  1. Martin Tyler wants Liverpool to win so badly it’s embarrassing. From ‘Liverpool will be kicking towards the kop end’ to ‘Man City had less travelling’ to ‘just because there’s contact doesn’t mean it should be a penalty’ and even making excuses for City’s 5-0 win over them. It’s criminal that Sky do this and we’re expected to pay a subscription fee to listen to this.
  2. I’ve gone for Luiz although it could of easily of been Rudiger, Luiz normally makes me nervous so I think he deserves a bit of praise for a good game.
  3. Disappointing to lose a goal so late in the match but I think a draw was a fair result in the end. I think we have a have done great considering Sarri has only been our manager for a couple of months. I thought it was a good match with 2 good teams and I’m satisfied that we can finally play against other big teams and impose ourselves on them, this is something I’ve wanted for a while. It’s clear we need a top striker if we are to compete with Liverpool and City for the title but at the start of the season I said I’d be happy with a top 4 finish and possibly a cup and we’re still on track so in the grand scheme of things I’m happy.

    Man of the Match - Chelsea Vs Arsenal

    Alonso MOTM for me, although special mentions for Pedro, Barkley and of course Hazard. As said in the match day thread it made a change to play another big team without fear.

    How good is CHO and how bad is Morata. Not getting a 2 goal lead when we are top could be our downfall this season, there always a chance that the opposition equalise late on and we end up with a draw from a game we should of won.
  6. Expectations: - to put up a serious challenge for a top 4 spot. - to be more competitive when we play Man City. Hopes: - to keep Hazard and Kante as they are absolutely vital to us and would be very difficult to replace. - to get a good replacement for Courtios if he was to leave. - Our defence is fine IMO, so I hope we can quickly switch our attention to sorting out our attacking options, as I think this is the end of the pitch that will make or break our season. - to win the Europa League and guarantee a Champions League place this way if the league route does prove to be beyond us. Fears: - Selling Hazard or Kante after the transfer window shuts, as other transfer windows around Europe will still be open until the end of August - that would be the worst possible thing we could do. - Liverpool winning the Premier League - we would never hear the end of it, the media would absolutely love it and there would be probably be a campaign to have Klopp knighted.
  7. I bet Ross Barkley still gets subbed before Bakayoko.
  8. Same old story, 1-0 up and throw it away. I've accepted that we are now the 5th or 6th best team in the league but what's disappointing is that we couldn't manage a win for Ray Wilkins today.

    Antonio Conte - Now Officially Manager

    Sums up our season really, go 1-0 up, fail to kill the game off and then concede and throw away points. Top 4 definitely gone now, I can't even see us winning all our games let alone Liverpool & Spurs losing 3 or 4 games before the season ends. Ironic that it was a substitution that changed the game for them as that is definitely one of Conte's weakest points. Whoever is to blame the most for this slump, and imo the board, the players and the manager have all made mistakes, 5 wins out of 20 games is very poor form.
  10. I swear every 50/50 offside decision has gone Liverpool's way tonight.
  11. Yep, and didn't they "somehow" get the number of the hotel Chelsea was staying at in 13-14 and fire alarms was set off at 3am. I think someone in their team slipped that day and we won 2-0 after all that.
  12. They attacked the City bus with objects while it was on the way to the stadium. The front windscreen is damaged and they apparently it's so bad that they have to get another bus to take them home.
  13. As good as Liverpool have been you can't underestimate the effect of Man City having their bus attacked by the Liverpool fans which I'm sure will be all forgotten about by full time.
  14. We seem to revert back to the managers who play the "soak up pressure and hit them on the break" style and that turns us into a team that only plays for one half of a football match. I used to watch other top team's matches and think that opposition teams roll over for them, but it isn't as simple as that, they seem to have more energetic players who press from the front and force teams into mistakes. And when they do score they keep up the intensity and look to score again asap, and they normally start home games fast and on the front foot as they know a early goal can put any defensive plans out the window as long as you follow it up with a 2nd goal. Even a energetic ball playing midfielder and a change of formation could make a difference. Maybe looking at the Italian league for managers isn't the answer anymore. Having a Italian style in the premier league is risky as our league is totally different and played with a different intensity. Even our youth teams even seem to play with a different football philosophy. Our next managerial appointment is going to be one of the most pivotal moments at this club for a number of years.

    MOTD Chelsea rant

    I remember that bit and what made me smile is that Gary Neville said straight away "I disagree with what Jamie has just said". 2 ex-footballers.....one is now a proper football pundit and the other is someone still more famous for being injured all the time, marrying a pop star and that white suite and sunglasses.
