  1. West Bromwich Albion 3 Chelsea 3

    In a way I agree, the combination of both changing formation and players positions is probably adding more confusion than needed. It’s difficult for the players to play any kind of style when this happens. We have been doing freestyle in our play so far. We just kinda make it up as we go along. The weird thing was last season I saw more of an identity in our play compared to this season. I’m not surprised Mount had his best 45 mins so far when he played in CM with Havertz. Havertz also looks much better alongside Mount. In terms of Werner I had a feeling we might take sometime to play to his strengths. The amount of runs I have seen him make only for the pass to be missed or executed poorly is frustrating. He doesn’t play as a winger though, majority of the game he played close to Tammy which is where he makes his runs from. Regardless of where we play him, until we have a stable system and personnel choice our style of play will be random and players like Werner will become frustrated. Yesterday he was trying to force things.

    Watching the highlights again, for the 1st goal Christensen rather runs in the opposite direction of the player he should be marking. James is way high up the field as he was almost all game but I can’t really understand what Christensen was doing there. He only has 1 player to mark and was aware of the player as he looks back quickly to check him before running into a position where he can’t have an effect. The WBA player plays the ball to feet rather than playing in behind which would have given the player a 1-on-1 chance. Other than that Christensen had a decent game. 3rd goal, Why do we put players like Kante that deep in the box. Surely we should have players on the edge. WBA clearly worked that one on the training ground and saw a flaw in our set piece defending. Both full backs go asleep at the far post but not surprising as defensively both had really poor games. This is where someone like Azpi would help as he rarely switches off in these scenarios. Defensively he’s still our best fullback.

    Midfield improved because Mount went in there. We also had a clear holding player who was the deepest. Something that isn’t clear when we play the pivot. Kova was better than Kante today. Unlucky to get subbed but he wasn’t needed today. That’s on the manager not the player.

    Regardless of the results, going forward I want to see a fixed formation and a fixed set of players being selected in their positions. It’s no surprise Mount played better in the middle and that CHO made us look more dangerous in wide areas. It’s no surprise we don’t need a double pivot because we don’t have a pair that can suit each other. It’s no surprise Alonso is a awful LB who we should have sold the minute Conte left. Simple decisions that everyone can see.

    After watching that game you think Kova is the one to talk about? He was even better than Kante today. Alonso is the one we should discuss. Why exactly should he play another minute for this football club?
  6. West Bromwich Albion 3 Chelsea 3

    He is a playmaker but he’s been playing like a second striker today. We barely gave him the ball in good areas. We kept spamming crosses in rather than trusting him to thread us something.

    2 clear cut chances. 1st goal a better Gk saves that. No one believes it is a GK problem. We believe Kepa has been playing poorly which he has been. He’s gifted two goals in his first two starts this season on the back of a terrible season. We don’t believe we would stop conceding goals even with a top GK. But a better Gk who can command his box and save us some shots especially from range would be better than Kepa. People aren’t complaining about Kepa conceding clear cut chances they are complaining about basic shots like Trossard that he should be saving.

    Good attacking 2nd half. Don’t think I can get over that 1st half though. It was truly trash. Disappointing to even see our style of play. We didn’t break their lines enough. A lot of crosses and hopeful balls. We have better passers now we should have better ways to cut open parked buses. Starting Silva was a mistake if he’s not going to complete 90 mins in a prem game why not just rest him for Tuesday and give him 90 mins then? As for Alonso how many more disaster games does he have to have before he is sold? I just don’t think he cares now that he isn’t first choice. Right from the 1st min he was ****. Complete ****. The board won’t forget about the 1st half. Neither will the players. James has to work on positioning. He played that game like a right winger. Has no defensive awareness. Couldn’t have a better person to learn from than Azpi. Double pivot doesn’t work. I don’t know how many times he has to see that for it to he clear. We play better with a 433. Once Mount played in the middle we looked much better. CHO also gave us some natural width which we didn’t have. I don’t know why Lamps keeps making these same selections but I am beginning to run out of patience with his ridiculous selections.

    We actually have too many attackers on and no build up. Last sub killed the game. I can understand bringing on Giroud but for Werner or Tammy.

    I don’t think the board would sack him straight after this. It’s a calamity 3-0 rather than a been outplayed 3-0. But after this game he has about 3 games to save his job I would say. The United game is a big one. If we get smashed again then that would probably be where the firing happens imo.
  11. West Bromwich Albion 3 Chelsea 3

    Yeah I agree, players like Alonso and Christensen I have no idea why they are picked. His selections for this game especially was baffling. The pivot has never worked for us so I have no clue why it’s been used. Lamps next few games are going to be massive. It’s basically make or break for him. He has to be ruthless.

    I think it’s mental with this team. They don’t enter games well enough. The preparation into this as if it would be a walk in the park. Awful from management to allow them into such a cocky attitude. I can accept the Silva mistake as you can’t stop the goal after that but the 1st and 3rd goal was awful defending.
  13. West Bromwich Albion 3 Chelsea 3

    It’s the whole approach to this game. We went in as if we are playing a friendly. No intensity when defending. They thought it would be a walk in the park. Trashy stuff.
  14. West Bromwich Albion 3 Chelsea 3

    Now that is completely **** defending. Did we even take notice a set piece was approaching? Looked completely switched off.
  15. West Bromwich Albion 3 Chelsea 3

    Meh, can’t do anything about that. Simple error.
