  1. Not sure if Tuchel is really on "friendly terms" with Klopp or not. But I can tell you that I don't like Klopp at all. In Germany we have the nickname "camel" for him because his teeth are very similar when Klopp is in his usual outburst of rage.

  2. "Again looking shakey with Christensen at the centre of the back 3 with no physical presence." You must have watched another game, then. He won nearly all his duels incl. headers, was comfy on and off the ball and made one or two elegant long passes upfield. The confirmation bias on here is unbelievable tbf.

  6. As @just pointed out, you swung the other way until you got all upset about the Arsenal game. And no, you're not just "having a snide dig at people who constantly give out snide digs," You and @Brutos are constantly whining on at anyone who isn't 200% over the top in Tuchel-awe. In my opinion, with the exception of Atletico, the bloke has done nothing more than would be expected, nothing more than I would have expected Lampard to get and the smug, childish one-liners from the pair of you ( plus some other armchair managers ) are getting tiresome. I've moved on from Lampard

Mount is just soooooooooo good , we won so easily that we could take him off Jorginho had a good game, the distances behind him reduced negates his biggest weakness Werner lead the line well Kovacic nearly killed Mane There's only room for one German in the best league...Klopp out!

  16. Have to admit to being very impressed with Tuchel. After the sacking of Lamps, I was totally pissed off and think posted on here that the season was over. As much as I support CFC and want them to do well regardless, I will hold my hand up and admit that I wouldn't have cared if the new coach struggled and we slipped further down the table - just to show the club that you can't keep sacking managers the moment things don't quite go according to plan. Even now, I still wish that Lamps had been kept on and given more of a chance to build and get things right. That said, I have to accept tha

    Keep in mind we faced the best defensive side in Europe for the last six years or so. Who also defended with a backline of six(!) players so you were never going to get too many chances against a side like that. I'd say looking to control the game and hopefully take the chances you get was the perfect gameplan and it was executed perfectly by the players and Tuchel. Also happy to see the intensity from everyone being subbed on yesterday. Don't know if it had anything to do with Tuchel's decision to hook CHO at Southampton and players realizing they are in trouble if they don't give everyt

    Welcome Hakim Ziyech

    To me, the worst part so far has been not the lack of quality but rather his attitude. It's understandable if a player struggles in his first season in a new league, but Ziyech looks like he couldn't give a rat's arse, which is odd for someone who is yet to establish himself in a new club. The guy's just a lazy. Say what you want about someone like Werner, who's also struggling, but his effort is never in question.

    Timo Werner

    God, he really does fit into our recent form of fielding weirdly flawed players, doesn't he? Alonso - the wing-back who can't run - can't defend in any meaningful way, but is the best finisher in the team; Jorginho - the static holding midfielder with no presence off the ball, but who also provides zero incision in possession; Kovačić - three seasons in and it's still not particularly clear what it is he does - great when he does do 'it', a total liability when he doesn't; Barkley - the wonderful natural talent, oddly adaptable for an Englishman, great instincts - a

    Crazy how biased the media is, take Liverpool as an example they are plagued with injuries but we never hear anything about that from the media. I had no clue VVD was injured until I bumped into him in The Royal Liverpool University Hospital last week.

    Here are the facts. 3 wins, 1 draw 10 out of 12 points 10th to 5th on the table Grow a ball and give the man the credit he deserves. When he starts losing, go ahead and throw him under the bus. For now, hold your tongue; the man is winning.

  26. Our attack have been letting the team down all season. One may argue they were the biggest reason Frank was sacked. In my memory, going back twenty years I don't remember us being so toothless in front of goal, and given the money spent on attacking talent, frankly it's embarrassing. We let go of Willian, Pedro, Barkley and Batshuayi because Pulisic, CHO, Ziyech, Havertz and Werner on paper looked like a massive upgrade. So far, with the exception of CHO who looked decent but not spectacular, everybody on that list has been various shades of sh*t. Werner started brightly but faded and los

    Good post. I was disappointed to see Frank go, but we need to move on now. Frank leaves the club with his legacy intact in my mind. I actually hold out hope that down the line he will return to the club once he accumulates more managerial experience elsewhere. In relation to Tuchel, I think he's done a good job thus far. The Southampton performance is the only match where I felt he got it wrong in both team selection and tactics. The win against Atletico Madrid is huge for all concerned. I hope it galvanizes the playing group and Tuchel will have the belief he's on the right track wi

  29. I know Atletico were missing quite a few players but they still had plenty of offensive options available to them and I was surprised at just how deep they set up. We had a couple of wobbly moments early on where we were making silly errors under the slightest hint of a press along the back but by the 10th minute it was almost as if Atletico gave up on that tactic and were content to sit deep and let us have the ball. Even when they won back possession they rarely looked to break on us and a couple of tactical fouls easily snuffed out that threat. After we scored they sort of had a

  30. Suarez what a f**king c**t that man is honestly, I absolutely despised him at Liverpool, and this game reminded me why. I'm glad he's gone from our league, horrible little c**t. How does he always get away with it? A blatant kick towards Azpilicueta, similar to what got David Beckham a red card at the World Cup knockout stages over 20 years ago and somehow he doesn't get sent off or it. Then again, antagonizes Rudiger, clearly tries to pull him down, once again he gets away with it not even a booking. He actually never had 1 red card during his whole career at Liverpool, astonishin

  32. Excellent performance tonight. Unbelievable that there was criticism on here at half time. You'd have been mistaken for thinking we were up against an injury hit St Mirren with Ralph Milne up front. Fully deserved win. Well organised. No poor performances (ok Ziyech still a bit iffy). Pretty much a perfect performance.

    I have bit my tongue for the first month or so because I understood people were still quite raw over the Frank sacking so I didn't want to rub salt in the wounds but to say there's been no improvement from those horror last two months is totally wrong. In those times teams were cutting through our defense and midfield like they were nothing, the gaps between them was enormous, the most outrageous example being a header out in our opponents final third ending up being a clean through chance on goal something you shouldn't even be seeing in under 8s football, we were struggling to string pa

    If that were true, which it isn't, the contrary would also hold, that some wanted Frank to lose games so that we could move on to the next shiny coach as soon as possible and not wait until summer. And those that had no patience with Frank will be the ones turning on Tuchel as the sh*t hits the fan, with those that wanted to give Frank until the end of the season sticking by him to honour the contract and give time to show if he can get out of the slump. What some don't get is that we are not against Tuchel or want Chelsea to fail, it is that we understand that a contract is somethin

    Ironic it will probably be ones who wanted Frank out that will do the most shouting again if Tuchel has a downturn. Many on here have stuck with the club through very dodgy times and will continue to do so, win or lose. Believe me it is far easier to follow a winning team than one that drains you year in year out. So the idea that some would prefer us to lose it totally absurd. As for Frank, he is a legend as a player, I would have preferred him to be given a little longer but accept the club is a business first and hopefully the club have made the correct decision. We are all Chelsea fans and

There’s something special about the FA cup, love seeing the minnows play against giants and often you’d hear about nice stories etc behind the minnows. You don’t get that in the Premier League or Champions league.

  41. Nah - you're misreading the situation. Tommy Tactics was always a reaction to the brutal sacking of a club legend. The difference between those posters and the hyperventilaters who turned on Lampard 3 weeks after we were top of the league is an even keel. I think we're boring as hell to watch but we've turned our bad form around and that's a good thing, I'm happy to give him a chance without being particularly over invested in him. I'm also not getting carried away. We won last night from a single moment of brilliance from Giroud, I'm not saying we'll win the Champions League or eve

  42. I think we've seen about 3% of what we we were hoping for from Ziyech and Havertz so far. We keep waiting for their Chelsea careers to start, but I am growing increasingly pessimistic they ever will. Chuck in Werner's horrendous form ( after a promising start), and Pulisic's disaster of a season, and it's fair to say those four big signings have been an unbelievable let-down this season. After the likes of Bakayoko, Morata and Drinkwater, I was feeling pretty good about our recruitment, but bloody hell...

    Building a team around a single player is daft, almost as daft as spending sh*t loads of money on a player and giving up on him half way through the season.
