Tuchel is absolutely slating the 4th official for the Injury time. Lampard would fold his hands and cry in his seat

Mount has been good and I trust him to keep his cool. Giroud has been poor with the hold up play. Would prefer one of Ziyech/Puli or Havertz to come on for him. Too much attacking quality on bench, wh

I don't see how we will beat Atletico and move on  so yeah 😄 2:0  Suarez for sure .

As much as it would be embarrassing to crash out of the Round of 16 again, it might not be worse this time (swear I've said the same thing in past seasons, lol) as it would allow us to focus finishing in the Top 4 (god, we're becoming like Arsenal!).

Well we haven't gone further since 2014...what's another year.

Be interesting game this one. AM are on a bit of a blip but they are a very good team at grinding results out I can see a 0-0 or a 1-0 AM win, which would keep the second leg alive. 

Whatever happens, please do not allow Zouma or Rudi to be playing the CCB role, if both Silva and AC cannot play, give it to Dave. No way, are we going to get away with their lack of reading the game against a canny operator like Surarez or Simeone.

Oh, a Champions League night. How I have missed them! We need much more of those, much more!

No fucking Alonso that is all I ask for

HA HA! No way Tuchel will drop him.

Alonso is like a pest that just won't go away no matter how many times you try to kill it. Ridiculous how he's just wormed his way back into the XI because of a managerial change.

If we're sticking with 3at the back then why not try CHO at LWB and James at RWB? 

Tuchel will never go for it but it's more dynamic ib my eyes

Its been happening for a while really. We've slowly been shedding players with grit and footballing IQ, and instead chasing eye candy with flair and technique. The result is that we have players with specialized skills but unable to do the basic things correctly and professionally.

A player like Kovacic is symptomatic of this. A guy with such excellent close control on the ball, is unable to keep 90% of his shots low enough to hit the target.

That's why we are becoming nothing more than a top 4 team, and not a team that is able to go the whole distance and actually win a title.

I've said it before. It depends more on Chillwell than anyone else. 

Chillwell was dropped because of his indifferent form, rather than Alonso doing anything spectacular. Chillwell will get his chances before the end of the season, and if he steps up, he will go back into the starting 11.

Atletico Madrid with 1 win in their last 4 games, just lost today as well. In crisis mode. 🙃

Sigh...why can't we just face a team on a winning streak instead. 😅

Hope we can nick a few away goals, regardless of the result.

I think the problem is Tuchel's decision to play the back 3. He said it himself that Alonso is more suited to the system than Chilwell.

Alonso is obviously more experienced as a WB., but I think if Chillwell can get more used to it (in terms of when to push up and when to stay back), he can work his way back. Alonso hasn't been spectacular (barring that one goal he scored), so there's a chance for Chillwell to return sooner rather than later

Nahh I cant see Alonso in the first 11 for this, he better not.

We need true quality players for this game, like Havertz, Ziyech. Not this Abraham, Alonso bullshit. 

And stop this 3-back nonsens.
