    I have no idea how he’s still on the park after 70 mins with this performance.

    I totally agree, that’s why we can’t be too fussy with which one tries it 😂

    At least someone’s willing to shoot from distance. Something we sorely lack from our midfield IMO.

    Apart from Lamps' first season, I have been bored by our general play since Sarri, 3 out of 4 seasons our football has been more or less like this

    Jesus Christ. Good save Mendy. If we go behind I can’t see us getting back in to this.

    How the f**k Ziyech gets to stay on while Callum gets hooked is mental unless he’s injured. It’s like playing with a man short.

    Fair enough if CHO is injured, still think Ziyech shouldn't be on the pitch though. Not after Tuchel hooked CHO after 30 mins for being poor before.

    Looks to be the case doesn't it... I just don't like the precedent, Callum puts in the effort, gets taken off, Ziyech does f**k all and gets to stay on. Not good that.

    I wouldn’t say they’re particularly digging at him though is what I don’t understand? I thought Slojo was comparing them to the “Alonslow”, “Fat Frank” type of sh*t that we’ve seen before. I’d say those ones are different IMO.
     
    I agree with everything you said in the second part.

    He was gloating we didnt win? I think everyone was surprised by how poor Madrid were, none of us expected them to sit back and do almost nothing in the game. Find me anyone, fan, pundit, "Expert" who thought the game would be that easy for us.

    Christ on a bike. I login to read the latest Chelsea chat after a hard day at work and you're still at it Traffic Light!! What is wrong with you?
     
    On December 5th Traffic Light wrote:
    "Probably yes, I'm a fan of Jorginho, but we look much better in this system with Kante protecting. It looks like Lamps has figured out his best team, so far so good".
     
    On December 16th Traffic Light wrote his thoughts in response to a post by Scott:
     
    "James, Kante, Silva, Mendy, Mount are all up there with me so far, Kante is just ahead of James in the pecking order".
     
    But by February 13th it had all changed as Traffic Light wrote his thoughts on Kante in a response to LongtimeLurker (bear in mind Kante had a spell out injured in between)
     
    "world class by reputation, that's it. He (Kante) hasn't played consistently well since Conte left for me. Poor last season, poor this season although he did have a positive start in the DM role. 

    I was never keen on his role under Sarri. So this world class tag people keep bringing up constantly is useless I think" 
     
    Surely, it has got to hurt Traffic Light? Keep shooting yourself in the foot all the time. Christ, I'd hate to be out on a night out with you. The barman asks what you'd like, and you'd be changing your mind so often we'd never get a drink!!!!
    It must make you dizzy the amount of 360's you do. Actually, let it go. Take a break fella. Do a bit of Software Engineering, (that's what you do isn't it?), rather than spending all your time on here switching backwards and forwards like a fuc*king dog chasing a ball.

    But thats completely different to saying some would have been gloating we lost, there is absolutely no evidence that is even remotely true. Also this "slagging of Tuchel" thing, who has done that? Who has slagged him off directly? I have said I`m not happy with the way we are playing, its tedious and insipid and incredibly risk free, just horrible to watch. I have also said I fully understand why Tuchel decided to sort out the defence (though I didnt think it was that bad anyway) and play such a defensive style. He needs to win games and get the teams confidence up. As far as I can see thats all anyone has written on this forum, no has specifically slagged him off at all. All we get is you and a few others projecting this odd opinion that some on here are wanting him to fail, dont like him etc just because we dont suck at the teat of our Teutonic Messiah and see him as the bestest thing ever.

    @Slojo You turned on the manager, something i and @yorkleyblue have never done, and will never do, fair enough its your choice, but to call out other fans for turning on TT (even if it is unfair), that is truly double standards from yourself.

    But I didn't do that.  I explicitly said you and Brutos and, in brackets, "some other armchair managers".  
     
    I didn't say this.  I said your stance on Lampard changed between 2 matches and that I thought this was because you were personally aggrieved to lose to Arsenal.
     
    And finally, you accused me of

    Show me one example of me doing that.  Just one.  Get your google mate to help you find a single post.
    Every one can change their minds about something based on evidence and fact.  Such a vast changing of a mind over such a short time-span as yours appears to be, and only prompted by losing to Arsenal is the very definition of fickle.
    And you know exactly what I was talking about. Express your opinions by all means, healthy debate is good for the forum and there are a world of alternative views about most things.
    Popping in to make snide, disparaging one-liner remarks about whether people will pop up if and when we lose is exactly what I accused you, @Brutos and others of.
    I thought you were better than that.

    Amusing that some seem to think supporting the guy who scored the goal that won our first league title in 50 years and captained our first (and possibly last) Champions League victory is somehow a bad thing.
    Anyway I take great comfort in knowing that "Pointing and 5m passes" FC will have their complete support until we lose a few games and start to look like we'll play Europa League. Then the knives will be back out and the cycle will reset.

    As @just pointed out, you swung the other way until you got all upset about the Arsenal game.
    And no, you're not just "having a snide dig at people who constantly give out snide digs,"  You and @Brutos are constantly whining on at anyone who isn't 200% over the top in Tuchel-awe.  
    In my opinion, with the exception of Atletico, the bloke has done nothing more than would be expected, nothing more than I would have expected Lampard to get and the smug, childish one-liners from the pair of you  ( plus some other armchair managers ) are getting tiresome. 
    I've moved on from Lampard being sacked, but it looks very much like a small coterie of you lot just want to besmirch and distort the history of a loyal club servant.  I think it's shameful, but to be expected in the society we have today.

    You gotta let it go now, mate.  You and the patience-free spoilt knee-jerkers got your way, so you just have to face up to it and be gracious in victory.
    You and @Brutos particularly popping in here every 20 minutes with another snide dig just makes you both look a bit like smug twats.
    And, as @just so diligently googled, you have flip-flopped drastically on the subject, seemingly because you were personally butt-hurt by losing to Arsenal.
    Here you are, have a little sing-along.

    Nah - you're misreading the situation. Tommy Tactics was always a reaction to the brutal sacking of a club legend. The difference between those posters and the hyperventilaters who turned on Lampard 3 weeks after we were top of the league is an even keel.
    I think we're boring as hell to watch but we've turned our bad form around and that's a good thing, I'm happy to give him a chance without being particularly over invested in him. 
    I'm also not getting carried away. We won last night from a single moment of brilliance from Giroud, I'm not saying we'll win the Champions League or even the tie based on that.
