Now that I've had a few hours to calm down and think after that shambles today I've calmed down. Guess I was still holding out hope that we'd be competing for the title again. Really thought after that Atleti performance we'd go from strength to strength and fight until the end for the title. Think the league is gone already (which is fucking embarrassing) and the season now is all about top 4 and some good cup runs. We can't win it every year so I guess I'm fine with adjusting my expectations.

We really just have get our act together against these small teams that we should be dominating like the Manchester clubs are doing. It seems like our players go into this type of game and think their talent alone will be enough. The small teams come in a make up for their lack of talent with huge effort and fight and bully us. Chelsea shouldn't lose to these teams unless we get out-hustled and out worked like we did today.

Our next 2 PL opponents will try to do the same things as Palace did.

It was more than outhustled. We were outplayed by Crystal Palace. They were very comfortable whole game. 

In the end of game, usually the big team throw everything and the smaller team camp in their box. It wasn't the case they were comfortable even in injury time. 

I also wasn't happy when Conte bring in Pedro fo Michy, yes Michy played bad but he is our only striker, bring Pedro for zap or Alonso, switch to 4231. Without michy we have 0 presence in their box.

Chelsea title hope is over. Champion is Manchester City.2 place will be Liverpool or Manchester United. Chelsea will be fighting for 3 or 4 position, or even 5 if things get worse. Most of the players were like lost sheep ,doesnt know what to do when they get the ball especialy the back 3. They just love to kick it from left to right and pass back to the keeper..,slowing down the attack. In the front  ,when attack ,its always 2  or 3 against 5 or 6 of the opponents.

This team is for 3/4 down the table.
It's 2015 all over again.
Yesterday I fail to remember Hazard involved in any of the few serious moves we made up front.
The only times we bothered Spironi were Bakayoko's goal and the two shots fired by Fabergas (one was a free kick) and Mousonda who hit the roof of the stadium.
Batch was absent - even he used to perform somewhat better than that.
Willian a ghost of the past.
CP outplayed us. If it was a stronger team we could have lost by 8-0.

Can’t agree with this sorry. Pep is too disrespected, his idea of football is almost revolutionary. What he did at Barcelona alone was legendary. What he’s about to do at City will be as well imo. 

Imagine a talent like Hazard under Pep for example. Look at how De Bruyne is evolving into the complete playmaker under him. Conte has done ok with Hazard but he hasn’t pushed him a level above yet, like Pep has with KDB. 

Yeah! its easy when your board backs your judgement by buying players you want and having a squad deep enough to fill the Atlantic Ocean. That used to be the Chelsea way 10 years ago. Just a shame that Roman hasn't seen fit to remove the two main culprits for this whole mess from his board but that's for another day.

Probalby not the best best to ask this but here goes.....

wtf are we doing copying the arse transfer policy it's never worked for them so why should it work for us.

Now all it seems that CFC are interested in is not laying out the required transfer fee, just so that the profit margin is profitable.

Minus the passion and winning mentality we had last season. So NOT the same team

If Costa and Kante were injured last season in one game, there is no "passion" and "winning mentality" that could save us. I for once remember about 5 games where we played like shit last season, and Costa scored out of nothing to get us out. You think Michy could've done that back then? Also, I remember 5 games when we were shit in attack and all around, but Kante played masterclass in midfield and didn't allow opposition to score, so we could win 1-0 somehow. You think Matić could've done that back then?

Let's stop overrating that last season's team and play, for Chirst sake. Things like that GETS US in this kind of situation. I am sure board is thinking like some of you too.

Bats looked like a player of a match between 1968 veterans yesterday.

Chelsea unfortunately lost his place in football and abandoned an idea from 2002/3 to become if not the best in Europe then among top 4 teams in CL. Today maybe not even in top 10. So many different coaches and some (a lot) very bad decisions in selection of players for years. CFC still spending good but not enough. I don’t think Chelsea fans wants Chelsea to become Real Madrid but to be where CFC was 10 years ago, competitive and among the very best. Another thing makes me angry, well, Antonio Conte and his idea of playing only 5 at the back and counter attacking football. Not helping at all. Not even Juventus use that formation (couple of times) because it doesn’t work against every team, plus always missing an extra midfielder to dominate. I don’t know. PL doesn’t look that poor to me like for the last couple of years. Just can’t see the way for Chelsea to pull that lucky rabbit from the 🎩  again. It’s just not the same quality of PL for doing that. At the end of the day all ways leads to Roman Abramovich, not the Board. Cheers

If CFC don't spend in January, I really don't see why Hazard stays another season with us. Waste of his time.

And who do you think we could sign in january?

as i've said before no club are going to sell their best players mid season, and it's the best players we need.

as for Hazard, personally i think he'll be off to Real next season anyway.

We are in need for ANY decent striker who could be our backup. Some Defoe, in-form Remy or I don't know. Just not Michy.

It sounds like not thinking long term, but man, we have no choice, we could fall out of the top 4 if Morata gets injured again.

After performances like this, our high payed players should be fined with at least 2 weeks wages and give the money to traveling fans and/or charities. Palace couldn't even score before this game, 2 against the champions and a win... And when you see who is sitting on their bench as a coach, the situation for Chelsea is even more embarrassing.

agree on January, but lower clubs with superstar players might give in.

Gareth Bale for our left back then?

In the space of 3 weeks Chelsea have gone from making Atletico Madrid look like Crystal Palace, to making Crystal Palace look like Atletico Madrid.

The strange thiing is Atletico could not follow our pace in that match. Never mind what the score line was in the various stages of the game, the Atletico players could not follow our players. And Atletico are not a side known for any lack of physique.
Against City and Palace Chelsea became slow motion and the negative results were inevitable - especially with City.

"lower clubs with superstar players"

Hmmmmmm and who do you visualise that these are?

Gareth Bale? I would love him at the bridge, not as LB but LWB but that wont happen in January either, if ever.

Errrrrr we're already out the top 4 bud, overtaken by the mighty Watford.

And we've got them Saturday.

It was supposed to be a great night. I was at the Premier League Live fan park in Bangalore. Saw Shearer and Pires, clicked pic with the PL trophy, watched the that shit 0-0 draw between Liverpool and united and mocked at United supports for their shit football and finally our match started. How will I describe those moments?! I just want to dig a hole in the ground and bury myself there. All the rival fans were laughing at us. Only time I smiled during the match was for Baka's goal.

Fuck this fan park thing. I am never going there again.:middlefinger:
