  1. Chelsea 1 Manchester City 3

    Exactly this. This wasn't an episode of Ready Steady Cook, where some random has handed a £5 bag of ingredients to a chef and said "here's some shopping, cook with that".
  2. Official: Frank Lampard Appointed Chelsea Head Coach

    I've been as patient as I can, but I want to see something formulating. You want to see signs of progress to let you know you're on to a winner - then you can accept the bumps along the way. That is not what's happening here. In short, I don't know what the flip he's trying to do, and in all honesty, I don't think he does either. He has to go. Ideally this week. No point stringing this on.

    All feels a bit "Banquo's Ghost" to me.
  4. Chelsea 1 Manchester City 3

    Without being unkind, I think a dozen managers currently in the Premier League can make a better fist of this job.

    Getting dicked violated in a wholly inappropriate way here.

    Fully expecting Zack Steffen to turn into Manuel Neuer for ninety minutes, before United stick four past him next week.

    Like the front three, on the other hand - Anthony Taylor.
  8. Arsenal 3 Chelsea 1

    That's what I find disappointing, he was in credit (top four after a transfer ban, etc) and strengthening our coaching staff (with the right personnel) would given us a greater chance of us pushing on, going into a season where a lot of teams would be looking to improve on last seasons showing. But to more or less neglect it seems like a very deliberate choice and a bad one.

    I just think there's a fair few managers that could get more of a tune out of this squad. I suppose the question is how long do you stick when the signs aren't encouraging enough?
  10. Arsenal 3 Chelsea 1

    All feeling a bit "the faster you act, the more of a person club you save". We have a very good squad and it's being squandered. He wanted Havertz and he wanted Werner and I don't think he has a clue on how to utilise the talents of either of them. If you're going to accept the whole work in progress/giving people time thing, you want to see discernible signs of progress and lessons being learnt along the way. That's simply not happening and being honest, there's no evidence pointing towards that changing anytime soon. All I see is someone who looks in the wrong places for answers, and we'll continue to struggle because of it. How many current Premier League managers would do a more competent job? I think it's into double figures. What would Thomas Tuchel do with this squad? He'd have us challenging, that's for sure.
  11. Arsenal 3 Chelsea 1

    I think that's (near enough) actually the case. He had a great record but he's been worked out.
  12. Arsenal 3 Chelsea 1

    He doesn't know how to setup a midfield, it's been different shades of most of this season. Kante and Kovacic should be a non-starter.
  13. Arsenal 3 Chelsea 1

    If he's up to the job, then he gets us out of this.
  14. Taking The Pee Out Of Liverpool (For Khobar)

    I'll be honest, I'm glad Liverpool have got their s**t together because the alternative is probably Mourinho's Tottenham winning the title, and that's something I never want to see.
