Well Zlatan wasn't wrong was he? Terry was the biggest baby last night and somehow he defends his and his team mates actions. (And people want him back in the England team!!)Well that was totally deserved.
You two obviously have season tickets at Chelsea and watch these players every week?Had the same reaction. I'd bite someone's hand off for Luis and Zouma at Arsenal.
If you're expecting to have world class players in every position in your reserves then you may be asking just a little too much. There's not a club in the world who have ever had that.You two obviously have season tickets at Chelsea and watch these players every week?
Zouma is young, he has plenty of potential but he's got mistakes in him. Luis is a decent left back...not great though and that's the point I'm getting at....We can certainly do better.
You're missing the point. But since you're unable to understand what people tell you, do your best to follow my instructions:Am I right in thinking this is the first time ever in world football history that a group of players have surrounded a referee?
It's absolutely hilarious how much we're hated.
Ye...it's almost like all these gooners and scousers just can't handle clubs far more successful than their own. Poor souls, last night meant more to them than anything their clubs have done this season.You aren't quite as hated as us yet.
This season in all comps:
Diego Costa (£32m) - 17 goals, 3 assists.
Giroud (£12m) - 13 goals, 3 assists & he was out injured for 3 months.
Kane (£0m) - 16 goals, 3 assists (just in the Premier League)
Costa hasn't scored or assisted anything this season in the CL.
There are obviously similarities but directly comparable? One incident is an entire team badgering and pressuring a referee into getting an opposition player sent off. The other is less than a handful of players questioning what looks to be a decision to give a penalty or a free kick. Can you recall that ever resulting in a referee changing his mind?How is it not comparable? It's insane how much attention this incident is getting. Ref bothering is a recurring theme within the game, not something unique to one club. Anyone who suggests otherwise is being hugely disingenuous.

Is Carragher a hypocrite? Of course he is, he's a footballer. And it isn't unique to one club, I never suggested it was. But Chelsea and Mourinho teams are renowned for it. And last night was the worst case I can remember seeing since the old United/Keane days.
They look dead on their feet to me and I can't help but think that squad mismanagement has played a part in that. While there's a lot to be said for a settled line-up, it obviously becomes harder and harder to execute the high-tempo pressing game that Mourinho favours once tiredness starts to creep in, and tiredness has been allowed to creep in because he's rotated the squad so seldomly - across the four competitions Chelsea have been involved in just 13 outfield players have started 10 games or more.Chelsea have slowed down a hell of a lot this year, though. Fabregas was a passenger yesterday, and Costa's goals have dried up. What's happened there? On Sky they were talking about Mourinho not liking to rotate too much, is that backed up by facts? Are they just tired?
