  1. Hmmm.... There really wasn't much for him to go on though, coach or not.
  2. We officially have an incompetent board

    Never a huge fan of Kalou or Mikel, but Mikel did get a lot of defence on here. In any case, a lot of his criticism was bought about by some of the Nigerian / African support behind him always bleeting on about how he was some sort of superstar who was hard done by. He was an average player, who did a decent/acceptable job in the end and was part of a successful era. Cahill has been and is regularly criticised. Has been this way for a long time. Just seems to have got to a ridiculous point recently where everything seems to be his fault now.
  3. Eden Hazard

    It's this casual, carefree attitude he often displays that... Gets me sometimes. Dawdling on the ball, slowing play to a standstill. The man has pace and ability and drive to completely bewilder his opponents but he just loves to fanny around with the ball half the time. I know. He's a truly special talent and has carried Chelsea for at least a couple of seasons in terms of goals and creating chances, but he can and ought to be better, I can't help but feel. Mentioning him in the same breath as Messi and Ronaldo is ridiculous. As good as he is, he is nowhere near that. Just not ruthless enough to be better than what he is right now.
  4. Antonio Conte - Now Officially Manager

    Yes. I made a few harsh comments to this effect but he would have assessed the team's stamina levels and 'freshness' and probably thought the team will be run ragged unless they sit back and try to nick a win. Still, I'm sure there's way to play very defensive tactics with a more potent counter threat than what was on show today. Two midget wingers, and Azpilicueta and Alonso expected to lead the charge. :|
  5. To be fair to myself (pat self on the back ), as soon as I saw Azpi as wingback in a 3-5-2 I thought this is going to invite trouble, setting up to defend 90 minutes and scrounge a few chances here and there.
  6. Yes. I wouldn't be surprised if he has said something to turn get into his head, more than just a 'well done'. I see Willian and Cahill are once more scapegoats on here. Neither of them were hugely influential in bringing about this poor result, imho.
  7. Can we stop debating who of the two Manchester sides will win the league? This was a bad performance and Conte got it badly wrong, but it's a long, long way to go.
  8. On another note, I never again want to see the pure defecation that is a striker-less formation. Honestly, what on earth did you expect? An empty box and you expect to score goals? Conte there at the end shouting at the players trying to urge them on. Maybe if you'd started without being such a tactical wuss your players wouldn't have been feeding off scraps all game. Infuriating tactics from Conte.
  9. Not faulting the players. Conte with his cowardly tactics there gave City an easy game. Barely any meaningful shots or attacks in 90 minutes. Even before Morata went off, City were the most likely to score. If Aguero was on, this would have been 3 or 4. Just waiting for the inevitable. Go a goal down before having some balls to do something positive.
  10. Conte at fault squarely if this is a loss.
  11. Here we go. Now you'll see him do what he was supposed to do. Embarrassing defensive tactics that were sure to backfire. Trying to scrape a 0-0 at home.
  12. It would help if there were some options and something for City to be worried about. They can afford to easily squeeze play. Willian for Morata was a poor sub imho. Batshuyi would have been better. At least Pedro who makes those runs you need on the counter. Willian and Hazard are too similar.
  13. Manager is so worried about opposition. This City defence can be opened up. Look at that midfielder. They have all offensive players and a half baked DM out there. Should be dominating them in the middle of the pitch but Could ntebis basically conceding the whole midfield to them.
  14. Started off with a defensive lineup. Willian on for Morata now even more defensive. Conte should have some more courage. The home team playing like this isn't befitting of Chelsea. Can have no complaints if this is a defeat. I don't see where a goal is going to come from. Going to wait till a goal down to change things.
