    It's a very good rule of thumb - we can disagree with people everyday but there comes a time when someone makes a point that we are just fed up listening to even though there might be some truth in what they say - we are all guilty.
  3. Chelsea 1 Liverpool 2

    You know I never knew that seriously.What are we doing to the game? the powers to be are destroying the game - to unshackle the game I would get rid of the offside rule completely and the two yellow card rule that a player misses the next game.

    What! what! not the convoluted verbose response we are used to dear boy..but I like it.

    When you watch motd willian and Alonso looked very good - a few of alonso's crosses were sublime which is why he should be played higher up the pitch or not played at at all.Why Willian looked good is beyond me the BBC most of edited all his best bits.

    Compared to Utd we look exceptional - get your money on ole 'goner' solskjaer to get the sack before the season ends @3/1.

    He played well against Liverpool in the super cup. Scored a good goal that was ruled out by VAR again and made a very good assist. Played decent against Norwich also had an assist. He was poor against Leicester and Sheffield. I think rotating him was fine but to be behind Pedro is what seems odd. Pedro has been awful in nearly every game. I was surprised to see him picked instead of Pulisic on Tuesday. I don’t think Pulisic has been as bad as people make out. He has shown bits of quality and inconsistency too. I think Willian defensive contribution is the only thing keeping him ahead of the rest right now. In the final third I would prefer Pulisic.

    Think I've only seen Pulisic play in the Leicester game this season. He wasn't great but not nearly enough to not have featured in the past two games. He was that bad for Sheffield Utd ? I guess Frank did say everyone would get a chance to shine, he didn't take his so its Willians turn.

    It feels funny that I'm not seething at losing this game. Hopefully it's because I sense we're building something here, evidenced by the fact that the best performances this year, by and large, have come from the younger, less established, players. We need an option though for the Willian/Pedro conundrum. A player that is more robust. Those two players remain the last of those that you sense don't really care that much if we are losing as long as their game remains ok. Pulisic needs to get his act together and it would be nice if we saw RLC and CHO provide something this season. When the key injuries are resolved we should be able to make a fist of the season so that transfer targets can be identified for the summer. Kante MotM by a mile. It goes to show just how much we have missed him.

    One excellent pass towards the end of the second half . Replacing Hazard . Lol.
  16. Chelsea 1 Liverpool 2

    Well, I benchmark my judgement against Droy's. Each time I agree with him I have to think again. Whereas, if Droy disagrees with me, I am more likely to be right.
  17. Chelsea 1 Liverpool 2

    The mark of quality.
  18. Chelsea 1 Liverpool 2

    Now I am even more certain I was right.
  19. Chelsea 1 Liverpool 2

    I remember mentioning this before the season started and basically got laughed at. So far, and based on performances, he ain’t the one who will move to the bench once Rudiger is back. I also see a few try to say we’d be better had we played 343. Pfft, this is the formation we should play and by far the best one for us given the players we have. I think we would have been absolutely trashed in midfield had we gone with a two, not to mention the flanks behind Azpi and Alonso. Frank got the team spot on. We utterly deserved at least a point, probably all three considering how they were gifted the second goal by Oliver and Alonso and how they ****ed us over by the usage and non-usage of VAR. I hope Frank will now continue with the 433 and get back to a high-press, high-intensity game plan and leave the Antonio Conte defensive rubbish where it belongs. In the bin.

    Willian was pretty good today. Just saying.
  21. Chelsea 1 Liverpool 2

    The big question for me is how poorly Willian has to perform to be dropped. Now I know why he wants to remain at Chelsea. No other self-respecting club in Europe would accommodate a player of his experience putting on such performances match in match out.
  22. Chelsea 1 Liverpool 2

    It would be a bit of a surprise if Leicester gets into the top 4 IMO. Decent side and all but I think they would be more in the battle for top 6 with United and Chelsea.
  23. Chelsea 1 Liverpool 2

    and as we are in mystic meg mode I will give £100 to charity if Jorginho is a regular started for us at the end of the season
  24. Chelsea 1 Liverpool 2

    I’m not sure who those people you refer to are, but I’d be willing to bet you £100 for charity that Sarri will have one season max at Juve.
  25. Chelsea 1 Liverpool 2

    Top 4 will be the most interesting part of the table. I really think Leicester have a good chance of upsetting the odds again.
  26. Chelsea 1 Liverpool 2

    I can’t knock any player out there today. Great effort from the whole team, I don’t get the criticism for Willian or Alonso based on that performance. I have been all for giving youth a chance for years now, but it don’t have to be at the expense of making senior players scapegoats. We have one world class CM supported by two very good players, but it’s too lightweight and their first goal exposed that today. Fabinho athleticism and physique brushed through them with ease. We need a destroyer in this midfield to get about the pitch and add some physicality. We clearly switched off for their 2nd, probably still thinking about the disallowed goal. Tomori has gone from looking to be 5th choice CB to looking our best partner for Rudiger. Impressed by his performance against such a good forward line. Disappointing to lose, but it’s early days in this evolution and we need 3pts next week badly and be good to have the key spine of the team all available for a run of games from here.
  27. Chelsea 1 Liverpool 2

    Could have and should have drawn. The Mount and Michy missed chances towards the end were painful to say the least, and then Abraham should have buried his first half chance as well. One thing that's reasonable to say is that the youngsters(Tomori, Abraham and Mount) really dont look out of their depth at all. They can all hold their heads high so far this season. The careless free kick given away by Andreas Christensen that led to Trent Arnold's goal will add to his collection of head-in-hand moments. Rudiger comes back and I reckon its going to have to be Rudiger and Tomori based on Tomori's performances thus far IMO. Similarly, when Loftus-Cheek comes back I would say that Jorginho has to be the odd man out. The big question will be who gets dropped for Hudson-Odoi? But it is clearly going to be a very difficult season. We can get into top 4 because Arsenal, United and Spurs are all sh*t as well, but we are a long long way from being a consistent team.
  28. Chelsea 1 Liverpool 2

    Only caught the last fifteen minutes and thought with better finishing we’d have got a draw. Thought we had them under a lot of pressure. Bats had a free header and somehow missed the target. Mount’s effort was more difficult but it was still a decent chance. Can’t comment on much else. But I see we were undone from set pieces again. The fact that this is becoming an ongoing issue doesn’t bode well. However much progress we make, until we stop conceding such goals, it’ll count for nothing.
