^ Ha! 😃
I thought you were going to be happy with result and new trophy 😃 Congratulations comrade!

Are you playing in the fans tournament this year again? (I just receive your PM after I post this). We will be there, and look to do better than last year! And even more fun if possible too!

Yes! You’re a Liverpool fan? Congratulations are in order. Quite the game. It was nice to see a South American team rise to the occasion. I feel like it’d been a while.

I like watching Liverpool play but not a fan. (You were talking to me? Sorry if not)
They are very good to watch - entertaining football and tactical awareness. Even when other team plays well there will be goals and chances and excitement. A bit like old football.

I am Spartak Moscow fan! The Red-Whites 😃 Next season will be better, always next season 😃

Flamengo were good to watch all this season, very attacking play and good in Libertadores too. Very close in the World Club Final and could have scored to win too. I hope they do well again.
Zico is old favorite player of myself. Brazil team was very special, for Flamengo too! Are you Flamengo fan?

It has been 30 years…

The Champions of England, Champions of Europe, Champions of the World - Champions of Everywhere! 😉

On the wider football front…

Really pleasing to see so many teams and organisations from all over the world backing the Black Lives Matter campaign - each and every game - to people watching all over the world…

^ and also support and appreciation for the NHS in the UK too 👍

Why don’t you knock it off with them negative waves? Why don’t you dig how beautiful it is out here? 
Why don’t you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

Any Leverkusen fans around?

I’m not a fan of them (liverpool for me) - though do enjoy watching Die Werkself. We get many of the Bundesliga games here in the UK on BT Sport, and also by other means 😉 Felt for you guys missing out so narrowly on Champions League qualification this season.

A clinical display and performance over Rangers in the Europa League was pretty impressive, and I hope you do the same vs Inter in the Quarters 😃

Super hyped and ready for football! Really excited for this season as we (Chelsea) signed some great players in Ben Chilwell, Timo Werner, Kai Havertz, Hakim Ziyech, and Thiago Silva. I think we’re all around looking very promising and upwards with current youngsters like Mason Mount rounding out the lineup. We just need to find a long term solution at Goalkeeper and Centre Back. I’m thinking though Silva will be a stop gap until we go after bringing Declan Rice back to the Bridge next year. Not sure what we’ll do at Goalkeeper long term but hopefully we find something!

Our women’s side also looks even more ready to push for Champion’s League!

As a sidenote I was watching the Amazon football documentary about Leeds called Take Us Home and even as a Chelsea fan who is supposed to hate them can’t help but have some respect and be interested to see how they do in their return to the top flight.

Has anyone else seen any of the documentary?

Come on you Blues!

I haven’t seen the doc on Leeds yet - though the one on Spurs was quite entertaining. The doc on Sunderland was quite an illuminating watch too.

Chelsea, eh? The Dark Side… j/k 😃

Should be a good season for you guys if it all clicks together - that gk situation could be problematic unless you can get someone in. Do you guys have to sell (Kepa?) before buying - or is there a little still left in the bank?

Should be a good game on the 20th 😃

I never saw you replied! My apologies for not getting back to you.

I’ve not seen the Spurs or Sunderland ones. I’ll have to check them out for sure. There’s some great classic football documentaries on YouTube too. I particularly love this one. There’s a tad bit of bias I’m sure.

Haha, yes the Dark Side! We have cookies. 😁

There’s still a little in the bank as the signing of Edouard Mendy from France is said to be happening today as he passed his physical yesterday. Petr Cech rates him highly. So hopefully he can bring prose back to our goalkeepering. We desperately needed it. I do feel for Kepa but we should never have played low ball with Alisson.

Yes, yes. Congrats on the win! We’ll just win at Ainfield. 😁

Happy with our win versus Barnsley!

That video link left me feeling somewhat Blue… (bad puns ahoy - sorry. Definitely NSFW! 😉)
 

I was hoping Chelsea’d have to persevere with Kepa for the season - though fair play to you guys for getting some quality transfers in. From a Red point of view I hope it takes a long time for them to gel… 😁

Albion should bean interesting game for you on Saturday. They’ll likely keep it tight and not come out to play unless on the counter-attack - see how you try and break down a packed defence…
 

That ‘Sunderland Til I Die’ series is well worth checking out (subtitles may be required; sorry any Mackems reading this) - hard to imagine a professional club ran like it was in the documentary - and that the club also allowed it to air. I really hope they do a third series of it.

Haha, quite clever! The bad that it’s good! Just don’t be red when we win at Anfield. Haha

Yes, for sure. I was hoping Kepa would be the answer but he just doesn’t seem to have the mental make up of a Premier League player. Perhaps he can play in the lower cup rounds to gain confidence though. Suppose time will tell. Haha, thank you! I do think it’ll take awhile but I’m confident that it won’t be too long either. We just need to get healthy and everyone to play together. 😊 Liverpool did good bringing Thiago Alcantar in. I think he’ll be a solid addition in helping you try to repeat.

It should be interesting for sure! Plus Conor Gallagher is on loan at Albion. It should be interesting to see how he does against his future teammates if he plays.

Arsenal should be an interesting game too. It will really show I think if they’re serious about turning the corner (That could be a bad pun too! 😁) or are still the same ole Gooners.

Definitely will have to try watching with subtitles. I really feel for Sunderland fans though. Their fall in such a short amount of time is heartbreaking in a lot of ways. Especially even further when you consider Newcastle may have new ownership soon that looks like they want to compete for Top 6 in the top tier. Ouch! At least they could be getting new ownership too. I hope for their sake it’s someone respectable.

A truly bizarre weekend of football - with some interesting interpretations of handball from the match officials 😃

Nice one on coming back vs Albion, BB-Rey. Obviously, I was hoping the Albion would hang on in there, and that Chelsea wouldn’t be able to handle [cough] having to comeback like that…
 

Liverpool vs Arsenal should be a decent watch tonight - any wagers on there being a penalty? 😉
