Its the small club mentality some of ours fans still have. They won't hear the praise about us, they'll just hear the stuff about the other teams:ph34r:

 

Could be, I suppose it depends what time you tuned in - obviously it's quite a big story how poor Chelsea's recent form is vs how they're expected to do, so they're going to spend a lot of time talking about it, but they did spend a lot of time talking about us earlier this morning. TalkSport are definitely fairer than Sky in that respect

Anyone else listening to Radio Chelsea aka TalkShite this morning?  Are we top of the League or did I dream it last night?  Even heard one reference to Arsenal being a 'Top 6' Club.

Tuning into TalkSport and then getting annoyed about what you hear is like wandering up to the most obnoxious wind-up merchant you know in the local pub for a chat, then getting upset when he winds you up.

No hard feelings for Chilwell at all, but I did enjoy how angry he got talking about getting up the pitch and then passing it backwards lol

To be fair to sky a lot of the "old guard" are not going to change their ways. I genuinely sensed a bias in Tyler's commentary last night. But the likes of Neville, Carragher, Keane, Richards and Redknapp seem to be on the turn when it comes to talking us up.

The thing is we are still years behind where Man U, Chelsea, Liverpool etc are in terms of worldwide attraction. Popular news sells, its that simple. 

Pulling figures out of the air and using talksport as an example. If Chelsea have 1000000 and we have half that, talking about Chelsea is going to attract more listeners, its fact and something we need to get used to. Big if, but if we carry on the way we are in a few years we could be talked about just as much. The more we improve, the more we attract, the bigger we become, the more popular we become

 

'If' we win the league again in the not so distant future, the narrative will always be little old Leicester did it again. If we do it again after that, it won't be little old Leicester anymore, it'll be the new breed and so on.

I know this is all good fun and that - but I can't help but remember when Saints were top and some on here had a go at their fans for being excited. Our fanbase is exactly the same lol

I’m starting to crush on this girl BTW.  I can't think of another ref or lino where the only thing I think about is, how many they get right.

We'd been saying it for a good 6months before he left.

He just needs confidence the right manager, which Lampard is not.

“Oooooh, they play some wonderful football ..... Leicester” - Peter Drury’s commentary when Maddison struck the bar last night.

 

What a fabulous performance.  The energy the players put into that game, in grim conditions, was astounding.

 

I can not single out one player - they were all immense.

Weren’t they top after like 7 games... and have they win the PL recently. Anyway there is a long way to go but 38 points from 19 is something to be a little excited about

What are you talking about? Many of us were saying that for much much longer than that. He and Ndidi (Ndidi is much better now) were mainly responsible for our sideway and backward passes and our inability to get the ball upfield when pressed. They, together with Maddison (when he was playing deeper; now much improved just behind Vardy) regularly disrupted the flow and stifled our plays. We were found out by opposition teams - key is just to press our left side and back four and we would go pass pass pass backward.

 

Chelsea fans are now just finding this out ...

Yeah and we're top after 19 games (likely not for long). Still a helluva long way from ending there! How is that so much different?

There’s a very strong argument for the best ref and the best lino we’ve had this season  both being female.

I don't even think it's an argument. They've been far and away the best officials we've had not just this season, but for a long time.

We have form, as in won it before and finished in top six last season. Besides I wasn’t one of those claiming Southampton fans shouldn’t get excited, but yes 19 games in is way more games in than Southampton it is half of season. So quite different than a handful, when you have won it before people start to believe it can happen again. And it could, not saying it will, but it is far more likely than Southampton

'Whats happened to Ben Chilwell?'. Nothing mate, he's always played like that.
