  1. Bayern Munich 4 Chelsea 1 (7 - 1 on aggregate)

    Difficult to watch the post match analysis of our defending. Not a pretty sight to see how utterly clueless our defenders are. In slow motion. Christ.
  2. Bayern Munich 4 Chelsea 1 (7 - 1 on aggregate)

    4-1. Thought we might pull it back to 2-2 at one point. Simply because Bayern couldn’t be bothered. Then we remembered that we’re supposed to fall apart. Easy pickings for Lewandowski. Against probably the weakest defenders he’ll come across all season. We got enough money in the kitty for an entire back line and a new keeper?
  3. Bayern Munich 4 Chelsea 1 (7 - 1 on aggregate)

    I think it’s crossing that scares the living daylights out of us.
  4. Bayern Munich 4 Chelsea 1 (7 - 1 on aggregate)

    Blimey. What was that? Defence going into a collective coma.
  5. Bayern Munich 4 Chelsea 1 (7 - 1 on aggregate)

    Not seen a replay. Thought he was a bit weak on first viewing and didn’t know what was around him.
  6. Bayern Munich 4 Chelsea 1 (7 - 1 on aggregate)

    Shocking play by Kovacic on their second goal. Shame our goal was chalked off. Nice finish. We’ll be lucky to keep this respectable.
  7. Arsenal 2 Chelsea 1

    Although it's true the ref couldn't have done any more to ensure we lost, I notice Frank in his match interview concentrated on our frailties. We simply stopped playing after taking the lead, and Arsenal pressed on because they knew they could expose us at the back. Interestingly they targeted us down the right. Reece James and Azpi's side. James had another game to forget, looked flustered, while Azpi's lack of pace was badly exposed. We all know we're going to need some serious defensive reinforcements. All the talk is of a keeper, left back and centre-half. But at right back we’ve got Azpi getting past his prime and Reece James, who's promising but nowhere near the finished article. It's going to be a hell of a task to rebuild our defence before next season starts.
  8. Arsenal 2 Chelsea 1

    Anyone else think it strange that Lampard chose to bring on Pedro for Pulisic, instead of Hudson-Odoi? Not that Pedro did particularly badly, but thought it a sign of how far Hudson-Odoi has fallen down the order.
  9. Arsenal 2 Chelsea 1

    Bizarre game. We started off really well, looked comfortable, and Pulisic looked like he could win it on his own. Then Azpi got caught out, conceded a soft penalty, then got injured. We then lost our way. We were still in the game until Pulisic had to go off, and with it, our last realistic chance. Kovacic was also having a solid game before getting sent off for a non-foul. Second half, it was the Anthony Taylor show. VAR overlooking the Arsenal keeper handling outside the box, fouls on our players being waved away, just added to the feeling that the ref was bending over backwards to make sure we didn’t win. Thought we were generally very disappointing though. Reece James once more taking every opportunity not to cross, Rudiger bumbling about, Azpi panicking. Defence was a mess, but at the other end, we looked clueless once Pulisic pulled up. Disappointing to lose like that. But I’d still take fourth place. Hopefully, the disappointment will focus Frank’s mind about what needs to be put right for next season. Shame about Pedro. Not how you want to end your time at the club.
  10. Arsenal 2 Chelsea 1

    what's going on with var today? Is it not slowed to check any decisions going against us? Bloody hell.
  11. Arsenal 2 Chelsea 1

    Referee doing his best to undermine us. Saying that, we’ve been lacklustre since we scored. Dropped off or just knackered. Hanging on in there. We need to find some energy and fluidity from somewhere as they look more likely to score then us.
  12. Chelsea 2 Wolverhampton Wanderers 0

    Well that was a very decent performance. Solid defensive display to boot. Not too many times you could say that this season. Great free-kick from Mount. Good poacher’s goal from Giroud. Just very good all round. Been an inconsistent season with some defensive disasters. But we did enough to make it a good finish and a cup final to come. Probably better than we were expecting at the outset. Credit to Frank for getting us this far. CL qualification should mean an interesting transfer summer too.
  13. Liverpool 5 Chelsea 3

    I hate to criticise Willian as he’s been one of our better players recently, but that was a horrendous mistake that led to their first goal. Kepa is surely finished on the basis of that performance. At least De Gea gets a hand on shots to bungle them. Kepa doesn’t get near them. Defence was exposed badly again. We played like we’d never defended a cross or a corner before. It was comical. Reece James sadly couldn’t hit a barn door all night. And he’s our best crosser of a ball. On the plus side, Pulisic. We should still qualify. Either way, we need a new keeper, and a couple more defenders. We can’t go into the next season with this lot.
  14. Liverpool 5 Chelsea 3

    Caballero should start the next game. Kepa is such a liability.
  15. Liverpool 5 Chelsea 3

    Would’ve been interesting if Pulisic had scored there.
  16. Liverpool 5 Chelsea 3

    Pulisic is such a talent.
  17. Liverpool 5 Chelsea 3

    Blimey. That was easy. It’s like we’ve never seen a cross before.
  18. Liverpool 5 Chelsea 3

    The comeback is on.
  19. Liverpool 5 Chelsea 3

    Dubious free kick award. Well taken. But Kepa really is not doing himself any favours.
  20. Liverpool 5 Chelsea 3

    Depressing. That wasn’t good from Willian. And Kepa beaten from distance again.
  21. Manchester United 1 Chelsea 3

    Wasn’t expecting that. Formation really seemed to suit us and we actually looked solid defensively, while looking good on the break. Granted, De Gea had a nightmare, gifted us a couple of goals that seemed to knock the stuffing out of them. But players deserve a lot of credit for working so hard, keeping their discipline and playing some really good football. Next up, Liverpool...
  22. Liverpool 5 Chelsea 3

    I don’t think they can get to 100 points now. I only caught bits of the Arsenal game tonight but heard Souness say at half time that Liverpool were taking it fairly easy.
  23. Chelsea 1 Norwich City 0

    Three points. But I’ve had more fun at the dentist.
  24. Chelsea 1 Norwich City 0

    We’re making hard work of this.
  25. Chelsea 1 Norwich City 0

    Great cross by the impressive Pulisic. Giroud finally connecting with the ball. 1-0. A bit frustrating to watch. But we just need to grind out a win.
