Salah and de Bruyn 2 of the best players in the world, talent that doesn't come along very often. Our scouting system and management spotted them, they wanted to come and they both joined.
What went wrong? Did they expect to play all the time because they knew how good they were? Did the management at the time not see how good they were? Did we get rid of exceptional talent because of someone's ego or the ability of someone to recognise such talent or both. They don't appear to have had any problems at other clubs.
Maybe they upset Vera the cleaner by not raising the toilet seat when having a pee, so we got rid.

What went wrong? One word, Jose: hseems to have no patience and no desire to invest in players, particularly those that need an arm round them. We are seeing his wonderful man management skills at United now and it is baffling. You also had Lukaku who he let go and has now paid £75M for. I know he won you some titles and his record is right up there but seeing Jose close up isn't filling me with confidence.

2.) 18 Mar 2018 07:57:17
His ego has certainly escalated in recent years and his bizarre after match interviews were getting embarrassing for us although he was suffering the 'transfer' syndrome that seems to beset us every year and has had an impact on Conte. At the moment I would not have too much confidence in the Alexis Sanchez bit of business, 'can' win you a game but can equally be completely missing in others.

3.) 18 Mar 2018 11:45:24
Not just Jose - we lost Chalobah last summer - we need to play our youngsters.

4.) 18 Mar 2018 16:25:05
When you put very high short term goals/ expectations on the coaches we hire, they tend to play the players that are experienced that will give them quick results- which will mean less or no time for young players (which results in negative development for young players) .

5.) 18 Mar 2018 19:35:56
Such a fine line here, it’s not a case of just playing youngsters when they may have talent but lack big game experience, I think the loaning of players works as long as once they have that game time we give them a chance, KDB was superb in Germany salah was great in Italy yet we never got them back to chelsea, Lukaku also showed at Everton quality, but he I think wanted assurances of playing time. With all the players we khave loaned there would always be ones who slip away, loftus looks good in spells but injured a lot, mushonda can’t get game at Celtic, Baker has hardy played, yet fans call for them to be at chelsea?

How the hell do we set up against Barcelona. In midfield Kante and? .


{Ed0333's Note - Kantes clone and then Kantes clones clone and fabregas.

1.) 14 Feb 2018 23:05:22
Well the thought of drinkwater and bako in the team against Barcelona doesn't fill u with confidence. Only Luiz in midfield, If he doesn't wander forward too much, might be the answer.

2.) 15 Feb 2018 03:56:28
It's going to be Baka and fab with Kante. I really hope it's not Bakayoko as he's been awful this season from the first game. Really hope he proves me wrong but it's not looking like it at all

Zappacosta Azpi Christensen Rudiger Alonso
Drinkwater Kante Fabregas
Hazard Giroud.

3.) 15 Feb 2018 05:56:28
3-4-3is the way to go. In 3-5-2 we tend to be ultra defensive. The gap between midfield line and forward line increase in this formation. To make this work one of the midfielder should join the attack frequently. However barring Fabregas (who is slower these days) non others stem confidence in attacking capabilities.

Why not go on attacking mode with 3-4-3 with Giroud as target man and hazard, Willian to support him.

But I think Conte will again go for 3-5-2 with defensive setup as he does in big matches.

4.) 15 Feb 2018 08:19:40
We cannot play Fabregas as they will play right through us, WBA were doing a good job on Monday. Luiz in the middle with Kante and I would give Drinkwater a chance as he cannot be any worse than Bayakoko who on any measure of form should not be playing and this is the wrong game to play him in the hope he magically transforms into the superstar we hoped?

5.) 15 Feb 2018 13:59:49
Got to be luiz in midfield and 3-4-3 otherwise its going to be another man city game where we get totally out played we was lucky to come out of that game only losing 1-0. No way can we sit back and hope to catch Barcelona on the break, they will cut through us like a hot knife through butter. We have got to attack specially at the bridge.

6.) 15 Feb 2018 14:54:28
Totally agree Blinky. Best defence we can put together but also a very attacking set up and hope to score at their place. We haven't enough pace (or confidence) to try and catch them on the break so we will have to keep pressing even if we score otherwise they will slice us to pieces.

7.) 15 Feb 2018 22:29:37
Luiz still out injured at the moment.



21 Oct 2017 10:09:44
Tom, these youngsters need to understand what it was like supporting Chelsea in the decades before Roman. Some great memories but not very often.
The muddy pitches, the freak Boxing Day results when everyone had been on the booze on Christmas Day. Bobby Tambling, Charlie Cooke, Peter Osgood, chopper Harris the list goes on. The cats display in front of the Kop, David Webbs winner against Leeds in the replay, chopper Harris trying to cut George Best in half when George scored that great goal in the mud. Now the list of great times and memories is endless because of continual success, but we always supported the team, when we were a long way from being a top team.
Liverpool under Shanks and Paisley were the top team, and their older supporters must have endless amount of happy memories, the same with united under sir Matt with Best, law and Charlton. Top teams in England and Europe, and we could only dream of such times, until Roman came along.


1.) 21 Oct 2017 12:18:56
Well said Sid, I have supported Chelsea 50 plus years and until Roman came we flirted with success but you supported them through good and bad including relegations, more than one I hasten to add. So for us these are great times and we realise we won't win the league every year but 5 in what 14 years is brilliant. The double, the champions league. I have seen all this, my brother went everywhere with Chelsea from the late 60s to 2003 when he died of cancer, so never saw us win the league.
So to all those out there who are recent supporters enjoy it when we win, but still support us when we aren't doing so well. Under Roman we will always come back.
Remain positive come on Chels.

2.) 21 Oct 2017 14:57:38
i suppose its just a case of been so used to sucess an when we go from strolling a league to flopping once again d season after its hard to wonder why but i definetly laid back a bit myself towards criticism.

3.) 21 Oct 2017 15:06:43
Two excellent posts which would resonate with TomB. Generally however, our generation do not support Chelsea through rose tinted glasses where we are upset every time someone criticises players or a performance, we have been used to the ups and downs and missed opportunities. Roman has propelled us into the upper echelons of the Premiership and Europe and along with it our expectations but even he and his management make mistakes and this forum is for opinions from supporters, none the club will listen to, and it would be an odd forum if we all agreed. We will always support our lifetime club but will always feel we know where they are going wrong (or right) and express as much.

4.) 21 Oct 2017 15:44:36
I remember standing on that ridiculously large terracing at Charlton to see Clive Walker keep us in the old 2nd division.

5.) 21 Oct 2017 15:56:12
It’s just baffling how we always seem to slump terribly after winning a title the last two times. Both times it’s partially down to a lack of signings. Now I don’t doubt the board tried their hardest this year to get everyone Conte wanted but it’s still incredibly frustrating that when we seem to building up steam and possibly being able to compete with the like of Barca/ Real/ Bayern we take 2 steps back.

6.) 21 Oct 2017 17:12:13
Now home having watched a fantastic comeback by the boys in blue.
We are lacking confidence at the back and at times looked very shaky but we found a way to win. That’s why we’re CHAMPIONS.
We will all have different opinions about the performance today and that’s what makes this site worth reading.
Just for the record I thought Willian played well when he came on and I’m so pleased for Batman.
Guys, be as critical as you like about whatever you like but PLEASE offer your idea of a practical solution as well as the criticism!
We can all now have a good weekend.

7.) 21 Oct 2017 17:16:17
MissDW- That Valley had some steep terraces as well! Clive Walker was very under rated, his goals to games for a winger was very good.

He is such a quick thinker, and what I have seen of him m can see a pass like Fabregas.

Young and lost his way. Still has bags of potential and has the ability to be a very very good player. Needs to stay injury free and work hard and listen.

I am sure he will be written off as "a waste of money " after a few games, by some people on this site.

Love banter sites and the comments. I bet if he had signed for spuds, there would have been lots of comments about how glad we are that he didn't sign for us, bad injury record, overrated, dodged a bullet. Does make me laugh.

It's the season after winning the league, so by a new founded tradition we take a break from Europe next year and win the league again.

It's the midfield where the big decision has to be made. Not sure I would start with fabregas but there again what are the alternatives. I assume Luiz won't be fit, unless he is bold and puts Ampadu alongside Kante, but can't see that happening.
