You guys talk about Liverpool fans being cocky last year and they deserve this. Well if thats the case then what do we deserve? Because this place is starting to get pretty cocky itself. It's one thing to have a chuckle at another teams failures. Its entirely another story to scoff at every mistake and say they deserve failure.

Lets keep the focus on our own team here guys. Our forum is starting to become unapproachable with all of the laughing going on at other teams. Its not the case all the time, but lets take it easy on other teams in here please.
Yeah, I agree on that...But, I think our guys have been cocky without using any offensive words or breaking the rule.

Anyways..I'm out now :D
Its a different type of cocky. Liverpool fans when they win stick it in your face as much as they can. When liverpool were winning ladt year, all my liverpool friends were rubbing it in everyone. Where as we are just being complaining we didnt win vs city and utd.
+5
The most precious 3 pts for Spurs!
+1
Defending is easy; right Rodger?
+6
Attacking is not easy without Suarez; right Rodger?
+7
"any team who spent £100 million on trasfers should be fighting for the title" right rodger?
+5
Suarez is the first man to win Player of the Year and Manager of the Year in EPL history.
+5
LOL!! let the title aside...I have my doubts about them even catching Southampton. Lallana , Lambert and Lovren getting trolled :)

Moed8 - Superlike for that :P
In reply to Moe66 on Chelsea right now vs Inter of 2010- I agree that overall, this chelsea team have more technically skilled players than that inter team, but the system Inter played was quite different and not every player we have is an upgrade to those guys.

First off, they played more fundamentally sound defense, with a Thiago motta-Cambiasso midfield pairing being alot more defensively sound than Matic-Fabregas for obvious reasons. Then they had Eto'o in the role Hazard is playing now which meant a much more ruthless chance converting attack.From Fabregas/Thiago Motta and Hazard/Eto'o you can see the obvious lower level of technical abilities in the Inter team and a higher level of Defense and goal scoring respectively.

Mourinho set up the team to play to their strengths and brought out the best in them, which is where his genius comes in. Chelsea is being set-up to play a more technically sound footy considering the pieces of the puzzle, which again is brilliant managing by Mourinho.

Lets go head to head ;)

Julio Ceasar V Courtois - Toughh one, Maybe Courtois
Lucio V Cahill - Lucio
Samuel V Terry - Tie
Zanetti V Azpilicueta - Gotta give the legend Zanetti
Maicon V Ivanovic - Another tough one, Tie
Cambiasso V Matic - Toughhh, but Matic (> technically)
Thiago Motta V Fabregas - Defense V Technical skills
Pandev V Willian - More goal scoring V Skill+ stamina
Sneidjer V Oscar - Sneidjer (More consistent for now)
Eto'o V Hazard - Goal scoring V Dribbling + skills
Milito V Costa - Costa for now, too clinical

Conclusion - Technical ability -> Chelsea
Chance creation -> Chelsea
Defense -> Inter
Chance conversion -> Inter

I have no doubt that this chelsea team has more potential though and can do great things as well,even greater than that inter team, but we'd have to see how they fair against the really big boys in UCL to see where we are right now. Got love for both :) .

P.s- sorry for the essay, its just a very interesting discussion topic
One of the things most impressive about that Inter side imo was the role Mourinho had given to Eto'o, he worked his butt off for that side, chasing up and down, and pressuring high up the pitch (final of UCL) as well as scoring goals (against us), Willian reminds me the most of that, minus the goals of course.

That team's defense was nothing short of outstanding, it was a trademark resilient and disciplined Mourinho defense. I don't think any (even our defense in the Carvalho Terry days) came close to that defense.

And Milito was absolutely world class that year, i think he won FIFA world player of the year that season? Both his goals vs Bayern were incredible.

Our current side has some aspects of that Inter team but it also has it's own unique talents (like you said with the technical and dribbling abilities), it's also much younger than that Inter side, so it has potential as well. This Chelsea side still has its flaws and is no where as complete as that Inter side was (or that Real side of 2012), but i feel with time it may become another one of Mourinho's best sides in his illustrious career (far too early to say that right now).

Porto 2003
Chelsea 2005
Inter 2010
Real 2012
Chelsea 2015?
+1
Well said Bluff, well said. I think the age difference is a very very important factor like you just pointed out.

And Milito vs Costa. Man, I really dont know why I gave Costa that, maybe because of how much I missed a clinical striker at Chelsea, but Milito was absolutely ridiculous for Inter.
What i meant by saying more skilled and upgraded players is that our team had players who are very good, but yet to hit their peak.

Sure, Fabregas and our back four (minus Azpi) are at their peak or past it.

But the others are going to get better. Matic, hazard, oscar and even Costa are going to become better, much better. Inter had no equivalent of Hazard, a player with a Ballon D'or waiting for him.

But I see a mental strength and togetherness in this team that reminded me of Inter. Madrid had some very fragile players...which showed in that penalty shootout against Munich.

+1
Yeah, so the 'potential' is crazy thats definitely agreed on. I disagree on some other things but its cool. We are on the same side :p
saw this by a liverpool fan
'I will make sure I put on my Liverpool jersey on judgement day so that God will know I have passed through hell already'.
+11
Hahahahahahaha!!!

Lmfao! I died reading that!
+1
Well, this is a lesson for liverpool fans actually. In life, you stay humble in everything that you are involved in. Anything can happen at any time. I remember them being arrogant, cocky and rude last season. I feel sorry for them though, but at the same time feel that they deserve this
+2
RIP HITS1

Died laughing at pool = a peaceful and happy death

We should all take a moment and laugh at Liverpool. Hahaha

I'm lovin this season so far.

Sexy football by Chelsea


+10
Wow... How did we get a draw vs you guys again?
+2
^ Phil Dowd happened.
+12
Cmon man after you scored you sat back and held on
I remember this, I was actually getting angry because we were playing our way out from there. We should have just cleared the ball. West Brom got the ball and it could have cost us a clean sheet.

Nevertheless, this looks pretty sleek.
Same thing happened with the game against City. We were a goal up and they had 10men, yet we sat back and didn't go for the kill. Some of our instinct from last season still creeps up from time to time. Last season we had no choice but to do that since we couldn't break down teams and we had no goal scorer.
lol @ Clay: Sitting back and holding on is punishable by terrible refereeing?

I missed the game yesterday, and watched it back after home. This team is starting to resemble Jose's Real from 2012. Wow.
+4
Even when we sat back, Matic was winning the ball back in Utd half all the time, but we couldn't get the final pass right. It was really an average game from us overall, (with Utd playing well enough in the 1st half to get a point) Dowd was just the icing on the cake.
@Liquidator

I dont see real. I see a more skilled Inter that won thw treble. Costa is a more complete milito. Oscar plays the Snijider role, and we have an upgrade at every other position, bar maybe CB where Lucio was immense.

come on man u are at top, 15 pts above us, have not lost a single game this season so far, still moaning?? what more do you want?? lol
+3
Perfection would be nice :P But seriously the team still has aspects to improve on despite how good they've been.
Hypnotizing.
two more points would've been nice
