  1. Everton 2 Chelsea 0

    Energy is certainly a major factor though feel with some teams once you get in front they cannot get back into the game, like us trying to come back to conceding an early goal against City. On TV coverage I'm not so sure, unless you have several there with videos capturing the action on the ball and another capturing the players movement not sure how you can understand the dynamics of another team. You would identify players good on the ball for sure. I think teams send a scout to watch the opposition yet I think TV coverage also gives them more insight. The scouts may watch a poor match re injuries yet a recap of TV coverage would fill in the blanks for me.
  2. Everton 2 Chelsea 0

    A few things I have noticed over recent seasons. With a new manager and a new system you can bamboozle the opposition while they try to get to grips with your tactics. After January this changes, the mystique has gone and not only the top teams yet everyone else has an answer or a willingness to try especially if they fear relegation. The tv coverage does not help as they seem quick to point out advantages to get goals, Azpi cross to Morata or Luiz long ball to Pedro. In recent matches we have often been camped on the edge of the opposition box struggling to break them down and being marked heavily with one exception, Kante. Kante normally only has one man near him and not that close. When the ball comes to him he pauses and then normally passes it squarely. I would like to think Sarri is coaching him to move the ball sidewards and leather it or run with pace into the box. Sadly I do not think he is getting any coaching in this regard. We are missing a goal scoring midfield player and I don’t think we have an answer.

    Some good points above yet if Pep had taken the reins would we really have bought Higuaín and played Jorginho so often? In Sarri's defence coming straight after a W/C competition and arriving late in the window was not ideal yet he could have asked for more players in January.
  4. I agree with Sarri showing more flexibility just hope where players excel on the Europa this gets them a premiership start.
  5. Chelsea 1 Wolverhampton Wanderers 1

    I caught the game from the mid 60's and thought in the final 20 minutes the game was crying out for someone of Giroud's ability in the box both aerial and the way he disrupts defenders. He wouldn't have needed to run much as we were camped solidly in their half.

    I think we will still have Higuaín as he signed on a 18 month deal though expect Kovacic will need to return.
  7. Chelsea 3 Dynamo Kiev 0

    You would think so, yet 4 or 5-0 would have been so more convincing, it opens up the possibility of Kiev scoring early and our team getting the jitters. Don't think that will happen though it is not inconceivable. I expect us to go through this round though we might have to work harder just before Everton to make sure we don't throw it away.
  8. Chelsea 3 Dynamo Kiev 0

    Good result could have been better if good chances had been taken and Kiev might also have had a couple of goals. Think 4-0 would have made the tie comfortable yet 3-0 leaves it open if Kiev score an early goal. Personally think we will progress and 3-0 is a good score. Good squad rotation from Sarri even if he left it late to bring in our younger flare players. Pedro worked very hard though needed to score at least another for me. Giroud looked sharp and if only Willian could take corners like that free-kick. RLC might also have scored though he gets an assist for CHO, the argument will undoubtedly be should he have come on earlier or started. CHO came on when the match was open as the Ukrainians were looking for an away goal, it would be interesting to see CHO in a tight match, I personally would not start him against Wolves.

    I'm not saying we should go in for him yet trying to be objective on those stats above, could it be that Ronaldo helped him become a better player (by attracting all the defenders).

    Comments on Bale are appearing quite a lot in the press, seems the fans are on his back. He doesn't want to leave but when the club needs a scapegoat.................
  11. Fulham 1 Chelsea 2

    I like Ranieri, a gentleman in football. I think he got lucky at Leicester, the tinkerman didn't need to tinker he had stumbled on a winning formula, his genius was to nurture it and deal with the expectation, when asked can you win the league, he was always ducking the question and saying we have to focus on the next match. He did change slightly at times utilising Ulloa and Okazaki yet mainly kept to the winning formula. I kind of think he should call it a day now and reflect on the achievement that he will always be remembered fondly in Leicester.
  12. Non Chelsea: Premier League

    In terms of excitement it is pretty good, if we have the balls and intelligence to keep winning we get third. Any deviation from the path and we are left with the crumbs we can glean from the Europa. The good thing it is all in our hands.
  13. Fulham 1 Chelsea 2

    We need a win and better goal difference, Fulham's season is deteriorating yet we are the club's hated rivals. Will be interesting to see what team we put out for this one.
  14. Chelsea 2 Tottenham Hotspur 0

    Yes a comment on football 365 was saying Chelsea no longer look like a crisis club yet now perhaps Spurs will fall under the media spotlight and with an in form Arsenal visiting at the weekend it could be an uncomfortable time for Spurs and Poch.
  15. Media / Press

    Well benching Kepa, and bringing back Kovacic seems to be him stamping his own authority and with the win against Spurs it will be interesting to see if we have now turned a corner or it's another false dawn.
