  1. We didn't play too badly. I only remember them creating two good chances all game, the Salah one in the opening minutes and their first goal. The commentary/crowd might convince people that they were amazing but in all honestly they had a very good 10 minutes after the break and that's it. When you're at the top you always seem to get the luck. 1 in 100 goal vs us again (after Sturridge earlier) and teams not taking clear chances against them. They were extremely lucky not to lose to Spurs aswell.
  2. Kante, Jorginho, & Ruben in midfield is a must. If we start with either Kovacic or Barkley we might aswell take the loss now. The same team vs West Ham should start, only change I can see happening is if we play Hazard as striker and Willian coming in on one wing. Giroud & Higuain have been equally as bad recently so wouldn't be shocked to see Eden there. I enjoy playing these lot. Out of all the top 6 teams I find myself most confident of a result vs them.
  3. That was awful. Truly awful. Haven't seen for a long time a group of supposedly high level players misplacing passes and losing the ball under no pressure ALL game. This is all I could picture while watching:
  4. I don't come here that often but when I do all I see is your extremely riled up posts. I don't even know if it's an ongoing gag of some sort or you genuinely despise the bloke this much You are consistent to be fair
  5. Christ, Sarri really can’t say anything without getting slaughtered by some here. I guess if the whole press conference is basically about CHO then there’s bound to be one thing you can have a pop at. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Agreed. Any manager would understand Kepa wanting to stay on, but actually refusing to come off and staying on? That's a different story & unacceptable. It's just a shame after a completely unexpected and great performance that this is what will be talked about for god knows how long.
  7. I think most managers would have lost it in that situation. I took him walking off as a way of calming himself down before returning to the bench. The commentator instantly suggesting that he was 'walking away from Chelsea'. Obviously you can interpret it however you want.
  8. The difference is that Emery sets up his teams with the opponents team in mind. Pep and Sarri set up their way regardless of what the opponent does, everyone has to react to them and not the other way around (the exception being Liverpool away for City when they were far more defensive). An Emery comparison would make far less sense than the other two. You can exclude the managers anyway, that wasn't the basis of what was trying to be said & in no way an attempt to push our failings under the rug. It was more a look at City's on pitch problems compared to ours and how similar they we
  9. A few interesting soundbites from City's first season under Pep. Drawing 1-1 at home to Southampton "But there were signs of the home support becoming frustrated with his team's build-from-the-back approach, not least when many could be heard jeering their team off at the break after Stones' error. City lacked aggression and tempo in the opening 45 minutes, allowing an organised Southampton side to contain them and then burst forward on the break." Losing 4-0 to Everton. Sounds a lot like Wednesday night, replacing Sagna with Kovacic's chance. "The Toffees willi
  10. A few reoccurring themes: - We keep having 15-20 minute spells where we are absolutely awful & forget how to play. This is where we usually get punished. Today, Arsenal, Tottenham, Wolves. They all scored a couple of goals in quick fashion and we couldn't recover. - Every team is parking the bus against us, even the bigger teams. It's not easy to break teams down when they do this, we should all know from experience. Leicester are one of the first teams I've seen park the bus against Liverpool this season (surprisingly) and they couldn't find the winner. Newcastle the same last n
  11. Assuming Hazard leaves, what is more likely to happen from knowing how the club/board works over the years: - We give assurances to CHO that he will be a key figure, effectively replacing Eden - We try to replace Hazard by going out and splashing £60m+ on another winger, giving CHO another reason to want out I can only see the latter happening unfortunately but can understand why they would choose that. CHO/Pulisic/Pedro/Willian doesn't exactly fill you with great confidence at this very moment.
  12. The most disappointing thing is that he's been at the club since he was 8 and seems like he has zero patience & intention to fight for a place in the team despite being here for so long. He should've started in all of the EL games he was fit for, but honestly would that have made much of a difference? Think his people have been in his ear for while. Shame to see.
  13. That's the point. The Leicester that played against us was set up completely different to the one that faced Wolves. They even had only two defenders back at points in the game. Btw I have no problem with you picking Neves over Jorginho, I'm just saying it's hard to judge the full extent of Neves' passing range when he doesn't have to face teams that park the bus every week.
  14. Bit harsh to compare Jorginho and Neves in terms of passing for me. We play against teams that park the bus every game & Wolves don't. Jorginho would also have a field day against that sort of defence from Leicester. Completely open.
  15. Here's a stream: http://sportvstream.live/2017/07/29/chelsea-vs-inter-milan-live-stream/ Not the best quality but can't find any others
