    Oh dear. Do I detect that they're trying to rip off the centenary kit made by Umbro? Dark blue and gold goes well. Not overly keen on lighter shades of blue.

    Your youngster Lucas Piazón had a great game in the youth cup semi. He took his goal well after a strong run from Feruz.

    Yep, been quite a journey so far, particularly the West Ham and Forest games. Done very well considering they're mainly first years or younger but a lot of talented players in the team.

    Good game tonight.

    If we had the right manager, the amount of players we could develop and make into first team players would be staggering! Half the team could be from the youth like Barca, obv they had it lucky with a good 4-5 world class ones but still! Piazon, Feruz, Kakuta, McEachran, Hutchinson. There's 4-5 players that look/can be really good for us in the future. McEachran deserves a chance next season, he's like Thiago for Barca, but difference is, Thiago gets a good amount of game time and McEachran doesn't, I really hope the next manager uses him!

    I thought it was absolutely outrageous what the club did with that shirt signing.

    For those not aware, Torres was at the Megastore to sign "Torres 9" shirts, and specifically only sign these, and not just only these, only brand new ones of these. You bought your new shirt, and got a ticket to go in the queue to see Torres. I'd happily be corrected by someone who actually went, but that's the impression I got from the website when they announced the event. I take it also that they didn't yet have the new kit on sale as it's only on pre-order online.

    So the club have made about £40 off each person who queued up, for a shirt that is going to be out of date in a month's time. Even if they could get the new shirt, the club are still commercialising even further the relationship between players and fans. Gone are the days when they would turn up for a couple of hours to sign whatever you brought along. Now it's either a Chelsea book (or whatever it was previously) or specific new shirts.

    Guess I won't be meeting any more players any time soon.

    We shouldn't have sent Mceachran to Swansea, he sits on the bench just as much as at Chelsea

    At least he makes the bench. We should loan him next season,
    Also gael kakuta has been in fine form for dijon, he should get games for chelsea next season and be used as cover for mata or something.

    I've got a question but take it at face value and don't turn it into something which it is not.

    Why does Chelsea have so many black players?

    I've always wondered. There are just so many black players at Chelsea compared to most other clubs in the EPL. In fact the only other clubs in Europe that would compete with Chelsea in terms of black players are the french teams.
