Gents, I missed out on getting the Anniversary shirt earlier in the season. Anyone see it for sale online anywhere?

See small and XXL but not large, would even try XL. If anyone knows anythere selling, can you let me know, please and thanks.

I’m after the 97-98 CWC cup shirt myself but they’ve run out of my size at the megastore so unfortunately got to wait. That’s my favourite ever Chelsea kit.

Found that here: shorturl. at/ jnqDP without the Autoglass sponsor.

Also, check out a website called 3Retro, they have some up there too.

4.) 25 May 2020 16:18:21
Cheers fella just has a look at the one on 3 retro it’s exact same so it’s on order 👍🏻.

Just one for the group.

Previously, the forum got excited about Piatek and obviously he went to Milan.

Now, rumours have him linked with other clubs.

Just want to know why people haven't mentioned him when talking about another striker?


1.) 16 Jan 2020 12:49:57
He'd be expensive, and he's been off the boil this season - in a generally poor Milan team.

I watched them in the Coppa Italia last night, took his goal well but at other times looked short of confidence and wanted far too long on the ball / too many touches.

It's such a poor league that I'm guessing you'd need to see someone playing consistently well, and performing at a consistent high level in Europe, to warrant splashing a large amount of cash.

2.) 16 Jan 2020 13:54:58
Granted that's true J, but he was on fire when people in here were adamant we must get him.

I would have thought, now he's available, the same people would be looking to want to have us sign him.

3.) 16 Jan 2020 23:29:01
Fickle thing, being a football supporter.

Reading posts about spending big money got me thinking something.

How many of us actually remember Chelsea before Mr Abramovich bought the club?


1.) 03 Jan 2020 15:27:13
I certainly do. I used to go to the bridge with my dad and brother in the early 90s up until the now (not so much now as I live abroad) my whole family are Chelsea supports. my cousin actually coaches the children (not sure what age group but around 8 or 9 i think.

2.) 03 Jan 2020 15:27:25
Certainly have been good times dihanio. It’s why, at the end of the day we should trust the club.

3.) 03 Jan 2020 15:31:01
I’m actually against Chelsea spending money now, just don’t want to see it wasted like previous years with Baka, Drinkwater etc.

4.) 03 Jan 2020 15:51:45
Fans will support how they like Tom and don’t HAVE to listen to you.

5.) 03 Jan 2020 15:59:39
That’s correct 06111981 and likewise. That’s why it’s called a banter site.

It’s all about opinions!

6.) 03 Jan 2020 16:15:58
Think you need to learn the meaning of banter, you take everything far to seriously on here. Have you not had any in a very long time?

7.) 03 Jan 2020 16:37:33
Haven’t got the time for such things!

What name or names you going to use next week?

8.) 03 Jan 2020 17:22:23
I don’t know yet I’ll have a think 🤔 i’m sure I’ll think of something. Meanwhile you should think of something to stop being so miserable pal.

9.) 03 Jan 2020 20:30:48
As I’ve said before, I’m never miserable “pal” except when we lose and thankfully that’s not happened to often over the last 15 years or so!

10.) 05 Jan 2020 06:54:30
I hate to hear us say we wasted money on players. Let's be honest the players people are mentioning are all gambles weather you buy hazard or barkley who knows if they would workout or not. It could be down to our system that doesn't work for them or personal reasons (home sick, culture)

Some signing come off and some don't it doesn't mean the club are settling for second best or fifth best if you listen to people on here. You can't spend beyond your means anymore. So why would we pay over the odds for players.

I personally wouldn't buy Sancho, zaha, baily I would give hudson odoi the time,
I wouldn't buy ake or koulibly I would give tomori the time.
Not chilwill I would give that young LB the time.

I would settle for a period of time with the young lads that are chelsea bread.

{Ed001's Note - is that not the point though? That Chelsea should have done that a while ago, instead of buying the likes of Barkley that were clearly second rate signings before they were signed. Chelsea have such a good youth system that the only players bought should be top tier players, who fill gaps in the team or clearly improve on the ones already there, such as Kante. The likes of Barkley were just wasted money, on a player with a known drink and attitude problem, when you already had better options such as RLC in your squad.}

11.) 05 Jan 2020 09:27:30
Ed001 I completely agree with you. And rlc is one of my favourite players as I have said before I would love to see a midfield of
Rlc mount

Then with a front three of

Pulisic odoi

Never liked barkley but the club took a gamble on a player with premier league experience and it hasn't paid off.

But I saw hazard as a £30 + million gamble aswell but that one did pay off.

{Ed001's Note - Hazard was a top tier gamble though. That's the kind of gamble you have to take to win things.}

Talk of Sarri being sacked and replaced by Lampard has to be bull, right?


1.) 15 May 2019 18:39:23
I'd like to think so but it wouldn't surprise me if it were true. Sarri has been mistreated by a lot of our fan base all season long. The constant boo's at everything he does, the pathetic chants and even going at Jorginho because he came with Sarri despite him being one of our better players this season. You'd think we finished mid table with everything that's been talked about with him and Chelsea. He achieved what was asked of him and more so to sack him would be ridiculous, but if i was him personally i wouldn't want to manage at the club anymore and i don't think Chelsea would stand in his way. The idea of Lampard being our manager doesn't fill me with confidence at all, they'd be a better feel around the club especially with the fans but to hire such an inexperienced manager will only end badly for me.

2.) 15 May 2019 19:03:18
What a disaster. Lampard a club legend but hardly got the experience, got into play offs on final day and could be on way out playoffs tonight. It’s a heart of head rumour. Ridiculous,

3.) 15 May 2019 19:42:39
If the rumours to sack Sarri turn to fruition then it will go lengths into proving why we are a joke of a club for managers. It would be an embarrassment to sack somebody who finishes 3rd and ahead of prodigal son - Poch.

I don't buy into the stupid rumours. But it is clear that some of our fans have mistreated Sarri. Not sure what some of them want.

4.) 15 May 2019 20:32:20
Shak, I have defended Sarri throughout the season even though I didn’t want him as our manager.

I also think he has probably achieved what the club asked him to achieve.

BUT, he hasn’t helped himself with his stubbornness and rigid tactics. Some sections of fans at matches and online have made their anger very clear and in my view it’s been over the top but people are entitled to express there view, even though I find some of the comments disgusting.

I think the notion of Lamps as our manager is to soon and I would prefer Sarri to be given more time.

5.) 15 May 2019 21:31:01
I think the club would probably like to keep him, but the fans' consistent booing isn't helping I guess.

I hope the match going fans start supporting Sarri again. While I want Lampard tot eventually be our coach, it's too soon for him right now. Let him learn and grow at Derby.

6.) 15 May 2019 22:11:12
Hope one day it will be Mr nice and Mrs nasty in charge, lamps and JT.

7.) 15 May 2019 22:14:52
Your a well respected poster Tom, I respect your posts. Rightfully you always get behind the team regardless of the situation. Your right Sarri Sarri was stubborn and Rigid but I think near the end he was doing what we all wanted with his selections. He definitely deserves a 2nd season. He will turn the fans opinions around. no doubt.

8.) 15 May 2019 23:13:39
I hope so Shak.

9.) 16 May 2019 08:04:57
I'm sorry gents but I can't see him turning it around with the match going supporters. He has made no effort at all to build any sort of relationship with the supporters. Just as an example, we go up to Leicester on Sunday and he didn't even bother to come over to us, unlike the players.

It now looks as though he is too stubborn to try and build that relationship. If he tried it could help but he won't.

10.) 16 May 2019 09:59:55
and why do u want the manager to go up to the fans?

thats a load of BS . Sarri has got us playing some good football. He has helped develop the youth at Chelsea. SLowly but steadily we are, as a team improving.

Its the job of the fans to support their team . do that as fans, don't ask the mamager to come wave hands . honestly the atmosphere at the stadium has been poor. we should be the voice that shold drive our team up with confidence . Do the job of a Fan . a suppoter.

11.) 16 May 2019 10:20:24
Sorry dareyk but that's far too simplistic. As a manager you have to take the match going supporters with you. It's all well and good having internet fans who loved how his Napoli team played last season but this year the football has been absolutely turgid. He got found out early in the season and can't set the team up in an alternative way.

I'm not quite sure that he has developed the youth either but we can agree to disagree on that one. After all, Loftus-Cheek isn't 'youth' anymore and was playing in the World Cup last year. If you mean CHO, he had to be dragged kicking and screaming into giving him a chance.

The job of supporters at the match is to support the team. It's not their job to support a manager. It's also not 'waving hands' it's about a manager showing some appreciation to the supporters for the cost and effort of travelling up and down the country every other week to support his team. I've clocked up over a thousand games going to support Chelsea at home, away and abroad so with the greatest of respect I don't need you to tell me how to support the club.

12.) 16 May 2019 11:03:42
You are an ardent supporter of Chelsea . i haven't had the chance to visit SB but i support with all my heart.

I would not hold it against Sarri if he doesn't show any appreciation for the fans as long as he does good on the pitch with the team. I do agree that he has been rigid at times but that is cause of the players at his disposal . a longer time with the team training and the right players and we can see more to changes implemented when things don't go right . he has done well to show the team that we can win a football game with a more fluent style of play.

You could agree to disagree and that's fine. I am in support of Sarri and what he has done for the club and the players. RLC CHO RB even EH . i feel we have an identity now which we were missing at the time of Conte and the 2nd coming of Jose.

do u agree that the atmosphere at the game should be better and more supportive or the team, irrespective of the fact that the manager appreciates the supporters?

13.) 16 May 2019 11:19:09
Yes dareryk, I do agree with you that the atmosphere at Stamford Bridge should be better. This isn't just about Sarri though. We have had problems with the atmosphere for a few years now and it's down to a number of issues unfortunately. Part of it is the style of play and performance of the team. We have had this at times under all of Mourinho, Conte and now Sarri. It's a chicken and egg thing. The supporters have to get the team up and the team have to give the supporters something to cheer about. Both haven't been good enough at doing their job this season. I'm hoping that with a few months off everyone can re-charge their batteries as the atmosphere around the ground has not been at all healthy this season. Sarri hasn't helped that as he has come across as a very stubborn and grumpy figure.



28 Jan 2019 09:33:26
I have to laugh.

People in here picking apart a 3 nil win with a team that started with 8 changes from. Thursday, a midfield 3 that never played together and a striker getting used to a new team. All while playing against a team we knew would sit on their own 18 yard line.

Does every single aspect of a one off game have to be analyzed or can we not just enjoy a clean sheet win with out second string and youth getting minutes in the legs?


1.) 28 Jan 2019 16:33:30
I was at the game and I have to say I’m happy with the win, the last 10 minutes we looked like scoring a handful however we were poor and boring. The fans around me agreed we never looke to go forward only sideways or backwards. I love Ampadu and think he’s a great talent but I was happy when he came off tbh because he was slowing down every attack and passing backwards constantly. I know it’s possession but against Sheffield Wednesday we should look to score more goals and play better quicker football.

2.) 28 Jan 2019 21:05:44
It was rather abject, no doubt we will see improvements otherwise i would be worried. I expect the build up play to be a lot faster but of course we had no Jorginho, Kante, Hazard and Luiz so its not a concern. Job done anyway.

3.) 28 Jan 2019 21:07:39
Cfc17 spot on mate.

Jovic needs a strike partner for him to be affective. Wouldn't suit Chelseas one up top system.

Took DDG almost 2 years to "get better".

Lads, the reaction from some fans is a bit over the top.

We all knew this season was going to be tough. We got off to a great start and peopl seem to have forgotten that it should have been tougher. We're at a point in the season where we're having a dip, and it shows that we need to invest in the squad, but it has to be the right players.

Being reactionary and saying all of X, Y, Z have to go and A, B, C will definitely make us brilliant. Nobody knows how a player will be before they play so I suggest sitting back and enjoying the ride. If this was next season, with a couple of windows down, then it'd be time to start questioning things properly.

That's my point, Emil, nobody should need a list to relax.

For the next 12 weeks or so, it makes no difference who we're interested in cos they can't affect the team until next season. It's an unhealthy obsession with transfers.

Is it really that hard to get through the rest of the season without needing to know about transfers?

I mean, there's a lot of football to be played. Can we not just enjoy that without the hassle of who we might be linked with. That'll still be the same in the summer.
