  1. I bet Ross Barkley still gets subbed before Bakayoko.
  2. Same old story, 1-0 up and throw it away. I've accepted that we are now the 5th or 6th best team in the league but what's disappointing is that we couldn't manage a win for Ray Wilkins today.

    Antonio Conte - Now Officially Manager

    Sums up our season really, go 1-0 up, fail to kill the game off and then concede and throw away points. Top 4 definitely gone now, I can't even see us winning all our games let alone Liverpool & Spurs losing 3 or 4 games before the season ends. Ironic that it was a substitution that changed the game for them as that is definitely one of Conte's weakest points. Whoever is to blame the most for this slump, and imo the board, the players and the manager have all made mistakes, 5 wins out of 20 games is very poor form.
  4. I swear every 50/50 offside decision has gone Liverpool's way tonight.
  5. Yep, and didn't they "somehow" get the number of the hotel Chelsea was staying at in 13-14 and fire alarms was set off at 3am. I think someone in their team slipped that day and we won 2-0 after all that.
  6. They attacked the City bus with objects while it was on the way to the stadium. The front windscreen is damaged and they apparently it's so bad that they have to get another bus to take them home.
  7. As good as Liverpool have been you can't underestimate the effect of Man City having their bus attacked by the Liverpool fans which I'm sure will be all forgotten about by full time.
  8. We seem to revert back to the managers who play the "soak up pressure and hit them on the break" style and that turns us into a team that only plays for one half of a football match. I used to watch other top team's matches and think that opposition teams roll over for them, but it isn't as simple as that, they seem to have more energetic players who press from the front and force teams into mistakes. And when they do score they keep up the intensity and look to score again asap, and they normally start home games fast and on the front foot as they know a early goal can put any defensive plans out the window as long as you follow it up with a 2nd goal. Even a energetic ball playing midfielder and a change of formation could make a difference. Maybe looking at the Italian league for managers isn't the answer anymore. Having a Italian style in the premier league is risky as our league is totally different and played with a different intensity. Even our youth teams even seem to play with a different football philosophy. Our next managerial appointment is going to be one of the most pivotal moments at this club for a number of years.

    MOTD Chelsea rant

    I remember that bit and what made me smile is that Gary Neville said straight away "I disagree with what Jamie has just said". 2 ex-footballers.....one is now a proper football pundit and the other is someone still more famous for being injured all the time, marrying a pop star and that white suite and sunglasses.

    RIP Ray Wilkins

    Very sad news. One of my all time favourite Chelsea players. R.I.P. Ray (Butch) Wilkins
  11. 2 Chelsea legends doing the draw, wink wink
  12. Danny Murphy didn’t even style out his disappointment there.
  13. It seems our plan is to go 1-0 up, sit back wait for teams to come onto us and then hopefully get a second goal on the break. The problem with that is everything needs to go perfectly to plan, and that clearly isn’t going to happen every week so it’s not a surprise when that plan goes wrong. If we even went full throttle until we was 2-0 ahead that would make a big difference IMO. I don’t ever feel comfortable at 1-0 when a mistake or a moment of magic wipes out our lead.

    Welcome N’Golo Kante

    What a player this guy is, does the work of 2 players. Imagine if we had an energetic ball playing midfielder next to him.

    Antonio Conte - Now Officially Manager

    I thought we done well tonight and certainly didn’t deserve the 3-0 scoreline, so I can’t really blame Conte for this one. At least we played like a big team compared to the Man City game. We lack a world class striker and it showed tonight.
