  1. I hope he is fine and fit for Saturday as nobody likes players to be injured. However, I don't want him to start against City; the guy is unfortunately a turnstile on defence.
  2. Agree with Davey Babey. Cahill is really average, a great pro but average. It's a shame that David Luiz never got his act together, because on paper he was the perfect partner for Terry. With Terry and Cahill at the back and Ivanovic at right (which I think is a horrible tactical decision) we are very vulnerable to teams who run at and counter us like Tottenham did today. If you're going to take the game to the opposition like we do in 80% of our games, you need one pretty quick centre back. Well so I see it. I feel we get away with a tactical deficiencies because of talent. But we'll neve
  3. Yeah Cech seems like we're on the same page on this one. If he were injured for a long period of time, we'd struggle big time. I don't think Cahill has it in him to organise a back 4 over a number of games.
  4. Not worth debating this on here fella. JT is innocent on both the Fredinand and Bridge sagas here and they are all part of the general anti JT/anti Chelsea conspiracy in the media. That's pretty much the consensus on here.I think some people don't get that you can believe that JT used racist language and had an affair, though still love Chelsea and JT. In fact, he is my favourite ever Chelsea player. Being a Chelsea fan, I know all the good JT has done on and off the pitch and he always comes across as somebody who would give you the time of day if you were to meet him. When your family membe
  5. It's nowhere near the stage of boycott. The World Cup will be held in a variety of locations, it's only right in my opinion. Us in Western Europe and the Americas don't hold a special privilege to the game. That for me is the starting point and any boycott would look like we are against the notion on the World Cup being in new locations. I'm not best pleased that the potential of changing the date was never declared and more importantly that people are dying building the infrastructure for the World Cup. These for me are the main issues. Would Qatar host a good World Cup? Probably. There wa
  6. What Gary Neville said on MNF a couple of weeks ago pretty much hit the nail on the head (as usual). Essential points: -It is right that World Cup goes to different regions of the world. -The Middle East is one of those regions, so they should have a World Cup. -Climate means it is impossible to have a World Cup in the summer in the Middle East so a Middle Eastern World Cup aswell as potential world cups 40 degree North of the equator will have to be in winter. -Football leagues who play between Sept-May (only half of the football world) will have to accommodate and rearrange their schedu
  7. Avram Grant is set to be named Ghana manager so long as they accept he won't be granted access to some Middle eastern countries due to his Isreali nationality. Strange choice as Grant won't suit their style. Though he would bring a lot of professionalism and off the pitch organisation to the team. Something that can make a massive difference to talented African teams (well all teams actually, but it's a game changer for African teams, case point Nigeria).
  8. Ok main points: Jose didn't give us a bollocking- he told us to stay calm as we've never all played as a team, some played on Monday, others hadn't played much. Gave respect to Shrewsbury in a non patronising way, just seemed very genuine. He said he didn't need an armband to remind him that one of his main duties was to be a leader. When asked if it is hard to still play at his age, he said not with these amazing fans always supporting me. Then gave a nice clap to the Shrewsbury fans. What makes me so proud when I see Drogba is that we watched him grow up as a man. Terry, Lampard &
  9. His post match interview was class. Didier just seems like a genuinely nice guy. Definitely will part of our furniture for years and years to come.
  10. See I found the main game quite poor. For me it went backwards from the demo. They seem to always turn their back on potential exciting gameplay features in the full code. Got to say PES demo is ahead of the FIFA full game for me. First time I would say PES has been better since PES 6. It feels like a football simulator whilst FIFA is a football video game.
  11. Xbox one. Yes it is quite easy to score to be honest. I am still impressed, it plays more like football than the other game but is just not as slick. This is what I expected from PES 2014. Though I am convinced this is a good alternative product from FIFA. They also need to sort out slide tackling
  12. Just played a bit of the PES demo and I am very convinced. I'll probably get both this year especially due the discrepancy in release dates. Anyone find the players outline a bit blurry in some scenes?
  13. I thought it wasn't out yet?Edit: I have seen RFC_CFC's post. I will try that
  14. Yeah but PES bring out so many unfinished products over the years so it's best to wait. I am your typical PES on PS2 and FIFA on 360/PS4. PES 2014 had potential but was just riddled with game breakers that it was unplayable. Now it's Next Gen, I'll be open minded as FIFA is stalling. The way I see it is like this: I'll get FIFA, play a lot of ultimate team before getting bored of its repetitiveness. Then come November I'll get PES and hopefully won't be disappointed. My main concern is now till November is a long time for Konami to get things wrong.
