That was hands down our worst performance in quite a few years. Don't ever like to blame Conte but i don't know what we were doing when Morata went off. Constant hoof ball to Hazard? Constantly passing it back without any intention to go forward. my god that was horrible. Of course once we got Bats on we could hold the ball a bit more. who would've thought huh?

Oh well hopefully Morata's injury isn't too bad and good thing it's an international break now. We were never favourites to begin the season like last year, but after that I'd be stunned if the trophy doesn't end up in Manchester. One positive although was Christensen, he was class and hands down our best player. This game will hopefully mean he starts from now on, he's our best ball playing CB and rarely makes mistakes.

In all fairness he's not as good on the ball as Luiz but defensive wise he's flawless.

2.) 01 Oct 2017 08:40:07
This all means it is time to move Cahill on, he slows us down always negative, rarely thinks positively, always passing back.



13 Sep 2017 02:43:43
Absolutely gutted Musonda wasn't even involved for this game, i understand not wanting to take risks but not even putting him on the bench is harsh. Qarabag was maybe one of the worst teams we've played in Europe, it could've been a perfect opportunity to play him in the 2nd half and let him show what he is capable of without any pressure. Hope he starts against Forest in the cup, he deserves the chance and has waited long enough for it. Can't afford to let this lad slip away, really think he'll be a special player in a few years if given the chance.


1.) 13 Sep 2017 14:58:21
Couldn't agree more, desperate to see him play.

2.) 13 Sep 2017 20:12:44
It's fine saying they are the worst team. But until the game starts you can't make any assumptions.
Musonda will get a chance prob against Forest.
So let's be glad we won and let's get ready for Arsenal.

3.) 13 Sep 2017 21:28:11
Well said 7052andrew.

4.) 13 Sep 2017 22:53:04
So don't u think we've not had people looking at qarabag we should know what they were like or someone has not done there job.

5.) 14 Sep 2017 00:01:19
Musonda is a good young player and he will get his chance.
Its not always easy for a young player to break into the first team squad of a big team like Chelsea. Let's be patient with the coach's decision on Musonda (remember his preseason was a bit sketchy) .
I strongly believe that Musonda, Loftus Cheek (if he stays fit) and A. Christensen (if he extends his deal) will make it at Chelsea.

Barkley Most likely rejected the move in fear of being a bench player a year before a world cup. Let's be honest here, as frustrating as a window it's been it really was no suprise that Barkley and Ox rejected the move here. I'm suprised Barkley left it soo late but didn't expect him to join nether the less.

Ox wasn't joining as he doesn't want a Rwb role, he wasn't exactly getting into our midfield was he. Don't know what happened with Llorente as it didn't seem we tried to match anything. We got cover with rwb/ lwb and Cm with Drinkwater (hopefully) and Zappacosta which was needed the most.

Our starting 11 won us the league last year so why change it soo quickly? We needed depth and we got some with the two players. Obviously a couple of injuries and it's fair to say we'll be in trouble, especially at ST. My only issue is why it was left soo late to do anything.

Why didn't we know Ox wouldn't join us if he was going to play him at Rwb ages ago? Why did we never end up bidding for Llorente? No doubt it seems our boars lacks a sense of urgency to get deals done and it has cost us to some degree but we have a starting 11 that can match any team in the Bpl and there's always the January window if things go south.


1.) 01 Sep 2017 12:30:16
LondonBlues90, U are right about the their fear of sitting on the bench at Chelsea. We don't need to sweat their loss cos they aren't good enough for Chelsea's first team. Ox Chamberlain is a Jack of all trade and master of none while Barkley can't displace any of our Chelsea midfielders.

May be they also need to play too (so that they can make the World cup squad) might have influenced their decision.
I like the players we bought, i think they will do very well.



31 Aug 2017 02:58:15
Looks like the only signing that'll make our fans happy that's realistic and possible now is Mahrez. Would love him here with a front 3 of Hazard Morata and Mahrez but it doesn't seem like we've made a bid nor have shown any concrete interest. He's definitely moving tomorow so we'll soon see where to.


1.) 31 Aug 2017 04:11:20
I wonder if Contes going to be forced to convert one of Pedro or Willian into a wb seeing as we haven't managed to sign a single one whilst so many have switched clubs this window. I guess that's the only way I see us going in for Mahrez.

Damn it two weeks ago I was in the No Ross Barkley corner now I just hope anyone signs. Even Barkley.

2.) 31 Aug 2017 06:39:21
I think Wilian would make an excellent wing back with his work ethic. As a forward as good as he is the end result let's him down but he always gets good reviews for the shift he puts in, much of it tracking back.

3.) 31 Aug 2017 07:11:49
Mahrez talking with Barca, Algerian fa have confirmed,

{Ed001's Note - no they have not, they have just said he has been allowed to leave their training camp to complete a deal to join a club. They refused to name or confirm a name of the team he is talking to.}

4.) 31 Aug 2017 07:47:44
Willian is a jibber when it comes to tackles though.

5.) 31 Aug 2017 11:26:50
Apologises 001, read about leaving Algeria and reports about Barcelona 2 and 2 and got to 5, cheers for responses from everyone today appreciated.

{Ed001's Note - no worries mate.}

6.) 31 Aug 2017 11:36:09
Just do t see why we would need Mahrez? The wing is the one position that I feel confident that we have covered (other than CB/ GK, but let me exaggerate! )



30 Aug 2017 09:12:09
So Ox seemed to have turned down Chelsea for a possible move to Liverpool. Would be gutted about this but since it's due to him only wanting to play Cm and not Rwb I'm not too bothered. How he thinks he'd have a chance getting into their current midfield is beyond me. A shame though, really think Conte could've made him into a special wing back.


1.) 30 Aug 2017 09:36:30
There's a good chance that Ox Chamberlain will end up at Chelsea.

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.



15 Aug 2017 09:33:53
i was curious if Chelsea have had any sort of encouragement from Sandro's agent or such to keep pursuing him? I know Chelsea have been trying to convince Juve to sell from what Ed said in the past and that they're still being reluctant to not sell. But if he was to hand in a transfer request then it might force Juve's hand to negotiate.

But since he hasn't yet i thought maybe he isn't determined to move to Chelsea enough to force it. Either that or he doesn't want to risk creating a bad relationship with the club and fans like it has with other players which wouldn't surprise me.




14 Aug 2017 18:45:33
The talk about us being stupid in letting Matic go to United after his game is hilarious. Don't think they ever saw him for us last season at all. I remember when he first came and how dominant he was for half a season. Letting him go was not an issue, he wanted to leave and wanted United so it was hard to say no for £40m.

The issue was letting him go when Bakayoko wasn't fit yet or not having another midfielder in to replace him. Not surprised he's performing well, he's a great player but didn't want to play for us anymore which led to his average performances last season. A shame it had to be United as he'll play such a big part in their title challenge but I'm not disappointed in selling him, I'm disappointed in the timing.


1.) 14 Aug 2017 19:47:57
There's nothing hilarious about it. Don't be naive. The club was unable to keep him because former manager convinced him to join him. And RA was soft to Matic the same way he was soft to Čeh and Ivanovic.

{Ed002's Note - I have explaine dthe situation - you seem to be making this up.}

I never really pay any attention to the media nowadays but personally I'd be surprised if he did indeed stay. We're a club that likes to go through manager to manager whenever things go south not matter how highly rated you are or much you're loved by fans (Mourinho, Ancelotti) . If we fail to win anything this year or we fall far behind in the league he'll be gone as hard as it is to say. I remember reading a while ago as well that he wanted more control and to be seen as an actual manager rather than a "Head coach". Club is bigger than anyone so if he does go we'll move on as always, but this one would hurt more than any other.

Don't believe it. BEin sports the one reporting it and they haven't exactly been reliable. Said Ox was going to sign a contract with us and said Coutinho was going to Barcelona. Nobody even knows where the damn guy is 😂. Would love him but can't see it.

Our starting 11 last year was never an issue our depth was, now we're adding quality depth apparently that's seen as a negative. Barkley is a young talent who's Bpl proven and Drinkwater as a Bpl winner, Llorente who adds something different and Ox who's an exciting young talent who covers a lot of areas we're short in. How that's seen as a negative is beyond me.

It's not like we haven't tried to improve either with Sandro, Van Dijk and now Mahrez. Like Conte said a while ago it's a long project, you're not going to get all your targets in one window and sometimes it's out of your hands. We're not a club like PSG ot City anymore who'll offer stupid wages and money for players to join and a lot of our fans need to realise that.

Exactly, remember when Fabregas came out of nowhere and was done almost instantly. Luiz happened within a day as well. Looking forward to who we get in.

I'd rather sell willian and go for Belotti and go two up top. Barcelona will pay way over the top for him now and we'll have funds for the move. But that's asking too much most likely. Realistically sell Willian and get Mahrez as a replacement would be ideal if we plan on keeping the formation the same. But i can't see it, we're seriously struggling to get anything done with such little time left that i just can't believe our board would be that insane to sell another player without bringing one in. But with they way this window has gone it wouldn't suprise me lol.

Denningtonbear, yeah United weren't anything special today but that's how Mourinho always sets up in big away games. If United had gone at Liverpool they'd have had a much better chance of winning. In terms of the squad it's the 2nd best in the league imo behind city and I'd only say theirs is better than ours because of their depth. I wouldn't be soo down about our start if the likes off Christensen and Musonda were playing more regular, Christensen deserves to be starting and Musonda should be ahead of willian in the team but isn't. On a positive note though we do have some real young talent. Zouma with Christensen and Azpi in defence next season will be a joy and Tammy will hopefully be big for us as well👍.

Personally i doubt the players saved themselves, i think they were just very very poor today and being poorly set up didn't help. I do believe though that the players know it'll be between the two Manchester teams. The quality in them two teams (especially city) and the chasing pack is pretty huge after their transfer windows. One thing you have to do once you win the league is to improve your team, we didn't and now We're paying the price. I think Conte will leave at the end of the season if he makes it and maybe he'd want a good CL run when/ if he does leave to end off. Like you said that Athletico performance was special and it shows we can compete with most teams in Europe when fit, i can see a good CL run but can't see us winning it. My biggest fear is missing out on top 4 and Conte leaving as well as Hazard and Courtois.

For me it's been the way we've set up in games which is costing us, poor team selections and we always seem to play like the away team whether we're home or away. We give opposition teams soo much control with the ball and allow them to attack us. Arsenal game we should have lost, let them control the game, City game we lost, let them control the game from start to finish and even against medicore teams we give them chances to take control of the game and create chances with ease. Now take all that with injuries and players playing nowhere near the ability of last year and you'll get performances like that. Oh yeah and the inability to add QUALITY depth to this team was another mistake.

He'll get a lot of chances to prove his worth especially once we go into December and onwards. A lot of congested games in the league as well as being in 3 other cup competitions (if we progress in the EFL cup) . Just needs to be patient.

Yeah I'm worried about the game at the weekend as well. No Kante or Morata, two players who are crucial to our play style and we don't have same level of quality to replace them on the bench. I'd be surprised if Palace don't score but hopefully Hazard can run rings around their defenders. Hope Luiz starts in midfield with Bakayoko and maybe play Cesc in a 352 but Baka and Cesc in a 2 man midfield doesn't give me confidence at all.
