  1. Official: Chelsea Part Ways With Antonio Conte

    I heard that was down to a UK hacker. Although it's a decent attempt to deflect attention Mr Kelly, you remain the number one suspect and 'boys in blue' may soon take on a whole new meaning for you Mark!

    Not just this season but several more too! This has been a growing concern for several months now. The biggest mystery is why the board did not forsee the danger(s) and take decisive action. They can sit around blaming each other and everybody else. Ultimately this was someone's responsibility, they failed in their duty and that is unacceptable. Confronted by the consequences of those failings, Roman must himself take decisive action. Excuses count for nothing.

    Citeh's front 5 of KdB, Silva, Sterling, Jesus & Sane couldn't score so any surprise that our inferior front 5 (Cesc, Pedro, Willian, Morata & Zappa) couldn't? The club needs UCL to attract new players and to generate the funding. It is irrational to rate FAC above our future. It is a nice addition to UCL qualification but absolutely no replacement for abrighter future.

    But they showed vs Citeh that they can be difficult to break down, which helps explain only 5 shots on target. I certainly agree with rotating but there is an art to it and that does not mean weakening the team in what was our l;ast chance to exert pressure for a UCL place. Even in a game of less importance you dont 'rotate in' 3 players who're all out of form ie Pedro, Zappa and Christensen with a hit and miss Morata. Also, when Moses is at last looking decent why take him out? Roatation is geared towards resting those needing a break, keeping squad players involved, trying new combinations, affording injury recovery, mental freshness and developing younger players. Roitation is not about wrecking your final and totally undeserved sniff at a UCL place. Ofc he could be hell bent on getting away and/or wanting to win FAC.

    Really? Discount the flukey face goal. 3 of the other 6 have been direct free kicks (he's a monoppoly on right side free kicks around the oppo box), he has one header from a corner which our AM would not be challenging for. His open play goal vs spuds was in the striker's area, as was his goal v L'Arse.

    In this thread that surely is where the blame lies given his farcical selection. Whilst he persists with Cesc partnering Kante he's nowhere to hide as it plays to both player's weaknesses whilst negating their strengths - even Blind Pugh would see that! That is made worse by starting Zappa ahead of Moses and starting the lamentable Pedro. Giroud had to be punished for ignoring AC to run and hug DL in celebration of a goal and if Christensen can't cope against these, that really does pose serious questions.

    "Two legged semi’s in January a killer." is what I was replying to. Not just 2 semis, but 2 games when we should win the first and avoid the second. I'm sick and tired of Pedro contributing nothing whilst decent young prospects are wasted, he's a poor squad player so why not invest in the future? I've long advocated rotating young players against weaker sides so they gain experience and can do a job when needed. Kenedy & Batman were both picked for the Norwich away game, with Ampadu added for the home. There was more than enough quality to win either game, yet we couldn't and so wasted energies when the fixtures were piling up.
  8. Squad Status: 2018/2019 Season

    How do you get that Christensen was a positive? He is young with 2 Gerrman seasons experience. A good foundation to work on and build from. But we dropped him in the deep end and he simply couldn't cope. Revisit Roma at the Bridge, see him letting Huddersfield in last night and a whole lot in between. I'm sure he did his best but he is nowhere near the finished article and so will always come up short against better oposition. Cahill makes us look more secure when played centrally, though granted he's vulnerable on the flank as was clear back in September. Rudi's done well.

    Having 23 shots would very rarely equate to 23 chances created. And we most definitely did not create 23 chances. You watched it - yes?

    But they dont stand around waiting. When I wrote of Moses's attributes I did point out that he and Alonso are both very quick to adopt a receiving position when our opponents attack breaks down. Moses is frequently involved in our area in open play, moreso than Alonso who has to conserve energy. Kante has not had a great season becuse he's been involved further upfield which does not play to his strengths. The primary reason being that is Cesc's hoplessly immoblile and simply cannot gain ground to support attacks and even if he did, he'd not make it back. One of AC's best examples radical thinking / desire to mess up our season and immediate future - keep a (supposedly) good passer back where he's rubbish and push a defender who's not that good on the ball upfield. I see you agree about Christensen's contribution to their goal.

    How many of those 22 shots were a realistic scoring option , never mind the best option? Anyone can get their shot away, but only 5 on target?

    Wouldnt have been quite so bad if we'd beaten Norwich away and not brought them back to the bridge for another 90 + ET (and pens).
  13. Chelsea 1 Huddersfield Town 1

    Cesc has made 4 EPL assists in >2300 minutes. That is one assist every 6 games. We need a creator too.

    They were both around in Jose's last (partial) season.

    What about Christensen losing the goalscorer and being unable to make up any ground at all? Granted Rudi & WC could have cleared up better but what on earth was Christensen up to?
