  1. The Gaffer says:

    At this rate, I don’t see Spurs scoring a goal in this match today. It’s all Chelsea.

  2. Beto says:

    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?

  3. Cohen says:

    FSC had “only” 5 minute delay to the game. These guys are pathetic. Shame on them for their unprofessionalism…

  4. Dady says:

    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

  5. The Gaffer says:

    Hoping to make an announcement sometime this week regarding the return of the chat. Stay tuned for more details : )

  6. Ryan says:

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

  7. The Gaffer says:

    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.

  8. Weston says:

    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.
