  • Its a close debate Good post but you haven't addressed the defending from set pieces and corners especially. Its a significant factor also. I don't understand how Rudiger has become a dodgy player. In his previous full season he was a true...
  • My understanding is that a vast swath of evidence was time barred because UEFA failed to submit an application in time for the evidence to be admissible. How this happened is the question I want answered. Shame on UEFA.

    Chelsea haven't made any additional signings after Ziyech and Werner just yet so we should all reserve judgement for a while. Personally I don't they need Havertz, especially if they give Willian another two years. They have plenty up front and...

    This is the closest I can find to a source and it really amounts to nothing. No mention of Abramovich negotiating at all. https://www.football.london/chelsea-fc/transfer-news/chelsea-jan-oblak-transfer-news-18677186 All I could add is that Kepa...
  • It was 211 goals from midfield.

    I totally agree with you. I would go further and say that if you don't feel the pain of a defeat you don't know where you have to come back from to be winners next time. I only fully recovered from Chelsea losing the 1972 League Cup final to...

    I suspect office fit out will unfortunately be hit hard. There appears to be a move towards working from home. I drive a round the City of London and the place is deserted at the moment. Twitter have already said they aren't going back and others...

    They have been closing the construction trades training colleges for years if not decades. The carpenters I use are just not proper carpenters and cannot be relied upon. I've had enough and am getting out of the industry. Quality has dropped...

    I work in roofing and cladding and we are getting involved with replacement cladding jobs. (Post Grenfell etc) We priced two of them last year and one of them was a very large project for us, £4.5m. In the end we turned it down because of a lack...

    Who is going to build build build? The construction industry is on its knees. Social distancing has reduced production by 20%. Companies are giving staff pay cuts and there is a massive skills shortage. These are all issues that must be resolved...
  • They haven't conceded a goal in open play since the restart.
  • Surely Utd cant beat Chelsea 4 times in a season. Frank has changed things since the restart and the defence is tighter. They haven't yet conceded from open play and Kante seems to have got his better CDM place back. Thought both teams looked...

    Wash your mouth out. Wilder didn't have transfer ban and they're in free fall now.

    I just love how this is happening on Lampards watch and a transfer ban. Klopp will get it but if Chelsea get CL football, Lampard would be a shout for manager of the season. I just think he is doing a great job under very difficult circumstances...
  • Those games are in the middle of winter and they would have picked up injuries in the first half of the season. The current situation means they have been resting for a couple of months and are raring to go. Traore came on the other day and...
