    Yes we were definitely sloppy and kept playing ourselves into trouble.We seemed to lack confidence and were slightly frightened of them . I feel the half time talk settled the players and made them think and play differently , they upp'ed the tempo and Tottenham couldn't live with the extra pace..

    If you want to be a 'great' then you do.. He's never a top or great goal scorer or ever will be.< IMHO>
  3. Tottenham Hotspur 0 Chelsea 3

    He does give me the wobbles every now and again TBHbut when he's up he's up.
  4. Tottenham Hotspur 0 Chelsea 3

    Boy in a mans world.. He's totally lost out there and it's glaringly obvious to all but the ardent fanboi's and ever hopefuls..
  5. Tottenham Hotspur 0 Chelsea 3

    Lukaku has poor close up ball control..Its his Achilles heal. (and stops him being the next Drogba IMHO)
  6. Tottenham Hotspur 0 Chelsea 3

    Werner kicking air when the ball was obviously going to be the goalies.. Seems he has absolutely no awareness of the game here.. It aint ever gonna work..
  7. Tottenham Hotspur 0 Chelsea 3

    jeesus he needs to be carried to a goal..
  8. Tottenham Hotspur 0 Chelsea 3

    whatever it was, it was no more than they deserved.. Need to push on and retain control
  9. Chelsea 3 Aston Villa 0

    Our defence is looking a bit shaky
  10. Liverpool 1 Chelsea 1

    I used to go to Sham69 gigs often when the skins were active and fights were the norm. . Worse one was I ended up at an Oi! night with the joys of Skrewdriver etc and watching skins going mental in the middle of the floor beating the fook out of each other, (and more than a few bystanders who were in the way) as a idiot 16 year old punk it was kinda (read: very) scary . :-)

    I said many pages back I felt he needed to up his work rate.. I pondered if it was just me being jaded by not being overly enthralled by his signing: the 98m just added salt to the wound.. I also said losing a player against such a strong team would help highlight the teams deficiencies in individual players and to me this was one of them The good news was the rest manned up and held the line to secure a solid team point. This is more of a win in the long run than the two points 'lost'

    We spent 98m to try to beat Norwich.. Jeeze we set the bar pretty low these days..
  13. Liverpool 1 Chelsea 1

    Sorry but when he was first touted as a signing I said I felt it was a massive mistake. I've always felt he was massively over rated and nothing has changed my mind. This game proves his game is based on strength and strength alone. When he's matched with a top defender he's got nothing else in the locker. Sure he will score against bottom clubs and look great against poor defenders but he was out muscled today by a quality defence and will be again and again against the top clubs. He did very little of any real effect and never really looked like scoring I believe he will fail to shine in the very games we need him to. I also feel his work rate needs to go up a couple of notches. He may look the part but I personally don't think he has the skillset to complete at the very top. In today's climate he's a 25m striker , never a 98m one..imho

    He's a donkey, always was always will be.. His strength is his only asset and he got muscled off the ball several times today..
  15. Liverpool 1 Chelsea 1

    happy with that. Still think Lukaku was a waste of money but it shows someone similar -but actually good- in the team would have been a real asset .. sadly it's not him.
  16. Liverpool 1 Chelsea 1

    glass half full? I think we've played well asa whole but it's exposed a few weaknesses which again is a good thing..
  17. Liverpool 1 Chelsea 1

    Ask a few here, as soon as the penalty was given their backbone went
  18. Liverpool 1 Chelsea 1

    Its a good test for us, if we continue to play well it will aid team spirit. In these situations you have to take the positives
  19. Liverpool 1 Chelsea 1

    It was his reflex scooping action that made it deliberate, deliberate handball in a goal scoring opportunity especially when on the line is a straight red.. Happens and we would have been screaming for the same
  20. Liverpool 1 Chelsea 1

    plenty of times to watch it again over the break.. He swipes the ball. His arm follows the ball going away. He made it look deliberate (which in a way it was. ) If he'd kept his arm still he's probably have gotten away with it.
  21. Liverpool 1 Chelsea 1

    On the line and swipes the ball away with his arm... take the blue glasses off
  22. Liverpool 1 Chelsea 1

    I still think Lukaku is a donkey ... :-)
  23. Arsenal 0 Chelsea 2

    I can see that.. whether there was 'intent' is unsure he certainly was out of control and therefore possibly liable.
