  1. Thank goodness for that! Excellent cross by Pulisic and Giroud to finish it, so needed that breakthrough. A bit of relief before half-time, but need to improve more second half.
  2. Yeah, it's an embarrasment. Only 7 clean sheets this season so far, so only about 1 in 5 of our games do we not concede! It's so poor. The performance by our defence is typically at a lower mid-table level or worse this season, the signs been there a long time of the problems since early this season, really disappointing so little done to rectify these glaring defensive issues sooner.
  3. Well played Scott, so close to the perfect prediction!
  4. It's looking increasingly like being a 4-way fight for top 4, with us, United, Leicester and Wolves. Leicester are really slumping and being pulled back into it a lot now, and they have tough fixtures. We have better form recently but still some tough fixtures too. Meanwhile both United and Wolves are chasing but have the more favourable fixtures generally. Looking like gonna be close, but I think we have a good chance, fairly confident - a good result this week would enhance that even more.
  5. Yeah exactly they can't claim it was just the interruption to the season that affected their form, they were already struggling quite a lot beforehand. They have had a lot of close wins too throughout the season so far, I just checked and I think they have only won six games this season by a margin of more than 2 goals - even with our hit and miss form this season, we have won 4 games this season by a margin of more than 2 goals. I know grinding out close wins is a sign of champions, but Liverpool just haven't been convincing or impressive in performances on a lot of occasions this season
  6. So Liverpool continue to limp towards the title - they will almost certainly win it this season, but they have been poor and lacklustre recently, and rarely having that many impressive performances this season, even compared to the previous season. Don't expect them to stroll it next season.
  7. Important win, disappointed that 1st half showed up our problems against lower table teams yet again, but a quick two goals around the hour mark to turn it around in the 2nd half, and then see the match out till the full-time whistle, very glad of it! Overall really relieved and pleased with the result, performance far from our best, but grinding out a win is especially important at this point in the season, and with the long interruption we had recent months, quite a few other teams struggling for form with the restart, so good to get the 3 points today.
  8. Leicester away in the quarter-finals again then, same as 2 years ago in March 2018, hopefully a good omen as we won the FA Cup that season! I was at that quarter-final away at Leicester back 2 years ago, was a close match but we edged it in extra time, think Leicester with their recent slump in form generally are very beatable now too so cautiously optimistic we can do them again.
  9. Top set of matches that, gotta agree that would be the best for us+likely to be most entertaining set of quarter-finals possible this year
  10. Stand out performance tonight, really announced himself with his performance showing what he can do on a big stage in this match, brilliant to watch. Such a talent with real potential to go far, so looking forward to seeing more from him, and love especially that he is in blue!
  11. YES! Fantastic, a great win absolutely love it! Say bye-bye to the FA Cup to the overrated scouse so-called best team in the land currently, shown up yet again as their luck has run out in recent weeks! And with a deserved win by our lads from a strong performance so good to see, lots of really good effort and determination and skill, but best of all young Billy Gilmour, what an incredibly promising talent, looking foward to seeing much more from him! Anyway a great night of football, and the boys in blue go on to quarter-finals! BLUE IS THE COLOUR, LOVE YOU CHELSEA!
  12. Unbelievable, should have been 3 and game done
  13. Won't ease up on nerves till the whistle - unless we get another meantime!
  14. What a run and what a strike, love it, a gift from a Mersey blue turned Chelsea blue, against the reds we both hate, brilliant love it!
  15. Oooh so close Mount! Strong strike just needed that bit of extra dip to get under the crossbar!
