  1. 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?
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. Two of my Brothers are on that flag. RIP Paul and Micky, and all the other blues we've lost.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. We could play for another hour and still not score.
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. I thought they were booing the Ref.
  13. 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)
  14. As poor as we have been that ref has had a shocker.... WILLY....YES
