Albanian national team's physio:

https://pbs.twimg.com/media/Bf0gjMPIYAEbhOQ.jpg:large
I'm quite sure I have read that she is presenter not physio
I've been reading some other forums and comments on articles, and I have been seeing a lot of very cocky Chelsea fans who seem certain that City will bottle it and certain that Mourinho will go unbeaten or close to unbeaten.

Let's go back, remember when we were 8 points adrift earlier last season? A couple years ago behind Manchester United? I don't mind being Five points adrift right now even if we do have a more difficult run in than Chelsea, it's the easy fixtures at the end of the season that often surprises.

Five points ahead of Manchester United, Five points behind Chelsea, this could go two ways really fast, *keep sitting back and watch the season unfold*

Kudos to Chelsea if they take the Title.

Top Class fans for giving Frank Lampard such a great reception.
I miss the place !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This Chelsea vs City game has been so dull!
CFC created bugger all. Bore draw.
+10
did you watch the 1st half
Chelsea players were fatigued
+1
I watched it all, the first half was even duller than the second.
Chelsea 3 shots, 1 corner, 8 touches in opposition box. Abject.
+4
the 1st half was end to end
our players fatigued, we had no one to change the game from the bench, that game was tactical for us it was important not to lose
+1
go watch hockey if you want non stop action, Chelsea is not here to cater to eye catching football every single match, you play football against City and your team more than any knows what happens

*cough 4-1, 1-5, 6-0
+8
I was just saying, as a neutral watching it was very lacking in quality, fluidity, attacking intent or entertainment.
I don't mind an interesting tactical battle that tight, important games often are, but this didn't even have that. Damp squib.
+8
how dare you say chelsea play a boring game andy!

without fabregas and some tired legs on the pitch I didn't expect anything but, even if it was at the bridge. Frankly even tactically I don't think they did great, not taking the midweek into account. But they got the result and are still 5 points clear. anyways, im off to watch some hockey!
+7
Lol yeah.
All part of the vendetta against them Probably..
+6
Hmmmm, this wasn't a tactical battle? we watching the same game? Both teams were set out to not concede/lose, you look at our lineup, it was a pure counter attacking lineup

Were you honestly expecting a game similar to our 5-3 encounter? Really? Did you forget that our near same XI (minus our two best players) played a full 120 minutes on Tuesday and just 5 days later faced a team who is fully rested and fit.

Perspective...

btw i don't give a rat's ass if he is calling Chelsea boring, its the lack of respect shown for two solid defensive performances (Chelsea as well as City). For you its all about the goals and your definition of a tactical match, w/e the fk that is.

go on...banter away
+4
Corr... Feisty one you are.
I didn't say it was about the goals at all, but I do like to see a side play with at least a modicum of attacking intent.
Chelsea didn't have a shot in the second half, and Jose did nothing tactical to alter that. He was content to draw, as you said.
I don't class getting your team to sit back as partaking in a tactical battle, anyone can do that.
The players disappointed, as I said I just felt it lacked individual quality and didn't excite me.
+6
oh shucks, well thats too bad then. btw don't forget to hand in your managerial resume since like you mentioned "anyone can do that"

I remember when Brendan Rodgers said that, worked well for him. Oh and as for your shots on target and entertainment value, don't worry, you'll get plenty of it if you decide to play football against City when they meet you in a few weeks

4-1, 1-5, 6-0

Entertainment'ed
+4
I was just watching the match to see further evidence of the 'campaign' everyone has against Chelsea.
+5
You either need to smoke a joint, or smoke less. Either way you're pretty fiesty, considering all I said was it was a dull game, particularly for the neutral.
And regarding the mourinho tactics masterclass we saw tonight, that's just the kinda performance he doesn't even regard as football from this century!
Just another mourinho puppet.

And yes, those 3 games you've mentioned twice now would have been more entertaining for those who watch football for that purpose, entertainment (which is everyone bar the fans of the team who got pasted.)
+5
Andy - Unfortunately Chelsea are not playing football to please neutral fans and especially a spurs fan.....Jose's goal is to win trophies at end of the season and not to please neutral fans and finish in mid table.

Both city and Chelsea are fighting for title are happy about the result since they both know what it takes to get results against big teams. .....its not anyones mistake that you were praying hard for Chelsea to lose and since that dint happen your pissed. Get well soon :)
+3
Someone's still sore from that beat down Spurs gave Chelsea
+10
baz.... Why do you think I was praying for Chelsea to lose and am pissed off because they didn't? The only game I give a crap about involving Chelsea is a certain Wembley fixture on March 1st.
I couldn't care less about the result, I was just sat at home watching the most hyped game of the season and found it thoroughly dull, it wasn't a good showpiece for the PL.
+5
someone still can get over the beating down Chelsea keeps giving liverpool :P Anyways good luck to pool for the CL games..ohh!! wait you know whats CL right??

Andy - my bad that I assumed that you were hoping for a chelsea defeat considering we are london rivals...no denying that it was a dull game, but it was dull for a reason.
+6
I don't see what's wrong with saying it was a dull game. I'm sure most people would agree. Nobody says it's Mourinho's job to entertain the neutrals. He does enough of that in his press conferences with the talk of some crazy campaign among other things. Chelsea set out not to lose today and given the situation, maybe that's an optimal decision. But still dull.
+7
"the most hyped game" there lies the problem, this game had draw written all over it yet it was hyped like mad, maybe if the FA had not banned Costa there might have been more spark but w/o our two best players and knackered squad Mourinho was always going for a more conservative approach.

Its all about perspective, for the causal fan that bought into the SKY hype or may not follow football that closely, this match was probably a let down, but to a fan who does appreciate the defensive side to a football match like myself might have found the game quite enjoyable.

And yes i'll admit i was a tad aggressive earlier, see you at Wembley ;)
+1
Personally, I dislike us to defend deep like that. But our defence has been conceding poor goals lately and our players were tired. I wouldnt call this a tactical masterclass but we avoided a bad result.

So yeah a boring game. Every team has those once in a while. There will be better games.
+2
Indeed, These top of the table clashes usually end up with little chances, so I wasn't that surprised.
Mourinho did the sensible thing by playing not to lose - but 3 shots all game is a bit extreme! Shame costa wasn't there, but he only has himself to blame for walking the thin line between aggressive and potentially dangerous.
But that's a different debate.

Can't get tickets for the final as I'm not a member 😞
But my sister does work for Chelsea TV so I could probably get one in the Chelsea end if I was desperate !
+3
Losing by one goal on aggregate in a cup tie is a beat down? Then conceding 5 goals against your rival is a ass whooping.

Though back to what the op said, I agree. Especially considering the talent that was on show for both sides. IE Hazard, Aguero, Willian, Navas. The draw suited Chelsea more.
+4
Oh beating at home in the PL game? *cough twice last season to kill the only hope of title for next decade...anyways I don't want to go further back.

Few dull games are worth for a top spot and title fight
+3
lol classy as usual
+5
Both of you stop now. Peruvianking, unless you want a warning I suggest you don't get involved.
Are we still debating whether Chelsea is boring or not? I thought it was a fact written in stone. I rather watch grass die instead of watching Chelsea play.
+7
Oh dear...

Guys, stop taking swipes at each other if you can't handle it personally. If it's too much, just 'report' the comment and we'll handle it, no need to get into the mix of things if your emotions get in the way.

Like this post if your team has scored more goals than Chelsea.
Like this post if Chelsea parked the bus and played like Stoke against your team.

Kgb, really?




really?
So, this is how the transfer window works eh?

Men that's hilarious but unfortunately true
That's Goal.com, right?
@Azeal: nope, its Guardian Football
SKY or BBC or ITV? which do you guys prefer for football coverage and why?
+1
BBC. As to why, I find ITV commentators too emotional. I'd rather watch those commentators who can keep their emotions completely in check. Almost monotonous is my preference. BBC comes closest to that imo.
+1
Sky my reasons are in the video below

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6lge8wx-9Vk
+1
Sky, because the have the one and only Gary Neville.
+1
BBC:MOTD
+5
Gary Nevile
BBC has the best highlights but awful punditry

Sky has decent highlights and the best punditry

Sky it is!
+5
^pretty much.

Bbc punditry is terrible
+1
I like Gary and MOTD on BBC, The highlights and interviews are great although they often have some terrible guest pundits e.g. Dion Dublin, Robbie Savage, Danny Mills.

Love G.Nev and King Henry on Sky althought Carra can sometimes be a bit annoying. Not a big fan of Souness, either.

ITV drive me mad with Adrian "knows sod all about football and has the personality of a damp cloth" Chiles.

Prefer Sky for coverage/analysis and BBC for highlights.
+1
I love BBC
Al Jazeera !
+2
@Deffyduck you will be glad to hear Adrian Chiles got sacked

MOTD is unsurpassable for me, it's just the tradition of waiting for it every year
+1
Sky for the commentary, BBC MOTD for the highlights
The wisdom that Gary Neville brought into his punditry made me seriously cry inside and kinda begs that he would replace Blatter.

He is a true professional.
sky has the best punditry neville caraghar henry etc however bbc is commercial free so thats a HUUUUUUUUGE plus for me
