  1. Official: Frank Lampard Sacked As Chelsea Head Coach

    I’ll still wait for what Matt Law says. He’s usually ahead of everyone else when it comes to Chelsea news. I don’t consider him as a bs type of journalist. Either he was fed wrong info from someone in the club as an attempt so smudge Rudiger or something may have happened. If something did happen it may also have been blown out of proportion. The club are very aware of social media so I’m not too surprised Tammy tweet came when it did. Many have reported there are fractions in the team. It will take a bit more than a tweet to convince me. The next 6 months or so will be interesting to see what happens. Winning is just the best cure for all of this really.
  2. Yeah I keep seeing this too I don’t really get it. Pretty sure we were more than 6 points behind Leicester last season around this time or so and we still managed to finish above them. Top 4 is far from over especially with how inconsistent this league has been. Winning 4 or 5 in a row can push you far in the table. City were 10th a few weeks ago.

    He could have already spoken to Werner and Havertz from March or whenever we registered serious interest earlier in the year. I am not surprised about these rumours. I posted yesterday that the politics in this squad is going to cause problems for us and this won’t be the end of it. Many senior players can start seeing young players emerge and cause a threat to their position and future in the club. It makes sense why the young players performed much better for Frank than the senior players. If Tuchel doesn’t band them all together I could see the opposite happening when senior players start performing and young players stop performing and may even ask to leave. The board really have to decide what they want and if they really are building for the future here. Rudiger has always come across as a arrogant player with average level of ability. Marina left too many internationals in this team that were not wanted. Many of them are bang average or shite.

    I don’t think recruitment is something the board and Lamps clashed over. I think our recruitment has been one of the best in a very long time. Where I think the board let Lamps down was not making the squad smaller. There are many average players that should have been moved on long ago that are still hanging around this club. Giving a rookie manager such a big squad to handle and many experienced players being phased out will only make it harder. From reading Matt Law article it sounds like there is deeper politics in this squad than we might know and the board are responsible for allowing it to become such a big squad without selling or loaning players the manager didn’t want. It will be interesting to see what goes on with Tuchel but if he’s smart he would cut down his team to players that he wants quickly and make it clear to the board who’s in and who’s out. To think that Tuchel wanted both Jorginho and Rudiger at PSG will probably mean both players walk into his team. Midfield is where he has the most interesting decisions to make.

    Not for the teams we are chasing. It’s not much of a surprise. I didn’t think Roman would let the chance of CL football go especially in a season as tight as this. He spent way too much in the summer to not get into Europe.

    He will fall out with this board within the next 2 or 3 years. Another short term appointment.

    Well it was coming, my only question why not straight after the Leicester game. Why two days before our next PL game? Him making Mount captain makes more sense now.

    All the minutes Christensen has had should have gone to Tomori. CHO should have been playing since the Arsenal game and Gilmour has deserved more minutes. Frank doesn’t really have an excuse not to try Gilmour imo.
  9. Chelsea 3 Luton Town 1

    Well a loan would benefit him of course but with the squad we have he is needed for this season. Same with CHO.

    Why wouldn’t you play him against Wolves? When given the chance he has impressed. He should be rewarded especially as no midfielder other than Mount has shown form.

    It’s not about thinking who is better than x or y. It’s about players not been given the same chances as others who have been playing poorly. If competition really exists then every player should be treated the same. Giving them just one game to impress doesn’t make much sense when others can get unlimited amount of opportunities to impress and fail.

    Loaning out Gilmour while he gives Jorginho his 100th chance to impress. Loaning out Tomori while he gives Christensen his 100th chance to impress. If he had his way he would probably loan out CHO just to give Pulisic more chances to get back into form. It’s awful man management of players that have been knocking on the door to start. Give them a fair run. And by a fair run I don’t mean 70 mins against Leicester or one game to impress. CHO and Gilmour deserve to start at least 2 or 3 in a row.

    I don’t know if Werner gets an assist for the Tammy goal it looked like he played it across the box but it hit the defenders leg leading it Tammy. Much better from Werner today. He plays better with Tammy in general and we seem to score more goals when both play. Wolves is the real test. I would still play Gilmour and CHO.

    It’s funny how we have so many midfielders including Barkley and RLC and we don’t have one natural DM. I have enjoyed the two of Mount and Gilmour. I don’t know how the board allowed our team to have so many similar type midfielders. He only played poorly against Leicester. In other games he started he has looked good. I think his last two starts were Rennes and Morecombe.

    Gilmour and CHO should be starters. Couldn’t care the level of team they play against. CHO has been better than Pulisic and Gilmour has been better than Jorginho.
