    I think you can in a confidence dip. I can't begin to imagine what that level of pressure is like when you're in a new country, at a new club and in a serious goal drought as a number 9 whose main job is to put the ball in the back of the net. I still reckon he'll come good.

    20 odd games in now. Have we ever signed a player who cost so much and has been so bad!? At least the likes of Sutton, Fleck could do the basics. They were probably the right players at the wrong time. If you could get £30 million back for him in the summer. I would snap their hands off right now.

    Even though it sounds like the wrong answer, and given your track record, is it Lampard?
  5. Fulham 0 Chelsea 1

    Lol...but there is a little bit of truth in that. I think since Drogba we as a club now expect a lot off a striker, and Costa being the closest to Drogba we've had was successful because he has such a rounded game. When I watch other teams, most of the time their style is based around supplying the striker, getting the ball into dangerous areas for the striker to get on the end of, supporting the striker in giving options to play off. When I watch us it's almost as if we wait for the striker to pull something out of the hat, they're expected to make their own goals; personally I think the team needs to do more to support our striker, regardless of which striker plays. If we wanted a striker to do it all up top on their own then Jimenez would have been the striker to go for.

    Because of the immediate asterisks, unless MT and Jane are that quick on the draw

    I'm going to test that theory at some stage when the computer is not expecting it. What are you trying to say?

    Who sold the idea to the management?
  9. Fulham 0 Chelsea 1

    Yes Pete but they're saying it wasn't a red card because it wasn't ten years ago. It is and it was, now. I've seen Chelsea players sent off for far less.

    And how do you know that anyway? Quite right. It might be a small man called Maxwell who chooses which words to strike out with his silver hammer.

    Nah, last season the midfield was completely open to the counter all the time. All that happened this season is that people gave the new players too much respect. Once they figured out you can just run past or bypass the midfield with a single ball still, they all started doing it again.

    He put a Chelsea shirt on.

    And how do you know that anyway?

    Well it certainly wasn’t pretty but a wins a win however it happens. I think (and I might be the only one) that we’re worse since the new players arrived. Without them the midfield was settled and there wasn’t as much chopping and changing the starting 11 which in turn led to better performances than we’re seeing this season. It definitely appears that Frank feels he has to play them to the detriment of the likes of CHO. On to Leicester!

    Bridge and Redknapp agree with you that Rudiger was great. Maybe I was has happened before.
  16. Fulham 0 Chelsea 1

    Yeh, but what factors are included in it mate?
  17. Fulham 0 Chelsea 1

    He has no technical quality. You don't lose the ability to control the ball, pass and dribble overnight so it's clear he never had those qualities to begin with. He can run fast and that's about it.

    That explains it. We're the only country to use that word 🤣

    The filter is an algorithm.
  20. Fulham 0 Chelsea 1

    We don't seem to get that luxury as chelsea fans chara lol.
  21. Fulham 0 Chelsea 1

    Only thing I'll say is if the team were performing better than they are and he was still missing sitters then I would be more concerned but right now with the exception of a couple nobody is covering themselves in glory.

    It's who you know.........and who you are..........
  23. Fulham 0 Chelsea 1

    That is a VERY impressive, calm and accurate post so soon after the game! Worried now as I can't see for the life of me where the team is going. Looking at the bech today they could all have been on the pitch plus any three others. Would it have been any better? Fulham didn't look frightened of Chelsea at any stage. Absolute locked on red...from the side angle no question.... Where was the enjoyment watching this game apart from the result?
  24. Fulham 0 Chelsea 1

    Panic stations for the last 10 minutes of that game. Embarrassing to watch. Having said that, it’s always difficult to break down a team with 10 men, especially at a ground like Fulham’s. Needed that win badly. Hopefully the players will take confidence from that and move on
  25. Fulham 0 Chelsea 1

    So the funny thing is that our best players of the first 60 mins were comfortably Jorginho and Ziyech (who was a real pleasure to watch). Jorginho first off of course. Kovacic stayed on throughout even as we had something like 90% possession and the ball kept coming back to us with long clearances. Then with the sensible idea of having 2 big CBs for crosses, we kept our left footed winger and best crosser out on the Right wing. We kept a right footed dribbler out on the Left wing, and they both went wider with the FBs coming inside them (reverse of first half). Instead of moving Ziyech to LW and taking off Pulisic, CHO came on for Ziyech. So much for crossing to 2 big strikers. We won, the result was never much in doubt, has we had a bit of luck H1 and scored it would have been one of those cakewalks we had earlier in the season when people were getting so excited about our run of wins against poor teams. It was more of the same, no better and no worse than the rest of the season. CHO was good, and I feel sure that he was being kept back for Leicester. Keepers - more evidence that Mendy comes out too far. Not an issue in itself, just that the success when he comes out and it works has to offset what happens when it doesn't. Huge error by their keeper to palm it out to Mount, and while he made a few good saves such hopeful palms were a feature of his game. quoted just so Ham doesn't feel he is the only idiot on the forum. Brave, I would have pulled out of both challenges. I thought the second might have been red (but saw nothing in any penalty claims) Absolutely. Not so sure they would have kept it up if we had got an earlier goal, but as it played out they really were valiant. No I would say that the Leeds game was the single exception all season. That was the peak, we were no better before. We even out ran them. But given Leeds' subsequent results, even that was not that special.

    How can a supposedly world class striker plunge to the depths that Werner has sunk too, I get strikers have periods where nothing works for them but this is getting ridiculous.
