One of those weird Chelsea transfers where you just know it's no the manager making the choice.


He wanted Llorente last year. Maybe he wants to try a different approach when things aren’t going well.

But it’s still a weird transfer for Chelsea along with Drinkwater. Atleast you could say with Barkley that he has potential and under the right manager he could be decent.

Conte brought Llorente to Juventus so that wasn't too weird I guess.

Some of their recent signings have been a bit Steve Sidwell-esque.

In a row. Because absolutely no one else has done it. Ludicrous assertion. Even for the author in question.

Bob Paisley won the European Cup twice in a row.


Football only started in 1992.

Sorry. Thought it was obvious I was talking about the Champions league.

Surely not.

Bournemouth are such a tin pot side. They haven't invested in their squad at all, just a half decent starting eleven.

I hope they go down. West Ham have been linked with Harry Arter which I really hope doesn’t happen. Little banana split should have been sent off tonight as well.

Alan Shearer is such a prick, I can see why they didn't give the penalty, William jumped over the tackled but purposely left his foot in, surely this is the sort of play people have been crying out for the be taken out of the game but because it was made by the VAR they are all in a twist about it, the tossers.

Hearing them all moaning about VAR because Willian did the classic "leave leg trailing to win a penalty" trick and got caught :lol:

I really didn’t think that was a penalty at all. Strange they all thought it was obvious.
