    It is not so much the expectations, it is that we get a player that suits the role he is being given. I am not expecting him to be amazing this season by any means but having two modern day full backs on either side will change this team. I feel like the full back role has become a bit underrated in this forum. The level of crossing I saw yesterday was below par and I would be surprised if people thought Azpi ball distribution was good enough. We attacked down the right side all game long and I can only remember the Tammy chance being the only dangerous cross. Azpi rarely got down the byline, a few of the crosses were from deep which are easier to defend against. Azpi is one of my fav players in this era but an attacking role just does not suit him.

    Pedro was not really rusty, he has been playing like that since the start of the season. Was poor against United and Leicester giving the ball away time after time. We became a better team once he dropped out of the first 11. If Pedro has no scoring opportunities in a game then he is pretty much useless. Barely helps in the build up and runs into trouble. He still tries to play like he is 25 yrs old. Was a good player in his days but now he is just declining quickly. One thing I hope Frank does learn is not to play Willian and Pedro together. Both can frustrate strikers with the lack of being able to find them in the final third. Also taking extra touches on the ball slows down opportunities. Saw it with previous strikers too. The kind of strikers we have we need more of a direct approach to get the best out of them.

    3 or 4 of those 5 should be playing in different colours next season. Kepa was unlucky with the bounce I think he was expecting a low shot and the bounce caught him out. He had nothing else to do all game. He had many good games last season I think he just needs a good game to turn it around. I think the lack of clean sheets will also get to him. It is a shame most people will focus on the penalty and not the poor performances and poor moments from the experienced players. They are the ones that made the game more difficult than it needed to be.

    He was taking them in pre season while Jorginho was on the pitch. It seems odd but I don’t think we are clear in that department. I don’t think Frank is lying.

    So Lamps just confirmed Ross is 1st pen taker. That was silly from Jorginho and Willian then. If the manager has an order you follow it. They should not try and take it off him. Very silly. Whether he misses or scores Lamps should have a word with Jorg and Willian.

    Barkley took both pens in pre season while Jorginho was on the pitch. Jorginho took one against Liverpool when both were on the pitch. Seems odd to be honest.

    Pedro for Mount killed a lot of our game. He was absolutely awful. Forget the pen. We were wasteful all night. At this level you get punished. A lot of this lot will be on the bench when everyone is fit. I really hated the moment when they came up to Barkley before the pen and debated who was taking it. We should have a fixed pen takers. As good as Willian was he missed our best chance and probably screwed up two potential goals. End product will always be his downfall and the numbers don’t lie with Willian.

    Crossing has been awful. Really why wing backs can’t work with Azpi and Alonso. Poor delivery all night.
  9. Chelsea 0 Valencia 1

    I just did not like the others surrounding him. Do we not have 1st choice and so on? Seemed ridiculous.
  10. Chelsea 0 Valencia 1

    Oh ffs. So wasteful today.
  11. Chelsea 0 Valencia 1

    Debating before a pen never helps lads.
  12. Chelsea 0 Valencia 1

    If that was given against us I would be upset.
  13. Chelsea 0 Valencia 1

    More wasteful than unlucky.
  14. Chelsea 0 Valencia 1

    We really are not physical enough in set pieces. Anyone could have slightly blocked Rodrgio run there. Even a slight nudge or anything just let him walk past.
  15. Chelsea 0 Valencia 1

    He is always good at running at people and being electric but two simple passes he could have played today and who knows might have scored both. Decision making can be so frustrating sometimes.
  16. Chelsea 0 Valencia 1

    Ohhh ffs. As good as Willian has been he can be so frustrating. Again simple pass to Pedro and he is through.
  17. Chelsea 0 Valencia 1

    Need to make a sub. I would go 433. Need more bodies in the midfield. Defence can't keep cleaning up the mess all the time.
  18. Chelsea 0 Valencia 1

    Pedro choice was an odd one. If you want to move the ball quickly and be direct Pulisic would have been my choice plus I think Pulisic is more suited to the AM role.
  19. Chelsea 0 Valencia 1

    What a pass by Kova.
  20. Chelsea 0 Valencia 1

    Pedro also not helping much.
  21. Chelsea 0 Valencia 1

    Classic Willian, Pedro in space and he never looked up once.
  22. Chelsea 0 Valencia 1

    Surprised he tried to run it off. Ankle sprain at least could be worse.
  23. Chelsea 0 Valencia 1

    Azpi Chris Zouma Alonso Kante Kova Mount Pedro Tammy Pulisic We should use Pulisic more in the CL for now and Willian in the PL. Give Pulisic some time to adapt to the league. Jorginho could also do with a rest after Int break.

    Morata was a different case. He has ability but his mental weakness is his biggest problem. Tammy will score goals wherever he goes I think. As long as he gets regular football he will score goals. Morata gave up when hard times came and never picked his head up. That was his problem. Once he got some slack and criticism he completely shut down mentally. I don’t think Tammy is that weak mentally plus with Jody and Lamps around they will protect in tough times. Maybe something Morata might have needed from previous managers but then again I think Morata just has a natural weak mentality. Lets not forget Tammy could easily have gone into his shell once he missed that penalty and had all that awful abuse. He did the exact opposite. Something Morata never did.

    That Laporte injury probably gifted Liverpool an easier ride to the title. Otamendi and Stones will be fun to watch over the next few months. Two CB’s highly prone to errors.
