  1. Fulham 0 Chelsea 1

    Every single players form has dropped over the last 18 months. Some quicker than others but every single one.
  2. Fulham 0 Chelsea 1

    My first live match was the 94 FA cup final, so seen a fair bit but appreciate not as much as some on here and this is without doubt the worst Chelsea team I have ever seen.
  3. Fulham 0 Chelsea 1

    Personally I'm pleased Rudiger is back in. I'm pleased Jorginho is back in. I actually quite like the fact Frank has the balls to drop both Werner and Havertz, its not something I necessarily agree with but fair play to him. CHO not starting is a disgrace though.

    Maybe, but I'd be amazed if it doesn't have legs. Even more amazed if discussions haven't already taken place at board level. It will take a monumental shift in results and performances for Frank to be here next year.

    As I said said, and bolded it for emphasis, IF.
  6. Season expectations/predictions/peculiarities 2020/21

    I was very much of the thinking that after the City game, we had 16 days until our next meaningful game, no disrespect to Morecambe or Fulham and that would have been the time to do it, if we were going to make a change any time soon. The fact that we haven't made me believe the club are prepared to just wait it out until the summer. The Avram Grant rumours only cement that opinion in my mind. IF he has been contacted I think it was with a view of taking over until the end of the season, I can't for one minute believe we would want him to come in as a coach to help the current set up, it just makes no sense. So, my conclusion is that the time to make a change, if we wanted Allegri or Tuchel was after the City game but we dont. We want someone that is highly unlikely to come until the summer so sounded out Grant in case it gets any worse and then we go for our top target at the end of the season. Could well be Simeone.

    Under normal circumstances I would agree but the way things are at the moment we may still be the most attractive team going forward even without European football for one season. Football clubs, not just football clubs the whole world to be fair, haven't even begun to see the effects of Covid. A few months of lost revenue meant we suddenly had the pick of the best players across Europe, I would assume our position will only get stronger after a whole season.

    Had a game in hand for weeks though, they would have been top 4 since week 10 if they had played and won that game. I get you point though, but we are **** so when I say it's impossible, I mean it's impossible for us.
  9. Season expectations/predictions/peculiarities 2020/21

    Depends who we want, if it was Allegri or Tuchel I think we would have done it already. If it's someone currently employed then maybe we just have to wait until the summer.
  10. Season expectations/predictions/peculiarities 2020/21

    I think heads will be rolling rolling and probably already have. TVF said the other day he saw very little point in making a change now as top 4 was gone already, at the time I didn't agree but looking at the league table it will be almost impossibly, regardless of the coach. So let's keep Lampard until the end of the season, at least then we can all say he was given time, far more than anyone else that wasnt him, a monstrous transfer window and yet still failed. Covid changed the world of football. With 9 or so games left when we went into lockdown we suddenly found ourselves as the absolute top club in Europe for any player wanting a new club, that would probably go for any manager too. If we were in that position after a handful of games played behind closed doors, I think there is a fair chance that after a whole season we will just pull further ahead of everyone else. So, write this season off, start planning for next year now and just go again, with possibly any manager we want next year.

    This. 6 points wouldn't be the end of the world if you were trying to make up 6 points on one team. Trying to overtake 5 is almost impossible. You also can not ignore the fact that we have failed to beat every team that currently sits above us, excluding Leicester who we haven't played. I think we just have to accept the fact that this season is a disaster, write it off and plan for next year.
  12. Official: Frank Lampard Appointed Chelsea Head Coach

    I guess we have our answer to who will replace Frank, if he goes, at least in the short term. I think if there is any truth to the story it's far more likely that we approached him to take over until the end if the season.
  13. Media / Press

    Would rather a coach that had one one of training than one that doesn't have a clue.
  14. Transfer Talk Topic

    Would prefer Mikel.

    The midfield is a problem but not sure the players are the reason. Trying to play a midfield 3 of Kante, Mount and Havertz isn't the smartest move, your basically asking 3 players to play in positions they have hardly played in. Your then asking them to play possession football with Kante at the base of the V and Zouma as one of the centre backs. It makes no sense. If we want to play keep ball then Jorginho must play. Rudiger must play. With Jorginho at the base and Kante & Mount either side doing all his leg work it might work. However I think4231 with Kante/Jorginho/Kovacic/Mount in the pivot and Havertz as a 10 looks, on paper, our best chance of getting the best out the players we currently have.
