Tears in my eyes. Finally a proper left back. 

Don't want to kneejerk too soon but if he keeps this up this will be my worst misjudgement ever, and I've made some in my time.

 

 

 

Called it. The internationals are at fault that we wont be competing for titles this season. we dont have the quality in depth.

Chilwell is one of the holy trinity. With all of them fit we can beat anybody but as soon as one is out (or more likely too as silva will probably be rested), the rest collapses.

 

How so...

 

We don't even know the outcome yet. If he misses one game how is the internationals the reason we won't be competing. We have benefited if anything due to the injuries some of our big rivals have suffered.

 

Now if hes out for the season then you'd have a point. But I'm 99 percent sure it's not that serious of an injury. So maybe 1 game without Chilwell isn't gonna be the reason we win or don't win the title.

Chilwell has trained for England today so seems the injury and substitution were more precautionary.

Hopefully Southgate doesn't feel the need to risk him this week and then he's fully fit for us at the weekend.

We need to go start a riot outside Wembley if Southgate risks him in a stupid dead rubber match! :rant:

Started every game for us since late September. Definitely number one player who needs rest. Has not be at his best last couple of games. Today is a big game so I expect him to play but very soon he should be left out.

I'd rather leave him out today than vs Leeds which is a demanding fixture. Leeds create chances like a top 4 team

Exactly what I was saying in some of the past match threads - Chelsea can't win them all, but at least maintain the unbeaten run, some draws now and then are just fine, especially if it's in big matches. This gives you confidence and gives you the upper hand over your opponents before matches knowing they go against a team that others have failed to beat before.

It is what happed with Liverpool last season, they were riding a phenomenal wave of confidence, even when they were crap by their standards, still were looking untouchable. That's what the confidence and momentum and an unbeaten run give you.

Me initial fears with him have come home to roost a bit since the return from the international break, he's been passive going forward and defensive mistakes are creeping in.

I can accept the latter as a by-product to an attacking fullback but he really needs to start showing some more aggression in the attacking phase, James is making him look ordinary at the moment

You have been waiting for this, haven't you?

I can't really win with you, can I?

:lol: Well if you're gonna do the same with others here about other players, then... 🤷‍♂️

I assume you're talking about the way I've called people out on their behaviour towards Mount?

That has nothing to do with people not rating him or criticising him, it's the ones that are/were outrightly abusive towards him that were called out.

No, not Mount. Not necessarily him.
