Phil Neville is dumber than a bar of soap.
He talks a lot of something that rhymes with this too...
It's not gonna be Women's Power with him is it
Fascinating dissection of how Sarri's tactics at corners try and create space for Rudiger to score
Point taken RLC, not just the hat trick but the overall performance and commitment.
Start at Burnley? I hope so.
Interesting conundrum. First of all the squad aside from the forward position now has some real depth mainly through Sarris coaching in improving both RLC and Barkley. Hes also rejuvenated Pedro and Luiz and brought the best out of Hazard. The Jorginho signing was superb as was the shrewd loan deal for Kovacic. Secondly Sarri still wants improvement from the midfield in the defensive phase and clearly wasnt happy with the way the goal was conceded. Burnley will be a physical game and both Kante and Jorginho will be brought back. RLC could help with the goal scoring but I think hell be on the bench for Burnley.
Great result and proof that we are not a one man team by a long stretch. RLC and Ross Barkley will no doubt grab the headlines especially with another round of England games coming up.
Thoughts with those up in Leicester. Hasn't been that long since we lost Mathew Harding in similar circumstances.
Midfield absolutly superb today and Barkley is looking an absolute steal for £15m . Good to see Morata being proactive and how unlucky was Giroud not to score. Correct decision not to risk Hazard as he'd only have got kicked. Sarri has done very well in rotating this squad .
Excellent cup tie last night with Frank's Derby very unfortunate not to take it to penalties. Derby play a good high press, swift transition into attack and hes really brought the best out of a number of young players and old heads.Fo r us Cahill was very average and I cant see him forcing his way on to the bench never mind the first team, Christensen did nothing to suggest that he should be in the first team either. Emerson was ok.Febregas just hasnt the pace and I think this is his last season tbh. RLC played well out on the right using his tsrength and skill. It was a pity that Hudson-Odi couldnt get on the pitch but that was due to Sarri having to make subs to sort the defence out. Bournemouth next.
Yes it was a great cup tie. I saw Derby at West Brom a couple of weeks back and they played with the same speed and tenacity and thumped the Baggies 4-1. Frank has got them playing some good stuff in such a short time. The standing ovation he got at the end of last night's game was fantastic and well deserved.
Agree it's time for Cahill to move on, maybe the Championship ( a return to Villa with JT?). Fabs is slowing a bit but can still produce some game changing passes, maybe a slower league for him.
A decent win I suppose, lucky at times but we never really went into 2nd gear.
RLC had a decent game I think despite Spackman's negative ramblings, i think he wanted to be reporting on the Rangers game instead.
Hazard looked very unfit tonight.
I watched the Arsenal game later, Welbecks injury looked serious. Any news on what's happened?
Easily our worst game of the season and Bate were unexpectedly really fucking good at defending as a unit. Could have had a draw or better.
One point needed to win the group and a win on a bad night...I'll take it.
Did you know?
Slavisa Jokanovic was Claudio Ranieri's first signing as Chelsea manager in October 2000.
From the BBC.
What do you reckon mod , a good appointment? That Premier title with Leicester was amazing but I think he struggled in some of his other posts.
He's well respected at the Bridge tho, I wish him luck.
Yes a good appointment but mainly because it’s not Alladyce, Pardew or Moyes.
Very sad to see Slavisa sacked. He’s s fine manager and we were fantastic on the eye last season. He has a sting CV.
- Three league titles.
- Two domestic doubles.
- An invincible league season.
- Managed in the Champions League and Europa League.
- Won two championship promotions.
How young does Jose look on this?
Lots of articles out there today on the mighty Drogba hanging up his playing boots today.
Jeez that was limp. Luiz is an absolute waste of space.
Great result, for the Premiership as much as for Chelsea. As my Chelsea fan mate just texted, today was one of those rare occasions when the whole country wants Chelsea to win
Was hoping for a draw. Fair play to Hazard Chelsea on getting the three points. I think that Liverpool the sport of football was the winner today
Fk that racist cnt in your earlier post Badgers. No one wants scum like that in their support.
As for the result, it was superb, we kept our shape and every single player gave 100%, even Luiz.
I really liked the way that Pep spent time to congratulate all our players and staff, great guy, don't even think of writing City off yet all you Liverpool fans who have been cheering us on tonight.
Thats four instances of racist abuse in a week, Celtic player abused, Motherwell player v Hearts, the Spurs banana incident and now this, Four reasons to back Football Lads and Lasses against Fascism and start to push this atmosphere and behaviour on the backfoot.
As for the game City closed us down in the first half to the point where we couldnt get in their half .They overcommitted themselves and one superb ball from Luiz opened up an opportunity, our one and only and our one and only shot was a goal. Dont know what Sarri said at half time but we were a different side in the second half and dominated.
You can definitely sense a bit of cockiness from the racist shits who think they can get away with it under the toxic atmosphere that Brexit/Hostile Environment has caused.
Having said that I went to WBA v Villa on Friday with a friend who has never been to a match before as she was a bit concerned about racism. She loved it, despite the local rivalry and tension there was none of that crap anywhere.
Back to the football Azpi and Rudiger played superb as well as Luiz in defence. It has to be said how can you beat possibly the best club side in the world three days after losing to Wolverhampton.
Quintessential Chelsea this. Stuck in this cycle of great, meh, great, meh.
Tottenham in the semis is going to be a great duel. Second leg at the Bridge too.
Christian Pulisic: Chelsea sign Borussia Dortmund forward for £58m - Christian Pulisic: Chelsea sign Borussia Dortmund forward for £58m
...and then loan him straight back. Meantime we persist with Mean Machine Morata.
0-0 against the mighty Saints. Meantime we are paying £58m for strikers then loaning them out.
Yeah I'm a little bit pissed off
No disrespect to Saints btw
It was part of a deal , the loan ,made months ago .He's a winger with loads of potential probably one of the best players for his age. Both Pedro and William are hovering around the 30 tears old mark so he's an investment for the future.
I thought we were good tonight but couldnt unlock a very good defensive display , lacked a bit of luck imo.
