  1. Nice assist from Frank Lampard to Darren Bent, as he slots it through Cech’s leg to make it 1-1.
    Essien keeps getting stronger…
    Good morning Gaffer- what happened to the chats?

  2. I think is difficult that Chelsea lose a match at home but today Tottenham knows how to play and get one important point in a very difficult place, maybe is the good way to grow for this team after their first two matches

  3. Watching the PL Review show, the league should really look into implementing some goal-line technology, three decisions that were very very close.

  4. The sad truth is that the Premier League were leading the way in developing the technology but FIFA decided to dump the idea in favor of testing a six referee plan for the future.

    To me, the goal-line technology would be the easiest to implement and least controversial use of technology. It’s time for FIFA to wake up.

    Cheers,
    The Gaffer

  5. Spurs absolutely have to dump the 4-5-1. Bent is out on an island by himself and cant get anything going as the lone front man – Pavlu hopefully will team up well and bring back the two-man strike force.
