What annoys me the most is that the league is there for the taking with Liverpools injury problems. 

I had high hopes for the season, but with Lampard as our manager we will definitely not challenge for the title. I truly believe that we might even struggle to get top four, which is unacceptable to be honest. 

What should be done? Do you want Lampard to be sacked if he drops more than 12 points in the next 8 games? Or do you accept the fact that we will struggle this season with him as a manager and we might not even get CL football next season?

I'm very conflicted about this, but out of respect of what he has done for CFC, I say to give him to season to prove himself. If however at some point it looks hard for us to make top four, then he must be sacked though. The talent this team has deserves CL football next season.

We should be challenging for the title, but after spending £200 million we are still far away from winning it.

Like I said for months, a rookie isn't going to win you titles especially when repeated mistakes happen again and again and again. I've seen this before with Sarri and Mourinho and since January, I knew Lampard falls in to these same categories as them: stubbornness and ego. 

For example, what has Tomori done to not sniff a place in the starting XI. I know Zouma + Silva is the "hottest thing" due to one game, but I'm just flabbergasted after we keep seeing Andreas making bad decisions.

I'm tired of players getting frozen out for no reason, while fecking Kepa who has cost us more points and trouble then ever doesn't get frozen out. Kepa deserves to be frozen out but we keep seeing him. I'm just fed up.

Or maybe, just maybe, Palace "didn't attack" because we didn't let them?

I mean think about this Palace recently went to Old Trafford scored 3 and could have scored 8, they saw us ship three to West Brom the previous week, their strength on the counter is also a weakness for us, you really think they would look at those things combined and think "nah ain't going to bother attacking today what's the point"?

Yes, we did well to stop their counter attacks but really, let's not pretend Crystal Palace are anything other than pragmatic, defensive under Roy Hodgson. We played a more proactive side yesterday, a side looking to attack and press us and look what happened.

Not to mention they've won more big games away to the big six in recent years than the big six sides themselves, we limited a very dangerous and pacey counter attacking side to absolute scraps.

I don't know why the other Big 6 have struggled against Palace but our record against them has been good over the last few years. We have won 11 of the last 15 encounters, including the last 6.

They may be pragmatic but the second they get the ball they look at getting at you quickly with the pace they have up front, we've had a lot of trouble with that in recent years (at Selhurst Park last season we looked vulnerable every time they did it). So it may be small sample size but it encouraging we managed to completely nullify that threat and hopefully the Silva/Mendy axis can keep that up.

Regarding our recent record against them, you're right we do seem to be avoiding the troubles our rivals get against them in regards to results but they usually make it hard for us and trouble us on the counter.

A day has gone and im even more livid, saw the game again and man do we have fundemental issues and thats to the coaching. Since day 1 of FL tenure we still witness the same bs and mistakes, something has to give. Every single of their goals were a disgrace, cb's ball watching, distance between them all fucked, in extra time Vestergåd were between 5-6 of our players and none of our defenders were goal side of him....thats a fundemental issue and comes from the staff. Not good enough by half.

But that is still different from a side looking to play on the front foot. 

IIRC, that game at Selhurst Park last season was largely fine until they suddenly got their first goal back and then we just lost the plot in controlling the game, as always.

You're over-exaggerating that last bit.

It rocks us massively if we concede, we just go into our shells and collapse.

That's it. Never just one player its all of them that seem to lose the plot...just dont get it. We should be comfy..ish at 2-0..instead another 3-3 draw.

Just switch off and who knows where Kepa was running off to

I find it kinda hilarious that some spout about we only score from individuals talent. But when individuals fuck up its a tactical or management problem.... the way we started yesterday was superb, so let's get 1 thing straight lampard has some sort of clue because we smashed the game nearly the entire half. U can say what u want but my opinion will not change, our defense is just a disgrace. Azi kepa AC zouma rudigar alonso Emerson just trash dave has had his day he cannot push forward and make it back I time he hasn't got the legs, AC zouma do not mix its like watching a bull and a small scared lost boy out there. Kante this right here is the problem Kante is done, he pushes up to much he can't pass he spoils are offensive play n he's barely ever there to cover his own cock ups. If we are going to play this attacking football we need  Fernandinio or some sort of defensive quarter back player(if u say Jorginho u should slap yourself) you put a a shelvey or a Phillips in this team for kante and change jorgi for for say barkley or even mount it would completely change our play and open up completely new offensive channels.

I see we've found our new scapegoat now Alonso's out of the team.

I can see your point, but can't accept it.

Let's be honest, we were dominated by Brighton, we were dominated by wba for 45 mins and we were dominated by soton for more than 2/3rd of the game. Let's not even go to pool.

Palace was either an out of the world performance from us, or a shit showing from them. 

Also against United, they had 20% of the ball, it was a classic counter attacking performance. Palace have always played passively, sitting deep and then countering. As much as I would want to believe you, I just can't based on all the rest of our performances and the way palace normally sets up.

Chris is indeed dogshit, he wouldnt play in any other top club for me. How he is ahead of Tomori is beyond me, im not saying Tomori is WC but somehow he has been frozen out, something that has happened to a few players to suddenly jump back in out of nowhere.

Let's be honest are attack 4 are brilliant could even throw mount in there 2, we have a decent lb now and mendy dunno we not seen him really. Silva will be awesome but he's a quick fix. The rest are trash jorgi dave kova zouma AC kante kepa, they simply ain't good enough or even close to been good enough, we need another 2 players to make this team a centre back and a quarterback style DM, Phillips and say Connor coady would make this team. Just 2 players as a for instance

Maybe we were dominated by BHA but how many games last season did that happen in reverse? Apparently only the result mattered then.

The fact that Palace created all those chances at OT with 20% possession proves my point, why would they refuse to (counter) attack a side when they had so much success vs a side with a better defensive record that also finished above us a mere fortnight before?

And people seem to forget Tomori was also making a lot of silly mistakes before being dropped and it was only a matter of time before they led to goals, and lets not pretend patience would have been shown to him by supporters either.

Yeah thats plausible but Chris has played too many games compared to Tomori, he is weak as fuck and very rarely do I see him do good stuff. Our whole backline is fucked, infact the shape of the team is fucked more often than not. We are a 2020 Lamborgini avantedor up front, but a Fiat punto on 3 wheels with a non working exhaust at the back.

I think fiat punto with 3 wheels n no exhaust is putting it nicely, I think we are more like half a wheelie bin on wheels with no lid
