    If Mount doesn’t turn in to a complete bellend like Alli that’d be good enough for me.

    David Luiz back at Chelsea

    Probably got the hump after lamps asked him to try and you know, defend. So he's thought, where can I go where defending is optional? Ah I know, arsenal.

    Racist fanbase?

    i am a black chelsea supporter, and it is a difficult subject to get into really. It feels like a bit of a PR exercise in my opinion. The 5 other fans that received a 1-2 year suspension, have been punished for acting like fans do all over the country. Im not saying its right or wrong to aggresively shout at a player like that, but it is no more than what goes on in every game up and down the country. With regards to the alleged racism. While i do find it slightly strange that he would call him a manc c**t anyway, (would anyone up north refer to barkley as Cockney just because he plays for a london club?), The guy has been cleared by police, in what was a high profile investigation, how the club can then come to a different conclusion sits uneasily with me, as it did with JT. I get @Brutos point, racist language doesnt necessarily need to be used in racist behaviour, but there is no way of knowing whether the aggression shown towards sterling was racially aggrevated. That is hardest thing about stopping racism. As a society we can do our best to stop racist language, and discrimination, but we cant punish peoples thoughts, and we cant attach racism to every white guy that is aggresive towards a black guy. The club have used this opportunity to make example, its good PR for the club, and we are trying to stop racism in club. The only person who knows whether they are right or wrong though, is the man involved.

    Willian

    Cross goes in from the right, clears the two men in the middle and bounces out near the corner flag.. Probably would have been a back post tap in for Raheem Sterling. Willian watching from outside the box, never has a chance to get there. Ball comes square across the top of the box. Willian makes no effort to get a shot. Would have been simple for him to get a good look with a little effort. Examples one and two on why he doesn't score goals... Effort... Mason Mount takes the ball for a set piece... Willian sulks away. Mason tries a shot.. Pretty obvious it wouldn't come short, Willian removed himself from the play. Puts a corner into the first man, and then gets called for offsides, because he's too lazy to get back into the play. 92' - ball coming up the right wing, Willian with a slow jog across midfield, as Emerson is busting a gut to get to the left wing. Willian hangs back as Emerson stays further up the pitch on the wing. Willian plays a ball straight to a Leicester player. Emerson flies by him the other direction to track back after (another) Willian's give-away. What we saw today was not only peak Willian. It was also completely entitled Willian. He's been catered to by the management of this club for so long. A squad player treated like a hero. The #10 shirt to a player with this attitude, is a slap in the face to the club and its fans. Frankly (no pun intended), I'm disgusted. I expect better from Chelsea and those wearing the badge... Let alone a player given the honor of the #10 "She is mine".

    Can you imagine being this angry and negative about the team you supposedly support on the eve on the second league game of the season? Especially when the team is being managed by arguably our all time greatest player and we’re seeing the biggest influx of youth in the team during the Premier League era. If you can’t bring yourself to feel positive and optimistic about the team this early in the season then I’d suggest not watching Chelsea at all because who needs that level of negativity in their life?

    I missed the game and only saw the highlights on MOTD. I was really impressed at first and when Mount got his goal I thought the floodgates would open but instead it was all Leicester after that. I suspected the MOTD lot were being crafty with the editing, but having now skimmed through a few pages here I see it really was like that. The pundits speculated that it’s a fitness issue, I agree that might be a contributing factor but nobody can play at 100% intensity for 90 minutes, so I’m not completely buying it. I think it’s more that we’re simply still a work in progress. With a new manager, new system, and a bunch of young/inexperienced players, it’s going to take a while for them to learn how best to function together, especially when the match is not going according to plan. We seem to have already nailed it at times though, which is a good sign. The fans wanted Frank back, to see the kids given a chance, and a move away from Sarri‘s „boring“ possession based football, and this is exactly what we’ve got. As fans we now need to stand behind this bunch of players and the manager and let them grow together into a team. Anybody booing the team at this stage (or freaking out on an Internet forum) need to figure out what the f**k they really want.

    Racist fanbase?

    If you think that photo clearly depicts racism then you're an absolute idiot. I could show you a thousand pictures of white players being treated exactly the same. You're just playing the victim card. Chelsea hired Sarri and retained JT, but they've thrown this fan under the bus. Shame on them. The CPS didn't have enough evidence to proceed, unlike with JT, but the club have banned him for life. How appalling. If you're a player and you racially abuse someone you get a 6 game ban. Those are the rules. This guy gets life, despite the CPS ruling there was insufficient evidence. The other fans, there isn't even a suspicion of racially-aggravated language, but they've been banned as well. Why? They were giving a player an earful, as happens up and down the country all year. The board have really let them down. The board are lily-livered in the face of the media. All they think about is their public image and money. They have absolutely no loyalty towards the fans, as we saw with the EL final. This is a disgraceful decision by the club who were always going to find them guilty because they didn't want the bad publicity of allowing these guys straight back in. It's all about publicity. It's all about their fear of the media. No other club in the world throws its fans under the bus like ours does. Personally I'd like to throw them all under a bus, starting with Bruce Buck. What an absolutely pathetic decision.

    Sometimes a bad result/performance can tell you a lot more about your team and players than any number of wins ever could. As nice as it would be to cruise every pre-season game smashing in tons of goals it wouldn't be a true reflection of the quality of the squad. Hopefully Frank will have learned a lot from today's game and have a better idea of how he wants us to line up and which players he does and doesn't want to work with.

    Amen to that. Is a major rebuild and we need to give Frank and our young players time and patience.

    Tammy Abraham

    Dear oh dear. Gets 30 minutes when our midfield has folded, our creative players are dead on their feet or just cr*p (Willian). He links up well where he can, he is inches away from a good header connection and works hard. But gets panned cause he is expected to be Drogba...deary me. Have some patience. We were never going to make top 4 this year. This is a total rebuild job. Maybe tammy will fail and be sold but give him a bit more time eh?

    César 'Dave' Azpilicueta

    Sorry but i can remember about half a dozen times when he was either out of posiition, turned off to danger at the back post, or conceded possession easily and was unable to track back and recover. The Maddison blaze over when it was easier to score came from Azpi losing possession on the half way line and then being unable to recover the ground in getting back. I've been a massive fan of Dave's for years but he is going south rapidly. The concern is that even with the direction he seems to be taking lately i'd still prefer him over Zappacosta at the moment and there is no fit available alternative.

    It is going to take time and so far we are seeing glimpses of what Lamps & Jody are trying to create. First 25 minutes was excellent but we dropped off and second half Leicester got stronger and Maddison dictated everything and we were lucky they didn't take all 3 points. Abraham for Giroud was a good sub as he gave us a bit more energy where we needed it but the Kovacic and Willian subs failed badly. When you are the home side chasing the points, to see Willian so lacklustre and disinterested and keep giving the ball away - just inexcusable and sums up why supporters get on his back. Some good signs today - especially Mount, but still a LOT of work to do.

    Christian Pulisic - Official

    Funny how people can watch the same game and see things so differently. I too thought Pedro was poor. Bad passes and conceding possession, which led to dangerous United counters and their first goal. And on the attacking end time and again poor decision making, shooting the ball when he needed to pass and the other way around. I thought he was very frustrating. As for Pulisic, I have high hopes for him. I think he has both the talent and the right attitude and can become an important player for us.

    I don't rate Zouma at all and Tomori isn't good enough. So to go into a season with just Rudiger and Christensen as viable CBs isn't very good. I'd also rather not sell to a PL rival yet again, but we seem to be making a habit of it lately.

    Just seen the footage of the motor-bike attempted assault on Ozil & Kolasinac. Fair play to Kolasinac - taking on a couple of blokes with knives. He is a bit of a beast and looks like he has more backbone than the rest of the Arsenal squad put together.

    F**king love this season, seeing the new faces, seeing Frank as manager, seeing youth integrated, and seeing promise. One of the things in the past was the essence of needing to win big, and win now. I honestly don't feel that this season, I think everyone with any sense should realize that this is a huge overhaul. The biggest in the Roman era. I fully expect Frank to be given this year, with the transfer ban, to keep us in the top 6. If development is made, and promise is shown, I expect some cash will be thrown his way to add where needed next year. I don't think there is as much pressure on him (other than what he puts on himself) as the pundits are making out. Also, I saw that #LampardOut was trending on twitter yesterday. I looked into it and there was one guy who claimed he had followed Chelsea since 04 who started an account, and then all the other hashtags were just Utd and other Rival fans typing it in to bash Chelsea with. Pretty pathetic really, but I will add it is pathetic if you're a Chelsea fan already considering this to be something that should materialize.

    I really liked how he handled Vardy's runs, kept with him nicely and really limited his scoring chances.

    But it wasn't a handball, that's the point. A handball is a moverment of a hand towards a ball with intent, that was none of that.

    Kante was on another level to every player out there tonight. Incredible performance from somebody that has just come back from an injury he has been struggling with since the end of last season and from a player that has had almost no pre-season preparation.

    A bit sad when I prefer watching American streams compared to our own British TV. I heard they're still banging on about the penalty on BT.

    He got away with it first time round because he had far better players around him covering his ass and getting him out of trouble. What i saw yesterday was the level of player i always thought he was - terribly limited on the ball, awful sense of position, clumsy and turns like an oil tanker. Absolutely crazy not to take £40 million for him!

    With David Luiz following Gary Cahill out the door this window, the entire 18-man squad for our 2012 Champions League Final in Munich has now left the club. But of course, the captain on the day is now our manager. Super Frank!

    David Luiz back at Chelsea

    Got to say Luiz was one of the players I was hoping to see shipped out this summer (before the Transfer Ban was announced) - his inconsistency and lack of motivation in some games last season started to really grate. Then he had a sh*t pre-season and seemed oblivious to the fact he was supposed to be impressing a new Boss and fighting for his spot. The manner of his leaving has revealed a lot about his character, he knows the Premiership and knows us Fans won't like him going to such close rivals but he's prepared to wreck his reputation by leaving two days before the Season starts.

    Pre-season matches 2019

    To be fair to any of our CB’s it doesn’t make it easy without Kante, teams glide through the centre of our team when we press forward because some of the guys don’t have the speed or stamina to then turn and bust their balls on the way back. It leaves them completely exposed to 3 on 2 or 4 on 3 situations. obviously you hope they do better but it’s not easy. He’s always been the same tbf, he’s not as good as people like Alex Goldberg etc make out he is. He’s not got enough awareness about him IMO. He goes charging about like Luiz but even when he’s not, he never seems to be in the right place.

    As a black supporter and also of Jamaican decent( also born in Jamaica ad came here young) when I saw this I was absolutely sicken and it's exactly one of the reasons I don't go to matches. I give two sh*ts if he's saying Black c**t or manc c**t the absolute bile and venom In his abuse goes beyond football and you can see the racially charge intention in his abuse probably after reading the sun mirror and daily fail on Raheem and how a young black immigrant footballer is making so much money.

    I personally think it’s a myth Chelsea are/were defensive. Yeah when the occasion called for it we played backs to the wall, mostly because the managers weren’t naive enough to play too open. You don’t win titles and trophies sitting back all the time. You’ve got to be good at scoring more goals than the other team (obviously)!
