Good to see Costa getting a break and rest in after his injury during this 1 week break. We were clearly FATIGUED in many of the recent games hence our shitty play all around.

Hopefully when we come back playing at Stamford Bridge vs Stoke, we'll come back stronger than ever with a clean bill of fitness and health!!
Has Hazard ever won a player of the month ?
Nope, The last CFC player to win it before Costa last year, was Mata in Oct 2012 iirc. I may be wrong. Also, No CFC manager has won manager of the month since Ancelotti in March 2011.
FA Player of the month award is more like Player that you think would be s**t but somehow surprises you with a few goals award.
Lol someone found the secret requirement for that
This seems to be a pretty neat way of evaluating how the game ebbed and flowed, during the 90 mins, and which team was in the ascendancy

The caveat is that a 'chance' needs to be a very well defined for this to work consistently.
took kane 18 seconds to score on his international debut. cant make it up
You just did. xD
80 (78 to be precise) actually.
+5
lucky goal, keeper flapped at the cross, out of position for the weak header right at the center of the goal.
+1
it may have been the keeper's fault but the way Kane lost his marker is still top notch. You can't help but say the guy is looking like the real deal, and he isn't reliant on pace so he won't have to worry about burnout.
+4
Agree with BluFF. He lost his marker and made his own luck. Made it look too easy.
He's a puzzling stricker because he has no stand out abilities(pace, strength, dribbling....) but his positioning is top notch.
Ghan12 let's play our game bro. I'm ready.
@ success I will be ready in 2 hours bro
Aight
Some stuff about Benitez' time at Chelsea has come out recently. JT tried to appeal to Rafa to squash the stuff in the past when he was at Liverpool.



Apparently it didn't work. Glad that fool is long gone! He should never have been chosen but past is past I guess.
+5
- Really is a stain on our history to have been led by the fat waiter.. Apart from loosing Frank, it was probably the worst I ever felt as a chelsea man.
He is probably my favourite liverpool manager I ever watched. Should never have been chelsea manager though..
+3
I appreciate your saying so Sergio. I imagine most Liverpool fans have a much different opinion on Benitez. Every manager's run comes to an end eventually. Itwas poetic justice for us that he was replaced by Jose. :P
Benitez was clearly a Liverpool Favourite , won the CL and his constant jabs at SAF . we loved him . He won y'all a trophy , yeah he wasn't liked by anyone neither did he like Chelsea i guess , but he kinda helped you save that season, Says much about the quality of the manager.
I'm not so sure how much of the season he really saved. He did worse than RdM was doing in the league. I understand why the club appointed him, but by not apologising to the fans he once blatantly insulted, he only invited the hate.
the feeling of those chicks when Zayn Malik left One Direction



is like when Juan Mata left Chelsea

I hear you too want a taste of Anderson? ^^
So i've got a fun thread idea. Reply to this comment with a statement that looks perfectly reasonable now, but 5-10 years ago would look absolutely ridiculous. I'll start:

I think Rob Green is a perfectly competent replacement for Petr Cech.
+1
Torres is best striker is the world and worth 50M transfer fee ;p

Also Wenger will spend 40M+ euros on one player not once but twice :D
Olivier Giroud is are main striker.
Lampard playing well for Man City. ;_;
+3
Rafa Benitez managed Chelsea to european triumph
+1
Fabregas is a Blue!
Bendtner is better than Heskey.
+1
Chelsea61 is a mod ;)

Cheeky
+2
Arsenal won the Premier League. LMAO
Chelsea plays in Europe. LMAO

btw - Right way to make your statement was to write - Arsenal is not in title race. Now it is reasonable, but 5-10 years ago, that would not be true =)
Gerrard will do everything to win the league for Liverpool.
Lionel Messi will be better than Ronaldinho.
@Alerkarmo - We've qualified for Europe every season, since 96/97. Hardly unreasonable ;)
+3
Casillas is the best gk in the world
Brazil to win the World cup at home in 2014!
+1
LumpOfCelery, sorry, didn't know =) but when Russian bill took over?
@Alekarmo: Around the same time Wenger started expressing his love for young boys.
7 years after the start of that season. :)
Glen Johnson is the best RB ever
+1
We need to find a replacement for John Terry :)
Idk why guys, maybe its me, byt I always thought that The fact that stamford bridge has a small pitch. Its difficult to play football against teams that sit back. Cuz their wing backs will literally cover the spaces (opposition wingers running in behind). If the pitch is big, there's kinda still have space in behind to exploit...

am I who only thinks thats the case lol
@ Aaron, are u available to play online?
i saw some stat, stamford bridge is about the same size as camp nou.. i couldn't believe it. seems camp nou is about 6x bigger (just the pitch) than other grounds but maybe it's the camera positioning and barca's tactical shape.
Yup, Stamford Bridge, Nou Camp and the San Siro all have near identical pitch sizes, give or take a few meters. Incredible isn't it?

Like SIF said, Its just a combination of stadium size, closeness of the stands and nets, camera angles and tactical shape that deceives the eye.
+1
In theory a meter or 2 shouldn't make much of a difference but when skilled dribblers like messi, neymar or even your hazard play a couple of meters extra to defend becomes much more difficult because these players need inches to get past their markers.

English stadiums are much smaller than Spanish or Italian stadiums so the pitch definitely looks smaller. It has its pros and cons. In England the spectators are in your face so it's quite intimidating to hear an opposing fan screaming obscenities a few yards from you.
