    Massively sub-standard performance, obviously.
    However, the players are only human, over the past couple of days or so, the majority of them wouldn’t even have known what competitions they’d be eligible for, not to mention the strong possibility that their collective international careers would be at an end. Stress or what? Stress can be massively draining, which would explain why, especially during the latter stages of the game, the Brighton players looked so much sharper.
    Also it’s just a few short days since the epic performance against Man City. Add this to the stress outlined above, and it’s little wonder that the players weren’t exactly at their best.
    So how about we write this one off, as another “at least we didn’t lose to that shower of sh*te” games, and look forward to a vastly improved performance, and a hopefully positive result against the Spammers.

    Really awful performance...this is becoming a recurring theme under Tuchel in matches we should be winning
    As good as we have been under Tommy, far too many bad performances against much lower ranked teams...can he tactically change a match?
    Havertz up top as a false 9 is very false...fails far too many times
    Why Zouma in the centre?
    Mount is not a pivot player, play him where he is effective or not at all
    As for Ziyech, hero to zero tonight . Our attack is very lightweight
    Do we really need to play three at the back all the time?

    Tommy does need to learn there are no easy matches , the points were dropped an hour before the kick off with poor team selection, not for the first time

    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?

    That was an appalling performance. Arguably the worst match of ours I've watched since the worst of Sarriball.
    Just prioritising pointless slow possession over any sort of attack. 
    Tinkerman Tuchel might have stabilised us and made us more defensively solid but at least Frank's team had a go.
    On a night Chelsea fans showed us the best of the club and a bit of passion, our players produced a limp performance when they had everything to play for.

    Not sure how much you can blame Tuchel for that.
    Every player looked extremely off. Mentally exhausted after the last 48 hours and everyone was absymal pretty much. 
    Valuable point in the end. Some of the lads didn't even look like footballers tonight. Like Mount, James, Zouma, Alonso and I could mention others as well.

    Honestly, I think we're getting a little soft on all fronts.  That was a disgraceful performance - in ability, attitude and decision making.  Actually pretty embarrassing and credit to West Brom.
    Could pick apart almost every facet of our team today.  95% is not enough in the PL, and that's generous to say we were even anywhere near 95% level today.

    3, 5 even 10 years ago, I would've been livid with this result. Now I honestly don't really care....Well I do but I kind of switch off and think "fcuk the sh*t over paid, over rated players, not letting them ruin my headspace".

    Lads I know we're disappointed and its going to take a while to forget but, its -3 goal difference and 3 points dropped. Are they crucial points I'll argue yes and no. We are still well and truly in the race for top 4 anyone can drop points at this stage.
    Are we likely to catch 3rd now maybe not. We still have 8 games and 24 points to play for. Even if the hammers win we stay above them on goal difference.
    We've been brought back down to earth after a 2 month period which we looked to be arguably the 2nd best team in the country. Look at the run of form we've had, the international break broke our momentum and now we have to start over again.
    It's on the players and TT now to make sure this is just a blip. We look ahead now to Porto with a renewed will to win.

    On the plus side, Rudiger, Chilwell, Emerson, Kante, Gilmour, Giroud, Abraham, Pulisic, Ziyech and Hudson-Odoi all had absolutely nothing to do with this debacle ... and so shouldn't have lost any confidence !

    I don't care about the red card that was just a disgraceful performance. Especially with us being 1-0 up first. We should have been more compact and sttopped f**king around with the ball in defence.
    Thiago Silva can go f**k himself 
    Tuchel has to show he has a plan b. It would have made more sense to switch to a back 4 and played 441 .

    a joke of a performance... it will help if the goalkeeper too stops a shot now and then... but boy have some players given us stinkers... Its the same pattern over and over again.. Lamps was very unlucky with injuries during his reign.. and then rotated too much.. tuchel makes some astonishing decisions.. 3 at the back against west brom.. when we are 10 down with Jorginho... plus the ref for some reason was enjoying this... Zouma cant play with AC everyone knows that bur our manager... Alonso is a fraud... 
    i dont think this squad can win anything just too many inconsistent performers.... you dont win leagues with these kind of players... who turn belly up after every 5-6 games...
