    Shame the VAR decision is taking up most of the conversation. Last night, was one of our best performances in a long time, it's a shame we are not discussing that. The way we played out from the back against a high press, was a good as I have seen any team play. Christensen has been mentioned by a few but what about Rudiger, absolutely colossal. A proper top quality centre half that nearly everyone on here wanted rid of. Jorginho has been phenomenal all through this run, another player most dont want, and last night he played a slightly different role than he does when paired with Kovacic. He played as a proper DM and was a rock defensively plus his usual brilliant self with the ball and dictating play without. It allowed Kante, who some thought wouldn't get back in the side to play his best role, alongside a proper DM in a pivot, or the double 6 as Tuchel likes to call it. Absolutely back to his best and the best in the world at what he does. Some top performances all round and an incredible team performance are sadly being over shadowed by a decision, as bad as it was, has been happening all season, to every club.

    I think you hit the 'nail on the head' with why Tuchel pulled him. CHO was not 'buying in' to what he was told to do. Tuchel was totally honest and told "us" why he pulled him in the post match interview. We don't need to speculate. Experience is a much better teacher than words. Tuchel had been telling him and the message was not sinking in. He pulled him to make his point. I find it funny that so many on this forum (including me) complain about the attitude, work ethic and enthusiasm of the players, but then also complain when the manager does something to correct the very thing we complain about. I agree that Tuchel could of chosen other players to pick on yesterday, but I think he sees CHO's huge potential and he wants him to start making steps to reach it. Someone here in this 'thread' compared the work ethic of Mount to CHO... can you imagine what an awesome player CHO would become if he could reach that level of commitment consistently every game, and doing what the manager has asked him to do.

    Don't know that I can be bothered to watch us sign him for £100m only for him to somehow score only 3 goals next season.

    Think this is the right place to post some thoughts.....Khobar's Legacy came from a gentle tribute to a real Chelsea man and his approach,as I remember it, to the game. Thinking about the "back and forth" of debate on here there seems to be a fluid set of lines defining us posters.....there are some absolutely brilliant game analysts on here...some world weary long term fans who can still raise a smile and support of OUR club ....some rather intense commentators.....and a bunch of very funny quick responders who pick up on obscure "mentions" and run with it to my delight if no one else!....the somewhat unique aspect..for me, is that nearly everyone slips into every catagory at some time or another and makes the whole thing work waaay above the slimy depths of, say, the DM comments. Really just saying Thank You to everyone here as we enter the second year of the strangest times, for helping me/us all to cope with such a difficult period. AND..a special Thank You to Jane and Michael for such valiant efforts to keep us up and running and on the :right" track!

    In the light of last night's performance, his reaction just makes him look silly and confirms the ridiculous lengths he'll go to with his many agendas.

    Whoever claims Kanté is the better passer of the ball must be joking. What a player Maka was. Technique, positioning, defensive ability and ability to get us on the counter quick. He was the complete package for a defensive mid. Only thing he really lacked was a mean shot. Other than that, he had it all.

    Christensen was always decent as the baller in a back three. Put him in a back four or in Azpi’s/Rudigers positions and he becomes a different player. It’s fine to use him as long as we intend to play as a three. A back four is impossible with Christensen in it. Ditto Rudiger. I haven’t seen anything so far under Tuchel that makes me reconsider that.

    If Tuchel thinks CHO deserved that then how did Ziyech and Pulisic not get hooked off after 15 mins against Barnsley? Tuchel wanted to set an example and he used a young academy player to do it rather than an experienced player or an expensive one. Let’s see the same energy for other players when they are playing poor then I would believe he’s being honest. I heard him say last week that Pulisic and Ziyech deserve more game time while they stink up the place. I'm just surprised people think CHO deserved it after that performance. Alonso and Werner were far worse and they both got to compete a full 90.

    Not sure what is the sense behind tearing CHO apart like that publicly is all about.... the whole team has been rubbish since Tuchel took over. I cannot recall a single game that I've said "right, this guy has really changed things here". If he gets us a trophy, then fair play to him but these games are really hard to watch at the moment.

    And as for trying to deny a penalty where the Liverpool player , slides in at speed , completely misses the ball and impedes the progress of the Everton player , well , that just shows what a stooge for Liverpool he is .

    Well, anyone with a functioning set of eyes will have noticed that Mendy is the much better keeper. He beats Kepa at everything. It’s one of the most bizarre calls I’ve ever seen from a Chelsea manager. If this doesn’t come off Tuchel will look like a clown considering we are finally within touching distance from a top four. Difficult set of fixtures coming up... We can’t afford losing points here.

    No bother, I’m sure the physical colossus Christensen & the master of concentration, Rudiger will keep him in check 🙄

    What a load of absolute nonsense. When the office contrarian is fighting your corner you know you're in trouble. Row Z is right in front of Rudiger at all times. Instead he kicks it into the net. Those are the only facts.

    He did it on 3 occasions last night. Two very good assist passes (one offside) and then an inventive scoop pass for Giroud, which he didn't pull off quite right , but the invention and intention was there. You always seem to make out its only Jorginho who can spot and deliver the passes, its simply not true though. Kovacic has been spotting and delivering good and inventive passes in the last 4 games under Tuchel. More so than Jorginho in these games.

    They have huge problems in defence and midfield and we have huge problems in midfield and attack.

    Just like Sarri we don’t create enough chances. This time we create even less. Difference? Hazard. Lampard didn’t have Hazard so had to be more adventurous. That made us weaker defensively while conceding far too many due to Kepa being useless. I’ve said this countless times - without Hazard we need a more attacking set-up to score goals. Was laughed at in here. Well, I think it is pretty clear really. We don’t create more than 1-2 chances per game regardless of who we play. Not sustainable. I said at the time no way that’s a penalty. Greenwood clearly pushes Odoi’s hand to the ball. It actually looked to me that Greenwood tried to use his upper arm to get the ball with him but hit Odoi’s hand by mistake. A split second later Greenwood has his upper arm all over the ball. If that would have been given as a penalty it would have been a joke. The free-kick that created the situation even more of a joke - Mount being kicked down by a high foot from McTominay.

    I can think of a few reasons, unfortunately. Tammy is just not quite good enough for this level in my opinion, his decision making isn’t great, he isn’t strong enough and his touch often lets him down. Tuchel has given him a few chances, but he’s never really taken advantage of them, he hasn’t had a real stand out game for quite a while now, which for a striker, is not a good thing at all.

    I understand Atletico's tactics of playing not to concede in the first leg when it's away and then looking to win the tie in the home leg via a score draw or better, but last night was a pretty extreme version of that. For the majority of the game, they were playing 631 and just completely surrendered possession. One of the biggest issues with approaching a game like that is that if the opponent does eventually break you down, to try and switch into attacking mode is very difficult. Just very bizarre to see such extreme tactics from the league leaders in Spain against a Chelsea side with a new manager who struggles to score goals! Anyway, on to Chelsea, it was a good performance, a great result but only a good performance, which I suppose is a good thing because it means we can be better than that. I'm not looking to be too critical, but we simply have to create more chances and I know it's hard against a team that sits so deep with so many, but we need to be able to draw teams like that out more and create spaces for each other. I felt like a big difference in the second half was that on a few occasions Mount and Kovacic in particular actually took on an opponent or two, to break the line and make some space, which meant the Atletico defenders had something else to think about and someone from the back 6 had to step out to meet the attacking player. I don't know if it's a tactical thing or a confidence thing, but I just think we need to take more calculated risks in our game, to help us open up the chances. But, it was a great result, away from home in CL knockout a 1-0 win is brilliant, it's just a shame we'll now lose Jorginho and Mount for the second leg, both were crucial to our performance last night, so will be a big miss. Back 3 played well, especially Christensen, who seems to slowly be finding that confidence and form he had pre-Barcelona, which is good to see. I wonder if he could play in a 3 with Silva in the middle or if that would expose him too much? Jorginho and Kovacic did well, I still want to see more from them though, I wish one of them could support attacks better, making runs into the box etc, I think this is the downside to the way we currently set up, we almost play with 5 across the front, meaning no late runners into the box. Werner worked hard and caused them problems. CHO did well wide on the right, but should maybe have hugged the line a little more. Alonso did well and I was one of those suggesting Chilwell should have started ahead of him, but his experience showed last night and I think he managed the game ad occasion really well. Mount just doing Mount things and being superb and Giroud coming up with the magic yet again, his top 10 goal compilation must be the best in world football! We move on to Man United and Liverpool now, which will be the real test - come through those and we could be on for a good end to the season...

    Sorry this is all post hoc b/s. Again not as I recall - in anycase we bought Torres that January - that suggests we never intended to buy Aguero. I don't recall at the time, anyone linking us with Aguero, just a hell of a lot of "I told you soes" a year or two later. (and quite a few who claimed how they had always said we should have outbid AM for him as an 18 yo).

    I'm tempted to test how far he'd go to be contrary by putting it out there that I personally consider Messi to be a better footballer than Jermain Jenas.
