Community Shield 2018 Chelsea vs Spurs

If Chelsea win the FA Cup they face Tottenham Hotspur in the Community Shield

Sun reporter Andrew Richardson seems to think football didn't exist before the Premier League which is insulting to all the clubs who have achieved magnificent things prior to that date. History doesn't just get expunged, Mr. Richardson.

Everything you need to know as Antonio Conte's men aim to become only third team to win domestic double in England his sub-headline shouts, wrong they are one of 7 teams who have achieved the feat.

Preston North End won the double in 1889 without losing a game all season and Spurs, of course, won it when it was considered impossible to do.

If Chelsea win the double then they will face the Premier League runners-up, Tottenham Hotspur, in August. If that happens it is a game we need to be ready for, it's a chance to win a trophy having played only one game and the players can then experience the celebrations etc that go with it.

It is a backdoor entry to winning trophies and one we should focus on. The experience can only help in our quest for further trophies.

  1. You spuds are so desparate keep 60/61 in the frame.Pathetic!

    1. It's hard to believe anyone could be dumb enough to make such a comment, but let's go with it.

      So, Paul, what do you believe would be a good time frame to consider accomplishments within?

    2. so what it did happen its called history Paul that is why west ham still remember Bobby Moore because it was great C.O.Y.S

    3. Plain stupidity, what you are saying is you should forget all double winners then as all are history so the Sun article should say Chelsea would be the first by your reckoning.

  2. That would be a cracker of a game. Skill wise and stamina, Spurs tipped as favorites, temperament would have been the only concern. Loved the wonderful workman like way Spurs went through their final 11 league games. What a finish to the season. Brilliant stuff.

    1. Charity Shields are a skill all their own. Very hard to predict results. Certainly we outplayed them each time we met during this last season, but only once was it by any sort of margin. They were one of the few teams to push us all the way and I can see no reason to expect an easier ride in the CS.

      It should be a very decent game as long as we're fully charged and ready to go, but that's not always the case at the start of a season. Also, we're at Wembley again. Not our best venue recently.

      Still, I'm very much looking forward to it. Perhaps, like in all our performance stats except the final points tally, we'll show we're the best there is ATM.


    2. We don't have a Wenbley hoodoo so lets not spread the word we have, wrong mentality, we lost the semi-final to a side who were clinical on the day, simple as that. The next game is a fresh game, not affected by history, unless you start giving credence to a hoodoo, then that would inhibit and affect performance.

      Supporters help to create an environment, hopefully a winning one.

    4. I generally agree with most of what you say Clive, and you're a refreshing voice about mentality, time and again.

      However, I don't believe we can simply ignore history. I believe we have to face up to it honestly, recognise where we aren't as strong as we'd like to be, and improve that area. This is what Poch is doing with the Wembley situation I'm sure. I'm confident that, just as we used to be known as Spursy, and we are no longer that, we will get to the stage very shortly in the coming season where our difficulties playing at Wembley, and larger pitches in general possibly, will be a thing of the past. Perhaps we've already reached that point. We were certainly dominant for most of the game against Chelsea in the semi-final.

      But you're right. This is no hoodoo. We have a club with such a strong collective mentality now that we can be confident that any issue that comes up will be dealt with positively and without the fear that goes to make up a hoodoo.
