  1. Feeling that strange combination of gutted and pleased at the same time. Excellent performance from us, should have won it in regular time. Also we need to spend a new World Record amount on a striker next summer.
  2. Whatever the outcome we've been terrific tonight. Feeling a bit calmer about the season ahead now.
  3. Got no problem with the starting 11, finals are always heavy on tactics. Frank has obviously chosen these players to keep us in the game as long as possible. Substitutions will be key and hopefully we can nick it. Come on you Blues!
  4. According to SportsMail FIFA only recently 'updated' their rules which lead to City's more favourable outcome. An option not made available to Chelsea; https://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/football/article-7353203/Manchester-City-avoid-FIFA-transfer-ban-breaching-rules.html But last month FIFA introduced a new regulation that states that sanctions can be reduced if a club accepts responsibility for breaking the rules and that was not an option open to Chelsea or other clubs, particularly in Spain, that have been hit with transfer bans in recent seasons. Indeed Sportsmail understands that, while the case dates back to 2014, it was only last week that City's lawyers made their final submission, with a decision arriving on Tuesday afternoon. Fifa said City had breached article 19 of its regulations, which states that 'international transfers of players are only permitted if the player is over the age of 18'. 'The Fifa disciplinary committee has sanctioned English club Manchester City FC for breaches relating to the international transfer and registration of players under the age of 18,' said football's world governing body in a statement.
  5. Yeah after hearing it was Frank's decision to make him sit out training I'm a little less annoyed with Luiz. Still think he should have stayed and fought. It's pretty clear from the interview that FL has made it clear to ALL the players that they are not automatic First Team starters. The rest stayed - one left.
  6. According to Frank it was his decision for Luiz to sit out training this week. He uses the words 'honest discussions' a few times to describe what took place, but it's pretty clear that once Luiz was told there would be competition for his spot and he was no longer guaranteed a starting place in the team he chose to leave rather that stay and fight. https://www.chelseafc.com/en/chelsea-tv/press-conference
  7. I hope Kante is fit to give an untried centre-back pairing some cover and breathing space. I'm guessing Christensen and Kurt but reckon Frank will provide as much defensive midfield cover to begin with and a fairly narrow, compact midfield especially as we're away from home. Distribution of the ball from the back is also an issue now so a rejuvenated Jorginho is more of a Key Player than ever. Starting 11 prediction; Kepa Azpi Kurt Christensen Emerson Kante Kovacic Jorginho Pulisic Barkley Giroud
  8. Got to say Luiz was one of the players I was hoping to see shipped out this summer (before the Transfer Ban was announced) - his inconsistency and lack of motivation in some games last season started to really grate. Then he had a sh*t pre-season and seemed oblivious to the fact he was supposed to be impressing a new Boss and fighting for his spot. The manner of his leaving has revealed a lot about his character, he knows the Premiership and knows us Fans won't like him going to such close rivals but he's prepared to wreck his reputation by leaving two days before the Season starts.
  9. Who knows? Might not be true at all and he missed training because of injury. But he has been poor pre-season; maybe Frank has had a word with him that his place is up for grabs and he's had a hissy fit? A few commentators are picking up on it now so the truth might become clearer soon.

  11. Biggest disappointment tonight has to be Tammy - just not in it at all.
