  1. So the best a world class manager could do is equal Lampard, interesting. Then get given £250m to spend, yeah no ones taking that job. Who is this world class manager we're going to replace Frank with anyway, Rodgers, Nagelsmann, or Hasenhuttl? I guess being Chelsea manager would be a blemish on their glittering C.V's. And who were Chelseas top candidates for the job that then turned us down before we where left with Lampard? Or did we not bother asking cause we knew we where such a sh*t option even Big Sam wouldn't have got out of bed for to answer the phone call. You're making out li
  2. Where is this nonsense that no manager would have taken the Chelsea job come from? There would have been loads of managers willing to take the roll, we are one of the biggest clubs in world. A transfer ban is not going to deter most managers in fact it would have given them a season with low expectations and less pressure and in no way career ending. Most of the managers we are currently linked aren't exactly elite level managers and would most likely of taken the job. I mean it's not like Leicester, Southampton, and Leipzig can compete with us in the transfer window, we out spent them all
  3. Thing is we will happily play a young player like Reece James and when he makes mistakes like last night, we will say he will learn from it and we persevere to play him knowing all the experience he gains will help him become a better player. How come a young inexperienced manager isn't afford the same luxury? You cant become a top manager without going through some sh*t times, its how we come out of it that matters. If the board thought it would be all rosey after giving the managers job to a manager with 1 year of experience then they need sacking first.
  4. Roman and the board could easily have appointed an experienced manager, but they didn't they went with Frank. If they're aren't willing to give him more time what the hell were they thinking in the first place. The leagues congested at the moment, we are closer to the top than we've been in ages, I mean you can't believe the likes of Man Utd, Villa, and Leicester are going to continue this run of form till the end of the season. They are bound to get dips in form and we will get back to winning ways, that's how football works. It sounds like some of you think its already mathematical
  5. The moment we appointed Frank we all seemed to agree that for this to work we needed to give him time to grow as a manager, and instant success was unlikely. We had to maybe make sacrifices like trophies, CL qualification and that we may hit some bad patches along the way before we saw improvements. This is exactly what you have to expect when you have an inexperienced manager, if we are not willing to ride out the bad times why on earth did we appoint an inexperienced manager to begin with? If we don't see this through then it was a pointless experiment that we did even give a chance.
  6. Can’t believe I’ve nearly lost my voice shouting at the TV.
  7. If we’re lucky one day Klopp can get Liverpool playing football as good as Franks Chelsea.
  8. I just think we're too easy to play against right now, the lack of attacking threat and slow passing gives the opposition confidence to commit more players knowing we won't punish them with a quick counter, theres no fear factor. It amazes me how a team with such pace up top doesn't have any counter attacking ability at all, I can't remember how many times the counter attack is on and we don't commit any players to support the player in possession and we just end up passing backwards to the centre backs. Most players are standing still or just jogging when receiving the ball, its possession
  9. Footballs rubbish anyway, I’m watching worlds strongest man instead
  10. I think mainly because we end up with a set front 3 with no real movement or rotation, apart from the out of ideas swapping of wingers. If we are to play with Giroud surely Werner needs to be close by to collect flick ons and play 1-2's, rather than playing really wide and isolated. I mean isn't this one of Girouds main strengths on top of heading from crosses?
  11. I think the main issue is we're not playing to his strengths. I've noticed many times when Werner would make a good run in behind and no-one would even noticed it, currently we just seem to recycle the ball until a crossing opportunity occurs then aim for Girouds head. I distinctively remember him last night swivelling in behind and James just turning back and passing backwards like as if the cross to Giroud isn't on we must try the opposite flank. I maybe wrong but didn't we mix up our play more earlier in the season? It seems since Girouds 4 goals all we do is cross to Giroud no matter w
  12. Interesting. Well Liverpool always getting an easy draw every year! Jammy Scouser's.
  13. Well that's a relief. We all know how Morata can change a game in an instant.
  14. I think the only think we need to worry about really is if Morata brings his A game, then we're in deep trouble.
  15. I have to say I'm starting to fall in love with Thiago Silva, who said he was too old!?
  16. Awesome. I’m jealous it must have been incredible.
  17. Something a bit more recent. Myles Kennedy 2 for the price of one.
  18. Only just discovered this part of the forum. Some great songs here. Feel I need to contribute. This is a song thats been stuck in my head for the last few days.
  19. It would be quite funny if Marina manages to buy Sancho for around £90 million next season, making Woodward look even more of a clueless prat.
  20. Wait a minute there’s an ignore list?! Tell me how this magic works? Well that’s if you can see this, and I’m not on your substantially large sounding ignore list.
