  1. Newcastle 1 Chelsea 2

    What could have been a frustrating afternoon (& one that normally would have been) ended with a result that was justified. The passing game is improved but unless the ball goes in the net it just adds up to statistics. Where a team like city capitalise on their passing game is in having someone like Aguero to finish it all off, which we clearly do not have at present. This means that we are far more reliant on keeping clean sheets which in my opinion would benefit the inclusion of Christensen over Luiz as I have always thought that Luiz would be better just in front of the back line either playing out or helping as an extra defender when required . At least his occasional errors could be rectified by the back line. To me a back line of Dave, Rudi, Christensen & Alonso looks more solid. Surely to get this to work & flourish, getting someone like John Terry as a mentor would be a huge asset. With the back 4 being able to protect a new keeper still yet to establish himself, a midfield that has endless combinations, the missing piece needs to be getting a poacher in the box which we clearly cannot do until January at the earliest. Of course Morata & Giroud will come up trumps in games where teams don’t just pack the defence, but there will be more afternoons like today in the coming months. The upshot is that things look brighter than we thought they might, but we do need to make sure the defence is storm proof, which at present it certain is not.
  2. Chelsea 1 West Ham 1

    What I would like to see today is 3 forwards who can break at pace like they used to & who can play together, understanding each other’s movements. That’s where we have been lacking of late,we have not been taking our chances or being to ponderous when we break. The keeper, the defence & the midfield can cope provided the business is taken care of at the other end. There is no need to keep calling for a new manager or new players at this time of the season. Let’s utilise what we have which should be perfectly adequate against the teams we have to play. The side needs to get back to breaking at pace & being more clinical in front of goal. Come on you Blues!
  3. Chelsea 2 Bradford City 4

    Jose 'is ashamed'. So he should be & the all the players that represented Chelsea today. I hope that he gets that through to the squad not only for Tuesday & next week but for the rest of the season. Then remind them what an opportunity they are wasting for themselves , the club & the fans every time they slip into easy street mode. I've watched Chelsea since I was 12 (1965), this squad has talent & they shouldn't be tossing it away. A humiliating day for Chelsea. Well done to Bradford. Jose, earn your corn now & lets see something special from Tuesday on.
  4. Chelsea 1 Sunderland 2

    Rednapp look pumped up knowing is was the result his boys wanted. His opinion on the penalty was wrong & he made himself look silly & I think Hoddle knew it as well. No complaints if we don't win the league, it's not refereeing decisions but results like today, palace, stoke, west brom, west ham! Lets hope for a good CL semi & look forward to finding someone lethal up front. for next season.
