  1. Well, this is it, folks. The starting XI’s exactly what I would’ve picked. Remember 2012. Keep the faith no matter what. Good luck us. COME ON, CHELSEA 💙
  2. So little different to comparing shots on target to the final score then? It’s the type of “stat” Wenger’s later Arsenal teams would w**k off over. A moral victory to demonstrate footballing superiority - but that, ultimately, counts for nothing.
  3. I wish people would stop looking at xG as if it holds value. You don’t need a fake stat to represent how a game “should” have gone - the ball either goes in the net or it doesn’t.
  4. A fair point. At the very least we had Lamps and Drogba, seasoned winners, there to set the standard. I look at our current squad and I’m not sure I can name a single player I’d rely on to inspire a victory if things aren’t going our way.
  5. Ironic we’d be bailed out by the ultimate bottlers after fluffing a cup final and sh*tting the bed in the last league game ourselves. There’s a mentality issue in this squad and the manager doesn’t have answers when we go behind. I refuse to comment on the CL Final as our 2012 CL Final starting XI was very, very poor and we all know how that turned out. How the players take this result will be a big factor in the outcome next Saturday.
  6. Did you even read the second half of my comment? That’s exactly what I’d do.
  7. Sorry, don’t agree. Every chance that goes in otherwise. I don’t see why giving a penalty and not booking the defending player (as it’s obviously unintentional) isn’t an option.
  8. This is the forgotten problem from finishing 5th. Seriously diminishes our chances of attracting the very best, regardless of what cash we have.
  9. Anyone else having serious doubts about TT going forward? We’ve been behind 3 times in the last 4 games and he still doesn’t have an answer.
  10. We’re in serious trouble here. If Villa decide to park the bus I’m not sure we have the ability to break them down. Let’s see if TT has learned any lessons from the Arsenal and Cup Final games…
  11. Oh and, by the way, if City ever needed a blueprint on how to beat us, the last two games have just shown it. Just have to hope Pep remains arrogant and puts the tiki taka philosophy ahead of grinding out a 1-0.
  12. We were average at best today but Tuchel has to take the majority of the blame for this one. Yes, I get it’s nice and sentimental playing second string players who got us to this point but what does it count for if you lose? f**k all. Play your best team and if they get beat, so be it.
  13. Spot on. Jorginho, much like the manager who signed him, is far too one dimensional for the very top tier.
  14. Lampard played nearly every game in a West Ham side that finished 5th in the Prem and Harry Kane scored one-in-three at Championship Millwall. CHO plays for one of the strongest teams in the country and still produces nothing. I couldn’t name you a single game where I came away thinking he really improved us. Maybe he will improve in future or maybe he’s just not that good.
  15. Ah yes, because no player can actually make an impact before they reach 20, right? Billy Gilmour’s in the same team, played one fifth of the games Callum has and been infinitely better. CHO is average, wise up.
  16. A Chelsea manager is hardly going to go into a presser and say he’s sh*t, are they? It’s all fluff. He’s been “potential” for 4 years now. If he really was such a big talent there’d have been more interest than just Bayern for a single summer.
  17. How about ANYTHING. Lost count of the many times people here moan that he should be starting, only for him to come on and do absolutely f**k all. He’s average. We should cash him in (along with a few others) this summer and buy a real top quality forward.
  18. Dare I tempt fate and say shades of the 2011/12 campaign? Change of manager mid-season. An FA cup final. Solid performances in Europe followed by bafflingly average PL results. It couldn’t happen again, could it?
  19. Hopefully not. It’s beggars belief Billy Gilmour hasn’t had a kick in weeks while Jorginho pulls a consistent 5/10 performance.
  20. What is going on this last 10 minutes? We’ve been all over the place making basic mistakes. Has to be one of the worst halves all season.
  21. Where has this Havertz been all season? That was ridiculous technique and deserved a goal.
  22. That’s a cracking goal from West Brom tbf. Oh well, no points today. Tuchel has big questions to answer.
  23. Not a chance. I recall Morata having a run of ~10 one-on-ones with the keeper and scoring no goals. Werner is clumsier but I can’t see him doing that.
  24. Behave, he’s not even the worst finisher of the last 3 years. Morata had me tearing my hair out.
  25. Truth is this has been a long time coming. People keep praising our squad depth but really we have a lot of players who give 6/10 performances and rarely any more. Jorginho, Kepa, Alonso, CHO and Tammy are not good enough to be starting for Chelsea and the summer signings haven’t set the world alight either. How Jorginho is still on the park after that first 45 I will never know.
