Maddison's post match comment - it doesn't look as though Frank is using the same message with his guys.

"You don't play for Brendan Rodgers if you don't do dirty work - he always reiterates that is a running game you can't have passengers or carry anyone in this league. If we want to stay up there for the rest of the season there might be teams that can spend more money than us but that team spirit will keep building to try and keep us up there."

Yep, can't help but feel we've taken the wrong route. That was us at times last season but players have go too comfortable and with the addition of the likes of Havertz and Ziyech who stroll around without breaking sweat, it was easy to see the difference.

The only player I never minded seeing strolling from time to time was Hazard, as more often than not, he would win you games. Others have got to earn it and right now they are a million miles away from doing so.

Cheer up chaps, we lost a game, played sh*t, spent a fortune, typical Chelses.

personally, I think we should look to our Academy again, play youngsters who would play with desire and passion, and who have been itching to get a chance, and are Chelsea thru and thru.

Frank and Jodie need to get down to Cobham asap !

Win or lose, up the Blues !

Well said, hardly the end of the World, we lost away to Leicester who are top of the League, did we seriously expect us to win

Defensive organisastion. It's something you work on in training. Maybe it's something the coaching team haven't been paying enough attention on.

It certainly appears so and has been like this for some time now. Surely that's unacceptable and more than a bit baffling.

Tammy was our hardest working player today. He was actually one of the few who played with a bit of passion. 
 

you obviously have an agenda. 

Don’t agree, he is like bamby on ice 

Drogba and Costa for example would if we were having a tough game would have pulled every trick in the book. Tammy has the talent and the physique now to do that do he needs to get in the face of them when are having a bad game

As was proven again tonight, movement means f**k all if the players you are playing with aren't going to make the pass. That is a tactical issue. We are playing far too slow and we have been since Sarri was here. Lampard should know better and he should be instructing the players to get forward quickly. There isn't a single team in this league that has been successful playing passive football.


We don’t play passive football what you talking about? Kante, Kovacic and Mount move the ball quickly. We have some of the nippiest wingers in the league and two very mobile forwards. The tactics are not the issue neither. The team just hasn’t gelled yet. Learn football.

No offence but you don’t seem to understand football properly. A blind person can see Lamps brand of football can be effective when it all comes together. Just give him time. 

No offence taken but what is lampard brand of football because all i see are crosses. We dont attack teams down the middle and dont have a clear identity or philosophy

Well passing sideways and endless crossing is not exactly total football is it?

He’s got more quality than Drogs and Costa. 
 

he’s been world class so far this season.

Leicester moved the ball far quicker than we did. It's about speed of thought and having a system of play that the players all buy into..and not about being 'nippy' I'm afraid.

"They were sharper than us and ran more than us," says Chelsea manager Frank Lampard.

"The bare minimum is to run and sprint and cover ground and too many of our players didn't do it."

Wow 

I thought football is much more than running and sprinting. How wrong I was!

No they didn’t. We matched them for tempo. We had soo many chances but they were more clinical than us. On another day we win 0-2. Just one of them games. 
 

im happy with the progress we’re making under Lamps. The future is bright.

We sometimes move the ball quickly, but even when we do, it just ends up going backwards most of the time. And how many times do we see us with an opportunity to counter attack, and just slowly pass it around at the back allowing the other team to get into their shape? How many times we have have the ball out wide of the opponents area, and then pass it back, sideways and try going down the other side with the same lack of intensity? There are gaping holes all over our midfield, we aren't playing to the strengths of our attack, and half the time the players are throwing their arms in the air and passing it back because no-one is moving, and there's no issue with the tactics?

Yes the team will take time to gel, but this isn't just a blip, this is as good as Frank is able to get them to play.
