    That Sterling Incident

    True. You will see the exact same scenes of angry gestures, words etc at every football match in the League. But if these guys are getting SO angry they are losing self-control to the point they scream the foulest (not to mention illegal) abuse they can imagine they really need to re-evaluate their lives.

    Antonio Conte - Now Officially Manager

    https://www.thesun.co.uk/sport/7670111/chelsea-feud-antonio-conte-8-7m-damages-11-3m-pay-off/ Chelsea feud with Antonio Conte deepens with ex-boss demanding £8.7m damages IN ADDITION to £11.3m pay-off Conte was axed by the Blues 55 days after the end of last season - with a big fall-out following the Italian's departure By Sean Gallagher 6th November 2018, 1:30 pm Updated: 6th November 2018, 1:31 pm ANTONIO CONTE is suing Chelsea for £8.7m - on top of the £11m he still wants for the last year of his contract, according to reports. The Italian, who won the Premier League and FA Cup during a two-year spell in charge at Stamford Bridge, was axed just 55 days after the end of last season. A bitter fall-out has ensued since with that showing no signs of coming to a halt anytime soon, report Gazetta dello Sport. The Italian publication claim that Conte is locked in a legal battle with the Blues, not only over the £11.3m he's owed for the final year of his contract - but also as much as £8.7m in damages. Conte was rather bizarrely in charge for the first day of pre-season training, before Roman Abramovich finally pulled the trigger and landed Maurizio Sarri from Napoli. Conte, 49, claims the circumstances regarding his dismissal have affected his chances of landing a big job since. Chelsea are working hard to reach a settlement, but the newspaper further claim that Conte has missed two meetings with the club’s lawyers - and wants to drag the matter out as much as possible. The Blues' counter argument in the saga is that Conte cost them money when he sent Diego Costa a text message saying he should find a new club. This resulted in a major bust-up between the duo, with the now Atletico Madrid forward blaming him for his messy exit from Stamford Bridge. Chelsea also claim that Conte was regularly late for his media duties and was absent from sponsorship commitments on occasions. But quite incredibly they have also lodged a complaint that he parked his car in spaces not assigned to him at the club's Cobham training base. Conte was in line to replace Julen Lopetegui at Real Madrid, but that was reportedly blocked over his request to bring in a large backroom team. Therefore, the Italian is prepared to play the long game and fight the case until the end as a matter of honour.
  3. Poor performance from the team; disjointed, lacklustre and unimaginative. What a contrast to last weekend.
  4. Barkley outstanding. Gave us the stability and creativity that we might have missed without Hazard and Pedro. I was one of the doubters when he signed but if he keeps this up he deserves to be a guaranteed first eleven starter.
  5. Fantastic result considering we lost Hazard and Pedro. Barkley stepped up with a MOTM performance, really impressive. Can't fault any of them and Arsenal drew. Happy days!
  6. Barkley! Made one, scored one. MOTM
  7. Looked like a dive there was absolutely no need to go down like that.
  8. One of Berkeley's best games so far this season. Always available for the ball, creating chances and breaking up attacks. Tidy.
  9. Morata should have had a Hat-Trick.
  10. Let's see how Berkeley and RLC work together in midfield...

    Thibaut Courtois

    I lolled... https://weaintgotnohistory.sbnation.com/2018/10/26/18021994/desperate-courtois-left-pale-at-the-suggestion-of-conte-coming-to-real-madrid-report Desperate Courtois left pale at the suggestion of Conte coming to Real Madrid — report Courtois would not be happy if Conte (or Mourinho) followed him to Real Madrid “I cannot believe it!” They heard him say. ”Here I am the only one who has worked with Conte and with Mourinho. I left London to not have to go through something like that again and now it turns out that Conte comes, and if not, Mourinho.”
  13. Dominating this match but just cannot score the goals that reflect our possession and play. Ten+ corners and barely a goal scoring chance created from any of them - something really needs to be looked at on the training ground.
  14. Given the start we've made and the promising form Sarri has instilled in the team I reckon 4th is a realistic target. The only thing that will trip us up is lack of goals from our strikers.
