In superficial (not sure if that's the right word lol) terms, it's really annoying to see the football gods make other teams being super clinical with their chances while we struggle to convert ours. West Brom scored 5 fucking goals at the weekend from an xG of 1.5, for example, and now there's West Ham scoring 3 goals from an xG of 0.99!!!!!!!!!!!!!

shows once more xG is mostly BS, albeit in this particular instance the direction given by xG is correct...can't really make this up.

It's a fucking joke! West Brom, for example, had 10 shots on target in both matches against us this season and they scored 8 goals from it. 

I mean...all that and the football gods make us watch our players miss chances every week. If it's not Werner, it's Mount. If it's not Mount, it's Havertz. If it's not Havertz, it's Pulisic. If it's not Pulisic, it's Ziyech. And the list fucking goes on!

Imagine losing the CL place to fucking West Ham. Lampard should never be employed again. Let him manage some minows.

TT has had enough time to have improved us enough for a top four place. Both managers will be to blame, along with those responsible for spending 250 million on players who've somehow made our team worse.

Not a Chelsea player in the top 25 scorers this season with our top scorer netting a whoppng 6 goals. Its a minor miracle we're still in with a shout of top four.

We're lucky if we have 10 shots and get more then one goal. It's just not been happening this season. Our misses have been interesting..

And rarely make the keepers make many good saves.  Far, far too often we take too long to get a shot in and repeatedly over or under hit the crucial final pass. Furthermore, Mount is just about the only player who can score from anykind of distance. We must have the worst ball strikers in the entire league.

Can't believe Abraham is still our top (joint) scorer after him not scoring since that disgusting Arsenal defeat.

Let's hope West Ham have the same story they witnessed against Arsenal. 3-0 -> 3-3.

Do you not use the 'chances created' thing to bash Mount's creativity?
