Yep saw the lineup and was instantly glad I’m not able to watch
Another Willian killed counter
great stuff from batsman on the counter
Kante groin doesn’t look good
Kovacic is so good. Glad we kept him
should have been a goal
Willian is so bad at times
he’s a more polarizing version of ramires except the polarity is always on the bad side
We desperately need to upgrade left midfielder. Dave just presents nothing in the offensive third
should still be 1-1
I’ve been a long time Bats believer but I think I’m finally out on him
Maguire should have been sent off
What in the fucking fuck
Fuck VAR man wtf
Sounds like we are getting screwed according to Twitter. Glad I’m not able to watch.
Scored a goal, VAR review showed Azpi pushed someone over in the box, but only reason he ran into him is that he himself was pushed by Fred.
Announcers were saying stuff like “I can’t say anything without getting myself fired.” They just reviewed it again 10 minutes later and are still going off about what an awful call it was.
And now the game is fully over.
Fucker shouldn't even be on the pitch
Guy should be off. We should have at least 1. Fuck this game.
We lost when the lineup got announced if we are being honest with ourselves. Pedro-willian-batshuayi is the worst front 3 started by any team in the top half of the league this season. Pedro might be the worst attacker to play in the entire league this season.
Frank should lose his mind in the post game interviews.
Off by a toe. Fuck that bullshit
Still on the attack blow it dead
17 shots and 1 on target. That’s what happens when you have championship level players in attack and no goal scoring threat in midfield. The only player that played for chelsea today who is above average or better as an attacker for their position is Reece James. The miracle is that we are somehow still in the top 4.
I can't wait for the day I never have to watch fucking Pedro and Willian again
It better fucking be next season
Was traveling all day and fuck everything.
United win at Stamford bridge and then tie at club brugge. Ref sucked but so did we. Hopefully some attackers recover quickly from injuries so we can bench the losers who played Monday.
Thread showing how bad willian has been. Apparently we are offering him a 2 year deal and he’s holding out for 3. How on earth have people at chelsea watched him and us play this season and thought that he should be given an extension? It’s been reported that we are still hard after jaden sancho and I don’t see how sancho and willian could both fit into chelsea next season.
time to clear out willian and Pedro and build the front 3 attacking midfielders are CHO, pulisic, ziyech and one more new addition. Tired of having attacking midfielders who can’t even put the ball on target let alone score.
not to beat a dead horse but willian has taken 48 shots. 14 on target. He has 4 goals (1 of them a penalty). One goal, up 1-0, sealed the Brighton game. It would have been saved but took a deflection off the defender. Still, fair play to shoot it on target. One was that beautiful goal against Tottenham and to be fair one of the bigger goals this season. He then conceded the PK later in that game to seal it. The 4th goal was a nice counter attacking goal but we were already up 3-0 on burnley before that. He also had another very important goal at lille in the champions league but his goal scoring record is only acceptable as a winger if you have someone like Messi or Ronaldo in your lineup.
Franks press conference
kante-out a few weeks
Pulisic- out and not timeframe frank said “tough injury to assess”
Christensen has a mask but could be selected
RLC is in the squad. Not fit to start but sounds like he might make the bench
Tammy trained the last 2 days around 70% and he will make a decision on him before the game.
Can frank afford to not take a chance on Tammy? We lose another to a champions league qualification rival at home and we will be in pretty big trouble. I would love an attacking 3 of CHO-Tammy-mount but I will take CHO-Tammy-willian. Just no Pedro, batshuayi or Barkley.
I am so sick and fucking tired of Willian and don't understand the club's devotion to him. Totally agree on clearing out Willian and Pedro. They both have some useful skills but just can't do what we're asking from them on a consistent basis.
Crazy how many times Barca offered us a decent out on Willian, but no, let's extend his contract. He's world class for 2 or 3 weeks a season, and then completely mediocre for the rest.
I swear to God if we extend him another 2 years...
There’s no way those rumors are true imo. Chelsea would’ve bitten Barca’s arm off for those numbers.
Let Willian and Pedro go, sign one big name (Werner or Sancho) for the attacking band, new LB, GK and backup striker and I’d say we’re good to go (w/ Amps coming back to beef up CB). Need to see how Mount develops too, whether it’s at the 10, 8, or even 6. He presses well and is active but his passing is not up to the level you want at those positions. Possibly just a (good) squad player rather than a star.
Will be interesting to see when/how RLC is deployed when he gets back. Such a shame about Bakayoko, exact type of player we need but he’s just been shit save his one early appearance against Spurs.
A bit of sunshine tho (the second part)...
You just know Willian is gonna ball out tomorrow, now that we've all talked shit. Just to frustrate us all.
He reportedly hates Tottenham.
Strongly considered betting on this exactly
with CHO and pulisic out and Tammy not fit enough to start there isn’t a non-gross lineup that is possible. At least he’s trying something different. Pretty telling what he thinks about willian and Pedro’s performances against man united on Monday.
also have to wonder how much this will actually be 5 at the back. To me, it makes a lot of sense to have Alonso in the box. He’s the best or 2nd best finisher in this lineup.
“You’ll never sing that, you’ll never sing thatttttttt, champions of Europe, you’ll never sing that.”
Fans always up for it when we play Tottenham.
It’s taken all season to get Reece to be taking corners. How has willian been taking corners over him?
Alonso always reminds me that he's a great striker of the ball.
Edit: I'd start Alonso at the 9 instead of Michy
to me, there is a formation to built with Tammy not starting and CHO/pulisic out that includes giroud and Alonso as strikers with a compact 4 man midfield but this non-winger XI looks a hell of a lot better than trying to watch willian, Pedro or michy do nothing for us.
The one thing that drives me crazy about Barkley is that he sucks ass
That end line view of Kovacic celebrating the goal.
