  1. One silver lining is hopefully it shuts the f**king bellends up who constantly whine about Mason Mount.

  3. Good comeback, this side has potential but we have to cut out the defensive brain farts Havertz is going to be a very important player for us Franks changes paid dividends though not sure his final tactical change when he brought on Giroud had the desired effect,we lost space to operate in the final third, one point gained though CHO did well again when moved across to the left Werner is in need of a goal This season is going to be fun but will have a lot of ups and downs

  4. The definition of entitlement is “belief that one is inherently deserving of privileges or special treatment“ WBA play in the prem not the Championship so are in fact a prem team there are no longer any poor teams in the league, we saw that last year when even Norwich beat the reigning champions theres been no pre season to compare to a normal year hence lack of form, and there are still 2 new signings at 70 mill quid to take their places same points haul at this time last year we made Top 4; chill long way to go

    Mason Mount

    If some Chelsea fans can't understand why he starts then they aren't watching close enough. Without him today, we don't get 3 goals, I would be suprised if we even got one. Just because he isn't always trying to be flashy, it doesn't mean he isn't one of our key players. You can't underestimate just how much he dictates the tempo of our attacks. He isn't just running around like a headless chicken, he's forcing things to happen, he's making the opposition work and making it difficult for them. The rest of the team need to look at him as an example of how to approach a game of football. I

  6. Was important not to lose. After today you've got Mendy, Chilwell and Pulisic to come into the team and hopefully Ziyech isn't to far behind. Silva got another start under his belt and Havertz now looks match fit. We got away with one today but there's plenty of reason to feel optimistic that these sorts of games should be few and far between going forwards. The new signings were never going to be an overnight fix and that's proving the case, especially with fitness problems thrown in. It's still early days so I'm not going to read too much into performances just

  8. Christensen is now one of those players that gets blamed even when it’s nothing to do with him.

  9. f**king hell, I knew it wouldn’t take long before someone blamed the only defender who hasn’t made a massive mistake in the game 😂😂 the agenda against Christensen is embarrassing.

  10. Frank deserves credit after turning it around. A horror story of errors and missed chances in the first. The Azpi change made sense to me as Alonso was being targeted. Mount deserves credit for that opening goal, a great goal for me. CHO looked forlost on the Right again yet improved massively after moving to the left and the 1-2 with Havertz was good to see as was the goal. First time in a while CHO has looked EPL standard for me. James was busy putting in crosses yet his corners were woeful, has he caught Willianitis? Thankfully Mount has not. Werner bu

    Andreas Christensen

    A bit embarrassing seeing the reactions he got before the game had even started. Great performance today, one of the few that can walk away with his head held high. I'm sure someone will say something along the lines of "it was only West Brom" though.

  13. He was our best defender today.

  14. I know, I am not saying otherwise. Performances have been disastrous and both the players and the manager need to have a hard look at themselves. My point was that Frank needs time, people asking for him to be fired is just ridiculous if I'm being honest.

  15. To come back from a 3 goal deficit is an achievement of its own.

  16. It doesn't matter who is in goal, the defence as a whole is the problem. We allow so many chances on goal, its no wonder we concede so many. Nothing is changing, what the f**k are they being coached to do?

  17. I think it was; he was moving into pockets of space but no one was smart enough to pick him up. Kante was getting into the dangerous areas in the opposition box, and was the wrong player you want in those situations for a 1-2.

  22. Point is not good enough against a championship level side. Great comeback in the end but our own mistakes from players and manager are still damaging us. It needs sorted pronto because we will be breaking records again this season.... And not good ones

  24. The old adage "don't change a winning team" springs to mind ... every game we seem to have a new line up and a new formation ... no wonder it doesn't work ...

  25. Showed a lot of good touches today, involved in our best moves without being spectacular. Consistently taking up good positions between the lines and always showing for the ball. Ironically Frank's change of tactic after he assisted the second goal possibly took away the space he craves. He's going to be an important player for us once he becomes more acquainted to his teammates.

  27. His link up, movement and passing are a level above Barkley's.

  28. I love his link up play, his passing, the way he finds space between the line and manages to ghost into dangerous scoring positions. He's also not bad at shielding the ball in build up play. Having said that it's obvious that he's a team player. He can interplay with his team mates, he makes smart runs, so he will always be a goal threat when he gets played in, but he isn't somone who will take the game by the scruff of the neck like Pulisic or Hazard and score a goal from a great individual action. So to get the best out of him, we need to play well as a team. The beauty of having him though

  29. I’m going to say what everyone is thinking even if they push it out of their heads because of loyalty and optimism....this job has come too early in franks career. He has attributes to be a great manager but he is still a bit naive and with the money spent and the talent in the squad he is going to need to get results or its not going to last. We all want him to do well and the story is romantic but if that will translate into reality...we shall see, I hope so but the flaws are clear.

  30. This first half was horrendous but surely we have to appreciate that this team reacted straight away and not only next Tuesday. Coming back from 0-3 in 45 minutes is almost impossible because scoring a goal is twice as hard against a side that's only there to defend, counter and waste time than in an open game. The team showed real morale today, if this is what the lowpoints of a season in transition are gonna look like I'll take it.

  32. You're a great dude cRyptic, but we can't let that paper over the cracks, that was a terrible performance today and getting a point is not something to be proud of here, we should've won this.

  33. Comeback or not, that is a terrible result. I am fuming. WBA barely have one player that's PL-standard and are going to go down with record low in points or close to that. To come away with a single point against that, not good enough at all.

  34. Look, I'm delighted we came back, but I'm not going to let that paper over the cracks. We were f**king woeful today, and we shouldn't be getting just a point from this game.

  38. James is starting to look a defensive liability and needs to be dropped for Dave. He was at fault for two of the goals. Need Chilwell fit as soon as possible because Alonso isnt up to it. Mendy is going to walk into the starting XI. Anyone saying we don't need Declan Rice. The performance from the two holding player today tells you exactly why we're in the market for a dedicated defensive midfielder. People keep bemoaning Lampard picking Mount. He's our best player out there today and the other 10 starters could learn a thing or two from him.

  39. I'm starting to get annoyed with Frank's so-called fluid front 4. We interchange positions so much everyone is rotating their time on the ball and their positions. We always threaten to attack only to pass it backwards and sideways until the opponent gets a good tackle in and cuts through us like butter.

  41. 100% I get Frank is a legend and we need to stick with him but we can't just sit and pretend there isn't a very serious issue here that is damaging the club. If Frank and his team can't fix the comical defending then they either need to find some new coaching staff or we all know how this is going to end.

  42. Been saying for ages, we need a world class defensive coach, Jodie and Frank and even the new guy that just came on board are f**king clueless....most of our defenders for the last 2 seasons have been, or are internationals..you don't get to play international football for being pants; its the coaching and the tactics that are mostly wrong.

  43. What the f**k is going on? Why on earth is there so much space between the midfield and the forward line? Kanté and Kovacic aren't Fabregas, how are they going to get the ball forward? We look absolutely atrocious.

  44. Sorry but Frank's had a whole year to sort this defence and he's failed Big time. Doesn't matter the players we bring in if the coaching is abysmal.

  45. That was my issue with it. The penatly decision was correct, but where did they get that added time from? United fans are as usual coming out with all of the excuses and saying the celebrations are the reason for the added time, but the goal was scored right near the end of added time and they still manage to find an extra minute and a half to add on. You can be certain that if this was the other way around, the final whistle would have blown after the equaliser.
