    I meant in the context of the fact we’ve lost it the last 3 times we’ve been in it.

    BTW I watched CR7 Documentary a few weeks back. It was pretty interesting. In every aspect you can imagine Ronaldo is an individual athlete in team sports. That doc really underlines it. 
    Anyway. I am expecting us to play well tonight. I was impressed how we played against Tottenham in the first half. We looked like there never was a summer there.

    I honestly don't know how that one is even a debate.
    I respect CR7's dedication and sacrafises he made to get to the top but Messi is obscene, totally different animal.

    I love Mason but the man needs some tips with his hair. He has now gone to that British lad type hair and beard. Lose the beard and fix the hair. Sorry Mase. 😂

    Cup final! Woohoo! We earned this. Let's win tonight.
    I remember the first one against Real and that win really felt good. In those times it was a rarity to see Chelsea play on TV. 
    Just look at Zola's perfect little 'cut back' pass to Poyet who smashes it to bottom corner. If that pass wasn't as silky we'd never score. Those little things made him truly special. This is why I love Messi more than Ronaldo. Intelligence and skill before raw power. Although I don't mind that either.

    Why can't we criticise him? We are smashing our transfer record on a player we know all about. He is playing in a league that is one or two levels beneath our league. He hasn't changed as a player. He might be slimmer which is very good, he might score more goals, he is much more experienced but in a sub-par league. It is much easier for Havertz at 21 to adjust to the physicality and pace for the league than 28 year old Lukaku. 
    Some here just don't want us fans to look like prats who just want what we want and are not satisfied with arguably one of the best strikers in the world. Well as a club we are at that level. Almost every player is in our reach. That is something we have achieved with Roman. Real Madrid fans would argue about players as they are used to getting big names. Hazard is probably a massive talking point amongst them. 
    When it comes to praising Lukaku I would think his experience in Prem and in football is a great thing, he has shown he is scoring a lot for Belgium in a similar system, he has now won something which is also a great experience. I would love nothing more than him being a big hit. I like Lukaku. I have followed him on social media since we sold him. Lukaku is rated one of the best strikers in the world. 
    Still my head is only turned by hlm delivering. Not a second before. Not that is any concern of yours.

    Soccer fans are as critical as spectators at anything. Its always a lot easier in the spectator box. I used to sit right behind the ex coach of Sydney FC and I gave him lots of good advice and the  team did really well but he never acknowledged the advice and he got all the credit. I don't mind that's the way it is as a fan, you can say what you want and no-one gives a toss.

    I think there are question marks around Lukaku particularly about whether he can do as well in the Premier League at 28 as he did in Italy at 26. You can question whether he will be happy just being part of a big team rather than the biggest part of a smaller team. He will probably have to rotate at Chelsea whereas he hardly missed a game in Italy.
    You can point out how average he was at ManU and ask why that was and why it will be different at Chelsea. The hopeful answer is he wasn't that fit at ManU, probably had his head turned by the money or something. What we are getting is the finished article.

    You can question if he is fast enough, or whether he does enough in defence, like pressing, or whether when playing back to goal if his touch is good enough (can't be much worse than tammy's though)
    You can question what it means for our system and for the other players, someone's nose will surely be out of joint.

    You can ask all those questions and probably lots more. 

    I'm not completely sold, but I've come to the conclusion its not a bad bet. In the end it will make Chelsea even more interesting to watch this season. Its a bloody great time to be a chelsea supporter. I way prefer our players, manager and system to the other leading contenders. If Lukaku does even moderately well and we avoid major injuries then I think we will give the Premier League a good shove. I can't think any team will want to play us.

    Contrary to Lukaku, Kounde deal is very interesting to me. Although it is weird Tomori or Guéhi had no chance and left I think Kounde is regarded as one of the most promising defenders in Europe. At 22 he is at the perfect age joining our squad. 
    As soon as we ship out Zouma/Emerson we will strike a deal with Sevilla.
