  1. Official: Frank Lampard Sacked As Chelsea Head Coach

    Hope to see Mount retained as captain going forward.

    Pulisic, Werner and Havertz are all good players and positives for the team whether they were the managers first choices or not. I am sure we are not the only club who buys instead of the manager. After all clubs are normally there longer than managers (particularly so in our case)

    absolutely, said the man who imposes his opinion on everyone.

    Only winning against Luton, Morcambe and Fulham in recent times is not enough. Sad to see it end this way but Frank didn't have answers in Prem games.

    Not at all surprised. Was a fabulous appointment for last season but I couldnt see how he and Jody were going to change our direction which was slowly slipping down the table.

    Agreed and how did we let Barkley go, he looks good at Villa.

    We were lucky Fulham went down to 10 for half a game otherwise it could well have been even worse.

    Arsene's success at the beginning was because he inherited a strong defence.....no reason for him to join us

    Maybe but a significant coach we may have wanted to stay long term wouldnt have come to play with a team of newbies for that we needed a club man and one that knew something about the youth set up.

    Ramble coming up.... Nothing wrong in appointing Frank when we did. We ere in a sticky situation with the ban and our best player leaving so we needed someone capable and knowledgeable of our famed youth to integrate them. He was absolutely the right man and did a great job getting us into Europe. Where it is now unravelling, and its a surprise to me as they are his peers, is that he seems unable to set up experienced players at either end. We have masses of attacking players who seem allergic to getting the ball into the 6 yard box as quick as possible. Is it they all think they are the superstars and will score alone or is it they don't trust the CF to do anything with it? You will never score if the ball doesn't go near the goal. I try to avoid watching Liverpool but I saw that their wide players were continuously hitting first time crosses in without the need to always try and beat 3 players first. Defensively we are too often victims of our own possession, a bermuda triangle of passes often working our way backwards for the keeper to then hoof it forward, something the defenders could have done earlier or one of our pass loving defenders passes it to the oppo at the end of a 15 pass movement around the triangle. With Zouma and Chilwel being particularly guilty. Its not all gloom and doom as clearly we have some talented players but, apart from Mount who has developed nicely, they need to think and act quicker. Pulisic, Werner and Havertz were all top, highly productive players many clubs would love to have but until we get a more physical CF I fear there will be no direct passes in and until we get a couple of accomplished defenders we will continue to gift possession. Silva is a short time plaster and I think Mendy is a good addition. I was and still want to be a big fan of Frank but I don't think he knows what to do anymore and Jody was a support last season with the youth but he is also out of his depth with senior players. I would also like to hear more from him about why he seems to freeze players out who perform successfully at country level like Barkley, Jorg and Rudi. Are the countries wrong or is Frank unable to manage them.

    True but we also need a direction.

    The German guy from PSG is the only one who might get something from our Germans. I am just pissed Frank couldnt do it as I so wanted it to work.
