  1. Premier League Run In - 2020/21

    I agree with so much of this, sadly.
  2. Premier League Run In - 2020/21

    I was nervous posting my response I’m fear that I’d be the only one... seems far from it. I currently feel like I’ve fallen out of love with the game, but it’s an addiction that I just can’t walk away from.
  3. Premier League Run In - 2020/21

    Definitely not the same game I watched growing up, which is a massive shame and makes me feel old just saying it.
  4. Premier League Run In - 2020/21

    Yep. VAR ruining it for me and many of my mates saying the same. Not even because of the decisions related to Chelsea, but the whole thing. Some of the rules the game is played by (offside being the obvious one) were not put in place to be managed to the ridiculous level of detail by humans behind a computer with all these angles and lines etc. especially (in relation to offside) they can’t guarantee the frame is stopped on the moment the ball left the boot! It just isn’t as fun anymore. Whether they do or not, we’ll never know, but VAR also allows the FA/PL/UEFA to subtly impact the matches in certain ways and it just doesn’t feel right to me. It used to be a sport and entertainment, it’s now a business and not a lot more. Add to that the amount of money in the game at the top level and the whole thing has just become so detached from the average fan. But yet I continue to watch and invest my emotions into it? Why?! Yesterday’s game ruined my Saturday night and I’m dreading Tuesday and the sad thing is, it’s probably effected me more than a lot of those players playing for our club.

    This is what worries me. It’s in our hands and with that comes pressure and as we’ve seen with this side, they don’t deal well with pressure.
  6. Premier League Run In - 2020/21

    Not sure what the right team is anymore, we’ve had so much rotation in starting to forget what works.
  7. Premier League Run In - 2020/21

    As expected VAR helping Liverpool out. Even Carragher thinks that goal should have stood! What a joke!
  8. Premier League Run In - 2020/21

    I don’t think we’re going to get top 4, we’ve been in this position for the last couple of seasons and got away with it and scraped in, but I think we’ve pushed our luck and this is the time we’ll miss out. We shouldn’t be in this position, we should have had it wrapped up, but our players are clearly distracted by the CL final already. I don’t think we’ll beat Leicester on Tuesday, which gifts it to Liverpool, but even if we do win, I’m not convinced we’ll beat Villa on the last day, with the CL final a week later. Our form has dropped off massively and I cannot see where goals are coming from at all, not even a single one. How are we SO bad at finishing? Why are we so happy to pass sideways and backwards rather than looking for a killer pass? I don’t get it!
  9. Chelsea vs Leicester City

    We will find out a lot about this team on Tuesday... who does and doesn’t have the mentality to play fit a club this size at this level. This is a massive game for us off the back of two defeats. Tuchel has to just play the strongest team for the remainder of the season. Chilwell is better than Alonso. Ziyech is pointless. Azpi isn’t a wing back.
  10. Chelsea vs Leicester City

    Maybe WBA will do us a favour and get a result against Liverpool... hahaha! FA/PL/VAR will ensure, that even if that looks possible, it won't happen.
  11. Chelsea vs Leicester City

    Not looking forward to this at all. Leicester don’t need to win, so my guess is they’ll sit deep and play on the counter and we as ever will have no clue how to break them down. We will pass it back and forth across the pitch, making no chances. I almost don’t want to watch this match as the frustration may get too much... but I know that I will. We need someone, anyone to step up on Tuesday and produce the magic. Pulisic and Mount have to start and Kovacic too if fit. If we don’t win this, top 4 is gone and it will be entirely our own fault. I've said this before about this squad and it’s as true as ever, we massively lack leaders. I love Azpi, but he doesn’t drag us through a game as captain. Jorginho as vice captain, he’s very vocal, but not someone you can look too when things aren’t going our way and expect him to get everyone going. Silva can lead by example, but with not a lot of English I don’t expect he’s giving too many speeches in the dressing room. Other than that? Rudiger possibly? Nobody else though. I really think we need to be thinking about this when signing new players, we need some players who will get stuck in and drag us through, now allowing for performances like Arsenal and Leicester.
  12. Chelsea 0 Leicester City 1

    Sadly for me, I did the opposite, I was lying on my living room floor shouting ‘YEEEES, BENJAMIIIIIN!!! GET IN!’. Made it hurt more and I should know better, because all season I’ve barely celebrated a goal because of VAR, but it being the last minute in the FA Cup final, I couldn’t control myself. Onside or offside, VAR has ruined football. The offside rule wasn’t put in place to determine if an attacking players shoulder is a millimetre offside, it’s there to stop goal hanging and lazy strikers. Sad really.
  13. Chelsea vs Leicester City

    Yeah, it’s so strange isn’t it. He looks annoyed when he starts, he looks annoyed when he’s subbed off, he looks annoyed when he’s subbed on... be he’s a nightmare to buy a Christmas present for, nothing would be good enough!
  14. Chelsea vs Leicester City

    At least the lad from Bradford would look like he wants to be there, which would be an instant improvement.
  15. Chelsea vs Leicester City

    If Ziyech gets on the bench ahead of Tammy, it will be a travesty.
