    VAR in 2019/20

    I’m one of the few who detest VAR. Hazard goes done the wing, beats three players, great cross to Morata who’s sprinted forty yards, diving header, great goal and the crowd goes nuts! Hang on everybody, don’t cheer just yet, let’s just see if anyone was offside, interfering with play, did anyone say something they shouldn’t have etc. etc. Bang goes the excitement, the spontaneity. I read once that Abramovich loves football because it’s unpredictable, the ref may of had a row with his wife that morning. Please don’t ruin this beautiful game.

    Our New Stadium

    Staying where we are is paramount. It’s going to be worth every penny. Employing local people, creating jobs etc. The stadium’s iconic look is forever, not some cheap mistake like West Ham have bought into.

    Our New Stadium

    I’m with you on this. I’ve dreamt of this new stadium since he 70’s. We must keep up or get left behind. It’s more than a stadium, it’s a statement of intent to move forward. A modern, iconic London landmark. Can’t wait.

    Our New Stadium

    We’ve overcome some major hurdles already, the permissions, the planning. The New White Lane seems to be moving swiftly. I seem to remember a short documentary on the Emirates being built. Arsenal had quite a few logistical problems to overcome but got there nonetheless.

    Our New Stadium

    It’s difficult to predict what may happen in football terms, but I’m sure when the new stadium is up and running, we’ll attract even more top players to the capital. I’m so chuffed this is happening, it was really disappointing not seeing the 1970’s model not come to fruition. The design is incredible, it’s more than a football ground. An iconic statement we can all be proud of. I’ve waited this long, I can wait a few more years yet.

    Alvaro Morata

    He was told to do a job yesterday and did it well. I would have burst a lung if he'd scored from that header! Think he needs someone with him (Hazard) then see how it goes. Good luck Alvaro.

    Antonio Conte - Now Officially Manager

    The papers, commentators say we were outplayed yesterday. if you have a game plan that works, stifles the other team, defend well and score goals, surely we've Outplayed' them? Well played Antonio.
  14. There is no club like ours. Never boring and always something happening. I wouldn't want it any other way. We will be managed rightly or wrongly over the years and attract attention no matter.

    Watching Sir Bobby Charltons last game at Chelsea

    I was there that day. Twelve years old with a mate from school. No change of getting in The Shed that day, so North Stand it was. Dont remember it being a great game, it was more interesting watching the coming and goings around us.

    Your first Chelsea game?

    European Cup Winners Cup Semi-Final 1971 Home against Man. City Ill never forget the sights, sounds and smells of my first game. Shed End behind the goal with my dad. I think I spent half the time watching the bigger lads behind me (Middle of The Shed) having a great time singing, jumping up and down. It was where I wanted to be. The night games were so exciting for a ten year old. A hot dog and an Alan Hudson poster on the way out. Fantastic.

    Think I went to the Harry Medhurst/Dickie Spence testimonial game against West Ham. Must of been 1976. Bit of an obscure one.
