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. 👍

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.



15 Mar 2018 09:50:49
Scoreline doesn't reflect our performance at all tbh. Thought Willian, Kante and Rudiger can leave with their head held high after their performances, they were excellent. Mistakes once again was the deciding factor in both legs as it has been in a lot of our losses this season.

The fans got what they wanted in Conte starting a striker to allow Hazard on the wing but he didn't do enough at all in either legs when we needed him which is disappointing. Next two games are the big ones however, wasn't really going to challenge in this Competition but FA cup and top 4 is still alive and with Kane out for our game at home vs Spurs we have a real chance of catching them.

This season and next season really rely on these two games now. Also only negative to say on this game is how awful Courtois was once again. He clearly doesn't want to be here and his abysmal performances show it. Never seen a goalkeeper open his legs so much for the opposition.

Couldn't care less if he leaves as long as Hazard doesn't go with him. Respect to all the fans who made the journey there and hopefully they have a safe trip home 👍.


1.) 15 Mar 2018 18:21:44
Totally agree for Courtois. I never really liked him too tall awkward and bad with his feet. Also Hazard needs to go too.

2.) 16 Mar 2018 09:57:59
If Hazard is worth £150m+, what is Kante worth!

3.) 16 Mar 2018 17:12:07
Kante should be valued around the same as Hazard easily. But in todays market attacking players are usually valued higher than defensive ones so he most likely isn't. Although the guy is irreplaceable for us so i wouldn't consider any sum for him. He's the core of our team but i hope in the summer we can get a top midfielder to play alongside him. Or atleast put Luiz in there which i think would suit us perfectly.

4.) 17 Mar 2018 11:34:49
Totally agree about Courtoise, thought clearly to blame for first goal. Also thought his positioning for for second and third were poor.
I have always thought that if you have a great keeper the team may have a poor day but the keeper keeps you in those games. I have never felt he was like that. Lately every mistake the team makes we end up conceding.
So sell him and get in for butland or the burnley keeper pope.



21 Feb 2018 11:12:26
I'll admit i wasn't optimistic when i saw the line up. Cesc in a two man midfield against good teams never really worked before tonight and with the way we play with our crossing i feared Hazard wasn't going to have an impact on the game. Hazard wasn't great until Morata came on, but false 9 really shouldn't be his position tbf. Willian was excellent and maybe a lot of our fans can back off him now.

Only criticism i have is not bringing Morata on earlier. Hazard is at his best when playing with a striker as we saw and Pedro was clearly knackered after his excellent closing down in the first half. Maybe if we had a presence up top like Morata or Giroud their goal may have been avoided. We showed we could beat anyone when we beat Athletico earlier on in the season.

Problem was players kept getting injured and lost form. People would be foolish to rule us out in big European games, we seem to relish them especially when we're the underdogs. Now back to the league and a massive game against United, looking forward to it!


1.) 21 Feb 2018 12:00:01
Pedro didn’t do much but his work rate and pressing was sensational and I’m glad that didn’t go un noticed amongst our fans.

2.) 21 Feb 2018 13:15:16
In the return where we must score I would play Giroud, Morata and Hazard and slip Willian to right wing back which should keep the pressure on the Barcelona defence. Willian's form currently going forward is excellent and he has the shot from distance in his armoury, decent crosser of the ball and pace to get forward and back. He did OK but I worry about Fabregas when he has no time or space and he has to tackle.

3.) 21 Feb 2018 14:05:41
I’d go 3-5-2 but play Willian as part of the midfield with Luiz and Kante as he’s excellent at breaking away.

4.) 21 Feb 2018 23:21:32
Where does this notion that Fabregas can't play in a 2 man midfield? We've won two premier league titles with Fabregas in a 2, first with Matic and then with Kante (not so much as main partnership was Matic-Kante)

5.) 22 Feb 2018 05:13:21
The fact that SB is a much more compact ground helps Cesc in a 2 man midfield with Kante. at the NC, we will need his vision and range of passing for hazard willian and morata to be effective.

the only change i reckon could be Morata for Pedro.

Pedro had a good game, his positioning and closing was very good, i thought.
the whole team stuck to a plan and executed it well.



06 Feb 2018 00:00:26
That should be Conte gone now. I feel for the guy for what he's done here, and for it to go like this is heartbreaking but he only has himself to blame. Kept selecting Bakayoko when he hasn't performed all season as well as Pedro and Cahill. Plays 7 defensive players twice in the space on a week against two average mid table teams. People can blame the board for not being able to compete against City and such yes. But not being able to compete against teams like Bournemouth and Watford is completely unacceptable and that's down to Conte.

These games weren't even close, we got completely outplayed on both games, yes they shouldn't of had the penalty but it was fully deserved. Our team should be good enough to beat these teams, but the way we set up against them is utterly embaressing. Not only do teams know how to play against us, we ALLOW them to play. Things need to change because we're not finishing top 4 with the way it's going. And with the summer we need to rebuild this team. top 4 is crucial for us.




25 Jan 2018 12:01:53
Not going to be too negative with this post as i expected this result despite us being pretty unlucky tonight and not looking too bad. Ever since Conte became our manager we've struggled against Arsenal on numerous occasions as the way we set up against them simply suits them perfectly. We started excellently but for some reason dropped off once we went ahead (Shocker) .

We simply can't rely on our defence anymore, it's been terrible recently and even against Brighton we were lucky not to concede. Something needs to change, we can't play 3-4-3 as we become worse defensively. But We also can't play 3-5-2 as we look awful going forward.

Also i thought Bakayoko was good tonight, should've had an assist but was solid throughout and especially when he's been struggling hopefully this will help the lad. In the end we move on but something needs to change, I'm in no way in the "Conte out" brigade but i know he's a manager who struggles to change his system.

I just fear with the way we've been playing recently and with our upcoming fixtures things aren't looking good. Hopefully we have our full squad back for Bournemouth and put this game behind us with a win.

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.



16 Aug 2017 23:58:24
Been "Rumoured" that Chelsea have had another bid for Sandro rejected, this time for around €70m + add ons. If it's true and that can't tempt Juve then i think it's fair to say this just isn't going to happen this summer lol. The board have done all they can with this but it looks as if Sandro doesn't want to force it. Maybe try another time but it just seems a lost cause at this point.


1.) 17 Aug 2017 01:02:12
If what you posted is true and the player didn't hand in a transfer request, then the club should move on from Alex Sandro without any regrets.

I still maintain that he isn't the only wingback in Europe.

Kalidou Koulibaly, Rooney, Cavani, Pogba, Falcao (the first time) etc. all players we had similar scenarios with AND WE ARE STILL HERE WAXING STRONG. I SAY MOVE ON FROM HIM.

With the amount of young talent we have here, that's about the only real positive out of us finishing in the Europa league spot. I still don't see us selling Hazard even if we were to not get Champions League. I think we'll price Real out and hopefully with a new manager and some good bussiness in the summer, we can convince him to stay. Courtois i can see the most likely to leave but i just can't see the club letting Thibo AND Hazard leave in the summer.

Would like Baka to be given another year but just not in the starting line-up. Zappa is an ok back up and with Fabregas it completely depends on who our next manager will be. If we get a attacking minded manager, keep him. If we get another counter attacking style manager then sell him. Agree with the rest though. I'm more looking forward to the summer transfer window than any of our remaining games now. We have to do soo much bussiness that it'll be interesting to see who's brought in.

We'll have to wait and see. I thought getting Dzeko was a weird one since he's over 30 but since it was reported he'd come with Emerson i thought it could happen. Not suprised though if it falls through, Slimani is being thrown around for a loan and now Kurzawa. Personally i can't pay attention to our transfer bussiness this Window until it's over now, it's becoming embaressing and just making this season that more frustrating.

Yeah this was a few days ago before Dzeko rumours came around thankfully. I agree if we get those two along with Barkley it's been a good window. Tie up Courtois and Hazard to new contracts and I'd be a great one.

Lol Ed0333 i agree with you. I wouldn't be surprised if it's partly why we've been so inconsistent and poor defensively all season. Seems as if the players have known it for some time. Wish him the best of luck though when it happens, just truly hope we can end it on a high with him.


{Ed0333's Note - he won you a premiership mate and that’s a profound achievement. I love Conte as a personality as he takes no crap, says it like it is and doesn’t give those banal Brendan Rogers type interviews. As a manager/coach I think he has failings but hey ho not everyone is Arrigo Sacchi. I’m sure you guys will give him the sending off he deserves when it happens regardless of the situation.

Wouldn't say your players had no desire tbh i just think they followed a game plan to be solid defensively and just sneak a 1-0 or 2-0 win but it just backfired. It's how Mourinho likes to play and it does well in the league but in Europe it can be a problem. But thanks anyway and i agree just silly mistakes costs us and Messi being Messi. Players and the majority of our fan base have been behind Conte but he's been part of the problem at times this season. I think the players don't have a probpem with him but he's set up in games poorly at times and his bad relationship with our board hasn't helped in the slightest. He'll most likely be off at the end of the season even if we managed to get top 4 because of what's happened since the summer.


{Ed0333's Note - Theres more chance of Liberace coming back from the dead and having an affair with Theresa May then there is of Conte staying at Chelsea beyond this season.

Yeah we really miss the way he bullied defenders, Morata can really be a embaressing player to watch. He has a lot in his game but the way he falls to the floor at the slightest touch is truely infuriating. It doesn't help when referees give fouls to united when we breathe on Pogba but not for Morata but he needs to realise refs aren't giving him the calls and needs to man up. This is why i'd prefer to start Giroud from now on, at least he uses his physicality and challenges defenders. He may not have Morata's movement but he'll be on his feet more than on his backside at least.

God no. Only players i'd consider getting in a swap deal plush cash is Isco or Asensio. Eventhough Bale is class, he's too injury prone. Even if he was to stay fit he's past his peak imo. But i would be very suprised if Bale would accept that move anyway.

I'd like to see a 433 formation with this team but it'd mean being under a new manager as there's no way Conte would play this. With our defense this may be an unpopular opinion but if we were to play a 433 I'd put Azpi at RB, have Christensen and Zouma as the Cb's and Emerson or Alonso as the LB. A Hazard, Morata and Bailey attack would be amazing. As for the midfield i think we'd need someone like Milinkinov-Savic or Vidal to play with Kante and Maybe RLC or Barkley just so we have defensive cover. It all depends on our next manager and what we do in the summer. 433 with the current team just wouldn't work imo.
