  1. Chelsea vs Norwich City

    Wouldn't it be more relevant to compare net outlay?

    Yeah and he didn't do it in one season after having a one year transfer ban.

    Firstly Allison is a GK. Secondly Trent-Arnold was home grown like our emerging kids and Robertson was very much a punt that worked out. It was van Dyke that was the catalyst without a single doubt. The fact that we're underperforming as a team in certain games is not a reason to sell the whole lot and start again as some people are suggesting. Maybe a little consideration for this season's circumstances is in order. No signings for over a year and an over reliance on kids, yet we are still going to end up in the CL places (probably) compared with pre-season forecasts of mid table mediocrity (or worse). I think people need to grow up and start backing the players we've got rather than rubbishing them every time we don't win. Sometimes I despair of our so called supporters.

    I wouldn't call that the trouble with Frank, more the trouble with the players? I don't think there is any danger of them "not rating" Frank. I also don't agree with your theory on Willian either but if the "senior pros" just amount to him and Giroud then I don't see a problem. The rest of the experienced players, including the captain, seem well onside. I think it just comes down to the fact that there is little leadership on the pitch and most of the players are incapable of original thought. And that is just patent rubbish. I'll reiterate my comment about the Scum. The inclusion of just one player VVD did wonders. It's not a cartload of players we need, it's one or two leaders that we need. One player leading by word and example will allow the existing players to realise their potential.

    Well he did captain Brazil in the WC semi against Germany.....oh wait...

    Just watched Frank's post match interview on Chelsea TV and I have to say he had the air of a frustrated man. He didn't shun his responsibilities however he also alluded to the fact the defense isn't good enough, that they don't play the way they told in training. He wasn't throwing anyone under the bus but reading between the lines you get the feeling that a lot of the players are going to be given some hard truths and that if they don't screw their heads on properly they will be off the squad come next season. He certainly wasn't ruling out the possibility of new defenders in place come September.

    He's not done too brilliantly at AV to be fair.

    We need to employ a defense coach?
  9. Sheffield United 3 Chelsea 0

    If you remember the filthy Scum had a rubbish defence and just the addition of one player was enough to energise the whole team. Maybe we don’t need wholesale change, just one player that knows what the hell he’s doing. Could we just end the season now please, I feel like flushing my own head down the toilet after that performance.

    It was to take account of the swealtering temperatures we experience in the UK in summer. Err.

    The fannying about at the back with the ball is weakening. Surely, you see the opposition closing you down high then you boot it over the top until they stop being so aggressive. It's as if they're thinking "Frank told us to play out so we have to do it all the time. Oops we've let one in. Still, keep playing out from the back" Definitiion of insanity is to keep doing the same old thing expecting the outcome to change.

    It's not so much high balls, it's bullying us in the way Essien, Ballack, Drogba et al used to do it to the opposition. We used to steamroller sides physically. That happens to us although in our case all too often the bullying is mental rather than physical.

    I was born in the far west of Wales where the closest professional football team was Swansea Town (they didn't become City until 1969) and they were in the old 4th division, two hours drive away. The reason I started following Chelsea? The team had a lovely blue kit with white socks and a white stripe down the shorts with the number on the leg. That's the embarrassingly shallow reason I've been supporting Chelsea for over 50 years. Maybe Kelly Cates et al just don't like a blue and white combo, it could just be that ;-)

    I don't think it's a question of fitness. I think we're just a small team and can get hustled off the ball if teams decide to throw everything at us towards the end of games. Even the GK is small and doesn't give the reassurance to the defenders in front of him, none of which are particularly blessed with determination and concentration.

    Can someone please explain something to me? Our goal difference is just +17. The Scum and City both have a goal difference of +47 and Leicester's is +32 before tonights game. How the hell are we still in touch with second? I'll tell you what though, so many games won by just the odd goal has done nothing for my blood pressure this season, but it could have been so much worse. Tonight is a case in point, I came away from this thinking we could have snatched defeat from the jaws of victory. We need to be more ruthless next season, and that only comes with a bit experience and moral presence.
