  1. Our defense have improved massively since last season and bar the odd mistake we look very stable at the back. Soon enough I think we'll start beating the rest of the "top 6 sides".
  2. Last season that would not have happened. Progress in some sense.
  3. I think it all boils down to the fact that we lack leadership and authority in the central defense. This is because among our CBs there are no leaders and Kepa is certainly of no help either in that depertment.
  4. This, I don't think we need a complete overhaul in the defensive line if we can just bring in some stability. I think Zouma and Christensen are good enough but they need a more stable player around to really shine - think of it as our Virgil Van Dijk. Also, a keeper that doesn't throw balls in our own net would be most welcome. I was hoping that Rüdiger would stabilize our defense. But sadly, I don't think he's good enough for us.
  5. Yeah, that's just bizarre. Not anything new really, but the implementation of VAR is a farce.
  6. Was the Kovavic second yellow checked by VAR or does that only apply for direct reds? If it actually was checked, that's bewildering. Sometimes I just wish we'd be more pragmatic. Up 1-0 and playing against Arsenal who has very quick players - maybe we don't need to play that high line? It's just asking for trouble with our slow and suspect defense.
  7. Unbelievable game. Everything that could have gone wrong went wrong.
  8. My livescore app says 0-9 fouls commited - can that be right? Ridiculous.
  9. If we needed to win, but now we can even afford to concede 2. Also, as Wolves needs to win, can't see us not scoring at least another goal on the counter.
  10. A draw is enough for top four. If United picks up a win against Leicester it's also settled, but I'll not count on that. To date, Frank's most important game as Chelsea manager. Hopefully he'll not make the mistake of putting Pulisic on the bench again.
  11. Yes. But I hope the plan will not be to just get a draw - that spells trouble.
  12. Yeah, that's enough for me. The only positive from tonight is that our goal difference won't matter the final day anyway.
  13. All we need now is 1 point from 2 games. 1. Single. Point.
  14. So Blades went on holiday after battering us and has not scored a goal since. Standard.
  15. Assuming United pick up a win against Hammers, then we have these scenarios from this game and consequences for the final game: Win: Top four is ours whatever the result against Wolves. Draw: Top four is ours if Leicester either lose or draw against United, whatever the result against Wolves. If Leicester pick up a win, we also need to win against Wolves. Loss: Top four is ours if we match our result against Wolves with Leicester's result against United.
  16. This is great. In our own hands the final day whatever the result might be in Liverpool and there's even the possibility now that we can make top four even without picking up another point.
  17. We don't need anything from the Liverpool game if Foxes manages at most a draw against Spurs. In that case: United - 65 Foxes - 63 Us - 63 They get past us on goal difference. However, it will be in our hands the final day and if we win we are guaranteed a top 4 finish.
  18. Most boring Chelsea game I have ever watched. Happy for the three points, but that was as dull as it gets.
  19. Not quite. If we get 66 points total, Leicester and United might both have 65 points the final day. If they draw, they also have 66 and they move past us because of better goal difference. They both need to win all their games though, so 6 points would probably be sufficient.
  20. Not going to happen, their form is too good and they play well. Our best route to CL is if we do better than Leicester the last 3 games or City's ban gets upheld.
  21. The only way we will be able to make CL playing like this is if CAS rules against City on Monday.
  22. Let's assume United win their next game. Then: Us - 60 Foxes - 59 Utd - 58 If they manage to not drop any points until the final round: Foxes - 68 Utd - 67 For the final game, different outcomes: 1 - 71, 68 X: 69, 68, 2: 68, 70. So in conclusion, if we manage to win three out of our remaining games we get top 4 whatever our opponents do.
  23. So happy, but I'm also fuming. VAR is a complete farce, almost screwed us over once again!
