    Wouldn’t go that far. What today showed is how poor the squad players in the team are. If I was Lamps I would be bringing in people from the academy for Pedro and Giroud. Both look finished this season. Don’t have anymore legs and can barely move. A lot of our game is about mobility and intensity. The minute he played those two together without Kante and a tired Jorginho it set the tone. West Ham won today simply on energy and intensity. They were first to everything. Tammy Willian Kante along with Mount and Kova bring us bundles of energy.

    Few players looked tired today. Think it was a big mistake to drop Kante. The midfield was more open than usual as Jorginho looks very tired. Starting Bats or Giroud as a lone striker is a big mistake. Everything breaks down and we have to change style of play everytime. You have to play both. Tammy is the only one that can lead the line on his own. Wouldn’t have played Pedro. Can’t see what he brings anymore. I think Frank will learn big time from this. Many big mistakes he made today. We deserved nothing from it. I would call it a brain fart of a game from everyone.

    Those of you that wanted Giroud can see the problem. Whether it is Bats or Giroud both would play poorly as lone striker in this system. Both have big limitations needed for the role. As for Pedro it is clear as daylight he is finished. Jorginho last 3 games now have been awful. Something is wrong there. Lamps took this game too lightly.

    This is the game I would have played Christensen in rather than Valencia. Difficult to drop Zouma as both Christensen and Tomori aren’t good in the aerial battle and physical side. Barkley would be lucky to start another game before Jan. Pedro still can’t get minutes even when CHO is injured. Giroud I think will get some minutes.

    Kepa James Zouma Tomori Emerson Kova Kante Mount Pulisic Bats Giroud. Not yet played this formation since pre season. Thought we looked decent in it. I dont think Bats or Giroud will do well as a lone striker in this system so I would try both. Plus I think Bats and Giroud complement eachother well. Can’t really drop Kova on recent form and Jorg has been the worst of the 3 in the last 2 games. Need rotation for what will be a tiring period coming up.

    I don’t think it was Lamps idea to play that open towards the end. There was a reason why he switched to 5 at the back but we played more open at 2-2 than 2-1. I can understand trying to kill the game at 2-1 but at 2-2 we should have settled for a draw. Azpi was overlapping at the end there and he is 3rd CB. Defensively it was a shambles from the start. The pressing was very off and reminded me of the united 4-0 game. These last two games Jorg has struggled which is surprising as I thought he would be more comfortable in a flat 3.

    True, the cross was not really a floating one but it had similar vibes to the Ziyech goal in where I feel better GK’s don’t concede those. It did seem strange the way he pulled his hands out. Maybe it was out of reach but I don’t think he thought it was dangerous so perhaps he didn’t want to concede a corner maybe? I just think when you are smaller you have to be very quick on the ground to make up for the lack of height or have some sort of good anticipation. I was more disappointed with the 1st goal anyway that should have been better. The fact he gets hands to it shows his reflexes aren’t all that bad but why is he not pushing it away from the goal? Sterling cancelled goal was pretty much the same issue. He clearly has a big problem there.

    You could say that about the Ziyech goal too. There is something about his foot work when it comes to high shots going across him. Because he lacks inches he may have to use better foot work to get across better. I do think he could have back peddled and tipped it over but like I said you need good foot work to make that happen. Maybe my expectations are too high anyway. Look at Keylor Navas when he was at Madrid he used good footwork for higher shots. Its the only way a shorter GK can get across for those. Smaller GK should have top class foot work otherwise high shots will beat them easily.
  9. Valencia 2 Chelsea 2

    Yeah I said earlier that reading shots is a weakness in his game. Anticipation is quite poor from him yet he is so good at pens. Strange.
  10. Valencia 2 Chelsea 2

    But we are 2-1 up and sitting deeper. We don’t need pace. We need control and possession.
  11. Valencia 2 Chelsea 2

    Not a fan of taking off Jorginho in games like that. I wanted Tomori on but not for Jorginho. 532 would have helped us rather than 523. The last 15 mins should have kept the ball winning fouls and slowing the game down. We did the opposite. Frank will learn from these things anyway.
  12. Valencia 2 Chelsea 2

    They missed about 4 goals. Including a pen. Lucky to get the draw. Christensen was poor. Thrown into a game like that was odd. Willian Bats very poor. James Kova played very well. Kepa had a up and down game. Hope the pen gives him confidence.
  13. Valencia 2 Chelsea 2

    So lucky not to be losing to be honest.
  14. Valencia 2 Chelsea 2

    Tricky he seemed to leave it as if he thought it was not threatening. Easy to misjudge those though.
  15. Valencia 2 Chelsea 2

    He did mark the winger. It was the full back that scored.
  16. Valencia 2 Chelsea 2

    Mount for Willian needed.
  17. Valencia 2 Chelsea 2

    Tomori for Willian.
  18. Valencia 2 Chelsea 2

    Make subs Lamps we need more energy. Wouldn’t mind 5 at the back right now.
  19. Valencia 2 Chelsea 2

    Hopefully that changes Kepa confidence. He needed that big time.
  20. Valencia 2 Chelsea 2

    Sticks his leg inbetween Jorginho. How have they not seen that.
  21. Valencia 2 Chelsea 2

    Bring on Tomori please.
  22. Valencia 2 Chelsea 2

    Wonder what Frank does at HT. Both Bats and Giroud aren’t good at running into the channels and would need legs around them. Tammy has been isolated for most of it.
  23. Valencia 2 Chelsea 2

    Can’t help feel if Mount had some of these chances we would have scored more. Especially the Kante one.
  24. Valencia 2 Chelsea 2

    Kepa really shaky on the ball.
  25. Valencia 2 Chelsea 2

    Kova finally scoring.
