  1. I think this whole motivation/revenge is a fan thing as I can’t believe this bunch of players are motivated in any way by thoughts of ‘revenge’ even those who played in the game ... sorry ... more worrying are reports in today’s paper that we are thinking of signing Higuain and Kovachik permanently! Please tell me that’s not possible....
  2. So this is what it’s come to ... every cliche in the book - ‘we gave them a good run for their money,’ ‘ if Eden hadn’t hit the post,’ ‘can’t do anything about a wonder goal’, ‘at least not losing 6-0 shows improvement,’ ‘offside’, ‘we had a game only 3 days before’ ...... Two years ago we won the league and now we’re making excuses for not getting mullered by the potential champions! leaving aside Sarri’s appalling management, how many of our players would be regular starters in another top 6 side, other than Hazard and Kante? In today’s paper there’s an advert for VIP tickets for the Euro game with a photo featuring Chelsea ‘stars’ Willian, Pedro and Giroud .... enough said!
  3. ... and a word of praise for RLC who had a very good game, I thought. He is one tough hombre with skill and power in his locker. He could be the man next season.
  4. I had a lightbulb moment during this game, and I don’t mean turning off the light and sitting in a darkened room as soon as I saw that Jorginho and Kovachik were playing .... again! No, it occurred when Azpi received the ball for the umpteenth time in a dangerous position with loads of space and time in their half, and I realised that’s exactly what our opponents want as they know nothing is going to happen! He either crosses into the box where we have one ineffectual striker waiting for it, or he recycles across the box to the left side where it happens again until ... nothing happens! Not his fault, but there has to be an alternative way of mounting an attack against a block defence ... I suppose better players might be the answer ... I think we may already have them but they can’t get into this side!!!
  5. Everyone on this forum knew for sure that he was going to bring on Willian for Pedro, and then Ross for Kova ... so far so bad ... but I think he signed his death warrant with the fans by bringing on a FB for an FB when we needed to do SOMETHING!
  6. I think the low point of the season was 0-4 to Bournemouth so a 0-6 mullering by City can only be seen as an improvement! Keep your peckers up Chelsea fans!
  7. I haven’t really seen enough of Higuain to make any comment, but I have little trust in Sarri’s judgement as a talent spotter - Jorginho, Kovachic and even Kepa are hardly ringing endorsements. Also, I’ve posted before about our recruitment of strikers who are past their best, e.g. Sheva, Torres, etc.
  8. Just got home after a thoroughly miserable afternoon at the Emirates .... what can be worse than sitting with a bunch of celebrating Gooners when you know you’re never going to score even if we were still playing! I lost count of the times I turned to my mate when we were on the “attack” (duh!) and said “he doesn’t have a clue what to do with it” when any one of our players was on the ball! Alonso? Give me a break ... clueless, useless and anything else ending in “less”! Jorghino ... might have been good in Italy, and may even come good here, but right now he should not be in the team ... simples! Pedrillian? Two identically useless players except one smiles and one snarls! Kovachic? What’s that all about? The only positive from today will hopefully be that Sarri has to realise that this team is no good and cannot score goals. How do we win on Thursday if we can’t score? I can’t see Higuan making that much difference but we fans always live in hope ...
  9. So much for “Sarri-ball” and “playing out from the back” when one decent long ball from Luiz and we score! Our football is as predictable as the result of this shambles!
  10. Alonso is so poor ... why is he getting pelters from the Spurs fans ... hardly with the effort!
  11. CHO has to play and has to stay ... please! Pedro/Willian have had their time ... they are not the future ... Sarri must see this, surely ...
  12. I’d really like to see Emerson get a run, plus CHO, also Ethan who I thought looked really good. Sometimes you need a change just for changes sake ....
  13. It’s totally irrelevant whether Chelsea fans saw any potential in KDB or not ... the point is that his potential was totally missed by the people being paid to judge talent and potential. Whoever signed KDB from us could see it so why didn’t any of our highly-paid staff notice it, particularly as they saw him in training and not in the occasional match. Salah was crap for us and I’m also not convinced about him anyway, but our handling of KDB was just poor ....
  14. Oh mate, you have so nailed it! Reading your post so much better than watching CFC!
