  1. Southampton 1-4 Chelsea

    Probably because they can !!
  2. Southampton 1-4 Chelsea

    They may try for both!!! Just thinking that City have lost to both Norwich and Wolves scoring only 2 against Norwich. We hockeyed both of these away scoring EIGHT in the process. And we're the team in crisis
  3. Southampton 1-4 Chelsea

    Totally agree. And to think some people on here wanted him gone after his first rusty league appearance this season. I think he really wants to impress Frank and for me he will be a key player this year.Links up very well with CHO, but what really impressed me today was his desire to track back and actually win back the ball.
  4. Southampton 1-4 Chelsea

    Aww, we were useless . Played nice sharp football,Willian was everywhere, crossing, tracking back, winning back possession. Alonso too was very good. Tammy Mount and CHO link play at times between them was a joy to watch. Jorginho pulled the strings, Kante tackled everything and scored.Pulisic came on for final 10 minutes with Bats and played him in with a lovely pass. Only downside is our centre halves. I felt Zouma should have cleared the Southampton goal shot with his left foot, rather than trying to poke it with his right. (But in fairness to him Valery shouldn't have been allowed to run and cross it) Tomori had his worst game for us. Made some basic errors in judgement and was very lucky they didn't lead to goals. But look, we won, won well and a very good day all round.
  5. Southampton 1-4 Chelsea

    Have to say I'm pleased at how we are attempting to play the game in recent matches. Slight concern is the creation and taking of our goal chances. Major concern is ZONAL BLOODY MARKING, especially from corners. If we can sort this out we can go far.
  6. Chelsea 7-1 Grimsby

    This is Chelsea....We can never relax watching them!!
  7. Chelsea 1-2 Liverpool

    I was really annoyed at our first half. Basic mistakes cost us again and again this season. Frank needs to sort out set piece defending and zonal marking. We're horrendous at both. But the second half was so much better. Granted, Pool took their foot off the gas, but we were superb and Kante, Jorginho and Kovacic bossed the midfield. Although we lost, lets remember we are a work in progress, a team in transition, and instant success will not happen. Frank is a rookie and we all said we'd give him time, so let's do that. We can hold our heads high as we gave them a very good game today. Also thought Tomori was very good today and is growing in confidence. Kante.....You're a beast.......give the guy a 20 year contract
  8. Chelsea 1-2 Liverpool

    We would be a very close match for Liverpool today were it not for defending set plays and zonal marking.. Frank has to see that these are our Achilles heel this season so far
  9. Chelsea 1-2 Liverpool

    DEFEND SET PIECES...FUCKING DEFEND SET PIECES. And fucking zonal marking is a joke. How many goals have we conceded from set pieces and using zonal marking this season?
  10. Chelsea 2-2 Sheffield United

    Have to agree mate. Once the dust has settled following our capitulation on Saturday, lets look at things in a harsh light We lost some very good(and not so good) players in the summer. We lost a manager. We got an inexperienced manager. (at this level) we had an ageing side. We cant buy to strengthen we have to rely on youth and inexperienced players. And our Board did not have a back-up plan once the ban was enforced Although I was annoyed on Saturday, I will be happy with a top 8 finish this season. We cant compete with City and Liverpool, we now see Wolves and Everton away as very dicey fixtures where a draw would be well received. Leicester ran us ragged in the second half and we were lucky to escape with a draw. Anything off Spurs or Arsenal will be a bonus and United have already thumped us 4-0. And we wont mention what Bournemouth did to us last year. So top eight is realistic, but only just. Anything more will be a bonus. But then again I'm an eternal pessimist
  11. Chelsea 2-2 Sheffield United

    Because we are playing like amateurs....And being managed by one too. Mark my words, this is going to be a very tough season...We'll be lucky to make top eight!!
  12. Chelsea 2-2 Sheffield United

    Think I called it before the game. So bloody unpredictable. Absolute rubbish in the second half. Sheffield deserved that forth way they made us look like amateurs. Aspi was rubbish. Mount never got started. One shot on target in the second half. Frank, you need a rethink, maybe too much youth too soon
  13. Chelsea 2-2 Sheffield United

    This lot could be dodgy.I hope they're not Bournemouth in disguise!!! I would love us to win this 3-0.Give Frankie his first home league win and push us up the table before the international break. But this is our Chelsea, so bloody unpredictable........
  14. Norwich 2-3 Chelsea

    Thought Kovacic played very well today.
  15. Chelsea 1-1 Leicester

    Not much point playing the high press if we cant maintain it. Once we scored we sat back and allowed Leicester to come at us, and we dont have the players to hold a clean sheet at the moment. Mount started well but then drifted out of the game. We looked a very tired team in the second half and bereft of ideas. We were lucky to get the draw as Leicester bossed us in the second half.............Oh and could someone tell Willian that just because you are wearing Eden's shirt doesn't mean you can play like him. You should have been the fittest guy out there but you played like a proper diva, poor passes and not tracking back. Not good enough. Plenty of work to be done in defence and bloody set pieces, and God it would be great to have a proven goal scorer
