    It never ceases to amaze me how incredibly daft some of these footballers are. Thats so awkward.

    Too bad we’ve ****ed up his season by an incredibly stupid loan move. He should have been loaned to the Championship where he’d play every week.

    This team lacks bit of killer instinct. We are a bit soft but to be fair that has been our problem for a number of years. Not sure how to rectify this and with the age profile of the squad it won’t come over night. Sure we can go out and buy older heads for the short-term, but don’t think that would be the right long-term move for us.

    Great to be through, too bad we didn’t win the group. That Barkley penalty miss... As for possible next opponents, I don’t think we should be overly concerned. We’re in the CL to play the best, not to sneak into a semi/quarter final by playing the weakest teams. Massive bonus on the night was Conte falling into the Europa. Lol.

    I see some are defending Kepa and especially the first goal (which again was a cross into the 6-yard box). The problem is that the opposition knows he won’t come out for those crosses. And when he don’t, any, and I mean any, touch on the ball means a certain goal. Of course opposition will try to take advantage of that and they are with great result. He should have come out for the goal against Villa and he should have come out for the first goal today. Instead he’s rooted in the line and retracts back over his own goal line instead of dealing with the cross. He is weak mentally, weak at reading the game and weak at his decision-making playing out from the back. He also has weak wrists. I’ve given up on him and just want him out. He ain’t the answer and never will be. Too many glaring faults!

    Well done Kepa - was bound to happen. He's doing stuff like that every other game. Passive as well for their first, any ball in the 6 yard box he needs to make an effort for it. Instead of doing that he again backed into hos own goal instead, making any save impossible. Zouma has had a shocker. Not sure why Tomori is now benched?

    This statement is intriguing. 1. Hasn’t media tried to portray this to be about almost 100 youth players yet the club talks about 27 players. 2. Interesting that the club refers to City. Also here the media has tried to portray it like those two situations being very different - both in volume and guilt. 3. The club is extremely critical of FIFA, to the degree they are questioning both their integrity and suitability as a governing body. 4. I don’t think we’ve heard the last on this. If this is the clubs stance I’d expect them to sue FIFA.

    Spot on. You say the keeper is the same so something else must have changed. I think you’re pretty clear it’s not Kepa’s ability or lack of performance.

    One reason is that Kepa has been pretty sub-standard all season. I’m sure there are other reasons as well. But to pretend his performances has nothing to do with it is a bit rich I reckon. He was decent last season. He’s been poor this season.

    So a players performance is constant? Is that what younger saying? A player can’t be better or worse from one season to the next? He often is and has been for his whole career here.

    I’m not sure what your point is other than (intentionally?) misrepresenting the meaning of what I said. But let’s put it like this. Do you think any of the “crosses” he dealt with second half wasn’t routine actions?
  12. Chelsea 2 Aston Villa 1

    Do you praise a CB being able to pass the ball out wide to his RB, or two CMs playing the ball 5 yards between them? He did come out for more crosses, but it was routine actions. I haven’t been critical of Kepa in the past, but over the last 6-8 months I think it’s clear he ain’t as good as some of you like to think. He will continue to cost us points, that I am certain of.
  13. Chelsea 2 Aston Villa 1

    Exactly. Instead he backs INTO the goal. When the ball crosses the line Kepa has already beaten it over the line. No guts whatsoever.

    Arrizabalaga... What to say, nowhere near good enough for this league. La Liga sure, but here he's too weak, too short, too scared and not good enough coming for crosses for the PL. Lost count over how many goals he's cost us so far this season. Awful signing at £71m. Awful.
