Adam Jones and Thomas Tuchel let out the noise of 3am.
They all try to like it, all are cackling, but only one guy thinks it’s funny.
So, I hear, we’re the new favourites for the Premiership, are we? (Peter Whybrow here. Sigh.)
P.S. Chelsea have been top of the table since November 17th; Peter has a friend who says he’s on fire with his barbecue and there’s no TV in his house that night.
Only Peter Does Not Recall Beating Howling Thunders Helped Make Him World Class.
Alright, so maybe they’re more the underdogs than full odds favorites this season. Before the gauntlet was thrown in the boys’ faces in midweek the boys had been top of the table and had a few points to spare.
Chelsea are in the most comfortable position they’ve been in for quite some time and I have no idea where the gap is between them and the rest of the pack. They’re flying, they don’t seem to have any weak links to speak of, they all seem to be just a little bit different.
Could Thomas Tuchel be the man to guide them all to new heights? I think so.
Well, he would have his work cut out, but he’s certainly earned the title of interim boss as of this writing and he’s really been pretty good so far in my opinion.
It’s unusual to have your preferred side fighting amongst itself for the title, there’s not the feeling of everyone being on top at the same time. Their play this season is so similar, there’s not enough individuals capable of breaking through but I think it’s all in the team.
Things like that, think about it, when you’re with a team all the time you pick up on habits and routines. I have friends who work for public sector institutions and many of them work long hours, they tend to over-do it, they hit the gym even on a holiday day.
They couldn’t really keep it up for two years but Chelsea have that team spirit. The thing about this side is that they’ve got a bunch of very happy players and there’s no squad jealousy, everyone supports each other.
Their first home win against Crystal Palace was a great advert for the Premiership and the biggest buzzing I’ve heard about their game with Bournemouth can be attributed to Tunes’ introduction as manager.
I don’t want to sound like a stalker but I seem to remember there being a boy called Aaron in the Champions League final. Chelsea are on a mission. They have no one else to chase and they have the margin to set their own rules.
New York, please. Let’s do it!
