  1. Chelsea 2 Manchester City 0

    Once imagined, can never be unimagined ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
  2. Chelsea 2 Manchester City 0

    If you had been watching the live Official Club thread you will have watched Jason get pretty close to slashing his wrists during the first half, especially after the Wolves debacle. While we improved significantly in the second half this was a smash and grab raid akin to the CL final. Thank god City put Sterling up top although I suppose the media end up with the last word after the racist taunting was captured by the cameras.

    To be fair I think the two fullbacks are being left wide open by those ahead of them. Admittedly Alonso did have a poor game all round. Kante has had his confidence ripped out from underneath him by Sarri's comments and Hazard can't be expected to pull us out of the cack every single game. I don't think the team has regressed, I just think opposing teams have worked out how to deal with our tactics. We are devoid of a plan B, we just try different players in a fixed structure.

    An awful, awful game. The quinessential wet night in the midlands. We've finally become Arsenal.
  5. Chelsea 0 Everton 0

    Very frustrating although probably no more so than Borisov felt midweek. Unfortunately I fear Everton will not play like that very often against other top 4 contenders this season. Felt it was a mistake to start with an entire midfield devoid of scoring potential though. Alonso really does have a rather good attacking technique doesn't he?
  6. BATE Borisov 0 Chelsea 1

    Only managed to see the "highlights" and have to agree. Man of the match has to go to our goal frame.
  7. Burnley 0 Chelsea 4

    Not sure about Fabregas with the Barcelona (and Arsenal) connection. Certainly a consumate professional however. Hart man of the match imo.
  8. Burnley 0 Chelsea 4

    Well this is it. How will we do against an organised side with no Hazard? Personally I would have shoved RLC on as striker as I don't see Pedro or Willian being much assistance to Morata. Hopefully he will prove me wrong. Of course we don't know what goes on in training but I would have also added CHO at least to the subs to provide a threat of direct pace in the absence of Hazard.

    I don't think this is confined to Chelsea these days. Liverpool only did a few years ago because they had little option. I can't see them doing much more promoting in the short term with a league title a possibility. I would argue that all Premier League teams now only use youth when there is no alternative due to injury and/or suspension. It just so happens that our conditioning team appears to be among the best as we rarely see non match related injuries.

    While this is true we're dealing with real life and not Football Manager. Unless you're dealing with someone like Ibrahimovic then performance in training is going to be held in far greater regard as an indicator of form than the odd flash in the pan on Saturday. Similarly the occasional casual performance on the pitch will be excused if they continue to work their tits off in training.

    Well he needs to perform next time too. And the next. There was a post a few pages back where someone spoke to Jody Morris about him and it all seems to come down to the fact that he doesn't seem to train with quite the intensity compared with others. That's the thing really, unless you go out every single game and score an 8 or a 9 the coaches have to pick the team based on their performance in training. And if he's ambling through the sessions Sarri isn't going to hang his hat on an unrealistic hope that he is going to pull a hat trick out of the bag every game. Presumably this has all been explained to him though. The "experts" on BT Sport thought that he wouldn't be starting at the weekend though as he played the whole game and wasn't subbed. What I appreciated about the team last night was that they actually did play like a team. Last time we changed the starting XI wholesale we ended up with a collection of individuals that didn't gel at all. Of course they weren't put under much pressure, but still. Striker continues to be a worry.

    I can't say I was wholly impressed with RLC apart from the well taken goals. In open play he was hesitant to play the ball quickly and defensively he was weak. There could be an argument that we should try him as the forward the way he got into position and took his chances. He couldn't possibly be any less effective than the two currently in the squad.

    I think the main reason he doesn't go forward as much is because Alonso appears to spend the entire game these days in the opponents half.

    For pity’s sake it was one game. Thank god you’re not the manager.
