  1. Ha the **** is implicitly far worse than what I said, even the software is programmed to troll. So @£%"*(!!" +=%***** to the programmer!!! XXXX
  2. 100 per cent agree. And some **** somewhere has decided we've all agreed we can't blame it on injuries - don't be stupid, of course we can, it's as plain as the nose on your face! Oh and forget the trolling abuse, I'm a grown up who's off to bed after a good night at the pub, so I won't be listening! X

    Come on Leicester

    And some people say we've got problems. The difference is that we will play much better while many Newcastle fans don't believe their side will and there's plenty of them say they're as good as down because of that as there's too much damage to repair in January even if Ashley signs off on more spending. Very impressed with Leicester, even without Madders (imagine what he would've done to that Newcastle back line today), an object lesson in keeping the ball moving against 10 men.

    Soton vs Cherries

    Agree with all the above, for me it confirms our brand of football (with or without the Man City result), is a level above many in this division. When it goes wrong we can/will look awful and yes, dinosaurs could make targeted assaults on our players which sometimes might work, but win, lose or draw I know what I'd prefer to watch.
  5. Well played Tim Krul - without his performance this could have been a very damaging defeat rather than an off-day. And yes trolls, that is what it was - just an off day.
  6. You're still asleep - just a bad dream. We're actually winning 3-2
  7. Snoddy shows the way to get a yellow!
  8. First yellow card!!!! Talk about lenient
  9. Talk about cynical. Don't usually do retribution on but I hope someone gives something back to the culprit for Zimbo.
  10. Yep - Noble drivelling on about teaching us all about the Prem must be some obscure kind of Cockney Rhyming Slang about diving and hacking.
  11. Matt Jarvis I think - or as ifollow would put it M a tt Ja r v I s
  12. Goals? Have I missed something - wouldn't be surprised!!
  13. Commentary kicked in at 8pm, what's the betting someone booked it in as an 8pm KO. Mind that doesn't explain why it sounds like they've got hiccups. You getting the same effect on youtube Kick it Off?

    Have said before, had the early impression there's less goalmouth grappling with VAR, now I'm sure of it. Another less obvious effect is maybes that, with referees effectively under scrutiny now as well as the players, there does seem to be a levelling of the playing field around the pitch, not just in and around the penalty areas, in that 50-50s feel much more like they are just that, 50-50s. Not just for ourselves, I have been generally less angered by decisions seemingly being weighted the way of 'big clubs' than I was last time we were in the Prem. Not suggesting cheating in the past, just that pressure was easier to succumb to in the past. Early days I know, but I continue to believe there's more benefits than dis-benefits in using VAR. Btw I know VAR doesn't apply all around the pitch, I am talking about officials' mindsets, which they would likely not switch on and off according to where they are on the field.

    Chelsea Injuries

    Agree. We have injuries too, that’s football – but one difference is that it’s not us who will feel a need to make excuses for our club in advance and no-one would listen if we tried to (few paid much heed to our injuries ahead of the Newcastle demolition, many had their focus on Brucie and the Mags, as they did after the game too). However Daniel points out there are plenty inside the game who know about us now, including other clubs’ chief coaches. So it should be only the fans whose radar we come in under this season. But, and it’s the biggest but, that takes no account of the psychology of the people who actually kick the football and although they will be nervous, no-one can tell me that, even after the start they have had, the Chelsea players as a group will not expect to win, it’s that mind set which helps make top players. It’s also any group’s Achilles heel. There will likely be just one or two whose egos dictates they expect to go ahead then go on cruise control. We have the team to identify them and pounce and – as Kick it Off points out – no Hazard. 4-1 after going behind.

    Zimbo back in Training!

    Don't they do random testing any more?
  17. Oh yes! But I think VAR might notice someone tackling like a JCB.

    Well done Wes...

    Wes and Russ - class acts. Hope Canaries in Oz keep us up to pace with how things go with the Jets, as the time difference makes it easy for A-League news to slip under the radar.

    Jamal Lewis

    Can't recall where saw or heard it but pretty sure Daniel said it was a small knock then likely mostly cramp, coming off as a precaution against something more serious.
