Thank you.

I agree about Fabregas not playing to a point. Sometimes Conte took a more defence minded option and played Matic. Kante has allowed Fabregas to more freedom than he may have had last season. To be fair the whole squad have been superb this season. Fbregas has also moved to second behind Giggs for the number of assists in a career.

It still irks me a tad that certain players have been outstanding this year, compared to last. To win the League is way abve what I wished for at the start of the season. A win at Wembley would be the icing on the cake. We also have a great chance to get more than 90 points.

Whatever you think of Mourinho he deserves some credit for winning one trophy and getting to the Europa Cup final.

Come has built/rebuilt the team spirit and ethic, that's been the big difference

I still think Mourinho is dependant on the cheque book

Debatable, given how many trophies he has won.


Kante has been the biggest difference imo.

Kante is pure class.

Cant say i know too much about Alvaro Morata Al
but hes goal scoring record speaks for it self
one of the few pundits who i listen too Pat Niven saying Chelsea supporters will be punching the air in delight
hopefully the Chelsea supporters will be punching the air a few more times this season when Morata starts banging the goals in
just a young man at 24 too

cheers

just posted about him on the other thread Archie. A prolific scorer who didnt start often and most of his goals came as sub. I cant wait to see how he fits in.

A lot of paper talk about Chelsea wanting a new keeper for next season Al
theyve got a young lad named Jamal Blackman loaned to Wycombe and hes been getting rave reviews for hes performances
would like to see Chelsea get the lad involved with the first team next season
play him in the two lesser cups and let him kick on from there
great prospect by all accounts

cheers


I mentioned Jamal a year or two ago Archie. He is a big lad 6`6 and comes from Croydon. He was on loan at Boro when Boro lost 13-14 on penalties against Liverpool. He has been third choice behind Courtois and Cech and as you say, is having a good season at Wycombe. Hopefully he will be our reserve keeper next season if nothing else, from memory he is 23 or 24
Jamal loaned out again Al
this time to Sheff Utd for the season
Chelsea got to make a decision on the lad sooner or later Al
they cant keep loaning the lad out can they

cheers

Worried about discipline, Al?
Almost grabbed a point with 9 but defensively a bit ragged to say the least and down to 9 speaks for itself

TBH I am more worried about the lack of signings Geordie. I feel we have let too many decent youngsters go, either sold or on loan. Today we were poor, Cahill was reckless, and as I said at the time, deserved a red. What gets me though is we all know refs will continue to be as inconsistant as ever. Fabregas just lost it, inexcusable for such a seasoned pro to get not one but two stupid yellows.

First half, even with eleven men, Burnley ran us rugged. I have said before these long haul pre-season tours dont do players any good. Although I do see why clubs are enticed to go down that route. So here we have it, next week we are away to a decent Spurs team and we have two men missing before we even talk about injuries. A second loss would be a disaster for us.

We didnt get back in the game quick enough and Burnley were always up for a decent display after struggling away from home so much last season. I could argue we deserved a draw but in all honesty I cant.
