    It wasn’t a bad contribution but it doesn’t mean it’s acceptable. He will be judged on scoring the goals at the end of the day. When you play for a big club, there’ll always be scrutiny.

    Yeah, I agree there will be more scrutiny here.

    Although, I feel the scrutiny is a lot more intense now because there is no supporting act in terms of goals.

    When Mount was scoring, and when Pulisic was in good form, there was less reliance on Tammy's goals.

    You’re right but that’s a bit like praising Torres for working hard when he did F all in terms of scoring. At the end of the day, Abraham is a striker. He needs to score goals. That’s the reality. I know he’s still young and all that but he has really missed some guilt edge opportunities this season. Yesterday’s first half header and the 1-on-1 against Liverpool at the Bridge come to mind. He’s not the only problem but he’s one of the main problems why we aren’t putting chances away and killing teams off. 

    But you cant really compare the two, can you?

    Torres had a big reputation coming into Chelsea, and was at the age where he should have been in his prime, and was meant to displace Drogba and Anelka who were still at the club.

    Tammy's role is to make up for the goal threat we lost with Hazard, and to a lesser extent, Ruben Loftus Cheek, when he became injured.

    Yesterday, besides the two goals he was involved in, he also had a couple of headers on target (or at least one on target). Far from a bad contribution. He is young and not yet the finished product.

    That being said, I think we need someone with better nous and ruthlessness to come off the bench to lend him a hand during games where he struggles. If wages are acceptable, someone like Cavani would be ideal

    Best not bring up that Tammy was the reason why we even got a lead and Arsenal a man down.

    When we lose, every player comes under fire in this forum.

    So no surprise

    Willian, Emerson, Alonso, Bats, Pedro, etc should have been sold and upgraded upon for ages


     Kepa never should have been purchased, not for damn near 150m quid, it is madness

    and all goes back to the board STUPIDLY not selling a non-renewing Courtois in a timely fashion and buying a suitable replacement in 2017

    Yeah the Courtois situation was on the board. They thought they could be clever about it, and it didnt expect Thibaut to double cross them at the last minute. 72 mill down the drain because of a lack of a plan B...not sure if we will spend on a new GK anytime soon because of that...

    I'd like to see a fucking shot from outside the box once in a while.


    Batshuayi shit when he came on, Mount shit, Barkley meh, why we didnt put the ball out for Abraham is baffling.   And i seen a pic of him being helped to walk off the pitch.  If thats anything serious its Batshuayi and Giroud until May

    On putting the ball out of play...that confused the heck out of me.


    Thought that Azpi would have done it when he received the ball.

    Abraham also made the mistake of getting up and continuing despite being hurt. Ultimately cost us the goal as well.

    Only 7 ahead of arsenal now....fucking arsenal who has been a non entity all season. FL has big issues man....dont tell me we cant play better, dont say we cant defend better. We can be more organnized, more compact, We can do set pieces better etc. Its like we dont practice at all.

    ...the table says we are 10 ahead of Arsenal..


    Or did I read wrong?

    Winning is everything though.

    To be fair Mount was pretty dire when he came on.

    Barkley was Barkley

    And Bats was a fucking liability.

    We actually started with our best 11 - but for some reason people seem to think we are a world beating team.

    We are bang average - as the results suggest 👍

    But Klopp took 6 years to get it right, but Lampard has a few months... It's super fucking annoying.

    It also shows how much Hazard covered up for these players- I truly regret any slating I did of him now...

    Hazard was slated by a lot of people on here before

    But that's in the past.

    Need to invest in new blood. Soon.

    We conceded two shots and conceded two shots.

    Its beyond frustrating but some of these reactions are pathetic.

    Kepa the keeper should have saved that second one.

    After the money the club invested in that GK position, I'm concerned the club wont spend more on a WC GK any time soon.

    We are still reeling from the Courtois fiasco.

    The only hope now is if Kepa is less worse next season

    I’d play Emerson. Dave offers nothing at LB. 

    Jorginho/Kante/Kovacic midfield 

    Pulisic for Willian 


    I think Dave can at least defend. Unlike ball watching Emerson.

    Is James available? If not we are in trouble. Fuck it play Lamptey again. At Emirates we got lucky. Kovacic must start. Emerson will definitely because no other options and wouldn't be surprised to see Zouma back. 

    No...no Emerson. His last real contribution was to gift Arsenal their goal at the Emirates.

    No more sub standard players filling roles because they are 'right' or 'left' footed.

    To be fair to Rudiger he had 2 players to mark- who was helping him out?

    Yeah, a bunch of our players had zoned out in the box thinking there was nothing dangerous to come.

    In fact I would blame neither Kepa and Rudiger for that one. They just happened to be closest. I would blame the players who were nowhere near the ball when they clearly were supposed to

    Big moves only in summer.

    There is a debate to make.
    This year is lost.
    Don't waste your time thinking about 4th place.

    I would start by hiring a coach for next summer.
    A coach!
    And for the future.
    For a serious project.

    Ten Hag or Nagelsmann would be my bets.
    And serious investment would be made for this project.

    This year be pragmatic.
    Let's not dream about what is not possible

    I fear the worst.
    That none of this will be done.
    You will burn all the money stupidly.
    Lampard will be out late and badly.

    We will eventually knock on Marco Si

    I'm curious with your reasoning.

    If I choose to be 'pragmatic' why would top 4 not be a possibility?

    We are one match away from being halfway through the season, and regardless of the result we would be at least be level on points with 4th place at least.

    This is despite us starting the first half of the season with several players injured, and no transfer window. If I was pragmatic, I would assume the second half to yield even better results. 

    You can play negative Nancy, as you are entitled to your opinion, but I'm not sure why you want others to adopt that view.

  13. Meh . Unlike many on here, I have next to ZERO reaction to this match. 

    Chelsea have one of the worst boxing day match records in recent history. It's only typical that we beat Spurs away and end up embarrassing ourselves at home.

    When I saw the same 3at the back formation, with Emerson/Azpi at wingback I knew were in for an insipid first half. Out of form CHO starting was the cherry on top. Plus Kovacic out and RLC injured, we dont have any real runners from midfield. 

    So on to the next. Jan transfer window cant come soon enough. Rudigers rustiness has convinced me that we need a new CB in addition to a LB
