  1. I was sat with my boy in the 'family' area. Sheff Utd fans sounded pretty loud from there....thought they had a decent turn out. I normally sit MHL and amazing to hear how the chants from MH don't really travel to the other end of the ground unless very loud or the whole ground gets involved.
  2. Second half has left me so angry - having to sit through it, see and hear the momentum changing and yet no reaction from our team. We let them come onto us and couldn’t string two passes together apart from across the back four. We need more composure and understand when we need to take the sting out of the game. Appreciate that we have a young squad, but against lesser players, we should be easily seeing them off through 45 mins of football. And unexplainable substitutions in my view. Not going to go into all the subs, but quite how Pulisic stayed on for 90 mins is a mystery to me. Still 100% behind the boys but even in a transitional season, it’s got to be better than that.
  3. Agree entirely. Think we are seeing more from many of our midfielders, including Kovacic, which is encouraging. Lampard effect perhaps? Think and hope there is more to come from him
  4. Does anyone know if Kante is fit / match fit? I worry about us defensively still and not sure Kante will totally fix things, but we'll no doubt be better with him in the team. Some of the issues we have had are partly tactical (how we build attacks in our own half, then lose possession). Hopefully Lamps and team are addressing it. Want to see a convincing and composed performance against Sheff Utd on Saturday. Taking my boy for his first match. Come on Chels!
  5. There is still time to secure a deal but limited interest by the sounds of it, particularly if we are being picky. Its a shame but confidence looks shot and just looks like 'a swing and a miss' for us on him
  6. Good luck to him - seemed like a decent enough bloke and player, but if we are going to promote youth, we don't really need an experienced pro as a back up. I think it will take a lot for Lamps to replace Azpi so expect James may get his chance mainly in cups.
  7. CHO trained in full at the open session today and didn’t look off the pace at all. Seemed very sharp in drills and mini match. Rudiger also looked in good shape. Giroud was very on it. Limited stuff on show though as Lamps is wary of spies as we know... No Pedro or Kante training. Maybe just a rest for them?
  8. Totally agree - the review of every decision is painful and takes some of what we love out of the game in my opinion. A limited number of reviews that can be initiated by the team could be one option as you say, plus refs could ask the VAR crew to take a look. I agree with Nuno Espirito Santo. I have come to accept that it is going to have a place in the game, but please not a painstaking review of every decision. Go with the ref, unless someone challenges them.
  9. Feels like our system leaves all the back 4 exposed, especially when we lose possession in the middle of the park. Coupled with an iffy (or at best not established) centre back pairing, Azpi's steady decline looks steeper than it might be. Looked more compact against Liverpool but a bit wild again v Leicester
  10. CHO signing will be a welcome relief and if nothing else, Lamps will have got 3 of our youngest and brightest on long term deals. Should be careful not to put too much expectation on his shoulders though. He was promising in flashes last year, mostly against limited opposition. Expect he'll have his ups and downs this year just like the rest of the young team.
  11. Brilliant idea, thanks Munkworth. Sheffield United will be his first one
  12. Hi all, Long time member, but new to the forum and pleased to be a part of it. Am taking my 5 year old along with me for the first time this year! He's excited and I need to be more organised so I don't let him down...! Here's to an exciting (if nothing else) season ahead.
  13. Looking for 2 x tickets for Norwich away if possible. One adult, one junior, but will take two adult tickets. Thanks!
