  1. Congratulations and huge praise to Thomas Tuchel, his players and staff. I had wanted Frank to stay and was not best pleased when he was sacked and as I really didn't know too much about TT, was fairly negative about his appointment. I feel so guilty for this and oh so wrong!! The guy has in double quick time, turned us from a disorganised rabble into an exciting, organised, passionate, spirited team, and the turnaround in form of some of the players is nothing short of miraculous. We are now being variously talked about as real CL contenders, a good bet for the Premier League next seaso
  2. A 1-1 draw AWAY at Real Madrid in the semi-final of the Champions League and we are all feeling disappointed? This is testament to TT's massive impact on our Club at every level. With good finishing we could/should have been 3-0 at half time. The game plan was superb, we were set up perfectly and almost every player did what was expected of them and delivered top class performances. TT also gets the subs correct and at the right time. Had we been offered a draw before kick off, we would have grabbed it with both hands, so i hope that the players are not too down with not winning and will fini
  3. The club very rarely speaks to us the fans and I just think that with an issue this potentially damaging to the relationship with it's fans, it might have thought it should try to explain its thinking behind taking part and pulling out
  4. I probably sound like a stuck record on this point, but why is it that Chelsea is the only one of the "big 6" that feels it does not have to apologise for its shocking mistake of joining the ESL? Just a half baked statement on the website, the PR at our club is pathetic. I am not seeking a personal impassioned speech from Roman, just an acknowledgment that the Club made a mistake by taking us the fans, the players and Manager for granted when we had no part in the debacle. ALL of the other 5 have done the decent thing, why do Chelsea feel they don't need to????
  5. Apparently Woodward actually resigned because he was forced to join the ESL by the Glazers. If this is proven to be true, he will be a hero with Man Ure fans !!
  6. So what is the general opinion on what the fall out from the ESL participation is likely to be? I think that the Owners and maybe by association, the Board of the Clubs should be penalised. HEAVY fines and the possibility of having their "Fit and Proper Person" registrations rescinded or put on probation which if withdrawn would effectively force them to sell. The Clubs themselves should escape any punishment as the Manager, coaches, players etc. had no part in this fiasco. So hurting them with points deductions or banning them from competitions is not fair. In fact it was probably the
  7. So the Spuds are going for another Chelsea cast off (AVB, Jose and now Sarri) will they never learn ? 🤣🤣
  8. I always thought it was the genuine "Roman" 😉
  9. Last para is so true Spiller, despite the breaking news, the team didn't have the stomach for it
  10. Come on Roman, Bruce, Marina & Eugene How about a bit of an apology ?????
  11. ALWAYS very happy to be proved wrong. Well done Chelsea 👏
  12. I was looking forward to watching this game, but after the ESL fiasco, have no interest in the result. That's a lie, deep down I still want Chelsea to win, I just don't care if we do or not. First time in over 50 years I have felt like this (although nearly did when we sacked Ancelotti)
  13. and therein lies Tottenham Hotspur present and future !!
  14. Billionaire Robert Kraft, owner of Kraft Foods and the New England Patriots, was once asked if he would follow Kronke and John W Henry into buying an EPL Club and he commented "I would never invest in a League that had promotion and relegation, How could you run a business on that basis?" This sums up the Club owners attitude to football. Remove all risk of jeopardy = guaranteed profit, but only if someone buys your product 😉
  15. I hope and pray that Chelsea are the first club to say "we got this wrong, completely underestimated the strength of our fans feeling and apologise unreservedly". Do I think that this will happen? not a f**king chance. As Just pointed out, if we honestly believe that Roman gives a toss about Chelsea fans, we are sadly misguided. This Club is an investment, albeit an exciting one for him, but an investment never the less, which he was offered the right money for, he would sell in less than a heartbeat. I have NEVER felt so alienated by our club, I have supported them through the highs and
