Changing ends


geezer

Recommended Posts

It's been noticeable we seem to have lost the toss and the away team have opted to change ends at the Bridge this season a number of times whereas in previous seasons we hardly ever if at all changed ends. Something tells me this has occurred in every game where we've dropped points at home this season. Can anyone else confirm this observation?

Can't say I have paid attention to such a detail. Maybe it's time to write the stat man at the official Chelsea site, or whatever it is that they call that fella who answers questions about chelsea stats.

Rick Glanvill he is ... but I doubt he's such stats ... and he mostly comes to action before a big game (probably Spurs, so :lol: )

It's not Rick Glanvill, it's Paul Dutton(Chelsea's club statistician). The column is called "ASK STATMAN".

And what's Rick doing? History? :lol: Thought history and statics equals each other

[edit] Sorry for the error - after I've persuaded the search engine of the official site to work properly (be kind to everything google or it squeezes gently) I've read it myself

Before Maksimov slates me again :D

Who's shown the club at me? :D

Is that what they call it in Germany? We have different words over here :lol:

Back to the topic. Chippy's right it did happen in the Liverpool game. It definitiely happened against Newcastle. I'm pretty sure it happened against Spurs and I also think it happened against the Mancs.

For crissakes JT win the toss!! Or is it the other captains are just bigger tossers?

So that's exactly what I wanted to say. What other expressions would you suggest?

Okay there's no easy way of saying this so I hope you don't get embarrassed easily. The English have numerous words to describe a certain part of their anatomy. So when you said 'who is showing me their club' I was being rude. And when you came back and said it also describes a common blunt weapon you probably came up with one of the funniest lines possible without even realising you had said it. Please don't be offended, it's all harmless fun and you're a great addition to this site.

Oh sorry geezer I wasn't thinking about this for one second! In that other thread Maksimov and I had a talk whether to cower or not (not to crouch sorry I had this word!) ... and in German we often use the "club" to describe someone to get beaten in the near future. So there was even more misunderstanding when you asked me why I used this expression and as I've learnt the word "club" when playing the game Diablo 2 I described it being a blunt weapon. I had no idea. Hope I didn't bother you too much :lol:

No problem and no bother Kerry. You may get used to my 'wacky' sense of humour in time (but then again you probably won't because it can be extreme at times - I just can't help myself).

Let me just go and hide behind the settee and lie down now............

I knew geezer wouldn't pass up an opportunity to crack a joke like that. That's what I meant by saying that I'll leave it to geezer. :lol:

I should have known but at least he isn't angry with me due to my reluctant understanding ...

Angry? You're the one with a reason to be upset. I mean, we were the ones having fun at your expense afterall. :D

I'm not upset. If I'm funny enough to make you laugh I'm happy to know it :lol:

@geezer: you couldn't have said it better ;)
