  1. No individual player, including Lukaku, would have changed the disaster that this season has been so far.
  2. I don't quite buy into this pre-season story, at least not completely. Explain to me why Willian and Azpilicueta - and Courtois - were not suffering from a lack of preparation?
  3. We've got to move on - and quickly. The club is bigger than everyone, so let's brush ourselves off and get right behind the team for the remainder of the season. Jose will be fine.
  4. Chelsea Football Club - never a dull moment (unfortunately). Good luck to the team - let's start winning again. Best wishes and thanks to Jose for all his achievements with the club.
  5. http://twitter.com/WhoScored/status/669564108937822208/photo/1
  6. Interesting interview with del Bosque which includes his thoughts on Diego. http://www.theguardian.com/football/2015/nov/10/vicente-del-bosque-spain-english-football-style-ronaldo-messi
  7. The Madrid inhabitants say their city has three months of winter and nine months of hell :-)
  8. A lot will depend on Hazard's reaction - it will either motivate him or he will finish up elsewhere. I hope it's the former.
  9. Couldn't put it better myself! http://www.chelseafc.com/news/latest-news/2015/09/giles-smith_s-thursday-thoughts.html
  10. Time to circle the wagons and then fight our way out of this by going on a winning streak.
  11. Quite frankly if Arsenal are going to use Costa as a scapegoat for a dreadful performance then they are in a river in Egypt. The yellow cards were correct and Gabriel undid himself. Yes Costa could have got a harsh red for raising his hand ( it wasn't even a slap) but to be looking for a ban is just being sore losers.
  12. I can only think that John Terry would only be delighted to see his role beginning to pass to an excellent young player who is capable of taking the torch into the future.
  13. Great news. Looking at him chatting with Oscar and Costa on the official site gives the impression that he's settled in already!
  14. Probably true but the Aviva max capacity is 50 thousand as far as I know.
  15. I resemble that last remark! The whole thing was quite complex, promoter muscling the local authority, people looking for compensation and good old greed of course.
  16. Not directly topic related but I found this article on the Dortmund way interesting. http://www.bbc.com/sport/0/football/29624410
  17. Lovely header! http://www.dailymotion.com/embed/video/x26hq2g
  18. Personally I would like to see Hazard improving his overall game, which (IMO) needs to develop if he is to be the superstar he thinks he is.
  19. Good luck to Fernando. That insurance goal against Barcelona in the 2012 CL semifinal (and the Fulham Broadway pub reaction - check youtube) will stay with me.
  20. Time now to get behind Torres for the coming season - he's a Chelsea player and while I understand disappointment, enough is enough.
  21. Drogba could also be useful as an impact battering ram to break down the parked buses which gave us such problems last season.
