    How many times can our players yell at each other that they are in the wrong position? Seems like no one is on the same page. So much sideways passing and horrible movement from the attackers. RLC and Hudson-Odoi haven’t made all the right runs but at least they are making them.

    Haven't made wolves uncomfortable all game. 0 impact from higuain and just no coherent play. Top 4 on the line and we put up a complete dud

    Shitty to drop points but Wolves are a good side, it happens.

    Stole a point. Not ideal but better than it could have been. Tie in the next game and we still are in decent shape to go for top 4. Need to do better against the rest of the teams outside the top 6.

    Sarri deserves credit for his subs on both timing and who it was and continuing to show that he is willing to change but he also deserves criticism for continuing to play kovacic against teams who will park the bus. He’s not good enough for a game like that in that position.

    Rumors that Zidane is being brought back to Real Madrid. That would hurt our chances of retaining hazard if they want him. Still isn’t clear if Real Madrid will go after Neymar or hazard this summer.

    I think there’s still debate if they will even bid for him but if they do, he gone. IMO nothing really changes on this front and the only development is that it’s not Mou or Conte which would have helped keep him at Chelsea.

    I’d love to get more color on what exactly constitutes a chance created. We have had striker issues all year and our attackers and midfielders have done a poor job of finishing but it hasn’t felt like we have created so many chances either.

    More news the pitch is horrid.

    I think Shevchenko is supposed to be in attendance as he played for both teams. Since he’s Hearn of Ukraine’s national team I’m assuming he’s scouting some too.

    Hopefully we get another easy draw in the next round.

    I wish ampadu was on the bench so we could sub him in. Should be able to keep hazard, Higuian and Jorginho on the bench and fresh for Sunday at Everton.

    A Giroid hat trick and CHO outracing a defender to calmly put one past their keeper has me feeling a certain type of way.

    Arsenal v Napoli also means the two top remaining teams beside us play each other. As good of a draw as we could hope for. Wish I could make the trip to Prague. One of my favorite cities.



    That is the semifinal we are matched up with. Europa league is now our best chance at qualification for sure.

    Imagine if Chelsea and Arsenal finish 5th and 6th and are matched up with each other in the Europa league final.

    I just don’t know what he sees in Barkley. If you want to play Alonso fine but why not start Emerson Thursday and let Alonso be fresh? I think our struggles will come from those 2 like they typically do.

    Sarri chose to play Alonso. We played well in the 1st half but sarri is not blameless for picking an inferior 11 week in and week out. Emerson playing over Alonso all season is probably 3-5 points easy. Alonso is just trash.

    2 pts out of 4th with a game in hand and everything to play for, then we proceed to put up 2 complete duds. 1 Hazard bailed us out of and then this shit.
