  1. I might be the only person who doesn't mind the 3 logo at all. It's a bit different. In fact, I am going to say it is an improvement on the Yokohama mess (complete with touch of red that has been a sh*t stain on our last few kits). I am a fan of the leaked drafts I have seen for all 3 kits (not the knock off palace lookalike pictured above). One last thing; they are called shirts, not jerseys. Thanks.
  2. That is quite a statement. Can I query what data you are using to arrive at this conclusion?
  3. It's nauseating, but I honestly wouldn't be surprised if they were told to mention it in their first interviews. Has a new Liverpool signing ever not mentioned their world famous karaoke signing support?! I think it says a lot that he moved there, and is still adored by the majority of Chelsea supporters.
  4. The fact that Hoddle feels the need to tell everyone that Tottenham are 'bigger' than Chelsea, and then admits that Mourinho himself probably doesn't even know how much of a 'big club' Tottenham are, is quite amusing. Couldn't care less who is 'bigger' in all honesty, but Tottenham being labelled as this monster club just because they have a shiny new stadium isn't going to get taken seriously by me, sorry. Win a couple of trophies, maybe a league title or two, and then maybe the conversation can be had without sniggers. Hoddle then decides that Mourinho and Tottenham is a "good marriage" . Let's be honest, it's a marriage of convenience at best. It's a job that Mourinho wouldn't have even considered at any point in his career until now, at his lowest, generally considered a dinosaur of modern football. The fact he was prepared to take it mid-season, with Tottenham sitting mid-table is representative of the desperation levels in play here. Mourinho has won trophies everywhere he has managed for a full season or more, so even in his current form I would expect them to be able to sh*thouse their way to a pot or two under him. BUT, if Tottenham became the first and only club ever managed by Jose Mourinho that didn't achieve silverware, wouldn't that just be the most 'Spursy' thing to have happened ever?* *Since they came third in a two horse title race
  5. Regarding Mourinho's comments. I don't entirely disagree with what he is saying. It is still a young team, and as a unit, we still have plenty to prove against the top sides. If anything it was a rather obvious opinion to give rather than it being anything radical on his part. Losing to United twice wasn't good enough, and Frank & Co would say no different I am sure. We certainly have competed against Liverpool twice though, and could have won both games. The fact that we are even being compared to the top sides speaks volumes about what Frank & Jody have done in such a short space of time though; at the start of the season there was talk of us being mid-table. Top 6 was a dream, top 4 was unimaginable. I do feel that Jose praised Frank through gritted teeth somewhat. The once 'Chelsea man' has never seemed more disconnected from the club as a whole in my opinion. Is is sad to see in a way, but he very much chose this path when he went to United and decided to go to war with Chelsea at every possible opportunity. I have said it before, but he could have at least tried to maintain his legacy as having a connection with Chelsea fans, but that has long since gone. As for Jody's reaction, I think he should have known better than to get drawn in to be honest. Jose is doing what he is currently paid to do; give his opinion. Jose has nothing to lose, and furthermore will enjoy any sort of spat played out in the media. It will make him seem relevant, which is pretty much all he can hope for as an out of work Manager who has turned to punditry. We on the other hand have everything to lose; momentum, confidence, concentration, mentality. It's all been flowing very nicely, the last thing I would do is get involved with Jose over social media. Immature and unnecessary.
  6. Right, here goes. First and foremost I must admit I am bitterly disappointed with the result. I was nervous before the game, seeing us like up with the likes of Mount & Abraham for United away is unchartered territory. I was worried we would concede early and get wiped out in a men against boys sort of way. I was pleasantly surprised though. We undoubtedly started the better team, and despite being guilty of creating our own problems with sloppy mistakes, we were playing the more fluid football, and edging every department. It was anything but men against boys. Impressive at Old Trafford, however poor they may be, they have just spent circa £150 in the transfer window. Then the penalty. Always been a fan of Zouma, but this was a disaster class performance. We seemed a little rattled after the goal, but fight our way back into the game and by the start of the second half we were once again the team dominating possession & territory. Let’s not pretend we were hammering the door down, but once again we were edging it against United at Old Trafford. That’s where I can take positives. Obviously the mistakes that gifted the United goals from this point are now well documented, and the naivety of how we played into their hands is something we have to work on fast. Kante and Ruidiger coming back into the side will make a lot of difference. In the end we must concede we were well beaten, but the score line undoubtedly flatters United. They avoided conceding by the finest of margins, twice, and we gifted them the all important opening penalty. There is the question mark over the foul on Abraham for the second which changed the dynamic of the game, but to be honest it was just one of those days were everything seemed to go their way. It happens sometimes, I am just gutted it happened on Franks debut. I think there are positives to take; Mount being one, but we need Kante, Ruidiger, Hudson-Odoi and James in the starting 11 as soon as possible. This was always going to be a hard season, and it might well get worse before it gets better, but I am still fully on board and I can genuinely see what Frank is trying to do, and I like it.
  7. Because Frank played it down to a room full of journos? Did you honestly expect him to come out and reveal all the details of what went on behind the scenes?
  8. Imagine being so sore about a debate on a public forum, that you wake up the next day and the first thing you do is log on and post this.... I'm so glad i'm not 'that guy'.....
  9. None of what was speculation? "It" ? That's pretty broad, you might want to quote what you are specifically rambling on about before you start patting yourself on the back about anyone changing their mind. If you try really hard I reckon you might be able to find a post of mine where I specially referred to some things being speculation, and some things not being speculation... imagine that?!
  10. Exactly. It reeks of a panic sale, i.e. £8M is better than getting nothing and keeping a potentially disruptive presence at the club. Why would we choose to sell to a direct rival? Why has he not been linked with any other club? It just doesn't stack up...
