Out played by West Ham shocking performance wrong team selection get Willian or Pedro on we require people that go past people not route one Bolton football glueless.


1.) 09 Dec 2017 15:07:57
Burnley, Palace and now West ham. Not to mention getting lucky against Swansea. It's embarrassing how bad we play against poor teams who just defend. Morata has been missing chances left, right and centre for months now and Bakayoko just is not himself, can't keep the ball, can't pass and constantly making mistakes leading to goals. If Hazard and Fabregas aren't on their game we're just awful to watch. Batshuayi could do no worse than Morata. Ampadu, Drinkwater or my neighbours cat are better options than Baka right now. Conte needs to be ruthless, the players he's trusting are constantly letting him down. Whether he doesn't trust his other options or not he needs to change this line up. January can't come soon enough but after the window in the summer i can't even be optimistic about it.

2.) 09 Dec 2017 15:09:33
We didn’t play up to our normal standard
and I stated my views in an earlier post but I do NOT think we were “outplayed”.
We have so many games coming up at least we can quickly put this result behind us!

3.) 09 Dec 2017 17:02:56
I’d say outplayed, apart from morata miss we didn’t create anything. They were comfortable, they defended better attacked better, won midfield battle too, they sat back because they didn’t want to chase us about and leave themselves open . so disappointing, also this 352 is great but when I doesn’t work our options are willian and Pedro. Pedro I like. And scores some big goals, but Willian? Big window coming up. that’s palace West Ham and Burnley to beat us. conte was right, we’ve not been in title race at all this season.

4.) 09 Dec 2017 17:32:30
I was at the game and although I was a long way from the pitch (isn’t everyone at that athletics stadium) I can’t be having we were outplayed.
I guess people see things differently on TV than at the match.

5.) 09 Dec 2017 18:12:44
They let us have the ball because we were no threat and on counter they were. Even if we “ outplayed “ them, it was what they wanted, they let us have ball because in there 3rd they defended easily. Was just a bad bad game, nobody come away from Chelsea team having been better than anyone else, . We move on. Next games as big as the last with way things are so 3 points is a must,

6.) 09 Dec 2017 21:52:03
agree Tom. we outplayed thm just couldn't score . but when a team scores an early goal . they are going to have 11 men behind the ball its very difficult to break down. they played very narrow and made a big pitch look. very small.
agree we were poor and the players look very tired n not up for it.

7.) 10 Dec 2017 00:45:57
Them going one up within 6 mins and giving them something to hang to wasn’t part of the plan.
Unfortunately I was in the company of a West Ham season ticket holder tonight and he said that’s the best they have played since they beat us in the League Cup.
How lucky are we to support a team that wins more games that it loses plus wins competitions!

8.) 10 Dec 2017 08:23:22
Bad day, kick up the arse and go again.

9.) 10 Dec 2017 09:43:55
That’s the plan Matt.



28 Aug 2017 15:00:18
Why are we not making bids? we're done if we don't boost squad up.


1.) 28 Aug 2017 15:06:22
We are Nibby!
Making bids in public won't do us any favours!

2.) 28 Aug 2017 16:08:40
Agree that public bids is out of order on player / selling club ambit agree things seem quiet, 2 will come in possibly 3, just worry it'll be a disappointing few, BUT once in the blue shirt we support them regardless.

3.) 28 Aug 2017 19:44:25
Buck our ideas up. stupid leaving it this late.



26 Jul 2017 15:22:16
Eds would we have any interest in Barkley now he's set to leave.


{Ed018's Note - I'm not aware of any interest at the moment in Barkley from Chelsea}

1.) 26 Jul 2017 21:29:19
Ok thanks I would take him think he would bring abit more energy in midfield.

2.) 27 Jul 2017 06:57:05
Everton price him at 50 million. Unrealistic as that may be, you know how annoying they are to deal with. Even though they've guaranteed he leaves this summer, hell still be overpriced for what he could bring to Chelsea.
Glad to hear were staying out of this one.

3.) 27 Jul 2017 07:23:11
Typical case of, 'When the desirable isn't available, the available becomes the desirable'. Kudos to those handling these transfers cos- IT AIN'T EASY.

4.) 27 Jul 2017 08:54:41
Dont want him. Another Rodwell. All youngsters from that neck of the woods get over hyped.

5.) 27 Jul 2017 20:59:00
Barkley and Rodwell have absolutely nothing in common. Barkley is a CAM and offensive CM, Rodwell is a CDM. Rodwell suffered extremely hard injury and actually never recovered. It seems that we are not interested in Barkley, but I'm confident that he would be excellent solution for Chelsea.

6.) 28 Jul 2017 09:14:26
I didn't mean they are the same player. I know what positions they play in (my son plays fifa too) . i meant that a lot of youngsters from everton and liverpool have massive hype and turn out to be average players. Especially if they move to a top 4 team. Especially city.

7.) 28 Jul 2017 14:13:44
You cannot generalise. Barkley is much more serious prospect than Rodwell and others were. If there is a club that didn't give a chance to young and talented players that's Chelsea.

8.) 28 Jul 2017 21:02:19
Its a fact that we buy British players for HG. Very rare they become big. Terry Lamps big exceptions.
But sidwell sinclair parker etc.?



16 Apr 2017 23:13:57
Gets difficult, conte hadn't a clue. said it at beginning of season. one plan he gets found out and he doesn't know what to do. fear champions league next year when we pop up against great sides with the squad we have. been lucky this year we've had only league to think about and we're making hard wrk of that. Moses, matic, begovic, Costa all got to go. terrible today, terrible.


1.) 16 Apr 2017 23:27:58
Well nibs that's over the top. we are still top of the league, have an easier run in than the spuds, and were outplayed by a team managed by someone who knows more about our players than Conte does. I had this down as one of our losses.

2.) 17 Apr 2017 01:26:12
People like you really make me embarrass to be a Chelsea fan.

We finished tenth last year. This year we're currently top and the league is more competitive as Guardiola is now managing here. If someone would have offered w top four at the start of the season I would have bitten their hand off. Yes we've lost our way a bit but we were never going to be so great all the time. We're still a work in progress. With a better squad we'll do even better next year I'm sure.

3.) 17 Apr 2017 07:38:57
Nibby, are you Jose in disguise?

4.) 17 Apr 2017 09:03:07
As a Liverpool fan i have to say that is one of the most laughable posts i've seen, top of the league, 4 points clear, playing decent footy. cluelesss.

5.) 17 Apr 2017 09:26:27
Nibby, I respect you view and a small amount of what you say has some merit. We have had the advantage of playing one game a week along with Liverpool and since early in the New Year Spurs as well.

This is the first year of Conte and he has been a class act all season and like Pep he has made mistakes but I bet ALL the City supporters would love to be I'm our place.
In fact ever other team in the Premier League wants to be in our place.

Next year the squad will be bigger and stronger and I hope some of the young players are given a chance. We will win the league and maybe complete another double. This from a team who finished tenth last year.
I call these Happy days.

6.) 17 Apr 2017 09:41:07
Nibby, you have lost the plot mate! Sure Conte made a mistake by not simply replacing Alonso with either Ake or Pedro but the manager has come out and said HE was at fault.

As we know Jose blames his players when his teams lose. Remember last year and he has repeated his blame games at Utd.
In Conte I trust.

7.) 17 Apr 2017 14:44:22
Moses? Really he's the best.

8.) 17 Apr 2017 15:44:21
This is one of the reasons I stopped posting on here. Are you for real Nibby? Victor Moses is quite possibly the biggest success story this season as a player. The guy has been an absolute revelation! We got outplayed, it happens. We've outplayed pretty much everyone all year. I doubt Man City fans were calling for all their players to be sold when we demolished them at the Etihad.
I agree with you on some points. Matic has to go, he's been poor all season and has been made to look good next to Kante. Costa has had his mind in China since January and I would consider getting rid in the summer. I also don't understand why Conte refused to put Michy on with 10 mins to go with us needing 2 goals. If you don't rate him why was he bought?
We do need to strengthen in the summer as our squad is bare in the wing back position, but calm down Nibby, Spurs won't win all their games left!

9.) 17 Apr 2017 20:02:38
Steady steady it's my opinion Moses as been at the club how many years and sent on loan ( at good clubs ) and given bak with no offers. And he's no robben my opinion he wouldn't get in any top four team
And the conte thing a top pundit said he's clueless in the way of when things go wrong he doesn't no how to change things and Let's be honest he hasn't, getting the team ready and motivated not a problem but reacting to something he's predictable and doesn't fill me with confidence am not Jose mourinho in disguise but remember he's done great things at our club and that he has the brains to react and he has shown this in matches over the years I no what contes doing so top managers will love his passion and heart it's my opinion if you all think with people like Moses matic are going to take us to the next level then am not the one who has so called lost the plot just think would he get in the big teams I don't think so it was embarrassing yesterday against a poor United team manager won it for them and we didn't have a clue.

10.) 17 Apr 2017 20:56:17
Ed01 did you not say something to this effect about conte some time ago. His inability to react and change things.

{Ed001's Note - yep. Maybe he meant me by top pundit? ;-) Tactically he has shown a tendency to get caught out, in European Champions League football anyway. He is human and does have weaknesses, shame you can't put his passion and ability to get more from lesser players together with a number two who has the tactical brain to help him out. Well its not a shame for the rest of the Prem!}

11.) 17 Apr 2017 21:58:39
Just get hammered on here having an opinion time will tell .



04 Jul 2016 14:19:01
Can't see Costa going bak now El Niño has sign a new deal.


1.) 04 Jul 2016 15:05:32
Gotta say I'm happy for Torres but I don't quite agree. They sold Martinez in January without replacing him and face the transfer ban that's likely to arrive in the near future. Also Costa and Torres have very different styles.

2.) 04 Jul 2016 15:50:33
Costa will stay.

3.) 04 Jul 2016 16:55:21
I'm still hoping for a Costa / Griesmann swap.

4.) 04 Jul 2016 17:37:27
Although I would love that swap to happen, still think Costa has a lot to offer us providing he learns to simmer down a bit and concentrates on what he's best at.

5.) 04 Jul 2016 18:29:23
Ed has already stated that Griezman won't be moving this summer.

{Ed002's Note - I am not so sure that is exactly what I said and circumstances are constantly changing and clubs constantly talking with each other.}

6.) 04 Jul 2016 19:08:09
Ed Ed Ed don't do that to us, is there an update with Griezman?

{Ed002's Note - There is nothing worth saying at this time.}

7.) 04 Jul 2016 20:32:30
But a deal may still be possible this summer?

8.) 04 Jul 2016 21:55:39
He's such a tease.

9.) 04 Jul 2016 22:38:01
{Ed002's Note - I have explained at length about Griezmann - the discussions were concluded when Chelsea were told that he would not be sold this summer and would be signing a new contract - which he will. Chelsea has moved on, you need to do the same. }

Perhaps I misinterpreted this. Thanks for the update Ed.

{Ed002's Note - And that was true. I won't say anything more about him at all.}

10.) 04 Jul 2016 22:59:49
That wasn't meant as a slight or to be argumentative. Just found the paragraph that came to mind. As you say, things change all the time in football, which you know a lot more about than I. Apologies if I came across the wrong way.

{Ed002's Note - No, as I said, he will not be mentioned again.}

Disgusting display.


1.) 09 Dec 2017 14:26:01
Loads of players could take the blame. Bakayoko is just so so bad, the boy needs to put his head straight and try his best. As again he has some blame for the goal, felt sloppy and his player ran away from him and played the wall with goal scorer. We can forget the title just need to get top 4 this year and hope we win any cup.

2.) 09 Dec 2017 14:47:33
LRDit, not sure Baka was to blame for the goal - think it was Christensen not being tight on his man. That is not to say that Baka is not a hindrance - I said last week that he is only 21 but the more I see of him, the more I think that he will never improve enough.

3.) 09 Dec 2017 15:13:40
No one is more disappointed than me but I refuse to use terms such as “disgusting” to describe any performance by my team!

4.) 09 Dec 2017 15:59:46
Well said Tom. We were very poor today. Problem was the transfer business in the summer, we just don't have enough quality players. As Ed01 has said the lady (forgot her name ) needs to have someone alongside her and take advice when dealing with transfers. Maybe we will have to pay a bit more than we would like for a player, but if we want to keep up with city and United then we have to spend the dosh.

5.) 10 Dec 2017 08:11:15
Ok it was brill.



04 Nov 2017 20:22:37
People on here get to up tight about people's views and emotions some people get hot head with bad results and like to talk about what they think went wrong and they do this off the cuff with out really thinking, but that's how they do stuff others see the game in a different way more relax and steady and when we've been beat look at the positives that's how they do stuff some are young and only really no the Roman era some are the older generation and remember what it was like not winning some think we would be able to do a better job at managing and argue at subs and formations but that's football fans were all different with different opinions attitudes and views we all should enjoy this site and stop having a go at opinions of others that are not in the same category as our own. We're all chelsea aren't we.


1.) 05 Nov 2017 07:13:18
Well said Nibby!



01 Nov 2017 05:11:21

10 Aug 2017 16:19:13
Go and get Barkley think the lad has so much talent could be so good if someone wraps arms round him and let's him play.


1.) 10 Aug 2017 16:51:03
He's bang average.

2.) 10 Aug 2017 17:26:21
I don't think the club wants to sign anymore players this summer. Transfer is closed this season for Chelsea.

3.) 10 Aug 2017 17:34:34
I think if you play in a bang average team you will perform like yhat. I think he will do good at Chelsea. Surrounded by awesome players and a awesome manager.

4.) 10 Aug 2017 18:03:14
People said lampard was average when he was with a average team in west ham. Look what happened to him.
Barkley is a class act and I'd take him.

5.) 10 Aug 2017 20:02:46
He's worse defensively than Fabregas. If he came here he would almost certainly play in the front 3 and we don't presently have a need there. No thanks.

6.) 10 Aug 2017 22:25:01
Both Barkley and Fabregas are offensive and creative players.It is not the point that every player has to look like Bakayoko (defensive non creative wood-any central back can emulate that).Both named players are typical central attacking midfielders(classic n 10).

Regularly coaches play one offensive (Lampard, Gerard, Fabregas, Barkley) and one defensive (Matic, Bakayoko, Carick, Simeone,) that's when they play with 2 CM'S. When they play with 3 CM's they use 1 defensive and 2 offensive CMs.

Only Mourinho loves to play with 2 defensive CMs and 1 offensive CM of 3.Oscar left Chelsea so Chelsea needs attacking midfielder.Mikel left we have Bakayoko, Matic left and we need CM (Drinkwater is closest we can get). It's actually so pointless to discuss this.

7.) 11 Aug 2017 01:37:39
maybe worth a punt i don't no he never stepped up that extra level we all expected hed be worth a look at around 20 million definitely.

8.) 11 Aug 2017 07:56:31
WTF are you talking about"he hasn't stepped up". He is 23. Hazard was the same age when signed for Chelsea. English international, regular starter in a club that always played first rank of football in England. If any young English player stepped up it's Ross Barkley.

No we’re losing and he’s taking our best forward off also keeping the same formation that is working Pedro will probs be off next who scored for Willian who’s been terrible for last month the man knows one way to play if it does happen he’s not a clue we’re terrible no confidence and I don’t see him running up and down touch line now clueless.
