    Clear handball there should have been a pen to us.

    Havertz and Jorgi have royally screwed us today.

    Triple sub at the break for me though it is too late as our finishing is so poor.

    CHO, Giroud and Ziyech on, Havertz, Jorgi and Pulisic off, James in to midfield.

    Yeah and who would have taken it ????

    Yep, he’d miss that as well.

    This Kepa situation is stressing me out. I just don’t understand why you’d risk top 4 and cup finals not picking your best player in goal. I know lots of teams do it, but most have more reliable back ups than Kepa. Makes us so much weaker from set pieces.

    I’m no Kepa fan, but imagine if Mendy gets injured before the CL final and Kepa had to play !!! 

    TT getting him match sharp and getting the defensive unit used to him too .

    Well MB, you’ve certainly been doing some homework ,nice one , you’ll be giving Gol15 a run for his money MB Stato, however given my lack of knowledge or awareness even , of cum socks, washed up or otherwise,  I feel unable to offer an opinion on that particular part ? but what I do think and I think you think that I think you think this too, is Pep fields a side to win games, pure a simple.

    Sometimes circumstances forces your hand in the players that play, but I don’t believe that Pep has ever fielded a side against us that he didn’t think was capable of winning in the semi final of the FA cup ffs !!!!! and in the game that gives him the PL title and bragging rights/confidence/mind games advantages before the CL final !! 

    I ain’t really having this a + b nonsense.

    He will be bothered imo.

    Sorry, I sent this before I was finished  - what I also meant to say is that Pep will be bothered, not just by the fact that we won, but it was the nature of the victory’s in both matches.

    He will realise, but for some shocking offside play by Werner x 2 and an unlucky offside with cho, we would have been 3 goals better off before that “I’ve seen ‘em given” penalty appeal against Zouma. We were the better team.

    In his private moments with his coaching team , he will have to admit that we were good value for both wins and that his team were second best on both occasions - he will be bothered, he doesn’t know how to beat us.

    Btw, I don’t know how he does it, but for a big man zouma has the knack of being able to stay on his feet in a challenge and I think that’s why it wasn’t a penalty and wasn’t given - it was only after the dwarf goes to ground that zouma does too, other than that he remains upright.

    Don't think that's right. We'd be on 67 and assuming Liverpool win all their games, they can still get to 69. Leciester would be on 72 if they win all theirs.

    The mancs play both Leicester (Tuesday) and the dippers (Thursday)  this week - assuming they win both and we beat them south London c**ts , then barring a massive goal difference shift, we are guaranteed 4th. Makes our last two games dead rubbers to some extent with no need to risk players before CL final.

    who are we missing? mahrez and walker ( and i would argue the latter is nothing more then a washed up cum sock). 

    i agree that neither time were they at full strength but that does not mean that we only played their B team both times. it is not a b team if their biggest players have played

    He has played a couple of games recently , v Palace and v Fulham, where he looked useful and I began to think that there was something to this furore that has existed around him before joining Chelsea, but last night I thought he was sensational - maybe I’m getting carried away with the emotion of the win and I will re-watch the game this afternoon to be certain, but he looked imperious, wasn’t fazed by the occasion or reputations - it would have been understandable had he been psyched out by Ramos, but he wasn’t not a bit of it.

    Now, as you say, he needs to show consistency. 

     

     

    Oh, and even as good as he was, he isn’t my MOTM - Kante all day long, but a really big mention for Pulisic, who must have been pissed at not starting, but he came on and was on it and on it and on it.

    There's no shame in this.

    As good as he has been recently, it is still very early days and by and large he has been a disappointment if we strip away the emotion. We've seen his floor before his ceiling so it's healthy to be sceptical.

    It's also worthwhile remembering that we bought Havertz because we think he can be the next Messi/Ronaldo - not the next Neymar or the next Suarez, the tier below. Even at his absolute best this season we haven't seen the consistency needed to show he is even potentially capable of that level, a bonafide solo match winner. It is still a long and potentially windy road.

    If he cost £25 million I wouldn’t have such a problem with taking a punt on his ‘potential’ , but I was expecting so much more bang for the bucks we paid for him ( weren’t we all ??) and that he would be a reasonable player with growth to come, - notwithstanding PLnewcountrycovidonly21stilllearninggreatpotentialblahblahblah - I mean, he’s been truly truly awful this past couple of games and in those matches , he didn’t shoot, he definitely can’t pass without it being under hit , he can’t run with the ball without losing it (often very easily) and he doesn’t successfully tackle either and if he carries on under hitting passes to his team mates , someone will get injured.

    It’s not his fault that we paid what we did for him, but I am so underwhelmed with what I’ve seen from him from the get go and right now I, personally, just don’t see this potential, he doesn’t do the basics even? and the trouble is his piss poor performances have an effect on the teams moral - did you see the looks that James gave him a couple of times v Everton ?!

    I think I’m guilty of believing all the hype - that’s what spending £75 million on a player does to you - and although it’s not my money, what’s spent is spent and unless it’s recouped, it can’t be spent again so that means less or no money to spend next transfer window and I wouldn’t be surprised if we are getting a reputation of being a soft touch in the transfer market ??

    What I need to know is, how exactly should you eat humble pie ?

    Oh , and PLnewcountrycovidonly21stilllearninggreatpotentialblahblahblah, has a much bigger effect than I realised :slap_face:

    Chelsea fans as a fan base for too long has looked as hard as we can for conspiracies against us...uefa and refs makes it easy for us to "find them" sonetimes. Sometimes we are just sh*t out of luck it's as simple as that. A few descions might go against us tonight but I dont think we need to look into it too deeply. I am sure UEFA hate no one more than madrid at the moment so if sh*t doesnt go our way it's not because of corruption, it's just going to be bad luck and human error(the matchdays officials simply f**king up)

    Couldn’t agree more, ‘bout time we showed some bollocks and front up - can’t blame anyone or thing for not giving it your all, if it’s not good enough, then so be it

    Not a shoe in but reading his prematch press conference he is brimming with confidence. I think he knows he got away with it in the first leg when they should be coming here needing 3 goals not just 1.

    Well you’d hardly expect him to have a quivering , apologetic , undeserving and unworthy persona - often life demands a display of defiance and bravado, being weak is contagious and infectious.

    Time to show you got bollocks :ArousedSmiley: imo.

    (Apologies ladies, sometimes only certain ways of saying summat will do)

    My gut is telling me we're going to go out. But let's see what happens, we are defintely more organised these days and have a much better chance than we could have earlier in the season.

     

    You’ve got dodgy guts :laugh2:

    In all seriousness, maybe we will, maybe we won’t, but we have nothing to fear tonight except fear itself. 

    If we believe and play with freedom & confidence and don’t make many, if any, mistakes, then we can have this.

    We were the better team in Madrid , ZZ and his band of Merry men know that too !

    I’d be very surprised if they thought that they are a shoe to progress ?

    Based off what I said in the kova thread here's my predicted 11

    Mason on the bench to cover Jorgeeh or Kante, also to give him a rest since he took a knock and played back to back 90 mins. Without Kova in the squad I think we need another cm on the bench other than Billy.

     

              Mendy

     

    Andreas, Silva, Rudi

     

    Azpil, Jorginho, Kante, Ben

    Pulisic, Havertz, Timo

     I think we go with the false 9 no striker for the cbs to mark. I think Werner keeps their defense on their toes with Pulisic and Kai making ghost runs throughout the game. James has the potential to start at wb and Azpik drops to rcb.

     

     

    What!!!  

    Rest him!!! Rest him, f**king rest him !!! It’s a CL semi final ffs, you are away with the fairies mate. Do you want to beat this shower tonight ? 

    How can you possibly contemplate not playing Mount ?

    Mason playing in the defensive midfield position is ridiculous, he’s not a replacement or cover for that position, I don’t say he couldn’t do a job, but all his creativity is lost - every time he’s played that role we’ve been flat because we lose his artistry and inspiration - it’s not his position.

    Almost everything that is good about us going forwards involves Mason - the only debate is Dave or Reece and who plays with MM - Werner/Havertz or Werner/Pulisic.

    He has to start, period, the end.

    Lol written in the stars for Drogba to part us with that amazing gift. Kinda believe Aguero will get to do the same for City. Football has a way of writing those stories.

    I sincerely hope you are mistaken - why can’t it be written in the stars for Dave, he’s been mr Chelsea for as long as Aguero has been at city, doesn’t make a fuss, totally dependable, gives everything, model professional.

    He’s our capitano , would love to see him lift old big ears, why not , think positively, let’s do it for Dave :good2:
