  1. Chelsea 2 Liverpool 0

    @CostaTheBlue What are your predictions for the game? A 6-0 or perhaps even a 6-0? EDIT: Sorry, missed your prediction. Wasn't expecting that!
  2. Chelsea 0 Bayern Munich 3

    Cheers for the insights guys. Interesting and good points. I think the thought I had boils down to whether Frank sometimes would do better if he was less risk willing. If for example he played more to contain the opponent than play our chance, and hope we would get lucky. I dont know .. It's hard to see how we could have survived that game, but perhaps we could have contained the scoreline a bit. I just sometimes feel we could play with more caution, knowing our inability to score. Its counterproductive in a way, but once we go behind its hard to see us come back.
  3. Chelsea 0 Bayern Munich 3

    Before I ask this question I just want to point out that I am not asking for Frank to be fired. It seems that questioning some of his decisions here sometimes lead to that conclusion, so just wanted to get that out of the way. Serious question; Do you guys feel we would have lost the game 0-3 with Conte or Sarri in charge? (I was not a big fan of Sarri.) I know that we had Hazard, but midfield and defence is more or less the same excluding David Luiz, whom most deem not a good defender. So in my head I can understand the lack of goals with Hazard gone, but I find it hard to justify the drop in defence and midfield performance. Is Frank setting up the team correctly? I read the training were much to strict and monotone under Sarri, but sometimes I feel we lack that muscle memory in the team. That understanding of where we move when A happens and how we react as a team when B happens. Its very unorganized at times and feels like improvising sometimes. I just wonder what's you guys take on it?
  4. Chelsea 0 Manchester United 2

    Home form is very worrying. Apparently we are 12th! In the league when looking at home form.

  8. Chelsea 0 Manchester United 2

    Frank, even if we lack a striker, it doesnt mean we cannot improve our defending and use of Ball possesion.
  9. Chelsea 0 Manchester United 2

    A lot of people are defending our team and Frank. I love both but even with youth and inexperience our form has droppes beyond acceptable - in my opinion. I'm not saying sack Frank at All. but god id Like him to Shake it up, play giroud, do something! When we are Winning try putting on 10 defenders (yes I know, 3 subs) cause we clearly have problems scoring. it just seems Like we do the same stuff every single game
  10. Chelsea 0 Manchester United 2

    Tomorrow at work is going to be f’ing horrible. Third time! I’m not in the business of What ifs or would haves. I dont believe in conspiracies but do believe in poor refereing. no matter What we should have this seasons top 4 sorted. Strange decisions, not closing out games. Its our own fault, and top 4 is going to be a huge fight now.

  14. Transfer Talk Topic

    Its all about the right balance isn’t it? We don’t want to spend a lot of money on short term solutions, but sometimes short term solutions benefit long term solutions. in my eyes it is a big gamble not to strengthen either in first team or depth, short or long term, because only a fine margin separates us from the rest of the top 4 candidates. We are 6 points ahead with many games to play and if we lose our starter in a number of positions, especially attack, we are in for a fight. In my eyes Many seasons we have been too thin in squad depth but this season is even more nerve wrecking. We have a lot of young players that have never played a full PL season, so we cannot say if they can keep up their level for the remaining season. On the other hand our more experienced players are also becoming older and may also drop in form/get injured. to me it seems a no brainer to try and get some depth as a precaution at least. In my eyes we can loose more than we gain from not doing this. If we don’t strengthen in depth and we suffer from injuries, we may lose our CL spot. That to me is the big gamble and the consequences are vast in the summer. No CL and we will be far less competitive in bringing in the game changing talents we need. when we won the CL Hazard chose us. Would a player like him choose us and europa league over Tottenham/united if they qualify for CL? my heart says yes cause we are the best club in the world, but my brain is less convinced. so it essentially comes down to do we want to increase our chances of top4 with a short term solution, and would that in essence help us long term (CL spot secured). - Yes, in my eyes. I don’t watch much football besides Chelsea, so I am not one to say whether quality from lesser teams is available or not. Our scouts must have eyes on good players in lesser teams that could either improve our first team or depth with potential to be a future first team player. if we only look at established players I imagine its difficult to do business in January without paying a premium, but a good player for depth and with potential to grow in for example Germany at a mid level club could potentially be a solution. Bayern always pick the best players from these teams with great success, so in January we may beat them to the punch. I would also entertain the idea of a loan. There’s virtually no risk. Worst case they don’t play and best case we get new energy, more options and perhaps that in turn pushes our main starters to also do better. In the end we don’t know what has happened behind the curtains which makes it more frustrating, than knowing we really tried and just couldn’t make it work. That’s for me is the hardest, not knowing if we did indeed make an effort. From the sidelines it can feel a bit lazy from our club at times :) I would even say we should have taken a punt on Eriksen. We are desperate for some creativity from our midfielders! and he actually shoots from a distance. my last point is about Giroud. How he hasn’t gotten more game time is puzzling to me. I think he’s better than bats and could have gotten more minutes. Especially now where we finally have a good crosser of the ball in James, I feel Giroud could get on the end of a fair few. If we use him more for the remaining season I think he could offer us something still. Why aren’t we trying? It may be that we think bats is a longer term option than Giroud, but in the present he is not a better solution. oh, and have anyone thought of trying lamptey on the wing? He’s got so much speed and low Center of gravity. Now he is off anyway :( Edit; squad depth turned into squid depth 🦑
  15. Chelsea 2 Arsenal 2

    SHOCKING how 11 players and our manager think its a GOOD idea to stay just 1 at the back on a corner, 1-0 up against 10 men. I just dont understand Why !
