I'm surprised it was overturned. As much as Grealish played up to it itbwas still a deliberate action. I never expected it to be over turned. 

As for slating Grealish for his reaction. There isn't a club in the world who doesn't have players who don't do it.  If Mount does it on Saturday and gets De Bruyne sent off I'll wager we would find it in our hearts to forgive him!

Point well made. Dave himself is one for this and Jorginho's numerous screaming collapses to the floor is embarrassing.

The proper rugby blokes must look at these football p***ies and pi$$ themselves laughing. What a load of over hyped, overpaid, self absorbed, cheating pansies this football lot are.

Yes, Dave was stupid but greilish should have been in the book for 2 fouls previous to this. Referee played on with both tackles and didn’t pull him back. If he had have been booked he wouldn’t have made the tackle so Dave wouldn’t have been in that position. The other thing is that greilish positioned himself so Dave couldn’t get up and take the free kick, he was just pushing him off. It was as a result of bad refereeing

I can forgive it if it's happening now and again, but Grealish is doing it in every game. Also, our players aren't constantly looking for reasons to go to the floor screaming, they actually want to play football, Grealish is looking for it every game. He's more interested in winning fouls from diving than playing football.

How long has Dave officially been our captain? Have we won anything since he became captain? I forget what season JT left.

2 years now. We bottled the two FA cup finals but they were hardly his fault. JT left after Conte's first year and then Cahill was captain for 2 years I think

Ah of course. Cheers.

Yeah not blaming him at all. Amazing servant. Just thought if we keep losing finals with him as skipper that is what his time as skipper will be remembered for.

I love Dave. Such a dependable, intelligent player both in defence and attack. Rarely makes a mistake, almost always makes the right decision, and on occasion pops up with a key goal or reminds us he has some sublime ball skills too (THAT moment in the second leg vs Real). The Grealish incident made me love Dave even more.
 

I think he’s been a great captain. Us not winning stuff comes down to us not being as good as during the glory days. Simple as that. I’m not sure having a more charismatic (or whatever some people think it is that Dave lacks) captain would have changed much.

Absolutely over the moon for the geezer! He had massive boots to fill when Terry departed, he may not he as vocal as he was but I don’t doubt for a second he cares as much about the club at JT.

 

He is firmly up there with Frank, JT, Drogs for what he’s done for us. He’s been such an incredible servant and player, cemented himself as even more of a legend after tonight. He’s taken over the mantle of Mr Chelsea fantastically, he really epitomises everything good about our club. 
 

Well deserved el Capitano 💙

If he wasn't a legend already, then he certainly is now. Out of all of the players I wanted to see life the trophy, he was the one I wanted to see lift it the most. He has always given his all in every game he has played for us. I have never watched him and thought at the end of the game that he didn't try as hard as he could for us. Love the guy, he's given his absolute maximum for us every season he has been here.

Put his body on the line, never doubted he's going to quit after that knee injury, and the man knows how to party! We are fortunate to have some great defenders this century, but he has to be very close to the top of that list.

People questioning his leadership skills, myself included at times, but he really does lead by example. A model professional, who has now won the lot, whilst playing all across the defence. He will likely end up at at least number 7 for all time appearances. For me, along with Kante, last night propelled him to legendary status.
