounded, he knew he caught Torres, but Torres got a second booking for diving. Then little pea scored a clearly offside goal and nearly caused a riot with his celebrations. As for the Spurs game, Clattenburg should be made to reimburse the fine we got for "failure to control our players". The failure was all on Twattenburgs part.
