Prime’s 99p this week for one week, then reverts to 7.99 monthly. If you’re intentions are to just try the month trial, remember, the onus is on you to make your own withdrawal from subscription once that trial expires. Otherwise, they’ll continue to charge you each month.2nd December 2019 at 5:39 pm #551852nd December 2019 at 8:41 pm #55206Brian blueParticipant424 pts
Nil….but I would want to create my own atmosphere just like when i go to the match now….I do not have a half baked pundit telling me what I am looking at3rd December 2019 at 8:11 am #55236Chelsea1967Participant85 pts
United 22 points behind Liverpool after only 14 matches. Unbelievable decline in fortunes. Ole must go if they lose the next two.
Yes, Chelsea are 14 points adrift however there are slightly different expectations at the Bridge right now with youth coming through and the club in the middle of a transfer ban.

Not the player he once was? Past his peak years as a player. Nah he’s only 26. He’ll come good once the club gets its act together.3rd December 2019 at 10:11 am #55250442Participant58 pts
Chucky… Jose isnt going to get a nice reception nat the bridge anymore, that’s been decided, its panto season, he is the number one villain at the minute. Got no love for the guy either since he’s become a loser spurs fan… to coin a trumpism. ??

10… he maybe an Arsenal, but he’s our Arsenal now, so he’s a nice Arsenal…. 🙂3rd December 2019 at 10:53 am #55258
Brian, I understand your perspective. I’d say from what I’ve experienced in my lifetime, there’s a handful of commentators that was purely second nature in hearing the sound of their voice and their commentary whenever a match was screened or listened to on the Radio.

442, Maybe people have just moved with the times or aren’t as that bothered from somebody switching from one rival club to another. I still can’t get my head around George Graham joining Spurs when many out there could have perceived him to be pure Arsenal blood! 🙂3rd December 2019 at 11:06 am #55266442Participant58 pts
New Balance… My personal view on it, I f-ing love Jose… I will happily boo and make his life as uncomfortable or difficult for those 90 mins he’s in the opposite dug out… But my god, without him, we’d probably still be sweeping up near the wrong end of the league. He is a Chelsea legend, our most successful manager… Them be the facts and I’ll give him hell when he comes to the bridge managing one of our closest rivals. I think he enjoys it too… Spurs are lucky to have him until it goes sour. Jose is the managerial equivalent of a player slapping his hand on club badge after scoring a goal before forcing through a transfer to a local rival whilst spouting his life long admiration for his new suitors. Its the nature of the beast.
I want to See Jose at international level to be honest. Think he’s exhausted club football.3rd December 2019 at 2:22 pm #55312nine nine nineModerator910 pts
Nil, make no mistake despite what Jose did at Chelsea he won’t get a warm welcome at the Bridge having managed both United and now Spurs where there’s particularly no love lost between the fans of both Club’s.
Jose probably won’t feel the love again from Chelsea fans at the Bridge until he finishes with Club football.
Personally I can’t forget what he contributed to Chelsea not just in winning trophies but in building the foundations for a winning Chelsea period long after he left the first time.
Just to clear up any misinterpretations though Chelsea weren’t a mid table Club or floundering towards the bottom of the League when Jose took over because in the 7 seasons leading up to Jose’s title winning season in 97/98 Chelsea finished 4th, in 98/99 3rd,in 99/00 5th, in 01/02 6th,01/02 6th, 02/03 4th ( you’ll remember that one) and in 03/04 2nd.
During that same period Chelsea also won 2 FA Cups, 1 League Cup, 1 European Cup Winners Cup and 1 European Super Cup.
So Jose wasn’t taking over a team of no hopers starved of all success but a team after the Abramovich takeover primed for further success and Jose added organisation and a winning mentality to what he inherited from Ranieri.
Personally I will always be grateful to him for what he bought to the Club particularly during his first tenure and I could never boo him.

Some would argue Chelsea were a decent Cup team who were about to do a Leeds until Maureen showed up with Roman’s check book burning a hole in his back pocket…. 🙂
I don’t think anybody is suggesting Chelsea were about to get relegated, but in the same token, let’s not pretend they were about to take over the world either…3rd December 2019 at 2:53 pm #55321nine nine nineModerator910 pts
Chucky, Chelsea were never about to do a Leeds I know for a fact that there were several looking to takeover the Club prior to the Abramovich takeover he was just the wealthiest.
Compare what Chelsea won from 1997/98 up to 2003/04 which also very nearly included a PL title too in 99 v Spurs two League Cups since 1991 to date.?
Post the Abramovich takeover as I’ve stated on here many times no Chelsea fan disagrees that the Abramovich takeover was the major contributory factor to what happened from there.3rd December 2019 at 3:20 pm #55333
Nine, I’d probably think the same if I was in your shoes mate.
I think in a scenario like Kenny being at Blackburn was just unique. Many of us fans were made up for in back in 1995. It was just a peculiar scenario at Anfield, even though the Reds behaved and conducted themselves really professionally.3rd December 2019 at 3:21 pm #55334

Brian Blue “Nil…what would be great for me and I would certainly subscribe to any channel that offered it was a switch to turn off the commentators and leave the crowd noise!!!!!”
With Amazon Prime you can do just that Brian allowing you to toggle between audio commentary and stadium fx.
