I wouldn't be surprised if Hazard left at the end of the season. For nearly two years he's waited around for world class players to join him so we can move to the next level and yet he's surrounded by average players and we're so dependent on him and Morata.

Last summer we should of been aiming for the likes of Van Dijk, Alex Sandro, Aurier, Tolisso and Sanchez and what are we left with absolute rubbish. Sorry to Cesc fanboys but he's too slow Tolisso would have been perfect to replace him a proper box to box centre mid. Cahill and Willian are finished.

Never even heard of Zappacosta before we signed him and for goodness sake how long have we been waiting for that world class RW since Robben. Bakayoko has had a couple of games where he's been so powerful and the rest he's just been rubbish he's even had a two week lay off cause France never selected them. We should be joining City now and becoming a dominate force in every competition but yet we're back to the drawing board agai. The board is the main reason for this if this was ten years ago Roman would have been lethal and got rid of Marina and Emenal because they've failed for years.

I really don't want to start blaming Conte as he's everything we've ever wanted in a manager. He's passionate, successful and he's a lovely bloke but a lot of these decisions are going to cost him his job. Willian and Cahill constantly getting gametime over the likes of Rudiger/ Christensen and Musonda/ Pedro. Pedro is a very good player we saw that last year he did great tonight when he came on because he pushed Roma back. Pedro, Morata and Hazard is a good front three they haven't started together yet but they need to.


1.) 19 Oct 2017 08:48:45
Is this the same Hazard who has picked up the prem trophy two out of the last three years?
In the main are these the same average players who romped to the prem title last year?
We can only buy players that club want to sell. Juve didn’t want to sell Sandro, Southampton didn’t want to sell VD and in my opinion Aurier is an accident waiting to happen and a head case!
I will never criticise the board as the board in effect is RA and us supporters owe such huge gratitude.
At the moment we have to many players who are not playing well but we are 5th in the league and we will qualify for the next phase of the Champs League. It’s up to Conte to turn some players form around and it’s up to the fans to support the manager!

2.) 19 Oct 2017 13:23:12
Couldn't agree more Tom one win or a Qarabag loose and were guaranteed European football. The team just need to be supported not berated!

3.) 19 Oct 2017 22:06:29
Agree with what u say, but we have a rediculously undersized squad. Lucky with injuries last year but the luck has turned this year. We seemed to have accepted that we cannot challenge for the champions league trophy, which I suppose is understandable based on the amount spent by other clubs.

4.) 19 Oct 2017 22:42:14
Like most fans Sid, I get frustrated when we are playing badly.

On some occasions I’m critical of a players performance and on Wednesday I posted that, in my opinion only three of our players had good games but I always try to turn the negative into a positive. If players are dropped for playing poorly that SHOULD give an opportunity to someone else.

I remain confident of a good season. I believe in our manager and the players and above everything else I believe in Roman and the board to give us continued success.

5.) 20 Oct 2017 12:02:07
I think Pragmatism helps. I believe strongly in 'proactiveness'. Right now all we can do is support the team, pray and hope for the best BUT the trophies will always go to the in-form team with better resources and better preparation. DEPTH makes me believe in a team.

6.) 21 Oct 2017 17:15:01
I doubt if Hazard will be allowed to leave next summer - his contract expires 2020 - it will be the summer after. Conte will leave next summer.



19 Jul 2017 19:43:21
Over the moon with Morata not necessarily my Choice but he's Conte'a choice and that's what's the most important for our club. We need to keep backing him and get Alex Sandro now as he's a world class left wing back. Then get Toljan for the right hand side as he's going to be quality in a couple of years.


1.) 19 Jul 2017 20:40:03
Isn't Toljan a right back?

2.) 19 Jul 2017 23:25:46
I think the perfect striker to play with the likes of hazard and Pedro.

3.) 19 Jul 2017 23:44:40
He's an attacking right back so he'd make a very good wing back. One of the best players at the Euro's it would be a shrewd move to get him now before his price goes up.



14 Jul 2017 17:55:28
Rumour that Bakayoko move has been blocked as Monaco did not send Chelsea additional paperwork and he's deleted all of his instagram story. Can see Conte walking if this carries on.


1.) 14 Jul 2017 18:10:37
if that's the case which it won't be . that's not chelseas fault so doubt Conte will walk. Bakayoko will sign don't worry.

2.) 14 Jul 2017 18:18:58
Ridiculous. Stop the click bait. It's not helping.

3.) 14 Jul 2017 19:08:35
It's mixed reports about Bakayoko.
Some media informing deal will be announced soon and Bakayoko will be CFC player. While some media reporting deal is off and Bakayoko will head back to Monaco.

Don't know what is going on.

4.) 14 Jul 2017 21:22:38
we will sign him.

How can people say Loftus-Cheek doesn't work hard enough when Cesc and Bakayoko seem to play together they've been shocking. I'm telling you now next year get RLC and Kante together in midfield then we'll dominate.


1.) 18 Oct 2017 22:12:06
Bakayoko maybe was playing (even though really poorly) but truly have anyone noticed Fabregas in this match? I am usually a big admirer of his but I can't wait for danny to heal ASAP. I would rather play luiz in midfield than fabregaz atm.

2.) 18 Oct 2017 23:20:01
I’m usually one of the more optimistic posters but having just got home and having had time to think about the team and individuals performances, I am very worried.
I’ve been critical of my fellow posters for being overly pessimistic and critical of certain players and management. To those posters, I apologise.
Tonight with the exception of three players, it just wasn’t god enough.
People can talk about players out on loan who should be in our squad they can even say we should have signed different players and yes, we have got injuries with another two added to that list tonight but it comes as a shock when players like Dave are so out of form.
God knows what sort of midfield we will put out against Watford. This is when Conte earns the big bucks!

3.) 18 Oct 2017 23:28:50
I don't know what people expect from Fabregas when we're playing counter attacking football having 40% possession. Our system doesn't suit him at all, he needs the ball up the pitch and not be made to run around chasing shadows. I said a while ago if we're playing this system we need another world class winger or CAM who can create/ score and work hard.



10 Oct 2017 16:08:22
Do you know what I completely agree with Musonda on his recent comments. We let De Bruyne slip through our fingers because he knew himself how good he was and he wasn't given the chance. Musonda is extremely talented especially if given the chance to play with better players. Willian isn't good enough he has no end product he should be dropped even if Musonda is on the bench he should be brought on for twenty minutes.

Christensen has had a run of games and now people are convinced he should start over Luiz he's that good. It's unbelievable how much a bit of gametime will show how good a player is.


1.) 10 Oct 2017 16:25:22
Chelsea are clearly a club that 'do it their way' and frustrating as it is, it is not something just introduced. Under RA we have operated differently to most of the big clubs with our youth and transfer policy and any current youngster at the club would have grown up knowing that. As much as I sympathise with Musonda I do not think that was a smart move especially as he is involved rather than out on loan again and the club and one Antonio Conte are not going to be impressed. Now, after creating a good early impression, do not be surprised that he is off on loan again at Christmas.

2.) 10 Oct 2017 22:14:31
I don't completely blame Musonda. I think Chelsea should have a good plan for this kind of talent. He really should be playing a bit more.
Like u said, the kid believes so much in his ability.

3.) 11 Oct 2017 06:22:32
Trouble is what is Chelsea's youth policy? .
If it is to bring them in then develope them and feed them into the first team then we are not doing a fantastic job. However how many youth players have we had that you could say hand on heart were good enough to go into the first team in the last ten years. Ones that have left and been a success. That's right at best one, but none spring to mind. It's in the last year or so that a couple I was sorry to see go, Chalobah and Ake.
As I said what is there policy, if it is to take young players, develope them, loan them out and then when realising they won't cut it sell them for a good price. Then perhaps they are doing a good job.
This is just my opinion, but puts a different slant on Chelsea's youth policy.

4.) 11 Oct 2017 09:51:45
Sometimes you don't fight, you don't elicit a response and you don't get what you deserve. Musonda has just fought, I hope the best for him (though his medium of communicating his worries might not be the best way) . I wish in the end he gets more playing time.

I guess Christensen fought when his agent (his father) said earlier that, 'He won't be used as barter and he won't sit on the bench'; today he's playing and we are seeing how good he is. We.

5.) 12 Oct 2017 00:13:37
KDB expected a starting berth when we had the likes of Mata, Hazard and Oscar ahead of him. Possibly even Willian, although I can’t remember if Willian was bought before or after he was sold. Regardless, he wasn’t prepared to put the hard graft into earning a spot in the team.

6.) 12 Oct 2017 16:56:20
KDB left after Mourinho signed Willian. There's no one but Mourinho to blame for losing KDB.

{Ed002's Note - Rubbish.}



06 Oct 2017 00:24:36
Call me biast but Loftus-Cheek should be starting already in that England midfield.


1.) 06 Oct 2017 08:16:10
Two ways of looking at that. He is lazy and is a standout in a dreadful Crystal Palace team so what credentials does he have for an England shirt over a dozen others OR England are so bad he would fit in nicely!

2.) 06 Oct 2017 10:12:54
Palace are better to watch than England.

3.) 07 Oct 2017 10:45:32
Why thumb down TomB? he spoke the truth.



01 Oct 2017 19:25:58
Is the 3-4-3/ 3-5-2 starting to get figured out now or is it time we could go back to 4-3-3? We need another Conte formation change masterclass and the another long winning run.


1.) 02 Oct 2017 12:40:01
With Morata now looking as if he will be out for over 4 weeks, we will see how Conte sets up the team. It will be very interesting!

2.) 02 Oct 2017 15:19:27
TomB good day, is it actually confirmed that Morata will be out for that long?

I thought we have the Batman- Batshuayi?

3.) 02 Oct 2017 16:07:05
Yes it's possible that Chelsea starts playing 4 in the back if Conte gets sacked but it doesn't look like it although some morons on this page would like that.
Conte is not leaving Chelsea at least until the end of a season.
We don't have a squad to play 3142 week after week. Going back to 3421 with Kante and one more CM will be better solution.
IF we played with 4 in the back we would lose with at least 3 goals difference against Man. City.3 CBs have closed holes in our defense so going back to 2 CBs would be big mistake and wouldn't fix anything.

4.) 02 Oct 2017 16:29:23
antibot, l must have missed ANY supporter asking or suggesting Conte's sacking but like all clubs we have numpties!
Obinna, I'm told the Morata injury has been confirmed and yes, we do have the Batman but will Conte play him?

5.) 02 Oct 2017 17:08:42
Hey Tom, apparently Alvaro should be just about dit for palace at a stretch he’d be back after the palace game, according to reports. Here’s hoping he’s back cause we really need him up too as we saw against city.

6.) 02 Oct 2017 17:23:59
Let's hope so ELI.

9.) 02 Oct 2017 22:36:36
I hate this situation that we are in right now, a bit of pessimism pays at times when applied in the right moment cos it will make u conscious of where the edge is.



30 Sep 2017 20:53:59
Conte needs to take the blame tonight he's let us down against City as well as Arsenal now and we had a great result midweek too.

I'll say this now and I don't care what anyone says. Willian is an average footballer and Musonda Jr is already better than him. Azpilicueta is not a wing back, Antonio you do not move you're best players from there best positions just to accommodate Cahill in the back three he should of kept Azpi there and played Zappacosta if he wanted to give Moses a rest. On a plus point Christensen is fantastic isn't he? Azpi, Luiz and Christensen should be our regular back three from now on. Our midfield three looked tired to be fair and Cesc and Bakayoko will now get a two week rest as they haven't been selected. But I've said it time and time again Cesc is way too slow now when he plays and when he's not having a good game with the ball it's like having ten men. If there is a quality ball playing midfielder available who is younger and more energetic we should target him because Cesc is too slow nowadays. I know it's harsh but I'm not keen on Batshuayi and I don't think Conte is either he just doesn't work hard and press enough for me. My problem is if Conte isn't keen wbu didn't we just sell him. Vardy would be a perfect back up for us. Fast, hungry, goalscorer and an absolute nuisance for defenders. To have him as rotation would be golden. Pedro would make a great squad player for rotation off the bench as he's got a good end product but Willian on the other hand just isn't good enough anymore.


1.) 01 Oct 2017 01:10:37
Good post mate. Agree with most of your points.

I am not sure what Conte was thinking today, maybe it was the lack of preparation due to the limited time afforded from the AM game. However, if there is one manager out there that could sort this out then it is Conte.

I am still confident that we will be there fighting for the title until the end. I take positives from last year when we had the exact same points as now.

2.) 01 Oct 2017 08:37:08
Loco: Good post and agree with all. Fabregas will always find Morata but as we have said before he needs 'time and space' and he was going to get little against City so that was a mistake playing him. We agree on Bats but many do not and at 24 he is developing too slowly. Clearly Willian and Pedro are impact players although the former seems to be deteriorating by the week. Bayakoko looks like a man that needs a year in the premiership to adjust; enthusiasm and energy in abundance but runs around sometimes like a headless chicken. The issue is without doubt a squad that is not strong enough and I would like to see a Lampard or dare I say it a De Bruyne attacking midfielder to compliment Morata and Hazard.

Football is all about opinions and sorry but he's never impressed me what is his actual best position. He doesn't have one standout attribute? He's just decent at everything I wmdefknately wouldn't call him complete. I'm not saying he's a bad player but he's nowhere near Kante or even Bakayoko for me.

It’s not really the RW position is it it’s like playing with two no.10’s in the centre to let them do the damage. Any of Dybala, Sanchez or Griezmann would be perfect for it but my Choice would be Sanchez as he’s a proper Conte player we would be unreal with Sanchez and Hazard behind Morata.

We need a striker who presses from the front. Icardi doesn’t do that enough from what I’ve seen. Belotti or Vardy would be great.

For me the problems are obvious.

Christensen should always be a starter in the back three Kante playing covers the cracks in our defence. Rudiger and Azpilicueta should partner him. Luiz should now be used as a backup centre half in the back three or in midfield. We still need another class centre back as we should just offload Cahill as he’s declining rapidly. Van Dijk would be the obvious option.

Fabregas should never play in a midfield two away from home or at home against a top side he’s too slow and no matter how good he is on the ball it’s like defending with ten men. Apparently Loftus-Cheek wouldn’t be good enough as he has no work rate for a midfield two, well in telling you now I’d feel a lot safer with him there than Cesc as he’s quicker and defensively very good. Bakayoko, Kante and Loftus-Cheek should be our main midfielders next season sorry Cesc fan boys but he doesn’t have the legs any more I think Italian football would be a better option for him.

Wing backs are the biggest problem in this system as both Moses and Alonso are decent and very good back up options but none of them are world class. And where is our back up to Alonso? Kenedy? Hardly the rotational player we need as he’s not good enough. We need to be targeting class players who would take us to the next level. A player like Florenzi from Roma would be perfect as RWB. And even if Alex Sandro is hard to sign why not try for Ghoulam from Napoli he’s a cracking player or even Danny Rose if available although I think Levy would rather kill himself than sell to us. Florenzi, Alex Sandro, Rose and Ghoulam should be the type of players we need to sign.

A world class RW has been a problem for years why not just spend 100 million plus on someone like Dybala who would be a mainstay for ten years instead of signing loads of average players for 30 million. We desperately need that player like Dybala or Griezmann to take the pressure off Hazard because apart from him and Morata we have no consistent goal threat. Pedro and Musonda would be solid squad players for rotation but neither should start. Personally I think I’d be starting Musonda now alongside Morata and Hazard as he might blossom and I’m sick to death of seeing Willian play poor and still get selected. Conte’s the man to lead us but if he carries on making the wrong team selections I. e Willian and Cahill when there’s better players on the bench it will be his downfall.

Lastly the striker position. I’m sorry but I hate seeing lazy strikers. Batshuayi although a good finisher offers nothing else. Tammy Abraham is already a better player than him. We need someone who can score and press the opposition defenders. We have no one that scares opposition off the bench. We need two class strikers for both competitions. I got slated for saying Vardy a few weeks ago but at least he would push defenders back and give the likes of Hazard and Pedro more space.
