  1. Crystal Palace - Chelsea

    I'm not sure why this has to be the case everytime we win the f'in Premier League. It literally makes no sense. Limp and pathetic defenses of our title. Our board undermining our title defense. Every time...
  2. Crystal Palace - Chelsea

    Wow just had a brief but painful glance at the PL table and City are 9 points ahead of us now. They have 22 points we only have 13. I didn't even realize there was such a huge gap there.
  3. 10. Eden Hazard

    He didn't play well at all, actually was very poor but he plays well like 95% of the time. Hazard is the least of our concerns right now.
  4. Crystal Palace - Chelsea

    Honest question to everyone. If both Conte and Hazard walk at the end of the season, can anyone blame them?
  5. Crystal Palace - Chelsea

    I agree completely Thor. The policy has changed dramatically over the last 4 or 5 years. We can no longer compete with the big boys in the transfer market. Instead of Alex Sandro we got Zappacosta. Instead of Bonucci we got Rudiger. Bakayoko might be an upgrade on Matic but people were talking about him as if he's prime Toure. Some of our fans were seemingly content with the signing of Danny fucking Drinkwater. Meanwhile City sign nothing but stars. Walker the best RB in the premier league. Mendy one of the best fullbacks in Europe. Bernado Silva. Upgrade at GK spot. Even sign a Brazilian international from Real Madrid to be their back up. The results are to be expected.
  6. Crystal Palace - Chelsea

    I remember some were praising the signings of Zappacosta and Drinkwater like we'd just signed Zambrotta and Souness. I was incredibly critical of our window but some of posters on here were defending that shite, god knows why.
  7. Crystal Palace - Chelsea

    He's been absolutely woeful. Average player sadly even though I like him. Seems to be tremendously overrated by other teams' fans
  8. Crystal Palace - Chelsea

    Aguero, KDB, D. Silva, B.Silva, Jesus, Gundogan, Sane, Sterling and two superior wingbacks to anything we've got. And we have who exactly? Hazard, Morata maybe Pedro but he's declining now in his 30's. We can't compete with that now we have CL football to contend with. They just blow our squad out of the water with ease.
  9. Crystal Palace - Chelsea

    Meanwhile Man City are winning 7-2. They just have way more quality than us. So long trying to defend that PL title. Our board have given Conte nothing special.
  10. Crystal Palace - Chelsea

    Fabregas needs to stop with all these crazy hollywood passes. It'a all offside and is wasting time
  11. Crystal Palace - Chelsea

    Oh Willian.
  12. Crystal Palace - Chelsea

    Alonso might have nice technique striking deadballs but he's a distinctly average footballer sadly
  13. Crystal Palace - Chelsea

    Close Fabregas. I know there was an international break but conceding 2 goals to a team that hasn't even scored a goal up till today is unacceptable.
  14. Crystal Palace - Chelsea

    Please show some more respect to our players. Willian and Batshuayi aren't Torres bad. They don't deserve stuff like this
  15. The Conte Thread

    I'm starting to fear that Conte can't implement the style of Man City even if he was given the players to do so. It's not just about having technical quality. You have to be able to implement it and Conte has shown no signs he could ever coach possession based football to the level of Pochettino let alone Guardiola. There's a reason why Bakayoko was our midfield marquee signing.
  16. 10. Eden Hazard

    He's never going to win the Ballon d'or or at least get the respect his quality deserves playing for a team that plays with 10 men behind the ball all game and can barely even play football.
  17. The Conte Thread

    Skipper, I honesltly couldn't believe what I just watched. I've already voiced my concerns for this season ^^^. I'm going to do other activities that make me happy. Gutted right now.
  18. The Conte Thread

    It's not so much team selection. (1) Low block for 90 mins. 5 at the back + Kante + Bakayoko shielding that. Our wingbacks were pinned back for 90 mins. Conte's fault (2) No high press when City were attempting to pass from the back. Even Mourinho tried the high press when he knew his team couldn't cope with the technique of a top team's midifeld. This is one thing I absolutely hate Conte refuses to do. For.Some.Weird.Reason. Conte's fault. (3) Willian, one of the most wasteful players in our squad who can hardly be considered a scoring threat replaces our main striker instead of Batshuayi. Conte's fault (4) No answer to the offside trap. (5) No answer to City's switching on and especially off the ball. Conte's fault Tactically, I saw zero from Conte today. This was far worse than the United away game last season because there we had legitimate team selection problems. Here even before Morata went off, we were getting outclassed. Thank god we only face City twice every season. Can't bare to watch that again. Conte needs to find a way to handle possession based high calibre teams with technically gifted midfields. That is essentially what all the favourites for the Champions League are. Judging by what I've seen today, we have no chance of winning that. We have to consolidate on dominating the small teams this season. It's our only chance to retain our title.
  19. Chelsea 0-1 Man City

    Batshuayi wouldn't have made a difference. This is a playing philosophy and mentality problem. We simply don't know how to play football with possession based footballling sides despite us being a multi-million pound ensemble. What's the excuse? Our board fucked us but they aren't the ones who made us play in low block for 90 minutes. What can Batshuayi do when you can't touch the ball? Hazard barely touched the ball. Once that happens, we lose.
  20. Chelsea 0-1 Man City

    Read my above post ^^^^^^ I don't care about the final score. An L is an L. The dominance they showed over us was unacceptable.
  21. Chelsea 0-1 Man City

    That one wasn't even that bad. I just felt we weren't good enough and looked clueless because Mourinho couldn't coach any attacking football to save his life. This was............ they ate us alive today. It felt like a 5-0 defeat. There's absolutely no reason why they should be so superior to us and make us look like fucking Watford.
  22. The Conte Thread

    This has to be the most humiliating defeat personally I've ever experienced at Stamford Bridge. And I've been actively supporting this club since 1997, the days of Zola, Poyet and Petrescu. I can't ever remember us looking so bad AND negative. For the 1st time and I'm totally disappointed in Conte and his approach. Even if we don't have the same level of technical players in our team, to try not to even press them is disgusting.

  24. Chelsea 0-1 Man City

    Conte's teams don't know how to deal with high calibre possession sides. Tottenham have dominated us in virtually every game and they're not even high calibre but possession based. City is both and we were very lucky to beat them both times last season as they thoroughly outplayed us in both games. We aren't so lucky anymore. They've improved their team and they've fully implemented Pep's philosophy.
  25. Chelsea 0-1 Man City

    What is even pissing me off the most is that it's not even effective counter-attacking football. It's not like the PSG - Bayern game the other day. It's just back-to-the-wall lump it aimlessly forward for 90 mins. No plan, no idea, nothing. It's like those Mourinho games in the Champions league in his 2nd spell. Hit and hope. What the fuck are we supposed to be watching! We aren't Huddersfield. This is a multi-million pound ensemble! I can't even discern what this team is supposed to be doing
