We could be happy Mustafi did what he did. If that didnt happen we could have easily lost that game. To be fair Arsenal didnt deserve the draw, but neither did we deserve to win. We should be happy with a point.

Barkley needs to play more, cause he is a threat for a opponents goal, unlike any other of our midfielders. We cant blame Kante, we should blame ourselves for not closing the game.

one point there and I went BONKERS during the game over it Tammy was still injured/knocked when that goal happened and THAT played a role in his defensive play and we had a shit tonne o

Honestly sick to my stomach. How half of them can call themselves professionals is beyond me.  Can’t look at any of our players face without disgust 

Bar a few exceptions this squad is just pure shit. Average as fuck and not exactly making up for it with character. The ref is not helping either. Now they are gonna park the bus and we know how that

If, buts and maybe's work both ways.

The PL has been so kind to us this season so far. But we might surely be running out of luck pretty soon.

We are half season in and we still can't get a hold of things. We are still doing the same mistakes, still struggling to finish off games.

Tammy can't sustain 90 minutes on pitch? (I haven't seen him atleast without an issue atleast)

I can't believe Lampard still brings Bats into the pitch FFS. You don't need to be great manager to see that!

You've just completely contradicted yourself. If Tammy struggles with 90 minutes then what is the alternative at the moment besides bringing Bats on in his place?

Bats is terrible but in my opinion he is more likely to get a goal than Giroud. Our options aren't good enough and take Tammy out the team we haven't got anyone I'd be confident in to score on a semi-regular basis, let alone regular basis.

Lampard says every press conference we need more goals in our team so at the very least he can identify like all of us can it's a major problem for us struggling to win games at the moment. If he and the board think we can get someone in to change that this month then let's do it. Otherwise a half hearted attempt to fix the solution doesn't help us in the long term when proper quality needs adding to this squad of players.

I know these are times that we just have to face and fight through as fans considering all that has happened and is happening at Chelsea but God damn it's not easy.

The 9th richest club in World football... richer than Juventus and check out their squad.

That should be enough to tell you everything that is wrong here. 

The truth is.. 

Roman has left his club in the hands of incompetent people.

We dominated and easily controlled the game when they had 11 men. CHO was roasting their left side repeatedly. What do we do after scoring and going up a man? COMPLETELY ABANDON THAT ADVANTAGE ON THE RIGHT SIDE!

What's most alarming about us right now is I don't even know how we fix ourselves.  Can't do it through the transfer market because the top players aren't available. Our backup strikers are horrific. Pulisic is out for weeks. With Mount off the boil we have zero goal threat from midfield.

Seriously, what's the remedy here? It simply looks like we have to just hope and pray that United and Wolves remain as shit as we do. We clearly don't have the capacity to grab this 4th spot by the neck.

United are without Rashford for months. 

Spurs are without Kane for months. 

Arsenal's defence will continue to be a liability. 

 

I am genuinely shocked of how fortunate we are right now. Because this current set of players don't deserve to be finishing top 4.

Couple of positives.

I thought Christensen had by far his best game this season. 

Up until we scored it was the best I've seen CHO in a league game. Looked confident and aggressive which is exactly what we need from him!

We play far too slow though! No defender or midfielder who can spot or hit a fast 30 yarder, so we pass back and forth across the back four then move up a bit, hit it wide then back inside then out wide again and by then the opponents pen area is full of defenders, so it's no wonder we're struggling to get enough clear cut shots on goal.

Willian and Kante (as an advanced CMF) and Emerson and to a lesser extent Azpi (on the right, on the left he is INSANELY poor) are human rain delays when it comes to cohesive speed play

Rudiger and AC (and the even worse Zouma) are also hardly the 2nd coming of Nesta as well

I will protect Rüdiger for sure, he is the only defender in the team deserving to be called one. We would be even shittier without him. Azpi also gets too much stick.

AC is soft shit, Emerson a perfect narcos character but surely no footballer, Zouma is too inconsistant. Kante seems to be a misfit. Mount is still young. Willian turns up greatlyin some matches and that‘s it.

Kepa has been a daylight robbery, one of the worst businesses ever.

Jorginho is BOSS. 
 

Lamps is a beginner. Jody is very successful - on twitter.

I rate Tomori based on potential and so so rate Reece now (defenders)

Azpi is oki at RB (but thus benches Reece) but he is beyond wretched as a LB, a black hole of death offensively

agree on the rest, plus Alonso is dogshit as well, but still actually (what a nightmare) better than Emerson atm

The first two goals were similar flukes - defensive mistakes.
Effectively we managed only one -Azpi- and gave it back almost immediately.
No creativity - chinese word.
I don't trust Kepa anymore. He is below Courtois and certainly belw Begovitch.

Well if we're 9th on the rich list we are 9th. That list reflects turnover however, and turnover is not wealth. In any case, cash is not the only currency. Juve are a more storied club than we are. Much more. All things being equal, players would rather play for them than for Chelsea. Even if people think I'm wrong in this specific case, that players do not find Juve a more desirable destination than Chelsea, there definitely are some clubs higher up the food chain than we are. If we're to tempt players away from such clubs, the reality is we have to pay them more. This means having extra cash helps little because we have to spend more to attract the same level of talent.

The club is in Roman's hands. He cannot escape the responsibility and I don't believe he would want to.

Emerson is pretty much in the exact same boat as Alonso now. Keep him in the final third and he's dangerous and a weapon. Puts in dangerous crosses in open play and his delivery from corners was great.

But he has been totally shit defensively. The one area I always thought he was better than Marcos at. But nope.

I'd sell both.

You think more of Emerson than I do but surely, as soon as there is an opportunity, we'll upgrade at left back.

That’s was a bad display yesterday, at times we were border line pathetic. In fact Arsenal played better with 10 men than us with 11 … they should be really proud of that display.

We were a confused bunch (atleast that’s what it seems from outside) … we didn’t possession football, we didn’t play tiki-taka, no old school physical game, passing was mediocre at times, creativity was nil, counter attack – not seen, crossing from the flank – hardly. When in control, all we did was try to build up play, criss – cross, move behind, lose ball … build up play, criss – cross, move behind, lose ball … when not in control, headless chickens. Tammy had little to no service throughout the game, it just doesn’t make sense, Odoi looks good sometimes and then he like :doh:, Willian has gone back to himself, Jorginio is just not able to put the balls in the channels, Kepa is so unreliable :(.  We didn’t have penetration, we didn’t run in between lines, no creativity. And why didn’t we break play when Tammay was down, break momentum and help your fellow player get medical attention. It was so dumb!!!

I felt we should have got Pedro instead of Barkley … he is atleast direct and runs in between lines. Could have helped us bring some chaos in Arsenal’s backline.

Yes Lampard is already doing the unthinkable this season but it pains when we lose out of winning positions just because we are not doing the basis right. That is a major flaw for a team!! We could have done the double but we screwed up big time, loss of another 2 points!!!

I do think Lampard needs to go back to experience while we are in this rut - can the likes of Oli and Pedro really be any worse than what CHO/Mount and Tammy are producing at present?

Yes, they can. What would be the point anyway? They are nearing the end of their contract and would have little motivation. And they have been alienated to the point of no return.

Still fuming. What did we have 19 attempts or something.. Bellends goal from the edge of the area, just no desire to close out or throw bodies on the line. Missing a JT.

How many times does CHO massively overhit that 45 degree cross into row K. How many times does Kepa fuck up then shout at Rudi and the defence. :middlefinger:
