so big Sam can play football, very interesting to see west ham try and play an open game vs hull. i feel they would get hammered by the top half teams but they will probably pick up more points than usual vs the bottom half given they have some players with goals in them!
They will probably play route 1 stuff against the big boys.
If Chelsea continues in this current form it might be quite the one-"Little Horse Race" for the title, Chelsea are the only top side to have not dropped points let-alone done it multiple times like all the others, and with Costa and Fabregas on close to unprecedented form it's probably going to be impossible to shake them.

Still early days though, I guess that's the good thing about the situation.
+1
but they wont continue this form. its not that often that a team starts doing this well and maintains it throughout the season. Like you pointed out, its still early and alot can happen from now till the end. Will be interesting to see how this season plays out on all fronts.
2010/2011 chelsea started the season by scoring for fun. then there form really dipped around October and they never really got back into good form.

but i still think they are favorites this season and will win it.
+2
People need to realize that we are in September and only four games have been played. Chelsea have been very good over this period and are definitely favorites in my book but there is still a long way to go. This is the Premier League we are talking about here. Anything can happen. Anything.
+1
The thing that can cause them a problem is an injury to a key player like Hazard, Costa, or Fabregas.
+3
Its still way to early to in the season to predict things but every season their is a team that's doing astonishingly well in their opening games.
Lucas - Thats not a rocket science mate..same thing can actually cause problem to all other teams as well.

Injury to Yaya and look how city are not at their best...same goes with united with loads of Injuries..Arsenal have there own issues...you guys are struggling without sturridge and god knows what will happen if sterling joins the list.

All that matters is quality depth in the squad to keep-up the form all season...This season will not be as close as last season by any means and I think its going to be a 2 horse race after Dec.
i feel every season one top team explodes off the block but rarely does that team ever last 38 weeks and win the league. season isnt even close to being close to being close to being close to being worth evaluating who will finish top 4 talk less of who will come up champions.

Has anyone read the articles about Rio Ferdinands book? Seems like he's insulted half of England based on what I've seen.
yea i have and as much as i didn't like David Moyes, some of his comments are just odd and i don't see the point of bringing it up now. Like him and the team's obsession over f*****g chips. He mentions it so much that i couldn't do much but laugh. He does give a decent insight on how misguided and clueless the team were. at the end of the day, the problem was not solely on the shoulders of david moyes like Rio makes it sounds. The players were not performing even after moyes left.

hey i guess whatever helps in selling copies of his book i suppose
So who's going down?

Hard to bet against QPR at the moment but they seem like the type of squad that may get results against fellow bottom dwellers. Newcastle have not looked very good.
A few games too early mate.
Burnley, qpr, newcastle
burnley, westbrom, crystal palace
I am going down on my.....knees to say a prayer for ya'll to catch back the Little Horse Chelsea.
newcastle, QPR and CP
I doubt Newcaslte will go down, they have to much quality to be relegated. If they sack Pardew, bring in a good manager and buy some new CBs in Janaury then they'll be fine. For me the teams that I think are going down are:

1.QPR, where are the goals going to come from? No Remy. Their defense has been horrendous and CM looks so freaking lazy.

2.Burnley, one goal scored in 4 games. Team looks toothless in attack.

3. Palace or West Brom. One of them will be headed out, West Brom might not get a lot of wins but they do manage to get lots of draws which at least give them a point but is it going to be enough? Palace, Warnock is no Pulis but the team can battle no doubt but can they survive? I don't know.

When you combined the best commentator and the most historic match, this is the outcome.

Whatever if they win 6-0 . man utd will finish in mid table

people dont want to realize it isn;t about the club name or history its about generation , period of time

not rival
Newcaslte / charlton fan

biggie beil

Good weekend dudes


and please report , why dream footy isn;t work at the moment?!!
+1
lmao. this has to be the dumbest post i have seen in a while. in this generation, united is still one of the biggest clubs. It still houses some of the best footballers around. Teams of all sizes face slumps and rebuilding periods. I guess real madrid must be irrelevant as well considering they have lost all their games so far.

Where was this post when city lost to stoke? Why not a liverpool related one? Enjoy regulation and championship football next season
+2
Eh, it's his opinion. We may finish mid table, we may not. The post doesn't really give much reason for explaining either way.
+1
LOL Booba being Booba :D
+5
guess the magpies are to relegate this season.
+1
Skool , i agree about relegation actually make me happy , to sort out the team from beginig and build new squad


Gohanof , dude , i was football coach for junior , and football player for more than 7 years , plus played in bristol rovers FC before for short notice .... and iam only 24

............you only watch tv , and call me dump ????
Booba..is back..lol!!
+2
:))))))))))))) thnx mate,was really busy , hope you guys fine ,
oh congrats. im sorry that we all can't concentrate 100% on football apart from playing just for fun. im sure like most people here, there was a point in my life i was heading in the direction of playing the sport more seriously but decided it was not for me. Your post regardless is still idiotic and pointless. u did nothing to disprove my assertions but instead try to do this ridiculous dick measuring contest. also where did i call you dump? i just pointed out your post was nonsensical and that u did not post this for other teams during similar circumstances. get of your high horse there buddy

Ps. hate to be the bearer of bad news but at 24, ur not going anywhere with ur footballing career. you make it sound as if u have a bright future in the field but u really do not. As a player u should be playing at a higher level at that age. now if u aim to be a coach, that's a different story but even then u are still lacking behind in that department as well.
I think Booba might be the person behind EvilKagawa.
@Yaldho - Isn't it Demon Di Maria now?
Booba, I played division 1 for 5 years, played for Marconi at a professional level before being injured badly, coached at a representative level for a few years, all before I hit about 22 I think and I STILL have no idea how any of what you said makes sense or has any sort of relevance to United's chances in the league...
+1
I love lamp
can i join this brag about what you did before you were 24 thread?
Anyone see pellegrini pulling a mourinho at the post match? Hahaha i love it...he's normally pretty quiet, but he was pretty pissed. I think he had a case with wilsheres handball
I was disappointed in pellegrini to be honest, the ref made bad calls all around, we could have easily gone down to 10 or 9 men. It was a cracking match both teams could have won, pellegrini should have just kept a lid on it and go about his business as usual, there will always be bad calls just accept it and move on.
+2
Yes there were decisions to make for both teams, but what a game it was... Always exciting playing city, and now in the past 4 games, its been 1-1,6-3,3-0,2-2, aggregate score of 9-9 lol
I was laughing when I saw Pellegrini lose his cool, never see that happen but how can anyone keep their cool after that amazing game. Game of the week for me!
In case you missed it

Was surprised at Pellegrini...
After all the "Park the bus comments" aimed at Chelsea we can officially say the handbrake has been lifted :D
We are still parking the bus, but in the opponents half
Loll dw we'll put on the hand brake at the Etihad next sunday ;)
Lol nah i predict we'll play the same as last season at the etihad but hopefully finishing will be much better this time round...hopefully aguero nd toure are fit...should be a cracker
^ I Can't wait, Hopefully the Gas won't Costa us.
All Chelsea needed was a consistent finisher and now that they have won we can really see that attacking football at its best.
looking forward to the game next week. going to be interesting to see the two strongest teams in the league face off. I may be alone in this but i believe city will either win or it will end in a draw
I haven't had a chance to see Chelsea's full games yet but I see they are scoring a lot of goals. Is Mourinho finally playing attacking football or effective counter attacking?
They're not mutually exclusive. :) You can score goals from both situations (See Bayern under Heynckes and for most of Pep's debut season, Ancelotti's Real Madrid etc) But yes, we're employing a high block nowadays, if that's what you were asking, so we are trying to play "attacking football". But it's not like even last season our only game plan was counter attacking.
The bus parking myth started to explode when we played against Barcelona at Nou Camp and got drew 2-2
Ivanovic is practically a striker now, lol. Chelsea has the most perfect team co-ordination atm. Fabregas in charge of feeding the team, Matic the well rounded midfield guardian. Shurrle and Oscar always on the move, Hazard beating defenders causing hazard on the left while Costa hustles and finishes no matter what!
+2
I dont know where this myth that chelsea dont play attacking football comes from. Yes they park the bus when they need to but most of last season they were playing fast attacking football. Last season it was more about power and speed. This season Fabrigas has added that extra flair and also it helps to have a striker who puts the ball in the back of the net every time he gets a sniff.
+4
To be fair Chelsea did park the bus in Europe that year but last year it was different. Chelsea are playing some great football this season though.
I am proud of Chelsea's bus all day any day :)...Come at me bro lol
Yaldho - well said mate...we park the bus only when we need to and destroy the opponents when we want to!!
Myth???? Its not a myth and we all now it. Chelsea were parking the bus for the last 2 seasons. Maybe not on every game, but on numerous occasions. We were all talking about it last year and now its a myth?

@LumpOfCelery tnx for answering the question to some degree.

@Barca121 tnx for clarifying
+1
@kinglucas, why u crazy bro
I'd park a bus if it won me the Champions League.

And there's a difference between parking the bus and playing well-organized, counterattacking football (example, Chelsea vs Liverpool last season at Anfield). I think that's what is meant by "myth"- that Chelsea have been doing the latter for a long time.
@Kinglucas aside from Cl semi vs atletico and our 2-0 victory against you when else have we "parked the bus" last season. And the previous season when we won the europa we didnt do it once.thats 3 games out of two seasons we played defensivly to try and get a important result.
They look more creative in build ups..counter attacks are very effective. Only need 2-3 players and they're in regardless of how many you have back...i think you'll want to avoid a quick transition end to end game with Chelsea..
Lol the main difference between Chelsea this year and last year is that there is a striker[s] who can finish the chances created. I don't think Torres would have scored any of those chances Costa had, let alone be in the right position to take the chances!
Even last year Chelsea were second in the most chances created!!

But yea there will be, like last season, 2 or 3 games when Chelsea will park the bus. Anyway Mourinho is a manager who has balance between attack and defense. He knows when to attack and when to defend.

Most people don't know this, but Mourinhos "boring-park-the-bus" system smashed the record for most goals scored in a single season in La Liga with Madrid lol...

I think it was 124 goals in a season
Lump of celery's comments really make sense and he touched every aspect.but to say,they haven't parked majority of games out side home are really a false statement.to be fair to Jose,he tried to play attacking football in the beginning of last season,later he realized he didn't have a team to perform that level,turned to his usual football.

But this year,he is trying to play some possessions based attacking football and he has got some real quality players.it's good yo see Chelsea playing some fluid football,but to say,Chelsea didn't park last season is really rubbish things to say.
Yea no body can deny Chelsea didn't park. I think there were probs about 3 games last season where a bus was used. Liverpool, United and Atletico away. I think chelsea will do the same this season in a few games, especially in tough europe games against the likes of barca, madeid, bayern if they match up
Lmao the "parking the bus" jokes aimed at Chelsea alone are a little too harsh imo.

They did it 2-3 times and people act like they do it in every single game. I wonder if they even watch Chelsea play.

And regarding their bus parking performances in the semis and the final of the CL three years ago, as joeymac said, I wouldn't mind parking the bus if it gave us a champions league title lol
Chelsea's been the most entertaining team to watch this season so far imo.
Cesc is out of this world
Costa is yet another successful La Liga offensive player to fair well in the EPL. for long the argument is that (insert player here) won't put up nearly the same numbers in the epl but it doesn't seem to be the case.
Costa, Mata, Silva, Michu....
Saldado and arguably Robhino are the only people who was crushed by the change of leagues.

Can anyone explain why this is?
+2
Robinho is a different story, his ego was way bigger then his own talent sadly. When he was at City their was no question the guy had talent but his commitment to the team was very poor and at times his contribution to the team as well. His first season he did a wonderful job, wouldn't even compare him to Soldado but after a few injuries the following season in 2009-10 season and he fell down the pecking order he wanted out because he was afraid if he didn't play regularly he wouldn't make the world cup team so went on loan to Santos and never came back. Robinho wasn't committed enough to fight at City for his position and wanted to be top dog but you have to earn it first which is why he left.

Robinho was never crushed by the changes in the league but he just had a different attitude then others.
@ Micky: You forgot to mention Torres, when he was at Liverpool.
Aguero
+1
i purposely left out players because i know there's more and further support my point that it's not just a random group of individuals.

@Moe there's a reason why I said arguably, even though you are completely right one may argue his fall in the pecking order was the physicality of the league catching up and causing injuries. making it hard for him to regain his form.
It seems like if you can play well in the Liga you can play well in the BPL, no problem. But the BPL is a stronger more defensive league.
All the players listed have is speed and offensive reaction time. Is that all that's needed to cope?
All this means is that spanish players are better than English players which is not rocket science loll
+4
Rajmahal nailed it....its not about people coming from La-liga or other league doing well. Its about Spanish players and their attitude towards the game. if you observe all the success has come from player who have adopted Spanish style.
Eng and south american players are not very stable...a little success and they are on top of the world doing crazy things..one reason why they dont last very long at top level with exceptions.
well when you think about it the English league is often praised for it's physicality more than anything else. That just tells you most English players excel in athleticism more than technique. Technique is the only thing that beats athleticism in a footballers requirements
Lmao at Rajmahal thinking Spanish players are better than English players.
Okay there buddy, wake me up when Spain produces superstars like Andy Carroll, Ashley Young, Heskey or Downing.

Poor bastards have to deal with average players like Xavi, Iniesta, etc.
LOL badge , i was all ready with my popcorn's , but then 2nd line of your comment struck .
