In the end, Liverpool had three big chances in the game and scored two. One of them was Kepa's mistake.
We had one with a penalty and scored nothing.

I havent bothered to see what the fucking media has said about the match, but pool were not dangerous enough cuz we contained them, rest is history. I bet they wanked themselves silly.

The German media did not even criticise us that much. They said that both teams played on a high tactical level til AC got a red card. They criticised Kepa a bit, but they knew Mendy was coming. But in TC here, people seem to go nuts.

Even after one man down, Liverpool were not that amazing after all.

From a defensive point of view, we looked good and very good from a collective side.
Individual mistakes cost us the game and both were avoidable. Even if Kepa did not get the ball in the AC Mane incident, I mean it is better to concede in that situation instead of playing with only 10 men againt Pool.

Puli, Ziyech, Silva, Mendy and Chilwell still have to play. Looking forward to it

Our attack is extremely poor. Very slow and no idea of what to do; still relying on individual talent in every play. It seems we're still in the hazard days even with new signings. I'm very worried and honestly not sure about Lampard as a manager yet for a top club.

Give it time mate.

We've got players to come back from injury etc, things are not going to happen overnight, Lamps needs to know what his best 11 are when all are fit.

The system has to be understood by the players, they got to get to know each other it all takes time, if you're expecting to see a miracle change in the short term then you are going to be disappointed.

Give time now is the gelling period next season is when we'll be ready to go, and by that I don't mean things will not improve as the season wears on.

What i'm really pleased about is that on here most realise that, and haven't condemned Frank and the lads, as I feared would happen:ph34r:

People say we need to be more offensive maybe play 4231. Let's forget the 2nd half,10 vs 11,it is completely different ball game.

In the 1st half we barely get out of our half because it has been the same story with us. How do we beat press last season. kova dribble, willian dribble, long ball to giroud. Willian is gone, Havertz can't hold ball like Giroud. So it was all about Kovacic breaking press and feeding Werner. 

With werner we actually has one more way to break press, long ball behind but not sure anyone in our team bar ziyech or maybe Barkley (not sure, but i think I watched him do that) can do that. 

So we can't bring the ball up. But the few time we get the ball up high, can we keep the ball? Nope,same story as last season no william no Giroud, no control - > basketball game, but it was one way traffic basketball game. So we can't progress the ball, we can't keep the ball, can we win the ball high? Are we a good pressing team?? Not sure, you better be sure when pressing against pool otherwise it will be sprint race against mane and salah all night long. 

So now what is the point of playing offensive lineup when you don't have the ball.

Good Analysis ... shows that Lampard is trying to change the strategy based on his players on field. Feel that once the team chemistry is built, Chelsea can be a whole different side.

What needs to be done bud is FL to FIND a system 1st!

But without all the new lads available and he finally working out his best starting 11 that wont happen any time soon I dont see.

Most TC fans would not agree with that analysis. They just want Lampard out, even though his tactics were spot on.

Instead of realizing Lampard was trying to twist his tactics to adapt to certain opponents with limited available players, the general consensus on TC is that he has no system and no style.

Actually sad to see how negative things are here. I always thought Arsenal Fan TV was staged, that fans cant be THAT bad. But its worse on here.

I must have missed seeing someone saying to get FL out.

But if someones going to tell me they have looked at some of his formations and team selections,substitutions without frowning or shrugging then thats what I dont understand.

I know hes going to fuck up and make mistakes. I just pray to the atoms he learns from them.

Sunday's starting XI wasn't our ideal best new XI but judging by how some people keep on using the absentees as an excuse, you would think that our squad was actually down to its bare bones and had to rely on academy players for the match. Werner and Havertz aside, the team was basically the same one that played against Liverpool and competed very well and looked very threatening against them last season. There were also enough options that were sitting on the bench to do more than what we did on Sunday. If this is how we're gonna play every time we have a few absentees, well then, we are truly fucked going forward.

If you don’t think we looked absolutely solid before the red card, instead of leaking goals left and right like what we did last season, then we’re definitely looking at different aspects.

The Kepa disaster was waiting to happen with how deep the team set its defense up. Also, there was zero wing play and no idea how to progress in attack. Calling for Lampard's head is extreme and the absences did have a big impact but putting the loss down to individual mistakes is deluded thinking.

No one said we didn't defend well. We did.

The game at Anfield aside, did we leak many goals against Liverpool last season? The aggregate score of the other 3 games was 5-4 in our favor.

Why do you focus only on the defending side? Does it have to be one or the other? Why can't we do both sides well? Again the game at Anfield aside, we had the right balance between defence and offence in the other 3 games. Sure, there were some silly defensive mistakes in the goals we conceded (not that it was any different on Sunday) but we were still okay defensively and didn't look like we were going to get blown away. And not to mention, we had threats going forward, more so than on Sunday.

Have said it a few times, I wasn't necessarily against the counter attacking approach on Sunday but what was our plan to win the game? How were we going to hurt them? Because as it turned out, it didn't look like we had a proper plan. Hoping Werner did something was like hoping Hazard did something in the past. Werner is great in his own right but he is not like Hazard who can conjure something out of nothing. We had Havertz upfront but ended treating him like a target man by lumping long balls up to him to win against Van Dijk. Other than that, we didn't look like we had a proper plan on how to hurt Liverpool because we had a defensive player on the RW and 3 midfielders who couldn't do anything offensively to save their lives.

Everyone is reading way too much in our second game of the season without 5 players who will most likely be starters. You may say the players were the same as last year but the fitness levels definitely weren't.

 

The only thing we can take from it is that we played pretty well defensively and some pretty good performances in tough circumstances from the likes of kante and Werner James and a good cameo from tomori when he came on.

 

Its obvious that's not gonna be our game plan long term and it will be a completely different team when we next played Liverpool. The game plan was to keep it tight and see if we could nick something at the end and we will never know how that could have worked out.

 

Everyone on here would be going nuts (common theme there) if we went super attacking and lost 4-1.

If it's because the fitness level isn't the same, then guess everyone will be happy if we play pragmatically against Barnsley, West Brom, Crystal Palace and Southampton then?

No. What is the common theme here is people simply assuming showing more attacking intent equates to going gung-ho, as if we can't strike a balance between defending and attacking.

Eh? 

Are you seriously comparing Liverpool to Barnsley and West Brom etc. What are you on about lol.

 

Also every game we play we get more players available and better fitness levels. So comparing Liverpool in game 2 to Southampton in game 7 or whatever it'll be by then is even more ludicrous
