Unfortunately Chelsea tv is no more so i rarely get to see the youth games. I was also surprised at the ability and calmness of Anjorin, to be honest, a player I had not heard of before.

No Chelsea Tv anymore as we knew it, is a bloody disgrace,we must have saved/banked well over 300 million in transfer fees and the savings on players wages like Morata Higuain Bakayoko even Gary Cahill etc etc etc and with nothing spent on transfers .....shocking.

Unfortunately, I didn't see the game live (again, bloody losing it!) as I couldn't get out of bed. Probably due to doing some work around the house. Anyway, thanks for the comments and insight lads. It is all looking very exciting thanks to Frank and the team. The worry for me is Kepa though. For the money he cost, his command of his six yard box is poor. I can think of half a dozen or so goalkeepers I'd rather have than him.

Yeah he is a bit weak,but so far this season his distribution is a bit better.....doesn,t seem to boot it straight out of play like he did last year on loads of ocassions. Should have kept Marcin Bulka......as back up although Willy has done little wrong when used.

All on “The 5th Stand” app now which doesn’t cover anywhere near as much content as CTV did. Gutted [emoji22]

Painful,but we got there in the end. A truly forgettable 1st half apart from the one moment when Alonso actually passed the ball forward instead of back to Tomori. Second half was better,we were a bit quicker overall. Tammy done okay with what little service he had, thought Tomori yet again was excellent and Cho was very good when he came on,and both Jorhino and Willian pressed till the very end ..(Mason,s pressing led to the Pen).

Barkley....barely jogged into no man,s land and needs to play for another club where his every move wont come under scrutiny imho.

3pts and a clean sheet.....though Kepa,s reluctance to command his 6yd area nearly cost us from the header that hit the bar....(yep Og that was poor).

I thought Jorginho had a very good game. He covered every blade of grass a la Kante, basically because he had to, as he got little help from Barkley. It's strange but Barkley seems well off the pace. I noticed he was glancing at the bench around 50 mins. imploring Frank to take him off. He wasn't the only one. I was down on my knees in front of the TV shouting "Get him off and bring Kovacic on, pretty please". Jorginho's penalty was a delight.

Yeah Keith, I noticed when that corner came in that Kepa came, shat himself, then retreated to his line like a frightened rabbit. He's a bottle job and, unless Petr can instill some guts into his game, I reckon he'll be gone next season, probably back to the sanctuary of La Liga.

Forgot to mention, strange as it may seem considering the goals we've leaked, I think we're well set defensively. I like Tomori and Christensen, Zouma is getting better and Rudiger is just different class. Azpilicueta has got back to his solid self in the last couple of games and Reece James looks a great prospect. Alonso is limited so, the quicker Emerson gets back, the better.

I was checking out the new advert for Paddy Power staring Jose Mourinho (he has a future in films) when I came across this:

 

 

Might have been posted before many moons ago. It made me laugh.

Lampard is doing an Ajax at the moment with the Youngsters. 

Very impressive win in a tricky game. Future looks bright. 

Fans must be loving it at the mo. 

Well this one is. Still couldn't kick myself out of bed at 2 a.m. to watch it though, but I would have been tempted to if it had been on TV rather than chancing some dodgy stream.

 

I've said before and I still say that I don't want the transfer ban lifting in January.

Shame on you BM, I thought I was the only lazy <deleted> on this thread.

The thing that struck me about the lads coming through from our Academy is, they can all play football and have pace and acceleration. The exception pace wise is Billy Gilmour, from what little I've seen of him though, but he's still very young and will get stronger. It was nice to see Reece James putting in an old fashioned slide tackle or two though. For this eventuality, we have Jody and the succession of Academy coaches to thank.

The game itself was a very good win, in a cauldron of a stadium against a quick and skillful outfit. The youngsters would have grown up and learnt a lot from this experience.

I'm with you there.

 

Got up to watch us vs Zagreb. Spent ages trying to find a free livestream. Failed. Went back to bed. Couldn't sleep thinking about the game. Suddenly remembered i had Mobdro. Out of bed again to watch on Mobdro feeling annoyed  that with a sleepy head i hadn't thought of that earlier. Missed big chunk of the game. Watching on my phone most unsatisfactory. Wish Truevisions had the CL like in previous  seasons.
