    Kasper - Chelsea and Roma. SSN

    Kasper has been great for us, but it’ll take a bit of getting used to for Chelsea fans having had Courtois and Cech in his prime for over a decade. Two keepers who command their box and don’t stand next to the Kings Road watching free kicks fly in😄

    Flying out on Monday morning to Austria I understand.

    New training ground announced

    Interesting that you reference them being coaches when we were in League 1 and describing them as muck. I believe they were also coaching when we won the Premier League and made the Quarter Finals of the Champions League.

    Thorgan Hazard

    That’s fair enough, I just think that supporters rarely factor in the problems with players barely getting a chance to play. I recall Nigel Pearson saying when he returned from Hull that you can’t just collect players. It doesn’t work. You get unhappy players knocking on your door every 5 minutes and a difficult atmosphere in training. One of the first things Mourinho did when he joined Chelsea was to cut the squad down for that very reason. When supporters are clamouring for signings during the window, this never seems to get factored in.

    Thorgan Hazard

    good luck keeping that lot happy with playing time. We already have far too many players imo

    To answer your question, Geoff Peters, who works for Talksport and is well connected at Leicester City, has made it clear on several occasions that the players and non-Puel backroom staff absolutely hate him. If true, it’s hard to see Puel making it to October to be honest with you.

    Welcome Sebastian. We’ve never had supporters who switch allegiance toward us because of a shared nationality of a particular player, so it’s great to have you along.

    Post Match - England 1 - Croatia 2 (AET)

    I’m sorry we got beat, but I’m totally pissed off that we have to play an utterly meaningless 3rd/4th place game. Absolute nonsense. Let em get home and lick their wounds.

    If this is true, I’d be very surprised if it’s not Brighton he’s signing for. They appear to have made all the running on this one.

    Riyad finally gone

    This is a really good point. No one was getting near £50 million last summer. Yes it’s less than he’s worth, but more than we could have been mugged off for.

    Riyad finally gone

    Given us 4 and a half years of magnificent memories, was here longer than Kante and probably more than Maguire. I’ve loved watching him play, but...I’m glad it’s over. Refusing to play for your football team when you’re on a handsome contract so to do, and then not turning up to train for 10 days is unacceptable in my book.

    Keith Weller, Frank Worthington?

    Politics Thread (encompassing Brexit) - 21 June 2017 onwards

    I think Brexit will happen. Though I didn’t vote for it, I was genuinely hoping for a deal that would enable us to thrive economically. I’m worried that in the light of the carnage that has ensued, we’re going to end up with a shocking deal.

    Does she look identical to Christian Fuchs then?
