His legs are gone but he's got the footballers brain and he's always in the right place at the right time. That to me is far more important than pace and youthfulness.

JT has never had any pace to lose... His problems at the moment are lack of regular playing time and too many off field distractions which, for once, have been a factor.
If he can get fit in the off season, then I expect him to come back strong next season and along with Cahill, be part of one of the best central defence partnerships.

Thats what I think as the umpteenth counter-attacking forward leaves him for dead.......

Terry can defend in his own box, anywhere else he's a liability.

Plus how many other "top" defenders throw their bodies around like JT? The man is a soldier on the field. It'll be a long time before we get another player like him.

After last years dominance of Europe it was sad to exit the champions league at the group stage, but hey here we are in the next best thing. So roll on to the final lets hope for another blue day, and to all you jealous haters keep doing what your good at

Chelsea Chelsea its gonna be blue day
well its because most of them either dont have a big squad or because they had other priorities and you have rested plays in other comps.
it seems the league cup should just be the cowards cup as no one really takes that seriously.


its not jealously people just dont like a team using blood money to become successful in a snap.

This is why I could never support a big club. Every year, the minimum expectation will be to win everything in sight (PL, both domestic cups, CL).

There are too many good teams, both domestically and in Europe, for that to become a reality most seasons.

It may sound tragic, but I actually like the notion that as a West Ham fan our expectation is firstly to survive and maybe, just maybe we can have a nice little cup run or grab a Europa campaign once in a while.

It just seems sad to me that 'only' finishing 2nd or 'only' being one of the Top 8 sides in Europe is seen as 'poor'.

Dude what are you on?

Semi-final F.A cup

Semi- final Capital One cup

Champions league spot (fingers crossed)

Final (at worse) Europa League

How many teams in Europe would kill for that list,

Arsenal
Spurs
Liverpool
Real Madrid
A.C Milan
Porto

to name but a few, we are a European powerhouse wether you or anyone else likes it or thinks it.

Chelsea have been for at least the last 10 seasons been one of the major teams in WORLD football,

3 Premiership titles

4 F.A cups

Champions League finalist

1 or 2 Carling cups

Oh did I mention Champions league WINNERS

Plus the 1 or 6 Semi-finals

Yes my man, us Chelsea fans are very very happy and content

Chelsea Chelsea

as a Charlton fan i used to enjoy it too but i suppose it comes down to the expectations for each set of fans. Chelsea fans would surely of been expecting to compete for the title.
