I simply can't believe Conte rested our best players this game, what was he resting them for, the cup final?, Newcastle? . This was a must win game and he starts with that line up, i couldn't care less if we played on Sunday, there was two league games left and we needed to win them both. More defensive mistakes costing us which has been the case all season, Christensen with some shocking marking and i don't know what Caballero was doing.

Season can't end soon enough, soo many players need to leave it's ridiculous. Credit to Huddersfield anyway, they deserved to stay up and although were wasting time on every opportunity, they deserved the draw. Everybody at the club is to blame for this mess, from the board and there pathetic signings, Conte and his ridiculous line ups and tactics and the players for underperforming and showing no desire this season.

Lastly i have no idea how Willian won our POTY, he had a short spell when he was performing but like always went back to being bang average. Kante is the only Chelsea player this season who showed consistency and effort every game he played. Hopefully we can keep hold of him as well, i reckon more teams will be after his services than Hazards.

LB90: Spot on. No need to say anymore other than Kante was head and shoulders above everyone across the season and deserved POTY not William who was sub more than a starter.

2.) 10 May 2018 08:28:23
Agree Kante was easily our POTY, but let's hear a shout for Rudiger who was mightily impressive in his first Prem season.

3.) 10 May 2018 08:39:16
Couldn't agree with the above more.

why on earth we changed the line up which provided a good performance against Liverpool.

anyone would think Conte is looking to be sacked so he can ride off into the sun set with his wheel barrow of cash.

The squad needs a complete over haul in the summer and I am ever more conscious that the world cup window is going to cost us improvements/ signings.

Promote the youth, I would rather sit there and watch a group of youngsters bursting their lungs than some over paid pre madonnas who can't be bothered.



28 Apr 2018 23:03:40
Far from impressed with the performance, we got the win which is the most important thing but it's been these games which has cost us massively this season. How many times have we gone ahead and failed to kill the game which has led to us losing points? . Spurs, United and West ham to name a few in our recent games. We sit back and allow the opposition to play, we got away with it last season as our defence was in form and had a striker who was clinical but it hasn't been the case this season. Although still in with a chance so you never know! . Mentioned this last week but I'll mention again, Emerson looks like a real quality full back. His runs, composure on the ball and crosses are great and i wouldn't be surprised if he starts for us next season.




14 Apr 2018 18:35:31
Shouldn't have ever been in a position to need to come back from 2-0 down, especially against Southampton! . But credit to the guys for the 2nd half performance, we've given up easily in games when we've been down this season, it was nice to see some fight from the lads. Personally I'd like to see Giroud start from now on until the end of the season. He offers more to this team with the way we play, he can hold up the ball better, just as good in the air as Morata and is a natural goalscorer.


1.) 15 Apr 2018 07:33:03
I’m hoping that it’s not only the fans that can see the amount of work the WHOLE club has to do if we are going to continue being a successful team.
Last years achievements were fantastic but from the first game of the season we have been bang average.
The players, the manager and the board need a long hard look at themselves to work out what’s required if we are to compete in domestic and European competitions next season and beyond.
The leadership, at all levels within our club deserve criticism and require a lot of work this summer.

2.) 16 Apr 2018 02:52:05
Agreed. The board have been a problem for a while now with their lack of desire to get quality players in, but this season the players just haven't shown any interest in trying to compete. Ever since January our players kind of lost interest and became lazy which has been costing us. Add that with the fact they know Conte is going and with how down he looks now it's no surprise the teams performances have been below average. When Conte goes it isn't going to get rid of the problem which soo many seem to think. There are players in this team who think they're bigger than the club and aren't interested in doing the dirty work. A lot needs to change. Conte will go and rightly so but the players have let him down massively this season as well as the board.

3.) 16 Apr 2018 09:20:13
The board will say look at the continued success we have given the club.
I obviously welcome the success but I’m fed up with the same problems seemingly occurring every few years.
We change a manager, change a large percentage of the back room staff, change the playing style and therefore potentially the players.
When will the club recognise that if the plan keeps going wrong there is something wrong with the plan!



08 Apr 2018 19:59:46
A broken record. Stupid defensive mistakes and can't take our chances, as soon as Hernandez came on at only 1-0 it was always destined to go south. Can't wait for this season to end. Everybody but Kante, Azpi, Rudiger and Willian should be ashamed of themselves this season, especially over the last month. Just hope we rebuild around Kante and Azpi. I couldn't care less about anybody else in this team. Summer can't come soon enough. soo much change needes at this club.


1.) 08 Apr 2018 20:41:02
Willian had 2 months in form, while season.

2.) 08 Apr 2018 20:45:56
Tactically Conte has proven to be weak. The same old tactics, like for like replacements.

Could not agree more, Kante, Azpi, Willian can have some credit. I think we will have players in the crap 11 than the best 11 come the end.

3.) 08 Apr 2018 23:26:38
I cannot understand this worshiping of Azpi; he is far too cautious (always a back-pass when we're crying out for the ball to go forward), and his crossing has deteriorated badly. Give me a decent right back and day of the week.

4.) 09 Apr 2018 05:15:51
Dempsey, he has a few weaknesses for sure. He isn't the best at defending long balls and gets out muscled easily at times but he's a versatile defender and is easily one of the best in the league. More importantly to me is he's the closest we have to a leader. He loves this club and you never see him not giving it his all. He's the only player i ever see who tries to communicate with the team. Why he isn't our first captain i don't know.

5.) 09 Apr 2018 11:16:02
Dempsey. 100% mate. This season has been his worst. Silly 5-10 yard passes going astray. Losing his man, being caught out of position at times. Lack of communication (can go for ALL the defence inc GK) . He started well with the Morata link up, but that’s all gone. A new RWB needed, Emerson needs to play more - why hasn’t he? Hazard needs to be dropped. Poor all over. Willian was crap y’day. We looked scared to have a shot outside the box. Trying to constantly walk the ball in. Moses - less said the better!



19 Mar 2018 12:23:34
Willian has just been superb for us lately. With our attackers underperforming he's been the one that's stepped up massively. We all know his inconsistency has been a problem for him at Chelsea for the last few years but when he's in form he's one of the best wingers around. Whether he should or shouldn't be a starting player for us next season is debatable. But we can't let him go especially to United. I know they're interested and he'll definitely flourish there just like Matic.

As for Hazard i don't know what's going on with him. Whether he's fatigued or his head is already in Madrid, he just hasn't been himself for a while now. Hopefully after the international break he comes back focused. The next game against Spurs is our biggest game of the season, we need to win this one to have a chance for top 4 and we need Hazard to be at his best to have a good chance at doing it. For now let's just hope no one gets any injuries during the international break and come back well rested. 👍


1.) 19 Mar 2018 15:06:25
CM Mid mate. all his best play and runs have come from the centre park with speed. get a new winger and play him in a midfield 3. Kante Willian someone new (all rounder)

2.) 19 Mar 2018 19:43:52
Wheelycfc: Totally agree. He would make a perfect partner for Kante with another energetic and pacy player alongside. If they don't want to spend the money I would put Luiz in midfield, far better suited than defence. Christensen is worrying me at the moment as he seems a little fragile under pressure. Hazard is leaving it late in life to be attractive to Spain so the end of this season will be make or break for him but we must sort our attack out.

Good game from the boys. Looked dodgy at the back when Southampton had that 15minute spell in the 2nd half but overall we controlled the game and thoroughly deserved the win. Hope we can end this season with a trophy for Conte. We all know he'll be off after this season so ending it with a win in the final, especially against United would be great. I'd personally like to see Giroud and Morata up front together with Hazard behind them in the final. United can look vulnerable in the air and having Morata and Giroud could really give them problems. Also Emerson looks to be a solid player, may not have an eye for goal like Alonso but he can get up and down the flanks a lot quicker and has a good cross on him.




04 Mar 2018 18:17:30
Set up like cowards and deservedly lost the game. Said i was confident ahead of this game as long as we set up correctly and didn't pay them too much respect, i guess that teaches me to have faith in this team. We set up not to get thrashed and had no intention to get anything from it.

Made changes way too late once again, Hazard ineffective due to playing out of position once again. As soon as they scored we should have changed it up at least, not wait till the 80th minute to do something! I'd rather have been thrashed and gone for it than that embarrassing performance. Credit to City though, deserved champions.


1.) 04 Mar 2018 18:54:36
Totally agree with LondonBlues90, we are all worrying about Hazard n Courtois signing new contracts, don't worry, on that performance they will b running in to the arms of Real Madrid. Who could blame them.

2.) 04 Mar 2018 18:59:21
Couldn't agree more why leave it so late to makes Subs very poor performance think the Aura of Negativity is spreading down from the manager!

3.) 04 Mar 2018 22:11:07
Conte has to go NOW.



01 Feb 2018 11:04:51
It's funny seeing people debate over who's fault our current downfall is down to, Conte or the board? . It's pretty simple, It's both. Conte worked wonders last year with what he had at his disposal, nobody expected us to win the league and if we'd finished in the top 4 everyone would've considered that as a successful season, yes?

The change in formation and tactics took everybody in the league by surprise and everyone didn't know how to play against us. Add that with our players being in form throughout the whole season, little injuries and no European football to worry about, everything went perfectly. Into the summer and we expected a busy transfer window, with Costa wanting to leave as well as Matic.

I don't know if Conte and the board had previous issues between them before the summer, but the Costa fiasco was one that really created bad blood between them. People can debate whether it was right or wrong (personally i don't think it was right but i understood why) but it clearly put the board in a difficult situation. Then the rumours started spreading with Conte wanting more power within the club and being told no.

Again i have no information as to whether this happened or not but similar issues occured at his time at Juve which lead to him resigning. Of course because of what happened there, stories started spreading about him being ready to resign and go back to Italy. That was put to bed and he signed a new contract. But it wasn't an extension, just a new contract to give him more money.

That for me was an indication that Conte wasn't going to be here for the long run, especially if things took a turn. Along came our transfers. With Costa not coming back into the team despite not being able to leave for Athletico until January, we needed a new striker. Everything was pointing towards Lukaku coming back to the bridge, one that drew different opinions among us supporters. For me he would've been a little risk transfer, BPL proven and young.

But it didn't happen and he went to United despite an apparent last ditch effort from Chelsea. Apparently this was a signing the board wanted rather than Conte. In the end we got Morata, one that Conte wanted. This was a transfer i was excited about but was a risky one. A player who's never been a starting striker and would be new to the BPL. I said he'd need time, and it shows, i still think he'll come good as he has everything in his game bar composure.

It may take a while but it'll be something we as fans will need to accept. As for the rest of our transfer business, Bakayoko, Drinkwater, Rudiger and Zappacosta were brought in. Each for the region of £25-£35m. These players enabled others like Chalobah, Ake, RLC ect to either leave on a permanent or a loan. We spent the entire summer replacing players and made no improvements to our starting 11.

People debated Bakayoko being an upgrade on Matic for a while but that's been put to bed. Nobody expected the poor start he's had but tbf to the guy he isn't the only one. So a summer of replacements but no improvements. Not to mention our bussiness was being done very late, one that was constantly brought up by Conte in every press conference, taking small digs at the board.

Once the season started we still didn't have Drinkwater or Zappacosta and Bakoyoko and Morata were injured. We got unlucky against Arsenal and against Burnley we completely capitulated after the sending off but nearly came back in the 2nd half. Once our team got together we started to win games and things looked good. When City came along and bossed us at the bridge it was clear to everyone our squad wasn't anywhere near good enough to compete anymore.

Teams learned how to play against us and players began to underperform. We began shipping in goals for fun and it lead to an outburst between Luiz and Conte after the Roma away game about our style of play. Now Conte is one who doesn't liked to be questioned by his players and his treatment towards him ever since has shown it.

Luiz isn't the best defender but he's a character, one who everyone in the team likes. So this treatment could clearly create a negative atmosphere among the squad, something which seems to have happened. Since then we've gone through games edging wins, dull draws and some very embarrassing losses. Teams now know how to play against us and we haven't had enough quality in the team to overcome it.

Conte has been a manager who has struggled to change styles and it's showing. We've kept playing the same formations (3-4-3 and 3-5-2) every game despite it not working. His decision making from starting line ups to substitutions have been questionable all season long and it's at a point now were people are becoming tired with it.

He's come out when being asked about this and has used lack of quality depth within the team and fixtures as his excuse, one that is understandable but frustrating, why frustrating? . Well everybody has called for youth to be given a chance, Musounda, RLC, Hudson-odoi, Kenedy. But because they don't suit his style and he finds it hard to trust youth, he doesn't use them. So because he doesn't use them and uses the same players over and over players become tired and fatigued. Players have been getting injured because of this and it's taken a big hit on our results.

That then puts pressure on our board to do business in January and we add depth. We bring in Barkley, Emerson and Giroud. All cheap but good squad players, BUT yet again, similar to the summer, no improvements. More players leave on loan due to not being in Conte's plans and have to be replaced. Other teams around us spent the summer AND now January to improve their teams.

We however have not. One could argue Christensen replacing Luiz is an improvement but it came because of the outburst. But surprise, Conte trusted a youth player and he delivered, so why not give others more chances instead of shipping them out and calling for reinforcements? Now here we are.

Conte and the board are putting up with one another until the summer at the very least unless results get even worse! . The atmosphere within the team is poor as players aren't performing, players are unhappy, and it seems as if the players already know Conte is off in the summer.

This would explain our little ambition in the window. Why spend big bucks on players our next manager may not want? Our squad is starting to come back now and Conte has his depth he's been shouting for. Once the team is back fully fit maybe we can get it together and find some form.

We have a good enough team to finish in the top 4 and maybe push for the FA cup. We have a lot of deadwood within our team and i feel we need to have a massive summer window to get rid off them and rebuild. This is why making the top 4 is even more important to be able to attract big enough players at the club.

To conclude my point, the board simply didn't do enough to get Conte's targets in the summer but wasn't helped with the amount of players that wanted out or wasn't wanted because of Conte. Because Conte didn't want to trust players like Ake, RLC, sterling and so on, it resulted in money being wasted on players like Drinkwater, Zappacosta, Emerson and so on.

This money could've easily been spent on players to improve this team but wasn't. Conte has been his own enemy in not having trust in youth players, being tactically inept to change styles when things aren't working and being too stubborn with his dealings on Costa and Luiz.

All that's left to say is that for now as fans we need to try and make it through this season getting behind the boys to get over this bump. The fan base is starting to become toxic and it simply won't help. Sorry for the long read but it was difficult to make my thoughts on this shorter. XD.


1.) 01 Feb 2018 12:21:54
Excellent comment and conveys your opinion well and as you know, ask ten people for an opinion and you would probably get ten different ones. I don't think toxic is the right word, frustration is better and I think there are two forms of frustration here. Firstly, we are all frustrated the way the team/ individual players are performing and there is no doubt you are correct, we are spending but just consolidating, not improving the squad and certainly the tension between Conte and the Board is impacting the players. I do think however that Conte has been found out to be tactically poor. The second frustration is 'here we are again' after a stellar year somehow we have managed to wreck any progress so that by 2018/ 2019 we will be building again. We need some continuity and that is the Board supporting a manager whoever it might be longer than twelve to twenty four months which means picking wisely, no more Grant or Scolaris of this world and of course that might prove difficult given the names we have been through since Mourinho's first stint; the players have to feel that if they join under a manager they admire they are not going to find themselves struggling under another within months. I would say that Luiz should be in the team in midfield displacing Baya-'waste of money'-koko and Morata, Giroud and Hazard upfront for the rest of the season if possible because outside the first four and our problems multiply.

2.) 01 Feb 2018 12:25:13
Good read mate.

Diego Costa

These 7 have played a lot in both our title winning campaigns. Do you think it was a mirracle that they won the league twice. I don't think so.

Both managers? Jose at the time said he won the league because the players were playing above their limits. Conte says last year was a mirracle given that the players played 120% and again more than their limits.

I thinks its unfair to to not give credit to the players. They won the league because they all are very good footballers and their past trophy houls would prove that (minus cahill) .

The team is good, maybe not as good as man city but surely this board/ conte fiasco has taken its toll.

Unless top 4 is acheived then we also have to come to terms with hazard no longer here too.

3.) 01 Feb 2018 16:32:41
C1955, yeah frustration is a better word. It was more towards on social media with the constant heated exchanges between fans. In fairness at the ground itself the atmosphere hasn't been too bad and majority of the fans are clearly behind Conte.
We've been in this situation before. Both under Ancelotti and Mourinho. Both have successful seasons and the board do very little to improve the team in the summer which inevitably costs us. It's a Merry go round and the only person that gets in trouble is the manager. But with Conte struggling to change this is why personally we he needs to move on. I'm a massive admirer of his but what he's doing simply isn't working anymore and there's been a bad relationship between him and the board for some time now. Get through this season and rebuild under a new manager but one that hopefully the board will back with tranfers a lot better than they have with Conte. Personally I'd love to see Luiz in the midfield besides Kante as he can offer more going forward and is better with the ball. We saw that against spurs at the start of the season but haven't used it since. I just feel with what happened between him and Conte he isn't going to be used as much anymore.

4.) 01 Feb 2018 16:54:31
CFCshark, we have a good core within this team.
Morata (when he's on it) .
The problem is everybody else around them pushed well above their weight last season and took everybody by surprise. Alonso, Moses, Pedro, Cahill, all these players had great seasons under the new formation and tactics and took everybody by surprise. Now with teams knowing how to play against us their lack of quality has been showing and they've been a big factor in our downfall. No doubt this team should still be good enough to atleast finish top 4 but now if we want to continue to compete, these players need moving on in the summer. I would even throw in Fabregas as he hasn't been the same all season and it getting on. The only positive about this is that hopefully next season with players coming back to the team it can allow the deadwood to move on easier. Hudson-odio for Pedro. Zouma for Cahill. RLC for Drinkwater or Fabregas. Tammy as well. Then we can focus on spending money on important areas to improve like our wing backs and wingers. We just need a new manager who would trust our youth and not call for needles squad depth.

5.) 02 Feb 2018 08:26:02
What I don’t understand is last season when we were losing a game, Conte would switch to 4 at the back in order to chase the game. This season as far as I’m aware he hasn’t done so. Instead he’s done pretty much like for like substitutions with perhaps the most attacking sub being Pedro as WB.



17 Sep 2017 12:51:46
Our line up worries me a lot. Cahill over Rudiger, Cesc playing in a two man midfield, moses over Zappacosta. Understand Hazard on the bench but looking at both teams i can really see Arsenal controlling this game. Hope I'm wrong, I'll still go for us two edge it 2-1 👍.


1.) 17 Sep 2017 13:01:34
I'd have expected Moses to start as Zappacosta has only been here a few weeks. Slightly surprised by Fabregas starting but then again Arsenals midfield is their weak point. Definitely surprised by Rudiger being dropped but maybe Conte sees Cahill having more big match experience in the PL?



19 Aug 2017 23:59:49
We're soo lucky to have Conte as our manager. I know this isn't a "rumour" but Conte's recent comments about the club and what he aims to achieve with us is music to my ears and beats any transfer Chelsea have/ will make. If there was any sort of problem with the board throughout the summer it seems to have been resolved for now.

It's been a long time coming for the club to fully back a manger and their project, to give them time to create their own team and way of play. We haven't been that type of club for a while but i truely hope Conte is given the chance and is backed if/ when Chelsea go through bad patches.

The success the club seems to have with the current philosophy with managers i struggle to see this happening though, Conte's a man who likes to have full control and Chelsea aren't a club who let's managers have it. This will be a huge year for him and hopefully for us as a club, to move away from our reputation for sacking managers as soon as things look bad and to give the guy at least a few years to create his own team🤞🤞.


1.) 20 Aug 2017 08:09:42
100% agree. He knows exactly what he wants and what players he needs in order to achieve it. There are a couple more players (no names) he wants to get rid but he will do it his way.

2.) 20 Aug 2017 09:57:47
If conte bought players in and struggled as the board I wouldn't throw money at him but he done superb job and got best of players to his disposal, with the players he wants and bit more control we could really push on especially in Europe, plus with conte there's no drama or fa fines and ridiculous mind games.

If Willian and Pedro leave we'll likely get a Bailey or a Malcom as a starting RW. I'd then rather Hudson-Odoi be our backup winger over Mertens. May only be 17 but he's good enough to feature in this team. I'd much rather keep him around, play him in the Domestic cup games and the early stages of Europa whilst learning from the likes of Hazard and Sarri than send him on some pointless loan were his needs aren't a priority.

Would personally prefer Golovin over Seri as he's younger and seems to have more of an end product imo. As for our targets, if you believe what you read then we're interested in Seri, Golovin, Bailey, Malcom, Lewandowski, Martial, ndombele, Rugani, Manolas, Higuain and Vecino. Obviously these are just rumours and there may be more but it does seem like Martial, Bailey, Seri, Golovin and another CB is the main priority atm. One thing that we have going our way is that nearly all of our targets are not at the world cup so we don't need to rush things.

And when you consider the amount of players the board may look to move along it will take time. As for Sarri's play style Martial will suit it more than what the other strikers we've been linked with will. May not be a pressing type but under Sarri playing the number 9 role he'll likely adapt to it.

That goes for Hazard and RLC aswell since they're not the pressing type either. I also wouldn't expect things to go a lot quicker in the transfer market either once/ if Sarri is appointed. Players like Martial and Bailey may go on right until the end of the window.

Azpi will likely move back to the full back position next season so it won't affect him. As for Christensen, if Sarri is appointed manager he'll likely be a starter. He's the only CB that is really suitable to flurish in Sarri's play style. Add that to the fact Luiz is likely off with Cahill and Zouma, we'll be in need of another CB. Only person this will have a negative affect on may be Rudiger as i can't see him performing well in a two CB partnership. Manolas will be more suitable in that area for me but personally someone like Rugani would be better than both.

Just holding talks doesn't mean we're after him. Just keeping our options open which is the right thing to do. I'd be very suprised if they end up appointing him though.

This entire situation has just been ridiculous. Trying not to pay much attention to this fiasco but with our board it obviously wasn't going to be anything simple. This entire situation doesn't suprise me at all. From us supposedly ready to pay the clause, to waiting for it to expire, to trying to negotiate a fee with Napoli, to then making it into a legal battle. Best one i've seen yet is Marina supposedly being on holiday during the transfer window and will return next week to start negotiations. Doubt a lot of those are true especially the last one but hey, with our board it wouldn't surprise me. I think it'll sort itself out one way or another but it seems like we're in for another long, frustrating summer.

He has a €50million release clause so that's the amount anyone will have to pay to get him as i highly doubt Madrid will accept anything lower. It's understandable that he'll struggle to get game time with club and country considering he's competing with the likes of Kroos, Modric, Isco, Casmeiro and Rakitic. He's always been a talented player, he just needs consistent game time under a manager who'd use him right. He'd be perfect for Chelsea in a 433 formation with Sarri as our manager. Unfortunately Chelsea likely won't go after him as they'd have to pay up a big chunk of money. It's why i also don't believe in these Pjanic rumours which have been going around lately.

Conte is anything but our manager. Everybody knows he's not staying. The board hates him and he hates the board, the only reason this is taking soo long is that the board are reluctant to pay the man off since they despise eachover. They're hoping another team comes along for him so we won't have to pay him but obviously Conte isn't stupid enough to do that. Conte doesn't want to be here as much as the board don't want him here. I have no doubt the board have a "plan" but from what we've seen from them over the past few years fans have every right to be sceptical about thus plan.

Not going to lie to you Loko but the woman comparison was pretty odd i must say. In terms of this whole manager sitiation us not knowing anything is the problem, everybody is told something different everyday. People just want this managerial position sorted out so we can focus on our targets. But when you see this whole thing with Sarri it continues to raise questions on our board. I haven't believed everything i've seen regarding this whole fiasco but it's clear it's just been a big mess and there must be truth in some of it. Some people don't realise how important it is in seeing who the next manager will be so of course they'll be a lot of attention regarding it. We all know if Conte stays Hazard is likely leaving as well as a few others. No player is bigger than the club but with us already falling behind the others losing Hazard will be a huge blow. People want Sarri because he could be the most likely manager to convince Hazard to stay because of the football he provides. So when we all see these rumours about us not paying the clause and what not people will get frustrated. No doubt in my mind that the majority of the fans will get behind whoever is in charge once it happens but with little options out there people are becoming desperate in wanting everything done quickly. You're right though we'll just have to wait and see, but it is hard not getting caught up with all the rumours since us fans want the best options out there.

Obinna i can guarantee you that if we had played this beautiful "attacking football" that you desire we would've lost this game. Look what Liverpool have done against City. And City have much better attacking players than us. We beat them because we didn't allow much space for their attacking trio to run into. We played deep and got in the way, that's the best way to play them. I wanted us to counter attack a little more however to kill the game off but the game plan was excellent and was executed perfectly. Maybe next season we can try and play a more attacking style under the new manager but today wasn't a time to try it.
