  1. Chelsea 4 Slavia Prague 3 (5-3 Agg)

    You're correctly identifying the lack of "defense" for our defenders and I think that in a nutshell is the issue. The back four aren't as terrible as many suggest (especially when Rudiger is in there), it is just that often there are only three of them there as one of the fullbacks will invariably be upfield and no-one from midfield has slotted back properly. All too often it is a ball in behind and the defenders are chasing back alongside the attackers rather than being in a position to give themselves a yard or two on the opposition. It is bizarre that an Italian finds it so difficult to construct a solid defense that is also very weak at defending set plays. Prague's goal from the corner was the result of Barkley defending fresh air rather than the player coming in for a free header. It's ironic that a midfield that is almost entirely devoid of any attacking capability is also so rubbish at defending.

    So what's the excuse our referees use?

    Didn't they blame that on Conte too? Precious little snowflakes.

    How a team that has been as inconsistent as we have been this season can be so complacent is beyond me. You have to lay the blame at the manager's door when a team almost snatches defeat from the jaws of victory after the half time interval. Surely his only job at that point was to ensure the players kept their concentration?

    More sensible the idea of Salah going to RM with the potential shirt sales in Egypt.

    Well they'd have nothing else on other than going out nicking cars.

    So I hear Chelsea TV is shutting down on Sky in July. Switching to internet only.
  8. I'd say Sarri is lucky to have been in post during a period when Roman has lost a degree of interest in the club. If he had been sitting in his box every game as during the early years of his regime I'm pretty sure Sarri would have been gone by Christmas. As it is he will make it to the end of the season and his future will depend on whether or not the board can find anyone remotely suitable to replace him. A squad of sheep without Hazard and replacements unlikely it looks like being a gig destined to fail next year. Hopefully SFL will turn his mobile off over the summer.

    Our away form in the league in 2019. Doesn't make for pretty reading. In addition we have lost our last 6 away games against the other top 6 sides. It's all quite depressing.

    He probably wasn't to be fair but Jorginho is far too safe. The whole ethos of our midfield under Sarri is to move the ball quickly There appears to be no incentive to consider the incisive forward through ball. Consequently the forwards have to come back to retrieve the ball then attempt to weave through two lines of defenders. If not for Hazard then our season would have been that much worse. It's difficult to forecast what Jorginho's future at Chelsea is if Sarri were to leave.

    Do you really want another season of this? I think we all now realise why he never actually won anything in Italy.

    I fear we will be scummed.

    I'd argue that Jorginho and Kovacic aren't up to it and that we'd be better off with the second string. Playing those two along with Barkley in the midfield was asking for the clueless performance tonight. Jorginho and Kovacic provide no attacking threat whatsoever, as well as little defensive ability, while Barkley is the rather slow dimwitted boy that always got picked last in the playground and is only at the club because of his nationality. I've got no issue with Hazard leaving at the end of the season. Hopefully we will get a bucket load of cash as well as an injection of self belief into the remaining members of the squad. I'd like to think that out of the dross there may emerge a few characters and a team ethic. Dreams eh?

    Could someone explain to me how Kovacic ever got to play for Real Madrid?
