    Club Statement: Coronavirus

    Season is going to be voided as it was in 1939 (and Blackpool were not given the title). It will be months before it could safely restart and even then there would be chaos if one team suffered an outbreak. Plus there's so many problems with contracts; rescheduling safety issues, e.g. do we...

    Match Thread Chelsea v Everton - Preview, Match Report and MotM Poll

    My wishful thinking …. writing was on the wall as soon as I saw Sigurdsson in the team - ten man Everton (again)

    Match Thread Chelsea v Everton - Preview, Match Report and MotM Poll

    Chelsea are a decent team. sitting in fourth place and playing at home. We choose to play Sigurdsson on the left and can anyone tell me how many crosses he's put in - I believe it ZERO. Can you tell me how many tackles, erm ZERO. How many successful passes, few. How many chances has he...

    Match Thread Chelsea v Everton - Preview, Match Report and MotM Poll

    Sigurdsson has done absolutely nothing; no runs, no passes, no tackles and strolls around - Incredible that he get's a game. Carlo hook him off and give us a chance

    2019/20 Leighton Baines

    No fee, just wages and hopefully Lucas stays injury free so he never has to play. Easy decision for me to offer a new 1 year contract and we can use the money in central midfield / right winger

    2019/20 Jordan Pickford

    I'm not 100% against your comment but suggesting and average keeper would get us into 5th place is stretching it - that would mean that Pickford has been below average this season; that's while he's still first choice for England. The British media love a new thing and this season it's Sheff...

    2019/20 Jordan Pickford

    I think Carlo will get more out of Pickford and it would be premature to get rid of him - I see Adrian make a rickets at Chelsea tonight and De Gea didn't look to hot on Sunday. Pope and Henderson aren't a patch on Pickford; don't have his passing ability (which is important) and I'm not sure...

    Someone is going to be given a spanking by the Blues; hope it's Chelsea. Goals from DCL/Richie and Davies

    Silky smooth - great composure and looks the read deal

    2019/20 Djibril Sidibe

    We always want more from our players but on here we can be overly critical - I don't remember the Utd full-backs pulling up trees today.

    2019/20 Djibril Sidibe

    I'd keep for £12m and pair with Kenny (fight it out for first choice). Yellow card was a joke

    2019/20 Richarlison

    I've watched that Fred tackle and his follow through is quite clearly deliberate and deserved a yellow card. I agree with earlier comments that he's targeted but has learnt not to get involved and to punish them with his ability. Having Richie and DCl together is making such a difference - if...

    2019/20 Carlo Ancelotti

    A man with three European Cup wins and numerous titles is leading our club, setting the standard, improving the players and showing passion - Fantastic

    2019/20 Tom Davies

    Yes, lost the ball in midfield in the second half but played some great forward passes in the second half. If Carlo can improve DCL, Sneids and even Siggi just think what he can do for Davies. I expect Davies to get the nod again at Chelsea - will come on leaps and bounds given the chance...

    2019/20 Jordan Pickford

    Thought he was unlucky with their goal; bounced just before him. Cracking double save at the end - thought he had a decent game as did the majority of th eteam with the exception of DCL who was outstanding.

    2019/20 Dominic Calvert-Lewin

    A terrific performance today and he's looking a really decent player. Every week I'm expecting DCL or Richie to score just like the old days with Lineker, Inchy and Sharpy and Big Bob. DCL is going to get better and better in the next couple of seasons - Things are on the up

    2019/20 Gylfi Sigurdsson

    Carlo squeezing a little more out of all our players including Siggi, not sure he'll be here next season.

    Good performance from the Blues today and can count ourselves unlucky with the VAR decision - kept going to the end. We're definitely getting better and closer as the weeks under Carlo pass.
