The frustrating thing about today's mistake is that Mendy didn't even need to come out for it. Silva (or was it Zouma) was there to deal with it but he turned into Kepa for some bloody reason. :doh: 

brain fart moment that ended up being the winning goal, such is the life of a GK, all it takes is 1 moment to screw it up, such a shame.

Mendy has been class since we got him.  I can't believe there was actually discussion at one point that we need someone "world class" after he had a stretch of 3 average games or something. Hones

Whether Mendy is truly the real deal for us in the long run remains to be seen but he's not the problem right now. There are problems further ahead of him.

it can happne. last two games weconceded the opener bc of his needless rushing out. absolutely hate the tendencies from goalkeepers to come out when the striker is actually moving away from goal  but i guess it is far easier to estmate the distances from tv than in person.

But did he need to come out for the one today? Silva/Zouma was practically there to deal with it. 

Mendy has been brilliant for us but we can't be having brainfart moments like this all of a sudden.

Tbh Munich aside I didn't think Cech was great at them either.

Ironically our best first choice keeper with penalties in the modern era has been Kepa :lol:

hmm you have a point, bring Kepa just for penalty shootouts :D

You need to add another one - him playing as a sweeper. 

TWO fucking braindead errors in consecutive weekends. Today's is even worst than last week's! :rant:

since he is a late bloomer, i think he can work this out of his game or he can be asked to play a safer sweeper job for a while.

The thing is, we aren't asking Mendy to sweep high up the field a la Neuer. It's only inside the box and yesterday's mistake was just pure stupid. He really didn't need to come out at all when there was one defender there to deal with the danger! It's more of just brainfart decision making than anything else. It's 2 errors now in 2 consecutive league games. This better not become a thing.

It was Bayern's fault to let that happen because they were million times better than us.

That's the thing. We can't control everything in a cup game. May need to win via a penalty shootout sometimes. It's Bayern's problem that they fucked up but that and the shootout gave us arguably the best night of our lives as Chelsea fans.
