The Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern are still celebrating their title win…
In a thrilling climax to an impressive campaign from the Blues, a last-ditch winner from Michy Batshuayi won the three points for Antonio Conte’s side – sealing the title for the club.
A key feature for much of the campaign, Gary Cahill has impressed this year, captaining the Blues in the absence of John Terry, and following the conclusion of the game on Friday – he had some choice words for doubters of the Blues.
According to the Evening Standard, he said: “Everybody else talks… and makes excuses, talks about why we’re playing this way and why we’re not playing that way”
Cahill’s comments certainly ring true, with even the fans in the Transfer Tavern criticising Chelsea at points this season. The main point of criticism for most supporters is that Chelsea’s style of play hasn’t exactly been pretty – but it has been effective. Whilst teams like Man City and Tottenham play quick, exciting football – typically Chelsea’s is decidedly less so. But like Cahill says, you can’t argue with form.
That being said, our landlord thinks that the Blues deserve far more credit. Just a year ago, the Blues were battling for a mid-table finish. What a difference a year makes…
