Chelsea vs Liverpool (Super Cup) Wed 14th Aug 20:00 GMT

Recommended Posts

Real shame to lose that as we arguably deserved to win that in 90 mins. I’m actually not to upset about it , only thing that is obvious and the same from the United game is that we really need to be more clinical in front of goal. 

 

We we looked good though in fairness. Pretty happy with the performance .

Abraham won't be Lukaku mark two ... because Frank will pick him up and give him another chance. He won't ship him straight out on loan like Mourinho did with Lukaku.

Credit to Abraham for having the bottle to go last - he's normally pretty good at penalties, so quite understandable he'd be up for it  ...

Caught the last 20 mins of ET and the pens. Played much better than the last game, hopefully this is more like how we'll setup going forward, with less of both fullbacks going forward and leaving spaces in behind. Pens is a lottery, would have been nice to win, but end of the day it's just the European Community Shield basically, so I'm not that fussed.

Really feel for Abraham, he had a good game, but the 2 decisive moments that came his way, he fluffled his lines. Its important we stick with him in my opinion. The goals will come.

Anyway, we look a much better side with kante back, who was absolutely outstanding playing in the same position he played under sarri. 

Pedro showed some real experience and leadership tonight, industrious and creative, but calm and composured when required. He always turns up in finals, and he lead by example.

Plenty of positives though, with Rudiger, Willian, RLC, CHO, and James to come back in contention aswell.

Great game! I hope the penalties doesn't overshadow the performance. The midfield of the team was really the part of the team that impressed me the most. Jorghino, Kovacic, and Kante have a lot of potential moving forward.

We gave a fight. Should have won this tho.  But our game looked positive and even if we weren't clinical enough. I suddenly feel a lot more optimistic. 

Bring on Leicester. 

Oh and Kante is a godsend.

You have to applaud Abraham for putting himself forward for 5 Th pen but I certainly wouldn’t have put him there. Has shown nothing yet to deserve it. 

That will have done his confidence no good. Said to my wife an 2-2 that I bet Tammy is taking 5th and he’ll miss it. Didn’t see the match but by all accounts a good show. Unfortunately the scum have won the cup regardless of how they won it. I really f**king hate them.

I see the pattern for the season. We play quite well, are a little unlucky and lose.

That's what worries me. If we don't get the result on Sunday I think we'll be in serious trouble. I know that sounds mad, but unfortunately it's the modern game for you. And once the rot starts it rarely stops. Frank needs more time.

Wrong call from Frank to have Abraham take a pen, let alone the last one.

Proud of the performance, but not having a quality striker upfront is the reason we lost today. All that effort for nothing.

Just hate losing to these c**ts.

We look great but once again come away with nothing. That's hard to accept right now.

It will sound harsh but Abraham cost us tonight, missed a sitter in extra-time and then the weak penalty to cap it off. Really disappointed.

 

He did win a penalty in extra time though. I think this will only make him work harder, a decent battle scar for the future redemption.

I did, and clearly the players and fans that spent a lot of money to be there did too. I question anybody's support for the club if they don't care much about a cup final. You only get to play in this game if you win one of the major European trophies, it's not a game that comes around often.

That was really chickening out. Nobody will blame you, young man, shoot it the best way you can. I'm sure that's not it.

Almost... no complaints... a great Team effort. Brilliant to see the youngsters play.

Just the one obvious observation from me...

**Caballero is our specialist penalty saver** ... definitely not Arriz.
