  1. Watford 1-2 Chelsea

    I agree.....But these were the ones we were losing every other season...
  2. Watford 1-2 Chelsea

    After watching Jorginho and Kovacic tonight I feel i need to offer them both an apology. Last season under Sarri they were average to crap, and I said that when Sarri left I hoped he'd bring "that donkey Jorginho" with him. I also thought that Kovacic was only a squad filler. well tonight, and so far this season they have both been immense. That pass from Jorginho to Tammy gave me more gratification than sex!! And Kovacic running at Watford reminded me of Lampard. Ok Jorgi gave away a penalty but that aside he was brilliant. So I am apologizing to you both for poor judgement on my behalf. But blame Sarri for that. He had huge players but chose to quell their real ability on the pitch with negative tactics.These guys could have left the club had it not been for the influence of Lampard
  3. Southampton 1-4 Chelsea

    Probably because they can !!
  4. 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
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. Chelsea 7-1 Grimsby

    This is Chelsea....We can never relax watching them!!
  9. 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
  10. 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
  11. 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?
  12. 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
  13. 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!!
  14. 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
  15. 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........
  16. Norwich 2-3 Chelsea

    Thought Kovacic played very well today.
  17. 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
  18. Chelsea 1-1 Leicester

    Oh sorry.....I must be on the wrong site. I thought this was the Chelsea v Leicester thread???? But it looks more like like an advert for Eurosport Guys, we've played ONE league game and ONE Super cup game and we have a large squad... What the f@ck are we talking about "tiredness" after 2 games???? These are professionals who are payed to do this week in, and week out. Oh and we will record a win against Leicester for the record. Wouldn't mind seeing Bats given a start, just to see what he offers us up front.
  19. Liverpool 2-2 Chelsea

    Reputation restored after Sunday....Not arsed about this result. The performance was outstanding, and we really made Liverpool work for it. Still not convinced Tammy is our number 9 though. Still very green, he had the chance to wrap it up from 3 yards and fluffed it. really needs to step it up at this level
  20. Liverpool 2-2 Chelsea

    Absolutely superb first half performance. Kante back playing his natural position is a joy to behold, he is at the heart of everything we create. But the first 10 minutes of the second half will be crucial. Pool will come flying out of the traps at us, so lets hope we're ready for it
  21. Liverpool 2-2 Chelsea

    Yea, no pressure on us to really win this,so I'm just gonna sit back and see if we have improved at all since Sunday. If we lose but have corrected some of the horrendous mistakes I wont mind. We are still a long long way from being anywhere near full strength and this is a game where players will want to stake a claim for a regular starting spot.
  22. Liverpool 2-2 Chelsea

    Dont want to see Zouma start, or Aspi for that matter. Both were very poor against Man Utd. I would start Bats instead of Tammy too and Pulisic instead of Mount. Bring Mount on after 60 minutes as his pace in the last 30 mins may generate something. Kante instead of Jorginho. Pedro needs to stop giving the ball away in dangerous areas as he caused us untold damage against Utd. We will suffer as we dont have a proven goalscorer, so if we do score we will need to be tight....And I'm afraid that at the moment we are unable to be that as a unit. Still, we knew this season was gonna be tough so lets just ride this period out and push on. KTBFFH
  23. Man Utd 4-0 Chelsea

    Totally agree,the guy was our best player by far today
  24. Man Utd 4-0 Chelsea

    Well lets look at the positives. 4-0 has really showed up our defensive frailities. Zouma not good enough, Aspi getting slow, Christensen was solid enough and Emerson was the best of our back line. Kovacic was solid and looked good while I'm still undecided on Jorginho. Barkley and Pedro gave the ball away far too much and too easily, while Mount did well for the first half only. Sadly Tammy, you're not good enough for this level. We dominated them for the first 20 minutes or so and deserved to take the lead, but the post intervened. Some nice high pressing but we dont have the stamina to carry this for 90 minutes. Onwards and upwards people as we can only drop one more place in the league !!!!!!!!!!
  25. Man Utd 4-0 Chelsea

    Until the second goal went in we were playing very well, but then it all fell apart. Mount has been anonymous in the second half. Pedro the same. Zouma not good enough for this team. I think Kovacic is playing well and is one of our best today. i dont think our stamina and fitness levels are good enough to play the sort of game Frank wants for 90 minutes. 4-0 is embarrassing and after watching this goals will be hard to get, and clean sheets even more so.
