We were crap and have been at home for months…but while admitting I wasn’t there to make a difference, I thought the fans were just as crap to be honest. I get the argument that you need to see the team give something (a hell of a lot more than they did for long periods on Sunday) but there was basically nothing from the crowd until we scored. 
I remember when just a few thousand of us were let back in against leeds and Leicester last season and we made a hell of a lot more noise than that. Clearly season ticket holders have got comfy with watching football again and forgotten what a privilege it is to watch a game at the bridge (yes even when we’re sh*t).

Tuchel complained about the lack of atmosphere at home games lately and you have to admit, it’s not been good enough and surely hasn’t helped.

To my mind the team is better when chalobah plays. He has the odd mistake in him but then so does christenson and he more than makes up for that with his willingness and speed in attack. This season started with such a lot of promise but it wasn’t meant to be.

I watched the game on replay and kept pressing fast forward 😴😴

No James + Chilwell against team who play defensive style and we have seen this same story over and over. 

I thought Werner looks better against deep block which is encouraging. Other than that there is nothing to say. Puli n rom had good cameo. Rom won a penalty + red card and offered box presence which helped puli to score that winning goal

I was not sure if it was mic placement or not but the Arsenal fans kick the behinds of our fans worse than their side beat ours, and the West Ham ones were almost as good. They too had their own rip off of the super TT song and it sounded like our fans offered nothing until we scored.

Was a big fan of Trevs before he played for us this season. I called him being a good players for us and so he has shown. Did he make a mistake today? Yes he did. Did he fix it himself? Yes he did.

He also offers more going forward than AC does and will get better imo. Him and Colwill give us really excellent home grown replacements for AC and Toni. 

Of course if you can sign a VVD level players by all means do it. But don't go buying the shiny Harry McGuires that have all flash and no substance.

Now let me defend Jorgi. 

I thought he had a fine game(terrible penalty though).He distributed/kept the ball well and didn't try to be thiago or kova like what he did against palace which invited Tuchel wrath. 

He was in very good form early in this season and has fallen big time since then. When he was in good form, his distribution was better  and his interception game was brilliant  but he will never be the guy who can accelerate play at will (he decelerate game naturally) like cesc or run the game like thiago.
