    I don't remember fluid and creative.  I recall  3 very drab games against moderate teams, and some real rubbish oppo too.
    We haven't fallen from a good or even acceptable level, we have stumbled right through it all.


    Of these 11 games you've hi lighted, we won 7 and drew 4.  Lost 0. We scored 25 goals and conceded only 5 in the process. Not up to your standards? Oh well......

    I thought it was you accusing others of saying stuff - you should leave them alone.
    It is one thing making up spurious facts to support your own ideas, another making up spurious claims by others to shoot down.

    Can you just stop it now? You look to pick an argument and then do whatever is necessary to keep it going. Nobody cares, ffs! Enough!

    Lol; donkeys and horses are only used metaphorically, Michael. And I didn't even start it. I'm sorry if anyone should take it literally.

    Gee, no shit? And as you well know, nobody took it literally, but if this make you feel better, then fine.

    Give me till end of the month, and it'll be auf wiedersehen.

    Mate, I'll give you until the next pointless post.

     If you think you've been sold a donkey, then you're  not exactly changing horse, you're getting rid of an animal who should never have been in the race in the first place. 

    You don't improve do you? You're only still on here because I saved your arse,  when pretty much everyone else wanted you gone. Why did I do that? Buggered if I know, tbh, but you're wearing very thin. Be careful.

    No use signing Rice or Haaland when we don't have a system or the players aren't coached. Hoping for these top players to just get on with it and play themselves is worse than proper coaching and a working system. I would hold back giving Lamps any more players until he figures out a system and actually do some coaching. A proper system and coach can get great output from decent players like Dias, Foden, Jota, even Ndombele and then you have what Lamps is getting out of Werner, Havertz, Ziyech and Chilwell.

    I should know better by now, but what makes you think that the players aren't coached? We have coaches coming out of our arses at Cobham, not just Frank. I'd be stunned if they weren't being coached.

    I hope so MT. I don't live far from the tallest cliffs in the UK and if either of those two sit down at a Chelsea press conference I'll be buying a one way ticket to my final destination on the Number 12 bus. 

    Yep, pretty sure that it'd send me over the edge too.....:).

    Firmly expect Lampard to get the sack. If it is going to happen, then the time for that is now. As in right now. 

    Hate to say it, but I'm with you on this one. He looks and sounds clueless. The results and performances are simply unacceptable.  Yes, we had a great run for a while, but the drop off has been sad and dramatic. I can't see Roman waiting too long, tbh.

    Whilst I agree more or less with the overall opinions in fairness it was not a tap on the ankle as I remember it...not looked again so just may be wrong.....he went into a nasty premeditated whack from Grealish...anyone who has played will confirm that even with shin pads the short term pain is not pleasant and enough to cause thought for reflection!

    Spot on. About the injury, and about Grealish.


    The real question is how long will Grealish be given carte blanche to do similar cheating week in week out?

    Right up until we sign him, would be a fair guess...........:).

    I’m not a fan of Tuchel but wasn’t he strongly linked to us before Sarri?

    By the media. Enough said.

    I seem to remember reports saying he had meetings with Marina and the board being open to him.

    There are always 'reports'. Marina and the Board don't talk to the press, so it was the usual meaningless guesswork, and little else.

    I think I'm always surprised how managers/coaches who get sacked for not succeeding at their jobs..for whatever reason...are inevitably touted/offered jobs to replace other managers who's jobs are at risk who in turn get touted/offered jobs etc......

    Tbh, it happens way too often to be surprising. Unlimited demand; limited available talent. Clubs desperate to gain any perceived advantage, and always ready to panic. Never been much different from what I've seen.


  11. Two great posts. However, could we ask that members who want to refer to posts like that (that length) snip them, and don't re-post the whole thing over again? It just uses band width unnecessarily. We've all read them after all, and once is fine. Thanks, and Merry Christmas to all!.
