    Official Thomas Tuchel

    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

  2. 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

    We controlled the game with it. That sure counts for something. Completely dominated them and they didn't even have a sniff. Came away with a fantastic result against one of the top sides in Europe which leaves us with a great chance to progress againt the odds.

    Official Thomas Tuchel

    We controlled the game but created barely any chances against a team sitting deep, that pretty much sums up the entirety of Tuchels time here so far. Like I said a very good European away win, thats all you need to do in the away leg of a tie. Not lose, score an away goal. That doesnt mean everything was perfect, as once again our attack was pretty rubbish, we didnt open them up and when we did we just turned round and went backwards, a lot. I dont know if its the instruction's from Tuchel, or our players are just cowards but we are far too safe with our play, barely trying anything that would

    Mason Mount

    We are going to massively miss Mount in the return leg, he brings a lot of energy, creativity and forward impetus to our attack, pretty much the only one that does from deep. Havertz will likely replace him in the team but he needs to really hit some form to get anywhere near he impact on the team Mount does.

  6. He’s the highest paid manager in La Liga and one of the highest in the world. That said I don’t like their style. And yes the lead is narrow but in no sense was it less than we deserved. In this game we were thoroughly competitive and looked as if we belonged in Europe. We played European style against a top team, matched them and won the game. We will be under pressure at the Bridge and we always have a mistake in us, but it’s a pretty good team Chelsea.

  8. 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

    I tell you seeing Mason develop game after game is the best thing in watching us at the mo. Has to be our next captain. Top quality again.

    I cannot possibly think who that's aimed at slojo. I think for the record Tommy is doing a great job and I fully support him. Three weeks time I will have probably changed my mind. Another three weeks I'll change it back again.

    We will Gol. All of them are either dead or in their 70s and 80s. Probably still quicker than Jorginho though.

  13. But let me guess, before the game you said this is his first big test? Give some credit where it's due, we just made one of the best sides in Europe look like a Championship team. Any goal conceded can be seen as a "mistake", we were constantly in their box, something was bound to happen eventually and it did, they paid the price.

    Andreas Christensen

    I think the biggest compliment I can give to Christensen is that if Silva was playing instead, I don’t think there would have been a huge difference. That alone is a huge compliment imo because Silva is one of the world’s best defenders. Fantastic performance.

  15. What gets lost on Alonso and Jorginho is they both have such a clean first touch, I love how often he handles bad passes and turns them into good situations. He was my MotM, I was the only one, but most of our best build up play went through him, the cross to Mount - that Mount couldn't decide wether to recross or shoot ,and the cross for OG's goal were both nice, and I think comparing him to CHO yesterday shows how efficient Alonso is, while CHO is faster, he's hard to pass to, Alonso makes clean runs with a clean first touch, CHO shows a run and then changes it slightly and thus gets some

  18. Well we won last night but I didn't think he had a good game at all. Pretty much agree with the comments and rating I read on Football London this morning. "Passing was sloppy for the majority. Improved in the second half but will miss the second leg after picking up a booking after the break. 6"

  23. If Mount was playing for Madrid, Bayern or even Leverkusen, every single Chelsea fan would be praying we signed him. It's completely bizarre why not all our fans think the guys class.

  24. 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

    He just brings so much to the team in attack, I honestly think he's currently the player we will miss the most if he doesn't play. The fact we can say that about an academy graduate is brilliant.

  27. On November 30th Traffic Light, sorry slojo wrote: "lot of people say Lampard gets too much protection on here, but I don't think he does. I remember after the Spurs game, a game we only lost on penalties people mind. But people on here were suicidal after that. One of the worst I've seen it on the forum, so many of them wanted him gone on the spot after that game. I said before the season started, if we are still conceding the same amount of goals, we will have to start asking serious questions. But since Mendy, Silva and Chilwell have arrived and playing together we've had the best

  29. It's actually ridiculous isn't it? Every bloody game Tuchel's played so far has been a real test, every win a massive achievement. And before that the same applied to Frank. He arrives here mid season at a new club and new league, has to pull everyone out of the slump while playing a game every 3 days. And people act games against Wolves, Burnley, Sheffield, Newcastle and Southampton should simply be obvious victories, and I guess Tottenham too at their current form. It's like some of these people have never watched a season of Premier League football. Sometimes I think thank go

  31. I hope so, when he first came and after watching a lot of his videos his passing range and vision looked absolutely sublime, criminally underrated even. Lately it doesn't look like the real Ziyech to me. When he first came he looked the real deal, we need that man back. Because I honestly think that Ziyech is our best passer and creative player by far.

  33. This thread has been lacking my uninformed opinion, imo, and I agree pretty much with dkw. We're talking about transfers fees usually worth massive amounts of money, so there's bound to be some kind of committee process that involves feedback from scouts, coaching staff and various directors, where they identify immediate needs and long term investments, and players will be shortlisted and prioritised based on transfer fee, urgency, long-term value (including potential resell/loan profits), etc,. Granovskaia may or may not be the head of this committee, but no way is she identifying the transf

  38. Fantastic result. After a shaky start, we defended really well. We kept going, kept our concentration, got a great goal and saw the game out. Really disappointed that Mount and Jorginho will be missing for the return leg. Thought they were our best players. Going to be tough without them. Wasn’t expecting that good a performance to be fair, but that was a really professional and disciplined display. Christensen, Rudiger and Alonso at the back were terrific. Never thought I’d say that a month ago.

  41. Mount for me. Given his early booking it would have been easy for a young player to panic and go into his shell but he did the opposite. Kept his performance high bit played with a discipline that you wouldn't expect from a player of his age.
