I do not agree with sticking all the blame on Torres, Mourinho messed up by not bringing on Mikel to help with the defence at 2-1, we all know Torres is shit but is that news?? Torres was not to blame for the 2nd and 3rd goals were our defence was found wanting again like they have been in the last 6 or 7 games

Let's be honest though. If we had brought on Mikel at 2-1 then conceded we would of get man saying things like "why was Jose so defensive and hoping that a 2-1 loss would win us the tie"? We can't have things both ways. We were losing the game and while it may of helped the defence our aim still should of been to equalise. Can you imagine if Mikel was brought on at 2-1 then we conceded another? All hell would break lose on here. I am not stating you would of said this but a majority imo would of stated Mourinho was complacent and too defensive in bringing on Mikel. And to be honest with you the third goal we conceded was not due to a lack of a Mikel. It was just sloppiness and complete unawareness by the defence from a throw in.

I'm not that surprised by the result.

PSG have a better midfield and are fitter than us.

Don't know what Mourinho does in physical preparation of players but it's not great.

Real Madrid this year seems much better and the players seems to have less useless muscle mass (Ronaldo seems leaner this year compared to last year).

2-0 would be enough and is very doable.. Can't blame torres, a lot of players were bad but hopefully Eto'o will be fit for the next leg. Our midfield will be even less complete. We should bring Van Ginkel up. Mikel will probably have to start. We can do it, 2 goals is nothing and Chelsea play better at home. The scoreline is a lot worse than the game was. A gift and an own goal, last goal was just class but I imagine our defense, will not be as bad next week...i hope. We outplayed them in the first half and could have been up 2-0 or more. VAMOSSSSS CHELSEA!

Ba is shite, but is he any more shite than Torres? From what I've seen of Ba, he has looked decent enough to warrant more opportunities, plus he looks like he can score. He would certainly have contributed way more than Schurrle or Torres in this game.

You can't polish a turd fella. Jose is stuck between a rock and a hard place with the strikers because there is no solution to it with just Torres and Ba, none at all.

I see people throwing around statements like 'Mikel should of been on' blah blah blah.....we were still in the tie at 2-1 so is it Jose's fault that the defence allowed Pastore to waltz and soft shoe shuffle past them for the third goal? No it's not one little bit. This result went from being a very realistic chance to over-turning it to a nigh on impossible task in the blink of an eye. I cannot emphasize the importance of their third goal in terms of both momentum and physiological damage it could of done, all because someone was worried about putting in a challenge on Pastore.......not good enough I'm afraid.

Talking of better players on the night it isn't easy, there wasn't many. Hazard had his moment and held up the ball well but you want him facing the other way, not back to goal. I said to my son before kick-off we would concede inside ten minutes.....and there we had it, that slow start again. After their goal we livened up, we had plenty of ball and had Hazard's shot off the post gone in I think this game would of changed massively.

There is nothing to lose in the next leg, it's simple.....attack from the off and get an early goal. We always say that the players have to be ready but this also requires the help of the crowd in a huge way. The crowd have got to get fully behind the lads if we have any chance of over-turning this deficit. A big night is coming at the Bridge and if anyone can win this and qualify it is us, no doubt about it.

There should be no bones about my final point.....This football club needs a world class striker, until we don't have one the moans and groans will continue.

Ferda will score the winner and then we will hear Gary Neville make that 'orgasmic' sound again... B)

I read you. Looking forward to it. Perhaps, even Jose might do something unusual?

I love them little horses though.

How many seasons have we been saying this now? seems like we have been in transition for 3 years!

Dude - seriously - how many managers have we had in 3 years?

- AVB

- DiMatteo

- Benitez

- Jose

How is anything supposed to transition with that amount of managerial turnover?

Transition is going from a stable set-up, adding elements of change, and finally returning to stability.

We are a massive way off that yet.

It's not that the result wasn't deserved or it's not still doable, but that third goal, especially the timing was like punch to the stomach.

Speaking about forwards, Ibra and Cavani were really poor today.

Dude, are you seriously complaining about strikers like Ibra and Cavani on Chelsea forum?! Fine, give them to us and take Torres and Ba! :P

Very poor goals to concede.

We lacked character IMO, it's like the players just decided to stop playing in the 2nd half.

That 3rd goal ? what a fucking joke.

Hope we do a Napoli in the 2nd leg..
