  1. Brentford 0 Chelsea 1

    Do we want to look like this and be top of the table or look like this and be mid table? I suggest a few chill out and accept not every game will be silky wins with clear tactics. I am happy we are getting wins when too often in the past we would not have.

    Dare I ask whats sticking out? Sure he doesnt wear a belt!
  3. Brentford 0 Chelsea 1

    Second rate team and we survived. Clean sheet as well. Brentford are the youth we were the experience. Fresh legs for the CL.
  4. Brentford 0 Chelsea 1

    Took one in the face for the team as well, not sure that came from the training ground. Great recommendation from Cech though.
  5. Brentford 0 Chelsea 1

    Also was in an offside position too often to be a choice and lost the ball from under his feet
  6. Brentford 0 Chelsea 1

    agreed. RLC moves like Ballack used to, looks effortless and covers a lot of ground. Doesn't quite play like him but still very useful. Would like to see him next to Jorg
  7. Brentford 0 Chelsea 1

    Another Lukaku fail. Well played RLC particularly in the first half and Mendy what a keeper. To be fair it was a second string team and Brentford will make it difficult for many this season.
  8. VAR and Chelsea

    What is the point of VAR and is it anti Chelsea? At the end of the day VAR is just another referee in a room somewhere so if we believe refs are anti Chelsea on the pitch why should an anonymous ref be any different. Yesterday, we could have had a pen when Dave was fouled by serial fouler Stiepermann and a number of other challenges should have been covered by VAR if its to work how I think it should. Feel free to log pro and contro decisions relating to VAR
  9. VAR and Chelsea

    Only turned on to hear what they had to say and as you say it doesnt fit their agenda
  10. Chelsea 3 Southampton 1

    Openly I wasnt a fan and am yet to be convinced this time around but I am open to being convinced because I always thought we needed a number 9 type of player to aim at. Having spent so much on him we have to make it work but last year without a fixed target man we were more dangerous that we are now. Seemed to me he spent his whole time against soton telling others where to go and who to push. I thought his contribution was negligible and it meant we were playing with 10, he was bought to score in these type of games where we didn't score last season and thats his only job. As to another day he could have had at least 2. I will wait for that other day as he has not had one of those yet with us to prove those other days exist.

    Fortunately our defence remains strong. 2 pens, 1 massively deflected shot and a goal after 15 seconds. So few I remember them all
  12. Chelsea 3 Southampton 1

    Cameos this season? Barkley has only played 10 mins in prem and a little more in the CL so not a lot to judge on. Likewise RLC but I think he looks much more composed Lukaku, I fear is a distraction to the way we won last season. He still has no first touch and if continues being unable to influence this type of game we have bought the Lukaku who failed at Utd
  13. VAR and Chelsea

    incredible... from that challenge, which honestly looked 50% slip, in full view of ref and lino, the ball went all the way across the pitch and came back to the centre to score. Its just too long and VAR is calling the ref and lino incompetent. Enough of VAR, I preferred human error by the ref. just as players make human errors. VAR, just gives a VAR ref who doesnt have to face the crowd, a chance to make a biased decision.
  14. VAR and Chelsea

    I thought they had eliminated looking back at the build up play or was that only for accidental handballs
  15. Chelsea 3 Southampton 1

    I'd choose RLC over Barkley every day.
  16. Chelsea 3 Southampton 1

    agree, some very inconsistent decisions Positives: RLC, Timo, Chalobah, return of Mount and we beat VAR (mike Dean if he was the VAR ref) Negatives: Lukaku was bought for this type of game but was anonymous, CHO is trying too hard and failing
  17. Chelsea 3 Southampton 1

    Timooooooooo, can't take that one away....or can they
  18. Chelsea 3 Southampton 1

  25. Chelsea 3 Southampton 1

    Playing well, I like RLC, the way he moves reminds me of Ballack
