  1. Chelsea 0 Bayern Munich 3

    No point in asking Ross to create, that can be left to "smart" players like Jorginho and Kova. But seeing Ross chase down Bayren players and disrupting the play in their half can be useful. Again I would play Willian just because he is a better player but would not be mad at seeing Ross start.
  2. Chelsea 0 Bayern Munich 3

    Some mention here how 3 at the back failed against Arsenal. I got a theory it did fail because we had Emerson playing in the left and not Alonso who turns world class in that formation. as for Bayern game with so many injuries to wide players we don’t have a choice but to go for 3-4-3 with two AMs floating behind Giroud. Willian will probably be a better choice for a big game than Ross but I wouldn’t be mad if Ross retains his place. Extra muscle in midfield wouldn’t be bad vs Bayern.
  3. Chelsea 3 Burnley 0

    Finally a good home game. Highlights for me are James and CHO playing extremely well. I also thought Barkley provided a solid Box to Box performance. He almost feels more natural against packed defences than Kante. If I have to be picky I can point out Tammy's wastefulness in from of Goal. This is not the first game where he should have at least two goals to his name. Just too late and too inaccurate on many occasions.
  4. Everton 3 Chelsea 1

    Always thought Christensesn is the most overhyped player in Chelsea squad in years. Awful defender. Mid table German team is about his level really. Zoumas level we always knew. Stoke City/everton bench. Keep been doing his routine wayward ball thing for 2 years now. Many players are guilty of keeping the ball for too long instead of shooting. Rudiger and his injury really robbed us of top 4 this year.
  5. Chelsea 2 Crystal Palace 0

    can't blame them. English manger who plays local academy lads every week. This is much more appealing to the public/pundits than a team full of mercenaries. Yet, why is Man City so popular with pundits???
  6. Chelsea 0 Valencia 1

    Almost certainly Frank is lying. Why would Barkley be number 1 penalty take when he doesn’t play more than 10 minutes a game? In other news, Frank is also guilty of playing just out of injury Pedro over Pulisic. As well as going 442 all of a sudden. I think it clear that Frank struggles with the subs.
  7. Wolves 2 Chelsea 5

    Its not the only game where we conceded easy goals. 4 against united, 2 vs Sheffield, 2 vs Liverpool, 1 vs Leicester , 2 vs Wolves.
  8. Wolves 2 Chelsea 5

    I hope this is true. Its safe to say that 3-4-3 worked a treat today. 2-5 away at wolves is as good result as we could have hoped for.
  9. Chelsea 2 Sheffield United 2

    Is this our youngest team in 40 years?
  10. Chelsea 2 Sheffield United 2

    Why Tomori? Lampard thinks Christinsen been poor perhaps?

    Fun line up but defenders and central midfield are very weak .

    I blame Sarri for the situation . CHO doesn’t want a sign contract because there was no faith shown in him by the manager . Recently it seems Sarri was briefed to give some words of encouragement and promise some game time , but it’s a little too late and CHO is not stupid . A very good young player , Bayern Munich are well run club and must see something in him which Sarri failed to spot.

    Losing him was such a non issue. I think Kepa is playing more or less on the same level as TC did ( in Chelsea shirt) for us. If not better, he is also younger and suits possession football more. H
  15. I think it’s safe to say that Sarri and his football so far been underwhelming. He really does remind me of Scolari . My prediction , he won’t last here.
