  1. 9. Tammy Abraham

    The only thing good I've seen from him is his chest control and hold up play. It's really smooth and fluid. It looks even smoother than Giroud's actually. Other than that, not a whole lot yet but still very very very early days to form any sort of conclusion.
  2. Super Frank Thread

    Just on another note, I can't believe I heard some boos at the end of the match. That really shocked me. What the fuck was that about? That was absolutely absurd . I just hope it was the Leicester fans booing or it was something that wasn't related to the game like the officials or something. Lampard certainly didn't deserve to hear that on his 1st game at The Bridge no matter the result.
  3. Super Frank Thread

    Before the moaners come here as well, please keep it to a minimum. I'll post what I posted in the match thread here: Just to put into context we played 120 mins in sweltering heat on Wednesday. We gave everything physically and mentally in that game. Liverpool were also pretty poor against Southampton. We've seen these sort of performances before after Champions league games and this was even worse because the CL games are at least 90 mins. I don't know why some of us are so surprised. Lamps was a bit naive for not making enough changes but his hand was a bit tied. Our bench is still looking a bit light without RLC and CHO. Maybe Barkley and Willian should have started today but if you look at the players that played heavy mins against Liverpool vs the ones that played today, there aren't that many different options available right now. Maybe Emerson instead of Alonso as the former player 120 mins but Emerson was good today despite the obvious fatigue. Maybe Batshuayi instead of Giroud and Zappacosta for Azpilicueta but its only Lampard's 3rd game in charge and he needs time to learn about his players. We just need to be calm and show some perspective here. The Super Cup was a massive distraction. 120 mins in brutal heat and the physical and mental emotion of losing the PK. What I saw from the Liverpool match and the first 25 mins here is what I expect to see from the team. We just didn't have anything left in the tank to pull it off for the full match.
  4. Chelsea 1-1 Leicester

    What does Willian have to do with anything? I'm trying to defend Lampard here not Willian. I can see some of the moaners are already giving him a hard time.

  6. Chelsea 1-1 Leicester

    Please tell me I didn't just hear boos? Some of our fans at SB have some serious issues. I hope those were the Leicester fans.
  7. Chelsea 1-1 Leicester

    That corner was a Willian special
  8. Chelsea 1-1 Leicester

    Why isn't Willian taking that free-kick???
  9. Chelsea 1-1 Leicester

    Better late than never. Willian and Kovacic will give us a boost for sure.
  10. Chelsea 1-1 Leicester

    That Supercup was just a bunch of shite if we're being honest. Just sapped all our energy for nothing. Terrible timing. First 25 mins was the true Chelsea. Our boys look like they want to be anywhere but a football pitch right now.
  11. Chelsea 1-1 Leicester

    Lamps should have brought on a fresh midfielder 10 mins ago. The tide of the match had turned an age ago
  12. Chelsea 1-1 Leicester

    We need to make some changes now. The players look absolutely knackered.
  13. Chelsea 1-1 Leicester

    We are now suffering from the fatigue from our last match
  14. Chelsea 1-1 Leicester

    ooh close from Kepa. A mistake you rarely see from him.
  15. Chelsea 1-1 Leicester

    Just got back from the store. I totally missed Mount's goal. How have we been playing so far?
  16. Liverpool 2-2 Chelsea

    OMG. ridiculous
  17. Liverpool 2-2 Chelsea

    Emerson has been brilliant in this first 2 games
  18. Liverpool 2-2 Chelsea

    omg Pulisic .
  19. Liverpool 2-2 Chelsea

    Very impressive performance so far
  20. Liverpool 2-2 Chelsea

    Maybe I've been watching too many Messi highlight videos today.
  21. Liverpool 2-2 Chelsea

    woodwork or not Pedro should have scored
  22. Man Utd 4-0 Chelsea

    I'm sure Kante will help.
  23. 15. Kurt Zouma

    I don't want to be too harsh on him and this isn't necessarily about today's game more in general. I've never really rated him as a player, as a talent. Just too cumbersome and sloppy with the ball and lacks a great deal of defensive awareness. His technical ability is shocking for a football player. Zouma is like the Lukaku of centre-backs and that might even be disrespectful to Lukaku as the Belgian is actually a solid player and has an impressive scoring record. Zouma hasn't proven anything yet at the elite level in a top club and I'm not convinced he can. Rudiger can't come back soon enough.
  24. Man Utd 4-0 Chelsea

    Daniel James celebrating like he just won the Champions league. About to turn this off. We've lost the battle today but not the war. It's only the 1st game and we can't make too much out of it. Still missing/yet to integrate many important players (Rudiger, Loftus-Cheek, Kante, CHO, Willian).
  25. Man Utd 4-0 Chelsea

    These commentators keep praising Azpilicueta to high heaven but they don't know how much he has declined. CFC fans that watch every game and are attentive have been saying it for a while now.
