    Sarri's system, Jorginho and our progress

    Presumably you are not talking about last night's play? I've seen funeral corteges move faster than the interminable efforts last night. Super slow and lacking any fizz whatsoever. I've even gotten to the point where I get very excited when, following an opposition attack, Kepa grabs the ball and charges to the edge of the penalty area full of purpose and then, in one anti-climatic moment, he stops, clings to the ball like a long-lost lover, and then waits for the opposition to get back into position, likewise for us and then, when everyone is nice and ready he throws/kicks it to a defender (using the term loosely) and off we go with our set play piece of shuffling the ball around the box whilst hapless sod from the opposition tries to lamely get the ball etc etc. And then my despondency sets in yet again.
  2. Not a trick question but is this really the much vaunted and hyped up Sarriball? Please tell me it is not so.

    Maurizio Sarri Officially Appointed

    Oh the irony... just like we are doing today.
  4. Dross. Can we not get Barclay and Giroud on?

    Ruben Loftus-Cheek

    He was *iss poor today when he came on - running around like a big half-hearted floppy rag doll. No commitment to making tackles. Not going to ever be a Chelsea great.
  6. You expect Hazard to score in every game right?? No, but 0.5 which is his current average (although it drops to zero over the last couple of months) is hardly stellar for someone alleged to be up there with the gods of European Football. I'm tired tbh of his mazey runs that have no end product and simply slow down any attacking move
  7. No, I'm not being 'silly'. When he's good he's very very good. But more often than not he's not really at the races. How many times has he been out of form since he's been here? I've lost count tbh. He's hardly the reliable player that can constitute part of the spine of our team week after week. Too many people look at him with rose tinted glasses imo.
  8. Just checked and Hazard is currently at 0.5 goals a match and 0.33 assists a match. Although he hasn't scored in the PL for around a couple of months now. Not exactly top of the world form is it. Just needs to go - he doesn't want to be here.
  9. Dross of the first order. Not one player stood out for me. Same problem re striker. Same old same old pass left pass right pass back pass every direction except towards the frigging goal. Is Kepa really a £70m keeper? - he doesn't look top dollar to me. Hazard is a joke, usual running around looking great but when did he last score. RM can have him for all I care. Losing faith in Sarri too. Glad I never went tonight too.
  10. Well, I hope that this incident and yesterday's Southampton incident finally shut the VAR naysayers up.

  12. Candidate for worst opening post of the year?
  13. At least we won - and on a cold and misty night too which are not exactly great playing conditions. Definitely the B team playing with a touch of A - there were players out there last night that are ok as sub's but playing collectively they are a disaster. Last night the back four were shambolic at times. I did feel for Cahill at one point who was at least trying to organise the back four especially when we were defending a deep in our half free kick when, despite Cahill's insistent pleadings for Christenson to get into position, the lad seemed to turn deaf and was shuffling around like a headless chicken. Barcley & RLC looked hapless imo - the former at least tried but the latter looked like he was a fish out of water and knew it and promptly gave up trying. I've a long way to go to be convinced by RLC. Why we want to get rid of Willian is beyond me. He gets stuck in every match, pulls the opposition defence to pieces at times, provides assists and scores the occasional goal. Decent player imo and if he turns out to be good enough for Barcelona then he's surely good enough for us.
  14. He was a sour bar steward for sure. Hard done by - haha!
