  1. Correct. Liverpool lost 2-7 to Villa, a couple of weeks later Villa lost 0-3 to Leeds and Leeds lost 2-6 to Man U. How much better than Liverpool must Man U be! We also beat Leeds and then lost to Wolves who are clearly worse than Burnley. Burnley are clearly the best team in the league! 😄 Hence proved.
  2. Oh, to have Pulisic and Ziyech regularly starting!
  3. How many times has this happened in the last 2 seasons? Shows how shallow these commentators are that they still fall for it. As long as this keeps Ole at the wheel 🙂
  4. Simple as that. Why all the premature panic and long tense posts? It's unfortunate that you cannot make the rational inference based on evidence (or the lack of it) and just say " Let's wait and see, he had a good record in Germany, Frank's not an idiot and can probably judge the potential of a footballer, our coaching staff aren't a bunch of idiots and see many things we cannot, this isn't the first player to struggle at the start (see Salah, de Bruyne and so many others), etc.". You may think that this constant premature moaning (match chat or otherwise) doesn't do anything but it obvio
  5. Well said. While Havertz surely doesn't read this forum, this is probably a microcosm of the mood of fans. And this tension will soon reflect on to the players. Why do we have to be tense in the slightest here? We can afford to lose a few games for the greater good. Maybe there is no greater good but I'm pretty sure we have less experience and less evidence to judge this player compared to Frank and the rest of the staff at Chelsea. So of course they can make mistakes but now is not the time to judge whether this is a mistake.
  6. Sigh, Werner really needs to be benched while he regains some confidence. We really need Ziyech back to some spark this team back to life.
  7. We have been really unlucky in the last 90 mins or so! Sometimes you need that little bit of luck, we just aren't getting it.
  8. Do listen Frank and get off Kai's back. He will come good but it's important that the pressure remains off whole he develops. Remember he is 21, in a new culture, league and style of play, during a season where physical demands are unusually high and he's just coming off COVID. If he doesn't come good anytime this entire season (yes, I am happy to give him a full season!), I will begin to worry. What he seems to have on his side, as do Mount and Werner, that is severely underrated is the ability to stay fit and avoid injuries.
  9. Even if we take a bit of hit, we must not rush Pulisic in. Agree that Havertz must play in the middle. Mount may actually be one of the best fit options we have down the wing. The other option is playing Azpi at right back and James down the right wing.
  10. Unreal is a bit of a hyperbole no 🙂 I recall he was 'good' and showed glimpses. But not up to the levels Havertz has already demonstrated. And I did mention 'touch' and 'movement' as well.
  11. Lukaku is too full of himself. As are players like Lacazette. Just can't stand their celebrations. Not even one person at our current team stands and looks around with that arrogance after scoring.
  12. Come on. RLC never had the touch, close control or movement that Havertz has already shown. Or this fine tuned understanding of space.
  13. Hmm, some people saying this was like last year's Chelsea. Don't think so at all... We were a bit flat but we were very cohesive for a team that's barely played together competitively. Our midfield left too much space too often but I felt that both Kova and Gilmour had instructions to try and attack as much as possible. So far from our best performance but one that showed even our 2nd/3rd string can dominate a 3rd place outfit in the Champions League.
  14. Don't agree about AC... had an excellent game. And aside from Thiago Silva, he's our only defender who can smoothly stride out with the ball and pass through the lines. Still a great talent for me and I have hopes that he will improve considerably this season under some able guidance.
  15. There's been some conversation about the racist incident in thread BTW, around half time.
